W Ina Young O'Sulllvan did not omit at overy roll call

H ' It was II o'clock before permanent Chairman
H ',1 White was ready to call the Convention to
u 11 order, oeantor White and all the other friends
mh 1 of Mr. Bryan had had a very pleasant night of
!?2 17 'l celnhrnting in honor of the victor of the
I wt-' ft'i- Nebraska man. The Convention hall was not
1 j'fr one-quarter full. Many of the delegates left
ItWi rilJX Chicago immediately after the nomination of
Hi; C Mr. Bryan. Otheru left this morning. Senator
l-i tW Tillman of bouth Carolina did the courteous
tly; thing when he requested Chairman White to

I j. White's own speech in accepting the place as

Hj I In Hits great hall we witnessed yesterday a
Bj J scene pf unparalleled excitement in time of

H tdfi i f"r the Presidency who was not 'slated' by the
I ' sK' ? Ieaderi, but who, by the simple forte of his
H ' magnificent presence nnd oratory, sh opt this
H BV4 Ooiueiitlnn from its feet. Cheer. It was a
H Hp scene which recalled the old Coliseum In the
H BkI days of Itoman triumphs. The only Incident
M; BM lu history equalling It was when Napoleon
JT BW returned from Klba, and without the
Wy) WMwi nnsi of a musket regained an empire by the
M, y6,j msgoetlsm of his name. This Convention bos
II' tfj umamated a man who has sprung from the

