crats of New-Hampshlre decllned to vote. One
gold man of the State voted for Pattison. and
thua the State was kept out of th- silver camp.
The chalrman of the New-Jersey delegatlon
sald- "The platform of yesterday makes lt 1m
possible for New-Jersey to put any Democrat
upon that platform. Her twenty dclegates,
therefore, refraln from votlng."
The silver delegates awoke and htssed New
Jeraey for thus declinlng to comrnlt Itself to the
Populistlc programme. but worse was to happfn
to them.
Roswell P. Flower, looking very rale and also
betraylng evldencea of suppressed wrath, arose
at the head of the New-York delegatlon. He
had favored a bolt. and had been voted down.
Davld B Hill and Wiiliam C. Whltney. who had
auppressed hlm. were absent. But Mr. Flower
ground hls teeth together and resolved to make
the little speech B hlch the New-York delegates
had instructed him to make for them. The Con
venton Hall became strangely still. Mr. Flow
er'a volce rang out flrmly:
"Mr. Chalrman. I am dlrected by the New-York
delegatlon to say that. ln vlew of the platform
and of the actlons and proceedings of this Con?
vention, they will not vote for any candidate for
Prealdent or Vlee-Presldent."
The allver delegatea and silver men roundly
hlaaed the New-York delegatlon. but were met
with a storm of cheers from the gold delegates.
"Put them out!" yelled a large number of silver
deleg.'es. "You don't belong ln this Conven?
tlon." The faces of Thomas F. Grady and James
J Martln and other Tammany tlgers were a plct?
ure of ama-ement and wrath as they heard these
crtea. And yet they have heard them before ln
Natlonal Conventlons. The chalrisan reBtored
order. the New-York delegatlon looked sullen
and Mr. Flower had the happy appearance of a
man who has flred off a bomb.
Ohlo was next called. The chalrman of the
delegatlon called the entlre vote for McLean
under the unlt rule. A challenge was ahouted
and a rollcall ordercd. Out of forty-slx delegates

WiBconsIn got Into a wrangle, four silver men
Inslsting upon votlng and General Bragg insist
ed that the deb-gation acted under the unlt rule.
A poll of the delegatlon was made. General
Bragg lnslsted that a majority of the delegatlon
lad voted to wlthhold Wlsconsln's vote. and
ander the unlt rule the State eould not vot.-. The
rollcall of .Vlsconsin went <>n. General Bragg
Jecllned to vote, and Senator Vllas. whose name
was next called. decllned to vote. General Bragg
mounted a chalr and d?mand?-d the readlng of
the delegation'a instructlons by the State Con

*.he vote of .Ylsconaln eould not be recorded.
There were four silver men ln the delejtatton

four allver delegatea of Wleconsln eould vote,
alnce they had not recelved any lnstructlone not
to vote, Fsur Wleconsln votes were thus re
corded for silver, and the great unlt rule was, In
a measure. fractured. Twenty gold Democrats
of Wlseonsin. however, refralned from votlng.
The flrst ballot greatly encouraged Bland and
Bryan. but eould not be sald to be cheertng to
any of the other candldates. Moreover, WO dele?
gates were absent, or dld not vote?an eighth
of the Conventlon.
The vote In detail for each candidate was as
follows: Bland, 08; Boies. 80; Bryan. 10..; Pat?
tison. 95: Blackburn. 83; Matthews. 37; Tlllman,
17; McLean. 54; Pennoyer. 10; Teller. 8; Camp
bell. 2; Russell. 21: Stever.son, 2; Hill. L
But the seventy-two votes of New-York were
mlsslng. The chalrman of the North Carollna
delepation had sald. looklng nt the Now-YorU
ond New-Jersey delegates: "Because of the plat?
form. North Carollna casts Its vote for Wiiliam
J. Bryan," and the chalrman of the Ohlo delega?
tlon had thought it proper to say, glanclng back
at Governor Flower: "When Ohlo sends a dele?
gatlon to a Nattonal Convention, she does not
expect them to sulk and pout lf they don't have
thelr own way."
