The request of the chairman that
partisans refrain from cherrlng during
the announcement, was complied with
and strangely enough thero was no
demonstration at the close. Delegates
were too deeply interested in business
and spectators too intent upon the
Bgurea to interrupt business.
"Cold Water" Marsden was on his
chair shouting that the two-thirds rula
be abrogated, but he got no att on.

pished a sensation at the outset, for
Alabama shifted her 22 votes from the
Bland camp to Bryan and the young
Nebraakan'B friends waved their han I
kt rchlefs. Under the unit rule Michi
gan's ,S went for -Bryan. Silence fol
lowed the call of New York. South j
Carolina save up her senator and
brought her votes into Bryan's column
amid much enthusiasm.
The name of Minnesota on the second
call brought a stentorian shout from
Daniel Lawler, "Minnesota on this and

The turning of the tide toward Bryan ;
or* Nebraska, was alarming the mana- |
gers of wheel horses, so that these j
generals skirmished about earnestly ;
among their followers and invaded j
alien camps, while the band discoursed
a solemn air to give the clerk another
opportunity to practice addition.
Then the chairman of the California
delegation announced that under In
structions, he desired to announce a
change in the vote of California. 14 of
the votes were for Bryan, a change of
10, the losers beinjr Blackburn and
Matthews, and thereupon the calls of
"Bryan" were renewed. At the con
clusion of list, the chairman announced
that the clerk would call the state that
had been passed, Minnesota was one
and the chairman of the delegation
said they desired to have the roll
called. This was done with the follow

All the candidates were losers ex
cept Bland, who gained 48 and Bryan,
who gained 92. The Bryan boomers in
the galleries cheered and flourished
flags and photographs of the orator of
the Platte. Delegate Marsden, of Loui
siana, was on his feet again the mo
ment order was obtained, with another
motion to abrogate the two-thirds rule.
"The majority should prevail." he
yelled. "The old custom is a cowardly
Senator Jones, of Arkansas, made the
point that the resolution must be con
sidered by the committee on rules.
Marsden grew red in the face and
called for water. The galleries who
then recognized in the irate Louist
anan, the man who distinguished him
self on the firs* day of the convention
succeeded In developing an unquench
able thirst for water. They were con
vulsed with laughter and yelled them
selves hoarse. Some one got him &
glass of water and he gulped it in full
view of 20,000 screaming people He
then mounted the platform, and again
went straight to the water pitcher
where he again slaked his burning
throat, while the convention rolled
about at his feet like a man in a fit.
Chairman Richardson told the delegate
to state his motion "without debate,"
whereupon the Louisiana man began a
statement saying that the two-thirds
rale should be abrogated and again de
nounced it as a cowardly subterfuge.
Money, of Missouri, moved the refer
ence of the motion to the committee on
rules, when it had finally been stated,
and during the tumult which eßSued
Richardson smashed in the top of the
desk like a paper box. Marsden was
shouting that he rose to a question of
privilege, while delegates showered him
with cries of "water.**
In the meantime Blanchard, of Loui
siana, clamoring for recognition, re
pudiated Marsden's action in the mat
ter of the Louisiana delegation, and in
the delegation's name moved to lay the
motion on the table. Finally a point of
order that the question could be con
sidered only by the committee on rules
was sustained. So Marsden tripped
from the stand buoyant, waving his
arm in recognition of the gallery howls,
while friends rushed up bearing water.

gerous split, eight votes had gone to

Bryan's followers went wild at the
beginning of the fourth roll call when
Alabama changed her 22 votes from
Bland to Bryan. The Nebraska dele
gates climbed to their chairs and led
a cheer. Idaho followed suit by bring
ing her six votes from Bland to Bryan.
There had been a commotion visibly
in progress in the Illinois ranks which
portended changes, but she held firm
to Bland. During the call the Penn
sylvania delegation filed out of the hall
for consultation. Bryan emblems be
gan to blossom out on the floor and in
the galleries. The dark horse had
plunged Into the race so late that there
were no portraits of hhn to be found
in the city large enough for convention
purposes. A morning newspaper which
had printed a full page picture of the
convention star orator was much in
demand. Copies of it were stuck up
in the galleries and a Mississippi man
hung one sheet to the standard of that
state. That there was an upheaval of
the waters in Illinois, became more ap
parent when "Buck" Hinrichsen asked
leave for the delegation to retire for
consultation. The issue was whether
to stay by Silver Dick or follow the
Nebraskan. The result of the ballot
was announced: Not voting 162; Bland
241; Boies 33; Matthews 36: McLean 46;
Favorite Sent Back Into the Rack
Bryan had assumed the lead and the
favorite had dropped back into the
ruck. The reading clerk got no further
than the announcement of Bryan's 280
votes before there was a repetition of
the scene of yesterday, when the elo
quent young orator closed his speech.
The coliseum swayed with enthusiasm.
Cheer followed cheer. The state stand
ards were again uprooted and carried
to Nebraska. Louder and louder the
whirl of sounds swelled. Men and
women went frantic. Hundreds of
newspapers, umbrellas were furiously
hurled through the air. Suddenly two
beautiful young girls dressed in pink
appeared on a table o£ the alternates
seats In the valley of democracy. They
held In their hands a large silk flag,
on one side of which was shown the
clear-cut features of Bryan. To and
fro it waved while 20,000 throats yelled
and screamed. The band played, but
could not be heard above the Niagara