H II iito Africa, and give to the Kast a randldato fur

"Henry Whitney," he said, "the Standard
Oil magnate, who sits yonder In the New York
delegation and does not vote, was the man with
whom Mr. Williams grappled and defeated."
The Hon. William C. Whitney was the New
York delegate of that name who refused to vote,
and when O'Sulllvan flung his charge at the
name of Whitney the Hon. William O. was
swinging through Buffalo In his private car on
his way to New York.
HAnSDKt NAMES M't.CAl.
Then up roie D. W. Marsden of Bedford, La.
This Is the Marsden who is known now as "Cold
water Marsden," the Louisiana Democrat who
unflinchingly drank half a bucket of Lake
Michigan water In a Democratlo National Con--ventlon.
The day before Marsden had tried to
have the two-thtrd rule abrogated, and Senator
Blanchard of Louisiana had thrown him down
by declaring that ho did not represent tho senti
ment of the delegation. Marsden took occa
sion to say that he did represent the State of
Louisiana, and be added :
"I came here as a patriot and not as a poli
tician." and then be flung a scornful glance at
Benator Blanchard, who looks morn like a dano
ing master than a Louisiana politician. Cold
water Marsden continued, and said that he
wanted to nominate for Vice-President an old
stager, a wheel-horse of the party w ho was v. ell
broken to the harness, and who was known
as a thoroughbred. "I refer to John H. McLean
of Ohio." said Marsden, "and he represents the
pivotal State in the fight that Is at hand,"
A very modest and retiring delegate named
Thomas Maloney of Port Angeles, Washington,
then named James Hamilton Lewis for Vice
President. Mr. Maloney did not make any
speech, and nobody seemed to know who Mr.
Delegate J. II. Carrie of North Carolina then
named Judge Walter A. Clark ot that State.
Nobody seemed to know who Clark was either.
TOM JOIIXROR INTRODUCED.
By this time Chairman While had handed
the gavel to Congressman James D. Klchardsnn
of Tennessee. Mr. Itlchardson has presided
during most of the work of tho permanent Con
vention, and ho mado a very good Chairman.
Ho has tried to get order out ot chnns
and endeavored to rule a mob tbnt would
not be ruled. He should be praised, how
ever, for his efforts. Mr. Richardson said
that ho wanted to Introduco " big-hearted,
courageous Tom Johnson of Ohio." When
Mr. Johnson began to speak some of those near
the rostrum believed that ho was about to work
the Bryan ganio on the Convention. That Is, he
wus to make a speech that would tlcklu the an
dlenco and carry off the nomination for Vice
President himself. Thnso who said this of Mr.
Johnson did lilm Injustice. The rabid frootrador
of Ohio said that lie wanted to nominate one of
his old comrades In the Houso of Representatives,
and ho then presented the name of ex-Congressman
George W. FIthlan of Illinois. Hcdeclnrod
that FIthlan was In sntlro accord with tho plat
form adopted In tho Convention. He said that
Mr. FIthlan had not n cent In the wcrld, that ha
was one of tho plain people, and this Presiden
tial race was to be one between money and men.
Mr. Johnson continued:
"I do not believe in freo silver, but I do believe
the Democratic Conrentlon has started a great
revolution for the good of humanity, and there
fore I am with you heartily. I hope to God
you will nominate FIthlan."
The dulcet tones of W. A. Miller of Oregon
where thon heard when he named for Vice
President ex-Gov. Sylvester Pennoyer. Mr.
Miller cried, "Pennoyer will unite the ele
ments. Pennoyer Is the greatest man In the
United States. As election ds approaches the
name of Pennoyer will sweep like wildfire over
the United States."
THE SEWAI I. BOOM BltOUOrlT OCT.
It was then time for the Sewall boom to be
brought out. It was precipitated by William
R. Burke of California, who sa'd some nice
things of Mr. Sewall, but whose short fpeech
was so dull and stupid that there was not a line
in It worth reporting.
