Bsltimore, June 37.-Mr. James' ad dress as permanent chairman was as follows: "1 am deeply grateful to this great conventlop of patriotic American denm eorCts for the high honor which you havtbitbgtowed upon me In calling me YoU pelect the next president of this eflspIlc. .congratulate the democrats of the on on the fortunate ausplces un r which we have assembled.

Our deliberations here shall be for. the qountry's good, tdlerant of each other's views, believing as I do that lwhen the n6hninebs are named by 'this eonveidhion, they will have back of them every. loyal democrat in the re publle, as well as the hearty support of progressives everywhere. Long, Hard Battle. "The democratic party is essential ly a party of, the people because it is the people. It has fought a long, hard battle, .when It seemed that night would never end and that day would never dawn; but the battle In the Interest of the rights of the people we have continued to make until we set the common enemy, the once great repub lican party, divided, distracted and torn asunder, while demooracy is united, harmonious and militant. "There are two records that will be presented to the American people In the coming campaign for their con sideration."' One is the record of the republican party with promises be trayed - arrogantly, defiantly be trayed; and the other is the record of the democratio party of promises faithfully and 4honestly kept. The re publican party itself, recognlsing that President Taft has been unfaithful to the great mass of Americans, re fused by an honest majority of the convention to, renominate him and It 4ag only brought about by the most wholesale and deliberate unseating of delegates honestly elected, that was ever perpetrated In American poll "The republican party, flushed with many victories, imperious as a tyrant, unheeding the demands of the people, took the reins of the government In 190I "under the solemn promise that it would revise the tariff in the in teretts of the consumer. Instead of keeping this' promise as it should have dont because it was their bond of hon or, it betrayed it. The republicans raised the tariff higher than ever be. fore until It resohed its maximum of protection, but 41 per cent. The story of this base betrayal is known to all men. "The democratio party appealed on its record in the izty-fitrt congress on the Payne-Aldrloh tariftbill to the American people and realved frond them a verdict of guilty against the republican party and the bestowal of power upon ourselvep. "How faithtllby we have kept our promises to' them is but a resume of our official actaion. "First, we reduced the tariff upon woolen olptiles 40 per cent.

Baltimore, June 27.-The delelgates to the convention filed into the1 con vention hall today pret,,artd for a long and exciting sesslon. It was expected to be the dity of the climax, the end of the long campalgn waged by the presidential uspilrants. As they came Into the hall. the dele gates apparently were as much at sea as ever as to who would 'be the nominee. All Sorts of Rumors. All sorts of rumors were afloat as to deals and combinations this fore noon. The supporters of Woodrow Wilson, heartened by the so-called 'W4dlson-Bryan" victory last night for the abrogation of the un", rllin in binding all the members of a sat delegation to the views of a majority in the delegation, were clalnting that the New Jersey governor wou3d sweep the convention today and secure the nomination. There was renewed talk of 'Mr. Blryan himself as the nominee today, some of the so-called conservatives 'being quoted as saying that so long at the ,name of a 'progressive seemed In qvitable, it might be just as well to have Mr. Bryan lead the fight for a fourth time. Rome of 'Mr. Bryan's friends indicated' that the Nebraskan apparently was content with the posi tion he now occupies in the conven tion,. the right to .name the candidate being all 'but conceded to him. Supporters of Chlamp Clark were claiming the nomination with as much outward confidence as ever aus they gathered for the day's session. "Dark-horse" talk died away a little today and while many candidates were mmntioned there appeared to be .a con sensus of opinion that the fight lay among the supporters of Wilson, Olark and Bryan. Mr. Bryan had not ormdlitted himself on the question of the presidency in any way up to the time the convention met. Mrs. William H. Taft, wife of the president, was a visitor at the cont vqntion today, having a prominevtt place in the guest gallery. She was entertained by Mrs. Hugh 'Wallace, wife of a delegate from the state of Washlnton. Credentials Reports.

Colonel Roosevelt, according to one leader, had it within his grasp to stand aside, throw his strength to a compromise candidate and see both himself and President Taft ellminated from the contest. hello president told callers today that to Mr. Roosevelt he owed his nomination in 1908 and to Mr. Roosevelt, more than to any other man, qie owed his re nomination last Saturday night. Although some of the Taft leaders profess that there was never any dan ger of defections In their ranks pth ere' are known to have talked openly of a comnpromise candidate and to have made advances to some of the adher ents of Colonel Rosevelt.

At 6:43 o'clock this (Friday) morning, after an all-night session which furnished some scenes unprecedented in American political history, the roll call In the democratic convention in Baltimore was begun upon the nomination of a presidential candidate. The excitement oe the session began with the introduction of a resolution by William Jennings Bryan, which pledged the convention to the selection of a candidate in no way connected with J. P. Morgan, Thomas F. Ryan or August Belmont. Originally, the reso lution called for the removal from the convention of Belmont and the other, who are delegates. This created an uproar and Mr. Bryan withdrew this portion of his resolu. tion. An earnest debate followed-Bryan's purity-progressive resolution was over whelmingly adopted and the nominating speeches .were begun. There was a Clark demonstration which broke all previous records, lasting an hour and five minutes. Then there was a Wilson demonstration which broke the Clark record. There were fiery speeches and there was unbounded eloquence, though most of the weary delegates slept through the closing hours of the session. There was no Harmon demonstration. There was very little Marshall noise. Baldwin's nomination did not excite a ripple. There was no nomination on the first ballot. The unofficial result of the first ballot: Sulzer, New York, 2; Clark, 440%1; Wilson, 324; Underwood, 117'/2; Harmon, 148; Marshall, 31; Baldwin, 22; absent, 2. Necessary to choice, '70.
