Great Fourth ofjuly
Celebration In Newport
. The playing of the 'Star Spangled Banner" by the
Newport City Band at exactly 11 o'clock Monday evening
brought to a dose officially the border city's observance
of the Fourth of July and the many thousands of people
thronged the streets to witness the
vaudeville performances went home
happy and well satisfied that Orleans
County had never before seen such a
stupendous celebration of the day that
i sset aside to remember the signing
of the Declaration of Independence.
It was a source of great delight for
the committee in charge of the big
event to watch everything go off so
There was narv a hitch in the en
tire program and the citizens of the
city who promoted the affair and put
it over in such style are to be con
gratulateli upon their ability as pro
moters and dircctors. There was ab
solutely no way in which to tabulate
exactly the number ot' persons in the
beautiful citv on the ?-hores of Mem-
phremagog Lake yesterdav but on a
rough guess it would he safe to esti
mate the crowd at 10.000.
Newport never before has seen
such a vast mass of people within its
ronfine and it will probably be some
time btfore such a l-.rge number ci
people will be here rgain. Hvl i:
not been for the fact that old Jupiter
Pluvius played hide and seek in the
clouds and frightened many ot the
more timid res. a much greater
pathering would have been or. lune.
What threatened early to be a rainv
dav turned out to be i gloiious . un
shiny day, ali of which did much to
make the celebration ar. overwhelm
The day's program was ushere 1 in
at 10 oVlock with a pai-ade that to
tally cclipsed anythin of its kirrl
ever attenroted in this seclion of Ihe
country. Kvcn the opliroistie mpm

Record-Breaking Deadlock Comes To
An End at 1 .40 a. m. Name
Vice-President Late Today
(By the Associated Press)
SAN FRANCISCO, July G James M. Cox, tliroe
times governor of Ohio, was nominated for the presi
dency early this morning by the. Democratic National
convention in the breakup of one of the most prolongued
deadlocks in the hitory of national i .. . -
It took 44 ballots
to make a choice and it was not un
til the S8th when Attomey General
Palmer withdrew from the race that
the long suceession of ioli calls shbw
ed and definite trend.
In the turnover of the Palmer del
egates Cox "ained the advantacre over
McAdoo, his- rivai for first place,
since early in the balloting and the
advantage was never losl. Witli its
choice made the convention adjourn

for the vice "esideney.
On the opening ballot Frida" the
Ohio governor was in third olace. He

Then began a see-sawino- belween the
Cox and McAdoo totals, which at the
end of the "Oth roll cali at midnight,

Cox put him well ahead and after

the first time of ali the votes cast
and on the 44th he was plunging to
wards the required . two-thirds when
Colorado changed its vote to him and
made the nomination obvious. It
was made unanimous cn motion of
Sam B. Amidon of Kansas, a leader
of the McAdoo forces.
As the Cox total passed that of
McAdoo and sureed upwards, the
McAdoo managers made a desperate
