Colonel Kerens Wants Senatorship
Left to Republican
Make Positive Announcement That
They Can Control Conven
tion A Fight Is
Another "harmony" conference was held
yesterday under the auspices of Republican
National Committeeman Kerens. It was a
sequel to the conference in the. offices of
the Missouri Pacific, May 23, when the work
of the State Convention was mapped out by
a half dozen of the Republican bosses.
Yesterday's conference was a strictly Ker
ens affair. At its. conclusion, the men who
had been active In It, announc"d positively
that the State Convention would take no
action upon the United States senatorship.
They claimed to speak by the card In
speeches which were delivered in the meet
ing, ih;y promised Colonci Kerens that they
would prevent enough delegates taking ac
tion on the senatorship to keep the Atkins
faction from so much as getting the subject
before the convention
If the Kerens faction is successful there
will be harmony with a meat ax in the con
vention. The men who are determined to
wipe an ay the memory of the Phelps
Kerens deal claim that they will fight to tho
last lltch The men who were the guests
of Colonel Kerens yesterday announced
them&elves as equally determined to quell
any insubordination to the lobby "agree
ment" made three weeks ago
Colonel Kerens planned his conference
jesterday better than the one which mi
held in the Missouri Pacific office. In the
last week he has sent out invitations to all
his postmaster friends throughout the State
abking tnem to come to St. liouls jester
day. All were prov ided with transportation.
They began dropping Into the city in tho
morning. The Kerens headquarters were
fairly crowded with tho friends of the na
tional committeeman
At noon he entertained them at lunch in
the ladles' ordinary of the Planters Hotel.
The lunch was strictly informal, and no
speeches were made There was plenty of
good cheer, as the Colonel Is considered one
of the best entertainers In the State.
After the dinner at the Planters, the
guests went over to the ofllce of Colonel
Kerens, In the Third National Bank build

Major Bittinger had made his speech out
lining his objections to the convention tak
ing action on the United States Senatorship
nearly every one of those present gave a
statement showing the exact condition of

himself as apposed to the naming of a sen

Fifteenth Ward, his delegation receiving 400
vptts to 122 for the regular delegation. Only
one-half of the Judges signed the returns,
so that the State Convention will take ac
tion. The Lloyd-Comfort delegation In the
Twentj -second Ward won b) a majority
of 36, the vote oeing 315 to 279, which was
a great deal closer than the political proph
ets had forecasted.
Friends of Colonci Kerens rejoiced last
night. They more than held their own.
Though the result was close in some of the
wards, the superior manipulation of the
practical politicians who were aligned with
the Kerens fiction showed Itself at every
stage of the game, excepting In the Twentj
flfth Ward, where George P. Weinbrenner
repeated his old feat of carrying the ward
two to one.
Tho polls wre not opened until after E
p m. in this ward, and It is claimed that
tho Citizens' faction made no effort to
show strength However, when the ballot
boxes were opened the vote In the pre
cinct was 73 to 113 in favor of the Citi
zens' delegation.
Three negroes and a white man were ar
rested In the afternoon .it the polling place
of the Second Prccir.ct of the Twentj -fifth
Ward. They were charged with repeating.
The ballot boxes from this precinct did not
appear at the office of the Election Commis
sioners until after 11, the Judges and clerks
having counted the ballots five or six times
The successful ticket In this vvaid Is per
haps the strongest delegation which will
be In the State Convention. It Includes
George P. Weinbrenner, Benjamin J. Taus

E. Udell, Cjrus P. Walbridgo, Prince Buck
ner. William Ambruster and William E.

arc Charles Clafiln Allen. Allen C. Orrick,
George C. Hitchcock, R. H. Sjdnot and
Henry Kuhn.
Hcnrj Westermann, who defeatod the
Filley-Walker delegation In the Fourth
Ward, was deploring the efforts which he
put forth to carry the ward. He spent
money liberally and kept things livelj fpr
a big crowd of negroes the night before
Henry Stelncamp, on of the Schllngman
Judges, refused to sign the returns in the
First Precinct of the Fifteenth, claiming
that some of the ballots were folded in
such a. manner that they wire fraudulent.
A couple of bunches witn ten ballots were
wrapped together. Without them, Flor
sheim was beaten In that precinct Dy a
vote of 85 to 84. With them, he received M
votes, to which number the two Judges
signed. Schlingman's Judge In the Second
Precinct also refused to sign, so that the
State Convntion will also tav a chance
at this contest
The total number of votes cast In the
primary was 6,395. The number of ballots
cast in the seven contested wards was 4,665.
Of these, the Kerens faction received 2,656
and the Akins faction 1,970. a majority of
The result of the prim-try was not a sur

predicted that Kerens would control the
majority of the delegates which are taken
to the convention from this city. If none

