WHEN A FIGHT WAS MADE ON THE
TO NAME A CENTRAL COMMITTEE
But Like the Rest It Went— Gibbs,
Berg, Koernrr and Childs
Governor DAVID 11. CLOUGH
Lieutenant Governor JOHN L. GIBBS
Secretary of State ALBERT BERG
State Treasurer A. T. KOERNER
Attorney General H. W. CHILDS
Never yet did a cut-and-dried politi
cal programme go through convention
i without some disturbance. The trouble
came yesterday just before adjourn
ment, when the Republicans of the
state had made a ticket, and most of
the delegates were hurrying to even
ing trains. "The machine," as one del
egate put it, had been in the ascend
ency all day. A motion to place the
selection of members of the state cen
tral committee in the hands of the
chairman met with vigorous remon
strance. But a roll call showed the
"machine" still in power. Some of the
old-timers were actually hissed down,
which is an indication of the straits
to which the Republican party in Min
nesota is put to to keep voters in line.
It was clearly Gov. Clough's day.
From the early caucus until the end
of the first ballot the Clough roosters
were crowing on the high boards of the
political fence. As outlined in the
Globe yesterday mori^ng the delega
tions adhered to their pledges, and the
Globe slate went through. There
was no help for it. The bosses had
so arranged matters that the delegates
had to do as they were told.
The convention was called to order
with singular promptness. Nothing
but the dilatory movements of the del
egates interfered with a single session
and adjournment before 3 o'clock. The
band played tunes, and the fire depart
ment played streams of water on the
big Auditorium barn — but, Lord! there
was no appreciable difference in the
temperature inside the building. Hot!
Everybody that had a clean shirt shed
coat and vest and sat sweltering, and
bought ice water and fans from ven
dors, who made themselves a nuisance
in the audience. Seibert's First Regi
ment band sat In the gallery back of
the chairman, and a few ladies found
seats in the vast area filled with empty
chairs. If the officers detailed to keep
the rabble out had been withdrawn, it
is not likely the hall would have been
filled. The "cut-and-dried" sentiment
was too prevalent, and the convention
attracted the smallest audience that
has ever attended a similar gathering
in the state.
The early morning caucuses at the
Windsor were utterly at variance with
the results in the convention when vot
ing began. Perhaps the day was too
warm, but for some reason the cau
cuses were not well attended. Ben
Smith's friends did pretty well. They
wanted hi.n for attorney-general, but
worked him for attorney-general, but
Nate Kingsley's backers
WERE LATE SLEEPERS,
or else they had repented of their
pledges. There was noise but no en
thusiasm. As one delegate put it,
tersely, but Inelegantly: "Damn it,
they've got us. It's too hot to worry."
That sentiment seemed to prevail
among the delegates who were not al
ready pledged to Clough and the ma
chine, and for that reason, perhaps, the
hour of assembling was generally rec
ognized, with the hope that the work
of the convention would be easily and
promptly accomplished, so that the
delegates could get away from the op
pression of hotel bedrooms on the night
The tieket apparently suits every
one. The Klngsley forces are willing
to concede Childs' fitness, and the
sixth district delegates are quite cer
tain Childs is the right man, although
they voted for Douglas. It's a pity
some one didn't tell those people that
the first ballot was complementary to
give the ont of town candidates a po
litical standing. Otherwise the con
vention would have been cut short an
hour. At no time was the nomination
of Childs for attorney general In
doubt. The first ballot was perfunc
tory, the second obligatory. If there
had been any doubt as to the result
the wires would have been pulled, and
the Schiffmans would not have been
released by Gen. Childs from the Ram
sey county Instructions. They would
have been given a rap to drop a white
ball in the bag. Nate Kingsley had
been promised the office three times,
and he had a certain following that
was loyal. Douglas from a geographical
standpoint was the logical candidate
after the nomination of Gibbs. Ram
sey's big vote would have gone in his
direction with half a chance. Ed.
Rogers made a perfunctory speech on
Childs' behalf, but was called down.
Afterward he said he wanted to make
a strong showing for Childs, but he
didn't do a thing except get himself
in disfavor. The Douglas following
was in deadly earnest. They wanted
a man on the state ticket from the
northern part of the state, and an
analysis of the vote shows they clung
to their candidate. The only fight of
the day was made on the attorney
general, and Childs got it.
Nominations for governor were of
the cut-and-dried order. Even Clough,
whom Tim Byrnes boosted into promi
nence, received scant courtesy.
Byrnes was afraid to say much, may
hap, but the fact is he didn't say any
thing worth printing beyond nom
inating his candidate. William Henry
Eustis, of Hennepin, made one of
HIS SKYROCKET TALKS,
That always inspires enthusiasm, and
said he thought Gov. Clough was a
pretty good man.
Then Thomas Simpson, who looks
like a junior edition of Henry Ward
Beecher, made a strong, but hopeless
talk for Van Sant. The hall was too
big for the applause that followed to
be heard as far as the chairman's desk.
