For Vioe President,

Kansas City, July 7. The I'inonit
le national ti k-t was oinilit-l yes
terday by tin; nomination of Adlal 11.
SteVensoD for vice pivsi.h iit. Tin- nom
ination was iii:nl on the liist ballot,
state after state joining In the wild

of approval as liatl luarkeil the
proeeetliuus at previous stages, al
though the result followed a spirited
and at times highly dramatic rout est
between the advocates of Stevenson,
Tuwne. Hill and the lesser candidates.
The distinct triumph of the day iu the
way of a inipular ovation was that ac

to the platform and in tones which left
no doubt of their sincerity earnestly
besought the convention not to make
hilii the nominee. Anticlpatiuthecluse
of the convention the general public
was admitted freely to the hall, and as
a result the reat crowd tilled every
available seat in the arena and aisles
and overflowed into the arena reserved
for delegates, while some more adven

girders and looked down from a dizzy
height on the :.n,tMio people packed be

On the call for nominations Alabama
yielded to Minnesota, and the latter
state presented its young champion of
Silver Republicanism and Democracy
Charles A. Towne. The mention of
his name was the signal for a flatter
ing demonstration in his honor, men
aud women joining in the outburst.
Far off in a corner of the auditorium a
young woman could be seen frantically
waving iu one hand a lithograph of the
Mlimesotan and in the other the stars
and stri's. It was noticeable that it
did not evoke any widespread enthus
iasm among those who were alout to
do the voting, but for ten minutes the
demonstration to Towne lasted with
varying degrees of intensity.

Meantime attention was being di
rected to an excited group massed in
front of the New York section with
Hill as the vortex of a struggling
throng of delegates. They pressed
forward from all quarters of the hall,
urging him to permit his name to be
placed before the convention. The
luce of the New Yorker was a study
as the demands upon him came from
all sides. He sat in the front row of
delegates, with ex-Senator Murphy on
his right ami Judge Van Wyck on his
immediate left. A second seat away
was Croker. 1 1 ill protested vocifer
ously. Judge Van Wyck said he could
not refuse. Murphy and Croker
pleaded with hi in to obey the will of
the convention and accept. While the
pleadings continued the call of Dela

Delaware jielded her place to New
At this the bulky form of Senator
Grady, the silver-tongued orator of
New Y'ork, pushed through the dense
ly packed aisles up to the platform.
There was a hush through the hall
to hear what word New York had to
offer. -In behalf of the United Dem
ocracy of New York," shouted Grady,
"I present as a candidate for vice
president the name of David Bennett
The effect was electrical and a tidal
wave of enthusiastic approval swept
over the convention. Delegates stood
on their chairs and waved frantically
not in a few scattered groups, but
in solid phalanxes. Flags and stand
ards were again mingled in triuinuhaut
procession wane a roar as from
Niagara pulsated through the great
structure. Grady stood there waiting
for the storm to subside. But as he

could see linn appeal to ttraay to

apparent from the shake of his head
ami his advance to the front of the
platform to continue his nominating
speech. When the demonstration had
HiNsided Grady completed his speech
placing Hill before the convention.
But as he stepied from the platform
the man who had just been placed In
nomination took his place. The senator
looked out sternly, even savagely, on
the shouting thousands. When he
could be heard he made due acknowl
edgment of the honor done him. "But
I cannot, I must not, be the nominee
of this convention," he declared with
explosive emphasis. He was frequent
ly interrupted with enthusiastic shouts
of approval, but when he left the
platform the delegates were flrmly
convinced from his words and manner
that he was sincerely desirous rf bar-

tins alone which prevented a nomina
tion by acclamation then and there
for the tempestuous spirit manifested,
showed that the convention was on the
point of being carried off its feet.
STEVENSON I SECOND CHOICE.
With Hill Oat or xhe Way Slevenon
Sweeps the llamfil.
It was soon apapreut that with Hill
out Stevenson was a strong favorite.
State after state seconded his nomina
tion Georgia, Indiana. Virginia. Iowa,
Kentucky, Illinois. Some of the de
voted friends of Hill still maintained
their allegiance to him, and the delega
tions of New. Jersey, Louisiana, and
some others seconded his nomination,
Maryland bringing forward Governor
John Walter Smith, Washington nam
ing James Hamilton Lewis, North Car
olina nominating Colonel Julian Carr,
and Ohio presenting the name of A. W.
I'atrick. It was after 2 p. m. when
the seconding speeches were concluded
and the balloting began. As the roll
was alKHit to be called Lewis appeared
on the platform and In few well chos
en words withdrew from the contest.
The vote was followed with Intense
interest, for when Alabama annonunced
three for Stevenson and nineteen for
Hill it looked as though a close ami ex
citing contest was to occur. But it was
soon evident that Stevenson had a
strong lead. At the close of the call he
had TtZAiVz votes, which, however, was
not enough to nominate, the requisite
two thirds being 021. 1 1 ill had received
2K votes and Towne K)Y2. But before
the announcement of the result n.
strong lunged delegate from Tennessee
stood on his chair and announced:
"Tennessee changes her twenty-four
votes from Hill to Stevenson." -
That started the tide irresistibly to
ward Stevenson. From every quarter
of the hall came demands for recogni
tion. Alabama changed to Stevenson;
California did the same. North Caro
lina changed from Carr to Stevenson.
Even New Y'ork finally and reluctantly
announced its change from Hill to Ste
venson. That ended it. Stevenson's
nomination was assured, although for
some time longer the various states
continued to record their changes from
Towne and other candidates to Steven
son. In the end the nomination was
made unanimous. Its . announcement
was greeted with enthusiasticapproval

