Attorney General Says Non- Partisan Election of Dele- gates Is Proper. COLUMBUS, Jnly Gen- eral Hogan quickly dissipated the doubt, as to the constitutionality of the law providing for the non-par- jtisiin election of delegates to the con- stitutional convention by digging up an opinion he had given Senator Wil- I liam H. Gnren, author of the law, last 'winter, before its enactment, uphold- ing its constitutionality. Secretary of State Graves, reading the state constitution, saw the profe- ion that "the convention shall con- sist of as many members as the house manner." Not knowing of the attor- jjey_generdJ's opinion, he at once rais- p-a the question as to whether electing members of the constitutional conven- tion by non-partisan ballot was in the 'same manner" as electing them by partisan ballots, as members of the t house are elected. He said he believed it was not. In his opinion Mr. Hogan covers this question explicitly, saying the constitution does not provide that tins members of the house shall ba elected on partisan ballots, but simply pro- vides they shall be elected by the peo- ple by counties. TWO HUNDRED IMMIGRANTS BAY IN PENNED UP OlllSLAND IN NEW YORK FIGHT TO KEEP CHOLERA OUT OF THE UNITED STATES TIFF ILL STAR-JOURNAL BUREAU Munsey Building. WASHINGTON, July in- surgent senators, who have fought many a good fight for the people, write the tariff revision down- ward legislation which it is conceded is to pass the senate after the Can- adian reciprocity bill is disposed of. For all practical purposes Canadian reciprocity is a closed legislative in- cident. It will pass, unamended. The live topic, upon which the attention of congress and the country is about to be focused, is the tariff legislation that is to follow reciprocity to the White Hpuse. For days there has been a turmoil as to the tariff legislation that should be passed and the parlimentary meth- bd of its consideration. Gradually, a blan has been worked out and the' fekles are now cleared. The insurgent Senators, the progressive democratic lenators and tha democratic leaders of the house have been brought into the fcooferonces. i i The plan tentatively agreed to and j which, from all indications, will meet i with final acceptance and approv- jal, will give to the senate insurgents the credit of originating and propos- ing the tariff legislation which is to pass the senate and be put up to the president. The insurgents have made known positively that they will not accept the democratic tariff revision bilis which have passed the houe. This ihas brought the democratic senators face to face with the necessity of vot- ing for the revision measures proposed by the insurgents or of taking upon themselves the responsibility of pre- venting any reduction in the onerous schedules of the Payne-Aldrich law. After thinking it over they have con- cluded that would be too heavy a re- sponsibility to carry with comfort.

Ryan, a Cincinnati theatrical man. She is popularly called n hydroplane and had showed a speed of from 3S to 39 miles an hour. Because of her great speed it seemed likely that no race could be arranged for her to- day and so it had been planned that she should try for the American speed record over a two-mile measured course. Ryan is a speed crank. The ance is his sixth boat and he is al- i ready planning Ms seventh, to be call- 'ed Reliance IV., to be 36 feet long and equipped with three engines. In this boat, of the hydroplane type, he expects to attain a speed of 50 miles an hour, a world's rec- ord. Ryan sails his own boat accompa- nied only by a mechanician, J. W. Smith.

She is 28 feet over all, with five feet moulded beam and equipped with a 75-80 six-cylinder Van Blerck engine, inch bore by six stroke. She won her first race at Detroit July 4 at a speed close to 35 miles an how. She is at her best in perfectly smooth water.
