to Stand on the Plat

man of the Fusion Con
The Convention Remained
, in Session Practically All
Night and Stormy Scenes
, Were Enacted Before the
Completion of Nomina
tions and Framing of
Chicago, July 15. The farm-Iahor
party, born of a fusion of nnmerouH
political groups, to-day has a platform
and has its new candidate's in the field
for the coming election. Its work was
completed at 4 o'clock this morning
when its convention, after an all-day
and night session chose Parley Parker
Christensen, Salt Ijtke City attorney,
and Max S. Hayes, Cleveland lalior
leader, as ils presidential and vice
presidential nominees, respectively.
But the strength of the new move
ment remains to be seen. The first
test came to-day vhen a group of dis
satisfied delegate formerly allied with
the committee of 48, met and consid
ered placing their own ticket in the
field under the forty-eight banner.
Not all of the forty-eighter delegate
withdrew from the fusion convention
last night when gome 100 or more re
turned to their own convention. Those
who remained were rewarded by see-
ing Christensen, the chairman of their
convention, selected to lead the fusion
party, while the labor leaders content
ed themselves with the. election of
their national chairman, Hayes, to
second place.
Forty-eighter leaders declined to say
what effect this concession would have
on their course when they meet to
day. It was apparent that 'Christen
aen's nomination served to weld strong
ly the elements remaining in the con
vention. One report, in fact, was cur
rent 'that the dissatisfied forty-eight-era
would confine their activities to
day to organise anew for a purely edu
cational movement.
J. A. P. Hopkins, national chairman
of the forty -eighters, addressed the
farmer-labor meeting after reports be
came prevalent that a bolt had been
determined upon by him and his
friends, and denied that suchun agree
ment had been reached. He avoided
saying, however, that none was in con
templation, aud, in statements isued
for publication, criticized the dominant
labor group for its handling of the
amalgamation and uVdared a great op
portunity had been missed.
La Follette Eliminated.
Kot all was harmony in -the fusion
convention during the hour the plat
form and candidates were under dis
cussion. Heated debate developed also
over the choice of a name for the new
born political group. The forty-eighter
carried their unsm-eessful commit
tee fight, against the socialistic doc
trines of the radical laborites to the
floor. Puiauing the same tactics they
used throughout the platform discus
sion, they attempted to force their
wishes across through the use of Sen
ator La Follctte'a name.
. An 'embryo jtampede and a 45-min-Ote
demonstration for the Wiseonsiu
senator resulted from the injection of
this issue. But the well laid plans were
nullified by labor leaders, who blocked
demands for an immediate considera
tion of a platform said to be satisfac
tory to I -a Follette and which, it was
claimed, had licen concealed by "com
mittee intrigue." The laborites got
their platform before the convention
frst, and. although a minority report,
drawn, along lines said to he ciit
able to the Wisconsin senator, i pre
sented, the majority faction won.
. Rumblings heard behind the scenes
for two day burst upon the conven
tion during the heated platform dis
cussion with forty -eight era charging
the fii'fiwi party with being "Ws-rid-rien
by a ilnpie."
Atnid-t lb' uproar. when delegates
in ever nl nrr of the hull were clam

title's personal representative, sent in
word that the senator would not under

was adopted 4in afterward.

With La Follette removed as poten

left. An a result the delegates were
soon provided with an assortment from
which to choose, fhe list of names
placed in nomination included, besides
Chriatensen, Dudley Field Malone, New
York; Eugene V. Debs, the socialist
nominee; Henry Ford, Detroit; Louis
F. Post, assistant secretary of labor;
Governor Lynn J. Frazier of North Da

