NO " ICAW DAY SESSION RESULTLESS It Ended in a Prolonged Bryan Demonstration Then Darkness was Await ed for the Political As sassination of Guffey. Denver, July 8. Temporary Chair man Bell culled the second session of the democratic national conven tion to order at 12:16 o'clock und asked that order be preserved. Rev. Dr. Reisner of Denver was introduced to deliver the invocation. For a brief time after the prayer there was an interval while the various march ing clubs passed through the hall. New York gave the first indica tions of standing by and signing with thirteen other states the min ority report of the credentials' com mittee in the Guffey contest. Chairman Bell recognized Grady of New York, who presented the report of the committee on rules, which was unanimously adopted. Several addresses of tribute to the memory of the laie Senator Jones were de livered. A motion to adjourn was twice put. At the first. Bell was in doubt, and the second time the gal leries voted overwhelmingly in favor of continuing the proceedings and the chair declared the motion was lost. Senator Gore of Oklahoma was fin ally summoned to the platform and in the course of his remarks refewed to Bryan. A great demonstration was commenced. The band played and several delegations carried ban ners to the platform. At 1:30 o'clock when the cheering had lasted thir teen minutes, practically every state, except Maryland, Georgia, Minnesota. New York, Delaware and Connecticut had a banner grouped around Gore. Later the delegates began to pa rade aroimsi the hall, and the dem onstration, which began at 1:26 o'clock, was still in progress at 2:10 o'clock, with , every possible device employed to increase it. At 2:14 o'clock the Cowboy band left the gallery and joined in the procession.

PmSBURGER- UNHORSED The Bryanites Failed to Muster Will be Required for the An Exciting Night Session Which Was Begun In Confusion and Was Devoted Entirely to the Eight Over the Report of the Credentials Committee Which Was Sustained by a Vote of 387 to 615. Denver, 'July 8. The galleries were well filled long before the first dele gates and alternates began to make their appearance for the night session. A great crowd of sightseers were gathered outside the auditorium, as it was the opinion of many visitors that the night session would reveal a repro duction of the sjiectacular scenes en acted during the day. The delegates were of another mind, and did not pour Into the hall with the same alac rity as was shown by the public. The officers of the convention and the members of the credentials com mittee were In a panic as the time ap proached for the opening of the con evntion, because the majority report of the committee was missing. The preclou8 document was in the posses sion of a stenographer and he could not be found. The same Individual was also in possession of a speech to be delivered by Representative James of Kentucky, who was also in mental dis tress because of the absence of his oration. The last seen of the sten ographer was at 1 o'clock. Chairman Callahan of the credentials committee was rushing hither and thither about the hall frantically send ing messengers and working the tele phone to every spot where his imagin ation allowed him to suspect the miss ing stenographer might be in retire ment. Callahan finally went to Chair man Bell with the Information that ho could not find the report and sug gested that some of the speakers fill In the time in the lapse before the missing report could be found. The convention officials, after a short conference, held after Callahan had rushed away on another hot chase, decided no work should be un dertaken by the convention tonight ex cept to consider the report of the cre dentials committee. The debate on the majority and minority reports, it was agreed should be limited to thirty minutes on each side. The report of the committee on permanent organiza tion and the speech of Chairman Clay ton went over until tomorrow. At 8:30 the report of thf credentials committee was brought to the hall, but Chairman Bell had wandered off and could hot be located. The delegates and spectators put in another period of Inactivity while pages and messen gers were scouring the . hall to bring the chairman to his desk and duty. GUFFEY AT WHITE HEAT. Colonel Ouffey. about whom the storm of the night was expected to center, appeared on the floor shortly after I o'clock and was immediately surrounded by a number of his lieu tenants and sympathizers, prepared to take up the battle in his behalf. Guf fey seemed pale but determined. With clenched fist and furrowed brow, he talked with great emphasis and expres sion to those about him, one of whom was Peter O'Boyle. the chief aide of the Pennsylvania delegation. O'Boyle was scheduled to speak in defense of the colonel