Noth- the main a tteat effort. Coftgfe§rm<att Henderson, when called upofl, delivered a characteristic addre'ss full of biting sarcasm and with a combination of campaign and camp-flre flavor. The members of the delegation to St. Louis are loyal to the low?, candidate and will not talk of secohd choice. A preliminary canvass shows that something more than half of them Will go to MciKinley if the time ever comes when Allison's case Is hopeless, but they consider that a matter for future thought. The delegation held a meeting after the adjournment of the convention fot the purpose of getting acquainted but took no action. It is understood that Congressman Henderson will be chairman of the delegation and present the name of A.lllsoh to the national convention. Revolt Against CiflCkson. The threatened revolt against J. S. Clarkson did not assume a tangible form, and as was the case with all ac* tlon by the convention, the delegates at large were elected by a unanimous vote. The opposition to Clarkson cropped out in the Fourth district caucus, where a resolution Introduced by J. E. Blythe endorsing the slate candidates for delegate at large, provoked such bitter attacks on Mr. Clarkson from Senator Ferrin and Ex-Representative Smith of Mitchell county that it was withdrawn. Mr. Clarkson's enemies now propose to antagonize his re-election to the national committee and it is understood that a number of the district delegates to St. Louis were chosen with a yiew to his defeat. The chief trouble in forming a combination against Clarkson lies in the difficulty of finding a man of sufficient experience in practical politics to be qualified for the position who will consent to become a candidate against 'him. Many of the best known politicians of the state have in the past been intimately associated with Mr. Clarkson, many have been the, recipients of favors at his hands and they are not all forgetful or ungrateful. The opponents of Mr. Clarkson made a political blunder for instance when they sought to develop a movement in favor of Dolllver for delegate at large. They overlooked the fact that Dolllver at the beginning of his political career 'had the friendship and encouragement of Clarkson and could not at this time in common decency antagonize his friend and benefactor. Most of the delegates to the state convention left for home on the late trains last night, and today those who are members of the legislature will take up the usual routine. thg speaker could only wait till the au- dfehce was tired, tfteh fee lattnched into his speech, beginning With the e*i presston of his gratitude tb the! commit* tee and the convention for the distinction conferred on htm in his selectioft for the place of temporary presiding offlcet; The first allusiori to the Iowa candl* date for the presidency was hardly A| adroit as would have been expected^of Mr. Dolllver, it was abrupt, a&d. took the audience by storm; but despite the surprise, when the name came out It was received by a new outburst of ap* plause that showed that the convention waa a long way from being tired Of H9 favorite theme. From this point on the convention was in a fever of anjtiety lot opponunities-to _applaud r an£it found them once, , as often as they were Wanted. when the name of Blalne was once, we mentioned, It brought out one of those bursts %f sentimental applause that proved that the name has not yet lost its value In a republican gathering. The dtcusslon of the revenue situation of the government, the tariff question, With the demand for protection, and ol the placing of the finances. of the country on a solid basis, was punctuated the symposlttte of f|t«*«^ la complete.