Exposition Management Secures Territory South of Washington Uni
versity Tract for Immense Reservoir, Hotel, Agricultural and
Horticultural Palaces, Live Stock Exhibit and Interna
tional Encampment of Troops Problem for Ad
ditional Room for the Fair Xow Sohed.
Acquirement by the World's Fair man
agement of 360 acres of land 1 ing immedi
ately south of the Washington University
tract has solved the problem presented by
the imperative necessity of additional ter
ritory for the Exposition site. Possession
of 1,100 acres. Including the Forest Park
section and the Washington Universltj
property, has enabled the Exposition offi
cials to definitely locate all of tht buildings
and outer exhibits for which space was
A reservoir of twenty acres, with a ca
pacltj' of S.000,0u0 gallons, and a hotel to
accommodate about 5,000 guests, are the
llrBt plects of work on the new ground to
which the Department of Works will direct
its attention. The reservoir will be formed
by the construction of a dam across a dry
arm of the River des Feres.
Leases held by the Exposition Company
from the various private Interests in the
acquired territory have been obtained at
an annual rental of less than J2Q0 for each
individual piece of propertj-. Negotiations
for 1,M0 feet more op the Tesson property
nre now being conducted bj President Fran
cis with the heirs of that estate.
The possession of the new area docs not
Interrupt the negotiations which are in
progress between the owners of the Catlln
tract and the Exposition authorities It
was learned last night on excellent author
ity that the Joint meetings between West
End propertj' owners, citj- officials, repre
sentatives of the Catlln tract and World's
Fair Directors, give indication that the
tracks of the Rock Island will be removed
from the Catlln tract in exchange for the
lease of that property to the Exposition
The plan as outlined by a World's Fair
official, contemplates the depression of the
Rock Island and Wabash tracks In a new
right-of-waj- In Forest Park, as announced
In The Republic, and the building of an
underground station near where Llndell pa
vilion now stands.
The new territory now under control of
the Exposition Companj comprises the
S'tinker property of 0 acres, with a front
age of 1,200 feet along Sklnker road the
Bucharan tract of 80 acres, with a frontage
of 1,100 feet on the same street; the De
Munn tract of 101 acre with a frontage of
1,500 fet; the Mnfntt propertj of 100 acres
with a frontage of 1500 feet, running
south to Clajton road and a narrow strip
of ground on the other side of Clajton
road belonging to the same estate. Nego
tiations are In progress with Mrs. Laura
Tesson for only 1.500 feet of her propertj
where it fronts on Sklnker road. All the
new terrltorj- extendi 4 200 feet west of
Sklnker read to Pennsjlvanla avenue.
If the depth of 1 5 feet, required on the
Tesson propertj Is secured bj- President
Trancls It is InttndeO to devote six or
seven acre3 on the end abutting Sklnker
road to the French national pavilion aid
landscape settings, which Commissioner
General Lagrave will build there The
twentj" acres reserved for a reservoir will
occupy the ravine which extends southwest
from the Tesson property across the other
tracts. The construction of this reservoir
was made Imperative for two reasons.
Insurance companies demand that a sup
plj of S.VOO.UOO to 5,000 OuO gallons of water
be provided by the Fair authorities to af
ford adequate protection against tire. The
natural slipe Of the gulch that Is to form
the bed of the resirvulr is toward the east,
where the main picture of the Exposition
stands in the Forest Park reserve. The en
tire force of the water is, therefore, against
the dam, which will be erected of solid ma
sonrj acrobs the eastern end of the ulcn.
'lliis will furnish the tremendous pressure
that mLkes pumps unnecessary.
Around the reservoir will be grouped the
thirty-five acres on wblcn the FiUnivlue
exhibit will be placed The surface ot the
reservoir will give a lake expanse for the
proposed aquatic sports of tne South Sea
Islanders, who will make up one of the
most attractive sections of that display.
The United States LUe-bavmg Station, an
exhibit for which the Government has ap
approprlated JS.MO, will also be located on
the shores of the lake. Landscape effects
will be used to beautltj the surroundings.
On the wooded plateau to the south of
the lake will rise the giant Agricultural
Palace, covering thirty acres of land. Li
rector of Works Taj lor has reserved that
much space for the building, with fifty
acres for the Horticultural Palace, ten
acres for the Government's experimental
farm and ICO acres for the live stock ex
hibit. Canada will eret her national pa
vilion near the live stock arils, at the
special request made by Commissioner
Moro than seventy acres are left on the
plateau for other purposes. About seventy
nvo acre will be reserved near Sklnker
road and Clayton road for an international
encampment of troops and their barracks.
The mining camp proposed by Colorado will
have five to six acres near the same place.
The Government's Indian exhibit has been,
placed in the same localitj-, and a conces-
fion for the presentation of the "Eruption
of Mont Pelee" has been reserved at that
end of the new territory.
The great-hotel structure which the Fair
management proposes to erect at the north
west corner of Clayton and Sklnker roads
will be conducted exclusively under the
I -7-TI r-r J
7-0rg-7Vr- - jAyET
direction of agents of the Exposition and
the earnings will revert to the treasury of
the Fair. It will be a temporary structure,
designed to accommodate at least 4,000 to
5.0M guests who desire to be near the Ex
position. The strip across Clayton road and
extending from Sklnker road to Pennsylva
nia avenue gives the Exposition control
of both sides of tint thoroughfare, thereby
preventing encroachments upon the site on
that side bj- private interest
It has been arranged with the Belt Line,
controlled bj the Terminal Raltwaj- Asoda
tlcn.to extend Its present terminals from tb
V, abash tracks near De Hodlamcnt to the
west of the new territory so that freight
for that part of the grounds may be de
livered from the West. The Colorado Line
of the Rock Island, under the negotiations
now In progress, would rcma'n on the Catlln
tract until after the construction period of
the Exposition had ended, when they would
be removed.
Passenger traffic over th Rock Island,
after the opening of the Exposition peiij.l.
will come Into the site, through the sub
waj across the north end of Forest Park,

