IMPORTANT ACT OF CONVENTION
Oave the National Committee Power
to Throw Over Watson or Make
Any Other Change.
St. Louis, July 25. William Jennings
Bryan of Nebraska, who was nominated
by the Democratic National Convention
at Chicago, a fortnight ago, waa today
made the standard-bearer of the People's
party by a vote of 1042 to 321.
The Democratic candidate was nomin
ated in the face of his own protest, in
the shape of a telegram, directing the
withdrawal of his name, sent to Senator
Jones, after Sewall, his running mate,
had been ditched for the vice-presi
dential nomination last night, and Thos.
F. Watson of Georgia had been named
for the second place on the ticket. It
was also made in the face of an opposi
tion so bitter that, after, the convention
adjourned, some of the radicals held a
The last session of the convention,
which lasted from 9:30 o'clock this
morning until 5 o'clock this evening,
was marked by scenes of turbulence and
noisy excitement, which several times
bordered on actual riot, and which al
most precipitated personal collisions.
One fist fight did occur, a delegate was
ejected, and a West Virginia delegate,
inflamed by the action of the conven
tion, walked sullenly out of the hall.
The storm center, as on the previous
days, was in the Texas delegation. But
the really dramatic features of this wild
session were enacted behind the scenes.
Rumors of what was going on in the
wings reached the delegates, but they
knew nothing definitely, and to the very
end, a message from Bryan, which
might have changed the result, was
kept from their ears.
To add to the other features of the
day, the convention was without music,
and the hall was littered and bestrewn
with the grime and dirt of yesterday's
twelve-hour sitting. It was not expect
ed that the convention would last more
than than three days, and the contract
made with the local committee expired
The Populist Bryau managers decided
at the outset today to disregard Mr.
Bryan's telegram of last night and to
nominate him and straighten out the !
tangle afterwards. They started out to
rueh his nomination through before any
other candidate could be put in the
field, as a football team, by means of
brilliant flying wedge, sometimes forces
a goal. But there was interference, and
their line was broken. General Weaver
of Iowa, the Populist candidate in 1892,
placed Bryan in nomination, and Gen
eral Field of Virginia, who was his run
ning mate, after a brief speech, moved
to make the nomination unanimous.
Chairman Allen held the motion was
in order, and that until that motion was
decided, the call of states for nomina
tions, which was the order of the con
vention, could not proceed. This ruling
also precipitated a riot. Some cheered
some cursed, some fought, and there
would probably have been serious
trouble bad not the Bryan leaders wise
ly concluded to abandon this so-regarded
high-handed program. But in doing
so, they opened the floodgates, and for
six hours the convention was deiuged
with oratory. Almost every state and
territory had its innings on the plat
form. Most of the speakers seconded
Bryan's nomination. About fifty sec-'
onding speeches were made, aud some
of them were both eloquent and bril
liant. The middle-of-the-road contingent in
sisted upon knowing at every opportu
nity whether, in view of his telegram,
Bryan would stand oh his platform and
accept the nomination. But all these
pointed questions were neatly parried.
Judge Green,' of Nebraska, and other?,
vouched for Bryan's sympathy' with
Populistic principles, but that was all
the satisfaction the radicals could get.
The' Texas delegation then sent a mes
6age to Bryan, at Lincoln patting the
direct question to him. To this no
answer was received, but the Democratic
candidate had been in constant commu
nication with Senator Jones, chairman
of the Democratic committee, and word
came to the convention hall that Jones
had a message which he wanted the
convention to hear.
Aa the roll call was proceeding, Gov
ernor Stone, of Missouri, appeared on
the platform with the Bryan message,
but Senator Allen would not permit him
to read it to the convention, and Mr.
Stone retired, very much disconcerted.
The Populist leaders had decided to go
ahead with Bryan's nomination irre
spective of the wishes ot the Democratic
Rumors that such a message waa in
the convention aroused the Lone Star
delegation to frenzy, and "Stump" Ash
by demanded to know if there was a
message from Bryan on" the secretary's
table. Chrirman Allen promptly re
sponded that there was not, but that
there, was some talk of a "fictitious"
message somewhere; he bad not seen it.
Literally, of course, Senator Allen was
He said afterwards, in explanation , of
his action, that Br3-an was the over
whelming choice of the convention ; that
the telegram, whatever it was, was not
addressed to the convention or to a Pop
ulist delegate; that it was purely a
Democratic negotiation, and something
with which a Populist convention had
nothing to do.
When the roll-call was completed, it
was found that Bryan had 1045 out of
the 1374 votes In the convention. Frank
S. Norton, of Chicago, was the only
other candidate, Ignatius Donnelly, of
Minnesota, and General Coxey, of Ohio,
were nominated, but their names were
withdrawn. Norton received 321 votes,
Debs 10, and Donnelly 1. -.Norton got
the majority of the solid vote of Texas,
Michigan, Missouri, Khode Island and
Wisconsin, and a respectable portion of
the votes of Alabama, California, Ken
tucky, Illinois and Ohio.
The conventiqn was hastily adjourned
after Bryan bad been declared the nomi
nee, and the radicals in the Texas, Ar
kansas, California, Illinois and Maine
delegations proceeded to organize their
"rumjj" convention. '.
