Richmond is to have a new factory.
A large concern, the object of which;
is the manufacture of tables and di-1
vers other articles of furniture, is i
trying1 its level best to get into Rich- j
mond. Tothat end it is now endeavor
ing to obtain a suitable site of suffi
cient advantages to induce the factory
to move here. Negotiations are now
on between both sides which will re
milt soon in the moving of the fac
tory to Richmond. There is plenty of
money behind the enterprise and the
apitalists of the concern are anxious
for a situation in this city. A good
location is now in view and the fac
tory is endeavoring to secure it. The
formal announcement to the public
of the coming factory will be made
soon. The new factory will add an

and Richmond will take another jump

Senator Bailey, of Texas, declined
the permanent chairmanship, saying
he wished to be on the floor when
the platform was duscussed. Camp

Camp Clark said King David would
have been sure all men were liars if
he had heard Senator Lodge read the
Republican platform at Chicago. To

Knox was transferred from Aattor

a recent interview with Assistant Sec
retary of State Loomis, as follows,
"While in New York, I spent ten
days on Wall street. I find there no
longer any disposition to make a fight.
In accepting the situation the feeling
toward Roosevelt seeems to have un
dergone a change. I heard many
friendly comments and I confess I
was surprised at the change." Clark
roused the audience in his burlesque
of Loomis as agent on Wall street.

The convention was called to order
at 10:13 a. m. with prayer by
Archbishop Glennon. He was ap
plauded, probably on account
of his terseness and his excellent
delivery. The report of the commit
tee on rules and order of business was
read. The weather became cooler and
the temperature in the hall was much
more comfortable than it was yester
day. At ten o'clock Hie credentials coi
mittee was again in session and will
not be ready to report for an hour.
Senator South, of Arkansas, mov
ed to amend the report so as to admit
the delegates from the Philippines.
Chairman Grady explained that the
committee had admitted Porto Rico
delegates because the national com
mittee had included Porto Rico in the
call. Following the Sujjeme Court,
which had ruled that Porto Rico was
a part of the United States and that,
the Philippinees were not. There
fore, the Philippines were excluded
by the committee. South explained
that it never had been a part of the
Democratic doctrine to consider in
sular possessions as part of the Unit
ed States, and he was opposed to ad-
rrti f 1 1 n nnv siiph npmrrptps arm nsk-
ed the convention to vote down that
part of the report before the com
mittee on credentials reported. He
demanded the roll call, but was not
supported. A vote was then taken
and the report of the committee was
adopted. The delegates from Porto
Rico took the platform and thanked
the convention for its action. The
secretary made the announcement
that the committee on permanent or
ganization had not agreed on a re
port and wanted the members to meet
for conference. The report of the

REY. E. 0. ELLIS
FROM HIS SOUTH NINTH ST."
HOME SINCE TUESDAY
Over His Strange Disappearance
Was Last Seen by the Palladium
The following startling commnica
tio nwas handed to the Palladium to
Rev. O. E. Ellis Missing.
"Rev. Elwood O. Ellis left his
home, corner of Ninth and South A
streets, at 1:30 p. m. on Tuesday,
July 5th, taking with him about f 100
to pay some bills in the city, since
which time 'nothing, has been heard of
him. His family are much distressed
at his absence. Any one having any
mformation of him since theti will
confer a favor by advising his friends
in Richmond. "
The above statement contains all
that is known of Rev. Ellis's strange
actions. A Palladium representative
called at the Ellis home and found
the family very much distressed over
the absence of their husband and
father, and Mrs. Ellis is under the
doctor's care. The only information
they were able to impart is contained
in the foregoing statements. The
family have noted nothing strange
in his actions of late and nothing to
indicate that he had any intention of
A Palladium representative had a
talk with Rev. Ellis last Monday
morning, and observed a strangness
in his actions. He is usually the
kindest man on earth to newspaper
men and always gives them all the
news he knows anything about. On
last Monday he did not seem as om
municative as is his custom, and it
was noticed by the reporter and was
afterward mentioned. He seemed to
have something on his mind and
wanted to get away.
Rev. Ellis has hosts of warm
friends in this city, who will be pain
ed to learn of his disappearance and
only trust that in a short time the
mist will be lifted and the whole
truth known, and that in that knowl
edge nothing but good will result.
Mr. Ellis's family are among the
most intellectual in the city and
stand in the highest rank.

The first shipments of stone are here

In a few days the first work on the
