Theodore Roose velt was nominated for Oovernor by the He i r publican State Convention to-night by a vote of 753 to '218 received by Gov. Frank 8. Blaok for renomination. Former County Judge J. rp. Rider Cady of Hudson, who had put Gov. .Blaok in nomination. Immediately moved to :.Y" make the nomination of Col. Roosevelt unani mous, and Senator Hobart Krum of Sohoharie. who has been one of Gov. lilack'a chief ad visers and spokesmen, assured the convention ot entire harmony in the party when he fol lowed Judge Cady with this speech : B" On behalf of Gov. Frank B. Blaok and on behalf of every delegate who voted tor him in V this convention. I say they will stand by the nomination of Col. Roosevelt a Col. Roosevelt has stood by the country. We will not be in the reserve forces, bat wo. will be at the front and we will stand shoulder to shoulder with the best of yon and push Col. Theodore Roosevelt s. Into the Executive ohalr by a tremendous ma jority. More than that, we will take the Execu tive chair for Col. Roosevelt as he took as a rough rider the height of San Joan." There was tremendous cheering at this, and the nomination of Col. Roosevelt was made unanimous with thunderous applause. Gov. Blaok received 20 votes out of the 188 from the borough of Manhattan and 38 votes out of the 132 from the borough of Brooklyn. I The vote In New York for Blaok was as follows: Twentieth district. 3; Twenty-first. 8; Twenty-seventh, 3; Twenty-ninth. 3. and Thlrty- fifth. 9. The vote in Kings for Black was as fol lows: First district, 4: Second. 2; Fifth. 1; tf Bixth. 5; Eighth. 1; Ninth. 3; Eleventh. 7; Twelfth. 6; Thirteenth. 1; Fifteenth. 3. and Seventeenth. 5. (, After the unanimous nomination of Col. Roosevelt the convention adjourned for a night session. The convention had been in session since 3 o'clock in the afternoon. It was a little I before 8 o'olock when Col. Roosevelt was nomi nated. The convention was pretty well tired out. It had listened to some mighty good speeches and had heard an exhaustive state ment from Elihu Root as to tbs eligi bility and availability ot Col. Roosevelt , as a candidate tor Governor. Edward Lautorbaeh replied to this, snd before the rollcall on the nomination was had It was plain that there was to be no trouble in the Re publican party, and that the folks who had fol lowed Gov. Black, and had said many sharp things during the controversy, had no inten tion of remaining out, but would be. as always. useful and valuable members of the Republi can party. IMOKSisa m-.vnov. Convention Hall Packed to Overflowing Temporary Organisation. Saratoga. Sept 27. Everybody who could walk or ride or be carried turned out to attend the first session of the Republican State Con vention to-day. Never was there a brighter day. Never were so many ladles present at a 's btats Convention. Republican or Democratic. The Convention Hall Is one of the best in the United States. It Is large enough even to accommodate a national conven tion. It wax pricked to the ceiling long before the delegates began to arrive. The It usual decorations of bunting, flowers and pic W . tures were seen. There was a large painting L i of Gov. Black on the platform, but no picture f Col. Roosevelt was wen until the delegates B from New York county began to arrive. The B first comers brought in a banner bearing the Hi picture of Oil. Roosevelt In his uniform as a H,V rough rider in the volunteer service ot the United Status. Before the arrival of this banner the band H1 bad played all tbo patriotic airs thst anybody H, had heard for the last fifty years. Th large ";, audlenoe was an exceedingly patrlotio oae. H When the band played "The Star-Spangled I ' Banner" the great audience rose to its feet. Hi When Col. Roosevelt's banner was brought in , the band played "The Battle Cry of Freedom" I - and switched to "Tramp. Tramp. Tramp, the Boys are Marching." The audlenoe burst Into roaring cheers and the ladles wsvsd American I .i Bags and ths blood tingled. It should be remarked that while this first aession of the oonveutlon was exceedingly I' patrlotio as to the sentiment that bora upon B tha national scenes of the lssttewmonths.it Ti ' was exceptionally cold In its reception ot lead ing Republicans. For the last dosen years or roor Republican Buns convention have gone I i wild when their leaders have entered the con vention hall. It was not so to-day. When Sen ator Matt came In. just before noon, he received a joyous wloom. When Lieut -Gov. Woodruff etarted down ths aisle to hie seat he. too. sot a flrst-rat re ception. The same can ie said of Dr. Depew, Chairman Odell. Superintendent Aldridge. V 1'resident (Juigg of ths New York County (.'one '.' tultlee, and Edward Lautorbaeh. but it was re- marked by old visitors to 'State convention , that the tumultuous cheers of other days ware f missing. Inquiries elioited statements to the ! effect that the audience was not keyed up to cheers, but rather was expectant tor a fight, believing that there was to be a great rumpus between the followers of Gov. Black snd the Republicans who desire the nomination nf Col. Roosevelt. There was not the HgMet evi dence of a battle this morning. In fact there was no opportunity for one. Still the Ameri can public are usually two or three hours ahead ot lime where a row is on hand. Super intendent I'ayn came In while the Rev. M. Deloe Jump of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Saratoga was exhorting Divine Providence to protect and guide the convention. THE CONVENTION CALLED TO 0BDBB. Chairman Odeli banged to the convention to come to order a few minutes afternoon. Be side him were the men who were to be the Secretaries of the body and record Its doings for the benefit of future generation of Repub licans. They were John H. Kenyon, Reuben L. Fox. Charles A. Ball and Lafayette B. Gleason. When quiet came Chairman Odell merely an nounced that Mr. Jump would open the con vention with prayer, tind he asked for order so that Mr. Jump might he heard. Dr. Jump in his prayer said: Out of the ennarinuaueea ofour need WB romr to The In prayer to-day. We pray that all our works mai be Is ami ami carried forward and ended In Thee and aeeor ing to that perfect and bleaaed will. We thank Thee for the new Itiatru whlrh h.a been added to the American nation in Iheao later daya liy the great atateamanahip of our leadera and by the ap'.endid valor of our e 1 Hera and sailors on laud and ee. Itle.s the President of these United fltntea : give Inn and hla counsellors great wladoni In the difficult and delicate tasks Imposed noon thrni. We come to ask Thy Messina upon the