Brief Session Today-Com-
mittees are at Work
St Louis, July 6.—The democratic na-
tloiial convention met and listened to an
extended speech from Representative
John Sharp Williams, Its temporary chair-
man, appointed the committees necessary
to perfect h permanent organisation and
adjourned. In a session lasting two.hours
and tlfty minutes. one striking Incident
overshadow•••! all other proceedings. That
waiHthe enthusiastic and prolonged cheer-
ing which greeted the name of Qrover
Cleveland. While the outburst which
greeted the name of the former demo-
cratic president before Its last syllable
hiul fallen from tho lips of the temporary
chairman, was noteworthy In Itself, it
was magnified by contrast with the greet-
ing accorded the actual persons of men
who stood for all that has been opposed
by Mr. Cleveland and within the party
during the last eight years.
BRYAN AND JONKS UNNOTICED.
J tnn s K. Jones, of Arkansas, chairman
of the national committee, went onto the
platform and took his seat unnoticed.
JAMBS K. JONES.
As national chairman he called the
convention to order.
Practically no greeting was given him
when he fated the convention with gavel
in hand. There were other st/Uwart lieu-
tenants of the Ncbniskan, who entered
the hall unacclaimed. and lastly Mr. Bry-
an himself, who for the tlrst time during
two national campaigns, was greeted with
silence. Flight minutes after the gavel
fell the twice-named candidate of his par-
ty passed in at the main entrance and
sought his seat unheralded and unheeded.
In a few moments he arose and pushed his
way to a seat nearer the aisle, where,
standing a moment to give greetings to
friends, he was caught sight of and ap-
plauded. But the
called forth by Cleveland':
Listening attentively to the democratic
doctrines laid down by Mr. Williams, the
conservatives found occasion for the first
demonstration where reference was made
who was giving vent to his enthusiasm in
a manner which the convention officials
deemed offensive. As Chairman Williams
wtb knocking splinters from his desk In
an effort to nound the convention Into fu-
ller so that he could proceed with hlij ad-
dress. a man- in the vicinity of the New
York delegation was motioning delegates
and spectators to continue their applause
and encouraging the galleries to Ignore
the chairman's order for silent •. The
man resented Interference from the serg-
eant-at-arms and In tii•• eel was ejected
from the convention hall. The disturbance
was of a rough and tumble order, though
no blows were struck.
THE GREAT COLISEUM.
The great coliseum, where the conven-
tion Is held, is admirably adapted to ac-
commodate the surging crowds which
pressed for admission as soon as the doors
were opened. Before 11 o'clock the spec-
tators' seats began to Hill, although the
space on the floor allotted to delegates
and their alternates remained barren until'
noon, when*the session was called to or-
der. That the duty of decorating the Im-
mense hall was entrusted to skilled hands
was apparent from the Hist glimpse of the
Interior. The general effect Is a mum-
m th arched canopy or bluff, ribbed and
fringed In white with walls formed of al-
ternate stripes of red. white and blue The
balconies are dressed In white bunting,
gracefully caught up every few yards.
Medallions bearing the arms of the states
are placed about the balconies at regular
Intervals, but tho only flowers used are
In the settings, platform. One of the
crowning features Is an Immense furled
Hag which Is pendant from the center of
the roof. The Hag will be dropped Into
prominence when a nomination for presi-
dent has been made.
The standards locating the state dele-
gations are amyng the decorations Pann-
ed. ringed and lettered after tin- manner
of old fashioned railroad sem i*-Vioi-e.s the
standards extend several feet above the
heads of the delegates. They are fast-
ened to rods of Iron which are firmly
fastened to the floor so that they cannot

