Chairman Williams was given a
round of applause when he appeared.
He had made allowanoe for the
weather by discarding his waistcoat,
but offset this a trifle by pinning two
extra-sized badges on the outside of
his coat. He carried a large oigar be

chewed nervously. The strain of his

At 10:15, as soon as he had pro
duced quiet in the hall by the use of
his gavel, he introduced Archbishop
John J. Glendon of St. Louis, who
delivered the invocation.
The prayer was brief, and, as the
prelate resumed his seat, a murmur of
approval ran thru the convention,
which in a few seconds deepened into
a roar of applause.
Immediately after the invocation,
Chairman Williams called for the re

Mr. South defended the rights of the
Philippine delegation, but finally with

Arguing for the adoption of the re
port, Mr. Grady said the national com
mittee had decided to include Porto
Rico in the call of the convention.
The committee had to consider the
question as to whether these delegates
had the right to vote: The supreme
court of the United States had decided
that Porto Rico was a part of the ter
ritory of the United States. The same
court had decided that the Philippines
was not a part of the United States.
The committee had followed the court
and had given Porto Rico votes and

"The chair recognizes the gentleman

spoke briefly and received a ripple of
applause as he finished. Chairman
Williams endeavored to state that the

but was interrupted by cries of
"When the angel Gabriel shall
stand on the highest mount of the
world," said the chairman, "and with
a megaphone announce the crash of

to interrupt him by orying 'louder.'

The secretary then announced that
the permanent organization commit

and desired a conference of tha com

Because of the wretched acoustics
of the hall, Chairman Williams re

then recognized William F. Sheehan
of New York, who moved that a re

The convention was instantly in an
uproar of confusion as the delegates
and visitors rose to leave. The motion
to take a recess was agreed to by a

tempt to Nominate on First
St. Louis, July 7.The Parker
headquarters lieutenants of David B.
Hill worked quietly this morning and
with confidence that bespoke a knowl
edge of sure victory. Senator Hill re
iterated his statement that he was
making no attempt to nominate Judge
Parker on the first ballot.
It was sufficient to know, he said,
that he could be easily nominated
without creating friction by shutting
out favorite sons. All the candidates
should be presented to the convention
and voted for in the first ballot, he
argued, and that will probably be the
The fact that New Jersey this morn

Parker, however, made it apparent
that Mr. Hill's program may be shat

tion with apparently less than a third
of the convention on the first ballot.
At Tammany headquarters, Mr.
Murphy jai that he still believed Mr.
Parker could not be nominated. It
was said that the opposition had
agreed to concentrate on McClellan of
New York. Mr. Murphy said: "I can
not say as to that, but I am in the
same frame of mind as yesterday and
the days previous as to the candidacy
of Judge Parker."
It was said about the lobbies that a
concentration on McClellan was being
suggested, but that only Missouri and

"If John Lind insists on being
elected as a delegate to St. Louis, in
spite of the united opposition of the
delegation from Hennepin county,
he'll be killed politically at home," is
the threat Frank Larrabee voiced for
the Hennepin delegation at the state
democratic convention in Duluth. The
first of the "killing" is the treatment
being accorded the former leader of
Minnesota democracy at the St. Louis
convention, where in the distribution
of official plums he has gone hungry.
And if Jonn Lind doesn't keep his
promise to now retire from public
office, Hearst democracy is ready to
give him a further dose. He. is being
pressed hard by leading democrats of.
the state to become a gubernatorial
candidate, the argument being made
that this is the ideal time for the
election of a democratic governor
again because of the growing feeling
in the republican party against R. C.
Dunn, the republican nominee.
But if Lind should consent, the
Hearst men are prepared thru the or
ganization which they have in every
ward of the city, to make further
trouble for the fifth district congress
man to bend every effort'to make the
vote at the polls look like 30 cents.
Lind is aware of the strong opposi
tion to him in his own bailiwick, and
those who know him say that for this
reason he is altogether too wise to
jpermlt any pressure or any course of
reasoning to beguile him into again
becoming democracy's gubernatorial
Incidentally, also, Lind's action in
accepting a delegateship, even tho it
accentuated the party discord, has
caused him to lose ground with tine
anti-Hearst faction. They suspect him
of selfishness, and while not partic
ularly bitter, they do not feel under
obligations to get out and work for
him should he desire it.

The notaries have been compelled
to sign an agreement not to charge
over 25 cents for the making and

This action, taken by the government
officials, will prevent much trouble.
So strong is the feeling against over

found guilty of the practice will be
allowed to serve further. The action
of Special Agent Hunt of the interior
department in requiring the city
council to demand regular rates at
hotels, lodging and eating houses is
having a salutary effect. Many pri
vate homes are open to the visitors
at very reasonable rates.
Many seem to be under the impres
sion that the Indians have the be^t
land on the reservation. This is a
mistake. The Indian, when he chooses
an allotment, looks for two things
wood without hauling and water with
out digging. The claims that the In
dians have taken are for the most
part along the creeks, on the foothills
and buttes, where springs are plenty
and wood is thick. The level, open
land, with the rich, black soil, has
no attractions for them. One farm
on the level is worthy two on the
sidehill, and these farms are open to
the public. Of the 2,600 claims to be
given away, 2,000 will make No. 1
farms under the hand of the enter

Kaw River Overruns Armourdale,
Threatening to Repeat Last
Kansas City, July 7.One-half of
Armourdale, the packinghouse town,
is under water from the overflow of
the ICaw river. The water is still
rising at a rapid rate and conditions
approaching the great flood of 1903
are feared. The water is higher than
at any time since then. The lowlands
of Argentine and Rosedale, other sub
urbs, are also flooded and hundreds of
laboring people have left their homes.
West of Kansas City the Kaw is
bank-full and is doing great damage
at North Topeka, Lawrence and other
points. Its tributaries are rising. Rain
has fallen almost incessantly in this
part of the southwest for five days:
and for a month past heavy rains have
fallen intermittently. All last night
rain fell steadily here and in many
parts of Kansas, and today continued.
The first break in the Kaw came at
Armourdale at midnight, when water
began running thru a large dyke built
across a new channel made by the
flood last year. Families in the low
lands began to move. Later, leaks
appeared at three other places toward
higher ground, and morning found the
water still rising and spreading over
the town until one-half of the place
was under from one to five feet of
water. Today the water has reached
the Iiivestock Exchange and driven the
occupants from the basement floor.
Forecaster O'Connor predicts that the
Kaw will continue rising for another
twenty-four hours, but says that there
will hardly be a repetition of last"