SILVKK KKI'1'ItI.ICAX ACTION.
Kansas City, Mo.. July 7. After a
long and exciting debate the national
convention of the Silver Republican
party adjourned sine die without
making a nomination for vice presi
dent, the whole matter leing referred
to the national committee with power
to act. W. J. Bryan was made the
unanimous choice of the convention
for president. The action of the
Democratic convention in nominating
Stevenson for vice president pre
cipitated a long debate. For two
hours Teller, Sliafiotli of Colorado,
Cheadle of Indiana, and others made
speeches in favor of indorsing the
Democratic ticket, but it was not until
Towne himself appeared and appealed
to the convention to concentrate their
forces that the delegates calmed down,
and the vice presidential nomination
was referred to the national commit
tee. The national committee of the Silver
Republicans organized by electing D.
C. Tillotson, of Kansas, chairman, and
General K. S. Corser. of Minnesota,
secretary-treasurer. Senator Dubois
offered a resolution pledging the sup
port of the Silver Republicans to Adlal
K. Stevenson, but there was opposi
tion and action was postioned until
after a conference with the committee
apiointed by the Democratic conven
tion. The Silver Republican platform de

Considerable Excitement In Happy
Hollow Over a Mtssloff Child Which
Was Found After an Hour's Search.
From Saturday's Daily.
A young man who is employed in the
big cut by the Stoddard Grading com
pany came to town la9t evening; to
have a good time. He soaked up plenty
of liquor, and when he had gotten
enough on board to mnke him stagger.
he wandered out on Main street to let
tho peopl get a good looK at him.
M irhal Slater arrived on the scene
about this time, and politely notified
the young "eport" that the best thing
that could happen to him would
be to forthwith make tracks
for home, tho officer even consenting
to accompany him. Ilowever.the man
had come down to have a good time,
and ho 'lowed no one had bettor inter
fere with him, much lets request hira
to go hom 3.
Tho fellow seemed determined to
stand his ground, but the marshal
grabbed him by the collar and before
the ffllow fully realized what had hap
pened ho was rquinting through the
bars of the jail.
Tho sum of $5.30 was deposited in the
police fund this morning- and the man
was allowed to go his way. The ex
periences of this man ought to be an
object lcst-on to others who may take a
notion to paint tho town red.
Thought Her Child Was Lost.
There whs a great deal of excite
ment up in Happy Hollow about 9
o'clock last night. Just about the
time it commenced to rain Mrs.
Chirles Ilarneka discovered that her
eight-year-old daughter was missing,
and fearing that tho child was lost in
the timber, sho proceeded to spread
In a short time nearly every inhab
itant in that part of town had
joined the almost distracted mother in
the search for her missing child. The
timber and hazel brush for half a mile
arouud was searched high and low,
hut not the slightest trace of the miss
ing child was visible. After a consul
tation, it was decided to m:vle a more
thorough examination of tho Ilaraska
premises, and to tho great surprise
and delight of the mother and the
rest of tho searchers, tho little girl
was found cosily tucked away beneath
the covers of her bed. Sho was sound
asleep, and her little arm gently en
circled a pet kitten, which was also
sleeping. The search continued for
about an hour.

A sore heals promptly when the blood is in good condition, but normi if it Is diseased. The
tendency of these old sores and ulcers is to grow worse, spreading and eating deeper into the flesh.
They are a constant drain upon the system, gradually but surely ruin the health and sap the very life.
A person's capacity for work or pleasure is soon lost in the great desire and search for something to cure.
S. S. S. makes a rapid and permanent cure of old sores and ulcers, and is the only medicine that
does, because no other can reach deep-seated blood troubles. Ordinary Sarssparilla and potash mixtures
are too weak and watery to overcome a deadly poison that has taken possession of the blood. Do not
waste valuable time experimenting with them.
