The sky will be cloudless and a gentle breeze from the South will blow thrbughout tlie day.

Only alonjrnhe Atlantic Co'ast. In the extreme Tipper MlsslsjInr)lC'alIey, and In the Northwest, arc showers falling.

' "Tony" Stuover showed his mettle by beating State Senator John Sartorious and Gussie Busch in the Eighth Ward fight. Steuver was determined to punish Sar torlous for his action in splitting the dele gation In the spring primaries, and took .the first opportunity to do so. Sartorious will be succeeded as committeeman by Joseph A. Helderle. Andy Sheridan beat George Gunsollls for committeeman from the First Ward. This fight was managed by Sheridan and State Senator William B. Klncaly. Peter Walsh will go back In the committee from the Second.

Lemp. N. W. McLeod, Thomas J. Mul vihill. John C. Roberts. Election Commis sioner James McCaffery. Poli'.c Commis sioner Richard Hanlon, Jr.. anl others. They were in conference late into he night. ' It In realized that tlie Butlers will try to control the convention in their interests by bringing a number of contests. Jimmy Miles of the Third and Phil Dwyer of the Twenty-sixth announced as much last night. However, the law Is plain on the subject, and those delegates holding cre dentials from the Board of Election Com missioners will be entitled to seats in the preliminary organization, and no others. City Chairman John R. McCarthy will call the convention to order at 10:30 o'clock. If any attempts to raise a disturbance are made, the police will be on hand to quell disturbances. Their work yesterday in keeping down disorder was so excellent that it Is their intention to continue o to day. Arrests were made In the Third Ward for the assault on policemen early in the day. "The drag net was put out and a score of suspects brought In for the Chief. Patrolman Patrick Somcrs of tlie Fourth District was still confined .to his bed and iras unable to Identify any of his aTalt ants. Some of them were released last night. TROUBLE IX TIIE TWENTY-SIXTH.

He said he had a letter rrom the politician and handed It to me. This letter 1 now hate.

There are many other thl" I can and will tell later on, but thii will do now. This. In brief, is my story and the confession of my In famy.

It seems helpless. If I know anything I could do that I hae not done to arouse the people of this cltv and the people of this State to the necessity of patting a etop to corrurtlot.

I don't want to preach, but I do want to sound the alarm to the public as one would to a friend wboe bouse Is on tire. A few weeks ago Butler told us we could either get a continuance until a new Circuit Attorney was elected, that his man -would be be cut In, and our casa would bo dlimissed. or we could plead guilty and stay In Jail until next January, and he would then see that wo Wirhav. determined not to be under his do minion any longer.