The second ballot, therefore, was begun by the
silver delegates with a wrathful feeling toward
the gold Democrats. Thefollowersof Bland were
at once chcered by the Alabama delegates de
sertlng Boles and castlng their twenty-two votes
for Rlchard P. Bland. But. whlle the Bland peo?
ple were thus deslrous of lncreaslng hla vote, the
followers of Bryan had a Blmilar deslre, and
they had more success. Senator Tlllman retired
as a candidate for President. and flung the vote
of his State for Bryan. Callfornta also threw
seven votes to Bryan. Mlchlgan concentrated
her twenty-eIght votes upon Bryan. New-York
continued silent. Colorado voted agaln for
Teller, and was hlssed. Maasachusetts gave
Stevensor. flve votes, and Minnesota followed
with four more for the Vlce-Presldent. When
New-Jersey was called two of the gold delegates
weakened and voted for Pattison. The readlng
clerk made an error and announced the two for
Bryan. Chalrman McDermott Jumped to hls
feet and exelalmed: "No, not so bad as that;
two for Pattison, the rest not voting."
Marston, of Loulsiana. a Bland man, moved
to nl.rogn.te the unlt rule. He sald lt was out
rageous to stifle the minorlty. Senator Jones
ralsed a point of order that the motlon from
Loulsiana should be referrcd to the Commlttee
on Rules wlthout readlng. Standing on a chair
the Loulsiana man shouted for his rights. The
Conventlon recognlzed the Loulsiana man as tlv
gehtleman with the unslakable thlrst. who trled
to address tho Convention the day before yes?
terday. and drank up all the water on the
ehalrman's desk. A wag carrled him a drlnk of
water. The Convention roared with laughter as
the delegate drank the health of the Convention.
He mounted the platform and denounced the
two-thlrds rule as "a eowardly subterfuge," and
was hlssed. Marston kept Interruptlng the
chalrman, and was reproved. The Convention
got into great confusion. Senators Blanchard
and Money were yelltng at the top of thelr
voices. Meantlme the announcement of the
second ballot was-wlthheld. Chalrman Richard
son declare.,1 Marston not ln order.
The second ballot showed that Bland galned
4.. votes. Boles lost 40. Matthews lost 3. McLean
lost 1, Bryan galned 02, Blackburn lost 42, Patti?
son gained 5, Pennoyer lost 2. and Stevens.m's
vote increased from 2 to 10; the number of gold
delegates not votlng decreased from 188 to 160.
The vote as announced for this second ballot
was as follows: Bland. 281; Boles. 37; Bryan,
107; Pattison. 100; Blackburn. 41; Matthews.
34; McLean. B8, Pennoyer, 8; Stevenson, 2; Tel?
ler, 8; Hill. 1. There were 102 absrntees or men
not voting.
Mr. Bryan had galned more than Mr. Bland,
and the former's supporters feit greatly en
couraeed. Evldently it was to be a race be?
tween Bryan and Bland for the nomlnatlon.
Mr. Br> an obtalned on the thlrd ballot the vote
of Colorado, that State dropplng Teller. The
State of Qregon also abandoned Pennoyer and
east Its vote for Bryan. The thlrd ballot. when
announced, showed that Bland had gained 10
votes. golng up from 281 to 201. whlch proved to
be hls largest vote; that Bryan had Increased
hls vote from 107 to 210. or a gain of 22 votes:
that Blackburn had shrank from 41 to 20, and
that Boles had lost one vote.
Whlle the fhlrd ballot was belng COmpUted
Oregon holsted a sllk hat on a pole wlih a plct?
ure of W.J. Bryan tacked upon lt. The Bland
men showed signs of distress at the unexpected
growtb of the Bryan boom. Governor Altgeld
and hls lleutenants. Hlnrlchsen and Fithlan.
moved about the aisles worklng vnllantly to
hold Bland's followlng agalnst the tbrcatened
stampede to Bryan.
There were aigns of breaking up in several
Stat" delegatlons who had been votlng for Bland.
Alabama voted slx for Bryan. but they were
held for Bland under the unlt rule. The total
vote on thla thlrd ballot was as follows: Bland.
201; Boles. 86; Bryan. 210; Pattison. 07: Black?
burn. 20; Matthews, 34; McLean. 54; Stevenson,
9; Hill, 1.
