The woman suffra gist will make, a powerful effort to force the Ilemocratlc party to a definite ttand. rrohtbltlon advocates will make medicine. There might he a row be tween preparedness advocates ami pad flats.

Olynn of New York having been selected o temporary chair man and keynoter and Senator James of Kentucky us permanent chairman. There Is much more Interest displayed as to what will take place In the na tional committee after the rennmlnatlona arc made and the business of ratifying Mr. Wlleon'a administration la accom plished. William V, MeCombs, who fought so sturdily against the Clark forces at Hal tlmore. and whose astute mind foresaw and checked every dangerous move made by Ileal st and Hark, Is anxluua to re tire. Ills friend say he hita been none too well treated by the Administration. The mounting Influence, of William (. McAriiio made the situation Impniwlbte for Mr Mcfombs. Therefore ho will Insist that a successor be elected by mo committee. Mnj .Name C'unimlngs. Tho committeemen want to name one of tliclr company Homer Cummlngs of Connecticut for chairman. They are afraid th.it the President wilt call In an outsider, mid while they are tint so com fwctly nrunnUrd as the late Old lluard of tho Republicans, they want to keep the cainpalgn management In the family. However, there continues to bo talk of Col K.lward M. House. Rome, of the Icadri have, heard hint that the tTesl rirnt wants House.

DEMOCRATS DENY WILSON WILL BOSS THE CONVENTION Platform to Be a Composite Affair With McCombs's Ideas in It Federal Reserve Acts and Pros perity Will Be Dwelt Upon. St. t,ouis, Juno 11. There Is a dis position on the part of the National Committeemen and delegates, who have arrived here for the convention next Wednesday to resent u remark fre quently heard about the hotel corridors to tho effect that so far as the conven tion Is concerned the book Is closed. A Democrat naturally opposes whatever smacks of the cut and dried. Ills blood demands a contest of some kind, even If It Is well known In advance what the result will be. Ho It happens that the platform of ths party Is being discussed hera Just as If President Wilson were not going to blats a trail so wide that a blind donkey could follow It. It la admitted that he will, "suggest" the substance of a majority of the planks, while It Is maintained that hi frequent conferences with Henator William J. Htone and with rrembers of the Cabinet show an earnest Indication not to dictate what shall be done here, As those n the ground view It, Ben iitor Htone will come down from French l.lck to-morrow or Tuesday with a lot of facts and a Judicial mind. He Is pre pared to presld over the deliberations of the committee on resolutions, to hear everybody and then to lead the commit teemen gently along to a conclusion that the minds of the President and his party leaders ara In perfect accord on every Issue of the day. Expansion of MrCombi't Idea. When the platform Is ready for the convention It Is expected that It will rep resent an expansion of that adopted by the Missouri Democratic convention. That particular ptatfomt was written by National chairman William F. MeCombs, It was learned to-day. It Is agreed that when the President mid Henator Stone have brought to bear upon II their Intimate knowledge of the miittera with which It deals the finished document will give the country not only a competent review of what has been accomplished by the party but also some Indications of the motives that have actuated the President and his advisers In adopting certain policies. This will be particularly true. It Is aaserted. In the case of the Mexican problem. It was pointed out by one who Is In the confidence of the Prcildent that ho has designedly refrained from telling the country why he did certain things or did not do certain things In Mexico, and the Information wis vouchsafed that when the President did spak, either through the platform or on some later occasion, his Justification of his Mexican P"llcy would answer completely the charge that he has failed In his rights an,' his duties both In traanl to the Mexican pcoi and to the I'nlted State". Hec.iuse of the allegation that Mexico U the weakest spot in the present Ad ministration the patty leaders look for nil extensle plank on the subject. The Missouri platform deol.red that the President, wiillo standing steadfast at-Hln-t the Influences that would hae provoked 'i tr with Mexico for selflh purposes acted with xlgor ar.d prompt ness when .itltens of Columbus.

