will be a special train, stops at
important points, brass bands,
shooting matches, sweet cider
and other things, and for the first
time the long-haired free silver
friends of Mr. Bryan will be met
on their own ranges to be told
the truths about the Amercian
flag, the American nation and the
American dollar.
In the middle of July the Gov
ernor will take another trip, go
ing this time into the Northwest.
He will attend the National Con
vention of League Clubs at. St.
Paul, Minn., and may on this oc
casion make ; a dash into . North
Dakota, South Dakota, Montana
and- possibly Idaho. Of course,
on this trip he willTbe seen once
or twice in Nebraska.
There was no fight in the con.
vention over anything except tht
honor of making speeches for the
successful candidates. -;.?;.
Quay and ¦ Hanna . made up
their differences and there was no
contest over the Quay resolution
restricting Southern representa
tion in the ' convention. Quay
kindly , abandoned his \ resolution
when. Hanna accepted'Roosevelt;
and, the only danger that con
fronted harmony passed away. '
> Quay, like Platt, emerges from
the convention with much re
nown among his followers. These
two men were the only ones who
played good politics in the con
vention. Platt has the honor of
having nominated Roosevelt
against the deliberate opposition
of Hanna, and Quay has the
credit of sharing- the Roosevelt
boom which resulted in ' Senator
Hanna's capitulation last night.
Whenever Quay appeared in
the convention, whenever he
arose to make a motion or. change
his seat, he was . greeted with
great applause. When he came
to the. convention he was regard
ed : J .s a dead politician. He is
to-night looked upon as once
more, a commanding factor in
Pennsylvania ; politics. ; Even his
enemies admit that during, the
ADELPHIA, June 21.— Mc-
Kinlev and Roosevelt are the Re-
publican candidates. They were
nominated to-day for President
and Vice President respectively,
not in stampede, but in formal
manner, showing that each was
the deliberate choice of the con
vention. No other candidate than
McKinley was considered for
President. No other candidate
than Roosevelt, was considered
for Vice. President-. .McKinley
got all the 926 votes in the con
vention. " Roosevelt' got all " but
one — his was* the* one vote "not
cast. To the end he remained
sincere in- his belief that some
body else ought to be nominated,
and carried home with him the
satisfying knowledge that he- was
the only anti-Roosevelt man in
the convention.
Mark Hanna is again : to be
manager of the campaign. Ten
minutes after the convention ad
journed he was elected chairman
of the new national committee.
Work is to be begun at . once.
No time is to be lost. Candidates
are to be notified, on July 12,
within a week after the Bryan
ticket has been placed in nomina :
tion. 'S'V, V;
The campaign is to be man
aged, as usual; by a selected com
mittee and there is to be an ad
visorv or financial committee, of
which Cornelius N. Bliss will be
one of the members.
The battle ground is to be the
"enemy's country." By the "en
emy's country" in Republican
circles is meant the great West —
Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and
other prairie and mountain
In little more than a week's
time Governor Roosevelt, at the
head of the charging Western
campaign column, will be invad
ing the "enemy's country."
A reunion of Rough Riders is
to be held in Oklahoma the first
week in July. Governor Roose
velt will attend it. The occasion
will be seized to make a demon
stration. The Governor will go
through Kansas City on his way
to the reunion. He will return
on July 5, just about the time
Brvan is being nominated.- There
McKinley was placed in nomina
tion by the dashing Foraker of
Ohio, and the standards ot all
States traveled to the stage,
where they were grouped about.
Mark Hanna led the cheering
and waved a ¦ bunch of pampas
grass tied -to the end of a broom
stick. The demonstration lasted
nearly ten minutes.
Governor Roosevelt's speech
seconding McKinley V nomina
tion was the signal for another
demonstration. The- Governor
made the best speech of the day.
If was broad, thoughtful, patri
otic and eloquent. He drove his
knife deep into Democracy and
when, he concluded the, leaders
knew they had ' on the ticket a
man to answer Bryan, should the
Democratic, champion tour the
country,' from' trie' rear platform.
, When air the " speeches ' for 'Me- ,
Kinley-' had been made Senator
Lodge, the chairman, ordered trie
roll of the States to be called for
the ballot/ There was no other
candidate, but it had been de
termined to make the result
proud and clinching. The chair
man of each ' State delegation
arose and cast the solid vote of
the State for McKinley, and he
was declared nominated. ;
The nomination 6f Governor
Roosevelt for Vice President was
made amid scenes of great en
thusiasm. The Governor was the
one popular idol in the conven
tion. "He was placed in nomina
tion by- Iowa. Colonel "Lafe"
Young, an Iowa editor, who was
in Cuba as a war correspondent, ¦
made the speech. The nomina
tion was seconded by Murray of
Massachusetts, Governor Mount
"of IndianaandiChauncey M. De
pew of New York.
The Governor left for
last week he has vastly added to
his strength.
The concluding session of the
convention took on in a supreme
measure the character of a great
Republican jubilee. Every man,
woman and child stood up when
York this evening in. General
Frank V. Greene's car.
Those on the committee to
present the President with the
gold badge will leave to-morrow.
Judge Van Fleet has been busy
to-night with national committee
work and will go to >*e\v York
and then home, stopping in Ohio
to see his father. j£. D. Rideout
and H. D. Robbins started home
The Californians are scattering
fast. George A. Knight leaves
for Washington and San Fran
cisco to-morrow.
Here, at. the Casino, a most
elaborate dinner was served to
about sixty. After the dinner
J. Martin pommel, a prominent
attorney of Philadelphia, acted as
toastmaster. Very graceful and
happy speeches thanking the
committee of Philadelphians for
their uniform hospitality and con
sideration were made by W. ,C
Haddock, director of public
works; Governor Taylor of Ken
tucky, Edgar D. Peixotto and
Sheriff Alexander Crow.
Knight pleased the Califor
nians. to a man. His voice certain
ly was the clearest and best heard
in the convention, . All seemed
much pleased with his speech.
• This evening the Californians
were again the recipients of the
lavish hospitality they have been
so fortunate to receive from the
special committee in charge of
them. At 4:30 four-in-hand tally
ho coaches were at the hotel. The
Galifornians and Kentuckians
were driven all through the city
and out and about Fairmount
Park, and then to the West Side

ADELPHIA^ June 21.— The
California delegation cut consid
erable figure in the final and ex
citing day of the convention.
First, it was the California dele
gation who supplied the red,
white and blue pampas plumes
which added such color and gave
so- picturesque^ an effect to the
scene when McKinley and Roose
velt were named for their places.
WASHINGTON, Juno 21.— At 4 o'clock this afternoon the
President T7ircd the following congratulatory telegram to
Governor. Rocsrrelt : ' . .
"Executive Mansion Washington, D. C, June 21.
"Hon. Theodore Roosevelt,' Fhiladslphia, Pa.: Your unanimous
nomination i3 a high and dsservetl honor. I extend -my heartiest
congratulation's. %< *•¦> ' ¦ ; : "WTLI.IAM McKINIiEY."^
Although no definite time has been fixed for the notification
committee to wait upon the President and formally notify him of his
nomination, it is expected that the President has indicated that it
will be entirely satisfactory^ him if the committee would visit him
at Canton on July 12. He and Mis. McKinley expect to leave here
for Canton not later than July" 1, and it is not improbable that tlrsy
may leave in time to reach; Canton June 30. According to present
plans they will remain there through the month of July. It is un
derstood to be the President's purpose not to make any speeches
during his absence from Washington. *
