Too Weary Even to Cheer Gains of Favorites. IN SESSION UNTIL NEARLY 1 Every Occurrence or Announcement That Offered Excuse Turned Into a Joke. BALTIMORE. July 2.?Wilson's vote went above r>00 last night in the demo cratic convention and then benan to recede. Thfn adjournment was taken until noon today. As the thirty-fourth ballot was reached by the convention yesterday afternoon counsel was taken among the leaders, and it was decided j to move for a recess until 8 p.m. The 1 managerial staffs were willing. and the ballot was. in a sense, merely in formal. "Wilson, however, picked up three votes from Maine, Clark losing one and Underwood two. In the Vir ginia delegation one of the delegates switched from Underwood to Clark. When the recess was taken a re capitulation of the fipures showed that up to that time Wilson had gained 72U and Clark had lost 21^. The galleries were crowded as the time neared for the calling of the roll for the thirty-fifth ballot. They had been thrown open to the generai pub lic, and Baltimore took advantage of the occasion. The calling of the session was de layed by the failure of the leaders to arrive. Chairman James did not reach th?? stand until 8:20 A moment later he dropped his gavel and prayer was ? ffered by the Rev. ?'layton II. Ranck. His prayer was brief and was vigor ously applauded. Chairman James ordered the doors closed to prevent further overcrowd ing He warned the galleries against j disorder and declared that the slight- j est evidence of a demonstration would result in the immediate clearing of j any section. He then ordered the roll ; call for the thirty-fifth ballot. The roll call was interruped by the entrance of William J. Bryan, whose advent was greeted with cheers. Michigan Delegates Break. A break In the Michigan delegation came according to expectation. The Wil son delegates cheered as the vote was an nounced: "Wilson. 157; Clark. 3." This gave Wilson 15 additional votes, taking them from the Cl;N:k column. The steady gain which Wilson had been making all day conYinued on the thirty fifth ballot, the New Jersey governor se curing 15 votes net. dark lost 14. Un derwood's \ ote remained at 101^. Kern lost 1. On the thirty-sixth ballot the chance was immaterial. Clark gained a single vote, and Wilson secured 2 additional. After the thirty-sixth ballot Chairman James surrendered the gavel to Senator O Gorman of New York. A cheer greeted the senator as he began presiding. In Connecticut Underwood gained 4 from the Clark column. When Florida was called & poll was demanded. The call of the delegates! showed that of the twelve delegates 2 were for Wilson and 1<? for Underwood. Senator O'CJorman ruled that the reso lution abrogating the unit rule In oases where a preferential primary had been held applied to the Florica delegation, and the vote was recorded: Underwood, 10; Wilson, 2. The ruling produced con siderable disorder, which Senator O'Gor man had some trouble In quieting. In Tennesee <"lark lost 3*4 The delega tion gave Clark, Wilson and Underwood 8 votes each. On the thiTty-eighth ballot Clark lost IVz, Wilson gained 2 and Underwood On the thirty-ninth ballot the first break came In Colorado. Wilson was given one of the twelve Clark votes of the state. While the Colorado delegates were In structed to vote for Clark until "re leased by him." Chairman James held that there was no unit rule Involved, and that the delegates were responsible only to "their people." The single vote was counted for Wilson. Illinois Sticks to Clark. Just prior to the thirty-ninth ballot the Illinois delegation held a caucus on the proposition of allowing a split to Wilson. It was decided not to allow a break at that time, and on the thirty ninth ballot all of the flftv-eight again voted for Clark. Iowa srave Wilson two more Clark votes, making the state's vote Wilson, 15; Clark, 10. In Wisconsin another vote we/it to Wilson from the Clark column. This ballot pulled Wilson one and one half votes above the 500 mark, and his adherents on the floor cheered mightily. Clark lost three to Wilson. Under wood's vote was unchanged. Too Tired to Cheer. The Wilson people started a demon stration, hut the tired delegates did not respond enthusiastically. Aided by the ,pollce. Chairman James soon quieted the uproar. ? On the thirty-ninth ballot Clark had only fifty-seven more tlxin the one-third necessary to hold a veto pojver and pre vent a nomination. On the fortieth ballot Clark regained one of the Iowa votes which had de serted to Wilson. In Ohio Wilson gain ed one of the original Harmon votes, giving him twenty in the state to tWen tv-elght for Harmon. The only net change on this ballot was a