Philadelphia, June 20. The New
York delegation was called to order
last night by Ohamu-ey M. Pepew, the
eiinimian. Slxt3- delegates were pre
sent of the seventy-two. Governor
Roosevelt arrived promptly. Chairman
Iepew said the meeting was called for
the purpose of deciding whether ine
New York state delegation should aet
uImu a nomination for viee president.
Governor Koosevelt had made a state
ment of bitt isiiRu. but that state
ment had not stopped the sentiment in.
his favor. He moved that Lieutenant
Governor Woodruff le allowed the ptiv.
iiejrei of the floor for t he purpose of
uiakiug a statement and ibis was or
dered. Woodruff said in brief that If
New York wanted any one else he
would pet off the- track, but if New
York did uot indorse some other mau
he asked their indorsement.
Governor Koosevelt saJd that it wa
due to VoMiriitI that "I should sey one
word a to my osItioii. It is simply
to ask you to take the words I have
uttered at their fae value. If yon
iloxi't think I rueau them you don't be
lieve in ue for viee president or any
thing eUe. but if you think 1 meau
them, then I ask you to stand with me.
After a long consultation with many
men not a few or whom are present
here tonight I definitely took the po-
iiion that I did not wish to I nom

l:epiibl-an party choe to renominate

have seemed to doubt me a to what I
meant to say. Now. gentlemen, I want i

Then there was a discussion, each
meinter giving his views. All agreed
that New lork should have the vice
presidential candidate: some were for
raking Roosevelt at his word and oth
ers ror insisting on his announcing
that he would accept. At one point
Roosevelt broke In: ' You held the state
convention. You did uot lake anv ac

for the vice presidency. The temporary
chairman. Senator Klaberg. gave ex

Bloouiiugton, Ills., June 20. A wild
conflagration swent over the business
portion of Bloouiiugton Monday night
and yesterday morning, leaving in its
trail the charred and blackened ruins
of inore than half of the city's linest
business blocks, together with the court
house and other public buildings. Con
servative estimates by insurance
agents place the loss m not less than
$2.UOU.0iH. In the block northeast of
the court house square the lire broke
out at 12:30 o'clock, aud borne by a
strong outhvet wind, cut a diagonal
swath across the court house square
into the blocks on the south and west.
Both the north and eat sides of the
court house are in ruins; two other
blocks cornering on the square aud
one-half of the block west of the square
In the vicinity of the court hon$e the
path of the lire is nearly two blocks
wide and its area was conliued to that

most strenuous efforts of the Blooui

ageucy in fighting the conflagration.
and some line buildings were sacrificed
to save the blocks to the southwest
of t he court house. The court house
stands a blackened shell, gutted from
dome to basement, but the records
were removed aud saved. The clock

The court house cost $400,000 twen

From the rapidity with which the i
fire spread it was soon apparent that
the Blooiningtou department was pow
erless and messages were sent to the
surrounding towns for aid. Responses
were quick, but steam could run no
race against the conflagration. Before
the special trains carrying aid from
Peoria could arrive the tire had en
compassed the court house. In the
block west of the square the western
branch of the lire was checked by the
combined efforts of the departments
and with a liberal use of dynamite.
