Delegates to Republican Convention
Regard Him Candidate on Whom
They Can Build Up Party
Bull Mooscrs Standing; Back to
Let Republicans Take
Chicago, June 5. (Special Telegram.)-
While, tlie air is full of ru
mors, claims, counter claims and pre
tended ultimatums, the confusion is
more on the surface than beneath it.
It is fair to say that nearly all the
delegates are now here, hut their main
activity has heen in attending delega
tion meetings and visiting from one
headquarters to another. What im
presses all of them, and I have talked
with many from all parts of the coun
try, is the outstanding fact that the
Hughes movement offers the common
ground for them to meet, and that
while under different circumstances
various "favorite sons" would make
splendid men for the White House,
they are subordinated in the popular
mind or unavailable to assure party
harmony. It is noticeable, too, that
the harmony talk is growing strong
er and more general as the convention
day approaches.
Third Ticket Talk Vanishes.
The disposition of the bull mooscrs
to hold hack and let the republicans
take the lead reflects this trend, and
the suggestion of another third party
ticket has practically vanished. The
national committee of the progres
sives constitutes really the whole or
ganization and has itself put. all its
authority in a steering committee
whose makeup is of the harmonizing
rather than the antagonizing type.
Incidentally let it be observed that
(lie bull moose national committee
has certified the temporary roll of
their convention, corresponding ex
actly' to the action of the republican
committee in making up the tempo
rary roll something that used to be
denounced as rank usurpation of the
'ights of the delegates themselves as
against any and all self-empowered
jommittees. Perhaps the absence of
contest and unseemly scramble for
(cats in the bull moose convention
iclps to explain the easy sailing on
a hat might be a troubled sea.
Ure May Vote for Ford.
When it conies to estimates on the
presidential balloting all the con
vention calculators place Hughes far
in the lead. More than that they all
figure accessions to the Hughes
column as soon as the favorite sons
pass the complimentary vote stage.
In every table Nebraska has been
put down on the first ballot as sixteen
for Cummins, but speaking this
morning to Mr. Ure, one of the two
delegates representing our Omaha
:listric$ in which Ford led the popu
ar vote, I discovered that he is seri
ously inclined to believe it his duty
o vote for Ford and if that idea holds
vvith his colleague too, Nebraska will
Answer first roll call as fourteen for
Cummins aud two for Ford. How
lung the vote would be so. recorded
will depend on developments. Both
Minnesota and Montana, which have
similar preferential primary instruc
tions for Cummins, come ahead of
Nebraska in the list, and should they
at any time break, it would become a
question wkclher Nebraska's obliga
tion would not also be fully dis
rharged and the delegates be tree to
vote their real choice.
Nebraska May Be Unit.

papers quotes Howard Bahlrtgc a

Ring Lai drier Makes First Dash
Into Chicago Political Arena
Chicago, June 5. (Special Tele
gram.) I usually write stuff on the
sporting page, but along last May or
April I received a. letter from a news
paper in CJuakcrtown, where there is
a Quaker girl, and this letter said they
would slip me so-and-so if 1 would
sover the republican and democratic
conventions. So I took the Jetter in to
the boss because the letter offered me
a flat offer of some money, and he
"What about it?" he says.
"Well," I says, "I would love to do
it on account of the money."
"Yes," he says, "but are you work
ing for a Quakertown newspaper or
are you working for us?"
"Nits!" Either way you flatter
me," I says.
"Well," he says, "if you report this
convention for anybody, we would
rather have you do it for us that pays
your salary for doing nothing. If you
finally make up your mind to work,
it is only just and fair that you woVk
for us." i
"All right," I says, on account of
Thought He'd Try It.
But lately 1 got .thinking about it
and thought may be this will be a
whole lot of work and something I
don't know nothing about and if I
can duck it and play golf every p. m.
and just keep up the wake of the news
column in the sporting page that's
easy as a pie to write so much the
better. So the day of the parade of
the people that would , a whole lot
rather walk around the loop than
fight, 1 went to the managing editor
and says:
"Say," I says, "this was a kind of a
joke about me reporting the conven
tion." "Yes," he says, "I thought so, too.
but the higher ups says you was to
do it, and that settled it."
"Yes," I says, "but I don't know
absolutely nothing concerning poli
tics." "Listen," fie says, "don't you often
write something about foot ball?"
"Yes," I admitted.
"Do you know something about it?"
he asked me.
"No," 1 admitted.
"Also." he continued, "ou write
atiout d.uuing and base hall and fight
ing and bahics and poker game and
auction bridge whist, and so on what
do you know about them?" he asked
'"Nothing." I admitted

