Philadelphia June 21 tllO P M
Special to Tun Nnws Amid a sceno
of enthuFioEtu which has seldom if evor
been equnlled nt a nominating conven
tion the republican national convention
this afternoon placed in nomination
Wm McKinley of Ohio for president
and Govenor Theodore Roosevelt of
New York for vice president the former
by tumultuous acclamation and the lat
ter with lucking but one vote of being
President McKiuleys name was
placed before the convention this after- j
noon by Senator Foraker of Ohio in a
brilliant and effective speech Gov
ernor Roosevelt of New York seconded
the senators nomination and at 1241
in a burst of enthusiasm that threat 1
cned to dissipate the mammoth building
in which the convention was held
President McKinley was unanimously
renominated by acclamation as tho
standard bearer of the republican forces
during the campaign of 1900
When order had been restored tho
convention was literally carried off its
feet by Lafe Young of Iowa who placed
in nomination for vico president Gov
Theodore Roosevelt of Now York On J
roll call the dashing Rougli Rider re 1
oved 92 votes one delegate refusing I
to vote
The convention then adjourned
Early yesterday Chairman Hanna saw
that it was impossible to stem tlm drift
of sentiment toward Roosevelt and at
last gave a reluctant consent that ho bo
the nominee and it was then a foregone
conclusion that he would be the choice
of tho convention
Party leaders did not expend all their
enthusiasm at the convention but are
enthusiastic in support of its action and
believe that with McKinley and Roose
velt as the party leaders a wave of en
thusiasm will sweep over the country
that will culminate in an election this
fall by a leiord breaking majority
Other Candidate Withdraw In Favor of
the ltuugh Killer Hero
Philadelphia Juno 21 Sonator
Hanna authorized the following The
administration has had no candidate
for vice president It has not bem for
or against any oandidate It has deemed
that thb convention should make the
candidato and that has been my posi
tion throughout It has been a freo
field for all In these circumstances
eeveral eminent Republicans have been
proposed all of thorn distinguished
Ifbota by Rice
men with many friends I will now
Kay that ou behalf of all these candi
dates and I except none that I havo
within the last 12 hours been aeked to
give my advice After consulting with
m many delegates m poMible in tho
time wlthia mj tJtyce I tare
ciuaen to accept tho responsibility in
volved in this request In tho present
situation with tho strong and earnest
Bontimcnt of tho delegates from all
parts of tho country for Governor
Roosevelt and since President McKiu
loy is to bo renominated without a dis
senting voice it is my judgment that
Govornor Roosevelt should bo nominated
for vice president with tho samo unan
Philadelphia Juno 21 lrosidout
MoKiuloy was not nominated at tho
see of tho Republican national con
vention yesterday but today will wit
ness in all probability tho un paralleled
spoctaclo of both tho presidential and
vico presidential candidates being nomi
nated by acclamation Sonntor I latin a
threw np tho spongo yesterday Ho
found ho could not stem tho tide of tho
popular favorite withont using tho
direct influence of tho administration
at Washington and this ho could not
get Possibly oven with it ho might
havo failed Out without it the task
was hopeless Tho president would
have no hand in an effort to control tho
convention Ho inndo known directly
to Mr Hanna his wish that tho will of
tho convention should not be thwarted
and when that unequivocal time came
Mr Hanna abandoned tho fight With
hiB retirement from the contest against
the Empire state governor both nomina
tions could havo been mado before tho
convention adjourned yesterday Tho
original program was to renominate
McKinley Wednesday and to nominate
tho candidato for vico president Thurs
day But the national Republican com
initteo had mado a compact with the
local Philadelphia committeo to keep
the convention hero for three days and
it was feared that if tho nomination for
president was mado tho convention
might take tho bit in its teeth and wind
np tho proceedings before dark Know
ing the temper of the delegates and tho
crowdfl Mr Hanna decided to take no
risks And consequently tho immense
thron gs which blackened the vast amph
itheater were compelled to content
themselves with tho routine incidents
connected with tho permanent organi
zation an oration by Senator Lodge the
permanent chairman and tho scene
which attended the unanimous adoption
of tho platform Then they returned to
the city to wait another 21 hours for tho
nominations which they havo traveled
some hundreds some thousands of
miles to witness It wus a great disap
pointment to most of them
Convention Mnvea Smoothly
Tho machinery of the convention
moved t o Miioothly that there was no
opportunity to let off steam There
was not tho slightest jar The hand of
Hanna was at the helm Ho is an ex
perienced and an accomplished engi
neer At one point when tho conven
tion scraped on a sandbar over a propo
sition advanced by ex Senator Quay o
cut down the representation of tho
southern states in futuro conventions to
a basis of votes polled for tho Repub
lican candidate tho lever was reversed
and the convention promptly backed off
thus avoiding tho threatened shoal by
postponing a decision upon the subject
The southern delegates without regard
to color are very much incensed over
what they regard as a blow at their
power in national conventions and the
growl they omitted indicates that they
propose to fight in their effort to avert it
Again Governor Roosevelt earned off
the honors His entrance was again
the signal for the most pronounced
demonstration of the session It was
as dramatic as that of Tuesday and
was practically a repetition of his ex
perience then He still wore his rough
rider hat Sorao of his austerity bad
departed With the relaxation of Mr
Hannas opposition the governor real
ized that ho must succumb to the in
evitable and he appeared resigned to his
Tho most striking incident of the day
was tho appearance on tho stage of IS
of tho survivors of the original conven
tion held in Loonst street in this city in
Lodge Takes the Oavel
Senator Lodge young brilliant al
ready famous as a scholar statesman and
historian mado a fine figure as he de
livered his address as permanent chair
man His finely poised bead close
cropped iron gray beard delicately
chiseled features and slender athletio
frame were clearly outlined as ho faced
the convention His speech was tho
scholarly clear cut effort expected of
him but it covered the same general
ground Senator Wolcott went over
Tuesday and though somo of tho fine
periods elicited applauEC as a whole it
did not stir up any great enthusiasm
Neither did tho reading of the platform
a very strong document by Senator
Fairbanks and for the samo reason
Both in different forms were epitomes
of the record of tho administration upon
which the party will ask tho country to
return it to power a record eloquently
placed before tho convention Tuesday

