There were seventeen candidates for
the judicial nominations, and it took
Just three hours and twenty minutes
to select a half dozen of the number.
In addition, speeches placing these us
pirants before the convention occupied
over two hours. 'Mr. Meyers, who was
nominated by William M. Singerly. of
Philadelphia, the late Democratic
frulittrnrt 1 nrlsl candidate, was chosen by
acclamation. On the first ballot for
the Judgeship nominations Yerkes,
Moorehead. .Smith, Noyes and Hecmei
were chosen, each receiving more than
the necessary 227 votes.
After considerable trouble, another
ballot was taken to nominate a sixth
candidate, and it resulted: Magee 170,
Bower 14-', all of the other candidates,
wjth the exception of Rose, announcing
their withdrawal. As many of the
delegates left the hall after the an
nouncement or the first ballot the
chairman refusing to accept the proxies
of absent members, the vote of neither
Magee nor Bower reached a majority
of the convention (227). Chairman
Oarman, however, recognized the c;ko-
tion of .Magee, and declared mm to oa i
the stxt'h nominee.
The Philadelphia Contest.
The full list of convention delegates
was 454, but there being a contest in
the first district of Philadelphia tjie
committee on credentials seated only
four of the five delegates from that dis
trict, making the total number of dele
gate In attendance 4f3.
Otherwise the vote necesary to a
choice would have been 228. The con
vention assembled at 11.10 a. m, and
adjourned, sine die, at 8.22 p. m., the
only Intermission being a recess from
12.05 o'clock until 1.50 o'clock.
In order to expedite matters, It was
arranged to call the convention to or
der at 10 o'clock this morning, Instead
of 11 o'clock, the hour originally agreed
upon. The change, nowever, was not
generally known among the delegates
and at the furmer Ihour there were but
few persons In the opf-ru house. The
auditorium was prettily decorated with
flags and 'bunting, and In the gallery.

brass band, whleih did Its hare of toot

Chairman Robert . Wright, of Allen-

An Inciting KplsoJc.
One of the most exciting scenes of
t'he convention occurred while Mr. Ma
loney, of Philadelphia, was seconding
the nomination of judge McCarthy.
Moloney, who is allied with the Penn
sylvania Democracy wing of the party,
declared that he preferred fhe Dem
ocracy of Mr. Sellers' to that of Mr.
Singerly, the latter whom he charac
terized as the "wtirst beaten man In
Philadelphia." , Tihla reflection upon
Mr. Slngerly's defeat for governor by
General Hastings last 'November was
loudly Jeered, while cheers were freely
given for iMr. Hlngerly. There were re
peated calls foT iMalpney to "sit down
and "put him out."'1. A regular pande
monium prevailed and. when quiet was
partially restored the chairman notified
Mr. .Muloney to ombt .personalities from
Maloney continued, and when he
again referred to Slngerly by saying
that the Philadelphia Record (Mr.
Slngerly's paper) and the Philadelphia
Times (Democrat) had opposed Robert
S. Pattlson when the latter ran for
register of wills on the Democratic
ticket In Philadelphia and had favored
the Quay candidate, Mr. -Slngerly arose
from his seat, it being but a few rows
ahead of that occupied by Maloney, and
said: "That Is false." Thla started
another sensational scene, but which
Mr. Slngerly partially allayed by ask
Ing that the gentleman (..Maloney) be
allowed to proceed. Maloney s speech
was brier after tnis episode.
After considerable wrangling It was
decided that delegates be allowed to
vote for Superior Judge nominees,
either Individually or through the
chairmen of delegations. The taking
of the vote began at 4.58 o'clock, and
the first ballot was concluded at S.3U,

