FULTON OF OREGON CALLS CRITIC
BY VICTOR ROSEWATER.
Convention Hall, Chicago, June 4.
The. steadying of the Hughes posi
tion with the incoming delegations,
bringing first hand information, has
been the feature of an otherwise un
exciting Sunday. It is plain that the
first ballot showing for Hughes will
not disclose his whole nitiial strength,
because quite a few uninstructed
delegates, who are heart and soul for
Hughes, have complimentary obliga
tions they want to discharge and the
result is likely to indicate a wider
scattering than has been counted on.
Center to Rally On.
The real advantage scored today
comes tbough the arrival of the
out-and-out Hughes delegates giving
a tangible rallying point. This is
particularly true with respect to the
Whitman end of the New York dele
gation, headed by the governor him
self, who is ready to take a leading
part in the organization of the
Of course, the other candidate's
quarters have also had occasions, and
the activity has been quickened in
the several Roosevelt camps. I saw
William Loeb, jr., looking over the
rooms engaged for the Roosevelt
committee, and Gifford Pinchot and
Governor Hiram Johnson and other
distinguished bull moosers are here
making themselves busy.
I stopped a moment on the avenue
to talk with Oscar Straus and we
were joined by Dean Lewis of Penn
sylvania and Congressman Gardner
of Massachusetts, who, at mention of
the colonel's name, exclaimed:
"You'd better send for him right
away, the troops can't make any
headway with their general so far
Whether that is the. correct reason
or not, it seems to describe the situ
ation correctly viewed from that side
of the field.
By tomorrow night the delegates
will be almost to a man on vhe ground
and the curtain rung up for the pre
lude. . Fulton Expresses Views.
Former Senator Charles W. Fulton,
who is a member of the Oregon dele
gation to the convention said:
"Criticism of the part taken by
Frank Hitchcock in reference to the
movement for the nomination for Jus
tice Hughes, are entirely uncalled for
and unjusitified. Mr. Hitchcock like
many other patriotic ncn in other
parts of the country, has been and is
endeavoring to secure the nomination
of a typecal American citizen of posi
tive type, whose standing and record
commend him to the American people
as a whole for the presidency.
"This movement is not confined to
any particular section of the country,
through the efforts of Mr. Hitchcock
and others, has been crystalized and is
now of sufficient magnitude and
cohesion to justify the conclusion that
Justice Hughes will be nominated
very early in the balloting. There is
no jealously among the supporters of
Justice Hushes, and the majority of
ihrin recognize that an attempt is
bring made to pound Justice Hughes
over the shoulders of Mr, Hitchcock."

BRITISHERS TAKE HEART AGAIN
London, June 3. The latest reports
from the Rritish fleet, from neutral
vessels which witnessed parts of the
great naval battle in the North Sea
and from survivors, cause the llritish
public to believe the engagement was
not so near a defeat as at first re

Rritish losses, with all the craft en

The first reports of the heavy loss
of life unhappily have not been re

whole nation is oppressed with sad
ness, which is reflected in the faces of
all the people of London. It is esti

losses in men are nearly as great.
There were some 6,000 men on the
ships which sank, and only a few hun

of modern naval warfare, far exceed

a complement of more than 4,000 men,
only seven junior officers and a few

the Wellington Inn, heard Goldberg's
cries and came to his rescue. Calling
another man to attend Goldberg,
Dworak ran to the street in pursuit
of the holdup men. He overtook
one and asked him if he had seen any
one running down the street from
the direction of Seventeenth street.
The ntan immediately replied that
he had and stated that the man weut

