Three More Ballots Taken
Without Result in Re
Manifest -Falling Off in the Enthu
siasm, But Delegates Stand
by Their Friends.
SPRINGFIELD, HI., , 'May 31. The
Republican State convention, af
ter a session layting an hour and
one-half,, and after taking three
ballots for Governor, adjourned until 10
o'clock tomorrow morning, without hav
ing broken the deadlock. The result of
the ballots follows:
Fifty-ninth ballot: Yates, 4S7; Low
den. 396: Deneen, SS3V4; Hamlin, 115;
Warner, 41; Sherman. 50; Pierce, 2S.
On the sIxtleth ballot the changes
were slight. The ballot resulted: Yates,
1S4; Lowdcn. 39S!; Deneen. 383'; Ham
lin, 113: Warner, 12: Sherman, 53;
The sixty-first ballot resulted: Tates,
iSl; Louden. 39S; Deneen, 3$4; Ham
lin. 116; Warner, 40; Sherman, 51;
Enthusiasm on "Wane.
The convention, after an eleven days'
recess, reconvened at 2:13 this after
noon. There was a manifest falling off,
of enthusiasm. Gov. Yates was cheered
as he entered a few minutes before the
convention was called to order, but the
entry of the other candidates was un
observed; Chairman Cannon . opened the pro
ccedlngHltvjfrhiiAilnr read' -the rulc.iof
the' JIouse7fV:lep?'eiittlve3, which,
among other things, prohibits smoking
"upon the floor of the house." "Gen
tlemen." said Mr. Cannon, "you have
adopted that, among other rules. The
chair cannot enforce that rule without
the co-operation of the delegates, and
the chair desires to know what the will
of the convention Is." Then he put to
a vote the question of enforcing the
"no smoking" rule, "literally every
where In the hall."
Smoking Must Stop.
The anlrmative vote was practically
unanimous and the chairman then gave
peremptory instructions to the assist
ant sergeants-at-arms and the police to
see that all smoking in the hall was
prevented, delegates who do not cease
when requested to be reported to the
chair for the action of the convention,
and persons not delegates, who persist
ently violate the rule, lo be ejected from
"How about chewing?" Inquired a
delegate, amid laughter. Chairman
Cannon, who, while refraining from
smoking, had been chewing tobacco
pretty freely during the monotonous
deadlock, answered gravely: "The reso
lution is silent on chewing."
At 3:43 the convention took a recess
until 10 o'clock tomorrow morning.
Lowden Will Attempt Stampede.
At a late hour tonight there is no
substantial prospect that the deadlock
will end tomorrow. It is reported that
Lowden will make another attempt to
morrow to break Into tho Yates forces.
It Is said that he expects to get 100
Yates votes, thirty from Hamlin, fifty
from Sherman and enough scattering
votes to swell his total to COO, hoping'
that this will be sufficient to loosen up
Deneen delegates In Cook county to
nominate Lowden. The Yates man
agers admit that at some stage of the
balloting Kane. Will and Dekalb coun
ties may go to Lowden, as they did
when a stampede was attempted two
weeks ago; but this would mean only
sixty-two votes, and that is near the
limit of the number the Yates people
will concede as likely to go to Lowden
from their camp.
There seems small probability that
either Hamlin or Sherman will now
shift their votes until it appears rea
sonably certain that by so' doing they
will be able to break tho deadlock. All
of (he candidates held their forces lo- .
gether today and It appears today that
tomorrow's ballots will show no materi
So far as known there are no confer
ences In progress tonight of an import
ant nature. At 10 o'clock Governor
Yates, who has been passing the even
ing quietly with friends in an up
stairs room in the Leluud hotel, an
nounced that he was going home to re
tire for the night. "1 can dlsqover abso
lutely no change In the situation." was
his parting comment. The Yates en
ernj committee, consisting of a man
fjom ouch committee, held a meeting
late this afternoon and Mere addrefsed
by the Governor, who said the failure
of the opposition to break his forces to
day had, In view of all that .had been
predicted, amounted to a substantial
victory. Several atand-pal speeches
were made. .

DENVER. May 31. A lengthy discus

stituted practically the entire work of tho

from outside .labor organizations were

Emma F. Langdon, whoso recent publi
