NICE AND SMOOTH
Harmony 3IarkedN Democratic
Convention at Wichita.
o Riot Calls, Broken Fnrnl
ture, or Harsh Memories.
DARK HORSES TO BIG FOUR
Candidates Withdraw Rather
Than Precipitate Row.
Praise Wilson and League Mc
Adoo Sentiment Strong.
BY A. L. SHCLTZ.
Not since the good, mellow old days
following fusion, the visitation of I
Populism and the spirit of the 90's,
have Kansas Democrats held a more
genial and profitable state convention
than the one which adjourned Thurs
day afternoon in "Wichita. There was
a seeminff reluctance in the adjourn- j
ment. The medicine makers had re
turned to their powers and elements.
Kansas Democracy had actually spent
an entire day in council and confer
ence end had gone home without a
riot call, the breaking of furniture or
creation of a list of harsh memories.
The following were elected dele
gates at large: Jouett Shouse, Kins
ley; George H. Hodges, Olatha: Robert
W. Blair, Topeka; Mrs. Caroline
Drennan, Arkansas City. Sam Ami
don," Wichita, was elected national
committeeman.
Clearly McAdoo Meeting.
Jt was clearly a McAdoo meeting.
It is strongly a McAdoo delegation to
the 'Frisco convention. The Bourbons
sat up as closely to the labor interests
as good form would permit and with
out arousing neighborhood Jealousies
and suspicions. There was an organ
ized move to keep down an industrial
I court expression. Even Sam Amidon,
I national committeeman and bitter
I enemy of Governor Allen, joined in
this move. A rank outsider sought to
break the slate. He was voted down
without debate.
If there was a mistake In the con
vention, it is probably chargeable to
Miles H. Mulroy of Hays, representa
tive from Ellis county. Mulroy voted
against the new court act. He wanted
on the Big Four. He had a strong or
ganized labor following. But when E.
K. Murphy of Leavenworth and Guy
T. Helvering of Marysvflle withdrew in
favor of Blair. Mulroy stood pat. Blair
won two to one. Mulroy's failure to
step aside did not help the labor cause
in the rural districts. f
Most Peaceful In Years.
In a general way the convention ran
more smoothly than any Democrat
meeting in many years. When a can
didate counted noses in advance of a
roll call and found there was trouble
ahead, there was a tendency to with
draw. This course saved bruises and
bumps and harsh thoughts which
sometimes are carried in a campaign.
It was an entirely different setting
than the one which faced the delegates
to Hutchinson in 1916. There the
party leaders eliminated the use of
gloves and sought to get to each other
with weapons which means prompt
and certain political annihilation, une
Wichita meeting showed the rare
Democrat trait of seeking to take care
of the business at hand ana give some
regard to November results.
Blllard Fight Died Early.
The J. B. Blllard resolution for light
wines and beer died in the committee
room. The Hodges-Shouse organiza
tions combined to beat the measure
and the former Topeka mayor and his
fr.erds did not carry their trouble be
fore the convention.
Advance dope had Indicated that
Mrs. Cora G. Lewis, of Kinsley, was
due for defeat. Her friends saw it
coming and pushed her aside before
the storm came. Mrs. Drennan, who
won the woman's place on the Big
Four, is the "wife of a railroad brother
hood member. Incidentally, by he
election of a woman, the Democrats
took advantage of the neglect of the
Republicans in their state convention
at Salina.
For Wilson and League.
Resolutions adopted by the Demo
crats praised the Wilson administra
tion and the league of nations and
swatted the Republican congress.
There was no mention of state Issues.
A delegate sought to eliminate the
declaration against military training.
The convention howled in protest and
promptly voted the delegate down.
The.i came the resolution amend
ment providing an expression against
the industrial court. It was here the
strength of convention organization
was shown. Chairman Martin shoved
the resolution to a prompt vote. It
failed probably, twenty to one. Kan
sas Democracy reserved judgment un
til us party council in August.
Third Term Action Hinted.
Twice during the Wichita festivities
there was an evidence of third term
issue in the campaign in a letter from
I
GRANDw?dd,adyayApr.27-28
GSATCK1A-K
Advance Tickets Reserved Tomorrow, 10 a. m.
Regular Seat Sale Opens Monday
President Wilson to Jouett Shouse, of
Kinsley, assistant secretary of the
treasury. The letter was read to the
convention. . ,
Thursday night J. "Ham" Lewis
former senator from Illinois, sounded
a third term possibility. He declared
the fight on Wilson had been made
because he is a Democrat not because
of the strength or weakness of his poli
cies. Such a course, he asserted, might
drive Wilson and the party to third
action for Wilson if McAdoo does not
win easily. The first evidence was a
veiled threat to make the league an
term plans. Lewis was introduced to
the Thursday night meeting by Sam
Amidon. The national committeeman
referred to the former senator as "the
next vice president of the United
States."
Governor Allen the Target.
Governor Allen was the target of
convention orators. Barney J. Sher
idan of Paola, temporary chairman,
spoke feelingly of Allen in the early
hours of the convention. -Later Sam
Amu'oii made a speech. Amidon
seemii'gly recalled all the things Sher
idan l-.ad forgotten or overlooked. He
flayed the governor for his attack of
the national administration. He sar
castically declared Governor Allen
had found fault with the selection of
harness for army horses, but had spent
more than $100 a ton for the digging
of coal which would "hot burn when it
came from the Pittsburg mines.
"Henry has been turning state's evi
dence." said Amidon. "I think he told
the truth when. In a speech in Novem
ber, 1913. he said: 'Get out of the
Republican party. Get out in a hurry.
You can always get back in.' "
Kansas Democrats showed concern
over the president's letter to Shouse.
urging that the league pact be made
the dominant issue of the campaign.
Whi'ie there was much enthusiasm
fo-.' Wilson In the convention, there
was little league conversation. The
letter m' read just before adjourn
ment. It is probable that 75 per cent
of the delegates did not hear the words
or grasD full text of the letter.
In point of numbers the convention
probably brought more delegates than
have attended a state political gather
in in manv years. But the dominant
feature of the convention was ability
of shrewd le3dership to steer the party
beyond the rocks which were so near
a half cozen possible rows.
Wilson's" Letter to Shouse.
President Wilson's appeal to Kansas
Democrats to aid in making the
Leasue of Nations a dominant issue in
the campaign was stated as follows in
his letter to Shouse:
"I eannnt heln thinkinc that the Party
Is to be congratulated on the fnet tUat it
has come to a year of exceptional oppor
tunity and duty. The Issue which 1t is our
duty "to raise, with the voters of the coun
try involves nothing less Uian the booor
of the United States and the redemption of
Its most solemn obligations, its obliga-
tiono to Its associates In toe great war ana
to mankind to whom it gave the most
explicit pledge that it went into the war
not merely to win a victory in arms, but
also to follow up that victory with the
establishment of such a concert of nations
as would guarantee the permanency of a
peace based on Justice. One of the greatest
Issues that Has fallen to a party to fiRht
for. It now falls to the Democratic party
to push to victory."

