Bryan's Ineffectual Rally.
Bryan fought to prevent Parker's
nomination, and to do It rallied all
the favorite sons of the anti-Parker
forces. He urged each to try to hold
his own men in line. The anti-Parker
people played for time all night, while
at every opportunity they hammered

charge that my leadership was faulty,
that I failed, but I dery you to say
that I have been untrue to any trust,

Bryan's speech threw the conven
Hon Into an uproar, but the plans of
the Hill, Belmont and Murphy com
bine were too well laid to be shaken.
It was a case of Parker on the
first or second ballot or Parker beat

Shohan brought together the forces
organized during an arduous cam
paign of months in supreme effort to
land the New Yorker.
At a final conference of opposition
leaders it had been determined to at
tempt to wear out the Parker forces
and force an adjournment until to
day, but the Parker managers were
not long In discovering tho antls'
plan of campaign, and with the dis
covery came tho statement In grim
tones that If It took until i Jn the
morning the fight would go on. It
did take that much time, and then
Everything that had gone before in
convention affairs was preliminary to

Ten Hours Fight.
For nearly 10 long hours masterful
men, leaders of the party, battled
with all tho strength and ingenuity
that long years of experience endow

opposing forces. They hurrahed,

stronger in 1900 than In 1896, and the