in case of an attack from any quarter. When Chairman Bell had been brought back after bringing down his gavel with a rapid tattoo, he gave vent once more to the stereotyped cry, "The convention will be In order; gen tlemen will take their seats." The convention, however, did not at once come to order, nor did "the gen tlemen take their seats," for the rea son that a number of letter carriers were distributing mail among the del egates. The galleries finally helped the chairman out and a storm of hisses quieted the turbulence on the floor. It was 8:47 when the business of the evening was taken up and Mr. Or mond of Florida was recognized to move that Representative Richmond Pearson Hobson of Alabama be invit ed to address the convention. Min gled with cheers of "Hobson. Hobson," were manv cries of "No. no." . AN UNWELCOME ORATOR. Chairman Bell put the motion to a viva voce vote, and there were ensu-. Ing storms of "aye," and "no," some of the delegates supplementing their neg ative votes by the demand "Give us the committee reports, we want to do business." "Please permit the chair to an nounce the result." said the chairman soon as he could be heard above the confusion. "I have a very sensitive ear and I will decied the vote a tie. It It, therefore the privilege of the chair to cast the deciding vote. I cast it in the affirmative. Congressman Hobson is Invited to address the convention." Cheers and a few hisses followed Hobson to the stand, but he received a warm welcome as he stood beside Chairman Bell. His first words show ed that he realized that his speech at that particular moment was not en tirely welcome to all delegates for he declared that he would not venture to make the address, if he did not feel It his duty to do so, but he would deliver himself of the truth as he be lieved he saw it. He then began and at some length led up to a discussion of the Japanese incidents several months ago at Vancouver ar.d San Francisco. After Hobson had been speaking fifteen minutes, the crowd began to grow restless and cries of time "time," came from the floor and galleries. Chairman Bell called for order, saying the speaker would conclude in a few mliites. In concluding his address Hobson declared that if the democratic arty was successful in the election, as he believed It would, at the end of four years it would have "a great for eign war on its hands." Instantly there came from the con vention a chorus of mingled groans, cat calls, hisses and cries of "no, no." HOOTING DOWN HOBSON. Hobson was compelled to cease his speech entirely, but he stood calm and tense, and determined to finish his address as soon as given the opportun ity to do so. "My countrymen, my message is nearly through," 'said Hobson, when he had secured attention. A cry of "amen" sent a gale of laughter over the halt "I want to say to you," went on Hob son, gritting his tovth with determin ation, "that not so very long ago the president of the United States said in my presence that there exists the greatest probability of a war with Ja pan." "No. no, come off," shouted the crowd. There were outbursts and cries which continued for several min utes. "Gentlemen," said Chairman Bell, "the speaker will be allowed to finish and if interrupted again by the galler ies, the sergeant-at-arms will be di- 'rected to ih-ar the..." The announcement was greeted with cheers which sprang from the coast delegation. "If this great war comes," said Hobson, with intense earnestness, "the party upon which the reson.si bility falls will be ground to powder. I believe at this juncture We should place the responsibility where it be longsupon the party now in power which refused to provide adequate coast refenses." For a time he was heard in silence, but a roar of laughter Went up when a voice from the rear shouted: "Hur rah for the Mcrrimac." Hobson finally closed with a plea that when the democrats succeed to power in the nation, they should be so prepared to ward off war as to provide peace and good will toward men throughout all the world. "The chair wishes to add a word or two," said the chairman, as soon as the tumult following Hohson's retreat had given him a chance to he heard Then lie said: "The chair hails from the Pacific coast but up to the present moment he has seen no occasion to enlist." A roar of laughter greeted this re mark which was turned into applause when he said: "If we have our way on the Pacific coast ve viil have a big enough navy to protect the coast." ENOUGH BATTLESHIPS. Col. Haldeman of Kentucky was recognized by the chair, and standing in his place in the center of the aisle he asserted that the convention had business to transpct and ought to pro ceed to it without further flights of oratory. Haldeman then proceeded to take Issue with Hobson, declaring that the United States