Two weeks later the Democrats will
incut at Chicago. As it looks now, thesu
conventions will !o tho most interesting
in the history of our country. Year
after year these (treat conventions in
crease in magnitude anil grow in dra
matic nnd sensational importance. They
are becoming more important than cou-

gross itself, and though they do their
work in a few days, they not only choose
tho president for the coming four years,
but in their platforms control legisla
tion and direct tho efforts of parties.
Tho first great convention in this coun
try, tho one which showed the possibili
ties of theso gatherings of political lay
men, was held in Chicago in lSim, when
Abraham Lincoln was nominated. Prob
ably tho world never saw a more po
tential gathering than tlds. It left its
mark on all time. It brought on tho
rebellion, freed tho slave, changed tho
It is odd that the nominations in Dem
ocratic conventions are not so bitterly
contested as in Republican conventions,
notwithstanding tho fact that in the
former tho two-thirds rule naturally
contributes to the stubbornness of the
coldest. In 1870 Bluiiio was then the
rising ni'in of his party. As representa
tivu and speaker ho had attained phe
nomenal popularity. Nearly every ono
believed ho would Im nominated.
But between him and Itoscoo Coukling
there had sprung up bitter personal en
mity, growing out of the famous
"Turkey gobbler" speech Of Blaine's a
few years before. Conkling, with much
of tho power of the Grant administra
tion behind him, went to the convention
with no other purpose in view than the
defeat of Blaine. He became a candi
date himself, not witli tho hope of being
nominated, but that ho might better
contend against his adversary. Bristow,
who as secretary of tho treasury had
won fame in the prosecution of tho
whisky ring, was strongly supported.
Encouraged by tho Conkling war on
Blaine, three states put forward their
fuvorito b'jns Pennsylvania naming
Hnrtrauft, Indiana Morton and Oldo
In tho light of subsequent events it is
almost pitiful to look back to this con
vention. Blaino was clearly tho popular
choice, and would have been nominated
but for a succession of accidents. First,
if Pennsylvania, deftly encouraged by
Blaino's enemies, had not put Hartranft
forward, Blaino would have been
chosen, as Pennsylvania was enthusias
tically for him, and gave him her vote
when it was too late. Second, if there
had not been in tho convention a certain
obscure but bright Ohioan, now holding
ofilco in this city, Blaine would have
been chosen. This Ohioan had faith in
Hayes, and saw an opportunity to do
him 801110 good. Ho went to tho friends
of Governor Morton, of Indiana, and
proposed to them that when the danger
of a "break" came, Ohio and Indiana
were to join hands for tho one of their
candidates who was at that tiino tho
On tho first ballot Morton had 125
votes nnd stood next to Blaine. But his
friends made tho mistake of throwing
all their strength on tho first roll call.
On the second ballot thoy lost, and Bris
tow passed Morton. Hayes had started
with only 05 votes, but he held his own;
and after tho fourth ballot, when other
states had retired for consultation, Ohio
sent word to Indiana that the time had
come. Ou tho fifth ballot a part of tho
DIHKCTINO TIIK. W.AINT. TUMIM-ST.
Indiana delegates went to Hayes, giving
him KM to Morton's 05. Tho next bal
lot Hayes gained more from tho same
source, and on the seventh Indiana led
tho mighty "break" to Hayes, wlitoh re
sulted in his nomination over Blaino,
thoflgurts beingIWi toil51.
The itopublican convention ,of 1880
was a rcmnrkiiblwst ruggle. Hero Conk
ling and' Blaino went again, tho great
combatants, Conkling was there in per
son leading the Granf forces. 'Sherman
matlo his first appearance as a presiden
tial candidate. Kdmunds, Washburno
and Windom went the others. Gallant
was tho struggle between the Blaino and
Grant forces. For the latter liUO men
stood from first to last liko tho Old
Guard; 275 men rallied about tho Blaine

