As tho delegates' seats begun to fill up, u standard bearer nmrehed up tho cen- tre aisle carrying a big white allk ban ncr, bearing a jjold.lono star, and tho Inscription "Grand old Toxaaf forty votes for Woodv-ow Wilson, .the peo- pl-s'e choice." As the banner .appear- ed, a cheer swept through 'the scat- tered crowds in !tho galleries. The delegates then on the floor did a lit- tlo cheering, Cardinal Gibbons, who was to make, the opening nrnyer, entered tbe ball j at 11.45, accompanied by Chairman j Robert Grain, of tho local conmiittei on arrangements, and preceded by i squad of policemen. Tho Cardinal !n his red robes, made a picturesque figure. He was cheered as he made his way to the stage. At this time the hall was. filling rapidly. There was u spreading mui mur of excitement, as word came thai Mr. Bryan had started from his ftote 'or' the convention. A short time later Connecticut en tered the hall, with a big bine banner inscribed; "Our choice for President Simon J. Baldwin." No applause greeted the Baldwin banner. The California -delegation -brought in a large Champ Clark banner. Scat- tered cheers greeted its1 appearance. Bryan Fooled Them Mr. Bryan surprised Ihe convention by slipping in 'without anybody seeing him. He bad left his hotel by the servants' elevator, avoiding tbe crowd awaiting him there, and made way quietly to" the hall. He entered by the stage .door, and bobbed up the rear of the stage by a back stair- way. The crowd of delegates on the floor below could not see him. Mr. Bryan shook hands cordially with Cardinal Gibbons. am very glad indeed .to meet he said, "and ani sorry not to have known you before.' The Nebraskan then slipped Into a seat well s-ecluded from the gaze of the crowd. The delegates at this time were hi-great confusion by not finding their seats, and apparently were not concerning themselves with Mr. Bryan anybody else At 12.08, Mr. ilackay arrived and climbed the states leading to the plat- form A few delegates who went to speak to Mr. Bryan found him somewhat nervous and irritable. He confirmed his intention -of. nominating Senator John W. Kern, of Indiaa, as a candi- date for temporary chairman in oppo- sition to Judge the choice of the National cooimmttee. Both sides at this time were claiming victory. Cardinal Gibbons Arrives At 12.10, Cardinal Gibbons took his place at 'the chairman's desk. Char- les R. Crisp, parliamentary man' of tbe House of Representatives, took a seat near Mr. Mack. He was to act as parliamentary adviser to the chair- man. Representative Robert M. Hen- ry, of Texas, chairman of th'e House Committee on Rules climbed the e'tal'rs to 'the stage, and conversed for a moment 'with-Mr. Bryan. Henry, who led the Bryan supporters in the House, was oxpected to lenoV his 'in- fluence to the Nebraskan in ihe con- vention. Up to this time Charles Al- ton B. Parker, Senator O'Gorman, and several other conservative leaders were still absent. v No Cops Here There sharp contrast in the convention arrangements and those at Chicago. A't the Repub- lican convention the hall fairly swarm ed with 'blue-coated policemen, a cor- don O'E them being always at the front of the stage. In the hall today to find a "copV was: like searching for the proverbial needle in the hay stack, Chainman Macfc dropped Ins gavel at 12.16, wi'th the auouncement: "The convention will be In. order. The SGT- geant-at-arms will.clear .the aisles" Confusion followed as the officials endeavored to get and spectators into their seats. A mo- ment after Chairman Mack began pounding for order, Jinlge Parker, ac- companied b> Tndge Morgan and J O'Brien, of New York, appeared, mr.1 ing his way up. the wrong aisle in search of the New No One Knew Him A cry of "Parker! camo fromflthe but the former candidate was not generally recog- nized.