had MMVity-two first class battleships and Japan but sixteen. "And I want to say we are not afraid of Japan or anybody else on the face of the globe," concluded Hald eman amid applause. Bell announced that the committee on credentials would not be ready to report for several minutes. "This af ternoon," said Bell. "I sent the com mittee down into the New York dele gation to escort to the platform Sen ator Charles A. Towne." That was as far as the chairman was allowed to proceed and Towne took the rostrum amid much applause. Towne kept strictly to his -promise made in the oppiiing of his speech, when he said he would occupy but little time of the convention. His address was brief and he left the platform distinctly impress ed with the good will of the conven tion. "Taylor. Taylor." cried many dele gates, remembering the invitation in the afternoon of the Tennessee sena tor. Callaghan of Massachusetts, chairman of the committee on creden tials was in the aisle clamoring for recognition, when Senator Taylor was escorted to the stage by a number of his constitutents. As Taylor retired after a brief speech, the chairman announced: "(Jentlemen of the convention, we are now going o get down to hard work. The committee on credentials Is ready to report. The chair recog nizes Christopher G. Callaghan, chair man of the committee." WHO ARE ENTITLED TO SEATS. Callaghan then read the report as follows: "In the matter of the contests from the states of Idaho, Illinois, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia, your com as Many Votes as Nomination mittee begs to report that they have carefully investigated each of said contests; hearings have been given both contestants and contestees in each of the said contests, and the committee has endeavored to ascer tain as near as can be all the facts bearing upon, each contest, and after a careful investigation of the merits of the contests, recommends that in leach of the folowing contests the del egations named by the national com mittee be entitled to seats as regu larly accredited delegates and alter nates to the convention, namely: "The state of Idaho; the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, sev enth, eighth, ninth and tenth dis tricts of Illinois; the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh dis tricts of New York; the nineteenth district of Ohio; the thirty-second district of Pennsylvania; and the District of Columbia. "In the mutter of the contest from the first, second, fourth, fifth, and sixth districts of Pennsylvania, we recommend that the contestants be seated and recognized by the con vention as the duly accredited dele gates and alternates from the said districts of the state of Pennsylvania. "In the matter of the contest from the ninth district of Ohio, the com mittee recommends that the follow ing be seated in the convention as accredited delegates from the said district: E. A. Powers and Dr. Wil liam Watts." While the chairman was reading the report, Roger Sullivan, chairman of the Illinois delegation, which state it was generally understood was de termined Ji-.t fight side by side with Pennsylvania in behalf of the minor- :ify report, was busily running about the floor conferring with a number I of other delegations preparing for the fight soon to come, j When Callaghan had read the de jcision of the committee in favor of the contestants, and against Guffey ;of Pennsylvania there were a few hisses and some applause. The in terruption was or Trier duration, however, and the reading of the re port continued. THE DEBATE BEGINS. In the matter of the two lists of committee appointments from the state of Pennsylvania. Callaghan re ported that the credentials committee had recommended, in view of the contest of the decisions, that the list 1. e referred back to the delegation for further action. Callaghan concluded by moving the adoption of the report. "I second the motion," shouted a delegate from Indiana. The chairman stated the question, and then recognized I. L. Straus of Maryland, who read the minority re port, which recommended that the contestees in the Pennsylvania cases lie seated. A statement made by Straus that the action of the majority committee was a staggering blow at the democ raey of a sovereign state called forth cheers. He asked the chairman for permission to make a few remarks in support of his motion to substi tute the minority for the majority. "Not now," said Bell, "put your motion and I will state the ques tion. It is moved and seconded that the minority report be adopted in place of that portion of the ma jority reisirt relating to contests," said Bell. , Governor Haskell of Oklahoma was recognized to move that the debate be limited to thirty minutes on eith er side. Kern of Indiana seconded the motion amid scattering cries of "no." The