Although defeated by thejast senate it is believed the measure will be passed by the present body. The recent vote buying scandal fig- ured in the arguments against the bill Senator McCumber of North Da- kota replied to the arguments that the direct election of senators would prevent bribery in the legislatures by saying: "The late revelations con- cerning elections in a county m Ohio show that the public is not wholly ex- empt from those weaknesses we some- times unhappily find m our legisla- tures The vote will probably reached late today.

"That is the-cutest, most harmless little he I've heard for a long time You tell the great and in- iquitous press for me that it won't do any harm if it confines itself to just such other equally harmless things." doubt upon the main proposition The proposition before the senate in the Borah resolution is to amend the constitution so that the people in- stead of the legislators shall elect sen- ators and further that the times and manner of so electing senatois shall 'be prescribed for each state by the legislatures thereof The Bristow a- mendment gives congress control. While this epoch-making vote is at hand, the chances for the Canadian reciprocity bill are becoming brighter although opposing senators are plan- ning an endurance talk that may es- tablish new lecords. The bill will be reported Tuesday The democrats, a- side from Bailey, are almost unani- mously for the bill as are such sen- ators as Burton of Ohio, but the ultra- protectionists, like Gallmger. of New Hampshire, and the insurgents like Bourne, of Oregon, who see in it a Liquor Problem To Be The On; Big Matter, it Seems Certain, STAR-JOURNAL BUREAU. Dispatch Building COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 12 The constitutional convention which will meet in Columbus next January is beginning to attract attention and diffeient interests are beginning to get active in the behalf of candi- dates that wil1 be favorable to such legislation and changes in the great scheme lo wipe them out politically, are opposing the measure. The Root amendment to the reci- procity bill, the effect of which would be to nullify the free wood pulp fea- ture of the measure, is a dead letter according to a poll in congress just taken by the New York World The treaty as a whole, however will be ratified by the senate in the form i in it comes from the house, ae- cording to the poll Miss Graham and Miss Conrad Held for Attempted Mur- der of Stokes NEW iTOBK, June today on a charge of attempted mur- der, Lillian Graham and Ethel Con- rad, the two young women who shot Millionaire W. E. D Stokes, were held in bonds of each, which they expect to give late in the day. They will be called for examination Wednesday. The murder charge was preferred at the reqaest of Stokes, it lhaving been originally intended to chaige them merely with lelonious assault. Mrs John Singleton, a sister of Miss Graham who also was acquaint- ed with the millionaire hotel pro- prietor is racing across the Atlantic with documents believed to be letters written by Mr. Stokes to Lillian Gra- ham. It is intimated ihat this evi- dence will play an important part in the defense. Mrs. Alice Andrews, another sister, is crossing the contin- ent as fast as steam can bring her to be near the imprisoned girl. She is also expected to reveal some of the secret chapters in the life story of the younger sister who charges Mr. Stokes wrecked her happiness and then icast her aside. At Roosevelt hospital it was stated tonight that Mr. Stokes was rapidly recovering. document which foundation for all other state laws and regulations. Very little is known regarding this great convention which will be com- posed of delegates from every coun- ty in the state, the same as the house of representatives, and which will be in session for two months or more beginning early in Januarj, 1912. They will diav the same salary as the representatives, or per year, but will be limited m the amount they can spend during the duration of their term and while they are in session And when they have finished mak- ing the changes in the constitution the entire matter will be referred to the voters of the state to be ratified which if not done will make the work of the contention foi naught Thtr last-convention was Tield "m Cin- cinnati back in the '70s and all the work they did was turned down or rather rejected by the voters when it came to them to approve or reject the work. There aie several big fights on for this convention however, and unusual interest will be attached to the session from the time that opens. The body will organize electing a piesident, vLce, president and secretary, and all other officers necessary to hold the convention Pages, seigeant-at-arms, and a score of good appointments will be in the power of the delegates, and it is to be non-political, and the politicians are supposed to keep their hands off in the election of the delegates who shall be chosen in the same manner and foim as the regular state repre- sentatives 4. number of progressives havg been holding prelirmnaiy meetings in order to get in first m the selec- tion of the delegates, and a very strong organization is being put to- gether by such men and leaders as Rev. Heibert Bigelow, Brand Whit- lock, W D Hills, Elroy M. Aveiy, Edward W B'wood, and bparic pf labor organizations In the state. It is planned to open a regular state headquarters where tSe candi- dacy of those men who are for the office of delegate will be launched and pushed The cry is made that "the people must contiol these conventions and not the trusts'" and along these lines this campaign will be waged. Liberal subscriptions to conduct the work are alreadj pro- mised, and a bureau of publicity will be maintained to keep the voters of the state acquainted with the work done, and the progress made It will be a campaign of education rather than elimination, the leaders claim, and will be ironrtucted with that motto ever before them The liquor question will be the one great issue and while a provision has been made in the Green bill to keep this out of the regular constitution and have it submitted separately from the rest of the new constitu- tion, this clause will be whether or not the saloon shall be licensed in RIOTING CONTINUES IN CLEVELAND GARMENT WORKERS' STRIKE; ONE MAN KILLED, PATROLMAN CUT AND BEATEN: OTHER VIOLENCE A TAFT CELEBRATION.
