Kansas City, July (I. (Spl.) -It was
Just 8:50 o'clock Thursday night when
tho announcement whs made that Wil
liam .leanings Rrynn had been nomi
iifilcd for President of the United
States. The demonstration which fol
lowed has never been equalled In niiy
convention In the history of the United
States. Tiie crowds cheered, the bands
plnjod and tliere was ti general re
joiclng all over the hall. The nomi
nating speech was inado by Mryan's
friend, Willis D. Oldham, of Lincoln.
Ho' began his mhjris at tl:10 o'clock-.
He wns frequently Interrupted by ap
plause. When he had llnlshed there
was the wildest enthusiasm. Dele
gales paraded the Door carrying Hr.

thing they could lay llielr hands on.

Tin; reading of the resolution",' by
Senator Tillman, of South Carolina,
was the signal for tio llrst great dis
play of enthusiasm, This occurred
a short lime, utter the convention as
sembled Thursday afternoon. The
platform as reported was adopted.
(It will be round under a separate
head.) Webster Davis made a speech
in which he nnnoiiueed himself as n
supporter of Rrynn. It was a pro
Roer address. AHrr the nomination
of William J, IJryaii tho convention
adjourned until Friday morning at
Kansas City, Mo., .Inly 6. (Spl.)-4Iero are wine or tho
opinions of well known Democrats on Hryan'a selection and
Ororgp Kred WllllaniH, of MasMiclnmettB: "There is no
protesting Miiee against the platform and tho selection of
Rryan. There will be nosubordlnatlon of the silver question,
but It Is evident to everybody that the great xneuaco of tho
times Is the Impel lalistic policy of tlu; present Administra
tion. I think tho party will be. very much stronger every
where for Hip. action of the committee on roolutlons. All
who tely and of necessity must rely on Rryan for leadership
will admit Ids masterly and Insuperable qualities ns a leader,
and they arc fortuuatu to be able to put him In command on
the platform that was agreed to. The platform emphasizes
tho leadership of Riyan and preages victory In November."
V.x Governor John P. Altgeld: "I regard the platform as
the strongest ever adopted In the country. We have started
a tldul tio of auinlsm which will sweep from ocean to
ocean. With the tides of November, militarism, Imperialism,
MeKltileyiisin and Ilanunlsm will pass from America forever.
Rryan will be the next President."
.Senator Daniel, of Virginia: "The platform will be the
bond which will reunite the Democracy of the country. It
will prove satisfactory to Democrats of whatever opinion
regarding the llnancla I question. It Is ery strong and wllh
meet with approval everywhere."
Richard Croker, of New Yoik: "The platform is all right.
It Is splendid. I hare not studied it carefully, but I heard
every word of It as Senator Tillman read it. It suits me; It
Is big enough and broad enough for all Democrats and I be
lieve It will suit all Democrats.. It Is good enough for all to
stand upon. I could not. say more If I tried. As for our can
didate, Rryan, he Is goln; lo win. Wo will carry New York
Slate for him surely and I predict now that he will be elected
President of the United States-."
Carter Harrison, of Chicago: "I am perfectly atistled.
Making antl-imperlalHiu the paramount issue for the coming
campaign is eien better that what we wrrc lighting for in the
committee on resolutions. All that we asked was that the
convention should not specifically reaflirm the old money
plank of the Chicago platform because all feared it would be
made the dominant Issue In the campaign."
Conference took the lloor and announc
tliat the commltte.e was still In confer
ence, but, said he. there is no reason
whv we should not nominate Rryan.
Rrynn in point of fact, was nominated
by' us a year ago. Rryau's name was
presented by Teller at 10:55.

Mr. Chairman: More than a hundred
years ago the Continental Congress of
America adopted a declaration which
had been drafted by the founder of the
Democratic party, and the joyous tones
of the old liberty bell which greeted
the act announced to a waiting world
that a nation had been born.

you have respouded patriotically to

and In view of Hie radical departure
which the party In power has made
from the principles set forth In that
historic document, It is meet that we

lug our lines for the bloodless name
