Ripley. The convention will be culled
lo orcer at 1 o'clock by F. J. Wood,
chairman of the Congressional Execu

knotty questions, no'ably tbeCrockott

will bring in large a iditions to the al

Speculation is nf 3 as to the lesnlt,
each candidate's friends claiming the

not last longer than Thursday night.
