Nothinr as usual not even the perfunctory meetings of the committee that drafta a platform.' This Republi can national convention anent nn I day trying to agree on something wmcn ine. senate baa spent a year debating the treaty of peace and tho prospect is that t last anoth er day will be spent doing the same thing. This gives more time for the negotiation between lead era and more time for deals and transactions on second and third choices. Briefly the situation as to candidates has changed in this respect: - - - General Leonard Wood is dan gerously near the goal and his crafty manager. Frank Hitchcock, realising that the kej the whole pussle is ln New York, Massachu setts and Pennsylvania, ia making Inroads in the delegations from those states. ' The counter-move of the Lowden forces and, indeed, the old guard who don't . want Wood nominated, is to hold Penn sylvania and New York and Massa chusetts eolid for the first few bal lots at least Accordingly the New .York delegation held a meet ing and. talked a lot about solidar ity and sticking together and ex ertinx tha moat Influence by tactics rot unifr Tffistead of division. No wow was taken and '"many New York delegates would have liked to get Senator Wadsworth, who was in the chair . committed .- but he maintained a discreet silence. . : Yote for Butler. ' There are several Wood dele-1 gates in the New York contingent and several in the Pennsylavania unit, but the New York folks have nrarttaillv umd to vote tor Nich olas Murray Butler for a tew bal lots, which really means that tne anti-Wood people are dominant for the time being. Over in the Massa chusetts delegation tho Wood forces are pounding away at the Coolidge votes with fair success. If Gen eral Hitchcock can once break down the unity of the New York, Pennsylvania or Massachusetta rieioratinna. ha will win out Al ready his boring tactics are grow ing a bit oncomiortaote 10 nis op ponents.

Till LODGE REFUSES TO SPARE GAVEL IIUTE'S PEACE Vragt Symbol of Order Wherever He Gees Other Lighter Twists To the Convention. (Br United Praw.) Chicago, June 10. Senator Lodge keeps his hand on the convention gavel all the time during the ses sions. The speakers' table is on a long runway from the main plat form out through the press section. Every time Lodge walks back and forth from the table to the plat form he drags the big heavy gavel along with him. Hoover supporters became more active today and everybody in the convention lobbies was being but tonholed by pretty girls. Out in Kansas, Miss Lizzie woos- ter, state superintendent of educa tion, is seeking to prevent all the men school teachers from smoking. But she was right in the thick of the cigar smoke in the Kansas headquarters today and didn't seem to mind it a bit Dixie Women Defiant Southern women who do not share that section of the country's opposition to woman's suffrage were picketing the convention to day. "Five million women voters of Dixie- want their rights un- trammeled,' banners said. Theodore Roosevelt Jr., former ly a lieutenant-colonel and now prominent in the American Legion, has been advising with members of the resolutions, committee on the soldier bonus plank.

Night sees strange spectacles in Peacock Alley, hotel lobbies and on fashion able promenades. Nightly promenades are particl pated .in by perspiring coatless men, who keep on their vests to hide their suspenders. "Hicks" Gets Chance. In the past lounge lizards stared curiously at "hicks" who paraded Peacock Alley. That has been re versed during the convention.' The so-called "hick" stares at the fash ionable evening dresser. . The high cost of living, the war, unrest and prohibition are blamed for the large number of plain folks here by Mrs. J. A. Martin, Chicago suffragist. Mrs. Martin, who is a supporter of Senator Johnson for president says the number of "just plain peo ple" attending, the convention is "mazing." "It means the people are up in arms and want a man of the people, she said. "And those here are just an indication of the feeling throughout the country." Mrs. H. M. Youmans, Waukesha, Wis.,' prominent suffrage leader who attended the 1918 convention. says she notes a difference between tho last and present convention. , PALMER ENDS "POCKET VETO" s Washington, June 10. Attorney General Palmer has made an in formal ruling, which has been com municated to ' President Wilson, that the chief executive has ten days after the adjournment of con gress in which to sign bills and res olutions.

American citizens and property. -There was no direct reference to intervention in Mexico, but it was declared? that the party should stand ' for "insistence upon the maintenance of order" in Mexico. The proposal for a mandate over Armenia was condemned - and the action of congress , in passing a peace resolution was approved.