chief inagiritriite of tbia Rtato today, upon all who are associated with him in authority: upon our legislator, that they mar enact wiae laws, snd we pray thst they will j-lve to us all the apirlt of a true cttUenah p to keep in violate the laws that are enacted. By direction of Chnirman Odell. Co). Konyon began the roll call of the convention i y As sembly districts. A substitute vrvi named for ex-flavor William L. Strong of New York city, who alt along has declared that he would come here and vote for Black. His substitute is to vote for Roosevelt. When the Tioga delegation was reached. Senator Piatt arose to make a substitution Howard A. Mead for William A. Smythe, who was called home to Owego this morning by the death of his father, one of the best known Re publicans in the southern tier. Senator Piatt received another kind greeting. When the roll call was completed Chairman Odell an nounced that bv the direction of the State Committee Representative Serena E. Payne of Auburn had been selected to be temporary Chairman of the convention. Chairman Odell named two of Mr. Payne's associates In the House of Representatives at Washing ton to escort him to the platform, .fumes S. Sherman of Oneida and Israel Flscherot Kings. Representative Payne delivered his speech in good style, and It was well received all the wny through, many passages licit c greeted with applause. When he referred to the bravery of the rough riders Instantly the Roosevelt ban ner was shot into the air and the cheers as cended, the band played, and everybody seemed to be happy. There was not even a smug look on the faces of the men who followed the for tunes of Gov. Black. I'OMIREHS.MAN PAYNE'S SPEECH. Mr. Payne recounted the recent triumphs of the Republican party, culminating in the elec tion ot William MoKinley as President, and then ssld: " Two yearn of hi administration have passed Into history, snd we are soon to fae another election. Now our friends, the one . tell us that they have lost all intern' in national affairs. They propose to make. am palgn upon State issues solely. They evidently fear to face the people on their national record. Having no recent record on State affairs, they are willing to go before the people on that Is sue. The Democratic party Is never so happy as when It can escape looking Into its own past. We will meet them on State issues if they de sire. We shirk no responsibility. If mistakes have been msde a Republican Executive will be swilt to correct them. But we wiil not per mit these matters to overshadow the para mount national questions that are before us. They say there are no national Issues. No na tional Issues ! Why. we are to electa United States Senator and thirty-four Representa tives in Congress, who will deal with questions as Important as any that ever received the at tention of the national Congress I" He then referred to the prosperity which has followed the election of McKlnley. saying: "We have emerged from the darkness and gloom of the Democratic night Into the bright sunrise of Republican prosperity. Our Demo cratic friends say that Providence is responsi ble for this. You will observe, however, that Providence and the supremacy and power of the Republican party have always moved simul taneously along the same lines." He then re ferred to the war and the Issues growing out of it. and in conclusion said: "The question before the people is simply this: 'Is William McKlnley to stand alone at one end of the avenue with a hostile House and a hostile Senate at the other, or are we to stay up the arms ot that brave, gallant, wise, patri otic President, and give him at the other and of the avenue not only a House of Represen tatives, but a Senate that will help him to solve these problems?' This can't be done, gentle men, by losing a Senator here and an Assem blyman there In the Htato of New Y'ork.. We must see to It that our Democratic Senator retires to the shades ol Troy: that he no longer occupies. seat in the United States Senate. We must have a Republican in his place. We must have u Republican House. We must see to it thst we have a Republican Executive In the Empire State. We must stand by the Administration In these perilous times that are to come, guar anteeing to these islands a stable, just and equitable Government that will give to Cuba a place among the nations of the earth and give to Porto Rico a chance beneath the American flag to march up toward American civilization and become a part of the American people." COMMUTES NAMED EXCESS. The naming of the various committees brought to their feet in turn a bunch of young Republicans like William Barnes. Jr.. of Al bany. Speaker James M. E. O'Urady of Roches ter, Representative Lemuel E. Ouigg ot New Y'ork. and ex-Speaker Hamilton Fish of Put nam, snd they all were mighty well received by the convention. When Gen. Stewart L. Woodford arose to moveforthe appointment of a Commltteeon Resolutions he was greeted with such resound ing cheers thst the band turned in and played "Yankee Doodle Dandy." Chairman Odell named the committee, and ex-Senator J. Sloat Fassett of Chemung was on his feet. He was greeted with hearty cheers, and moved a recess of the Convention until 3:30 P. M. The motion was carried. AMHtNUOX MKH.HIOX. Senator White Mad Fermaneat Chairman toovlt Nominated-The Platform. Sabatooa. Sept. 27. No convention of the Republican party In the State of New York has been so jammed with visitor as the ses sion this afternoon. The galleries ware packed to the windows and the floor of th convention hall waa choked to the doors. There wore two lively and vociferous bands, snd the ladies in the galleries. In the colors of the gowns and bonnets, looked like so many batches of tulip bads. The convention woke up in the after noon. There was enthusiasm for everybody. Even th statement of the Chairman of th Committee on Credentials, that the Republican arty was so harmonious in the Bute that the oaxuio.lt tee had no contests to settle, was obeexsd. Everything and everybody wo cherd. Tha Hon. Hamilton Fish icported that the Commlttes on Permanent Organization had recommended the selection of Senator Horace White of Syracuse for permanent Chairman. and two of Senator White' colleague in the Sonata at Albany were requested to escort him to tile platform. Ths escort was Senator Ho bart Krum of Schoharie nnd Senator Nevada N. Stranahan of Oswego. Th young statesman from Syracuse reeelvo.l a great welcome. He Is a fine-looking fellow. He has been spoken of at Albany as the dude Senator. He acted to-day as If he was a xnod deal of a dude, the samp as Col. Theodr.e