and the use of weuael words.
A terrific debate ensued. Hecord Is
sued a mlnorlty'rcport end ws liowl-d
off the htaso. tJardner suffered n like
fate, (Jllbert K. Itoe. la r-'oUottK's. aw
partner, announced . that the Senator
refused to run on any platform ex
cept his own. and the laborltes howled
that thoy would have no such platform
and that It waa a matter of principles
and not of candldtes nor of expediency.
Thero was continual pandemonium. It
was utterly Impossible to learn on which
side impromptu speakers were. It wss
apparent that tho radicals had run away
with thine.
Meanwhile thy wero trylns to pacify
everybody. Robert Uuck and Abraham
Lofkowlts took turns arousing tho deep
est passions of the throng. They made
It a .straight Issqo bxtween radicalism
and liberalism and In such luina ma
jority worn tho radlcala that tho few
liberals were threatened with ivory Mo
lepee short of murder.
Ufkowitt and Uuck insisted that the
LaFolle,tte platform did not come oul for
a square deal for negroes nor for Gov
ernment ownership and Pemocratlq con
trol of public utilities. In the following
ten rninutca of furore, there wero mlxod
arguments and battles. A white delo

All tho vaunted freedom of this con

announced themselves for the less radl--al
platform were hissed, howled at and
vhrtatcned. It became o unpleasant to
some that they left the ball, Mersrs.

leaving behind the following reasons for
to dolnsr. Their, statement leads:

Delegate, Nicholas Cllne of Cincinnati

this was July 11, the day that the de
struction of the Bastlle is colJD'rated
Tim upshot of this was that all business

hi 11 far corner. The singer bad begun
on too high iv key and tho anthem came
ti a halting and premature end. Mean
time two speeches were under way anj
a florid, huge woman In the gallery,
wtaring a (laming red hat, was scrnunp
Ing Hka a battled Fury, She had a
tpecch to deliver and It required some
thing more than the dissent of 1,000
equally angry delegates to dlssuado her.
She was a marvelous woman, u woman
who might lead a battalion of death and
llkn It. Klie delivered her speech, Her
voice was a Scottl baritone.
Out of the.hurly burly came Abrahaat
Lcfkou Its of New York to announce that
.the platform commltteo had qempleted
Its work and would report at 3 0 clock,
lr. the afternoon- Thero waa .1 great
cheer and with one shout tho convention
adjourned to wait for the platform and
to howl forth suppressed speeches on th
pavements outside and In the corridors.
Afternoon Session HeRlns,
The afternoon sssslon was convened
with renewed vigor. Bob MoCauley, tho
Single Tax party's nominee for Presl.
dent, entered the hall, attended by his
ticket mate, It. C, Barnum of Cleveland
It was not sportsmanlike, of course, but
the truth Is that some unfeeling dele
gates In this convention, which tho
Single Tnxers bolted to nominate Mr.
McCauley, did ran Bob a bit. Until
three months ago Bob fevered down
town i-ollce stations and other nw
depots In Philadelphia, for the rhlladel
phla Inquirer, He has promised tho
correspondent of Tub Sun anp Nkw
YonK Herald a place In his Cabinet In
the event of his being elected.
Thq apparently Inevitable split In the
convention came to pass as soon as the
convention reconvened In the afternoon.
During the recess tha Non-Partlaan
League, the Rank and Fllo Veterans As
Boclatlon and the Committee of Forty
eight delegates who hall from the Wost
and Northwest received advance news
that a message from La Follette. asking
that the convention not nominate him;
wna to'be read by way of opening the
afternoon seeslon. They were correctly
Informed. H waa read by Chairman
Walker, who explained It waa brought
to him by Robert M. La Follette. Jr.
Immediately the blow-up came.
Lester P. Uartow, a dapper youth,
carrying the banners of the Hank and
Fill Vcti-rnns Association and the World
War Veterans, took the platform. Ho
did not ask for It merely took It. Tho
Li Follotte following- preparod to leap.
Tho youthful Bartow, who was not In
tho service during the war, at once an
nounced that he dldnt believe that Rob
ert M. La Kollette over wrote such a
declination. He said La Follette said no
Buch thing to him at Rochester. Minn..
Just before going on the operating table
and that he believed there was some
thing crooked about It.
' Attempt nt Stampede.
"'Bob' La Flette will run!" he
shouted.. "He wl- un If they 1st him.

