In Nebraska Clark gained a vote.
When New York was called a poll
of tho delegation, the first since the

Abraham I. Elkins of the Eleventh
New York district was the first New

of cheers greeted him. William J.
McAdoo was the second.
Stanchfleld Roasts Bryan.
When the name of John B. Stanch
field was reached, he took the plat
form to explain his vote.
"I come from a state whose elec
toral vote Is vital to Democratic suc
cess," began Stanchfleld. "We rep
resent 10,000,000 people."
Stanchfield then started to review
the hjslory of New York UplitlsThe
delegates showed" signs orBecoming '
Is there any limit on the gentle
man s time?" demanded a Michigan
"New York has a right to be heard
on the floor of this convention," re
turned Stanchfield. "The intcgrit of
every delegate from New York 'has
been impugned and insulted."
Stanchfield said the New York del
egation included Jurists, lawyers and
business men of known standing..
"It is by tho common censent the
most representative delegation that
ever came to a national convention
from New York. If these be thc pup
pets of wax' that Mr. Bryan reters to,
tte say to that money-grabbing, office
seeking, publicity-hunting marplot of
Stanchfield could not conclude the
sentence. It was drowned in a burst
While the speaker delivered this at
tack, Bryan watched Stanchfield close
ly and smiled.
"I desire to sny again the vote of
New York is vital to success." con
tinued Stanchfield. "And no man can
go from this convention stigmatized
and branded with the mark of Bryan -ism
upon him, and come within half
a million yotes of success.
Calls Bryan a Plutocrat.
"When Mr. Bryan makes the state
ment that these New York delegates
are under the influence of Morgan
and Ryan and Belmont, the 'plutocrats'
of this convention, ho omits one name.
Outside of the three he has named,
the richest and most powerful pluto
crat on the floor Is the gentleman
from Nebraska himself.
"If the Now York delegation is to
be prevented from participating, then
any man who for pay has been writ
ing from the floor of the Republican
convention in favor of Mr. Bryan's
partner nnl ally, Theodore Roosevelt,
ought also to be excluded.
"Colonel Bryan has never intended
to support the candidate of this con
vention unless that candidate was
Mr. Bryan himself," said Stanchfield.
"We have heard for months that Mr.
Bryan has been combatting Under
wood here and Wilson there, Clark
here and Harmon there, working all
the time in his own selfish interest, to
produce a deadlock in Baltimore."
In conclusion, Stanchfield throw
the convention into disorder with tho
Votes for Wilson.
"1 cast my vote for Woodrow Wil
son of Jcw Jersey."
As the poll proceeded. It became
appaient uiat ciark would again get
New Yorks 90 votes under the unit
rule. It waB generally believed that
the vote had been challenged and the
poll demanded for the sole purpose of
enabling nchfleld to doliver his
attack on Bryan.
Of tho four delegates at largo, John
A. Dix, Alton B. Parker and Charles
F. Murphy voted for Clark. Senator
O'Gonnan voted for Wilson. The dis
trict delegates who voted for Wilson

Great Falls voted for Underwood.
Under the unit rule, New York's y0
went to Clark.
Illinois, which had been pas-sed in
the roll call, cast 5S otes for Clark
The Illinois delegates filed into then
scats while the poll of the New York
delegation was In progress Their cau
cus resulted in a determination to
stand by Clark, for whom the 5S
votes had been cast since the begin
ning of the balloting.
The result of the twenty-seventh
Ciark 4C9, Wilsou 43GM:, Underwood

This gave Clark a gain of 56, Wil

duced a resolution deploring the bit
terness of the convention and callins
for a united front in order to facili
tate the work of tho convention. It
was referred to the resolutions com
mittee without reading
Indiana for WIIgod.
The twenty-eighth roll call went as
far as Indiana before any material
shift was made. Then the convention
went wild as Senator Shively an
nounced: "Kern 1, Wilson 20."
When quiet was restored a poll was
demanded, but the demand was later
withdrnwn. The Indiana vote hud
heretofore gone solid for Marshall.
After conferring with a number of
friends, Mr. Bryan said it was un
likely that he would reply to the
speech of Mr. Stanchfield It was
reported that Senator Rayner of
Maryland might seek opportunity to
defend the "progressives."
The New Mexico delegation de
manded a poll after the vote had been
reported "eight for Clark." The roll
call ahowed Clark 5. Wilson 3, and,
under the unit rule, the eight went to
Oklahomn'u delegation was polled,
but the vote remained Clark 10, Wil

Marshall was eliminated, 29 of his
30 votes in Indiana going to Wilson,
who srained 31 on the ballot.
Clark lost 1.
At the closo of thc twenty-eighth
ballot it was announced that arrange
ments had been made to extend all
railroad tickets, making them good
until July 10.
"1912 or 1913?" demanded a dele
gate, but there was no reply.
Tho twenty-ninth ballot was ordered
Indiana on the twenty-ninth vote
gave Kern -1, Wilson 26. Thus Wil
son lost three.

