But after sitting until a late hour last night the expected climax -- the nomination of. William J. Bryan as the Democratic cat d;jate for president -- failed of realization. and all of the larger business of the convention awaits the completion of the platform. As a spectacular event, however, the convention has fulfilled the hopes of the most fervid party man, for the vast assemblage of delegates and spectators has twice been swept with whirlwind demonstrations, first for the leader who is about to be placed in nomination, and then for that other champion of Democracy. David B. Hill. But in actual accomplishment the day's work is confined to organization, with the speeches of the temporary chairman. Governor Thomas, of Colorado, and of the permanent chairman. Hon. J. D. Richardson, of Tennessee, the appointment of the various committees and the detailed preparations for the more serious work yet in store. It was an inspiring scene that Chairman Jones looked out upon when at ncoa. after beating a tattoo with his gavel, he stilled the tumult and declared the convention open. About him were fully 25,000 people, rising tier or tier, like the spectators in some vast coliseum, awaiting the appearance of the alternates of the party, while on either side stretched away, the rows of desks accommodating representatives of the press from every section of the country. Above and on all side? \vas a gorgeous sunburst of color, huge flags in rosettes and graceful fan shaped bunting, looped and in long streamers, mottoes and coats of arms of the many states, mingling this overhanging- spread of color with the bright summer hats and dresses of the many women present. But it was clearly not a gathering alone- of wealth and fashion. The bronzed faces of many of the men, their coarse shirts, coHarless and scarfless, marked them as from the soil. \V"itn hardly an exception they took off their coats and sat shirt sleeved. Many of the women were in cam- brics and ginghams rather than in summer silks and lace?, and the gorgeous costumes and picturesque hats ·were in an oasis of duller hue. It was a gathering none the iess inspired with the patriotic spirit of the day. which found constant expression in wild Imr- rahs at every sound of "Dixie" or "America." THE DEMOCRATIC l.KATJKRS. Mrn Who Ha-re Been Heard in the Pnrtj- Council* For Yr«ri. In" the body of delegates were the best, known men of the party, many of them of national reputation. Immediately in front sat Governor John Walter Smith, of Maryland, and his delegation. Alongside them was that notable New York trio. Croker. Murphy and Van Wyck. To the right was the classic face of Daniels, of Virginia, ·while back of him Arthur Sewall. of Maine, and Senator White, of California, conferred across the aisle. To the left, at the head of the Massachusetts delegation, was; their intrepid young leader. George Fred Williams. Near him sat Governor McMillin. of Tennessee, and the tall, gaunt, Clay- like figure of Richardson, soon to be permanent chairman of the convention. With the Kentnrkians sat their youthful governor. Ber.kham. accompanied by Senator Blackburn and ex- Governor McCreary. Senator Hil! was late to come upon the scene. The great audience had been eairer!y awaiting him. and his entrance was the signal for the first real ovation of the day. He, found no place reserved among the Croker-Morphy dignitaries in the forefront of the delegation, and contented himself with a seat far in the rear. Sitting with the Mississippi delegations a white haired lady alternate. Mrs. \V. J. Brown, of that state, and further hack sat Mrs J. N. Cohen, another Jady alternate from Salt JLake City. The y proceedings oi the convention were marked by two brilliant but rather ill timed speeches, one of ·welcome from the mayor of the city and other from Governor Thomas, of Colorado, assuming «he duties of temporary chairman. But the delegates fretted during these deljveraneps. and sought for more exciting themes. The first dramatic episode of the dajr occurred after Campaa. of MichiganThad secured the adoption of a resolution for the reading of the Declaration of Inde- flence. As the reading was about to begin two attendants pushed up to the platform bearing a pedestal and bust, both draped with the Stars and Stripes. As the orator raised his voice for the first words of the immortal instmment the draperies were thrown back, disclosing a splendid head of Bryan. The effect was electrical upon the vast assem- rm »n thst HiOin^Tlt hart Be!tter hean! tie £ia--«- r.or ^a rh* fx r ,e of tbf»ir !*~-i',ir. \» 'k^ tuarble i^a'Urci: W*?r*- IVv Ojiliil^ .i « - · * ^«*Ut UJ.' »hi«-h fairly ubook tb^ Mre! girders and above the storm family could b« he.»rd tiie strains of the band, whtct had broken out with the uaikical am- :h»3j Men ind wut£cCi wrr«r :ttt. wanes handkerchiefs, ct laas. and joining ia the wild v- As the orator sough' to there were demands from all pirts ot it* a»U 10 see the lull fsiv ot taeu Jeddrr. and as it *tj u.iu--,) about r.r»t this »ay and then i b a j . rath t u r n tvoked a fresh outburst f F.JU »ome new quarter.

