Philadelphia, June 21.—President McKin
ley was unanimously renominated for
President of the United States by the
Republican National Convention at 1:48
o'clock to-day, and an hour and ten min
utes later. Gov. Theodore Roosevelt of
New York, was unanimously selected to
stand beside him in the coming battle.
There was a fine setting for to-day's
spectacular drama. Bright peonies at
cither end of the stage made two flaming
bits of color. Over the vast multitude
fens moved ceaselessly to and fro, like the
pinions of a cloud of alarmed gulls beat
ing the air.
v There were no preliminaries. The wran
gle expected over the question of reducing
the representation in the South, was
averted by the withdrawal of ex-Sonator
Quay’s proposition. The great hall be
came quiet as Senator Lodge, standing
before 15,000 eager faces, gavel in hand,
announced that nominations for President
of the United States were in order.
The reading clerk advanced to the front
of the platform. He was about to call
the roll of state® for the presentation of
candidate®. When Alabama was called, a
thin, red-whiskered delegate from that
state arose and surrendered the first right
to speak to Ohio. A flutter of handker
chiefs filled the air and a cheer went up
from the delegates in the. pit as Senator
Foraker of Ohio, the ideal of militant Re
publicanism, strode toward the platform.
Foraker is a grand looking man, with
something of the imperiousness of Blaine
and the dash of a Rupert about him. Thr>
air was surcharged with electricity as he
mounted the steps and when he turned
about, standing there with gray eyes
calmly sweeping the cheering thousands,
the magnetic orator must have been con
scious of his power to call up a storm that
would sweep through the amphitheatre.
Below him. about him on either side, were
banked men and women almost frantically
waving hats, handkerchiefs, and pampas
plumes. In full view* of the convention he
stood erect, his face as inflexible as
though chiselled in marble, waiting for
the applause to cease. When quiet was re
stored he began to speak.
The Hurricane Started.
He began to call up the hurricane from
the start. Whenever he raised his arms
aloft the whistling of the gale ran round
the hall. When he said the nomination
had already been made, that Wolcott and
Lodge and'the platform had each in turn
named his candidate, a great cheer went
up. When he said his candidate was the
first choice of every man who desired Re
punlican success in November, the roar
was like the rush of a heavy sea through
a rocky cavern.
The orator was silenced by his own
words. Then he began again, speaking
as few men can. His audience was thrill
ed. and when he concluded by placing Mc-
Kinley in nomination, not in behalf of
Ohio, but in behalf of all the states and
territories, a clap of thunder shook the
building. Below him, all about him, were
deafening roars. In the pit the delegates
and alternates were cheering enthusiasti
cally. Over the acres of spectators bed
lam reigned. The hall was an angry sea
of tossing color. Flags, red, white and
blue plumes shot up as If by magic to crest
the waves. Hats were lifted aloft on
canes. Umbrellas were hoisted and twisted
until they resembled whirling dervishes.
On the press platform the newspaper
men with watches out were counting' the
minutes. On the stage Senator Hanna, his
handkerchief in one hand, a fan In the
other, was spurring the vast assemblage
to new endeavors. The raging storm did
not seem to excite him. He seized a plume
•nd whirled it about his htad like a gen
eral leading his men to the charge.
All at once a delegate bearing the stand
ard of Kentucky rushed forward to the
stage. The effect was magical. Standards
of the states were torn loose and yelling
delegates climbed upon ihe platform to
rally around their Bader. With state
guidons pointed to a common center they
made a canopy over ihe head of the
Warwick of the Republican party. Ohio
interlocked her staff with New York,
Maine figuratively kissed h r hand to Cal
ifornia, and Minnesota saluted Texas.
Then higher still climbed Hanna.
It Wai Comparatively Uriel.
He mounted a table where he could Icok
out on the cheering multitude. Beside him
suddenly appeared a young girl arrayed
in the national colors. At this sight the
ch-eers redoubled. The music of the or
chestra was drowned in the awful din
Thd demonstration had now continued
with scarcely a lull for ten minutes. Chair
man Lodge began to rap for order, but
the ring of his gavel was of no avail. A
Texas delegate shouted above the roar
"Three cheers for Mark Hanna!” They
were given with a will. Then a delegate
with Ohio’s standard in his hafid dove into
the main aisle and went careening to
ward the rear to the music of “John
Brown's body lies mouldering In the
grounds." The bearers of the standards
of the other states plunged after him.
Down the aisle they swung, starting the
whole slorm afresh. When they reached
the main entrance they were met by men
holding aloft a gigantic papier-mache el -
phant with the national colors entwine 1
about its neck. Then the procession cam-'
back and circled Ihe pit. For Severn!
minutes this parade continued.
The demonstration all told lasted exact
ly fifteen minutes. In length of time It
does not compare with the prolonged
cheer which went up for Grant In 18-0 or
Blaine in 1888 or for McKinley in 1898. It
is also suipassed in length of time by
demonstrations at Democratic conven
Bat Roosevelt Got It.
This protracted outburst was but the
forerunner of the pandemonium that
reigned a ratnrnt later when R osevelt
the man of the hour, mounted the plat
form to secot and the President's nomlna
ti n. When the eonvenllr.n onusht sigh’
of him It w. nt off again like a rocket. As
he stood there facing the yelling multi
tude the roar could be heard for blocks.

