There had been but four votes cast now by delegates—contrary to the will of tho majority —and those four votes, he argued, could not bind the 20 non-voters nor disgrace the state of Wisconsin, whllu the convention stood under the platform adopted by it, [Derisive cheers from th« silver men of the convention.] Ruling or tho Chnlr.

The'presiding officer remarked that while ho did not think the genileman had mnde any motion, he would so consider it, acd would announce that the gentleman from Louisiana moved that the two-thirds rule be abrogated. Senator Blancliard said that he was authorized by the Louisiana delegation to say that the motion of the delegate (Mr Marpden) was not made at its suggestion, 'and to move to lay,.that motion, on the ..table.

At the same time a point of order was made that the motion to abrogate the two- thirds'.'rule must be first considered by the committee on rules, and the point of order v,-a&, sustained by the chair.- Thereupon Mr. Marsdeh, smiling, but discomfited, retired from the platform, saying to the chairman as he left the stand: "You will hear from me later." , Tho Third Ballot. .

We want no uncertain nor doubtful leader. No 'laggard In peace, or dastard in war.' No latter day silver saint, but a g'izzled and scarred veteran, who has borne the heat end- burthen of the day, anJ whose breast 1* marked from edge of sword and point of lance on a hundred Melds. Twenty years ago the buttle for silver was -begun In tb* halls of congress by a modest, unpretending, brave man, not an Iridescent nor meteoric statesman, but of the people and Irom the people, who has never faltered for an Instantln the great struggle'.

"If you ask 'whence comes our candidate?' we answer: 'Not from the usurers' den, nor temple of Mammon, where tho c!ink of gold drowns the voice of patriotism, but from the farm, the workshop, the mine—from the hearts and homes of the people.' "To reject him Is to put a brand upon rugged honesty and undaunted courage, and to chill the hearts and hopes of those who durlnsall these years have waited for this hour of triumph. To nominate him U to make our party again that of the people, and to insure success. " 'Give us Silver Dick and silvcrqulck.

The ixtnd came to the help of the ciinvcl, striking "]) "The Haul* Cry of :<'re<>dom." All the silver delegates rose to their feet, cheered and indulged In 8.11 the usual manifestations of pouular eo- Ihnsliism. so that what at first was but a faint wave of applause grew into .a tu- miiltuous storm, in ihe thick of which a Elu.iid banner was carried through the hall with the motto: "Silver Dick—The People's Choice." A band of music at either end of the hall added to the uproar, while t'K- ofllclal band struck, up, amid s-reit applause. "The Red, White and P.luc." putting the rival musicians to silence. . By this tlnic thcr£ were T.hrr«? handsome sil- v(-r Bland banners unrolled and carried about, with a likem-ss of the car.dirtiUn mid the mottoes: "Free Silver, Free- People,:" "One God, One Country: One Bland;'* 'Tland, Silver's Invincible. Irrepressible, Irreproachable Champion." Meantime several of the silver 8elcs&tcs f-'ot into tha aisles and jumped erratically in time with the music. This scene lasted for fully 12 minutes. The nomination of Bland was seconded by Mr. Ovci-meyei-, of Kansas, Mr. Williams, of Illinois, and others. Under the call of states, when that of California was reached.

When the stale of Georgia was called, Mr. H. T. Lewis, of that state, came to the platform and put in nomination Mr. William J.

In the late political contests Mr. • Bryan ?too<1 among his peers, like Saul nmonK the Israelites, head and shoulders above nit the rest. "Honor him with the nomination," he said, "and you will do credit to the party and earn for yourselves the plaudits of your constituents and tha thanks of posterity." . , Another Wild Scene. . A scene which was almost a duplication or that which attended the nomination of Mr. Blend, was enacted when Mr. Bryan's name was proposed to the convention. The delegations from Georgia, North Carolina. . r,outslana, Nebraska, Michigan, South Dakota and Mississippi rallied around th« spear-shaped guidons which bear the name* of their states and indicate their position on the floor. All the silver delegates arose and joined in vociferous shouting and waving of hats, handkerchiefs, newspapers and every waveablc object upon which they could lay their hands.