Delegates stood on chairs and joined in the demand, and the senator was surrounded by a shouting crowd of insistent men. He smiled and shook bis head throughout the demonstration. Many of the New Yorkers joined in the tribute, but ft was noticeable that the immediate fol- tfyuv*".TM of Mr Crolicr. ~u»l tuo Tafii- many leader himself; held their seats and maintained a stolid composure throughout the remarkable tribute to their associate.

At last, when the demonstration had run on for 15 minutes. Hill could be seen rising from his obscure place in the body of the New York delegation. He bowed and smiled, and his lips moved to address the th.iirraan. But as well might he have addressed Niagara, for the waves of t u m u l t u o u s sound drowned everything, and he dropped back in his seat. When the delegates had time to think they began to ask each other if Hill was to be the hero of this convention, for another such demonstration, at an opportune time, might carry the convention off its feet and place him on the ticket with Bryan, in spite of all contrary calculations.

The reddinK of Mr. Van Wvck's document brought Mr. Ball, ot 'rexas. to bis feet w i t h th suggestion that th« dnanclal question should bo (mtnedt- at%ly takru up and passed upon. He said ii was apparent to all that there was no division upon any other platform question and that with the financial plank disposed of the preparation of the remainder of the platform would be merely a matter of clerical work. This suggestion wus adopted, and the toiwnittee immediately entered upon the effort to settle the question ot ralto. The session proved a very interesting one. and many speeches j were made. Mr. Van Wyck lead off w l t n a brief statement, saying that while la his platform be had referred to four Issues 'as prominent, namely those of imperialism, militarism, trusts and tne finances, ho considered t h a t only threo of these were of current consequence, believing thai the money question had been crowded into the background by other subjects which bad pressed to the front miring the past lour years.

The senator said that no man who knew him would doubt lor a minute that he now stood where be had stood on the silver question in 18!;5. and that he entertained precisely the same views on this subject which then controlled him. He was, however. I anxious to bring back into the fold of ( the party those who had left It four J years ago on account of the. position ! taken on the silver question, and if ' this could be accomplished, as he be- ' lieved it could be. by omitting all referencf; to the ratio, be. for one. was content to pursue that coursp. simply reaffirming the Chicago platform. to u ibai the 'mt-auou -.!^. for h.r::, ts-it Hili vl '·*· 3-! ; u , i » » .-«.·. aOd It la pOSJlble if h* tu^k.-.- a sjwet-h on the put form tie will make it pUin t h a t he catitiut U" a candidate on a Bryan platform He ia.Ti rOiphaiKaiit that be » i l l not IK- uominat.-J Two other bourn* remain in uiuch the ijiue tiitidiiton they were on Tuesday.

"Platform Approve^ liy Mr. Brynn Should Or Good KnooKli." Mr. Fitzgerald, of Colorado, followed in a warm speech, denouncing in most emphatic language any effort to minimize the financial question. He asserted that the omission of a declaration on ratio of the two metals would be a mere evasion" and concealment; that such evasion would fool no one; nor catch any of the gold standard people whom it was meant to entrap. It was only meant to be construed as a silver plank in one section of the country and as an anti-silver piank in another. S;:eb a course as this ·would fail to-satisfy the people of all sections. "If," he said, referring to the platform presented by Mr. Metcalfe. "Mr. Bryan is a good enough, then tbu platform approved by him should be good enough." George Fred Williams, of Massachusetts, also made a spirited argument for a specific declaration on the question of ratio. Mr. Williams was fre- qu"eTrtty applauded during the course of his remarks. He was followed by Mr. Daly, of New Jersey, who made a plea for conservation and for concessions to the moderate wing of the party. At the conclusion of Air. Daly's speech the committee concluded to take a recess until S o'clock. At that hour the arguments ^were resumed, with the debate still 'linfinished when the committee adjourned. Great interest was manifested in the speech of Carter Harrison, of Chicago. HP went over many of the arguments that have been made since the issue v;as raised and declared that the proper action of this convention was to reaffirm the Chicago platform.
