Only, two candidates for the -presidential nominations were balloted for Mr. Wool-ley, and Rev. S. C. Swallow Pennsylvania; -Hale Johnson, of Illinois, withdrawing his name at the last moment and throwing his strength to Mr. Woolley. This, undoubtedly, had' a great effect upon the result, as the convention earlier in the day had been nearly stampeded for Swallow by; an eloquent speech of Homer L. Castle, of Pittsburg, and had the friends of the Pennsylvania parson forced a ballot at that, time, the result might have been different. For vice president, three candidates were balloted for, H. B.

During today's session Chairman Stewart, of the national committee, called for contributions for the campaign, and-over $7,000 was realized in a few minutes. Attendance Wan Larger. The attendance at the convention today-was much-larger than yesterday. Chairman Dickie rapped the convention to order at 10 o'clock. After a brief prayer by C. H. Mead, of New Jersey, Chairman Johanna, of the committee on credentials, made a supplementary report, showing the delegates present numbered 730, representing forty states. On account of the failure of Dickie's voice, A. G. Wolfen-barger, of Nebraska, took the Nominations for President. The nominations, for president were then ordered and Oliver Stewart was recognized to place John G. Woolley, of Illinois, in nomination. On the announcement of Woolley's name by Stewart the delegates cheered, shouted and waved flags and handkerchiefs. Geo. W. Gere, of Illinois, renominated Hale Johnson. He was followed by Homer L. Castle, of Pittsburg, who placed in nomination Rev. Samuel C. Swallow, of Pennsylvania. As Castle concluded the most striking demonstration of the day occurred. Every delegate in the Pennsylvania section, with his hands full of gayly colored pampas plumes or with large" pictures of Swallow, jumped to his feet, shouting wildly, while in other sections of the hall the delegates blew horns and waved" state banners. The demonstration continued several minutes and apparently came near stampeding the convention. Swallow's nomination was seconded by John Hiopp, of Colorado Ralph T. Cour-sey, of Delaware, seconded Woolley. Rev. E. E.

A motion by Dr. Eaton to make the nomination unanimous was carried; and after resolutions of thanks had been passed and a committee appointed to formally notify the candidates of their nomination, 'the convention; at 6 o'clock, adjourned sine die. 1 The Candidates.

Some of his Intimate friends believe he' Is preparing to give up political life, or at least to turn over a great part of the work to his subordinates.1 Hitherto the "easy boss" has been a most Insistent autocrat. He has gone into the details of politics and has fairly reveled In the idea of deciding on petty officers all over the state. He has been in public life for forty years, and during a large portion of that time has been an active factor In New York politics. Besides that he has been at the head of a great express company for twenty years. A1I this strenuous life, -it is said, has had its natural effect, and the gossips are turning toward Ben Odell as the one man above all others in New York upon whom Piatt's mantle is likely to fall. Odell Is likely to be the candidate for governor this year, and this will put him In a place where he could readily succeed Piatt in 1903, if the senator should retire from politics, as has been recently intimated. As his intimate friends know, Mr. Piatt has continued in politics as much for love of the game as for any: possibility of per-' sonal profit. He has enjoyed moving men about like chessmen on a board, but his control of state politics has become more and more of an arduous business, and if the New York gossips here can be believed the "old man's" physicians have notified him he must let go of the throttle soon or take the consequences, i Makes 150,000 on Wheat.

Washington. June 28. Serious reports have reached here from New York regarding the physical condition of Senator Piatt, of that Btate, It Is not asserted there is any Immediate causa of alarm' and there is a conspicuous lack of detail as to the causes which, have to the supposed' break down. According to. the report received through political sources, entirely by men here supposed to be on the inside In New York politics, Mr. Piatt is breaking down visibly and will either have to retire from politics or suffer the penalty. Just before he left New York for the Philadelphia the senator stumbled over a chair or something of the kind and suffered some internal, injury. After he reached Philadelphia it developed that he had broken a rib, and this was the cause of his leaving the convention the afternoon before Roosevelt's nomination: was. decided upon by the leaders. Those who were thrown into intimate association with the great New York boss at Philadelphia Were forced to admit that he was not in good shape physically, and as a result seemed to have lost a great deal of his mental force. The reports which. reach here now are along the same line and are to the effect that Piatt, never a particularly strong man, has at last begun to show the effect of the terrible strain to which, he has been subjected of late years. The senior senator from New York is only 67 years old, and he is less than a year the senior of Senator Depew. Senator Piatt's health is is said to have Leading democrats say thit me vnu reason for nominatlne Bryan on July 1S that it will enable the campaign orators to speak of him as the great statesman nominated on the anniversary of the dec broad land that whether mono or bimetallism be the standard of value, that while we pour Into the dramshops of America each year a sum equal to three times' the entire cost of the Spanish war poverty will exist and increase.
