"I have a considerable amount of cor
respondence which has been nesiected for
three or four days," said he, "and I am
going to get it out of the way today. Here
I can attend to It quietly nnd without In

to do anything with It this afternoon. "
"This has been," snld the secretary, "one
of the most enjvable commencements 1
ever attended. Every moment har hnd Its
delights. It was too bad that we did not
make 14 more Interesting for Harvard In
the boat race: but we defeated them at
base ball, anyway."'

pVrsonal and political friends as to plans
for the approaching campaign and as to
the clostns-up of hie official business In
the War department." After hi confer
ence with the president at Oyster Bay,
he will proceed to Washington.

CHEYENNE, Wyo.. June 2fi. (Special.)
Francis E. Warren, United Statea senator

DEATH CAUSES QUEER MIXIT
Law Doe Not Seem to Provide a Way
to Fill Vacant Office.
PIERRE, g. T., June 26.-(Sieclal Tele
gram.) The death of Congressman W. H.
Parker, leaves the congressional situation
In a rather peculiar shape. The vacancy
cannot be filled by appointment, but must
be by special election. The election of a
candidate la the puzzling one. The state
nominates through primary election and
fixes specific dates for such nominations.
The convention Is empowered to fill vacan
cies in the ticket nominated but not audi
as a vacancy by death of an officer elected.
The probabilities at tho present are that
Governor Crawford will not call a special
election before the date of the . general
election In NJTember and nominations
will be by petition for the place to fill
vacancy. Just who will be the man Is a
matter for the future political history of
the state, to decide.

that the stalwart wing of the republican

great an Inroad upon the stalwart strong

For a time it looked aa though Marshall
might secure th 40 per cent of the 'party

"Hu'rah for Omaha. Hurrah! Hurrah
Hurrah!'' with rousing cheer on their
ilps, the delegates to the Twentieth scs
rlon of the National Livestock Exchnnss
filed from the convention hall tit 4:45 p.
m. Friday afternoon at the cloee ot the
twentieth annua laesslon.
Omaha get a new honor !n the secretary,
an office If possible, more Important ths'n
the presidency. Omaha did well and
deserved It. The vote for Mr. 8trykr was
partly a recognition of this.
Two days have been crainmod with dis
cussions and action of Interest to all com
mission men and livestock producers.
Federal control, a square deal to the pub
lic with publicity, firm enforcement of
the economic rules of the exchange, oppo
sition to so called leeches and misguided
Interferenoe, and conservative adherents
to the methods of sane competition, have
been advocated In many brilliant pcochen.
Superb entertainment from every point of
view has made thl convention historic.
In tho election of officers and the choice
of a place of meeting precedent was sev
eral times overturned. Denver, by a vote
of 4 Oto 33 Was chosen as the place of
the next convention. The other city In
competition was Milwaukee, championed
by G. B. Van .Norman. He made an elo
quent plea, and fought hard for the honor,
but J. A. Johnson's Invitation, and tho
charms of the' western city proved too
alluring to the convention.
Precedent la Broken.
Following this selection, the precedent
of allowing the president to go to the
exchange which became the entertainer
for the ensuing year was broken. No Den
ver man wa placed In nomination. T. S.
Grave of Indianapolis was nominated by
George V. Wells of Chicago. Mr. Vn
Norman, under the defeat for the plac ,
of entertainment, refused to be salved
ove; and made a speedy withdrawal.
Thereupon, Graves being the only nominee,
was unanimously elected by acclamation.
The chairman of each delegation named
Ita vice president as follows:
Omaha Jay Laverty.
Chicago K. H. Ingwersen.
Sioux City Frank Anderson.
St. Joseph A. F. Daily.
St. Ixnils E. E. pversireet.
Pt. Paul C. L Hans.
Pittshurg-C. V. I.auer.
Buffalo H D. WhaU-y
Milwaukee T. L. Wood.
Kansas City L. A. I.ennen.
Denver A. J. Campion.
These were simply ratified by the con
vention and have the powers of the execu
tive committee. Indianapolis, having th
president, had no vice president.
Stryker for Secretary.
In the election of secretaty A. F. Stryket
came out with brilliant colors over all oppo
sition and Omaha got another feather lr
Its cap. In this election the exchange ap
parently committed Itself to the policy ol
rotating the orflce of secretary. Hereto
fore there has been but one secretary, C
W. Baker of Chicago, who has held th
office for nineteen year. In nominating Mr.
Stryker Jay Laverty said that It had been
the sense of the meeting at Knnsas City
last year that the office should be given tc
the other exchanges after reasonable terma
It is not Intended to'change yearly In thli
respect, but to alio a new rule to be '
established by custom. "The service ot
Mr. Baker has been faultless In every re
spect," said Mr. i-averiy. nc nw u.o
more than, any other man to put the ex
change on Its feet during the time of Its
struggle for control In the varlou yards."
Following the nomination of A. V.
Stryker, G. B. Van Norman nominated C.
W. Baker of Chicago, Mr. Moody of St.
Loul nominated H. F. Parry, the local
secretary, and William Megeveny of St.
Paul 'named Secretary Frar.k E. Scott of
Bloux City. Mr. Baker declined the honor
of another election and withdrew from the
contest. The first vote on the three remain
ing candidates gave Stryker 80, Parry 2u
and Scott 17. In this ballot Chicago voted
eleven men, but gave Parry four of Ita
votes. On the second ballot the entire
eleven voted for A. F. Stryker ar.d the vote
stood: Stryker 34. Parry 16 and S-ott 17.
This being a majority. Mr. Parry moved
that the election be made unanimous. H
was seconded by Mr. Scott and It was done
amid good feeling.
A. F. Stryker Is the secretary of th local
exchange and is kr.own as one of the
brightest and hardest working raen around
the yards. To his efforts largely ls de
clared to be due the splendid success of th
entire entertainment. He has the reputa
tion of being fearless, frank and cnr.vlncinj,
and tireless In attention to detail.
Moore t htiHra Treasurer.
J. W. Mooie of Chicago, when ni one
had a favorite for the of:lce. of treastrrei',
was pounced upon by the convention and
made the victim of tin; r-r esirings agiliut
his protest and judgment. It was t.ie oai
chance the convention had to gel even wlih
Moore for talking on every subject of
dlscusfclon during tVee ntlre session. H
wss so overcome by the attack that be.foie
he 'could decline or escape teh convention
I had adjourned.
