CLOSE OF A BIG CONTEST
Convention Hall; Chicago, July
10. Governor Waller, of Connecticut,
In the convention ball, this morning,
- eaid to a representative of the United
Press: "The action of this convtn
tlon has left only one course for the
sound money men' to pursue. 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. Silver
men have over-ridden themselves and
left a way open for the gold men to
bolt tbmr nominees." ,
The New York men say that all the
gold adherents in the convention have
greed to stand together, to-aay, nut
will neither vote in nor bolt from the
; THE CONVENTION OPENS. ;
The fourth day's session of the dem
ocrats national convention opened .in

Richard Parks Bland,

Whitney was there, but Senator Hill

At this J tincture, several chairmen of
delegations injected little stump
speeches into their, announcements of
votes of their delegations. When Mas
sachusetts was called, a delegate an
noanced the chairman and vloa-chair-mrn
absent. O'iul.liran, of that dele
gation, said these men were gold men,
ad they had purposely absented them
selves, r TennesseeBland, 21; chal

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. '
The poll of Tennessee resulted

the unit rule the vote for Bland was
reoorded at 24 ; Texas, Bland 30; Utah,

approval or disapproval of the course
of delegates. A "very pertinent ques
tion" it, the chairman admitted ana
then added: "Proceed with the roll
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.

TWO MORE NOMINATIONS.
The chairman then recognised W.
F. Harrity, of Pennsylvania, who,
standing ia the main: aisle, was
greeted with cheers-:'' He said:
1 desire to say, in obedience
to the instructions ' given by the
democratic state convection, the Penn
sylvania delegation presents the name
of Kobert iu Pattison, of Pennsylvania,
as s candidate for the presidency."
The chair ' asked if there were anv
other nominations. Mr. Mattingly, of
the District of Columbia, from toe rear
of the hall, seconded the nomination of
that peerless champion of free silver,
true demoorat and friend of labor,
John R. McLean, of Ohio. Miller, of
Oregon, on behalf of that state, nomi
nated ex-Governor Sylvester Pennoyer.
No other names being presented, the
uhair declared the nominations closed,
but revoked that order and directed the
seoretary to call the roll of the states.
But before he oommenced, Smith, Of

The chairman announced that the
gentleman from Louisiana moved that
the two-thirds rule be abrogated. Sen
ator Blancbard said that be was au
thorized by the Louisiana delegation to
say that the motion was not made at
its suggestion and he moved to lay the
motion ou the table. At the same time
the point of ordtr was made that
a motion to abrogate the two
thirds rule,' must be first con.
sidered by the committee on rules.
The point of order was sustained by
the chair. Thereupon, Marsden, smil
ing but disoomfitted, retired from the
