BALTIMORE. June 29. With Gov
ernor Wilson saining' on each ballot
and Speaker Clark constantly losing
ground In the race for the Presidential
nomination, the Democratic National
convention at 11:05 o'clock tonight ad
journed until Monday morning at 11
Twenty-six ballots had been taken
since the first call of the states and
there' was no hope of a final verdict
tonight. It Is against all political
precedent for. a National convention to
sit on Sunday, but tomorrow- will be a
day of Important conferences among
the party leaders and 'a day of hard
work for the campaign managers.
Clark Harries to Baltimore.
When the convention adjourned to
night. Speaker Clark was hurrying to
Baltimore from Washington In re
sponse to an urgent call fr6m his cam
paign director. William Jennings
Bryan, at the afternoon session, had
attacked Clark and had said he would
vote for no man willing to accept the
nomination at the hands of "Murphy,
of Tammany Hall."
'" It was the plan of Mr. Clark to ap
pear before the convention and make
answer. In' this way his managers
hoped to bolster the falling vote.
The ballots today ran from the 13th
t the 2th. Wilson began at 356 and
ended at 407. a net gain during the
day of 51 votes. Speaker Clark began
at (54 and fell to 483 fc, a loss of
Wilson Gaining at Close.
The anti-Clark leaders in the con
vention called attention to the fact
that they almost exactly offset the 90
rotes given to Clark by the New York
Breaks to Governor Wilson were
coming from many different dele
gates as the balloting closed. His
managers believed that, once he. had
overtaken Speaker Clark, the switch
ing of delegates would become general.
The Clark forces plan to make a des
perate effort tomorrow to win back
some of the delegates lost today, and
In this work they probably will have
the personal direction of the Speaker
himself. The Wilson forces, in the
meantime, expect to fight, not only to
hold their gains of today, but to In
duce more to desert the other candl-.
Senator Stone, of Missouri, made a
motion to eliminate the candidate re
ceiving the least number of votes on
each successive rollcall after the 27th
, ballot, until only one the winner was
left In the race. There was a storm of
objection and the subject was pressed
Haraoa Deserted for Time.
The Harmon delegates from Ohio
threw tlielr support to Speaker Clark
on several ballots, but they did not ma
terially help him toward the necessary
two-thirds vote, because of the gradual
Inroads made by Wilson. They then
changed back to Harmon and remained
there until the last ballot of the night.

The Washington delegation, seething

effort to break "f rom" Clark "and, when
that failed, decided to continue voting
for Clark- tonight but with a deter
mination to bring about another order

ex-Senator Heitfeld risen to protest
against being voted by his col
leagues.'' Heitfeld insisted that as
long as Idaho was going to
disregard instructions, he reserved the
right to do his own voting and insist
ed his half vote be recorded for Clark.
This was done, the others of the dele
gation acquiescing. A majority of the
Idaho delegation wants to vote as they
did soon after their first break for
Bryan but If they cannot have Bryan,
they will support some candidate ac
ceptable to Bryan. In this their atti
tude Is like that of two-thirds 'of the
delegates from Washington.
Washington Held by Unit Role. -
The Washington delegation up to and
including the 26th -rollcall stood solid
for Clark, notwithstanding the fact
that two-thirds of the delegates would
welcome the nomination of Bryan, and
would even prefer Wilson to Clark. On
the 21st rollcall an effort was made
to swing Washington's 14 votes out of
the Clark column and only the adop
tion of the unit rule, when the delega
tion organized, prevented a break.
Turner Holds Delegation. .
That the attempt to swing away from
Clark failed Is rather remarkable in view
of the personal Inclinations of most of
the delegates and the fact that the dele
gation did not desert Clark Is due "very
largely to the work or ex-Senator
Turner, who Is really loyal to Clark
