State Convention Meets Without
Causing Party Rupture.
Action at Chicago Rebuked, but No
Resolution Passed that Will
Cause Further Split in
. Ranks of Workers.
(From a tSaff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, July 10.-(Special Tele
gram.) The republican state convention
today gotthrough without any bolt or
anybody getting mad and in the opinion
of nearly everyone the party is In fair
condition to make a winning fight in the
state.' Resolutions as reported offer a
mild rebuke to the national convention
and refuse to indorse either the ticket
or the platform of the Chicago conven
tion. Amendments offered by the minor
ity to indorse the platform and change
the clause regarding the national con
vention were laid on the table, 773 to 342,
but it was all In good anture.
Governor Carroll was treated rather
harshly by the convention, which did not
want' to hear him talk in defense of the
national convention, and when be men
tioned the names of Taft and Roosevelt
the latter was the signal for the only
demonstration of the day, when the con
vention went wild for seven minutes.
In many respects the resolutions were
very mild as compared with the desires
of most of the delegates, and the general
opinion Is that the convention got oft
welf with no more trouble than it had.
The platform especltlly refers to the
trust and tariff Issues and several state
matters and in this respect Is satis
factory. The friends of Taft fought
hard to secure a definite Indorsement,
but the convention was overwhelmingly
against him. ..
Judges Byron Preston of Oskaloosa
and Frank R. Gaynor of LeDars were
nominated for judges. - The latter was
named on the second ballot and the
former on the third. They succeed Sher
win and McClaln. ' This was a purely
personal contest with no political sig
nificance. The Roosevelt men met in the evening
and at a meeting attended by about
100 persons selected a provisional state
committee to arrange for a state meet
ing to select candidates for presidential
elector county conventions will be
held July 20 and a state convention
July 24 at Des Moines.
DES MOINES, Ja., July lO.-Senator
A. B. Cummins, in a set of resolutions
presented to the republican state conven
tion resolutions committee, today sug
gested that a. commission be named to
investigate closely the manner in which
President William H. Taft was nomi
nated by; the Chicago convention.
The resolution says if Taft was fraud
lently nominated republicans would be
excusable in bolting the Chicago ticket,
but if not, "Iowa republicans should sup
port the ticket enthusiastically."
.When he convention reconvened after a'
recess whieh was" taken 'until 2 o'clock?
the disposition of the problem in refer
ence to President Taft and his adminis
tration remained to be settled.
Progressives in Control. '
The morning session was sufficiently
progressive to show the sentiment of the
delegates. Temporary Chairman Dan
Turner of Corning seemed to strike the
keynote of the situation from the pro
gressive standpoint when he said , during
the course of his speech: "Let not your
mental vision be crippled by that Chicago
convention." ""The phrase was greeted
with' prolonged cheers. '
Theodore Roosevelt sent word to Iowa
republicans today that so far as he knew
there never was any chance' of Senator
Albert Cummins getting the nomination
at Chicago. The telegram was in response

Patrons Who Violate
Water Board's Order
Will BeDealt With
Water Commissioner Howell was 'au
thorized by the water board yesterday
afternoon to cut oft without notice the
water supply of any patron found violat
ing the orders prohibiting sprinkling ex
cept between the hours of 6 and 8 o'clock
in the morning.
Before vote was taken on the resolu
tion conferring this authority Charles R.
Sherman suggested that the statutes be
examined to determine if the board had
such power.
Patrons of the plant who have been
caught by the vigilant water commis
sioners in the act of sprinkling sun
scorched lawns in violation of the rule
may secure water service after it has
been cut off only at the' discretion of the
water commissioner.
Residents have been petitioning the
water board to abandon its policy of pro
hibiting sprinkling in the evenings, but
without effect. Improvement clubs, it is
understood, are seriously considering the
advisability of contesting the enforcement
of the ruling.
Commissioner Howell can promise no
relief until the Florence water main is
completed, which will not be in time to
relieve the situation this eyar.
Wilson Makes First
Public Talk Since
His Nomination
ATLANTIC CITY, N.' J., July 10What
Atlantic City lacks and needs most is
moral pride, in the opinion of Governor
Woodrow Wilson, who addressed a
throng of 5,000 persons at the laying of
the cornerstone of the Younif Men
Christian Association building here today.
It was the democratic nominees first ap
pearance on the platform since the Balti
more convention and the crowl ohoer-jd
him enthusiastically. .
The governor was Introduce 1 by John
Wanamiker, former, postmaster gensral,
who referred to him as a "Playman and a
learned j man."
The introduction, especially the "Play
man" part of it, the governor said, re
minded him of his favorite limerick,
which he recited thus: ...
For beauty I am not a star;
There are others more handsome by far;
But my face, I don't mind it.
For I am behind It;
There are others in front that I Jar.

