taining, a short Interview with Cardinal
Beraflno Vannuteltt, whose candidature for
pope will be supported ' by Germany and
Austria, besides a powerful Italian Influ
ence. Vannutelll said:
"I have had a firm conviction that the
pope's successor will follow the same Una
of action In not giving way on the question
of temporal power that Leo XIII has pur
sued, but endeavoring to avoid an open
conflict with the Italian government, es
pecially after the tactful attitude of th.
Italian king during the pope's Illness."
Vannutelll was very reserved on the sub
ject of th. conclave, but said:
"I expect It. will prove long and difficult
I do not believe that any power would us.
Us fight of veto against any '.candidate.
The aacred college contains many eminent
men, capable worthily to take up the papal
burden. I hope the Holy Ghost will Inspire
th. conclave to elect a worthy successor."

and picked them up.
The flrtt fight occurred when a truck
loaded with freight, escorted by polioe,
bound for the J3urllngton depotrwas pass

of Harrison and Peoria streets. A howl
ing mob of a thousand men and boys was

time the wagon was ready to make th.
return trip, and for half a mil. 1t pursued

epithets and pelting them with sticks and
stones, without, however, seriously injuring
any on..' The climax came at Congress
street and Ogden avenue, when a private
watchman who had no particular occasion
to mix in the affair, fired at one of the
mob. Tho shot went wild, but greatly In
flamed the crowd.
Th. officers went at the mob with flsta
and clubs. They wer. greatly outnumbered,
but fought well together, and In less than
three minutes every member of th. mob
who could use his feet was doing so to the
beat of his ability. -

LOUISVILLE, July 15. Spectacular In th.
extremo waa the opening session of the
Kentucky republican atate convention at
the auditorium this afternoon and the
situation Is full of possibilities for more
pyrotechnics before the final adjournment.
The salient features of tho afternoon
gathering wer. an Indorsement of Presi
dent Roosevelt's candidacy in 1904, which
upset the calculations of several shrewd
leaders, and what amounted almost to a
stamped to former Governor William O.
Bradley, after Colonel Belknap had on a
test vote for temporary chairman appar
ently shown that he could win handa down
on the first ballot.
The convention was called to order by
State Chairman C. M. Barnett, who an
nounced the business before the convention
to be the nomination of a full state ticket.
There are three candidates for governor.
Colonel Morris B. Belknap, a Louisville
wholesale merchant; Augustus E. Willson
of Louisville and Attorney General Clifton
J. Pratt, th. only man on the Tavlor ticket
In 1809 to secure his office. Chairman Bar
nett announced that th. stat. central com
mittee would waive its right to arbitrarily
nam. th. temporary chairman and called
Belknap Wins First Hent.
Major William C. Owens was named by
th. Belknap forces, while Charles Blartford
received a large- part of the combined
strength of the Willson and Pratt forces.H
Th. result waa a vote of 1,671 to 675 In favor
of Owens. This vote, cast fi th. contest
for governor, would enable Belknap to win,
even should h. lose the contested Louis
ville delegation of $49 votes.
The committees on credentials, rules and
order of business, permanent organizations
and resolutions were announced.
Ffrmer Governor Bradley then offered
the following resolution:
Resolved. That We. th rmihtlran nf
Kentucky, express our heartfelt approval
and admiration of the administration of
Theodore Roosevelt, and that we heartily
Indorse him for the republican nomination
for president in 1904.
The resolution was read by Governor
Bradley without having first obtained con
sent, but It was unanimously adopted by.
Immediately afterward Mr. Bradlev waa
given a tremendous ovation. In response
to calls he made an address, in which he
appealed for honest elections and honest
conventions, and referred Indirectly to the
contest over the Louisville delegation by
pleading that the delegates nominate, only
a man whose methods had been fair and
honest and on. who could command united
The speech was powerful and hundreds
of delegates gathered about him, shouting
that he was the man who most nearly re
sembled the picture he had himself drawn.
If Bradley had been placed In nomination
men ha would have received an almost
unanimous vote on the assumDtlon that
his nomination would wipe out any bitter
ness caused by the Louisville contest. Mr.
Bradley has been supporting A. E. wniann
who is contesting the entire Louisville del
egation,, to whom credentials were given
by, the men at the head of, the local party
machine. : .' .
After half an hour of steadily growing
excitement the convention was auddaniv
adjourned .until I tonight. The report of
the committee on credentials was not
ready, however, and another adjournment
waa taken till tomorrow.
The delay In the committee waa , caused
by the contest over the Louisville delega
tion, th. Willson forces developing unex
pected strength. While waiting for news
the delegates called Incessantly for Brad
ley, showing that the effects of th. out
burst of th. afternoon had not been dis
sipated. Th. Bradley sentiment, so sud
denly but strongly developed, unsettled the
calculations of the politicians and silenced
predictions as to the outcome. Commis
sioner of Internal Revenue Terkes made
a speech during the evening, Indicating his
preference for Belknap.
Former Governor Bradley stated late to
night that he was not a candidate for th.
governorship of Kentucky. H. was asked
If h. was not a prospective candidate and
said he was not
