him to the people in every part of this
republic a man who possesses all the no
ble attributes of a nobleman, preat enough
and pood enough to he President of the
t'nitcd States. With a platform that reads
like a Bible, and with these iwo faithful

"Gentlemen of the convention, we now
present to you as the choice of the Unit
ed Democracy of our state that distin
guished statesman, thal splendid, vigor

>dlai E- Stevenson of Illinois. (Great
ami continued applause).
Mr Williams spoke rapidly and briefly,
and at his mention of Adlai E. Stevenson.
Illinois was on its feet cheering wildly.
Kansas was up, as was Alabama. Arkan
sas, Minnesota and a large number of
delegates in different parts of the house.
The applause, while vigorous, was short,
not lasting above a minute.
Hoesinu Nominated Town©.
When the roll call reached Connecticut,
that state gave way to Minnesota amid
cheers and cries of "Towne!'’ Roesing
of Minnesota then took the platform to
present the names of Charles A. Towne.
Mr Roesinp said: "Mr. Chairman and
gentlemen of the convention: It is a
great honor to be privileged to answer
■here' to the roll call of Minnesota. The
Democracy of the North Star State has a
candidate for the nomination of Vice Pres
ent to submit to the right judgment of
this convention. We come to you to pre
rent the name of man worthy of the
high honor of being placed upon the same
ticket with the splendid champion of equal
rights, whom you have named for Pres
•We Democrats of Minnesota, feel that
tve have earned the right to participate
actively and effectively In the national
councils of the party. For forty years
prior to 1898. the party had wandered in
the wilderness, but as a result of the
great contest of ’96, and because of the
splendid accessions to our ranks in that
campaign, we entered the battle of ’9B
more aggressively than ever before, and
at last realized in our own state that for
which we had striven so long and elected
e Democratic Governor.
The veterans of those campaigns now
stand shoulder to shoulder, determined
that this year the electoral vote of Minne
sota shall be cast for the nominees of
this convention. This condition was ma le
possible because of the brilliancy, cour
age and' fidelity to principle of men.
who in that memorable campaign, patri
otically put country above party and
severed their relations with the Republican
party, casting aside personal ambition,
prejudices and self-interest. '
“The man of this type, who perhaps,
sacrificed more than any one else, who
more than any other, was called to lay
upon the sacriflcai altar a brilliant future
filled with promise enough to satisfy the
vaulting ambition, who had the courage
to sever the ties of personal friendship
that he might be true to his ideals of
Americanism, is the man whom Minne
sota to-dny presents to this convention,
as its candidate for Vice President.
"We come to you asking for your sup
port for our candidate, not because he
is from Minnesota, but because of the
people; not because he is a product of the
Northwest, but because he is an American;
rot because he stands for any one issue,
hut for all the issues that mean preserva
tion of American institutions. We ask
your support of him because he is a
Democrat of Jeffersonian principle; a
Democrat of the stern school of Andrew
Jackson: a Democrat of the broad philoso
phy and humanity of Abraham Lincoln: a
Democrat in defending the flag of the Un
ion. and in believing that to whatever
land that flag may be carried, there the
people over whom it floats are under the
protecting agencies of the constitution.
We present him to you not because he
is rich in this world's goods, not because
bis nomination would mean contributions,
but because a beneficent God has endowed
him wiih an eloquent tongue, brilliant
mind, a splendid courage, a big heart, arm
all the qualities of American manhood. We
ask your support for Minnesota's able
statesman, orator and patriot, whom I
have the honor to place in formal nomi
nation as the unanimous choise of the
Minnesota Democracy, a leader of the
people. Charles A. Towne.
Mr. Boosing is a tall, powerful man with
a voice befitting his stalwart frame. He
could be heard in every direction. His
first applause was gained w hen he spoke
of Mr. Towne as a man who embodied the
best characteristics of American manhood.
When he pronounced the name of Towne.
there was cheering from the Minnesota
delegation, which rose to its feet waving
flags in frantic fashion. The. galleries
Joined in the applause with fervor, but
there was less enthusiasm among tire men
on the floor who had the voles.
A stout woman in the noarthwest corner
of the first gallery climbed upon a chair,
holding in her left hand a colored litho
graph of Bryan and Towne, while with
her right she waved a handkerchief vigor
ously. Congressman Shafroth of Colora
do. a zealous supporter of the candidacy
of Towne, climbed Into the gallery In an
effort to get the woman forward to the
platform, but she declined to come.
New Yorker* Giclted.
By degrees the enthusiasm, spread
throughout the delegations and In a short
time men were up in the states of Wash
ington. Wyoming, Montana and South Da
kota. but their number was much less
than that which had risen to the name of
Stevenson. While the galleries were en
thusing over Mr. Towne, there was an ex
citing time over at the chair of Mr. Hill.
"You must take the nomination and
save the day.” said Edward Murphy ex
"I cannot, I cannot.” replied Hill, his
fa'* white and set. "X do not want It.”
"You must take It,” said Croker.
Croker leaned over him, while Norman
B Mack and Frank Campbell held Hill,
one on each side, and urged him to ac
rept. An excited man from New Jersey,
shaking Ms fingers under Mr. Hill'e nose,
“You can’t refuse, you can't. The party
must have you to save the East."
”1 don't want U. You can name Stev
enson. He is as good as I am,” said Hill,
and then turning to Murphy and Croker
and gripping his hands, he said:
"Please don't force this, please don’t!”
Mr. Murphy then gave an indication of
an apparent scheme in the nomination,
saying to the excited Jersey man: "You
keep quiet and it will be all right. We
have It fixed.”
Meanwhile the confusion continued to
be so great in the hull that, even after
f'hairman Richardson had recognized Gov.
Thomas of Colorado, to second the nomi
nation of Mr. Towne, not a word of his
speech could be heard by other delegates
or the people In tha galleries.
finally, after Gov. Thomas ha'd been
speaking for a minute, ex-Senator White
went to the stand, and In a ringing voice,
•aid of order were not restored he would
tnova that the galleries bo cleared.
Hill Was Nominated.
When the state of Delaware was called,
the announcement was made that the
state would yield to New York. Then
tile result of the Hill conference was ap
A tremendous shout of applause swept
the hall. Delegate Grady, one of the
leaders of Tammany Hall, had already
ascended the platform, and os he stepped
to the front to address the convention
the applause and cheering increased. Kls
first sentence rang through the great
building In trumpet tones.
"On behalf of the democracy of New
York, 1 present to this convention for
nominee for the vice presidency the name
of David Rennet Hill."
It was dramatic In the extreme. The ef
ventlon in a frenzy of enthusiasm. The
scene which followed was by far tho most
tempestuous of the session and the name
of Hill echoed and re-echoed through the
hall. State standards were seized and
held aloft, and the convention was can
opied with fluttering flags and handker
chiefs. Delegates and spectators che red.
and the great structure fairly shook with
the noise when the galleries became in
fected with enthusiasm.
Mr. Hill, meantime, had worked his way
through the surging multitude to the p’at-
I form. As he ascended it. h:s hands were
eagerly grasped, and lie was escorted to
ihe seat of the iicrmanent chairman. He
asked Mr. Grady to yield to him that he
might make a statement, but Grady de
Judge Van Wyek of the New York dele
gation hurried to Mr. Hill and began an
earnest conversation with him, urging
him not to dec ine the nomination which
j evidently seemed to be within his grasp.
Hill only shook his head.
It was a pretty, even a dramatic, side
play. All the convention was pulsating
wi h enthusiasm and cheers,
i When, finally. Mr. Grady was permitted
l to proceed, he said thal Gov. Hill might
decline, but decline or not, he shouted,

