REPUBLICANS OF ILLINOIS
MEET IN STATE CONVENTION
WITH 1500 DELEGATES
The Only Contest In the Convention
Will be Over the Nomination for
State Treasurer, There 'Being Three
Springfield, 111., May 7. The repub
lican state convention, which con
venes at noon tomorrow, will bo one
of the largest state conventions ever
held In Illinois. There are to be
1500 delegates. The convention will
be held in the exposition building at
the state fair grounds. Besides the
delegates provision has been made
for seating over 5000 visitors. Today
finds all the hotels crowded with
delegates. For an off-year conven
tion much Interest is displayed,
which fact is owing In a great meas
ure to the spirited struggle for the
United States senatorship.
Tne convention will nominate a
candidate for clerk of the supreme
court, state treasurer, superintend
ent oi public instruction and three
trustees of the state university. The
nomination for clerk of the supreme
court Is virtually settled. Chris Ma
ner of Chicago will be the nominee
The contest of the convention will
be over the nomination for state
treasurer. The three leaders in the
race are: Floyd K. WTiittemore of
Springfield; Senator, Len Small of
Kankakee and Henry C. Begole of
Belleville. Other candidates are lurk
ing in the brush, chief among whom
is Homer F. Aspinwall of Freeport.
All indications point to the renomi
nation of Alfred Bayliss for Superin
tendent of Public Instruction.
Among the delegates and other
politicians in the field there is more
talk in regard to the United States
senatorship than the actual work be
fore the convention. The lieutenants
of Senator Mason, Charles G. Dawes
and Congressman Hopkins are pur
suing a lively button-hole campaign
and the convention is likely to have
a decisive result in fight for the toga
whether or not an actual indorsement
The platform will deal almost en
tirely with state affairs, letting na
tional issues alone beyond a general
Indorsement of the Roosevelt admin
istration. When it comes to state is
sues, however, there is likely to be a
hot fight on the resolutions. Speaker
Sherman will probably be on the
committee on resolutions. He will
support the "round robin" planks re
lative to assessment of state em
ployes and factional use of the party
organizations. Especially will he
champion a plank declaring for civil
service in state charitable Institu
tions. This will be a direct slap at
the Yates administration.
Successful Meeting of Dentists.
Hutchinson, Kas. , May 7. The
most successtul as well as the lar
gest meeting in the thirty year's his
tory of the Kansas State Dental As
sociation is that which began its ses
sions in Hutchinson today. "When
the gathering was formally opened
this morning, members of the asso
ciation and other visitors were pres
ent from all parts of the state. The
morning was given over to the work
of organization and other routine
business. This afternoon the asso
ciation listened to the annual address
of the president and the reports of
other officers of the association. Ad
dresses in memory of the deceased
members occupy this evening and
tomorrow will be taken up with clin
ics and papers of general interest
to those engaged in the profession.
COLD STORAGE AT MILTON.
Colonel Judson Made a Promise
Which Has Not Been Kept.
Milton fruit growers are In need
of a cold storage plant to preserve
and keep fresh their fruits from the
time of picking until loaded on the
ear for shipment. This has been a
crying need for several years, and its
need opens an opportunity for capital
that is sure to get returns of a sub
stantial nature on the investment.
Milton fruit growers have been able
to secure refrigerator cases this year
in which to pack their fruit, but this
does not fill the bill. It 1b a storage
plant that Is wanted. About a year
ago, Industrial Agent Colonel Judson,
of the O. It. & N., gave a promise
that if a local union was effected
ajnong the fruit growers of this sec
tion that he would see that a cold
storage plant would be erected at the
station here. The union was organ
ized and at the present time is in a
flourishing condition, there being in
the neighborhood of 75 of the most
prominent fruit raisers in the imme
diate vicinity of Milton enrolled as
members of the organization. There
is a splendid chance for parties with
means to establish such an institu
tion here, and Milton citizens stand
ready to lend assistance to any one
interested in such a scheme.
Sensational Testimony Given
Given in the Inquiry Against
HOW INDEPENDENT PACKERS
WERE RUN OUT OF BUSINESS.
Government Attorneys In Chicago
Will Pray for Confiscation by the
Government of All the Goods Ship
ped In Violation of the Sherman
Jefferson City, Mo., May 7. More
sensational testimony was adduced
at today's session of the beef inquiry.
Witnesses told of methods employed
by the alleged members of the beef
trust which run the independent
packers out of the business. The
principal means employed was the
boycotting of cattle raisers who sold
to the independents and selling meat
at ruinously low prices. One wit
ness testified that the packers ship
ped "concession" or over ripe beef
into St. Louis which was sold to the
restaurants and hotels at low prices.
This meat was chemically treated
to give it a good appearance and to
prevent immediate decomposition.
Beef Inquiry in Chicago.
Chicago, May 7. The present pro
gram of the government attorneys in
the proceeding against the alleged
beef trust contemplates the filing of
the bill for the injunction Friday,
was learned this morning. It may
contain a prayer for the confiscation
by the government of all the goods
shipped in violation of the anti-trust
law. If the prayer is granted it
would be a severe blow to the pack
ers of the combination, if such an
one exists, practically nullifying any
agreements that may have been

Salisbury said that the claims
made by the government at tho be
