ALMOST A DEAD
LOCK AT THE LAST
Baltimore. Md., July 3. In the dying
hours of the Democratic national con
vention this morning-, it seemed for a
time that there would be another dead
lock over the nomination for vice presi
dent Governor John E. Burke, of
North Dakota, for whom Mr. Bryan had
expressed a preference for the second
place on the ticket had polled enough
votes on the, first ballots -to block the
from the chair and said:
"North Dakota offered her three-times
governor to the party, believing him to
be the strongest running mate for gov
ernor "Wilson that could be nominated.
"We made the best fight we could for
him and realize we are beaten. "We
therefore withdraw his name, assuring
this convention that wherever there is
a fight for Democratic votes next fall,
governor John E. Burke will be found
in the thick of It"
The speaker thereupon moved to
make the nomination of governor Mar
shall unanimous. Immediately a wild
scramble for the doors followed, few
waiting to hear the motion put. Several
seconds later chairman James's gavel

applause at its conclusion were tributes

A large number of delegates left the
city after the nomination of governor
Wilson yesterday afternoon, without
waiting for the final session. Those
who remained showed the relief they
felt that the fight was over and a spirit

able and protecting ally, and we see the
spectacle of Madero himself parting
with his strongest man, his brother, Gus

Orozco has been driven hack, yes, over
a desert that was harder for his men to

also it has enabled him to concentrate
his troops into a smaller area, and, like
a coiled rattlesnake, Orosco can reach

endeavors to approach him. Incidentally