We are here to ofletta the republicans of the United Stat&s ft leader in the great totitesfc or the qomlhig autumn, a leader Who llstemB before he commands and who teflects befote he decides. A leader who has gathered that priceless truth that the Wisdom of all the people Is higher, greater and better than the wisdom of e-tvy taatt. A leader who has learned that eohie men never learn, that •when a voice goes up from the hills aaid the »otin- tatns and the valley*) of the* United States it is a voice to be heard and a voice to be heeded. «ii_« I once sat irt a national convention and I heard that martyred Saint.of the republican calendar say It is fw>m the calm level of the sea that all terrestlal Ideas are measured and when that page is understood and that compar sonia explained, William B. Allison will com : expae, . mand in the mlttds and in the hearts of THE TEMPORARY ORGANIZATION. fir. Dolllver's Speech as Temporary Chairman —The Committees Named. Long before the hour for the convention to be called to order, the Tabernacle was filled by throngs of people. The arrangements for 'handling the crowd were not the best, and many people had entered the hall and secured seats before any of the authorities were on hand to see that admission was restricted to the holders of tickets. The result Noth ^ng was said either formally or informally as to second choice because Allison [a supposed to be in the race to win. Every county in the state was repre- iented and alternates and visitors filled 11 tho space in the commodious taber- lacle auditorium. Among the latter •ere many ladies, largely representing legislative circles, who manifested a .eep Interest in the proceedings and ere not'-at all careful of dainty gloves & they joined earnestly in the out- ,ursts of applause which followed upon lach mention of the name of "Iowa's fa- rorite republican som," and each point nade by the speakers'of the day at the ixpense of their political opponents. A iumber of Iowa notables occupied the itage, among them Governor Francis arion Drake, who received a. warm /elcome on his first appearance. Two irganizations furnished music for the occasion, the outcome of the rivalry be- [ween the Iowa State band and the Des loines Union band, for the honor and profit of being selected to accompany •"he Iowa Allison legions to St, Louis, 'hey discoursed selections aUerna^lv infi- met with equal approval, except [hat Professor Phlnney's band was able to secure unusual applause by the first ,ublic rendition of the new "Allison larch." The march was afterward by a male quartette. A Unanimous Endorsement, fThe endorsement of Allison was .anjmous, and in a way it was enthu- ,istlc, Applause was given at the ; oper periods and Allison badges rest- upon every breast. The big picture Iowa's senior senator, which orna- lented the rear of the stage, was a pnstant source of inspiration. There ras little of the wild delirium frequent- exhibited by politicians when boom- j theiv favorites. Applause would ir?in one section of the hall, be taken jp by all and die away, There was no tandlng upon seats, waving of canes ,nd throwing 9f hats. Congressman [enderson'a reference to the "Hectic, doodled, delirium tremens dedara- ion« of war" 'by President Cleveland, [tiered, in & spirit of partisan vttupera- lon, evoked a mpre spphtanepus dem- pstratlon than did Congressman Polll* fer's polished 'reference to the Iowa ",n,ai«|.at§. 4 campaign song concern- _g the patches 'on MS breeches caught ;he popuar Jieart to a greater degree the carefully prepared eulogy of Iv .,, wv op Allison read by Chairman Rich if the committee on resolutions, Mr. pQlHypr's address fell ghqvt of ex- ictaUQUf, in that \\ AW devoted wore pojlttps I", gepera.1 Jjti^n to Mr. was that many of the delegates had trouble in getting their places when they arrived. The hall was crowded when the hour came for opening the convention. The .district delegations were gathered in groups indicated by signs on red cardboard, and the lower floor and galleries alike were packed. On the stage were seated a large number of prominent people. The hall presented the spectacle familiar to attendants at state conventions. Every seat was filled and the chairs were crowded together as closely as possible for them to be placed. Considering the trouble in getting their seats, the delegates were orderly and by the time for calling to order the hall was in good order. At the table on the stage were seated State Chairman H. G. McMillan, with Mr. Dolliver and James E, Blythe. The stage Was crowded, like all the rest of available space In the hall. Among those who occupied seats were Governor F. M. Drake, Hon. P. W. Lockwood of New York, Senators Blanchard, Ellis and Gorrell, Ex-Speaker W. M. Stone, A. B. Cummins, John N. Baldwin, Col, Haynes of Centervllle, L. C. Meacham of Centerville, E. G. Pratt, E. W, "Wentworth, president of the