Though there were many early arrivals
In the convention hall, the ushers had dif-
ficulty In making them take seats. There
was a disposition to loiter In the aisles,
which continued long after Chairman
Jones swung his ponderous gavel in the
first call for order. The arrival of dig-
nitaries attracted, comparatively little
ALL LEADERS UNNOTICED.
David B. Hill, chairman of the New
York delegation. and other boomers of
Parker, Tammany T-eader Murphy, Mr.
Bryan, democratic members of the senate
and many others prominent in nirtional
affairs and conspicuous before the coun-
try. took their places In the hall prnctl-
aclly unnoticed. In some Instances there
local applause In the vicinity of the
seats of some prominent figures, but that
was all. Mr. Bryan entered the hall first
without any recognition from the gal-
leries. He retraced his steps some min-
utes later 'and held a reception In the
center aisle. Friends gathered around him
to shake his hand, and then his presence
as noted. Tho cheering, however, was
Many persons of distinction were given
aces on the platform. Among the dis-
tlnguished visitors were Mrs. ("has. Mer-
Hale. daughter of Judge Parker, Mrs.
Daniel Manning. Circuit Attorney Folk
of St. I>ouls and District Attorney Jerome
of New York city, former Senator
Reagan, the only surviving member of the
Jefferson Davis cabinet; Senator Bacon
of Georgia, and Senator Bailey of Texas,
former Governor D. K. Francis of Mis-
souri. president of the Louisiana purchase
exposition, and ex-Governor McMillan of
LITTLE POLITICAL SCHEMING.
Little political scheming was in proc-
ess on the floor of the convention hall.
The anti-Parker delegates were so much
In the minority that there appeared to be
-- basis for clever manipulation. The
HON. CHAMP CLARK.
Atter Ilailey's refusal he was offered
which had laid dormant through
tlonal campaigns was released as If by
the touch of a trigger. The name of
Cleveland was echoed from a thousand
throats Hats and handkerchiefs and
arms were waved, delegates and spectat-
ors stood on their chairs, and the Inst
semblance of order was turned Into con-
fusion which convention officials were
powerless to subdue.
HISS BRYAN FOLLOWING.
While the outburst was at its highest,
Wr Bryan's following attempted to con-
vert the demonstration Into applause for
their leader. The name of Bryan was
yelled lustily but In vain. Shouting of
"Grover" unci ' CI,?,land" was renewed
and the Bryan following was hissed. The
greatest significance was attached to the
showing made In the conservatives. Their
ntoolnte control of the convention Is no
longer doubted even by those who have
heretofore declined to be convinced. The
nomination of Judge Parker for president
l« assured by ivory possibility pf defeat.
An Incident to the demonstration was an
altercation between Sergeant-at-Arms
lohn 1. Martin and an over-zealous man
tlon of Ohio late last night closely follow -
ing Pennsylvania's declaration for the
New York jurist and the band wagon
tendencies displayed by other delegations
which had been counted Iq tlte anti-Par-
ker ranks had a telling effect upon the
opposition enthusiasm. Though the op-
ponents professed not to be disheartened
by stories of Parker gains nnd continued
claim that more than one-third of
the delegates had pledged themselves
vote for Parker.' few persona
could be found who were willing to listen
to those who were backing the Held
against the favorite.
SHIRT SLEEVE CONVENTION.
By the time a majority of the delegates
bad arrived at the coliseum evt-rv breath
of cool outside air ban been absorbed.
Fans were waiving vigorously In all parts
of the ball. Coats were not long in com-
ing off. collars and ties wore loosened
and picture was thnt of a shirt sleeve con-
The example set today Is sure
to bring converts, and tomorrow It Is safe
say a majority will disregard the con-
ntlonallties in the interest of comfort
by doffing their coats. The day was op-
pressively warm outside, and in the hall
was uncomfortable to the last degree.
Windows were but half opened, and the
door ventilators had been sacrifled In
beautifying tho Interior of the hull.
CALLS CONVENTION TO ORDER.
Exactly- on the hour, of noon Chairman
Jones called the convention to order. The
call was read and prayer delivered. A
committee was named to escort Mr. Wil-
liams to the platform to assume the tem-
porary chairmanship Then It occurred to
Chairman Jones that the band stationed
under the roof, over the platform, bad
not been heard. He looked about for the
signal station, but Its location had been
lost amid the decorations. Officials ges-
ticulated and shout*! to the leader, but
to no purpose, lie was waiting for a bell
signal that never came A courier was
sent to the band stand, but hv the time
he had arrived Mr. Williams had started,
to speak. Consequently not a note of
music was heard In the hall until a short
time before the convention hdjourned I n
the day. with the exception of thfc tinder
ignited by the mention of Cleveland's
name, the speech of the temporal y chair-
man was received practically without In-
terruption. A few passages won applaud-
ed. but thnt was all. The fault w not
with the speech but principally with the
accoustle conditions In the hall. Mr Wil-
liams hnd not been speaking more than
five minutes l>ofore it was apparent thnt
many persons were unable to hear him
Crowding of the platform made conditions
worse. The police and ushers had diffi-
culty In maintaining passage ways In tho
main hodv of the hall.

