Thomas K. Wat son, of Georgia, wl o was u member of tlio fifty-first con gress and wlio In the fifty-second and fifty-third congresses unsuccessfully contested Col. Hlnck'sscat wasnoml- niitcd for vice-president by the popu list convention, on the first ballot, shortly after midnight. Thero were live other candidates viz: Scwall, Mageo, of Virginia, Mlinius of Tennessee, Congressman Skinner of North Carolina, and Col. Hurkcttof Mississippi. The nomination was mado unani mous before the result of the roll cull was an nou need. Bryan sent word to his supporters that ho would not accept the nomina tion at the hands of the. convention undor theso circumstances. Ho will stand loyally by his running mate. The opposition to Scwall In the Populist convention practically swamped tho Bryan forces at the day session of the convention, by making It Impossible to prevent a division of tho Chicago ticket. The leaders wero powerless to check tho strong feeling agalnstttlip shipbuilder and banker, They had carried tho day In the com mittee on resolutions, in framing a comparatively moderate' platform, which 'they afterwards got through the convention with case. Their strategy, was skillfully displayed nt other polntB. But tho Intense under current of tho feeling against Scwall was fatal to them. It was the aunkenditch, unmarked upon tho battle Held which, clutching with Its muddy fingers nt the wheels of Ills artillery, bore down Napoleon and his eagles at Waterloo. Today the ditch was In open view. From the beginning It was gaped like a chasm athwart the path of tho Bryan, managers. In vain they attempted to bridge It. Moreover, today for the first tlmo the middle-of-the-road clo ment displayed n generalship worthy of the name. Recognizing the fact that mil hope of defeating Bryan's nomination wqs. lost, they concentred all tholr efforts against Scwall. They did more; they devised a cunning soheino by which tho convention was forced to nomlnato tho ylce-prcsldcnt before the president. It was an un precedented thing and It served to mass the votes In favor of thoropullst candldato for vice-president, and un cover them In advance, In the fear that If Bryan was nominated tho en thuslam might break down tho oppo sition to tho wall and stampede n ma jority of the votes for thoNebraskan's running mute. TODAY'S I'KOCKKrilNpS. "yijen, tho Pppujlst convcntlpti ret cgnveped thlsniorping, Chairman Al len announced that the first thing In order was tho selection of members of tho national committee and commit tees to notify tho candidates for presi dent and vice president. Tho chair man then called for the nomlnutlon Children Cry for P.tohtr's Castorla. for president. General Weaver foim ally placed Bryan In nomlnatlui. When General Weaver concluded by naming "that splendid young states man, William J. Bryan," the conven tion broke loose. Cheer followed cheer. Delegates Jumped onto their chalis, llags, handkerchiefs, bills, state guid ons were waved In wild confusion. Through the side entrance, four? men carried a 'big yellow cross, four by eight feet In slzo, surmounted by a crown of thorns. On It were Inscribed the eloquent words, with which "Bryan closed his brilliant speech nt Chicago. A big crayon portrait of tUc Nebraska statesman was also carried Into the hall. -, The cross, ban ncr? and state gllldons were rallied frantically about It. Then with tho cross 'lending the way they were carried to the stage, where for five minutes they danced In con fusion, while tho delegates howled with delight. As the procession pushed tho Texas delegation a free light-almost occurred. Men struggled and fought to bar the passu go but tho way watt finally cleared. While the demonstration was at Its hclghtjthou sands of copies of tho "Bryan silver March" wero Hung high In tho air and fell In clouds on tho frantic dele gates. Each verso concluded with these werds: "Chink, chink, chink, no crown of thorns for lulwr's brow. j "Chink, chink, chink, no cross of gold for mankind now.1' I Chink, chluk,chlnk,wc'U not to single standard bow, J Chink, chink, chink wo vote fur f rcc- dom now. When qulot wns restored after 11 minutes bcdlam,Gcnernl Field of Vir ginia, Weavers running mate In 1892, Ilobblcd forward on crutches, nnd nf- tor a brTof'spccch moved to" thfflpcud the rules nnd make Bryan's nomina tion unanimous. Motion met with such opposition that it wus wltlii drawn, and tho call of states for nomi nations continued. Jerry Simpson responded for Kansas, He paid i) high tribute to Tom Wat son, also to Bryan. While Simpson was talking, tlio Texas delegation withdrew n body and absolute quiet prevailed for tho first tlmo today. Louisiana yielded to Colorado, Mrs. Mlnorva Roberts, then seconded Bry an's nomination. Her brief speech was one of tho most eloquent delivered In tho convention. Call, of New York, placed Col. Nor ton, of Illinois, In nomination. E. Geary Brown, of Massachusetts, de clared tho Issue of tho coming cam paign was a voto for Bryan and silver or "McKlnlcy and hell and dam nation." After a great number of seconding speeches tho roll call was ordered, The voto resulted: Bryan l;OI2; Nor ton 312. Donnelly announced on tlio floor that a telegram had been received from Bryan absolutely declining to accept tho nomination, Chairman Allen says there has been rumors at a fictitious telegram of somo sort, but ho had not seen it. WEAVER'S SPEKCH. In lhat midnight discussion between liru. tut and Caul us concerning the contemplated battle at Phllliptj, llrutus urged that their cause was rife, their legions brimful! at the height and ready to decline. Said hoi "Thero is a tide in the affairs of men, Which, taken at the flood, leads on to for tune; Omitted, all their voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and miseries; And then, in djatr.ntlc climax he exclaimed! 