Then came Natwold, who named Gibbs.
No one was interested. There was no
cheering. Then came the seconding
speeches, but only the Clough follow
ers got a hand. It was Clough-Clough-
Clough, and the good boys who tried
to put their candidates before the con
vention were practically frozen out
There was noise, of course, when the
ballot for governor was announced,
but not enthusiasm. Then came the
contest for lieutenant governor. , It
was'nt a contest, either. Every body
DAVID M. CLOUGH.
knew Gibbs would be nominated.
There were some fellows outside the
pale who believed another man could
be named, but Ramsey and Hennepin
and the big delegations from Stearns,
Winona and St. Louis had fixed that
matter conclusively. There was no
question concerning the ability of
Staples nor of the fitness of Grindeland.
Gibbs was the man the convention
wanted. The ballot showed that. When
the "Farmer" came to the platform to
acknowledge the compliment bestowed,
he made a strong and characteristic
talk. It was'nt a speech, nor was it an
address. He just talked and the con
vention demonstrated approval.
With the governor it was different.
He came on the platform in the arms
of a committee. His little speech of
acceptance had been prepared, but the
pupil showed lack of rehearsal. He
did'nt even read the typewritten pages
without blundering. Maybe he had
never seen them before. Then came a
huge bunch of roses. Somebody knew
they were to be presented for a great
crock filled with water had been placed
on the chairman's table, and onto it
the boquet was planted, while the
governor read his speech thanking the
delegations for the honor, etc. When
he left the platform the governor bore
with him the roses — which it was
learned later came from an admirer in
It was tame. So tame that even Dar
Reese consented to be reading clerk,
and made use of his office to usurp
the provinces of the chairman at in
tervals when party exigencies seemed
to require. If it had'nt been a dull ses
sion, the convention would have been
adjourned until to-day. Chairman
Benhon may congratulate himself that
he was a party of the first part— that
is, of the machine. Good fellow, per
haps, but not cut out for a chairman
o? a lively body of parliamentarians.
He could be heard beyond the press
tables, but to an observer in the rear
end of the hall he was enacting a
PART IN A PAXTOMINE.
The secretary. Mr. Gunn, did'nt open his
mouth to impart knowledge the entire
day. T'was a good pair and maybe
they were so instructed. Certainly
neither gave offense to either faction
for they said nothing.
Funny things happened in the con
vention. Up to noon yesterday the op
ponents of Secretary of State Berg were
ready to make a fight and had a can
didate in Thos. Morlin, auditor of Carl
ton county. The state central com
mittee had given the Martin party
some tips about the situation, but the
anti-Berg people shut their jaws in
bull-dog fashion and said "we'll stick."
But when the time came for casting a
THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 2, 1896.
ballot the Martinites had shifted to
more solid ground. Martin himself was
ready to make a good talk for Berg
Just to get his handsome face above
the rabble on the floor of the hall.
The Whippers-in were in evidence all
day. Ramsey county, for some reason,
seemed to hold a pull on the county
delegates. Even Hennepin with its big
112 votes, quartered at the Ryan,
could'nt get away from the insidious
Ramsey county influence. The Ramsey
people, so far as could be learned were
hot after Douglas. Whether it was
preference or politics is another story.
Ramsey would'nt have voted solidly
for Childs if it had not been for in
structions. Yet when the test came on
the second ballot and the Ramsey dele
gation was polled, there were but three
who voted for the Sixth district can
didate. One of $hese was "Doc**
Schiffman and he held Ge-n; Child's
release for his action. Douglas was
certain, it was said, of a big Ramsey
county vote after the first ballot. But
it did'nt come.
The nomination of Berg for secretary
of state and Koerner for treasurer did
not create a ripple of excitement. The
matters were rushe£ through by accla
mation with such speed as to suggest
that the delegates were doing what
they were told and would soon get
along to affairs more interesting and
uncertain. Then came the only "scrap"
of the day. A motion to have the chair
man appoint a state central committee,
one from each judicial district and nine
at large, brought a dozen delegates to
their feet. A motion, that if carried
wculd have put the appointment of
committeemen in the power of the dele
gates, was tabled, and Chairman Ben
ham made rulings on points of order
that would have made a school boy
blush in order to keep the appointing
power in the hands of the powers that
already be. The contest was sharp,
and a roll call was demanded. Chair
man Benham, at the suggestion of Dar
Reese, (who was acting as reading
"LET 'ER GO,"
and the vote again showed the strength
of the Clough men.
The so called "machine" was so
strong that there wfis little excitement
and less interest In the convention.
The people who Mid the day before
what they were going to do sat down
supinely and let tHe other fellows do
them. There were so many chairmen —
that is, people with suggestions, that
were acted upon — that Benham might
as well have been fn the woods. The
convention throughout was distressing
ly orderly. The . half hundred ladies
who were in the galleries during the
afternoon were not offended in any
manner. Barring a bit of noise Just
before adjournment, the gathering
might have been taken for a Sunday
school. Even the band was decorous.