Claiming Morris J. Levin's Will Was
Not Properly Drawn.
Burlington, July 15. Mrs. Lena Lev
in, widow of Morris J. Levin, late of
the People's Department store in this
city, is to contest the will of her hus
band, under which she receives one
third of his property, the remainder
going to his two daughters and his five
sons. The appeal from the approval
and allowance of the will by the pro
bate court was entered in county court
yesterday. Charles Levin, special ad
ministrator of the estate, is made the
proponent in the case. 1
Ai-cording to the terms of the will of
the late Morris J. Levin, the real es
tate, which included the house where
he and his family resided at 171 North
Winooski avenue, all household furni
ture and furnhings of every kind, in
cluding piano, beds, bedding, carpels,
iwking utensils, pictures, linen, etc.,
which are now in the residence, are to
go to Mrs. Lena Levin, his widow. In
the will, this real estate and property,
according to Mr. Levin's judgment, is
valued at $6,000 for the real estate and
$2,000 for the household furniture, etc.
Mr. Levin also leaves to his wife his
automobile valued at $1,800, and such
sum of money, which, together with
the above property, shall represent
one-third of the value of the net es
tate, when just debts and obligation,
funeral expenses, etc., have leeii paid.
To his five sons. David, diaries, fla
briel, Samuel and Isaac, Mr. Levin
willed all his property rights and in

Boats Out to Wit

Sandy Hook, July 15. Resolute led
Shamrock across the starting line .to
day in the first America's cup race of
From the shore it was apparent that
Shamrock had made a poor start, not
crossing the line until after the handi
cap whistle had been blown at 12:02
o'clock. The yachts crossed the line on
the starboard tack.
Shamrock was over the. line at the
starting signal, and lifr skipper, Cap
tain William P. Burton, had to recross.
Meanwhile Resolute slipped over in first
place. Shamrock recrossed about 40
seconds after Resolute and immediate
Iv'stood after the, American boat, but
200 yards behind. According to yachts
men, Shamrocks start to-day was the
worst ever made by a Lipton boat.
1 he official starting times were: Res
olute 12:00:40, Shamrock 12:01 :3S.
It was also announced officially that
the time allowance would be six min
utes and 40 seconds, due to a change in
figures obtained by remeasuring the
Shamrock's sails.
.At 1:05 p. m., with both yachts!
standing off shore on a starboard tack.
Resolute was more than half a mile in
the lead and slightly to windward.
The wind breezed again to si knots at
this point in the race.
Sandv Hook. N. J., July 15. A
yachting armaHa gathered off the Hook
to-day for the first Americas cup race
in 17 years. Private craft, excursion
boats and airplanes speeding smith
ward across New York bay found nest
ling behind the great sandpit two
sloops that are the pride of Britain
and America Shamrock IV, challeng
er, with sleek green sides, and Reso
lute, defender, dazzling in her coat of
Aboard them were Captain William
P. Burton and his crew of British tars
and Captain Charles Francis Adams,
second, of Boston, with hia Yankee
sailormen. .
.With the start set for noon from
the Ambrose channel light vessel, the
rival skippers conversed with their
navigators regarding weather and wind
conditions which would determine the
course t ftt them by the race commit
tee. Th;v knew that the rule? called
for a windward and leeward course of
30 miles, but by the direction of the
wind alone would the course be chart
Vth silppers were hopeful of bring
ing the races to a brisk and decisive
close, with three straight victories, but
both were prepared "to sail five races
and to start all over again another day
if a race was declared off because the
yachts failed to finish within the six
hour limit.
Shamrock Gives Handicap.
With the Shamrock IV., because of
her great sail area, giving the defen
der a handicap of seven minutes and
one second--with possibly a second
more or lcs if re-measurement of the
challeager's sails alters figures -yachtsmen
still were divided on the
question of whether it ws more
blessed to give or receive time.
A ten knot breere from the south
west and a smwth ea were the favor
able conditions at 8-.:i0 o'clock for the
first rai.
In her almost barren hold the Sham
rock IV. has stored her mascots. - They
comprise the wooden American eagle
that was on the victorious yacht Amer
ica and boxes of four-leaf clovers from
Ireland and the I'nited States.
Sir Thomas Lipton, making his
fourth attempt to lift the bottomless
pew ter mug, emblem of sailing suprem
acy of the sea, cast his eye to the
weather and remarked:
"If the wind will hold its present
strength. I'll ak nothing better for
the lrih challenger. The Shamrcsk
IV. is a tine boat and I hope to win."'
A gentle rain fell in the night and
with clearing weather an even whole
sail bree.e sprang up from the soutli
wrt that held throughout the morning
hours. Weather sharps said the breeze
would haul more into the west by
noon, which would give the sloop a
15-mile brat to windward down the
Jersey coast and a run home.
There waa a gentle swell to the sea
and the red-hulled Ambrose channel
light vessel, where the yacht were to
make the start swung lazily on her
nrhiir chains. Not a crested wave was
to be seen.
Crews Astir.Early.
Captain Burton had his i-rew up
with the sun and before six o'clock a
boatload of sailors were on their way
from the tender Killarney to the chal
lenger to remove sail cover and send
head sails up with stops.
"My opinion is that the first hour
of to-day's ra" will trll the story of
the America's cup contet," said t He
Shamrock's skipper. "We will then
know what each sloop n do."
Skipper Adams al- had the Reo
lute's crew rarly atir and ready to
make sail. Covers were rrmmrS from
the defender mainail and brad-ail
klo Iv edged their way up the stay..
"We should have im complaint to
make of this weather."" aid laptain
Adams- "and I believe RmuJutr will
give a good a''iitit of herelf."

