Syracuse, N. Y.-Oscar S. Straus,
former secretary of commerce and
Aabor, in the cabinet of President
-Roosevelt, was unanimously acclaim
ed the nominee for governor by the
Progressive party in a stampeded
convention under circumstances not
only unexpected, but dramatic.
4 The former cabinet member, acting
as the convention's permanent chair
man, was about to entertain a motion
from former Lieut. Gov. Timothy L.
Woodruff to expedite the roll call on
the names of State Chairman William
H. Hotchkiss and Comptroller Wil
liam A. Prendergast of New York,
when a delegate from New York
county leaped to his chair and de
manded to be heard.
"It's 'Suspender Jack' McGee,'
cried a voice from the gallery. Chair
man Straus looked puzzled. McGee,
who got his name In the Indian
country by riding a broncho int
tamp, with suspenders used as reins,
moved resolutely toward the plat
"They say I'm crazy, but I know
what I am doing," he cried, as he
swung up the platform steps.
McGee, a flaming bandanna around
his neck and his coat blazing witb
badges, tossed his rough rider hat on
the floor and demanded the right to
make a nomination.
"Whom do you wish to nominate?'
asked Chairman Straus, but McGee
gave ony a meaningless shake of the
head. Delegates cried: "Put him
out!" But McGee stuck to his pur
Delegates and spectators booed and
jeered as he began to speak. There
was a general laugh wjhen he cried:
"I'll name a man, the mention of
whose name will bring tears of sym
pathy to the eyes of almost every
man and woman in the civilized
He paised a moment and then
cried: "I nominate the illustrious an1
honorable Oscar S. Straus."
The delegates seemed stunned.
Then a few of them cheered. Mc
Gee kept on with his speech and the

dozen delegates; gradually grew into
a pandemonium that swept the con

Chicago Sultor's Faith in Advice of a

-Tired of "I'll Be a Sister to You"
Chicago. - Stone-age love-making,
with thumps as marks of affection,
doesn't work out right, even though It
is advised by a scientific Chicagoan.
Johxi Mahoney tried it out, and he
knows. ;.John paid $50 for thumping
the woman he would take for better
or for wPorse. She is now the "steady"
of another man.
Mahoney lives at 2013 Princeton ave
nue, and the other Sunday he arose
bright and early and went out on the
back porch to read the paper. There
he read that Dr. William F. Waugh,
dean of Bennett Medical college and
chief physician of Jefferson Park hos
pital, advised rough tactics in the win
ning of a woman's love.
"When she ".rouses your jealousy
beat her. She expects such treat
ment," read Mahoney.
"Hurray!" he cried. "Here's the pre
scription. Just what I want"
Then he read further. It was some
thing like this:
"There is a constantly thickening
coat of the varnish of civilization over
man and woman, but underneath they
are indehtical with the cave man and
cave woman. The human being is un
changed at heart. Stone-age maxims
Then John scratched his head and
thought. He figured. it all out that
Julia Chemeleske, 3231 Albany ave
nue, his sweetheart for three years,
had slipped .him the "I'll be a sister
to you" chatter and was keeping com
pany with another man.
John waited until evening and then
strolled ddwn Halsted street. Sure
enough, there was Julia, eating ice
cream with a girl friend and probably
waiting for the more lucky man. Ma
honey waited until they left tfe ice
cream parlor, then followed. The girls

Miss Chemeleske displayed a phy

she had been brutally choked and

the Thirty--fifth street court, severely
reprimanded Mahoney and fined hin
$50 and costs. The girl likewisE
