An Associated Press dispatch from
Now York, says: The question as to
whether officers of the American
Steel and Wire company ordered the
destruction of tho evidence used in
the so-called Jackson wire pool cases
before or after the filing of the pend
ing dissolution suit against the
United States Steel corporation was
answered. Frank Baxekos, vice
president of the wire company, testi
fied before Commissioner Brown that
he had given tho order to George A.
Cragln, his assistant sales manager,
at Worcester, Mass., in September
or early in October last. The suit
was filed on October 26. Baxekes
testified further that ho had given
orders after tho dissolution of the
wire pools tliroe years ago, for the
destruction of all papers connecting
his company with the pool, but the
order had been only partly executed.
It was due to this oversight that
the papers now in question came into
tho hands of the government.
This testimony camo somewhat as
a surprise, as it was elicited by the
steel corporation's attorneys nttr

A Walla Walla, Wash., dispatch,
carried by the Associated Press,
says: When the delegates in the
democratic state convention were
called upon to express their prefer

was made to stampede the conven

However, stood firm and won out.
With the roll call of counties
nearly completed, Pend d'Oreille
county cast its solid vote for Bryan.
In an instant the convention hall
was in an uproar.
Delegation after delegation, which
had cast votes for Wilson, changed
to Bryan but the Clark men stood
firm and a half dozen Wilson dele
gations switched their votes to Clark.
When the vote was finally tabu
lated it showed 455 for Clark, 135
for Bryan, 106 for Wilson and ifi
The platform adopted not only
advocated presidential preference
primaries, the initiative, referendum
and recall, publicity of campaign
contributions before election and the
limiting or campaign expenditures,
but advocated a non-partisan elec
tion law, applying to all county and
city officers, a direct primary for all
state officers and the selection of
United States senators by the Ore
gon plan. The platform also advo

organization wag gwept out of power
by the "reorganization" faction after
a fight lasting nearly two years.
The "reorganized " victory was
complete and no resistance was made
by the regulars after the vote on
permanent chairman of the state con
vention showed that their opponents
controlled the convention by 110
votes to 73. The party has been
split for more than a year and two
state committees have directed the
destinies of the Pennsylvania democracy.
The "reorganizes," - under the
leadership of George W. Guthrie,
former mayor of Pittsburgh; Vance
McCormick, former mayor of Harris
burg, and Congressman Palmer,
named a complete state ticket,
elected twelve delegates at large and
twelve alternates to Baltimore and
gave them binding instructions to
vote for Woodrow Wilson "as long
as his name remains before the con
vention;" selected six electors at
large; adopted their own platform
and ratified the selection of the "re-
organizers' " state committee in
electing Mr. Guthrie state chairman.
The state ticket follows:
Auditor General Robert E. Cress
State Treasurer William H.
Berry, Delaware county.
Congressmen at Large George H.
Shaw, Westmoreland; Joseph How
