The National Democrats convention has t. 1 cloed its labors and given to the country its platform, and its candidates who are supposed to 9tand upon and represent tho principles of the party. Both Presided and Vice President are practically unknown men to the South. William J. Bryan, by an eloquent speech at an oppoilune moment, turned the convention to him. Arthur Sewall's position on the ticket is unimportant, just why he was selected is at preser.t unknown in ihe South. He seems to belong to an illustrious family, and how he has escaped being a Republi can, living in the State he does, and engaged in an in industry which would be under a Republican protective tariff, is not known. From an impassiva and unprejudiced point of view, tbe Democratic parly seems to .be going into a campaign, con fident in its platform, and indifferent as to anv political policy in retrard to its can didates, or what Slates they come from. Nebraska has eight votes in the elector al college, and Maine has six. One State ia inclined towards Populism, the other with very lew and long exceptions is always solidlyJRcpublican. To those within the walls ol a conven tion hall, subjected to temporary influon ea, and to those at a distance, the situa tion looks very different. For the present we must await details before drawing positive conclusions, but the situation at this time does not appt ar clear, and away from the influences of the shouting and speeches, there is a dubious ness as to the judgment and wisdom of it all which is far from assuring. The Democratic party has a task bofore it, and this will be realized more fully as each week progresses. The convention has done its work, has it been doqe- for the tst, canuot now be definitely stated. Its intentions were patriotic, bat in the whirl and confusion it may have erred in many ways. I fit has, these mistakes will be soon known and felt. Tlicy cannot le reme died now; tbe die is cast and the Demo cratic party is before the country in the clear sunlight of noonday, without the eloquence of its orators or the noise of its bands to cover its defects, and so it must continue nnlil November 3rd. Ncvir before has the work liefore Dem ocracy been so great, or its need of discre tion and courage so iinperativo. The shouting is over and the death struggle is now on. Arthnr Newall. For Seventy years the Sewall private signal was a white "S", ou a blue ground, which fluttered from the mainmasts of some of the staunchest. finest and swiftest mer chant marine vessels carrying the stars and stripes. From the days of the chubby Little Diana of 1825, to the great steel Dirigo of 1894, this house has led tbe country iu designs for mer chant vessels. It began under the name of William D. Sewall, and the house has been continually in business, sons succeeding father under the name of E. & A. Sewall. It has since been changed to Arthnr Sewall & Co., with Arthur Sewall, the Maine member of the National Democratic Committee, and tho Democratic nominee for Vice-President, at the head. It is an old illustrious family, and today owns the largest merchantmen afloat. They first came to Bath, Maine, in 1G34. They purchased the present site of the Sewall yards and home, in 17(32.

Stone of Ohio, took the platform and read a tele gram from McLean which SDid: Any vote for me tor Vice-President is against my wishes. There was much confusion and the chairman asked the police to request dele gates to take their seats.

The Populists are like bees driven out of their hive. Some,-tife pleased, some don't caie, but the moss are half dazed by the platform and the nominees of the Chicago convention. Some resent it aud one of them high in position said: Tlae Democrats have committed a felonious assault on Populism." Another said: "We have no leg left to stand on. The Democrats have stolen our platform and all our thunder.1 Spier Whitaker, just returned from Robeson county, where he made a popu list speech, said: "I am very much pleas ed.

WHAT DEMOCRATS THINK OF THE TICKET. Brice Not' Qnotable. How Bryan Wonld be Received In New York. State Convention Meeting-. Nonnd Money Democrats. Special. New York, July 13. Senator Calvin S. Brice when he was asked today whether he would repudiate the Chicago ticket and platform said, "I am not ready yet to be quoted on the su' ject until I have had my own convention, or heaid from friends in Ohio, and learn wdiat they are going to recommend." The desire that nominee W. J. Bryan, shall have formal notification exercises in tnls city, has given rise too much discuss ion about the treatment he would get from local democrats. The Sheehan element in Tammany Hall say that they would give Bryan a warm welcome, but many Tammany lead ers say that the Populistic candidate would act wisely if he would stay in the West. State chairman Hinckley has issued a call for a meeting next week of the State convention, which will be held at Sara toga, the latter part of August. The gold men will make a strong effort to condemn the National Democratic platform. W. C. Whitney, David B.

