JAMES S. SHE1AN
FOR SECOND PUCE
New York Congressman Has
Easy Victory on the First
COMPLIMENTARY VOTES FOR
GUILD, MURPHY, SHELDON
Interest Now Centers in Commit
tee's Choice of Man to Man
! age the Campaign.
CHICAGO, Juno 19. Taft and Sher
man. This is the ticket of the Repub
lican party flung to tho breeze today
as tho Republican national convention
concluded with tho nomination of James
S. Sherman of New York for Vice
President amid a final roar of tumultu
ous demonstration. Again the vast as
sembly was swept with wavo on wave
of wild, exultant clamor, as the multi
tude, realizing that nt last the work was
done and tho record made upon which
the Ropublican party goes before tho
o.oitntr-, united in one laijl mighty out
burst of enthusiastic tributo lo the men
who will bear forward the standard in
the struggle now at hand.
Much Interest Manifest.
Another inspiring picture was pre
sented today as 'the convention named
its candidate for Vice-President. The
enormous throngs had waited through
an hour of oratory, sweltering in tho
licat-Iaden atmosphere. iaeked as before
into solid masses of hunianitj, with
only hero and there a few vacant spots
in the remote gallery the dclpgules in
the broad arena below t he bright-hucd
lines of feminity in lie circling gal
leries and over all the enveloping folds
of "Old Glory." From the outset, it
was distinctly a Sherman crowd, with
galleries already trained into choruses
of Sherman songs and an invading host
of Sherman marchers starting the echoes
ringing with a huge portrait of the New
York candidate. Among the early ar
rivals on the door was Speaker ' Can
non, only yesterday a candidate for
President, but today here and a pillar
of strength in the Sherman movement.
The. widespread affection of tho old war
horse of the party was also shown by
the crowds of! delegates surging about
him to grasp his hand and bid him wel
come. Soon Down to Business.
The preliminaries were .brief and at
10:30. (l)e.,nojuini.ting spfatoh'. fqTjtiqpRi
' President began, with' a limit of ten
minutes to each spcakor. On the call
of Slates Delaware yielded lo New
York, and ox-Governor Timothy. L.
Woodruff mounterl the platform "for a
I glowing speech placing in nomination
Sherman as New York's choice for the
j Vico-Prosidency. Now came a sur
i prise, as I he venerable Cannon, with hi'
' Lincoln-like visage and shaggy beard,
emerged from the Illinois delegation,
I and, stepping to the- platform, was
t yielded unanimous conseut lo second tho
j nomination of Sherman. Such a pic
j turo of sturdy, homely, plain American
citizenship as Cannon appeared as ho
advanced berore the throng which rose
to do him homage has seldom been neon
before a national convention. His face
was beaded with sweat, his collar had
melted to a rag which hung limp about
his neck. His vest was thrown wide
open, exposing a crumpled shirt, and
the sleeves of his black alpaca coat
curled up about, his dangling cuffs to
his elbows as his waving arms empha
sized his ringing words for his col
league and friend James S. Sherman
of New York.
Nothing but Sherman.
From the outbursts of enthusiasm
which greeted every mention' of Sher
man's name it was plain that ibe mind
of the convention had been made up
and that the decision was only to .be re
corded. Iiut for a moment there was a
halt in the Sherman movement, as Sena
tor Lodge, leaving the presiding offi
cer's chair, advanced to nominate Gov
ernor Guild of Massachusetts for tho'
Vice-Presidency. The Senator's voice
was strained with the exertion of re
I cent days, but ho spoke eloquently and
I forcibly for the Massachusetts candi
' dare. "Michigan, through Cliaso Os
1 borne, added his voice for Guild and
; New Jersey brought forward her favor-
ite son in a speech by ThomaH M. Mc
, Carter nominating ex-Governor Murphy
i of New Jersey for the second place on
i Tho steady advance of tho Sherman
movement now began again as State

