The members of the Cabinet are
still waiting for their cue from Mr.
Cleveland. Only one of them, the
naval secretary, has. as yet, declared
open opposition to the Chicago
ticket Mr. Olney, who was quoted
by a friend as saying that he would
not under any circumstances sup-
port llryan, has taken occa-
sion to say that the statement
was apocryphal. Mr. Carlisle, Mr.
\V ilson, Mr. La mont, Mr. Smith and
Mr. Harmon are as mum as oysters.
Privately, they all denounce the plat-
form and privately, too, some of them
speak kindly of Mr. Itryan. It is evi-
dent, however, that the cabinet will
follow the lead of Mr Cleveland.
They will bolt if the president savsso:
they will swallow the Chicago ticket
if the president intimate* a desire that
they should do so; they will support
MeKin ev if that is the president's de-
sire; they will j;n in for a tnird ticket
if that is the president's wish.
There is a strong suspicion that Mr.
Cleveland will throw the responsibil-
ity of action on the mem tiers of the
Cabinet individually. If the Pres-
ident should conclude to do this,
it will on'y add to the em harass-
ment of tiie members of his official
family. Mr. Harm m wants to sup-
porl McKinley openly. He is opposed
to a third ticket. W illiam li. Wilson
and Hoke Smith are ready to support
llryan if the President will give them
freedom. It is impossible to ascertain
what Mr. Carlisle frels i r thinks; all
that is known is that lie is a very
much worried man.

"We have readied a point iu our

What was won in that great conflict
belongs just as sacredly to those who

ineet to-day not as soldiers, but as cit-
izens, in maintaining the credit of the
country you served so well and in
restoring prosperity and better times
to our heritage. The future is the

of refreshments. At 7::*G o'clock they

Kansas Cii v. Mo., July h.—Will-
iam .1. llryan. Democratic nominee for
President of the United States,
stopped over in this city last night on
his way home to Lincoiu, Neb. He was
met at the depot by an immense crowd
of people and escorted to the Coates
house. When Mr. llryan reached the
Coates house ho found another great
crowd awaiting him. Mr. Hryan is
accompanied oo his trip by Mrs. Hry-
an aud their three childreu ami a
dumber of newspaper correspondents.
When the familiar features of the
Presidential nominee were caught
sight of through a rift in the throng,
a hearty cheer went up from the peo-
ple, and they were quickly worked up
to a pitch of enthusiasm.
Though Mr. liryau is but 36 years
of age he is getting slightly bald. He
is essentially a "mixer," but the ter-
rllie strain uutler which he has been
laboring for the past week made him
draw in his hand as the people reached
for it, aud a deprecating and appeal-
ing smile played over his smooth, ex-
A concert was given at the hotel by
the Third Regiment band, after wrhich
Mr. Hryan made a speech from the
balcony of the hotel. A reception
lasting an hour was held at. the close
of the speech.
It was about o'clock when Mr.
Hryan step| ed out on the balcony and
surveyed the sea of humanity which
was jammed in front and around the
hotel. His appearance was the signal
for a wild outburst of applause, which
was repeated at every point he made
iu his address. He spoke in part as
I stated to the committee that I
would not make a political speech,
but in the presence of so many inter-
ested people I am afraid I will be
compelled to break my promise for
just a few moments. (Great applause.)
We are entering upon a memorable
campaign. The platforms have been
adopted. Two great parties nave
placed their candidates tn the field,
and in a little while you, as citizens,
will be called on todiscussthe issues in-
volved. The platform adopted at Chi*
cago is. in my humble judgment, one
of the most splendid presentations of
public policies ever adopted by a na-
tional convention in the United States.
(Enthusiastic applause and great
cheering.) It presents tho^e issues
which in the judgment of the dele-
gates are paramount in this campaign.
It 1s a Democratic platfo-in in every
sentence.word and syllable (tremend-
ous applause), a Democratic platform
that carries the party bade to the
(lays of its founder, Thomas Jefferson
(long and continued applause), and to
its most courageous defender, Andrew
Jackson (Great applause). There
never was a time when the real prin-
ciples «if true Democracy were dearer
to the hearts of the American people
than they are to-day. and it i> hfcause
that platform appeals to the hearts of
the American people that you find
them rising in its support, from the
I'aciHc ocean down to the places
where the waves of the Atlantic beat.
It is not the platform of a section. it
is the platform of our common coun-
try imo appeula to those who love

This leaves no doubt as to Mr Whit-

said, that Senator Hill might relent
and cast in his lot with the sound

no disposition to accept the Whitney
view, Mr. Whitney took advantage of
an irresponsible publication to make
known his poaition without further
In private conversation Mr. Whit-
ney has explained his reasons for bolt-
ing the ticket. He taid that the plat-
form adopted at Chicago means
oestrnction; that if carried out to its
legical conclusion it would result in a
disastrous panic and unsettle business
for a generation to come. Moreover,
he resented the treatment accorded
the sound money men at Chicago,
where their every request was disre-
garded by the majority and an evident
desire ekisted to trample upon the
delegates from the Kast and drive
them from the Democratic party.

midnight some people living close by
heard the little one scream in?. Black
smoke waa seen issuing from the
chimney and the door was burst in
to ascertain the trouble The child
had been placed in the tire and the
mother waa holding it in the flames
with a long, iron poker. It was
burned aimost to ashes. The inliu*
man mother was arrested and placed
in jail. The infuriated people wanted
to lynch her but the promise of sneedy
justice caused them to allow the law
to take its course. She was tried and
convicted of murder i«* the first de-
gree. The parents of the woman live
in this county. She waa married to a
worthless man when she was about 1(1
years old and soon separated from
him. She was aoout 28 \ears old.
A FERRYBOAT CAPSIZES.

Ci.kvei.ani>, Ohio, July i8.—Ten or
a dozen lives were lost in an accident
whieh occurred about 7:30 o'clock last
erening on the old river bed near the
ore docks of the Cleveland and Pitts-
burg ra lway company. The ore
handlers had just quit work for the
day and were waiting their turns to
cross the branch of the river on the
Mat-bottomed ferryboat which they
had provided for this purpose. A
number of the men had crossed. When
the ferry reached the dock the Iftst
time, nt least twenty men crowded
upon it The boat, which is about
thirty feet long and not more than
four feet wide, would carry safely not
more than a dozen persons. The
stream is not wide, however, and the
hurrying ore haudlers had no thought
of danger. The boat waa pushed
from the shore and was being pro-
pelled across the stream Wheu it
was about half way over it began to
sink. Then, as the men rushed to the
side, It turned over. All the occu-
pants were thrown into the water.
Ilv midnight ten bodies had been re*
covered, and it is thought one or two
more victims mav be added to the liat.
