LEADERS BEGIN ARRIVING TODAY ~v Besides the 467 Delegates Hundreds of Visitors WIU Attend the Convention. (Bjr P. T. Llaeola.)- .^amestown, July 9.—Every detail seems perfected for the entertainment of the delegates and visitors who will be here, to attend the republican state convention on Thursday, July 12. President O. J. Slier of the Commercial -club has appointed the following sub committees to handle the convention and has been ably assisted by Malcoin Sinclair, sargeant-at-arms of the con vention, Editor W. R. Kellogg of the Jamestown Alert, Deputy Bank Exam iner T. H. Poole and other prominent republicans of Stutsman county. On hotel accommodations: Otto Bauer, Chester Hodge and Andrew Blewett. On convention hall John Knauf, Chas. Rathnian and R. L. Scott. Soliciting and finance: A. B. DeNault, A. E. Simmons, and J. W. Sifton. Re- ceptlon and entertainment: F. A. Lenz, J. H. Severn and Morris Beck. Decorations: Wm. Hall, H. C. Flint ..and Geo. Richmond. Appreciating the fact that this is to be one of. if not the most Important state conventions ever held in North Dakota, the several committees have worked unceasingly and the hearty co-operation of the citizens here them selves has insured the very best ac commodations and cordial hospitality for those who will attend. Sargeant-at-arms Sinclair has .de cided upon the following arrangement for seating the delegations, speakers, newspaper representatives and visi tors. The first floor of the opera house where the convention is to be held, will be reserved for the delegates, and It is thought that it will accommodate all with the possibility of one delega tion, which, if necessary, will be given a place on the stage proper. The stage itself will be reserved for the speakers, the press and the members Jf the state central committee. The visitors will be given seats in the gal leries and balcony and admission will be in this instance by card, as it is expected that there will be a very large attendance and in this, again, Jamestown demonstrates her intention to keep good her reputation for hos pitality in giving out-of-town visitors preference first in the visitors' gallery. That the several counties have taken advantage of the opportunity to ap point deputy sargeant-at-arms, ex tended by the central committee, is demonstrated by the almost universal response Sargeant-at-arms Sinclair lias received. It Is his opinion that there will be a large number of re publicans of the state who will take advantage of this opportunity and that there will be no dearth of able assist ants to enable htm to attend to the duties of his position and to make ,T 4 ,'\. ,di'. Jit,",. pleasant the. visit of delegates and their friends. The deputies are apportioned ac cording to the representation of the counties. Ward county alone mani festing its intention of sending forty, which, together with the delegation from that county, numbering thirty four, will give them a large represen tation at the convention both in the business and the visitors' list. The convention will be called to or der promptly at 11 o'clock on the fore noon of Thursday, July 12. aat the opera house' will be filled to its capa city seems a foregone conclusion. An orchestra has been secured and will enliven the convention during inter vals, while it is expected that the Fargo band, which is to accompany the delegation from Cass county and the- Young Men's Republican club of that city, will also assist in the musi cal features of the day. The sar geant-at-arms has had word from Chairman Hanna to the effect that the Cass county delegation and the Young Men's Republican club of Fargo are to come in special coaches and that Fargo will make the day quite an event, in fact a holiday, the attendance from there is certain to be large. It is understood that the Ward county delegation, deputies and others will also come in special coaches. The committees have not overlooked the entertainment of the visitors. On Wednesday a matinee of races has been arranged, at which several of the speedy horses of the western section of the statewfll be entered. This will afford a pleasing diversion, and a visit to the Btate asylum has been arranged for, several automobiles and busses having been engaged for the accom modation of the visitors and special arrangements having been made by Dr. D. S. Moore, superintendent of the asylum, to give everyone so desiring an opportunity of visiting one of our prominent state institutions. There will be ample accommoda tions for all who attend the conven- tion, according to those having in charge the arrangements. A canvass of the homes where lodgings can be secured will be made today and the city is prepared to accommodate at least 1,200 delegates and visitors. Many prominent republicans have en gaged quarters at the hotels and they will be filled to their capacity. Har rington hall has been engaged and fitted with comfortable beds and there seems to be no lack of facilities for making everyone comfortable. The ladies of the Episcopal and Congrega tional church have arranged to serve lunch during the day at convenient Just where the insurgents will se cure a spokesman to represent them In the convention is a query. Mr. Spalding, Murphy, Divine and Win ship are out of It, neither of these gentlemen being entitled to a repre sentation in the convention and by na ture of the laws governing vacancies, none of them will be able to come as a proxy, the law stipulating that such vacancy shall be filled by the delega tion Itself and outside of Grand Forks county, the delegations are over whelmingly stalwart in the counties these leaders of the insurgents move ment reside. It Is thought that Grand Forks county will furnish the spokes man for the insurgents, however. In discussing the convention itself and the business to come before it, the writer is convinced that there Is every determination of making it a cleanly conducted, business like assembly of the republican Jelegates of North Da kota.

Washington, July 9.—The construc tion officers of the navy will not be aided in preparing plans for the mon ster 20,000 ton batleship by the plans of the English ship Dreadnaught. So far the British admiralty have been absolutely successful in preventing any part of the designs or plans of the largest fighting machine of their navy from falling into the hands of other nations. Such Information as the United States navy possesses of the Dreadnaught is of no service in de signing the new ship provided in the last naval appropriation act. The fact that the plans of the Dreadnaught are so closely guarded is given aB the reason why the plans of the big ship for the United States should not be made public as will be the case when the terms of the act are complied with, as it expressly says that the plans and specifications must be submitted to congress before the contracts for the new ship are made.
