In a twinkling three ol the handsomest
churches in Begin were laid in ruins.
They were the' Methodist, Baptist and
Knox churches, and the first of the city's

Methodist church fell with a crash that
sounded above the howling of the storm
and the roar of the cloudburst that ac
companied the terrific wind.

Works Wants to
Find Out How
Money Was Spent
WASHINGTON, July l.-Senator Works
of California progressive republican, pro
senting in the senate today a resolution
to Investigate recent campaign contribu
tarns and expenditures, declared that
President Taft's renomlnation had been
procured unjustly and" illegally.
California needed no new party, he said,
and the republican party might better go
down to defeat for the sins of its leaders
and come up four years hence than to
form- a new party.
Senator Works said his resolution was
based on charges publicly made by Pres
dent Taft and former Phesident Roose
velt. The discussion declares It is com
mon knowledge that public officials from
the president, cabinet officers and sen
ators down, have engaged in the pre
convention campaign. It directs invest!
gation of the financial transactions of
democratic and republican candidates for
the presidential nomination, calls for
names of officials engaged in the cam
paign and their salaries, the percentage
of voters in the primaries and payments
to newspapers and newspaper writers and
the amount of expenses of delegates paid
by others. '
The resolution stirred the senate, but
was . not acted upon. Senator Works
charged that men sent to Washington to
discharge public duties had been , giving
their lme;to carrying on political cam
paigns. . "-
"Doesn't that apply to certain members
of this body?" asked Senator Nelson of
"I think It does," replied Senator Works.
Senator Works asserted that a new
party in California would mean turning
the "purified republican party" there back
to special interests.

BALTIMORE, July l.-John B. Stanch
field of New York, in explaining his
vote during the twenty-seventh ballot
today, spoke in full as follows:
"I come here from a state the electoral
vote of which is Indispensably vital to
democratic success. If memory serves
me well only upon two occasions In the
history of our country has a democratic
president been elected without the elec
toral vote of tho state of New York. We
represent a population approximating 10,
000,000 people. We cast in ths nelgubor-
hood of 1,750,000 votes. We represent forty-
rive votes in . the electoral college to
come, and I am speaking here now in
explanation of my vote in behalf of the
empire state, representing generally, as
It does, one-tenth of the population of
the United States.
Now a word as to the history of the
democratic party in the state of New
York. For the first time since the ad
ministration of Governor Flower we have
a democratic government"
Claims Right to Be Heard.
Mr. Stanchfield was interrupted by E
O. Wood of Michigan, who requested that
he explain his vote and allow the dolf
gates to proceed with their work. Con
tinuing, Mr. Stanchfield said: '
"I would say that New York has a
right to be heard upon the floor of this
convention. The integrity, the manhood.
the personal and political honor of every
delegate of the ninety from New York
has been impugned and .insulted upon tnj
floor of this convention (applause), and
I have a right to be heard in Its defense.
And I, desire to say at the outset, in
order that I may receive a fair hearing
at the hands of this convention, and par
ticularly I desire to say to the following
of Colonel Bryan that I am one of those
who,' back in the dark years of 1896, fol
lowed the flag of Colonel Bryan and
spoke In every city and village and ham
let in favor of his election. (Applause).

votes by upwards of 100,000 than he polled

entitled to a hearing upon the floor of
Makeup of Delegation.
"Let us look , for, a moment at the

