Mrs. Fairbanks Is proftrandly ambitious for her husband, and It Is well understood that It was her lnfluencs that rrevafled t.pon hhn to yield his permission ' that his name be used in connection with the second place an the ticket. Having persuaded her husband that he should heed the caE of duty. 3Irs. Fair banks lent her efforts to the movement to bring about bis nomination. She Is a splendid politician, and she scored many points la the same that was played here during the first days of this week. She remained here to-day In the apartments occupied by the Fairbanks In tho Audi torium Annex, and there awaited news of the result of aU her plans. John B. Cockran, a delegate from In dianapolis, was the .messenger who car ried the food news. Almost before the cheers had died away in the convention hall. Mr. Cockran. who had made the trip to the hotel In an automobile, burst 'into the Fairbanks suite and fairly shouted: "It Is alT over and they are shouting. It was a splendid demonstration." 'Thank you. thark you." said the Sen ator, grasping Mr. Cockran's hand and giving it a hearty shake. Ton wfll for give me for the time that I have given to Mrs. Fairbanks.

While Senator Fairbanks was speaking tho door to his apartment was thrown open and in rushed a host of delegates and their followers. Mrs. Fairbanks was en Joying the proceedings much mora thor oughly than was her husband. Those who shook hands with him passed nn and congratulated hsr. She beamed and smiled upon all and had no difficulty In discover ing the words which refused to come to Senator Fairbanks') tongue. There was a tactful utterance here and a suggestion there, with an occasional whisper to an intimate friend. All of the time Mrs. Fairbanks was watching her husband, making no effort to conceal her pride. When seen In the early evening by a BANQUETS FOR THE JURISTS.

CHARLES W. FAIRBANKS. reporter for Tho Republic, Mrs. Fair banks Bald: "AM PROUD OF MY HUSBAND." "Of course. I am proud. I am proud of my husband, and I am proud of his friends I believe that I am Justified In saving that Senator Fairbanks will wear well the honors that have been put upon him to-day by his party. It Is true that he shrunk from the nomination, not be cause he has not respect for the office, but because he prefers to remain In the Senate as an active member. "When he counseled with me. I told him that It the nomination came to him with out opposition he could not refuse It. It did so come, and I am clad that his party trust him as It does. For several days I have believed that he would be nom inated. Early this morning his friends told me that no other name would be present ed to the convention. Nevertheless, It was an anxious wait. "1 have seen much of politics, and I know that accidents are frequent. When Mr. Cockran came -with the news I was the first to congratulate my husband, and had I not been hre with him I do not knew how he would have gone through w.th the reception of this afternoon. Few people realize how much inclined to bash fulness he Is. It In his only weakness, and I krew his experience this afternoon was In tho nature of a punishment to him."

Corteljou was chosen chairman ot the Republican National Committee at a meeting held to day Just after the adjournment of the con entIon. In thanking the committee for the honor, he told the members that, while he would be glad to have the Jaeneflt of their adlco and counsel, he intended to be chairman In fact, and would accept no dictation from anyone, high or low. He told them that the frierds of the late chairman, Mr. Hanna, were his friends, and he askod for the same meas ure of confidence and support that had been given- to.the last chairman. In con clusion he sought the adUcc of both o'd and new members.