I oilier coin- mltteemeii believe that the suffragists will be satisfied with the Democrat!.' party's attitude. The snowball translated to a certain region Is being generally offered In de. serlntion of the chances which a pro. hlbitlnn plank haa of getting into the Democrallo platform. The question is often asked here whether or not Mr. Rryan will get an oppoilunlty to advertise grape Juice and the answer always Is that Mr. Itryaii Is neither a delegate nor an alternate, hut merely n n porter, and that since only unanimous consent would give lilin the floor of the convention surxly there would arise some, white from among the thousand and moro delegate u saving voice, Brian' Hold Weakened. Committeemen here do not look for Mr. Hryan'a participation In the con vention's, activities. Democrats who confess their brotherly love for him ad mit that his hold on the party has weak ened and lhat bis prestige was never quite so low Reports from Lincoln sy that Nebraska's delegation of six teen Is evenly divided In loyalty to Mr. Hryan anil Senator Hitchcock, hut It was declared hern to-day that not a man In the delegation would stand up for the Commoner as they used to do In the old das. He may appear before the resolution cntnmlllee, but II Is In. iluiated that tin- coiiiiostlou of that coiniulttee Insures an early death to any suggestions In favor either of prohibi tion or paclllsin, Hy far the larger portion or Hie plat form will be covered with cummenda i x tlons of the domestic policies of the Wilson Administration. Great construc tive measures such as the currency law, the Income tax law, the establish ment of the Federal Trade Commission, the rural credits bill and the bill for a Government owned merchant marine will be plastered with encomiums. Thn establishment of the Federal Reserve Hoard will be pointed to with pride and any suggestion of further tin kering with tha money problem will be viewed with alarm. From all Indh a tlons the currency measure Is the one by which the present Administration, mindful of certain 'premonitions that "the Democratic campaign managers will have to hold a waks over every nlckl they spend this year," will lay great store. This plank will be relied on not only to catch and hold the thought of the big business men of the country but also as an example par excellence of how the Democratic party lives up to Its promises. leaders here are hoping quietly that a genius for words will get around other things that are not such good examples of this alleged charac teristic of the party. Tariff and Prosperity. No one doubts that President Wilson and the platform makers In their turn will convey to a thoughtful people the Information that tho Underwood tariff law Is the best ever put on the statute books. Just as much of the prosperity of the country as the traffic will bear witness will be attributed to the de. structlon of those schedules which Mr Underwood and Benator Simmons at tacked during the special session of 191. There Is a belief that the flat declara tlon of KM! against all tariffs except those for revenue purposes will be modi fied somewhat In favor of protection for Infant Industries that sprang Into be Ing with the routing of the European war and the establishment of which was very frankly approved and slnrerely en couraged by the President. It Is pointed out that the President has said that he did not consider the present tariff law as the final word of the party on the subect As for the Re publican assertion that Imports have In creased In iplte of the war and that the cost of living has not been reduced Dem ocrats here look for an answering plank to the effect that prosperity is nation wide, that tc great amount of money In the country makes high prices In evitable, but does not affect the relative values, and that the good things have In fact been passed around It Is believed that measures to prevent dumping and unfair competition after the close of the war will 1 advocated Condition of Huslures. Thoe who r-ee that In spite of all the talk about Americanism and prepared ness the real Issue of the campaign the Issue that will appeal to these who aren't paying much attention to tho war Is going to be the condition of business, expert the platform to observe with satisfaction that a Federal Trade Com mls'lon has been appointed, and a tariff commission Is under way, and that this Administration, particularly through Its Department of i winner.

