Charles W. "Vail hes returned from
a rflying trip to Springfield, where he
had a. long conference with Governor
Deneen and James A. Rose, secretary
of state. He went ostensibly in the
interest of McKenrie Cleland, who, he
claims, is entitled to be certified to
the superior court bench in place of
Judge Albert Barnes.
KISSIOTT IS P"A FLTTRE.
Mr. Tail failed in his mission, so
far as getting the secretary of state
to act because the superior court
judges are not etate officers, as are
circuit court jurists, and the certifica
tion rests with County Clerk Robert M.
"While talking with Mr. Rose Mr.
Vail decided to run for secretary of
state. Mr. Rose has held the office
four terms, pearly sixteen years, and
is a candidate for reelection. Hither
to he has not had much opposition, but
now Mr. Vail says he means to make a
fight for the place. State Representa
tive Chester "W. Church also is said to
be a candidate for the position and
soon will announce himself.

Shelby M. Cullom.' His friends said
he -was only waiting for Goveronr De
neen to make some announcement.
The governor told friends this week
he had no intention of being stamped
ed into making any statement.
State Senator Henry M, Dunlap of
Savoy is reported on the eve of com
ing out as a candidate against Lieu
tenant Governor John G. Oglesby. Dun
lap Is from Congressman McKinley's
district, but has had & falling out with
the congressman, and thinks he has a
better chance, it is said, to run for a
6tate office than against McKinley.
Announcement by Lawrence T.
Sherman that he is a candidate for
governor is expected by his fr'ends In
a few days. It is known that he has
prepared his platform. Congressman
William 'A. Rodenberg also Is said to
have a gubernatorial platform ready
to spring at an opportune moment.
WATTT PADE!C TO KITS.
Mayor Joseph E. Paden of Evanston
is being urged by friends to come out
as candidate for governor as a solu
tion of the factional fight of the repub
licans. Mayor Paden, never having
taken an active part in politics, if
nominated, it is hoped would have the
support of all factions.
It is said by the mayor's friends
that a Lorimer man could not win,
and that an avowed progressive or
Deneen man would not bring to his
support a great many republican vot
ers. Mayor Paden is said to be a
"middle-of-the-road" republican, more
interested in state affairs than in fac
tional politics. He has been president
of the State Association of Mayors
and has a large acquaintance among
prominent men of the state.
ASK LEGISLATIVE ACTIOX.
The Progressive Republican league
of Cook unty yesterday, in a com
munication sent to Governor Deneen,
asked that if a special session of the
legislature be called a number of
measures advocated by the progret
sives be included in the call.
The things the progressives want
the legislature to consider are:
A corrupt practice act.
Election of United States senators
from Illinois by what is known as the
Provision for a preferential vote on
president and vice -president of the
Submission of a constitutional
amendment to the voters of Illinois
providing for direct legislation by the
initiative and referendum.
The communication was signed by
Fletcher Dobyns, president of the
Cook county league, and Walter S.

An hour later the three men had
shaken hands with Joan down on the
beach. She i;ave the signal, and the
boat shoved off, six men at the oars,

"She is only a girl." Christian Young
said with slow solemnity. The discov

spur of the moment. "Shp Is only a

"Yes, she is brave." was the reluc

disposed to talk about her.
They gained the veranda, where
they sat in silence over their whisky,
each man staring straight out to sea,
where the wildly swinging riding light
of the Minerva could be seen in the
lulls of the driving rain.
An hour later Christian Young stood
up. knocked out his pipe and prepared
to go aboard and get under way.
"She's all right." he said, apropos of
nothing spoken and yet distinctly rele
vant to what 'was In each of their
minds. "She's got a good boat's crew,
and she's a sailor herself. With this

on the table. "I'll start the first thing

Sheldon, sitting on alone, wondered
if the other man would have decided
to pull out In the morning bad Joan
