Chairman Strauss looked with sur- prise on the man who with .laming bandana sVatched around his neck ad his coat blazing, with badges tossed his rough-rider hat on the floor and demanded the right to make a nom- ination. "Whom do you wish to asked Chairman but McGee gave only a meaningless shake ot'his iiand while the delegates irritated at what they, .deemed only an interrup- tion at a moment when the .ronvcn- tioo was about to lock arms on a vote for Prcndcrgast and Hotchkiss cried, "put him but McGec stuck to his purpose and vigorously insisted on speaking.

McGee paused but a moment nnd then cried I nominate the illustrious lonorable Oscar S. Strauss." The delegates seemed stunned .hen a few of them cheered. Strauss gave an amused laugh as Suspender Jack" bowed before him. McGee kept on with his speech and the first few faint cheers from the half dozen or more delegates gradunl- y grew into a pandemonium of sound .hat 'swept the convention h.all from oae end tn the other. Standards were wrenched irorr? their supports and delegates, yelling and cheering for Chairman Strauss paraded through ;he aisles. All was confusion in the hall. Chair- man Strauss at first shook his head recutiiigiy at the 151 owing fit: turned to his friends and remark- ed, "This must not be, I cannot ac- cept." State Chairman Hotchkiss left iiis seat among the delegates and rushed to the platforr.i. Placing his hands on Mr. Strauss' shoulders, he sai-i "Von accept you must, accept. All the delegates are for. you." Meanwhile there was a press of delegates to the platform to urge .Mr. Strauss to make the decision. Then Mr. Hotchkiss burst from the group that surrounded Mr. Strauss and held up before the crush of excited dele- gates in the aisles a sheet of ycllmv paper on which was written, "He accents." whereupon the delegates spectators passed back the word ni Mr. Strauss' acceptance and another demonstration followed.
