Governor of California to Hake Baee
with Eoosevelt '
UNDSEY DECLINES THE CHAIE
Celoael Has to Take Control Himself
t Get Committee to Throw Out
" All Contesting Xearo
Delegates. ,
""CHICAGO, Aug. .-Governor Hiram
W: Johnson of California seemed, agreed
jupbn tonight as the vice presidential
nominee of the national progressive party
to make the first fight of the new po
litical organization with Colonel Theo
dore Roosevelt. ; ' "
Early in the evening Judge Ben R.
Lindsey of Denver, a former democrat,
had been agreed .upon as permanent
Chairman of the . convention. " 'Colonel
Jloosevelt agreed to the recommendation
xt Judge Lindsey and the plan had been
enthusiastically approved by the dele
gate. J
Late tonight, however, Judge Lindsey
called on. the colonel and had . a long
talk with him. ' He said he had been
suffering from asthma and did not feel
physically , capable . ot taking up the
work. Under the circumstances Colonel
Roosevelt agreed to release him and
while It had not been finally decided, It
wa said to be likely that former Sena
tor Albert J. Beveridge of Indiana, the
temporary chairman, would be continued
a permanent presiding officer.
Colonel Roosevelt said before he left
Oyster Bay that he favored the selec
tion of a southern democrat as vice presi
dential candidate. The' field was can
' vassed " carefully ' by leaders of the new
.party and It Is understood that the
colonel's suggestion was abandoned only
when it became evident that It was im
possible to decide upon an available man.
'it was said tonight that sentiment
among the delegates in favor of Governor
Johnson was so strong that his choice
as Colonel Roosevelt's running mate was
virtually assured and , that the leaders
who ' predicted his nomination, were
merely voicing the opinion of the con
vention. .
The California delegation passed a reso
lution today saying the state could not
spare Governor Johnson, but it was said
tonight the governor's friends would not
Insist upon this attitude,
. In the event of Governor Johnson's
nomination It Is -planned to Have blni
take the stump ; In the . east, while
Colonel Roosevelt la campaigning through
the west. " The governor'! qualifications
as a campaigner were said to be a strong
factor in his favor.
When Colonel Roosevelt .reached Chi
cago this morning be put in a stormy
two hours before he succeeded In
straightening out the tangle over the
contesting negro delegates ' from th
south. After he had been welcomed
by a crowd ot several thousand persons
and had made a speech on th a street,
In front of his hotel, he went to his
headquarters and took the, helm.
t he Florida and Mississippi cases
which had not been ruled upon by the
provisional national committee were
placed before him In detail and It de
veloped that there was a sharp differ
"erice of opinion in tao Roosevelt camp.
A." number of his northern supports. a
told htm frankly that they disapproves
of the policy of barring all negro dele
gates from the south. ,-
" a was urged that such a position would
cost ths national progressive ticket the
support of a large number of negroes In
the northern states, in which their
strength was greatly needed. Others of
Colonel Roosevelt's supporters felt that
In fairness to the negroes they should
: have some representation from the
south. ... , - .
Colonel Roosevelt stood tils ground. In
answer to every objection he ' said he
wsuld cling unequivocally to t:ie po
sition he had taken and that, although
' it might cost him votes in the northern
, slates, he believed It was to the best
Interests of the party to proceed undr
j white leadership in the south. He , re
i iterated the statement made in his letter
jio juuan Harris of Atlanta that it
jwai to the white men in" the south
itha the negro must look and dselawii
hla position, was for the belt interests
1 of the negro-. It was said tonight that
all of his associates finally were' V$n

; Colonel Roosevelt insisted there should
.be no negro delegates from the south In
the convention and the national com
mittee acquiesced in his view. The ewes
jWere taken before the convention com

! generally believed that committee would
follow the action of the national com

the matter. ' .'.

