Democratic Hosts Gathering in Baltimore Parker's Victory Portends Split With Bryan
The convention which opens at Balti
more next Tuesday will be the twenty
first national assemblage of the Demo
cratic party, while the one now in ses
sion In Chicago Is only the fifteenth Re
publican national gathering. But the
Democratic party surpasses the Repub
lican In age much more than this dif
ference would Indicate.
L Born in the bank controversy of 1791,
christened by Jefferson, its founder. In
1792. and strengthened In the division
among tjje people which Washington's
neutrality proclamation at the begin
ning of the Anglo-French war in 1793
caused, the Democratic party passed its
centennial mark more than a decade
But the history of the party's con
ventions dates back only to 1S32, In
which year the national delegate con
vention method of nominating candi
dates for President and Vice President
Was adopted The first Democratic na
tional convention was held on May 12,
1832, at Baltimore, and adopted two
rules which have guided the actions of
all subsequent conventions. One of
these provided that the delegates, when
so instructed, should cast the votes of
their States as a unit, and the other
that no candidate should be nominated
without a two-thirds majority. Andrew
Jackson was nominated for President,
and Martin Van Buren for Vice Presi
dent. They were elected.
The second Democratic national con
vention met on May 25, 183S, also at
Baltimore, and nominated Martin Van
Buren for President and Richard M.
Johnson for Vice President. The ticket
was successful In the subsequent elec
tion. Van Buren Named.
The third convention, held on May 5,
1S40. at Baltimore, renominated Van
Buren, but named no candidate for Vice
President, leaving that to the several
rHates. It also put forward the first
complete platform ever adopted by the
party. Parts of this platform were In
corporated Into the deliverance of every
Democratic national convention prior to
the civil war, and its leading Ideas have
reappeared In many of the party plat
forms of the last fifty years.
In 1S44 the Democratic national con
vention again assembled in Baltimore.
Van Buren had a majority of the in-
. structed delegates for his nomination.
James K. Polk was a candidate for
Vice President. Unfortunately for Van
furen, he was not on the "popular side
in regard to the burning question of the
annexation of Texas. Again the two
thirds rule was Introduced, and assifc-ed
Van Buren's defeat. After a three days'
struggle the nomination was given to
In the convention of isis, also In Bal
timore, took place the first of the great
, walkouts" in Democratic national as-f-emblages,
the otherH being in I860 and
1S96. The party In New York was dtvloV
ed Into two hostile factions. The na.
tlonal convention attempted to patch up
a trucp between them by admitting the
delegations which each chose, allowing
, each to cast half the votes. The result
was that the faction whose choice was
oereated indignantly withdrew from the

ocratic national convention held In
Baltimore In 1862. William P. King, of
Alabama, was nominated for Vice Pres

The convention which m.t nt Cincin

and resulted in tlin nomination nf James
michanan. of fcr.nsvivnntn fnr- I'resi-'

Iho most fateful convention which
was ever held in tho United BtateR was,
that which opened at Charlotte, 8. C, i
on April 23, I860, which lasted ten days
and took flfty-Bovcn unavailing ballots,
and which split the party Into a North-

One faction named Stephen A, Douglas,
of Illinois, and Herschel V. Johnson, of
Georgia, while the other nominated
John C. Breckinridge, of Kentucky, and
P,ep1 La"c. of Oregon. Both were de
feated at. the polls by Abraham Lincoln
ftnd Hannibal Hamlin, Republicans.
The main purpose for holding the
Democratic national convention which
met in Chicago on August 30, 1S64, was
to prevent the party organization from
going wholly to pieces. The convention
adopted a platform which declared the
war a failure and nominated Oeri
Oeorge B. McClellan, of Now Jersey,
for President, and George H. Pendle
ton, of Ohio, for Vice President. Only
three states ratified the convention's

In the convention of 18G8 the only one
ever held In New York, Horatio Sey
mour, of New York, was named for
President, and F. P. Blair, of Missouri,
for Vice President. This ticket was
easily beaten by the Republican ticket
of Grant and Colfax.
The 1872 convention of the Democrats
was held at Baltimore. It accepted
Horace Greeley, the nominee of the se
ceding element of the Republican party,
and named B. Gratz Brown, of Mis
souri, for Vice President, but the reg
ular Republicans In that year repeated
their victory of 1S6S.
In their convention of 1876. in St.
T.ouis, the Democrats nominated their
strongest and ablest man, Samuel J.

BALTIMORE, June 21. Where Is tho
busiest place In the city?
That would be an easy question to an
swer if one should happen to stroll Into
cither Camden, Mt. Royal, or Union
station at any time during the day and
night. On every hand there Is bustle
and excltemont, and the large crowds

The rush nt the stations ha.s begun in
earnest, nnd the employes of the Balti
more nnd Ohio and tho Pennsylvania
railroad find themselves confronted
with one of the biggest tasks they havo
ever attempted. Extra gatcmen, por
ters, and baggagemen are on tho Job at
all stations. No employe of the railroad
has a harder task than the gatemen, for
to them nearly every traveler comes and
asks for Information. The men are all
very polite and try and give answers to
every question asked them.
Tho baggagemen also have their
hands full. It Is estimated that more
baggage came through the hands of the
men there yesterday than at any time
Mnre the railroad has been In existence.
Small satchels, suit cases, trunkB, and
even dogs anod cats must be handled.
The visitors arrive on a train, and ten
minutes later they are at the baggage
room asking for their luggage.
The baggagemen must get the check
for the required piece from nearly 5,000
suit cases and satchels to find the one
corresponding with tne check he has In

the visitors become very Impatient at
tho delay. Others Just leave orders for
the suit case or whatever it might be to
be sent to their hotas. This Is tho best
Plan, for it not only helps the baggage
man, but keeps the traveler from wor
rying and delay.
The real rush will begin this morn
ing, when special trains carrying
from 600 to 1,000 delegates and vis
itors will' arrive. There will be no
rest for the station employes then,
for the visitors will continue to pour
In until next Tuesday. Tho facilities
at all stations arc modern and up to

experienced In handling the crowds.
