Hartford, May 6. As far ha en
thusiasm Is concerned to-day's con
vention wns Ihe tamest In a great
many years, the actual evidence of j n
terest In any person being the ap
plause last night at the mention of
MoKlnley's pnd Itoosevelt'a names
and the solitary reference to Secre
tary Taft to-day when National Com
mitteeman Brooker read the plat
form. The lameness was not due to
the delegates Individually, but to the
lack of a leader to start a cheer
a-going There wns one funny Inci
dent along this line. As tho dele
gates went Into the auditorium last
night: they saw a slight. Individual
tacking up large picture of Hughes.
The pictures looked mirlits against
the background of flags and bunting,
but. actually few delegates made
more than passing comment. Hp In
the gallery was the Hughes boomer.
He wns a Mr. (illbert, attorney, for
merly of Ierby, but now of New
York. Cn the floor In front of him
wns a large picture of Hughes, to
which he had tied a rope. His scheme
was to let the picture down from the
gallery If a rheer for Taft was start
ed. But Taft's name was not men
tioned nnd the Hughes man folded up
the picture, pocketed the rope and
went back to the Allyn house to swap
Hughes buttons for Taft. buttons
wth "Souvenir" Taylor nnd John V.
Oiffey of New Haven. The latter
knew (Jllhert quite well nnd took de
light In bringing up the most loyal
Taft supporter' to swap Hughes but
tons. Several score of delegates went
home with a pocketful of Hughes
buttons, for which they had no use,
The presentation of the name of
Major Wikoslee, as a delegate took
every body by surprise. It occasion
ed no little comment and a variety
of reports. The humor In It. was
that Mr. Blaneslee had been credited
with Hughes leanings and some del
ostites got rather worried over this in
view of the hours of excitement over
the Bulkeley-Brnndegee situation. A
meeting of the 'New Haven delegation
was held this morning and at It Sen
ator Butterworth put the question di
rect to Major Plake.d"e as to his pres
idential prefer' nco. He promptly an
swered that he was a Taft man, and
confirmed It by popping up to move

The preliminary propectus or scop
of the planned work of the society t
was made public yesterday as follows:
1. "After all, what the Insane most
need is a friend I" ,
By co-ordinating the friendly lm j
pulses of those, who,- if they but !
knew how, would gladly help the In- j
sane, tho Society for Mental Hyglenft
can prove itself that friend.
2. It Is the aim of the Society foil '
Mental Hygiene to become a perman- '
ent agency for education and reform
In the field of nervous and ' mental
diseases; an agency for education al-
ways, for reform as long as radical
changes may be needed.
3. The chief object of the Society!
for Mental Hygiene shall be the im
provement of conditions among thosa
actually Insane and confined, and the
protection of the mental health of
the public at large.
Conditions In this neglected field
may be bettered by arousing through
