NOT A SINGLE
MEETING OF THE DEMOCRATIC
Bryan was Beset by Men of Both Side* of
the Chicago Democracy—Decided to At-
tend the Big Meeting—Editor Delvln De-
posed by the National Committee
Chicago, July 20—No friction devel-
oped at the meeting of tbe Democratic
national committee today and the men
who made snch belligerent assertions
last night failed to make them good to-
day. Not a single warlike note was
sonnded and no defiances were ottered
either by the men who demand that
“16 to 1” shall be the rallying cry in
the next campaign, or by those who op-
posed the adoption. The only move-
ment made by silver men looking to'
ward recognition by the national com-
mittee was during the afternoon, when
the Ohio Valley Bimetallic league was
admitted to the committee rooms and
James P. Tarvin, of Kentucky, acting
as spokesman, read resolutions adopted
by the committee earlier in the day.
These resolutions demanded there be
inserted in the next Democratic nation-
al platform planks opposing trusts and
imperialism, and adhering to silver at
the ratio of 16 to 1. “And along these
lines we offer you our aid,” said Tarvin,
there being a defiant accent upon the
word “these" that seemed to imply that
the support of bimetallists could be
secured along no other lines that these
marked out, but of this the committee
took no notice.
The Ohio Valley Bi-Metallic league was
courteously thanked for its proffer of
assistance and assured that it would be
called upon at such times as the nation-
al oommittee felt in need of its assis-
tance. That was the beginning and
end of the silver episode.
The fight against P. J. Delvin, editor
of tbe press bureau of the national
committee, was brought to a finish, the
Harrison faction, of Illinois, securing
his desposition for the part taken by
him, as an officer of the national com-
mittee in the last mayoralty election in
Chicago. Be.voud making several
changes in the rules governing the com-
mute nothing else was done during the
day. Congressman Furgerson, of New
Mexico, was elected to fill the vacancy
from that territory caused by the resig-
nation of F. A. Manzanares.
The fight between the Illinois factions
began as soon as Bryan arrived in the
city. He was immediately beset by
men of both sides, the Altgeld faction
asking him to be at the meeting with-
out fail, and Harrison men asking that
he remain away from the Auditorium
altogether. Bryan was in a dilemma,
and for a long time would not declare
himself as being in favor of the meet-
ing or not. He said he had accepted
an invitation for the meeting and there
wae no apparent reason why he should
decline at the last moment at the de-
demand of a political faction hostile to
that which had invited him to the city.
Altgeld sent word to Bryan if he con-
sidered his attendance at the meeting
would embarrass! him he could feel
at perfect liberty to remain away. The
meeting could get along without him.
This message was declared by Altgeld
kept in front of the final heat from the
first eighth to the three quarters, when
Royal Baron’s rash again came into
evidence and landed him over the wire
a head to the good.
Amid the cheers of more than 8,000
people present, the winner was led away

Thirty-four Article** of the Arbitration
The Hague, July 20—The first com-
mittee of the international peace con-
ference met today. M. Von Karnebeck
representing Holland, submitted amend-
ments to his report, omitting the pro-
hibition clause from the first four points
of Count Muravieffs circular, but ex-
pressing a desire that the remaining
three points be made the subject of a
formal convention. A long discussion
followed, after which the committee
unanimously supported the proposition
prohibiting the firing of explosives from
balloons. The delegates representing
the United States and Great Britain
voted together against the prohibition
of tbe use of asphyxiating gases and
Because unanimity was impossible,
Captain Mahan, of the American dele-
gation, declared he oould not modify
his views and that he would maintain
his previous attitude.
Tbe Ameriotn delegates explains
they had voted with the British delega
tion on the subject of expansive re
suits because they did not wish to mod-
ify their objection of any kind of restric-
tion upon the production of war mate
Captain Mahan and Sir Julian Paun-
ceforte finally moved a suppression of
the clause for proposing a formal con-
vention upon the other three points of
the Muravieff circular. This was
agreed to and an amended report will
be submitted to the full conference to-
morrow when it will be decided whether
a conclusion of the convention upon the
three disputed points is possible.
A fresh convention adopting the naval
warfare of the Geneva convention of
1864 will also be submitted to the con-

four articles of the arbitration scheme,

by the attorney general himself, who
returned to the city this evening, and
who, when inquired of on the subject,
made it plain that his wishes were he
should not be considered in this con-
nection. The attorney general has no
thought of becoming Alger’s successor,
and it is almost certain he would de-
cline the war portfolio should the pres-
ident tender it to him.
RIOTING AT CLEVELAND.
Cars Stoned and Obstructions Placed On
Cleveland, Ohio, July 20—Several
small riots occurred today. A crowd of
300 attacked a car in South Clevelan i
where the track had been obstructed.
A conductor with a revolver held the
mob at bay while the motorman re-
moved the obstructions, and the oar
proceeded. Another car was stoned at
the same place later. Another mob at-
tacked a car near the Petrie street
bridge. The windows were smashed
but nobody was hurt. About 9 o’clock

was a message of sarcasm which meant
if Bryan was afraid to keep his word to
address the meeting, it would be a suc-
cess without his presence. It was late
in the afternoon before Bryan made up
his mind as to the meeting. Harrison
people, who were in good humor over
the defeat of Devlin before the commit-
tee, fiually announced he might attend
the meeting without causing any hos-
tility to himself in the Harrison oamp.
This message, however, had nothing to
do with the intention reached by Bryan
regarding the meeting, for he had de-
cided to attend before it reached him.
ROYAL BARON WON.
Big Attendance at the Bacei*__Another
Race Saturday. ,
Detroit, Mioh., July 20—Again the
unexpected happened in the Merchants
and Manufacturers $10,000 trotting
stake. This afternoon Royal Baron, a
comparative outsider, became the win-
ner of the rich prize. But it was not
won without effort, for never was there
a finer tsruggle in a horse race than the
one put up by Kingman, who won two
of the heats and finished the second in
the other five. Royal Baron is a six,
year-old bay horse, bred in Kentucky
and is the property of N. W. Hubiu-
ger, of New Haven. The first money
won by Royal Baron amounts to $5,460.
The $2,000 consolation will be trotted
When the Merchants and Manufac
tnrers stake called at 12:35 o'clock, the
four heat winners of yesterdav and three
less fortunate horses faced Starter
Hayt. After scoring for the fifth time
they were given the word and King-
mond went out iu front and stayed
there, winning all the way,although Suc-
cess was always close enough to be
dangerous. Before the next heat, all but
four of the heat winers were withdrawn.
Just as they went away, King mond
broke and before he got down, the oth-
ers obtained a good lead. The Queen

Earlier in the evening a mob attacked
a cross town car on Wilson avenue.
Stones were thrown at the non union
conductor and the motorman fired his
revolver at the crowd. It is said a
woman was shot through the wrist, but
the police deny that. About the same
time all the available police on duty in
the down town district were called to
the Humboldt street viaduct, where a
riot was in progress. A crowd of a
thousand were engaged in piling ob-
structions on the track.
Ropes were thrown over the trolley
wires in an attempt to pull them down.
Three patrol wagon loads of polioe re •
Bponded to the call and the mob was
dispersed. It is feared more damage
will be done before morning.

sentative of the Neu Freife Freese to-

he expected to be developed from the
international peace conference at The
“ Who is to disarm first ? The experi •

time and how we had to fear the issue.
We now think differentlv and are build-

taken by surprise and found unprepar-
ed again; and it is hard to believe, in
view of our terrific exertions, that other
powers will abandon the advantages of
their armament and give them up.”
