B K- if RAISE ISSUE AS lOJlHIBITIflN Anti-In junction Plank Will Not Re Only Cause of Strife at Denver. CHAMBERLAIN IN RACE FOR THE SECOND PLACE Seating Arrangements Modified to Permit Accommodations for Many More. .DENVER, Colo., Juno 29. Tho fiirht over the anti-injunction plank iu the 'Democratic platform is not tho only struggle in which the committee on resolutions and possibb' the convention itself may ho involved. It developed today that the . prohibi tion question is to be brought lo the front and a desperate effort will be made to have a plnuk declaring in its favor placed In tho platform. The pro hibition issue will be headed by James Weaver of Iowa, who demanded of tho recent Democratic convention iu that State that it declare iu favor of prohi bition. General Weaver and his fol lowers were not successful in their ef forts in their own State, but nothing daunted by their failure, have made ar rangements lo bring th matter beforo the Democratic National convention. They claim, moreover, to have strong backing from a number of the South ern delegations which have roccntly passcd prohibition laws and it, is de clared confidently by General Weaver's adherents that 3f tho Democratic Na tional platform docs not contain a pro hibition plank it will ouly bo for tho reason that the hardest kind of fight ing has been unable to secure its adop tion. Anti-injunction Plank. The anti-injunction plank continues to provoke a largo amount of discus sion among such party leaders as havo already arrived for the convention. While opinions differ. as lo the exact, nature of the plank which should be adopted, all are of ono mind in saying that it shall be a definite and specific statement. Such members of the na tional committee as have discussed t-lio matter are a unit in Haying that the wording of the an li-in junction plank shall Jcavo no possible doubt in the mind of any reader astowherc the pa rty stands on this question! It. is not generally believed, how ever, that tho anti-injunction resolu tion will not provide for trials by jury in cases of contempt of court, or" favor in any way measures which might be construed as interfering with tho pre rogatives of the Federal courts. One New Namo Heard. Unly ono new name was mentioned loda3" as a vice-presidential possibility. This -was Gov. George E. Chamberlain of Oregon. He found much favor -with some of the party leaders and it is said that he will be personally accept able to Mr. Bryan Lf the latter is nom inated. Sponsors of the vice-presidential boom located ouleide of New York Slate claim to be greatly encouraged bv the fact that already five New York men have been mentioned as aspirants lo the vice-presidential nomination. They believe that with the New York delegation divided among that number of candidates, an outsider has a far better chance of securing the prize than would bo the case if the delegation from tho Empire State were standing solidly for a single man. Seating Arrangements. Tho committee oni convention ar rangements paid a visit today to the Auditorium, which was pregnant in re sults as far as increasing the seating , capacity of the hall is concerned, but which brought woe to Architect Willi son. That gentleman, with a keen pro fessional eye to tho beauty and finished character of his work, had arranged the seating capacity in such a way as to produco tho most pleasing effect on tho eye of the spectators. In so doing, however, he had left, a considerable amount of vacant floor space, much of which was in extra width given to the aisles. When the members of the com mittee visUed tho hall today their cj-es at once fastened upon the extent, of emplv floor and Tfoeer C. Sullivan of Illinois at onco asked why more chairs could not bo placed. "It would injure the scenic effect,' replied Architect Willison. Mr. Sullivan, in a single energetic Hcntoncc, gave vent to the opinion that what the committee desired was scats, se.its. and then more seats, and that scenic effect could take its chances or take itself to any place it chose to go. Sullivan Supported. The other members of tho committee, whoso lives are made a burden by the unceasing call for tickets, cordially supported the criticisms and conten tions of "Str. Sullivan and tho net result was that, tho seating capacity of the hall was at onco increased from the original number of 11.538 to more than 12,700. The members of the committee are now poring over blueprints in the effort to sec if thev cannot Htill fur ther increase tho possible number of ad mission?. The alterations suggested today also resulted in allowing 75 addi tional seats for members of the press. The local committee on convention arrangements, headed by flavor If. W. Spear. 0. "W. Franklin ami O. At. Day, members of tho Denver convention league, held a conference today with tho national committee relative lo tho number of seats lo bo allowed to the I people of Denver. They were given the . assurance that the city would be amply . provided for. . The national committee, which for ' several days has been roosting in i , 'cramped miartcrs on one of the upper , I Moors of the Brown Palace hotel, today moved into the more commodious quar- lers on the parlor floor, which it will : ceitpy until afLcr the convention has j adjourned. .j. .w.HI::H44HI:: :: i n i : : : 1 1 : i :! : -H-H-r-H-i-i-r-i-i-i'-i-i-H-i-i-H'-H": THE BIG MITT OF UTAH G.

