Convention Called. Chairman
George W. S;olt of the democratic
city central committee has called the
(lemocratic city convention to be held
at Turner hall at 11 o'clock, Saturday,
March 14. Being Saturday and an in
convenient time for the delegates to
attend, it is very probable the convon
tion will be called to order at thai
time and an adjournment taken to the
following Monday evening. Many poo
pie have been led to believe that un
der the new primary law and the se
lection of candidates at the primaries
there would be no convention thl
year. But this is a mistake. While no
nominations will be made at the con
vention, unless a vacancy occurs some
where on the ticket, in which case the
vacancy will be filled by nomination
at the convention, there will be other
business to. transact, such as the adop-
ion of a platform, passing of resolu
tions, selection of central committee,
etc. The law also requires the repub
licans to hold a city convention on the
Boat Club Elects. The new Daven-
port Boating club held a largely at

Commodore, William Gosch; vice com
modore, E. H. Van Patten; rear com
modore, Robert Naeve;' secretary, C.
