TWO FAMOUS CONVENTIONS
Republican Leaders at Minneapolis
and Democrats at Chicago in 1892.
political history in making
Cleveland' Third lampaiau and Kei'-
ond Election to the I'rnldrnrr
Start ol l'eoplr'ii Part
at Omaha. ' -,
Tlif tenth republican national convention
was called to order In the Industrial K
posltlou buildlntt at Minneapolis", Minn.,
June 7. 1892, by James S. Olarkson, chair
man of'.tha republican natlonul cunimtttee.
Three days before Jamea UllleMpta llaine,
Kecretary of state under President Har
rison, recognized candidate for the nomina
tion, had In a curtly worded note which
liermltted no answer save that of accept
ance without regrets, resigned from his
high office. The resignation on the eve
of the convention's meeting was the start
ling and dramatic Incident of the ante
conventlon period. It was at once Inter
preted by both friends and foes as an an
nouncement that the man whose name had
been presented to four republican conven
tions was again a candidate for the repub
lican presidential nomination.
The friends of President Harrison de
nounced the action as treasonable, de
claring that If Blaine still cherished such
ambitions he should have retired earlier
from the cabinet. Blaine's friends defended
his course and when the delegates gathered
in Minneapolis the opposition to Harrison
had, despite the tardiness of the resigna
tion, assumed such strength that Ulalne
supporters gained control of the preliminary
organliatlon and J. Sloat Fassett of New
Tork, an opponent of Harrison, was named
it temporary chairman.
Very early In the course of the proceed
ings the charge was made that the con
vention waa packed with Harrison office
holders. It was openly asserted that out
of 460 Harrison delegates. 132 were com
missioned officeholders, and that as many
of these were from the south, they repre
sented no republican constituency. That
the charge was not groundless was shown
in the fact that of eighteen delegates from
South Carolina, eleven were officeholders
and that Georgia sent twenty-two office
holders In its delegation of thirty-five.
Harrison had ullenated many of the
strong men of his party, among them Sen
ators Piatt, Quay, Stockbridge and
Hansbrough. Others opposing him were
Chairman Clarkson, Warner Miller of New
York. Payne of Wisconsin. Fassett of New
ork. Conger of Ohio, Scott of West Vir
ginia, Senator Wolcott of Colorado,
Chauneey I. Filly of Missouri and Knight
Ills supporters-and as events proved, he
had enough to win the nomination were
led by John t New of Indiana, who was
called horns from his duties as consul at
London to take charge of his chiefs cam
pslgn. Test of lrah.
Ths first real test vots between the Har
rison and Blatue men came on tbe third
day of the convention. William McKinley.
Jr., of Ohio, who had been mentioned as a
possible dark horse should the fight be
tween the two leading candidates develop
a deadlock, had been selected as permanent
chairman. The committee on credentials
presented a majority anj a minority report.
The delegates about whose title the com
mittee was divided were four at large from
Alabama. The delegates whose seating
was recommended by the majority report
were classed as Harrison men, while the
minority report was In favor of four known
to favor Blaine. The majority report was
supported by Chauneey Uepew of New
York, Massey of Delaware. Powell Clayton
of Arkansas, ltethea of Illinois. Hart of
West Virginia and others. Th minority
report wan supported by Senator JVolcott
of Colorado, Fllley of Missouri, Knight of
California. Puffleld of Michigan and
Warner Miller of New York.
The majorl'y or Harrison report was cur
ried. Demonstration that Foiled. .
On the fourth day, Friday, June 10, Sen
ator Wolcott, in an eloquent speech placed
James U. Hlalne of Maine in nomination,
A spectacular demonstration which lasted
almost half an hour followed. It was led
by a young and pretty woman, Mrs. Car
son Lake, who at first held In her hands
a light colored parasol, which she furled
and unfurled. As though it were a baton,
she controlled the great waves of sound
by Its movements. Later she was given a
flag, which she waved. The galleries joined
In the tumult of enthusiasm, but the dele
gates, most of them pledged to a candidate,
remained largely unmoved. The demons. ra
tion was recognised as a farewell to the
unrewarded statesman rather than an ova
tion to the possible victor.
Blaine's nomination was seconded by W.
H. Kustls of Minnesota. W. K. Molllson of
Mississippi, Warner Miller of New York.
U. B. Boyd of Tennessee and S. W. Donney
H V. Thompson of Indiana presented the
name of President Harrison. This nomina
tion was seconded by Chauneey Pepew of
New York. 11. H. Cheatam of North Caro
lina, John S. Spooner and Bruno Fink of
On the first ballot. Benjamin Harrison
of Indiana was nominated for a second
term, receiving 635 and one-sixth votes.
James Q. Blaine of Maine received 1S2 and
five-sixths vole; William McKlnley, Jr.,
of Ohio. 182; Thomas B. Reed of Maine, 4.
and Kobert T. Lincoln of Illinois, 1.