Dworak took hold of him and led him

publican National Convention
Taking; Definite form.
WILL FORM ' WOMEN'S PARTY
Chicago, June 4. A week of woman
suffrage activities designed to exert
pressure upon the republican national
convention for the adoption in the
platform of a plank favorable to uni
versal suffrage will begin here tomor
row with the opening itr the Black
stone theater of a convention of the
Congressional Union for Woman Suf
frage. It will be followed on Tuesday

the National American Woman Suf
frage 'association the culmination of
which will be a parade in which it is
estimated that 20,(K)() women will
march and which will carry to the
republican platform committee in ses
sion at the Coliseum a set of resolu
tions demanding votes for women.
The two suffrage organizations
have maintained distinct and separate
headquarters from which, their work
has been directed.
Adoption of the Susan B. Anthony
amendment of the federal constitution
is announced as the goal of the con
vention of the Congressional Union.
At the first session of the three days'
convention which begins tomorrow

of a woman's party designed to at
tain adoption of tins amendment. A
committee, it promised, will be ap
pointed to call upon the platform
committee of the republican conven
tion and make a demand for a pro
nouncement on the suffrage issue fa
vorable to the new party.

states will participate in the meeting
to form the women's party, the first
session of which will be held at 2
o'clock tomorrow afternoon. Miss

tant legislative chairman, will make
the keynote speech as temporary
chairman. The gist of this speech, it

ure to act favorably on the Susan H.
Anthony amendment. Miss Anna
Martin of Nevada, it is predicted, will
be permanent chairman.
'I ursday morning the committees

ARE THE LARGER
tites That Claims of Berlin to
Victory in North Sea Fight (
EVIDENCE STILL INCOMPLETE
A.imiralty Says Two Teuton Dread
naughts and Two Battle
MANY SMALLER CRAFT SUNK
London, June 4. A statement is
sued tonight by the British admiralty,
confirming previous accounts of the
battle between the British and Ger
man fleets, reiterates that the Ger
man accounts of the German losses
are false, and that although the evi
dence is still incomplete, enough is
known to justify stating that the Ger
man losses were greater than the
British, "not merely relatively to the
strength of the two fleets, but abso
lutely." There is the strongest ground for
believing the statement says that the
German loises include two battle
ships, two dreadnaught battle cruisers
of the most powerful type and two of
the latest light cruisers, in addition to
smaller crafe, including a submarine.
London, June 3. There is no great
disparity in losses as it first appeared
in the British and German reports, ac
cording to British admiralty officers,
who claim that latest admiralty re
ports show that two German battle
cruisers went down, while London
announces the receipt of a wireless
dispatch, from Berlin carrying an ad
mission from the German admiralty
that another German battleship, in ad
dition to the l'ommern, was sunk.
. Berlin has issued no further state
ment oPGerman losses, which initi
ally were given as one battleship,
two light cruisers and several de
stroyers. Estimate of Losses.
Revised British reports give the
losses as follows:
British: Three battle cruisers
(Queen Mary, Indefatigable and In
vincible); three armored cruisers (De
fence, Black Prince and Warrior);
about a doaen destroyers and one
Germany: Two battleships (West
falen and l'ommern); two battl
cruisers . unnamed; . four light
cruisers (including the Wiesbaden,
Elbing and Frauenlob); six destroyers
and a submarine.
The British i admiralty in addition
has admitted that the battleship Marl
borough was struck by a torpedo, but
declared she was towed safely into
port. It denies the German claim that
the dreadnaught Warspite was sunk,
although conceding that she was dam
aged by gunfire.
The Germans are greatly elated at
the outcome of the engagement in
which their main fleet under Admiral
Scheer met the British, whose main
fleet, they assert, also was engaged.
That the Germans held the field after
the battle is shown, they declare, by
the fact that the Germans picked up
survivors of British warships that
London officially denies that ths
grand fleet was in the action. The
battle cruiser squadron which is re
ported to have rushed between the
Germans and their base, seems to have
borne the brunt of the fight. Eleven
British battleships eventually went
into the battle, it is admitted, but of
these several are declared to have
been only partly engaged.
The British losses in officers vere
extremely heavy, the list including
Rear Admiral Hood, who went down
with his flagship the Invincible; tap-
tain Sowerby of the Indefatigable;
Captain lay of the Invincible, and
Captain 1'rowse of the Queen Mary.
TUr tnl.il Rritish losses are ritimateri
Skt about 5,000.
