s The publie mind is awak both to its
opportunities and its dangers. Nowhere
u tne world, in any era, did citizen
ship mean more than it means today in
America.- Men of courage and sturdy
character are ranging themselves to
gether with b unanimity seldom- seen.
There is no excuse for groping in the

will raise his eyes. -The American peo

it is idlo to -esist.
A wise man in any fool about to die.
Hut there is wisdom whieh with good
fortune may guide the living and the
strong. That wisdom springs from rea
son, observation and experience. Guid
ed, by these this thing is plain, and
yoimg men mny rely upon it, that the
history and purposes I have described,
rising even to the essence and Inspira
tions of patriotism, find their best con
crete example in the career and doc
trines of the Eepubliean party.
A Splendid Throng.
Hut not alone on the principles of
that party are its members in accord.
With the same devotion which . has
marked their adherence' to those prin
ciples, maknifieent and enduring as
they are, they have already singled out
the man to bear their standard and to
lead the way. No higher badgo was
ever yet conferred. But great as. the
honor is, the circumstances: which sur
round it make that honor, even more
profound, i. j
You have come from every state and
territory in this vast domain. The coun
try and the town have vied with each
other in sending here their contribu
tions to this splendid . throng. 1 Every
highway ia the land is leading hero and
crowded with the , members of that
great party which sees in this splendid
city the symbol of its rise and power.
Within this unexampled- multitude is
every rank and condition of free men,
every creed nd occupation. ,

most exalted office in the world. He is
no stranger waiting. in the shade wait

light. The American people nave seen
him for many years and always where
the fight was thickest and the greatest
need was felt. lie has been' alike con
spicuous in the pursuits of peaee and in
the arduous Stress of war. "
'; No man now living will forget the
spring of 9S when the American mind
was so inflamed and American patriot
ism so aroused; when among all, i
eager citizens surging to the front, as
soldiers, the maa vhqm this convention
has already in its heart was among the
first to hear the call and answer to his
name. Preferring peaee, but not afraid
of war; faithfulyto every private obli
gation yet first to volunteer at the sign
of national peril; a leader in civil life
and yet so quick to comprehend the
arts of war that he crew almost in a
day to meet the high exactions of com

- Test of Manhood.
; There is nothing whieh so tests
man as great, and unexpected danger.
He may pass Lis life amid ordinary
scenes and what he is or does but few
will ever know. But when the crash
comes or. the flames break out, a mo
ment 's time will single out the here in
the crowd. A I. rash of lightning in tne
night will reveal what years of day
light have not discovered to the eye.
And so the flash of the Spanish war
revealed that lefty eonrage and devo
tion whieh the American heart so loves
and whieh yon have met again to dec
orate and recognize. 11 is qualities ao

that exalted place since Lincoln has
been , better known ia every household
in the land. He is not conservative, if
Conservatism n-eans waiting till it is
too late. He is not wise, if wisdom is
to' count a thing a hundred times when
once will do. There is no regret so
keen, in man or country, as that whieh
follows an opportunity tinembraeed.
Fortune , soars with high and rapid
wine, and whoever : brines ; it down
must shoot with accuracy and speed.
U Courage and Opportunity. ,
Only the man with steady eye and
nerve and tho courage to pull the trig
ger; brings the largest opportunities to
the ground, fie does not always listen
while the sages speak, but every day
at nightfall beholds some record which
if not complete has been at least pur
sued with conscience and intrepid res
olution, lie is no slender flower sway
ing, in the wind, fcut that heroic fibre
which is best nurtured by the moun
tains and the snow. Ho spends little
time in review, for that he knows can
be done by the schools. A stacsraan

Ho believes in going aheadv He be
lieves; that in shaping the destinies of
this great republic, hope is a higher
impulse than regret. He believes that
preparation for future triumphs is a
more important duty than an inventory
of past mistakes. A profound stndent
of history, he is today the greatest
history maker in the world. With the
instincts of the scholar, he is yet forc
ed from the scholar's pursuits by those
superb qualities which fit him for those
great world currents row rushing past
with larger volumje and more porten

