"3v president of the United States." This
Vr ' was the decision made yesterday at
the Democratic state convention. Eight
delegates selected at the convention
session to go to San Francisco on June
2S are not instructed, however. Pro
tests from McAdoo supporters follow-
od a motion to Instruct them, and it
was explained that it was not in
keeping with the desires of Mr. ?.Ic

him. The motion was not put to a

. and Congressman Milton H. "Welling

nominated, but Mr. Moyle and Mr.
Richards had their name3 withdrawn,
and a telegram from Congresman I
Welling was read which requested ;
that ho be not made a delegate.
Harmony Is Keynote.
Harmony was the keynote of tho'(
convention sessions yesterday, as was
made evident from the fact that alll
of the work outlined, which Is morel
than is generally done at such a con-j
ventlon, was completed in two brief i
sessions. The only argument and tne'
only period when battle threatened ,
was when the matter of election of
a state chairman was brought up. The 1
ficht was won" by Mathonihah Tho-
Imas. Practically all of the delegates!
present participated in the contest
f with the question at issue as to whetn-
' er or not Mr. Thomas would be re
elected as state "chairman. Mr. Tho
mas declared that he could not and:
would not continue In the office aa
his other duties made it imperative;
that he withdraw. He withdrew, but
the ovation given him approached that
given to the choice for president.
H. L. Mulliner, former county at
torney and a well-knowh Utah Dem
, ocrat was finally elected chairman of
" the state committee, and the vote was
jnade unanimous. Mr. Mulliner, F. E.
s4k Morris. Burton W. Musscr and Mr.
Tf Thomas were nominated. Mr. Mor-
rls and Mr. Thomas withdrew and a
ballot was taken on the names of Mr.
Musser and Mr. Mulliner. This re
sulted in a vote of 445 for Mulliner and
200 for Musser. In the Interests of
. harmony the vote then was made
unanimous for Mr. Mulliner.
There was no contest for the offices
of national committeeman and nation
al cominitteewoniau. W. W. Ray nomi
nated James H. Moyle ns national
committeeman, and this action was
seconded by Samuel A, King. It then
was moved thai his election be made
by acclamation, and this was done.
Similar action was taken in regard to
the national committee woman. Sena
tor Joseph Chez pieced in nomination
t the name of Mrs. R. B. Porter of Og
den, and this nomination was seconded
by Mrs. Elizabeth Haywurd and by
Mrs. G B Blakely and then she was
elected by acclamation.
Harmony was evident in the proceed
ings from the first, when the tempo
rary organization of the meeting was
made permanent and all unnecessary
resolutions and frills were dispensed
.with. The principal resolution adopt
ed contained the following paragraphs:
I "We indorse the national Democratic
administration at Washington and the
incomparable statesmanship of Wood
row Wilson, who has fulfilled in every
partlcular the pledges of the platform
on which he was elected president of
the United States. He has proved him
self to be fearless, progressive, un
daunted and humane in tho presence
of every condition that has confronted
him, and to be one of the greatest
statesmen that the world has pro
duced. Wilson Indorsed.
"Wo regard the treaty of peace and
covenant for the creation of a league
of nations, negotiated by President
Wilson, as beiiyj as nearly perfect
ns it was humanly possible to procure
at tho Versailles conference.
"We therefore favor the immediate
ratification and adoption of the treaty
of peace and league of nations without
reservations that will ,In effect, nullify
the treaty or covenant for the league.
This set of resolutions was signed
by J. D. Call, chairman, and Frank
Francis, secretary of the committee
which presented It.
It was seen from the start that Mr.
McAdoo was the choice of tho conven
tion. His name was mentioned by
Mr. Moyle in tho keynote address, and
it brought forth a storm of applause,
as did that of President Wilson. In
each case the entire delegation rose
to its feet and cheered with genuine
enthusiasm for about five minutes. The
mention of A. Mitchell Palmer's name
brought forth applause, but not on the
order of the others mentioned.
The work of tho convention was
crowded toward the end, and, for that
reason, after the proposed dclDgate.-i
were nominated, it was decided that
tho eight receiving the highest num
ber of votes on the first ballot bo de
clared elected, and that the next eight
in the line of high votes should be
declared the eight alternates. This ac
tion was taken on a unanimous vote
o the house when it was announced
that the theater had keen rented for
but a limited time, and had to give
way for another engagement. It was
taken rather than to adjourn to some
other place to continue the meeting.
The result seemed to meet with gener
al satisfaction, and the harmony still
prevailed when the convention was ad
journed shortly before 7 o'clock yester
Weber County Organizes.
With tho convention hall but partly
filled at 10 o'clock, the time set for
the opening. States uuairman Thomas
took the chair and announced a brief
postponement to enable the Weber
county delegates to organize.
At 10:62 Chairman Thomas officially
opened the. convention and tho dele
gates rose to the playing of tho "Star
.Spangled Banner." Bishop o. Clarence
Neslen of Salt Lake was introduced
as chaplain and gave the invocation.
Mr. Thomas then paid a tribute to
the work of Paul H. Ray as secretary
of the state organization, and intro
duced Mr. Ray, who read the official
call for the convention
In beginning. the official work of the
convention Mr. Thomas said:
"We are hero for the purpose of
electing delegates to San Francisco
where they will make a real platform,
where they will nominate a man for
president and a man for vice president
who will bo elected in November.

