A hush fell over the crowd of 15,-
000 persons gathered in the Exposi-
tion building at Minneapolis, June 10,
1892. An important moment In the
republican national contention had
arrived. It was the hour for speeches
nominating candidates for president
of the United States. »
The sun streaming through the
broad skylight rested upon two fac-
tions. Delegations pledged to Pres-
Iden tBenjamln Harrison, who was a
candidate for renomlnation hoped
they were in the majority. The "ad-
ministration" forces had spent a
sleepless night holding their men In
But there was another Influence at
work that was slowly undermining
Harrison's chances. This was the
popular demand for James G. Blaine.
Only on the eve of the convention had
Blaine become a candidate. But he
touched off a political skyrocket that
startled the country. He resigned his
cabinet position and became an aot-
ive canddiate for the nomination
against Harrison. Blaine ( badges,
Blaine buttons and trl-colored crests
denoting the "Plumed Knight" were
everywhere. Sentiment was growing.
Could Harrison's workers hold the or
ganisation against it?
In the silence that pervaded the
vast assemblage came the voice of
William McKlnley, chairman of th*
convention, speaking slowly and dis-
"The regular order Is the presents
tlon of csndldates for president of the
It was decided the roll of states
should be called. "Alabama," shout-
ed the clerk. There was no response.
"Arkansas." Again silence. "Califor-
nia." All three passed without com-
ment. "Colorado" boomed the voice.
A man in the delegation of that state
arose. It was Senator Edward O. Wol-
cott. The crowd recognized and
"Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of
the convention," began Senator Wol-
cott, "the republicans of Colorado
sometimes differ with their brothers
of the esat as to what is wanted. This
time they are all agreed, for between
genuine republicans of the west and
genuine republicans of <he east the
one ma nfor all is Blaine!"
That was the magic word. A pro-
longed shout went up from the audi-
ence that rattled the glass in the sky-
light. It was taken up by a large
number of the delegates. It lasted
about sixty seconds, and when It was
subdued Senator Wolcott went on:
"The greatest American now living
suffered defeat years ago because the
party which he led and honored was
torn by discord, and fraud triumphed.
We must undo that wrong and pre-
sent to our uncrowned leader the
pledge of our unswerving devotion
and the assurance of a victory in No-
vember that will obliterate in his
heart and ours the memory of past
A fresh outburst of yells and cheers
again interrupted him. For Wolcott
was an effective orator and hl$
speech electrified his hearers.
"His name is engraved on all our
hearts in living letters that shall nev-
er fade," Wolcott resumed: "the
brave, the true-hearted and great.
We will follow where he leads. With
loving trust and faith that Provl-
denc wil long spare htm to a

When the speaker closed there was
spontaneous applause and cheers. It
lasted only a few minutes. A man of
lungs In a corner of the hall, who pos-
sessed a calliope howl, turned It loose.
It was answered by cries of "Blaine,
But It was at the close of the speech
of H. W. Eustls of Minneapolis, who
seconded the nomination of Blaine,
that the sensation of the day took
place. Thousands In th* audience
stood. They threw hats and umbrel-
las lntd the air. The cheers became
deafening. It was like th* continu-
ous roll of thousand* of drums. When
the volume of sound diminished some-
what. there came the even sonorous
"Blaine, Blaine. James G. Blaine!"
Thousands of feet stamped In
rhythm. The chant became lo*t again
in the rising, spelling cheers and
yells that were blended In a never-
ceasing blast. It was as If a giant,
human, deep-toned whistle had been
let loose. For endurance or Immensi-
ty the demonstration had never before
or since been squalled In any conven-
Finally, from sheer exhaustion, the
storm abated. Someone in the crowd
began hissing. That helped to end
the noise. But the hisses apparently
were mistaken for some of the Blaine
men for disapproval of their candi-
date. A man In a delegation directly
beneath the gallery saw his opportu-
nity. He reached upward a huge star
bearing a portrait of Blalrffe. A wo-
man in the gallery bent down to
eatch It Her hands touched the star,
drew It upward over the gallery rail-
ing. Jhen. leaning out toward the
seetfmig crowd below, she held the
portrait aloft and waved it from side
Where there had been a *emblance
of order on the floor and In the gal-
leries before now came riotous con-
fusion. The cheers and yells were re-
newde with increased intensity. At
the end of twenty-three minutes the
noise had dwindled until the band
could make a loud tune heard. Then
the roar became louder and the
chant. "Blaine, Blaine, James O-
niaine," was taken up again, accom-
panied by the stamping of thousands
of feet. _ _
McKlnley evidently thought the en-
thusiasm had gone far enough, so he
hammered with his gavel. But the
outburst was lnf*cUou*. The old
Blaine men began to be stirred up and
the cheering mounted to crescendo
again. When at last the *ound died
away so that a speakers voice could
be heard in the hall, the demon*tra-
tion had lasted thirty minutes.
That probably was the most re-
markable instance of spontaneous *n-
thuslssm for a popular Idol. But it
was also a requiem for Blaine. Since
1S78 republican national conventions
had cheered themselves hoarse for
Blaine. In 1S»« they had even nomi-
nated him. only to see htm defeated
at the polls. The affection which the
mention of hi* name had always in-
voked had culminated tn that thlrty-