' v; . Tribunal of War.
The fate of nations is still decided
by their wars, t You may talk of or
derly tribunals and learned referees;
you may sing m your schools the gentle
praises of the quiet life; you may strike
from your books the last noteof every
martial anthem, andvet ' out in the

in the quiet of contentment and repose

American Interest.
This is the time when greeat figures
must be kept in front. If the pressure
ia great jthe material to resist ,it must
be granite or iron. Whether wo wish
it or not, America is abroad in thin
world. Her interests are n every
street,! her name i on every tongue.
Those interests so sacred and stupen
dous should be trusted only to the eare
of those whose power, skill and. cour
age have been tested ; and ? approved.
And in the man whom you will choose,
the highest sense of every nation in the
world beholds 9 man who typifies as no
othjer living American docs, the spirit
and the purposes of the twentieth cen
tury. He does not claim to be the Sol
omon of his time. There are many
things be does not know, but this s
snre, that above all things else he
stands for progress, courage and fair
play, whieh are the synonyms of the
American name.' ' '
Strongest Selected. ?
There are times wben great fitness is
hardly less than destiny, when the cler
ments so come together that tbey select
the arant thev will use. Events some
times select the strongest man, as light
ning goes down the highest rod. And so
it is with those events which for many
tinuths with unerrinsr sight have led
you to a single name which I am chosen
only to pronounee; uenuemen, x nomi
nate for President of the "United States
the highest liv'ng type of the youth, the
vigor and the promise of a great coun
try and a gre-it age, Theodore Koose
velt of New York.
Governor Black renounced the nom
ination words at iust 11:06 o'clock. As
he did so he retired quickly" from tho
platform. But the words f Theodore
Roosevelt had not left His lips wnen
there was a shout. The convention was
on its feet, ike the crash of thunder
that follows the lichtmnz. the enthusi
asm began. Flags were in the air, hats
were thrown up, , men jumped onto
chairs, women stood and shouted. The
air . was rent with one eontinnons, pro
longed ahout from thousands of throats.
Ro miirhtr was the volume of sound
that nothinz definite in the way of
articulate sound was aistlnguwhetf.
The Indiana delegation sprunff open
umbrellas of rel. white and blue, bear-
fner the Tortraits of Kooscvelt and rair
hanks, the Alankan totem poles were
held aloft and thousands or flags wav
ed in a-'wild sweep of colors.
The N-w York dclecation, occupying
n. ilne itnniediatelv in front, started
out on a marching tour of the hall.
MMnwhtt ilcmonst ration showed HO
siens of spending itself: five, six, sev
en minutes it continued. There was not
the slightest dim unit ion in the volume
of sound. ";.. tn
When the applause had continued al
most seven minutes, it was given new
impetus by Cliairman Cannon, wno
walked once more to the front carrying
bis large'banner. A little girl clad in
white waa lifted on the shoulders of
some of the California delegates, asd
the first sound of . her childish treble
was the signal for another outburst. A
delegate requasted-Chairman Cannon to
loan him the lartre flaa he bad carried.
and, with a smile, the chairman handed
it down. i .; , u - a ' -
Around the ball it went, followed by
a long line of shouting delegates. Cali
fornia, with Its great banner of purple,
white and gold, came marehing down
the center aisle, followed by Senators
and members cf Congress and others
prominent in the life of the nation,
trooping along behind, shouting laugh-,
intr and eheerinff. v '
A small boy," James Calun, of Geor-
gia, with long, curly hair, waa hoisted
upon the platform and he waved in
frantic fashion a small national flag.
Louise Roberts, a young girl who had
created enthusiasm in the ' California
delegation, was next carried up and J
down on the shoulders of a stalwart
delegate from Indiana. She created a
new furore of enthusiasm as she tossed
her flag to and fro. Little Naomi Da
foe, of Alpena,' MiehJ, stood for a brief
periob and when she had waved her
flag but a few minutes Chairman Can
non pushed toMhe front saying "l'lease
let mo in, my dear," he rapped vigor
ously for order.
The: applause at this time had con
tinued exactlv twenty minutes, and it
required fully five minutes and several
more raps by the chairman and the
strenuous work of numerous police nl
sergeants-at-arms to get the delegates!
once more into their seats,
When Chairman Cannon finally se
cured order, the secretary read a his
tory of the flag, which Mr. Cannon had
been waving. , Grasping the -flag and
waving it over his head Mrt Cannon
said: '
