Minnesota Democrats insist
That He Run for Gov
ernor Whether or No.
Minneapolis, Minn., July 29. Demo
cratic storm signals which were flying
when the state Democratic state con
vention met here yesterday were torn
to shredfa by the tempest of feeling
which was let loose late yesterday after
noon over the nomination of John Lind (
for governor and the atempt to intro
duce a direct resolution in the party
platform favoring county option.
For more than three hours up to the
very minute when the motion to ad
journ was carried, there was no let up
to the sceire of disorder except for a few
moments "when the chairman made him
self heard, after terrific pounding with
a piece of 2x4 scantling, which he used
as a gavel.
Mutterlngs of trouble were heard
early in the day and an unusual con
dition existed. The delegates were
unanimous in declaring that John Lind
was one of the best Democrats in Min
nesota. They were all his friends, but
divided into two factions. One declared
that Lind must be nominated despite
.his repeated refusals to be a candidate
and his flat declaration in a telegram
from Portland, Oregon, that he would
not accept Tub nomination if made; the
other argued that Lind had been gov
ernor of Minnesota and had nothing to
gain by the nomination and that he
was of sufficient importance to have his
wishes heeded by the convention.
The latter faction argued and shook
fistjs at the chairman and at the other
side, while those who were bent on
nominating Lind howled, hissed and
completely blocked the procedings un
til by sheer force of nois and enthu
siasm they won their point and secured
Even then the friends opposed to the
nomination took advantage of a motion
to make the nomination unanimous to
They wanted an opportunity to submit
the nomination to Mr. Lind by tele
graph and await his answer to take a
recess until S p. m. If necessary, but this
failed and finally the nomination was
made unanimous and the convention
adjourned at 6:33.
Other nominations were made by ac
clamation. On the matter of resolutions there
was no contention except for plank on
county option. The anti-county option
ists were in the saddle in the committee
on resolutions. This committee heard
the resolutions offered by the county
optionlsts and then voted them down
and Inserted a plank declaring for the
initiative and referendum, which the
committee declared would answer the
On the other resolutions in the plat
form there was no fight. On national
