PROGRESSIVES WIN WILSON NOMINATDy
Woodrow Wilson, governor of
New Jersey, was nominated as
Democratic candidate for presi
dent on the forty-sixth ballot this
afternoon. " -
It was a great victory for Wil
liam. Jennings Bryan, a great vic
tory for the progressives.
It was a great defeat for the
bosses, or the Old Guard of the
Democratic party, that had ruled
so long.
It was a great defeat for Wil
liam Randolph Hearst, who
threw all his eggs in one basket
Champ Clarkr and then found
the basket had no "bottom.
It was a great defeat for the
'Associated Press, which distorted
the news of the convention, and
this morning called Wilson's" can
didacy dead. ,
It was the nding of the most
bitter, and one of the longest
deadlocks that ever tied up an
American national convention.
When the convention was call
ed to order one week ago today,
Boss Murphy came out with this:
"New York will never, never,
'never vote for Woodrow Wil
son. It was known why Murphy did
this. The Ryans and the -Bel-monts
had given out they would
not contribute to Wilson's cam
paign fund.