LOCIB B.F PBDUC, AND THE NEW YORK HEHAIJ). London, June 23. (Copyright, 1904.) A starUlng diplomatic mystery Is Just now occupying tho attention of the authorities In London. It concerns the strange disap pearance Of Mr. Kent Loomls, brother of the Assistant Secretary of State at Wash ington. He left America on the Kaiser Wllhelm XI on the 14th Inst., on a diplomatic mis sion to Europe, which included the deliv ery of Important dispatches to General Horace Porter, the United Ambassador at Paris. A member of the American Ambassa dor's staff was waiting to meet him, and accompany him to Paris, but Mr. Loomls did not appear, and all trace of him had mysteriously vanished. No one could tell what had befallen him. His absence from among tho passengers who landed at Cherbourg from the liner was promptly reported to the Ambassador at Paris. So much Importance was attached to the matter that wireless tolegraphv was util ized to communicate with the liner, which had resumed its voyage to Bremen. It was thought that by some odd chance the diplomat had been left on board and was being taken on to Germany. The message reached the liner and a re ply was received stating that the vessel had been searched, but nothing had been heard of the missing gentleman. The greatest fears for his safety are felt. ELECT OFFICERS AND ADJOURN Electrotypers and Photo-Engravers Tour the Fair Grounds. Delegates to the National Association of Photo-Engrayers and the National Electrotypers Association of America, who have been in semljolnt session at the Century building since Tuesday,, finished -w- Mterday and adjourned. The olection of national officers was the only business of importance that was taken up at the final sessions. Tho officers chosen bv tli dectrotvpers were: President. J. H. Ferguson, New York: vice president, George A. Howland. Toronto, Canada; sec retary. C. S Partrld. Chicago: treasurer, J. J. McErlaln. South Bend. Ind Tho Photo-Engravers chose J. L Chil ling. Chlogo. president; H. A. Tchell. Philadelphia, first vice president: 8. Blanchard. Boston, second vice president: C. H. Brandon. Nashville, treasurer, and George 11. Benedict' Chlcaro. secretary. The next annual convention of the two orders will be held at Atlantic City at the same time the United Typothetae hold their meeting there. After adjournment tho members of both conventions spent the aftentoon at the Fair. They left the St. Nicholas Hotel at i: o'clock, going by automobiles to the Exposition. After making a short tour ot the grounds luncheon was served 4n the Irish Village at 3 o'clock. The party then proceeded to the Liberal Arts build ing, where they spent an hour viewing the priding exhibits. A tour of the Pike in the evening -completed tbe entertain ment., "which the eighty delegates pro nounced the most enjojable part of the convention. CORTELYOU LOOMS STRANGELY ROOSEVELT AND FAIRBANKS; NEGRO- SECON0SNOMINATI0N. Continued From ure. The chairman tired, and his place was taken by a young man, who grasped the flagstaff firmly In one hand and with a megaphone led the yelling. He started the call. "Roosevelt, Roosevelt. Roose velt," repeated over and over again with the system of a college yell. It was taken up by the throng, and tho fry ot Roosevelt rolled over the hall in volume so great and so terrific that tho screeching ot a hundred steam whistles would have been dwarfed In comparison. Tho delegates. In their eagerness to ex hibit approval ot the nomtnatlon.,accepted every Igral for renewed cheering. A little negro boy from Georgia, and later a pret ty little girl, drcssod In a dainty frock of white, were lifted to the platform, and they waved flags with as,, much vigor as their more lusty preceptor. At the conclusion of. every seconding speech the performance yriB repeated, and the speakers themselves were generally applauded. " - OVATIOFOR FAIRBANKS. When Senator Fairbanks had been nom inated for VIco President, there was no diminution in tho. demonstration. Voices wre hoarse, but lie noise for the choice was Just ajrunatiUnous as It was in filling tbe first place on the ticket. When the convention was called to or der to-day the galleries were filled for the first time. Tiers of people were standing In aisles and back of the rows of seats. It was known that the popular feature of the convention the making of nomina tions was the programme for the day. The attendance was flattering to the ora tora chosen to present the names. It was known yesterday that no contest of any character would develop. As surely as President Jtoosavclt was the choice for the first place on the ticket, Senator Fairbanks was wanted for his running mate. It was 10.30 o'clock when Speaker Can non called the convention to order. With out preliminaries of any kind he an nounced the order, of tho day, and In structed the secretary to call the roll for. nnmlnatlnn for President- Bv airreement Alabama, the first State on the roll, yield ed to New York. That, was the, signal-f or the first outburst of applause. In the ml'dul of the cheerlhri fdnner Governor. Black made his -waV"tfj the platform., Speaker Cannon took him to the -front and characteristically introduced him to the audience. But the oratorCchosen to pre sent the name of. Roosevelt needed no in troduction. The delegates proved this, and." also that they knew his mission by giving htm a rousing reception before permitting him to proceed. 