GREETING OF THE TWO DISTINGUISHED DEMOCRATS AT THE , STATION AT LINCOLN WHEN THE
TAMMANY CHIEFTAIN WAS RETURNING FROM THE DENVER CONVENTION."' - - . "
McCormick is Not
Quite Certain as
to Where He Stands
OYSTER BAY, N. Y., July l.-Robert
R. McCormick of Chicago, leader of ths
Illinois delegation for Colonel Roosevelt
at the republican convention, but who
was one of the first to say that he would
not follow the former president In tho
formation of a new party, came to Oys
ter Bay today with the statement that
Governor Deneen of Illinois could not
carry his state on the Tatt ticket and
that he (McCormick) had come here to
open negotiations with the colonel.
McCormick intimated that he had come
as an emissary from members of the re
"The progressive movement has gath
ered more strength than I had thought
at first," said Mr. McCormick, "and I
have come to the conclusion that Taft
cannot carry Illinois."
: "Are you going back to Roosevelt?"
' "I don't know," he replied-u ."I want
to talk U over with Colonel Roosevelt,"-..
"What will Governor Deneen do?"
'IT don't know." He Wants 10 Be elacttd
governor, and recent developments have
been such that he does not know whers
to stand." " ' ' . v
Alexander H. Revell of Chicago wa
expected with Mr. McCormick, but was
"I shall only listen to what Mr. Mc
Corrhlck has to say," said Colonel Roose
velt, "and express the hope that some
way will be found to unite, so that the
Roosevelt forces In Illinois will not be
divided..! wish the support of all those
who believe in the conmtnandment, 'Thou
shalt' not steal,' and who don't believe
In the . kind of domination which has
been exercised through the same type of
man and practically ths same methods,
in both the republican and democratic
The colonel was In high spirits over
the turn of affairs in Illinois as repre
sented by Mr. McCormick.
"It was a significant change," he said,
"and you will see several more cases of
the same thing in other states.
In continuing the fight, Mr McComlck
said, the Roosevelt leaders had told Gov
ernor Deneen that "if he did not fall In
line they would beat him."
It was Colonel Roosevelt's opinion that
a solution of the problem might be
reached by continuing tha present or
ganization with the present Roosevelt
strength behind the state ticket, instead
of naming an independent ticket as had
been proposed. He made it plain, how
ever, that he wished the leaders in Illi
nois to settle that for themselves. In
states like California, Kansas and West
Virginia, the colonel explained, "we have
the republican organization and It would
be useless to attempt to start all over
from the ground up. The situation is
similar to that which existed when the
republican ' party was f irmed In I860.
There were several cnr.t nt tickets rep
resenting the elem."ts which later were
united In the republican party."' .
NO BREAK IN THE DEADLOCK
Democrats in Convention Unable to
Get Together on Candidate.
DELEGATES HELD TO PLEDGES
Feeling Continues to Grow More Bit
ter as Balloting Con tin net and
All Hope of Harmony Has
BALTIMORE, July l.-When the demo
cratlc national convention began its sixth
day's session today there was no proa
pect of an immediate break of the dead
lock over the presidential nomination.
The twenty-seventh ballot was expected
to show whether Speaker Clark had won
back any of the delegates who had de
serted his ranks, by his statements deny
ing Mr. Bryan's implied accusations that
the vote of tha New York delegation
placed him under obligation to the
moneyed interests. Governor Wilson's
chances of winning the nomination were
believed to depend upon his ability to
continue the steady accretion , his vote,
has shown since the Nebraska leader an.
nounced hb ,upport. New York will
continue, to support the speaker durlr
the balloting today, according to Charles
I. Murphy. ;' v V - ; ,. ' 'f:sri--
"No' caucus' has been held ''. said Mr
Murphy, "and put f uture ctloni will de
pend upon developments. , I . am unable
to say what the delegates will decide if
the deadlock continues beyond Monday.
Mr, Bryan' attack upon the state of
New . York will have no effect. . Our
delegates will vote, as the majority di
rects without reference j to Mr. Bryan's
position or wishes." ( , , , . .
1 Deadlock Will Continue.
Many leaders thought there was no
Uklihood of a nomination during the day.
They were of the opinion that the con
troversy between ' Mr. Clark and Mr.
Bryan had Btlrred up such strife between
their respective followers that neither
aide would yield far enough to make any
Friends of Mr. Underwood went into
the convention more confident than ever
that the Alabama congressman will be
the ultimate choice; They admitted that
there would have to be a decided turn to
ward their man as a compromise candi
date, a large proportion of the support of
Clark and Wilson ' being necessary to
give him the necessary two-Jhtrds, though
he received all the scattering ?etes.
Not much time was expected to be oc
cupied In the selection of a vice president
and in the adoption of a platform, onco
the big fight was settled. The delegates
appeared to be weary of the long siege
and anxious to get back ti. tnolr homes.
Leaders thought It not unlikely that the
session which accomplished ' the end of
the deadlock would be the final one of
the convention. ' v
Speaker Clark's friends were of the
opinion that he would not come to Balti
more again. After conferences with blm
here and In Washington late Saturdiy
night and on Sunday, they know exactly
how he feels in regard to Mr. Bryan's ut
tack. Indications wre when . hs conven
tion reassembled, that one yf thm w)u!d
seek an opportunity to state ni position
before the body. ,, , , . ,
I Uyan Stir Hornet's Nest.
There was no denying tnat Mr Pryan
stirred up a hornets' nest and it was a
question how long it would take to draw
the stings. Clark's followers charge that
Mr1. Bryan was responsible far the con
vention withholding the nomlnjtion from I
tho speaker that had given him a Major
ity vote and they declare, thir unalter
able opposition to any or.t ii miniis.
And to their cause they have win, it is
sa'd, many enemies of Mr. Bryiu. which
under other circumstances would be foi
the man he champions. .
Delegates to the democratic national
convention held to a fragile hope this
morning that the first three .r tour bal
lots taken at the day's session would re
sult In separate splits among tho In
structed delegations to lead to a breaking
of the deadlock and the nomination of a
