adoption Of a platform la concerned la
passing through the stages of organlxatlon
and the throee ot frenxied demonstration.
Today waa marked chiefly by turbulent
enthusiasm and the bitter strife of party
leader, tha essential developments of tha
day being these:
Two sessions of the convention were held,
tha first at noon, producing a Bryan dem
onstration breaking all records In duration,
tha second at I o'clock tonight, bringing
tha culmination of the struggle over tha
credentials of the Pennsylvania delegation
and the. supremacy ot . the Pennsylvania
loader. Colonel Guffey, who has been de
nounced by Mr- Bryan.
Outside of the conveptlon. tha commit
tees have proceeded with the serious work
of preparing tha way for convention act! .in.
Tha crtdentlals committee unseated eight
of Colonel Guffey anti-Bryan Pennsyl
vanla delegates, thus reversing the com
plexion of tha Pennsylvania delegation
from anti-Bryan to Bryan and precipitating
tha intense controversy which Is being
fought before tha night session of the con
vention. Tha platform is still In an incomplete
condition and will not be presented until
tomorrow, but its essential features are
agreed upon and little remains but the
detail of phraseology.
Gore Touch Oflf Eathnalaem.
The early meeting of tha convention today
was productive Of little practical progress,
as tha principal commltteea were not ready
to report. But It gave tha opportunity for
the explosion of long pent up Bryan en
thusiasm, which too tne signal irom oen
ator Oorej's eloquent reference to the Ne
braska leader, and burst into a whirlwind
of enthusiastic tribute lasting on hour and
nineteen minutes,' with seven minute, more
of th expiring echoea of clamor, eatabllsh
lng th convention record of one hour and
twenty-six minutes, or full thirty-nine
minutes In- exceaa of the Roosevelt demon
s. ration at Chicago, which held the record
until today. Jt waa a decisive exhibition
of th over mastering strength of the
Bryan column, and one of the most dra
Bnatto convention picture ever presented
as Uia standards of the state were torn
from their mooring and borne through th
hall, until they stood together on the plat
form like as army of banners, proclaiming
their united allegiance to Bryan. A mighty
torra of Bryan demonstration when the six
standards of New York. New Jersey. Dela
ware. Georgia, Minnesota and Connecticut
stood rooted In their places, the rallying
points. f . little . groups unmoved by the
frrnaled cnea about them. Throughout the
hour and nineteen minutes the deafening
roar continued, ebbing, and flowing in In
tensity, woman joining with th man in bear
ing the Bryan standards aloft, while the
whole assemblage of 11,000 people Joined in
the tumultuou demonstration. The early
session lasted three hour, and then, worn
out with exertion and nicking the inaiertsU
to proceed wUh business, tlie convention re
cessed until tonight..

Wlt the aaiutanc ' of another perfect
day and .th) promise, of ' an Interesting
fight . over th report of the com

Outfey and his Pennsylvania frienda were
generally expected to contest, the conven
tion crowd wis, however. Impeded by a
great parade of the Tammany men from
New Tork, who, headed by a band and a
number of guadlly attired Indiana, wound
their way around .the business section ot
the City. About l.OflO men were In .line,
among them I.eadar Charles F. Murphy and
other big men of Tammany. It was by far
the largest parade which has so far oc
Curted during th convention.
With Tammany out of the way. tha
crowd wa , abl once more to proceed
toward th convention hall, and by 11 JO,
a half hour previous to the time set for
the opening of the proceedlnga. all th
sidewalks er cl-.oJ. and the police were

