(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Aug. l.-(8peclal Tele
gram.) There are persistent rumors that
Judge Charles E. Magoon of Nebraska,
who holds the dual position of governor of
thn Panama Canal cone and United States
minister to Panama, Is to be appointed a
member of the Philippines commission and
vice governor general of the Philippines,
with a view to his ultimate appointment
as governor general of our far eastern
possessions. It Is not expected that Ma
goon will be relieved from his duties In
Panama before the first of September, but
It is understood his transfer has been
agreed upon by President Roosevelt and
Secretary TafU The fact la that Magoon
has made good in the Isthmus. He ha de
veloped exceptional qualities both as a
diplomat and as an executive officer and
he Is held In large esteem by the Pana
mans. He Is Just and fearless, qualifica
tions which the president particularly ad
mires, and as the first Philippine assembly
will be the upper house of the Philippine
legislature. It Is important that the Philip
pine commission should be of the very
highest type, and the president. It is now
understood, is casting about for men of
ability to fill these very trying positions.
During his service In the War department
Judge Magoon had occasion to make a
close study of the Philippines, and It is
questioned if there is any man In the
country who Is as thoroughly equipped for
the place at the head of the Philippine
government aa "Charley" Magoon of Ne
Railroad Men Leave.
General Passenger Agent E. L. Ixmax
and General Freight Agent E. H, Wood of
the Union Pacific left Washington today,
together with other big guns of the railroad
world, for Philadelphia and New York,
having accomplished considerably more
than they expected with the Interstate Com
merce commission In relation to the new
railroad rate law, which goes Into effect
August 'A. After the conferences this
morning Chairman Knapp of the commis
sion Intimated to the railroad men that
they would be expected to make every effort
to enforce law, but that physical Impossi
bilities would not be expected of them.
Both Mr. Lomax and Mr. Wood expressed
themselves as satisfied with the conference
had with the commission.
They found the commission open to sug
gestions and willing to aid wherever pos
sible to bring about a general and compre
hensive publication of tariffs, .both freight
and passenger, as contemplated by section
6 of the act. The commission, however,
frankly stated to the railroad officials that
they could do nothing until after the law
went Into effect, but they suggested that a
committee be appointed from the railroads
la order that they might have the benefit
of the knowledge of ttiese gentlemen to
aid them In iarmulatlng rule relative to
printing, publishing and filing of tariffs.
While it was not suggested by the commis
sion, it waa Intimated that the committee
should be a standing committee and it is,
therefore, expected that a committee of two
persons each from the trunk line, central
traffic, southwestern and transcontinental
divisions will be appointed to represent
thcae interests In all matters relating to
section 6 of the act. The gentlemen who
were present at the conference yesterday
and today will have to report the result of
their conference with the Interstate Com
merce commission to their chiefs and the
Appointment of the committee undoubtedly
will follow to continue the work already
begun. Being east, Mr. Lomax will make
a visit to all of hla eastern agents, return

DES MOINES, Aug. 1. -(Special Tele
gram.) Harmony was forced upon about
RiXi delegates to the republican state 'con
vention today. The delegates did not like
It. They grumbled and growled, but the
program was carried through. Hon.
Thomas D. Henly, a Cummins man from
Fort DodKO moved and State printer Ber
nard Murphy seconded a motion to accept
unanimously the report of the credentials
committee to seat Perkins delegates In Jef
ferson county, and the Cummins delegation
from every other contested county. Before
the vote was taken up Mr. Murphy and
other leaders of the stand-patters went
among the stand-pai delegates and urged
them to vote for the motion. Their action
was cheered by the progressives. The mo
tion was carried, but It can not be said
that It was unanimous.
The credentials committee was In session
till 6:30 before reaching a report. The state
central committee which adjourned last
night at midnight to meet this morning at
7 o'clock waa unable to get any nearer
n solution of the problem and it wa
finally decided to allow the matter to go
to the convention with the recommendation
of the committee standing for the seating
of the Perkins delegates from Audubon.
Dallas, Jasper. Jefferson and Wappello and
the Cummins men In the other counties.
This would still have given Cummins a
majority, but It would have been amall.
Through deals which there Is every reason
to suspect wer handled by the leader
of fhe party on both side the Second dis
trict caucus aeevptd the Cummins dele
gates from Scott county and this gave th
committee on credentlsls to the Cummin
men. Delegates from tho five counties
given to Perkins were heard by the cre
dentials committee and the report finally
reached. It was not a unanimous report,
though there whs no minority report. Sen
ator Healy reported for the committee that
five of the eleven members dlMentd from
the action as to Jasper and Wappello and
three as to the action on Jefferson.
One Ballot on F.arh Contest.
The report of the credential committee
gave Cummins SI? votes. Perkln fi4 and
Rathhun 104. A delegation of one vote In
Muscatine county resulted In giving Cum
mlns 933 on the nominating ballot. For
the entire ticket the vote followed closely
the vote on governor, one vote was suf
ficient on every cam .no and half of th
ticket was nominated by acclamation. Th
vote for contested place follows:
For governor, Cummins, 933; Perkins, fcOJ;
For lieutenant governor, Garst, 917; Ray
Secretary of state Hayward, 856 1-1;
Richards, 476. Hltes, 308 1-6.
Attorney general Bycrs, 992; Cloud, 510;
Railroad commissioners W. L. Eaton,
1.34S; D. J. Palmer, 92C; Buttles, 641; Sits,
It was after 8 o'clock before the conven
tion udjourned after the last nomination.
Speecli of Temporary Chairman.
The republican state convention met In
the Auditorium. There were not aeata for
the 1,040 delegates in the parquet circle so
one district delegation wa assigned chain
on the stage and two other delegates were
given seat In the dress circle. Every seat
and all the available room was occupied by
spectator. No prevlou tate convention
exceeded such Interest In De Molne or
Judge Towner, who was introduced
temporary chairman, spoke In part
I desire to congratulate the republican
of Iowa In this most prosperous year of
this most marvellously prosperous era
that we see in this swelling flood of pros
perity the consummate triumph and vin
dication of republican principles and poll
cles. We live under a republican adminis
tration, with a tepubllcan president, a r-
fiublican house unil a republican senate
n a republican nailon from ocean to ocean
and a republican suite from river to river
with H republican national sentiment so
strong that even democratic stat conven
tions endoise I lie administration, and a
republican Mute sent Inient so strong that
not a single county of the ninety-nine can
tie longer ciash.d ns democratic.
These two wordn. "republican" and
"prosperity," seem formed for union. Tiny
hih lliH harmonious complement one of
the other, o I hut with the success of one
come the tiiumph of the other, and with
the failure of either the downfull and dis
aster of the older. Happy the nation that
ran harness fciirh steeds to its car of
progtess. it Is like the yoking of Phoehu
and Aurora to the chariot of the un.

The president In his meesiig to congress
Inst Dei ember put fust in importance th
qui'Stinji of government control of th
gieat coi poiatiofi doing an interstate bus
iness. For many years this has been a
most important and diftlcult question, not
only in this country, but n otheih. In re
tpoiisn to this the original iuter'tate traffic
act and the Sherman art were passed,
loiter thn Elkins law and the rate bill
passed by the last congress lias boeti
placed upon the statute Uok. All thes
laws are republican laws framed by re
publicans, afsed li" -" publicans and are
ti It g (iifoited by republic ans.
The additional powers given by the new
laws will greatly strengthen the hands of
the government. And the work is not
over; it is but begun. They will hardly
turn from Roosevelt to Bryan.
The position of the republican party a4
of Its president Is that the power of go,
