James S Sherman, of New York,

Nothing that transpired during the
light for delegates cr during the excit
ing days of the convention more plainly
showed the temper of the people in
this tltrht than the vote on the only
ballot taken. Everyone knows that
the band wagon Is a most alluring
vehicle In politics and that usually
there is a stampede to get a seat, but
in this instance with Col. Roosevelt
making the statement that he would
not accept the nomination unless the
roll of delegates was purged; with
Senator Cummins not being placed in
nomination and Senator LtFollette
openly repudiating the platform adopt

IRoosevelt was nominated for president
on an Independent tlckot. Twenty-two
states were represented at th(s meet

nomination, but suggested to his fol
lowers that tiiey go home, attempt to
iind the sentiment for a third party
and again meet at Chicago About
August 1. Upon the condition that
they would do this and when they re
turned would feel freeto select another
standard bearer if they so desired he
would accept the nomination.
The name of the new party, if
formed, will be tho Progressive Paity.
The action of tho National Con m lb
tee in the seating of Taft delegates in
all contests was carried out by the
Credential Committee and In the light
on the floor of the convention. The
only time that the Taft line wavered
was in the light over the two dele
gates from California seated for Taft
in the face of that state going for
Roosevelt by 77,000 in the primary.
The Taft people ctanaged to hold
enough of their delegates however to
win even on this question by 2 majori
ty. Gov. Johnson, of California, made,
what was generally conceded to lie the
greatest speech of tho convention,
against this action.
A lull has followed the storm of tho
past few weeks and members of the
party are trying to got their bearings
and iind out "where they are at."

For Temporary Chairman of
By Judge Parker
Fight is Between Bryan and Wall
Street and Wall Street Back
ed By Bosses Wins
the First Battle.
In tho first test of strength at tho
Democratic c nventlon at Baltimore
Tuesday. Col. Bryan was defeated.
The fight arose over the selection of a.
temporary chairman. The National
Committee had selected Judge Alton
B. Parker, of New York, to deliver
the keynote speech of the convention.
Col. Bryan opposed his selection on
the ground that he was a reactionary,
a representative of Wall street and
was himself a candidate against him.
Judge Parker was selected chairman
the vote being Parker 579 ; Bryan 510.
Col. Bryan made an impassioned
speech against the selection of Judge
Parker and stated after tho election
of Parker that nothing will be done
at the convention that has not the O.
K. of Charles F. Murphy, the New
York Tammany Boss.
Cone Johnson of Texas, In a speech
against Parker designated the line up
as follows: "All I know " he said, "Is
that the tlyht Is on ; that Bryan Is on
one side and Wall street on the
Gov. Wilson lined up his forces
solidly behind Col. Bryan. Gov. Har
mon and Mr. Underwood were with
Judge Parker, while Speaker Clark:
played politics, dividing his forces
between the two.
Judge Parker was the Democratic
nominee In 1004 and was the worst
defeated candidate that party ever
had. At the convention which nomin
ated Judge Parker, Col. Bryan and his
following were trainpeled upon and it
looks as though the Democratic bosses
under tho direction of their owner,
big business, will again try to elimin
ate Col. Bryan and destroy his Influ
ence In the party.
A more sharply defined line up could
not possibly have been made than on
the tight between Parker anil Bryan.
Judge Parker Is a Ne York corpora
tion lawyer, ne Is the extreme typo
of reactionary In the Democratic
party. Col. Bryan on tne other hand
has been the acknowledged leader of
the progressive wing of that party for
years, the Idol of the progressives.
The defeat of Col. Bryan shows that
"big business" was not asleep while
the work of selecting delegates was,
While it would seem that the two
thirds rule may prevent the nomina
tion oi a reactionary like Gov. Har
mon or Mr. Underwood It Is certain
that a real progressive like Bryan or
Wilson can not win. Probably a man
like Speaker Clark, a pretended pro
gressive, but a man satisfactory to
the reactionaries will be the candi
date of the party. A large part of
his delegates were the most ardent
supporters of Judge Parker and this
shows more plainly than anv pro
fessions of his, what he really is. The
bosses and "big business" seldom get
behind a man that they can not de
pend upon. Clark with the Murphy
O. K. on him will be a peculiar look
It does not look as If the people
could hope for much from Baltimore.
