S. Straus, former Secretary of Com?
merce and Labor In the Cabinet of
President Roosevelt, was unanimously
elected the nominee for Governor ot
tto- Progressive party by a stampeded
? onveiitloh this afternoon
Mr Sirius's nomination came about
under circumstances that were not
only unexpected, but dramatic. The
former Cabinet member, acting as the
convention's permanent chairman, was
ahout to entertain a motion from for?
mer tiieutenant-Goyernor Timothy I*
Woodruff to expedite the roll e.ali on
names of State Chairman William
It Hotchklss and Comptroller Wil?
liam A. Prendergast, of New York,
when a delegates from New York
County leaped to his chair and de?
manded to be heard.
"It's ?suspender .lack' McGee," criel
a voice from the gallery.
Chairman Straus looked puzzled.
McGee, who got his name in the In?
dian country by riding a broncho into
? amp with suspenders used as reins,
moved resolutely toward the plat?
Chairman Straus looked with sur?
prise on the man who. with a flaming
bandana swathed around his neck and
his coat blazing with badges, tossed
ills rough-rider hat on the floor and
deman'X'd the right to make a nomi?
I'??legates and spectators booed and
J< ered as he began to speak. But
"Suspender .lack" only waved his arm
in defiance of the Jeers. He paused a
moment, and then cried: "I nominate
! the Illustrious and honorable Oscar S'.
i Straus "
The delegates seemed stunned. Then
I a few of them cheered. Mr. Straus
gave an amused laugh at "Suspend.>r
.lack." bowtng before him. McGee kept
; on with his speech, und the first few
faint cheers from the half a dozen nr
, more delegates gradually grew into a
pandemonium that swept the conven
i tlon ball from end to end. Standards
were wrenched from their supports,
and delegates, yelling and 'cheering
for Chairman Straus, paraded tho
aisles, turning tho convention Into a
Chairman Straus at first shook his
e ad doprecatlngly at the growing
ovation. He turned to friends and re?
marked: "This must not be; i cannot
Chairman Hotchklss left his scat and
urged Straus to accept.
Scores of delegates pressed toward
the platform to urgv Mr. Straus to
make the decision. Then Mr. Hotch?
klss burst from the group that sur?
rounded Mr. Straus and held Up lie
fort the crush of excited delegates ;v
sheet of yellow paper on which was
! written: "Ho accepts."
Cjulckly the word was passed back
J through the hal! and another demon
stratloh followed. AH other nominu
I tions were withdrawn. Then came a
. Hood of seconding speeches for the
former secretary and minister to
Turkey. ??Suspender Jack" McGee was
nut lost sight of. Delegates pressed
about him and proclaimed him "the
ninn of the hour." Later the conven?
tion passed a vote of thanks to Dele?
gate McGee of the fifteenth assembly
district for nominating Mr. Straus.
Whon the convention had recovered
and Mr. Straus had been chosen unani?
mously he was called on for a speech
and tendered an ovation as he formally
accepted the nomination.