laughter. The events of the night and

When Georgia arrived It became known
lhat th Georgia delegation was unable to
reach a conclusion lesard'ng the democratic
candidate for president whom they w 11 sup
port. Another caucus will be held tonight
to further conalder the question. As con
stituted the delegation stands twenty-three
against Bryan and three for him.
The teats of Pennsylvania were also
rparsely filled, Colonel Guffey and his fol
lowers being locked up at the Adams house
considering their beat lino ot action In th)
face of the adverse report which the com
mittee on credential waa preparing to
bring agalnat them.
Call for Labor Lewder.
Four times before the convention was
called to order, a gray haired reading clerk
with Stentor!an voice, demanded to kno
from the platform If Samuel Gompers,
John Mitchell or Mr. Duncan were In the
house. "They are requested to come for
ward," he said at first, but there waa no
Next time, the clerk announced that the
trio of labor leader were wanted by the
shouted time and time again, while the
hum ot voices continued.
"Gentlemen, be seated," called th chair
man. "Gentleman, pletce be seated." he
repeated, and at last, "the officers ot the
convention will see that gentlemen take
their seats and clear the aislea." while th
gavel continued Us pounding. Impromptu
conferences seemed to be In progress In all
parts of the delegates section and It was
some time before the participants headed
th frantic appeals of the chairman.
Chairman Bell, after pounding with his
gavel for ten minutes, delivered a short
address demanding that order prevail la
the convention, repeating for the fiftieth
time: "Gentlemen, take your seats."
While lie was speaking almost absolute
silence prevailed and his threat of "no
business will be transacted unlesa quiet is
restored," was made to the people who
were making no noise of any kind.
Prayer of Her, C. F. Relsner.
The chairman finished what he had to
say, howtver, and promptly seising his op
portunity. Introduced the Kev. Christian F.
Itelsner of Denver, the chaplain of the day,
who delivered the following Invocation:
Oh, Jehovah, God of Nations, Father of

Colonel Guffey walked down tb center

by, a group of friends, who apparently

D ir'ng all thf. time the delegates were
finding their seats the band kept up a
conuant stream of music. A wide variety
of selections were offered and whenever
the leader had a doubt he turned on a new
supply of "Dixie" and always got a re
sponding shout. "The Star-Ppangled Ban
ner" oft repeated shared honor with the
old southern song.
At 11:20 o'clock, when the convention had

" "The Milwaukee nd other marching clubs
will pass through the hall." announced the
chairman, and as the last words left his
Hps, the strains of "Dixie" floated Into
the auditorium and a cheer broke from
the crowd as the first Bryan banner In line

As the Inst of the parade passed out.
Chairman Bell again ordered that the aisles
be cleared, and when this was done the
"The chair recognizes Senator Thomas
F. Gr.tdy of New York, chairman Vf the
committee on rules."
Senator Qrndy, mounting the platform,
announced In a few words that he pre
sented the report and for the adoption of
which he moved. It provided that the
convention shnll re governed by the rules
of 'he democratic convention of 1904. The
report was adopted unanimously by a viva

Mr. Martin presented on behalf of the

and tribute to the late James K. Jones,
former chairman of the committee.
' After the resolution had been read, Mr.
Martin spoke briefly of Senator Jones'

A storm of laughter went through tha
convention hall when Chairman Bell said
with a smile, "John 8. Whelan, secretary
of the New York delegation, Is wanted at
the long distance telephone by Governor
Hughes of New York."
When the laughter had subsided, the
"This Is no laughing matter, this business
concerns the affairs of state and It Is an
Indication that democrats nre already be
ginning to get together."
"Tho Michigan delegation has lost l't
Bible," announced Chairman Bell, amid
outburst of laughter. "And they would
be very much gratified." he added, "If
It Is returned."
OlMe Jame's of Kentucky was recognized
to move that a recess be taken until t p. ni.
There were cries of "no" from all parts
of the hall, the galleries joining In the call
of many of the delegates.
When the motion waa put there were loud
and almost equal choruses first of "aye''
und then ot "no."
"The chair is In doubt," said Mr. Bell,
"but It Is his opinion that the delegates
vote aye and the galleries no. I will put
the motion again."
This time the galleries voted unanimously
and the shout of -"no" overwhelmed the

