Thu Democrat le National Committco
which met In this city to select thu titno

Thu only other business of Importance

lteprcKontutlvu Scott, of PoniiHylvunla,
was in favor of holding thu convention
beforu thu republlcuiiH held theirs, lie
liuving thut having ttossesslon of thu
Government, It wuh thu proper thing for
tlio democtutH tu take thu Initiatory stops
In oenlng thu Prctiiilontiul campaign.
Senator Gorman, of Maryland, opposed
uu curly convention, maintaining thut
there wuh no reason why tho deinocrutn

thu republicans: thut with 11 late con
vention thoy could tuku advantage of any
mistakes of their opponents, whereas, by
preceding thu Itepubllcans It would on
able them to iiuiku capital out of any

Democrats. Senator Gormun'H views
weru shared by neatly two-thirds of tho
committco, bunco thu selection, at llrst of
