- The forty-sixth ballot had been ordered
when Senator Bankhead of Alabama was
seen making his way to the stage. Word
flashed over the great armory that his
purpose was to withdraw Mr. Underwood
from the race, and release his delegates
to vote for whom they saw fit. The dele
gates, wearied by the long sessions of the
last week, realised all at once that this
was Indeed the climax. There was a con
fusion of cheering, applause and calls
from one delegation to another. .The gal

The Last Session.
Despite tha fact that the main business
of the connection, the nomination of a
presidential candidate, had been disposed
of, floor and galleries were filled tonight
for the final session of the democratic
national convention. The nomination of
a vice presidential candidate and the
adoption of the. platform framed by the
subcommittee of the resolutions commit
tee, of which William J. Bryan is chair
man, were the duties remaining to be
performed by the convention which had
been in session since last Tuesday. But
a resolution framed by Bryan to allow
the candidate to name his own campaign
committee promised trouble.
The delegates, tired of the dull routine
of four days of balloting for a presi
dential candidate, were on hand early,
anxious to dispose of the work that was
still to be done. The choice of a vice
presidential candidate was the first prob
lem confronting the convention today.
The . delegates were tired. When the
hour for the convening of the session
arrived several delegations had not taken
their places. All the aggressiveness that
marked the previous sessions was gone
and the delegates wars In a mood to
finish things with a rush.
As the convention met, vice presidential
gossip was given an impetus by the cir
culation of a report that Champ Clark
would be willing to accept second place
on the ticket.
Despite the crowd that filled the hall,
the police regulations were greatly re
laxed. On the floor there was almost as
many women as there were delegates.
Hound Dor- for Wilson.
The New Jersey delegates, enthusiastic
over their afternoon's victory, cheered
Wilson and Bryan imparttallywafter they
took thelr'ieats. They also sang parodies
on various popular songs for both Wilson
nd Clark. .In return, a Missouri delegate
from across the aisle yelled "The noun'
dawg is for Wilson now." " y,v-
Thereupon the New Jersey delegation
cheered. Wilson buttons were pinned on
tha lapels of the Missouri delegation and
there was a general love feast between
New Jersey and Missouri.
Tha Maryland delegation began to
sing "Maryland, My Maryland," and
those on the floor and lri the galleries
arose. A chorus of songs of every kind
followed and the convention seemed to
have entered upon a long delayed "era
of good feeling."
The "Clark for vice presidsnt", boom
grew stronger despite a statement by the
Clark managers that he would not ac
cept tha vice presidential nomination.

William X Bryan entered the hall while
political and patriotic ' songs were still
being sung and they were interrupted
by the cheers that greeted Bryan.
Bryan Against Marshall.
Bryan took his seat with the Ne
braska delegation and Immediately be
came the center of a group of delegates
anxious to congratulate him. It became
apparent as the Bryan advisers left 'his
side and mingled with the 'Wilson dele
gates on the floor that CKhrernor Mar
shall of Indiana would not have the
support of the Bryan-Wilson . rorces for
the vice, presidential nomination. Bryan
let it be known that he did not believe
Marshall would be a strong candidate.

For several minutes Dean continued
amid shouts of "Name your man." ,
When he finally placed Clark In nom

Dockery Declines for Clark.
Meantime the leaders were exerting
every effort to reach Clark by telephone.
After Dean concluded, former Governor
Dockery of Missouri hurried to the plat
form to decline the nomination for Clark.
, "The Hon. Champ Clark has decided
he cannot accept the office of vice presi

He had scaroely begun when there was
a general movement to leave the hall.
It was several minutes before the busi

kept busy clearing the aisles. When
order was restored Senator Kern resumed
the reading of the platform.
The reading of the report of the com

the vice presidency rested between Gov

Indiana. The states seconding the nomi
nations of the two' governors were about
equally divided. " "
When the District of Columbia was
reached, one of the delegates rose and
proposed William J. Bryan as a vice
presidential candidate. A roar swept the
hall as the name was mentioned.
Bryan, sitting quiet in his seat in the
Nebraska section was immediately sur
rounded by a group of supporters urging
him to speak. For a time he refused, sit
ting unmoved in the midst of the storm
of disorder. But the uproar Increased,
and finally Bryan climbed upon his
Robert E. Mattlngly was the delegate
from the District of Columbia who pro
posed the nomination of Mr. Bryan.
In doing so he said: ..
"Many prominent democrats have been
mentioned to this magnificent conven
tion, but the greatest of all has not been
named. We want victory with Wilson in
November next, and whoever we nomi
nate, I now predict that victory will be
ours; but to make assurance doubly sure,
let us nominate that great exponent of
democracy, William J. Bryan of Ne
braska. (Prolonged cheers.)
Colonel Bryan came to the platform
and In declining the nomination seconded
the nomination of Governor Burke of
North Dakota and Senator Chamberlain
of Oregon. His address follows:
"Mr. Chairman and members of the
Convention: Tou have been so generous
with me In the allowance of time that I
had not expected to transgress on your
patience again, hut the compliment that
has been paid me by the gentleman from
the District of Columbia justifies, I hope,

so on behalf ot my country. (Applause.)
