After all the delegations had " - - been seated with the exception of ' Nebraska the delegation from that State made a spectacular entrance. They came marching in a solid col umn down the center aisle holding ' high a large banner of red and ' white and blue silk on which was V painted a portrait of Mr. Bryan. Above the picture were the words, ' "Bryan Volunteers" and beneath it "of Nebraska" Cy The sight of the banner and the I hrch of the Nebraskans created " great enthusiasm for a few min utes, mauy of the delegates and alternates leaping upon their chairs and waving hats and handkerchiefs. OFFICERS ANNOUNCED. Following Mr.Taggart's remarks -the Secretary read the official roll call of the convention. Bishop John J . Keane, of Wyoming, was introduced to deliver the invoca tion, delegates and spectators ris ing to their feet at . the request of the Chairman. "I am directed by the National Committee," said Chairman Tag gart, "to name the temporary offi cers of the convention and the clerk will read the list." In the midst of prayer a' photo grapher in the gallery set off a flash light, calling down on his head the wrath of all who were grouped in his vicinity. The smoke of the explosion filled a cor ner in the hall, much to the annoy ance of everyone. The name of Theo A. Bell was greeted with an outburst of ap plause, as was that of Ury Wood son, the Secretary. A few band claps sollowed each of the other names as they were called. The list as named was adopted by the convention unanimously. CONSTRUCTION OF PRIMARY PLAN. it WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN Vend 1 I. Bell Looks Good for Six Hundred and Eighty Delegate Votes. The claim that the construction placed upon the primary plan at the meeting of the State Commit tee last Friday will affect the Su preme Judge's race, and will be greatly prejudicial to the interests of alt three of the candidates hav ing a smaller number of votes than Judge Bell is not regarded seri ously in most quarters. That J udge Bell will be the nominee upon the first ballot by votes cast with di rect instructions from the people looks more aDd more probable. In fact, it is almost a certainty. Every indication points to this end. But, even in case he should not, there is every reason to be lieve that his opponents will bene fit in just as many counties if not more than will Judge Bell by the altered plan of selecting delegates. That Judge Bell will 3-5v''J convention with e LI KJ HI I Lit CO UlUJ DCdXiC , He has certainly 1,11 u,eir efforts lowing counties, vnu.. "hts of tlie pel returns have been canvasst. ton, Carroll, Coffee, Crocketf, fib!e. exf son, nawsius, mcKman, iucxairy, Obion, Perry, Bhea, Stewart, Wayne and Weakley. These give him a total delegate vote of 207. Besides it seems pretty certain that he has carried the following: Carter, Cheatham, Davidson, De catur, Dickson, Dyer, Fayette, Giles, Hardeman. Henry, Hous ton, Humphreys, Lawrence, Lin coln, Lewis, Marion, Marshall, Robertson, Shelby, Sumner, Tip ton and Washington. These carry a total delegate vote of 473, mak ing a total of 6S0 votes that seem, almost sure to go into the Bell column, giving him 20 more than enough to nominate. Besides, he has a good chance to carry Greene, Grundy and Hardin, all three of which are close and the result in doubt. If there is accuracy in these- figures the complexion of the county delegations will have littleto do with the SupremeJudge race. Nashville American. m t' v , v v .V'V v.

San Francisco, July 5. Fresh from1 dry docks, with bunkers full of coal and magazines filled with ammunition, newly painted and looking as spick and span as the day they left Hampton Koads, the sixteen battleships of the Atlantic fleet are riding at anchor to-day in the harbor, ready to sail next Tues day for Honolulu on the second half of the long cruise around the world. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon, two months and a day after it entered the portals of the Golden Gate at the end of a 13,000 mile voyage, the flower of the American Navy, headed by the flagship Connecti- pnfr will tfortm nnt nf fno lirl"5 of San Francisco under the mand of Rear Admiral C. S. Sper ry, the third Commander-in-Chief since the fleet has sailed from Hampton Roads. The fleet will reach Honolulu on July 16, and remain a week, proceeding to the antipodes. Elaborate preparations for its entertainments have been made at Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne. The fleet will reach Manila after a visit to Japanese ports, about Oct 1. Before return ing to Hampton Roads, the latter part of February, fourteen months after starting from the Atlantic, the fleet will have completed the most remarkable cruise in naval history. According to Admiral Sperry, the fleet is in better shape than when Uef t Hampton Roads last Decem ith Th V ih wn nnlvr rnmnlftpI nn a foar e ships, is now thoroughly in- alled on each one. The places on the Alabama and ne, which came around South -.the fleet, and which C-ift S , b im e ward m amount to a hill of beans if it were not for the boys. About four hun dred of them "belong;" and it cost them twenty-five cents a year apiece in dues, to say nothing of work. But they can vote for the officers just as much as the grown ups. And the way they walked into the Saota Ana weeds! Weeds are no joke in a California spring. They were as high as the bo3r's heads in lots of places. It wasn't "The Man with the Hoe" this time; it was the small boy with the hoe, who made fierce and vigorous on slaught upon those weeds. , "Death to the weeds!" was the slogan of the Junior Club of the Civic Improvement Association, and even the toughest and tallest went down before it. All the wards have been parcel ed out to committees of men who had charge of the boy brigades in their various sections and to com mittees of women who were to fur nish the lunches. Although the day had not been officially declared a legal holiday, it was almost as good, for everybody turned out and those who didn't work looked on. At our house, breakfast was OY er at last and our small boy's face lengthened dismally when his grave father, who also "belonged"' to the Civics and who had a stand ing to maintain, announced: "Now Sammy, you and I will take our hoes and work along our side walk." An Age of Bigness. "Sir, 1,7G4 people were injured in the United States on last Fourth of July." "What of it?" "Doesn't that figure startle you?" "Not a startle. I would have guess ed it at treble your statement." "Figures in all lines are getting too durned big in this country," com plained the part"jof the first as he moved away.- JWu Imf ter kill oiT half the,.
