INTEREST CENTERS SECOND PLACE Coolidge Nomination Will Be Made Today—Convention Speakers Laud Party Record and Traditional Stand ing. ** ' Cleveland, June 1Ö. —In an atmof phere of quiet deliberation, the Rep ublican party Tuesday began here the national convention that will nomi nate Calvin Coolidge and pledge a re consecration to the cherished funda mentals of Republicanism. The question of the vice presidential nomination alone remains undeterm ined among the major issues' of the convention, but the move to draft Frank O. Lowden appeared at night to be waning, with a commensurate gain of strength for Herbert Hoover. The insistent supporters of the former governor almost lost hope when they heard that he had sent to Cleveland a letter of irrevocable de clination, to be opened and read to the delegates if any attmpt were made to stampede the convention into nomi nating him. If Lowden is to be permitted to elim inate himself, the Hoover supporters are convinced that the drift of Tues day's opening session gave evidence an inexorable demand that the man finally selected for second place on the ticket be of a type undeniably in harmony with the policies of the presi dent. That qualification, they say, is possessed by Mr. Hoover in the high est degree. The short session, Tuesday, did no actual work beyond ratifying a con vention program prepared in advance, but by night all the committees, in cluding that named to draft a plat form, had completed most of their work with ease and regularity. I Most of the day's session was given over to the keynote address by Theo dore Burton, of Ohio, notable for its serious and dispassionate tenor and its lack of foensic display and built j around an appeal to the party to up hold the hands of the man in the house. There was little of the usual con fusion and none of the riotous noise making that often has played so great a part in American political history. Only three times was there any ap proach to a demonstration and in each case the cheering was awakened by a play upon the chord of party solidarity and Republican tradition. BUTTE MINE MAN VISITS RED LODGE A. K. Wolfe, a mining man of Butte was here the past few days on busi ness connected with the Gypsy Min ning Company of Butte, ofHihich he is the president. A numlAr tof Red Lodge, Washoe and Roumj^p; business and professional men are the company, which is operating in Butte and Virginia City ted in rties. Hr. and Mn. Jack MdPstfe, accom* panied by their young tighter Una, left for Jackson Michi|pu>uSsturday. Their plana to date alflÿeiot definite, will be to return here «■Hit fall. FIGHTERS READY TUESDAY BOUT Local Battler in Splendid Condition for Ten Round Go With Wyoming Featherweight Champ.

This week starts the last half of the Chronicle Salesmanship Campaign in which $2000.00 in cash and awards will be distributed July 2nd to those with the highest credits, the credits being given for subscription payments 20,000 96.600 25,000 7,600 ... , .94,000 17.600 5,000 40,000 . 20,000 . 93,000 11,000 * or P a P er - Magnitude of the Offer . There has ben no such liberal offer made anywhere in a county of this size by any newspaper, that is positive. Do you of your own knowledge know of any circulation proposition affording a possibility of the salesmen earning as much as $460, $65 or $36 per week for spare time for three weeks work? There are many hundreds even thousands of men and women in Carbon County who will not earn the big sums that will be given the winners of the Chronicle's three main awards, during the remainder of the three weeks campaign. The offer is so big, so generous and so simple that some folks who naturally skeptical are prompted, without any investigation of the meth ods used in this campaign, to bring out their little hammers (which are already pretty well worn down to the handle) and begin knocking away for dear life, never stopping to think they may be keeping some deserving person from p rewavV that he or she might easily win. For the benefit of all readers, all candidates and all the friends of all the candidates, the rules and regulations of the campaign arc again pub lished. Here they are exactly as printed in the Chronicle May 9th. The purpose of the 'Salesmanship Campaign' is two-fold. FIRST: To arouse a kener Interest in good clean salesmanship. SECOND: To increase the circulation of the Carbon County Chronicle by recruiting from those living in this county the salesmen needed to secure I a large subscription for the paper quickly. To make it worth most anyone's while to take part In this interesting 1 campaign this paper is offering approximately Two Thousand Dollars in awards. are This liberal offer is open to both men and women. It costs nothing to enter and everybody who takes an active interest is sure to be handsomely rewarded. The awards are made according to the subscription credits obtained by the candidates competing. These credits are given on subscription payments received from new readers of the paper as shown in the schedule which tells how subscriptions count. Credits cannot be purchased and are not trans ferable from one candidate to another. Any man or woman (except employes of the Chronicle or members of their immediate families) married or single, young or old, may compete. Those who wish to enter the campaign may nominate themselves. The entry blank will act as a selfstarter and is good for 6000 credits. Candidates may obtain subscriptions anywhere irrespective of district and çredits will be allowed on all subscription payments from 12 to 96 months. The list of candidates and the standing of each, will appear in the Chronicle from time to time so that the friends interested may note the progress of those competing. A credit certificate will be issued for esch subscription received and these ballots or credits will be published to the standing of the candidates at the discretion of the sales manager. The campaign starts at once and closes July 2, 1924. Every candidate is assured a square deal as ABSOLUTE FAIRNESS is the key-note of the 'Salesmanship Campaign'." The candidate obtaining th largest number of subscription credits will be given the first award—The Gardner Tour de Luxe Automobile. The candidate obtaining the second largest number of subscription credits will be given the $200.00 Diamond Ring. The candidate obtaining the third largest number of subscription credits will be given the $110.00 Victrola. After the winners of the three capital awards have been eliminated from the competition each candidate with the largest number of credits ip each one of the three sections will be given $60.00 Merchandise award. Every active candidate who does not win one of the other valuable awards will be paid a cash commission of 10 per cent on every dollar he or she col lects on subscriptions to the paper. An active candidate will be defined as one that turns in at least two subscriptions during the last week of the cam ; a paign Perhaps next week a closing hour on July 2nd can be announced. In the mean time, it would be well for the candidates to decide upon a person to represent them on the board of judges who will audit the accounts and an nounce the official results. The duties of the judges will require some knowledge of money figures, thats what credits are given for and if any salesman has turned in any orders each one of those orders will show, with the cash received, just those and nothing more. The page of display advertising in this issue has some features import ant to each salesman and a careful reading of it is advised. In the figures made up for publication this week a closing up is noticed in the list. Some have held their reserves and some have voted and worked while others waited. Miss Ruby Negovan always a consistent worker, heads the list in the county, Miss Mary Sa rich.of Bearcreek is second while George Karhu who is always polite to the ladie* run* an easy third. Miss Leone Bergan, of Roberts, Miss Nannie Parker, Miss Anna McConville and Miss Lucille Giovetti all have good scores. Mr. C. J. Wilson shows a good gain this week according to the list. There's no time like this to speed-up, step on the gas, be with the winners and celebrate the 4th of July right. This is the last chance for new entries, a few hours work will enable any ambitious man of woman to start in the race with a good score. THE SHOOTING OF DAN MCGREW His wife, who had gone with Dan McGrew, was now the adored dancer of Broadway's Boulevard Cabaret. He followed her there, accused her of her unfaithfulness. A fight.

Rogers will furnish all necessary im plements and teams there will be no temporary work done, all work will ! be completed as far as possible, and the amount accomplished will depend entirely on the manner in which the citizens lend their assistance. Another meeting of the road com mittee will be held on the 17th when a soliciting committee will be appointed to ascertain just how many will go out and work so they will know how many implements will be necessary to furnish. Plan your work right now to take the day off, don your cover-alls and get in the game, it will be a lot of fun besides some good work which will he a benefit to all.