over, meaning the, convention here
and the banquet at St. Louis.
So I found out by inquiries that
the convention didn't start until
Wednesday and I would find the news
Monday and Tuesday at the Congress
hotel that was named after congress,
lut not the congress that's been down
to Washington, U. C, recently be
cause you would not name a hotel
after that unless you was pretty sore
Jit the rooms and board. '
So I showed up at the Congress
yesterday afternoon and the first
thing that happened after 1 got in
the lobby was a whole lot of musi
cians and saxophone players came
in ahead of a parade and the parade
was all yelling something and I could
not make out what it was.
Boosters for Something.
But they all had Indiana banners
and what they yelled sounded some
thing like Wabash, but I didn't be
lieve they would be boasting about
a thing like that, so I went up closer
and listened and found out it was
Fairbanks that they were yelling.
They were just boosters for soap or
scales, one of the two. But I forgot
to say that before I went to the Con
gress hotel 1 got a shave and all
cleaned up and when I got there and
saw the delegates 1 realized where I
had make a msitakc and had become
a conspicuous figure.
I knocked several delegates down
and got across the lobby to the desk
and asked them where the news
paper men were located at, because 1
had not seen one soul that acted like
he knew me or wanted to.
"Where ate the newspaper men?"
I asked the clerk.
"Try room lfjOo," he said.
So I tried four or five times to get
in the nearest elevator and was told
I was too big and finally one of the
elevator men let rne get in and we
went up near the top and I says:
In the Wrong Hotel.
"Where is lnOo?" I asked hint.
"Not in this building," he answered.
"It's in the other building," he re
plied. "I went in all surrounding buildings
and when 1 aked for lolXi I got
laughed at, so I come bark to the con
gress aud went in the I'oinpey room
and asked them for a sandwich and
while 1 was masticating it I noticed
that they was hoarding up the foiiu

Sentiment for Nomination of the
Justice Grows with the Arrival
of Each State Dele
Men Back in Trenches, Who Do the
Voting1, Believe Hughei Man
Who Can Bring Harmony.
Chicago, 111., June 5. Hughes sen
timent :oday swept over the republic
ans assembled here for their national
convention and amazed the leaders by
its apparent strength and stoptaneity.
Without any authorized headquar
ters '.r recognized spokesmen dele
gated to speak in behalf of the jus
tice, the republicans considered the
growth of the Hughes movement into
a full-Hedged boom within the last
twenty-four hours a force to he reck
oned with when the convention as
sembles Wednesday.
Frank II. Hitchcock, who has been
leading the unorganized Hughes
movement, issued his lirst formal
claim today, contending that the fa
vorite sons combined would have S
Strength" of only 345 votes not
enough for a majority and predicted
that Justice Hughes will get more
votes on the first ballot than all the
other favorite sons combined, and
that his nomination on an early ballot
is inevitable.
Won't Get Two Hundred.
Roosevelt leaders still fighting for
the colonel's nomination, bud them
selves confronted with a situation
thev are convinced was over-estimat'
cd in theTolonel's favor and the re
publican leaders attached to the old
guard predict that the colonel's ulti
mate strength in the balloting will
be less than 200 Votes.
One potent element in the repub
lican nomination toward which all the
leaders were looking with some ap
prehension was settled by the deci
sion of the progressive national com
mittee not to nominate a presidential
candidate until Saturday and to ap
point a committee to confer with the
The apparent elimination of Colo

has encouraged boomers for some of
the other candidates. Many of them
profess to believe they will he the
beneficiaries of the waning Roose
velt strength, and that an effort now
will he made to concentrate cm a plan
to eliminate Hughes, Chief among
there is the candidacy of Senator
Weeks of Massachusetts. He is on
the ground and as fast as delegates
arrive all those who are willing are
taken to the Weeks headquarters.
During the day the Weeks supporters
increased their estimates from time
to time of the probable first ballot
strength of their candidate until they
were claiming more than 300 on the
first halKit.
Although abandonment of any plan
to get a pre-convention .statement
from Justice Hughes has been an
nounced, delegates nevertheless in
quire for some authoritative state
ment of his political views and his
stand on important issues.
Leaders interested in Hughes let it
be known today that Governor Whit
man in his nominating speech will
make a statement outlining Justice
Hughes' political views and his rcc-

