a great ?horns of approval, and tho
long tight was over.
Only four ballots were necessary
to-day to reach a nomination. When
the convention adjourned last night
it had seemed to bo In an all but
hopeless deadlock. Wilson had be
gun to lose ground on the last few
ballots, and Champ ('lark had made
a few temporary gains.
This encouraged the Speaker to
rush over to Baltimore from Wash
ington in the hope of still further
turning the tide and rallying his
forces lo a final stand.
When he reached hore, however,
ho learned thal Ibo illinois delega
tion, al an early morning conference,
had decided to switch from ('lark to
Wilson. Tilla meant a change of 58
votes, ami was as fatal lo Clark's
chances as it was inspiring tn thc
Wilson forces. Illinois had been ox
pected io "break" ali day yesterday

Wilson ranks when it failed to do so.

Wilson forces went to t lie convent ion
hall at noon in the linn belief that
the New Jersey Covernor would bo
nominated before another adjourn
ment was taken. As they had an

the beginning of tho end. West Vir
ginia joined hands with Illinois in

third ballot, the llrst cast to-day.
How Wilson Voto .lumped.
Wilson jumped from his final vote
of HM last night to 002 on the llrst
ballot to-day. The figures told their
own story. The Wilson delegates
were jubilant as Chairman James di
rected the second call of the day -
the forty-fourth of tho convention.

ballot was In the Colorado delega

Governor of Indiana Will He AV i I son's
Running Mate.
Baltimore, July 3.-In tho dying
hours of the Democratic National
Convention this morning it seemed
for a time that there would he ano
ther deadlock over the nomination
for Vice President. Governor John
E. Burke, of North Dakota, for
whom Mr. Bryan had expressed a
preference for second place on tho
ticket, had polled enough votes on
the ?lrst tw i hallets to block the
nomination o?' Governor Thomas B.
Marshall, of Indiana, the leader. The
third ballot had just been ordered
when the chairman of the North Da
kota delegation obtained recognition
from the chair and said:
"North Dakota offered her three
times Governor to thc party, believ
ing him to be the strongest running
mate for Governor Wilson that could
be named. We made the best fight
we could for him until realizing that
we were beaten. Therefore we with
draw his name, assuring this conven
tion that wherever there ls a fight
for Democratic votes next fall, Gov
ernor John E. Burke will be found in
the thick of lt."
The speaker thereupon moved to
make the nomination of Governor
Marshall unanimous. Immediately a
wild scramble for the doors followed,
few walting to hear tho motion put.
Several seconds later Chairman
James' gavel fell at 1. HI a. m. on the
final adjournment of one of the most
notable conventions In the history ot*
the Democratic party.
William J. Bryan remained a cen
tral figure to the last. A short time
before adjournment bo spoke his
"valedictory," as he called It, trans
ferring the party's standard to the
shoulders of Governor Wilson. The
respectful attention which the speech
received and the applause at its con
clusion were tributes to his loader
A large number of delegates left
the city after tho nomination of Gov
ernor Wilson yesterday' afternoon
without waiting for Hie final session.
Those who remained showed the re
lief they felt that the fight was over
and a spirit ol' hilarity prevailed
among them.

j Columbia, July f>.-J. Sumter
: Moore, who for the past seventeen y
years has been in the cotton mill
' business, has opened an office in Co-J
lumbia, and this fall will begin buy
ing long staple upland cotton. Mr.
Moore is the first cotton buyer in
South Carolina to turn his attention
exclusively to the buying of upland
1 long staple. Ile will buy independ
ently, and not for any special firm.
Next season it is expected that,
more upland long staple cotton will
j bc produced than the South Caro
j lina mills, which consume about 25,
000 hales of this high grade cotton,
can use. This will leave about 60,
; OOO or 75,000 hales to be sold In the
\ North and shipped abroad. Tho up
I land long staple ls a crop which re
! quires very careful attention, but in
j the end repays the farmer who plants
lt and cultivates it intelligently.
I Since the boll weevil began to make
Inroads in the cotton crop of the
Mississippi Delta, there has been a
growing demand for the upland long
Btaple, which ls about the same
length as the cotton grown there.
Say Organized Devolution Ended.
101 Paso, Texas, July 5.-Organ
ized revolution in Mexico has been
broken up by tho defeat of the rebel
army, and in its place has been sub
stituted guerilla warfare, which
threatens widespread damage In
Northwestern Mexico. lt ls possible,
however, that the rebel chief. Oroz
[.o, can gather his disorganized
forces and again put up a semblance
ol' opposition to the government, hut
it will not be for some time.
Part of tho rebel army is now
marching on Juarez, across tho
river from bore, but it is expected
they will eventually go to Casas
Grandes, where the next battle, If
any occurs, will be fought.
The Federal army is greatly re
tarded in its pursuit of the revolu
tionists by the destruction of miles
of railroad i rack which will take
three days to repair.
