DELEGATES ALL AT SEA Aside From Two-Thirds Rule, the problem of Nominee Proves Worrying1. (BY WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS.) Ban Francisco, June It. (I. N. 8.) A chicken with its hend cut off, flop, ping around In the backyurd, knows exactly where It Is going, compared to the hosts of democracy gathering here to select their candidate for the presi dency and build their platform. With a two-thirds vote necesaary for a nomination, Instead of only a ma jority, as with the republicans, the chaos of Chicago preconventlon days has descended upon Ban Francisco, bag and baggngc. leaving the arriving dele gates confused and confounded. .William Jennings Bryan, It is claimed by some, with his "dry" backing can prevent the nomination of anybody who doesn't suit him. It will take but 805 votes a third, plus one, of the total of 1,091 delegates to do this. . But. warn the friends or Governor Edward I. Kdwards, of New Jersey, do not overlook the -wets.- iney win control at least 805 votes In the con ventton, It Is asserted, and In their turn can prevent the nomination of any can didate unfavorable to them. Senator Robert L. Owen, of Okla homa, will form a coalition with Wil liam Jennings Bryan and precipitate a rough-and-tumble opposition the mo ment the cohorts of the administration insist upon an out and out ratification of the league of nations plnnk. And with not a few delegates behind them, many believe this combination will be able to rally more than a third of the delegates to their side, thus blocking the selection of a Wiluonlan nominee. Two-Thlrds Rule. Aside from the two-thirds rule, now unusually bothersome to the democrats, the problem of a nominee is worrying them. They are every bit as hay as to their choice of a standard bearer as were the republicans In Chicago. Counting. William O. McAdoo and President Wilson and no list of demo crat lo presidential possibilities is con sidered by the party men now here to be complete without the names of both there are pretty nearly a score of candiadtes, In, the open or potential, already under consideration. Alphabetically there are Bryan. Cox. Clark, Cumminga, Davis, Kdwards, Glass. Hitchcock, McAdoo, Marshall, Meredith, Owen, Palmer, Payne, Sim mons and Wilson, to name those most frequently mentioned here. McAdoo Boom. The McAdoo boom has refused to stay dead. Its corpse persists In com ing back to life. Finished, dead and buried though McAdoo himself Insists his boom must be considered, the man agers of other candidates now here drumming up support for their men keep on talking McAdoo. In the same breath they treat him as a dead one ar.d vet as one still to be watched. "McAdoo," they say, "is entirely out of the race: whatever support he ever had is now gone, spilt up among the other candidates. But if McAdoo's name Is presented to the convention " Then follows a long argument on wny MeAilnn can not win. tirovlng himself kfeared by the other aspirants. The general oenei nere, lour nji since the McAdoo telegram, is that Mo. Adoo's name will ! presented lo the democratic convention here and will be voted on. As to what will happen then opinion II divided. Pome declare thst after the first bal lot or two, when McAdoo will receive a complimentary and scattering vole, his name will disappear. Others say along about the eighth ballot or so Mu Adoo will be put across with a rush Just as Benator Harding was In Chi cago. Clever piece of political maneu veringthat Is what the latter school rails McAdoo's telegram refusing to consent to his being placed In nomina tion. Whichever Is right, the delegates now arriving admit they are greatly In trigued. In the confusion thus created some profess to see an attempt of the party bossea to steam roll the conven tion: others discredit this. "Anv attempt to control this conven tion," Senator Robert U. Owen, himself a candidate, declared, "would react. It would prove a boomerang. No such attempt will be nisde." CAPT. PECK OPENS UP STATE HEADQUARTERS Capt. Thomas F. Peck, who an nounced Saturday his candidacy for the rfpubllcan nomination for governor, has opened headquarters In Knoxvuie. Plans for his campaign are practically complete. Nine petitions In behalf of Capt. Peck are In the hands of Hal Clements, chairman of the state executive com mittee, and Peck saya he Intends to make a flnlah fight. " In regard to the political situation So far as the governorship Is concerned, Capt. Peck gave' out the following In terview In Knoxville this week: "I believe that a republican candi date can be elected because of the dis satisfaction which is broadcast through, out the state on account of Gov. Rob. erts' public utilities measures, the at titude of labor toward him and par ticularly because of the injection ol national policies and Issues In the race by means of his sttltude toward Sen ator John K. Shields." In spesking of his own candldaoy. Capt. Peck stated that he had never boen a candidate tor public office be fore. He fathered the demonstration train Idea which' proved such a suc cessful means of promoting Interest In things agricultural when he was com missioner of sgrloulture under the Hooper administration. Though those who are fostering his candidacy arc drawn from all olaaues, Cant. Peck be lieves that the farmers and agricultur ists are particularly warm In their ad vocacy of his race. To the Pubiio.