Etiquette in Fork Handling :
Viewed from Many Points
kaITUIATa Mt
ciR.L.aa
This is from The Omaha Excelsior,
society magaslne: "The Bee cartoonist
represents the man in the small restau
rant eating a huge slice of watermelon at
S cents a slice, and beside him a gentle
man at the Omaha club gailng at a dimin
utive piece of watermelon for 25 cents.
The Joke will grow because many people
doubtless believe that the Omaha club is
rot liberal in its slices. This is not true,
but what we object to Is the anything but
Omaha-club-llke attitude in which the
gentlrman appears, holding his fork bolt
upright In a closed fist The cartoonist
who endeavors to depict a gentleman
should draw a gentleman."
The Bee cartoonist, as the Excelsior
calls him, did make a mistake. Everyone
who has dined at the Omana club knows
that members do not hold their forks as
the picture depicted bolt upright. The
"cartoonist" has explained that he meant
to have the man holding Ills fork upright,
but by some miscue of -the pen, he got
it bolt upright. J',-'.
As a matter of fact, members of the
Omaha club, are the best fork holders in
the city. Everyone of them holds his
fork correctly, as In Fig 7. .
The editor of the Excelsior, himself, Is
quite a fork holder.
, At . the Panama-Pacific exposition in
1915, it is said, there will be a fork hold
ing contest to which It is hoped by some
of the editors friends that he will be
sent as an entrant, representing Omaha.
Of course, .that's just rumor at the pres
ent time; but may be authenticated later.
IRON TARIFF BE -TO TAFT
First of Sermon Bills Expected to
Be Vetoed.

HQ INVESTIGATION BY BOAED
La Follette I,oes Some Progressive
Votes When He Forces Through
Compromise Measure Re
i doclng Wool Do ties.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 6.-The iron and
Heel tariff bill today received the sig
natures of Speaker Clark and Acting
President Bacon of the senate and went
to President Taft for his Inspection. This
la the . first of the tariff revision billli
paused by the democratic-progressive al
liance In the senate to reach the chief
executive and close friends of the pres
ident express the conviction that he will
veto it, because no investigation of the
industry has been made by the tariff
board, upon which to base a scientific
tariff revision. ,
An attempt by the conferees on the
excise tax bill to roach an agreement on
that measure was not successful. -
After a session of more than an hour
the conference committee adjourned until
tomorrow. '
It Is understood that democrats of the
house have not fallen in with the plans
of the senate alliance on this measure.
. ftenate Paw" Wool BUI.
8enator La Follette had but five pro
gressives behind him today when he
forced through the senate the compromise,
wool tariff, bill, representing the agree
ment with the house between the fate
of the La Follette and Jjnderwood bills.
The measure, which had passed the house
last week, passed the senata by a vote
of 35 to 28, and as soon as signed by
the proper officers will follow the steel
bill to the White House,
Senator Simmons, the democratic tariff
leader in the senate, made an Ineffectual
effort to secure a vote Friday on the
cotton bill passed by the house last week,
' Spurred on by the success of the depio-cratlc-progresstve
forces on the other
bills, the house, sent the cotton bill over
at the end of the week. .
Senator Penrose reported it out irom
the finance committee toaay wun an
unfavorable report- He did not oppose
Senator Simmons'' request for a ..vote on
the .measure Friday, but the plan failed
because , of the Remand of other mem
bers that, appropriation measures tinn
Panama canal bill be given the rignt-or-
wav. .. ." i .
An attempt by democratic leaaers n
the senate to end the deadlock over the
1158,006.000 pension appropriation bill, failed
todav when they lost their fight to abol
ish the seventeen district pension agencies
now scattered through the United States.
Both houses voted to stand, by their re
spective positions ar.d the bill went back
Into conference." ...
The house had tried to legislate these
agencies out of existence, but the senate
amended the bill to preserve them.
, Mr." McCumber of the senate canferees,
reported to the senate today that it
had been found Impossible to break the
deadlock with the house. He added a
bitter arraignment of house leaders who
had ' placed the blame npon the ' senate
for holding up the pension appropriations.
Democtatle forces led by Senators Over
man and Bryan took 'up the defense of
the house and declared the senate should
not try to tave the outlying pension agen
cies. Senator Overman quottd officials .
of the pension bureau to prove that tljey
were 'not needed to aid in distributing
the pension funds.; He declared the per
sistency of the senate republicans on this
point was holding up the pensions of vet
erans., vi' ; ' - .' "" V
The republicans rallied to the defense
of the pension agencies, by a vote of
& to 4, defeating a motion made' by
Senator Overman to recede from its posi
tion. The senate then voted to Insist
upon its attitude and sent the bill back
to conference, ,.. "