Roosevelt a dude with a lot of brains and determination and astotes manllke way of telling the vast audience what he had to say. Senator White's utterances stirred the audience from ths first moment. They brought out all of the fine national and patriotic feeling that was In that gathering of nearly 4.000 persons. Senator White was cheered from the beginning of his speech to Its end. His speech In every war was the equal nf that delivered In the lost few preced ing years by other young Republican states men, and It will long be remembered. He said : CHAIRMAN WHITE'S SPEECH. "We are assembled here to promote the true ends of government. The Republican party, a sure Instrument for that purpose, now turns from the conduct of u successful war to the sober consideration of ulvlc ulTnlrs. The annals of Its life abound in durable achievements. Created bv Lincoln at an ominous time, reared by Seward. Orant. and Illaiue, with the aid of a mighty iieople, its maturity sees the unwilling nations of Europe recognise the United States as a foremost power. "The Republican party's first mission ended when Iron chain fell forever from the limbs of the innocent on this continent. Its next duty was completed with the reconstruction of the Union. Its thin task was finished when educa tion came within the grasp of all mankind: when nn opportunity to earn by honest toll financial independence was no longer the priv ilege of the few, but the birthright of the many: when the suffrage, surrounded by am ple safeguards, parsed us heritage to each American citizen: when material wealth and commerclnl prosperity, freed from Inflation. teemed throughout the land. Its latest charge was heroically performed and the cause of hu manity Immeasurably advanced when despot ism and cruelty were suppressed Inthe Antilles and when the rule of Spain was driven perma nently from the sight of our fostering shores. " In a word, such Is the history nnd such are the deeds of the Republican party. In the Held of national affairs not alone hns it guided the Government with wisdom. energy, niidsklll.for its management of the vast interests of the State since the fall of the Democracy has been characterised by an enlightened force, bv a fnr sighted statesmanship, which have turned n backward period Into an era of development and progress. Until the leturnof Republican Ism. New York was fast losing gtound among the States of the Union not in wealth, not in trade, not In population, for these were reasonably secure, but in the care of thp suffrage, which had long been neglected : In the conduct of the primary elections, which had been utterly ignored: in the regulation ot tho liquor traffic, which hud been prostituted to partisan purposes: In the character of the judiciary, which had been flngrantly de bauched: in the dignity of law and order, which had been outraged by the theft of the Legislature. While our sister States attained lehor levels. New York, under Democratic ri le, wallowed In stagnation and wrong. The Democratic iarty has little claim upon the confidence and good will of the people of the State. It has obstructed every great re form; it tia denounced trusts, yet connived at their enrichment: it hnsw.th ridiculous hypoc risy attacked corporations and declared Its friendship for the laboring man. and yet it la to-day. and long has been, subservient to the domination of corporate power. Its devotion to the wage enrner Is exhausted by harangues in the halls of legislative bodies nnd by utter ances for political effect. It has violated the spirit of the charter of New Y'ork by the ap IKjintment of the notorious Devery; it has st niggled against a pure ballot: it has sneered at the honest caucus law: it has fought to re tain the saloon in politics: it has upheld the ad vocate of a debased currency and of national repudiation. Under its present leadership It is insincere to the core, and seeks spoils and in dividual gain. ...... " Who arc these men In control of the Demo cratic party, who assail the Republican party nnd its representatives, and who seek to imperii the safety of the nation and State by the over throw of the Republican party at this critical time? First and foremost we find Mr. Croker of New York, graphically described by Mr. -Nolan of Rochester as "the whole thing.' and Nolan ought to know. Where was Mr. Croker when pntriotle men. regardless of party ties, were buttling with Bryanlsin. with Altgoldism, and with Anarchistic doctrines, or when, for humanity's sake, th nation last April rushed to arms? Was he running his horses snd aping the Prince In old England, or was he basking amid the homage of numerous little ohiettains at Lnkewood or Saratoga' " Then there is Mr. Hill of Albany, whom his former pohtioal friends mournfully picture as Y'lctor Hugo pictured Napoleon, 'Mighty eoiiiiiiimbulist of a vanished dream.' but who In plain language might be termed a 'has been.' Where was he during these epochs? Was he hanging around, issuing prolonged in terviews, or wa he in solitary state roosting at Wolfert's Roost ? "Next we meet Mr. Murphy of Troy, the apostle of clean elections. Where was he all this time ? Does anybody know ? Suffice it to say that only last winter he cast his vote In the Senate for free silver and for a 40-rent dollar, after the electors of the State had declared their will in favor of sound money by upward of 800.000 majority. "What Is there ln'the lives or characters of these men to lead the people to believe that they would make fewer mistakes, would be more conscientious, would be more patriotic. than than those whom they traduce. If they or their proteges were Intrusted with the reins ot government? We need have no fear. An abiding faith may lead us on. safe In the ma ture judgment of the people." Speaking of the war and its results, he said: "The United States emerges from the war with Spain strengthened, magnanimous, tri umphant. The Republican party Is conducting this conflict with that surpassing ability which has characterized its efforts in every emer gency In it history. President McKlnley has exhibited throughout the entire ordeal the qualities of a great man. Aware of the horrors and responsibilities of war, with patient, forti tude, with moral courage, ho exhausted every menus to allay the popular Indignation, to avo 1 an appeal to arms. When peace waa no longer possible fores was employed with incomparable results. In the midst of the struggle in the line of his duties, while some men in high places sulked, while others preached doctrines fatal to the successful con duct of the war, while others voted for ruinous heresies, let