testing the strength of the tsvo factions,
submitted a motion that no action on the
question of preferences should be taken

endorsing the ex-president and instruct
ing the delegation from Illinois to vote for
him on the lirst ballot as a unit. The mo

according tohis predilections. The last
name had l ately been called svhen the
sergeant-at-arms poked his head out of the
door and announced to the svaitiiig crowd:
"Thirty-seven for Cleveland, eleven
against." A cheer went up from those in
the immediate neighborhood. Like a
flash the message went through the
crowded corridor and lobby and down to
j the street. "Cleveland gets the delega
tion," and the hundreds that had been
j anxiously waiting for the news scattered
to spread it far and wide.
