necessary two-thlrds to nominate.
Mr, Palmer has been active in the
progressive camp and has voted through
out, for Governor Wilson.
Vlrat Notable Break.
The twenty-eighth ballot on president
brought the, first notable break, the thirty
votes heretofore solid for Governor Mar
shall being lost, twenty-nine for Wilson
. and one for Kern.
Wilson's total was thus swelled to 4371.
Making him a close second to Clark, who
still clung to his lead with 468.
The democratic national convention re
sumed balloting at 11 o'clock today with
a vast throng In attendance, intense ex
citement prevailing in the outcome of the
The twenty-seventh ballot for president
showed little change from the, last vote
Saturday night. The Clark and Wilson
forces remained intact, the changes being
few. and not decisive.
Another sensation was added during the
ballot when John B. Stanchfield, speak
ing for New York, denounced W. J
Bryan as a "money-hunting, favor-seeking,'
publicity-hunting marplot from Nn
braska."; 1 ' r' - -' ' ' ' "
New York's vote was polled, showing
Clark "S," Wilson 9, Underwood 2 and ab
sent 1, but the solid vote of ninety was
cast under the unit rule for Clark.
Hall Fill Early.
Crowds began to besiege the entrances
of the democratic convention hall by 9
o'clock and by 10 the galleries were half
filled and a sprinkling of delegates had
taken their place on the floor.
A cool breeze through the. high tran
soms kept the banners fluttering and
promised relief from the exhausting heat
of previous sessions.
The prevailing sentiment from the floor
before the call to order was that noth
ing had thus far been accomplished to
bring , the deadlock to a close, and that
if anything, the lines were quite as
tight, or tighter, than before, although
all recognized that the convention had
been replete with so many sensations that
a break or a coup might come at any
Among the early arrivals there was a
disposition to view Mr. Bryan's move
against New York as the adroit adoption
of the tactics of the Whitney-Don Dick
inson element aligning the" democratic
national convention against Chief
Crocker and the New York support of
David B. Hill. At that time Tammany
had its orator in the person of Bourke
Cockran who ' held the convention
throughout the night, until at daybreak
the various elements from outside New
- York state gradually forced the nomin
ation of Cleveland.
The contest then as now, wai against
New York, although the issue of "the
interests" had not been injected, and the
combined outside elements had the ad
vantage of Cleveland's prestige.
Illinois Stands Br Clark.
The Illinois delegation of fifty-eight,
headed by Roger C. Sullivan, reached
the hall late, having been in formal cau
cus since 10 o'clock. Illinois stood unani
mously and firmly, for Clark throughout
the twenty-six ballots. -. . . ;
Following the seventh ballot there had
been continual rumors of a break in
Illinois, and today this Was revived when
the delegation "passed" when first called
on the twenty-seventh.,
"We are prepared to stav until snow
flies," said ex-Congressman Late. Pence,
a champion of Clark, from the District of
Columbia. "We may not have enough
delegates to nominate now, but we Uave
enough to prevent the nomination of any
one else. Whatever happens we can
hold more than 365 necessary to prevent a
nomination and, - after the treatment
awarded Mr. Clark in refusing him the
honor after he had received tho majority,
we will fight to the end."
There was no band today, the contract
having expired, and the band stand was
occupied by a group of Baltimore lelles.
A few minutes after U o'clock Cnalrman
James called the convention to order and
' Rev. Carroll CoU of the First Motnodist
church of Baltimore offered prayer. ,
Cheers for Bryan.
A cheer swept the conventloa hall as
William J. Bryan strode up the aisle and
took his seat with the Nebraska delega
tion. He was smiling and held a conver
sation with several delegates. Chairman
James quieted the crowd. Theodore Cell
of California was then recognised. He
made a motion that a committee be ap
pointed to secure the validation of return
trip railroad tickets held by delegates.
' The motion was accepted and the cum-n-iiteo

