Tho endowment of Mr. llrynn mid tho tabling of tho motion callltiR for thu resignation of Mi Sullivan camo at the cUxo of 11 most exciting session of tho convention In which thoro wuro several lights and throughout which confusion reigned uitnriiinii. I Thu commltteo 011 resolutions lo .cllnwl to report a plank calling for 'the resignation of Sullivan and the debate followed tiion a motion made .by Judge Owen Thomisiou of Jackson ivllle, oalllng for Sulllvnnls resignation. It had been agreed that each sldi should have forty-live minutes In which to represent its Hide of tne 'can- and Judge Thompson was the first advocate of tho ouuse of Mr. 'llrynn. He allowed his feelings to carry him pomuwlint tu an oxt rem and nroiiHod thu hostility of Sullivan's frlfiuls by thu unsparing manner in , which ho dwelt upon the last Demo cratic conference at Sprlnglle'd. He strode up mid down thu platform, his (face white with wroth nnd his form shaking with thu Iritomlty of his feel fill,'- His caustic criticism finally lost him the ear of the convention, and hu might novor huve been nble to con elude his speech If Sullivan hud not personally requested quiet. I Sullivan, who followod Thompson, .and who was thu first speaker in lib own behnlf, declared that thu ear of Mr. llrynn had been po'sono.1 against him nnd thai the demand for thu resignation sprang from personal ( enemies. (ireat feeling was displayed on lioih sldcH during tho dobntu and at Union personalities of a dlsngreenblo charnc ,tor wuru Indulged In by various spoukurs. I The uud came on n motion mado by ex-Coiigressmmi Kern of llelluvlllc, I hat tho request for the resignation of Sullivan be Inld on tho table. I Feeling during tho roll call on this proposition ran very high. Tho votes of jiovorol counties were challenged nml tho delemto from Warren county declnrod that the voto from tho county had been doilberatoly garbled. When all those dllllcultle's had been strulghtonod out the vote was declared to be as glvon above Tho rojiort of tho committee on ros- olutlons was read by ox-Congressman Kern. A Inrge jiart of the platform was directed to state Imuefc. Thu revision of the present tariff laws was demanded. The use of Inrgo campaign funds for tho "corruption of electors" whs denounced and the IKtswige of a law preventing contribu tions to campaign funds by Insurance coniKinl(i was urged. The recent congress was donouncod for Its surrender to tho meat trust, railway and Standard Oil company. The onrly establishing' by thu Unit oil States of the postal savings ail was urged. Tho eight-hour law nnd anti-Injunction law nskod from con gross by the laboring men wore de clared to bo doslred and their cimct mout Is urged.

A plank In the platform whlci rv colvod much npplnuso was lhi de claring in favor of govo.-.iuuutiil ownership of tulograph mil tel j mij linos, Tho llrynn resolution came last nnd was worded na follows: "For president of the United SWioi the Demccrats of Illinois havo but one cho.co mid that man Is Wll'lmn jointings llrynn. "In this period of oiliclul hypocrisy, political corruption and cowardly .sur render of priuclplos to expediency whenever Ucnubilcaulsm holds swny. William Jennings Uryan towers above all Americans as fl:tent to W-ad In tb. 1kM to rescue our goveiumest from 'he hinds of special interests and re atore It. to all tho people. The Democ racy of Illinois vagerly looks forward to jettis for tne opportunity to join with her sister states In nominating and triumphantly electing him prosl dent or the United States. "Tne time coils lor n president 01 Mr. Uryun's honesty and sincerity." The reading of the resolution brought forth torrlllc applause. At t e end of Its rending Mr. Kern announced that n resolution had toen submit (til to the committee calling upon National Committeeman Sullivan to resign. The committee had declined to embody It In thea report, but It a-vi been agreed that the resolution shou'd be presented on thu Hour and each side allowed forty-llvo mlnutos for dis cussion. The first speaker was Judge Owen ThoniMKMi of Jacksonville, who rend the Sullivan resolution, -. follows: "Itesolved, That this convention hereby request that National Commit teemnn lteger C. Sullivan resign his position." Tho Instant the rending wnB con eluded pandemonium broko loose In the convention. There were loud cries of "No, No," 'Hurrah for Sullivan The uproar continued for several mln 'He. It was finally stilled by the chair num. aided by John S. cooper of Chi csgo, who asked that Judge Thomp son be given mi opportunity to speak, saying that the cheering could be dctid tomorrow. Judge Thompson declared at the out et that Judging by tho npplnuso for Milllvnn and cat cnlls for others, thnt ertnln men In the convention "had taken part lit the outrages of the Inst ihniocratlc state convention," bitterly irrnlvnlng those who took pert In them. He declared thnt Mr. Uryan had hk I the resignation of Mr. Sullivan ami anl: 'In the face o. this, are you going to Indors llrynn? Ceitalnly, "Yes. yes," came from ill parts of the hall. J idle Thompson continued to dwei ! 1 wnat ho called tho outrages of ...c last convention and the confusion became so great that Sullivan finally appealed to thu delegates to give Judge rttumpKou n hearing. The utmost con fusion, however, prevailed throughout his speech. When no had concluded Honor Sul llvmi took the plntform in his own defense. Ho was greeted with tho most tumultuous applause. He said In opening: "You have witnessed the spectacle on this jilatfcriii of mi Individual who came hero to gratify his porsonnl urnilgc mi. drag It Into this conven tlun. He cumu hure to gratify his wplccn, hatred nnd mallco. " "Yoiir'e a liar," came from tho uti page delegation. Instantly n Sullivan delogatc sprang for the speaker nnd it tcok u half dozen policemen to stop tho fight. Order was finally restored and Mr. Sullivan concluded his nu uress by declaring tunt if hu woh not wanted as national committeeman the matter could be adjusted two yours from now. Judge J 0110 J. Ulnck of Tnswoll spoke In the Interest of harmony, de claring if Judge Thompson or Mr. Sullivan htood In tho way of Demo cratic success they should roslgn any liosltlon they might hold. Ho then supported tho nntl-Sulllvnn resolution. Ho dclnred tho convention stultified Itself by Indorsing llrynn nnd thon asking him to rely in Illinois on a man 'identltled with eorpornto Intorosts. He nssertod It to be for tho best Inter ests of tho Democratic party for Sul livan to resign. Frank 1 Chllds of Chicago spoe In favor of Sullivan, eulogizing him In the highest mnnnor. Congressman Itnlney declared that the resolution calling upon Sulllvnn to resign was couched in the most modest mnnnor, nnd 'simply called niton him to take his place In the ranks until sucn tlmo ns tho Demo cratic iwrty again sees fit to placo 11 1 111 in n position of authority. Ux-Congrossmtin T. J. Kern closed the debate by speaking against the antl-Sulllvan resolution. Mr. Sulllvnn closed his remarks by moving thnt tho nntl-Sulllvan resolu tion be laid on the table. The roll call proceeded amid tho greatest confusion. Tho result showed In favor of putting the motion on the taule 1.08S, ngnlnst the motion to ta ble 670, not voting 51.