M MI TIIAT Is Said inquisitors Have Com pleted Investigation of Fa mous Bank Robbery. OPINION IS DIVIDED AS TO THE INDICTMENTS i i Principals in Great Case Feel . Strain as Close of Case Approaches. Tuesday marks the close of the fed eral fiscal year. Tho United States grand jury is prepared to report on the famous Utah National Bank case that morning at 10 o'clock, just as soon as it can appear before Judgo Marshall. This was indicated Monday afternoon by those most familiar with tho case. Beside this fact, the grand hiry held no session Monday afternoon, and du ring tho morning it was in executive session more than half the time. Only tho presence of Theodore Ivytka served to interest tho jury. Mr. Kytka carries with him an interesting sot of apparatus, not the least of which is a special camera, which is used in his work. Had tho jury not finished its work Monday morning, and wore it not ready to re port Tuesday, Monday afternoon would not have been passed by as it was. Tho closing hours of tho jury's ses sion were devoted to an executive ses sion. The impression of the public on tho number of indictments lo be returned is decidedly divided. Somo quarters in sist that three indictments will be re turned; others hold but one. None but members of the grand jury and the dis trict attorney 's ofliee are actually awaro of the number of indictments. So far as the grand jury is concerned, it is thought that the case will bo ended Tuesday. In tho last moments, just beforo tho grand jury is ready to file, its report, there is a tenseness and a sympathetic nervousness that sweeps over those who have figured in the caso as tho prin cipal characters, and also ovor those who have followed tho case closely. It is almost akin lo the feeling at, tho closo of u race, but beside this suppressed excitement there is a fear, for nono know upon whom tho blow "will fall. With all this, oven when tho jury shall report and the indictments are returned, the absobitc guilt of the indicted will not bo settled until a court trial is held. Nor will I he evidence upon which tho jnr' based its assumptions be known until this evidence is submitted in a court of justice. ! MORE OIL PRODUCED THAN IS NOW NEEDED PINDLAY. O.. .Tn 20. James C.

Both wero closed at tho timo of tho disaster. Tho Swconcys lived just above the grocery sloro and the Diss mover family resided in an upper flat. All the victims wore in bod at tho timo. The elder Sweeney, his wife and daugh ter' and littlo Autouo Dissmejor were instantly killed. Tho baby's bod3' was blown through a window aud was found iu a tree. Fred Sweeney was hurled through another window and terribly bruised. Diedrich Dissmcvcr made his j I escape, but rushed back into the burning I houso and carried his wife out through tho flames, both being bndb- burned, j Causo and Motlvo Mystory. I The causo of tho explosion, as well as the motive for tho crime, is unknown. Thcorios that, coal oil kept in the gro cery or a leak in tho gas main might have wrecked tho structures proved to bo untenable, and it is now the belief of the police ,that dynamite was used. Johnson, tlio saloon keeper, says thoro j was a fight in the place last night, and ho thinks that somo ono involved in the trouble wns tho author of tho outrage. The. fact I hat a man named T. J. Gal lagher hold a joint lcaao of tho saloon with Johnson led lo tho rumor that tho building holongod to former Supervisor JnmcH L. Gallaghor, tho principal wit ness for the graft prosecution, whoso houses iu Oakland were recently dyna mited, but this proved untrue. The for mer supervisor has a brother of the samei name as tho Icshco of tho saloon, who 1b no relation, and Detectivo .Burns ! thinks thnt the man who caused tho explosion may have confused the men. This is admitted, however, to bo merely a surmise, and tho affair still remains a mystery. SOLDIERS ORDERED ID PRESERVE PEACE By Direction of President. Sec retary of War Stends Troops to Mexican Border. ACTION IS TAKEN AT REQUEST OF MEXICO Armed Force to Be Ready if More Revolutionists Should Cross the Border. WASHINGTON, June 29. By direc tion of President Roosevelt, Secretary of War Taft has issued ordors lo tho commanding general of the department of Texas, at San Antonio, to send a sufficient number of troops to Del Eio, El Paso, and other points in Texas to aid the civil authorities in preserving order. This action was docided upon as a result of the request from the Mexican government that tho United Stales do its utmost to prevent any violatiou of the neutrality laws. Tho request of the Mexican govern ment was referred to the attorney-general by the stato department, and the governor of Texas in the meantime was asked to aid in compelling obedience I to tho law. Tho order of tho President j sending troops to the border is under . stood to have been made upon the rec ' ommendation of tho attorney-general. I Brigadier General Mcryer, in command of tho department of "Texas, is author ' ized to ascertain