NOMINATED ON FOURTH BALLOT
Bryan Steadily Gains From 105 to 380,
When Bland Withdraws In
Bis Far or.
Chicago, July 10. The convention
was called to order this morning at
10:55. A wild sensation was iprung by
the refusal of Hill and other gold stan
dard leader to attend the session. The
chairman ordered that the ballot be
taken. William F. Harrity in a brief
speech named Robert A. Pattison of
Pennsylvania. Miller of Oregon pre
sented the name of Sylvester Pennoyer
of Oregon. The mention of Pennoyer's
name called forth cheering.
A great demonstration followed the
ordering of the roll call. The first bal
lot resulted, Bland, 233; Boies, 86;
Matthews, 57; McLean, 54; Bryan, 105;
Blackburn, 83; Pattison, 95; Campbell,
2; Russell, 12; Pennoyer, 10; Tillman,
17; Hill, 1; Stevenson, 2; Teller, 8.
The remaining delegates, 185 in number,
refused to vote. A second ballot was
immediately ordered, resulting as fol
lows : Second ballot Bland, 257 ; Boies,
35 ; Matthews, 35 ; McLean, 54 ; Bryan,
186; Blackburn, 36; Pattison, 99; Pen
noyer, 8; Teller, 8; Stevenson, 6;
11 a. m. The third ballot was taken
resulting in Bland, 292; Bryan, 228;
others virtually unchanged. The fourth
ballot resulted in the nomination of Bry
an. The vote stood, Bland, 241 ; Boies,
' 33 ; Matthews, 36 ; McLean, 46 ; Bryan,
280; Blackburn, 28; Pattison, 97; Ste
venson, 8; Hill, 1; not voting, 162. The
announcement of the vote resulted in
, great cheering, culminating in a most
extravagant demonstration, and the
substitution of the name of Bryan
for various others voted for by
the delegates, which insured his
nomination. Bedlam reigned until
1:18 o'clock, when Stone, a Missouri
delegate, took the stand and read a let
ter from Bland, asking to withdraw his
name in favor of Bryan. Bryan is a
eilverite of the most prominent type.
His speech in the convention yesterday
was a masterly effort.
The convention then adjurned till 8
p. m. There is a great excitement over
the nomination of Bryan.
Mine Platform Declarations are Itlaclc-
llsted Money Flaak First.
Chicago, July 9. Sixteen delegates
composing the minorty committee on
resolutions, find nine declarations in the
report of the majority to which they
cannot give their assent.
A substitute for the financial plank in
majority report is as follows :
"We declare our belief that the exper
iment on the part of the United States
alone of the free coinage of silver and the
change of the existing standard of value,
independent of the action of any other
great nations, would not only imperil
our chances, but it would retard, or en
tirely prevent, the establishment of in
ternational bimetal ism, to which the
efforts of the government should be
steadily directed. It would place the
country upon a silver basis, impair con'
tracts, disturb business, diminish, the
purchasing power of the wages of labor,
and inflict irreparable evils upon our
nation's commerce and industry. Until
international co-operation among the
leading nations for the free coinage of
silver can he secured, we favor the rigid
maintenance of the existing gold stand'
ard as essential to the preservation of
our national credit.
"For the redemption of oar public
pledges and the keeping inviolate of our
country's honor, we insist that our pa

per and silver currency shall be kept at
a parity with 'gold. The Democratic
party is a party of hard money, and op
posed to legal-tender payment as a part
of our permanent financial system, and
we therefore favor a gradual retirement
and cancellation of all United States and
treasury notes under such legislative
provisions as will prevent undue con
"We hold that the nationa! credit
shall be resolutely maintained at all
times and under all circumstances."
The minority also feels that the report
of the majority is defective in failing to
make any recognition of the honesty,
and economic course and fidelity of the
present Democratic administration, and
they therefore offer the following dec
laration as an amendment to the ma
jority report :
"We commend the honesty, economic
course and fidelity of the present Demo
cratic national administration."
