Con* itectlcut is Vitally interested In this question and though classed as a 'loU'btrtU state, We believe we shall carry «er In NoVem-ber for the candidates of the republican party. "1 have the tonor arid pleasure of naming: for the second place on our national ticket* a Connecticut man. a man Who represents the Sentiments of .the republicans and protectionists and sound money men—a staunch and tried republican, a man equally distinguished for ,his rare courage, 'liis energy, Ms integrity and ihis ability. I nominate Hon. Mo'i'ft-an <3. ttulkely of Connecticut for vice-president of the United States." Mr. Fessenden sketched Mr. Bulkeley'S successful career and said he was now at the head of one of the largest •business enterprises of the .state and tad been thrice elected mayor of the democratic city of Hartford and had given them a magnificent administration. THE WINNER PUT FORWARD, John Franklin Port Nominates Garrett A. Hobart of New Jersey: St. Louis, June 18.—Judge John Franklin Fort of New Jersey placed in nomination Hon. Garrett A. Hobart. He said: I rise to present to this convention the claims, of New Jersey to the vice-presidency. • We come because we feel that we can, for the first time In our history, bring- to you a promise that our electoral vote will be cast for your nominees. If you comply with our request, this promise will surely be redeemed. For forty.-years, through' the blackness of darkness of a universal triumphant democracy,- the republicans of New Jersey have maintained their organization and fought as valiantly as if the outcome were to tye assured victory. Only twice, through all this long period, has the sun shone In upon us. Yet, through all these weary years, we have, like "Goldsmith's Captive," felt that "Hop?, like the gleaming taper' slight, Adorns and cheers our way; And still, as darker grows the night, Emits a brighter ray." The fulfillment of this hope came in 1894. In that ..year, for the first time since the republican party came into existence, we sent to congress a solid delegation of eight republicans, and elected a republican to the United States senate. We followed this "in 1895 by electing a republican governor, by a majority of 28,000, and in this year of grace we expect to give the republican elotors a majority of not less than 20,000. I come to you then today in behalt of New Jersey, a politically redeemed and regenerated s-ate. Old 'things have passed away, and, behold, all things are new. It is many long years since New Jersey has received recognition by a national convention. When Henry Clay stood for protection . In 1844, New Jersey furnished Theodore Frelinghuysen as his associate. The issue then was the restoration of the tariff, and was more nearly like that of today than at any other period which I can recall in the nation's political history. In 1S5G, when the freedom of man brought the republican party into existence and the great "pathfinder" was called to lead, New Jersey furnished for 'that unequal contest William L. Dayton, as the vice-presidential candidate. Since then, counting for nothing, we ''"tiav'e asked for nothing. During this period Maine has had a candidate for president and a vice-president; Massachusetts a vice-president; New York four vice-presidents, one of whom became a president for almost a full term; Indiana a president, a candidate for president and a vice-president; Illinois a'pre'sident~'twlce and a vice-presidential candidate; Ohio two presidents, and now a candidate for the third time; Tennessee a vica-president, whom, became president for almost a full term, : We believe htat the vice-presidency in 1896 should be given to New Jersey, We have reasons for our opinion, We have •ten electoral votes; we have carried the state 'in the elections of '93, '94 and '95. We hope and believe we can keep the state in the republican column for all time. By your action today you can greatly a'ld us. Do you believe you could. place the vice-presidency in a state more justly entitled to recognition, or in one which it would be of more public advantage to hold in the republi-r can ranks? If the party in any state is deserving of approval, for the sacrifice of its members to maintain its organization, then 'the republicans of New Jersey, In this, the hour of their ascendancy, after long years of bitter defeat, feel that they cannot come to this convention in vain. We appeal to our brethren in the south, •who know, with us, what *t is to be oyeivridden by fraud on tl>e ballot box, to be counted out by corrupt ejection officers; to be dominated by arrogant, unrelenting democracy. We would have carried our state at every election for the past ten years If *.he count had been an honest one. We succeeded in throttling the ballot box stuffers and imprisoning 'the coirrupt election officers, only to have the whole •raft of them pardoned In a day, to work again their nefarious practices upon an honest people. But today, under ballot reform la-ws, with an honest count, we kn/nv we can win. It has been a long, terrible strife to the goal; but we have reached it, unaided and unassisted from •without; and we come today, promising to 'tWa 'ticKet here selected the vote of New Jersey, -whether you give u,s the Ylce»presidentia,l .ca.ndida.te qr not. We make it no test of our republicanism that we have a candidate.. We have been too long used to fighting for principle) for that; but we do say that you can, by granting ouy reqyeat, lighten ' our burden and make us a confident party, with victory in sight, even before the contest begins, - Wo may flO't carry Colorado, Montana an<3 Nevada this year, K the democracy declares fop free etlyep a,t J§ tQ 1- Let us hop,e we may, New Jersey has as m,any electoral yptes a$ these thve states together, WU yoy pot make New Jersey sure to tafee thejp place in the paje Qf need,?

