BEARER. Sitting tilted back in a big armchair at his desk the President chatted freely and frankly with those about him. AH were his personal friends, and the Pres ident realized perfectly that the little confidences of the "executive session," as he himself termed It. would be held as Inviolable. He talked and acted not as President of the United States, not President Roosevelt rose from his chair to receive the affectionate con gratulations of those about him. He was the most unconcerned, seemingly, of all. He chatted animatedly a few minutes with Mrs. Roosevelt, Miss Carew and Loeb, and then accom panied his secretary to the executive offices. ATTENDS. TO ROUTINE WORK. Outward indications that Theodore Roosevelt was to be chosen unanimous ly as the standard-bearer of his party absolutely were lacking at the White House in the morning. The President appeared at his desk at the usual hour and began" immediately to transact rou tine executive business with Secretary Loeb. The important subjects disposed of, he received several - visitors .for «hom engagements had been made. No members of the Cabinet called dur ing the early hours of the business day. The President was kept In close touch with the situation at Chicago through the press bulletins and private messages from the convention hall, which were received over a special wire at the White House. On his return to the executive offices after he had been informed of his nomination. President Roosevelt greet ed cordially a number of newspaper men. He expressed his pleasure at re ceiving the warm congratulations of those who. In the performance of their duties, are kept constantly" in touch with the President and his work. CHATS WITH FRIENDS. WASHINGTON, June 23.—Surround ed by members of his family. President Roosevelt received the announcement that he had been nominated unani mously by the Republicans at Chicago. The news was received by telephone at the White House by a press repre sentative In advance of its receipt over the special telegraph wire running from Chicago to the executive offices. At 1i:lZ p. m. the bulletin was given to Secretary Loeb. Some time previ ously the President had left his offices in the executive building and had gone to the White House for luncheon. Sec retary Loeb immediately conveyed the news to him there. Seated on the veranda of the White House, chatting with Mrs. Roosevelt, his sister-in-law. Miss Carew and other members of his family, tjie President received Loeb's announcement. Chairman Parker of the Missouri del egation presented to the committee an A resolution was adopted authorizing the chairman to appoint an executive committee of nine, with such other of ficers as are necessary for ther'manage ment of the campaign. The chairman, secretary, treasurer and sergeant-at arms are to-be officers of the executive committee. Under this resolution the chairman is ; given absolute power in the conduct of the campaign. INVITATION* FROM FRANCIS. - After Cortelyou's remarks Elmer Do ver. of Ohio was named as secretary by Senator. Scott. Cornelius N. Bliss of New ¦ York . for treasurer by Governor Murphy and William F. Stone of Mary land for sergeant-at-arms by Senator Mi Comas. All of these officers were unanimously re-elected. ¦No 'vice chairman will be appointed, and the new chairman will divide his time between the New York and Chi cago headquarters, although some members of. the committee no doubt will be designated to take charge of the headquarters In this city. Head quarters will not be opened in either city | until ' l the latter part of July. Meanwhile Cortelyou expects to select the executive committee and make his preliminary arrangements for the cam paign. s As soon as the committee was called to order, Postmaster General Payne, in a complimentary speech, nominated Cortelyou- for chairman, and the elec tion was made without a dissenting voice. Clayton of Arkansas, Murphy of New Jersey and Yerkes of Kentucky were appointed a committee to notify the new chairman and bring him be fore ' the committee. CHICAGO, June 23.— George B. Cor telyou was chosen chairman of the Republican •National Committee at a meeting held to-day, just after the ad journment of the national convention. 2n thanking the committee for the honor, he told the members that, whHe he would be glad to have the benefit of their, advice and counsel, he in tended to be chairman in fact, and would accept no dictation from any one, high or low. He told them that the friends of the late Chairman Hanna were his friends, and he asked for the same measure of confidence and support that had been given to the late chairman. In conclusion, he sought the advice of both old and new members. ¦ Cortelyou made «S formal statement of his plans. He had resigned as Sec retary of Commerce and Labor as soon as he was elected chairman, the resig nation to take effect as soon as bis successor qualifies, which will be about July 1. Secretary Cortelyou will nor give any active time to political mat ters until he retires from the Cabinet. . XO VICE CHAIRMAN. Bearer of Tidings Finds Him Chatting With Members of His Family.

