Little to secure the signatures of tho

the requisite number of signatures
iav been secured another meeting
will be held to ratify the ngrcoiuunt.
Speeches were made by DeArmlt
Dempster Little Zcrbe and others
ill expressing satisfaction ever tho
'es'ilt of the meeting and predicting
tho success of tho plan.
The ngreemont as adopted provides
for cash payment of wages 3000

tained in tho mine car abolition of

It also provides that In case of the

ment i penalty of 10 cents per ton on

violator will bo charged which pen-
alty Is to bo paid to u commission sub-

Tho agreement shall not become ef-
fective unless It has been signed by

After 00 per cent having signed the
agreement if any .Ifteon operators
ihall bo of t to opinion that enough

to declare It In force
Tho operators with a few excep-
tions want it distinctly understood
thut tho passage of an agreement
whoroby all operators are to adopt a
similar system and aro to pay tho
same relative price for mining has
nothing to do with the great strike.
They wish tho minors to disabuse
their minds of any such thoorlos.
Tho operators hava also shut out
the miners' leaders from taking any
part In the conferences that may take
place through questions arising be
tween tho oporators nnd miners by
insortiug a clause in tho agreement
stating that tho commission shall bo
composed of workmen employed by
tho subscribers. Ilerotorfore tho
miners' ofllclals have represented tho
miners but now the miners aro to
grapple with the questions In dispute
It was decided that prasont contracts

Loan nMoclaiiottft Tho disturbing
element crept In through what was
eonsUlpred it Injudicious reference
ninda in President Iti-own's ad-
dress in -which the president inferred
Hint "low tariffs and fre trade" wore
n decided injury to the country's
business. Itonmrks of tills character
did not tnk well with several dolo-
gntes of the Democratic fnllh. They
said nothing about it during tho day
sessions lint shortly nfter the evening
sessions hnd begun the following
resolution was offered by Delegate
11 I.. Peok of Jackson:
"ltosoHdd That It Is the souse of
tills longiic that all mutters relating
to either toliglon or polities bo elim-
inated from consideration either in
debate or ii.ipors which may ha read
and that tho secretary is hereby re-
quested not to print anything what-
ever of a political or sectarian unturo
as a part of the proceedings of this
Thero was a warm debate overn
motion to refer tho resolution to the
committee on resolutions. John F
Mctliiinls of Alton. 111. said tho idea
of bringing in politics ought to bo
condemned by every honest man pres-
ent whether ho believed In protection
or frco trade gold dollars or so-called
RO-cont dollars. Ho protested strongly
"in the name of tho great West." It
was wrong for the highest olllcer or
tho iiiiiublc&t mombcr to bring polities
Into the con volition.
An amendment was offered to send
tho resolution to tho committee with
instructions to report tho same at
once but this was strongly opposed.
A qtiostioii was raised as to tho pro-
priety of authorizing either tho secre-
tary or the resolutions committee to
act as censors over the papers.
After a long wrangle. President
llrown ruled discussion nud tho reso-
lution out of order lie said Hint tho
secretary could not properly bo author-
ized to cut matter from tho papers
rend. Hu had allowed the discussion
to coiitlniio because he supposed that
the resolution was aimed nt remarks
ha himself had made. A motion to
tnblo tho resolution than prevailed
and the discussion thorcon wns or-
dered expurgated from the record
which closed the incident.

B.w.TiMom: Md. July 29. Harmony
of tho old-fashioned kind prevailed at
tho Democratic statu convention here
yesterday and it was clearly demon-
strated that I'nited States Senator
Gorman still had his hand on the lever
that controls the movements of th
organization. n'J'ho candidates nom-
inated by tho convention w -e
solectcd by him and the resolu-
tions adopted were of his Inspira-
tion. As chairman of tho committee
on resolutions ho rend tho platform
and road it in such a wov as to Indi
cate tlint ho know It almost without
looking at It At his suggestion ono
of the candidates for comprMcr
withdrew whon his nomination seemed
assured and another was taken up by
tho convention nt his request anil
both gold and sliver men waived their
convictions for the nonce and voted to
ndopt a platform that declares for
Tho following stato ticket was nom-
inated: For comptroller Thomas A.
Smith of Caroline county; for clerk of
tho court of appeals J. Prank Ford of
St. Mary's county.
Tho con volition assembled nominally
to select candidates for comptroller
and clerk of tho court of appeals b-
actually to open the campaign that
w ill decide who shall be tho next
I'ulted States Senator.
'liio resolutions which were adopted
without r Miiglu dissenting voice de-
clare that the fundamental principles
of Democracy have remained un-
changed. "Tho nomocracy of Murylund lit
common with the Domocracy of tho
union believe now us they always
have believed in honest money the

tion and tlio coinage of both metals

'We note with satisfaction that the
demand of more than 0500000 of
Democratic voters expressed at tho
polls last November has compelled
President McKlnloy nud a Itepubllcaa
Congress to urgo upon Iho Kuropcim
powers through tho medium of a duly
appointed commission the necessity
for an International ooitferenco to ar-
range tlio tonus of a bimetallic system
under tho operation of which both
gold and silver shall bo used and
