Unanimous Choice of Kansas
ON A FREE COINAGE PLATFORM
Webster Davis Arraigns the Republican
Party for Lack of Sympathy

Kansas City, July 6. William
Bryan, of Nebraska, was tonight
unanimously placed in nomination as
the Democratic candidate for president
of the United .States, ou plutform op
posing imperialism, militarism and
trusts, and specifically declaring for the
free coinage of silver at the ratio of 16
The nomination came as the culmina
tion of a frenzied demonstration in
honor of the patty leader, lasting 27
uinutes, and giving utterance to all
die pent-up emotions of the vast mul
titude. It followed also a fierce strug
gle throughout the last 36 hours con
cerning the platform declaration on
silver and on the relative position
which the silver question is to main
tain to the other grearissues of the day.
It was late this afternoon when the
convention was at last facoto face with
the presidential nomination. Early
in the day there had been tedious de
lays, due to the inability of the plat
form committee to reconcile their dif-
ferences and present a report. Until
this was ready the convention managers
beguiled the time by putting forward
speakers of more or less prominence to
keep the vast audience from becoming
too restless. . ,L
Tne first session, beginning at 10
o'clock this morning, was entirely
fruitless of results and it was not un
til late in the afternoon, when the sec
ond session had begun, that the plat
form committee was at last able to re
port an agreement. Already its main
features, embodying the 16 to 1 princi
ple, had beoome known to the dele
gates, and there was little delay in
giving it unanimous approval. This
removed the last chance for an open
pture on questions of principle and
1 the way clear for the supreme
entof the day the nomination of the
The vast auditorium was filled to iti
utmost capacity when the moment ar
rived for the nomination to be made.
Not only were the usual facilities af
forded by tickets taxed to the utrhost,
but the doorkeepors were given liberal
instructions, under which tho aisles
and areas and all available spaces were
packed to, their fullest limit. When
the call of states began for the purpose
of placing candidates in nomination,
Alabama yielded its place at the head
of the list to Nebraska, and Oldham, o
that state, made his way to the plat
form for the initial speech, placing Mr.
Bryan in nomination for the presi
dency. The orator was strong-voiced
and entertaining, yet to the waiting
delegates and spectators thrre was but
one point to his speech, and that was
the stirring peroration which closed
with the name of William J. Bryan.
This was the signal for the demon-
(ration of the day, and with a com
.non purpose, the great conourse joined
in a tribute of enthusiastlo devotion to
the party leader. Ail of the intensity
of former demonstrations and much
more was added to this final tributo to
When the demonstration had spent
itself, the speeches seconding the nomi
nation of Mr. Bryan were in order.
Then came the voting. State aftei
state recorded its vote in behalf of the
Nebraska candidate, giving him the
unanimous vote of all the states and
territories. The convention managen
had already agreed that this was suffi
cient work for the day, and the vice
presidential nomination was allowed
to go over until tomorrow.
Next to the demonstration for tht
party candidate, the greeting of tht
announcement that imperialism was to
be the paramount issuo of this cam
paign was the most spontaneous and
significant of the day.
Another stirring event of the day
Wis the appearance of Webster Davis,
ex-assistant secretary of the interior
under MoKinley's administration, in a
speech severely arraigning the Repub
lican party for its lack of sympathy for

Imperialism Announced as the Para
Kansas City, July 6. Following is
the official text of the platform as
sgeed upon by the committee on reso
lutions and presented to the conven
tion: We, the representatives of the Demo
cratic party of the United States, as
sembled in national convention on the
anniversary of the adoption of the Dec
laration of Independence, do reaffirm
our faith in that immortal proclama
tion of the inalienable rights of Ameri
cans and our allegiance to the constitu
tion framed in harmony therewith by
the fathers of the republic.
We hold with the United States su
preme court that tho Declaration 01
Independence is the spirit of our gov
ernment, of which the constitution is
the form and letter. We declare again
that all governments instituted among
men derive their just powers from the
consent of the governed; that any gov
ernment not based upon the oonsent ot
the governed is tyranny; and "that to
impose upon any people a government
of force is to substitute the methods oi
imperialism for those of the republic.
Believing in these fundamental prin
ciples, we denounce the Puerto Rioan
law enaoted by a Republican congress,
against the piotest and opposition of
the Democratic minority, as a bold and
open violation of the nation's organic
law and a flagrant breach of the na
tional good faith.
We condemn and denounce the Phil
ippine policy of the present administra
tion. It has embroiled the republic in
an unnecessary war, sacrificed the
lives of many of its noblest sons and
placed the United States, previously
known and applauded throughout the
world as the champion of freedom, in
the false and un-American position of,

We pledge the Democratic party to
an unceasing warfare in nation, state
and city against private monopoly in
every form. Existing laws against
trusts must be enforced and more
stringent ones must be enacted provid

We favor an amendment to the fed

The Ticket Filled.
Kansas City, July 7. The Demo
cratic national ticket was completed
today by the nomination of Adlai .
Stevenson for vice-president. The
nomination was made on the first bal
lot, state after state joining in the wild
scramble to record their support of the
winning candidate. It was not ac

stration of approval as had marked the
proceedings at previous stages.

