The New York .delegation, has an ele

favorable to Wilson. But the predominat
ing element of about sixty votes is for
anyone who has reasonable assurance of
carrying New York.
Thus far, the New York delegation has
reached this stage: At the caucuses
yesterday the delegates agreed on a com
plimentary vote for Harmon. They may
follow this with, a complimentary-' vote
for Gayndr and they probably will con
tinue these complimentary votes until
they can see more definitely their way

amid the storms of popular demonstra

pent up energy of the shouters had found
expression, and from now on the conven

the prospect of a succession, of ballots
until a decision was reached.
It was not expected that the platform
would be reached until late this evening,
knd possibly not until tomorrow, although
the draft will be ready for presentation
Well before that time.
There are a number of conflicting In
fluences operating on the convention. One
Is the desire to nominate a candidate

CONCORD. N.' H., June 2S.-The su
preme court 'today denied a rehearing in
the case involving the legality of the re
siduary bequest of Mrs. Mary Baker G.
Eddy to the First Church of Christ, Sci
entist of Boston.
The suit was originally brought in the
superior court by Mrs. Eddy's son, George
W. Glover of Lead, S. D., seeking to have
the residuary bequest declared void and
the residue of the Eddy estate, valued
at about $2,000,000. divided between Glover
and Mrs. Eddy's adopted son, Dr. Ebe-
nezer J. Foster Eddy of Waterbury, Vt
This was referred to the supreme court
for determination of the legal points in
volved. The supreme court recently ruled that
the residuary bequest was legal and did
not conflict with statutes quoted by the
plaintiffs attorneys limiting the size of
bequests to churches. Counsel for Glover
then asked for a rehearing.

led all of the other candidates on , the
first ballot He received' 440 votes to

This, however, left the speaker 285 votes
short of the necessary two-thirds. Gov

New York's solid block of SO votes, was
third, with 148. Representative Oscar W.
Underwood of Alabama received 117

Some of his friends had expected that
he would receive more scattering votes,
but the fact that he did not show any

not discourage them. They still felt that

the Watch Cases
CHICAGO, June 28. Investigation of
the Keystone Watch Case company's
dealings with catalogue houses was taken
up in tne federal Investigation of the
concern's alleged violation of the Sher
man anti-trust law today. A. C. Becken,
formerly a Chicago catalogue hpuse man,
testified the Keystone company had
warned him In 1904 that if he desired to
handle its goods at all he must , exclude
all other brands. From that time until
1911 ha sold nothing but Keystone goods.
Then he rebelled, he said, and prepared
a new catalogue, advertising several dif
ferent makes of watch cases..
"When the company learned this I
was told I could no longer handle Its
products," he said.
Julius Schnerring told of an alleged
purchase by T. M. Jurbrugg, formerly
president of the Keystone company, of
the Young stock of Illinois and Duber
Hampden watch movements for 58,000.

BALTIMORE, Juna 28. Gossip today as
