to the meeting to-morrow of the ar

Vlcc-Prcsldent National Committee
man Josephus Daniels, of North Caro?
lina, is strongly urging this proposi?
tion to his fellow commltteemeu.
"Of course, all the presidential can?
didates say they would not accept sec I
ond place on the ticket, but what else
could they say at this time'."' said Con.- \

of the proposition.
Headquarters In l ull swing.
The headquarters of tits various pres- !
Idential candidates were in full swing;
today, and the rival camps issued hour?
ly claims of victor}*. Secretary Wood- |
soli said that nil of the contests re
ceived so far were quite, minor in char?
acter. !
All in a!!. I don't believe there w 111 ;
be nure than forty seats contested," '
said Secretary Woodsoii, "and these j
lepresent perhaps naif a dosen delega-*
lions. No one of them is serious.'' i
Lieut.-Gov. J. Taylor Ellyson, of

from that State, says that the several
candidates in the Held will receive part
of the vote cssti
"Virginia will be s.itUiied with any j

The Wilson people soy that they!
would be glad to have either Clark or
Harmon on the ticket with Wilton,

Contest Prom Philippines.
The contesting, unlnstructod delega-1
tion? from the. Philippine Islands are)
? omlug to the convention. This is a i
most peculiar situation, as ail tiiej'
other contesting or contested delega-1,
tloha differ on a candidate. Tne del- I
egalion thnt Is seated will have six
Votes.
The difference has arisen over Phil?
ippine Independence. The regular con?
vention, composed in large part ot
officeholders, elected a delegation com-;
posed of Taft Democrats, who were'
unwilling to criticise the administra?
tion or demand Indcpeu-cnce. if seat-'
cd, it is understood that they will1
vote at the direction of certain of?
ficers of the national administration j
Tho other delegation, hcaaed by C.
A. I'i Witt, a lawyer of Manila, was |
elected by a rump convention which
criticised the administration and de-1
dared for Philippine] independence at ,
once. Mr. De Witt, accompanied by ;
Signor Manuel L. Quezon, resident
commissioner for the Phillp'ne Islands.'

fcrrcd with Senator Stone, Clark lead; I

in favor ot the candidacy of the j
Speaker at the present stage of the
game, but If seated will await over- ;
lures from the supporters of tno can

it is believed by politicians that each ;
of th<- delegations will be seated wlln
the inetnbers given one-half vote each.
Perry lleliitonl Arrive*.
Among the early arrival.- yesterday
at the Belvtdcre Hotel were Mr. ami
Mrs. Perry Beltnont. ot New York, who ,
??ami- ove, iron, Washington to ostab
ll8h themselves here until the end ot
next week.
"I have no candidate." said Mr. Bel
mont, "and do not cure to be drawn
Into any discussion of tlie Issues be- |
fore the convention."
Tlie New York millionaire, who has j
been an ardent Democrat for ninny ,
years, lias generally been prominent
in the counsels of the party at con- '
ventlon lime'. Some persons believe I
tlmt he will he found Indorsing the ?
Gaynor candidacy before many days !
have expired, hut his Intimacy with j
"Boss'' Murphy will probably lead him
to refran from taking a stand on the.
nomination until after Murphv arrives

It is understood thnt the New York '
situation' was dlsousscd thoroughly*,
both men recognizing the fact that
the votes of thr.t State will go far
toward settling the question of the

Tn. Mayor referred in mont compli?

that the editor of the same was largely
responsible for "all of this strife"?

The Mayor said he could talk for
two hours und tell who would be pres?
idential nominees and congressional
nominees and all that kind of tiling,
but he would not. as he was on hand
to talk business ami not politics. He
dosed his brief remarks by most grace?
fully ac opting the big key to West
Point and issuing an official order to
all Richmond to tnkn possessio.i of the
town, and the folks proceeded to obey
the order In great style.
President Tax. f'arrington. of the
Chamber of Commerce, and President
Tom Bryan, of the Business Men's Club,
were loaded with big speeches, but Uir
in.,gram of the day's doings shut them
off. and they simply bowed to the big
crowd. However, they had an inning
later In ll.e day.
The local reception committee then
took charge of the crowd ami s-howed
them the town. Carriages, buggies,
wagons and automobiles were brought
into use, and all Richmond spent Jwo
hours and more in seeing all of West.
Point.

Then came the great fish dinnor at
Hotel O'Conner. It was called a llsh
