candidate which found full vent. The

Total vote: McKinlev 001'4. Reed S4
After the decision of the Piatt forces
not to present the name of Morton, owing
to tiie war waged against him by the War
ner Miller faction, the nomination of Ho
bart of New Jersey became a certainty.
Tbe McKinley influence was thrown for
him, and although there was an attempt
to consolidate the West and South on H.
Glay Evans of Tennessee, the McKinley
Influence was oo powerful. Besides, It was
the general sense of the delegates that the
logic of the situation required the nomina
tion of au Eastern man for vice president.
The nominating speeches were brief.
Bu'keley of »"onnectlcut, Llppeft of Rhode
Island and Gen. Walker of Virginia were
also placed in nomination. It ouly required
one ballot to determine the contest. Hobart
received 530V% votes, 00 more than a ma
jority. Evans, his nearest competitor, re-
reived 2S0t^. There were scattering votes
for Reed, Thurston, Grant, Depew, Morton
aud Brown.
Hobart I* Nominated On the First
It was 6:15 when Senator Lodge tnqde th«
motion that the convention proceed to the
nomination of a vice president, and that
speeches be limited to Ave minutes. There
was so little Interest In the Becond place,
or so prevalent an appeal for dinner, that
In five minutes the galleries had been de
serted by two-thirds of the seat-holders.
Hamuel Fessenden of Connecticut was rec
ognised to nominate Gov. Buckeiey. but the
convention had exhausted Its enthusiasm so
that the mention of the name of McKinley
failed to draw a hand clap. At the end of
the five mlnutea the crowd called "time"
enthusiastically, and the roll call proceeded
until New Jersey was reached, when dele
gates began to cry "Hobart.'' Q. L. Ho-
bart was nominated by Franklin Fort of
Newark. He spoke as follows
"l rise to present to this convention the
claims of New Jersey to the vi. presi
dency. We nme because we feel that w®
can, for the first time in our history, bring
to you a promise that our electoral vote
will be cast for your nominees. If you
comply with our request this promise will
iurely be redectip'ii. for forty years,
through the blackness of durkuess of a uul
versally triumphant. Democracy, the Repub
licans of New Jersey have retaiued their
organization and fought, as valiantly as If
rlie outcome were to be assured victory.
Only twice through all this long period has
the sun .shone in upon us. In 1SD4, for the
tirst time since the Republican party came
into existence, we scut to congress a solid
delegation of e-ight Republicans anl elected
a Republican to the Vnited Slates senate.
We followed tills in 1SS)5 by electing a Re
publican governor by a majority of 28,000.
And in this year of gr.n-e we expect to
give the Republican electors a majority of
not. Irtss than 20.IXK)." He then presented
the name of Garrett A. Hobart. the New
Yorkers joining with the New Jersey men
in the nomination. J. Otis Humphrey of
Illinois seconded Hobart's nomination. W.
K. Allen of Rhode Island nominated Gov.
Charles W. lJppett. Delegates from the
Southern states cheered when Tennessee
was called, and W. M. Randolph presented
the name of Henry Clay Evans. Kvans was
seconded by a colored dei*gate named
Smith, of Kentucky, whose ffl'ort was loud
ly cheered. Ex-Congressman Robert SI.
Lafollette of Wisconsin also seconded
Hvans' nomination, arousing enthusiasm by
his prediction that the party would gain in
the South, although it had lost ia the West.