gain of one for Clark and a loss of one for Harmon. Before Chairman James could order the forty-first roll call begun a tired Alabama delegate yelled: "I move that the convention ad journ until 10 o'clock tomorrow morn ing." A. Mitchell Palmer of the Wilson forces demanded a roll call, but the motion vg) withdrawn, and the forty first roll call begun. The forty-first ballot showed a loss of two for Wflson and a gain of one for Clark. When the vote was an nounced, another attempt was made to adjourn, this time until 11 o'clock to day. By the time Maryland was reached on a roll call on the motion to adjourn a big vote had been recorded against it, and it was withdrawn. Then In great disorder the forty seeond roll call was begun. As the forty-second ballot proceeded the disorder grew, until' J. Hamilton* Lewis of Chicago, who was in the chair, had trouble enforcing quiet. The delegates Insisted upon Joking Lewis and the convention roared with laugh ter when Iowa's vote was announced. "Twelve for Cla.rk, thirteen for Wil son. and one for J. Hamilton Lewis." It took Lewis several minutes to subdue the uproar, but he finally an nounced: "Please be as quiet as is consistent to your convenience, gentlemen. Let the roll call proceed." When Michigan was reached the Clark cohorts cheered, for the Speaker gained six votes at the expejise of Wil son. Everything1 Turned Into Jest. By thla time the delegates were so tired of the proceedings that they did not take things seriously. Every oc currence or announcement that offered th* slightest excuse was made the basis of a joke or greeted with howls and jeers. Gov. Brewer of Mississippi, in announc ing Mississippi's twenty votes for Under wood sanu the last syllable of the name in a free, rich baritone. He had been doing the same thing throughout the evening, but this time the delegates took it up in a long, loud roar. "Wo-o-o-o-d" swept the hall. Some of the more musical delegates surrounded the roar with a series of trills and cadenzas. Chairman Lewis had a great deal of difficulty conquering the noise. On the forty-second ballot Clark gained f> and Wilson lost 5%. Underwood lost 2. When the result of this ballot was announced, Delegate Wallace of Wash 1 ington took the floor, and moved to ad jjourn until noon today. In the midst of i disorder Senator Stone of Missouri, sec I onded the motion, and A. Mitchell Palmer demanded a roll call. The roll call had scarcely begun before the weary delegates, seeing that the motion was practically certain to prevail, began to crowd from their seats and out of the hall. The aisles were jammed be ! fore half a dozen states were called, and j the call proceeded in disorder. By the 'time the last state had been called, less jthan half of the delegates were in their ! places. The end of the call was finally reached, and at 12:4S the convention adjourned until noon today. BAND PLAYS NO LONGER Democratic National Commit tee Decides to Save $500 a Day. BALTIMORE. July 2.?"We are not here for the entertainment of the pub lic," said Chairman Norman E. Mack yesterday, in explanation of the ab sence of the band which had been heard in all former sessions of the convention, "for the band costs $500 a day, and there is no need now for anything else but balloting." > An impression had gotten abroad that the band was engaged by contract for only five days, the conclusion having been drawn, therefore, that the musi cians could not be persuaded to work longer. But Mr. Mack stated In answer to an inquiry in regard to this question that the band was engaged "by th? day," and that there had been no demand upon the part of the delegates for continuing the music this week. Expense Thought Useless. While the band had befn enjoyed by delegates and alternates ailke, the in creased cost of running the convention caused by employing the band was thought useless, and Chairman Mack's de cision was adhered to without protest. The band played principally when there were demonstrations in the interest of some candidate, the button being pressed from the chairman's stand whenever it was desired that the band should play. In some cases the band was heard above the noise and hub bub of the -crowd, but in others it was almost impossible to hear it. Occasionally Chairman James ordered the band to play while the vote was be ing counted by the tellers, but ordinarily there was very little for the musicians to do. Down among the delegates there was not much difference of opinion about the most popular song presented. Those from the north were just as enthusiastic over "Dixie" as were those from the south, and the same could be said of their at titude toward "Maryland. Mj Mary