TO BE BIG ATTENDANCE DISSENSION IN THE PARTY OVER THE PROHIBITION ISSUE IS SUCH AS TO INSURE A LIVELY GATHERING. Galveston, Tex., Aug. 8. DelegatM to the democratic state convention, to be held here tomorrow are already ar riving In Urge numbers. The attend ance promises to be unusually large. Though there are no nominations to be made, the state ticket having been selected at the primaries on July 23, the convention promises to be any thing but a prefunctory affair. The dissension in the party over the pro hibition question Is such as to insure a lively gathering, with a possibility that it may result in a serious spit in the party ranks. The situation with regard to the pro hibition Issue is the most remarkable in the political history of Texas. The trouble grows out of the facj that O. B. Colquitt, candidate of the anti-pro-hlbltlonlsts has been nominated for governor, and that the proposition .to make the submission of a constitu tional amendment providing for state wide prohibition to a vote of the peo ple a demand of the platform of the democratic party, and therefore bind ing upon the legislature, was carried In the recent primaries by a good ma jority. Tomorrow's convention is expected to be under the control of the prohi bition element of the party. With the prohibitionists In control of the convention the nominee for governor and his chief supporters may be ex pected to take little If any band in writing the platform. In this connec tion it is expected that Senator Joseph W. Bailey will be selected as the medi ator to bring the opposing factions to gether in the matter of agreeing on certain proposed planks In the plat form. Senator Bailey, however, is not viewed in a favorable light by many of the prohibition advocates, particu larly by those who supported Cone Johnson, prohibitionist, for governor. He is regarded by them as having been largely, Instrumental In bringing defeat to the cause in the matter of the gov ernorship through his espousal and auport of William Polndexter, anoth er of the gubernatorial aspirants, and by this split of the prohibition vote, made possible the nomination of Col quitt. Unless Senator Bailey or some other peacemaker succeeds in bringing about a peaceful solution of the problem, de velopments of a startling nature are in the opinion of many well Informed and close observing people, are almost certain to result from the state convention. tVfi" " '4 - e t --' y Good Pishing.' la enthusiast was telling some friends about a proposed fishing trip to a lake la Colorado he had in con templation.

On going over to the hotel the only place of rendesvous she asked the clerk for a room and was told that they were all taken, but upon second thought the hospitable fellow said "We have one room left but it is adjoining a room occupied by an ex tremely nervous person," but after be ing assured that she would not arouse her nervous neighbor she was taken to her room. After some little time she began to retire forgetting - the warning of the clerk, and she drop ped her shoe. Then remembering where she was, she finished retiring very quietly, and after a while she was startled to hear a shrill feminine voice shout, "Say, when are you go ing to drop the other shoe." Miss Maitland supported by the Maxwell-Hall Stock company will op en a week's engagement at the Gennett tonight In a new comedy drama, "A Jealous Wife." As usual, ladies will be admitted free it accompanied by a paid thirty cent ticket Dally matinees will be given starting tomorrow. St Elmo" Tonight The S. R.

