WERE SERENE Democratic Convention Ends in Peace and Quiet. ONE DRAMATIC INCIDENT Bryan Relinquishes Leadership of tha Party, but Promises to Work as Never Before for Success at the Polfs—His Candidate for Vice Prss Ident Not Chosen for Second Placa. Baltimore, July 4.—The scenes that accompanied the closing of the Demo cratic national convention were in de cided contrast to the tumultuous ses sions of the week that had preceded them. The fight was taken out of both sides. The only dramatic Incident was the "valedictory" of William Jennings Bryan, delivered shortly after 1 o'clock in the morning, which brought his de voted followers to their feet in what proved the final demonstration of the long drawn out convention.. With Woodrow Wilson as the head of the ticket, the party chieftains wanted a man in second place who would be a strong factor in the de batable Middle West. Bryan disagreed with the first a ad second choice of the active party lead er*-—Speaker Clark and Governor Thomas R. Marshall of Indiana. The Nebraskan favored Governor Burke of North Dakota as his first choice. His second was Senator Chamberlain of Oregon. But the practical politicians. Tag part. Murphy, Sullivan and their lieu tenants, who had gone down to defeat before Bryan in every issue raised during the progress of the convention, declared that neither Burke nor Cham berlain should be the man. Chamberlain Needed in Senate. They pointed out that Chamberlain was a Democrat representing a Repub lican state In the upper branch of con gress. ••Nominate him and a Repub lican would certainly take his plaoe 1b the senate," they said. The Democrats are fully as much interested In making the senate Demo cratic as they are in electing their national ticket this year. So far as Governor Burke was con cerned the practical politicians point ed out that gebgraphlcally his posi tion was not such as to command votes. They insisted that the real candidate for the place was Marshall. Some of them wanted Senator Kern of Indiana. He could have had prac tically the unanimous nomination. But he positively refused, asserting that he was not strong enough to stand the worries of another protracted campaign and that he pref«rred his seat in the senate. Bryan worked its hard as he could to prevent tne Marshall nomination. He positively asserted that his oppo sition to the Indiana governor was In every way impartial and that he be lieved a better known progressive should have been the selection. Urged Burke's Withdrawal. But when the nomination was final ly assured on the second baJlot it was Bryan who urged and finally succeed ed in having the North Dakotans withdraw Burke so that the nomina tion might be unanimous. Wilson and Marshall seems to sat isfy every delegate to the convention. The sore spots are being rapidly healed as the men who have made party history In the most remarkable Democratic convention ever held de parted for their homes. Murphy and Bryan joined—although not together—In eulogizing the ticket and in predicting success for it next November. And Bryan positively promised. In one of the most eloquent speeches he has ever made, that he will stump the country from one end to the other to assure its success. The voluntary passing of Bryan was the one great dramatic incident of the night. The convention had stopped In the middle of the roll call in its nominations to spend a couple of hours disposing of the platform and the usual resolutions. It was long past midnight when it resumed Its labors. Names Bryan for Second Place. The roll call was proceeding slowly. The vast auditorium was still jammed with people. The galleries had been listening in amusement to the efforts of oratory to pay eloquent tributes to the men they were placing in nomina tion for the vice presidency. When the District of Columbia was reached a delegate arose and placed in nomina tion "the greatest of all Americans— William J. Bryan." The wildest demonstration of the convention fol lowed and Bryan was compelled to take the platform. He did not speak long, but every word he uttered will ever be remembered by those who 'icSrd it. He spoke in a voice that at times trembled with emotion at regret that the personal enmities he had engen dered during the sixteen years he had been leading Democracy made It nec essary for him to relinquish the lead ership Into other hands. Promises His Best Asalstanee. "He who fights must bear scars," he THOMAS R. MARSHALL Namsd for Second Place on the Democratic Ticket. shouted in a voice that again galvan ized the galleries and floor into life. "And any regret that I may have is wiped out by the realization that I can fight In the coming campaign as I have never fought before. Able to show that there Is no selfish Interest actuating my course, I hope to demon strate to the people of the country that the party we love so well is in reality the party of progress." Bryan retired to his seat amidst applause and the roll call on the nom