CHICAGO, June 23.— ex-Gov.
Frank Black, of New York, fell the
honor of placing Theodore Roosevelt
In nomination for president at the Re
publican convention today. Speaker
Cannon took Mr. Black to the front of
the platform and characteristically in
troduced .him to the audience. Mr.
Black entertained his audience by a
discussion of party principles. He
compared Republican standards with
those of other parties.- With his keen
sense of humor and the deep thought
displayed in his address, the orator
fascinated always and frequently elec
trified his listeners. He led up to the
nomination gradually by defining the
type of man best suited for the party
color bearer.
As he confronted the convention
Gov. Black presented a striking fig
ure. He is tall and gaunt. His hair,
originally dark brown, is ..liberally
sprinkled with gray. His dark eyes
shone out brightly from beneath close
ly overhanging eyebrows. Gov. Black's
voice, though not heavy, carried well
and increased in volume as he got fair
ly under way. His epigrams provoked
laughter and the sharply turned sen
tences for which he is noted never
failed to raise a ripple of appreciative
applause. He said:
Mr. President, and Gentlemen of the
Convention: We are here to inaug
urate a campaign which seems al
ready to be nearly closed. So wise
ly have the people sowed and watch
ed and tended, there seems little
now to do but to measure up the grain.

The enemy has neither guns nor am

among the " soldiers." Each would fight* in
his own way, but before assaulting his
Republican adversaries he would first de

tents. Each believes the weapons chosen
by the other are not only wicked but fatal

It is a sad day for, any. party when its
only means of solving living issues is by
guessing at the possible attitude of a
statesman who is dead. This condition
leaves that party always a- beginner and

That motto may express contrition, but it
does not inspire hope. Neither confidence
nor enthusiasm will ever be aroused by
any party which enters . each campaign
uttering the language of the mourner.
"Equality of Men"
There is j one fundamental plank, how
ever, on which the two great parties are
in full agreement. Both believe in the
equality of men. The difference is that
the Democratic party would make every
man as low as the poorest, while the Re
publican party would make every man as
high as the best. But the Democratic
course * will provoke no outside interfer
ence now, for the Republican motto is
that of the great commander, "never in
terrupt the enemy while he. is making a
mistake." vXy
In politics, as in other fields, the most
impressive arguments spring from con
trast. Never has there been a more
striking example of unity than is now
afforded by this assemblage.
There are many new names in these*
days, but the Republican party needs no
new title. It stands now where it stood
at the beginning. The name of the Re
publican party stands over -every door
where a . righteous cause was born. Its
members have gathered around every
movement, no matter how weak, ;: if in
spired by high resolve. Its flag for • more
than fifty years has been the sign of hope
on every spot where liberty was the
word. That party needs no new name or
platform to designate its purposes. It. is
now as it has been, equipped, militant and
in motion. - y -
Opportunities and Dangers
The public mind is awake both to ■its'
opportunities and its dangers.' Nowhere
in the world, in any era, did citizenship
mean more than it means today in Amer
ica. Men of courage and sturdy char- *
acter are ': ranging themselves together
with a unanimity seldom seen. There is
no excuse for groping in the dark, for
the light is plain .to him who will but
raise his eyes. The American people be

From a Staff Correspondent
CHICAGO, June Every affec

tence that could be applied to President
Roosevelt was given him today when
for three hours there paraded before
the 12,000 who jammed the Coliseum
aisles > and hall : the flower of the Re

orators and some lesser satellites were
seen on the stage, and some of them
were even heard, but most of them
were not. -*Xy.y ■ X ' ■'■'.-'.
... "The man . who does think," "The
ranchero hero of Santiago, who
never * | sounded a retreat ' and never
will." These were only a few of the
endearing terms applied to the renom
inated president. Fairbanks was nomi
nated, too, but the speeches that nomi
nated him dwelt on the glory of the
United States, the pride of the Repub
lican party 'and the shortcomings of
,the I Democracy before they stopped to
allude to the personality of the nomi
nee. yy *
X There was no enthusiasm for Fair
banks, but the delegates : did do him
the courtesy to call on him for a speech
after his nomination, and found that he
had slunk from the hall in that same
noiseless where-is-he-now fashion that
has characterized his every movement
since ?he.„ came to Chicago except his
thrice triumphal entry, into the hall of
the convention amid the plaudits of his
faithful I rooters.
If President Roosevelt did personally
pick the h men to make the speeches
nominating him, -.he did one thing to
sustain the contention so. often raised
today that he follows the popular favor,
for the men who spoke in his behalf
were in'? the main orators worthy a
place any forum in the world.
First • came New \ York's former gov-
ernor, Black, conservative in his ges
tures as the forces that move the state
he represents, but with a clear, pene
trating voice that of its own force car
ried to the farthest limits of the hall

oration nominating Roosevelt. In sim

can people, that the man who should
be their chieftain is i the man who now
is, and when he} was through the fact
that they all believed It as a basic
part of the creed was manifest from
the demonstration^ which lasted twenty
Amid waving flags,? the totem poles
of the Alaskans and the golden banner
of California raced up and down the
aisles with a heroic charcoal portrait
of the president, which was opportune
ly brought in. Enthusiastic delegates
carried children to the r stage to wave
"Old Glory," and a Union veteran from
Willow.- Springs, Mo., carried to Chair
man Cannon a tattered -flag' that had
been in every Republican national con
vention since ? the Chicago event of
1860. The announcement of its his
tory continued the uproar another five
minutes, till a young man with a meg
aphone tried to lead the chorus from
the stage, and the delegates began' to
wonder if the demonstration was really
as spontaneous" as they thought.
Then came Senator- Beveridge. Al
ways interesting, the senator from In
diana was especially eloquent in his
pronouncement of the reasons why In
diana was for Roosevelt. More flowery
than Black, and with a voice' more
pleasing in its fullness, he was fully as
popular, but he dwelt too long after
making clear his seconding of the nom
ination? and talked within a minute as
long as had Black.
Third was Knight—George F. Knight
of California— such a knight! He

stars, who came from the East and
from the middle of the Union. Where
the thousands had heard parts of the
other -speeches, everyone in that vast
hall heard every line and every word -
of this new Knight from the Pacific.
A "Western giant, grown gray on the
public platform, he had not finished his
first sentence when the convention was
thrown into a spasm by a shrill appeal
from the far corner of the southern
gallery, "Not so loud!" ? Knights huge
voice filled every corner of the hall
and rippled back in echoes to the stage,
but in spite of its resonance, it had
not a grating note. X
Knight was the man the crowd was '
talking about when it left the hall, and
he gave them things to talk about as
well as to listen to. Where the courtly
Beveridge had brushed by the labor
problem with the general proposition
that the Republican party had been
first to teach the laboring man his
•quality, and equality, Knight threw the
gage right into the field of battle by
a passing allusion to Uncle Sam's dig
ging of the Panama canal. "President
Roosevelt promised every man a job,"
shouted Knight, "and Uncle v Sam y
wanted this job and Uncle Sam be
longs to the Union." It was a minute
before the audience tumbled to
Knight's double meaning, and then
there was an outburst of enthusiasm?
"He hypnotizes obstacles," was another
characterization of the president that
found great favor with Knight's hear