"Gentlemen,' said the chairman, bran

tielt'gates have voted n-jw to retain the
convention In Its seats tor a few moments
longer." A cheer of approval came down
from the galleries and Its feeble echo rose
Irom the convention floor. Great confusion
followed, hundreds ..ef voices calling for
various speaker, the name of Senator
"Bob" Taylor of Tennesree being shou'ed
repeatedly. The convention then settled
down to await the next event, but there wai
none lor some m nutes. Tho band attempted
to play, but waa practically: submerged In
the uproar. The chairman - kept up his
automatic sentence: "Gentlemen, come to
order," and kept It tp after tha convention
had quieted down.
"The chair will now recognize Mr.
Helfner of Washington," said Chairman
Bell, when a semblance of order had been
"I move that we hear a few remarks
from Senator Bob Taylor of Tenneasee,"
mingled cries of "Taylor," and "no, no,"
came from the floor. The chair appointed
Mr. Helfner as a committee of one to
escort Senator Taylor to the chair.
Senator Oore Called for.
Then there came cries of "Gore, Oore,"
begun by the constituents of the Okla
homa senator, and wa caught up all over
Mr. Bell pounded for order and announced
that Senator Taylor had left the halt.
'Gore, Gore," called the delegates.
'In a moment," shouted the chairman.
who before announced that the convention
would first hear from Charles A. Towne
and then from Senator Gore.
Mr. Towne waa nowhere to be found,
however, and the chanoe of hearing a
speech from one of the vice presidential
candidate wa lost.
'Wa will hear from Senator Gore,"
finally announced Mf. Bell, amid great
Ovation for Gore.
When the chairman announced that Sena
tor Oore ot Oklahoma would address the
convention, the delegate of the state went
Into a spasm of delight, they whooped and
yelled In delight, as the blind senator from
the newest state in the union was led to
the platform. Hla first utlerancr.i were
happy and he caught the convention Im
mediately. Loud cheers and applause
greeted hla declaration that Oklvhoma Is
the most democratic state in the union
The cheers were repeated Iat.T when

