While committees continued to grind away at organization preliminaries, the Republican national convention went through the motions of a second day session. ; It escaped a second keynote speech, by the selection of Sen ator Lodge as permanent chairman, this following the plan of 1912 and 1916, or making the temporary organization per manent. To-day's business consisted of bearing a report bf progress from the committee framing a platform and a report from the credentials committee which makes up the permanent roll. Missouri got back her two lout dele gates, through last night's action of the credentials committee, which reversed the national committee's decision that renditions in the electorate in Kansas City were so bad it would not seat any of the delegates. That restored the to tal number of delegates in the conven t ion to 084 and the number necessary for a nomination to 403. The overturning of the national com mittee's decision in the Tennessee con test also came as a surprise. Robert K.

A cool breeze blew off mV Michigan and the sun was shining. It was the remark of everyone that the convention hall was unusually comfortable. TO HEAR GOMPERS. LEAGUE OF NATIONS .'

Members of the sub-commit tee of 13. when they went into session to smooth out the remaining platform trouble, expressed confidence that they could airree, but all of them were somewhat hary when it was to be done.

On the program of the hearings be fore the full committee were several events regarded as likely to hold the interest of the members and perhaps start some new rows among them. In cluded in those who were to appear during the day were Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Iaxbor, who brought with him some suggested labor planks, and a delega tion headed by Frank P. Walsh, asking that the party declare for recognition of the Irish republic. The sub committee Jias for it chair man Senator Watson of Indiana, who also ia chairman of the resolutions com mittee. He is understood to have pre pared a league plank fashioned in part after that adopted bv the Indiana Re publicans, hut Senator It or ah of Idaho, aided by Senator McCormick of Illi nois, is eipected to offer an amendment designed to make the declaration near ly roim-ide with the views of the treaty irreconcilables.

The new Western L'nion building in N'ew York t'ity is to be built of Bethel granite by the term of a contract signed yesterday by the company's representative and General Manager W. C. Clifford for the Woodbury Granite Co. The price, of the granite quarried and finished here, free on board at this station, is two and one-fourth million dollars ( .2.2.0. - i 000!. The amount of granite required' will be approximately 200,(kKI cubic. feet. The time limit for the filling of the contract is three years. For several weeks a small force of men has been at the quarries clearing up in anticipation of the signing of this contract, whilh. was deemed a cer tainty because the original new build ing of the same company on a site ad joining that of the proposed building wa built of Bethel granite a few year ago, ants had the war not intervened the counterpart of that building would have been completed by this time. The granite industry has been dead in Bethel for three year, due entirely to the war, except that its revival hss been delayed a . few months bv the wage disagreement. Bethel granite is used almost exclusively for building, and for that reason the war hit Bethel harder than most granite towns. Tho ontract for the Western In ion build ing of eix years ago was one of th largest ever filled here, and the amount. f granite required tor the propo-ed building is nearly the same. The riec, of course, is much, greater. General Maunder Clifford, who suc ceeded the late George H. Bickford just when the bottom was about to fail out of the building business, has never relaxed his efforts to bring back tho era of proserity in Bethel and liard whk. Five months ago negotiations' were resnmed looking to the signing of the Western l'nion couirai-t, but the. unsettled rendition of the labor market postponed time after time a definite agreement, a contract price Iwing prac tically out of the ii est ion, with the wae settlement up in the air. The quarries are ready for imme diate operation. The railroad, after, three years of disuse, is in bad rendi tion and a thorough overhauling will lss giten at once. The trranite business in Bethel will lie on its feet again a month from now. a pronouin-ed nf of prosperity is a certainty. WIXL LEAD CRIMSONS. Saginaw, Mich, Show An Increase of !. Per cent.
