Saoa muutlnotu demonstrations la aaiax of the nominees of a national caarantfcm hare never been equaled paakasa In the history of polities in this cotmtry. It was a love feast, a ratification meeting. There km a line setting for to-day's speetaewtar drama. Bright peonies at oltlMr ead of the stage made two bOs of color. Throughout the vast Btwitftad fans roored ceaselessly to and fro like the wings of a crowd of alarmed gulls beating the air. There were no preliminaries. The wrangle expected over the question of reducing the representation in the South was avsirted by the withdrawal of ex-Senator Quay's proposition. The great ball became quiet as Senator Lodge, standing before 15,000 anger faces, gavel la band, announced that nominations for President or the Unites' States were in order. The reed-lug clerk advanced to the front of the platform. He was about to call the roll of States for the presentation of candidates. When Alabama was called a thin, red-whiskered delegate from that Staifc wow and aurretiaereu the first right to speak to Ohio. A flutter of handkerchiefs tilled the air. and cheer after cheer went up from the delegates la the ilt as Senator Foraker of Ohio, the Weal of militant Republicanism, strode toward the platform. Foraker It a grand-looking man, with something of the iinperiousuess of Blaine about him. The air was surcharged rtth electricity as ho mounted the stops, and when he turned about, standing there with gray eyes calmly sweeping the sheering thousands the magnetic orator must have been conscious of nls power to cnll up a storm that would sweep through the amphitheater. Below, about him, on either side wore banked men and women almost frantically waving hats, handkerchiefs aad pampas plumes. In full view of the convention, he stood orect, his face ,as Inflexible as though chiseled in marble, waiting for the applause to cease. When quiet was restored he began to speak. It was not yet noon, but the sun was biasing through the roof. shooUng darts and arrows into all parts of the hall. With resonant, ringing voice and graceful gesture Foraker ntlUofi the noise. Kven the pages and attendants crouched down as they at the orator. He begun to cnll up the hurricane from the start. Whenever he raised his arms aloft the whistling of the gale ran around the hall. Wh?a he said the nomination had been made, that Wolcott and Txigr and the platform had each in turn named his candidate, a great cheer -went up. When he said his candidate was the choice of ever- awn who desired Republican success' in November tho roar was like the rush of a heavy sea through a rocky cavern. The orator was silenced by his own words. Then lu began again, speaking ns fOW men can. His uudtonco was thrilled. They sat like men undor a gl)tjll, lie dropped a woru noro. a wuru fthttr, like sparks upou a sun-dried stubble, aad when he concluded by placing McKInley in nomination not on behalf of Ohio, but of all the States and Territories clap of thunder shook the building. The previous of the storm wore but the rustle of a summer night's breese. For a moment he leaned over tho platform as if to satisfy himself that his work was accomplished. Then, seeing that tho work had beau successful, he re-4 tired to the rear of the stage. Tho sight was a grand and inspiring one. In the pit the delegates and alternates were cheering enthusiastically. Over the acres of spectators bedlam reigned. Tho hall was an angry sea of tossing color. Flags, red. white and i blue, plumes shot up as if by magic to Brest the waves. Hats were lifted aloft on eanes. Umbrellas were hoisted and twisted until they resembled whirling dervishes. On the press platform the newspaper men, with watches out, were counting the minutes, on the 3tagc Senator Hanna. his handkerchief. In one hand, a fan in the other, was spurring the vast assemblage to new- endeavors. The raging storm did not seeta to satisfy him. He seized a plume ncd whirled it about his head like .general leading hts men to the charge. - ' All nt once a delegate, bearing the standard of Kentucky, rushed forward 'UK the stag Tbe & vras maglcsL n standards of the States were torn loo&u and yelling delegates climbed uion the ,,., WftAM to rauy arounu tnr eaucr.