What the Itallott Showed.
It was most midnight und an equinoctial
storm wns raging when the delegates be

then made which gave Adlal E. Stevenson
the required two-thirds.
Strnuitle Over Tariff.
The only thing approaching a struggle
In this democratic convention was the
discussion over the tariff plank. The one
prepared by the committee on resolutions
was amended and the amendment was
i finally adopted. H denounced republican
protection and pointed to wage reductions
and prevailing strikes in the Iron trade as
the best evidence that the McKlnley tariff
law had not brought prospt-rlty.
The Force bill, aiming at federal control
of southern elections, carne In for Its share
of denunciation, as did sham rtciproclty,

and Force bill supplied the ac tual strength.
Other Conventions. -
The national people's party held Its first
convention In Omaha, Neb., from July 2
to July 5. The new party declared Itself
In favor of the free coinage c' silver, an
Income tax and the government ownership
of railroads und telegraph and telephone
lilies. James li. Wciver of Iowa wa-s nom
inated for the" presidency; James O. Field
of Virginia for the vice presidency. C. H.
Elllnton of Georgia served as , temporary
chairman, II. L. Loucks of South Dakota
us permanent chairman.
The socialist-labor conventlun met in
New York City, August 2S, and nominated
Simon Wing of Massachusetts for presi
dent and Charles H. Matchett of New
York for vice president. It declared
for an entire change in the system.
World's Columbian exposition was rec
ognized in a resolution stating that con
gress should enact reasonable legislation
for Its aid. Temperance, morality, the
veterans and Harrison's administration
were also given some kind words.
The convention adjourned June 19, having
been In session four days.
Democrats at the Wlaxwaiii.
The movement for the nomination of
Grover Cleveland as the standard hearer
of tho democratic party began almost as
soon as President Harrison succeeded him,
March 4, I(-S9. During the four years of
Harrison's administration, Cleveland lived
in New York City. Kvery public address
which he made was closely scrutinized and
the sentiment in his favor strengthened
with the passage of the months.. When the
convention years of 1SH2 dawned, in almost
every state of the union there was a
strong feeling among democrats ut larxc
that he was the national candidate. When,
therefore, the New York state machine,
controlled by Tammany, with Croker at
Its head, so manipulated the state conven
tion, held at Albany, February 22, 1W2, that
the delegation to the national convention
was Instructed for Dav.d II. H 11, ureal
was the Indignation. The convention was
denounced as a snap convention and the
anti-snap movement, having for its pur
pose tho lustration of the scheme of the
New York machine politicians, waxed
strong and vigorous.
guite early In the spring ot 192 .William
C. Whitney of New York took charge of
the organization work for the Cleveland
nomination, and by the time the demo
cratic natlonul convention assembled In
Chicago the result of the convention was
The convention waa called to order June
21 and adjourned June 23, but a sho.ter
time would have sufficed bad not the city
been assared of a sess.on of at least tines
days. It was the year preceding that ot the
World's Columbian exposition. For the
meetings of the convention a laige building
on the lake front, called the Wigwam, had
been especially constructed. As first
planned, this waa to be covered with a
canvas roof, but the months of June and
July wera months of storms and after one
roof of canvas hail been destroyed a cov
ering of wood was substituted. This change
and another Increasing the vesting capa
city occasioned some fear as to the safety
of the building. These fears proved
groundless, though the elements were un-
friendly and several of the sessions were
held during violent storms, which made .
hearing difficult and necessitated the use
of open umbrellas in the convention hall.
Though the New York delegation sup
porting Hill waa beaten before the con
vention assembled, as Cleveland com
manded more than the necessary two
thirds on the first ballot, It made a brave
showing. One of the most eloquent speeches
of Bourke Cockran was that second. ng
the nomination of IIII and opposing that
of Cleveland, which was delivered after
midnight just before the' ballot for presi
dential candidate was tuken.
William C Owens of Kentucky was
temporary chairman, William L. Wilson
of West Virginia, permanent chairman.
As the New York delegation was pledged
to Hill, Governor Leon Abbett of New
Jersey presented tho name of Grover Cleve
land of New York. Speeches seconding his
nomination were made by Oeorg-o F. Pat
terson of Cullfornia, A. W. Green of Il
linois, W. K. English of Indiana, Fenton of
Kansas, J. A. McKenzle of Kentuckv,
Patrick A. Collins of Massachusetts, W,
H. Wallace of Missouri, Hensel of Penn

cluded federal and municipal control of
public utilities and public lands.
Tho prohibition convention met In Cin
cinnati June 1, with John P. St. John of
Kansas as temporary chairman, and L'li
Kltter of Indiana as permanent chairman.
John Bldwell of California was nominated
for president. Other candidates voted for
