Bnlley the Unknown Quantity.
Joe Bailey continues to be the un
known quantify at the convention and
everything is being planned with his
actions In view. It is not thought that
he will make his speech before the
convention until Wednesday, when the
report of the resolutions committee Is
made. Bailey said Tuesday morning
that he might not make a speech ir
thn onnvention did the right thing, as
a speech would not then be necessary.
However, he was heard to be drilling
three well known Texas Bailey men
In three resolutions which he hopes to
have introduced on the floor, so that
he may have a chance to discuss them.
These are believed to be in opposition
to the Ferguson land plank, against
nation wide prohibition and woman's
suffrage and faToring a tariff on free

admitted, however, that Colquitt was
only putting himself on record for the

caucus have made an announcement
from Bailey that he will be a candidate

proposal and announced that he would
make no compromise with Bailey, as he
was against him for anything he
wanted. The Ferguson men say that
Bailey is scratching the paint off of the
side of the Ferguson band wagon try
ing to get aboard, as he realizes that
if he does not align himself with this
faction, he will be a dead one in Texas
politics. Friends of Bailey insist that
he is sufficiently big to dominate any
situation and that he will care for him

Isue arises in which he is interApit
The Ferguson men. who have little
kindly ieel'ng for Bailej, answer that
Bailey may have been here to put
something over on the convention an

The Ferguson leaders were suffi
ciently concerned about Bailey's pres
ence here to call the Ferguson caucus
at the courthouse Monday night to dis
cuss the plans for Tuesday's conven
tion and map a plan of campaign for
the remainder of the convention.
Steam Roller Pnt to Work.
Steam roller methods were applied to
the contests before the executive com
mittee of the convention Monday after
noon. The sub-committee on creden
tials had greased the roller by throwing
out all of the Ball delegations from con
tested counties, and seating Ferguson
delegations in thuir places. The report
of this committee was submitted to the
executive committee at its second meet
ing Monday afternoon at 4 oclock. The
report was made by George Culp, of
Gainsville. who iR chairman nf tho tnh.
committee. The five contesting counties I

county contest and It was renewed be
fore the executive committee as it was
before the sub-committee Monday
morning. When chairman Culp an
nounced that the sub-committee had
seated all of the contesting delegation"
some one in the crowd of Interested
spectators said, "toot-toot for the
steam roller," and the crowd laughed.

oui xrom larrani county e claimed
ma. me reguiany accreomea deiea- .
tion had been thrown out and an Irres- J
ular delegation without certified creden
tials had been seated because they
were Ferguson men. He read the law
and held that the committee had no
right to throw out a repularlv ac
credited delegation before It could be
seated on the floor of the convention.
Just to show that it could be done, the
executive committee voted unanimously
to seat the contesting delegations.
Culp and Stevens had a lively debate
before the ommlttee. Culp sajing that
one man had declared before the sub
committee that this contest was being
made because of the treatment the dele
gation had received two years ago
Stevens answered this by saying that
his delegation was not making a con
test, as it was the regularly accredited
delegation and any contest would have
to be made from the other delegation.
He gave notice of appeal from the de
cision of the committee and said that he
would carry the contest to the floor of

FLEETS IN I
France, Russia and England
to Send Aerials Against
New York. Aug. 11. The great con
flict now raging among the powers of
Europe, promises not only to be a
struggle for supremacy on land and
sea but for supremacy ln the air as
well. France. Russia and England will
send their vast air fleets against the
giant Zeppelins ot the Germans.
Ir a measure, the present European
war will settle for all time the relatu e
merits of the aeroplane and the dirigi
ble balloon as engines of destruction.
In the development of the latter type
of aircraft Germany stands supreme
She has nine of the giant Zeppelins
fully equipped, and five more nearing
completion. Work on these Is being
rushed with all possible speed. They
range from 450 to SIS feet ln length,
are equipped with motors giving from
3se to 410 horse power, and carry light
three Inch guns which have been suc
cessfully fired ln maneuvers. They
speed through the air at the rate of
40 or SO miles an hour.

advantage of a number of small bags,

Austria also has several rigid dirigi

Italy Joins ln with Germany and Aus
tria, the triple alliance will have at Its
disposal 31 of this type or aircraft
On the other hand England, France
and Russia can muster 14 gas bag air
ships, but they are all much smaller
than the ZeppeHns and are of non rigid
or semi rigid type.
The triple Entente, formed by these
three countries, will pin their faith to
their aeroplanes rather than to the bal
loons. It Is estimated that the Entente
has ISM aeroplanes against the TOO of
alliance. France, especially, has de
veloped the array aeroplane to a high
state of efficiency and uses both the
monoplane and the biplane, although
the former predominates. For scout
ing work, the r?aoplane has proved
to be more successful because of the
greater speed It can attain and the
fewer chances of discovery by the army.
Italians Brat Trained.
The Italian aviators are the only air
men who have received actual training