Delegations From Six Peoples
Are Presenting Petitions.
San Remo, April 22. The Egyptian
nationalist delegation has announced
it would present .demands for com
plete independence to the. council of
premiers.
Six delegations of peoples anxious to
obtain favorable decisions from the
peace conference arrived yesterday.
Representatives of Galicia said they
would ask revision of the treaty of
Versailles to ) change the decision
granting Poland a twenty-five year
protectorate over part of Galicia.
Montenegrins Want Freedom.
Montenegrins were to ask Immedi
ate discussion of the case of their na
tion, demanding that it be restored to
independence. Albanians were to pro
test that partition which set up the
Independent Georgian nation.
None of the delegations, were given,
an audience by the premiers today.
The council of premiers continued
discussion of the territorial clauses of
the treaty of peace with Turkey, de
fining her European boundaries, aid
later resumed discussion of Armenia,
the official statement tonight said.
Early in the session, it was learned,
the council examined again the mili
tary clause of the Turkish treaty,
especially those concerning the straits.
and approved them. Disposition, of
the Caucasus also was discussed.
The Cerman note, asking an army
of-200,000 instead of 100.000 allowed
by the treaty of Versailles, pointed
out that Germany not .being a mem
ber of the League of Nations, did not
have the advantage of the league pro
vision to protect members from ex
ternal aggression and that Germany
must have an army adequate for her
internal needs.
It reviewed at length the unsettled
condition in Germany, declaring the
established government must remain
complete master of affairs, with abil
ity to compel rebels to disarm, if it
was to stand. With an army of 100,-
000 the Germans argued the govern
ment could not possibly stand should
the Bolshevist elements start a new
revolution.

Missouri Anti-League Senator
Repudiated by Democrats.
Party Gfbes on Record for Pact
"Without Rserrations."
Joplin, April 23. The Democratic
state convention in session here this
morning voted to reject the selection
of United States Senator James A.
Reed, as district delegate to th na
tional convention and to return his
name to the Fifth district caucus
which nominated him.
The vote was 1,070 to 490. It came
as the climax to an all night session
of the convention in which wrangling
and filibustering played a prominent
part. x
Spirited debate preceded the roll
call. The Fifth district delegation
(Kansas City and Jackson county) and
the St. Louis delegations, with the ex
ception of two wards, cast their bal
lots against the measure.
The convention early today elected
the following named men delegates at
large to the national convention at
San Francisco: Gov. Frederick D.
Gardner. Judge W. W. Graves of Jef
ferson City; Dr. Surris A. Jenkins,
Kansas City ,and Judge John S. Far
rington, Springfield. Charles M. Hay,
St. Louis, and W. T. Kemper, Kansas
City, were defeated. Immediately fol
lowing announcement of the election
of the men the convention took up the
election of the four women delegates
at large.
Pandemonium greeted the simulta
neous reports of majority and minor
ity members of the resolutions com
mittee touching on the League of Na
tions covenant, the former being" an
endorsement "without reservations,
which tend to weaken or nullify the
pact." while the latter opposed the
league and objected to instructing the
Missouri delegation to the national
convention to vote for a plank in the
national platform endorsing the
league, as recommended by the major
ity report.
Cheers and jeers kept the conven
tion in ah uproar which Frank Mc
Davld, Springfield, permanent chair
man, was unable to quell. When a
semblance of order was again ob
tained, the majority report was
adopted.
The convention adjourned sine die
at S:25 o'clock this morning.

TODAY'S-MARKET REPORTS
Chicaeo. Anril 23. CORN Urgent Euro
pean demand for breadstuffi attracted eon.
sTderable notice today as a bullish factor
in the corn market. Besides, cold wet
veather tended further to strengthen
prices. Financial conditions received much
less attention than has -been the rule of
late. Opening quotations, which ranged
from lc decline to ,c advance with May
$L66 to S1.67 and July $1.58 to $1.591.
were followed by a decided general npturu
and then something of a reaction.
OATS Oats ascended with greater swift
ness than corn, owing more to lack of offer
ings than any great buying. Arrer opening
to 2c up including July at 85c to 86c,
the market climbed a little further before
