Senator Wolcott of Colorado
took the platform and presented the
name of Blaine, at thj mention of which
there was tremendous cheering and the
bands joined in. The cheering lasted
fully 15 m'nutea and was deafening. At
the speaker's mention of reciprocity it
broke out afresh and lasted another five
minutes. The speaker said that
he desired to place in nomination
the name of the great unrewarded leader
of the republican party, James G. Blaine.
"He never has been president," said the
speaker, "but he will be," and the con
vention broke out again in cheers, and
Wolcott added that he was proud to cast
his vote for a man who always Bought
fcverything for his country and nothing
Mrs. J. 8. Clarkson started to the desk
bearing a floral star, but was stopped and
pait of the crowd hissed. Mrs Clark
son raised her parasol, "Istaris, "Blaine,
B'.nine, James G. Bliiine," keeping time
with her parasol.
Morrison of Mississippi seconded the
nomination of Blaine, and the mantion
of the Maine statesman's name again
electrified the convention. The cheering
which followed lasted 24J minutes.
Richard Thompson arose and nomi
nated Hairiaon, ' T nominate to this
convention for the presidency of the
United States," he said, "the wise states
man. Be. jamin Harrison." Wild cheers
followed the remarks. The nomina
tion was seconded by Chauncey
M. Depew and others amid great enthus
iasm. In seconding the nomination of Harri
son Mr. Depew's mention of the name of
Harrison resulted in cheering for 30 sec
onds The speaker lauded the adminis
tration of Htrrison and said, "who will
be responsible for all these ac'.s? The c owd
answered "Blaine" and for 20 seconds
Chauncey was unable to speak. D.-pew
quoted Blaine as saying that Harrison's
re-election is an imparative necessity.
He said that Harrison's achievements re
flect more credit upon his ancestrv, than
his ancestry reflects upon him. As De
pew closed, Mrs. Depew rose in her seat
right back of the speaker and started the
Harrison stampede. Mrs . Harry Ntw stood
under a picture of Harrison which had
been brought to the stage and waived her
handkerchief. The cheering lasted 15
minutes, the Blaine men cheering for
their idol and creating wild disorder.
CONFERENCE OF BLAINE MEN
Chairman Clarkson said after reaching
the convention hall that the Blaine lead
ers at a conference this morning, decided
not to delay the business of the conven
tion, but to reach aballot as soon as possi
ble It is understood that it was decided tt
the conference to throw the entire Blaine
strength to McKinley, which can readily
be done, excepting Idaho and a few
scattering voles. The main object of
the movement was to defeat Harrison
and then nominate a new man. The
Ohio delegates are disposed to bury per
sonal diffjrences and for the glory of the
state n.mv a man McKinley whom
they believe a winner.
The Michigan delegation, after a brief
conference, and in the interest of Mc
Kinley, decided Dot to present Gen,
Alger's name to the convention.
Wheu Ohio was reached in the call of
states, there was considerable surprise
expressed that Foraker did not come for

Sewell of Xew Jersey was on his feet in
a moment to move an adjournment to the
hour mentioned, but Culiom asked that
the motion be withheld for a few min
utes while he offered a resolution calling
on congress to deal generously with the
Columbian exposition. The resolution
was applauded and referred. Roberts of
Illinois offered another resolution giving
veterans the freedom of the hall with the
right to Occupy any seat vacant thirty
minutes after the convention shall have
been called to order; referred.
Divided as to Adjournment,
Sewell s motion for adjournment to 8 p.
m. was then put and on a viva vocp vote
Chairman I Kinley gave it up, the vol
umes of sound being so nearly equal. It
Was evident that ;i gwxl luanv m the hall
didn't want to adjourn. They wanted to
hear somebody sj eak and there were cries
for ngalls. It was as evident that the
Blaine men wanted adjournment while it
was equally observable that theHarrison
force was divided. The important fact
was that no business could have been
done and the time must hava been occu
pied in oratory nr singing. A rising vote
wasCtaken and resulted aye, 4e7; nay, 'Jul).

The Vets Obtain Admittance.
An interesting announcement was made
immediately after the gavel fell, the
speaker being Chauncey Depew, who said
that Colonel R. W. Thompson, of Indiana,
was S3 years old. Some felicitous speeches
by Colonel "Dick" and Depew followed.
Then the first real business of the evening
came up. The resolution admitting vet
erans to the hall, etc., was reported favor
ably and promptly and unanimously
adopted. A communication from Titus
ville, I'a., was read, asking the convention
to announce in ope a session the terrible
calamity that has fallen on that city. No
action was taken other than the reading
of the letter.
Itei(irt of the Credentials Committee.
The regular order of business was the
report of the credentials committee and it
was called for. Chairman Cogswell did
not have it in writing but said he would
give it verbally if the convention so de
sired. There being no object inn he pro
ceeded to make his report from memo
randa he had on slips of paper. As he
spoke the reporters and stenographers
took down his words. The report en
dorsed the uncontested list made up by
the national committee, except in a few
cases which are adjudicated in the report.
