The report of the committee on cre dentials was presented. All its ac tion has been anticipated in reports.

GIVEN A SEAT AMONG METRO POLITAN PAPERS IN THE GREAT HALL Senator Fairbanks Literally and Pop ularly the Largest Man in Hall. Of the Convention. (Special to the Palladium.) Chicago, Illinois, June 22. The convention convened at 12:25. When Senators Fairbanks and Bev eridge entered the convention hall there was tremendous applause. Sen ator Fairbanks is literally and pop ularly the largest man in the conven tion. His boom for 1908 is already started. Senator McComas, of Maryland, read the report on creden tials and his announcement that the Spooner delegates of Wisconsin, would be seated, it brought forth deafening applause. The representa tive of the Palladium has a seat among the representatives of the metropolitan papers on the stage, through the courtesy of the National committeeman, Harry New. HARRY NEW.

FAIRBASKS Followed by Crowds Wherever He Goes. Chicago, 111., June 22. Senator Fairbanks, the cynosure of all eyes at the Republican convention and the Indiana delegation, is constantly in the limelight. Wherever Senator i Fairbanks went the crowds assembled and he was pointed out as "the next vice president of the United States." The additional notoriety which has come with the vice presidential stam pede caused the senator to blush with especial violence once during yester day. Miss Blanch Ring, lead ing lady in "Vivian's Papa," which is occupying the boards at one of the Chicago theaters, was introduced to him in the lobby of the Auditorium Annex. She is bright, vivacious and exceedingly persistent as well as pret ty. A large crowd assembled to witness the interview. Miss Ring became confidential in telling the senator how fine looking he is. The senator back stepped, but the actress followed him and, to emphasize her remarks, tap ped him on his expansive waistcoat with her forefinger, at which the In dianian grew red in the face and ex cused himself, while the bystanders made no effort to conceal their mirth.

(Special to the Palladium.) London", June 22. No develop ments concerning the disappearance of Kent J. Loomis, brother of Assis tant Secretary of State Frank B. Loomis, who were passengers on the Kaiser Welhelm II, from New York, to Plymouth and Bremen. The steam er reached Plymouth Monday and Bremen Tuesday. Loomis was seen at midnight Sunday, but was missing at 1 o'clock Monday morningr though nothing was said of his disappearance when the steamer stopped at Ply mouth. P. F. Murphy, a passenger with Kent Loomis, says he saw Mr. Loomis shortly before the passengers landed at Plymouth. He does not credit the theory of suicide or accident. Berlin, June 22. Mr. Gembel's lit tle daughter says she saw Mr. Loomis Monday afternoon sitting among the boats. E. A. Gembel, a passenger on the Kaiser. "Wilhelmll, is not certain whethfey Kent Loomis disembarked at Plymouth ordisappeared while cruis ing the channel. A thorough search of the steamer was made at Cher bourg, where Loomis intended to dis embark. Mr. Loomis was in the habit of sitting up high on the upper deck among the boats. The position is regarded as dangerous. Names the Members of His Staff Formerly of Richmond. Major Harold C. MeGrew, formerly of this city, commander-in-chief of the United Spanish-American War Veterans, has announced the follow ing appointments to positions on his staff: Charles A. Garrard has been named as chief of the staff; Guy a Boyle, adjutant general ; G. W. Powell, quar termaster general; Fred C. Kuehnle, inspector general; William II. Drap ier, Jr., assistant adjutant general; Robert L. Moorehead, assistant quartermaster general; t)aniel H. Pond, assistant inspector general; Carroll B. Carr, Raymond P. Van Camp, personal aids. Will Be the Only Candidate for Vice President. (Special to the Palladium.) Chicago, June 22. Fairbanks will be the only candidate named for vice pi-esident. The Illinois delegation de cided to withdraw the name of Hitt and whenin the call of States Illin ois is reached Cullom will announce the receipt of a telegram from Hitt, directing the withdrawal of his name. Dolliver will present the name of Senator Fairbanks. The names of other candidates will be withdrawn. With the platform sub-committee re port completed and in the hands of the full committee every element of speculation seems removed from the remaining sessions of the convention. Following the action of Illinois, Col orado announced the withdrawal of John M. Springer. , .." MAJOR MM SEN FAIRBANKS EAST MAIN STREET FRIENDS' CHURCH THE SCENE OP GREAT RELIGIOUS AWAKENING.

The enrollment officers were kept steadily at work up to this evening, the majority of the visitors arriving last night and this morning. Decorations of Church. i The East Main Street Friends' church where all meetings will be ' held, is beautifully decorated. Flags of foreign countries and the United j States are suspended over the build ing in symmetrical figures, and the walls and posts are ornamented with flags. Perhaps one fifteenth of the ground floor space is taken up by the stage, which is arranged with palms and colors effectively draped. The speakers stand is on the left hand side, with the seats for the cho rus (practically the same as that sung at the May Musical Festival) behind it. The chorus did not sing last evening. First Session. The first session of the convention wa held yesterday afternoon. The evening session was largely attended more local people being present, but the programs of both were excellent. After the program yesterday af ternoon the board of directors held a business meeting on the stage at which purely business affairs were transacted and the various matters cleaned up preparatory to the night session. In the First M. E. church at 5:30 yesterday afternoon the primary workers of the state of whom there were about one hundred and twenty five present, held a reception. Nothing much was done at this, save in a so cial way. At 1:45 Prof. E. O. Ex cell, who has charge of the music at Reports Sunrise Meeting at Six Morning. President Hall's Talk.