WASHINGTON, July 10,-President Taft
conferred today with Chairman HUles,
Representative McKinley, Representative
Burke of South Dakota, vice chairman
of the republican committee, and Repre
sentative Moore of Pennsylvania, secre
tary, over the question of whether an
elector chosen on the republican ticket
could vote in the electoral college for
Colonel Roosevelt, running .on a third
party ticket
In South Dakota the state convention
already had named Roosevelt men on the
republican ticket. Similar action Is ex
pected in other states. The president and
Mr. Hilles are expected to concentrate
their attention on this question.
"The cardinal plank In the 'bull moose'
platform," said Representative Burke, "la
'thou shalt not steal,' but the first thing
that party did in my state was to steal
the republican electoral vote. ' The state
committee chose for electors men who
have declared for Roosevelt, but they
will go on the republican ticket If they
are elected under the republican banner
they expect to vote for a man who has
deserted the old party and is making
one of his own. In South Dakota we cau
petition and put a set of Taft electors in
the field, but iu many states this is im
possible." '
Representative, Anthony of Kansas told
the president after the conference that
Senator Curtis and other Taft leaders In
Kansas expected to fight to prevent
Roosevelt men being chosen as electors
on a Taft ticket in the state primaries
August & ' ' '
The Taft men in Kansas have Taft
electors in the field, but In case Roose
velt, men are. chosen they know of no
remedy to keep them off the republican
ticket which goes before the voters la
November. '.'''.'

Washington j. iuiy i,-jt .. was the
sentiment today of most of. the members
of the subcommittee of nine of the re
publican national, committee, who will
elect in New York on July 19 a national
treasurer and appoint an executive' and
advisory committee, that the advisory
Committee should be composed chiefly of
men not on the national committee.
' There was a pronounced sentiment In
favor of having the ."progressive" ele
ment of the party represented. It seemed
to be settled, however, that . National
Committeeman William Barnes, jr.,. of
New York would be a : member. Senator
W. Murray Crane, .former Representative
James A. Tawney of Minnesota, Senator
Norris Brown of Nebraska, Otto Stlfel
of Missouri and Representative McKin
ley were all talked of for places.
For the executive committee, John T,
Adams of Iowa, Charles B. Warren
Michigan, Thomas K. Neldrlnghaus
Missouri and Ralph E. Williams of Ore
gon were being considered, but other
names probably will be added to the list
of available.

Bandits Fail to Open
Safe on Katy Limited
After 2 Hours' Work
PARSONS, Kan., July 10. -Missouri
Kansas and Texas passewter train No
9, known as the Kntv T.imttoH n-Mv,
left here at 10 o'clock last night was
held up by six masked men near Cof-
feyvllle, Kan., early today according to
a report received at the local headquar
ters. .
The bandits held the train t ft hniira.
during which time the. passengers and
trainmen were corralled avid guarded in
the coaches by two of the robbers while
the other four made nine unsuccessful
attempts to blow open the safe in the
express. No effort was made, to rob
the passengers and no one was injured.
Apparently the robbers became alarmed
and left . finally of their own accord,
fearing they might be surprised by tho
approach of another train or the arrival
ot offteeis who might have been sent to
learn what was delaying the train.
No ariests 'have been made' and no
other details have been received here.