the number of troops '. necessary at Del Rio and EI Paso, and also to send troops to any other points along the Mexico-Texas border if found ; advisable. Tho federal troops will act . under the direction of the United States marshal and the United States district ' attorney. The troops' presence will al so dp much to prevent any outbreaks .within United States territory, and will be of material assistanco in tho event . that revolutionists should cross tho j border. Del Rio is directly opposite I Las Vacas, Mexico, where the principal disturbances have occurred. REPORTS OF BLOODSHED APPEAR EXAGGERATED CITY OF MEXICO, June 20. Up to this ovening no news of any sort had been received at tho capitol that would indicate that there had been ropctitiou of tho disorders similar to thoso which occurred at tho towns of Yiesca and Las Vacas. On tho contrary, at the depart ments of tho interior, war and state, the stalemout was made that absolute quiot reigns iu tho regions where tho two small bands had boon operating. Through private telegrams of inquiry received hero this evening it was made evident that untruthful and sensational reports relating (0 captures and assaults were iu circulation in the United States. Ono story was to tho effect that tho town of Jiminez, a place of about 11,000 inhabitants, had been assaulted and captured by revolutionists. At the in terior department and at the office of tho president of the Mexican Ceutral railway tho correspondent of Iho Asso ciated Press was assured that the report was absolutely untrue. A telegram sent to Jiminez was answered bv ono of the officers at thai, place in tlio following laconic language: "Have not seen any revolutionists around in the last few" days. If they captured the town tkey overlooked tho telegraph office." EFFORT BEING MADE TO SURROUND INSURGENTS EL .PASO. Texas, Juno 29.

Candidate Says No Decision IK Will Be Reached Until Meet- I Bp ing to Be Held July 8. 1 WASHINGTON. June 29. Secretary Taft today successfully combined his UhBj official duties with politics. His divcrsi- I'Hft Hed abilities never had a better illus- u&H'' : tration than they had from 11 o'clock tS'TH! this morning until G o'clock tonight. Ac intervals during that period he dis- ItRiM cussed the most intricate problems jl arising in the war department and con- ' f erred with political friends and ad- ''QH': visers -respecting the most delicate af- .'MpJ.N fairs of tho approaching political cam- MHir pa"". , -Mm? By far the most important confer- ivii.S once of the day in genuine interest was that which he had this afternoon "with H; a delegation representing the political ? UBi1 organization of the Republican party in n3! ?' his home stato of Ohio. Walter Brown, iwlMi chairman of tho Republican stale cen- "'HSli" tral committee; Henri' Williams, chair- -rB man of tho Republican state executive 1 committee, and N. A. Gilbert, state aud- H:.; itor, came to Washington to urge See.v H Var-: tary Taft favorably to consider Arthur J K-t! T. Vorys in the selection of a national , m , v chairman. '. ffim ,i Strong Plea for Vorys. ""'JiB '1 They discussed tho matter with Sec- 'J i I rotary Taft at considerable lcuglh, in- mm dicating to him that the appointment " fwm , of Mr. Vorys meant much to the Re- KlM 1 publican organization in Ohio. They "-Mi . expressed an apprehension that tho se- , :iM V lection of Mr. Hitchcock, for instance, 'tfM or almost anybody else than Mr. Vorys, . tGK v might tend to disrupt tho organization : livB v in Ohio, which largely had been built ' I jf! f up by Mr. Vorys. At the conclusion of lli tho conference," although Secretary Taft mm i j did not indicate to tho delegation what , Wm :,. his intentions were, ho authorized tho "I'm members to telegraph to Mr. Vorys re- ym MuncHmr lihn to enmn to Washington ffw : nnd meet him on next Wednesday. I ml . Secretary Taft. when asked this ove- I 'jfj uing what likely might be the nature M K; of Iho conference with Mr. Vorys; re- M ijl;' plied laughingly: 4flir li "Well, if any. wo shall talk somo politics, oven though tho weatlior bo JM- -II hot-" ,. :! ''Wlieu will you sec Mr. Hitchcock?"' VM Iho secretary was asked. aJil "I understand," ho replied, "that i-liiFK Mr. Hitchcock is in the city., but I 1 jjal' have not seen him, and I shall not sec him until I nm a private citizen. To- T-B-ll morrow I shall bo so deeply engrossed r'i - with the departmental matters which ,f:-m.' I am trying to clear up for my succes- J i ; sor.

He said that he expected to jr havo a conference with Secretary Taft ' S I in a day or two, but pending that in- '& I- lerviow ho could say nothing. ' TnB Every effort was today made to learn I - U something definite respecting the choice a jM. of a national chairman, but Secretary fBt Taft himself this afternoon said: I W "No announcement concerning tho j yO national chairmanship will be made un- ( "T.r til I have conferred further with the I J 'mi subcommittee of the national commit- ' i' too.
