Said Senator Clarke of Kansas City this
evening: "We have until midnight to get
together. The caucus which we held this
afternoon adjourned until 9 o'clock to-morrow
morning, when a final effort will be
made to unite en one man. It will then be
too late to do anything. The fellows in

acted as a unit before midnight, we could
not break the slate."
Another piece of politics, showing the Re

made this afternoon to beat Judge James

Court of Appeals nomination. Apparently
ha has been unopposed until this afternoon,
when friends of N. A. Mozely of Bloom

A meeting of the State Central Committee
was held this evening. There was "nothing
doing" for Kerens. Aklns is supposed to
have about thirty of the forty-two mem
bers. Kerens attended tho session, but that
was the only way In which ho was felt.
The State chairman had his programme ar
ranged, and carried it through In quick or

succeed Colonel D. 1. Dyer, as predicted in
Aklns was empowered to name five mem
bers of an Executive Committee. Gustavus
A. FInkelnburg of St. Louis was made vice
chairman at Akins's request. In order to
rub salt on the National Committeeman he
was made a member of the Finance Com
mittee, the other members being Aklns and
his Executive Committee. It will now be
up to the National Committeeman to "pro

there can be no objection to tho proposed
appointment. Charley Reeves of Humans

mentioned as possible appointees for as

Shrlner will serve for glory, while his as
sistant will get the salary.

Ben F. Rusell was named as temporary

committee. Mr. Russell remarked that
"when any one stepped on a monkey's tall
he can expect to be bitten." referring to the
National Committeeman's strenuous efforts
to tie the hands of Aklns.
Russell was mentioned for chairman of
the Jefferson City Convention, but Con
gressman Bartholdt was led to the slaugh
ter instead. Simeon Harris of St. Louis,
secretary of the Twenty-second Ward Re
publican League Club, will bo temporary
secretary of the convention. It Is probable
that the temporary organization will bo
made permanent. Another slap which was
taken at the Kerens faction by Aklns was
the fixing of the temporary roll of the co.i

It will be In accordance Tilth tho report
of the Credentials Committee of Jefferson
City convention. As full contesting dele
gations will be on hand from six St, Louis
words, there may be a wunn time to-morrow.
FIvo of the State Committeemen
voted against the Aklns programme. They
were: Dickey of Kansas City, ICalbreld,
Starkloff. Lloyd and Shawacker of St. 1-ouls.
If Aklns has full control of tho convention
there may be no Credentials Committee.

Delegates are goza-plng about an Invita
tion which has been extended to United
States Senator Burton of Kansas to speak
here to-morrow. In view of his break with
the President, he is considered something
oft a "hot brick" in political. circles. State
Chairman Aklns admitted that while In
Washington he had asked Burton to "drop
around" to Joplin.
It Is said that Burton will not be re
quested to derend his reciprocity record.
About one-half of the delegates are in the
city to night. The Reception Committee of
Joplin has been more than hospitabl: in
making the visitors have a pleasant time.

arc being brought Into requisition, owing
to the large number of 'lotcls. Tho citizens
aro proud of the honor which has been ex

here, nnd arc leaving nothing undone to

Several district caucuses will be held to
morrow morning. The Fifth District prom
ises the most fun.

whether he has any business to to his

Kansas City could hurt Hlgbce's chances,
even though he has seventy-six delegates
fixed for trading purposes.
The convenUon probably w'll be called to
order about 11 o'clock. Delegates hope to
get away by dark If the work can be fin
ished by that time. The convention will
be held In a large tent. The nominations
probably will be made one at a time, owing
to the small number of active candidates.
Said a c!o-e friend of Stato Chairman
Aklns at midnight:
"Lamm. Hlgbee and Whybark can't be
beaten. Their steering committees have
agreed together and will nominate the
three men. It took neat trading, but the
deal has been made."
Lamm represents the southwest. Hlgbee

RHODES CLAY'S BODY
Coroner's Post-Mortem Examina
tion at the Grave Side Re
vealed a Third Wound.
Mexico. Mo.. July It A secret post
mortem examination of tho body of Rhodes
Clay was held at tho graveside In the ceme
tery here at midnight Saturday. In tho
darkness the earth was once more shoveled
away, tho casket reopened and the body
examined to determine whether a pistol
bullet had entered the back.
The embalmers of the body remembered
to havo seen an abrasion on one of the
musclc3 of the back, below the shouUer
blade. This was unaccounted for In tho
medical testimony at the Coroner's inquest
Saturday afternoon, and representatives of
the Clay family demanded that the matter
bo InvesUgated. Five physicians, besides
Coroner Bridgeford. were present. They
were C T. A'arnon, J. E. Hutton. W. AV.
MacFarlane. W. E. Crawford and J. R.
Crawrord. In attendance were also Colonel
Green Clay, father of the dead man, and
R. D. Rogers, legal adviser to the Coroner.
A Third Wound Discovered.
A third wound two only had been re
cordedwas located. Doctor MacFarlane. on
the stand nt the Inquest this morning, said
of this third wound:
"It was superficial and on the right side
of the back below the shoulder. The wound
was as wide as my finger and oval-shaped
at the ends. I think it a gunshot wound,
but could not tell from which direction the
shot was fired."
George Robertson, the attorney who will
have charge of tho defense, states that the
existence of such a wound Is Immaterial.
"It Is a well-known fact that throughout
the conflict between the men." said he.
"their positions were rot such that Barnes
could have shot Clay from behind. Such
a wound could easily have been Inflicted it
the ball had grazed Clay as he was stand
ing sldewlse. yet with his face toward
Attorney Orear. one of the lawyers con
nected with tho prosecution, contends that
the wound has a bearing on the case. He
claims that the evidence will show such an
injury could have been inflicted only by
thc fjrst shots fired by Barnes and while
Clay was looking away from him.
Inquest Is Concluded.
Tho inquest was ended to-day with the
expected verdict to tho effect that death
was due to pistol shots fired by Clarcnco
Barnes. The most Important testimony
was given by A. J. AVInscott, a local In
surance man. He raw the fight from Its
beginning and said Barnes fired the first
shot. He said also that from tho tlmo
the men came Into collision In the Post
Office. Barnes seemed to b- backing away,
nnd that when in the street Just outside
the Post Office Barnes motioned with his
hand as If to tell Clay to go away.
