Chicago, July 10 William Jennings Bry
fin of Nebraska, the )oung, claslc-fcat-ured
orator from the plains of tho Platte,
wept tho contention oft Its feet to-day
anl was nominated for president on the
II fill ballot.
J'olittcal lil tor) furnishes no precedent
for to-da)'s proceedings In tho Coliseum,
either as a great spectacular show, or as
thi result of tho deliberations of tho con
entlon of a great political party. Brjan
is but 34 j ears old, )ounger by ten jcart
than any man ever nominated for tho
chief magistrate of tho American republic.
He catno like a joun? Lochinvar out of
tho West, which has never before noml
nated'a providential candidate, to woo tho
bride for whose hand the country's great
est chieftains hate been suitors.
His name wns barely mentioned In the
preliminary skirmishing1. Four da) a ngo
when tht contention met he was not en
tered In the lists. Cut jesterday be ma do
an Impassioned speech and stirred the con
tention to frenzy by his eloquence. That
speech overthrew the diligently organized
vork of weeks and months for other as
pirants for tho honor.
The causo of silver wns uppermost In
the minds of the delegates when they as
sembled here. Tor the cause they dcllb
er.itily placed tho Eastern wing of Penn
s)ltanla on the altar. Now, when tho
convention Is coldly analyzed, It Is seen
that the support of Bland and Holes aa
candidates was neter solidly grounded. It
was onty as the representatives of tho Is
sue that they rallied delegates to their
standards, and cten after many of them
liai attached, thtmseltcs to the fortunes
of one of the other candidates they ap
peared restless and in an instinctive way
to bo casting about for a new MoseB, The
far-seeing, staid and seasoned leaders of
tho silver men, realizing that their new
creed would alienate the eastern Democ
racy, believed In an alliance with the
sllter lie publicans beyond the Missouri
through Teller's nomination, but the rank
and tile would hate norm of It.
Yesterday, when Urjnn mado his speech,
the delegates suddenly saw In him tho
great adtocate of their cause and they
turned to him with an Impetuosity that
nothing could balk. They wanted a tribune
of the people. They felt thit they hid
him In the eloquent )oung Ntbraskan
who set their imaginations on tire. If ho
had been placed in nomination then, tho
contention would hato been stampeded
as It was to-day. Some of the gray-haired
lender., saw and feared it.
Last night, when ho wni placed In nom
ination, those who thought they had found
their candidate were confirmed In their
opinion The Met which George Tred Will
lam, of Massachusetts, convc)ed in hlri
seconding speech, that it needed tho
strength of )outh to endure the hardships
of a new cause, that a younj arm should
,wlell the scimitar of an Indignant people,
sank home. Here, aa Williams said, was
the new Cicero to meet the new Catallnes
The lenders who doubted tho wisdom of
nominating so )oung and so Inexperienced
i man tried to check the stampede by ad
journing until to-day. The) hoped a night's
reflection would siiilice. At tho suggestion
of adjournment, there wns rebellion. Tho
motion wns declared carried agalnnt a
storm of opposition from the I)ran en
thusiasts, who wanted to nominate their
candidate at once.
A night's reflection only mado them mora
determined. This morning, when the con
tcntlon met to billot, ltryan showed sec
ond on the first roll call. He had already
overhauled Xlow, Only Bland was nhead
and It was a struggle for the Missouri
farmer to get the 23$ totes which he re
ceived. 'The stampede began on the next
On tho fourth ballot, Bryan took the
lead and Bland fell back, hopelessly beaten.
The nomination was made unanimous on
the next ballot.
Some have sought to find In the nomlna
tlon, In 1&&0, of (JarfHM. who was not a
candidate, a parallel with Bryan's nom
ination to-day. But there la no parallel,
(larfleld was only nominated ofter one of
the hardest and most protracted conten
tion contests of the century, Grant, Blaine,
Jldmonds, Sherman and Washburne were
then contesting for mastery, an I, after
thlrt)-flte ballots, the rival leader ond the
convention turned to Oarlield, who had
electrified the delegates by his matchless
ratory and commanding presence.
To-day, the support of the other candi
dates simply melted away, and Br) an won
without a struggle.
On the first ballot, Bland got 233; Bryan,
105; Holes, M; Matthews, M; McLean, 51j
Cat'lbou, W; Blackburn, S3; Pennoyer, 10;
oilman, U; btevnson, 2; Teller, 8; Camp
bell, 2; IliMsell. 2; Hill. 1. There were IStf
gold men who refused to vote. They de
clined to participate In ihe nomination on
the platform adopted. The latter realised
that the gold men would probably place
another ticket In the flU. or, If they dl 1
pot actlvV oppose the nominees of this
convent'ln the campaign which was to
follow, ihat they woull passively, at least,
give aid and comfort to the political ene
my. Pennsylvania alone of the gold states
continued to participate In the proceed,
ings. She cast her sixty-four votes for
Uover nor PattUon to the end. Most of the
Uier sold wen wtia vt4 cut ibeir tab
lots also for Pattlson, but there were scat
tering totes for Stevenson, Httt, lluell
On the second battot Alabama sought to
check the rout that hod already begun by
changing her tote from Boles to lllmd,
but Br)an was overtaking him with giant
strlles, Blanl gained , while Br) an nl-
a need !2. Boles nn tho principal loser.
Ill- vote dwindled to 37.
On tho third ballot, Colorado gate tip
hope of Teller, the mention of wlinso nnmn
had been cheered and hissed by tho gal
lerlci, and Oregon gave up lenno)cr. In
tho Ohio delegulon, the Br) an forces
licked but seven totes of a majority, nml
there was oprn rebellion In Illinois and
other states which wanted to siting Into

