WHEN TENTH BALLOT II
' SHATTERS DEADLOCK
Managers of "Big Three" Candidates Unable to Stop Drift
After It Begins; Collapse of Lowden Forces Puts
Harding Over; Coolidge Is His HH
i Running Mate
' CHICAGO, June 12. Warren G. Harding. United States senator from M
Ohio, was nominated for the presidency today b the' Republican national 3 W
convention after, a deadlock which lasted for nine ballots and which finally j
forced out 6t tho running all the original favorites. 8
As his running mate, the convention named Governor Calvin Coolidge
of Massachusetts, upsetting a plan of a combination of the Harding backers
to nominate for tho place Senator Irvine L. Lenvoot of Wisconsin. j ,mW
The collapse of the forces of Governor Frank 0. Lowden and their trans- iH
fer in large part to Senator Harding put the Ohio candidate over.
General Wood lost heavily, however, when the Harding drift began,
and Senator Johnson, the third of the 'trio of leaders n the early balloting
yesterday, also went steadily down hill. 'H
HARDING COMES FROM BEHIND. H
Entering the convention four days ago as a candidate distinctly of the
"dark horse" class, Senator Harding got only 61 votes on the first ballot
yesterdav and on the second he dropped to aS. When the convention ad
j'ourned last night at the end of the fourth ballot lie had Gl.
In .all-night conferences among the party chiefs, however, he was men- MM
tloned raanv Lines as the most likely to break the nomination deadlock jm
should neither Wood, Lowden nor Ju-hnson tako a commanding lead today.

for 'leadership on four ballots while the strength of the California candidalo jH
OHIO SENATOR CLIMBS STEADILY. iWW
! Meantime Harding pushed his total to 133, individual delegates from Mm

i raWrite sons. The Johnson managers, fearing a landslide was impending, mM
I then ms-de a last plav to save the fortunes of their candidate. They raoel mm
I to recess for a couple of hours in order to take an inventory and seek a MM
(new combination. The Wood and Lowden forces, both virtually at the peak mm
!of their" strength, hut disheartened a'f the long string of ballots without ma- mm
! terial gains, fell in. with the recess plan-and the convention-adopted it- rWm
j FATE. OF CANDIDATES SEALED. H
' In the dramatic succession of conferences that followed, the fate of
the candidates virtually was sealed. Some of the Wood and Lowden mana- ,
' gers tried ineffectually for agreement which would hold their delegates
lin line and kill off the Harding boom. Some tried to get a V.ood-Lowden-
I Johnson agreement to adjourn until Monday without making a nomination.
! There also was a eonferonce between Johnson and Harding supporters in
which the Ohioau's supporters tried without success to have the remaining
Johnson strength swung to Harding, I
PARLEYS BEGIN TO BEAR FRUIT. - l
It was the parlevs between the Harding and Lowden men, however.
which apparently bore the most fruit when tho balloting began again, for
Governor Lowden came to the convention during tho ninth roll call and, M
reversing a previous plan to go before the convention itself, issued instruc- m
lions from behind the scenes releasing his instructed delegates. Senator
Harding also was in the rear of the coliseum platform during the voting and
conferred with Chairman Hays. i H
STATES FLOP FOR HARDING.
Vlmost as soon as the alphabetical call of states began after the recess
the ground Bwell for Harding demonstrated that it could not be forestalled. m
Connecticut, when, her name was called, took thirteen of her fourteen votes , m
from Lowden and gave them to Harding. In Florida he got seven from MM
Wood, and then Kentucky, almost from the first a solid Lowden state, flopped m
completely into the Harding column.
Amid scenes of rising enthusiasm other blocks of Lowden delegates fol- mw
lowed suit while manv of the routed Wood supporters also went into the
Harding camp. Bv the end of the roll call Senator Harding had rolled up a
total of 374, putting him far into the lead and several score of votes nearer
the nomination than any candidate had been berore.
STRENGTH OF THE "BIG THREE" WANES OUT. '
Lowden at tho end of tho ninth had only 121 votes left out of the 307
with which he ended tho eighth and General Wood's strength had fallen
from l99 on the eighth to 219 on the ninth. Johnson dropped from 87 to b2. m
As the tenth roll call began delegates quit Lowden, Avood and Johnson JH
right and left, and the big hall was in' almost continuous applause as state mm
alter state annouuueu uwcasiwu -u wo ""'u'"o - tr mmt
for Pennsylvania to add tho crowning touch of enthusiasm. When tho Key- mm
stone state was reached the Ohio senator needed 32 votes to nominate him, mm
and Pennsylvania gavo him CO.
SPROUL AUTHOR OF CLIMAX.
it was Governor Sproul. himself, the candidate of his state on every
preceding ballot and mentioned many times as a possible "dark horse" to MM
break the deadlock, who announced tho big Pennsylvania voto for Harding. Mt
Entering tho coliseum for the first time since the balloting began, he made H
his way to the Pennsvlvania standard and, amid cheers, released the dele- MM
gates from longer supporting him. Then he took a poll, got the floor and H
threw in the winning Harding voies.
A demonstrntoln of several minutes followed, most of the delegates mt
and spectators standing and cheering while a procession carrying large pic- f JH
tures of tho candidate and standards of some of the states that supported , mt
him took up Its march around the hall. But it Vas too tired a convention m
after the gruelling excitement of two sweltering days of balloting to long H
keep up such a demonstration. Senator Lodge, presiding, rapped for order, H
and the delegates did not argue with him. H
When it was seen that a candidate had been nominated, the customary mt
chauging of votes began with a half dozen who had voted for other caudi- , MM
dates switching over so as to appear in the winning column on the last MM
ballot. Most of Illinois deserted its governor and many of tho Wrood men. H
too, asked to have their votes recorded for Harding. UM
FORMER LEADERS DROP FAR.
The final check up showed 692 for Harding, with only 12 left supporting H
Lowden 157 for Wood and SO for Johnson. At their best, earlier in the day, MM
the Wood people, had mustered 312 votes and tho Lowden forces 311. John- H
son's high point was 148, on the third ballot yesterday. Mm
A motion to make the nomination unanimous, was passed In a great
chorus of approval, but when opportunity was given for negative votes there MM
wero some "noes" from Wisconsin whose delegation throughout the day had H
voted amid hisses and catcalls almost solidly for Senator Robert M. LaFol- M
, COOLIDGE CAUSES ENTHUSIASM. 'MM
The plan to nominee Senator Leuroot for the vice presidency had ths H
backing of many of tho mon who hHd helped put Harding over, but the mm
name of Governor Coolldso stirred the delegates and galleries to repeated H
cheering and lie was swept into second place on the ticket before the first mU
roll call had gone two-thirds of its length. Again it was Pennsylvania which H
furnished the winning votes.
Governor Coolidge got G74 votes to 14C for Senator Leuroot and GS for H
Governor Allen of Kansas. Several others got scattering support without H
boing placed formally in nomination. The result was greeted with another IH
demonstration and there was renewed cheering a few minutes later when MM
the tired delegates were told that their work was done. It was early evening MM
by the time adjournment was reached but before midnight hundreds had
checked out and were on their way. 4 XT , , it H
There was no official total of the final ballot. Near thocloso of the MM
ballot there was a wholesale switching of votes to' the Hardinrcamp and H
men a motion to make it unanimous. This motion tailed bccftirtfe of tin H
opposition of the Wisconsin delegation- f J-M
