NEW YORK. July 26. Thomas Tag
gart of Indiana was unanimously elect
ed chairman of the Democratic Na
tional (commlttee today. The meeting

place failed. Urey Woodson of Ken
tucky was elected secretary, and
Edwin Sefton of District of Colum
bia assistant secretary. John L
Martin of Missouri was elected ser-geant-at-arms,
" and Samuel Donelson

Taggnrt Makes Speech.
John W. Kern placed Taggart In
nomination, sspeaking briefly about his
ability and capacity as a Democratic
leader. No one else was named and
Taggart was declared the unanimous
choice of the committee. A delegation
was sent out after Mr. Taggart, who
was escorted to the committee room.
He thanked the committee for the high
honor It had paid him. He realized to
the fullest extent, he said, the respon
sibilities of the position, but ho felt
that, with the ticket and platform upon
which the candidates stood, the Dem
ocrats would win the next election. In
order to do so they must have the full
and cordial support and co-operation
of every member of the committee and
every Democrat In' the country. He
promised to discharge the duties of the
position faithfully and Intelligently.
Mr. Taggart's brief speech was np
plauded. Left in Hands of Committee.
A motion was made for the selection
of two vice-chairmen, one to have
charge of the Eastern headquarters
and the other the Western headquar
ters. William F. Shechan, who was
present by proxy, moved to leave the
whole matter to the executive com
mittee and to the chairman of the
National committee, with the power to
increase the number of the National
executive committee and to select spe
cial committees for different parts of
the country In tho Judgment of the
r-vppntlvo committee or finance com
mittee. If such action was necessary.
This prevailed and It will allow the for
mation of a special campaign commit
tee or finance committee in New York
or any other organization that the ex
ecutive committee may consider nec
essary. Bailey's Views.
Senator Bailey said that there was a
possibility of carrying Colorado, Idaho,
Montana aid Nevada, and he thought
the executive committee ought to be
enlarged so' as to include representa
tives of those States.
Mr. Sheehan moved that the selection
of a treasurer for the committee be
left to the executive committee This
was agreed to. It meant that August
Belmont had not been persuaded to ac
cept the position.
The committee decided to accept the
invitation to go to Esopus to visit
Judge Parker tomorrow, leaving New
York at 11:35 a. m. The Invitation of
the Democratic club of this city was
also accepted by the committee.
As to Executive Committee.
No conclusion was reached regarding
the appointment of an executive com
mittee, but It is expected the commit
tee will be named after the visit to
Esopus and consultation with Judge
Parker. The executive committee may
be members of tho National committee
or others In the discretion of tho chair
man. The selection of a treasurer for
the National committee was left to the
executive committee.
The committee adjourned subject to
the call of the chairman.