3 Mr. Black entertained his audience by a discussion of party principles. Ho com pared Republican standards with those of other parties. With his keen sense ot humor and the deep thought displayed In his address, the orator fascinated always and frequently electrified his listeners. He led up to the nominaUon gradually by de fining the type of man best suited for the party color bearer. .,. ,i BLACK'S SPEECH. I Frank S. Black of New York placed 'President Roosevelt In nomination, and said. In part: ' Mr. Precldent and Gentlemen of th Conven tion: V are bere to tnauwrate a camptlca which eemn already to tl-fearljr closed, go wisely have tbe people aowed and watcbed and tended tbere aeems little now to do but to measure up the grain. They are ranging them tlres not for battle, but (or harvest in one column, reaching from the Maine wooda to the Puset Sound, are those people and those States which hare atood so lonr together that when great emergencies arise the nation turns instinctively to them. In this column, vast and solid, la a majority so overwhelming that the scattered squads in opposition can hardly raise another arm The enemy hay neither guns nor ammunition, and it they bod they would use them on each other. Destitute of the weapons of effective warfare, the only evidence ot approaching battla is in the tone and number or their bulUttne Thtre U discord -amonir the renerals: discord among me Boiuicra xcn wouja nxni in nis own war. but before assaulting bis Republican adversaries he would first destroy his own comrades In tho adjoining tents. Each believes tbe weapons chosen by the other are not only wicked but fatal to the holder. That is true This Is the only war of modern times where the boomerang has been substituted for the gun. Whatever fatalities may occur, however, among tho discordant hosts now moving on St. IduIs, no harm will come this fall to the American people. There will be no opposition sufficient to raise a conflict. Tbere will be hardly enough for competition. There aro no Democratic plans for the conduct ot tho fall campaign. Their zeal Is chiefly centered In dis cussion as to what Thomas Jefferson would do if he were living. He Is not living, and but few of his descendants are among the Demo cratic remnants of to-day. CLAIMS THOMAS JEFFERSON. Whatever of patriotism cr wisdom emanated from that distinguished man Is now represented In this convention. Whon all the peop'e have forgcttta will dawn a golden era for this new democracy. But the country is not ready yet to place a party In the lead whose most expressive motto Is the cheerless word "forget." That motto may ex press contrition, but It does not inspire hope. Neither confidence nor enthusiasm will ever be aroused by any party which enters each cam paign uttering the language of the mourner. You hao come from, every state and Terri tory In this vast domain. The country and the town have vied with each other In sending here their contributions to this splendid throng Every highway In the land is leading here and crowded with the members of that great party which sees In this splendid city the symbol ot its rise and power. Within this unexampled multitude Is every rank, and condition of free men, every creed and occupation. Hut t6-day a common purpose and desire haVo engaged us all. and from every nook and. corner of the country rises but a single choice to fill the most exalted office In Ihe world. . He Is no stranger waiting In the shvde to be called suddenly Into public light Tho Amer ican people have seen him for many years, and always where the flrht was thickest and the greatest need was telt. He has been alike con spicuous In the pursuits of peace- and In- the arduous stress of war. lie Is no slender flower awnylcg In the wind, but that herolo fiber v.hlch is bst nurtured by the mountains and the (now. He spends-little time In review, for that he knows can be done by the schools. A autcxtnan grappling with the living problems of the hour, he gropes but little In the pt He believes In roln; ahead. He believes that In shaping the detl nlea of this great Republic hope is & higher Impulse than regret. He be'Ieres that prep aration tor future , triumphs Is a more Impor tant duty than an inventory of past mistakes. A MAKER OF HISTORT. A profound student ot history, he Is to-day the greatest history-maker In the world. With the Instincts of the schaUr, he fa yet forced from the scholar's pursuits by those superb qualities which fit him to the lart degree tor those great world currents now rushing past with larger volume and more portentous aspect than for many years before. The fate of