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.
After the preliminary gathering to
morrow, there will be a period of sus
pense of practically two days, during
which the committees will meet and
organizations be perfected so that the

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

tees of the convention.

had some bearing on the, perplexing
question of the vice presidency. Each
of these gatherings brought forth an
odd negative conclusion declaring not

vice presidency. Other state caucuses
were equally fruitless in solving the
vice presidential mystery which deep

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

that Dolliver could not and would not

The movement for Sherman or

There Can Be No Headway Unti
That Is Solved. "
Chicago, June 15. 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
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.

Attack Upon" the Anti-Injunction
It is lielieved That It Will
Be Eliminated or Greatly
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,

ed by a four hours' conference in the

tions are to be contained in the de

Tucson, June 13. 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.

A Man Whose Name and State are Yet Secret, Chosen

-'Chicago, June 13. 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.
