The Wilson people were taken ut lerly l>y surprise, but cnthuslnstical ly r.ived the suggestion. Then 0 curious situation arose. During ibe weeks preceding tire convention the Wilson delegates hail been urging vJ*at no unit rule bo adopted. At that time they feared that two-thirds of the delegation would decide to vote as a unit for Underwood or some other candidate. I and thus force the Wilson minority !?> j vole against the man they wanted, i Speaker Byrd, among others, nad pro t< ted against any attempt to throt? tle the will of the minority. V> t now Senator .Martin was pro- i , posing to "throttle the will" of the Underwood minority. To bo consls i' in.

The last three named took this stand becKuse of their rrevlous protest against the unit rule, an'l the other twe becnuse It meant destruction of their voles for Underwood.

Senator Bankhead re? leased the friends of Mr. Underwood frcm their pledges, and thanked them for their loyal support. Senator \V. ,f.

Of Boston, withdrew tho] name of Governor Fobs. .lohn J. Fitz? gerald, of New York, said his delega? tion w-as ready to support the choice of tho convention, and moved to make It unanimous. However, there wan objection, and one more hnllot was taken. After all. the Democratic party has not sold tho truth to serve the hour, anil has remained true to the standards set for it by Andrew Jackson In words whlcli hav* been staring the delegates In the face for more than a week.

Mr. Jones j decided not to tftke the time of the body at such a Juncture This declaration comprised a plan j for building up tho merchant marine of the country by r. system of dif? ferentiated tariff duties. Briefly It proposed to mike a lower tariff rate on merchandize brought to the United Btates In American bottoms from coun? tries which have no merchant mnr'ne than on other Imports.

It is news to nie, but what the Senator t,ays goes." Mi Underwood's advice had been that bo was to be given a tryout as tiio third candidate to break thu dead? lock, lie fully expected that action during the day. and when Virginia voted fo.- wiibon he thought a return would be. made to the other car.d'dstes on the stic-roeodng ballot After the bulletin announcing tho withdrawal was received there came a message quoting Senator Bankhead a? say ng that he withdrew Mr. Un its) - Wood's name at tho direction of the Candidate.

"I am not a candidate, do hot want it and would not acvepi it." be an? swered. The suggestion was made that till sentimental groun is tho vice presi? dency nilsht be the stepping stone on wiiich tho South would regain .is position In national politic*. "That is true," said Mr. Underwood, "but If 1 got the nomination and ac? cepted some people would say I had ma le a deal for lt. 1 have made no deal and have tradid with no man. I want my friends to know mis, and I also want them to know that when I get Into a tight I do not quit. I was withdrawn without my knowl? edge and want thoso who helped me to understand it."