land." I POLICE GUARD BRYAN Disgraceful Riot Threatened in Democratic Convention. ALL-AROUND FIST FIGHT Banner Displayed Quoting Nebras kan's Eulogy of Clark. EX-GOV. FRANCIS APOLOGIZES Reported Plot to Prevent Bryan From Making- Any More Speeches in Convention. BALTIMORE, July 2.?A disgraceful riot was threatened in the convention just before adjournment yesterday afternoon, when two Missourians and a California newspaper man tried to raise a Clark banner over the press section of the con vention hall. While an all-around list fight was oc curring Just before the speakers' stand, Mr. Bryan, against whom the quotation on the Clark banner was directed, stood upon the stand demanding the ritfht to be heard in reply. Four policemen had guarded him against personal as?aults on his way from the seats of the Nebras ka delegation. The trouble began when R. I. Tolseon and J. E. Lynuh, two Missouri delegates, rose in their seats and unfurled a bftnner upon which was printed in big block let ters the following: "I have known Champ Clark for eight een years. He is absolutely incorruptible and his life is above reproach. Never in all these years have I known him to be upon but one side of a question, and that was the side that represented the peo ple."?Prom a speech by Bryan in 1910. Convention in an Uproar. As soon as the significance of this at tack upon Bryan was realized by the peo ple in the hall the great uproar followed. This encouraged the standard bearers to further activity, and they moved across the aisle where the Nebraska delegation sat. Again they lifted the banner on high and at the same time pointed di rectly at Mr. Bryan. Other Clark people in the hall pointed first at Mr. Bryan and at the quotation on the Jefferson banner which decorates the east end of the building. This quota tion, which the Clarkites repeated in cho rus. is as follows: "He never sold the truth to save the hour." Bryan went to the men who carried the banner, asking them to remove it from before him. This was refused, and the Nebraskan jumped from his seat and started to the platform. As quick as a flash hostile delegates crowded around the westerner with ominous designs. Pour policemen finally drove them back and Mr. Bryan reached the rostrum. Before Mr. Bryan addressed the chair, however, he returned to the convention floor and approached the members of the Missouri _ delegation. He demanded to know of them if the banner was the work of Ihe delegation or the work of two or three irresponsible members of it. No satisfactory answer was given, and he once more returned to the speaker's stand. Like a Foot Ball Scrimmage. 1 Those carrying the Clark banner. In the meantime, had returned to their own sec tion, immediately under the press stand. Hugh Maclsaaes of Mr. Hearst's San Francisco newspaper tried to lift one end of the banner above the heads of the newspaper mpn. One of the Missourians made an effort to raise the other t nd. As quick as a flash, however, J. D. Davis, another newspaper man, tackled Mac Isaacs very much after the fashion of a I foot ball player, hurling the Californian Into the crowd below him. A panic of limited proportions followed this spectacular proceeding. The Texas delegates, infuriated at the statements that had been made to Mr. Bryan by the Missourians*, had edged threateningly to ward their neighbors. Only an aisle sep arated the two forces. When the form of the newspaper enthusiast went flying through the air. the Texans plunged In. A dozen policemen and as many more! cool heads among the two delegations prevented a conflict that would have un doubtedly involved the whole convention floor. Uttle by little the belligerents were pressed hack, and little by little Chairman James and the other conven tion officers restored order. Bryan Livid With Rage. In half an hour from the beginning of the rumpus Mr. Bryan was recognized to state his question of personal privilege. "I rise to a question of personal privi lege," said Mr. Bryan, his face almost livid with rage and with his lips pressed together until only a thin line marked them. "If the Nebraskan will state his ques tion the chair will ride upon the matter and determine whether or not the ques tion is well taken," replied Chairman James. "A banner was brought and placed in front of us," continued Mr. Bryan. "I asked that it be removed, but my request was not granted. Then 1 went to the chairman of the Missouri delegation to see if it had been placed there by author ity of the delegation. I "If that was not done by the authority of the delegation, then I have nothing to say. If it was done by such authority, then I demand the right to answer the question which