standard. For two days tho battle con
tinued. Through thlrtydlvo ballots there
was little change Grant's highest Vote
being Hill and Blaine's 281.
In tho convention, conspicuous in nil
debates, leader of tho struggle ngaiu.it
the unit rule which only the Grant iiinn
favored and ail the others opposed, was
James A. Garfield. How tho conven
tion, weary of the bitter conflict, sought
solution of its tfront problem by bW'ig
iug Garfield to tho front in an incom
parable whirlwind, is history. The anti
Grant forces had simply united tc de
feat a third term.
In the last four conventions of Democ
racy there have been but six ballots.
Tihlen won on the second at St. Louis,
Hancock on the second at Cincinnati,
Cleveland on the second at Chicago, and
was renominated by acclamation nt St.
Louis. It. the hist four conventions of
tho Republican party there have been
no fewei than fifty-five ballots, Hayes
being nominated on the seventh, G-ir-fleld
on the thlity-sixth, Blaino on the
fourth and Harrison on tho eighth.
Without exception, the candidate who
entered tho Democratic conventions witli
tho largest number of votes has won the
prize. Only ono of tho leading candi
dates in the Republican conventions of
tho last sixteen years has achieved suc
cess Blaine, in 1881.
This year, unless all signs fail, history
will bo reversed. At Minneapolis the
Republicans are likely to muko short
work of it naming Blaino or Hariisou
in tho first two or three ballots. At Chi
cago all tho politicians aro expecting
for the first time in many years in a
Democratic convention a bitter, pro
tracted struggle. If choice bo niado in
less than eight or ten ballots there will
be general surprise.
A ballot in a national convention!
What memories tho phrase calls up,
what scenes of excitement, tension, ex
pectancy, hearts beating faster, hearts
almost ceasing to beat at nlll "Thosoc
retnry will call the roll of states," com
mands tho presiding olllcer. A hush
follows. There is something strange in
the air. Tho states aro assembled bo
low, each marked by its banner. Never
before has the sisterhood of states ap
peared so impressive; never before hu e
you watched witli such eager eyes, lis
tened with Mich straining ears as now.
A president in to be made.
There is nothing else in a national con
vention to compare with this roll call of
tho stall's. It is quiet, orderly, unac
companied as a rule by applause or
other demonstrations; but majestic, aw
ful in its tension, its potentiality. Next
to tho balloting in interest is the ap
plause. When a wave of applause of
human feeling manifesting itself in
cries, in waving of hands, huts, humlker-

chiefs, flags, banners rolls through ono
of theso vast audiences, the most impas

made to suffer with the sensation of
physical and mental expansion, of inex
plicable inflation, as if all the particles
of his being were endeavoring to sepa
rate themselves one from another and

Theso waves of applause are well rec
ognized weapons in national conven
tions. The nomination of Lincoln in
tho Wigwam, with nil tho mighty con
sequences that followed in its wake,
was won with a ciibtcnt, planned and
irresistible whirlwind of demonstration.
The great politicians of tho cast, the
trained leaders, were for Seward, and

and finally overthrown by an artfully
contrived western cyclone. From that
day to tliis the coup d'noiso has been a
well recognized factor in national con
ventions. In the Chicago convention of 188-1 the
Blaine whirlwind was directed it was
not necessary to organize it by Carson
Lake, now the brilliant political writer
of tho Now York Press. Ho stood on
the secretary's platform anil deftly di
rected the storm witli his handkerchief
for a baton, taking care that it should
break forth at the right time and stop
short of weariness iiiul absurdity.
A iiiemovai.i scene was that in the
Democratic convention of 1881. Cleve
land was strongly in tho lead and the
convention had adjourned for the night.
Shrewd, alert, masterful Dan Manning
received word that something unusii il
was going on in Ben Butler's room.
Evidently a plot was being hatched.
What was it? Who could ascertain?
"Leave it to me," snid a young delegate
from Illinois, William A. Day. Outsid
Butler's room was an iron balcony.
Hero Day took up his station looked,
listened. All is fair in war anil polities.
Before midnight lie reported to Manning:
"Butler, Kelly and their crowd will to
morrow attempt to stampede the con
vention to Hendricks. They will pack
tho galleries and set loose a cyclone."
In an hour all the Cleveland leaders
wcro put on their guard, "No matter
what happens in tlie convention tomor
row, keep your h):ids; stand firm; keep
cool."' Tho word was passed along.
When the storm broke -ami a magnifi
cent, inspiring, electrical storm it was
the Cleveland delegates sat unmoved.
When tho wind ceased, the thunder was
silent and the sun camo out thoy pro
ceeded quietly anil easily to tho nomina
tion of Cleveland. But for the iiou bal

hotel. It was of greater value then than
now, as it was in tho days of stages, and
Lebanon was an important station on

briefly, "We must have turkeys." Young
Drake thought his job depended upon it
and ho waited until night, when he Mole