< mly once did. his face relax. That was
when he caught sight of his wife
who sat in the reserved seats
overhanging the pit on his
right. Then he smiled till his teeth show
ed and Mrs. Roosevelt fluttered back
her handkerchief. When finally he was
allowed to begin, he plunged direct.y to
the heart of his subject in the impetuous
way which the people so much evimire.
Hi- first statement was that he would
second the. nomination of William McKin
ley. who had faced more problems than
my President since Lincoln. The conven
tion got on its feet, and it was several
minutes before he could proceed. Every
movement and every word was chare■'*-
teristie of the man. He looked, spoke and
acted like one giving direction to an army
about to go into battle. And nothing
would content him but to storm the. bights
as he did at Santiago. He had the manu

When Chairman Lodge made the an

renominated for the term beginning March

Gov. Roosevelt, drove from the conven

Scenes and Incidents Attendant on
Convention Hall, Philadelphia, June 21.
This was the great day and long before
10 o'clock, the hour set for the reassem
bling of the convention, the hall was sur
rounded by an immense army of people,
who besieged ell the doors and entrances,
clamoring for admission.
tYhen the doors were opened they surg
ed in like a flood submerging the vast
hall. The stage had been freshened with
green things, and at each corner, like a
touch of flaming color, red peonies shot
into the air.
One old fellow In the gallery, with
charming disregard of the proprieties, di
vested himself of float ond vest, hung
them over the rail and took his seat.
Three minutes before 10, the Kansas
delegation, headed hy Col. Burton, with
bright silk sun flowers pinned to their
lapels, aroused the first enthusiasm, as
they marched down the main aisle bear

letter with the words “Kansas is for
Gov. Roosevelt entered at exactly 10
o’clock. He road a rush of it to-day, hut
he did not escape the keen eye of the
thousands and they set up a cheer at eight
of him. He was surrounded by the dele
gates when he reached the pit and show
ered with congratulations. He made no
protestations or dissent, but sml ingly re
peated his thanks. One, gray-haired dele
gate put his arms around the Governor
and whispered in his ear. All states were
represented in the welcome wi:h Kansas,
the indomitable Roosevelt pioneer, lead
ing the demonstration.
Hanna Greet* Roosevelt.
A few minutes later another outburst
greeted the entrance of Senator Har.na.
His progress was impeded all the way
down the aisle by delegates who insisted
upon shaking his hand. He stopped a
moment to chat with Senator Davis, ond
when he reached the standard of the New
York delegation, where Roosevelt was
holding a levee, he pushed through the
throng and greeted the Rough Rider
warmly, even affectionately. With Ms
hand upon Roosevelt's shoulder, he whi—
pered in his ear. For two minutes they
remained thus In close communion.

it was Matthew Stanly Quay who aroused

reached the stage at 10:15 and there, was

poel than a soldier; Mark Hanna, Senator
Chandler. Julius Caesar Burrows, Mayor
Ashbridge, Charles Emory Smith, John R
Lynch, the colored ex-congressman from
Mississippi, and a score of others were
busy perfecting the finale for the day.
At 10:20 the big band from Canton, 0.,
the President’s home, made its way into
the hail from the west side and broke out
with the pealing strains of the national
anthem. The whole audience rose to its
feet and stood until it was concluded.
