Convention Amusing
Admires the System, the "Grand Opera" Crowd

By International News Service.
CHICAGO, Juno IS. The arrange

zealous salesman who was kicked
downstairs no matter what your
political preferences you could not
bvit admire the system. There waa no
lam at the doors, and none m the streets,
when y.m reached the hall you were

Then they directed you where to enter.,
There were enough policemen, so they
kept the crowd well back, so there was
no Jostle within the sacred precintCS. Vf
the doors you were again carefully looked

who were need'.esslv conversational, walk
ing arm In arm. These men were gently
but lirmly turned back, after the patrol
man had called rhe captain.
The men had tickets, all right, but the
parties were In a condition where they
might make a needless amount of noise;
and 1 he noise of this convention must bl
simultaneous. That !s to say. there must
be no shouting off key. The vibrations
must be inspired by political enthusiasm
and not by mere vulgar boosa.
The policemen had no clubs in sicht.
They wore white gloves. Their shoes
were sblneflL They were clean-shaven,
brushed and groomed. They were picked

And so the throne passed quietly Into
the great building, and at every aisle
were more policemen.
Then there were lady polieenrn who
asked the ladles to remove their hats
and be careful about hatpins.
A Grand Opera Crowd.
It was a throng of which America
micht well be proud. There wasn't a
poor man n sight certainly not a poor
devil. Everybody was well dressed, well
fed, shincd. manictired.
The proletariat, the saii CUlottSj the
plebeian, the agrarian, were not )n evi
dence. Tickets were wort'i forty dollars
apie. e. h was a grand opera crowd.
If there was air. one wirh elbows, slight
