It was on this situation that many of the loaders based a hope of a Until voto end nomination before the night : was over. Thev argued that tho Weary d< legates, tried by a week of work, would break from the hard and fast lines they have been holding and throw enough votes to one of tho candidates to end tho cgony of suspense. Others contended that the situation tnado im , possible an agreement on nny one of tho candidates now before the conven? tion. They pointed to to-day's phy rdoai clash botween th? Clark and Wil? son forces as an evidence that tho feeling between the two was so hitter 1 that neither would allow enough votes to go to the other nominee. The Wilton forces. however, en couraged by their steady gains through the day, were optimistic. They as? serted that in time they would secure a majority of the convention, and that then, the delegates, ready to do almost ? anything to end the struggle, would tlock to the YV'ison standard. Another attempt to reach some sort of an agreement among the leaders ; failed to-night. Tho so-called "conservatives" were in conference. National Chairman 1 Norman 13. Mack. Charles F. Murphy, of Tammany Hall. Colonel George liar v< y, Representative Fitzgerald, ot New York, and Rogor C. Sullivan, of Illi? nois, dined together. After tho talk Chatvman Mack declared that every on" seemed to be "sitting t'glit." "I do not believe either Wilson or Clark ran be nominated now," " de? clared Mr. Mack Just before the con? vention Avas colled to order. The gnlierlcs wero crowded as the . time grew near for tho calling of Ute I roll for the thirty-fifth ballot. They had been thrown open to the general public snd the public took advantage! of the occasiou. Tho calling of the session was de- ? laved by the failure of the leaders to | arrive. Chairman James did not rcren the stnd unt'l S:?n. A moment later ? he dropped his gavel and prayer was offered by the Rev. Clayton H. Ranrk. 1 Chairman .Tames then ordered the | roll called for the thirty-fifth ballot. The rumored break In Illinois?did I not occur. Its fifty-eight stayed solid | with Clark. j The break in the Michigan delega? tion came according to schedule. Th? .. Ilson '.eieg.ues cheered as the vote was announced: "Wilson. 27; Clark, ? 3.;', This ?rave Wilson fifteen additional votes, taking them from the Clark column. The steady rratn wht?h Wilson hnd been making all day continued on the th'rty-ftfth ballot, 'the New Jersey Governor securing fifteen votes net.

Speaker Clark received only 4331-2 I votes on this ballot, his low mark since 1 the beginning of the contest. On the I first ballot he received 440 1-2 votes, | and hilt vote |nc reas'ed slowly until the tenth ballot, when it bounded upward as the result of New York's ninety votes going to him in a body. After he received a majority vote, however. Iiis forces struck a stone wall In the opposition of Mr. Bryan. Mr. Clark's oposltion openly boasted that the Mls strength would disintegrate rapidly from tho point where he had lost a part of Ills opening vole. On the thirty-sixth ballot the change was Immaterial. Clark gained a sin? gle vote and Wilson secured two ad? ditional. The result was: Clark. 134 1-2. Wilson. 40C 1-2. Underwood, 5S 1-2. Harmon, 2i.

The shift of two from i'lnrk to i'nderwood ' was th.- only change on this ballot. H In Connecticut L'nderwood gained four from the Clark column. Whon Florida was called a roll was demand? ed. The on 11 of tho delegates showed ' that of the twelve delegates, two wero for Wilson *\nd ten for Underwood.