"Mr. Chairman," said Senator Grady,
''on behalf ©f she united Democracy of

: convention a candidate for Vice President,
the name of David Bennett Hill. (After
! some minutes of uproarious enthusiasm,
partial quiet was restored, and he contin
''The representatives of the Democratic
party of New York state recognize their
responsibility to the Democracy of the n-
I tion, and believe they appreciate the ex-
I peetaflon of the Democracy of the Union
in the presentation of this honored name.
There is no state in the Union with so
much to gain through Democratic success,
and so much to lose by Republican triumph
as the state of New York. We are to
elect this year not only the entire state
ticket, from Governor to state engineer,
not only, as in every other state of the
t. nion, every member of Congress, but
every member of our state Senate and
every member of the assembly.
"Desirous of strengthening our hand® at
home, we desire more to strengthen the
national ticket. And w r e stand here, sev
enty-two as one, to pledge you the. elec
toral vote of the state of New York if
David B. Hill shall be the nominee of this
convention for Vice President. This is
no idle statement. We believe that David
Bennett Hill by the side of William .1.
Bryan, and standing upon this platform,
ia by thousands and thousands of votes
the strongest man that can be named to
the Democracy of New York, New Jersey
and Connecticut. (Long continued ap
plause and cheering.)
V\ idle Senator Hill on the platform wait
ed for quiet and for Senator Grady to fin
ish his speech, he kept repeating: "I will
not take it." To Senator Grady he said:
"This is absolutely unfair. You should
not do it.”
Judge VanWyck kept urging him to ac
cept and not make a declination. Hill was
obdurate. His face was like marble, his
hand trembled and he wiped the perspira
tion from his brow. While Grady was
speaking'. Hill asked to see Senator Jones,
and when the Chairman of the Nationa:
Committee came, the ex-Senator said to
"Jones, stop this thing. It is not wise.
It should not be forcted upon me. Help
me stop it."
Chairman Jones said: "I will help you.
Go on and decline, and I'll help you our.
I'li see the delegation leaders. You are
right. Go on and make your speech."
Then Senator Hill advanced to the plat
form. He stood with head bowed a few
minutes, expressive of gratitude for the
cheers that rolled in heavy volume to
ward him from every part of the hall,
and when the chance came for his voice
to be heard, he said:
Wliat Hill Hnd to gay.
Senator Hill said: "Mr. President and
Gentiemc-n of the Convention (great ap
plause): While I greatly appreciate the
action of the delegation from New York,
it is proper for me to say that it is with
out my approval. (Cries of "No. no!")
1 appreciate also the manifestations of
friendliness on the part of delegates from
other states, but I feel that it is my duty
to rise here and now and say to you
that, for personal reasons and good and
valid reasons, I cannot accept this nomi
nation. (Great applause and cries of
"No! No!” and "You have got to take
it!”) I have not been a candidate. I
do not desire to be a candidate, and I
must not be nominated by this conven
tion. (Renewed applause and cheering,
and cries of “You must! You must!")
“There are gentlemen present whose
names have been or will be presented to
this convention, one of which names is
stronger than my own. (Cries of “No!
No!") There is no difficulty whatever
with making a satisfactory choice, and I
must not, in Justice to them, permit my
name to be used a single moment fur
ther, and this convention should proceed
to nominate a candidate from some of
those who have been named. In justice
to me. in Justice to them, in justice to
the party, in justice to the ordinary pro
cedure of this convention, it Is unfair to
me to place me in this position without