Chicago. July 6.—Of the fifty-six mem-
bers of the present house of representa-
tives who hold their seats by pluralities
of less than two thousand votes, thirty
are democrats and only twenty-six repub-
licans. This contrast as well a tho
small number of supposedly cloS'i dis-
tricts, has an Important bearing the
campaign speculation now so prevalent.
It is generally assumed that the demo-
crats can recover the house of represen-
tatives by carrying a lot of districts
which the republicans an- holdlnft; only
by a slender thread. The fact is they
have then^.ives four mote ••.-ifneh-r-
thread districts'' than have the republi-
cans. To hold their own In these weak
spots may be something of a task, to
say nothing of going out after the close
WHAT CLOSE DISTRICT IS.
In this computation the districts have
been omitted in which tho contest was
between two members of the. same party,
even where the plurality fell b« 1 -w u.-
000 for the successful candidate, MVause
such contests have no relation to the con-
trol of the house
The table has also been rendered more
accurate by making four thousar.it the
limit in the woman suffrage stasfc, as
substantially equivalent to half thai plur-
ality elsewhere. Members electtd at
large have been regarded as lose."

With these qualifications It Is assumed
that J,000 plurality constitutes a fa.r line
between the one-sided and the clo* s dis-
tricts There are four democratic dis
triets in Missouri which are heffl by
smaller pluralities than this, and Vet no
one supposes that the democrats will lose
any of them. Such an old republican war-
horse as Lacey of Iowa goes to ct1 )gress
on a plurality of only 1,800 votes. !"he

PERFECTION OF GERRYMANDER.
The gerrymander has now tea.:*, d a
stage of perfection. The**party which
controls the legislature of each st^tc, af-
ter every new census, decides hot* many
districts it can make Its oppone & get
along with and then it divides up the
state accordingly, leaving very fe real-
ly In doubt. Four of the N<w l.ngland
states have, by this basis of rejd-.oning
not a close district In them, although
those In w.-stern Connecticut ma, from
tradition attract some of the attention
of the congressional committees.
California has three close dlrtri>tts. Oll-
letl, republican, holds his by 1 votes;
Llvernash, democrat, his by 141 votes,
while Bell, democrat, goes to ruigrcss
with a lead of fc-,7. In anything I ke nor-
mal conditions In California this autumn
the republicans will recover bc.l'.i these
districts, making a n< t gain of two, 'as
well as carrying the Gillett district.
Illinois has only one close district on
each side of the party fence. Indiana
lias two very close democratic districts,
and one close republican district. Mlcrs
the grand army champion and la>nd of
the veteran, holds his seat by TW votes,
while Robinson boasts if a plurality of
Missouri's four close districts are not
likely to do the republicans mulh good,
with Folwk giving character to .?i • dem-
ocratic tick- i In th. state. In Nel raska,
Gilbert M Hitchcock, who carrini Oma-
ha over David II Mercer, by HiO votes,
due to the bolt of Edward Rfsewater,
will have considerable difficulty l& getting

In North Carolina, although the dem-
ocrats have clrlvii out tjje mountain
republicans from representation, they
have spread the gerrymander out so
thin that It liable to break. Two of
their members were elected by pluralities
of under 1,500 and In that part of the
state there Is a genuine contest at the
polls, so that these figures stand for
about what they do in the rest of the
The upshot of this early survey of the
congressional field is that there Is hardly
the material available for the democrats
to make a net gain of fifteen over the
returns as reported two years ago. That
is what they would have to do to tie
the house. The chances of their losing
In Minneapo'ls and Providence and De-
troit and Omaha and Worcester and Chi-
cago are so great that, practically speak-
ing, they must be prepared to carry
twenty-odd districts now represented by
republicans in order to offset their own
losses and make the necessary gains.
The house may he close, but that it
will be democratic seems extremely un-
likely, unless the democratic presidential
ticket should prevail, when, of course,
the house will go with it.

* MANY WAR RUMORS.
St. Petersburg, July 7, 2:35 a. tn.—
In the absence of official news from the
war Ihe rumors are busily at work.
Reports of heavy fighting above Kai
Chau have spread through the city, but
they probably had their origin in for-!
eign telegrams, as the war office has1
no information on the subject.
The rains apparently ceased for .the
moment but there is a strong con-
viction that on the eve of torrential
rains the Japanese will not risk a gen-
eral advance from the mountain down
on the plains where in the event of'de-
feat it would be almost impossible to
extricate themselves. On the other
hand best informed military circles
believe that nothing but a superior
forcce or imperative necessity as to
the transport conditions would compel
the Japanese to relinquish the passes
which they obtained afjter so much la-
borious effort. The siege of Port Ar-
thur, the juncture of the forces of
Generals Kuroki and Oku and possibly
an extension of their lines to the west
coast of Liao Tung, in order to force
out the Russians from New Chwang so
that they . may secure a new base
there, is conservatively regarded as the
Japanese program for the next two
