ST. LOUIS SELECTED
AS CONVENTION CITY
WILSON STRONGLY ENDORSED BY
Democratic Hosts will Assemble in
Missouri Metropolis July 14.
Two Contests Settled.
Washington, Dec. 7.?The Democratic
national convention of 1916 wTill
be held at St. Louis beginning Wednesday,
July 14, at noon. The Democratic
national committee tonight chose the
convention city and adopted resolutions
calling for the renominatiOD and
re-election of Woodroow Wilson as
"the trusted leader of national Dem.
Chicago and Dallas contested with
St. Louis for the honor of tne convention,
but St. Louis easily led from
*he start and won on the second ballot"
When the trend of the voting was seen,
Texas moved that the choice of St.
Louis be made unanimous. Dallas held
second place on the first ballot but
was displaced by Chicago on the second
The result of the first ballot was:
St. Louis, 25; Dallas, 14; Chicago. 13.
On the second ballot the vote was St.

majority for St. Louis was gained on
this ballot, when John T. McGraw
arose near the end of the call and
changed West Virginia's vote from
Chicago to the .'Missouri city. Then the
choice was made unanimous. It has
been customary heretofore for national
conventions to begin work on 'Tuesday.
The fact that Tuesday fell on the 13th
next year may or may not have had
crvm-.trnne' tr> rirv with the determina
tion of the committee to begin the
proceedings a day later. The official
explanation, however, was to the effect
that the convention would not
require more than three or four days
to complete its work and it would not
be too late in the week to start on
Political leaders in Washington tonight
regarded it as practically certain
that Chicago would be selected for
the Republican convention when the
national committee of that party meets
here next Tuesday. The date for this
convention probably will be late in
June. Each of the t^ee cities contesting
for the DemooMitic convention

speakers were greeted with enthusi-!
astic cheers by the members of their
/delegation and the "rebel yell" several
times interrupted the proceedings.
Chicago based its appeal largely on
its climate and its known ability to j
take care of convention crowds.

steadfastly worked for the cause of
peace and has averted war, without

He has vindicated the rights of |
neutrals on the sea. He has' upheld the j
best traditions in his high office and j
has discharged his trust with such efficiency
that he has won the confidence
and affection of the American people,
regardless of political affiliations. His
masterly handling of both national and

and representatives in congress who
have tirelessly and successfully endeavored
to assist the president in the
work of his administration."

j Perhaps the most potent reason for ,
! its lack of celebrity is that this is the f
J big tree park, and the general public
associates the big trees of California

giants, tiie two others being the Mercea
J and Tuolumne groves, which lie witbj
In easy reach to the northwest.
The Sequoia National park, however,
which lies many miles south of Yose!
mite, was created to preserve, for the ,
1 use and pleasure of the people of the
| United States, by far the greatest
groves of the oldest, the biggest and
the most remarkable trees living in1
J this world. They number 1,100,000. '

j with a diameter of 28 feet. }
The General Grant National park is

cause, though separated by six miles
of mountain and forest, the two are
practically the same national park. It
, contains only 2.53(> acres and was created

not yet certain, but I have counted the

The sequoias are found scattered all
over the park, which has an area of
161,597 acres, but the greater trees are
gathered in thirteen groups or many
acres each, where they grow close together.
