The convention adjourned sine die. ONLY ONE BALLOT WEEDED. The Delegates Prove to be Stronger Than the Party Leaders. MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Tune 10.—The battle has been fought and^won, and the administration of Benjamin Harrison is sustained by the Republican party in the renomination of the president for a second term. The result of this contest, which has been so stubbornly waged tor the past week, remained in doubt up to the very last stages of the ballot. Every resource known to political warfare was brought to bear by the leaders of the opposition to defeat the president's renomination, and for one brief hour in the middle of the day it seemed that the popular favorite of the Buckeye ftate was to receive the highest honor which can be bestowed by the Republican party. But men held steadfast to their faith, and this great contest, ia "the end, was determined ;by the instructed delegates frooi those ,sla e that tha.d given formal expressijn to their wishes ia the selection of a presidential candidate. It i= doubtful whether, any prev'ous convention in the history ot the party has witnessed more enthusiasm than was ceiled forth by .the name of Elaine to-day. Tbe consummate plans ot the organiz rs o( their movement lor the nominatiou of the ex-secretary of state were carried out in every parti^iMr, but the result demonstrated that a new era had arrived in national conventions and that the pre'er ences of delegates were no longer to be swayed by themanifesta i n? of the cheering 1 .thou ; ancls in the galleries Ac no time during U>e da> did l.henam? ofpresi dent of tbe Uaited States evoke tbe enthusiasm that was repeatedly called f'irtb by both the names of B nine and MvEm ley. ladced, the most fl tteriag civmiot. of the entire proceedings was prob ibly r >• ceived by the generom g ,ye.-nor of the Buckeye state when he insisted curving out his declarations of the pait and veto 1 .) for'President Harrison, in defiance of iht- expressed _ wish of his' colleagues fro'.n Onio and in opposition to his own interi;si as a presidential candidate It wa* a iv- pitition of the scenes of four years i-vac when _McKin]ey rrs? majestocal'y i-i tti< republican national convention at Coiurit,'", and declaring the Buckeye state wa- pledged to the candidacy of John Sherman —the greatest financier of the age—insisted that those who bore a friendship for himself from voting for him in the convention. The parallel between the action to-day and his actions of f mr yearn ag loses its analogy in the difference that his generosity of to-day was accentuated by the fac/ that Ohio was now in no wn'v committed to the Candida' y a the man for whom McKinley paid his loyalty. DELEGATES GBEATEK THAN LEADERS. The various members of the National committee, who have found such able cooperation in Es-Gov. Foraker. Es Senator Platt and Senator Quay, Wolc-jtt and Teller, maintained their powerful organization to the very last, but delegates were greater than the leaders in determining this contest and the votes pledged to President Harrison in the weeks gone by when Secretary Blaine was not a factor in the presidential race were at last delivered with fidelity in opposition to all the enthusiasm which the name of Blaine called forth. A half dozen conferences were held in the early hours by the anti-administration leaders to determine what was best to be doue. The proceedings of the convention show what the result of all these conferences was. It was determined to keep Blaine in the field until the spirit of the convention had been ascertained and then endeaver by a skillful mova to McKinley to stampede the convention for the governor of Ohio and the chairman of the national convention, ' McKinley was the very embodiment of the American ideal of statesmanship. He neither sought nor repelled the presidency, but pursued the even tenor of his course) with infinite justice in his rulings, regardless of the effect it might have upon him or his destiny. PENNSYLVANIA TUHNED THE TIDE. Pennsylvania was the first state to tur.i the tide against the compromise candidate, ushered fcrth by the almost solid support of the state of Ohio, and Matthew Quay to-day as in the four years ^one by, ia a prominent figuro in Republician politics. But to-day it was a demonstration that the delegates of the Keystone state were no longer plastic to his will, for it was the unexpected accession, of ten additional votes from this state to tho Harrison column_ that turned the tide iu favor of the president and caused so many Southern delegates as well as the states of South Dakota and Texas, a few minutes later to follow the example by giving a significant majority to Benjamin Harrison, practically assuring him the nomination. Up to the last William McKialey was suporb. When the nomination of the president became practically assured chairman McKinley beckoned to the stage Col Elliott P. Shepard of the Empire state and taking the floor, moved, that the nomination of President Hairison be made by ac- clammatioD. Tonight McKinley stands as having been true in the letter and the spirit pf/his fidelityJJD the president, and ao \t is but natural that'he IB the hero of the hour. Ei-Gov. Foraker of Ohio, .the fiery and eloquent fighter of American politics, generously swung the unanimous vote of the Buckeye state into the column for Mr.Kinley. No, this vote was not quire unanimous, for McKinley himself prevented it from being BO by refusing to yield the right of billot to his nl'ernate, and by casting his owa vote for Benjamin Harrison. TfILL WOBK FOR THE NOMINEE. , Of course,;there is a great deal of bitterness to-night, and probably much of this w !1 livijjdnring the campaign, but whether it will be sufficient to endanger the success of the Republican ticket is ve -f problematical . Cnairman Clarkson, Ex-Senator Platt, J. Sloat Fassett, Ex-Gov, i'or- aker and the others generally intimate tonight that their coals are off and that they expect to enter the political fray_ in behalf of the nominee of the Republican party. The rand and file of the delegates have had .their petty quarrels, their angry alternations on the strept corners, throughout the week, but for the main part they have shaken hands and made up to-night. Except in the cases where the presidential contest became the^asw for fierce factional disputes in localities, it is likely that all the animosity of the hour will be worn away in the early stages of the campaign. NOMINATING SPEECHES. tne iaWs, are me totmaation ot otrr -rce institutions, and the party will never r efforts until the integrity of the ballot and ,!' purity of elections shall be fully g na ra n J*S and protected in every State.

