It will be possible to A.cl whether

','It .Is, .thought that the calling of

that each ship would .land a't least

BALTIMOItB, .Maryland, June 2S4 The fourth ballot resulted Clark 413,
Wilson 310'Mr, Underwood' 112, Harm in KiOU., Baldwin, II, Marshall 81,
Kern 20. Hawaii makes no change in tt.-j vote.
BALTIMOIti:, Maryland, June 2S - The largest crowds that nave yet
assembled in tho big convention hall have been in attendance todny. Tho
mc.it intense excitement that has yet marked the deliberations of the con
vention prevails, the delegates and the galleries cheering themselves hoarse
on every pretext.
New York For Clark.
Caucuses of the various de'.ogations were held this afternoon. As a re
tult of their deliberations the New Yo.-k delegates have practically a'ectded
to swing over to Champ Clark. The changes to date, however, are regarded
at, or little siBnillcancee. The Delaware, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Jersey,
Oregon and Texa.j delegations are solm for Woodrow Wilson. The vote ot
the Hawaii delegates remains split up as before, two voting for Clark, one
for Underwood and three for Wilson.
Bryan the S torm Center.
William Jennings Bryan still remains the center of the fierce battle'
that is being waged. His friends declare that the deadlock that is now'
blocking any nomination will result in the end In the selection of tho'
Great Commoner as the candidate of. the Democratic party. Bryan him-'
self says that he achieved a great vlctor. ln tnc jms8aRe 0f the Morgan
resolution placing the convention on record for progrossivism. Bryan re
fuses to commit himself as to the possibilities of himself and his friends
bolting the convention.
Give and Take.
It Is not believed that the Hop of the New York delegation to Clark
will. make any appreciable difference in tho relative standing of Clark and
Wilson, as It will bo offset by the stand ot Illinois and Indiana, that ha7o
turned to Wilson.
Platform Strongly Progressive.
The plntform to be presented tQ mo convention will leave tho ques
tions of woman suffrage, the initiative and refrendum and tho recall
to the decision of the several states The platform is regarded as strong
ly progressive, making a strong effort to appeal to the adherents of tho
now party created by the bolt of Roosevelt and his followers at Chicago
Inst week. It contains a positive declaration In favor of downward re-
' vision of the tariff to u revenue only basis. It will probably contain a
financial plnnk declaring against Rx-Senjator Aldrich's central bank re
serve plan.- Tho pKitform will arso put the Democratic party on record as
demanding tirimlnal prosecutions o f violators of the anU-trust laws.
The Third Ballot.
BALTIMOUF, Mil., June 2S. Th? third ballot ot the Democratic con
vention for a presidential nominee, taken Into this afternoon, showed Wood
row Wilson gaining very slightly, at tho expense of Clark, who led from
the start. The other candidates about held their own.

ing, with Wlison second, the figures being 110 1-2 to .'!24. On tho second
ballot, taken this afternoon Clark increased to 110 nnd Wilson to 339,
while on tho third ballot Clark dropped to 411, and Wilson rose to 315.

one delegate on th0 first ballot, two on the second and on0 on the third.