Illinois asked to be passed on this bal

gained five votes and the Wilson sup
porters cheered. , .
When Missouri was called the entire
delegation arose and yelled defiantly:
"Thirty-six votes for Clark."
In Nebraska Clark gained a vote.
Tote of ew York Polled.
When New York was called a poll of
the delegation, the first since to voting
began, was demanded:
Abram I. Elklns of the Eleventh New
York district was the first New Yorker
to vote for Wilson and a round of
cheers greeted him. William J. McAdoo
was the second. When the name of
John B. Stanchfield was reached he took
the platform to explain his vote.
"I come from a state whose electoral
vote is vital to democratic success," be
gan Stanchfield. "We represent 10,000,000
Stanchfield then started to recite the
history of New York.
"Is there any limit on ths sar.ilaman'E
time," demanded a Michigan delegate.
. "New York has a right to be heard on
the floor of this convention," replied
Stanchfield. "The integrity of every
delegate from New York has been in
sulted." Mr. Stanchfield said the New
York delegation included lawyers and
business men of known .standing.
"It is by common consent the most
representative delegation that ever came
to a national ocnventlon from New York.
If these be the 'puppets of wax' that
Mr. Bryan refers to, we say to that
money-grabbing, office-seeking, publicity
hunting marplot of Nebraska"
"No man can go, forth from this con
vention stigmatized and branded with
the mark of Bryanlsm upon him and
come wtthln 500,000 votes of success.
Stanchfield could not conclude the sen
tence. It was drowned in a burst of
cheers. When" the speaker delivered this
speech Mr. Bryan occasionally smiled.
Bryan a Plutocrat.
"When Mr. Bryan makes the state
ment that these delegates from New
York are under the Influence of Morgan
and Ryan and ' Belmont, the 'plutocrats'
of this convention, he omits one name.
Outside of the three he has named, the
rlchesf and. most powerful plutocrat on
the floor is the gentleman from Ne

prevented from participating, then any

"Colonel Bryan never intended to sup
port the candidate of this conventloa
unless that candidate was Mr. Bryan
himself," said. Stanchfield. "We have

there; working all the time in his own
selfish Interest to produce a deadlock in
In conclusion Stanchfield threw the
convention into disorder with the declara
tion: I cast my vote ' for Woodrow
As the poll proceeded it became appar
ent 'that Clark would again get New
York's ninety votes under the unit rule.
It was generally believed that the vote
ha,d been challenged and ' the poll de
manded for the sole purpose of enabling
Stanchfield to deliver his attack on
Bryan. ' .
Of the four deiegates-at-large, " John
A. Dlx, Alton B. , Parker and Charles F.
Murphy voted for Clark. Senator' O'Gor
man voted for Wilson. The district dele-,
gates who voted for Wilson were, Arra
ham I. Elkus, William G. McAdoo, New
York city; John B., Stanchfield, Thomas
Conway, Plattsburg; Thomas W.
Meachem, Syracuse;' Benedict Brooks,
Pearl Creek, and Walter H. Edson, Fal
coner. William Temple Emmis and Joseph
A. Kellog, Great Falls, voted for Under
wood., .;- . l
Under the unit rule New York's ninety
votes went to Clark. Illinois, which had
been passed in the - roll call, cast' its
votes for Clark. ' '
The Illinois delegates filed Into their
seats while the poll of the New York
delegation was in progress. Their caucus
ended in a determination to stand by
Clark, for whom fifty-eight votes had
been cast since the beginning of the bal
loting. The result of the twenty-seventh bal
lot was: Clark, 669; Wilson, 406; Un
derwood, 112; Fobs, 38; Marshall, 30; Har
mon. 38; Bryan, 1. Absent 1.
This gave Clark a gain of 6; Wilson
a loss of 1 and Underwood a loss of , as
compared with the twenty-sixth ballot.

