The roll call of the nomination be gan at 1:45 o'clock this morning with the following result: Hearst, 309: Sul zer 124 and Dix, 107; total, 450. A Tammany Platform. The platform adopted is a triumph of Tammany diplomacy. It was de signed by a master of political finesse, Bourke Cockran, of New York, and deals with the Hearst ideas sufficient ly modified to please the conservative element. On national issues, it de clares outright for the election of United States senators by the people, saying: we favor the election or u. . sen ators by direct vote of the people, and pending the adoption of an amend ment to the federal constitution, the enactment of state legislation provid ing for their direct nominations by popular vote. Regarding Mr. Bryan, the platform adopted is pleasantly complimentary, that is all. His candidacy for the presidency is utterly ignored, the con vention declaring: "In common with the democrats of all the states and expressing "senti ment of the high minded citizenship of -the republic without reference to party, we view with pride and satis faction the hospitality and acclaim which have been accorded, at home and abroad, to that great democrat leader and typical American William Jennings Bryan, to whom the demo crats of New York extend most cor dial and sincere felicitations." ' An appeal for the Jews in Russia is made in the following language: '"We ask the federal government to exercise its influence to bring about speedy cessation of the atrocities now being committed against the Jews in Russia, which have shocked the con science of civilization."

"I have been over the district pretty thoroughly and I find that there is no reason why Watson should lose any votes. Rev. Kubn seems to be a good campaigner but he has no grounds to work on." con tinued Ludlow. It was suggested to Ludlow that the same falling oft in the Republi can vote in maiana, as occurrea in Maine would affect the local situa tion. "Maine is not a criterion said Ludlow. "There local issues entered into the campaign and these in no way will affect Indiana." Ludlow discussed the fight which the American Federation of Labor is making on a number of congress ional candidates. He said that F.d- gar Perkins, president or tne Indi ana Federation of Labor had been asked by President Gompers, about the different candidates in Indiana. Perkins in making his report stamp ed Congressman Watson "O. K." and said there was no reason to attack him. The Rev. Mr. Kuhn was interview ed by Ludlow, The people over the District, Ludlow says can't under stand why Kuhn does not reply to Dailey, the Prohibition candidate for congress, who challenged him to a debate.

The New York Voter Seems to TRUEBLOOD HOME FROM PHILIPPINES Richmond Young Manv Has Been in Service of U. S. Coast Survey There. TALKS OF CONDITIONS HE SAYS THAT IN. MANY RE SPECTS THE INVASION OF THE ISLAND HAS NOT BEEN A SUC CESS. ;.-. Howard Trueblood, a son of Prof. William N. Trueblood of Earlham, who for the past two years has serv ed as a member of the United States Coast Survey, stationed in the Phili ppine Islands, is visiting his relatives in this city. Mr. Trueblood Is an old Earlham student and has been connected with the United States Coast survey for two years, serving the most of this time in the Philippine islands where the United States is striving to rem edy the conditons in every way pos sible. Mr. Trueblood comes back to the United States with rather discourag ing stories, as to the manner in which the natives of that country are taking to the idea of the .United States control. He says - that many of the colored inhabitants are willing to take up with the new laws, but many are so ignorant that they do not look with favor upon the many improvements that have been made, they desiring to remain in their for mer state of barbarity. This is among the lower class of blacks, who however, are in the majority when the population is taken into acconut. Although the most of his timl has been spent on the water, Mr. True blood has come into, close contact with the natives of the country, and on the whole he feels that the United States occupation of the islands is not as successful as many people are in the habit of thinking. Mr. Trueblood will spend a month in this city and then expects to be transferred to Alaska where the Coast Survey department is carrying on an extensive work.