Chairman Lodge began to rap for order, bat the ring of Me imvll mM at m avail. A del- ! gate vita Ohio s standard in his hand, dove down into the main aisle and went careening toward the rear to the music of "Joan Brown's Body Lies ia tho Grave." The bearers of the standards of the other States plunged after, him. Down the aisle they swung, starting the whole storm afresh. When they reached the main entrance tbey were met by men holding aloft a gigantic elephant with the national colors twined about his neck. Then the procession eanve back and circled the pit. For several minutes this parade continued. The demonstration, aH told, lasted exactly 15 minutes. In length of time It does not compare with the prolonged cheer which went up for Grant in 18S0 or Blaine in 1JSS. or for McKInley ia 1S96. It is also surpassed in length ol time by demonstrations at Democratic conventions. This protracted outburst was but the forerunner of the pandemonium that reigned a moment later when Roosevelt, the man of the hour, mounted the platform to seeond the President's nomination. When the comention caught sight of bhn it went off again like a rocket. As he stood there facing the yelling multitude, the roar could have been heard for blocks. Teddy looked about him while he waited for the storm to subside. Several times he raised his hand, but the cheering continued. Ills stern, square jaw was firmly set as he surveyed the scone. Only once did his face relax. That was when he caught sight of his wife, who sat in the reserved seats overhanging tho pit on his right Then he smiled till his teeth showed, and Mrs. Roosevelt fluttered back her handkerchief. When Anally he was allowed to begin he plunged directly to the, heart of bis subject ia the impetuous way which the people so much admire. His statement was that he rose to second the nomination of William JTcKinley. who had faced more problems than any President since Lincoln. The convention got on its feet, and it was several minutes before he could proceed. Ever' movement and every word was characteristic of the man. He looked, spoke and acted like one giving directions to an army about to go Into battle, and nothing would content him but to storm the heights as he did at Santiago. ..oosevelt Is no master of the foil, t.e prefers the broadsword, and as be laid about him with sledgehammer blows the multitude went wild with A Nebraska delegate shouted: "Hit 'em again!" He had the manuscript of his speech In his hand and referred to it" occasionally, dlscanliiig page after page as he finished, until the platform at his feet was strewn with white sheets. When he reached his peroration and with a world of infinite scorn in his voice, asked if America was a weakling to shrink from the world'work of the world powers, tho whole pit echoed "No!" in chorus. When he concluded and resumed his seat In the New York delegation, the oVher delegates rushed forward and surrounded him. Many embraced him, and it seemed for a moment as if they would lift him tb their shoulders. Senator Thurston, the Demosthenes of the Senate, John W. Yerkes, an orator from the Blue Grass State, and Governor Mount of Indiana, also sec onded McKInley's nomination, but be fore the latter concluded tho convention was impatient for a votti, and several times tried to howl him down. Then the roll of "States was called, and delegation after delegation rose In solid blocks and cast their votes for When Chairman Lodge made the announcement that the President had been renominated" for the term beginning March 4. 1901, there was the same wild storm which had been raised by j Foraker. and when It was over Roosevelt's nomination for the doncv evoked a succession of similar J ,. . 1 .!... ...M, l, e - unuvitauvu?. Lafe -Young, who was with Roosevelt in Cuba.-nominated him on behalf of the State which had originally come to Philadelphia for Dolliver. His nomination, was seconded by Delegate Sturray of Secretary Long's State, and Delegate Ashton of Washington, who came hero for Bartlett Tripp. Dopew wound up the oratory oa behalf of the State which declared for Woodruff. Dopew's speech aroused e j most intense enthusiasm when he pictured the dazzling dreams of the country's future. During every pause the band played but one air, the tune which Colonel Roosevelt had heard in the trenches before Santiago. At 2:14 o'clock the convention, which had done the unparalleled thing of nominating both the candidates for President - and Vice-President in one day unanimously, adjourned. SKETCHES OF THE BEPUBLICAN" 2f OMINSES. As the strong, unswerving leader and champion of the cause of protection o American industries and American homes. William McKinley needs no introduction to the American veople. Truly has it been said of him that his life has been typical of all that Is 1est In the self-made American, his career one that affords stimulus' and inspiration to the youthful brain and sinew of our country. No better Incentive to ambition la the American youth, n6 matte how-humble his origin, can be found in thG lives of the public men of to-day than in that of William McKinley.

