man of the hour, mounted the platform
to second the president's nomination.
"Teddy" Did Not Flinch.
"When tho convention caught sight
of him It went off again like a rocket.
As he stood there facing the yelling
multitude tho roar could have been
heard for blocks. Ilanna smiled bland
ly as a daring photographer set up a
rapid fire camera directly In front of
the hero of San Juan and began bang
ing away at him. Hut "Teddy" did
r.ot Ulncli. lie looked about him while
he waited for the storm to subside.
Several times he raised his hand, but
tho cheering continued. Ills stern,
square Jaw was flimlv set as he sur
veyed the scene. Only once did his
face relax. That was when he caught
sight of his wife, who sat In the re
served seats over-hanging the pit, on
his right. Then he smiled till his teeth
showed and Mrs. Roosevelt fluttered
back her handkerchief. "When finally
he was allowed to begin he plunged
directly to to the heart of his subject
In the Impetuous way which tho people
60 much admire. His first statement
was that he rose to second the nomi
nation of William McKlnley, who faced
more problems that any president since
Lincoln. The convention got on Its feet
and It was several minutes before lie
could proceed. Every movement and
eveiy word was characteristic of the
man. He looked, spoke and acted like
one giving direction to an army about
to go Into battle. And nothing would
content him but to storm the heights
as he did at Santiago. Ttoosevelt Is no
master of the foot. He prefers the
broad sword, and as he laid about nlm
w 1th sledge hammer blows the multi
tude went wild with delight. A Ne
braska delegate shouted:
"Hit Yin again "
He had the manuscript of his speech
In his hand and leferred to It occa
sionally, dlscatdlng page after pagt.
as hi" finished, until the platfoi m at
his feet wis stievvn with white sheets.
When he reached his petoiatlon, and
with a woi Id of inllnttc feeling In his
xolcc, asked If Ameilca was n weak
ling to sin Ink from tho woild woik
of the woild powers, the whole pit
echoed "Kn" In choius. When he con
cluded and resumed his seat In tho
New York delegation the other dele
gates lushed forward and surrounded
lilm. .Many cmbrnced him, and It
.seemed for a moment as If they would
lift him to their shoulders. Senator
Thurston, the Demosthenes of the sn
alf, John W. Yerke.s, an orator from
the Illuo Glass state, and Governor
Mount, of Indiana, also seconded Mi1
Klnley's nomination, but before the
latter concluded the convention was
Impatient for a vote and several times
the crowd tried to box, 1 him down
The roll of states was railed, an I
delegation nftir delegation rose In
solid blocks and cast their votes for
McKlnley.
When Chairman Lodge made the an
nouncement that the piesldent had
been renominated for the term begin
ning Maich 1, 1901, there was the same
wild storm which haa been lalsed bv
Forakcr, and when It was over, Roose
velt's nomination for the vice-presidency
eoked a succession of similar
demonstrations. I,afe Young, of Ohio,
who was with Roosevelt In Cuba,
nominated him on behalf of the stata
which had oilglnally come to Philadel
phia for Dolllver. His nomination was
seconded by Delegate Murray, of Sec
retary Long's state, and Delegate
Ashton, of Washington, who came here
for Uaitlett Tripp. Clmuncey Depew
wound up the oratoiy on behalf of the
withdrawal of Woodruff. Depew's
speech aioused the most Intense en
thusiasm when he pictured the day's
dream of the country's future.
During every pause the b.uid plajed
but one air, the tune which Colonel
Roosevelt had heaid In the ti ouches
befoie Santiago.
At 2.H the convention, which done
the unpaialleled thing of nominating
both candidates for president anil vice
piesldent unanimously, adjourned.
Governor Roosevelt drove from the
convention with Mr. Odell, seated In
the rear of an open landeau. He lifted
his bioad-brlm hat to the continuous
salutes that greeted him as he passed
thiough the densely packed streets,
like a conquering heio fresh from new
victories. TonlKht the faces of Mc
Klnley and Roosevelt aie on all the
badges and their names aie on every
lip.

VERY QUEER TO WU TING.
Chinese Minister Sat in Convention
and Wondered Why Did So Many
TalkP Why No Chinese-American
Delegates? And Then the Women.
Philadelphia, June 21. Wu Ting
rang, Hie Chinese minister at Wash
ington, who Is visiting this city, said
yesterday fo tho New York World:
"I am disappointed that the conven
tion did not nominate the president to
day. I could only allow myself one
day to witness the National conven
tion, and I chose this, believing that
the delegates would nominate Mr. Mc
Klnley. It was a great experience, a
scene neer to be forgotten.
' Tnero weie great statesmen and
great orators, who made great
speeches. Rut e'verybody was talking,
only sonn louder than others. Why
do they not make a rule that every
body should keep their mouths shut
except those who aru commissioned to
do the talking?
"This Is the firft convention I have
ever attended, and I enjoyed It im
mensely. It amused me gi catly to Bee
those rfient statesmen cheeilng like
so ji'inv fch'iolboys the sumo as at
one of yoar foot ball games. It Im
pressed m with the American enthu
siasm. The public sees the w lldest
demonstrations of popularity.
'TIic men, joung and old, yelling,
(hee.lng, waving the national Hags
and tosmig th"lr hats high In the "liliT
weie .ill new to me. Inthuslism wns
contagion-, rnd sevetal times I found
myself i.lmost In the act of shouting
with th1 lest without knowing why.
"When the Honorable Mr. Quay en
tered 'he hall and the ,Ticnt mass of
humanity lose and greeted him with
the wlld'st applause, when ever tho
ladles waved their handkerchiefs, and
1 heaid one crv out "ilunah'" then I
caught the spit It of the moment and
clapped my hands, figuratively, with
the wliol Ametlcin people.