preparatory signal at 11:45,' wind and
weather permitting add a warning sig
nal 10 minutes -later. The starting
signal was set for 12 o'clock with a
handicap time to be taken two min
utes later. . 1
The American cook on Sir Thomas'
steam yacht Victoria was not dismayed
by Shamrock from Ireland stored in
thty hold of the challenger for good
"That won't help any," he said, as
he wagered a five-dollar bill with Sir
Thomas" valet, who put up a pair of
his employer's cast-off trousers.
The Yachta . Prepared.
Shamrock- was the first to get up
her mainsail, which flapped from side
to side in the freshening breeze. It
was a fine piece of cloth and seemed
visibly larger than Resolute's main
sail, which was hoisted shortly after.
The defender kited her largest club
top saif, while the Irish sloop also sent
up a dub top sail of large area. The
two racers swung easily at their moor
ing buoys, awaiting a tow to 'the start
ing line.
The wind dropped out as the morning
advanced and came in fitful puffs from
the southwest, about six knots in
strength. Gray clouds came out from
behind the Mersey headlands, screening
the sun and giving a constant threat of
rain. Offshore, the haze shut in thick
and curtained the Ambrose light vessel
from the shore observers. ,
Resolute, disdaining a tow. broke out
her headsails at 10:22 o'clock, cast off
from her mooring buoy and headed
away to the eastward for the starting
Shamrock followed herdthin less
than a minute, breaking out her head
sails and standing away toward the
starting line, a half -mile or ' more
astern of the American sloop. The wind
was still light from the westward. .
The race committee boat, the wean
tug Barrington, came up to the Am
brose light ship and took her position
at the starting line at 10:15 o'clock.
She was soon followed by a line of ex
cursinn craft crowded with passengers
who lined the rails from stem to stem,
watching, the two racing sloops as
they went easily through the water
seaward in the light airs.
The ocean was as smooth as a mill
potfti. Here and there large soft spots
were observed, evidence of the fitful
breeie that sometimes blew oight
knots in strength and then fell away
to an Irishman a hurricane, which is up
and down the mainmast.
Hunting for wind was apparently not
to the liking of the Shamrock's skip
per, for on the way to the light snip,
he took a tow, while Resolute moved
under hA- own sail.
Resolute slipped easily througlr the
water under command of Captain
Adams, a descendant and namesake of
a former amljsador to Great Britain
and himself now treasujer of Harvard
The excursion fleet clusteredasround
the starting line like minnows around
a breaftcrumn ana set a smokescreen
that would have been the envy of any
tonvoy service.
The haze was so thick that specta
tors on shore could not see the lightship
and the sloops were lost to view within
three miles of the starting line.
The breere was scanviy strong
enrmgh t- atir the- flags on the racing
trail. Resloute reached the start at
11:15 but Shamrock was nearly half
an hour later.
Decision bv the race committee on a
course southwest by south would carry
the yachts from Ambrose lightship to
a turning point a couple of miles off
Ashburv park. With tho hoisting of
the course signal, the mark boat Aileen
Morse, under the command of Captain
Blii. steamed away to set the turning
mark a white fl.aVt carrying a red
ball off the proper position fifteen
miles away.

