DES MOINES. Dec. 2. (Special) Till
the delegates to the senatorial convention
assemble next Wednesday It will be Im
possible to tell whether the convention
called by the last legislature for the pur
pose of endeavoring to secure a consti
tutional amendment providing for a direct
vote of the people on United States sena
tors Is to be a success or not. Tho con
vention in any event, whether well at
tended or otherwise, will be the biggest
thing In Des Moines next week. The
resolution passed by the legislature last
winter authorizing the governor to call
the convention waa drawn up by Senator
Lewis, of Clarlnda, after he had advised
with Governor Cummins and other poli
ticians of the state who favor the elec
tion of United States senators. It was at
first Intended to call the convention for
an earlier date than December 6, but be
cause of other events It was found neces
srry to postpone the mee ng till the
latter date. Friends of the movement are
waiting anxiously to see whether or not
the convention will be a success.
The resolution offered by Senator
Lewis and calling for the convention
authorities the Issuance of the call
by the governor for a convention of five
delegates from each state for the purpose
of furthering the movement to secure
a constitutional convention to propose nn
amendment providing for direct vote on
T'nlted States senators. During the past
summer Senator Lewis spent some time In
this city at the state library looking up
the record, and prepared a pamphlet giv
ing the record of the action of all the
states of the union upon the question.
It Is necessary for two-thirds of the
states of the union to memorialize con
gress to call a constitutional convention
before it becomes Imperative upon con
gress to Issue such a call. Senator Lewis
found only twenty-four states that had
passed the necessary resolution, though
It has been claimed that there are one
or two more. This pamphlet as jrepared
by Senator Lewis will be ready for dis
tribution to the delegntes when they as
semble here next Wednesday and will
probably be of some use to them In their
deliberations. How long the convention
will be In session no one knows as the
convention, when once organized, will be
a law unto Itself. Governor Cummins
will call the convention to order and wel
come the delegates and Inform them of
the reasons for calling the convention and
the convention will then organize accord
ing to Its own wlshea. Plans are not yet
perfected for the reception which Gov
ernor Cummins will extend to the dele
gates, but this will probably take place
on Wednesday evening at the governor's
offices In the state house,
Aa Senator Lewis .discovered the states
that have passed the resolution asking
congress to call the necessary conven
tion are as follows: Iowa, Oregon, Minne
sota, Pennsylvania, . South Dakota, Mon
tana, Idaho, Washington, North Carolina,
North Dakota. Florida. Utah. Kansas,
Ohio, Wyoming", Tennessee, Illinois, Ken
tucky, Indiana, New Hampshire, Nevada,
Michigan, Nebraska, Colorado.

Money In Big; Demand.
Money Is In big demand as shown by the
completed report on the bank statements
made by the state auditor's ofnee last
night. There has been a decrease of
$0,80,333.53 In the amount of credit held
In other banks and subject to sight drafts
and an Increase of JT,3o3,319.14 in the amount
of bills receivable, or. In other words,
loans. At the time of the last bank state
ment It was shown that there had been
an Increase of $5.Sl9,000 In the credits In
other banks n well ns an Increase In bills
receivable of over H.ono.non. The report
now Issued shows that the credits in other
banks have been cut down more than the
Increase of tho last statement In order to
provide for the big demand for loans. The
total of both state and nuvlngs banks
shows that there waa on November 12 bills
receivable to the amount of $171,800,764.29
and money due depositors to the amount
of $1SO,7M,2S1.90. The Increase In the amount
due depositors is but $194,232.73.
