LULA MAY SHACKELFORD iAssts SIX NAMES FOR FOUR PLAGES Fight Is On in Arkansas Contest Over Selection of Delegates at Large. Little Rock, May 27. - It is now practically settled that a stub born contest will take place in the Democratic state convention to meet in Little Rock next Mon day over the selection of the fou r delegates-at large to the Demo cratic natiional convention, which meets in Denver in July. As forecasted in these dispatches several weeks ago, Jas. H. Har rod, of Little Rock, a life long friend and adviser of Gov-Elect Geo. W. Donaghey, will be a candidate for membership on the big four delegation. Mr. Har rod has settled the matter by an nouncing his candidacy, and it is known that he will receive the support of Mr. Donaghey and the friends of the governor-elect Senator Jas. P. Clark, Gov. X. 0. Pindall, Secretary of State O. C. Ludwig, Geo. W. Donaghey and Senator Jeff Davis will also be placed before the convention by their friends. Mr. Donaghey has repeatedly stated that he had no desire to attend as delegate at-large, but his friends insist upon presenting his name and feel confident that he will be elected. The friends of the Senator JefT Davis have also announced their intention of making a fight for him in case Senator Jas. P. Clarke is elected. Gov. Pindall. as stat ed in dispatches to The Commer cial Appeal Sunday night, says he is also a candidate, and has every assurance that the guber natorial controversy will not be revived by Speaker Allen Hami ter in case Gov. Pindall leaves the state to attend the Denver convention. The selection of the big four delegation promises to be the most interesting feature of the convention. The fight over a state-wide prohibition plank will also attract considerable atten tion. Quiet work is going on all over the state among the dele gates who favor the insertion of a state-wide plank in the plat form, and the friends of the movement say they are confident that the convention will come to their rescue.

Chalfant . 670 M iBCellaneous . 33s t EMPLOYMENT DAY. The National Prosperity As sociation. originating in St. Louis, is doing something defi nite besides talk. It is acting. It believes the best kind of optimism is the kind that shows results. The best kind of boosting is the kind that puts dollars in the pockets of labor, in the till of the merchant, and into the coffers of the legitimate tradesman and manu facturer. One of the things the National Prosperity Association has done is to declare next Monday, June 1, to be Employment day. It has secured the pledge of many firms and corporations to reinstate on that day all or near ly all of the men who have been let out during the recent stress. This arbitrary attempt to revive prosperity, whether it will or not, may not meet with the iull meas ure of success anticipated, but whatever it accomplishes will be that much. The optimist is in favor of look ing at the doughnut rather than the hole, but you will make a more enthusiastic optimist of him if you provide the doughnut for him to practice on. It is a movement that may ex ercise a healthier influence all around if it is generally adopted. — Arkansas Democrat. COUPON.