The delegation was ordered polled
A chorus of yells and jeers greeted
the beginning of the poll an J the joll
of thc delegation proceeded Jn great
The vote was Wilson 13, Clark 1,
absent 1, and the vote of Kansas, 20
in all, went over into the Wilson col
umn. When James ruled that the vote
should go to Wilson, Theodore A.
Bell took the floor after a disorderly
dispute to argue against casting thc
vote of Kansas for Wilson.
Thc delegates wore impatient and
Bell was frequently Interrupted. He
argued that the Kansas delegation
could not shift to Wilson until two
thirds of tho delegation voted for Wil
son, lie asserted that 13 was not
two -thirds and contended that 20
votes should go to Clark.
Bell had trouble getting a hearing
and his argument was punctuated by
"Sing it," shouted a delegate as he
neared the conclusion.
A. Mitchell Palmer of Pennsylvania,
the Wilson leader, answered Bell. He
said that with only ninetween Kan
sas delegates on tho floor, thirteen
constituted two-thirds of the delega
tion and their votes should control tho
Ben Gaitzel of the Wilson men in
the Kansas delogation, asserted that
fourteen of the delegates from that
state had voted yesterday to desert
Chairman James ruled that "two
thirds of the delegations" meant "two
thirds of the delegates present, and
gave the twonty votes to Wilson.
The result of the twenty-ninth bal
lot showed changes in the vote of only
three states. It was:
Clark 4C8VA, Wilson 43GVJt Under
wood 112, Foss 38, Harmon 29, Kern 4.
This gave Clark a loss of a half
vote, Wilson a loss of 1; Bryan
lost his single vote and Kern gained 3,
The thirtieth ballot proceeded mo
notonously until Ohio was reached.
Then ten of Harmon's 29 went to Un
derwood. Wilson's 19 remained In
tact. Vermont gave up Foss on this bal
lot and her eight votes wont to Wil
son. Tho result of thc vote put Wil
son In the lead.

IN THE SAME RUT
New York, July 1. Tho first step
toward the organization In New York
stato of the new party launched In
Chicago by supporters of Theodore
Roosevelt was taken by City Comp
troller Prondergast. Mr. Prendorgast
laid the cause before the people yes
terday in an address to voters. Jfro
vislonul organization, he says, will bp
effected without delay and permanent
organization will follow as quickly as
possible. Mr Preudergast said:
"I submit this appeal to men of all
parties and men who have had jio
previous political affllialtons. In the
name of great numbers who have ex
pressed their approval of n new polit
ical party J ask Republicans and Dem
ocrats to enroll themselves in defense
of honesty in political work and the
advocacy of genuine principles of po
litical, social and industrial reform.
Says Party Necessary.
"This new pnrty will not be tho re
sult of any suddea judgment pussed
upon the high-handed acts of the Re
publican national committee and tho
discreditable work of tho Republican
national convention The acts of that
convention have rendered it necessary
that a new party shall he formed, but
the purpose the new movement will
serve is one towards which the hearts
of millions of men have been directe 1
in the last few years.
"A new party is a necessity because
so many have come to realize the
hopelessness of truly efficient and
upright government through the
agency of either of the old paries un
less they could be effectually divorced
from the sinister control of those who
believe that 'the power to take Is a
fitting rule of life.'
Gravity of Issue.
"There must be no mistaking the
gravity or immensity of this task, but
it will appeal to those who believe in
the moral glory of American democ
rac Let the men who have this faith
undertake the labor. That labor in
volves the contest of every place to
be voted for by the people at tho com
ing election, from president, congress
men, senatois and assemblymen to tho
lowest office upon the list. Thc prin
ciples we represent are as necessary
to the effective bettermen of stato
and local affairs as they are essen
tial to the perpetuation of the na
Will Begin at Once.
"A provisional organization for the
state of New York will bo effected
without delay, to be followed as quick
ly as possible by a permanent or
ganization. "Let every man who has in him the
spirit of the minutemen of Concord
and Lexington follow the example of
a distinguished citizen who has al
ready slgnifiod his intention off fight
ing for this cause, and n doing so
sad '1 want to enlist not for the
campaign, but for thc war.' "
