their strength to Cannon and shortly
the Cannon vines went, to Knox, leav

! How It's Done.
The boys have been preparing for
the convention for several weeks, and
in the meeting yesterday practically
every state had a lepivseutative. Tin.
vote was apportioned according to the
real renresental ion of the state in the
convention in Chicago.
At the openjr.g session Principal II
E. Brown add reined the boys and gave
a short sketch Of the order of busi
ness of the content ieu. T. ,M. Coen
one of the school instructors, was then
elected perm 1:11 lit chairman of tin
meeting. The orcanization completed
the various candidates were placed in
nomination in the usual manner, of
roll call by slates, the nominating
speeches being made by I lie following:
Knox John lioche.
Cannon. .loo Suudell.
Taft John Seidel.
Fo r a k e r Edwin 1 1 c I n t y r e .
Shaw X. Hart on Sears.
Cummins litn Finklesteiu.
Fairbanks Dan Breiinan.
LaFollette Jerome O'Connor.
The nomination of the d.irk horse of
the convention, Oovernor Charles De
neen of Illinois, was made by George
Schneider. The dark hots' did not
poll very strong in the balloting, how
ever. The Hesiilts.
When the roil call had been com
pleted, tho tally showed Knox in the
lead with 271. Cannon second with
Stlfi, Taft in third place with. "n;. Fair
banks with 73, LuFoliette with 40.
Shaw with 21, Foraker with 21 and
Deiieen with but a single vole. The
vote was not entirely counted before
the delegates w.-ie on their feet
swinging over Io Cannon and Knox. ..
The boys did not attempt to aiiuljz.

Iv- followed thvir individual inclina
tions. As I no votes represent state
delegations, it is not known just what
the actual choice of the high school
boys is. The piegrarn was unique and
interesting, and proved the means of
giving the boys a better understanding
dt the political machinery.
the acoustic properties are perfect It
has a seating capacity of 12,000 peo
ple and is in all respects the finest
convention hall ever constructed, as
it is the most modern.
"One of the weighty reasons for
taking the democratic national conven
tion to Denver was the coolness of
the weather in that city in July. Every
convention that has been held in the
ast has suffered from the heat, but
at the Denver gathering there will be
no weather warm enough to make the
mdionce fed uncomfortable. In the
timiner eveniniis' the cool breezes

largely in the nature of an experiment
U bring a convention so far west, and
the residents of Denver know the re
suits will be watched witn interest, so
they are preparing to keep the credit
of their citv as a great popular meet
iug place for conventions up to the
highest mark by leaving nothing un
done to please the visitors."

decipher a word. Then place the ps
