What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

RESULT OF 10S BALLOTS l i c i t RauduU* Political G*tRorimg in History of tho NitiMh-CeatMt Coatioi- Uod Through Sixteen Days u d N i | h t s . THE TICKET FOR PRUIDRNT John W.Davis,of Wost Virf inU FOR VICK PRItipKNT Chas. W. Bryan, of Nsbrsska By WRIGHT A. FATTER80N Convention Hall, New York.—“Ala­ bama caste t-w-e-n-t-y-f-o-u-r vote* for Oscar W. U-n-d-e-r-w-o-o-d I\ For •ae buadred and three times the treat hall had rung with that shout Sev­ enty-seven times up to Saturday Bight, aad It started again on Monday morn- lag, for the committee that had been named on Saturday for the purpose of effecting some sort, of a compromise between the contending candidates bad been Unsuccessful, and there seemed to be no hope for a solution of the difficulties In which the Democ­ racy of the nation found Itself. But the break came at last, and on the one hundred and third ballot John W. Davis of West \ tiglnla was named •a the standard-bearer of the party. His selection marked the conclusion of the greatest light la American polit­ ical history. It was followed by the ■election of G ot . Chariaa W. Bryan, of Nebraeka, for second place on tbo ticket, and the history-making gather­ ing was at an endr after being In ses­ sion for 10 days. Monday, July T, was a day of false hopes. At the close of the elghty- «eeond ballot a resolution was adopt­ ed releasing the delegates from any Instructions, and that was expected do bring about a break. It did, but It did not reeult In a nomination. It brought the McAdoo vote tumbling from Ml to 888 when the convention ndjoumed at night. Tufesday brought no ray of hope. In the afternoon Governor Smith and Mr. McAdoo got together, but Mr. McAdoo refused at that time to re­ lease his delegates, and Governor Smith would not withdraw so long as Mr. McAdoo remained in the race. The fruitless balloting continued through the day session, and up to the ninety; ninth, completed at 2:15 Wednesday morning. At that time Mr. McAdoo released his delegates, and on the one hundredth ballot his vote dropped to 110. After that ballot the convention adjourned until noon on Wednesday In an effort to get together on some dark horse. The one hundred and first, and the one hundred and second ballots did not Indicate anything more than the elimination of both Smith and McAdoo from the race. Alabama, loading the poll call of states, continued to cast Its 24 votes for Underwood, hot there was a drift In both ballota to Davis, p n tha one hundred and third ballot 'Alabama again started off with \24 -votes for Underwood,” but It wtS soon demonstrated that Davia was going •strong. Before the ballot was com­ pleted he bad more than a majority, And then the delegations b«gan chang­ ing their votee In order te get into the band wagon. Before the reeult of the ballot was announced It was moved to make the nomination by ac­ clamation, and It went through with a ,whoop, to be followed by a demonstra­ tion lasting several minutes. lb s night session of Wednesday, following the nealnatien of • candi­ date fbr the Presidency, was la the natnre of a Democratic levcfeast It eras addressed by Governor Smith, Governor 0 « , the Democratic nomi­ nee, Mr. Daria and several ethers.

Neither of the two leaders could be nominated unless the other gave way, or unless one could break the seemingly solid phalanxes of the other. It was under suclT conditions that both took personal command of their forces Instead of leaving the di­ rection of the campaign In the hands of their manager*. Others In Limelight Aside from the two leaders there wore, as serious contenders for the nomination, Senator Ralston, bucked by th# solid Indiana delegation; Sen ator Glass, backed by Virginia ; John W. Davis, backed by West Virginia ; Ex-Governor Oox, backed by Ohio ; Senator Saulsbury, backed by the six votee of Delaware; Governor Ritehle backed by Maryland; Senator Under wood, backed by Alabama. Other favorite sons that had been entered In the htg race dropped by the way side, but those named above stuck for ballot after ballot, with their managers expecting that some one of them would eventually be picked as the compro­ mise eandtdte, They realised the in­ tense feeling that had erisea between the opposing camps of th« leaders, and did not believe It good political strategy to side with either, each one hoping that In the end their csndl date might draw from both sides when the break came. On tha part of the two leaders ev­ ery plan known in political campaign ing was used to Influence delegates. There was an abundance of the usual démonstrations, long and noisy. There were dire threats tnd earnest plead Inge to attract support, Those dele­ gations that were not directly In atructed, or not definitely committed to some one candidate, would occaslw. ally switch to or from one or the oth­ er of the leaders. This was especial­ ly ¿rue as It applied to Mr. McAdoo, ■nd because of this his vote fluctuated from a little over 400 to as high as 630.' Governor Smith's vote remained more nearly stationary at between 315 and' 80S, but that and others that would go to him on a break, was enough to prevent a nomination of any other candidate. O r Wednesday afternoon Mr. Bryan, asking for consent to eiplaln his vote as a member of the Florida delegation, attempted to stampede the convention for McAdoo, but It did not - succeed, and the monotonous round of ballots continued without material change. On Friday afternoon, after 66 ballots had been taken, an effort was made to suspend the rules and permit the leading candidates to ap­ pear In person before the convention. It was opposed largely by the McAdoo delegates and failed of the needed two-thirds vote. Then Franklin D. Roosevelt asked that the convention extend an invitation to the Democrat­ ic-governor of New York to address the delegates. Again it meant a sus­ pension of the rules, and while the move was cleverly made, and re­ fusal would put the convention In the pftitioa of being discourteous to its Democratic host, It, too, was voted deem. Without such an Invitation no Candidate could get a personal hear­ ing. Friday evening Mr. McAdoo sent s jette* to the convention asking that t^4 delegates give unanimous consent for Governor Smith to address them. Sevenl objections were made, and the we* not given. Again a elev- move bed faded. Outside of tho convention hall the lenders of tho party, those not Im­ mediately connected with the cntdl- of the two leading