It never be forgotten that in this crisis there came to the aid of the Administra tion, in full measure, the sterling talents and immense Influence of the Republican Senator from New York. " The amazing rapidity and force with which our navy and army initiated and maintained effective operations, including brilliant vic tories and an adequate blockade, the unrivalled skill and heroic valor with which our soldiers and seamen carried forward this righteous cause, have been at once the admiration and wonder of the civilised world. Illustrious as were the deeds of Drake, of Van Trump, ot Nelson, of Paul Jones, of Farragut, th su preme award in naval combat may be accorded to Dewey at Manila and to the American squadron at Santiago. The greatness of the United States In war. as In peace, Is established for generations to come. As In Webster's Impressive llgureof the British drum beat, th" Stars and Stripes now encircle the earth, 'following the sun and keep ing company with the hours. The splendor and fruit of conquest are attended by grave trials and responsibilities. Problems and policies of far-reaching Importance must be promptly met and affirmatively determined. The wis dom and the energy which have so successively guided our destiny In the past may be safely felled upon In tho future. We have outgrown ormer conditions. We must prepare for sub sequent event. The career of this republic cannot be confined to this continent. It is not looking in territorial space, it is not wanting In abundant resources, it Is naturally endowed for the development of a great and free people, but the sturdy enterprise, the restless energy of the Americans, are now alive to the opportunities beyond the seas. A carrying trade auch as can be acquired, a commercial intercourse which will surely follow, our distant possessions al ready obtained, a canal in Nicaragua, our vast line of unprotected coast, all mean a formidable armament. This is sure to come. Let us strive for it powerful growth. Wo have had a significant warning. An ex tensive navy will require coaling sta tions, harbor, strategic points. Snipping snd commercial Interests will lead our people far and wide over the globe. The die Is caat. It Is not bred In the American people to shrink from possible dangers, to neglect glowing op portunities, or to forsake the lofty humani tarian principles for which the war was waged by abandoning the unfortunate people of the islands to anarchy. Alaska. Hawaii, the Philippine, th West Indie, all stretch forth their arm, appealing to us for protection and civilization, offering to the United States new markets for Its wares and products, fresh chan nels for Its labor and trade, and with it all an Inspiring and imperial future." SENATOR WHITE'S SPEECH OHEEBED. Senator White's references to Gov. Black were received with oheers. When he men tioned President MeKinley's name, there was another uproar. When he referred to "ths United States Republican Senator from New Pot Your Fnrnao la Order Sow! Before lha ruahl Cbeapar. quicker. Bast work. Low nn... Mmuuda Fur.: Co., so ells, street. VelepAtisv. 43. York," there was another burst ot applause. 1 Th names of Dewey, Hobson, Miles and Wheeler, and the mention of their deeds I greatly stirred the audience. Whon Senator ; White snoko of the " Immortal heroism of the rough riders," the convention broke loose entirely, rose as ouo man and one woman, waved hats and handkerchiefs, chairs and canes, and the two bands In unison broke out with "The Star Spangled Banner." Benator White was Interrupted nearly four minutes by this outburst. The spereh was a red, white and blue affair from beginning to end. and It wo just what that audience liked. When it was ended, it was made known t lint Clen. Stewart L. Woodford. Chairman of the Committee on Resolutions, had been delayed somewhat In framing tho platform, and Per manent Chairman White announced that the convention would bo In reeoss until Gen. Woodford arrived. President (Juigg ot tho New Y'ork County Committee demurred to this nnd offered a reso lution that the convention proceed at once to nominations. Tho delegates accepted Presi dent Qulgg'srosolul Ion amid a volley of cheers, and former Judge J. Rider Cudy ol Hudson. who named Gov. Black in the convention in this village two years ago. mounted the plat form and began a similar task for the Governor this year. All of Gov. Black's friends in the convention shouted with joy over Judge Caily's high eulogy ot tho Governor, and Judge Cudy wa frequently Interrupted in his speech. n In. K CADY NOMINATES BLACK. "Mn. Chairman and Gentlemen: Two years ago, upon this platform mid in the presence of the resi onsilile und accredited -epreHontntlves of the Republican party. I presented the name of Frank S. Black ns a candidate for Governor. To-day I do so again, in firm assurance that no other name can be put before you that will more thoroughly command your confldnnoe ami respect. Then he was named us from Rensselaer. To-day I name him as of New Y'ork. Then he stood for a county. To-day he stands for a sovereign State. Then you had not measured his strength and greatness: you took him on faith, and your faith has been justified. Now he hus become an integral part of the Vital forces of tho Commonwealth. He, stands before you a strong and virile ilgure, pregnant. masterful, commanding ; one of the great char acters ot the history of New York ; abundant in ripened powers, yet full of vigorous growth: having done great good and capable of greater good; keen. Intellectual, eloquent with tongue and pen respecting the rights of others and his own, unstained in public and private morals, with lofty and noble conceptions of duty: ardent, well balanced and sincere. It might have been cogently arguod In ISfHI that nls nomination would commit the party to the In dorsement of a mere political and personal ex periment. That cannot be done in lrSict. The ambition of Gov. Black two years ago was legitimate and honorable. Conscious of the posessinn of great powers. he had the right that every man enjoys to secure preferment from his Iriends, and his exercise of it was no cause of offence. He prevailed and became Governor. He now frankly seeks the renomttiation that fair-minded men candidly concede he has earned. You are to pass upon his fate within the hour. You are about to commend him as entitled to the confidence and suffrages of tho people or to banish him from opportunity for thofr consideration. "There are scores of men In the scats of delegates In this hull whom I have known for many years as upright, sincere and con scientious, loving