lluffalo, Sept. IS The platform of the

drafted tonight, will have aa its first

"'The Democrat of the state of New

by approve, and unreservedly Indorse
the platform adopted by the national
convention at Chicago, and we here
by unanimously approve the nominees
of said convention. William Jennings
Hryan and Arthur Hvwall, and pledge
them our earnest and cordial support."
The completion of the first day's ses
sion of the Democratic state convention
has not disturbed In any great meas
ure the forecast that had been pre
pared. The condition tonight, how
ever, are interesting, because of the
Internal fights which, while good na
tured upon their surface, are not want
ing In Internal bitterness. The prin
cipal strife tonight is to prevent the
adoption of the unit rule and to pre
vent thereby the nomination of any
candidate without a fair, open fight.
Particularly are the friends of Con
gressman Bulxer striving to this end.
It Is reasonably certain tonight that
the ticket will be:

Lieutenant-governor, ex-Mayor Ryan,
Judge of the Court of Appeals, Rob
ert C. Titus, of Buffalo.
Chairman of the state committee, E.

Ttle slate has not been decided upon
without hourly opposition, and the op
position Is so bitter that while the cer
tainty of the ticket Is almost establish

may arise which will change any name

ception of Judge Titus. The planning
of the candidacy of Thatcher has been

bered among the delegate, and this in
Itself has caused some of the opposi
tion. The man Is Anthony N. Brady,
of Albany, president of several large
corporations and a stockholder In the
Chicago C.a Company. This fact has
arrayed the more radical free silver
men against Thatcher and they are
claiming many pledges.
The greatest excitement of the day
at the convention was the announce
ment that there had been a practical
fusion of Populists and Democrats, in
which Senator Hill's friends had been
active. In assisting the Populists. The
story came direct from the chairman
of the Populist committee of live. A.
Flske, one of the Populists, said:
It was agreed that the Populists
should support the nominees and plat

the nominees were. If, In return for
this support, they will be allowed to
name live presidential electors."
