i .It was oidte evident by the Questions

aesieue to learn if fraternities etui
exited at the High School, even with
the drastic rules, keeping such organi

ntener Bell asked of Principal &l

the school at present that a fraternity
sxltd, Mr. Slmonds replied that at

also that of the teacher, that there

Senior class and one in the Junior

"Were you at the time Mr. Simonda
aeteotea you wearing the pin, a mem

you know of the existence of a fra

"Have you attended a meeting of any

This is the first reported infringe

the limelight, next week. .-
Final plans are rapidly , being con
templated and before the week ends
Maryland's metropolis will be ready.
to care for-the Democratic hosts.
mere is strong, sentiment among
Democratic leaders who have arrived;
here in favor of changing the two.
thirds rule to a majority. As to can
didates there are seven having pledged
delegates in their favor and there is
much gossip regarding a few possible
oar norsesi
Best estimates made, Hoday, of the
strength . of : . the active candidates 1

There will be 1,086 delegates in
the convention, the winner of the
presidential nomination will have to
muster 724 of them.
Unpledged delegates number 207
and such as, have - arrived in town
are receiving distinguished attentions
from the representatives of the can
didates.
As a result of the primary election
system tne great bulk, of the deje-

Mayor Gaynor. of New York, when

name" will be presented at the dark
norse stage of the convention. De
spite the quip with which the mayor
dismissed the subject, suggestion that
ne may enter tne race has caused a
lively stir among Democrats now on
the stamping grounds, a If ; Gaynor
should throw his hat in the ring with
the backing of Tammany Leader
Murphy delegates, it would be an im
pressive feature of tne contest.
Governor Foss, of Massachusetts, is
also regarded as a possibility in the

"It stands to reason that the rail
roads are not going to work against
their own interests -and if they are
permitted to own and operate -boats
through the canal, such operation and
control will tend to reduce water com
petition in order to benefit railroad
transportation. ' "
"We are : attempting to regulate
railroad , rates and the best way, in
my judgment to prevent exorbitant
rates through monopoly is to prohibit
railroad owned boats passing through
the canal. The Senate bill does thll
under limitations. '
"It Is known as a matter of history
that railroads have used their steam
ships, not only to prevent competition
but to destroy competitors.
"This new enterprise should be kept
tree from all probability of monopoly.
My judgement -is that the House bill,
so far as the canal is concerned, is
better calculate to preserve a free
and open waterway than the WH re
ported by the Senate Committee."
