the Interest of the veterans of the war.
Commander Raymond - detailed what - waa
done by the department committee1 on leg
islation, especially in securing the passage
of tha veterans' preference bill, which re
ceived but one adverse vote In the entire
legislature. But he warned that "com
rades should remember that the law will
not aid them In procuring positions for
which they Are not qualified or In holding
plaoea tbe duties of which they. are !tv
com pert ent to perform." He referred also
to the fact that the legislature provided an
appropriation of $760 annually to help de
fray the expenses of the department. The
bill to secure the making ' of a roster ot
every soldier Jiving In Iowa failed through
misunderstanding' in the senate aa to Its
scope, but partial amends were made by
providing that In the taking of the census
there should be an enumeration of all
soldiers separata, with record of their mil
itary service. The legislature also sent a
special (Committee to visit the Soldiers'
Home and their recommendation were
generous and the legislature appropriated
largely .for the home. .In view of all this
the commander asked the encampment to
make suitable acknowledgment to the leg

had hoped there would not be a loss of
membership in the department, yet It was
too much to expect at this time. The ag

EENMVIH JOHNSON WITHDRAWS HIS NAME
State Chairman' Yossg Eaters Into
. Bitter . Criticism of . Berkaam'a
Administration and Blaek-
. bars; Praises Bryan. .
LOnsVILLB, June- a The democratic
convention was called to order today by
Hon. A. H. Toung. the present state chair
man. An overnight surprise for the dele
gates was th announced withdrawal from
the race for eniporary chairman of Ben
jamin Johnson, the anti-machine candi
date. Although the convention was called
to elect delegate to th St. Louis conven
tions this feature was lost sight of In the
long and bitter struggle waged for the
contfol of the state central committee.
Governor Beckham and the administra
tion force have been supporting Lewis
McQuow for chairman of the state central
committee. United States Senators Black
burn and McCreery and Cobgreasmsn
Smith opposed the governor and have been
supporting Congressman J. N. Keh'oe .for
the coveted position.
The" opposition played a strong card In
announcing that Benjamin Johnson of Nel
son, which Is Governor Beckham's county,
would be their candidate for temporary
qhelrman. No sooner had this been given
out than a number of" Beckham aupporters
went to Bearflstown and after a long ses
sion returned and announced that Mr.
Johnson would withdraw.
State Chairman Toung In his address to
the convention bitterly arraigned Governor
Beckham's administration and denounced
the 'governor's course In the present cam
paign as calculated to disrupt the "party.
He waa -alternately cheered and hissed.
Curing the course of bis speech Chalrmkn
foung appealed to 'tho Bryan element by
warning them It the men supporting ths
administration secure control ot the ma
chinery -the principles advocated by Bryan
would be east aside, . .. , .
OA the question of a presidential candi
date Senator Blackburn spoke In favor of
an unlnstruoied delegation. . Mention ' of
names of Parker and McClellan brought
only perfunctory applause. Senator Black
burn declared with much emphasis that he
still believed that the party waa right tn
1896, and 1000, , He characterised the re
port' that Bryan would bolt as an in
famous He and paid an eloquent tribute to
the ' character of th ' Nebraskan. Gov
ernor Beckham waa declared the nomine
for temporary chairman of the convention
