New York, Sept. 3. Urey Wood son, of Owcnsboro, gave out. the fol lowing statement on the actloh of the Democratic state convention (n attempting to unseat him as the Kentucky member of the Democrat ic Natfonal committee: "lean only deplore, with other Democrats of Kentucky, the unseem ly action of the state convention at the midnight hour, in undortaking to depose, by snap action, m a viva voce vote, certain committeemen of the organization, good and loyal Democrats, whose only offense was that they voted for other candidates than some of the successful ones In the primary. "So far as I am advised, not one of these men had failed to express hearty acquiescence in the r suit of the primary. So for myself, the threat to give to anomer, in ine midst of my term, the seat I hold on the Democratic National committee (a position to which I have been five times elected in the past nineteen years) does not disturb me in the slightest. I was last elected to this position by the unanimous vote of the state central and executive com mittees in September, 1914, to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Mayo, deceased. This term w.ll expire at the time of holding the next Demo cratic National convention, probably in July, 1916, and I will, if 1 live, be the Kentucky member of the Na tional committee until that time. The fact of my election to this un expired term wa3 certified a year ago by the chairman and secretary of the state committ-e to the na tional committee. The na'ional committee has for many years uni- firmly r fused to unseat any of its members, whj were duly elected, because of subsequent factional party differences in their states, notably in the cases of Guffey, of Pennsylvania, and Mountcastle, of Tennessee, m lyiz.

For somo time the young men in black garb con versed gravely on conference affairs, while the beery young woman nodded In her corner. Tho train approached a long tunnel. The. young woman roused herself. She pinned back lazily a long strand of hair that had fallen on her shoulder, and fixed her gaze upon the ministers. Then she produced from her basket a hugo bread knlfo. Making a few un steady lunges In tho air with this Im plement, she addressed the reverend gentlemen thus; "Don't nono of you Tboys try no tricks on me in the tunnel, or, mark my words, I'll open ye!"
