Chauff uer Is Ordered Back to

Insurgent Convention Scores
Tariff and Gives Taft Tepid
D ES MOIN-ES, Aug. 3.— Republican
lowa wrote herself vigorously
progressive today at a convention
which -was in uproar most of the
time. Senators Cummins and Dolliver
and the insurgent delegation at Wasji-,
ington were enthusiastically indorsed.
The new tariff law was branded" as a
failure in the light of the party. pledge
.of 1908.
President Taft received ' the .most
tepid of lukewarm indorsements. -
A sop to harmony was flung out in
the indorsement of the administration
of Governor Carroll.
An attempt to "use the "steam roller"
to make the state central \ committee
overwhelmingly progressive was called
oft presumably at the hint of Senator
Cummins. " .
Senator Cummins was temporary
chairman; Senator Dolliver permanent
chairman. *
Majority Close to 300 \u25a0)
The progressive majority. rangc'J
close to 300 on every .question.
The resolutions committee. was pro
gressive, six to five. t
The foregoing is a "synopsis of tha
day's events. To it may be added
cheers and jeers, applause and f hisses,
music and' howls of. discord.
The appearance -and disappearance
of the "steam roller" was one of the
diverting incidents of the day. \u25a0 V: It
came a bout through^the , insistence of
"the standpat members of the- platform
committee in '.lemanding- an unqualified
cndbrsemerit"of J 'the"".Taft \u25a0administra..;
tion, the legislative acts.of the "regu
lars" and hostility to ' Cummins and
Dolliver. . V-
It was determined , to exert a little
pressure just to show the minority
who is running republican politics in
Steam Roller Used
The primary law, which provides
that members of the state : central
•committee shall be chosen by the con
vention, was fastened upon- as. the
means to thi3 end. It was proposed to
disregard the caucus selections of the
first and ninth district*^ which arc
stsandpat, and to have the convention
substitute progressives in their places.
Attorney General. Bycrs, as chauffeur
of the "steam roller," brought that
engine into view with a « motion i that
\u25a0 the convention proceed to the selec
tion of the state central : committee-,
men. He was opposed. by .F. T. Price
of Elkader, who demanded that the
convention proceed in'the'old fash
ioned "way. A motion' to postpone ac
tion until after the repbrt-of the reso
lutions, committee had* been received,
however, carried on rollcall. '
Concession, to Harmony
It was growing dark when'thisitem
had been, disposed, of. "..Then,, to* the
surprise of every one,; Chairman Dolli
ver ordered Chauffeur. Byers back to
the garage and. the caucus" nominees
were. confirmed. 'This,'; like' the en
dorsement of Governor. Carroll, was a
concession to harmony. -;'.
It was a concession to the candi
dates who expect to go before the peo
ple next fall and who"; viewed l \wlth
alarm the chasm" dividing .the two fac
tions. .Their work in; trying to get
the delegates together was 'almost un
ceasing for 48 hours. .' . '
What may have been- an attempt to
stampede the delegates in favor of the
stalwart republicans was' made 'when a
second, district- delegate— former Con
gressman Ellsworth Romlnger— hoisted
a portrait of the president amid stand
pat cheers." But the other side answered
with silence or with* Jeers. -;.-.": Later an
other delegateVamongl thelprogressives
exposed a picture of Colonel Roosevelt,
occasioning' aVdemonstration. -\u25a0"
Colors Nailed, to Mast
The Taft portrait was again hoisted
and the two likenesses held so as to
confront eaqh othe.'r. The demonstra
tion interrupted a, roll" call "for some
minutes. : .
The standpat- delegates. went down in
defeat with their colors riveted)to the
mast. They fought in^every-commit
tee'where a fight was' possible, insisted
on roll calls and battle devery/inchiof