In the present day fork holding is be
coming quite an accomplishment Since
the comment was published in the Ex
celsior, The Bee has had its "cartoonist"
canvassing the city to learn the methods
used In various cafes, restaurants and
club rooms pertaining to fork manipula
tion. - . '
In some places, he reports, forks ar
used sparingly, while in others their use
seems to be greater than ever before.
The percentage of fork users now as
compared to last December is about as
73 is to 51, according to the "cartoonist'!"
statistics. He explains the Increase Is
due to the present time being about in
the middle of the pea seoson. when, as
every one knows, knives are wholly In
adequate for the 'purposes demanded.
In the Toung Men's Christian associa
tion cafe, the Investigator found, that
forks are quite properly held, but not
as properly by ' most as by some. He
discovered one man using the Instrument
in the most delicate manner. This "gen
tleman" held the fork firmly .between
the first two fingers and the thumb, ad
ding, grace to the position by a slight
quirk of the little finger. (See Fig. Z.)
In other places he found the fork used
poorly and well, depending largely upon
the proximity to the Excelsior office and
the Omaha club, In some places he was
almost shocked by the absolute indif
ference for the fork, but his searches,
invoked by the Excelsior comment, have
taught him how to use and draw a held
fork.

Turkish Parliament
Dissolved by Decree
Issued from Palace
CONSTANTINOPLE,.' Aug. .-An Im
perial decree was issued today dissolv
ing the Turkish parliament. The cham
ber passed a vote of want of confidence
In the cabinet. The president of the
chamber called at tho palace to report
the action of the chamber, but the sul
tan declined to receive, him. y
It is reported that the cabinet has or
dered the arrest of Talaat Bey, ex-minister
of the interior, DJavld Bey, ex-minister
of finance and other leading mem
bers of tho committee of union and pro
gress. Order prevails, but troops are held
at points of vantage, and detachments are
patrollng the Street .. - .
, The Imperial docree sets forth that the
duration of the deputies' mandate as de
termined by the senate is confined to
giving a decision regarding, the constitu
tional questions at issue. The deputies
having completed this . task, it becann
necessary to terminate the existence of
the chamber. .
"I consequently ordain," concludes the
sultan, "the closing of the chamber and
fresh' "eleaiotisnrr conformity " With the
constitution." ' .
The cabinet decided to proclaim a state
of selge in Constantinople for a period
of forty days. An imperial rescript was
road in the chamber today saying the
cabinet enloved the full confidence of
the sultan, who regretted the attitude
of the late deputies, jespecially the presl-
dentj who failed to inform the chamber
Of the decree ot dissolution. ,

upon application of the First National

after filing a bond for $50,061.(0.
The nursery has been in operation for
many years, and has grown from a small
beginning into one of'the. largest in the

Crescent, seven miles north, of "Council

fine farm. Several years ago the com

One of our good cus
tomers remarked that she
missed one of our import
ant sales through not read
ing her newspaper 'till
THE MORNING AFTER.
Not strange these summer
days that one should be
somewhat listless and in.
different even as to
NEWS ITEMS.
The Kilpatrick an
nouncemtnts are not only
NEWS ITEMS but items
of importance . to most
householders. In your own
interest, therefore, "Don't
wait 'till the day after tho
Fair" or you may be sorry.