tickets, making them good until July 10.
"Nineteen twelve or 1913," demanded a
delegate, but there was no reply forth
coming. .,......''.: ,i
The twenty-ninth ballot was ordered
called. , ;
Indiana on. the twenty-ninth vote gave
Kern 4; Wilson 26. Thus Wilson lost 3.
A . dispute in , the Iowa delegation
showed : that that state stood: Clark,
14; Wilson, 11. but under the unit
rule the entire vote cf the state went to
Wrangle Over Kansas.
Another wrangle followed when Kan
sas was called. The chairman of the dele
gation asked that the state be passed.
Half a dozen delegates yelled: "We want
to vote now; two-thirds of this delega
tion is for Wilson and we want the vote
;ast that way."
The delegation was ordered polled. A
chorus of yells and Jeers greeted the be
ginning of the poll and the roll of the
delegation proceeded in great disorder.
- The vote was Wilson 16; Clark 6, ab
sent 1. and the vote of Kansas, 20 In
ill went over into the Wilson column.
When James ruled that the vote should
jo to Wilson, Theodore A. Bell took the
floor sfter a disorderly dispute, to argue
against casting the vote of Kansas for
Kansas'Gtves Wilson Twenty.
The de;egates were impatient and Bell
was frequently. Interrupted. He argued
that the Kansas . delegation could not
shift to Wilson until two-thirds of the
delegation voted for Wilson. He asserted
that thirteen was not two-thirds and con
tended the twenty votes should go to
Bell had trouble getting a hearing and
his argument was punctured by Jeers.
"Sing it" shouted a delegate as he
neared the conclusion.
A. Mtchell Palmer, Pennsylvana, the
Wilson leader, answered Bell. He said
that with only nineteen delegates on the
floor, thirteen constituted two-thirds of
the delegation and their votes should
control the state's votes.
Ben Gaitzel, of the Wilson men In the
Kansas delegation, asserted that fourteen
of the delegates from that state had
voted yesterday to desert Clark.
Chairman James ruled that "two-thirds
of the delegation" meant "two-thirds of
the delegates present" and gave the
twenty votes to Wilson.
Marshal lis Eliminated.
John B. Knox of Alabama, Introduced
a resolution deploring the bitterness of
the convention and calling for a united
front in order to facilitate the work of
the convention. . It was referred to the
resolutions committee without reading.
The twenty-seventh roll call went as
far as Indiana before any material shift
was made. Then the convention went
wild as Senator Shively announced,
"Kern, 1; Wilson, 29."
When quiet was restored, a poll was
demanded, but the demand was later
withdrawn. The Indiana vote had gone
solid for Marshall.
After conferring with a number of
friends Mr. Bryon said it was unlikely
that he would reply to the speech of Mr.
Stanchfield. It was reported that Sen
ator Rayner of Maryland might seek op
portunity to defend the "progressives."'
The .New Mexico delegation demanded
a poll after the' vote had. been reported
"eight for Clark." The roll call showed
Clark, 6; Wilson, 3, and under the unit
rule the eight went to Clark.
Oklahoma's delegation was polled, but
the vote remained: Clark, 10; Wilson, 10
Pennsylvania added one to its usual voto
of 71 for Wilson.
The result of the twenty-eighth ballot
was: Clark, 468; Wilson, 437; Under
wood, 112; Harmon, 29; Foss, 38; Kern
I; Bryan, 1; absent, . . v
Marshall was eliminated, twenty-nine
of . his thirty votes in Indiana going to
Wilson, who gained thirty-one on the bal
lot Clark lost 1. ' j
Wilson In the Lead.
The result of the twenty-ninth ballot
showed changes in the vote of only three
states. ' It was:
Clark, 4S8; Wilson, 4S6; Underwood.
112; Foss, 38; Harmon, 29; Kern, 4. This
gave Clark a loss of a vote, Wilson a
loss of 1. Bryan lost - his single vots
and Kern gained 3.
The thirtieth ballot proceeded monoto
nously until Ohio was reached. Then t-ni
of Harmon's twenty-nine went to Under
wood. Wilson's nineteen remained intact.
Vermont gave up Foss on this ballo
and Its eight votes went to Wilson. The
result of the ballot put Wilson in tho
The vote of Iowa, which had not been
passed, gave Wilson 14, Clark 12. Up to
that time the entire vote of twenty-six
had gone to Clark. When the vote was
announced a roll call of the delegates was
demanded and again showed Clark 12,
Wilson 14. Iowa's vote as announced
gave Wilson 460 votes. It gave Clark 453.
Cheers greeted "each Wilson vote as it

