and Horace RIackwell acting for Judge
Opposed Straight Blanket.
The conference met at 4 o'clock, and was
In session over an hour. All of those pres
ent declared themselves In opposition to
the straight-blanket proposition. Mot of
them de!red nominations singly. Of the
exceptions were Judge Fox's friends jiMm
Woodson, who was not represented In the
conference, said afterwards that he was
for the "compromise" measure, no matter
what the others wished. As Woodson and
Fox control five congressional district gtlie
Fourth. Fifth. Thirteenth. Fourteenth ana
Sixteenth they are a power.
Harmony prevailed In the deliberations.
Though, of course, each of the candidates
is looking out for himself, the nine men,
possibly excluding Fox. not now on the
Supreme bench, realize that the lightning
canriot strike them unless they "hang" to
gether. They openly announce that though there
is no slate, they fear a combination of
three of the high men. and wish to pre
vent such a scheme coming to fruition.
None o'f them wishes to antagonize the
others. They do not wish to let any acri
mony enter Into the convention's work.
Settlement This 3Iornlnjr.
So general was the Idea among the con
ferees that Is was decided to postpone a set
tlement of the question until 3 o'clock tomorrow-
morning. All of the candidates
have been Invited to have representatives
present, and It Is tolerably certain that
each will accept. If an agreement Is
reache-d the Importance of fhe Committee
on Permanent Organization and Order of
Business will shrink from Its present pro
portions. Right after the conference was held a
number of Judges called at the Hughej
headquarters. Included among the num
ber were Judges Gates, W. W. Graves. Al
exander Graves, Woodson, Waller and Sil
ver. At the present time it may be safely said
that the straight-blanket method will be
defeated. Some of the friends of Judge
Gates of Kansas City say that, unless nomi
nations are made singly, they will fight
the matter out on the floor of the conven
tion. They claim that Frank P. Walsh will break
loose unless both the "blanket" and the
"compromise" method are beaten. Walsh
Is not expected in until morning.

One of the most remarkable, and at the

Harry Hawes opened headquarters' in the

delegates from St, Louis In keeping to

secretary. Ilruce Starke. In speaking of
the convention Mr. Hawcs said he had
never before witneed such a harmonious
gathering where to manv contacting Inter
ests were concerned.
"The delegates are a fine b3dy of men."
said Mr. Hawes. "and we are going to have
the best convention ever held In Missouri."
Political clubs with their fife and drum
force are conspicuous by their absence,
neither the Jefferson Club of St, Louis.
Jackson Club of Kansas City nor the
Monroe Club of St, Joeph is present. This
Is explained by the fact that it I a dig
nified Judicial gathering and also because
the clubs will be in full blare at the St.
Excise Commissioner Selhcrt. who Is man
aging Judge Fox's campaign. Is one of the
most confident men at the cosventlon. He
declares that If the present Indications con
tinue undisturbed, his candidate will be one
of the nominees of the Democratic rarty
for Stato Supremo Judge. "Everythinj'
seems to be In our favor." said Mr. S-Ibert.
"Look where you may and tall: to whom
von please, you can see and hear nothing
but evidence of Judge Fox's popularity. If

Mr. Seibert did not care to discuss the.
chances of the other can lidates.
"I don't care to be rlaced on record as
predicting ray own success," said Judge
Valliant. "but yeu might glance about and
state your own opinion. I'll stand by what
