Assurance As to Tellers Who Will Count Votes

WILSON WILL GIVE WELCOMING ADDRESS
TO DELEGATES TOMORROW AFTERNOON
A bombshell was exploded in D. A. R. circles today
when formal demand was made upon Mrs. Matthew T.
Scott, president general, by representatives of Mrs. William
dimming Story that certain concessions be granted in the
matter of tellers for the ensuing election. The demand
was characterized in the headquarters of Mrs. Scott and
Mrs. John Miller Horton as outrageous and as implying in
tended dishonesty in the conduct of the election.
The demand was made upon Mrs. Scott by Willard K.
Augsbury, of New York, husband of the New York State
regent, who is one of Mrs. Story's chief lieutenants.

Row Over Credentials.
Definite charges were made by friends
of Mrs. Story today that the credentials
committee has been unfair. It Is al
leged that the credentials committee
attempted In some cases to poll the
delegates as they registered yesterday,
and that in some Instances two badges
were given to a single delegate known
to be favorable to Mrs. Horton.
In the Scott headquarters and by
members of the credentials committee,
this charge was hotly aenled. Relative
to the demand made for tellers, this
statement was issued by friend:oi Mrs.
"The demand is simply an attempt
to befog the Issue and to confuse dele
gates. No explicit charge of intended
dishonesty is made and none will oe,
for they dare not. By casting the im
plication, however. It Is hoped that
delegates, will be Influenced. It was
with the ldeae of hinting at court pro
ceedings that a lawyer was brought
No Dishonesty Charge.
"No charge has ever arisen that D.
A. R. elections in the past have not
been conducted honestly and there is
no possible reason for suggesting thai
this election will not be fair except
that it is hoped to gain votes by this
innuendo and suggested slander."
The friendB of Mrs. stu backed up
their move by issuing a statement re
lfttive to the conduct of thr credentials
committee charging unrairnfss ana ille
gitimate operation.. Den.and is made
also for elimination of campaigning in
tne polling rooms. 1
Mrs. Story's Matement.
In respect to thir charges the state
ment issued for Mrs. Storj says:
"Representation on the credentials
committee will be asked by the friends
of Mrs. Story and of Mrs. Bryan.
"This is regarded as Important by the
conservative forces, as the administra
tion committee is charged with having
attempted to poll the delegates as they
registered, and in some Instances have
given out two badges to delegates
knowa to be favorable to Mrs. Horton
The construction given the Issuance of
an additional badge is that it is Invita
tion to the packing of the convention.
"A definite opening and closing time
for the polls, the prohibition of cam
paigning In the voting room during the
casting of votes, and a number of
other demands looking to the elimina
tion of charges of unfair treatment and
the conduct of the election in an orderly
manner are also being urged by the

Judge George W. Kelley, probate

that Judge Kelley Is on a still hunt for

Judge Kelley would like to be Informed.
Rear Admiral Blue, chief of naviga
tion, to whom it was thought Judge
Kelley might appeal for information as
to Rear Admiral Eaton's early life.
stated this afternoon that he had not
seen the Judge, nor did he know any
thing of his whereabouts.
Rear Admiral Blue says that the Navy
Department records will not reveal any
skeletons In the Eaton family closet.
but it Is possible that other naval offi
cers may be able to give Judge Kelley
some clues as to the dead officer's life
These matters have a bearing only aa

after his retirement from the navy. Tho
defense In the Eaton case may try to
show that Admiral Eaton died from the
efrects of his own ministrations. To this
end, any facts of his past life obtainable
in navy circles would aid the defense.
The search In the Eaton case, how
ever, hinges mainly on the whereabouts
of D. Henry Ainsworth, the former
Government clerk, from whom Mrs.
Eaton was divorced. The police want to
get Into touch with him, and it is be

ROME, April 13. While physicians attending the
Pope refused today to admit that his condition has under

day warranted the belief that His Holiness' condition is"
more alarming than at any stage of his illness.
Especially significant are these facts: Shortly before
the last bulletin was issued, the Pope's secretary, M. Pes

capacity of carmelengo would occupy the papal throne in
case of the Pope's death until the College of Cardinals