justice, animated by high principles, possessed of deep and profound convictions. I do not think that I err when I express the belief that to many of them this is one of the gravest moments of their lives, and that the sense of their responsibility weighs heavily upon them. You will be asked in adroit and polished phrase. In words of eloquence that I cannot command, to reject him. You will be told that expediency demands his retirement to firivate life. It will be urged that the oaptlvat ng brill lunoy ot a military record will blind the eyes of the people of New York to the more sober merits of duties well performed in civic place; that th smoke of battle from that far Cuban hill has so far veiled and obscured the noble qualities of Gov. Black that they eo hn of no further use to th State. Are you pre pared to admit the soundness and wisdom of all this? Are you persuaded that suoh argu ment 1 just? Are you convinced that such a course is best calculated to enlist the service of good and able men In public careers ? Are you ready to say, with all the great prestlgo of this vast convention, that there is no bar of justice in polities at whloh the deserving oan receive the fair rewards of their merits? Will you deem it prudent to announce such doctrine to the youth of tho part and of the State ? "Look at the situation fairly, gentlemen. To what trust, great or small, has Gov. Black proved faithless ? What Interest of the people or the party has he neglected ? In what respect has his administration been other than praise worthy? Has not the State prospered since he became its chief magistrate ? Order has been maintained. The laws have been enforced. Wise measures of government have been In spired and promoted by him. Bod schemes have perished beneath his hands. The tax rate has been reduced, and the burdens of the people lessened. The Capitol has been completed and lifted into the honest sunlight. Th sudden and difficult emergencies of war have been met and disposed ot by him. wisely and well, under a system of military administration and equipment that had known only peace for a generation. Honest primaries and honest elec tions have been insured, so far as good laws can make them sure. The public bureaus and de partments have been administered prudently and honestly. He has appointed Justices of the Supreme Court und local judicial and minis terial officers all over the State whose selection has met with warm professional and popular approval. There is no better, cleaner or more efficient administration than his in the Union, and there never has been. lam not here to discuss its details. You know them, and you know that you approve them. " If Gov. Black shall not be renominated here It will not be because his service hus not been useful and dignified, but for some other reason. Let us not delude ourselves. Let us not shut our eyes to the truth, or turn our faces from the light. It us look at facts as they are. und call things by their right names. The ad ministration of Gov. Black stands for all the Republican party represents. If that party Is not fit to lio trusted with the Government of tho State, then he is not. If it de serves a fresh grant of power from the elector", then he deserves renomlna tlou. Are patient years of arduous and faith ful toil in the service of the commonwealth to be lightly Ignored and set aside? The people are keen and far-sighted. They recognise merit when they find It. They are not readily de ceived. Ninety-nine out of every hundred citi zens will attest the blameless Integrity and the great talents of the Governor They be lieve in him. They know that he is of simple life, unostentatious, willing to work, self-made, self-reliant and energetic. They like hist rank -ness, his direct, plain, terse, epigrammatic man ner of speech. They know that he Is not rich In this world's goods, but they are sure that he is rich In saving common sense, and in all those virtues that make the homes of the land good and the sons of the land strong in triumph and in adversity, and that he does not seek to evade any of his duties of citizenship. They know that his cleur gaze enn pierce and transfix shams and delusions. They have found him to bo radically conservative and consurvatlvely radical. They know that he holds to the faith of the fathers, and does not follow strange gods: that he stands on the safe and ancient way, and does not wander Into jungles and morasses of populism or socialism, or the Bry anlsin that signifies but l "Muke no mistake, my friends. The popular strength of this man lu greater and mure deeply seated than many of you seem to think. If lie shall bo nominated here, that strength will augment with xvcrv hour to the election Willi liiiii there are no surprises, no ambus cades in store lor the party. You all know the worst that can be sail about him. Y'ou have seen all the enemies he has on the bills and In the open. They are not In the valleys and the woods, ready to spring forth lu unknown num bers as soon as this convention shall adjourn. It is not my duty nor my purpose to insti tute comparisons between him and any other strong and capable Republican that may be placed ill nominal ion here to-day. Between them you will decide, not I. Gov. Black's loy ulty to his purty. his confidence 111 Its purposes of right, his conception of the great work It has wrought and of the lottv mission still before li. are part pi tho very essence and fibre of his being. He has dovoted years of toll, in season and out of season, to its upheaving. He loves the great names enshrined in its vallialla. He bends in reverence before the splendor of It history and the promises of the future. He is the friend of all Republicans, and un selfish lu his appreciation and praise of their good works. He recognizes the canons of party rule and government. HI faith I in the wisdom of th majority, lis believe that the great political organisation to which he and the rest of us belong I the most effi cient instrumentality of good government the republic ha ever known.

Then oame the time for the Hon. Chauncey M. Depew to make the nomination speech for Col. Theodore Roosevelt. Senator White Intro duced Mr. Depew to the audience us " Mr. Depew of America." There were cheers and laughter at this. Dr. Depew hns made seven thousand speeches where the young statesman from Syracuse has made seven. Dr. Depew's speech evoked I he greatest applause. But, novertheloas. some of tho old-timers said thnt If Senator White kept on he would in time make as good a speech as Dr. Depew. If Senator White's speech wns a red. white and blue affair.