motion to put it to a viva voce vote carried, the volume of "noes" being quite small, ema nating almost wholly from Pennsyl vania. The- chair then recognized Chair man Callaghan of the credentials committee as the first speaker In behalf of the majority report. Be fore Callaghan began, Straus claim ed that as he carried the affirma tive he should have the right to open and close the debate. The chair ruled, however, that as chairman of the committee and as he represented the majority, he should have the right to open and close, and again he recognized Callaghan. Callaghan began by saying that the time allowed the majority would be divided between himself and Haskell of Oklahoma, the latter closing the debate. Callaghan said the evi dence liefore the committee showed that in Philadelphia the Guffey fac tion had brought a host of republi cans to the democratic primary. These voters, he declared, were mem bers of the Philadelphia republican machine, of which "one McNichol" was the head. In one congressional district where the normal democratic vote was about 1,000, the .vote of the primary was swelled to more than 2. T00. This was but one Instance of many, declared Callaghan, In the evi dence which was supported by un disputed affidavits. "When we considered all the evi dence," he concluded, "it was im possible to escape the conclusion that the real democracy of Philadel phia had been kept . at home ' by the alliance of one element of the dem ocracy with the dominant republican machine in that city." THE MINORITY REPORT. The minority report of the commit tee on credentials recommended that the delegates from the first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth districts of Philadelphia, Pa.. districts holding seats In the convention, be declared lawfully entitled to such seats and in support of the recommendation of the minority gave the following reasons: "First, that there is no evidence adduced by the contestants before, the committee to support their claim to said seats. "Second, the contestants produced no credentials accrediting them in any way to membership in the convention. "Third, they made no protest or ap peal to any convention of the demo cratic party in Pennsylvania, or to any tribunal or functionary of said party, or to any court in said state as pro vided by the primary election law of the state. "Vourth. the credentials of said con testees are unexceptional in every par ticular and abundant proof of their right to seats has been adduced. "The action of the majority of the committee is a staggering blow to in dependence of the democracy of a sovereign state. The convention can rest upon n,o other foundation than the supremacy within the state lines of the party organization of every state. "We therefore recommend that the saiil contestees retain the seats hereto fore awarded them by the legalized democratic primary and endorsed by the national democratic committee. "The report was signed by representa tives on the committee from the states of Maryland. New Jersey, New York, Louisiana, Illinois, North Carolina, Georgia. Virginia. Minnesota,, Dela ware, New Hampshire,- Kentucky and West Virginia. The first speaker for the minority re port was Straus, who presented it. He asked for the sustitution of the minor ity for the majority report on the ground that the majority report was an attack upon the indefensible rights of democrats of a sovereign state. To conclude the argument in behalf of the minority report, the chair rec ognized John D. Bellamy of North Car olina, one of the signers of the docu ment. He called out a storm of dis approval when he asserted that repub- (Continued on pase 3.) For Sale I will sell my six half lots In the Capitol Addition for 2600.

After a session of most of last night the working sub committee of the committee on res olutions resumed its sittings at an early hour today, but at 7 p.m. took a recess until a o'clock. It was re Krted that tiie memters of the com mittee had received Intimation that they would be needed in the con vention hall. It hud been the expectation of tho sub-conirnittee that it would be pre pared to report to the full committee a 5 o'clock this afternoon but when that hour arrived the work of the sub-committee was still so incom plete that it was necessary for the full committee to take an adjourn ment until 10 p.m. with the pros pect that upon meeting at that hour, it would tie necessary again to so journ until tomorrow morning. The sub-committee spent the first half of the day discussing the sug gestions made by Bryan and others selative to the planks of the plat form, but shortly after noon de cided, in order to make progress, that it would be necessary to sub divide the work and consequently sub-committees of the sub-committee were appointed on various subjects.
