Yesterday he de scribed the running of a cam paign; today's article tells the "Inside" of national conventions. Tomorrow (iartluer will show thai the methods by which the pies I dent is actually chosen are con trary to the American constitu tion:—Fßl TOB.) By Gilson Gardner WASHINGTON, D. C... May 2C — A thousand delegates—one del egate for every 100,000 people— go to make up a national politi cal convention. These delegates meet, deliber ate, and by ballot choose some man to stand as the party. candidate for president and vice president. Sl't'H IS THE THEORY. In practice, about 990 dele gates are present to furnish a set ting, while the other ten do the deliberating and choosing. Sometimes the whole thousand are made scen ery, the choice baring been made by public sentiment befotg the conventions meets. An example of this wus the convention in 1 irardner v h l'a''(> I|lhiil which nominat ed McKlnley for his second term and chose Roosevelt as vice pres idential candidate. The only uncertainty in that convention was the choice of the vice president, and unite a good deal of dramatic Interest was de ! veloped over the fight of Tom i Piatt to foist Hoo—Tilt on the ! convention against the hitter's wishes. Another example -if this kind of convention was the one which nominated Roosevelt for his sec ond term. This fight stinted mouths be fore the convention met when Roosevelt announced that those not for him were against liim and hy the time the convention as sembled there were enough "de clared" delegates lo make his re nonilnation a certainty. This Is the kind of convention Woodrow Wilson will have at St. I^onis June 14. It has all been decided that he is to be nominated, and the only uncertainty is that which will surround the particular wording of the platform declarations, with a hare possibility that Tom Marshall will not be the unani mous choice for vice president, In which case Senator Robert 1,. Owen of .Oklahoma may contest for that honor. (Juite different from this kind of a convention is the one which will meet in Chi cago under republican aus pices. The lalter resembles in some ways several historic conventions, like those which nominated Blame, Garfield and gave Cleveland bis sec ond nomination. These were protracted and uncertain, and the nomina tion when finally made was news tn all the country. In this so-called "old-fashion ed" convention the outcome is the result of back-room confer ences benveen political leaders, the delegates being puppets. Often these conferences are ac companied by secret agreements worked out later In the distribu tion of spoils, the foreign diplo matic appointments and big fed eral offices at the disposal of the chief executive. This kind of a convention is dear to the heart of the profes sional politician. It exaggerates and magnifies his power. The growth of popular primar ies of late years has made con ventions of the uncertain type less common. IT WAS SUP POSED FOUR YEARS AGO THAT THERE NEVER AGAIN WOULD BE A CONVENTION OF THAT SORT. In the uncertain conven tion, oratory comes to play a larger part. The delegates are open to persuasion. In this connection is re called the famous speech of coi. Robert O.
