head of the conservative party, failed
or six votes of the majority necessary
to elect ber president-general of the
oelrtr of the Daughters of the Ameri

which began today and closed lata to

Mrs. William Cummins Story 574.
Mrs. John Miller Horton (administra

None of the candidates for the seven
vlce-rrenidents-general remaining to be

ties and they. too. will have to be bal
loted upon again tomorrow. It was
agreed to have the third ballot begin
at 10 A. M. tomorrow and close at 5
J. M. At a late hour there was no In
timation as to whether Mrs. Bryan
would withdraw from the race.
Ballot Holds All Iatereat.
Aside from the casting of the second
ballot, there was little Interest In the
proceedings of the congress. It had
bn planned by the administration to
bring to the attention of the delegates
rcveral radical amendments to the con
stitution and bylaws. When these sub.
Jects came up for discussion, however,
a motion carried to hold the proposed
amendment over until the congress
a year hence.
The voting was much more rapid to
day, partly because of the fewer names
to be voted upon, and also because the
delegates were more familiar with the
method of casting ballots.
Iowa Said t Shift Vote.
Throughout the afternoon there were
rumors of changes In the votes of vari
ous delegations. Iowa was reported to
have shifted Its vote from Mrs. Horton
to Mrs. Story, who had a lead of 37
votes on the first ballot.
The delegates were received today
by rresldent and Mrs. V ilson.

Finding: of Camera Tripod Near Im

With Cneaslnesa by Some.
FORT STEVENS, April 17. (Special-)
Despite persistent rumors emanating
from Seaside and vicinity to tne eneci
that dirigible balloons and other type
of aerial craft nave been seen In th
Immediate neighborhood of the fortifi
cations at Fort Stevens, the Army au
thorities have not been able "to authen
ticate these reports.
The supposition Is advanced here that
the presence of the huge steel sub
marine mines that they are now plant
ing in the harbor entrance of the Co
lumbia have the appearance of dirigi
bles as they swing from the davits of
the mlneplanter Rlngold, a distance of
15 miles. In England recently a toy
balloon was responsible for a war scare.
The finding of a new camera tripod
near one of the new batteries at Fort
Stevens two days ago has been the
cause of considerable local uneasiness,
since It Implied that the possessor had
fled hastily, and possibly with Import
ant photogrsphlc plates In his possess
ion. Though the aerial craft Idea Ib gener
ally scouted, the presence of such con
crete evidence as the camera tripod
within a stone's throw of an important
fortification, is declared to be bqna fide
evidence of the presence of some mys
terious and possibly dangerous visitor.
About a year ago a spy was discov
ered at the same battery. He escaped
from the sentry who halted him.

WASHINGTON, April 17. With the

sent a letter to every midshipman at
Annapolis warning each that hereaftes

"The sentence of confinement would
be Justified In Cook's case," said Secre

opportunity to Issue a warning before,
I have let the sentence stand at dismis
sal. Tour hazer is essentially a bully
and must necessarily have a streak of
Innate cruelty. The United States Navy

The victim of Midshipman Cook's haz
