COAL RULING TO STAND Domestic Fuel Not to Get Priority Over Kiport Product. WASHINGTON", July 3. The Inter state Commerce commission today refused to modify its order giving shipments to tidewater of coal for domestic use priority over the move ment of coal for export. Modifica tion had been asked by Secretary Al exander, who said the order would have a "disastrous effect" upon Amer ican foreign trade and shipping.

The Cox people claimed that when the break came they would have the best of it in both states. When Chairman Robinson attempt ed to announce the results of the 20th ballot he got as far as the name of McAdoo when the McAdoo crowd, apparently all set with a demonstra tion and with the accomplishments all fixed, began to whoop it up again. The band in the gallery, which was silent when the Bryan people at tempted a demonstration for their champion, blared and boomed with out ceasing, helping the McAdoo dem onstration along as it had on pre vious days. Many women crowded the floor and took part in the McAdoo demonstra tion. Many of them who danced about in the winding line of McAdoo boomers or who were carted along on the shoulders of men were neither delegates nor alternates to the con vention, but spectators who invaded the floor in the excitement of the j moment and took part in whooping ' up the circus. Noise Is Continued. J There appeared to be no stopping : the noise for McAdoo. Although not i participated in by a large proportion i of delegates, it made up in volume for that which It lacked in numbers and whenever the racket on the floor ; gave evidence of a slump the gal- j lerles bolstered it up with new en thusiasm. Chairman Robinson did not seem to be much disturbed at ' the way the noise makers were using ; up time, and there was a suggestion ' that the convention officials were perfectly agreeable to letting the j convention wear itself down" to the point of exhaustion where it would ; not resist an adjournment. i McAdoo gained four In Alabama, j taking two from Davis and two from Cox at the start of the 21st ballot.

North Dakota went wholly into the McAdoo column. Tennessee Jumped back wholly to Davis with her 24, taking votes from McAdoo, Cox and Palmer. McAdoo In Wisconsin gained five from Cox. The convention went to the 22d ballot. Georgia's 28 went back to Palmer after staying with McAdoo for one ballot. . ventlon still searched for a nominee in vain. Chanfrea Made on Twenty-first. The changes of the 21st ballot were: McAdoo gained 65 votes. Cox lost 30. Palmer lost 34. Davis gained 18. Owen lost 5. A recess to Monday morning at 10 o'clock again was proposed and a demand for a rollcall followed. It failed. On a viva voce vote the convention again refused to adjourn. The 22d ballet was as much out of luck as all Its predecessors. It pro duced no nominee and came nowhere near making any change worth while. The changes were that McAdoo lost 23, Palmer gained 22 V4, Cox gained 4, Davis lost 2. Then there was an other motion to adjourn until 10 o'clock Monday morning, and it went through without opposition. TIIAXKS GIVEN TO BRVAX Bone-Dry Body Orfers to Elect Commoner to Presidency.

Demonstration Dies Array. Then, as suddenly as it began, the demonstration began to die away, and the convention went back to examine Itself and see whether it had shouted and wiggled itself out of a deadlock. It apparently had not and proceeded to the 19th ballot. Cox gained two in Alabama, one from McAdoo and one from Davis. The 20th ballot still found the con vention making no progress. With Cox, McAdoo and Palmer In a deadlock in that order, prospects for a nomination were bad. At the conclusion of the announce ment of the 20th ballot, Thomas J.

Then, after the adjournment reso lution had been beaten once by the efforts of the Cox people. Senator Harrison made a new motion that the convention recess until Monday morn ing at 10 o'clock. It was said that Georgia was about to give some of her 28 Palmer votes to McAdoo as a complimentary vote and that the Cox people wanted to avoid it. A rollcall on Harrison's motion was demanded and Harrison withdrew his motion, and the convention went back to the rollcall of states for nominees.

MADRID. Twenty-five thousand sightless persons are added to the population of Spain every year owing to inattention to cases of smallpox, measles, scarletlna, meningitis and the after-effects of sexual maladies, writes Count de la Fa in El Sol.

He points out that they are neither properly cared for nor educated so that they may take care of themselves. He says most of the institutions for the blind and there are many such establishments in the country with rare exceptions are inefficient and antiquated, with teachers lacking the necessary, training. The blind are taught very superficially basket and box making or the most elementary music. He declares - nobody believes in their efficacy, although many give subscriptions out of pure charity.

COTTONWOOD FALLS, Kan. In addition to an already large family of kittens, a cat which belongs to the M. Brent family of South Fork has adopted two coyote puppies. Several weeks ago when W. W. Buckbee and R. H. Carter, who live near the Brent farm, found the den of a coyote on the latter's place they captured several very small coyote puppies. When shown at the Brent farmhouse some of the children want ed the little coyotes and paid their captors for two of them. The little coyotes were placed among the kittens belonging to the jold family cat and, after a careful scrutiny and a few sniffs, the old cat began mothering them the same as her own kittens. Now the cat's family of kittens and the two adopted coyote puppies are nearly two months old and all live together happily and appear to be making the most of life. The coyotes are getting much bigger than the kit tens and are playful and mischievous. In the rough-and-tumble tussles they are continually staging the coyotes are the stronger, but the kittens are more active, so it is about an even match as yet. While the coyotes can easily wallop the kittens in a saright out fight, yet the latter, when on the defensive, will curl up on their backs and keep the coyote puppies at bay by the rapid kicks of hind legs and'the scratching of their sharp claws.
