They must, if they desire to hold the demo cratie party together in the east, oall a convention and nominate a man upon a sold platform. This convention as aembled here bus sounded the death knell of free silver; their high-handed method of procedure will . be re seated by democrats generally.

With Tennessee, the United Prsss tally shows s Bland, luSv Boies, 66; Matthews, 96 ; McLean, 49 ; Bryan, 124; Blackburn,. 39; Pattison, 94; not voting, 186. . The chair took this occasion to ask the delegates to restrain themselves from making speeches, and confine their announcements to a mere state ment of the votes. The Michigan dele gation polled several delegates, and rhen their names were called, they responded in loud tones, ''Decline to "70te.' Others simply said, "not vot log " Minnesota brought an addi Uonai name, that of Vice-President Adlal E. Stevenson, before the con. f entioo. Not a solitary cheer greeted it. New Jersey beirg reached, the chair man of the delegation arose and said : "New Jersey respectfully declines to vote," whereupon the galleries broke into obeers and hisses. The chair re quested such demonstrations to cease whereupon a delegate shouted i "They are all republicans and ought to be put out " The state of New York adopted the same course as New Jer sev. On being called, ex Governor Roswell P. Flower rose and said : "In view of the platform adopted by this convention, I am isatructed as a dele gate from the state of New York to gay that the delegates hive agreed not to participate in the seleotion of can didates for president and vice-pres ident; therefore, they decline to vote The chairman of the; North Carolina delegation, when that state was called, paroided Mr. Mower's words, saying: "In view of the platform adopted by this convention, I am requested by the delegation from North Carolina to cast twenty-two votes for Bryan. , Cheers and laughter.

A "very pertinent ques tion" it, the chairman admitted ana then added: "Proceed with the roll call." Wisconsin, not voting, 24. When the state of Wisconsin was callel, a contention arose among its delegates, some silver men claiming the unit rule did not govern their action, and the gold men, especially General Bragg and Senator Vilas, Insisting that it did and that instructions had been printed on the commissions of delegates. A copy of these instructions was sent to the chair, and read by one of the seore- taiies. It directs the delegates from Wisconsin to "Vote as a unit on all subject?, and for candidates -' as the majority may determine." Gen eral Bragg, in a coarse and somewhat -angry altercation with a delegate opposed to , bis views, de clared that the silver delegation from Virginia should not determine the course of the democracy of Wisconsin. He added that, at a meeting of the Vt is- oonsin delegation, yesterday, twenty bad declared themselves In favor ol not voting in the convention, while four were in favor of voting. The chair man instructed the secretary to call the names of the Wisconsin delegation In response to the call, General Braeg, Senator Vilas, and eighteen otters, de clined to vote, while four others voted.

He rose to address the chair, when several glasses of water were ten dered him, some of which he drank and one be threw away. He after wards mounted the platform, amidst considerable confusion, and said, "I move that it is the sense of this con vention that a majority should rule, and that the preoedent established by democrauo conventions heretofore un der the two-thirds rule, is a cowardly subterfuge, r Hisses and uproar 1 The official total of the third ballot is: Bland, 291; Boies, 36; Matthews, 34; McLean, 64; Bryan, 219; Black burn, 27; Pattison, 97; Stevenson, 9; Hiii, 1 ; not voting, 162 : total, 930. 1:57 p.m. Fourth ballot ordered. 1:59 p. m.