The Conventlon was ln a .ulver of excitement
when the fourth ballot began, for It wns sus
pected that a nominntion might be made on
this ballot. At least. the Convention would
know whether the vote of Wllliam J. Bryan
would go on expandlng at tbe rapld rate that
threatened to makf. him so.n tha nomlnee. Ala?
bama started what looked like a stampede for
Bryan by abandonlng Blcnard P. Bland, and
voting for Bryan. This desertlon of Bland by
the Alabama delegatlon destroyed Bland's
chances, whlle it greatly advanecd those of
Bryan. Another State whlch went over to
Bryan was Kansas. This was a body blow to
Bland, slnoe'i'.ansas Is adjac. nt to Mlssourl. and
Itfl Democratlc polltldans are very friendly.
The llllnola delegatlon became turbulent en he
holdlng this rush fiom Bland to Bryan It
seemed to requite all of Governor Altgeld's in
fluence to prevent the delegatlon abandoning
Bland at once. and announelng Itself for Bryan.
Several of the Chlcago delegates re.oltedagalnst
Governor Altge!d, ar.d trled to go to Bryan, but
the Governor managed to throw the forty-.-i .ht
votea of IlllnolB for this fourth ballot to Bland.
But the drlft to Bryan lrreslstlt.ly continued.
Idaho, ln the mldst of great cheerlng. changed
from Bland to Bryan, and Kansas qnlckly
changed her solld vote to Bryan. It looked aa
lf Bryan would certalnly lead on this ballot.

At 2:30 o-rlock "Buck" lllnrlchaen. chalrman
of the llllnola delegatlon, arose. and, ?e< urlng
the attentlon of the chalr, asked perml.ialon that
hla delegatlon mlght have tlm.- to conault regard
Ing Its future attltude. Tbia permisalon was
granted, and the delegatlon at once retlr.-d to a
commlttee-room to caucus. The objec. 0_ this ac?
tlon was to throw the vote of the dMsajaUon soli.l
ly for Bryan. of Nebraaka. At the tlm. the dele?
gatlon retired the Conventlon was enjoying an in
formal recesa Whlle th. vote of Tenneasec waa
belng taken, It havlng been pssaed lB the fourth
ballot, lt was Bald that the lowa delegatlon. be?
fore the cloae of the fourth ballot. became unnily
and threatened to bolt to Bryan. Thla gave the
frlenda of the Nebraska man strong ground to
hope thnt In tho fifth ballot he would secure
enough votes to give him the nomination. Ore
gon gave Bryan her entire vote on the fourth bal?
lot. Bland made a galn of three votea ln A'est
Virglnla. and Bryan galncd three In Wlseonsln.
When the roll of the fourth ballot waa com
pleted lt wns apparent that Bryan had taken the
lead and Bland had dropped Into aecon.l place,
while Bolea'a vote nnd Rlackburn's were grad
ually dwlndllng. The followers of the Btaid old
lawycr-fnrmcr of lowa were much dlscouraged
at the poor showlng tot had made. but ahowed rjo
slgns of desorting him, although Bryan was the
second eholce of a large majority. Oovernor
Matthews's frlends, who hnd expected to control
the entire vote of Florlda. were chagrlned when
Bryan captured ilve out of the eight from there.
Whlle the vote on tho fourth ballot was being rt
capltulated the delegatlon filcd out for a cauciis.
Durlng thelr abeencs fhe confuslon grew am.mg
the delegates as to the lntentlons of illlnois. lowa
was reported to be on the verge of drupplng Boles
for Bryan. The Dlstrict of Columbla delegatefl
sought recognlilon to change to Bryan, but dld
not get lt. The chalrman deelined to hear H ports
for changos. The announcement of the vots >?n
the fourlh ballot wa? mad", and showed Bryan
leadlng with 2*0 votes.
As the an.ioun.'ement that Bland's vote had
dwindlcd on the fourth ballot frcm 21)1 to 1141
was made, a shrlll whistle went up from the
gallcrles. In the next Bentence the clerk con
veyed the news lhat Bryan's vote had teaped
from 210 to 2*0. Immedlately a great shout went
up from a thousand throats. The rest of the
vote was lost in the pandenionlum that fol?
lowed. State after State rush.d with thelr
atandards to the Nebraska delegation. Vlrglnia.
whlch had been voting for Bland. went flrst;
Idaho, New-Mexlca and Mlnnes.-ta promptly
jolned all the States that had been votlng for
Bryan. Every delegate stood up and cheered.
