MENTION OF OLLIE JAMES AS
TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN STARTS
A COMBINATION MAY BE FORMED
Clark Men Seem to Be in Control of
Democratic National Committee
An Alliance Between Friends of
Other Candidates Expected.
Washington, June 11. Signs of im
pending storm blackened the Demo
cratic horizon, following an announce
ment from national Clark headquar
ters that Speaker Clark's friends ex
pect Ollie James, of Kentucky, United
States senator-elecfT an avowed Clark
man, to be elected temporary chair
man of the Baltimore convention. The
election of James has been made the
first step in the Clark program for
controlling the convention.
Among opponents of Clark the plan
to allow James to deliver the "key
note speech" is viewed as an attempt
to show Clark's controlling strength
at the very outset. A test on the
point seems certain to be forced in the
Democratic national committee, and
possibly in the convention itself, be
tween Clark's forces on the one hand
and the supporters of all the remain
ing presidential candidates on the
To Combine Against James.
Hearing James had been put for
ward as the Clark candidate, the back
ers of Gov. Woodrow Wilson strongly
expressed a preference for Senator
James O'Gorman of New York. Thom
as M. Owen, manager of the Under
wood headquarters, and the support
ers of Representative Underwood
generally, refused to discuss the mat
ter, but there is every prospect that
the Wilson and Underwood people,
together with the Harmon, Marshall
and Baldwin elements, and the New
York influence, will unite for O'Gor
man against James.
Fred T. Dubois, manager of the na
tional Clark headquarters, sponsored
the statement that Clark favors
James, . and Dubois felt confident
enough to add the prediction that a
majority of the Democratic national
committee will propose James' name
to the convention.
Will Show Clark's Strength.
The committee has the function of
tentatively choosing the temporary
chairman, subject to the approval o
the delegates in the convention. If
the committee recommends James the
action will be considered as demon
strating Clark's control of that body.
Reperts are circulated that the New
York delegation Ja likely to back Wil
son, and it was -noted that Daniels,
McGraw and Saulsbury all are Wilson
men. The Clark people now believe
they are powerful enough to designate
the temporary chairman.

WOMEN INDULGE IN
FRIENDLY GAME AT CHICAGO
While the Politicians Gamble Over
the Presidency Their Wives Seek
More Lucrative Returns The
Roof the Limit.
Chicago, June 11. Several of the
wives of the national committeemen
and widely known politicians attend
ing the Republican convention orga
nized a little whist game early Inst
week in a quiet room in the Congress
hotel and gradually it grew into an
auction whist game with stiff stakes.
Lately they turned it into old-fashioned
poker, taking the limit off and
tossing it out into Lake Michigan.
Rumors of a "big game" have run
about the lobby of the Congress for
several days and Frank Repetto,
house detective, has been """Jumping
about watching every suspicious gath
ering of wonivin when they were per
fectly quiet and ordered nothing but
Took Off the Limit.
The absence of the limit means that
a woman can play her hand for ten
cents or $1,000 without violating any
of the rules of the game.
One woman, a charming society
leader in an eastern metropolis and
the wife of one of the convention of
ficials, let the whole story out when
she handed a bellboy a poker chip in
stead of a quarter as a tip, and, in
asmuch as she played fair and told
the whole story, it wouldn't be fair
to mention her name.
In attendance at the game were the
wives of two western senators, the
wife of one of the officials of the na
tional committee, the wives of three
western politicians of note all three
of them members of the steam roller
crew and one charming little Chicago
woman who has done much toward
making the stay of the visitors in
Just a Friendly Game, You Know.
"It is just a friendly game, you
know," said the woman who told. "Of
course there is no limit. If there is
a low limit, you know, they always
call and one can't bluff. Only one
woman lost very much and she can
afford it. She had lots of fun."

The time consumed ni the presenta-
tion of the Indiana contests before
the national committee made it a
question whether more than Kentucky
contests could be finished at once.
I'nless the Kentucky and Louisiana
cases can be cleared up, it is prob
able the committee will be forced into
night sessions to dispose of the many
contests before the convention meets

TOO MANY LIFEBOATS IN THE WAY
Sailors Testimony in Titanic Case
Upheld Company Searchlights and
Binoculars Not Needed.
London, June 11. The lookout in
the crow's nest, in the Titanic when
it struck an iceberg and went down
with 1,500 persons, was not provided
with binoculars because Whit- Star
line officials did not believe them
necessary. That was thp testimony
given at the board of trade inquiry
by Captain Uartlett, the line's superin
tendent. Bartlett said that, he considered
glasses for lookouts unnecessary;
that he believed searchlights at sea
would be useless and that too many
lifeboats on a liner's decks would
hamper and confuse rescue work.
Captain Bertram, a White Star com
mander, said he never reduced speed
because of wireless ice warnings un
less the weather was not clear.