Dr. Depew said: OKIT.W'S srEF.CII NOMINATING ROOSEVKLT. " Genti.kmkn i Not since H-UIM has the Re publican purty met in convention when the conditions of the country Were so Interesting or so critical. Then the emancipation proo. latitat ion of President Lincoln, giving free dom and citizenship to four millions of slaves, brought about a revolution In the internal Policy of our Government which seemed to multitudes of patriotic men full of the gravest dangers to the republic The ollcot of the situation was the sudden and violent sunder ing of the ties winch bound the past to tho present anil the futuie. New prob lems were precipitated iipui our statesmen to solve, which were not to be found In tho text, bonks of ihe schools, nor ill the manuals or tra ditions of Cotigiess. Tlie one coin ago nils, con structive party which our polities has known for liulf a century solved those problems so successfully that tho regenerated and disen thralled republic has grown und prospered un der this new birth of liberty beyond all prece dent und every prediction. " Now, as then, the unexpected has happened. The wildest dream ever horn of tho imagina tion of the most optimistic believer in our des tiny could not foresee when McKinley was elected two yeurs ngo tho on-rushlng torrent of events of the past three months. We are either to lie submerged by this break in the dykes erected by Washington about our Gov ernment, or we are to find by the wise utiliza tion of the conditions loreod upon us how to be safer and stronger within our old boundaries, and to add incalculably to American enterprise and opportunity by becoming masters of the sea, and entering with the surplus of our manufactures the markets of the world. We cannot retreat or hide. We must 'ride the waves and direct the storm.' A war ha been fought and won, and vast pos sessions, new und fur away, have been acquired. In the short space of 113 days politicians and parties have been forced to meet new questions and to take sides upon startling issues. The face of tho world has been changed. The maps of yesterday are obsolete Columbus, looking for the Orient and its fabled treasures, sailed 400 years ago into the land-locked harbor of Santiago, and to-day his spirit sees his bone resting under the Hug ot a new and great coun try which has found the way and conquered the out posts, and is knocking at the door of the farthest East. "The times require constructive statesmen. As in 177(1 and iHtiri, we need architects and builders. A protective tariff, sound money the gold standard, the retirement of the Gov ernment from tho banking business and State Issues are just as important as ever. Until three months ago to succeed we would have hod to satiety the voters of the soundness and wisdom of our position on these questions. The cardinal principles ot Republican policy will be the platform of this canvass and of future ones. But at this junc ture the people have temporarily put every thing else aside and are applying their whole thought to the war with Spain and it conse quences. We believe that they think and will I vote that our war with Spain waa just and righteous. We cannot yet say that American constituencies have settled convictions on ter ritorial expansion and the government of dis tant Islands and alien races. We can say that Republican opinion glories In our victories and follows the flag. , " The resistless logic of events overcomes all other considerations and Impels me to present I the name of, as it will persuade you to noml- I nate us our candidate for Governor of the Stat of New York. Col. Theodore Roosevelt. If he were only the hero of a brilliant charge on the battlefield, and there wa nothing else which , fitted him for this high place, I would not put him In nomination. But Col. Roosevelt has shown conspicuous ability In the oubllo ser vice for ten years. He wa a soldier three months It is not time which tells with an executive mind and restless energy like Roose velt's, but opportunity. Give him the chance and he leads to victory. He has held two posi tions which generally ruin the holder of them with politicians and the unthinking. One was Civil Service Commissioner and the other Police Commissioner for New York city. So long as the public did not understand him there was plenty of lurid language and gnashing of teeth. The people are always just iu the end. Let them know everything that can lie said about a man and see all that the searchlight of fubllcity will reveal and their verdict is the ruth. When the smoke had cleared away from the batteries of abuse they saw the untouched and unharmed figure of a public-spirited, broad-minded and courageous officer, who un derstood official responsibility to mean the per formance without fear or favor ot the work he had promised to do and obedience to the laws he had sworn to support. The missiles from those batteries flew by him as innocuously as did the bullets from the Spanish Mausers on the hill of San Juan. " When ho became Assistant Secretary of the Navy he was in u sphero more congenial to his genius and abilities. He Is a better soldier than he Is a policeman. Life on the plains had broadened his vision and invigor ated his youth. Successful excursions Into the literature of the ranch and the hunting for big game had opened up for him tlie present resources and boundless possibilities of the United States He was fortunately under the most accomplished, able, generous, and Indul gent chief in Secretary Long, A small man would have been jealous of this dynamitic bundle of brains, nerves, energy, and initia tive, but our distinguished Secretary gave full scope to his brilliant assistant. The count: i owns much to him for the ifflclency and splen did condition of our navy. "The wife of a Cabinet officer told me that when Assistant Secretary Roosevelt announced that he had determined to resign ami raise a regiment lor tho war. some of the ladies in the Administration circle thought It their duty to remonstrate wtthhlm. Theysnld: 'Mr.Roose velt. you have six children, ths youngest a few months old, and the eldest not yet In the toens. While the country Is full nf young men who have no such responsibilities and are eager to enlist, von have no right to leave the burden upon your wife of the care, support and bring ing upof that family.' Roosevelt's answer was a Roosevelt answer: 'I have done as much as any one tobringon this war. because I believed it must conic, and the sooner the better, and now that wur Is deelurod 1 have no right to ask others to do the fighting and stay at homo niyselt.' "The regiment of rough ciders was an origi nal American suggestion to demonstrate that patriotism and indomitable courage are com mon to all conditions of American life The same great qualities arc found under the sloucliTuit of the cowboy and the elegant im ported I lie of New York's gilded youth. Their niajinerlsms arc the veneers of the West and the East ; their manhood Is the same. " In that hot and pest-cursed climate of sum mer Cubu officers had oiiiortunltles for protec tion from miasma and fever which were not possible for the men. But tho rough riders endured no hardships nordungers which were not shared bv their Colonel, lie helped them dig the ditches; be stood beside them In the deadly dampness of the trenches. No lloored tent for him If his comrades must sleep on the ground and under the sky. In that world fumed charge of the rough riders through the hull of shut and up the hill of San Juan their Colonel was a hundred fent In advance. The bullets whistling by him ure rapldl thinning the ranks ot these desperate fighters. The Colonel trips unit fulls und lie- line wavers, but iu a moment he is up again, waving Ins sword, climbing and shouting He bears a charmed Itfu. lie clips the barbed wire fence and plunges through, yelling: 'Come on. boys: come oti. and we wilt lick licit cut of them.1 The moral force of that daring cowed and awed tlie Spaniards, and they tied from their fortified heights and Suuilago was ours "Col. Roosevelt Is the typical citizen-soldier The sanitary condition of our army In Cuba might not have been known for weeks through the regular channels of inspection und report to the various liepnrfmenls. Hern Ihe citizen in the Colonel overcame the official routine und reticent f the soldier. His graphic letter to the Government and tlie round-robin ha initi ated brought suddenly and sharply to our at tention the frightful dungers of disease und death and resulted in our boy being brought immediately home. He may havo been sub ject to court-martial for violating the articles of war. but the Immune impulses of the people gave him gratitude and applause.

