M'ADOO'S STRENGTH WAS WEAKENED AS
CANDIDATES WERE BEING PRESENTED;
EIGHT
Maryland, Which Had Been Counted in the
McAdoo Column, WiH Cast Vote on the First
Ballot to John W. Davis, but McAdoo Leaders
Expect to Get the Vote Later.
M'ADOO'S STRENGTH ON FIRST
BALLOT IS FIXED AS ABOUT 300
Cox and Palmer Managers Claim to Be Pleased
- That McAdoo's Name Will B.e Presented for
, Consideration on the First Ballot Cummings
Boom Takes on New Impetus.
- San Francisco, June 30.-e-Stripped for action, the Democratic
national convention to-day swung into the business of selecting
a presidential nominee.
' Meeting an hour earlier than usual and working under an
order of business which permitted the presentation of candi
dates before the party platform has been adopted, the conven
tion entered upon a day of demonstration and oratory which
marks the placing of candidates in formal nomination.
fWith all the nominating addresses re
stricted to 20 minute and seconding
. speeches to five and limited to not
more than three to a candidate, each of
the possibilities had' not more than 33
' minutes for full description of hia mer
its and capacity for the nation's high
est gift. Working under that high
geared progam, it waa within the range
pf possibilities that the nominating
speeches, would all be delivered to-day,
thug clearing tlie way for the presenta
tion of the platform the first thing
Thursday.-morning if thev resolutions
committee can complete it by that
lime.
Speeches were on the program nomi
nating William G. McAdoo, Attorney
General Palmer, Governor Cox of Ohio,
Chairman Homer S. Cummings of the
Democratic national eomniittee, Gov
ernor Edwards of New Jesrey, Sen
ator Hitchcock of Nebraska, James W.
Gerard, former ambassador to Ger
many, Senator Owen of Oklahoma, and
John W. Davie, amhji.d(ff to Great
At the eleventh hour friends of Wil
liam G. McAdoo abandoned efforts to
prevent his being placed, in formal
nomination. Dr. Burria Jenkins of Kan
sas City will deliver the nominating
speech. Mrs. Antoinette Fink of Chica
go and Mrs. Peter Olesen of Cloquet,
Minn., will make seconding speeches.
Decision to Tiave Dr. Jenkins speak
waa not reached definitely until to-day
because certain of McAdoo's friends
thought his last telegram urging that
a speech not be made should be ad
hered to. It was thought by some, how
ever, that a nominating speech should
be delivered in fairness to the dele
gate, who, if no mention were made of
McAdoo, during the nominating speech
es, might be in the dark as to his posi
tion in the eonvention. No effort was
made to get in touch with Mr. McAdoo,
hut it waa not thought he would make
further protest against the plans of his
friends. They were generally agreed
that no further statement of any kind
wMild be forthcoming from him until
after the eonvention nominates a can
didate. ' ...
The total McAdoo strength on the
first ballot, according to the latent esti
mate of McAdoo supporters will ap
proximate three) hundred votes. Some
my it will not be more than 2.M). while
others insist it will run over. 300.
. Thus far. the McAdoo men said, they
have suffered only one defection. The
Maryland delegation, which had been
counted in their column, will cast it
first vote for John W. Davis, according
to information given out early to
day. The McAdoo supporters said they
expect Maryland's vote to return to
them after k few ballots.
Both the Cox and Palmer forces
viewed with evident satisfaction the
scrimmage within the McAdoo forces,
which was threatening to bring Mc
Jdo to front at once, and make .the
nomination a three-cornered contest
from the beginning. They have in
isted all along that they winild not
permit the McAdoo movement to en
Joy the advantage of a reserved seat in
this rear to wait for a psychological mo-
ment when the eonvention. unable to
throw a two-thirds vote to either of
them, would turn to someone else.
Talmer headquarters, in a formal
statement that the attorney general's
position ws "stronger than it ever has
been before." announced that hi forces
were intact and claimed votes in she
eonvention which were not shown on
the first ballot, because they would be
east for favorite sons and come to the
Pahnrr column later.
