JULY 6. 1912. WILSON NOMINATED FOR PRESIDENCY. I. I * . . tfir.-v-. <■ New Jersey Governor Wins On Forty-Sixth Ballot Be fore Democratic Nominat ing Convention Gov ernor Marshall of Indiana Given Second Place Bryan and Clark Refuses Second Position —Great Victory for Wilson. Baltimore, July 3.—For President — Gov, Woodrow Wilson, of New Jersey. For Vice President—Gov. Thomas R. Marshall, of Indiana. This was the ticket completed by the Democratic National Convention at 1 ;50 Wednesday. The nomination of Gov. Marshall for Vice President came as something of a surprise, for when the night’s balloting for Vice President began, it seemed that the Bryan-Wilson contingent in the convention had settled definitely upon Governor John E. Burke of North Dakota. There was not muen of a fight, how ever, and when two ballots disclosed Marshall easily in the lead, Governor Burke’s name was withdrawn, and Mar shall was proclaimed the nominee by acclamation. A minute later the cpn vention had adjourned sine die. The first ballot for Vice President re sulted as follows: Marshall, 389; Burke, 305 2-3; Chamberlain, 157; Hurst, of Illinois, 77; Preston, 58; McCombs, 18; Osborne, 9; Sulzer, 3; Wade, 26; ab sent, 46 1-3. Speaker Champ Clark easily could have had the vice presidential nomina tion, and efforts of Wilson leaders, as well as those of others of various sec tions of the party, were directed toward having the Missourian accept second place on the ticket. He resolutely de clined and stated positively that he would not accept, even if the conven tion forced the honor of the nomination upon him. Col. W. J. Bryan was among tnose placed in nomination and, in declining, took occasion to make his last speech of the convention. After expressing his thanks and saying he thought the post best fitted for another, he delivered what many regarded as his valedictory as the party’s leader. “It is not because the Vice Presi dency is lower in importance than the Presidency that I decline,” he said. “There is no office in the nation so low that I would not take it if I could serve my country by accepting it. “I believe that I can render more service to my country when I have not the embarrassment of a nomination and have not the suspicion of a selfish inter est than I could as a candidate, and your candidates will not be more active in this campaign than I shall be, “My services are at the command of the party, and I feel a relief now that the burden of leadership is transferred to other shoulders.” When, after the first ballot, someone moved to make the nomination of Mar shall unanimous, Mr. Bryan started for the stage to make a statement. The motion was withdrawn before he could speak. When the motion was renewed, after the second ballot, Mr. Bryan did not protest. The platform, hewn out in committee several days ago and warmly praised by Mr. Bryan, was adopted with a whoop. Many of the delegates went directly from the convention hall to special trains, and by tomorrow practically all will have left town. The nomination of Gov. Wilson to carry the standard of Democracy came Tuesday afternoon on the forty-sixth ballot. After steady gains upon sev eral preceding ballots of the day’s ses sion, Underwood and Foss delegates were released, and similar action was taken in the case of the followers of Clark, Party leaders and his opponents in the recent contest hastened to pledge him their support, and the sentiment was general that the Democratic party, with him as a leader and a fellow-pro gressive on the ticket, had the greatest opportunity of years. Everywhere was voiced the belief that there was nothing to fear from either the regular Repub lican nominee or the proposed Roose velt third party. — The total personal assessment of Har rison county, as filed with the Board ot Supervisors by Assessor Havens for 1912, is $3,306,084.

ALBERT JONES, Constable, Petition for Pardon. Hon. Earl Brewer, Governor of the State of Mississippi:— We, the undersigned citizens of Hanock County, Mississippi, would most respectfully and earnestly petition Your Excellency to par don Martin Rochon, who was convicted in May, 1903, in Hancock County, Mississippi, and who is now serving a sentence of 20 years in the peni tentiary for attempted rape, for the following reasons, to-wit: First—Because said Rochon is entirely inno cent of the crime of which he was convicted. Second—Because the testimony on which he was convicted was wholly insufficient to convict, and utterly failed to establish his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and his conviction was more the result of public clamor than proof of his guilt. Third—Because we are i flvjed that he has been a goo'Lprise i.e- -ud :ym,Mo*/FoagCalty. Respectfully, * / J. A. DE MONTLUZIN, W. H. BOURGEOIS, R. C. ENG MAN, SA vl BACCARAT, R. J.

The records for May 25, the end of the prison month, gave the population as 1812, Since that date twenty-four have been received, but forty-five have gone out, leaving the net result at 1791. Of the forty-five going out twelve were par doned, five died and one escaped. Of the twenty-four recruits six are in for murder, three for manslaughter, three for assault and battery with intent to kill, two for rape, six for burglary, one for robbery and one for grand larceny.

The poor man’s trip to the North and East, a yearly event in railroad history of the South, has been cut out, for the reason, as it is generally understood, that people who are well able to pay the full rate have been too prone to take advantage of the heretofore annual event —wait for it, in fact —and, as a re sult, there will be no more August rcund trips of sls to Chicago and Bt. Louis, sl2 to Louisville and $lB to Washington. If the people want to make the trips i now, it will be up to them to pay full fare, and, if they have not the full fare, they must needs stay at home or take a hurry-up Sunday trip where the go ing and coming amounts only to sl. For years the popular August get aways have been the thing for those of limited means. Round-trip tickets were sold to Louisville, Cincinnati, Ashe ville, Washington, Chicago, Detroit and other places for a little over half the one-rate way, under ordinary cir cumstances. The people have always waited for these excursions, and during the past two or three seasons the New Orleans lines found it necessary to send the trains out in two or three sections to take care of the crowds. Owing to the fact that too many peo ple waited for the excursions, the latter have been cut out. The railroads have found during the past few years that, while their excursion business increased, their regular business showed a falling off, and the reason was that people who were able to pay the full fare and under ordinary conditions would have started out earlier in the summer, waited for the cheap excursions, when they could go for less than half the charge they would have to pay in June or July. It was decided to cut the cheap ex cursions out at the meeting of the Southeastern Passenger Agents’ Asso ciation, held at Toxaway, N. C., last week. J. Kemp Ridgely, assistant general passenger agent of the Louis ville and Nashville, returned from the meeting yesterday and gave out the in formation that the cheap August excur sions had been cut out by the New Or leans lines.
