After Lon Content Fobs and Under wood Withdrew Clark's Men Darted StendilyIHInoU Made Break. Baltimore, July 2. On the 48th ballot Governor Wilson wai nomin ated by the Democrats for president. HIa victory waa presaged when the 43d ballot was taken soon after meeting at noon. Wilson who bad only 430. on tbe 4gnd ballot last night Jumped to 602 while Clark fell back from 494 to 329. The Illinois delegation held a raucus and decided this morning to go to Wilson, and this with some scattering votes made the change. On the 44th ballot Wilson Jumped to 629 and Clark .dropped to 308. On the 45th Wilson had 633 and Clark still 308. Underwood wlch 97, Fobs with 27 and Harmon with 25 were the only followers. The audience and delegates were wild and amid cheers that almost drowned the announcements , Fobs 'and Underwood were : withdrawn. Then it was all over and on the 46th .ballot Wilson was nominated. The happiest man amid tbe 25,000 In the Armory was Mr. Bryan who single-handed has forced the nomina tion of Wilson. But for his deter mined stand and his resolution against Ryan, Belmont and Morgan, the nomination would have gone to Clark last week. The nomination of a vice presi dent will be made and tbe platform adopted tonight and the weary dele gates will start home. .How It Happened. After Underwood and Fobs re leased their delegates withdrawing . in favor of Wilson the crowd knew what would happen. Reed and Francis of Missouri held a conference and Reed announced that Clark's delegates were released. Fitzgerald of New York moved that Wilson be named by acclama tlon, there was one big howl of Joy and the nomination was made.

Opponents of the New Jersey man greeted the decline of his vote with cheers. "Good-bye, , Woodrow,'! wai shouted by Clark men. Many are predicting that . WJson, , trsvlng malls 21s VPttrt arm farterx t land ths prise, will now drop back into ths ruch with Clark.

