VICTORIES WON BY MR.
-Hoover in two states
(Con tinned from page 1)
the democratic national conven
tion will be cast for Governor Al
fred E. Smith of New York so long
as he stands a chance of gaining
party's presidential nomination.
Instructions to this effect were
given by the state democratic con
vention here today.
If Governor Smith should be un
ible to gain the nomination, the
delegation is instructed to seek
from United States Senator Thonv
is J. Walsh reconsideration of his
withdrawal as a candidate for the
honor and if that is given to sup
jort the Montanan.
The republican convention did
not instruct its 11 delegates.
Senator Walsh was named as
one of the 16 members of the
state's delegation to the national
iemocratic convention. Each of
.he members will have half a vote.
Hoover Victory Disclosed
In many quarters the fact that
.he republican delegation was un
nstructed was looked upon as an
ndication of the strength of sup
porters of Herbert Hoover com
At the county caucuses, one
.hird of the approximately 175
ielegates to the state convention
ere instructed for Frank O. Low
Jeu, former Illinois governor, or
were known to come from districts
here the sentiment for the Illi
jois man was predominant.
Hoover supporters had content
ad themselves with making a fight
'or an uninstructed delegation,
and they looked upon the selection
jf such a delegation as a victory.

No bile made a fresh start today
oa his exploration of the arctic
regions. The dirigible Italia went
into air at 1:20 p. m. The weath
er was fine and all conditions ap
- The crews of the Italia and the
supply ship Citta dl Milano work
ed throughout the night making
preparations while their com
mander paced nervously np and
down the hangar directing opera
tions. There was some difficulty in
getting the motors to work satis
factorily, but finally all was in
radiness and a start was made
amid cheers of the hard worked
crews. Out over Kings bay the
airship was visible for a full hour,
so clear was the atmosphere, but
once over the ice she changed her
course to the northwest, follow
ing the Spitsbergen coast.
The Italia will try to fly to
Nicholas II Land, now known a
Lenin Land, instead of Greenland
as at first proposed. She will
follow the ice trail to the north,
then pass over Franz Josef Land
to her destination if possible.
Three hours after the start the
airship was over the north coast
of Spltzbergen. She is expected
to return Thursday night.
At 7o'ciock the Italia report
ed by radio that it had reached
the vicinity of Franz Josef Land
about half way to its objective
of Lenin Land. It had passed the
fog banks which had obscured
part of the early journey and
there was then good visibility for
a distance of 30 kilometers in
If the good weather holds when
Lenin Land is reached it is pro
posed to land Professor Petromol'
and two naval officers to make
photographic and topographic ex
amination of that little known
land "which is still represented by
an incomplete outline on maps.