St. Louis, June 18.—When the state of Tennessee was called Mr. Randolph, a delegate from that state, nominated for the vice presidency Henry Clay Evans, of Tenneggeg. industry, energy and ability to developing the resources of the state. He has won the. friendship, respect -and confidence of the people among: whom he llv,ea.. -They have put him-In various political positions. He has been the mayor of his o.lty, a member of congress from his district and first assistant postmaster general in the last republican administration. In every position he has discharged his duties honestly and faithfully and to the satisfaction of the people. After he had 'thus established himself, the republicans of Tennessee nominated Mm for governor and the people at the November election of 1893, gave him a majority of 748 votes over his oipponen-t. as Shown by the face of the re-tuns made by the officers holding the election. After the election a democratic leglsalture enacted a law for the purpose of contesting 1 It. It Is not too much 'to say 'that the law was de- 'signed 'to deprive him of the office to which .the people bad elected him; and the same men, who, as a legislature, had passed the law, assumed, under the law as judges to pass upon his rig-ht to the office. A pretended judicial Inquiry was Instituted; as a maltter of fact It was neither judicial nor fair. The Issues made were false, and the 'testimony garbled. The decision changed the face of the returns. Enough votes were taken from what he had received to give his opponent a majority and to change his election into defeat. The grounds of the rejection of the votes was not that they had been cast, nor that the voters were not legal voters, nor 'that the judges of elections had not been fully satisfied of their right to vote, before receiving their votes. All of these facts were admitted, but the decision was put on the ground that though -the voters 'had paid their poll tax and had receipts showing the fact, for the time required by the law, -such receipts had not been produced before the offlecrs holding the elec- 'tlon, and 'those officers, for that reason, had no right to receive their vote. In this way- thousands- of -citizens' were robbed of their votes, and a man never elected governor is now holding the office in the state of Tennessee. The people of Tennessee feel that a great wrong has been done them and they want an opportunity of expressing their public condemnation of the act. They want an opportunity of showing the confidence •they have 'In the cltizfin who 'has thua been defrauded &f the office to which they elected htm. They believe be Is worthy of any office within the gift of the American people., Bepresenting them here, I name for vice- presindent of the United States, Henry Clay Evans. The nomlrvaition of Mr. Evans was seconded by Mr. Smith, of Kentucky (a colored delegate), who declared that the repubWcain party was "-the grandest or-? gan'Izatlon this side of eternity," (I&U'g'hter a-nd cheers,) No republican.convention- *°r 'the last thirty years 'had failed to declare for it-he sanctity of the ballot, but it was necessary to do something more t'hani words. The convention) 'had -an••opportunity t'o do for southern republicans thait w'hl'eh H.tiad done for northern Industry, by giving to them a candidate for the v^pe presidency, who should be- to them renewed cowa-go 'and hope. Bleat EJv'ainis it'o the vice presidency, he »jald, and there would toe a new fence of rep'Utoltoa'n states' In the south. Jsn'M A. Wnllcer of Virginia, Mr, I, C, Walker, of Vlrglni* (colored), put In nomination tola .fellow delegate, James A, Walker. He 'told the conven* itton.
