As compared with nine hundred and twenty odd delegates, which figured in the Chicago conveutlon.tliere are eight hundred an twenty-nine regularly accredited delegates present a-ud participating in the convention o£ the National Democracy.

A'fter tlie preliminary session of the convention, in which the organization was effected and the routine business disposed of, the more serious business for which the convention is called was taken up. The committee on permanent organization reported in favor of Senator Caffrey of Louisiana as permanent Chairman of the convention, and also in favor of ft permanent National organization of the party here represented. The report was adopted unanimously' and us Senator Caffrey took the chair, he was loudly cheered. Senator Caffrey said that the action of the Chicago convention in throwing out the delegates from Michigan, leaves the real Democrats free and none arc In an? way bound by- that convention, which in its platform was in almost: every <ivay un-Demoeratic and nonpa- triotlc. Senator Caffrey predicted that the party of' : the Chicago convention, would be a "wanderer on Urn face of the earth, and a fugitive from polltl- :al justice after the elections,of this; Fall." He said that free coinage as proposed would rot) the poor man of.' his'wages, the rich man of his wealth,, the soldier of his just remuneration' and be the repudiation of all just and honorable debts, "We are the upholders of the old Democratic .doctrine," he saldj "and we appeal to'the people to unfurl the flag of, old Democracy' wIMch las never been sullied by Eepubllcaik, or dishonpr?"'