ASKS WHAT HE WILL DO St. Ijovtn, June 11. Norman .... Mack, National Committeeman from New York, Issued a statement to-night attacking Justice Hughes for his failure to be spe cific In the statement which he made accepting the Republican nomination for the Presidency. Purthermoro Mr. Muck gave expres sion to a sentiment that has been more frequently expressed around the hotels during the last twenty-four hours than any other, and that Is, "Wlirro docs Jus tice Hughes stand on the subject of tho German American cltltenT' The National (.omtnlttecinan declares that Justice Hughes was the pet candi date of tho German Americana and he sks whether he la hitting at President Wilson or Col. Roosevelt vvhoil ho saya that he stands for "an Americanism that knows no ulterior purpose." Mr, Mack's statement follows. "The one great question which rival Presidential candidates must answer la, 'What would you do differently? How would you have run things better than President Wilson Iris done-. "Mr. Hughes In his statement of ac ceptance nowhere answers this question. His statement Is a plea In avoidance. Kltlier directly or hy Implication he ar raigns President Wilson upon all the points In controversy, but he gives us no bill of particulars us to whit, changes he would have made. "He speak.- of a 'national exigency,' to which it Is his 'paramount duty to re spond ' Heckling the Presld. nt does not constitute 'national .xlgrnc ,' although It may be deemed a partisan obligation. "Mr Hughe." sajs that he 'stands for in Americanism that known no ulterior purpose, for a patriotism that Is single and complete.' Hut Mr. Hughes, on the other hand, was the pet candidate: of those who put their nativity before their Americanism. "Were theo elements mistaken when they denounwJ President Wilson anil approved the candidacy of Justice Hughes'.' Which Is his sincere attitude his silence when these elements were booming him for the nomination or his avowal of complete patrlotlm now that the nomination has been achieved"' "What does he imply or charge when lie says that he stand" for 'an Ameri canism that knows no ulterior purpose" "Whom does he a.rus. tf ulterior purpose? Is he hitting at Pterbh-nt Wil son or at ex-President Uoocvef "Mr. Hughes demands 'adequate pro vlsiiii for national defence' and con demns 'the Inexcusable neglect that has been shown In this matter." HI. views In this regard arc expected, It Is said, to be acceptable If not attractive to Col. Roosevelt "Vet If there lias been inexcusable neglect' the Republican party Is chiefly responsible therefor, for It has enjo.vcd complete control in all but fhree Presi dential terms since the livil wsr.

SWING TO HUGHES BEGUN BY PROGRESSIVE LEADERS Henry Allen of Kansas Says Moose Have Been Put Out of Business Hear Roosevelt Declines to Head Third Ticket. Chicauo, June 11. Progressive party Icadcra began swinging Into line for Justice Hughes to-day, following the flrat good nlght'n sleep for a week. Henry Allen of Kansas, one of the strongest Roosevelt admirers In the. mid dle; West, declared himself In without tescrvutlona to-night. He waa for Hughes, he said, all over the lot, lie di dared thnt ev en with Roosevelt head ing ii third ticket Hughes, would carry Kansas, and c-itry It big "There's no chance to defeat llugh.s cither In Kansas or In the nation," said Mr. Allen, "Wei Progressives simply have, been J.UI out of business, but we still have an opportunity for service In supporting Justice Hughes. I believe the great ma jority of Progressive rank mid file of tho country will full In now." After declaring himself for the Repub lieu ntlcket Mr. Allen held a long con ference with Frank K. Hitchcock, the Hughes preconventlon general In chief. While Allen was declaring for Hughes it was learned that Victor Murdock, the It-elected national chaltmiin of the Moose organliatlon. had departed for China, In st, ad of the coast, nad that he does not Intend to return to tho United Stales before Ilex September. Colby Hard Hit-. H.ilnbrldg Colby of New York, one of the Moose Insuigenls, was .till Incon solable at u late hour yesterday. He did not want to be quoted, but let hla cli.ee friends know- that It would bo a hard pull for him to be for the Repub lican ticket He said he felt like sup porting President Wilson and doing It hard nml oiieitlv Willie the defeated and disappointed Frogr't-elV" leadeis were trying to hsik as pleasant ns (sisslble, they expiessctl tiie opinion thnt the Progressive parly, a a party, would tiot cut much of a flgt.ro In Ibe coming campaign. For tho sake of retaining the party organisation, tin thought was that probably some one would be named by the committee In place of Col. Roosevelt to head their ticket. One sup-cellon of the Insurgents: was thnt they might natiic Hughes to head their ticket and retain John CM, Parker ,.f lajulslumi fnr Vice-President In that way the party lUld be kept alive in the -southern State" without Injuring lliinii'sb ihanccs. A few of the more radical, however, were still insisting on u ttralght out Prcgreslve ticket, with Murdock, Gov. Joiitieott or some other leader as their candidate for Pr"ldetit stronv resentment against Col.