He waa re-elected to the Forty-sixth, Ferry-seventh and Forty-eighth Congresses, but late In the session of thp Forty-eighth the Democratic House gave his seat to his contestant In 1SS4 be was elected io the Forty-ninth Congress and re-elected to the Fiftieth and Fifty-first In IS89 he became chairman of the Committee ( on Ways and Means, and had charge of the tariff billivhich received his name. In JS90 he was defeated for re-election, and the nest year wa elected Governor of Ohio. He was reelected in 1893, retired .from Office-January 1. 1S96; on June IS, 1896, was nominated for President, and elected November 3, 1S96, by an overwhelming majority. This is an outline of the political history of William McKinley, toe President of the United States, and whom the Republican party .has seen fit to honor with a nomination for a second term. President Mcxvinley's character Is I moat admirable from whichever side it is viewed. His devotion to his invalid wife has been an object lesson to -the homes of the nation. Major McKinley's devotion to his wife has not only helped make her stronger and able to fulfill many of the social duties devolving upon the mistress of the White Kous but it has also made him stronger ami happier, because he.Jtas carried the sunshine of his hfef!Ai8B. heart, ami allowed it to shine brlgil&& in his own home. The record made by President and on which he stands for the suffrages of tae American people for the second time is one that has brought prosperity, glory and greatness to the nation. Tho protective policy of which he is the father has set hununia g every wneel of American factories. His policy of expansion has created a market for American products ihathas made Uncle Sam the commercial giant -of the world. He has conducted the nationthrough a vwnr that has set millions of serfs of Spain free and g.iven them the blessings of a Govern a teat under the Stars and Stripes. His financial policy has established the credit of the United States on an unassailable basis among the great powers of the earth. The Ideal American. Theodore Roosevelt, the Republican candidate for Vice-President, Is one of tho finest types of American, citizenship that tills country possesses. He is in the vigor of young manhood, having celebrated his 40th birthday on October 27. He was graduated from Harvard University in 1SS0, and began the study of law. In the fall of 1SS1 he was elected to the Assembly from the .Twenty-first district 'of New York city, and was twice re-elected," serving in the Legislatures of 1SS2, 1SS3 and 1SS4. He was for a time leader of tho minority, and devoted himself with energy and success to reform legislation. Among the measures for th& passage of which New York city Is his debtor were those abolishing the fees In the office of the Register and County Clerk and the abolition of the power of the Board of Aldeimen to confirm or reject the Mayor's nimnintmnnfL Fte was chair man of tho noted legislative investigating committee which in three weeks brought to light many of "the abuses existing In the city government in the early SO's. Still another important service rendered by Mr. Roosevelt was the securing of the passage of the civil ser- Lvice reform law of 1SS4. Ho was throughout his legislative career a warm friend of labor interests, aad among other measures put the I tenement cigar factory bsu through tae Legislature, and induced Governor Cleveland to sign it . In 1SS6 he was the Republican candidate for Mayor, but was defeated by Abram S. Hewitt by 22,000 plurality. In 1SS9 he- was appointed by President Harrison a member of. the United States Civil Service Commission,' and was TeUined by President Cleveland. His, ability and rugged honesty in the administration of the affairs of that offiee greatly helped to streEgthen his hold on popular regard. From May, 1S95, Xo April, 1S97, he was president of the Police Board ct New York city. He found the administration of affairs in a demoralised condition, bat the same energetic methods that had characterized all his work, the same uncompromising honesty that is the most prominent note in his. character, 1 when applied to police affairs, soon brought ihi administration of the department to a high degree of efficiency. From his New York oflice.hQ -was cnlled by President McKinley oa April 6. 1SS7, to be Assistant Secretary of Navy.

His address comprised a. recital of the organization and work of the San Francisco association for six years. Mr. Dohrmann described the struggles of the merchants better class of people of San Francisco for the new charter, and advised the merchants here not to allow the politicians to gain control of the municipal government. Gebrge""W. Smith called the meeting to order and introduced Mr. Dohrmann as a gentleman well known in San Fraaciseo and president of the Mer- chants' Association. He w&3 well post ed on the objects and benefits to be derived from a merchants' association and on other subjects that the speaker might desire to discuss. Mr. Dohmnann said that he was glad to address those present as fellow aot only as feihjw American ns, but as leiiow Hawaiian citizens. He had been here only a short time, but he had found So much to admire that he felt that he was a Hawaiian citizen. He had, however, owing to the magnitude of tho country and its interests, only a superficial Idea 01 the conditions that etShere. He felt that thxe preasa "cere iaote capable 6 information than he was. He Lad found in Hawaii a very intslligtjit public and an e.YceUent.ja3nsiiiiitignal government ,reoper took; pride In public affairs and were extremely charitable. Priorjo his coming he had heard much about the hospitality of the Hawaiian people. It was this hospitality which made