It was learned that It had been in the
Morten sen saloon. As soon as It waa learned
that the safe In the aaloon had been blown
the police were notified by telephone, but
by the time an officer arrived on the arena
there wae not the stlghteat trace of the
cracksmen, although there waa plenty of
evidence of their work.
It Is believed the burglars entered the
saloon by the back door, which had evi
dently been forced open with a Jimmy. It
waa found open and the robbers are sup

The robbers had evidently mad careful
preparations for blowing the aafe and their
work Indicated they were no amateurs. The
dock In the saloon stopped, at 1:67, Indi
cating the time of tbe explosion. Several
holes were drilled In the safe door near
the lock while soep was uned to close up
all cracks and openings..' To deaden the
sound of tbe explosion a big horse blanket
was placed over the safe. The blanket,

TWENTY-EIGHT STATES REPRESENTED
Governor Cnasalna Gets Off nt Wroaar
Handoar to Meet Appoint-meet.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DBS MOINES, Sept. 2J. (8neclal.)-The
fact that there has been so much political
activity in the state of Jowa this year has
seemingly completely overshadowed the
fact that there I to ba one of tbe greatest
and most noteworthy gatherings In the
country here this ..year, a convention of
delegates from esch state In the union ap
pointed by the governors of the statss for
the purpose 6f discussing and formulating
eom plan for, securing a constitutional
amendment for a direct vote of th people
for United States .senators. Ths conven
tion will be held at the statehouse Decem
ber C, a trine over two monthe from now.
The flrst move Jor th convention was In
a resolution . psased at the last session of
the legislature authorising Governor Cum
min to call such a convention. At this
time there are twenty-eight state, or a
little more than .half, that have made the
necessary appointment, of five delegates to
attend the convention. Twenty-four stales
are, on record a favoring the elevtln or
senators by the people and seventeen of
these are on record aa petitioning congress
to submit the matte, tp the people. Seven
others are on record as making application
for a convention r for . proposing such an
amendment. These seven are Michigan,
Minnesota, Nevada, . Nebraska, Oregon,
Iowa. Montana, . Ths seventeen petitioning
congress are New Hampshire, Kentucky,
Illinois. Wyoming. Ohio, Utah, Florida,
Washington,, NorthDakota. North Carolina,
Idaho, Pennsylvania,. Indiana, Colorado,
South Dakota, Kansaa. The states that
have thus far answered the Invitation of
Governor Cummins to make the appoint
ment of delegates tp the convention In Dea
Moines next November are California, Colo
rado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kannss, Ken
tucky, Louisiana,,, Michigan, Minnesota.
Montana. Nebraska, New Jersey, North
Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota,
Texas, Washington, . West Virginia, Wy
oming, Georgia, .North Dakota, Pennsyl
vania, Tennessee. Utah, Virginia, Wiscon
sin and New York. . The governors of
Maine and Massachusetts have answered
the invitation to the effect that the Isws of
those states do not. give them authority to
make the appointment of delegatea and
hence they have necessarily declined. Under
the provisions of the federal law. If two
thirds of the legislatures of ths states pe
tition congress tp submit the matter-to a
constitutional convention the matter must
be so submitted. . This means thirty states.
It Is partly for. the' purpose of Inducing
enough other ststes.to make the petition to
bring It up to thirty, that tbe convention
here Is to be held. ,,-