accepf-J the advice of Bryan."
First Bryan Demonstration.
The mention of the name Brought the
convention to ita feet In the first real
Bryan demonstration. Delegates from
nearly every state Jumped to their chair
and yelled. Members of the New York d.-l
egatlon joined In the cneerlng but a ma
Jorlty remained In their scuts. Minnesota
and Deleware were the conspicuous ex
ceptlons to the general celebration.
A Bryan banner, which had been lurking
In the rear of the hall, was rushed to the
stag and waved above the heads of the
chairman and speaker. The point of the
flagstsrt caught one of the suspended
eagles over th chairman's desk and
brought it crashing ta th floor. It wss
quickly caught up, however, and held above
Senator Gore's head. The band Joined In
the demonstration with lively music.
Martin Wave El.
8rgeaBSat-Arms Martin, after he had
thoroughly mussed the senator's hair with
the eagle's tall, waved the great stuffed
bird bo close to the siatore nose that he
must have started back bad h been M
to see what was going on two Inches from
The applause waa relaxing somewhat
when the band poured oil on the fire bv
atrlMng up "Dixie" and Instantly the
flame was burning fiercely, and brighter
than before. The young man with the
Bryan banner held his place on the
speaker's stand by the side of the senator,
waving the banner to and fro, careful,
however, to tear no more eagles from
Senator Oore. whj had caused th ter
rific outburst, waited for a time for the
noise to ccaso, and then quietly turned
and seated himself against the railing ot
the platform, waiting for th uproar to
Georgia's delegation, in the mldit of
the cheering, wa also conspicuous for
Ita absolute silence. When the demon
stration had proceeded for some fifteen
minutes a delegate from Iowa caught up
the standard of that state and led a
march to tho stage where ther was a
grouping of the states. It was a wild
rush to the platform In which there was
much confusion. Delegates other than
those currying the heavy standards
Joined In the surging crowd, Invading the
spaco act aside for working newspaper
men and seriously interfering with their
State Hot Participating;.
The only state standards that finally
were left In their places were Georgia.
New York, Delaware, Minnesota, Mary
land. Connecticut and New Jersey.
When the enthusiasm was at Its
height the group of state standards
around and upon the platform Included
Rhode Island, Porto Rico, Alaska, South
Dakota, West Virginia, Iowa, Oregon,
Kansas, Virginia, Montana, Texas, Penn
sylvania, Illinois, Oklahoma, Arkansas,
South Carolina, Washington, New Hamp
shire, North Dakota, Louisiana, North
Carolina, Florida, Wisconsin and Cali
fornia. After ten minutes of yelling the per
spiring, scrambling delegates, with their
ttate standards, left the platform and
started on a parade around the hall.
Back and forth In the aisle In front of
the press seats the excited, shouting
Bryan men carried their standards, but
the cheers were by this time beginning
to decrease In volume and a few of the
blue markers were returned to their
places on the floor of the hall.
California's Bryan banner, heavy with
gold tassels and fringe, was carried to
the stage, while the cheering continued
unabated and cries of "Whoop r up"
came from the delegates In the front
Maryland at last deserted from
"stay-at-homes" and its banner
taken into the midst of the parade.
-New York Men Barrounded.
Many of the standard bearers formed
a circle about the New York delegation
and cheered their lustiest.
A wildly enthusiastic delegate from Okla
homa clambered upon the press tables to
secure a vantage point from which to dis
play hla state standard. He was dragged
down by the newspapermen with scant cere
mony. He then attempted to go on tho
platform once more, but Sergeant-at-arms
Martin stopped him. He persisted, how
ever, and after some argument, was allowed
to carry his point. The states of Idaho.
Ohio and Massachusetts Joined him, while
the band played "Hall, Hall, the Gang's
The band then struck up "My Old Ken
tucky Home," while the delegates and Spec
tators joined In the chorus. The procession
then started to leave the stand, but a halt
was caused by a delegate who yelled so
loudly that his false teeth fell out. They
rolled under the press seats and down he
went on hands and knees to recover his
eating machinery, while the parade behind
him halted until he had recovered the teeth,
clapped them Into place end was ready to
yell again for his political faith.
Flashlight Add to Confusion.
In the midut of the riot of noise and the
confusion of marching delegates, the con
stand boom of flashlight explosions from
the photographers added to the pande
The standard-bearers finally ir.vaded the
galleries, Maine and Alabama leading the
tlon and tossing hats and handkerchiefs
s high aa their weary arms would allow,
yelling at the same time with all the
power of their torn and tired throats.
Th Last Yells.
Tho crowd finally gatheied In front of
the speakers' stand, and, packed Into a
compact mass, they burst forth anew In
cheers for Bryan, for themselves and for
each other. fat, bald headed man from
Ohio climbed upon a press table and. acting
aa cheermaster, called for yells from every"
delRht of another state that his eyes
could light upon.
The convention band finally got separated
In the surging crowd and ita members In
dulged their Individual tastes lit regaling
those about them with music.
From time to time the besrers of Ihe
stste standards would break away from the
aisles and make another rush lo th chair
man's desk. Senator Gore, with placid
countenance and unseeing eyes, stood un
perturbed, waiting for the tumult to end
before resuming the speech that had started
the demonstration. He chatted from time
to time with Chairman Bell, who stood
guard against the rush of the thoughtless.
A rallying point for the hand jwas estab
lished on the stage at last, and. the scat
tered musicians hurried there to Join In the
"Red, White and Blue."
The patriotic selection made way for still
another edition of "A Hot Time" when the
cowboy musicians had assembled In full
Blind Senator Await Silence.
During all this time, while onu of the
greatest outbursts of political enthusiasm
ever seen In any political gathering was
rising, dying, swelling up and ugain pass
ing away, the blind man who had called
It Into being sat Jammed against the edge
of th speaker's railing, seeing nothing of
the spectacle his Voice had created. He
was for the time forgotten, hut he rested
quietly on his totterlhg perch, secure In the
