NO 29 ICAW EVE OF THE CONVENTION TWO POINTS UNSETTLED The Only Certain Thing is the Nomination of Secretary Taft The Vice-Presidential and Tlatform Situations Cloud ier. Than They Seemed Twenty-four Hours Ago. W. S. Sturgis National Committeeman lor Arizona. Chicago, June 13. The eve of the republican national convention finds Chicago on , tiptoe with anticipation, with 'final preparations well matured for the candidates and the platform, except the ever doubtful vice presi dency and with the whole city astir with these tumultuous scenes which usher in a national convention. Tonight the streets are ablaze with lights. Flag day brought forth a wealth of color in he tall buildings. The. bands tonight vie with the glee clubs in the packed headquarters of the candidates, and the open air. Marching clubs in fastastic regalia pa- rade the main thoroughfares, singing Ian, Tart, or Knox, Knox, and there is a universal pandemonium which befits the night before a nation al convention. The main force of the Invading army are now here leaders, followers, dele- gates in rank and file, marching clubs, glee clubs, bands and drum 'corps. The last state delegation from the far south arrived tonight. But while the din proceeds without the final preparations of the leaders" proceed within. Their plans are well laid, probably with better precision than has ever been known before a na tional convention met. Unless the un expected happens or the specture of a stampede rises from its grave, the con vention of 1908 will establish a record for the methodical execution of well established plans. Senator Burrows arrived today. In view of reports that the senator's speech omits a tribute to President Roosevelt it Is being conjectured to night that the senator will depart from his prepared text. With Mr. Burrows arrived Asher C. Hinds, the expert parliamentarian of congress, who will stand at Mr Burrows elbow. His gen ius is for . immediately solving the knottiest parliamentary tangle. Should morrow. Hinds will be relied upon to throw against it the full force of pre cedent and established procedure.

FRIEDMAN actual nomination for president is not liable to occur before Thursday. The business of today was divided chiefly between canvassing the states for the selection of officers and repre sentatives for the various committees. These selections will have a decisive influence in determining the complex ion of the various controlling commit tees of the convention. The caucuses today lcftxlitt? room to doubt that the Taft forces vill be substantial control of the organization which the full committees are assem- jbled. j Among the more Important state ! conferences today were those of Ohio. ,iova. Indiana and New York as each had some bearing on the, perplexing question of the vice presidency. Each of these gatherings brought forth an odd negative conclusion declaring not jto be in favor of any candidate for the vice presidency. Other state caucuses were equally fruitless in solving the vice presidential mystery which deep en3 as the ballot approaches. ' The Dolliver movement experienced! varying fortunes today. Early in the day it was reported that, the White House favored an Iowan either Dolli ver or Governor Cummins which sent Dolliver stock up with a bound. But this was offset by the action of the Ohio managers who are supposed to reflect's Taft's wishes, formally declar ing that the Taft forces are scrupu lously avoiding the support of any vice presidential candidate. Moreover. Chairman Perkins of the Iowa delegation, and Congressman Hepburn of Io,wa called on Ex-Gover nor Herrick, chairman of the Ohio rorceSj anj tney tol(1 nim positively that Dolliver could not and would not be a candidate. The movement for Sherman or some other New York man, was sim ilarly discontinued by a decision hy the state not to present a candidate for second place until Hughes' name is eliminated for the first place, either by ballots or by withdrawal. Congressman Parsons of New York in a telegram sent to the governor today sought to draw his attention to the opportuneness of his withdrawal. Governor Hughes Is reply said he saw Phoenix, Arizona.

The vice presi dential question continued today to maintain a puzzling position. It was presented In a new aspect almost every hour of the day, but at no time has it shown a disposition to become less complicated. Dolliver has been the center of the complication, and it was generally conceded that there would be no solution until he wan either nominated or entirely eliminat ed " from the equation. All told, the developments in the Dolliver candi dacy were not satisfactory. It was generally, conceded that Senator Long, still the champion of the Iowa sen ator, had siKkeh correctly when he expressed the opinion that time would be necessary to solve the Dolliver problem. The announcement that the presi dent would ask that Cummins be nominated, if Dolliver should not be, aroused interest, but the members of the Allison-Dolliver faction, would not for a moment consider that contin gency. If Dolliver should be eliminated, the contest will be between Fairbanks and Representative Sherman of New York. Both received much encouragement during the day. It is stated in behalf of Fairbanks that if nominated he would not accept. Speaking of the report that Pres ident Roosevelt had expressed a de sire for the nomination, of either Dolliver or Cummins for the vice presidency. Congressman Hepburn to night said in a conversation last Fri day with the president, the subject of the vice presidential nomination was discussed. His impression from the conversation was that the latter had no particular desire for Dolli ver to be the candidate. Moreover, he had no desire to express a preference in the matter. It was announcd at the Iowa head quarters tonight that Dolliver had ex pressed a preference for the nomina tion of Fairbanks. STURGIS, COMMITTEEMAN.

