Last Night's Session.
The deadlock in the Democratic na
tional con-ention over a presidential
nominee seemed more complicated than
ever when adjournment was taken at
12:43 a. m. until noon today. Woodrow
Wilson had made steady gains during
Monday's balloting until he reached a
nigh water mark of 501 votes on the
39th ballot. He remained stationary
on the 40th ballot and then began to
lose ground. The last ballot was the
42d, when governor Wilson polled 494
Speaker Champ Clark reached the
lowest ebb of his candidacy on the
ballot wheie Wilson reached a crest.
He went down to 422 votes at that
time, but Immediately began to pick
up and had gone to 430 when adjourn
ment was taken.
The evening started auspiciously for
Wilson with the 35th ballot and on
the 39th he had passed the 500 mark
with one and a half votes to spare.
Clark in the same ballots had lost 11
votes. On the 40th call of the roll
Wilson's 501 remained the same and
Clark gained a single vote, leaving
him 423. Meantime the vote for Oscar
W. Underwood fluctuated within 10
votes of the 100 mark.
By the time the 40tn ballot had been
completed, there was seemingly no
hope of a nomination last nlgjit The
delegates sat in a sort of stuftOr. The
roll call clerks entered the vote me
chanically, often without waiting for
the responses from the various states.
At the end of the 40th ballot a tired
Alabama delegate moved to adjourn,
but when a roll call on the motion
was demanded by the Wilson forces,
he withdrew it. Another attempt was
made to adjourn after the 41st ballot
and again it failed. After the 42d the
Delegates All Weary.
The weary, bedraggled, peevish ag
gregation of delegates and alternates
drifted into the convention hall last
night with a long dreary night session
in prospect. They confronted the same
monotonous grind of balloting that had
continued from last Friday morning.

Cleaning Out of Ring Rule by the Democratic Delegates
Is but the Prelude to a General Smashing of
Rings He Declares The Missourians Were
Nasty and Mean at the Convention.
(BY ZACH LAMAR COBB)
Baltimore, Md., July 2. We nomi
nated Wilson today and probably would
have done so last night if the convention
had not adjourned. Illinois was ready
to vote with us on the next ballot and
Virginia was going to join us. She is
a true Democratic state and her people
should not be held responsible for the
disgrace of sending Ryan as a delegate
to the convention. Ryan was made a
delegate by a tnck.
The Virginia people flooded their dele
gates with telegrams to vote for Wilson.
Many other delegations were at the
point of coming over to Wilson last
I had hoped that New Mexico would
line up before this time. Her delegates
are good fellows and finally fell in line.
This is the Democratic year. Wilson
can win in November. New Mexico Dem
ocrats need a winning presidential candi
date to help elect Democratic congress
men up there. The controling men of
the New Mexico delegation, however, are
former Missourians and they naturally
hated to leave Clark.
Missourians Are Spiteful.
The Missouri delegation has shown a
spiteful spirit. They are ugly and mean.
This is a pity. Nothing can be gained
by spite work; nothing can be gained by
their insults to Bryan. Bryan is strong
er with the people of Missouri than the
whole Missouri delegation put together.
This spirit of spite in the Clark leaders
is the only thing that delayed the nom
ination of Wilson.
A Great Object Lesson.
The convention has been a great ob
ject lesson. It has demonstrated that
the Democratic party must not and can
not be controled by machines and bosses.
Boss rule, whether in a national con
vention or in an 1 Paso election, is un-
Democratic It is the fountain source
of rotten government and graft. It has
not been tolerated in this convention; it
ought not to be longer tolerated in 1
Paso. The delegates assembled here, and
the people all over the United States,
condemn Tammany because it is an in
stitution in the control of one man.
That man not only selects the men to
ncld offices, but owns and bosses them
after they are elected.
Advises 1 Pasoans.
We must not permit a Tammany or
ganization to exist in El Paso. We con
demn the rotten condition in New York,
and at the same time sit by and let a
similar system grow in El Paso.
All that is necessary to free El Paso
from the "ring" is to let El Paso breathe
in the spirit of the times. If the ring
wins this year, it means that El Paso
is behind in the great procession of pro
gress. It would mean that our people
are not imbued with the moral wave that
is sweeping the country. It would mean
that our city is not ready for the won
derful growth and prosperity that is
ahead of us.
Advice to El Paso.
To re-elect "the ring" would be to re
tard the rightful progress of the magni
ficent city we love so well. I hope our
people will catch the spirit of this con
vention. The rotten combination that
elected Parker, apparently had complete
control on the first day, but the men
who were here to fight for right were
determined and by the power of being
right we have gained control and will
win all along the line.
The people of El Paso are as moral
and are as clean as any people. They
are as courageous; if they will catch the
spirit of this convention we will be freed
from the disgrace of Boss Rule.

touched to the extreme, would have sel
the entire convention ablaze. It was
on this situation that many of the
leaders based a hope of a nomination
before the night was over. They ar
gued that the weary delegates would
break the fast lines they have been
holding and throw enough votes to one
of the candidates to end the agony
of suspense. Others contended that the
situation made an agreement Impos
sible on any one of the candidates be
fore the convention.
The Wilson forces, encouraged by
their steady gain through the day as
serted that in time they would secure
a majority of the convention and that
the delegates, to end the struggle,
would flock to the Wilson standard.
Another attempt to reach some sort
of an agreement among the leaders
failed. The socalled conservatives were
in conference. National chairman Nor
man E. Mack. Charles F. Murphy, of
Tammany hall; Col. George Harvey,
representative John J. Fitzgerald, of
New York; and Roger C Sullivan, of
Illinois, dined together. After the talk
chairman Mack declared that every one
seemed to be "sitting tight."
"I do not believe either Wilson or
Clark can be nominated now," de
clared Mr. Mack just before the con
vention was called to order.
