Continuation! of I balloting for
presidential nominee.
New York, July 2. Win. G. Mc
Adoo, ran to a; new high mark In
tonight's balloting In the Demo
cratic national convention. He
bassed the much sought goal of
500 votes by dint of much frantic
"work and persuasion and maneu-
, Vering on the part of his follower
"managers, who declared they
'hadn't finished their work yetl ,
. Running close. id the,43 and 44
record Baltimore ballot, respect
; ively, the Madison Square Garden
exhibition gave promise of setting
. a new - mark. McAdoo hit his
high mark so far in .the 'fortieth
ballot when he polled 605
votes. Smith at this time had
dropped a little below bis - high
-level, 323, made on previous
ballots. At the close of" the
thirtieth ballot last night Mc
Adoo bad stood : at ; 415 votes.
Thus he gained -nearly a hundred
in today's balloting and the votes
- 5ie got were taken principally from
John "W. Davis, who fell to- sev
enty on the last ballot tonight
s. McAdoo people went into . to
night's session attempting to es
timate what damage had J been
.done to their cause by the riot-
ousjperformanceof the late after
noon session when' Wm. Jennings
Bryan precipitated' a tumult with
his. approval of McAdoo from the
platform and j caused cries - of
"oil." At t first ' thfe ; were
' various predictions of what the
effect might be at the night ,sea
1 slon, but when' the leaders got
outside and thought jit over, it
became apparent that the prin
cipal effect of the Bryan Incident
had been i to solidify the Smith
forces and to spur the : McAdoo
people on to a nev record. To
pass the .600 mark tonight and
adjourn while it was held there
was their first goal. . They made
it. : ) f !- -fv - .
. To' attain the majority was
their next goal. Whether they
can do itwiltibe, decided tomor
row.. H ' '; : h . J
. There: In tbetbfflng, lies a new
' threat of an attack on the two
thirds rule aftervthe majority
had been attained. That!, issue
Temains to be clarified.' There is
'no antbenie information concern
ting the McAdoo 'plans available
tonight; - They day's proceedings
were full of incident and ; color.
Twelve ballots were the ; accomp
lishment of, the two sessions of
the day." The desertion of two
('votes in the New York delegation
from 1 Small to McAdo ; gave the ,
McAdo people all they wanted for
a demonstration at the ; day ses
sion and the sliding of ; Missouri
and Oklahoma to the ' McAdoo
; standards ; at the night sessions
furbished the occasion 1 for the
- jlemonstratlon tonight, i i . '
Tbe real sensation was Bryan,
on tbe platform to make a' speech
on pretence .of explaining his
vote, launching an attack on big
business and organized -wealth,
and presenting a list of candidates
Srhom he ; considered available -headed
by McAdoo. i - i

Last of "Senior" Genro Who
Helped Build Present Jap
fanese Empire Passes to
the Beyond
As Statesman and. Close Ad-
visor to Throne He Saw .
i Feudal Ideals Leave
,T0KIO, July 2.- Prince Mayso-
hayaj Matsukata! died tonight;
marking by his passing the close
of a distinct period In Japanese
history. For he was the last of
the J "senior" ; genro, that small
and picturesaue erouo of ancients
who led In restoration of the em.
peror to power and the building
of a
modern empire of Japan;
Of the "genro," or elder states
men, . only one remains-Prince
KInmocoi Salon ji. The latter,
howfever, was admitted to the se
lect genro council only half a doz
en years, while Matsukata was a
survivor .from feudal times in
. Whether the genro will con
tinue to exist is an unanswered
question. ; v
r'The genro council has no place
in the constitution of Japan; It
has; been a natural growth, ; the
product , of the peculiar clrcum
stances of the last half century of
Japanese politics. A small group
of leaders, through the eminence
of itheir .gifts, and the value of
their services .to the state, seized
power and held it without const!
tutional warrant long: after their
share in actual government was
finished. Tfiey became the advis
ors closest to the throne; the ei
peror : asking them for consulta
tion when crises faced the nation
The old genro and Matsukata
saw Japan move from a feudal
nation to the front rank of mod
era day powers. Matsukata,' in
his youth, fought as a Japanese
Samurai, armed with a Ions; spear,
In the : battles . which precede the
overthrow of the Shogum and the
re-establishment of the Mikado as
the only ruler of Japan. He lived
to! master the mysteries of modefn
national finance, to see- the rise of
three great new empires and the
fail of one; to see the coming to
his. own once-feudal . Japan of
steam, electricity, great guns, air
planes and radio. - - '