Judge Charles T. Snxton of Wayno came to thn platform to second thn nomination of Gov. Black. The statesman from tho peppermint district made an excellent address. Before going any further It should be snid right hero that the speeches in (his convendon were ot an unusually high order. Thn speeches in n State Convention, Republican or Democratic, are usually dull and stupid affairs. There wus nothing of this kind to-day. Every man who spoke was well received and gave expression to his uttorances with fervor and In strong, clear, and excellent language Judge Saxton spoke of Gov. Black in the highest terms as a courageous, honest and able Executive of the State of New York. He said he had no rellections to make on Col. Roose velt and nothing unkind to say of anybody: but he wanted to remind the great audience that if Col. Roosevelt had performed his duty faithfully in the late war, so also had Gov. Black performed his duty faithfully and loyally in his dealings with President McKinley and all others Interested In bringing the war to a swift and victorious close. Assemblyman YVallace of Hempstead sec onded Col. Roosevelt's nomination. He spoke of Col. Roosevelt In neighborly fashion and told how the people of Long Island looked upon the gallant Colonel as a fine, wise, good and honorable neighbor. Then came Col. Abraham Gruber's time to make his speech for Gov. Black. Col. Gruber, along with Edward Lauterbnch of New York city, had been among Gov. Black's most ardent supporters. Col. Gruber brought the conven tion down with a laugh. His speech was marked by a few Indelicate flings at the Hon. Timothy L. Woodruff. At least that was the criticism heard of Col. Gruber's speech. It was remarked that they were ill-timed, for the reason that Gov. Black and Mr. Woodruff had come to a complete understanding a to Mr. Woodruff's renomination for Lieutenant Governor. COL. GRUBEB'S SPEECH. Mr. Gruber said: "To do that which is prompted bv the heart and commended by the head is indeed u grate ful task, and that is mine now. If I make a mis take of the heart I expect to b forgiven In heaven. Laughter.) If I moke a mistake of the head I expect to be forgiven by the organization, as I have forgiven him in the past when I have prayed for him. I come before you as an organization man who bears many political scars In fighting for the organization, but it is not always necessary for me to undergo an operation when the organisation has ap- Fendleltls. Prolonged laughter and cheering.) expeot that I will agree again with the organi zation, but I know now that the organization agrees with me In the conclusion that there is not one good reason for the refusal of a nomination to Frank S.

If the hero of an Juan were a delegate In this conven tion he would, it true to all of his political teachings and belief, sav, as I now say. that Frank B. Blaok. by all rules of right, and polltlos. Is entitled to a renomlnstlon. Pro longed cheers. We have been told thst times have changed, but Frank S. Black has not changed. Cheers.) The Republican party has not changed in ninety days, and political honesty has not become political dishonesty lii ninety days. The gentlemen who advocate the nomination ot Theodore Roosevelt unite in commending his course as Governor. They all say that his record is a splendid one. and! apprehend that the platform to be adopted here will commend Gov. Black's administration.