Among those opposed to Justice

They Say German Fleet So Weak
ened It Cannot Attempt Another
Raid Into Baltic.
1 otidon, June .v-Jn view- of the
latest report of the admit alty on the
naval battle of last week, the press,
and public are devoting their atten
tion to computing the losses of the
two navies and the effect the engage
ment is likely to have on future naval 1
warfare. The British estimate of
eighteen German ships lo'.t, as com
pared with friurten British, is ac
cepted by the majority, and the result
is now claimed as a complete victory
for the British fleet.
So far as the German denial of the
British claim is concerned, it is
pointed out that the Germans did not
admit the loss of the cruiser Filling
until the arrival of some survivors
from it in Holland, and this is cited as
confirmation that the Germans con
ceal their losses until forced by cir
cumstances to reveal them. '1 his is
made possible, it is argued, by the
that the British losses occurred
.it daylight and are known to the
Germans, while the German losses
took place in tw ilight or after dark.
Should the British estimate of the
German losses prove correct, naval
writers say it will be many a long
day before the German ileet shows
itself again in the North Sea, and
even should the estimate prove ex
cessive the damage done to the Ger
man hatt'e cruisers will put an rnd
to raids on F.nglish coasts After the
Doggerbank battle the lierfflinger
and Moltke were five months in dock,
and it is believed that the German
ships of this class engaged in last
week's battle were even more
verely damaged.
The Derfflingcr and its sister ship,
the" Lutzow, are believed to be the
battle cruisers which the British have
included in the list of supposed Ger
man losses, while another battle
cruiser, the Seydlitz, is reported from
a, neutral source to have been seen on
Thursday morning badly damaged aud
being pursued by British warships.
Another advantage claimed from
the outcome of the battle is that it
relieves the pressure on the Russian
army wing in Courland to which the
i German fleet was giving valuable stip
iport. It is already reported from Co
! penhagcu that German cruisers have
been withdrawn from the Courland
coast, while German destroyers have
not been seen for a week in the
southern Baltic.
Sunken Dreadnoughts Identified.
British officers of the fleet which
participated in the Jutland battle and
have returned here identify two of
(he big German battle cruisers sunk
as the Hindenburg and the Lutzow.
The Lutzow, a battle cruiser of 26,
000 tons, was completed in 1915. It
was armed with 'eight twelve-inch,
twelve six-inch and twelve twenly-four-pounder
guns and equipped with
five torpedo tubes. Its armor belt
was about thirteen inches in thick
ness amidship. It was 689 feet long,
ninety-five feet beam and drew twenty-seven
and a half feet. It was of
the latest and most powerful battle
cruiser type.
The Hindenburg is not listed in the
latest naval records. It has been re
ported, however, that it was a battle
ship of the largest and most pow
erful dreadnought type, launched in
the fall of 1915.

of Nebraska.
The party arrived in Omaha at 7:30
a. tn. and were met by a committee
and taken in automobiles to the Fon

The thirty are the guests of sixteen
Nebraska publishers who, since they
could not take Nebraska hack to the
advertising men's offices, hit upon the
happy idea of bringing the advertis
ing men to Nebraska and showing
them the marvels of the state, its fer
tile farms, its prosperous people, its
rich hanks, its great manufacturing
plants, its annual farm production of
hundreds of millions of dollars, and
so on.
After spending the day here the
party, augmented by forty or fifty
leading business men and several ex
perts on Nebraska facts and figures,
will lcavj Omaha on a spendid special
train to tour Nebraska tor the rest of
the week,
The ad men spent a fine day here.
They started out from the Fontcnctle
loud in a fleet of automobiles and
took a run to the South Side, where
the stock yards and packing houses
were given the "once over." Everett

honors there and showed the t-astern-ers