.Cox forre. professedly undisturbed
by the wet and dry argument which
has ranged armind their candidate and
1h exit sua issues which have been in
jectod into his campaign, were tighten
rrg up Iheir lines and were ready to
tart the balloting.
Despite the promise that the cenven
tion woi!d have a big three at the out
jet, dark Horse talk was never snore
persistent than it is at the moment
he raixiiditr are about to be placed
in mminatton. The name of Vice
president Marshall. John W. Davis, and
Homer . Camming, were awv
ard whew dark horse were being dis--.:
and delegates were kg into
consideration t-Sst each of 'he bg
OTHER
three could prevent the other from
getting a two-thirds vote. ,
The Cummings boom grew from a
mere demonstration of enthusiasm to
formidable proportions in the 24 hour
which followed the chairman's opening
address, and to-day it had taken full
form with handbills being circulated
among the delegates, declaring a great
moment, has produced a great mail."
Democrats through the country too,
were responding to the sentiment, ap
parently, for the national chairman'e
desk was piled with congratulatory
telegrams.
Twice yesterday Mr. Cummings drew
a new demonstration from the conven
tion, first when he announced that he
had taken the initiative in proposing
that the convention congratulated Gov
ernor Roberts of Tenessee for hi action
in calling a special session of the leg
islature to act on the suffrage amend
ment, and again when he rescued the
resolution to double the sire of the na
tional committee and give the new
places to women.' Hi growing boom,
however, brought with it a forecast of
opposition from Bryan, who some time
ago denounced the national chairman
for making a speech at a banquet, giv
en for Governor Kdwards, an' avowed
wet candidate. The chairman's friends
also were not unmindful that hi con
nection aa a lawyer with large busi
ness interest would furnish Bryan
wtyh an opportunity to use one of his
favorite- weapon in a convention a
blast at big business.
But whatever the varying strength
of the candidate may be the fact still
stood out aa the convention got down
to business of making a choice that the
prohibition and league of nations is
sue looming in the background still
remained predominating factors and
that their disposition wa atill insepar
ably linked with the choosing of a
candidate. "
Committee Disregard Wet Plank.
, The decision of the platform com
mittee last night in disregarding a
straight out wet plank, calling for the
repeal of the 18th amendment, or the
annulment of the Volstead act, reduced
the issue to whether there should be
a beer and wine plank, or a bone-dry
decision, as is hoped by William J.
Bryan, or whether the subject should
be entirely Ignored.
Whether Bryan hopes to win or not,
be intends to fight in the old-time fash
ion which ha furnished fireworks fr
many . a Democratic . convention. He
stands by bis determination to force
every delegate to record his or her vote
individually on the issue if a plank
which he considers "wet" is to be taken
into the platform.
Although the White House has kept
its hands off teh prohibition fight there
are administration leader on the
ground, who, while opposing Bryan'
bone-dry plank on the. one hand, are
outspoken in their determination that
the i-onvention "shall do no pussyfoot
ing." but shall make a clear-cut dis
cussion one way or the other. Chief
among these is Postmaster General
Burleson. It is understood they are not
eager for a roll call on the issue. There
has been an informal counting of nones
on the prohibition question and even
the most ardent wet agree that on a
test vote a majority of the convention
would be recorded for a dry plank.

VOTED TO BUILD
NEW CREAMERY
Farmers Near Barre Were
Unanimous for a Co-operative
Concern
COMMITTEES WILL
INSPECT PLANTS
And Report July 10 Large
Amount of Stock
Subscribed
Farmers from Barre City and Town,
Williamstown, Orange, Washington,
Plainfield and' Berlin, numbering about
150 in all, unanimously voted, in
Worthen hall last evening to establish
in Barre a co-operative creamery. The
meeting was pronouncedly in favor of
the proposition a not a single person
offered even an argument during the
entire evening in opposition to the
matter.
Not until J. A. Cumming of Barre,
chairman of the solicitation commit
tee, read the report and several speak
ers had aired their view or given valu
able information concerning such an
undertaking, was this vote taken. Mr.