Chicago, June 15. Five of the most important planks of the republican platform formulated by President Roosevelt and Secretary Taft and drafted by Wade H. Ellis and now In possession of the prospective members of the resolutions, committee, for con sideration, have been given out. They are the planks relating to the trusts, anti-injunction, railroad rates, tariff revision and the currency. The fight (over the anti-Injunction plank promis 'es to be one of the features of the con tention. The preliminary skirmish on ; this plank In fact has been waged with intensity from the moment the provis ions of the plank became known. I Speaker Cannon directed the fight against the plank throughout the day , from his quarters at the Union League club. Just what progress has been ' made by the friends of the opponents ' of the provisions is one of the ques- Hons which will not be ascertained un til the plank Is finally passed upon In the committee. Mr. Hopkins, slated as chairman of the platform committee, Is known to favor the elimination of the plank from the platform. Failing in this, it is un derstood that he will favor muc h more mild expression on the question. It was reported to Mr. Cannon today that the delegations from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Illinois had formally declared against the injunction plank and ef forts to obtain similar action by other delegations gave promise of success. A compromise measure which the op ponents will urge if it becomes evident that a pronouncement on the subject will be included in the platform, has been determined upon. It will be a simple statement that the party be lieves that federal court procedure should be so amended as to provide against arbitrary orders being made by the court, but at the same time noth ing should be done to interfere with the authority of the court over its own orders. Those who are arguing for the elimination or amendment of the pro vision maintain that their policy, if foltowtd out will give the party many more votes than to make an injunction declaration. "For no matter what the republican party declares on the sub ject, the democratic party will surely go them one better" was the way it was expressed. From this viewpoint it is claimed that it Is better to say noth ing than to nut forth a weak or mean ingless declaration. The trust plank which first aroused some opposition, is now understood to be acceptable to all elements of the party. The explanation is that upon first reading, the plank seemed by ex emption extended to labor unions and farmers 'associations to free them from responsibility under the law. This is not the intention and the language of the plank upon closer scrutiny passed as unobjectionable. The plank in tends to pledge the party to establish affirmatively the doctrines that a far mers' union or a labor union, in fact any duly organized aggregation of in dividuals. Is not, from the simple fact of its organization and existence, il legal. Tills declaration was declared necessary to avoid the conflict of opin ion said to exist on the point. Recent decisions have been interpreted by some labor leaders as well as by a por tion of the legal fraternity as estab lishing the doctrines of illegality in the existence of such organizations. While It was the Intention of the framers of the plan to clear up that point, it was decidedly not their inten tion, so it was explained to go farther or to the extent of declaring exemption of such organizations for overt illegal acts. In this connection, it is not to be held an illegal act for a labor organiza tion to fix a price for which the labor of its members may be sold. BuMt is held to be illegal for such organiza tions to enforce a fixed price for labor through a bovcott, blacklist or other methods of force. Opposition to the tariff plank seems to have disappeared absolutely and the ground that the party has irrevocably pledged itself to tariff revision at a certain time along indicated lines. As to the railroad rate plank the op position will be keen on declaring in favor of the proposition of federal sup ervision of the issuance of stocks and bonds. Biit this phase of the fight has yet remained- under cover. The currency plank pledges the party to continue a- development of the subject, and the pledge, it will be claimed, is already in process of fulfillment in the existence of the cur rency commission. Important conferences on the plat form situation today embraced, first, that held this morning between Messrs. Cannon and Hopkins, follow- ed by a four hours' conference in the Auditorium Annex, participated in by Messrs. Hopkins, Long of Kansas, El lis and Kellogg. Stll further con Racycles H.S.