MR, ROOSEVELT UNCONCERNEDLY AWAITS RESULT HANNA'S PLACE NOW OCCUPIED BY CORTELVOU When the convention was called to order to-day the galleries were filled' for the first time. Tiers of people wer< standing in the aisles and back of the rows of seats. Former Gover nor Black's introduction to make the Roosevelt nominating speech was the fcignal fop the first outburst of ap plause. Black led ud to the nomina tion by gradually defining: the type of man best suited for the party's color bearer. As he - named Theodore j CROWD PACKS COLISEUM. When Senator Fairbanks had been nominated for Vice President there was no diminution in the demonstration. The voices were hoarse, but the shout- Ing was as general as it was for the head of the ticket. The delegates in their eagerness to exhibit approval of the nomination accepted every signal for renewed -cheering. A little colored boy from Georgia, and later a pretty little girl dressed in a dainty frock of white, were lifted to the platform, where they waved flags vigorously. At the conclusion of every seconding speech the outburst was repeated, and the speakers themselves were generally applauded. The chairman tired and his place was taken by a young man, who grasped the flagstaff firmly in one hand and with a megaphone led the yelling. He started to yell, "Roosevelt, Roosevelt, Roosevelt," repeated over a^d over over again, with the system of a college yell. It was taken up by the throng, and the cry of "Jioosevelt" rolled over the hall in volumes so great and so ter rific that the screeching of a hundred steam whistrw v/ouid have been dwarfed in comparison. LIKE A COLLEGE YELL. When Governor Black of New York made his speech nominating President Roosevelt to succeed himself as Presi dent, the delegates in the . Republican Convention proved there was no ab- Fcnce of enthusiasm in their ranks when occasion Justified an exhibition cf that Quality. For twenty-five min utes the great throng told its approba tion of the convention's choice for President. The name of Roosevelt came from every mouth. The New York delegates paraded the hall, shout ing at the top of their voices. Other delegations joined the procession, and the- weJ! ordered body of a half hour before was a shifting mass, every eemblance of organization gone. While the demonstration was at its height Chairman Cannon stepped to the front of tne stage. He held in his hand the banner which was waved in 1SG0 when Lincoln was nominated, and •which fcas been used in every conven tion since. The flex showed the wear and tear of ' many similar contests. "Uncle Joe" wa\-cd It vigorously and kept time with his body. Soon the ¦whole convention was swaying in exact measure. 1 rfiii^'i by a resounding demonstration vbich attested the candidates' great popularity. The charing was l<=d by figures known through the breadth of the land and echoed by a mighty throne of enthusiastic men and radiant vomen assembled in the Coliseum to witness the crowning feature of the convention, as well as the close of th<* rational meeting that marks the semi centennial of the Republican party in the United States. No less than 10,000 men and women participated in the ratification of the party programme and the consequent roar of cheering and handclapping was de&feninp. The band, stationed high among tho girders of the hall, was browned by the tumultuous, unbounded demonstration. Hats were tossed into the air, State emblems were waved and flags — beautiful, tri-colored, shim mering, silktn flags — fluttered from every hand, as though stirred by a RIOT OF ENTHUSIASM. Rpjrardkss of the fart that th«> nomi- ! nation of one had b«*en assured for months and the other for day». the an- I naiirf-riieni of the choice was accom- j CHICAGO.

"Geography counts but little with the sentiment and enthusiasm that is to day apparent in favor of one who is to be given all the honors anoTduties of an elected President of the United States," Knight said when silence was restored. Continuing in epigramatic style he thrilled the convention for many minutes. His voice never fal tered. His name was spoken in terms of congratulation on every side. When he had ceased, and with waving ban ners the California delegation marched to the platform to escort him to his seat, the great Coliseum rocked with the cheers of the multitude. California's headquarters were in darkness to-night. The wines and fruits had been distributed among the fortu nate friends cf the delegates and the last toast had been drunk. Several of; the delegates have departed already, and more will go to-morrow. "Within three days the last California delegata will have departed from Chicago. PARDEE GOES TO -T. LOUIS. Again the tempest broke. Out of the wilderness of silence had come a human voice. It had been heard and understood. The convention was over joyed: its enthusiasm must find vent. THRILLS THE CONTENTION. Knight's voice reached to the farthest pillar and echoed back from the giant arches. With a howl of delight the con vention » arose, and the waving flags with their crimson stripes were like a sea of flame. Speaker Cannon, with the gavel in his left hand pounding for order and his right uplifted command ing silence. wa3 ignored. For minutes the uproar continued. "When silence came again Knight continued: ••Geography counts — " HEADQUARTERS CALIFORNIA DELEGATION*. CHICAGO. June 23 — California's triumph came to-day In the national convention. Her triumph was that of George A. Knight, th« eloquent lawyer of San Francisco. From 10:3* o'clock until long after noon the per spirins delegates had been listening to the*disiineuished men of the East. Ex- Governor 'Black of New York had placed Mr. Roosevelt In nomination, and Senator Boveridge of Indiana had delivered the iirst seconding speech. To those in the rear galleries and side seats their efforts were nausht but mere pantomime. No sound strayed from a direct line in front of the plat form until Knight opened his masterly address.