"Paradise Alley" and "Dixie were
locked up in the leader's strong box,
and fragments of good things in the
movements that inspire acteton were
tooted all day long. The convention
was harmonious, but lacking in news
and the picturesque features that in
spired Denny Hannafin, who used to
bess the legislature of all the Dakotas,
that he'd have harmony if he had to
fight for it.
ROUTINE OF THE CONVENTION.
When Tarns Bixby, chairman of the
state central committee, had called the
convention to orde^, , Alvah Eastman
started to strain his Toice reading the
call, but Elmer Ad&ihs saved him by
moving that the reading be dispensed
with. The motion prevailed.
Ex-Senator Fiynn; of Otter Tail, rose
to start the business of nominating,
but Tarns recognized 'Senator Timothy
Sheehan, of Ramse*
"I notice that a. vast majority of this
delegate body are on the sunny side of
life," said the s*nk.tor. "Young men !
must be relied on to carry the Repub
lican banner to vidtary. It is fitting,
therefore, that wt shtmld place in the
chair as temporary chairman, a repre
sentative of the younger element. I j
desire to present the name of such a ;
man from that g>reat city of orators, of
silver tongues and silver sentiment. I
nominate Hon. Ellsworth Benham, of
The nomination was seconded and
Mr. Benham was chcteen unanimously.
He said: "We are assembled as Republi
cans to select officers. The supreme
council of our party at St. Louia
adopted a platform so clear there can
be no misunderstanding. We believe
that the fulfillment cf those principles
will throw down the black mantle that
has harassed tlie people. Protection
and honest monej are there incorporat
ed. These principles the Republicans
of Minnesota are pledged to."
Sam Langun, of Preston, was then
chosen as secretary Not being present,
D. M. Gunn, of Grand Rapids, was
elected in his stead.
Then, in short order, the various com
mittees were named, as follows:
Credentials—A. E. Rice, Kandiyohi county.

After the committees had been nam
ed, a recess was taken until 2:30.
After recess A. E. Rice, chairman of
the committee on credentials, reported
that there were not contests, except
from Kanabec and Morrison counties.
In both instances the Clough men were
given the seats. The report was adopt
ed, with only a few negative votes.
Col. Samuel Lowenstein reported from
PRICE TWO CENTS— \ F »^« E A «»
the committee on permanent organiz
ation, that the committee recommended
the temporary organization be made j
permanent. They also recommended
that Hon. Henry Feig, of Kandiyohi, j
be made reading clerk.
On motion of Col. Lowenstein the re
port was adopted. *
Dar Reese moved that, pending the
report of the committee on resolutions,
the convention proceed to the nominat
ion of state officers.
The motion was carried with a hur
rah. Then a delegate moved that nomi
nating speeches be limited to five min
utes and seconding speeches to three
minutes. This motion also prevailed,
TIM BYRNES, OF HENNEPIN,
took the platform to nominate David
M. Clough. Mr. Byrnes said:
Gentlemen of the convention: This Is the
people's year in politics. Six months ago there
arose all over the United States a cry tor the
people's candidate for president. Politicians
then prominent in the party arose against
him and said no, but the voice of the people
was supreme £nd William McKinley was nom
inated as our candidate for president. For
something like three months there has been
a campaign in the state of Minnesota. 'Twaa
for the selection of a candidate for Governor,
and again the voice of the plain people has
been heard, and I arise to name their candi
date for governor, and his name is David M.
We had somewhat of a contest in Hennepin
county. But when the dinner pail brigade
was heard, Clough was supreme. The gentle
men who opposed him are all honest gentle
men, would make splendid governors, and they
will all say "Hail to the Chief, David M.
Clough, our candidate for Governor." (Cheers.)
I know that my friend Eustis, who made
so splendid a campaign, will take the stump
and work for D. M. Clough. I know that
Clapp and I know that Gibbs and Lee, above
everything else, are Republicans, and they
will suport the nominee of this convention
by their votes. McKinley has said that we
need but one thing In this campaign, and that
thing is to keep near the people. We will
keep near the people. Clough is the people's
candidate, and I name him as your nominee
today in this convention. (Cheers.)
There was considerable applause
when Clough's name was mentioned
as "the candidate of the people," but
otherwise Tim's efforts fell rather flat.
As soon as Byrnes had quit, the
venerable and Beecher-like Judge
Simpson, of Winona, climbed onto the
VAN SANT NOMINATED.
He looked determined and was evi
dently in deadly earnest. His speech
was delivered with a great deal of vim
and surprising vigor for so old a man.
I was gratified this morning at the very
graceful and well-deserved compliment which
was paid by my friend, Senator Sheehan,
to the young men of the Republican party