Cummings informed the meeting that
farmers in the above mentioned towns
had practically gua.Anteed $'2l.20,
which represent 2,191 cow in those
towns.
That number was solicited during
the past two weeks, so of course does
not represent the entire number avail
able' in the towns. Many other farm
era are entering into the proposition
or have expressed theis-desire to d ho,
and there seem to be no doubt that
stock, amounting to $30,000. for such
an establishment will be disposed of
quite readily. This stock is based at
$10 per head on a cow, yet no single
stockholder can have more than 10 per
cent of the entire capital of the corpor
ation.and each and every stockholder
is entitled to but one vote, regardless
of hi holdings in the corporation.
At the opening of the meeting Chair
man Roy Smith called upon Heman
Smith of Williamstown to give the as
semblage some idea of the sentiment
found among the farmers in hi dis
trict concerning such proposition.
Sentimen, the latter aid, , seemed
unanimous for such a move. .
Frank Miner of Orange further
stated that all the farmers seem will
ing to have their herds tested for tu
berculosis. , Dr. E. H. Bancroft, veteri
nary, with quarters in South Barre, de
clared that during his soliciting only
two herds had been met with which
a jet had not been tested, and own
er of these were anxious to have
them tested.
Mr. iLttle of Plainfield.while solicit
ing all along one road in hi' locality,
one which included a very prosperous
section of the town, learned that all
the farmers of that particular district,
with the exception of one, carried their
milk to the North Montpelier co-operative
creamery and expressed satis
faction with the dealings there,
L. O, Mulholland of Montpelier, field
marketing dairy agent of the depart
ment of agriculture, outlined to ih
asscmblaifre several point of uneqvialed
value to the farm. First of all the co
operative plan asists in production;
second, it aids in the proper manufac
ture to the best pilble advantage;
third, an outlet or market is secured
for the product or products of the small
and large farmer alike, and fourth, un
der the co-operative plan, milk or cream
can be manufactured into articles,
which, with the ordinary small farm
er, would be an impossibility. Farmers
all over the country are co-Operating
in, not only creameries for the disposal
of dairy products, but for the produc
tion or other goods.
Barre, he said, qualifies as an ideal
site for the establishment of such a
plant. ince it i centrally located, with
all the other town entering into the
proposition, being well located a to
railroads. It also furnishe a good mar
ket for butter, and would undoubtedly
for cheese. Its connection with daily
mi'k trains made it possible for. whole
milk to lie shipped with little delay to
Boston and New York or other large
New England towns. . ,
(Jood management of a plant of this
kind means much towards its siicj-ese,
fori under such guidam article of
quality may be produced, 'a factor
which," in the large cities, is the pre
dominating influence. Loyalty on the
fiart of the farmers, and unflinching
ovaltv is needed for just such establ
ishment. Mr. Mulholland cited an ex
ample of lax loyalty which occurred
in the west, during wartime. Condensed
milk factories sprung up in all sec
tions. paying exorbitant price for milk
to the farmer. Thia continued until
many door of co-operative crcamerie
had been closed, then price paid took
a sudden drop.
V. R. Jones, state dairy manufactur
ing specialist, wa another to divulge
considerable information about co-operative
creameries. He warned the
farmer not t be discouraged if they
did not grow suddenly rich within the
first six month of the establishment of
the plant, but in all sincerity assured
them they would benefit much more
after the plant had got well into op
erations and manufacture. Vualfv i

North Main Street Pleaded Not
' Guilty Chief Red Cloud
Pays for Brearh of '
the Peace.
Judge K. L. Scott wa somewhat sur
prised when Mr. and Mr. Alexander
tiaretto of 410 North Main street were
brought before him yesterday after
noon, charged with selling and furnish
ing, on a warrant iaued by State's
Attorney K. R. Davis. Thi wa the
first case of its kind to be brought into
court in many months. The case wa
brought under federal law. The case
arises from the fracas on'Nrth Main
street Hunday evening in which the In
dian chief, Kcd Cloud, wa the princi
pal figure.