Repnbl leans and Nllver Democrats Pleased. Oold Oeinocrais are Qaiet. Journal Bureau, ( Washington, D. C, July 18th. National politics have had some bad mix ups in tho past, but the present situation is a few points ahead of them all. Present indications are that those who have been predicting a general breaking down of old party lines this year will prove to be true prophets. It would seem that the Chicngo convention by the adoption of a platform I advocating many of the principles of the Populists, and nominating ex-Represen-'ative Bryan, of Nebraska who has always m ins state and uurmg his two terms in the House affiliated with the Populists, has made it reasonably certain that the Populists and silver conventions to meet at St. Louis next week, would endorse his candidacy, but it is intimated by lending Populists that such endorsement depends largely upon individual pledges yet to be made by Mr. Bryan himself. Although Bryan's nomination was not expected by anybody probably not even by himself until the day before it was made, it is generally admitted that with the exception of Senator Teller, who would have been certain to get the full populist vote and almost the entire silver vote, Bryan is about the strongest man the Democrats could have put up, and the fact that he is the youngest man ever nominated for the Presidency will have a tendency to arouse great inthusiasmin hi: oenaii ot the young men of his party. Mr. Arthur Sewall, of Me., the Democratic nominee f.r Vice-President, is well known in Washington, but is compare tlvely unknown elsewhere, outside of New England. It is a matter of opinon whether he adds any strength to the ticket. It is not probable that his party expect to get any electoral votes from New England. Ono of the queer things is that the Re. publicans and silver Democrats profess t be equally well pleased with the platlorm and ticket of the Chicago convention. Re publicans now confess that they wore alraiel the convention would nominate Teller, and express the greatest confidence in their ability to defeat Bryan and Sew all, even it the Populist and Bilver conventions endorse them aud the bolting silver Republicans support them. lOn the other hand, the silver Democrats profess to be absolutely certain that if their ticket is endorsed by the St Louis conventions and supported by tho silver Republicans. they will win. Both sides say that all they want is a square light between the gold and silver ticket Whether they Will get that depends largely upon, the action of the St Louis conventions. About the only people who do not pro fess to be satisfied with the situation are the Cleveland or gold Democrats. They acknowledge that tbey are very much dis satisfied, but when it comes to telling what they intend doing they are mum. It is believed to be probable that the gold Democrats will put up a ticket ot their own in any event, and certain that they will elo so if the Populist and silver con ventions do not endorse Bryan and Sewall. Should these conventions endorse the Chi cago ticket, it is thought to be most like ly that the gold Democrats will mostly support the Republican ticket, as the surest way lo defeat silver. If there are two silver tickets in the field thev anrue that Republican success would then be certain and that they could safely run a separate gold ticket solely for the purpose ol keeping up their party organi7ation in the Eastern States. While there aro plenty of Democrats who like neither Bryau nor the platform upon which he stands, there are also plen ty who are inclined to enthuse over both. For instance, below are opinions express ed by Democrats from three states now in Washington: Ex-Congressman Brook shire, of Ind., "I 6erved in Congress with Bryan, know him intimately, and prize his friendship. He is one of the purest men living: the whole trend of his nature is noble, highminded and honora ble; and his domestic relations aro happy for he is a devoted husbanel and father. Feel positive that he can carry Indiana. Whatever may be said agaiust free silver there ia no elispuiing the fact that the movement has the people of the West mid South bohiud it; they are going to rally around the 1G to 1 flag, and in the person of Bryan they have a leader who will strengthen their enthusiasm lustcud of weakening it." Mr. Anthony Walsh, a business man of Memphis, Tenn. "Out side of Memphis where the gold sentiment is very strong, the nomination of Bryan will bo well received by theTennesace democracy. Tennessee is ardent for free coinage, and the Democrats will elect their tickets, State and National. I can't figuTo the possibility of danger in a single Southern state, and among tho yourg men Bryan's e:andie.acy will create a furore of enthusiasm." Mr. J. E. McPhcrson, a business man of Lecbburg, Va; "The nomiuatiou of Bryan melius that jVirgin.a will go Democratic. The Old Dominion s tho oughly saturated with the silver sentiment. I know plenty of men who were until recently advecates of tho gedel standard, who are now Ktaunch believers in silver. I am a convert to the cause myself."