it so charming for the stranger, and he regretted extremely his approaching departure. The same, or similar, conditions that existed in San Francisco did not exist here, and it would be difficult to apply conditions here which the community were, fortunately, free from. San Francisco had had a municipal government for 50 years. Forty years the municipality had been governed by laws passed by the Legislature and the machinations of party machines. Twenty years San Francisco had-been directly under boss rule. Even the sacred positions of teachers could not be obtained without money. The better class of citizens almost despaired of ever .having clean municipal government. Hawaii had had, undoubtedly, its drawbacks in the past It had passed through a period of history which had not a parallel. When the conations in San Francisco were contrasted with those existing in Hawaii the people here bad almost a perfect government There was a sentiment here, which he was glad to see, that it was an honor to fill an office. -Ho would ask that this sentiment be preserved. There was too much of a. OhtfosiUon to find fault with our public men. A man in office might ; desire to do right, but (he laws would be against him. Ho might wish to be progressive, but there would be no money in the Six years ago the Merchants Association of San Francisco was formed. The Board of Trade and tho Chamber of Commerce were la existence at the time. The Board of Trade looked after financial matters and settled, cases. The Chamber of Corn-' merce looked after tho harbor and har bor improvements and legislation. Prior to the organization of the Merchants' Association there was no organization to look after municipal affairs and mercantile interests properly. The speaker, prior to the "of the San Francisco organization, was a member of the Alameda Im provement Association, which had done I excellent worit in that town, and largely through its efforts had doubled real estate values. There were at first only 40 firms represented. Now the association numbered 1200 firms. The association protects the entire mercantile interests of the community, having enlarged Its scope. Jt beiieved in co-operating with that powerful and agency, the press. It wasan unwritten, law of the association that no director should hold public oface. From a small beginning, with a discarded desk aad a volunteer secretary, the association now had rooms in the Mills building and employed a. paid. secretary and a paid superintendent. It had number of Important committees i oastantly at work, including a tomoittee pn pnbiic affairs and a committee on .publicity and promotion.

The superintendent of the assoeiatbin. looked after all cases of charity, which prevented imposition on its members. Several serious difficulties anions partners had bean amicably settled by the association without the troubles being aired in court. The greatest achievement of all was the fight for the new charter. Four different charters had been framed for the government of San Francisco, and tey had been defeated by the politicians. Some flaw to arouse the publie was discovered ami greasy magnified. cf lwO citizens to frame a charter. Ex treme people, as wen as conservatives, were placed on this committee. The charter was drafted. It contained salient features home rule, a business administration and civil-service reform. The politicians said: "We can't give you eivil service reform. We must have the ofilces for the boys." The Democrats, Republicans and Populists were'all arrayed against the charter. We had only one paper that fought for It We elected our freeholders to pasi'on the charter. Then the charter was submitted to the people for their adoption. It was adopted, and this, too, lu spite of all this opposition. Then we got it through the Legislature. tIt was attacked in the courts andibsequontly by injunction suits. Yef the charter stood. Mr. Dohrmann advised his hearers not to let the politicians get hold of the municipal government "Keep party politics out of municipal affairs," said he. Mr. Dohrmann closed by reciting the following lines, written by him to a member of his lamily: WUl whnt's rtgbt tor Ukmo around you. They in tara will wish qk welt.

The Difficulty Encountered in Getting ilen for' the Government Service in -Honolulu. Revenue Agent Bert Thomas now in Honolulu, has written Robert Towne, one of the agents in San Francisco, that is difficult to obtain men for the government service in this city. The Government offers all the way from $1,000 to $1,400 a year for the positions, but there are no competent takers. There are a number of men willhiir to thetake positions,bnt they are notquuH; fled to fill the offices. Mr. Thomas the salaries paid, very ordinary men in the shipping houses and stores are much larger thau tho allowance made by the Government. The expenses are also greater than in the United States. If a mau wraits to go a few blocks he takes a cab or n bus rather tbau become uneasy from the heat. The hotels charge $4. a day, and board in private homes is also high. The people now in the internal revenue service have no desire to rush, and when they are fold, to do bomething the invariable answer is "All right; tomorrow." The internal reeaae office will main in charge of Robert N. I rick, chief dopnty under Collector Lynch, tintil the first o August probably. Mr, Haywood, who was appointed Collector of Internal Revenue, has not yet filed his bond in Washington. He most have his bond accepted by tho department before he takes office. Mr. Frick will remain in charge till Mr. Haywood's bond shall be acepted. . s SUIT BROUGHT AGAINST NUTTING. Startling Allegations 3Iade oy the "Worthingtca Corporation in 'Injunction Proceedings..