candidates, strenuous effort* te and patch up the the flglrt bed »reused. They pleaded, they commanded, they 0MMUMM. were the results achieved For those nets of congress to which he could give approval he claimed full credit for the Democratic party and What he referred to as the progressive etc ment In the Republican party. For the majority element In the Republican party he had no single word of com- j meudutio». Iiut no one was very much surprised at ull of that, as &0 one had expected him to commend the enemy. That wus not what he was th: re to do, Rvui Congressman The­ odore Rurton, the Republican keynoter .it Cleveland, who attended the Ueniu (■ratio show as a guest, did not seem to tirfce uny serious offense at wtmt woe sold about himself and bis Re- publican colleagues. Jt did not seem that Senator Har­ rison had overlooked anything that could be said In opposition to the Re­ publicans, but uloug cume the perma­ nent chairman, Senator Walsh, on Wednesday, June 25, with a new list of charges, or at least a new vocabulary. While he spoke the sun streamed dowu upon the glass roof of the convention ball and turned It Into a bake oven, but his denunciation of the political en cmy caused the delegates to forget, for the time, their differences over platform planks and fuvored candi­ date*, They shed coats and, In many cases, collars a* well; they displayed black apd green and blua ''galluses,\ and despite the heat enjoyed to th« full everything the leader of the ell Investigations gave them as first-hand Information. For it all they paid him to the full in convention coin a long, a loud, a terrific demonstration. When the delegates assembled on Saturday morning, June 28, It was with the expectation that they would receive the report of the resolutions committee, Rut that was not to be. For 80 long and almost QontlnuoU* hours the committee, headed by Homer S. Cummings, had labored over ltil home Industry by using this year 120, task, and the stumbling blocks It had struck were Iilan and League of Na'i again Importing that amount of can* tlons. On the latter subject Ex Secre- tary of War Buker was leading thdVi basic Industry In this State which fight to a strulght-away declaration in favor of the League, and would be satisfied with nothing less, but he was lu the minority. That did not repre­ sent a serious situation for the party,, but the other subject, that of the Iilan, did. There seemed to be ne grounds upon which to compromise, and at the end of 80 hours of lubut the venerable leader, William J. Bryan, dropped to bU knees In the committee room and asked tha members of tbs committee to join with him In asking Divine guidance tq tbc(r hour of diffi­ culty. The resolution Mr. Bryan favored, and for which he had worked through the long hours, contained a plank on the subject of religions liberty, and condemning secret orders that were opposed to the provisions of the Con­ stitution, but It-did not name the Klan. That was the plank that was written Into the majority report of the committee. But It was not satisfac­ tory to s large element In the party. Governor Smith announced that be would withdraw from the contest fot the nomination If the party attempted to straddle the subject. William R. I'attangall, 'Democratic candidate for governor of Maine; Balnbridge Colby of New Jersey, former secretary of staae; Joseph A. Kellogg of New York, were among other leaden that were backing Governor Smith and his fol­ lowing. Fight Ower Platform The committee did not report until after three o’clock Saturday afternoon, and then they gave to the convent!«! both a majority and minority report on these two planks. The threatened dissension la the party had been car­ ried from the committee into the Helena.—Governor Joseph 11 Stoat has issued a strong appeal to people to help build Montana's pros­ perity by using Montana-made sugar exclusively. He says : \My attention having recently been called to the campaign that has been put on by th* people Va some localities of Montana fee the more extensive as* of Montana Products, of course I am wholly sympathetic with the purpose Involved. In this same connection, I have often wondered why the people In the various localities of the state have not been more emphatic in their urging the use of one Of the mala products of Montana agricultural in­ dustry, and that Is our home grown j and manufactured Montana beet sugar. ! For years I hove been convinced that one of the real factors In the develop­ ment of the Irrigated sectlous of this state was the growing of sugar beets. The big sugar factory at Billings has been one of the Institutions that has done as much to stabilize agricultural conditions In central Montana as any other one thing. \Last year Montana produced over 60(1,000 bags of beet sugar. During the same period M<o » nu comsumed a total of 807,000 bags of sugar, of w hich 247,000 hags were our own state pro­ duction, the other 120,000 bags being Imported cane sugar. \These Montana sugar beet farmers are paid for their horts on the base of the net selling price of sugar Ow­ ing to the freight rate Situation, the sugar from each top of sugar beets raised by Montana farmers gives to the beet grower an tnrrease of $1.18 Çer ton for his beets on the sugar sold within the state. Last year Montana farmers cultivated and sold the beets from 20,000 acres of Irrigated land and I understand thtt for the present season more than 80,000 acres of beets have been planted. \The fact that last year we had to eitxirt beyond the boundaries of the state more than one half on Montana s sugar beet product In order to find t market, while at the same time the people of Montana Importer! Into the state 120,(XX) bags of oane sugar, does not tend to eeonomlcal growth of the State. Both the chemist and the house­ wife who has tried the experiment tell us that there Is no difference chemically, physically or In any other way between pure beet sugur and pur* .oans sugar, Why Should not the pen pie of Montana patronize their own 000 bags of pure beet sugar Instead of sugar. In this way we cun encourage lu the end will see sugar factories planted along the lower Yellowstone, the Milk Itlver valley, the Run River vulley and In the fertile Irrigated val­ leys of western Montana. “If we are In earnest In our earn- palgn to patronise home Industry and *t the same time help the agrieu1tur*l sections of Montana, let us take spec­ ial pride In seeing that Montana’s beet sugar Is need to th# exclusion of aU other.\ SPOKANE RANCH A.