'On such a full sea are we now afloat, and, wp must Take the current when it s:ives, Or lose our ventures." For twenty vears we have been pleading with the people to espouse the sacted cause which is at stake in ibis campaign, We have constantly urged through good and through eyil report that our principles were wore im portant than party associations! were above all considerations of private fortunoorthe tviiv and feverish ambitioni of men. We have thus far suited our action to our words made through five presidential campaigns stretching from 1876 to 1891 correctly estl. mated the purpose of old party managers, and events have sustained every specification in your indictment against them. Millions of honest men within old party ranks were de Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla, ceived, luted Into nndmsli and betrayed Itut not a s'ngle one of your pickets lias been caught napping or been liken by surprise To your devoted cfloits is largc'y due the revival of economic learning in litis country which lias enabled the Democratic party to assume the present admirable attitude. Your ttotk now promises much to mankind and Is aliout to break forth in complete victory for the in dustrial masses Though oft repulsed by the multitude whom we would have liberated though crucified in return for our kindness, yet thr ugh It all we have steadily confided In the righteousness of our cause nnd the final good ens.e of tlio people. We still believe lliat this nation ha3n mUsion to perfrm tthlcli bad men vsill not lie petmlttcd to de stroy, and recent events indicate that the nineteenth century is not, after all, to close with the filends of fretdom despondent In the western hemisphere. This country has recently witnessed a new I'ciittco.-t and received another baptism of fire. The recent convention at Chicago sounded n bugle-call fnr union which can iieillici be mlsiinilcrnoi il nor go uuhcciUd. In patriotic Attcrancc mid actio.) it swept uway all middle ground and opened the way to a formidable organic alliance. They not only made union possible, than heaven, tln-y have rendered it inevitable. From the very beginning of our oiganization days we made party feeling subordinate to principle. We will not here reverse ourselves nnd refuse to accept victory now so easily within our reach, Wc will not refuse the nroflcreti assistance of nt least thiee millions ficc silver Republicans simply becauso they have shown the i;ood sense to come with au rrganiml mm) lull) equulnped and army corps, flic held ol glory k open to all competitors who arc fight ing lor the same principle. The Populists have already shown their prowess in many engagements during 20 years of struggle. II our allies can strike sturdier blows at i.lulocracy than e can; if they can scale the battlements of the gold power gallantly than our old veterans and are able to plant their colors one foot nearer the citadel of the enemy than wc can ourselves, let every l'opu list cheer and support them tit their heroic work. We will nil match under the tume flag, keep step to the samo music, face the same foo, share in and shout over the same triumph, We cannot lie mistaken concerning the real issue involved in the stiugglo of the piercnt year. It is between the gold standatd, gold bonds and bank cutrency on the one liiinii, nnd the bimetallic standard, no bonds, and govern ment currenoy on the other. The people are asked to choose between enforced Idleness, destitution, debt, bankruptcy and despair on the one side, and the open door of opportu nity under just laws and normal conditions on the other, the situation presents the might iest civic question thai ever convulsed a civ ilized nation. The conflict can neither be postponed nor Avoided. In tho name of the suffering people I affirm that this is no time for dissension uor party divisions. The su preme hour for action has arrived. If we would be victorious we mUBt mako common causo with the hetoic men who dominated the Chicago convention. No other courie is either prudent or desirable. Wo are not asked to abandon our party, nor would It lie wise to uo so. 11 it is to te preserved it will, In my judgment, be compelled, to lhat course wntcn 1 am auoui to indicate, me silver Democrats have lined up at an organisation; now let the Populists, free sliver Republicans the American bilver Party do likewise. Form an embattled square-impenetrable to the as saults of the confederated gold power. After due consideration in which I have fully can vassed every possible phase of the subject. I have failed to find a single good reason to justify us in placing a third ticket In the field. The exigencies ol tho hour impera tively demand that there shall be but one. I would not endorse the distinguished gentle man named at Chicago. I would nominate thent outright and make them our own, and then share justly and rightfully in their elec tion. The situation is a striking verification ol the old adage that "the patli of duty Is the path of safety," Take this courso and all opposition will practically Hlisappcar in the southern and western states, and we can then turn our attention to other parts of the field. Take any other and you endanger the entire situation and strengthen the arm of our com mon adversary. If you nllow the present happy juncture to pass, all the heroic work of 20 years will be thrown to the winds. Our guiding hand will disappear in the moment ous conflict just when It should bo stretched forth to steady the ark of our covenant. Wo would prove to the world that we are devoid of capacity to grasp the great opportunities, and lacking in strength to grapple with prod igious emergencies. The people have a gal lant champion in the field who is leading a revolt against tho plutocracy ol Christendom, Kvejy oppressor, every plutocrat in two hem ispheres has turned his guns upon him. The subsidized organs have openly pro claimed lhat he must be ciushed by any meant at whatever cont, '1 he confederated monopolies have lain aside their parties and their politics and are marching in hot haste against him.. 1-et ui signal to hint to hold the fort lhat we are coming, and then hasten to his relief. Gentlemen, I want to say to you in all earnestness, that assailed at is this gal lant knight by the sleuth hounds of the money power of the woild, you may deliber ate here as long as you plea-e, but you can. uot prevent the people from rushing to the support of their recognized defender ami leader. If you will not say the word they will break over all testratnt and go them selves, leaders or no leaders, and may God bless them for so doing. Therefore, in obedience to my hleliest re gard to duty, with solemn conviction that I am tight, I plicc in nomination for the presi dency of tbo United States a distinguished gentleman, who, let it be remembered, has already been three timet endorsed by the Populist party of his own state one? for rep rcsentattve In congress; on.CC for United States senator, and only last weck for the presi dency, 1 name that matchless champion of tb; people, that intrepid foe of corporate greed, (hat splendid young statesman, Wil liam ).