State Traveling Men's club; Capt. John A. T. Hull, Senator Carpenter, Milton Remley, H. O. Weaver, Senator and Mrs. J. B. Harsh, Dr; and Mrs. J. T. Priestley, Mr. and Mrs. F. W, Myers, Mrs. F. G. Atherton of Osage and others. The great gathering was ready to become enthusiastic at every possible provocation, and it took advantage of the occasions offered by the appearances of Governor Drake, Congressman Hepburn and-other notables, who were greeted with outbreaks of cheers when they were discovered entering. Promptly at 11 o'clock State Chairman H. G, McMillan called the convention to order and read the call for the convention. The opening prayer was delivered by Rev. A. B. Marshall of the Central Presbyterian church of Des Moines. After the prayer the Iowa State band played the Allison march. It was the first public rendering of the piece, wihioh is by a Pes Moines musician, the words being by Tacitus Hussey, and sung by a chorus, The piece ev9lve4 considerable enthusiasm, at times the crowd shouting vigorously its applause, "Alliov.i rn n. iv was the title" on. <* song by the Guthrle County Glee club. It was sung by a quartette of good looking young men who took places at the front of the stage. The tune was "Marching Through Georgia," and the words, together with the spirited singing, helped add to the enthusiasm started by the first piece. The quartette was uproarously encored, and responded with a humorous selection that brought down the house. Its re* train was a touching allusion to what was represented to be the distinctive, badge of democracy this year, "A Patch on the Seats of Your Pants, Under the tails of their Prince Albert coats the members of the quartette each wore the badge whose tributes they were slng- jng. At the proper time they turned sllg-htly, and flirting their coat tails aside, exposed the patches to view, each time to be received with increasing enthusiasm, Aside from its ai> ralgnment of democracy for Us resppn* sibUlty for that patch, the song sounded the praises of Allison and brought QUt more enthusiasm, The great throng was In spjendl^ hut mor b,y this time, and when Chairman McMillan- in a very few wor<*s, with no attempt »t a spe.ecp, Jntro4w?e$ 9&v% temporary - 1 - !

He announced himself ready for the business of the convention. • The Committees. Before the serious work was taken Up, the convention listened to a musical selection by the Iowa State band. The roll was then called for members of the committees on credentials, permanent organization, resolutions, and for vice- presidents. The following were named: CREDENTIALS. First district—Geo. W.

After the announcement of the meet ing places of the commutes-the con ventlon adjourned until 2:30 p. n 1 ETHE PERMANENT ORGANIZE. Work of the Convention Dlsputched OwJP A. B. Cummins Permanent Ciia. .. -. When the 'afternoon session was called to order 'at 2 o'clock the great hall was again crowded. At the right of Chairman Dolllver sat A. B. Cummins, who had been picked for the distinction of being the permanent presiding officer. The chair first a.sked for the report of the committee on credentials, which was to the effect that the counties were all represented in accordance with the call, and that there were no contests. T-he only suggestion of one came later in the convention, at the roll call, when there was a question whether Pottawattamie was entitled to twenty-five or twenty-six delegates. It was decided by the chair announcing that he presumed there would be no objection to allowing the county to cast the twenty-six it claimed to be entitled to, and this was agreed to. Chairman Dolliver then Introduced Mr. Cummins as one of the best known of the fighting republicans of Iowa. Mr. Cummins was received with great en T thusiasm, for the choice was a very popular one with the convention generally. He made a brief speech in thanking the convention for the honor, and kept the audience applauding most of the time. He said: fir, Cummins' Speech, Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Convention: I am profoundly grateful for the 'honor recommended by your committee and now so generously conferred by you. I desire, however, at the outset to relieve every apprehension by stating to you that I shall consume a very few moments of your time; and if that should pain any heart let me relieve that condition by stating that after the business of the convention shall have been accomplished, if there yet remains time, we have the choicest assortment of eloquence within these walls that ever gathered in a republican convention, And it will need but your magic command to uncork St. I 'feel, gentlemen of the committee, very much like I did upon an occasion soma twenty-five years ago, when, fresh from college, with 'all my boyish enthusiasm yet un- dtmmed, I was asked'to address one of the first meetings, of the old soldiers In one of the mountain