Mike Harrington Decides to Join in
, with Third Party.
After Demanding Woodrow Wilson's
f-' Nomination, He Hears the Call
" of Unothl'r Political Party"" o v
; ' and Goes to It. ' '. -';'
In a lengthy proclamation to the pubjlc,
M. F. Harrington,, long prominent as a
populist bellwether, the!) as a democratic
leader, explains why after championing
Woodrow Wilson In the primaries he Is
going to quit the democrats and follow
Roosevelt into a new third party. He in
sists that both the Chicago and Balti
more conventions were dominated by "the
special interests" - and that ' the election
of Wilson would produce a reactionary
administration. ' The Important parts of
the document are: - ' ' '
"In view of the fact that I preferred
Woodrow Wilson to any of the other
democratic candidates seeking the demo
cratic nomination ; for president, many
have asked me why I prefer to support
Roosevelt rather than Wllsn. 'I have
nothing to say of Governor Wilson ex
cept kind words. He Is an able, honest
man. But when the contest came up last
winter as to whether Harmon or Wilson
should have Nebraska, I did not hesitate
to take Wilson's Bide of It, believing him
to be the more progressive. At that time
it also seemed that the contest this year
would ba straight out between the re
publican and democratic parties and it
seemed morally certain that Taft would
be the republican nominee. It was a
question of selecting a democrat to beat
Taft and If the contest was to be be
tween Taft and a democrat, then,' in, my
Judgment, Wilson was, the proper man
to represent the democrats, and I have
not changed my opinion in that respect
Conditions Have Changed.
"But during the last few weeks a
totally different condition has arisen. The
republican convention at Chicago was
dominated by the special Interests, al
though the progressive republicans in
that convention clearly . represented a
majority of the republican voters of the
United States. And how. was it In the
democratic national convention? The test
vote came there, as It did in the repub
lican naUtjal convention, on temporary
chairman. Mr. Bryan realized that in all
human probability he would be defeated
if he made the race for temporary .chair
man; He realized that a majority of the
convention was reactionary. He , stated
to the convention that he was willing, to
be humiliated by defeat In order to give
a chance to the progressive democrats to
express, through him, their belief in the
principles for which he had been con
tending for sixteen years. In other words,
Bryan himself recognized that after six
teen years of trying to make the dem
ocratic party a progressive party, a ma
jority was still reactionary.

was to ascertain what persons or influ

Funk, which Is now declared to have
been manufactured and baseless of fact
The whereabouts of Henning is still
unknown to the state's attorney.'
One of the angles on which the prose

a rich man and a big politician and that
she was getting a lot of easy money by

close attention from the state's attorney.
Mr. Funk from the filing of the Henning
suit has claimed that he was being at

ATLANTIC CITY, N.. J.', ilV, ; 10,-A
Bensatlonal attack upon President Taft,
Colonel. Theodore Roosevelt and the re
publican and democratic parties In gen
eral marked the beginning her today of
the eleventh national prohibition conven
tion. Clinton N. Howard of Rochester,
N, Y., temporary chairman of the con
vention, made a speech , whloh bristled
with denunciation . of the "boss-ridden,
liquor-controlled old- ,partiee."( He de-
Glared nothing in the way of real reform
was to .be gained from either , of them
or from a third party ' dominated by
Colonel Hoosevelt. - ; , ' ' .
1 "No other president since the founda
tion of this government," declared Mr.
Howard, "has surrendered more ab
jectly to the liquor Interest of this na
tion than has illlam Howard Taft, His
record is loo recent, familiar and odorif
erous to require review in- this intelligent
presence." '
' Mr. Howard said It would be a crlni
Inal waste of time to argue that .the
liquor traffic could be stamped out
through the republican party "by its
silent platform, its present and unworthy
leadership, Its long consistent liquor rec
ord and its present monopoly-matured
candidate, which Theodore .Roosevelt de
clares 'represents, nothing but successful
political fraud perpetrated in the inter
est of , politics . and financial privilege,'
and who more than any of his predeces
sors has become the wet nurse for the

; "And what better results can be ex
pected from the democratic party? Not
only as little, but less than nothing at all.

persone.d the republican party at Chi

' it may be said In truth that the splen
did Woodrow Wilson was not Mr. Mur
phy's choice, but the campaign banner,
decorated with his picture, was , flung
to the breezes In front of Tammany hall
one-half hour after , his nomination on
the order of Charles Murphy, by long
distance telephone, and the ' candidate
has since sent his regrets that a prior
engagement prevented his presence at
the Tammany Fourth of July." ' . , ' ,
The temporary chairman said that while
Governor Wilson was known as a "good
man," the prohibitionists are "not here
to elect a -good man, but to kill the
liquor .traffic." McKinley and Harrison
were "good men" in the White House,
he added, "but they, went out of office
with the country more saturated with
rum than when they went In.". ..

After severely criticising the democratic
house of representatives for its; failure
to enact legislation prohibiting the ship

his guns upon Colonel Roosevelt.
"How about the promised progressive
Roosevelt party?" he asked. ;,.