Senator Hill offered this report, and
also the following amendments to the
platform and moved their adoption :
"Amendment 1 But it should be
carefully provided by law at the same
same time that any change in the mone
tary staudard should not apply to exist
"Amendment 2 Our advocacy of the
independent free coinage of silver being
based on the belief that such coinage
will effect and maintain the parity be
tween gold and silver at the ratio of 16
to 1, we declare as a pledge of our sin
cerity that if such free coinage shall fail
to effect such parity within one year
from its enactment by law, such coinage
shall thereupon be suspended.
Mnst Fay Postage.
Chicago, July 9. Railroad companies
no longer may carry their business let
ters over their own roads without paying
postage to the government. An order
has been received from Postmaster-Gen
eral Wilson by Maior Stewart and Pout'
master Hesing, insisting upon the en
forcement of the postal laws against rail
ways carrying their own letters. An
exception is made in favor of letters that
have to do with the business of the train
carrying them. But all letters to station
agents and officials are forbidden to be
carried without postage, and the in
spectors are directed to enforce the law".
The railroads, however, will not be
required to mail their letters as ordinary
citizens and corporations. They will be
supplied with a specially stamped en
velope, which they must cancel on- de
livery to the trainmen. The express
companies have been using such en
velopes for some years.

SEUFERT CASE RESUMED.
The Jnry Rears Evidence on tbe
Question of Damagen
The Oregonian says the trial of tbe
cases of the United States vs. Senfert
Bros., to condemn right of way for the
proposed Celilo boat railway, was re
sumed in the United States court yes
terday forenoon, the jury having re
turned from an inspection of .the prop
erty in question Wednesday evening.
Mr. Seufert was placed, on the stand
and was examined as to the value of the
land, and everything proceeded smoothly
until his attorney. Judge Bennett, asked
what the land was valuable for.
Mr. Seufert replied: "For fisheries
and the terminals of railroad or rights of
way of railroads."
Judge Bellinger here interfered and
said he should not allow such a ques
tion, so revolting to his sense of justice.
It was fair for the jury to consider what
damage the fishing interests of the de
fendant might sustain from the appro
priation of his land, but it was not
right that a public necessity should be
made the basis for an appraisement of
otherwise almost valueless lands. That
any enhancement in value the land may
receive on account of the government
desiring a right of - way for a boat rail
way, through it should be brought into
the suit could not be allowed, and he
should bo instruct the jury.
Judge Bennett said the supreme court
had" ruled on cases bearing on this point,
and he was ready to present authorities.
Judge Bellinger remarked that he had
examined authorities on the question,
and that he should not allow the ques
tion. Council might take an exception
if he wished. The exception was taken
and the examination- proceeded.
Later, when a witness was on the stand
explaining the damages it would be to
defendant's fishing privileges, if he bad
to haul his fish in wagons or on a tram
way across the boat railway to the O. ft.
& N. road. United States Attorney
Murphy asked him how the fish were
brought from several different wheels to
the fish house. He replied, "In wagons."
Mr. Murphy then asked if the fish would
be any more injured if they were hauled
200 feet or so further to the O. R. &. N.
line. The witness seemed inclined to
avoid a direct answer, and began to talk
about various roads. '
The court asked him, rather sharply,
if he could not answer the question, and
told him he did not have to consider the
question of roads, as it was to be sup
posed that the road was there if the fish
were hauled. The witness then admit
ted that the fish would not be materially
injured by tbe additional haul.
The argument in the case will be made
this forenoon, and it is supposed that the
case will go to the jury about noon.
Through trains on the O. R. & N will
run via Umatilla, Walla Walla and Pen
dleton. Through sleepers, first and sec
ond class will run in connection with the
Union Prcific, the same as heretofore.
A through first-class sleeper from Port
land to Spokane, connecting with the
first-class sleeper to St. Paul and a
through tourist sleeper from Portland to
8t. Paul, will be run in connection with
the Great Northern railway.