DEFENDER THE WINNER
Mr. Iselin's Protest Is Sustained by
the Yacht Committee.
NO NEED OP ANOTHER TKIAL
The Valkyrie Is Made to Pay the Penalty
of Defeat for Violation of the
Rules Governing Yachting-Next
New Tork. Sept. 11. The regatta
committee of the New York Yacht club
rendered a decision late this afternoon
sustaining: Mr. lselln'n protest against
Valkyrie, and awarding yesterday's
race to Defender. This result was
reached after deliberations and con
ferences lasting practically all day.
As the occurrence was directly under
the eyes of t'he committee, and was
also witnessed by. thousands of spec
tators, there was only one decision pos
sible. Every one conversant with the
tailing of yachts and rules of the road
at sea agreed that the "British yacht
was at fault. Lord Dunraven and his
friends, however. held that his boat
was crowded by Defender, and that the
accident was unavoidable. The com
mittee gave each' side ample oppor
tunity to state their case, and took the
testimony of the captains of each
yacht and of others who were on board.
David Henderson, who nailed on the
Defender as the representative of Lord
Dunraven, and J. It. Rusk, who repre
sented the iNew York Yacht club on
Valkyrie, each reported on the occur
rence. All the Interested -parties were
at the yacht club house until late in the
afternoon. With Lord Dunraven were
Hear Commodore Arthur Glennle, of
the Royal Clyde Yacht club; Sallmaker
Katsey, H. Maltland Kersey, Captains
Cranfleld and Sycamore. In Mr. Ise
lin's party were Woodbury Kane, Mr,
Thome and Herbert C. Leeds. It was
4.30 p. in. when the decision was an
nounced. It was In the form of a re
ply to Mr. Iscllii's protest, and reads as
We beg to acknowledge the receipt of
your letter of yesterday, protesting Val
kyrie. We have given the matter our
careful consideration snd believe that the
foul occurred through the miscalculation
of the distance lietween the two yachts at
a critical moment. From our observa
tion, sustained by that of others, who
were In good position to see. we llnd that
the Valkyrie, In contravention of section
2 of racing rule IS, bore down upon the
Defender and fouled her by the swing of
her main boom when hiltllng to straighten
her course. We also consider that De
fender allowed Valkyrie sufllc'.ent room
te windward to pass clear of committee
boat. Your protest is, therefore, sus
tained. Rules of the Race.
The racing rule referred to Is the fol
lowing: A yacht shall not bear away out of her
course so nx to hinder another yacht ill
passing to leeward.
Section 2 of the same rule says:
A yacht free shall keep clear of one
The rule covering disqualifications:
If a yacht In consequence of her neglect
of any of these rules shall foul another
yacht or compel another yacht to foul any
yaMit, mark or obsrruotiun,-1 or to run
aground, she shall be disqualified and
shall pay all damages.
As stated In these dispatches yes
terday, the Defender gave the Val
kyrie plenty of room t cross tihe line,
and R was only 'by the Valkyrie's bear
ing away to prevent crossing before
gun fire that caused the fouling. The
Valkyrie was to windward and close
to the commtttee boat end of the line,
t'he was running freer than Defender
and was leading slightly. She was
lapping the committee boat and going
toward the line at a .pace that would
have carried her over before the plgnal.
To avoid this she bore away to leeward
and eased out on her nlieets In order
to spill the wind and check her head
way. The dhange, of course, brought
her within biscuit toss of the American
boat. The latter held her course. The
British skipper, to avoid a collision,
W'hieh seemed Inevitable, luffed up and
Valkyrie's boom did the damage to De
fender. ' He violated tine rules by bear
ing away, and by failing to keep clear
of the Defender, a yacht close hauled.
Such Is the verdict of the committee,
and als-o of all competent Judges on the
Captain Cranfleld, of the Valkyrie,
holds that the fault lay with Captain
Haff, of the Defender, and Insists that
he could sail no closer to the end of the
line without fouling the committee

Waterloo. Iowa. Sept. 11. 'Rev. Q. E.
Scott, pastor of the First Methodist
Episcopal church In this city, preached
a sermon agalnat the - wearing of
bloomers last night. He took as his
text that part of ttte law of Moses
which declares that the woman who
weartth that which pertalntth to a
man Is an abomination to the Lord.
This law, -he thought, was given be
cause ilod could look down the cen
turies and see the women of today
dressed in men's clothes, with trousers
scant of cloth and tied with a string,
bowling along on a wheel, an abom
ination to Cod, and to the infinite dis
gust of man. The evil of bloomers, he
said, was that they tended to break
down the outward distinction between
woman and man.
They caused women to lose their
modesty and compelled men to lose
their respect for women. He thought
the women who persisted in wearing
male attire were those who did not
hope to marry, or married, acted as
though their husbands realized they
had make a mistake on their wedding