St. Louis, July 11. The strike
tgainst the St. Louis Transit Company
by its former employes, which was de
clared oft July 2, was ordered recalled
today at a meeting of tho Street Rail
waymon's Union, at the West Kud coli
seum. Tomorrow morning at 5 o'clock
was the time fixed for the recall of the
boycyott uu all the company's lines.
When the strike was settled July 2,
there were some mutteriugs of discon
tent among the men,' over the terms of
settlement, and so it is the dissatisfac
tion has grown daily. The men main
tain that the company has failed to
keep the agreement and a dozen or,
more instances were cited tending to
prove that there had been a breach of
faith. Meetings were held at several
places in the course of the week, and
committees were appointed to procure
proof of infidelity on the part of the
At a meeting of the executive com
mittee of the street Railwaymen's Un
ion held Monday, a batch of affidavits
was presented to the effect that men
had been employed by the company
since July 2 in violation of the terms
of the agreement of that date. At a
session lasting several hours, the com
mittee called a mass meeting of the
men for this morning to recommend at
that meeting that the strike be declared
on again. The Central Trades und La
bor Union met later and indorsed the
action of tho executive committee.
The company, through President
Whitaker, addressed a letter to the
men, denving that the company had
intentionally violated the agreement of
July 2, and declaring its intention to
live up to every condition of the agree'
ment, both in letter and spirit. Fred
W. Lehman, attorney for the company,
appeared at the meeting and offered to
submit the question as to whether the
company bus broken fuith to Joseph
W. Folk, counsel for the men, and
bound the company to abide by Mr.
Folk's judgment in the premises. The
proposition was ignored, and by a
unanimous vote the strike was re
A member of the executive commit
tee today said that this whs the second
time the company had broken faith
with its employes, and no agreement
would be accepted in the future that
did not provide for the reinstatement
of all old employes in 24 hours after
the execution of the agreement.
"There will lie no lawlessness or
demonstrations of violence this time,"
he continued. "By means of a vigor
ous enforcement of the boycott we hope
absolutely to destroy the earning copac
ity of the company "
The whole trouble seems to hang
upon a few of the men violating its
agreement, while the company, on the
other hand, emphatically denies that
such is the ense. The men claimed
yesterday that a verbal agreement was
entered into concurrently with the
written agreement and under the ver
bal agreement the company had agreed
to re-employ all the old men in 60
days, seniority in the services deter'
mining the priority of re-employment
It was claimed that the Hev. Dr. W. J.
Boise instructed the men that such
an agreement existed, in a speech at
tho West End coliseum. The 0 dicers
of the company declare that there was
no such verbal understanding and that
the only agreement" made by them was
the written agreement, which was
published at the time.

WEIRD TALC OF THE SEA.
How Stowaway Bred a 8erloat Mutiny
on the Dolphin.
San Francisco, July 11. The steam
er Dolphin, which arrived last night
from New York, through the Straits ot
Magellan, had a sensational trip. Ac
cording to Captain John O'Brien, the
day following her departure three stow
aways were discovered. But for 1 the
stormy weather Captain O'Brien would
have put about and landed the men.
Subsequently the captain wished -with
all his heart that he had followed his
first inclination in this respect.
From St. Lucia, he took eight na
tives to assist the crew. About a week
after leaving the West Indes, a native
told the oaptain that one of the stow
ways was a notorious bandit, and an
other was a lunatic and the third was
an escaped murderer. Edward Talmer,
a negro steward, assumed an independ
ent attitude before the Dolphin was
past Sandy Hoolf . Three days out from
St. Lucia he attacked a fireman named
McAllister with a chair and laid hi
scalp open. The steward was put in
irons and Captain O'Bren and Chief
Engineer Winter took six stitches in
the fireman's head. Tne West Indians
then became friendly with the negro
crew and they worked only whenever
they pleased. ,
Captain O'Brien intended to land the
steward and the natives at Montevideo,
but the United States consul there ad
vised holding them until an American
port was reached. The steward was
released from his irons and put to work
painting and cleaning ship. Follow
ing this trouble the blacks showed a
tendency to rise against the officers and
white men of the crew, but Captain
O'Brien and his men kept their revolv
ers in plain view and fey their apparent
readiness to use them prevented trouble
for the time being. Three days was
spent at Montevideo in codling. In
sailing out to open sea, in the river
Platte, a hurricane swept down on the
Dolphin, and she narrowly escaped be
In the Straits oi Magellan the man-
eating Fuegans attempted to set fire to
the Dolphin as they had done a year
before to a Chilean man-of-war, killing
and eating the entire crew. At Coro-
nel, a Chilean coaling post,, the coal
pusseis obtained liquor and went on the
warpath and could sot be subdued.
They smashed all the fire axes on board
and threatened to kill every one on the
steamer. During the trouble, Purser
Humes and Second Engineer George Q.
Carroll were sent ashore by Captain
O'Brien to procure assistance and they
lost no time in finding the men in au
thority, The nearest troops weie 100
miles away, but a special train was
sent aftor them by the government. It
developed that Humes and Carroll were
no better on shore than tbey had been
on the Dolphin, for in so out of the
way place it was useless to make at
tempts to get back to the ship.
"When we got back to the steamer,"
said Purser Humes, "the mutineers had
the crew up in the rigging and were in
full possession of the vessel. , The sol
diers had a quieting effect on the ne
groes. The striking firemen were tak
en uhore in irons und next day the
court of inquriy was held on the
Dolphin. The court Bentenoed the six
ringleaders to three months each in the
calaboose. In the crowd were the
steward and the three stowaways from
St. Lucia. You can bet we lost no
time getting out of Coronel as soon as
sentence had been passed. I would
not want to see my worst enemy in
prison in Coronel. It is a desolate
place where only leprosy and crime
seem to thrive."
The Dolphin is on her way to Seat
tle, where she will go into the Alaskan

not be identified. 1
Chief Officer Henry Sohaeffer, who
was in charge today, said he "had no
idea who the men bad been, but, judg
ing from the place where they were
found, he thinks they were stewards.