Then carao J. p. Shnwnlter of Missouri, who
told the Convention that Joseph C. Sibley of
Pennsylvania was the man who ought to have
the nomination for Vice-President. It was
known from the first utterance of Mr. Showalter
that a great deal of hard work had been done in
the last twenty-four hours for Mr. Slulei. This
labor was to come to naught. National Com
mitteeman Chas. S. Thomas of Colorado
seconded the nomination of Mr. Sewall.
Just as Mr. Thomas left the platform the Chair
manof tbsTexusdelegatloii trotted oat Richard
Park Bland as a candidate for Vice-President.
He merely annouced that the Texas delegation
bad met and were now Instructed to vote for
Mr. Bland. This was but the beginning of the
last chapter of Mr. Bland's hopes.
UTAH RAME1 SENATOR DANIXT.
Next In order came the boom of Senator John
W. Daniel of Virginia. It was brought out by
O. W. Powers of Utah, who declared that " the
Democracy hs parted the clouds and we now
behold a silver lining." Mr. Powers went on to
tell how the people's noses had been kept to the
grindstone of distress, and ho added that tho
man who was to lift the noses of tho people from
this uncomfortable and distressing position was
"that peerless orator, that purest statesman, tho
Hon. John W. Daniel of Virginia." The boom of
Senator Daniel was short-lived. The Chairman
of the Virginia delegation, w hose name Is W. J.
Jones. Informed tho Convention that, while the
Old Dominion appreciated the compliment that
had been paid to Mr. Daniel, the Senator had
given instructions that under no circumstances
was his name to be presented as a candidate for
Vice-President. Mr. Daniel's boom, short-lived
as It was, received more genuine applnuse than
any Vlce-Presldentlal boom that was trotted
out during the day.
Free P. Morris of Illinois then gave a lift to
the Sibley boom by seconding Sibley's nomina
tion. Next came the boom of John R. McLean
of Ohio. It was presented to the Convention by
Ulrlo Sloan, who has spoken for the delegation
and who has reiterated a score of times since
Tuesday last that "Mr. McLean mado this Con
1-ITHIAN STEAK FOR SIB LET.
By this time ex-Congressman George W. FIth
lan believed that he should withdraw his natno
aa a candidate, and so he got upon tho platform
and told of his undying gratitude for the honor
that had been extended tn him, but that he
wished to alto second the nomination of Mr.
blhley. In doing this Mr. I'lthlan raid:
"Many people Insist that Hlbloy should not bo
nominated here because In the Hntite of Repre
sentatives ho UDcd vory severe language toward
tho President of the United States. I can only
recall to jou that this Convention, by a two
thirds vote, refused to endorse the resolution of
Senntor Hill commending President Clevoland
for his tourage, honesty, and Integrity, There
fore, this Convention should not crltlclso any
thing that Joe Sibley said In the Fifty-third
It was learned lator In the day that the reason
why Mr. FIthlan withdrew his name as a candi
date for Vice-President v. as because Gov. Alt
geld refused to give him the support of the
united Illinois delegation.
NEW JEU8ET AND NEW VOIIK HAVE NO CANDI
DATES. Then came the scene hich has been repeated
over and over again lu this Convention. Allan
McDermott. speaking for New Jersey, paid that
his btate had no condldnte to prrscnt and that
the Slato would decline to vote for candi
dates. The reoord of New Jerrey as a hard
money State has not been disputed. Its
record Is a little cracked, however, for
the reason that on Friday, on several ballots,
two of the delegates Insisted upon voting for
ex-Gov. Paulson of Pennsvlv aula when all of
the hard-money States had declined to present
candidates or to vote for the candidates of the
Convention, uf course Pennsylvania must be
excepted, but the rxieptlon was the result of
the conduct of Mr, Pattlson himself in refusing
to withdraw as a candidate.