HcDoauelL BARNARD TO SUPPORT HIM CRUMPACKER IS DESCRIBED AS BEING AFFILIATED NEITHER WITH THE INSURGENT OR THE REGULAR WINGS. , ; (Palladium Special) Indianapolis, Aug. 8. Much import ance is attached here to the action cf the republican candidates for congress, taken last , Friday la announcing in resolutions that they will not support Cannon, for re-election as speaker of the house at the nex' session of con gress, but that they will cast , their votes for Congressman Crumpacker of the Tenth Indiana district. This ac tion was forecasted several weeks ago in these dispatches when It was pub lished that the congressional candi dates had talked the matter over at a former meeting and that they had practically come to the same conclu sion. It only needed the resolutions which were adopted last Friday io bear out what was said in these dis patches at that time. - Congressman Crumpacker's long years of service in the house as the representative of the Tenth Indiana district, together with his well estab lished ability in the handling of pub lic affairs has made him the logical man to receive the support of the re publican members - of congress for speaker. Judging from the 'looks of things all over the country it is going to be well nigh impossible for Speaker Cannon to have himself elected for an other term as speaker, and in that event Congressman Crumpacker will come to the front prominently as the man for the place. Crumpacker's Position. A good deal has been said in regard to Crumpacker's standpattism and it has been said frequently that he is a standpatter of the strongest type. But Crumpacker is not as strong a stand patter as he is reported to be. He is more nearly a typical Indiana repub lican than anything else. He cannot be said to be a straight out insurgent, either, but he is as much insurgent as he is standpatter, to say the least. In fact Crumpacker was punished at one time by Speaker Cannon for being too progressive in his views on the tar iff question, and the Congressional Record shows this to be true. For a number of years Crumpacker was a member of the house committee on ways and means, the committee which has in its hands the prepara tion of tariff laws. He had arisen to this exalted place through the fact that he was one of the veteran mem bers of congress and the further fact that he had proven by his work his right to be a member of the most im portant committee in the house. He was always regular with his party on party matters. He and Speaker Can non became good friends. But when the time came for the preparation of a new tariff law Crum packer was suddenly removed from the ways and means committee by Speaker Cannon, and it was the gener al understanding at the time that the removal was made because Crumpack er sought to reduce some of the tariff schedules below what Cannon thought they should be erduced. In other words. Crumpacker stood for a fair revision of the tariff and Cannon punished him for this by re moving him from his high post of membership on the ways and means committee. Crumpacker was allowed to retain his chairmanship of the cen sus committee of the house, which has had charge of te preparations for te taking of the 1910 census. This is al so one of the highly important posi tions in the house, and Cannon un doubtedly left Crumpacker at the head of that committee only for the reason that Crumpacker was the best quali fied man In the house to handle the enormous work. He Favored Reductions. Those who were acquainted with the course of events during the big tariff fight In congress last year say that Crumpacker was at all times in favor of reductions in many of the schedules although he voted for the Payne tariff bill when It was before the house. The Indorsement of Crumpacker, therefore, for the speakership, will undoubtedly be entirely satisfactory to the republicans of Indiana. It means two things First it means the elimi nation of Cannon from the campaign in Indiana; second. It means, that Crumpacker will stand a very good chance of election as speaker, in case the next house Is republican. Many republicans have been fearing the re sult of a speaking tour by Cannon In Indiana, since they have beard from Kansas and Nebraska, where he made speeches prior to the primaries. Tbe resolution indorsing Crumpack er was presented to the meeting last Friday by John L. Thompson of Gas City, candidate from the Eleventh dis trict All candidates present voted for it Including Thompson, Cox of the Seventh, Bland of the Second, Posey of the First, Barnard of the Sixth. Keal of the Ninth. -.-... : - " - ' ' i. i":r: P;. .. . -v - . Vice President Sherman, above; CWJfy A United States Senator T. P. Gore to $lfS; ' ; Y his right; Congressman B. S.

LAW SHIELDS EMPLOYER, Doctrine of Assumed Risk Should Be Abrogated, Says Chicago Jurist Suggests an Equitable Plan of -Com " pensation For Death or Injury .',v T' Statist! 1c show that industry kill: and ma i ins KX) times as many ieo;l as fall i:i battle.

' Judge John Gibbons of tbe circuit court of Cook county. 111., makes tbe above striking statement in a report submitted by him to tbe justices of the supreme court of that state. . He ar gues strongly against some of thr abuses and defenses now prevalent In liability suits for injuries to workmen In the line of their employment and then suggests what- be considers an adequate remedy for the evils com plained of. "Tbe doctrine of assumed risk aa ap plied by tbe law of master and serv ant should be abrogated.- tbe report continues. "The many and marvelous mechanical combinations wrought by the inventive trcnius of today in the form of labor Having machinery, com pellinj? rapid construction and frequent changes, render these accidents almost Inevitable unless the utmost skill and vigilance are exercised io making and maintaining each part of such machin ery. - Courts of justice, instead of. layinp down a just and equitable principle ot law for the determination of tbes cases which would stimulate the men who employ dangerous machinery in operating their business to an exercise of constant - and critical vigilance in avoiding danger and in providing safe ty for their employees, have formulated a rule which encourages their indiffer ence and places a premium upon negli gence. That is. the law. as Interpret ed by the courts, relieves tbe employ er from liability for Injuries received by bis employee while working with or about defective machinery If the em ployee knows tbe machinery is defec tive, and If be continues bis work with out being Induced by his master to be lieve that a chanre will be.made he la Hurray Thoatro Cutter Stock Co. neiu toDavt nssuu-cU ine risk.
