ILLINOIS HAS ITS MOST
Speaker Cannon, Chairman, Is Forced to Use a Swear
Word to Do the Republican Gathering Something
Like Justice—Fifteen Ballots Are Taken for Governor
and Convention Adjourns Till This Morning.
SPRINGFIELD, 111., May 13.—After
a continuous session of over twelve
hours, the Illinois Republican conven
tion at 10:28 o'clock tonight took a re
cess until 10 o'clock tomorrow morn-
Ing without having named a candidate
The convention was at once the
largest and the most turbulent held in
the history of the state. The great
convention hall was packed with fully
10,000 persons during the session and
at times the scenes were most turbu
lent. Only the good nature of Speaker
Cannon, who presided, prevented him
from adjourning the convention to the
hall of representatives and excluding
the public at several times during the
day. "It's the d dest crowd I ever
saw," he declared.
The organization of the convention
was effected without difficulty. The
Yates-Lowden combination was in
complete control and the opposition
decided to make no fight against the
Beating of the Yates and Lowden dele
gates, realizing that they would split
when the question of nominating a
governor was reached, nor was there
any discussion over the platform, and
the four delegates at large to the na
tional convention, Senators Cullom
and Hopkins, Speaker Cannon and

Previous to the announcement of the
tenth ballot the shouters for the vari

the rear of the hall and marching for

the members struggling for points of

the police to clear the stand. The
wildest disorder prevailed and for a

IMgr. Fafconio Denies Friction
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 13.—
Mgr. Falconio, the papal representa
tive at Washington, today made the
following statement regarding the re
ported proposed visit of Cardinal Sa
tolli to America:
"We are authoritatively informed
that there is no truth whatever in the
current report regarding the object of
Cardinal Satolli's proposed visit to
America, namely, to settle disputes
which have arisen in ecclesiastical cir
cles on account of the alleged spirit of
liberty and the absolutism of Rome.
"There is no friction whatever be
tween the apostolic delegate and the
American hierarchy. The American
bishops are united and in perfect accord
with the views of the holy father, and
Rome is not apprehensive that they
will ever be otherwise."

humor, Speaker Cannon said:
"The boys in the press gallery will

which followed cooled the heated blood
of the contending shouters, who gave
way before the police and were
dragged off the stand.
Unpleasant for Governor's Wife.
Just before the twelfth ballot was
announced the shouters in the hall
again made an effort to stampede the
balloting and the rival demonstra

of disorder such as is seldom seen in a
convention. It continued for fully half
an hour and it was impossible to

policemen attempted to stop a negro

able gold will, however, bring the total
up to $10,000,000 or more within a very

"I have studied carefully the armies
of Japan and China and the soldiers of
Russia. The success today of the sol
diers of the mikado is due to their
wonder/ul obedience of orders and re
markable enterprise. The Russian sol
dier is courageous in saying his pray
ers before going into battle, and the
same thing may be said of the soldiers
of the sultan; but I believe, on the bat
tlefield, it is not the prayers but the
fighting that wins."

fore leaving tonight for his home, Sen
ator Hansbrough called on President
Roosevelt to tell him that there is a
strong sentiment in the West, as he is

laration that the Dingley tariff sched
ules are not sacred. ,
While he was talking there came the
press report of the Illinois convention,
telling of "stand pat" resolutions on
the tariff. —Walter E. Clark.