vegetarian and attributed his
longevity to his abstinence from

A Prospect That it Will Be
Ready io Take the First
: Fiber This Fall
While Hon. T. B. Kay
tending the convention of
the Ro-
tary clubs of the world at Toronto
he met-C6l W. B. BartrunV and his
brother and Sidney Starling, who
are interested in linen manufac
turing In Canada and 'the United
States, -and - who are- considering
lauaching- an effort for f a linen
mill in Salem. They visited seve
ral linen mills In Canada and the
United States: 'and made an In
vestigation-' of theirT methods and
markets, etc.. . ' :
r It Is tbe intention of jCol." Bar
trum to return to Salem very soon.
He was to start on Tuesday, but
he may be delayed for a few days
with pressing business In, connec
tion with plans for launching the
effort here. :
tt is to be presumed that Mr
Starling and Col. Bartrum. both
of whom have had the Salem pro
ject in mind, are to join forces
Their idea' is to put . up a mill
capable of - spinning i yarns ..andr
twines and of weaving crashes and
towels and of making fine linens.
; Ready for Fiber
The retting of last year's crop
is going on steadily at the state
flax plant. It will go on till the
fall rains set in. and until the
weather is humid enough for
scutching,-about Octoberlst, after
which : the state flax plant will.
have fiber for sale; will be in the
market with fiber at least till th
dry season of 1925; and continu
ously, in case It Is decided to put
In appliances for humlditlng, in
the. scutching mill.
It is the idea of Cot. BartrOm
and Mr. Starling to be in position
to buy the state's fiber as fast as
it is turned out, and to commence
spinning as soon os possible after
the first of October. ,
Some Fine Samples
Mr. Kay brought home some
fine samples of table linens and

Order Prohibits Shooting on

Mayor John B. Giesy yesterday
announced a ban, on the shooting
of fire crackers and fire works
on all days except . the fourth of
July.. The dry ' condition which
prevails in and about Salem, to
ether with the lack of water, , is
given by the mayor as the reason
fro his order. Last year he was
lenient in the matter and does not
desire to entirely deprive tlve kid
dies of their fun this year.;
The complete '' cooperation of
the citizens of Salem is asked to
enforce the order. The danger ot
fire and the low . pressure in the
city water mains combine to make
extreme care necessary. -It Js sug'

NEW YORK, N. Y., July 2.q
That stormy !petrel of democratic
politics, Wm. Jennings Bryan, ad
ed; another tumultuous chapter to
ills , long career today when Le
went "before the democratic na
tional; convention in an attempt to
stenv the tide of opposition to Wil
liam G. McAdoo.- r
Interrupting, an air day succes
sion lot Inconclusive ballots for a
npminee. for the presidency, the
fhree-ilme candidate of his party
plunged ."the convention into a near
riot and finally was all but driven
from the platform by. heckling del
egates andlbooing galleries. , .;,-;,
Besides Mr. McAtioo,-' he men
tioned ' several ; other; presidential
aspirants who .'would be satisfac
tory . to him but none of them
aroused more than momentary en
thusiasm, i. ;, .J. ,. ;,
Neither did the conferencea of

places at Hhe head of the list.
:Mr. Bryau.obtalsed hl leave ti
Speak by requesting ; unanliotj
consent to explain his vote on th
38th ballot. , . , '- i'
The speaker began with a plea
lor' party harmony and moved on
amid applause to declare he would
name none of : the men to whom
Ljhe ; objected and wanted . only to
call attention; anew tQ several he
cosidered eminently, qualified.
; , The first, name he mentioned
was that of Dr. A. A. Murphre of
Florida state wniversity. Laugh
ter swept the floor and galleries
and a few good natured gibes were
shouted at the commoner. There
were ripples of 'applause as he
presented In turn the names of
Joseph us Daniels bf North Caro
lina; -Senator RobinBon of Arkan
sas;. Senator Ralston of Indiana;
Senator Walsh of oMntana and E.
T. Meredith; of Iowa. Both ap
plause and laughter, answered a
presentation of the qualifications
of Mr. Bryan's brother, the gov
ernor of Nebraska - :.'
The name of Mr. McAdoo had
been reserved for the last, and the
speaker stirred up -a demojiatra
tion of approval from the McAdoo
delegates and : a rumbling ava
lanche of boos and hisses from the
Smith supporters In the . gallery
by declaring the former secretary
of the treasury was entitled to the
nomination "whether you like hlra
or not, whether you nominate hint
or not." " . ,
, Cries of ."oil" and "we want
Smith" rolled out in Increasing
volume as' Mr. Bryon sought to to
on with his speech. In tbe midst
of the uproar, Joseph F. Fitxpat
rick of Jersey City, climbed a chair
in the New Jersey delegation ard
shouted up to Mr. Bryan a ques
tion about MeAdoo's acceptance of
a retainer from OIL- .
"Mr. Doheny's retainers related
to oil in Mexico," retdrted the
commoner. "I will go further and
say-that if any oil ever touched
McAdoo the Intense and persistent
opposition of Wall Street has
washed It all away." : . N 1
Then, while the noise and con
fusion continued. eDnnis F.JDunr
lavy, of Ashtabula, Ohio, shot
back a questio about a tax refund- i
ing 4ntbe case of a Youngstown,
concern - tor ' which McAdoo was
attorney. I: .-- :
.. "Then you are. not content t
rest your case' on oil?" Mr. Bryaa
began but he was drowned out
again by a chorus of boos in whicU
many" of the: delegates Joined.
