The hour set for the opening of the convention
10 o'clock, and at that hour fqlly
2.000 people were In front of the Crawford
Opera House, where the convention
waa held, clamoring for admit

disagreement between the Filley and
Kerens /actions for supremacy. The
former, as chairman of the state commute,
Issued tlcxots to his set of fleletates
before leaving St. Louis. Kerens
and his followers are present in fore?

caused all the trouble. The local commlttce
on arrangements recognised
Kerens as boss, and this committee also
Issued tickets to the convention, and

the convention opened. Finally an
agreement was reached and the delegates
allowed to enter. Chairman Fllley
called the convention to order and
Congressman Richard Bartholdt was
made temporary chairman. In assuming
the ohalr Major Bartholdt counseled
harmony of action, and then said:
"You are here, not to propose a name
for President of the United States, but
as Republican*, always responsive to
the people's wishes, to ratify the choloe
which they have already made."
When Temporary Chairman Bartholdt
refused to entertain a motion except to
adjourn, the antl-Fllley followers had
a caucus, after adjournment, and attempted
to arrang* matters that they
might seat the contesting delegations

NEWPORT, Ky.. May 12.-Thdre is
a dlmunltlon In attendance at the
Jackson trlsl to-day. Crawford be ran
his argument for the defense. The line
of his defence has been to create sympathy
for Jackson by dwelling upon the
torturing Inquisitorial treatment given
him by the Cincinnati police after his
arrest. He also tried to ahow that Will
Wood, not Jackson, was responsible for
Pearl Bryan's condition.
Colonel Crawford having exhausted
hi* voire it a auartrr before fi o'clock..
court/ adjourned till to-morrow. Crawford
will flnlih In an hour or two In the
morning and the commonwealth attorney,
Lockhart, will conclude for the
prosecution, so as to give the case to
the Jury by adjourning hour in the afternoon.
Colonel Crawford devoted much of
hie argument in an attempt to discredit
the testimony of the two negroes* Allen
Johnson and ileorge H. Jackson, the
cabman, but his greater effort was to
create a doubt as to whether the girl
was killed lu Ohio or Kentucky, and
also to establish an alibi for Scott
Jackson. Whatever may be the merits
of his case and of his argument it Is
conceded by all that Colonel Crawford