New York kept its record bright and shining
whon ex-Gov, Flower arose and said that New
York had no candidates to present, and would
dsclloe to Tots In tho Convention. This an-
nouncement was again greeted with noisy
cheers. Interspersed with hisses.
MAINE STEAK FOR SEW AM
Mr. John Scott of Bath, Me., spoke In praise of
Mr. Arthur Sewall of Maine as one of thelesd
Ing business men ot New England and as Presi
dent of a national bank; as a man whose ships
spread their white wings to the winds of overy
ocean and carried the American flag to
the uttermost parts of the earth. He
could not promise that the delegation from
Maine would be behind Mr. Sow all's nomi
nation, but he could promise that next
November Mr. Sownll would have the Democ
racy of Maine behind him. Cheers. "Wreathe,"
he said, " with the sunflower of Nebraska, the
pine flower of Maine, and next November those
flowers entwined will prove more threatening
to the little Napoleon of Ohio than the tread of
the marching Prussians proved to the great
Napoleon at Waterloo." Cheers.
the iiamtino nrnt.is.
There was no nomination on the first ballot
George Fred Williams touched high-watermark
when he got 70 votes. Mr. Sibley led the ballot
with 103. Then came Mr. MoLean with 111,
and then followed poor old Bland with 100.
There were 258 delegates present who refused
Neither was there a nomination on the second
ballot. It was on this ballot, though, that Mr.
Komtnee or the Chicago Convention for Mce President.
Bland cot his h'ghest vnto. Alnbamo, Arkan- I
sos. California, Florida. Genrg a. Idaho, Kan-
sas. Montana, Nevada. Tenncpsrc, Texas, I'tnh, '
Virginia, Wnt Virginia, nnd the Territories of
New Mexico. Oklahoma, and Indian Territory
voted solid) for him.
Gov. Stone. speaUng for Missouri, slid that
the delegates had received no authority to vote
for Mr. Bland for second place, and that If Mr.
Bland was nominated In this Convention it
must be dono by the delegates on their own
volition. Tho vote of Missouri was divided be
tween a number of tho candidates. On thai bal
lot the statesman from Ded ham d ropped dow n 1 0
votes. Mr. McLean was advanced to 1,18, and Mr.
Sewall. who ren-lved 100 votes on the first bal
lot, dropped to 1 117. Slblej nf Pennsvlvanla fell
to I in. and Pattlson of Pennsylvania lost 1 vote.
He got 2 votes on the first ballot and 1 on tho
Just before the third ballot was beenn Con
grcssman Amos J, Cummlngs appeared on tho
platform and read a telecrnm from Mr. Sibley
saying. "Please do not allow my name to be
presented. I so Instructed tar friends yester
day." It was on this ballot that Gov. Stone decided
to cast the solid thlrt -four votes nf Missouri
for Wand. This was acceplod as evidence that
Mr. Bland would take second place. New Jer
sey again declined to vote and so did New York,
and when Mr. Flower mado this announcem"nt
tho cheers and h!sis broke loose again. This
lid a Minnesota delegate t" roar at Chairman
Rlchardeon " This Convention has been dis
turbed by this mob long enough, and I hooo
the assistant frorgeant-at-Arm" will be Instruct
ed to keep this Infernal mnb quiet."
There was no nomination on tho third ballot.
Mr. McLean ran his strength up to HO. Mr.
Sewall's vote was 07, and, notwithstanding the
solid voto of Missouri. Mr. Bland fell to SB.
Necessary to a choice 50, with 535 delegate
OOV. BTO"B WITHDRAWS BLAND.
It was on the fourth ballot that Gov. Stone
decided to withdraw Mr Bland from the race.
Ho appeared on the platform and said that on
behalf of tho State of Missouri and the friends
of Mr. Bland hu wished to express hi" grateful
appreciation of the kindness shown toMr. Illand.
Gov. btono then declnrcd that ho was In re
ceipt of a telegram from Mr. Bland which de
clared substantially that It would be unwise
and Impolitic to nominate the two candidate: of
this Convention from the West. Gov. Stone
said that Mr. Bland had expressed his
warmest and heartiest approval of Mr.