! linn, in a ringing speech from the floor
by Harry Skinner; Oklahoma by Dennis
T. Flynii: Pennsylvania by Congressman
Myron Olnistoad; Tennessee by TI. Clay
Kvans; Yirginia by C. U. Slcmp.
! Vote Nearly Unanimous.
' Now began tho vole, laken amid
! confusion at first, which increased as
I the totals climbed upward to the nomi
! nating point. The result was never in
doubt as the totals of States wero
heaped one upon another. There wero
I scattering votow, but the great body of i
delegates swelled the total of Sherman
until it touched Sl(i. "With keen appre
ciation of the effect of climax, Chair
man Lodge announced the result, reserv
ing Sherman's huge total until tho
"Vice-President Fairbanks tjcts one
vote, Governor Sheldon of Nebraska
ion votes, Governor Curtis Guild of
Massachusetts seventy-five votes, Gov
ernor .Murphy of New .Jersey seventy
soven voles, and James S. Sherman of
Now York S10 votes."
Work Soon Completed.
After this the floodgates of wild enthu
siasm wero let loose as floor and gallery
ioincd in a pandemonium of demonstra
tion for the nominee. Tho nominations
completed., final details were now quick
lv perfected committees from the vari
ous States to wait upon tho candidates
for President and Vice-Prosident and

CHICAGO, Juno 19. Eight members llll
of the Republican committco left Chi-. . JijH
cago tonight for Cincinnati to confer ijil
with Secretary Taft concerning tho
selection of a National chairman to! B
manage the Republican campaign. Tho 1 H
subcommittee was appointed at tho sug- jKf H
gcslion of Secretary Taft, who is said il H
to bo somewhat embarrassed by appeal a IS.'I
from his friends in Ohio for the ap- tl
pointmcnt of Arthur Vorys or of Myron; LII
T. Ilcrrick of that State, and by tho i'lH
demand made in a petition by a ma- il
jority of the members of the National ll
committco for tho appointment of j i H
Frank H. Hitchcock. Tho latter, bo- '1
cause of bis success in 'the Taft cam- j '
paigu for delegates, is being strongly j" -H
pushed 1)3' his friends, whilo those wha il
are personally attached to Mr. Voryi
have announced that they intend ta it-H
make efforts in his behalf. il'l

Congressman James S. Sherman of r
New Yo'rkj who was today nouiiuatcd j
for tho ice-Presidency, accompanied jj' IH
tho subcommittee to Cincinnati. L'lH
Tho men who will confer with Sec- f H
rotar3' Taft in regard to tho chairman- ,1 'H

Myron T. Ilcrrick of Ohio, Frank B.
Kellogg of Minnesota, Charles Nagle or

V. E. Borah of Idaho. E. C. Duncan of I
North Carolina and Frank O. Lowdca .
Tho subcommittee was selected when' UH
the new National committee was or- THH
ganized immediately nfter the. adjourn- i 'lH
nient of the convention. Friends of
I Hitchcock insist that more than half oi 1
I tho eight mohibers will vote to elect I'.H

Keen interest in tho selection of a . tl'H
political manager for Secretary Taft , '
is taken by Charles P. Taft of Ohio, ami I
Henri" W. Taft of Now York, brothers '
of tho Republican nominee. In view I
of the fact that Mr. Hitchcock and Mr. 1
Vorys both have strong followings. an V
effo"rt was mado todav by Charles P. J
Taft to have both withdraw from tho (
race. The suggestion that this course Bl
be taken, whou mado to Mr. Hitchcock, j'1
caused him to state that he had at uo v

with his friends.
Mr. Hitchcock, in his reply to Charles i
P. Taft, said that whilo ho would not
ask for the chairmanship, ho would not
consent to accept a subordinate station. , flH
He said that ho had been invited to par- ,1
ticipate iu tho pro-convention campaign
and had served to the best of his abil-
ily, but that his work was ovor uuloss 1 j

All of the members of the committee,' .1
however, do not understand tho author-. . B

tho sub-commit fee has tho authority to, j '.M

declares whom he favors. Any choice,' ) "i
tho Secret ar' may express will be nc- i l 'l
cepted. That ho will indicate prefer- it "1
euces for chairman and treasurer is nob 'j ,iH
doubted, but it is likely that a mooting ' ll
of tho full committee will bo called to ikr-il
fill thoso positions, in the event that Mr. r JH
Taft does not express a preferoucc.. . ,( jl
Tho secretaryship and the position ' iH
of Horgoant-at arms were settled by tho J 'H
election of Elmer Dover of Ohio ami! ), iH
William F. Stone of Maryland to succeed ' HH
themselves as secretary aud sergeant- i Tij

Clayton of Arkansas was chosen to. act jjl
as chairman until a permanent official i Bl
is named. ' H
Tho motion to create the sub-commit- jl

Ohio, and included 'the names of tho , 1
