Charles Larson is proprietor of a
boarding house at 4y Forty-fifth
street. John A. Carlson is the star
boarder. Carlson's actions incurred
the displeasure of the landlord and he
was ordered to pack his trunk and
hunt another place to hang his cha
peau. This occurred last night.
Carlson endeavored to reason with
his landlord and the latter's wife ex
pressed a willingness to give the
boarder another chance, but Larson
declared that he was boss and what
he said had to go. Carlson did not
tppear to be in a rush to change board
ing houses and larson attempted to
lead him out the front door.

St. Louis, July 7. Senator Bailey of
Texas and Representative Champ
Clark, of Missouri, both declined to
accept the permanent chairmanship of
the democratic national convention.
When the committee met It organized
without delay. Senator Bailey and
Representative Clark were put in nom

s. vote of IS to IC The committee
then unanimously elected Charles A.
Walsh, of Iowa, secretary of the na

were made permanent and the commit

Win .ii Senator Bailey wan informed
of his election he announced at once
he could not accept it. as he desired to
be on the floor when the platform is
under discussion. He is expected to
combat any attempt from the Bryan
forces to inject into the platform
planks which do not meet the approval
of the committee. Therefore his de
clination of the chairmanship was re
spected. Bailey argued the chart
manship should be given to Clark, and
the committee called upon him and
made the tender. Clark answered he
was etigaged o put the name of Sena
tor COckren in nomination for the
presidency, and therefore would have
to be on the floor during the conven
tion. He was urged to reconsider and
finally agreed to telegraph Cockrell
that the place had bern offered him.
If Cockrell makes no objections. Clark
will accept. In view of the certainty
that Barker will be nominated, it is
believed Cockrell will ask that his
name be withdrawn.

STOLE RAILS IN DAVENPORT
AND SOLD THEM OYER HERE
Tuesday night the Davenport &
Suburban Railway company missed a
couple of the new steel rails that had
been distributed along the right of
way in that city preparatory to laying
them on the new line . Today the rails
were located in a Rook Island junK
yard, where they had been sold by a
stranger. The party who sold them
hired a peddler named Schneider to
haul them to this side and made his
escape. The junk dealer, when he
found that he had bought stolen prop
erty, promptly returned the rails and
there will be no prosecution unless
the enterprising thief, whose name
had not been learned this afternoon, is
able preliminary work adjourned to
meet at night. The meeting was call
ed to order by ex Senator Hill, of New
York, and on his motion Senator Dan
iel, of Virginia, was elected chairman.
A suggestion having been made that
the committee take a recess, Bryan
suggested that if there were any mem
bers who had drafted platforms which
they desired to present they should
submit copies to the members in order
that they might have time to consider
them before coming together again.
"If." said Daniel "t he gentleman from
Nebraska has a platform I should be
very glad indeed, for one, to have a
copy of it."
Bryan replied tiiai he had none. At
this juncture a number of members
stated that they had formulated var
ious resolutions which they desired to
submit. This was done and the com
mittee took a recess.
The Bajfc rftltft Appointed.
The committee on resolutions re
convened at 7 o'clock and Senator
Daniel announced the appointment of
the sub-committee to phepare the plat
form for submission to the full com
mittee as follows: Daniel. Virginia:
Hill, New York: Bryan. Nebraska:
Williams, Mississippi; Battison. Penn
sylvania: Dubois. Idaho; Hamlis,
Massachusetts; Cable. Illinois: Foe,
Maryland; Shively, Indiana, anil Davis.
Senator Newlands made a plea for
a fuller representation of the irriga
tion interests, and by unanimous con
sent his name was added to the sub
IMillinpineN Want n Government.
Oscar Suttro. chairman of the Phil
ippine delegation, appeared before the
committee and stated the desires of
his delegation. He asked that the fol
lowing be embodied in the platform:
"We believe I he destinies of the Phil
ippine islands and the United States
are firmly united and a form of terri
torial government similar to that now
In force in Porto Rico and the Hawai
ian Islands should be granted to the
Philippines at the earliest practicable
I.nld lde l.nhor 1'liink.
The committee entered upon the
consideration of the labor question
in connection with a plank planned
by eX-Oov. Thomas, of Colorado. This
plank recited the constitutional rights
of citizens, and declaied "Denial there
of by individuals or government should
be summarily rebuked and punished."
It also denounced "The infliction of
punishments without due process of
law and deny the right of any execu
tive to disregard or suspend any con
stitutional privilege or limitation."'
Gov. Thomas urged their adoption in
a speech in strong terms saying these
would do much to make Colorado
safely democratic. MacMahon, of
Ohio, replied saying that the adoption
of this plank might do much to secure
the labor vote, bur it would also prob
ably have the effect of depriving the
party of the support of employers of
labor. This question was temporarily
for Head and the Tennessee delega
tion are avowed supporters of the
New York candidate. On a vote the
Barker men won a decisive victory.
Head was selected by a vote of '-'2
By an unanimous vote six seals and
voles each were awarded the Philip
pines and Porto Rico.
The anti-Hearst faction of the Dis
trict of Columbia was seated by prac
tically an unanimous, vote.
Although the allotted time for Illi
nois and its thirteen contests was one
and one half hours, the committee was
nearly double that time in listening to
Hun at the Door.
The contestants in these cases were
represented by M. F. Dunlap. O. P.
Thompson and E. B. Tolman, contes
teefl by John P. Hopkins, Frank P.
Qulnn ami Roger C. Sullivan. The an
nouncement that the committee would
hear but three on each side was made
when many contestants were absent,
and the arguments were in full swing
when they appeared and demanded ad
mittance, claiming they had not been
consulted In the selection of the com
mittee. For a time there was prospect
for a fight around the doorway. The
committee was fully an hour consid
ering the evidence and decided the
Hopkins delegates should retain their
seats save Duncan C. Best in the
Twenty-first district. Gen. Alfred
Ttendorff was given the seat held by
Best. After the Illinois case was de
cided the motion was made to adjourn,
but It was overwhelmingly defeated.
The Hearst delegates declare that they
will carry the Illinois contest upon the
floor of the convention and fight to