When he said clearly and firmly: “I
did not come into this convention as a
candidate, I did not expect to be a can
didate, and cannot accept the honor,”
again came the cries of “Ye*, you can,”
in greater volume than before, but they
had not the slightest effect.
He left the platform, cheered to the
echo and surrounded by bis friends, who
pressed forward to grasp his hand.
Hutchinson of Georgia.
When Georgia was called Mr. Hutchin
son of thal state, who spoke briefly and
clearly, delivered a short speech in sec
onding the nominalion of Stevenson.
"Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the
Convention: 1 represent the delegation
of the Empire State of the South; the
state that under any and all circum
stances will roll up a large Democratic
majority, regardless of what the plat
form is or who the candidates are.
(Laughter and applause.)
"Fellow Democrats, this being true,
we have only one purpose in view in this
convention, and that Is to aid you. If pos
sible, in naming a ticket with which we
can win In the coming campaign. (Ap
plause.) In this matter we have
no way of Judging tho future but by the
past, and Judging by the past, I desire
to s cond the nominallcn of a man who
has been elected to the vice presidency
of these United States, and who, in my
judgment, if nominated by this conven
tion tc-day, will meet with similar suc
cess in November, lie Is a man true and
loyal to h!a party, both before and after

with promptness and precision the dis
tinction between a Democrat and a.Re

commands the napect and admiration of

matchless Bryan as our Itader, they will

While the changes of the various state*
were being made, pandemonium reigned
in the hall. Delegates and alternates
stood on their chairs, and throughout
the galleries people were standing and
cheering. Practically the entire delega

and other spectators who had been stand

and a lot of special officers and pages,
swarmed over the delegates' section.
When order had been partially restored,
the floor section of the hall bore more
the appearance of a miscellaneous gather
ing than of a political convention.

and the police had the utmost difficulty

were finally forced to their seat* or out
of the building.

unable to outline his programme in the
slightest way. Nor was he able to say

Mr. Bryan had a number of callers to
day, all coming to extend congratulations
and express gratification over his nomina

in the outcome of the struggle for second

nomination. When the bulletin came an

soon after dictated the following:
“Mr. Htevenson is an excellent man for
the place. He supported the ticket In ?596
and can defend the platform of 1900.
•Towne would have strengthened the
ticket in the stales where there is fusion
between the Democrats, Populists and
Silver Republicans, but the support given
Mr. Htevenson shows the convention

man. The choice has fallen upon one who

Mr. Bryan then sent the following mes
“Lluooln, Neb. July 6, I9oo.—Hon. Adlai
E. Stevenson, Bloomington, 111.: Accept
congratulations upon your nomination. It
was a deserved recognition of parly ser

-A 11 through the day telegrams of con
gratulation poured in on the presidential
candidate. Mr. Bryan definitely decided
not to go to Kansas City to-day, after
he hnd a con versa tion over the telephone
with members of the National Commit

have him attend and make a speech to
the convention as a fitting climax was
unusually strong, but Mr. Bryan has
himself steadily advised against it. He
finally brought around the Democratic
managers <0 his way of thinking.
Mr. Bryan this evening received the fol
"Minnetonka Beach, July 6.—Accept my
congratulations upon your unanimous
nominauoi . Adlai Stevenson.”
Mr. Bryan said he expected a number
of visitors, some prominent in the coun

Cleveland. 0., July 6 —Senator Hanna,
when asked for an expression on (ho
Democratic platform, said:
“From wha( I have read, T can see that
it Is a cunningly devised scheme to catch
Ihe unwary and the unthinking votara. I
think the most labored effort In their doc

expansion and Imperialism. It Is rather
amusing lo see their line of demnrkat'.on;
they apparently rely upon Ihe constitu
tional question to establish that difference
as to whether the flag follow© the consti
tution or the constitution follows he flag.
We are iierfectly willing to mce ttbat is
sue on their own hypothesis. Bo far as
the free silver plank Is concerned, X
think all Republicans will be satisfied with
that. It Is certainly satisfactory to me.

were lined with people, and Gov. Roose

the streets adjacent were literally parked
with humanity when the Governor alight

clamorous for a speech, and when some