Adams St. Phone 1490 ferences were held during the even ing. President Gompcrs, accompanied by other members of the executive coun cil of the American Federation of Labor, paid their respects to Mr. Ellis during the day and gave notice that a definite demand would be. laid be fore the committee. What proposi tions are to be contained in the de mand of the labor leaders, he refused to divulge. A vigorous protest against the anti-Injunction plank was filed with Mr. Ellis y Geo. E.. Corey, pres ident of the National Commercial In dustrial League, representing the Commercial Travelers and the Manu facturers and Employers' Traveling Men. The plank in question, the pro test set3 forth, would constitute a sinister reflection upon the highest courts. The final touches to the resolutions will be made by a subcommittee which has already been practically decided upon. It will be composed of nine members and it Is said that at least six of these have been selected. These are: Messrs. Hopkins, chair man; Long of Kansas, Ellis, Crane, Payne and Dalzell. It Is intended that the subcommit tee shall Im composed of representa tives of various interests, but will be so composed as to make sure the pro tection of the central idea that the president's policies shall be endorsed in no half-hearted way. o 'TWAS A LONESOME DAY ON GRAVtSEND TRACK The New Anti-Gambling Laws Discouraging to Audiences.

A prominent rail road man arriving from Guaymas says it is reliably reported that troops numbering 4.000, under Gen. Torres, have surrounded the Yaquis in Bace tete mountains, about 100 miles from Torin,on the new line, in the strong hold to which they retired after the conference. The soldiers claim to hold all the water holes and expect to maintain the siege until they sur render. The Yaquis number 500 to 1,300, and are provided with suppUes given them by the government while waiting the arrangement of peace terms, and are well armed. It is considered that the present hostilities cannot last long. They will end in the extermination or surrender of the Yaquis and their deportation to Yucatan, with the possible alternative of disarmament and confinement in the district of South Ures, in Sonora.

Promoters of the Roosevelt boom movement now claim that they have secured the services of a delegate "from a state other than Alabama, that will be reached early In the roll call," to present the presi dent's name to the convention. j Ex-Representative Thomas W. Phil- J lips of New Castle, Pa., declared to night that Roosevelt's name would unquestionably lie sprung in the con vention, but he declined to give the delegate's name or the state he rep resents, even In part. These facts, he says, will remain a secret until the candidates are placed in nomination. The Roosevelt boomers are count ing on a stampede of Taft delegates to the president, if they can get the latter's name before the convention in a forceful manner. The opinion was expressed by Phillips tonight that the boom which he is engineering for Roosevelt is growing.

Four persons were drowned tonight when an auto mobile carrying a pleasure party of six became unmanageable and shot with wild speed down West Fifty sixth street and bounded from the open pier into North river. The machine turned over In the plunge from the pier, holding four vic tims fat in their seats. The dead are: Adeline Berlein, 19; Mrs. Rose Coleman, 23; John Coleman, aged S years; Virginia Knight, aged 8 years. The chauffeur. John BaiHer, was carried into the river with the machine but managed to free himself and swam to safety. John Nolan, one of the Party, jumped from the runaway ma chine as it neared the end of the dock. After taking the employer home to night Bailier invited his friends for a pleasure ride.

Write Us For Investments t GOIN OF THE REALM Navajo Silverware is as characteristic of the Navajo Indian as Navajo Blankets. No other Indians have these weaving and ham mering instincts. It Is hard to say where the Navajo derived his knowledge of the silversmith's hammer. But anyone who ha3 seen an Indian bracelet or an Indian necklace can not doubt for a mo ment that the knowledge is there in great quantity A Navajo is a superstitious animal. He thinks that the "Great Spirit" wields a mighty influence in this mundane sphere. Ho also thinks this Great Spirit objects to the removal of minerals from the earth. As a result of this belief you have never yet seen a piece of Navajo jewelry that was made of bullion silver. It la all made from coiitf. Mr. Navajo thinks that the punishment from the Great Spirit goes into the first man who works up the bullion and that after the Spir it has avenged himself upon these unsuspecting sons of the pale face he can proceed to cut any kind of dido with the silver and yet be immune from punishment. American coins were formerly used by the Indian for the manufacturing purpose but he has lately learned that Mexican coins cost only half as much as American and that In addition to this they are better for his purpose because they are softer. Therefore you can pretty well depend upon It that your brace let or necklace has at one time or other passed as "coin of the realm."