tMissouri puts to me." Without hesitating a minute. Chairman James said: "The chair regrets to state that toe gentleman from Nebraska ha3 not stated a question of personal privilege. He is therefore ruled out of order." Banner Bearers to Be Arrested. It was after the Nebraskan had taken his Beat that Mr. James, contemplating what, might have happened in the conven tion as a result of the riotous conduct of the Missourians, declared with great em phasis: "I order the police and the sergeants-at arms to arrest any man who comes into this hall with a banner of any kind, for anybody. I mean, too, that this order shall be carried out." After the trouble had passed over a number of the Clark people made the frank statement that Mr. Bryan would not be allowed to make another sj*eech during this convention, regardless of the consequence. An organized and system atic disturbance wil be planned, they said, to drown any words he may utter. They were prepared yesterday afternoon to carry this plan into effect If Mr. James had ruled the commoner in order. Ex-Go v. Francis Apologizes. A personal apology was made to Wil liam. J. Bryan last night by former Gov. David R. Francis of Missouri, who said he was not in the convention hall during the afternoon when Clark adherents placed in front of the Nebraskan a ban ner inscribed with iMr. Bryan's former eulogistic estimate of the Speaker. Mr. Francis said the action of the men handling the banner was an indignity, and expressed the opinion that it would not have happened had he been present. It matters little what it Is that you want?whether a situation or a servant ?a want ad In The Star will reach the person who will fill your need. REPLIESJOATTACKS Bryan Refers to Yesterday's Banner Incident. STANDS BY CLARK EULOGY Unwilling to Withdraw Compliments i Paid Speaker?Perhaps Shook Hands With Murphy. BAI/TIMORE, July 2.?Pausing for an instant in his hurry to get to the conven tion hall last night, William J. Brymi answered warmly some of the attacks made upon him during the day. Regarding the banner displayed In the convention hall in the afternoon, on which appeared a quotation from a speech which Mr. Bryan was supposed to have made in regard to Speaker <~'lark two years ago, the Nebraskan voiced the sen timents which the chairman would not allow him to do in the convention. The quotation on the banner read: , "I have known Champ Cla^-k for eight een years. He is absolutely incorruptible and his life is above reproach. Never in all these years have I known him to be upon but one side of the question, and that was the side that represented the people." Speaking of this, Mr. Bryan said: No Charges Against Clark. j "As to the quotation which was brought into the hall this afternoon, I take it for granted that the quotation is accurate. 1 have said things fully as complimentary as those quoted, and I am not willing to withdraw anything I have said about Mr. Clark's record. "I have made no charges against him, except upon his own admission, that he took no part in the chairmanship fight. 1 say he should have taken part. "If there's a difference between Judge Parker's brand of democracy and mine then we have had sixteen years of dis cussion for nothing. "If there is a difference, Mr. Clark ought to have taken the progressive side, or, not having t?ken that side, ought not to complain of criticism from those who ' believe we should have had a progressive temporary chairman. "The other point is as to the acceptance of support from the Murphy delegation. In his statement this morning Mr. Clark said: " 'I know of no reason ^i'hy I should insult the ninety New York delegates by refusing to accept their votes.' "In that statement he puts Mr. Mur phy's delegation on the same footing as other delegations, and he must stand or fall by the correctness of his judgment. I believe we cannot afford to nominate a candidate with the aid of Mr. Murphy's delegation. Under the unit rule he (Mur phy) controls it, and I believe the preda tory interests control him. Mr. Clark must take the responsibility for his deci sion in this matter, and I will take the ' responsibility for mine." May Have Taken Murphy's Hand. Mr. Bryan was asked to comment upon a photograph of himself shaking hands with Murphy at L/incoln four years ago, which appeared in the New York Ameri- , can yesterday. Copies of the paper were given away free by the thousand in the convention hall and about the streets and hotels. Without hesitation Mr. Bryan replied: "I saw the picture representing me 1 shaking hand* with Mr. Murphy. I i have shaken hands with Mr. Murphy. I have even shaken hands with Mr. Hearst. In fact, a man In politics has to