the horses of the- foremost carriage as

not move was ready. to lend a faithful

L. L, when he learned that a couple of
newspaper photographers had been loiter

titious views of his children about the
grounds and in bathing.
"You may say, as coming from me,"
said the Governor, "that I will not tol
erate photographers coming here and
taking pictures of my children while they
are bathing. Furthermore, I will take
legal steps. If necessary, to prohibit it and
punish violators of this rule. I wish you
would give all fair warning that I will
not tolerate it. One newspaper sent a
request for me to sit for a picture on
horseback and I consented, and he seemed
satisfied with that. Shortly afterward,
while my children were in bathing In the
cove two photographers, the newspaper
one and another, crept out of the woods
and wfthout permission took snap shots.
That was not a nice thing for them to do,

KANSAS CITY, June 28.— Convention
signs are apparent, but not very plentiful.
No one In Kansas City talks about any
thing but the coming Democratic Na
tional Convention, and it is evident that
the gathering is to be the event of.tu*
history of the city. Preparations are/bs
ing made* to receive the crowds and the'
citizens Intend to take care of all who
may come, notwithstanding the doubts
that have existed concerning the- ability
of the city to handle a 'great national
gathering. ;; K r^ ¦;
Among the convention signs are pictures
of .William J. Bryan and the "peerless
young leader of 1536" looks alone from
many windows of the shops and hotels."
Then there are the decorations which ara
beinsr put up on the streets and about
rooms selected for headquarters of differ
ent State delegations, in the hotels the
carpets are being covered with ' canvas
ana drayioad alter drayload of cots and
bedding are being carried in. The cot Is
a sure sign of a convention:
Over at the convention hall every effort
is being made to complete the building by
Wednesday morning, and the men in
charge renew th«ir promises that the con
vention will not be delayed a minute by
reason of incomplete arrangements. . To
rugut there is much more to do, but wher
tvora man can work he is employed, so
that the prediction, of the committee will
no doubt be verified.'
As to political news relating to the con
vention there is more coming into Kan
sas City than is being found or manufac
tured here. The few Democrats who have,
arrived read the interviews .and • reports
of the leaders who are about to start for
the convention or arc on their way here,
and this -forms the basis of most of the
gossip afloat. Of course" the dispatches
lrom Lincoln have the most interest, for
everybody is anxious to know what Bryan
is talking about and what the men- say
who vis* him. There i 3 an > impression
that Bryan may come to Kansas City
daring the convention, and some- of those
now here think that the great demonstra
tion which would follow his appearance
would carry enthusiasm all over the
country and start the campaign off with
a hurrah that would be beneficial.
There is the faintest intimation that
there may he a contest over the platform.
It is known that Bryan not- only wants
the Chicago platform reaffirmed, but that
he also desires to have the 16 to 1 declara
tion reiterated as strongly as it was in
the Nebraska State- platform. There are
other Democrats who think a strong re
affirmation of the . Chicago platform in
a few words and then to pass on to "im
perialism," trusts and other new features
will be sufficient. The latter course is ad
vised as,one tending to satisfy Eastern
The fact that the nomination for first
place is already beyond question naturally
attracts more attention to the second
place, and there is some speculation about
the man who is, to be the Vice Presidential
candidate with Mr. Bryan. As was th»
case in Philadelphia, New York occupies
the center of the stage. Quite a number
of names have been suggested from that
one State, and one candidate, Mr. Sulzer,
already has headrfuarters ppened an'u
some enthusiastic boomers on the ground.
If Sulzer comes here after his visit to
Lincoln, with hopes : high; he will get n
freat many delegates outside his own
tate. 'New York has not Indorsed him.,
but he is said to have.:, the friendship of
Croker. There are those who will remem
ber that hearty support on the part of
the New York organization* will indicate
the desire of Croker.
No one here pretends to explain the talk
about ex-Senator Hill, 'and Western Dem
ocrats say that' his announced Intention
of comingto Kansas City for the purpose
of trying to Mcure a modification of the
platform is sufficient to take him out of
the Vice Presidential race. Hill, it was
understood by men coming direct from
Lincoln, was far * from satisfactory to
Other candidates are mentioned, includ
ing ex-Congressman B. F. Shiveley of In
diana. : and there is some talk about
Charles A. Towne of Minnesota, who was
nominated by the Populists with 'Bryan:
There is no doubt about the earnestness
of Towne and his friends. He has head
quarters engaged and the Silver Repub
licans will hold a convention simultan
eously with the Democratic gathering.
They and the Populists intend to impress
upon the delegates 'the ability of Towne
as a vote-getter and urge his nomination.