Secretary's Note to Be Submit*
ted to Congregation of Ex=
traordinary Affairs
ROME. Aug. 3.— The note which Cardi
nal Merry del Val, tho papal secretary
of state, is preparing Jn answer to
that of Premier Caneljas will be sub
mitted^to the congregation of extraordi
nary affairs. The contents of the note
will be - kept secret.
The Giornale d'ltalia publishes an
interview with Cardinal Vanutelli, who
describes Premier Caneljas as a ."ter
rible man," adding that it is impossible
that Iving Alfonso approves his'anti
clerical policy. ._.;; ....
'Cardinal Vannutelli Voes on. to point
out that the | king is' a f erven t Catholic
by sentiment ;and-<*tradition*>but that he
ia- too young to grapple with thesit
uation. and -must be seriously embajr
,' He adds that the Spanish people
themselves 'disapprove of the policy of
the premier as shown by^ the attitude
of the people of Bilboa and other im
portant, places.
Canalejas May Fail^
MADRID. Aug. s 3.— Field Marshal
Lopez Dolinguez, former president of
the senate and former premier, in an
interview today, said he would support
Premier Canalejas in his struggle for
religious reforms, but he doubted the
success of .the movement, on account
of the -immense power of the clergy
and' their influence over the women,
who, he declared, are completely under
the domination of their confessors. '.
"The openness with which Premier
Canalejas is conducting the campaign,"
said the field marshal, "is one of the
•best features of "the situation. He
wants the world to kno wwhat he is
doing. If he succeeds he w*ill have ren
dered an "immense Spain."'
-The agitation of the Roman Catho
lics in; northern Spain, who are in
great part siding with the Vatican, is
assuming- larger proportions. - The or

Officials Begin Search for Enoch
Kendall, Wife and Son, .
Whose Home Was
Found Empty
Woman Who Owns Place Says
Vanished Tenants Are Not .
Murdered, but Are
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
GAZADERO, Aug. C— Enoch Ken
dall, Ura, his wife, and Thomas
A. Kendall, his son. have disap
peared from their leased ranch, three
miles north of Cazadero, and Sheriff
Jack 4 Smith % Assistant District Attor
ney George Hyde and posse, searching
the house and its vicinity for hours
today, could find no trace of the three
nor evidence that they had left their
home intentionally. \ '
What the authorities did learn was'
that the Kendall's who farce the ranch,
on leasehold from Mrs. Margaret Star
buck, wife^ of an architect of Oak
land, have had bitter litigation with
the owner, and but recently have won
an injunction. suijUinaUtuted by-Mrs."
Starbuck to enjoin Thomas Kendall
and his -parents from disposing ©I
stock on the ranch.
Furthermore it was learned . that
some Japanese have been employed
intermittently by Mrs. Starbuck on an
adjoinin gtract. These Japanese were
known to be loyal to Mrs. Starbuck.
One in particular, J. Mayeda, said to
be a graduate dentist, -who lives ia
Oakland, has been seen in the vicinity
recently and about the time of the
Kendalls' first disappearance. A Jap r
anese was seen on the' county road be
tween Kendall's place and Cazadero,
walking toward town, followed by Ken-
Bones in Fire \ :'r; ;
In the first place Sheriff Smith and
Hoyle are baffled by the fact that a3
yet no crime has been discovered. To
day the search for the Kendalls was
started in earnest. Smith and' Hoyle
came over from Santa Rosa and were
joined by Deputy Sheriff S. TV. Steven
son and E. Tresper, justice of the peace,
and "others, 'in the vegetable garden
near_ the house was found the remain*
of a- fire, in which were many charred
bones and buttons and buckles of over
alls. One of the bones retaining Os
shape was a jawbone with a few teeth
remaining-. Sheriff Smith Is under the.
impression that it is the bone of a deer.
The Kendalls had recently killed a deer
and the hair and. hide and meat were
found on the porch. Assistant District
Attorney Hoyle took th» bones back to
Santa. Ro.*a this evening to. have them
examined by a surgeon. Other bones
are thought possibly to be knuckle
There are no blood stains about the
house and no signs of a struggle. The
two men might, have been ambushed
and killed away from the house, but it
is thought that the woman would not
have been far at least.
Horse Tied in Barn '
It has been argued that the Ken
dalls left their home suddenly, taking
no "vehicle nor' any of their better
clothing, the woman not even wearing
her hair switch, and went to the home
they bad in-Fruitvale or to Mrs. Ken
dall's sister in Oakland or somewhere
else. But if that were done the men.
who were known to be careful farmers,
would not have left one of their horses"
tied in the barn without water, and
Mrs. Kendall, known as, a neat house
keepar, would not have left the dishes
unwashed, and a quarter of venison to
spoil, on the. kitchen table. *
The family disappeared between Sat
urday, July 23, and the following Mon
day. : On that Saturday Thomas Ken
dall was in Cazadero and was seen by
friends here. Mrs. .Kendall .had been
staying' with Mrs. Trosper.' wife, of Jus
tice, of the Peace Trosper, a neighbor,
and; was to. have returned there on the
following Monday. .She did. not appear.
On. Monday J. E. Cross of San Fran
cisco came. to , Cazadero to keep an ap
pointment with Thomas Kendall. on ; a
real t estate transaction.. Kendall , did
not appear at the ' railroad station, al
though he", had always been known as a
