San Francisco, Juire 25—The comple-
tion of the temporary roll of the demo-
cratic national convention is in sight
whtiu the national committee resumed
consideration of credentials with the
Georgia contest before it and Reed's
effort to gain a seat of the floor with
the Missouri delegation also to be
passed upon. The influx of .delega-
tions which began yesterday have con-
tinue^ and out/of the congestion in the
hotels has arr/se, what some observers
have professed to recognize as a Bpurt
of nomination sentiment toward Cox.
The elusive McAdoo Boom took on a
public form when cars bearing the in-
scription "Mcall Do" and also appeared
on hat bands. The action of the nat-
ional committee in adopting a resolu-
tion urging the convention to grant
an equal committee suffrage and mem-
bership to women of the party gave
the delegates another subject to dis-
cuss. If the committees plan is rati-
fied the committee hereafter will be
double its present size and composed i
of men and women members from each S
state with equal voting power. Sec-
retary Daniels was to arrive making
fourth member of the cabinet present. I

mately 15.000 letters «ent by express

San Francisco, June 26 — H. J.
Brown, speaking for Governor Ed-
wards of New Jersey said if Demo-
crats failed to repsodlcated the Vol- j
stead act, Edwards would withdraw1
from the race. He stated Edwards
would receive support from tihe labor
party and from Republican wets and
declared "if workers don't got beer.
There will be a third party."
President Wilson believes it im-
neces ary that the Democrats consid-
er prohibition of the Irish question.

San Francisco, June 26 President
Wilson does not favor the ltemocra-
tic convention taking any cognizance
in the prohibition or the Irish ques-
tions in the Democratic platform, it
was learned here today. Senator
Glass of Virginia, conferred with
the party leaders today and gave
them the president's views on the
'I am , not ambassador to the con-
vention from President Wilson,'
Glass saidf "I bring no formal mes-
sage from the chief executive and
have no draft of any planks that the
President has prepared. I believe,
however, that I have a clear cut Idea
as to what the President wants. I
have the Virginia platform witli me,
President Wilson has endorsed that
platform" he said.
it is believed that It Is a good
thing that Senator Glass doei* not
take his own presidential boom very
"The Virginia delegation is Instruc-
ted for me, but I wish It was not
for It makes It very emharassiug for
mo," he said.
Cox and Hitchcock were tentative
about the ticket agreed on In the
conference today between the sup-
porter* of the Ohio governor and the
adherents of the Nebraska Senator.
''While Hitchcock's name will be
presented as a presidential candidate
he Is willing to accept second If the

dry prohibition continued today as
the big theme of agitation kan's well
known "Dry" principles, ho will
throw his support In the desired dl
with the republicans, the chaos of
preconvention days has descended
upon San Francisco, bag and hag-
gage, leaving the arriving delegates
confused and confounded.
William J. Bryan, it Is claimed by
some, with his "dry" backing can pre-
vent the nomination of anybody
who doesn't suit him. It will take
but 365 votes-a third, plu- one, of the
total 1,002 delegates to do this.
Strength of "Wets"
But, warn the friends of Gov Kd-
ward I. Edwards, of New Jersey, do
not overlook the "wets." They wilt
control at least 365 votes lu the con-
vention and It is assured they will
in turn prevent the nomination of
any candidate unfavorable to them.
Senator Robert L. Owen, of Okla-
homa, will form a coalition with Wll-
liiim J Bryan and precipitate *
rough and tumble opposition the
moment the cohorts of the adininliv
tration insist upon an out and out
ratification of the league of nations
plank. And with not a fed delegates
behind them, many believe this com-
bination will be able to rally more
than a third of the delegates to their
side, thus blocking the .selection of
a Wllsonlan nominee.
Aside from the two-thirds mlo,
now unsually bothersome of tha-
democrat^ the problem of a nominee-
is worrying them They are every
bit as hazy as their choice of a
standard bearer as were the republi-
cans in Chicago.
