James M. Cox, of Ohio, and launched ne gotiations. This took the form of an in- r quiry as to what Palmer might j expect from Ohio in case Cox! were nominated for the presiden- j rv. as an asniranl to second nlace. ! Coming as it did. the overture could be regarded only as being of the vastest importance. it was taken as II I (III L' I ll the Palmer forces had reached the determination to stand out against McAdoo 's nomination and would go to Cox to check such an action. The matter, it is said, was handled diplomatically. There are reasons for believing that if Palmer is not chosen in tin early balloting he will be forced to drop out. Should his votes go to Cox it would mean pushing the Ohio man close to the two-thirds line.

PYTHIAN LODGE TO HAVE NEW HOME Expects To Provide Clubrooms, New Furniture, Regalia, Etc By First of the Year The last meeting of the members of Normal City - Lodge, No. 162, Knights of Pythias, recorded the se lection of a committee with power to act in the way of selecting new quar ters, since it is the intention of the lodge to have elegant, newly furnish ed club rooms for the accomodation of the membership, which has been increasing to such an extent that the movement is considered imperative. The lodge has been attracting much attention as a result of its rapid growth since the war, a number of the district and state officials. There are many returned soldiers enrolled, and most of the official ranks are be ing filled with cx-service men. This, it is believed, is one of the reasons for the great interest being shown, and it is th intention of the older members to show their appreciaton in deciding to have a new home in the near future. The movement will ; necessitate the purchase of new fui niture, regalias and? general equip ment, making the Richmond lodge one of the foi-emost in the state. The de gree teams haj already attracted the admiration of many through their manner of exemplfication. It is pre sumed that the change will be effected and all purchases made by the first of the year. The newly-elected officers who will be installed in the near future are: II. B. Willoughby, chancellor conir mander; Robert Garrett, vice chan , cellor commander; Charles Nelson prelate; D. C. Sparks, K. li. S. and master of finance; H. I? Sailce, mas ter at arms; Oscar Stivers, inne; guard; Eugene Moyahan, outer guard; W. L. Howell, master at work; F. M. Stivers, incoming trustee. INSTALLING BIG ; COAL CONVEYOR An immense coal conveyor, the va riety seen about cities, railways and mines in various parts of the country, and especially at coal yards, where huge quantities of coal are handled daily, is soon to be seen in operation in Richmond, since W. V. Bro'addu's & Company has purchased a modern plant, which is now being installed. It will be the first one this side of Louisville ' and will doubtless attract much attention, as it will handle, tonr. of coal at a single stroke, and save much labor. A corps of men from Louisville, where the plant was pur chased, are on the ground and have the installation 'work started. The men are in charge of Mr. Holtzclaw. who is superintending it. There will be an immense pit dug for operation room when the machinery will be in stalled, and a special track built for the operation of trucks or cars to and from the pit. It will be possible to fil ' a truck with coal in the twinkling oi an eye, it is said, when the plant ? properly operated. This means the saving of a vast amount of labor, which is at a high premium at the present time. Tliis improvement marks another notch in the plank of progres siveness for the city to which it is a credit as well as to the firm , install ing it. WILLIAM WALLACE HERE Hon.

POLITICIANS AT WACO FRIDAY NIGHT There were a number of Richmond men at Waco last night, the attrac tion being the visit of Private George Davis and Judge Ralph Gilbert, who aspire . to democratic congressional honors. The discourses of the two speakers, one of their hearers indi cated, were to the effect that Col. Ripy had got lost in the shuffle, and that he was no longer their nemesis. Those who heard the speeches declare they were "good," and while there was no't a great difference in opinion between the men apparently, they were both good politicians," and one man acaiany xnat ne was sorry oi ms inability to vote for each of them, af tei hearing' their speeches.
