A chorus of hoots and Jeers greeted
this proposal and Representative Burle

seat with the Nebraska delegation and
hurried through the crowd to the front
of the platform, where he leaned with
a hand eupped over his ear to hear the
announcement of the chairman on the
unanimous consent proposition.

This was a loss of twenty-seven for
Clark, a gain of two and a half for Wil

Underwood. Harmon returned to the poll
with his twenty-nine votes In Ohio, which
deserted Clark. '
The twenty-elxth ballot was ordered at
3:85. When Missouri was called on the
twenty-sixth ballot the entire delegation
arose and shouted: '
"Thirty-six for Champ Clark."
When Maryland,' which had been passed,
was reached at the end of the roll call,
a poll of the delegation was demanded.
The chairman of the delegation announced
sixteen votes for Clark, but said two
members of the delegation wished to state
preferenee for another candidate. When
the roll was called the second delegate,
Joshua Mills, answering to his name,
shouted: v, '" .-
Immediately the convention was in an
uproar. Mills represented only half a
vote, but It was the signal for the Wilson
adherents for a demonstration.' It wss
the first indication of a long expected
break tn Maryland and the Wilson forces
made the most of It When t,he demon

"We want Wilson," but It did not last
long. The cheering, whistling and hooting

While the demonstration continued Will
lam J. Bryan sat unmoved with the Ne
braska delegation. He, fanned himself
with an air of satisfaction as ths dele
gates passed him.
While the excitement was at Its height
the Clark forces joined In. Half a dozen
Clark banners were carried Intd the hall.
They were greeted with a roar of cheers,
Jeers, hoots and hisses.
The uproar became pandemonium. The
Foss crowd added their quota to the din.
Tbe New Jersey and .the Missouri dele
gatea, seated directly across the center
aisle from each other Just before the plat
form, began a wordy quarrel. One of the
Missouri delegation, red of face and drlp

forced the big California Clark banner up
to the platform. . .i
A 'fight was narrowly averted -as the
officers of the convention forced It back
down the steps. A girl, Miss Gladys
Hogan of Baltimore, seized the California
banner and tried to lead the demonstra
tion, but without- much success. s After
the demonstration had lasted twenty-five
minutes the chairman ordered the police
to clear all banners from the hall and to
allow no women in the sections reserved
for delegatea Some semblance of order
finally was restored.
The poll of the Maryland delegation
was resumed. A cheer greeted the vote
of United States Senator Rayner, east
for Wilson. The poll was frequently
interrupted by disorder. It 'became so
difficult to keep the delegates and spec
tators quiet that extra policemen were
stationed tn all the aisles. The poll
showed: Wilson. Stt; Clark, 12; absent

A point- of order against the splitting
of the vote was overruled by Chairman

Immediately after the announcement

BERNIE M'NALLY'S DEATH
NOT DUE TO SUICIDE
SCHUYLER, Neb., June JO.-(Speclal)
The report sent to the newspapers
from Fremont that Bernle McN&Uy, whose
body was found in the road near North
Bend, had committed suicide is false.
Investigation made by Colfax county of

boy's death, was accidental.

Mr. Mahoka was Just unhitching his
team in the field to go to the house for

From a Staff Correspondent) '
LINCOLN. Neb., June 30.-(Speolal.)-
That the promoters of a third party
movement here are awaiting the result
of the, Baltimore convention Is evident
by remarks made by Don L. Love, dele
gate to the republican national conven
tionon his return to Lincoln yesterday.
Probably, the announcement of Paul
Clark, republican candidate for congress
in the First district that he would op
pose President Taft In the campaign was
the most Important political news here
during the last week. The announcement
of George W. Norris along' the same line
came later, while the letter of Governor
Aldrich 8unday morning that he was
for Roosevelt 'now, as he always 'had
been, means that those four will be the
leaders in a movement to get behind
Teddy if the res alt of the democratic
convention dos not suit them, accord
ing to the prevailing sentiment today
around the hotels.
As to the wisdom of such a move ther
Is a great difference of opinion. On
prominent republican said today - when
asked for an opinion: "I think It means
the defeat of the republican state ticket
or at least the defeat of those Who are
on the ticket who .will oppose the presi
dent for I have seen many Roosevelt
republicans who believe that more good
can be accomplished for the progressive
cause by a harmonious onslaught upon
the common political enemy by all re
publicans than can be accomplished' by
a factional fight-which can only end
one way,-and : that is the turning over
to the democrats of the state otflces.w "
While the more radical of the Roosevelt
republicans are advocating Teddyism, " a
change of sentiment seems to be taking
place in the minds of those hot so radical,
who are looking farther ahead than the
present campaign. One ..man very high
in the :etrcles of the party and who is
supposed to be a very strong Roosevelt
man. said yesterday, after reading one
of the early, bulletins from tbe democratio