shake hands with most anybody. I do not require a certificate of character from a man when I shake hands with him." Mr. Bryan was asked about the state ment which accompanied the photograph In the paper, to the effects that he had telegraphed to Murphy at Denver, ask i ing him to stop at Lincoln on his way home from the convention. He said: "I do not remember the telegram. I went to the station and met over 500 I persons returning that day. I also met I other trains." Ignores Stanchfield. "Would you care to comment on the speech made today by Mr. Stanchfield of the New York delegation?" was asked. With a deprecatory smile, Mr. Bryan said: "I would not care to assume that the convention had leisure for the discussion of such criticisms as might be mad? of me. I am not concerned about any one's opinion of me. I am trying to draw a clear-cut line between Wall street and the people. As Mr. Stanch field admits he is on the Wall street side, he saved me the necessity of fur nishing any proof." Explains Recent Activity. Regarding his recent political activity Mr. Bryan said: "I did not come here as a candidate for the presidency, and I am not a candidate." "I have taken a more prominent part in this convention than I expected or de sired." he continued. He explained that his original plan was not to have appeared at the conven tion until after it had nominated a ticket. Then he Intended to come to the hall and make a speech pledging himself to sup port the nominees. He insisted that he would have carried out his program but for the fact that the subcommittee of the national committee selected Judge Parker for temporary chairman. That action caused him to take the steps that have given him the center of the stage. Expected to Take Minor Part, "Not only did I come here with no idea of being a candidate, but I came with the purpose of taking only a minor part In fact, I had considered the matter of not appearing at all until after the nomi nation had been made, and then to come only to make a speech in favor of the nominee. It was in pursuance of this plan that I wrote three weeks in advance of the convention to the subcommittee, and without naming a chairmanship can didate suggested that they consult with Clark and Wilson, and if possible elect a chairman on whom they could agTee. "When I learned from two members of the committee that Parker had been se lected I protested to Chairman Mack. I then telegraphed the progressive candi dates, asking them to join in opposing the election of Parker. Wilson was the only one who announced that he would oppose Parker. If Clark Had Opposed Parker. "It Clark had been willing to have made a fight against Parker, the latter's name would have been withdrawn, or if not. Senator James, a progressive, would have been elected. That would have made it unnecessary for me to have appeared at all in the matter. I then went to Senator O'Gorman and Senator James, asking them to be candidates, because they had been voted for in the committee. I then suggested to Senator Kern that he be come a candidate, and I approved the stand that he took afterward in the mat ter. And if Judge Parker bad accepted the proposition Senator Kern made he would have been the hero of the conven tion." His Other Onslaughts. Mr. Bryan explained that his second appearance, when he made the sensa tional and unexpected fight for the adop tion ot hi* resolution reading Morgan. Belmont and Ryan out of the rarty, was decided on a few minutes before he came to the convention. He declared that his third appearance, last Satui-day, in explanation of his vote, during which he said that no progressive candidate ought to accept the support of Now York, would not have been made tf a demand had not come for the polling of his delegation. Mr. P.ryan maintained that he has not. been trying to force himself on the con vention. "I have been sitting here today like any ordinary delegate, and have not even been cheering any of the speakers or the result of the ballots." ' .

Dubois of Idaho, at luncheon. Miss Clark, who is vivacious in manner, expressed the greatest confidence that her father would win. While she would not say In plain words that the loss of her father's lead in votes was due to the association of his name with those of Belmont, Murphy, Taegart and others by William J Bryan, she sa'd the tight, which has assumed a personal aspect, "based on charges that had no founda tion," and which were accepted in the heat of the political convention by the del< gates, was underm'ning some of he father s strength, but that enough friend* were In Baltimore to see that the truth of the Insinuations reached the bearers of the Clark banner.