Bryan's nomination, but that ho directed his
name to be withdrawn for Vice-President. Tho
flocking over to Sewall began right there. Yet
John It. MoLean's friends put up a first-class
fight for him. So energetlcand indnttrlous and
capable were the lieutenants of Mr. McLean
that his vote on the fourth ballot was run up to
yoil. Mr. Sewall's vote woe Increased to 501.
Missouri rastltssolld vote forSewall. When Illi
nois was reached the 48 votes of the State were
thrown to McLeuu. Kx-Congressman FIthlan
challenged tho vote, hut Gov. Altgeld had his
delegation well In hand, and from the Instant
that he roared out "McLean." the vast ma
jority In the di ligation followed him, and under
the unit rulo McLean got the solid voto of tho
M CLEAN WITnnitAWN.
It was apparent to those who were watching
events that tho McLean boom was soon to be
exploded, and nobody saw this quicker than
Ulrlc Moan, who has acted as Chairman of the
Ohio delegation. Before tho ilfth ballot
was started Sloan rushed to tbe plat
form and mid that he had received
two telegrams from Mr. McLean, one
of which saldi "Any voto cast for me for
Vico-Prebldcnt Is ngainst my express wish,"
Mr, Sloan raid tu.it iwhnt Mr. McLean sajs,
but It Is not what tho Ohio allegation mis.
Tbu ballot wus quirkl) started, and Georgia
deserted McLean fur Sew all, urul so did Indiana,
Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, and Mlunevota.
From tit moment It was all up with the MoLean
boom. New Jereey and New York continued to
decline to vote to the last. When Ohio was
reached Sloan declared that notwithstanding the
telegram received from McLean, the delegation
with Its forty-six votes would still stick to
him. So did the District of Columbia. Mr.
McLean lives In Washington mosj of the) ear,
and he Is very Influential lu thu'affalr of the
city of magnificent distances.
Bewail was far In the lead, and Gov. Altgeld
decided to change Illinois from MoLoan to
Sewall. That vote practically nominated Mr.
Sewall, and Ohio then formally withdrew Mc
Lean and came out for Sewall. Mississippi did
the tame, and then Nebraska, Bryan' State,
fell Into line for Sewall.
On all four ballots Nebraska had asked to be
excused from voting. The delegate from
Bryan' SUM did not wish to appear to take a
hand In the fleht for Vice-President. The
Chairman of the Iowa delegation then moved
to make Sewall's nomination nnanlmous. and
this was done. There were very few cheer
over Mr. Sewall' nomination.
The delegates carried the standards of thedlf.
ferent States, and gathered around the standard
of Maine, but, remarkable as it may seem,
they did this without uttering a oheer.
But the delegates and all hands were
Insufferably tired and worn out. nnd possibly
that Is why there was so little enthusiasm
over tbe selection of Mr. Sowall to be running
mate for Mr. Br) an on this Presidential ticket.
Had It notbeen for tho letter of Mr. Bland. Mr.
Sewall would not have recehed this nomina
tion. It Is also vory well understood that had
it not been for the letter of Mr. Bland Mr, Mo
Lean would have undoubtedly captured the
nomination for Vice-President.
At no time during the Convention did the fol
lowing Vlco Presidential booms have moro than
breath of life: Lewis of Washington, Clam of
North Carolina, Boles of Iowa, Williams of Illi
nois, nnd Blackburn of Kentucky. It is true that
tho name of Boles was formally withdrawn, but
even If It hnd not been, Mr, Boles could
not have captured the nomination. The vote
fur Mr. Harrlty of Pennsylvania was Intended
as a personal compliment, in view of his services
as Chairman for the last four years of the Dem
ocratlo Notional Committee.
Tho Convontlnn adjournrd without finding
out who James Hamilton Lewis of Washington
Is. and nobody knows yet. At lost account
thero was a search party sent out In the hops
of ascertaining something about this distin
guished statesman from Washington.