Republican chief magistrate anil a Ne

isfied When the people then assembled
at the polls after a term of Democratic
legislation and administration business
was dead Industry parolyml and the na
tional credit disastrously Impaired
The countrys capital was hidden away
and its labor distressed and unemployed
The Democrats had no other plan with
which to improve tho ruinous condition
which they themselves produced than to
coin silver at the ratio of 111 to 1 Tho Ho
publlran party denouncing this plan as
sure to proilueo conditions even worse
than those from which relief was soiiKht
promised to restore prosperity by means
of two legislative measures a protectee i
parity of the Democratic party to conduct
public affairs The prime essential of
business prosperity In public confidence In

ability to deal Intelligently with each new
ptoblem of ailmlulstratlun and leiflsla

We renew our allegiance to tho princi

the purity of all our money nnil tticsta

been secured We reeognlo that Inter

latUm may seem to have secured the coun
try against the peril of Imso and discred
ited i uireiiey the election of a Demo

the countrys credit and to bring once
more Into question the Intention of the
American people to maintain upon tho
gold standard the parity of their money
eltculation 1 he Democrat lo party must
bo coin Inced that tho American people
Vill neer toletato the Chicago platlorm

more general and more abundant than
we have ever known has followed theso
enactments There is no longer contro

obligation Every American dollar Is a
gold dollar or its assured equivalent and
American credit stands higher than that
of any nation Capital is fully employed
and everywhere labor is profitably occu
No single fact am moro strikingly tell
the story of what Republican government
mains to the country than this that while
during the whole period of 107 years from
1790 to lb7 there was an excess of exports
over imports of only JJ8a02847 there has
been in tho short threoyears of the present
Republican administration an excess of
exports over imports in the enormous sum
ofl4ba7380UI and while tho American
people sustained by this Republican leg
islation have been achieving these hjllen

concluded a war for liberty and human
rights No thought of national aggran
dizement tarnished tho high purpose with
which American standards were unfurled
It was a war unsought and patiently re
sisted but when it ramo the American
government was ready Its fleets were
cleared for action Its armies were In the
field and tho quick and signal triumph
of its forces on land and sea bore equal
tribute to tho courage of American sol