na tions la still decided by their want. Ton may talk of orderly tribunals and Teamed referees; you may alng In your rchooli the gentle praises of the quiet life; you may strike from your books the last note of every martial anthem, and yet out in the smoke nnJ-thundtr will al tnii be the tramp of hones, and the silent, rigid, upturned face. Men may prophesy nd women pray, but peace will come here to abide forever on this earth only when the dreams ot childhood ar the accepted charts to guide the dcsttnlen of men. Btnt are numberlera and mighty, and no man can toil which wire run around the world. The nation basking to-day In the quiet of contentment and repose may etlll be on the deadly circuit, and to-morrow writhing In the toils of war. This la the time when great figures must be kept In front. There are times when great fltnws la hardly leii than dtiny. when Jhe elements so com together that they select the agent they will use. Events Fometlmes select the strongest man, as lightning goes down the highest rod. And xril Is with these events which -for many months with unerring alght have led you to a single name which I am chosen only to pro nounce. Gentlemen. I nominate for President of tt United States the highest llrlnr type of the youth, the vigor and the procure of a. great country and a great age, Theodora Roosevelt of New York. As he named Theodora Roosevelt as the best example of that type the- convention rose. Tho New York delegation led In the cheering, which almost immediately spread to every part of the floor, to the galleries and to the -crowds which filled the entrances and overflowed into the streets. MISTOOK CANNON'S SIGN. After the crowd had yelled itself, hoarse it permitted the Tnd to participate In the demonstration. The leader chose patriotic music and the familiar words were taken Will Not Accept Pago One. up by the- convention and sung with earn estness. Tre band changed to rag-time, and the convention found that cheering was better timed to tile music. There was no pause in the enthusiasm. Several times Speaker Cannon -walked out on the projection to the platform extending be tween rows of press seats and lifted his hands for order. The crowd thought he was leading the applause and paid no at tention. When, from sheer exhaustion, the throng lessened its tumult, Speaker- Cannon found his opportunity. Going tb the very edga of the platform, ho khell and pounded the floor for order, WhSn he had gained attcntian ef the conven tion, ha announced that the flag hi bad been waving Was sacrCd to the party as the national emblem waved When the be loved Lincoln was the choice Of the nrt Republican convention. ills speech caused another outburst in honor of tho flag. Senator Beveridge was recognized by the chair for tbe purpose, of seconding the nomlnat'On oC Roosevelt for President. Tho seconding speeches following that of .Mr. Knight Were made" by Harry Stll well Edwards of Georgia, former Govefnor Bradley of Kentucky, Joseph 1J Cotton of Minnesota and Harry S. CUmmiugs ot Maryland Cutnmlngs Is one of the negro delegatesand h told of the negro man's service to the .Republican party and his Interest in President Roosevelt. ALL WANTED TO yOTB.

Speaker Cannon announced that In tho convention mere were w voies. nna had been cast for Roosevelt. A great picture of the President was carried about through the hall. It was followed by a banner carried by the Oregon delegation bearing the words: "First gun. Oregon, 23,804. Roosevelt. Forty per cent Re publican gain." Alabama again yielded its place at the head of the list, when the roll call was started ""for nominations for Vice Prerf 'dent. -The Yank was this time given to Iowa, and Senator Dolllver. taking the platform; named Senator Fairbanks. Tl o speech was an eloquent Indorsement of the candidate's qualifications, and was re ceived with tremendous applause. DOLLIVER'S SPEECH. Senator Dolllver of Iowa placed Sen ator Fairbanks In nomination for Vice President. Ho said, in part: 7ni1vn,n tif the Convention: The Katlonat Republican Convention, now nearly ready to adjourn, Jias presented to the wosld a moral spectacle ot extraordinary interest and sig nificance. It, Is a fine thing to see thousands or men, representing millions of people, fight ing in the political arena for their favorite candidate, and contending valllantly for the success of contradictory principles and con nictlng doctrines. Out ot such a contest, with its none- and declamation. Its flying banners. Its thunder ot the captains and the shouting, the' truth often recures a vindication, and the right man comes out victorious. Sometimes, however, wisdom is lost in the confusion, and more than once we hae seen the claims of leadership swallowed up In contention and strife. We have the honor to belong to a convention whose constituency in every State and Terri tory, ind tn the Islands of the sea. ba done Its thinking by quiet fireside, undisturbed by clamor of an sort, and has simplified our re 'snonslbllltlea Wthn