dates for tbe nomination of Vice-President to

tional politics, and this could bo duno by pre
senting to tbe ptnplo the nnimi of some great
Southern man, such ns Daniel or Blackburn.
Senators Monoy, Jones, Harris, Chilton, a-id
others took the ground Unit tho cause of free
Bllver was dearer to the people of tho South
than the personal advantnment of any of her
sous, nnd thov did not wnnt to tsko ony chance
in naming a Southern man, which might ex
cite prejudice to the injury of tho ticket.
After this expression uf opinion tho Ohio
trouble came up. Several members of tho
committee oulogteed Mr. McLean for tho wo rk
that ho had dono In tho present rampulgn,
especially In lelntion to tho rnutt'it in Ken
tucky, In whlJh Senator llin-kburn routed
tho combined forces of tho Administration
and the gold men, and which. It was doclared
by Ills friends In the tonferenre, was tho
turning point In tho silver fight and made
the present Co'ivontlon a possibility.
For more than an hour Mr. MoLean' cn
dUai.) was discussed, his personal character
Investigated, and the course of his news
paper toward politics for th( lout thirty years
or mora was gone over. Ills friends were
warm in his praise, but It also developed
that he had several bitter enmles. Gov.
Stone, Gov. Altgeld. and r-enator Tlllmsn all
aid that had not the Convention adjnurmd
when Itdld McUun would huve boen nom
nated, and Ills enemies : must show good
cause why such action should not now be
taken. 'Ihe various rumors that had floated
around In the corridors and lu tho Convention
during tbe evening were dls ussrd with spirit.
Herlsh Wllklns of Washington, and Mr.
MtCnnnvilte, a delegnte from Ohio, asked to
be Leard in Mr. Moi.ean's rxhalf, Mr. Wll
klnsmadea wnrmjtofence of Mr, MoLean, eulo
gized hi devotion t the Democratlo parly,
and announced a untrue and false the va
rious rumors t the effect that he had at env
time been lukewarm In Its support, or that
ho had In nny way betra)ed Its lntorest. , Dur
ing tho time that Mr. Wllklns was talking,
Mr. Allen Tjurman, a district delegate, also
from Ohio, appeared in conference. A run
ning fire of questions between various mem
bers, lnoludl'ig Mr. Thurman and Mr. Wll
klns. ncurreil. and the fact was shown that
the Ohio dtlegatlon was seriously divided In
tho support of Mr. McLean,
Mr, Thurman said that he had entered Into
n personal a-troemunt sluco his coming to Cht
otgo wltn Air. McLean that the Ohio delega
tion should support McLoan for President
with a united front, nnd that. In case of fail
ure, Mr, McLean should not be a candidate
for Vlco-Prcsldent, hut that ho (McLean)
should throw his strength and Influence to tho
support ot Thurman, it wns vory strange. In
Iowof these facts, Mr. Thurman said, that
horo wore two men presenting the claims of
MrLe.n before tho ennferemefor the Vice
Preslilentlol nomination, Such action, he
said, did not savor of sincerity and fairness.
Tho present harmony In Ohio, Mr. Thur
man said, had been brought about by uniting
tho McLean and Thurman factions which
had lieon ntodds for vcars, but for doing this,
even for the cuuso nf sliver, his notion baa sub-Jecti-il
him to cnnnldarnbln criticism from the
frlinds of his father. .Sow thit Mr. MaLcan
hnd soan tit within a half hour to repudiate the
agreement mado with him ai to tho Vlco
Prosidentinl nomination, Mr. Thurman noti
fied tho conference that all the old (tores of tho
Past would ho reopened nnd the bitterness
between the factions. Instead nf bolng dimin
ished, would bo liirrcnsrsl. Ho conld not sub
mit to tho nomination nf McLoan, In view of tho
facta he had pre-entnd, and ho thought that tho
:nntnreiird wonld heslmtc before It thrust upon
his Stata n cahdldato uuat ceptuble to It.
Mr. 'lhurmau Mild ha ngrotlcd that a mat
tor of auch n personal character should be
forced to Uio front to tho detriment uf a great
rnuse, but he felt Justified in view of all the
circumstances surrounding tho case, iloth
Jlr. McConnvllle and Mr. Wllklns replied In
a spirited manner to Mr.Thuriuati, McConn
vlllo statlbg tbnt McLean was tho most pop
ular Democrat in tho State nf Ohio and her
choice fur President, and. falling in that, for
Vlco President. Whether Mr. McLean was
a candidate he did not know, hut Ohio had
the right to ask his nomination, lrrescr,tivo
of his deslros. Ho declared that Mr. MoLean
inuld carry the State, dosplto Mr. Thurman'
assertions to the contrary, an I McLean, not
Thurmun. was tho lender looked up to.
Aftir the Ohio Incident tho State of Indiana
was reached and tho claims of Mr. Matthews
nnd Mr. Shlulej wero dlscLsscd. It was
said that Mr. Matthews did not doslro tho
nomination lor Viie-Proslilent. Mr. Shlvtlcy
wui In tho city, nnd It wai sulci In the confer
ence that he nlcn did not dt slut the nomina
tion In view -it tho fnct that it would roqiltio
srme nnn tlso tn ho siihstltiltcl In his place to
lieiui tho I'idlanK Statu tlcko'. In spite of
tnlw, however, Mr. Shlvnloj's name was ro
ouived with meat favor.
Gov. Altgeld discussed the availability of
Messrs. Lmld anil Williams nf Illinois, nnd
said that both were excellent men nnd would
have, he believed, t.in united support nf the
Illinois Democracy. Mr. Illnnd's name was in
rldrnt.illv mentioned by Gov. Stone, not as a
eatidtclalc for Vice President, but ns a pos
xlhllity who might be forced tn aciopt. Tho
fact that Nebraska and Missouri were so close
torn titer tccu-ud to operate against this sug
gestion. Iho claims of Mr. Sibley of Pennsylvania
wore dic ussed at considerable length, some
of 'ho Wi stern member saving that Mr.

Af'or general discussion bad gone on this
way for tlto hours the general opinion frcmed
to ho tint tho Hindi tato for Vlcc-I'rnsl-de'it
should bo taken from the States of Ohio,

Marsden of Louisiana showed up again to
day. Marsden is the man who has been mak

The member of the New York deleirntlon

men who are left In town now are the membora fici
of tbe Oregon delegation who came here with firS
the boom for Sylvester Pennoyer. ex-Governor of sU
Oregon and now the Mayor of the city of Port- fjB
land. This delegation thought that Pennoyer' jE
record as a denouncer of the existing condition &
of things would make blm solid with Altgeld, '
Tillman, and the other Annrchlst bosse. But It ilii
didn't, and although Pennoyer was named fsHS
for both President and Vice-President, he never fiHf
cot more than eight vote for either office, and vmt
tleose ettht were cast by the delegates from his nfflfi
btate. this was In spite of the fact that more SSg
than flft) delegates had personally promised JBMS
the Oregon man's boomers thnt they would vote mm
for him. Hre!

men are those from North Carolina. They BEEi