Mr. and Mr. Garetto pleaded not
guilty, so bail was et at $300 each.
They secured bail, but were instructed
to appear in court to-4- which they
did. 0. B. Cleveland wa brought into
court as a witness and released on his
recognizance, though bail was fixed at
$300.
, Chief Red Cloud, from Middlewater
reservation, Arizona, wa fined $5 and
cost amounting to .$S.50 to-day when
he appeared before Judge Scott. State's
Attorney E. R. Davis, who was carry
ing on further investigations of the
unpleasant occurence of Sunday night,
waa incljned to lay the greater part of
the blame upon the wife, Helen Red
Cloud. From his investigation, he said,
it appeared that the party was dining in
an Italian house and were "Isomewhat
under the influence of liquor, and in
clined to be boisterous. So much so, in
fact, that the woman of the house re
fused to serve any more wine with the
meal, but brought a bottle of Harvo in
stead. This enraged the Indian' wife,
and immediately she commenced
"roughhouse," branding dashes tind
causing much unnecessary disturbance.
It was at this time that the. chief
(truck the woman, in an attempt to
quiet her.
In view of all thi State's Attorney
Davis recommended that a light fine
with costs be imposed. Chief Red Cloud
leaves town thi afternoon as soon as
he has raised money enough to pay a
hotel bill of $4.

THR'GH COMING, OF
'ANDARD OIL CO.
.;
CitjTJouncil Deferred Ac
tion a Week No. Main
' St. Motor Regulations
In a double meeting of the board of
aldermen and the eity council last
night, action was started toward the
restriction of the use of motor vehi
cles on North Main street between
Prospect street and Depot square, anil
an extended discussion was indulged
in relative to, the locating of a Stand
ard Oil Co. distributing station on
the triangular lot at the corner of
North Main and West Second streets.
Action on the -latter matter was de
ferred to the regular meeting next
week.
The Standard Oil station discussion
took place at a special meeting of the
council, at which Attorney E. R. Da
vis appeared for some of those re
siding in the- vicinity of the proposed
locution who protested chiefly because
of the fear that insurance rates might
be increased. Attorney E. L. Scott
appeared for the Standard Oil Co., and
two representatives of the company
were also in attendance. Attorney Da
vis said that State Insurance Commis
sioner .1. 0. Brown had informed hint
that the placing of oil tanks had a
"tendency" to increase insurance ralea
in the particular locality c'oncerned;
but on query from the Standard Oil
men, Mr. Davis said the insurance
commissioner had not stated at what
distance the tanks would have a ten
dency to increase rates.
In' behalf of the company it was as
serted that insurance rates were not
raised in New York state because of
location of property near the oil tanks;
and Mr. Heath, who said lie had been
with the Standard Oil Co. for 32 year,
told the council that in all that time
he had known of only one fire in a
Standard oil station and that was
caused by the tipping over of an oil
stove. He said that it was the pro
posal of the company to erect four
tanks near the apex of the Sortwell
lot toward Willey street, which locu
tion would perhaps bring all present
buildings outside of a 50-foot radius.
The lot is 700 feet long on Main street
and ISO feet deep at its widest point.
Mr. Heath said the tanks would be
perfectly tight and that the building
would be -of hollow tile or cement con
struction. He declared the company
proposed to protect its property from
fires which might develop outside and
that there was small chance for a fire
to develop-inside the company's prop
erty. He had known of instance
where fire had raged "around oil tank
so that the sheet iron side had warped
and yet the contents' had not caught
fire.
Those who appeared in protest
against tha locating of the plant vu
the Sortwell lot said they did not have
any objection if their insurance rates
were not raised. It was generally
agreed that the appearance of the lot
might be improved by whatever struc
tures the company would erect; and
Attorney Scott nnid he considered the
present wood torage a greaterhazard
from fire than the oil station would I.
The council had granted a tentative
permit to the company to erect, its
plant on the lot and then revoked
that permit when neighbors wished to
be heard. After hearing the pros and
cons last night the council votee' to
lay the matter on the table for a week.
Then the council went into executive
session.