unmistakable terms of the credentials wTilch we hold at their hands. FOLLjOVVED IlLAINB'S IIANNbR , At Intervals, of '-four-year I followed the banner of James G nialne through the street of our conventlcn cities, from Cincinnati to Minneapolis, and did my fult share to eee that nobody got any more applause than the gnat porular leader, who captured m enthusiasm long,befor I, waa old enough to vote. But tha judgment, cf the Republican party is not only united upon Its candidate t la unanimous also upon tha fundamental prin ciples for which he stands. I think the con vention has been fortunate in harmonizing (the minor differences which unavoidably arise In a country like ours, where speech is freo and where printing is free We stand together on the proposition that the Industrial system ef the United States must not be undermined by a hostile partisan agitation arj that whatever changra are necessary In our laws, duxht to be made by tha friends, or at least the acquaint ances, ef the protective tariff system. The things upon which we are agreed are so great and the things about which we differ ar so small that we are able, wtthqut sacri ficing sincere Republican convictions anywhere, to unite aa one man In defense ot our com mon faith We stand at the beginning of the new era. and while the Republican party leans on the counsel ot Its old leaden. It has not hesitated to summon to the responsibilities of public life the young men who have been trained under their guidance to take up tho burdens which iSS !?. r5adv' t0 JV down, and finish the P .w, .fh comes to them as an Inheritance ofpatriotlsm and duty. ..TSJ1 J th s'OTincance of the nomination ?itJh?d.?" n"T;.,,L,nd th,t ls " explana tion pf the call which has been mad bv the jiepuoiican partv without a dtsientlrg voire, upon Charles w. Fairbanks to stand by the !hiSf ,.hruPrS,M'r,'. ,n th imldance and lead ership of the Repub'lcan party. OFFICE SOUGHT MAN. While he has not sought to constrain the Judgment of the convention, directly cr In directly, he haa kept himself free from the affectation which undervalues the dignity of the second office within the gift of the Ameri can people, and I do not doubt that his heart has been touched by the voluntary expression of universal good will which has already chosen him as one of the standard bearer, of the Republican party of the United States. The office ha sought the man and he .will crlng to the office tho commanding personallty ot a statesman equal to any of the great re sponsibilities which belong to our public af '5,r., A lta"l of "je Senate!, the champion of all the great policies which constitute the record of the Republican party during the last ten years, his. name villi become a tower of strength to our cause, not onlv In hie own State, but throughout the country, A man of affairs the whole business cemmunlty shares the conQJence which his political associate have reposed In him from the beg'nning of his public life. The quiet, undemonstrative popular public opinion which has given tha Republican party & platform upon tthich all Republicans con stand, with no dissenting voice here or any where, has long since anticipated the action of thts convention In adding to the National Republican ticket th name of Senator Fair banks of Indiana, and I take pleasure in pre senting his name. honoicO everywhere through out tho United States, as our. candidate for Vlre PreMdcnt. , i Seconding speeches were made b7 Sena tor Depew. Senator Foraker. Governor Pennypacker of Pennsylvania, and for mer Senator Carter of Montana. All were applauded to the echo, and tho great popular demonstration which greeted the unanimous nomination by the convention wot an enthusiastic tribute to the Indiana statesman, -whose name was thus joined with Roosevelt. r FAVORITE SONS WITHDRAWN. When Illinois. Nebraska, Missouri and Georgia were called, announcement was made that the candjdacles of favorite 'sons had beer: withdrawn. The entire vote, therefore, was cast for Senator Falrbanka The usual resolutions of thanks to offi cers of the convention and to the Commit tee on Arrangements were adopted, and the great body was adjourned. Speaker Cannon came Id for one of the resolutions, and he blushed like a school boy aa the word-bouquet was given him. Ho made eleven speechet during the day, each a few crisp, original sentences. In troducing the eleven orators. His audience never tired of watching or hearing him. He was a sauce to the proceedings. His Jockey walk to and from, the penin sula of the rostrum that projected Into the audience amused everyone. H kept a tight hold on the right, band of each speaker with his right hand, and swung the gavel in his left. The wide sweep or the heavy mallet rather terrified members of the press, who were within range, for sometimes their heads escaped by , not more than an Inch. While Speaker Cannon spoke bis whole body shook, bis left arm- made full cir cles, both legs vibrated, and even his tors could be seen working up and down In his shoes.
