dent Melvinley was unanimously re
nominated for president of the United
States by the republican national con
vention at 1:48 p.m., and an hour and
ten minutes later Governor lheoilore
Itnosevtlt of New York was unani
mously selected to stand beside him
in the coming battle.
The scenes attending the selections
were tumultuous. Sucb unanimous
demonstrations in honor of the nomi
nees of a national convention have
never bean equalled, perhaps, in the
history of politics in this country. It
was a love feast, a jubilee, a ratitica-
The great hall became quiet as Sen
ator Lodge, star ding before 15,000 eager
faces, gavel in hand, announced that
nominations for president of the Uni
ted States were in order. The reading
clerk advanced to the frout of the plat
form. He was about to call the roll of
states for tho presentation of candi
dates. When Alabama was called a
thin, red-whiskered delegate from that

right to speaic to Ohio. A llutter of
handkerchiefs lilled the air and a cheer
went up from the delegates iu the pit
as Senator Foraker of Ohio, the idol of
tho militant republicanism, strode to
When quiet was restored ho began to
speak. It was not yet noon but the sun
was blazing through the roof, shooting
his darts and arrows into all parts of
tho hall. With resonant ringing voice
and graceful gesture, Foraker stilled
the noise. Kven the pages and atten
dants crouched down ns they gazed at
When he said his candidate was the
Mil choice of every man who desired
republican success in November tho
roar was like the rush of a heavy sail
through a rocky civern. Tho orator
was Mlcnecd by his own words. His
audience was thrilled They sat like
men under a spill. He dropped a
word here, a word there, like sparks
upon a sun-dried stubble, titid when he
concluded by placing McK nley in
nomination, not in behalf of Ohio, but
of all the sta.es and territories, a clap
of thunder shook the building. The
nomination was immediately seconded
by Uoosevelt of New York, Thurston
of Nebraska, Yerxos of Kentucky and
Gov. Mount of Indiana. The roll oal!
.showed 0110 votes for McKinluy out of
J.'iO votes in thtrVniivention.

A Pleasant Surprise.
Mrs. (iraliain gave her mother, Mrs".
Dr. Kuckwell, a very pleasant surprise
party hut Monday night. She had
planned ii and given out the invita
tions, then on the evening stated
they went out riding. When they
came bai'k Dr. Rockwell said, "Let Us
get a dish ot ice cream before wo go tip
to our rooms." "Oh! no," said Mrs.
Graham. "We will get, that later.'
At tho door of her rooms the Dr. saw a
light from the transom and said, "Oht
there is some 0110 here," thinking it
was her other daughter. Uut wheai
she opened tho door and saw tho yooniv
tilled with ladies all eager to welcoti
her, hor surprise showod in looks and
words. The ladios were very pleasant
ly entertained with games and puzzles,
Mrs. Graham introducing the famous
Dewey puzzle. At a late hour all wore
invited to go down to Iionso's and see
what they could iind to eat. That f.
mom cnterer served them with his do
lioious ico urenw and somo very lino
cako, after which they wended their

darkness by tho lantern of a philan
thropist. The ladies prcsont represen
