By MARSHAL OTEY WALKER
Special Central Brent Correspondent
fur The Herald and Delegate to
Republican Convention
KANSAS CITY. Mo.. June 13.—
Well, here I am. special delegate
from the Old Home Town, to help
eelert the republican candidate for
president.
The editor of The Rrownsville
Herald has kindly asked me to write
the inside stuff of what goes on in
the convention since in my import
ant position, will be in on all the
private goings on.
I arrived here today and hurried
through the depot, not making my
self known, as I hate demonstrations
and do not want to be bothered by
— w » — —r - r - -
| candidates asking my tote until my
mind is made up.
This place is full of people. It
looks as though the test of the
United States is empty and every
body is here. The streets arc so
tiacked that if one took a deep
breath there would be a traffic jam.
I made the rounds of all hotels;
but they were full. The managers
were sorry but they didn't know I
was coming. Being a .iberal minded
delegate. I came h-.*re without any
reservations of any kind.
However. I used mv influence and
my town marshal badge and finally
landed the last pool table on Twelfth '
street. It seems I wiil nave to sleep (
on it with two gentlemen whom I.

Well, sir, I have already drawn up
the platform which I will submit to
the committee. If the republicans
adopt my platform they ought to
sweep the country. Here it is:
1. —Farm relief: Quicker servico
on free seeds from congressmen.
2. —Tariff: Abolish the duty on
suspenders and double the tax on
Scotch jokes.
3. —Prohibition: Law violatora
should be ashamed or more careful.
—Aircraft: A law forcing every
trans-Atlantic flyer to carry a bar
of soap and a towel.
5.— Highways: Rerouting of the
Haystack township road which now
passes through Hoo'stown so it will
pass through my town.
6.—Foreign: (1 > Prevent Chinese
laundrymen from joining their civil
war as we need them and (2) dis
arm everybody in « nicago except
the police.
There! That'll Lnock their eyes
out.
P. S.—I have a straight tip that
Harry F. Sinclair nasn't a chance
for the nomination.