ination of the vice president began. The first ballot showed Marshall In the lead. Then came an attempt on the part of some delegates to suspend the rule* so that a second ballot would be unnecessary, but Bryan was prepared to lead a fight on it. However, on the second ballot it was demonstrated that Marshall was sure to win and Congressman Hughes, leader of the Wilson forces, consulted with Bryan. The Nebraakan nodded acquies cence and Hughes demanded unani mous consent that the nomipatioa be made by acclamation. North Dakota Objected. North Dakota objected and the roll call was ordered to proceed. Then former Senator Puroell, real izing that the fight was over, with drew Governor Burke's name and the motion for the nomination by ac clamation was renewed and went through with a whoop. Fifteen seconds later the Demo cratic national convention was part of the nation's hiBtory. Following Wilson's nomination, a determined effort was made to have Speaker Champ Clark accept the nomination for the vice presidency. For a time the speaker was inclined to accede. Appeals were made to him on the grounds of party loyalty and the sturdy old Missourian was in clined to sacrifice his personal wishes to the call of the party. But his friends refused to permit the sacrifice. They told him bluntly there were plenty of other men and that as speaker he had a duty to per form and should remain there. The effort to get Clark as Wilson's running mate took time, and In the Interval, after listening to speeches nominating some of the candidates, the convention adopted a platform.

SAYS MACVEAGH IS INCOMPETENT Assistant Secretary Andrew Quits His Job. •01 ROAST FOR HIS CHIEF Wrltea Letter to President Declaring Conditions In the Treasury Depart ment Are Intolerable Because of the Secretary's Actions. Washington, July 4.—A. Piatt An drew has tendered his resignation to President Taft as assistant secretary of the treasury. In a spir.ted letter to the president, Mr. Andrew writes of conditions in the treasury department, which are alleged to be di e to the attitude of Secretary MacVeagh toward many of his subordinates. Assistant Secretary Andrew's letter of resignation charges that subordi nates in the treasury department "have been hampered and discouraged at every turn* by Secretary Mac Vpath's Idiosyncrasies and his inca pacity for decision." It contains a scathing arraignment of Secreta y MacVeagh's administra tion of "the government affairs" and cieated a profound sensation In offi cial circles. One portion of Andrew's letter to the president is susceptible of beins Interpreted to the effect that other treasury officials are dissatisfied with Secretary MacVa^h's treatment of them. "For further evidence of the peculiar difficulties which surrounds the hand ling of business In the treasury," he suggests that President Taft consult Lawrence O. Murray, comptroller of the currency Lee McClung. treasurer of the United States: Joseph E. Ralph, director of the bureau of engraving and printing Charles A. Kram, audi tor for the postofflce department Royal E. Cabell, commissioner of in ternal revenue James Knox Taylor of St. Paul, former supervising archi tect, and Charles D. Norton, Dr. An drew's predecessor and former sec retary to the president. Discloses Unpublished Fact. Mr. Andrew's letter to Secretary MacVeagh, advising him of the resig nation, discloses the hitherto unpub lished fact that Mr. MacVeagh was ou the verge of leaving the cabinet in December. 1910. In one part the let ter says: "You cannot forget how I stood by you when you were on the point of having taken from your hands what was probably the most important un dertaking of your administration. When the White House, in December, 1910, without consulting with you, and entirely without your knowledge, en tered into negotiations for an issue of Panama bonds, the embarrassment of the situation threatened to forte your resignation. You will remember that I did everything In my power to avert your humiliation and that I loyally agreed to resign and leave the service with you if your resignation became necessary." Some of the charges made by Mr. Andrew are as follows: That the secretary of the treasury's ldiosyncracie8 and Incapacity for de cision have so hampered the depart ment that It Is Impossible to properly conduct the work in it. That important matters are neglect ed by him for months, though snl ordinates are brutally reprimanded whenever acting on their own re sponsibility on matters of minor im portance. That the secretary imagines tbe men he personally selected as his as sistants are in a conspiracy against him and frequently refuses to speak to them for months at a time. That letters addressed to him by his assistants on matters of great im portance are generally unanswered. That many of the higher LEMM0H, at all time. officials of the department are so dissatisfied with the existing state of affairs that they have frequently considered re signing.
