Saoa muutlnotu demonstrations la

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

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.

placing McKInley in nomination not

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

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

cheer which went up for Grant in 18S0

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

teeth showed, and Mrs. Roosevelt fluttered
back her handkerchief. When

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.

most intense enthusiasm when he pictured

Colonel Roosevelt had heard in the
trenches before Santiago.

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.

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

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
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

Mr. Dohrmann ts a pleasing I
the assertion asimed the selection
taming speaker. 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

Lad found in Hawaii a very intslligtjit

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.

School, which politicians tried
to take away from San Francisco.
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.

On motion of George W. Smith, a
voe of thanks was tendered Mr. Dohrmann
for his instructive address.
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.
