'The Bishop's Emeralds'
at Carson City Theater
Do not fail to see Virginia Fearson
in "The Bishop's Emeralds," at the
Carson City theater.
"The Bishop's Emeralds," the dra
matic masterpiece which comes to the
Carson City theater tonight and tomor
row, is a literal dramatization of Cap
tain Houghton Townley's famous novel
of the same name, depicting an intense
ly dramatic story of English society
life. It shows the struggle between the
second wife of the Bishop of Ripley
and her first husband, thought to be
dead, but who reappears in her life as
an international crook with the inten-
on the wishes of Cox and his campaign
managers.

from San Francisco Hobson declared

Democrats and Precedents

WASHINGTON, July 8. Ever since
the convention system has been the es

on June 1, 1852, there was no contest
over the principles upon which the
Democratic party would go before the TWENTY MINUTES FROM

termining the choice of the delegates
has been a bone of contention even as
it threatened to deadlock the sessions at
San Francisco.
It became Democratic law in 1832. At
thatfime the convention met in Balti
more, as did every other national con
vention of the party until 1856. When
the convention met the renomination of
General Andrew Jackson was prede
termined. The only matter of concern
was the nomination of a vice president.
On the second day the committee on
rules reported the following:
"Resolved, That each state be en
titled, in the nomination to be made of
a candidate for the vice presidency, to
a number of votes equal to the number
which they will be entitled to in the
electoral college, under the new ap
portionment, in voting for president
and vice president; and that two-thirds
of the whole number of votes in the
convention shall be necessary to consti
tute a choice."
Such was the origin of the famous
two-thirds rule which has since gov
erned the nomination. It cost Martin
Van Euren a renomination in 1844, even
as it denied Champ Clark the honor of)
leading the party in the campaign of'
1912.
Democratic history also shows that
the unit rule against which there is
sturdy opposition is no new bone of
contention, for in 1884 one of the bit
terest pre-convention battles waged
around the abolishment of this system
before Cleveland and Hendricks were
nominated.
Neither is the plan to have the nom
inations made before the platform is
adopted an altogether revolutionary

accept the word of the historians that
he did not consider his declaration not
to seek a second term binding in 1848
until he found by some skillful political
maneuvering that his case was hopeless.
Grover Cleveland still holds the dis
tinction of being the only president
who was nominated by resolution rath
er than by a vote of the delegates.

Russians, Germans
Exchange Prisoners
(By Carl D. Groat, United Press
Correspondent.)
BERLIN, June 19, (By mail.) Ex
change of prisoners between Germany
and Russia is on in full swing. Con
clusion of an agreement between the
German and Soviet governments made
this possible, but now as a result of
the agreement the Soviet representa
tive here, Wigdor Kopp, contends that
Germany has recognized Sovietism as
the de facto government He points
to the text of the treaty made between
the "German government" and the Rus
sian "Soviet government" as proof of
his claim.
The hope of the Soviets that the pris
oner agreement would quickly lead to
a wider agreement, namely, a business
treaty has not been fulfilled, and the
indications are that it will not be con
summated for some time to come. In
fact, the foreign office has let it be
known that it doubts Russia's claims
as to ability to deliver the goods, while
in a recent speech in the Bavarian
parliament Secretary von Mueller of
Bavaria declared that the Russian
claims were exaggerated and her trans
portation situation such that she could
not be a trade factor for some while

Meantime, Kopp stays on in Berlin.
In fact, he operates quite openly as the
German government considers him an
accredited agent and he now has offices
in Unter den Linden.
Many people foresee the possibility
that ultimately Germany not England
or any other power will be the one to
exploit Russia. Japan is constantly
making friendly statements about Ger
many, and some observers consider
these as the forerunner of an eventual
agreement between the Nipponese and
the Teutons, wherein Germany will ex
ploit Russia, and Japan exploit China.
For the present, however, this re
mains only a possibility. Germany is
in no position to undertake any exten
sive business in Russia now. But Ger

tation in Russia and her business men

The electoral vote of 1884 went to the

MET WITH PECULIAR ACCIDENT
Mrs. Harry Wiley of Mina met with
a peculiar accident on the Fourth of
July and as a consequence she is go
ing around on crutches and her in
tended visit to her mother, Mrs. Evan
David, has been delayed.
Mina celebrated the Fourth this year
and among the amusements provided
was a ball game. A ball struck the
ground near Mrs. Wiley, bounded away
and hit a broken beer bottle. A piece
of the glass hit the lady on the leg, re
sulting in a jagged wound requiring
several stitches.
As a result of the investigations of
the water of the Carson river, to those
having rights from its source to the
sink, there will within a short time be
a complete adjudication of the entire
stream. The state engineer of Califor
nia is now taking data on holdings in
Alpine county, while the Nevada en
gineer is carrying on hearings and re
quiring filings of all claims together
with dates and history.
Following the findings of the two en
gineers the matter will be taken to the
courts for decrees, which, it is antic
ipated, will settle for all time the dis
putes that have been before the courts
for half a century.
In the case of the Carson river, its
source (both branches) being in Cali
fornia, the question of prior rights has
constantly arisen. Many of the Car
son valley farmers have land and wa
ter holdings in Alpine county.
Pending the decision of the Califor
nia engineer, the settlement of a num
ber of disputes will be taken up. Half
a score of lawyers have been retained
to guard the interests of holdings often i
