f'-nd^d h:s "new nationalism." taking
pains to dcf.n- it as nothing actually

dealt at some length on the subject.
At Knoxville he referred to it sain.

and completed a straight ticket without
any suggestion of fusion. There was
little wrangling over candidates, and
nominations were made by acclamation
in nearly every instance. Mr. Hearst
was not present, but sent a message to
the delegates indorsing their action,
which was read at the convention just
before it adjourned. Only about fifty of
the regularly elected delegates or their
alternates, who numbered about four
hundred and fifty, were absent, it was
Th«~ delegates all assembled at the
Park Avenue Hotel, where it had been
intended to hold the convention, but It
was found at the last minute that they
could not he looked after. Chairman Her
bert L.. Limburg formally called the con

quirements of the law, and adjourned
forthwith to Webster Hall. Tickets of
admission to th«» hall had been given to
th» delegates, but some were lost, and
thr-rp was a Jong delay before the neces
sary identification could be made at the
door and all of th°m seated. Chairman
Limburg finally called the convention to
order at (V 4."
Hearst to Convention.
In his statement to the convention Mr.
Hearst said h« was sorry he was not a
delegate on Wednesday to vote for the
adoption of the platform, for the nom
ination of Mr. Hopper and "to add my
vote to yours In favor of ■ straight In

"I say to-night that I would have sac

felt that a straight ticket would do noth

vote." the statement roa<l.
"But. on the contrary. I am confident
that a straight ticket will unite the pro

In addressing the delegates at the

said that he thought the Independence
League was to be congratulated on th»

showed that the majority was the one
leading factor. He said a hostile press
on th« morning after had suggested that
Mr. Hearst might be displeased with the

Thirty-nine heavy guns and tea

check any attempted Invasion of Lisbon.
Up. to the present time, however, tbdi

rising in favor of the monarchy.
The encamped forces of the provisional
government have delegated two hun
dred soldiers and armed civilians to po
lice duty in guarding public and other 1
buildings, especially the banks of th*
city. All carriages passing; throngn. til*
streets are closely Inspected.
The wearing or carrying of small R»*
publican flags of green and red is cca*
sidered a safe conduct throughout th*
city- Durlnjr the night all shops and;
restaurants in Lisbon are dosed. ,

The attackers then withdrew for &
conference. They soon returned to tha
attack, assailing the heavy doors of tho
monastery with, battering rams. "When

rushed In and searched every nook and
corner of the edifice, but not a friar was
to be found. It Is stirmised that they:
