Cox, governor of Ohio, was nominated as candidate for the presidency-of the United States in the Democratic natohal at 1.40 o'clock this morning. Th? fontlnatich came at the conciusipn of a 44-ballot struggle in he had steadily beaten down the forces of Wm. G. McAdoo, former secrt- tary.of.the treasury, and President Wilson's son-in-law. When the balloting on the. 44th vote had gotten to a. point where Cox had 702-votes and rapidly approaching the necessary ftwc-thirds of 729, Sam B. Amidon of Kansas, manager of the McAdoo forces "and "vice- chairman of the Democratic national committee, took the'platform and moved that the nomination'of Governor- Cox be made unanimous, 'im- mediately there was'a roar fVorrt the tired and .worn delegates which lasted for a. full four minutes before-Ghairman Robinson could put 1 he question on Amidon's Wolioit to suspend the rules and nominate Cox by nCciamstib-.' .L At 1.40 o'clock this morning the motion was formally voted over with a rolling chorus of ayes and a crashing of brass bands. -SAN -FRANCISCO, July 1 o'clock-the ninth session of the Democratic national convention was called to.order by Chairman Roo- ihson. According to the view of the various managers, there was as much of a- deadlocki on- hand as ever.- The Cox people declared: "McAdoo can't be .nominated if we stay here three .weeks." Tre'McAdoo people made practically the same prediction about Co.x. Both fortes were claiming up around 500 delegates on the early roll N call today. After reading the Declaration of Independence, Chairman Robinson ordered the roll call of. states and the taking, of twenty thirf ballot began. The result showed no material change in the deadlock. The leaders stood: Davis The changes showed that Cox lost five; Palmer gained 15; McAdoo lost 8. -RING LARDNER GETS y2 VOTE As the favorites on voles some of the delegates added a touch of humor. threw a! half vote for.

Vice-Presldent To Be Named In the confusion and excitement of ft nomination, tho body.of delegate? forgot about a nomination for vice-, president, but leaders -were figuring on a list which prominently included Franklin Hoosevelt of New York, as- sistant secretary of the navy. While the crowd was demonstrating its re- lease from the deadlock, tho leaders arranged an adjournment until noon today to canvass thu.question of sec- ond place, In the meantime, and will meet again prepared to complete the ticket Cox Slide Started Monday Tho Cox band wagon movement really "started late yesterday after-, noon before the recess for dinner. the interval both side-3 of the fight made desperate appeals to. Tam- many. Throughout tbc evcnjng NTew York's vote stood unchanged, 20 for McArtoo and 70 for Cox. On the third batioi of tho evening session the slide to Cox started and before tho leaders of flio opposition could realize it, the votes were flopping oyer in twos and Ihreca and fours In a fashion which Beiit him over the majority mark and put him on a new level. After that tho was easy. Georgia went into the Cox column with her entire 28, the 'Withdrawal of Attonmy-Gen- eral Palmer had released not only the. Pennsylvania delegation but other delegates who wanted to slide lo Iho Cox column. The accessions of threes and fours wanting to slide lo Cox soon grew Into blocks and when the 44tli ballot was well on its way Ihe votes were tumbling into.thrt Cox column so fast Ihal his nomination scomod an assured fact beyond .all doitbl. The coining development was nbvloiis to the McAdoo man. and the Kansiis chairman, fushlng to the form, secured recognition from Chair- man rtobiawn. Everybody who re- cognized Amidon knew! v.-hat he was up there for and the convention know Co.x was nominated several nilnutes before the motion was put. Tension Relaxes With the nomination the convention gavo an exhibition of relaxed enerpvv After dandng and hopping about fho. auditorium for five minutes or nlore, tho delegates clearer! out, leaving thfl big hall in darkness, a liltor of torn ribbons, flags and other abandoned paraphernalia ami a mess'of disarranged chairs.
