Baltimore, June 87,?At 8 o'clock
tonight it was the general belief
among the 1 >emo?-r,iis assemhl?d in
Baltimore that Clark's candidacy had
spent Itself, that the nomination ol
a genuinely progressive candidate was
assured and thst the platform would
be satisfactory In all Important re
epects to the great body of the par?
When the convention opened for
the night session, the huge audltorl
: m was jammed with people who
had flocked there in the confident he?
llet that thi hemociat?. would at
once get down to the business of
nominating a candidate. Instead
there came Mr. Hrpan's remarkable
resolution that the -onventlon oust
Ryan and lielmont from its meml r
shlp and pledge itself in advar to
nominate no candidate enjoyin* heir
friendship or th it of J. i terpont
Morgan. The elTect was paralyzing.
A large section of the galleries hurst
into applause but the uelegates were
Everybody felt that the fate of the
party was trembling In the balance.
Men who have been most resentful
of Ryan'a presence here nevertheless
united In feeling that Mr. Bryan's ac?
tion was. to use one of his own
)hrases, criminally foolish* and un?
necessary. When Mr. Bryan con?
cluded his argument for the suspen?
sion of the rule* so that his resolu?
tion might have immediate consider?
ation, It looked as if the party were
facing certain wreck. Then came
Congressman Flood's speech.
Its tone was independent and de?
fiant to the last degtee. "We ask no
concession of any kind of Mr. Bry?
an." he declared. "We reject the
Insolent proposition of the only man
who Is bent upon wrecking the Dem?
ocratic party." Yet even in the face
of this ringing challenge Mr. Bryan
withdrew the last clause of his reso?
lution, demanding the withdrawal of
Belmont and Ryan, and the resolu?
tion was left stivgless.
Even though he resolution might
have 1 i en defeated but for the ac?
tion of the Virginia und New York
delegation there was a good deal of
resentment at Mr. Bryan's course.
The States first on the roll-call voted
heavily against him. The leaders
saw. however, that it would be a fa?
tal mistake to refuse Its passage.
Al*e in i < hi nged its \ote from no
?o yes. Illinois voted hi the atTlrm
atlve. The voce of Virginia was an

followed. The Situation w s saved, at
