Coliseum, St. Louis, June 1 1. Seven
teen continuous minutes of fervid, per
juring enthusiasm, flag waving and
singing started off the democratic nn
tUmtil convention here today. It was
'Aiarfir. K. Glynn's rousing laudation
not by name, but by unmistakable ref
erence of President Wilson that gave
ti e rrnioci'ats au opportunity to blow
o-'f steam a little.
The convention was half an liour in
-r-seioHing and started off rather quiet
ly. Vx-Govornor Glynn 's heart-to-heart
nU-le of oratory took his audience's

oplnnding throughout his "keynote"

Official Notification of Hughes
To Be Delayed For Trad
By Carl D. Groat
(T'uited Tress staff correspondent)
New York, June 14. I the old
guard thinks it can get hold of the
machinery of the republican organiza-1
tion and conduct the campaign, of
Charles Kvan Hughes to suit itself, it
would best watch out for bumps.
('lose personal friends of the candi
date have let it be known tiiat Hughes
will insist on having the major say in
the personnel of the campaign manag
ers and in the conduct of the cam
paign. He will strive to give all its
actions a vitality which will attract
the vote of the progressives. There is
a feeling at headquarters that should
the grand old guardsters ot the Mur
ray Crane, Boise I'enrose, Heed Smoot
type apN;ar to have control of the
campaign, t.ie progressive vote should
be very coy.
On the other hand, the Hughes per
sonal camp believes that even the most
case-hardened srtindpatlers will be
willing to pitch in and. work for
Hughes, even if the old guard leaders
are placed, so far as the public eye is
concerned, on the sidelines.
Would Tlx Hughes Speech '
W. Murray Craio, of the republican
"big three" had a long conference
with Huglies last night and is still in
town today, perhaps for further word.
The date for the conference of Hughes
with the subcommittee of the nation
al committee that is nameless but thnt
actually is a ca,maign "steering corn
tee" has not been definitely fixed.
The conference will probably take
place within a few days. The com
mittee will probably learn that it is a
" steering committee" alright enough
but. that Hugiies is the helmsman.
Former1 notification of Hughes of
his candidacy has been delated and
probably will not taliTT place until early
in July. Jn this the hand of the old
guard is seen. The delny will give the
old guardsters much chance for coun
sel with Hughes, in which they can
urge upon him their ideas to be incor
porated in his formal speech of accept
ance. Hughes plans to detail his ideas
in that seecli and the guardsters arc
anxious that the details be right.
Hughes said he had nothing to say
when he was asked to make known the
police he would pursue in the present !
Mexican situation. Ho expressed him-
self as " much nlensed " witli the letters
