Absence of Important Witness
es Causes Postponement;
SAN FRANCISCO, Decembor 5. The
failure of the prosecution to locate
James L. Gallagher, chairman of the
finance committeo of the boodling board
of Miporvisora, and the absence of Frank
A. Leach, director of the mint of tho
city, today caused the postponing of the
trial of Patrick Calhoun until next
Leach is in Washington and Gallagher
is somewhere in the east, either in
Washington or New York. Gallagher
by permission of tho prosecution went
east on a trip for two weeks when the
courts closed, promising to return whon
wanted. Because of the absence of the
witnesses and the difficulty in 'getting
a jury just before the holidays, it be
came very apparent to both sides today,
that thero is a probability that the
trial of Calhoun may be postponed until
after the first of the year.
Republicans Decide Today
Where it Will Be Held; Chi
cago Makes Good Offer,
WASHINGTON, December 5. The
formidable character of Kansas City's
boom for tho republican national con
vention has stirred tho friends of Chi
cago to renewed endeavor, and some
of them were very hopeful tonight of
yet securing tho meeting. A largo per
centage of the committeemen feel that
tho convention should not go west of
the Mississippi and they seem to have
centered upon Chicago ns tho most
available point cast of that stream.
A number of thoso who tako that
view held a conference this afternoon
and reached the conclusion that a ma
jority of tho committeo really favor
Chicago and that that city could secure
tho convention if it would pledge a
sufficient sum to pay expenses.
During tho eveuing assurance was
received from Chicago that if tho con
vention should como to thnt city the
Coliicum, with a seating capacity of
14,000, would bo provided with proper
facilities for holding the convention
rent free, and also that tho city would
give ns large an amount for convention
expenses as hns ever been done in the
past. With these assurances those who
advocate tho selection of Chicago will
go before tho committeetomorrow con
fident of success.