was announced during the roll call. The
result of the ballot was:
Clark, 455.; Wilson, 460; Underwood, 121;
Foss, 30; Harmon, 19; Kern, 2. Clark
lost 13 and Wilson gained 24. Under
wood gained 9. ,
When the total vote of the thirtieth bal
lot was announced, the Wilson followers,
with their candidate for the first time in
the lead, made a demonstration.
The thirty-first ballot gave Wilson
trifling gains early In the roll.
Clark Start Trouble.
The thirty-third ballot found the lead
ers practically at a standstill. Wilson
merely holding hlstotal of the thirty-second
ballot, while In Virginia Clark gained
one from Underwood.
At the end of this ballot the Champ
Clark people revived their drooping
spirits by displaying a big banner on
which the following tribute to Clark
from W. J. Bryan in 1910 was printed in
"I have known" Champ Clark eighteen
rears. He is absolutely incorruptible
and his life above reproach. Never in
all. these years have I known him to be
on but one side of the question, and
that was the side that represented the
There was a cheer as the Missourlans
displayed the banner above the delega
tion. It continued for several minutes,
"Take it over to Nebraska and show It
to Bryan," shouted some one. No
sooner was this said that the Missourlans
acted on the suggestion. Then came
trouble. . ,. ' '. .'.' ." " ;
Bryan arose and faced his tormentors
for a moment. , Several policemen huri
ried to his side and with ' them was an
eRcort. The Nebraskan fairly fought his
way to the stage.
"Is the Missouri delegation responsible
for sending that banner to the Nebraska
delegation?" he asked.
In the uproar which followed Bryan
stood smiling in the center a a shrinking,
excited mob of the Missouri delegates.
Half a dozen policemen charged Into the
"Anything against Bryan," shouted a
Missouri delegate, shaking his fist at
the smiling Nebraskan. From the aisle
the policeman asked the Nebraskan up
onto the platform. Half a dozen hand-to-hand
fights followed as the Clark men
tiled to carry "their, banner up on tho
platform behind Bryan. A score of police
men fought in vain to quiet the shriek
ing, fighting mob.
Chairman James hurried in and took
the gavel from John E. Lamb of Indiana.
After five minutes of effort James,
aided by the police secured some semb
lance of order.
The convention was in a turmoil long
after Mr. Bryan had taken his seat.
There were several fisticuffs among dele
gates and the big ofrce of policemen had
their hands full quelling the outbreaks,
but a new squad of police came in during
the disturbance and when the balloting
was renewed every aisle on the floor was
lined with bluecoats.
Chairman James directed the police to
arrest anyone attempting to carry a
banner of any sort into the armory.
Mr. James finally announced the begin
ning of the thirty-fourth ballot and Ala
bama had cast its votes when Bryan,
who had Btood for several moments with
the stolldnes8 of an Indian, was recog
nized. "Go on and vote,", called a dele
gate. "Stop him; we want to go home
we dont want a speech, .He's paid to
stay here; we're not."
Chairman James explained that Mr.
Bryan had risen to, a question of per
Mr. Bryan then said: "I was seated in
my delegation when a banner was placed
In frontof us. I asked those in charge of
it to remove it. They refused. I . went
to the Missouri delegation and asked the
chairman whether it had been sent there
by the Missouri delegation. If that act
was unauthorized by the persons in
charge of that banner I have nothing to
say. But if tha twas done by the orders
of the Missouri delegation I claim the
right to answer the question thus pro
pounded." , ,
A howl Interrupted him.
"The' chair regrets to rule that the
gentleman from Nebraska has not stated
a question of personal privilege."
A cheer greeted this and Mr. Bryan
bowed and left the stand. As he passed
the Missouri delegation former Governor
A. M. Dockery stopped him and dis
claimed for the delegation any connec
tion with the appearance of the banner.
Mr. Bryan went back to his seat.
When Maine was reached on the thirty
fourth ballot Its vote of 12 was cast solid
for Wilson. This toow two from Uunder
wood and one from Clark.
Thirty-fourth ballot: Clark, 447; Wil