The Bryan men were wild wlth frenaled exclte?
ment when Illlnois marched back from the
caucus. and it was nolsed about that that State
had resolved to aupport Bryan upon the next
ballot. It waa apparent to every delegate that
Bryan was to bc nomlnated. and, therefore,^ a
tremendous demonstratlon to tlie State of Ne?
braska and to Bryan set in. The atandards of
nearly all the States were snat.hed up and car
ried to the centre of the arena of the Conven?
tlon hall. where the standard of Nebraska had
been plaoed, and then were danced in th" alr.
In the mean time nearly all of the 5HN) aste
gntes ImbI alternates and 1.".,<BHI sp.-ctators had
stood" up, an.l thousands <>f peraona were cheer?
lng and Bhoutlng. Buch a fiigantle uproar pro

banner of the Wllllam J. Bryan Club. of N".
braska The demonstrgtlon for Hryan contlnued
twenty Rltoutea, and it was with dlfflculty the
chairman restor.d order.
"eihen the fifth ballot began every one know In
ad.'inco arhal its termlnatlon would be. The
S*ate of Arkansas alone clung to Rland in the
early part of th" n-ll, while the Statea of Ala?
bama. Callfornia. Colorado and Idaho cast every
vote they had f..r Bryan. Tlie Conventlon walted
until Hinri.hsfn said, "Illlnois casts 4s VOtea fof
Wiillam J. Bryan/* and Ibsn went off Into u
spasm of entliuslasm which lasted t<-n minutes.
Senator Bate, ..f Tenness.-e, followed Altgeld B
example. changlng the i>4 votes of Tennessee
fn.m the Bland to the Bryan column. After that
it was the deluge, th" State of Virglnla. with '-'4
votes also deeerttng Rland for Bryan, and Ita
example belng followed bj the Terrltortea of Arl
zona, NSW-MexlcO, Oklahorna and Indlan IYnl
John R. McLsaa thought ll high tlme to cast
the vote of Ohlo foi Hryan. He mounted a chair,
wared a <nno at the .hairman and said: ' ?>h!o
wlthdrawa the nams of John R. MoLean and
casts 4>? voteB f..r Wllllam J. Bryan." Another
storm of enthustasm roae. Bland vas besten.
Bryan wa.s nomlnated, or soem would be. Oov?
ernor Btone, of Mlaaouri, recognlaed tbe fa.t.
and, sscendlng th- platform. faced the audlenee.
Every ona knew he was golng to wlthdraw
Bland's name. and llstened to what he had 10
sav. He stiu.'d th-it hs had received a letter from
Mr. Blgnd a few days ago statlng that h" dld n"t

dent hla name must be wlthdrawn. Th" su>'< -ss
of th<- free-roinage cause was th" paramounl
ronslderation. "The cause ls above the man."
wrote Mr. Rland. in concludlBg his letter. Mr.
Stone aald that it was apparent that Mr. Bryan
was ths Cholce of a majority of tlie delegates,
and bs therefore would wlthdraw Mr. Bland'a
name and would cast the vote of Mlasouii for
Wllllam J. Bryan. "In Mr. Bryan." aald Mr.
Stone, "the peopia hav.- a leader as beaullful as
The Bupporters of Horacs Bolea and of Clauds
Matthews also withdrew their names and cast
ihe vote of lowa and of Indiana for Mr. Hryan.
Bryan had a clear two-thlrda majority of the
Convention by this tlme. and was f.,rma.ly de?
clared to le the ciindidate of the Democratic
party for Presldent.
"I move to make the nomination unanimous,"
said a N. braska delegate.
Then* was a tbunder of "nocs" from the
New-York and Pennaylvania delegmtaa, but the
(hairman, nevertheless. said cooly: "Tho nomi?
nation is made unanimous." The audacity of
this proceedlng greatly emused the Baatern Dem?
ocrats and they roared with laughter.
The Conventlon then postponsd the nomination
of a candidute for Yic.-Pr.-sldent, and took a
rscaaa until the evening.
To-night a session was held for th* purposs
of selecting the candid.ite for \'ice-President,
