Yes Union has some and also some

and believed he was getting worse

ball. He said he would rather see
a base ball game than to eat. Well,
we had often wondered why he was
no fatter. Some of the ladies are
also enthusiasts and their encourage
ment in the way of showing their ap
preciation of good plays, gives pep
to the playing. ,

Prohib Delegates Slow in Arriving for
Convention Many Expected to
Arrive Here Tuesday Evening
Close friends of W. J. Bryan say
that Mr. Bryan will not accept the
prohibition nomination for president,
though he may be drafted for the
place by the national prohibition con
vention which meets in Lincoln
Wednesday morning. The commoner
has indicated that he will support on
ly dry candidates for congress, those
favoring the strict enforcement or
the eighteenth amendment known as
the Volstead law.
As has been already indicated, del
egates to the convention have s!iovn
a unanimous preference for V.'. J.
Bryan as the prohibition standard
bearer and some at least entertain
the idea that if he Is drafted he will
accept the nomination. The friends
of Mr. Bryan have hastened therefore
to trhow cold water on the fore
casted action of the convention by
pointing out that under no circum
stances will he accept and makt; the
race as the leader of a new army.
Meantime the preparations for the
hirteenth national convention of the
prohibitionists are being pushed
with considerable energy. Monday
evening twenty-five delegates had ar
rived in the city and it was annonnc
ed that headquarters would be op
ened at room 105 at the Lindell hotel
Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock. The
bulk of the delegates will reach Lin
coln during Tuesday. Tuesday morn-
ng twenty-five delegates from Cali
fornia are scheduled to reara the
city. . New York has indicated that
will send fifty delegates. The
thirty delegates from Ohio will be
under the leadership of Mrs. Violi
Romans, prohibition candidate for
United States senator, to fill the place
which is now left vacant by the nom-
nation of "Warren G. Harding as the
republican candidate for president.
With the Pennsylvania delegation
will be Mrs. Flora Diefenderber, can
didate for congressman-at-large.
Mrs. Mamie Colvin, a member of the
New York delegation, ran for lieu
tenant governor two years ago.
The prohibitionists are divided as
are the republicans and democrats on
the league of nations treaty. A
plank in the platform will favor the
treaty with reservations. A plank to
punish lynching will be inserted.
At the conference of the members
of the national executive committee
to be held Tuesday morning the mat
ter of availability of candidates for
president and vice president will be
considered. If there is no hope that
Bryan and Sunday may be made the
standard bearers then the convention
will have to turn to other prospects.
A delegate said that Mr. Bryan will
prove to be far . and away the best
vote getter of any man who could be
nominated by the prohibitionists for
president.. He pointed out that even
with only a portion of the feminine
vote being available approximately
17,000.000 women will be able to cast
their ballots at the November elec
tion. The delegate is sure that Bry
an would, get tne most of these wo
man votes.
Delegates Arrive Slowly
Delegates to the national prohibi
tion convention are coming in slow
ly, less than a hundred and fifty le
ing estimated to have arrived in Lin
coln. Tuesday morning. .A number
of delegates are expected to reach

that such a treaty could have been