"Again, when senator Depew. that
most cllsclngulshed and inimitable of
men, p-iss-d Ihiouuh the hall the ciowd
bin. st rorlh into another lound ot ap
plause It must make a man feel very
pi one! to see the lepresentatlves of
the eutlie United States llse as one
mint to pay him homage.
' Ope tlilnt-' I notice, thine are never
Chinese-. inei leans among your lepie
sent.itlves or delegates. I do not sup
pose tlier" ever will be unless San
Kiane-'fio should at some far futuio
date send one.
"I noticed Fovcml women delegates.
This Intei ested mo very much, and I
vi as notiy that none of them made ad
di esses. I should like to hear a wo
man polltl 'Ian make a political speech,
or, what Is It you say,' 'to stump.'
She might be able to 'stump many of
the men
"It seems that theie are few, If any,
things that r.n Ameilcan woman can
not do I noticed many negroes nmong
the delegites. A distinctive class they
wein-d to reprcsnt. i'he one from
Georgia v.ho Interrupted the speaker
on ow occasion, has, I believe, as pow
erful and musical u voice as I ever
heniel. And what he fold seemed to
be ut tried with lemarkable effect."

WHY ROOSEVELT
WAS NOMINATED
(Concluded from Talc 1.)
vrlt, Mink Hanna Included, who It nil
been cnstlng about for c. ntnn In whosu
person could bo centeieil the elementn
In the convention tint might be anti
Roosevelt, renewed their efforts. It
was an unavailing hunt. Senator Wil
liam II. Allison, of Iowa, Hon. Corne
lius N. Jillss, of New York, formerly
secretary of the interior, and Postmas
ter General Smith were out of the
race oven before Roosevelt appeared
really dangerous.
Timothy Woodruff, of New York,
was more distasteful to Hanna
than Roosevelt. Ssnatoi Pah banks,
of Indiana, would have made a splen
did candidate, and had many things
to recommenJ hint favorably, but ho
did not look with much favor on the
Idea, and the Indiana delegation did
not hesitate to say they wanted to
hold back Senator Fairbanks until 1904,
when, as they phrased It, 'he will win
the presidential nomination In a walk"
"We don't want to wastp him on tho
vice presidency," they continued.
Secretary of the Navj Long was the
man who, after Bliss, Hanna would
like to nee the convention name as
McKlnley's running mate, but the del
egates said nay.
"We want a man with more mag
netlsm," they said. "A man the peo.
pic can enthuse over," and that's the
reason they tinned their eyes longingly
toward Roosevelt, the Idol of thousands
of Republicans of the country.
The only man mentioned for the vlcc
presldency who could dispute with
Roosevelt the position of being a popu
lar Idol In his party was Congressman
J. P. Dolllver, of Iowa. Had Roosevelt
been wiped out of the contest, Dolllver
was the natuial legatee of the Roose
velt sentiment and would have been
nominated, but there were reasons why
Roosevelt should prevail, and he did,
even against his wishes.
Wednesday night It was evident that
nothing could stop the movement tow
ard New York's governor and other
candMates dropped out of the race.
At H.r.'J p. m. Mark Hanna read a
statement to the newspaper men at thi
Walton to tho effect that McKlnley
and Roosevelt would be nominated by
acclamation. He proved a true pro
phet. QUAY'S PART IN IT.
The part that Former Senator Quay
played In the nomination of Roosevei
was one of the Interesting features of
the convention. Sunday he declared In
favor of the Rough Rider and In the
days of uncertainty that succeeded
when Governor Roosevelt was fighting
the most unique battle In tne history
of American politics, the quiet little
Reaver statesman would Bmlle an easy
smile when Interrogated and quietly re
ply, "Roosevelt will be nominated." If
he ever wavered In his belief that such
would be the outcome of the conven
tion, he gave no Intimation of It. He
seemed to be always serenely confident
the convention would endorse the man
he believed the best running mate for
McKlnley that could be selected.
During the days Roosevelt was fight
ing against fate he was unjustly
charged with Indecision and vacilla
tion, lie was consistent throughout.
He did not want the nomination and ho
plainly and bluntly said so. Rut It
was quite another thing to refuse to
accept the call of the Republicans of
the countiy to nccept such a high
nomination as that of vice president.
"If I absolutely refuse to accept."
he sdld to a friend, "the people will
say that Roosevelt thinks he Is too
good for the vice piesldency. I don't
think nn thing of the kind. It Is an
office . orthy of the gieatest man lit
this great country, but for myself, I
believe I can be of gi eater service to
my pirty In New Yoik this fall as a
candid tte for governor than ns a vice
ptesidnntlal candidate. Many mem
bers of the convention seem to look at
the natter in a dlffeient light, how
ever." A Hard Struggle.
It was a hard stiuggle for Roosevelt
His ambition naturally leads him to
look to the piesldency us a reward
the future may have In store for him,
and It was only natural that ho should
consult r 'he effoit 'o make him vice
preslde'nt as a snclv Ing process, to say
nothing of lemovlng him fiom a Held
of action where he believes hr has uu-llnlshi-I
tasks that demand his at
tention. Small wonlcr he tiled to hold
back the torient until he saw it was
unavailing.
It will be Interesting to watch the
futuie career of Governor Roosevelt.
Can he do what no piecedlng vice pies
ldent since the United States became
a fac t has been able to r.ceompllsh? Is
the question thai Is on thousands of
tongueti heie tonight.
Roosevelt Is a marvelc us man who
w HI t ever allow himself to be trnm
meled 'iy precedents. It Is among the
possllillltlas that he will pass from
the vice president'? to the president's
chair, but the load may be more diffi
cult than if he went bv way of the
New York executive chamber.
