Made by the Opposing Can
Chicago, May 13. Old politicians,
veterans of many a stormy contest in
the bitter precincts, look on with won
der and amazement at the way the
women who arc delegates to the head
camp of the Royal Neighbors of Amer
ica arc playing fraternal society poll
tics in the session now on at the Audi
torium hotel here. There are 200 del
egates present, and not a one but is
in the midst of from one to a dozen
plots and counter plots In the interest
of one or the other faction. The light
iu the statu camp meeting at Peoria
is being repeated here, and it may be
that at the election tomorrow after
noon there will be scenes like those
at I'eoria, when the delegates engaged
in a genuine personal conflict.
Personalities are freely indulged in
in the caucuses that arc held continu
ally, and even on the floor of the cou
veniion. Mrs. Mary Faye Hawes of Rock Is
land and Mrs. Lina M. Collins of St.
Paul are the opposing candidates for
supreme oracle; Mrs. Winnie Fielder
of Peoria and Miss Myrtle Dade of
Rock, Island are candidates for the of
fice of supreme recorder, and Dr. Franc
Morrill of Chicago and Dr. llada Burk-
hart of Rock Island are out for the po
sition of supreme physician. The fac
tion lines are very closely drawn, with
the Hawes-Fielder-Morrill forces com
bined against the Collins-Dade-Burk-
y Mrn. Ilatvrs Sprnkn.
The convention opened with an ad
dress of welcome bv Dr. Evans, com
missioner of health of Chicago. Mrs,
Hawes was called on by Mrs. Amanda
Wilson, the tenijMjrary chairman, to
make an address of welcome, and her
remarks were of a dignified and diplo
matic character, and ignored entirely
the bitter contest which forms an un
dercurrent of the convention. ,
In the afternoon there was. a heated
discussion over the refusal of the con
vent ion to seat a Dade delegate from
Missouri, and again later when an Il
linois delegate favoring Mrs. Fielder
was also refused a seat.
The nominations are being made this
afternoon. Two slates have been
formed, one called the "ring" ticket
by its opponents, and headed by Mrs.
Hawes, the other termed the "repre
sentative delegation" ticket, headed by
Mrs. Collins. The slates are as fol
lows: HAWES TICKET.
Supreme Oracle Mrs. Hawes.
Supreme Recorder Mrs. Fielder.
Supreme Receiver Mrs. Eunice Wil
bur, Beatrice. Neb.
Supreme Board of Managers Mrs.
Eva Child, Hanover, Wis.; Mrs. Clara
Richards, Lansing, Mich.; Mrs. Anna

NOTES OF INTEREST
(Black is a coming vogue for Sum
mer Millinery. White will not be
neglected and white with' black bids
fair to be a most popular combination
for either large or small hats.
To increase your weight you should
take five small meals a day. It is well
to eat jut exactly -what you want and
like. Nothing is as good for thin peo
ple as eating just what they want. If
you drink with your meals you will
find yourself growing fatter, and it
will also increase your weight if you
eat a littje -warm food,. say something
not and nourishing, just before going
to bed hot soup or warm milk or . a
cup of hot chocolate.

ens with simple Doilies for Water
Tumblers, Cups, Plates and Hot
Flowers are pretty for young girls'
and children's hats and are tremen
dously popular on the sailor.
The Kabo Form-Reducing Corset is
creating a sensation among women a
little over-plun-p, and who wish' to
avoid the appearance of stoutness.