gates fought uke men demented for
the Illinois standard, where Gov. Alt
geld stood resolutely guarding his ban
ner, but the delegates were intoxicated
with enthusiasm. A hurried vote was
taken. Bryan carried the day and the
state's banner joined the parade. A
fight occurred over tbe possession of
the Buckeye state banner, but Mc-
Lean's friends, though battered and
shaken, held the fort
The storm rolled on and on. A big Bry

closing sentence yesterday and in

fore the demonstration subsided.
Throughout it all Mfs. Bryan sat to the
right of the platform. Although a
bright look of, pleasure lighted her
features, she d|fl not appear at all ex
erted by this wpnderful demonstration
in honor of her distinguished husband.
She is a rather a small, sweet-faced
woman with sqft eyes and hair. She
was dressed simply in a gown of dark
material. The.pnly bit of color about
her was a little h^pch of deep purple
in her- black chip hat. No one in the
vicinity seeme^ to £ recognize in this
little calm-faced woman, the helpmate
of the hero of tjhe fiour.
When an approach to order had been
obtained the clerk took up the an
nouncement of the vote. The remain
ing names were as follows: Blackburn
27; Pattison 96; Stevenson 8; Hill 1.
The whole number of votes was 768
and the clerk announced 512 to be
necessary to a choice.

RULING mr THE CHAIR.
After the ballot was announced the
chairman said: "The proceedings of
the convention have reached a stage
when it is necessary for the chairman
to announce his construction of the
rule with reference to the two-thirds
vote. A careful examination of the
records heretofore made, leave open to
the chair but one decision. The last
Democratic convention made rules
which we have re-enacted here. Among
others they have adopted the rules of
the last convention, and on page 29, of
the official record of the last conven
tion, I And a reference to trje ante
cedent rule, which has stood upon this
record without objection, ever since. It
was adopted in the Ohio convention of
1852, and in so far as Is pertinent here,
it is as follows:
"Two-thirds of the whole number of
votes given shall be necessary for a
nomination of president or vice presi
dent. The rules of the house of repre
sentatives which have also been adopt
ed, are clear and positive that when a
quorum is ascertained, the rule which
I am now about to refer to must be
held the true and proper rule of con
duct, and therefore, in the opinion of
the chair, two-thirds of the votes given
will nominate a candidate for president
and vice president of the United
The announcement of the chairman
was received amid great confusion.
After the convention had subsided, the
chair announced that the secretary
would again call the roll. The state of
Alabama was called, but before its
chairman could make his announce
ment, Mr. Marston, * of Louisiana,
roared: "I appeal from the chair to
The chair said he would be in order
when the result was announced. The
order having been at length restored
upon the floor, the chair directed the
secretary to begin the call of the states
for the fifth ballot.
The roll call proceeded without inci
dent, until the state of West Virginia
was reached, when that state requested
to be passed. The nineteen votes from
Wisconsin that had been withheld from
the first, still declined to vote. The
state of Illinois was also passed, and
the delegation from Ohio marched to
their committee room for consultation.

The roll oall having been completed
in regular , course, the secretary re
turned to call the names of the states
which had been passed. Upon the
second call, the state of West Virginia
was still not ready to vote. Illinois,
however, upon the second oall cast 48
votes for Bryan, amidst the greatest
enthusiasm. The Bryan men were now

MILWAUKEE, Wis.. July 10.— A
sensational suit was filed in the U. S.
court today by general creditors of tho
Northern Pacific railroad company at
tacking the proposed reorganization
agreement seeking the postponement ot
the sale ordered to take place July 25
and asking that the decree of fore
closure and sale be set aside. The
court is asked to enjoin the sale, but
Judge Jenkins has taken no action and
will not until after all the parties have
been heard. This will probably be next
week. At all evente it appears highly
improbable that the sale will take place
on the day advertised. Wheeler H.
Peckham is the attorney for the
creditors. The petition charges that
the reorganization agreement was
brought about by fraud and that the
decree of sale was secured in the same
manner; that the general creditors are
to be shut out entirely from the dis
tribution of the assets, while the stock
holders are allowed to come in and
participate. If the proposed sale is al
lowed to take place the creditors say
they will be unable to protect them
selves for the reason that the property
is so extremely valuable that no single
creditor or indeed, possibly all the gen
eral creditors combined, would be able
to purchase, as the combination of the
secured creditors would raise the pur
chase price beyond what the genial
creditors might be able to pay.
If a certain class of security holders
like in the present case, the bill con
tinues are permitted to make the plan
of reorganization exclude the general
creditors and give preference to the
stockholders in Justice and Oppression,
must necessarily supervene. The bili
submits that it is the right of the gen
eral creditors to participate in any plan
of reorganization and to the exclusion
of the stockholders filed by Morton S
