The only light which illumines as the sun of
hope thedarK rec ml of those twelve years is
the fact that in 18(8 the state of New York was
triumphant h carried by President Harrison.
He carried it t lien as a gallant soldier, a wise
senator, a statesman who inspired confidence
by his public utterances in daily speeches from
the Commencement of the canvass to its close.
He still has all these claims, and in addition,

with the elements of popularity with which to

Minneapolis, June 11. It was 9
p. m. before the convention resumed
its session. It was little more than
a ratification meeting, the nominee for
vice president having been selecte 1 during
the recess by conference among the lend
ers, and it was made more certain ly a
communication from the Xew York Typo

president was tacitl) lei no the XewJYork

Whitelaw Reid was the prime favorite.

but he didn't say so.
Where He Received the News.
The president was in his office across the
hall from the telegraph room where the
bulletins were being received by an enthu
siastic crowd composed of cabinet officers,
generals in the United States army, news
paper men aud women, attaches of the
executive mansion and colored servants.
Miss Halford rushed across the hall and
saluted the president as she had doue four
years ago at Indianapolis when he re
ceived the nomination. The president was
surrounded by Secretaries Tracy, Noble
and Rusk and by Mrs. McKee, Russell
Harrison, Mrs. Lieut. Parker, and other
members of his private family.
Only One Faee Miaalng.
It was a memorable scene and only one
face was missing to complete the picture

that of Mrs. Harrison, wh O 1 ui nnnn

no doubt, but as yet unconscious that the
extreme anxiety of the past few days had
been dissipated and that her husband,
Benjamin Harrison, had been selected to
lead the Republican party in the coming
campaign for the presidency. In a mo

her father, Russell Harrison congratulat

kissed him ulso. and nil the ,. ,i.i, . rm.

The President Kept Cool.
They were followed by Mr. Halford and
perhaps two dozen newspaper men, who
had been in the telegraph room for an
hour previous hearing the news as it came
from the wire. He shook hands with
them and had some pleasant remark to
make to the many warm greetings that he
received. In an informal way the whole
party exchanged congratulations. The
president seemed to be the coolest person