Place for 1a .oSrtto and hla platform
waa on. omc ono leaped upon the
Mage and ripped down an American
flag, revealing a huge llthograflh of the
Minnesota Saaator With a great roar,
a crowd In tha left gallery unloosed an
enormous red banner on which "Bob La
Follette" was printed In white. A wild
looking eltlsen got-down on his knees
before the portrait. A woman plumped
to her knees beside him and bftsn to
kiss tha picture. Itgxi J:Si when the
furore started nnd for twenty minuted
such were the conditions within tha
badly ventlUttd hall.
Thore were actual fist fights. Coat!
ami dresses were torn. Straw hate were
pniashed and two women fainted, The
labor delegates kept their seals unmoved.
Kvery Stalo standard snvo those of
Texas and Ohio was smashed from Its
place and carried In an Insane parade
up and down and aourtd the hall.
A delegate from Texas a man. who
so closely resembles La Follette that
wanted nothing to do with La Follette,
on the platform announced that he
wanted nothing to do with La Follette
Inasmuch as his resemblance (o the
Senator had caused him such agony al-

were not so kind to him.

tho charce that" he had been compelled
to tako .over all, the Wilson policies a
his own ho yet didn't dare deny tho
truth of. tho charge lest thn denial give
offence to the Whlto House.
When Senator Hardlrfp saw the Cox
statement he road It, smiled a bit enig
matically and sld It didn't seem to call
for any comment from him. He didn't
purposo to "get Into a debato by wire,"
and then added ;
"Somo day I am going to deliver my
self ot a speech here In which I will
discuss what I consider tho desirabili
ties and. Intimacies' of a front porcn
campaign." v
One of tho most Important political
conferences olnco tho national conven
tion was held for an' hour In the llttlo
upstairs front room of the residence In
which the lUrdtos; cxtcutlva offices are
located. Senator Harding and Robert
K. Wolfe, publisher of tho Columbus
fifafc Journal and Columbus Dispatch,
wero closeted alone, and when Mr.
Wolfe emerged he anpo.unccd smilingly
that ha should, of course, support Har
ding and that Harding was "certain to
sweep Ohio."
The significance of this declaration
lies In the fact that In all the cam
paigns In' which Cox has been a candi
date for Governor the Wolfe papers
have aupported htm, They constitute
an Important power In cmtral Ohio,
and thero has been much 111 suppressed
concern on both aides of tho political
line as to what Mr. Wolfo would do.
He made his declaration for Harding
without any qualification, and It was
apparent that both ho nnd the nominee
were greatly plc'ased with the results
of their conference.
. Lillian Russell to Cumpnlaii.
It was learned that Lillian Russell Is
going to campaign the West for Senator
Harding. The fact becamu known after
a visit by Alexander l Moorr, Miss
Russell's husband and publisher, of tho
Pittsburg Leader.. Mr. Moore was one at
tho Roosevelt leaders In After hla
talk with Senator Harding he said:
"The fact Is tho election !s all over, I
think the results will be a, good deal llko

Senator Harding received to-day what
he considered one of the most significant

from the Democratic ranks, apd every

Ono of tho real human touches do
velooed was whsn Senator Harding re
ceived a, letter from a man In Bt. Louis
who once had been a prisoner In Ihe
Illinois penitentiary ana whom tne uena-
fpr had helped to s. parole, The Senator
was so pleased that lis took the time
nerconelty to write an answer of thanks.
The man had written:
"Please accept my sincere congratu
lations, I ' am tho man who was In