Hn at once calld for th rciiortiif (hn Com mil tee on Resolutions and th pint form was read by Gen. Stewart L. Wood ford, the Chairman of the committee. The platform was reported from the commit tee without a dissenting vote and was adopted unanimously by the convention. The conven tion expressed Its full commendation of the war plank, especially the statement that the Untied Slates must not return oontrol of any of the conquered Mauds to Spain. This is the platform: THE PLATFORM. The Republicans of New York. In convention assembled, congruliilute the country upon the conclusion ol the wur with Spain. It was not undertaken for conquest, '"" '"r ,," sacred cause ot humanity and for thn just protection of American interests. It has resulted In the complete triumph oi Americuit urms on land and sea. nnd we meet, with resolute faith, all the real onslblliiles which our victories impose. We congratulate the country upon the pntrlotle wisdom, the patient courugn nnd the lu nil humanity which dislinguishnd ihe oon duct of President M'-Kltilnv during the critical periods of diplomatic negotiation and battle, und which now guide him In the restoration of peace. CltlEeni of every State nnd every party fought and won under his command. All lingering sectionalism wns burned out inthe heat of buttle, nnd to-day. with tho war ended and pence ussurcd. all our people give honor nnd praise to the President who so bravely and so wisely enforis'iltlio nutloiiul will and upheld the n.'ii louni arms. Weeonttstulate our amir nnd navy upon th splendid victories nf the wur, nnd wn wnlcom home our brave soldiers ami sailors, who. by their courage and sacrifices, huve added a new dignity to American citizenship nnd given new power and menuing to our fine. Wo have abiding confidence thut the Presi dent will conclude this peace upon terms that will sutlsfy the conscience, the judgment, nnd the high purpose of the American people. We realise that when the m ssittes of war com' polled our nation to destroy Spanish authority In tlie Antilles and In the Philippines we as sumed solemn duties and obligations alike to the people of the islands we conquered and to the civilized world. We caiiuot turn these Islands back to Spain. We en nnot leave them. unarmed tor defence nnd untried In statecraft, to the horrors of domestic strife or to partition among European powers. Wn have assumed the responsibilities of victory, and wherever our flag has gone there the liberty, the human ity aiidthocivlllzntinn which that flag embod ies and represents must remain and abide for ever. Thn Republican party has been the party of brave conservatism, of wise progress, and of triumphant faith lu the nationality ot this peo ple, and we know that the President and states man nnd voters of the Republican party will meet these issues of the future aa bravely and triumphantly as we have met the issues of th past. Wo commend tho snnexstion of Hawaii in the Interest of commerce, of national security and national development. We renew our allegiance to tha doctrine of the St. Louis platform. We continue to con demn snd resist the Democratic policies de clared at Chicago. The organised Demoeratlo party of the nation adheres to these Chicago policies of free silver and free trade, and denies the right of tlie courts and of the Government to protect persons and property from violence. On the coming Sth of November we are to elect not only our State officers, but also Rep resentatives in Congress and members of our State Legislature, That Legislature in Its term will elect a United States Senator to suc ceed the present Democratic Senator from this State. Democratic leaders declare thst they will conduct tills campaign upon State issues alone. But it is known that if tlie Democratie party secures the State Legislature it will re elect to the United States Senate that Democrat who now represents hla party ther and misrepresents the State. That Senator supported the cause of free silver: supported the uomlneesof the Chicago Conven tion in the last Presidential election ; gave his vote In the Senate for the heresies of that Chicago platfotm. and must. If reelected, con tinue to support those heresies. Democrats may try to deceive tha people by Ignoring the I anarchistic doctrine of that Instrument in their State platform, but their members of Congress and their Senator, if they shall suo ceed In reflecting him. cannot and will not ignore those doctrines at Washington. We are ready to meet the Democrats on all State Issues, but In a larger sense this cam paign Is a national campaign, and our people cannot escape Its national consequences. The election of Republican members of Congress and of a Republican State Legislature will mean that New York shall stand Tor the main tenance of the gold standard und for such a re vision of the currency laws as will guaranteeto the labor of the country that every paper promise to pay a dollar. Issued under the authority of the United States.shall be of abso lute and equal value with a gold dollar always and everywhere. . , The Republican party is fulfilling the pledges we made at St. Louis. We have enacted a con servative protective tariff, so wisely devised that tho revenue is amply sufficient to pay the ordinary expenses of the Government in times of pence, while capital Is encouraged to seek employment and tho wages of labor are main tained at that high standard which experience has proved to be nceessnry to the welfare of our people. Our exports largely exceed our imports. The gold of the world comes steadily to our shores, and with a continuance of Re publican policy and Republican national ad ministration the prosperous future of the na tion Is assured. . 9 In the interests of American labor and com merce, wn believe that American produots should be carr'ed In Amerleun ships, and we favor the upbuilding of an American merchant marine which will give us our shore In the car rying trade of the world in time of peace and constitute an effective naval militia lu time of war. , , Wo commend the administration of Gov. Black. It hus been wise, statesmanlike, oar, fill and economical, and has resulted In the lowest legitimate tax rate which the State baa had since infill. ... We commend the work of the Legislature of 1-diN in enacting laws looking to the better ment of t he roads of t hu State t hrough a proper local supervision by Boards of Supervisors: in completing, thiough Ihe direct agency of the Governor, the Capitol building at Albany; In adopting for cities of the second class a uni form charter : In throttling all attempts to place socialistic taxes upon the fruits of Industry and economy; in meet ing every demand required by the war; in beg. nning the abolition of dangerous grade cross iigs on ruilmuds: in securing for the sailors in the 1 ederai service tliolr right to vote I in passing a primary election law to aid in pui 'living the franchise and to enable all oor people to participate in the honest and effective work of the caucus and thn primary, and In transacting the public business of the Leglla I ture and adjourning In a shorter period than uny other Legislature since 1K1-.

There have been collected under this law. during its brief period of existence, more than f.l.'t.(KH).(8K). which huve been applied to the reduction of Stat and local taxation, and have thu relieved the earn ings ami savings of all the srople of the Stat. New York stands foremost among the States of the Uulou in caring foilhe interests of labor. Almost everv law thai has declared, upheld, and 4 preserved the rlghls of labor has been passed by the Republican party. Tim Republican Leg islntur.'SoflSH7 arid lKliS were occupied largely with such legislation. Factory Inspection has been extended. The prevailing rat of wages lias been enfotced upon all pub lic works, railroad corporations havo been compelled to adopt a ten-hour law. The law securing thn weekly payment of wages has beeu extended to Include all joint stock assooi uHiuis snd its violation has been made a crime. The right to use labor labels has been seemed to labor organizations. Eluliorata provision have been enacted forthe security of employeee " in factories and "tores and for their better treatment. The Mechanics' Lien aw has been amended so as to prefer all labor for dally and weekly wages before all other claim ants, without reference to the time when such laborers file their notices of lien. Subletting of contracts has been absolutely forbidden without the written consent of the responsible awarders. (Qualified engineers are now alone permuted to run stationary engines in New York city. Tlmse are examples ot what the Republican parly has done for labor in our State legislation. As we have been the true and consistent friends of labor in the past, we pledge ourselves tube the true and consistent I frh ndi. of labor in the lilt inc. The Republican party of New York has always been the party of honest and economical ad ministration.
