Now everybody is wearing badges or buttons of pome kind, and many people have all kinds. The last HK sensation Is to bethe John-on-Borah meeting In the audi torium this evening beginning at 8 o'clock. The news of this will he carried by The World's leafed wires, but it Is distinctly the event of the season in political circles. ncmnnil Overwhelming.

With the fall of the gavol but a few hours distant I am re minded of an editorial statement I made when the field was formlrfg to prevent the nomination of Gen eral wood. This was In February. I then entured the opinion that it oiiM probably be possible for the coalition to defeat Wood, but tha! to accomplish that it must forfeit 11 chances to nominate any of Its nn members.
