Chicago, June 11. With the time
of ballotirrg but a few hours distant
at the most, the principal candidates
for the republican nomination for tne
presidency and their leaders were all
expressing confidence in the outcome.
Wood supporters affirmed that he
would show strength in excess 6f 300
on the first ballot. Some placed It at
350 and it requires 483 to nominate.
Lowden Looks to East.
Lowden supporters asserted they
needed only the adherence of a strong
eastern delegation to the Illinois gov
ernor's standard to put him over. It
was an open secret that they were

Scattered ripples of applause came