A sharp tap of the gavel at 11:35 checked the hum, and was followed a mo rnent later by Chairman McKinley order ing the aisles cleared and some sort of order established. The > prayer of Dr. Hoyt helped to produce silence and order. The reverend gentleman prayed that the man to be selected as the standard-bearer might be one chosen by tho Lird, and a man after his own heart. A little flutter of applause greeted the report by Senator Quay that David Martin of Philadelphia had been selected as Pennsylvania's member of the National committe*. M-irtin was Q lay's candidate, and his selection indicated the continued sway of tho senator in the Keystone state. A moment later Ccairman McKiuley said: "Mr. Qiay, of Pennsylvania, reports on the part of those opposed to the majority report, that they will make no further opposition to its adoption." Prolonged cheers followed this announcement of the tacit acknowledgment of defeat by the opponents of the majority report Jof the credentials comtnittp". and the report wa^ acopted by ac;lam (ion A separate vote was demandec!

MINNEAPOLIS, June n. — The following is the full text of the platform as completed by the committee on resolutions: The representatives of the Republicans ot the United States, assembled in general convention on the shores of the Mississippi river, the everlasting bond of nn indestructible republic, whose most glorious chapter of history is the record of .the Republican party, congratulate their countrymen on the majestic march of their nation under the banners inscribed with the principles of our platform of 1688, vindicated by victory at the polls and prosperity in our fields, workshops and mines, and make the following declaration of principles. We reaffirm the American doctrine of protection. We call attention to its growth abroad. We maintain that the prosperous condition of our country is largely d.ue to the wise revenue legislation of the Republican Congress. We believe that all articles which cannot be produced in the United States, except luxuries, should be admitted free of duty, and that all imports coining into competition with the products of American labor there snould be levied duties equal to the difference between wages abroad and at home. We assert that tho prices of manufactured articles of general consumption have been reduced under the operations of the tariff act of 1S90. We denounce the efforts of the Democratic majority of ihe House of Representatives to destroy our tariff laws by piece meal as is manifested by their attacks on wool, lead, and lead ores, the chief products of a number ol btates, and wo ask the people for their iudK- ment thereon. . We point to the success of the Republican policy of reciprocity, under which our export trade has vast y increased and new antl enlarge dmai-Uets have been opened tor tb« Tpr£ ducts of our farms and workshops We remind the people of the bitter opposition of the Democratic party to this practical business measure, and claim, thafexecuted by a RcpubHcan administration, our present laws evIUcntly givjj us control or the trade of the The American people from tradition and interest favor bimetallism, and the Republican party demands 11,0 nse of gold and sFlver as standard money, with such restrictions an" under such provisions, to be determined bv 0 " 1 "'" * CCUr ° U '° raai »" * laws and relations for .the restriction of crlmi! nal, pauper and contract immigration. The Republican party has always been th» champion of the oppressed, and recognizes ih dignity of manhood, irrespective of faith coin, nationality; it sympathizes with the ca'usanf home rule in Ireland, and protests against th« persecution of the Jews in Bussia. The ultimate reliance of free popular trove™ ment is the intelligence of the people, and tha maintenance of freedom among its m ' cn ™: therefore declare anew our devotion to libert. of thought and consoienee, of speech and press and approve all agencies and instrumentalltlM which contribute to the education ot the chli Creh of the land; but while insisting upon th« fullest measure of religious liberty we are on- posed to any union of church and State. We reaffirm our opposition, declared la UM Republican platform of 1888, to all combine tions of capital organized in trusts or otherwise to control arbitrarily the condition of train among our citizens. We heartily indorse the action already taken upon this subject andosk for such further legislation as may be required to remedy any defects in existing laws and to render their enforcement more complete and effective. We favor efflcicn I legislation by Congress to protect the life and limb of employes of transportation companies engaged in carrying on inter-state commerce, and recommend legislation by the respective States that will protect employes engaged in State commerce, and Ia mining and manufacturing. Approve the policy of extending the town* villages, and rural communities the advantage of the free delivery service now enjoyed by the larger cities of the country, and reamrm the declaration contained in the Republican platform of 1888, pledging a reduction of letter postage to 1 cent, at the earliest possible mo. ment consistent with the maintenance of the Postoftlce department and the highest class ol postal service. We commend the spirit and evidence of reform in the civil service, and the wise and consistent enforcement by the Republican party of the laws regulating the same. Tho construction of the Nicaragua cansl Isol the highest Importance to the American people, as, a measure of national defense and to build up and maintain American coraracrcj, and should be controlled by the United States government. We favor the admission of the remaining Territories at the earliest practicable date, having due regard to the interests of the people of the Territories and of the United States, All the Federal officers appointed for the Territories should be selected from bona fide residents thereof, and the right of self-government should be accorded as far as practicable. AVc favor the cession, subject to the homestead laws, of the arid public lands to the States and Territories in which they lie, under such Congressional restrictions as to disposition, reclalmation, and occupancy by settlers as ivlll secure the maximum benefits to the people. The World's Columbian Exposition is a grcal National undertaking, and Congress should promptly enact such reasonable legislation In aid thc-reof as will insure -i discharging of the expense and obligations incident thereto, and the attainment of results commensurate with the dignity and progress of the Nation. We sympathize with all wise and legitimate efforts to lessen and prevent the evils of Intemperance and promote morality. Ever mindful of the services and sacrifices ol the men who saved the life of the Nation, we pledge anew to the veterans soldiers of the Republic a watchful care and recognition ol their claims upon a grateful people. We commend the able, patriotic and thoroughly American administration of President 'Harrison. Under it the country has enjTSyeJ remarkable prosperity, and the dignity and honor of the Nation, at home and abroad, bavi been faithfully maintained, and we offer the record of pledges kept as a guarantee of failh- lul performance in the future.
