New York, June 1.1. The New York
Evening Sun's financial review today
Pronounced heaviness in Anglo
French bonds was an interesting if not
the most important feature in the slot'k
market today. There was nothing in
the overnight news or in the known
developments during the session to ac
count for the action selling which car
ried the securities dowu half a point
from 95 3-4 to 9.1 1-4 with only n mod
erate recovery, but financial interests
found a fairly satisfying explanation
in the widespread rumors regarding the
possibility of another largo English
loan, coupled with the impending nego
tiations for a French credit of $100,
000,000. First prices were but slightly changed
in either direction and while the un
dertone was strong speculative im
pulse was lacking. In the abseuce of
any fresh public buying dealing con
tinued largely professional.
United States Steel ruled strong at
n fraction improvement, but the same
issue displayed no grct vitality and
there was a pronounced decrease in ac
tivity as the session progressed.
Trading in Wall Street was limited
to narrow movements in special issues
iu the late afternoon. Steel common
was strong while railways were heavy,
though extremely dull.
GOOD HOP YEAR
The warm dry weather now prevail
ing is making hops grow rapidly and
is tending to keep down lice and other
vermin. Growers in the vicinity of
Eugene are giving their hop fields
thorough cultivation, and in soipo cases
are going over the yeards to train up
stray vines which had not taken hold
of the wires. The vines have nil reach
ed the cross wires and arc spreading
out nicely. Eugene Guard.
his "lucky dav."
The only thing which President Wil
son left t the convention on its own
hook was to write the minor planks of
the platform. The "draft" which
Secretary of War linker carried, it be
came known today, carried merely thej
president s wishes in the matter ot
the wording of the principal planks
those on Americanism, national de
fense, foreign relations and the other
really big issues. It is up to the reso
lutions committee to work out the
minor platform declarations. A ut
cominittee set to work early today to
draft those plunks. They will report
to the full committee this afternoon.
A Rare Political Event
Old timers in democratic ranks re
called today that if Marshall is re
nominated and there was a generally
conceded bn'.ief he would be it will
be an act almost unique lu conventions,
fn onlv one or two instances hereto
fore, have vice presidents been re
named. Political expediency hereto
fore has directed that the running
mate job be switched. Hut political
expediency this vear dictates that et
fort be made to offset the republican
bid for Indiana's electoral vote made
iu the naming of Fairbanks for vice
president, by renominating .Marshall
From indications today, Mars'.iall's
name will be the only one submitted
to the convention ns a vice presiden
tial candidate. Illinois boosters for
Roger Sullivan practically decided not
to suggest their "favorite son" as a
nominee and the Missouri delegation
is expected to follow suit in deciding
not to present Governor Major's name.
This would leave, as Marshall s oniv
opponent, John H. Morehead of Ne
braska, who has all along been consid
ered out oi the running.
The retiring national chairman, Wil
liam F. McCombs. today asked J resi

a campaign manager by Friday." All

was that Homer S. Cummings of (on
