, . . . Am-

cratjc national convention and the
uaul' " '
election of a new treasurer ana secre-
tary, will constitute the chief work
of the democratic national commit
tee which meets here Tuesday morn
ing to make preparations for the
1916 presidential campaign.
Four cities, Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas
and San Francisco are In the race for
the convention. Dallas and St. Louis
delegations ars here, each fortified with
a fion.coo check ready to promise the na
tional committee every convenience.
Particular stress Is being laid by each
delegation on his hotel, railroad and wlra
facilities. They also have weather maps
and records for many years to prove
that climatic conditions will be ideal
with them In June, when the convention
will be held. June 19 is the opening data
Offer of St. Loots.
The St Louis delegation offers the usa
of Its convention hall which will seat
14,000. Dallas has no hall at this time
other than an auditorium at the .stats
fair grounds. It Is willing, however, to
add to this structure or' erect a new one.
A fund of f30,000 in addition to the flOO.OOO
has been raised for extra expenses.
William F. McCombs, chairman of ths
committee who arrived here tonight from
New York, said Irs did not know what
the Chicago and San Francisco dele
gations would offer. Each Is reported to
be bringing a fund of $100,000.
With about half the delegates present
today, James E, Smith, chairman of the
St. Louis delegation, claimed seventeen
pledges for his city. Other St. Louis men
expressed confidence that they would
have a majority on the first ballot These
assertions did not disturb the optimism
of the Dallas contingent which reached
Washington during the day on a special
train, led by Governor Ferguson and
Mayor Llndsley of Dallas. There are
about seventy-flvo In ths party, includ
ing the mayors of seven Texas cities.
Only democrats are on the St. Louis dele
gation, but ths Dallas crowd boasts that
It represents all political parties.
White House Neutral. .
Announcement that the White Uouas
would remain strictly neutral In the fight
caused disappointment among the Texans,
who had hoped for the president's sup
port Rollo Wells of Missouri, treasurer of ths
committee, has informed friends that
after presenting his report at the meeting
Tuesday, he will resign because he has
become a governor of ths Federal Reserve
bank in St Louis and does not feel that
he should hold a political position. .Who
his successor will be was problematical
Rumors that Chairman McCombs might
be chosen or Homer Cummins, national
committeeman from Connecticut or Fred
B. Bllnch, national committeeman from
Ths committee, it wss said tonight,
will take no formal action in making
its preference for Its candidate In 1914,
although all of the members expect that
President Wilson will be nominated.
The committee will have to fill eight
vacancies. Including two over which thora
are contests. In Kentucky, General W.
D. Haldeman is contesting the seat of
the late John C. C. Mayo, with Urey
Woodson, who was elected by the state
Coatesilna; the Beat.
In Oregon W. II. Easterly Is contesting
the seat of Will R. King. Ths committee
will also name ths selections oi Vincent
Miles of Arkansas, John T. Bamett of
Colorado, W. W. Marsh of Iowa, Charles
F. Johnson of Maine, Cordell Hull of
Tennessee and Z. R. Cheney of Alaska.
Chairman Mccomba has promised a
j legation of surrrsglsts that be will
make an effort to have the committee
give them a hearing. Most of ths mem
bers ars understood to be favorable to
a healing, although it is regarded as a
foregone conclusion that ths committee
will take no stand on ths issue.

CAMBRIDGE. Mass., Dec. 1 Dis
covery of a new comet by Astronomer
Taylor, stationed at the Capo of Good
Hope was announced In a cablegram
! f rem Copenhsgen, received at ths Har
vard observatory today. The comet was
sighted first near Delta Orion, which Is

to the sensational advances scored here
Saturday and because It was announced
Italy had suspended Import duties until
June SO. 1916.
Assertions that commandeered wheat
loaned to Canadian shippers would have
to be returned by December 10 to the
dominion government gave additional Im
petus to the upward movement of prices
A further handicap to ths bears was
the action of a leading houae In pointing
out that under clrcuatajicea said to be

showed between December 7, 1914, and
April 30, 1916, an advance of mors than

CAT'J LE Reoetpta were liberal this
morning, being about on a - par with
Monday of Iojil week. At the Mini time
JChlcago had an' overhelming run. early
I reports Indicating 4,uoO head at that
point, with -prices prospectively IOjiJOJ
lower. Kansas City also sent in reports
of heavy runs, their early estimate be
ing 30,000 head of cattle. With such un
favorable advices from oiner seiuug
points ths market here was very bsck
ward about opening. Buyers were nat
urally Incline to await reports from
other selling points before doing any
business of consequence. Whatever they
did make early bids they were way
lower, and a large part of ths forenoon
had past before enough business had
been transacted to really call It a market.
The trade continued a a rag mrougnuut
the day. Killing cattle were pretty gen
erally ltxfj'juo lower, although the supply
of really desirable beef was not very
large, canner oowa showed leas decline
than better grades, being close to steady
In some cases. Good to choice feeders
wsrs also In moderate supply, being as
mucn as liXu-15o lower, while the yards
were full of common native stock cattle
that were extremely hard to move wun
prices 1626o lower.

Estimated receipts of 80,000 at Chicago
and pretty decent runs everywhere else,
precipitated a sharp decline all around
the loop this morning. Shipper buyers
did not get in very heavily, and what
hogs they bought luoked around Soft 260
lower than last week's close. Tops
reached 96.40. a flat quarter below ths
high pries at last week's close.
Packers mads their first offers on a
flat quarter lower basis. Little sold on
first rounds, and by ths time the move
ment started bids had been modified
somewhat In most cases, so that when ths
bulk of ths offerings began moving
scale ward prices were In many Instanoes
not over 20c lower, although in spots they
were a quarter off. Quality was not ao
good as at last week's close. In that light
hogs made up the bigger share of tbo
Movement was, as general thing,
fairly active, considering the slse of the
decline. Local values are plenty high
as compared with ths prices paid at
other points, and sellers, realising that
the local decline was In lino with ths

degree of freedom onos a trading basis

with quits a sprinkling of lights down to

There was a larger percentage of pigs
In the day's run than on any one day in
a long time, and prices broke sharply,
looking anywhere from a quarter to too
lower on ths few sales made during the
earlier part of ths forenoon. Native piss

slightly larger than two weeks sgo and
almost double the number ihai showed
