Attempt Made to Substitute Slate
System tor Australian Ballot
Denver, Col., May 5- (Special)
Following the reading of report yes
terday afternoon several motions in one
doing away with the Australian ballot i
were Introduced by the Bnrlght fac
tion, and declared out of order by the
chair. The chair maintained her posi
tion by constant use of the gavel for
four hours. The supreme officers of
the En right faction continually encour
aged their delegates contrary to the
ruling of the chair.
It looks like a packed convention.
Supreme Oracle Collins held the fort
till 7 p. m-, when adjournment was tak
en with prospects of a continuance of
the use of the gavel today.

The trouble brewing between the two
factions of the Royal Neighbors cul
minated In a riot at the meeting last
night. A squad of policemen answer
ed a riot call to quell the disturbance.
In which the delegates indulged In hair
pulling and a policeman was mobbed
by thexcited woman and so roughly
handled that a second riot call was
turned In and the reserve force was
rushed to the building. f

Mrs. Collins, the supreme oracle, was
defied for four hours by Margaret
Kuhn of Michigan, who offered a mo
tion which the chair declared out of
order. Mrs. Kuhn held the ground, and
was so weak from the ordeal that she
was forced to stand on crutches, and
was administered stimulants by physi
cians to maintain her strength. The
police quelled the riot and kept a
watch outside the building dating the
rest of the session.
The cause of the trouble was Kubo's
motion to amend the laws, substituting
the state. system for the Australian ,
ballot -system. Indications point to a
fight this afternoon on the election. j