Barre People Pay Respects to Those
Who Are to Go to" Portland,
Me. Mr. Hollister to
Head Westbrook
An informal farewell reception given
in the parlors of the Universalist
church last evening had as its guests,
Principal 0. K. Hollister, wife, Mrs.
Hollister, an9 daughter, Miss Rachel,
while surrounding these were many of
their friends. Mr. Hollister, gome days
ago, presented to the board of directors
at (ioddard seminary his resignation
as principal on the advice of his phy
sician. Last evening this highly, esteemed
family enjoyed the company of a group
of their intima&e friends ana tor sev
eral hours enjoyed their company and
sociability. Mrs. Hollister, soon after
reaching the parlors, was presented a
large bouquet or pinK roses Dy tne ia
dies' union. All formalities were omit
ted and, aa one large family, the ac
quaintances and friends, of the family
passed the evening, ladies of the com
mittee serving, meanwhile, reiresn
ments of ice cream and cake.
About August first. Mr. Hollister
leaves Barre for Portland, Me., to ac
cept the presidency of Westbrook Bemi
nary, a co-educational school founded
bv the Universalist denomination 00
vears ago. The topography about this
institution conforms with the ideals
presented by Mr. Hollister's physician,
level surroundings and sea air oeing
the chief factors. Westbrook is a well
established institution with fine build
ing and equipment, which last year
accommodated about 100 students. The
Hollister residence will be in the build
ings of Westbrook.
' The loss to Barre of .such people as
Mr: Hollister and his family is inesti
mable and needless to say, the news of
their Intended departure was received
Willi regrri iiy uirnua in ia uij mm
surrounding lifwns.
LK)king into the mirror of history of
Goddard, one sees a decided change in
the institution since tile days of 1S!7,
when Professor Hollister ascended to
the chair he now relinquishes. Looking
till longer due may see his first days
at the seminary, 30 years ago, when,
after graduating from Tufts college
with "the bachelor of arts degree, and
later with the master of arts degree in
physics and chemistry, he became an
instructor at the school, then attended
bv nearly 100 pupils. Aide from teach
in:; mathematics and chemistry, he
coached the athletio teams, playing
uuarter-back with the seminary team
during the first season.. That athletic
spirit has never in the least stiWded,
and. whenever the school team is out
on the rampus for practice or a game,
the keenly interested "O. K.," as all
alumni and students remember Kim,
is seldom absent.
Then to return to the progress of
the school one recalls that in H7 but
Hi students comprised the graduating
class of that veax whereas 1020 sent
out a class of lt.1, the largest in the
history of the institution on its 61st
anniversary- The attendance increased
from 100 to -'HO, the number enrolled
at frtidard during the past, school year.
With the evolution of time Principal
Hollister has kept the buildings
equipped with modetn conveniences,
the alumni building or dining hall
apartment being the latest addition.
The endowment fund during those 23
years has increased $100,000, leaving
io-dar a fund of SlfiljOOO.
For Ihe past 10 years Mr. Hollister
has lieen president of the I'niversalist
association of Vermont and the prov
incc of Quebec, and has been a trus
tee of the seminary as well. Both he
and his family have taken active part
in the affairs of the I niversalist
church, being widely known in that
Miss Agnes Safford, preceptress at
the seminary during the past few
years, was present last evening at the
reception and. likewise, is to become
a-sociatrd with Westbrook seminary.
At the opening of the tall term, Miss
SatTord accepts a similar position as
that held at Goddard, leaving the
Barre institut ion chiefly because West
brook is located in the same city as her
home, Portland, Me. It was from this
institution the graduated six years
ago, coming to rcarre to join ino ihctii
tv board of Uisldard.
The reception last evening waa in
charge of a committee composed of
Mrs. . Frank Jackson. Miss Can-ie
W heehs k. Mrs. Hattie Whitcomb, Mrs.
Annie Burr and Mrs. K. T. Mower.

rium varied treatment has been tried
in an effort to counteract the effect of
the poison, but to no avail, the infec
tion growing steadily worse.

have not been made, although it is ex
pected the burial will be in Tunbridge.

0, 18iil, and had always resided in this
vicinity. He married on July 7, 1882,
