Preliminaries to the opening c.f thu
convention promise to be more routine
than usual because of the small num

many Mates have practically elimi

The committee shortly will an
nounce when hearings on contests will

number, contests may be filed up U

Ueretnfnra the committee has set a

Predictions Are Lacking.
New York, May 8. tl". I'.) tine
month from yesterday will come the
cheers, the blare of bands, the tumuli
of shouting', the scheming of 1 aders
heralding the opening of that (iiad
rennfal talkfest and votefest the na
tional conventions.
The Republican and Progressive con
claves will come to order on Wednes
day, June 7, in Chicago the former
at the Coliseum, the latter at tne Aud
itorium. A week later will come the
Democratic convention at St. Ixniis.
In the Republican and Progressive
camps not a leader is making any 30
day predictions as to what may hap
pen. The Progressives are practically
a unit for Roosevelt, but they are
standing pat awaiting developments
before making any admissions as to
their return to the Republican fold.
Hope to "Smoke Oat" Huglies.
The Republicans are hopeful of
"smoking out'' Justice Hughes when
the Oregon primaries of May 19 shall
have established a line on his strength.
His name will be before primary vot
ers in that tate, because of a court
ruling and despite the justice's own
protest. In the meantime 18 candi
dates, receptive or not, are looking con
scious when the presidential nomina
tion is mentioned In their presence
the 18 including: Hughes, Root, Roose
velt. Burton, Weeks, Cummins, Borah,
rd, Fairbanks, Estabrook. General
Dupont, General Leonard Wood, Gov
ernor Brumbaugh of Pennsylvania, ex-
Governor Hadley of Missouri. Governor '
Johnson of California, P. C. Knt.x, Sen
ator Sherman and Senator Harding.
Bitterness to Be "Lacking.
National Chairman Hilles expects to
call the sub-committee on arrange
ments for the national convention to
gether about June 3. This committee
will discuss permanent organiza Lion, as
will a meeting of the full national
committee, probably June 6. There
will be an utter absence of the bitter
ness and strife which marked tne pre
convention days of 1912.
But. judging from gossip of political
leaders, the convention itself will de
velop a first class, old time, free-for-all,
anybody's fight sort of a battle
of the ballots. The very fact that
there is an almost unprecedented num
ber of "those mentioned" for the nomi
nation indicates, the politicians here
say, considerable jockeying and prob
ably several ballots.
In all probability, all the Republican
convention will do on June 7 Is to
meet, organize and listen to the ODen-
ng 6peech of Nattonal Chairman
Hilles. Then adjournment will be taken
until Thursday, when Senator Harding
of Ohio, temporary chairman, w.ll de
liver his keynote speech.
Root Is Still in Ring.
Chicago. May 8 11'. P.) While po
litical dopesters were figuring tonight
where L.lihu Root stood in the Re
publican political race, Root's advance
agent, Job Hedges of New York, was
busy here getting ready to open Root
headquarters next week. Hedge said
John W. Dwlght, former whip of the
house, will be here next week lo get
the western end of the Root campaign
"This talk of Root not being a can
didate is silly, said Hedges. "It Is
an inaireci way or saying they see no
way to oppose him on merits."

Oregon Stone May
Not Get a Chance
Congressman MoArthur Explains That
Policy x wot to FaTOr Local Dis

A. Walker, secretary of the Portland
Stonecutters' union, has received from

will not be used in the new postottlce
building. ,
"1 have constantly held out for the;
use of Oregon materials," writes Mr- j
Arthur, ' but the supervising architect ;
informs me that it is not the policy
of his office to favor local materials
in the construction of government 1
buildtngs. I quite agree with you
that we have plenty of stone quarries
in Oregon that could turn out proper :
kind of building stone, but the super
vising architect will not favor cur ma

that the stone used will come from i
Indiana. '

The general feeling among admlnls
tration members lwas that peace with
out the fighting of another winter
campaign was possible, and even prob
able, but that tbe first move would be
a matter of months rather than weeks.
It was hoped that peace suggestions
might take definite form before snow
falls, but that depends on the success
of an allied offensive or on Germany's
backdown from its present position.
The Champagne -battle has demon
strated that the allies are seriously
i considering the relative costs and val

decided on, it is recognized that there

Interesting light on tbe war enttnient In
By Carl V. Ackerman.
Berlin. April 12. (By mall)
Though there Is unquestionably a
strong atndereurrent of peace talk In
Berlin at present, officials resent the
Intimation carried In a recent Wash
ington news dispatch that Chancellor
von Bethmann-Holl weg had asked Am
bassador Gerard to cancel his vacation
i lans in order to transmit peace of
fers from Germany.
There Is a general feeling among all
classes in Germany that the war ought
to end by fall. S-nie persons declare
peace should be made by Novt mber.
The impression prevails here that all
le.lligerents would like to avoid an
other winter campaign.
GNrard Denies Peace Mentioned.'
Some knowledge of this feeling, it Is
believed here, reached Washington and
Inspired the latest peace story. Gerard
has denied that the chancellor men
tioned peace in the conference that
gave rise to the report and further
more has protested again to the state
department because some of his confi
dential messages have been made pub
Berlin correspondents kmV about
Gerard's conference with Chancellor
von Bethmann-Hollweg. They were
requested to able nothing about It !-e-cause
of the fear that wild rumors
would spread as to the purpose of ;he
meeting. But, since the state "leaked"
some information to the public, the
facts regarding the meeting are now
tassed by the censor.
Asked to Forego Taeatlon.
Several months ago Gerard asked for
leave of absence to return to the
nlted States to take part fn the coni
ng presidential campaign, lie was at
hat time a receptive candidate for the
Democratic nomination for governor of
New York. In Marih he received word
from Secretin's of State Lansing that
he could leave his post here. Later he
was asked hy the imperial chancellor
o forego his vacation. The reason
for the request Is nflt known, but the
ambassador declared the story circu
lated from Washington was not true.
This report, however, was .cabled to
ill the world and caused much 111 feei
