Republican Convention Said to
Favor the Massachusetts
Recognizes Worth of Present Law
But Says No Schedule
Chicago, June 22. The early morn
Ins developed a tendency towards the
adoption of the tariff policy outlined
by the Massachusetts RepuJ^Jcan con
vention, which, while recognizing the
worth of the present tariff law, de
clared that no schedule was sacredly
or necessarily permanent.
Senator Lodge is understood to beed
the author of this plank and the fart
that he will be chairman of the com
mittee on resolutions gives strength
and color to. the contentionHKU he
will press a similar plank on the na
tional resolutions committee. When
pressed on the subject regarding the
probable declaration he said:
"You cannot tell what forty-five men
His closest friends in private life
say the Massachusetts --senator has
given free expression to the hope that
his state's expression will be sustained
by the national gathering.
It is claimed that this would be wise,
for it would leave the door open for
changes thought wise, while not mak
ing it mandatory.
MAY BE UNANIMOUS.
Effort to Eliminate Favorite Sen Vote,
for Vice Presidency.
Chicago, June 22.:Before the con
vention was called to order there \vu3
a rather general interchange of ideas
among the leaders. The only impor
tant result of these informal coher
ence's was the inception of a move
ment to bring about unanimous action
to eliminate the "favorite son" con.ali
mentary vote which several do!., a
tions expect to give candidates. Ji is
recalled that simiiar action was tai.on
at Philadelphia four years ago and the
argument is made that, as the conven
tion is to be a ratification meeting
anyway, both candidates should -ie
unanimously named. Very few oMii'e
men who will be presented expect to
receive any votes outside of their o\n
delegations and it is pointed out. that

Present" liulfca't ions are that the cre

will be the one place where the jjlacid
assurance and even monotonous feel
ing of party security and consequent
lethargy will be broken. A tunnel
shaped cloud is gathering over the
head of this committee and the storm
of political pique, sectJbnal si rife and
party bickering is scheduled break
the minute the committee assembles:
Individual members of this committee,
as they have been chosen by their
state delegations, have literally been
besieged and made to listen'to various
tales- of grief. Just what will be the
aggregated result of the vigorous wire
pulling cannot be predicted.
Senator Lodge of Massachusetts,
who is slated for the chairmanship of
the committee on resolutions, has de
cided to appoint as ^members of the
subcommittee which' is to draft the
platform Senator Spooner of Wiscon

MINNESOTA MAN INJURED.
William Hodson of Hastings Hit by
Cab at Chicago.
Chicago, June 22.The first acci
dent to any of the delegations result
in a serious injury to William Hod
son, an alternate from Hastings. Minn.,
just as he was about to enter the con
vention hall. He alighted from a
street car on the Wabash avenue side
of the building and just as he stepped
to the street a cab approached, being
driven rapidly in the opposite direc
tion. The horse struck Mr. Hodson,
who was knocked down and the wheels
of the. cab passed over his left leg
just above the knee, producing a com
pound fracture. He was hurried at
once to the Emergency hospital in the
annex to the Coliseum, where his leg
was dressed and lie was then removed
to St. Luke's hospital. His condition
is not serious.
