Anti-In junction Plank Will Not
Re Only Cause of Strife
at Denver.
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 :

Is Said inquisitors Have Com
pleted Investigation of Fa
mous Bank Robbery.
Principals in Great Case Feel
. Strain as Close of Case
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
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.

Diedrich Dissmcyor, aged 2-1.
Thomas Hart, fireman.
The explosion took place in tho build
ing occupied as a grocei' store aud
saloon by John Swoeue3' and S. F. John
son. 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.
By Direction of President. Sec
retary of War Stends Troops
to Mexican Border.
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.
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."
EL .PASO. Texas, Juno 29. Accord
ing to information from a reliable
source, ofticial advices have been re

2500 federal troops sent to Torreon,
Coahuila, havo taken the field in an
effort to surround tho parties believed
to bo responsible for tho attacks on
Viesca and Hacienda Matamoros.
General Villar of the third military
zone is in command of the troops in
the field, and according to the Mexico
City Record, arriving here tonight, wthe

of Mr. Vorys meant much to the Re- KlM 1

might tend to disrupt tho organization : livB v
