Ot "The Lark," early bird of a traia that arrived t yesterday, via Chicago, Grand Canyon and Les An gelee, Presidential eandidates were by no meas the major topics of diseu slon. MOW ORANGES GROW. As delegate-at-large, the malif *ant Eastern type that regards Buf falo as "west." gased out of the ob servation car upon his first orange grove, a vast one, heavily dotted with the golden fruit. '"bey're not real," he insisted. "Somebody is putting one over on us. They're hung $here like Christmas tree balls. Oranges grow on bshes." The Kansas delegation, freshly stiff from thirteen miles of muleback down the Bright Angel trail of Arisona's grand canyon, limped into the dining ear. ,convinced, to the man and wom an, that there are times when the mantelpiece has certain advantages over the breaktkst table. One little woman from Ohio. Mrs. Bernice Pike. in fact, the first wom an delegate, talked to Governor Cox. but through a rapid-fire bombardment of "Oh's" and "Ah's." "My State stands firmly behind Cox. We are going to nomin--oh, is that alfalfa? I've never seen it grow yes, we women of Ohio stand behind Cox because he--my dear, whatever is that gorgeous purple stuff. growing against that little farmhouse? Bou gainvillik? Why, we don't have it at all back East-as I was saying, we women stand behind Governor Cox because--" PLATFOR'S TEE THING. "Because." by the way, is the ad verbial keynote struck by thiq occa. sion up to date and which most dis tinguishes it from the recent Repub lican doings at dhicago. Here the platform's the thing-not the candidate. The .wojnen, nowwe confess, high ly distinguished, as a rule, for the personal reaction. are talking issue rather than candidate. The lobbies of the Palace Hotel today ring with soprano discussions of the labor pro gram submitted by the labor com. mittee of the woman's bureau of the Democratic national convention. One fair Alabamian, with that Southern ukelele twang of voice, did rush up to us after we had finished talking with Attorney General Mitch ell Palmer. "Honey," who was that?" "Mitchell Palmer." MR, PALMER's FACE. "M-m--ml He's got my vote, I child. Issues are all right in their lace, but gray hair and a young face like his.! Law, honey, that combina tion could make me forget home, rarty and platform." While, of course, is merest persi f age, because she and the seventeen nillion of her sisters entitled to vote, ior the next Presidential candidate whether or not t1q Federal amend :nent ip ratifed-h e already proved that they are not shriking the re sponsibility of trying to elect to office men qualified to help lnake the world a better place in which to live. But that is part of the new note: a grace note, that women are injecting into politics, the crowning thrill of persildfage. EVEITWHERU ARE WOMEN. The hotel lobbies bloom with the persiflage of pretty women in the mil linery of June, in corsage bouquets, badges, soft frocks. Headquarters are gay with them, 1 and to indulge in comparison, there is 4 a fillips, a pbp-deavie, among the fair ones of this convention that was con ipicuously absent In Chicago. The mental sleeves, of the women are rolled up. In fact, to walk into headquarters is like a stroll through some alert congress of States. The world and his wife are minding their political p's and q's. ' Our first half hour in San Fran cisco we encountered two brass bands at the station.

They lest their fight, but they were not "s badly beaten in that fight as Governor O'Neill was. The pocket ask of whiskey has had many friends but what tailor ever made a pocket fir a beer bottle or a wine bottle? The advocates of treaty ratification without the dotting of an "I" or the crossing of * "t" are beginning to realise that the delegates are inform ed as to public sentiment. The pri mary vote has not been extensive enough to give any candidate much encouragement. but the small vote polled is not without its warning. The Democratic vote is not coming out this year, and its failure to ap pear at the polls cannot be construed as an indorsement of the League of Nations without reservations. DUMOCRATS' OPPORTUNITY. The Republican convention has alienated a large group of voters who vigorously protest against the failure of the Republican party to indorse the vote mst by more than two thirds of the Republican Senators in favor of ratification with reservations. These voters can be drawn to the Democratic party by a platform declaration that will give hope of im mediate action, but they will be driv en to the support of the Republican position, unsatisfactory as it is, if thp Democrats show as much parti sanship as the Republicans leaders did. Uverybody knows that neither party can secure two-thirds of the Senate at this election and the making of the treaty a party issue invites, there tore, a sham battle with no decision possible. A large majority of the American people want peace and world disarmament. The Republican [party denies thi sto them and this dental offers the Democratic party an opportunity 'seldom presented in polities. There seems little doubt of the party's disposition to write a labor plank satisfactorily to the wage earn era and a plank favorable to agricul ture. The two questions over which there will be differences of opinion are, first, will the party offer itself as a defender of the home against the saloon? I feel sure it will. Second, will it give expression to the peace sentiment of the country? I hope so. De CsSELECTS RIFLE TEAMFORMATCHES Winners Named to Compete At Camp Perry National Shoot In August.