officials and property ownes, are suc;cs

would run across the Catlln trct. ji thtf
success of this plan It 3 mulers'ooa ic's
the securing of the Cutlin fact by the
World s Fair Coirp-ri.
Final disposition of the Education and So
cial Economj palaces will also depend on
the acquirement of the Catlln tract. If the
lea"e Is obtained bj- the BrposlUon com-pnnj-,
these palaces will be located on either
side of the grand court, directly In front
of the Palaco of Varied Industries and Man
ufactures. The monumental gateway to the
Exposition would then be placed directly
at the north Prtd of the court. It would ret
partly on the Forest Park section of the site
and Llndell boulevard. The plans of the cit
izens' conference contemplate the widening
of Llndell boulevard by adding fifteen feet
to the street from the Catlln tract and the
same number of feet from Forest Park. The
boulevard would then end at the gateway.
No provision has jet been made for the
"Midway." A question ot the percentages
which the prospective concesslonnalres are
willing to give the Exposition has prevent
ed the management from placing the
amusement feature of the Fair on the
newly acquired territory to the west. If
the "Midway" can be located near the front
of the Fair, the concesslonnalres are willing
to give 25 per cent of their earnings. If It
is pushed to one side, they are willing to
give only 15 per cent- The Exposition man
agement recognizes that the company's 13
per cent for a le"s choice location of the
"Midway" would mean a smaller Income
for the companj-, and It Is therefore desired
to secure some location near the front of
the Fair The Catln tract suggests to the
management a perfect solution of the
"MIdwav" problem. If It can be obtained by
lease. It has been learned that the
Catlln tract owners would treat with
the Fair people on reasonable terms. If the
removal of the railway tracks Is made a
part of the agreement.
