Hughes led the field on the first ballot tonight and gained much strength in the second. His followers are confident of his nomination on the third ballot and re sisted adjournment, but the delegates were worn out and were glad to quit , until tomorrow. This is the first time since 1888 that the republicans have taken more than one ballot to nominate a presidential candidate. Hughes, Roosevelt and Fairbanks are the only candidates among eigh teen who gained votes on the second ballot. According to reports, Roose velt took personal charge over the telephone from Oyster Bay, tonight of the progresive situation, but his attitude on the possibility of his nonv ination tomorrow has not been made public. The fact that conferees met again late tonight led to the belief that he sanctioned another attempt at harmony. The demonstration for Roosevelt when his name was put in nomination at the republican convention today, pasted forty-one minutes, a record for this convention, but the leaders agreed it was largely a gallery dem onstration. Fairbanks and Burton got prolong- -"ed cheers from their followers. The republican convention moved smoothly to balloting tonight.

FIRST V Sua - l it ASCERTAIN MR U.S. PREPARED Idea Back of Pnsacola s Preparedness Parade Most Novel. ' The object of the "preparedness" parade on the Fourth of July, as planned by the Carnival Committee, is not only to show a patriotic spirit, but to accomplish some good for the cause of preparedness, and to ascer tain if possible the results obtained by citizen soldiery when called sud denly to arms. - ' . As planned, the parade will be su pervised by United States army offi cers, who will determine exactly what reliance can be placed in volunteer organizations suddenly confronted rsT.. : . . j. : " i w i tu war. sjmy uiKaiubiiiun uicuia can be tested out, for actual war con- ditions could not be created. ' , The plan is probably the most novel wmch has yet been suggested for a preparedness demonstration. In planning the movement the Car nival Association stresses the neces sity of co-operation on the part ofi organizations in Pensacola, . both ! business and fraternal. Not only ! men, but women and children will ie expected to take an active part in the parade, and as large a number as pos sible is desired. . In placing the event urder official supervision, an attempt will be made to determine the value of prepared ness and the best way in which to carry out the policy, whether or not it is feasible to depend entirely upon citizens armed for the occasion, or to maintain a large standing army. To collect this information it will be necessary, it is pointed out, for the United States to detail a commit tee to act officially in compiling the data of time required in drilling men into military order. Arrangements will probably be made to have motion picture compa nies here to take pictures of the pa rade if the matter can be given offi cial sanction.

RETURNS INDICATE KEHOE AS WINNER Second Choice Votes Are Cause of Slowness of Returns. With official returns coming in very slowly, enough Is known to forecast a first choice majority for Catts of 4,000 to 5,000. What the second choice will be can not be estimated with anything ap proaching accuracy. In Hillsboro and Duval counties, however, it is well known that' the second choice will be strongly in Knott's favor, and there were prob ably 7,000 second choice votes cast in these counties, of which Knott should get 85 or 90 per cent, according to estimates of politicians in a position to know.

FALLS TO SLAID ATTITUDE Elevation When one of the world's foremost brother, and Mrs. Saufley's Pensacola this morning. but whether or not the re on earth, it was merely a matter of routine. Saufley, one of the world's masters of aeronautics, had said ho was going to break his record of eight hours and five minutes sustained flight, and it was simply a mstter of letting the clock go round. The regular drone of the enp'ue told he was not having the engine troubls that Jrove him b?lck to earth the last time. Suddenly the machine took a plunge.," ' Saufley was soaring n. a height of five hundred fctit at the time, the watchers knew there was no reason for this maneuver. In the flash of a second the flight became incredibly but a sigh of relief went . up as the plane straightened out on an even keel again. Then suddenly it cropped head long, spinning, and crumpled to trash on Santa Rosa Island, opposite the station. Two physicians were rushed tc the spot in aeroplanes, and found Saufley buried beneath the wreckage. Death had been instantaneous. If Saufley beat his former record it was by a few seconds, as he fell at about one o'clock. The Cause. An investigating committee, con sisting of Lieutenant Kenneth Whit ing, and Junior Lieutenants P. N. Bellinger and Earl W. Spencer, was immediately appointed to ascertain if possible, the cause of the disaster. Their findings are not made public, but are for the navy department alone. The machine was of a modern type, had been prepared especially for the endurance flight, and was in good condition. Judging from the way the machine behaved, a broken tail was the cause of the acicdent. The second and fatal drop was from a distance of probably fifty feet. Had the machine been over the water, Saufley's life might have been saved. Sanfley's Career. Lieutenant R. C. Saufley, a native of Kentucky, entered the naval acid- emy in Annapolis, in 1904, and grad uated in 1908, with high honors. Tn was promoted to ensign in 1910; to Junior ieutenant in 1913. He held the world's altitude record, over 16,000 feet, or more than three miles, and also the endurance record for hydro aeroplanes. He was recognized ev erywhere as one of the most skilled aviators. Lieutenant Saufley was a young man, in the late wnties; he is sur vived by a wife, but no children. Aviation is suspended until after the funeral. Naval Aviators Killed.
