Describes. Effect of Several
Speeches Mac(e at Conven
tion Yesterday
"(Copyright, 1920, by W. J. Bryan)
(Written for Universal Service)
CHICAGO. Juno 11. This has been
a sure-enough convention day. The
candidates were presented in conven
tion speeches. The outstanding fea
ture of the day approached almost a
political scandal. Tho partisan estate
of the late President Roosevelt was
administered upon and it was found
that he was wedded to two Republi
can candidates, each claiming his ,
mantle by a -vvlll duly executed.
When General Wood's name was
presented. Mi's. Robinson, Colonel
Roosevelt's sister, seconded the nom
ination and her speech was one of the
real hits of- tho day. In manner,
thought, language and arrangement of
her argument she measured up to the
most exacting rules of oratory. She
left the audience under tho Impres
sion that General Wood was the only
real heir to the lato ex-president and
dialled to all his political assets.
Then Came Wheeler.
Then came Mr. Wheeler, who pre
sented tho name of Senator Johnson.
He quoted from a written document to
snow that Colonel Roosevelt regarded
Senator Johnson as his political next
of kin and the one to whom the pro
gressives should look as the successor
of the sago of oyster Bay.
The verdict had not yet been re
turned at tne time wo go to press, but
the balloting shows that the Jury
stands about two to one in favor of
tlie colonel's sister's choice.
The nominating speeches were not,
as a rule, a success, possibly because
the speakers over-estimated the neces
sity tor a thorough exhibit of the can
didates' record.
Public Knows Men.
This is not an unusual mistake and
It probably has moie effect on the
gallery than on the delegates. The
public can bo assumed to be acquaint
ed with men who3c names are present
ed for this high office, and the nomi
nating speeches would bo more effec
tive if it were moro brief. After a
few minutes, the audience gets rest
less and the speaker is apt to be Inter
lupted with cries of "name him."
liven so veteran a politician as Gov
ernor Allen of Kansas lessened the cf
tcctivcncss of his appeal by extending
it unnecessarily.
Tlie Wood supporters would have
been Just as demonstrative had it bopn
half as long.
Mr. Wheeler, who put Senator John
son in nomination, aroused opposition,
not only by the length of his speech
but also by the tone. He presented
some unpalatable truths and ho did
not take the precaution to sugar-coat
them. Me was defiant rather than
persuasive, but possibly he felt that
persuasion would bo wasted on the
delegates, to whom he addressed his
Willis Good Speaker.
Ex-Governor Willis of Ohio made
b far the best nomination speech of
the day.
He has a fine voice and is an ex
perienced speaker. He began by a
trick of expression that always catches
a convention audience. He assured
the delogales that Ohio would cast her
vote for the Republican nominee, no
matter what his name or the stato
from which he came.
This is one of those pre-election
prophecies which always takes with a
partisan gathering.
As Governor Willis comes from
Ohio, many probably recall that an
other prominent Ohioan made a very
taking convention speech about forty
years ago. In the convention of 1SS0
General Garfield presented I lie name
of Senator Sherman so eloquently that
he was nominated himself. This kind
of history may repeal itself at any
Tho seconding, speeches were, as a
rule, more effective than tlie nominat
ing speeches, parti duo to the fact
that speakers are more apt to be epi
grammatic when their time is limit
ed. Mr. McNeil of Michigan, who
seconded tho nomination of Senator
Johnson, made a very favorable im
pression. He Is a young man and his
stylo marks him as an orator with a
Congressman Schall of Minnesota

. NEW YORK, June 12. Fifth ave
nue, street of millions, Is going to try
legally to subdue Third avenue, street
of poverty, and. In. the process, more
soiled linen Is going to bo hung ou
to air in public than America has seen
in many a day.
And all because Third avenuo is go
ing to be represented by beautiful and
brilliant Mary Casey Thorne, "the
belle of the great east side." who mar
ried .Joe Wolfe Thorne, scion of the
famous millionaire Thorne family,
only to bo cast aside subsequently by
her distinguished "in-laws" and hus
band. "Millions vs. Rights."
"That's what this contest between
my husband and me lor the posses
sion of our child simmers- down to,"
declared the former, Mary Casey,
daughter of John and Bridget Casey,
who first saw tho light of day besido

ernor Coolidge, and Mrs. J. W. Mor
rison, who soconded tho nomination
of Mr. Hoover. The former's speech
was -a rhetorical gem. Tho lattcr's
speech was very impressive.
Hoover Demonstration.
The demonstration for Mr. Hoover
was very different from that which
loilowcd the presentation of tho names
of the three leading candidates.
General Wood, Governor Lowden
and Senator Johnson had friends
among the delegates and they raised
quite a commotion when these can
didates were presented, but the
Hoover demonstration was confined to
the gallery. The scarcity of delegates
participating was easily explained
when the ballot showed only seven
votes cast for him. But tho gallery
i made up for any lack of enthusiasm
,on the first floor. Tho chair had dif
I riculty in bringing tho demonstration
to an end.
Shower of Feathers.
I In tills connection it is interesting
to note the preparation that Is some
j times made lor a demonstration. When
General Wood's name wag placed bo

jwhlto and blue feathers, with the
name "Wood" stamped on thorn, float
ed down from tho celling. They were
