Chicago, July 0.— When the first
delegates to the Democratic natioual
convention appeared in the Coliseum,
just before 10 o'clcck this morning,
it wis noticed by the thousands of
spectators who had been gathering
fince 0 o'clock, that they and all of
those who followed showed that they
were perfectly conscious of the faet
that the day would be one of colossal
struggles over tirst the Michigan and
Nebraska contests, and then the plat-
form, aud that there was littlo prob-
ability that the presidential nomina-
tion contest would l e reached beforo

At 10:15 o'clock the Iowa delegation
appeared in a body and marched to
their seats behind a lloies banner.
Their appearance was greeted with a
ripple of applause, punctuated w ith a
rattle of cheers which, however,
quickly died away.
Chairman Daniel, with his long
black hair fulling to his s-hou'tlert,
held an informal reception on the
stage. Ai 10:30o'clock a man in a tow
suit bearing a banner of the J.

through the south entrance followed
by a couple of hundred Nebiasksns,

a counter blare was heard in the far
western end of the hull, to the right
of the delegates, aud the Uland bund

Texas and faced the friendly audience
with a round, smooth face, lie began
by congratulating the convention on
the proud opportunity before
it The tactics of Democrats,
not bolters, he declared, should
prevail in accordance with the
time-honored Democratic d« «-trine of
majority rule. He spoke of the pres-
ervation of the liberties of the people
from ihe yoke of Republican rule.
The party, lie said, had made a mis-
take four years ago w ti ich would not
be repeated. If the Re.ui > can party

Governor Altgeld has many warm
friends in Illinois ana many enemies
equally warm and they sprang to the
chit nee to voice their sentiments. The
llliuois delegu<es led an enthusiastic
ch«*er. which was taken up by other
delegations an I chorused by the gal-
leries. Curios ty was rife to see the
man whom the delegates had heard so
much about and few had ever seen, so
many mounted their chairs and faced
toward Illinois. He made his way into

tlierc was much crowding and con-
fusion until lie mounted his chair
under the Illinois standard. Then the
cheer was redoubled. Ilis opponents,
list), wh**n they espied him from the
galleries, were inllamcd with wrath,
and they showered hisses on him.
Throughout tiiis scene the delega-
tions from New York. Massachusetts
and other Eastern States sat in frozen
There came an end to the uproar at
last, ami Altgeld made his voice heard,
saying: "On behaif of the state of
lliinol* I suggest that this convention
givetothe Hon David IV Hill of New
York an opportunity to address it."
This stroke brought down another
shower of demands for "Hill, Hill.
The cha'rtnan mad « himself heard
and sa d: "The distinguished gentle-
man from New York, who has been
called for ho often, is a member of the
committee on resolutions, und is not
Still the convention demanded Hill
until Senator White was driven to cry
app?aliugly: ' Why will you insist on
a man who is not here?"
'1 hen the cry was turned to "Russell"
by the Kas ern men, but the young
Massachusetts e\-^overnor sat impas-
sively iu his chair in the first row and
his friends gave him up.
OVKRMYFR OF KANSAS AND AI.TGFI.P.
Finally David Overmyer of Kansas
w as In ought to the platform and said
that he would not say much just now,
hut later on might have occasion tc
say a good deal. This was an allusion
to a speech lie is expected to make in
support of Bland's nomination. He
said that Kansas was in line for free
silver and would be ifi that column
next November. He congratulated
the great common people upon the
action of tlie convention in its selec-
tion of a temporary chairman yester-
day and said that its significance was
that the seat of the empire hail been
transferred from New S'ork and New
Kngland to the great Mississippi valley.
Another five minutes the band held
the crowd with stirring music. Then
the cries for Altgeld were renewed
and at last with evident reluctance,
the Illinois governor was urged for-
ward to the stage. Some of the dele-
gates crowded to the foot of the stage:
not because his voice was weak, as
his clear tones reached to the further-
most limits of the hall, but to get a
closer view of the man. With great
deliberation he opened with the state-
ment, that Jie had not come here to
make a speech, hut to assist in the
nomination of the next President of
the I nited Slates au I the formulatlou
of a declaration of principles that
would again offer hope to the party of
the people. Thii opening sentiment
wanned up the audience and soon the
pale face of the llliuois governor
grew flushed, his gestures became
quick and vehement and before he had
proceeded far the convention wui
swayed by hts oratory.
When Mr. Altgeld declared that
hungry men and children were looking
to this convention for relief there w as
a great demonstration, lie described
the toll end blood nnd sweat of the
millions which was being doubted by
the shrinking standard of values, ami
then he paused, and flinging his arms
out before linn, asked: "Will you let
them continue It?" "No, no, never!'
came from Io.irni throats. Then again
referring lothegreat struggle against
slaverv he |toluted to an American
flag at hla back and scouted the Idea
of compromise "Did the men," he
asked, "who gave ap their lives tn
preserve that flag talk of compromise?
There com Id be none. There can be
none." Aa he llMiebed lie de*eeMded

he continued and cries went up of
"Hear, hear." "i speak," ho said, "in

Kngland, iu behalf of the real capital-
ists, the men who earned what capi-
tal they could by honest toll, nnd in
behulf of the millions of spindles now

ruined." This new portrayal of the
silver issue was received with marked
approval. "The farmers of the West
and South, to whom New Kngland
sold her goods, the railroads in which
she invested her honest earnings were
bankrupt," he said, "and now we
have finally come down tin our knees
to you." When he closed with the
statement that the seat of power was
to be removed "from the control of
Lombard street in London to"—the
end of his senteuce was buried un-
heard beneath the vocal tumult.
The ovation which followed Mr.
Williams' peroration was dramatic.
The Virginia Senator stepped forward
to seize him by both hands with words
of strong approval, while Mr. illack-
burn, in his more off hand, blue grass
style, said: "You did it splendidly,
Fred." Passing down to his seat with
the Massachusetts delegation in the
row directly before the platform, he
was surrounded by approving silver
men, and one delegate from bin own
state extended a congratulatory hand.

The committee tin credentials hav-
ing at last agreed on a partial report,
the chairman, Mr. Atwood of Kansas,
was introduced, and presented the re-
port. It found the temporary roll
correct, save as to Michigan und
Nebraska. In Nebraska the report

by W. J. Itryan. Tiiis announcement
was greeted with a storm of cheers.
