Governor Marshall of Indiana
is Selected as His Running
Baltimore Woodrow Wilson, of
Now Jersey, Tuesday was nominated
for the presidency by the democratic
national convention on tho forty-sixth
ballot. Thovotowas: Clark, 84; Wll
eon, 090; Harmon, 12; absent, 2.
When tho convention assembled
Tuesday evening to comploto Its work
by nominating a candidate for vice
president and adopt a platform tho
sentiment of tho convention was
strongly In favor of giving tho speak
er tho vlco-prcsldency If ho would nc
cept. Speaker Clark, however, Bont
word from Washington, declining tho
nomination, stating that ho preferred
to remain In his present position.

It was apparent that tho real fight
for the vice-presidency rested between
Governor Burke and Governor Mar
shall, of Indiana. Tho states secqnd
Ing tho nominations of the two gov
ornors wore about equally divided,

A roar swept tho hall as the name
was mentioned. Bryan declined tho
honor and urged the selection of either

As the second ballot progressed
Marshall gained steadily. Many of
the so-called Wilson states shifted to
support him. The result of the ballot
was announced: Marshall. 645'.:
Burke, 387; Chamberlain, 12 V.
On the third ballot the North Dako

The convention witnessed many ex
citing incidents, and developed a dead
lock that was unequalled by any na
tional convention since tho republican
gathering at Chicago In 1880, when
General Grant was a candidate for a
third term, and 30G delegates clung to
his banner to the thirty-sixth and final
ballot when Garfield waB nominated.
A remarkable featuro of the conven
tion was the dominance of Bryan. De
feated for temporary chairman by
Judge Alton B. Parker, who was put
forward by tho conservative olement,
he refused to subside, and maintained
a bellgerent attitude throuKhout tho
convention, and several times hurled
a thunderbolt which set the delegates
and spectators on edge. The, specta
cle was unique la American politics.
In no national convention In recent
years has ono man by sheer force of
hiB personality been able to upset the
plans of tho loaders, overturn long es
tabjlohed precedent and force an In
tensely hostile opposition to adopt his
views without a strenuous fight.
Bryan repudiated tho Murphy-Tag-L'art-Sulllvan
attempt to mollify him,
ind refused election as chairman of
fio resolutions committee
Bryan won another victory when ho
forced tho adoption of a resolution to
defer adoption of tho platform until
after tho nominations wero mado.