reach til, Bran bad 4M tote of tho SOI re
quired to niakn a. two-thirds majority of

two-thirds nf tho toting constituted the
two-third majority tinder the rule. Ohio

when New lork was Culled: "In view of

Ohio cast fort)-slx totts under Iho unit
rule for John U. McLean. Delegato lloll
Ing, of Cleveland, challenged tho tote nnd
thr old row In the Ohio delegation, which
has been tho feature of so many national
contentions, was foinJ lurking behind the
announcement. When the roll of delegates
was called, old convention presi men mar
veled to hear Allen W. Thurnian, n son of
the "oil veteran," cast his tote for Mc
Lean, who, during the life of hit father,
had been one of his bitter opponents.
The call showed JO of Ohio's totes for Me
Lean, 2 for Bland, 1 for Br) an, 2 for Pattl
son. There was one absentee. Under the
unit rule tho forty-six votes of the stato
were counted for McLean,
Oregon cast her eight votes for IVnnoer,
Pentis)lvnnlx her slxt)four voles for Pat
tlson, amid tho cheers of the gatlerles, nnd
South Carolina seventeen of her totes for
Senator Tillman, while the crowds hissed.
A big row occurred when Wisconsin was
called. General Bragg announced that ho
wan Instructed by the majority of tho Wis
condn delegation to cast iVi tote. One of
the Filter delegates challenged thU, and In
sisted on a call of thn roll of the state,
Tho result was that nineteen delegates re
fused to tot. Senator Money mado the
point of order that Instructions to a dele
gation to tote as a unit coul I not stifle the
will of any who desired to tote.
General Bragg cllmbvd on one of the
chairs of the Ohio delegation to protest,
but tho maddened Burke) es ordered him
down. New York and Vermont offered
him a chair in their defecations. General
Bragg mado his statement a. to the- will
of the Wisconsin delegitlon and itn; re
plied to from the platform by Delegate
Docker), one of the ullter men from Wis
consin. He aroused great enthusiasm by
declaring that If Wisconsin's will was
stilled hero It would bo heard for silver in
I'lery Tnnimnn I'rotrst
The Tammany orator, c't-Kenatar Grady,
made a fiery protest against a ruling w hlch
he contended would practically abrogate
tho unit rule.
The delegates grew, still as Senator
White, the chairman, flu ally ruled that tho
unit rate Instructions did not contemplate
the refusal of delegations to tote. He ruled
that nil silent tote should In considered
absentees, but that every delegate present
who desired to tote had a right to hate Ids
vote registered. This ruling was loudly
cheered, as It bl iznl a way for an ulti
mate ruling that the two-thirds requlnd to
nominate, within the mennlng of the rule,
were two-thirds of the votes cast, accord
ing to the precedent of 1SI0,
'Iho call of tho state- was proceeded with
until the end of the list was reached, when
the chair directed that those states which
had been omitted should be ealled.
Colorado then called, cast her S totes for
Teller. This announcement w u gnettd
with loud hlssis fiom all parts of the
lbo clerk consumed several minutes In
computing the results of the tim ballot,
during which the irowd buzzed excltfdly.