counties of Penn-» sylvanla- J thought I h'ad the world in my grasp, and as I.sat in the room the great" people of this country & higher place than any of hla competl- °Jiist one word more'. The state of Iowa has another demand, another claim upon the republicans of the united States. If the issue of the next campaign shall be as I believe It will be, whether the people of this country shall have work, whether we sha 1 draw those bounties of nature from the hills and mountains and plains and valleys and make them flt for American use by American labor, then I ask the republicans of this country to remember one morning of 1892 when the wreck of the republican party was scattered from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and when looking over this land there could be seen but one or two prominent peaks that had been saved, and among them was Iowa. I ask them to remember that when the manufacturers of the east, when the laboring men of Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois forsook the doctrine that had made men of them, that the intelligence of the farmers and the business men of Iowa carried tn-ai banner to triumphant success. This wir.s simply a beautiful oasts in the great democratic desert from which our brothers have drunk sweetened waters ever since. So there Is no place where the flog files in which the fundamental cloctiine of the republican party is so deeply set and thoroughly understood as upon the pains of Iowa and in Iowa men. Les I shall forget the promise that I made you, I repeat the gratitude I feel for the honor which has been conferred upon me and now ask the pleasure of the con- -Ve At°the conclusion of'Mr. Cummins' address he was cheered roundly. The other permanent officers of the convention were as follows: Reading clerks—James E. Rowen of Polk, W. S. Ken worthy of Mahaska Recording secretaries-W. E. Bullard of Wright, Paul McLean of Union, C. W. Carter of Sioux. Delegates at Large Named. The convention proceeded at once to its work. It was announced that the committee on resolutions had a resolution to present. It was sent to the platform and read at once. It was as fol- °Resolved, That the following named gentlemen be selected to represent the state of Iowa as delegates-at-large at the republican national convention to be held at St. Louis, June 16, 1896: D. B. Henderson, J. H. Gear, J. S. Clarkson, W. P. Hepburn. The reading of the resolution was punctuated by applause at the mention of each successive name in the list. As soon as the reading was finished, John N Baldwin moved that the resolution be adopted. There was no dissent; the question was put and carried by a great chorus of ayes, and the chair, without waiting to put the negative, announced that the resolution was adopted unanimously. The Alternates at Large. Nomination of alternates at large was next in order. I S. Struble of Plymouth nominated Phil Schaller of Sac county. Other nominations were, David Heinsheimer of Mills, H. G. McMillan of Lyon, Senator A J Erickson of Boone, who was put forward as a representative of the Scandinavian vote; Rev. L. T. Smith of Lee who was named on behalf of the colored republicans of the state; J. E. Foster of Mahaska, nominated on behalf of the same element, and Congressman George M Curtis, whose name was proposed by joe R. Lane, with a reference to him as tne man who had redeemed the Second district from democracy. The nominations being closed, James B. Blythe moved that the ballot be taken,- and that the convention vote by counties, for four candidates at a time; no one of them to be named unless he received a majority of all the votes in the convention, This carried, and the roll was called at once, It developed the only contest of the convention, and that was between the two colored candidates, After the roll had been concluded the supporters of Mr. Smith, finding that he had less votes than Foster, changed their votes to the latter, in the hope of nominating him; but it failed, as he was still considerably short of enough to nominate. George M. Curtis was the popular candidate and led the balloting. The roll call proceeded rather slowly, and as soon as it was completed the changes from Smith to Foster were announced and recorded. The result of the ballot was as follows: ' „ , Schaller, 724; Heinsheimer, 401; McMillan, 785! Smith, 462; Foster, 597; Curtis, 968. The counties which made changes were ^Allamakee, 12; Audubon, 8; flack Hawk, 16; Cedar, 12; Cerro Gordo, 9; Chlokasaw, 9; Clayton. 