were any considerable number of ar
rivals. At 11 o'clock the seats set
apart for delegates and alternates
were empty and there were not more
than 50 spectators. As noon approach
ed the hall filled as the band played,
it was frequently applauded.
The first wave of applause was
when the Texas delegation entered,
waving the Wilson banner. .
Cardinal Gibbons entered the hall
at 11:45 accompanied by Chairman
Robert Crain, of the local commit
tee, and a number of convention of
ficials. Chairman Mack took his place at
the presiding officers desk a few
minutes after noon and the conven

some minutes before he was recog

with Cardinal Gibbons who was wait
ing to pronounce the opening invoca
cation. Bryan Nominates Kern
Alton B. Parker entered just after
proceedingswere begun. The call for
the convention was formally read at

when he entered the hall and there
were scattered shouts for "Bryan."
Chairman Mack directed "the read
ing of the names of the temporary of
cers including Parker for temporary
chairman. This was greeted with a
wave of cheering. Bryan rose sudden
ly and was greeted with tremendous
cheering. He stood in the center of
the platform and motioned for silence,
but the cheering kept up. Bryan then
placed Kern in nomination. The del
egates rose, cheered and swung their
hats.
Bryan spoke slowly and his words
were punctuated with cheers. "If any
ask for my credentials, I tell -you that
in three campaigns I received the votes
of six and one-half million democrats.
Has any one sought harmony more
than I?"
"No, No," was shouted all over the
hall. Bryan said he urged the nation
al committee to consult the leading
candidates without avail. He said the
MERGHANTS PROTEST
AGAINST TAX HATE
(From Tuesday's Daily Examiner)
Tucson, June 24. To protest vigor
ously against an increase in the tax
able valuation of mercantile stocks of
goods from 33 1-3 to 50 per cent, Al
bert Steinfield went to Plfoenix today
as the representative of his own in
terests and indirectly of those of all
other merchants in this city.
Mr. Steinfield is to appear today be
fore the state tax commission, one of
the members of which, P. J. Miller,
ordered the increase when he visiter
the city recently. H. H. Holbert, dep
uty assessor of Pima county, also went
to Phoenix to appear before the com
mission with reference to the same
case.
" The contention of the merchants :s
said to be that an assessment of their
stocks of goods at 50 per cent is not
an appraisal which equalizes with tne
assessments levied against other Mias- i
ses of property.
In the meantime, the ta roll of
Pima county is being held o.ien un
til a decision is reached by the stae j
tax commission. It is otherwise com
plete, Assessor J..W. Bogan states.

chairman, who
had been
'"turned down" by the
committee,
"The song of victory should be sung
by one whose heart has been in the
fight," he said.
Cheers for Parker
"What better man could you find
than Kern?" asked Bryan.
"Parker," came the shouts, of reply,
mingled with "Kern." Bryan had
spoken 22 minutes when there was a
demonstrative interruption in the gal
leries, of cries for "Parker." Bryan
soon had the crowd cheering again.
"We are writing history today," he
said. "The country is waiting to hear
whether this convention will follow
Chicago in listening to the voice of!
predatory wealth." He said the people
had not forgotten the promise of cam
paign funds from Wall street "eight
years ago
As Bryan closed after he!uP for the final struggle was then be-
had been speaking for 40 minutes, Mr.
Kern took the platform. The Indiana
delegation decided to support Parker.
Bryan said he had appealed to one
leader after another to accept but in
If no other progressive ap-
pears," he declared, "I will accept the
candidacy and let you express through!
me what you fought for for sixteen
years."
Kern Calls Bryan a Leader
He said he wished to take no action
which' would prejudice Indiana's can
didate for the presidency, Governor
Marshall.
"I believe Parker is as earnestly
desirous of democratic success this
year as I," said Kern. Shouts for
Parker greeted this announcement.
Kern appealed to Parker to unite with
him and support Senator O'Gorman,
of New York; Senator Culbertson of
Texas; Representative Clayton, of Al
abama, or one of a number of others
designated.
Representative Fitzgerald of Brook
lyn, in behalf of Parker, made his
way to the platform: Kern, continuing
protested against adverse comments
of Bryan, exclaiming that jeers at the
old leader meant not democratic hom
icide, but suicide.
"If appeals for harmony do not pre
vail,' he said, 'then ihe democrats
must turn to the acknowledged leader,
and that leader must be Bryan."
There was great cheering which
mounted the platform.
THE LEGISLATURE MAY

A SNAKE STORY
(From Tuesday's Daily Examiner)
One of the largest rattlesnakes ever
seen around here was caught today'
by the sons of M. Marquis, on his
ranch, three miles out from Yuma.
The boys were picking beans and
in throwing the vines over discovered
the snake, throwing it over with the!
vine. j
They secured a box and after much
effort finally landed the snake inside,
They brought it to town, securely
boxed and it was quite a curiousity
on Main street this afternoon.
The rattler measured over five feet
in length and was over six inches
around, and had fourteen rattles and
one button.

sump holes about the. city covered with

of the editor of The Examiner that
there is a new law relating to the

a stockholder in such a corporation,
it will be well for him to'atterrdto this

perusal of the law that $20 must be
paid this month to the corporation