dark horses in connection wtlh the Re
publican convention. Three months
ago an eastern man told mo frankly
that Harding of Ohio was the man the
old guard had chosen. The New York
Times characterizes Mr. Harding as 'a
very respectable Ohio politician of the
second class.' "
This opinion and other similar edi
torial expressions brought a round of
laughter from . the convention. Mr.
Thomas went on:
"Every glorious progressive thinE
that the Roosevelt wing or the Repub
lican party stood for has been placed
in cold storage. Every leader of that
faction has been placed among the
l 'has beens.' The reactionary element

"The platform of the Republican -party
adopted at ilcago has .been lik
ened to a petition in bankruptcy, and
with that petition there is na,sbhcdulo

ties. Sees Victory.
"There is no question that the peo
ple of this country will again return
the party which for seven years has
been brilliantly led by the greatest
statesman the world has ever seen."
At these remarks the hall again
broke Into applause, most of the dele
gates rising and cheering.
James H. Moylo was then introduced
by Mr. Thomas as the temporary chair
man. Moyle, In his introductory
speech, scored the Republican party
as a whole for, what he termed, its
He also was scathing in his remarks
to the assemblage on the senior
United States senator from Utah, San
ator Reed Smoot, Republican.
"Tools of Wall street and Boss Pen
'rose," said Moyle, "rejoice at the se
lection of Harding as the candidate
of tho party for the presidency be

Itool of tho old guard machine and of
"The Republicans have only one in
terest the interest of Wall street
ami now the Republican party has- ob
itained the 'Tin Can' candidate, tho
candidate of money, the tried, true and
devoted servant of the old guard.
"Governor Harding fought Theodore
Roosevelt's proffresslveness and today
the platform of the Republican party
cannot even be considered progressive
or constructive, and it is no wonder
that Senator Borah and Senator John-,
son will say nothing.
"The old guard aro for their selfish
interests working to have their tools
enthroned In "power in tho invisible
government of the United States
where they may betray tho power
which the people Invest in them.
"Tho senior senator from Utah has
spent his life in the service of Mam
mon; he thinks in dollars and cents,
and not in tho cause of humanity.
"For the past year articles praising
the work of tho senior senator from
Utah have been seen in the Deserct
News and The Herald and they have
become so contagious that you may
almost read them between the lines
of tho Tribune.

"These articles have all emanated
from the offices of the senior senator
in Washington, written by a protego
of the senior senator, who occupies a
soft Job in tho senator's office.
"They praise extravagantly work of
this man, the leader of the old guard,

"When the Republicans seemed to
see their power slipping and their par-i
ty in danger of death, through any!
capitalization of the Democrats of tho
achievement of the party In the great
world war, they set out to break
down tho party in every way possi
ble. "He joined with the thirty-nine sen
ators against the league after tho Re
publicans thought the Democrats
would attempt to capitalize the war
and he soon learned that he would
have to hedge. It was the wish of
Penrose or the wish of the people.

"Tho state of Utah would bo flooded
with money to re-elect the senior sen

tho laws of tho state the corrupt
practices act prevent the scheming
and framing of the party leadors, who
do not want to lost him.
"For the past year the Republican
party has been organized in Utah, or

Western Man Says Weakness
of Securities Market Is
Cause of Trouble
WASHINGTON, Juno IE. While
urging substantial freight rate ln
j creases for the railroads, R. C. Ful
j bright, of Houston, Texas, represent
ing the southwestern industrial traffic
j league, told the interstate commerce
commission that rato Increases alone
j would not solve the nation's trans-
iportation problems and that the 31
per cent increase asked by tho west
ern roads was not necessary.
The railroads face three major prob
lems, Mr. Fulbrlght declared. First,
the labor problem; second, tho rev
enue problem, and third, the tax prob
lem. Increased rates will not solvo the
labor question under existing condi
tions, ho said, declaring that the con
ditions themselves must be changed.
Tho root of the revenue problem" lies
in the market for vallroad ' securities,
Mr. Fulbrlght said and Increased
rates will not creato a market for the
Discussing the tax. Mr. Fulbrlght
said investors In railroad securities
woro burdened with a heavy surtax
and normal tax which reduced the re
turn on the Investment to only two or
three per cent while municipal securi
ties and Liberty bonds largely wero
tax free and thus gave a greater re
turn to tho investor.
Besides, the "tax discrimination,"
Mr. Fulbrlght said tho dumping of foreign-owned
securities on the American
market contributed to the stagnation
in tho railroad securities' market. He
urged that tho railroads use tho same
diligonce in having the "tax discrim
ination" removed by legislation as
thoy do in seeking increased rates.
Uniform rates throughout the west
wero urged by Mr, Fulbrlght who de
clared that tho southwestern territory
should not be singled out for higher
rates or territorial treatment.
