We are. Having feasted our Raze on tho re publican rumpus, consisting of a few light' workouts by Kid Catron, Hurri cane Hubbcll, liursum the Bruiser and Hough und Ready Uomero, we will now be permitted, without money and without price, to witness some fancy exhibition of shadow boxing and rope jumping by Rattling Rarth, Wal loping Walton, McDonald the Mys tery and a number of other classy hv, tvhn heretofore have' been seen In preliminaries and Bemi-windup8 uml are well known to the sporting; public. Knockout Jones, having fail ed to Ret a match up to the present time, will enter the ring and issue his dcfl to take on any fighter at catch weights before the constituency of fering the best inducements, winner take all. The exhibition this week will lack something of the tcnse and subtle jockeying for position which charac terized the one given by the republi cans last month, and the chances arc that it will furnish a less definite hasla of forecast for future events; hut at that, it is expected to clarify the democratic atmosphere to a con siderable extent and to show with reasonable "certainty ninny things which are now enveloped in a haze of doubt.

State Senator W, B.

Mr. Walton will be here at that time, a"" it is certain that he will take an ai" tlve part in the deliberations of tlle convention. His strength with the democrats of the state is confined to ho section or faction, but is general. As a vote-getter he is considered one of tho strongest men in his party, and the record made bv him two years ago in puiug up an uiiiiiri.ru.-.."- democratic majority in his home county in a year of general party dis aster is considered one of the great est achievements that any leader has et made. I'p to the present time Mr. Walton ' the only candidate for the seat which is being kept as warm as pos sible by Congressman Hernandez, and his friends predict that the evidences of support which are helng given and 'hlch will be multiplied when the hs of the unterrified gather here thig week will discourage opposition to the Grant eountv man within the Varty. 1 Harth to Keynote.

Who will be the permanent .chair man of the convention is a matter that oanirot definitely be forecasted at this time, but In view of the fact that 11. L. Hickley, of Raton, and Judge Granville A.

As Judge Richardson was the chairman of the last state convention, which was held here two years ago, and the first state convention, the chances are that a sentiment in favor of rotating the selections will lead to the election of Mr. Riekley.

There were evidences In many quarters, he said, of increas- ing friendliness toward the United States. Optimistic expectations as to lnp purport of the new note are founded on those statements.

May 12. With the war not far from completion of ltd second year, the American newspaper corre spondent In London have become io accustomed to working under the han dlcups, of a censorship that there la now comparatively little friction be tween the men who would eend tho news and those who would stop It. Although there nre occasional top. page that are past understanding. I correspondents generally have learned the limitations under which they can disseminate newg from a belligerent I country and the censors have at tho sime time become more reasonable. Jn an Interview with Sir Edward T. Cook who, with Sir Frank A. Swet tenham, directs the press bureau, a correspondent of the Associated Frew has been given an exposition of the principles under which tho handling of news, both for tho foreign and Brlt lh papers, Is administered under WP.r conditions. Was Raskin's Illographer. Sir Fdward Is best known In Jour milium us the former editor of the Daily News, and since his retirement f,i,m ,h,u i,i"h h devoted l himself to literary labors. .He linn 'edited John nukln'B works and was Ruskin'a tlogrrnpher, mnklng hinny Important contributions fo Knglish literature, and since tho war began hfl has published a life of Dclane, the famous editor of the Times. In beginning his exposition, 8lr Edward said the press bureau never censors articles or telegrams criticiz ing the censorship. He urged the correspondent not to speak "too much jgood'' of the censorship. I Ai"e Natural I'ncnilcs. j "I don't suppose you are likely to 1 do no," he said, "but It would really J be a terrible blow If you did. The en terprising newspaper or news agency , nnd an efficient censorship are nat ural enemies, and If tho day should 'ever come when tho newspapers, llrlt , lsh nnd neutral, conspired to praiso tho press bureau, It would be a catas trophe for one or other of us; It .would mean either that the Journal ,1st had lost their 'go,' or that our ' censors here had been neglecting , their duty." Rlr Edward declared that the only bouquet" thus far laid at the feet of the censors came unintentionally fralK 1-Yont Eo I "That," declared Sir Edward, "Is probably higher praise than we de serve, but I think It Is pretty good ev I idence that we have prevented some 'things which the enemy would have liked and done other things which he bus disliked. That Is a real compli ment, for the press bureau Is a war department." Sir Fdward pointed to the British government's notification upon the outbreak of the war that the tele graphic and radio services throughout the empire would be suspended, and lie emphasized the phrase contained In this notification that the govern ment would under certain conditions permit the transmission of some mes sages "as an act of grace." Many McMsHgvs Panned, "I sometimes wonder," he went on, "wlittber It Is realised that Instead of regarding every instance of a stopped cable as an uct of wrong, you ought, by the letter of the law, to recognize every passed cable as 'an act of grace.' The number of messages which wo stop, delay or otherwise deal with Is negllblo compared with those we pass right uway. "In quoting the government's noti fication I am dealing only with rights. Iu Interpreting the notification In practice we do not, I assure you, say, when a message Is put up to us: Here Is un American message; come, 'let us kill It; we have the right.' What I we actually say to ourselves Is: 'Let j us free if this cannot lie passed as It I stands.' And if It cannot: 'Let us see . how little need be taken out.'" Sir Kdward then explained that the I censorship is governed by the defense , of the realm act, by the regulations xnuU' "nuVr ' council, and by Instructions, explanatory In I detail, which are issued from time to lime by the press bureau and by varl jo, ous departments of state.