That failed to start a stampede, and tm lis 42d. baUrt Michigan cxvejck Vfe Ibr President- y)7i SI of fhe"l5"to Clark:- following this National Committeeman Wood announced that on the next ballot the majority of ths delegation would de Bert Wilson. . The reactionary lines are holding with unexpected firmness and the looked for breaks In Illinois and Washington have not materialized. It was drip, srip, drip all day and early In the night for Wilson with as steady a slipping away from Champ Clark. Throughout the early part ot the night, there were no big breaks, except one of 15 in Michigan. But the speaker would lose one vote In one state and two In another, while Wil son would make virtually the same gains. Early In the day the Jumps were larger, but later the changes settled down to two or three or four to a ballot. Clark started with 469 in the morn ing and it was not until the ninth bal lot of the day, tbe first taken in the evening session, that his vote had Bettled to 433, but then the decline seemed impossible of being stopped. Climbing Was Slow, At the same time Wilson, who had started at 406$. had gradually accu mulated strength. On tne first ballot sf the evening, the 39th or tne con vention, he had reached 494. "Four more ballots, however, were required to put him over the 500 mark. The convention became nervous as the balloting proceeded. The Clark men kept hearing reports that Illinois was on the point of breaking away, and every time that the chairman of the delegation shouted "Clark 58", a round of applause came from the speaker's ranks. Cheers greeted the first important break of the evening when Michigan increased Its Wilson vote from 12 to 27. ' Telegrams continued to pour In on the delegates urging the nomination of the New Jersey governor. Clark Back In Baltimore. Clark came to Baltimore In a motor car from Washington. He went to the home of Mayor James H. Preston, where he remained until a late hour at night and then returned to the cap ital. Mayor Preston has a well or ganized boom for vice-president. Ths. purpose of Clark's visit to the mayor Is not known, but until It was known that he had left the city the crowd in ths convention refused to give up hope that he would appear and start something. ' There was a disposition early In the evening to believe that a candidate might be nominated. That hope went glimmering after the Underwood forces, following a poll of their dele gates, announced that, they would "stand pat" and Illinois, which had been reported as wavering, decided that it would not change from Clark. The slow, vacillating rise and fall of the vote of favorite candidates throughout the day had increased the steadily growing bitterness of the last week, and at night a match of offense, touched to the excitement, would have set the entire convention ablaze. It was on this situation that many leaders based hopes of a final vote and a nomination before the night waa over. They argued that the weary delegates, tired by a week of work, would break from tbe hard and fast lines they have been holding and throw enough votes to one of tbe can dldates to end the agony of suspense, Delegates In. Bad Humor. :As the night wore on and ballfiL af ter ballot waa" raven witnotu result, the temper of the delegates grew worse. Every shifting vote, every demand for the poll of a delegate awakened the bitterness that lay be neath the proceedings. Hisses, half hearted cheers and Jeers greeted ths few changes in each succeeding bal lots. , This1 spirit was also shown at times la ths audience, and the police were forced to remove offenders who bv came Involved in quarrels. Ths length of aha da4lock is now problematic ' ".... The Clark men say that they can and will prevent the nomination of Wilson. They say that while he may reach 660, that figure will bs his ab solute bigh -mark and ' that,' ones reached, Wilson, like Clark, will slide back. ' The Undorwood forces are likely to hold the balance of power for 24 hours. They have lost only two ot the solid delegates, they being ths Florida delegates who broke away. . - The leaders all agreed at midnight that ths deadlock was still very much In force and apne would Tent&re any Missouri Delegation Displayed a Ban ner Which Infuriated Bryan. THREE FIST FIGHTS AT ONCE Howling, Angry Mob, Finally Brought Partly to Order Police to Arrest Ntxt Man Entering Hall With Any Banner. Baltimore. July 2. At ths close of tbe 33rd ballot of the Democratic con vention late In ths afternoon a num ber of Missouri delegates arose and unfurled a long white streamer upon which wss painted: "I have known Champ Clark . 18 years. He is absolutely Incorruptible and bis life Is above reproach. Never in all of these years have 1 known him to be upon but one side of a ques tion and that was the side that repre pnted ths DeoDle W. J. Bryan in 1910." The display was the signal tor Clark demonstration that started at 4:25 o'clock. 0 "Take It over where Bryan can see it." called 'a delegate. 4Take It to Nebraska." Tbe men with the banner marched to the left side of the hall and Bryan, pushed by a crowd of friends and aided by the police, rushed angrily to the stand. "Take It Away." "Take lt-away,"-was all he would flv. Hla face was red with rage. He complained to John E. Lamb of In diana, who was in the chair, of the Indignity. A riotous scene followed. "Fold up that banner," commanded the sergeant-at-arms "Roll it up," chorused a crowd that mounted the speaker's stand and stood on the tables. Bryan came back down the steps from the platform and became the center of a pushing, shouting demonstration-mad mob that almost swept him from his feet. Foi six minutes the demonstration naa raged when Bryan saw the futility 01 . - . . . onJ ...a ni.tfnm. Th hnnnei iciumcu u i.u'o 1""" . tnkpn to thfl nress stand. A news- paper man waa thrown from the stand Into the aisle. Three fights took place In the stand in less than a minute Police charged down the stairs of the stand into the fighting, shouting mob.

He made a strong and heated statement of his position to the gallerles and then announced the vote. While he announced it Bryan stood by his side, looking for an opening for a speech. Theodore E. Bell of Call fornia. who came behind him to ask a question, got the floor. "The gentleman from Nebraska rises to a question of personal privilege, said the chairman. "He will state it. Then the chair will decide wnetner ne has a rignt to speaK upon it or not. Mr unamnan. 1 was seatea w.. my delegation when a banner was plLed in front of us," said Bryan.

Those who are interested in the matter feel that the reputation of Dickinson county for good roads will In a measure de pend upon the condition he tourists find the route through here when they arrive. After the recent rains the roads will need dragging and it is probable that the drags will be busy putting the roads in fine con dition and making , Dickinson coun ty's reputation good before the visi tors.
