G. M-MH.LAN Convention goers of a generation declare that there has never been a cpn- •vention in Iowa that compared, in some regards, to that of yesterday. The re' Suits were just what had been predicted by those best Informed of the situation; but the fight in the convention, -for the gubernatorial nomination, was one long to be remembered. Such enthusiasm as was manifested by the supporters of Drake and Harlan, such determination to win -if enthusiasm ami noise could accomplish it, have never been seen in a convention in the 3tat<\ ' .'.'...'.,.-;.••.:....• Drake had the best organized forces, and it was organization that won the day for'him. Had the Harlan forces been as well managed, from the start of the campaign, there would have been little room for question of the result; the nomination of HarlanVmtght possibly have been compassed in the last threo or four days, since the flght has been transferred to this city, had there been euch an organization of Harlan delivefed ah eioqtient ftc fettirned thahkS for the UiVihe favof, that has bee'h visited on the state and , and asked its contihuahee.

The Drake men lost none of their work; they worked'intelligently, arid knew at all times just how they stood. ' .' Jt took six ballots to nominate Drake, and for a time the Harlan men believed they had a chance to win. The minor candidates were' gradually weeded out as the balloting-progressed. McFarland, after the ttrst ballot, threw: his forces to Harlan; and on the last ballot, finding that there was no other>hope of .defeating Drake, the Harlan men, who were disposed to be bitter, tried to throw their strength to Parrott,.in' the hppe that he could draw enough from othe,r quarters to nominate him. But not nearly all of the Harlan men would allow themselves to be turned over in this way; and the other candidates held on to their strength. They were there not to defeat Drake but to nominate themselves if possible, and they would not go into any deal with the,Harlan and MoParland- people. Thei;e was no way to defeat Drake; he had the delegates, and it was a mere question of time when they would be delivered in sufficient numbers to nominate him. The convention, aside from the one flght for governor, was harmonious. would be 'the best guard of the future of. the nation. May the men who were true to the flag be cheered in seeing their heritage preserved. We dwell with pride on the. past, and look hopefully to the future. With gratitude for the past, and imploring Divine guidance for the future, we commit ourselves ' to -Thee,' and pray for Div.lne leadership in the work that is to be RECEPTION TO SENATOR ALLISON ' The entrance of Senator Allison and David B. Henderson, just at the close of the prayer, was the signal for the first' and great -burst of enthusiasm. The two entered at the rear and climbed up.on the stage at the left hand side. As soon as they, .were spied by the crowd the cheering began; at first only a few knew .what, was the cause, but as the word ' passed around the hall and' they were seen by the throng, the applause swelled into a great wave as the senator in, response to calls, was. conducted to the center of the stage and introduced. Everybody. In the house was on his feet in an instant, swinging hats and yelling like marl. The senator merely bowed his acknowledgments and retired' to. his 1 ' seat.

The delegates stood up. yelled, blew decoy duck calls, waved flags and demanded to know 'wha'S the matter with Drake,'' replying in the next breath,that he.was. all right." , „ • When the vote was announced, after the cheers had subsided, motions to make it unanimous were presented from representatives of all the other candidates. The motion was put and carried by a great roar of affirmatives. 1>AUROTT~ FOR TUB SECOND I'LACK. The \VnterIoo Man «u Kn»y Winner lor : <• l,leuteimnt--CJovernor.

But the calls became too vociferous, the convention was again on its feet. Judge George G. Wright stepped across the stage and held out his hand to the senator. The latter at 'first shook his head, but this only made the crowd more boisterous, and he at last took the hand of the veteran statesman who had sat as Iowa's representative in the senate when the presidential candidate of today was at the threshold of his public career. Stepping to the center of the stage he bowed and smiled to the shouting throng. The applause continued until after the senator was m h Mr fil Lano was allowed to resume his address at the conclusion of the ovation. He was followed with closect in- tesest. When he referred to the demand that every article whose sale is legal in Iowa ought also to be legally manufactured In the state, there was more applause, But this outburst was spasmodic; It came only from some quarters of the hall, On& delegation , would be seen shouting and clapping, while next to Jt would be another over which dense silence reigned, The sentiment was as unpopular in some quarters as it was popular in others. The delegations from the river counties of course did the applauding; those from the Interior districts generally mani* tested no enthusiasm. Mr. Lane's references to the currency question'' were received very mucnas were his remarks on manufacturing ,llciuors, There were two or three attempts to start' an outburst- of -applause, but they were rather unsuccessful.

At the conclusion of General Drake s address the third ballot for lieutenant governor was begun. > I. S.

The ballot was simply a landslide. It concluded with this result: Parrott, 1,180; Dungan, 03. On motion the nomination was made unanimous. _ THK CONCLUDING WORK.