13; Fayette, 15; Harrison, 13; Howard, -7; Jasper, 8; O'Brien, 9; Page, 12; Taylor, 11; Washington, 9; Wlnneshlek, 14. Other counties made changes, but in the confusion the secretary was unable to record them. There appeared to be an opinion that Foster was elected, or there would evidently have been more changes. While the secretaries was counting up the vote somebody concluded it would be a good time for a speech. P. P- Henderson was called for, and in a moment the entire hall was in an uproar of shouts for Henderson, The congress, man from Dubuque got on the floor and tried to excuse himself till after the business could be disposed of; but, for two or three minutes the crowd would drown his voice in shouts of his name whenever he attempted to speak. He looked around at the shouting throng on the floor and in the gal' eriwand the Demonstration developed into a cpntest between his efforts to ma^himaelf heard and the «row£> endeavors to make it Impossible for him to he heard unless he wpu-ld come to the \tatform. Finally/when the_conyentlon T'hfs pifttfortt ftaS as We, the representatives of the dart party bf loWa, voicing the un Wlfl and enthusiastic purpose of IhS llcansof the state, herewith for^jiypre. • se'nt td,the republicans of the H4tio_ni the Hont Wllllant, B. Allison, United States Senator from Ip«ra» «Jk;jittlng cftndI date for the republican homihation for president of the United States. The repttbli* cans at Iowa, in their fealty to republican principles, and with a profound sense of their obligation to the people of the na* tlbrt to do only what seetris beat tb bring back to the prostrated interests of the na* tlon the .heflthyrivln* tonic of republican policy, present Mh Allison in a spirit, far above any considerations of state pride. For many years there has beett A Unlvefaal feeling among the people of Iowa that Senator Allison Is conspicuously fitted for the position of president of the republic, and this sentiment has spread widely over the nation. 60 that We present his hame today, In no sense of personal eotrtplltneht to hftn, In ho spirit of local pride, but In the profound conviction that we are, fulfilling a duty to the party and a duty to th We a be?"e've.that Senator Allisonjepre- eehts, as well as any Watt m the nation, the compe'.te«cy of the republican party to deal honestly, Wisely and successfully With all the interests of the country, For a third of a century the republican party has solved the most difficult problems and mastered the greatest difficulties in government, that It Is possible for a party to encounter. Its rule Was grahdly benenclent, and the growth and prosperity of the nation under it was marvelous. Since the democratic party replaced it in control, the record has been out. of wretched mismanagement and dismal disaster. It 19 this contrast between republican competency and democratic incompetency that will carry tho republican party back to power. The strength of Its cause will rest, not upon one Issue, but upon its demoti* strated ability to .meet all issues firmly, wisely and successfully. , Senator Allison has been a conspicuous figure In this benenclent work of the party •throughout its whole existence. No other man in the nation more emphatically represents the constructive ami resourceful capacity of the parly to meet, in a'prac- tical and successful way, the, difficult problems of ailmlnisraUon. For thirty-one years he has had a moulding hand in all the Important laws upon the nation s statute book. Throughout this long period he has been a prominent and Indefatigable laborer In all the difficult problems connected with the war and the means or sustaining It; reconstruction, and the harmonizing of the sectloris; the abolition of slavery; tho enfranchisement, education and upbuilding; of the negro, supplementing In this, the work o£ Iowa, which waa the first ritate to give the bollot to the black man; the .raising of revenue to sustain the government, pay pensions ana discharge thousands of millions of the public debt; tho creation of our financial system and the return to specie payment, the creation of a sound currency- tho up- building of agencies for the development of the west; the reform of the civil service; tho national control of-railroads; tho upbuilding of American Industries; the protection of dairy and agricultural products; the prevention of Chinese andpaupei and criminal immigration, and the crea- tfon of a pension list unequaled In tho gratitude or nations. „„„«•',»«* la If the dominant Issue of this contest i» to bo the tariff, then no man better represents it; for no man nas; been oftenei Dlaced in the leadership in the formation of republican tariffs than Senator Allison For thirty-one years he has been among; the foremost In their construct on and discussion, and always upon the line of that fair and sufficient protection that Is the strength, of the party P 0 "°y- f J*? .?£? chairman of the sub-committee that aftei many months of Investigation drafted the administrative 'Provisions of the custom laws, accepted under all tariff billB,_ since constructed, as most efficient in the ation He was chairman of the ------ Ffew^^ai iifr -offig, 3f; pir^M^Hig^s }S!i? e E!!;!P M ^\i n r,i h Vh e «e 0 U 0 re§ilvSS nota- bly'fhaf -* -—<-"-""<tv.
