for an adjonrnment nntll - p. m. That
started tho fireworks.
BOMB rUBVlD OUATOUY
M. Foley, of Jeffi rson township, op
posed the motion with great earnest
ness, 'ilie yeas and nays were called
and Chairman MeOormack decided
that tbe convention wanted to adjonra.
Then tbe Bnrke men howled fore dl
vision whleh they didn't gt. One
Borkeite mounted a clmr In the mid
dle of the hall and deolnrod in ear
splitting tones: "It's not according to
parliamentary rales!" No one paid
any attention to him or teemed to care
whether it was parliamentary or nor.
Mr. Dnrke was sawing the air clos
to the chairman's platform and d
manding a square deal while cor
pulent Mr. Peeley, divested of his coat
and with iweat streaming from his
chubby fsen, exhorted the chairman to
stand bv his decision that the convon-
ventfon had expressed n wisii to ad
journ. Mr. McCormick did stand bj
his decision and after tho shunters bad
exhausted ihemselves, the obiarmai
i-iniied, propelled a stream of tobacc
juice in the direction ol Delegate Ya!
ton's shoe and went to dinner.
The Bnrke delegates were hot. To;
knew that If th convention leleoted
candid. ite before it adjourned the Hon
orable M. T. wonld be the man. In an
adjonrnment they saw a foal conspir
acy to wretttbe nomination from him
They were fearful of the conteqnences,
as well they mi.'ht.
WORKING ON THR DBLBQATR&
Immediately nfter adjonrnment Mr.
Peeler want to Gavin's hottl in bis
shirt sleeveH and went ti work. Del
I egntes were tnlke l to, and in the par-
lor of the hotel n conference was held
between Mr, reeiey and mus ,i iuc
AndreW, tipother Archbald oandidats
frr the nomination. Candidate Cum -mings'
friends were also Interviewed
Ar a result of all this work it wih in
portd before the convention recon
vened that a combination bad been af
fected that wonld surely bent Bnrke
The candidates were all to allow their
names to go before the convention for
the first ballot. It wns believed thai
tho vote would h then so plit up that
no choice wonld result. On second
ballot them wonld be soni" one dropped
and then tin opposition to Bnrke was
to focus on Feeley.
The plan failed beoanse Mr. Bnrke,
foreseeing what woiil l recur, did seme

nomination on tbe first ballot Hes-
cured just that number and they went
up to the scratch and voted for him

THE CONVENTION RE ASSEMBLES.
At 2 10 p. m. Chairman McCormsck
mounted the platform to call the after
noon session to order. Many of the
delegates were In the hall and others
were out on tho sidwnlk. MoCor
mack thrust his head through a win
dow and rent tbe air with n sharp,
shrill whistle; thereupon the tnnly
delegates Hooked into the room. The
committeo on contested seats reported
in favor of seating Joseph Alexander
from the secind diRtrict of Pell town
ship. His seat was contested by Mich
The yenH and nays wore called on a
motion to adopt the report and Mr.
McCormack deeided that it was adopt
ed, although there wis no percopfible
differeneo between tho volumes of
sound that greeted the call for the
yeas and nays. A division wan called
for whan Thomas Walton, of Archbald.
who was sitting in the front row with
his coat ofT and his shirt open nt the
throat, jumped to hiR feet.
"I dispute tho right of the gentle
man to a division," ho said. "Wheni
comitteo is appointed its decision
shonld bo final.''
'Gentlemen, take your peats," firmly
spoke tbo chairman and there the mnl
ter ended. There was no division on
that question. Alexander was soated
and voted for Mr. Foeloy.
On the question of making tho tem
porary organization p im inent thor
Wat more friction. Although no op
-I.ntr-st U. S. Gov't Report
posing candidates were named many
delegates voted against continuing the
temporary organization in power, and
when Mr. MoCormaok declared him
self and his associates elected there
whs a howl. Another division was
akd for, but tbe chairman decided
i hat it could not be allowed Unless on
position candidates were named. H
made a speeob saying lie was ''no man's
man," bad no interest to serve and
was desirous only of being Impartial!
U. W. Cooney, Orator Foley and M
j J Larkin were nominated for chair
man, nut nil decline:! and tho tempo
rary organisation stood for want of
opposition, although several of the del
gates deolared that Chairman MoCor
maok had 1 n carrying things with
too high a hand. Mr McCormsok
treated th"pn nup'rsioiiH with silent
contempt and called for nominations
for legislature John McCalv. of Car
bondale, nominated M. T. Bnrke, of
Carbondale; P. H. McGeever. of Fell
township, nominated Miles J. McAn
drew, of Archbald; Thomas J. Ntalon,
of Olyphant, named J, B Cnmrnlngs,
of tho same plaos, anil M, J. Larkin, of
Carbondale, placed in nomination
.lames J. Feeley, of Archbald.
NO MAN R MAN SPEAKS
When the nominations were made
Chairman McCornsok, whoa few min
utes before had proudly declared that
he was "no man's man," claimed the
attention of tho convention and with
out going through the form kitty of va
cating the chair madi an eloquent
Speech seconding the nomination of
Mr. Cumminge, l was a most un

A voto was then taken and resulted
as follows Bnrke, 27; Poeley 11;

gave Mr linrko a majority of one over
his opponents. Tho opposition Was
dumbfounded, surprised and crushed
while Burkitos rent tho air with their
cheers. Xbe nomination was then
nude by acclamation and the dele
gates began to crowd out of the lull
but were cnllnd back to listen to a
speech by Mr. Hnrko Ho thanked the
