At the primary A. Mitchell Palmer
received US voles Thomas Watson 132

rule and combined with the Smith
forces in naming anti-Palmer dele-

tive committee rules under which the
primary was held should prevail.

H. H. Perry of Gainesville spoke on
Clark Howell's long service in the
national committee nnd of the high
regard In which he is held by its
members. Ho spoke of Mr. Howell's
fairness and said he hoped the com-
mittee would not be nwayed by per-
sonal considerations but would con-
sider the caso on its merits.
Mr. Perry argued that the election
of the Smith-Watson delegates was
regular. They were chosen by the
stale convention which he claimed
witfl the parent body. The credentials
of the nntl Palmer men ho said were
inaccurate In Htutlng that these dele-
gates had been elected in pursuance
of the results of the primary. He
pointed out that the credentials of
the Smith-WatHon men were certified
by the chairman of the convention
while the credentials of tho opposition
delegates were certified by the secre-
tary of the xecutiv committee.

Daniels row over the navy's conduct
of the war was revived today with the
publication of a letter from Hear Ad-
miral Denton C. Decker commandant
of the Seventh Naval District Florida
in . which ho charges that Secretary
Daniels in his testimony before the
senate investigating committee' inten.
tionally and deliberately" misrepre-
sented certain acts of Jtiar Admiral

The letter dated June 17 and ad-
dressed to Chairman llal of the com-
mittee was published in the Army

Admiral Decker said he also sent
a copy of it to Secretary Daniels.
Admiral Decker formerly was rava?
attache at Madrid but was removed
during the war. Secretary Daniels has
stated that his removal followed rep-
resentations from Ambassador Willara
that he was encroaching on diplomatio
functions in his activities tlVre.
The admiral declared in his letter
that "from my personal knowledge
of Mr. Daniels' character 1 am leu
to believe that whatever Us cited in
his statements to the discredit of the
officers is bo perverted a nil twisted

"that if these officers had bowed

"My explanation of the incidents
set forth by Mr. Daniels is based

"I have no desire in this letter to

that h0 has abused his power; that he
has done all this for unworthy mo-

of the country demand that there

Regarding K Slrecl Northwest
Nonh Cisco representing a number
of residents on K street northwest
appeared before the board for Infor-
mation regarding paving contracts ex-
isting between the city and the Ard-
more Construction Company. Mr. Cis-
co stated to tho board that the citi-
zens had been informed that the time
limit on the contracts were about to
expire thereby nullifying the bonds
to insure the work and wanted to
know what the city had done or pro-
posed to .do in the premises.
He was Informed by the mayor. In

limit has not expired that the con-
tract Is In full force and effect that
the Ardmore Construction Company
their bondsmen nnd the receiver
have been legally notified to complete
tho work and unless something Is
done at unco a suit against the bonds-
nvn would be Instituted to compel
them to fulfill the contract.
A letter addressed to each of the
parties named above was read by the
clerk which convinced Mr. Cisco and

proper steps had been taken to safe-
guard the peoples interest and they

his report he stated that he began

the board nnd after a pressure of
59 pounds had been reached the pres-
sure suddenly dropped to 22 pounds
when he ceased and began to look
for the break.
He stated that the break . that

structions and the mayor said that
unless otherwise ordered by the board
he would instruct the engineer to
continue the test r.s soon as the
breaks are repaired until pipe Is test-
ed to withstand u pressure of 100
pounds. The matter was put to a
vote after tho question was duly
presented. Commissioners Wilson and
Young voting in favor of the test and

Many who talked -of the matter
were of the opinion that a test of

covering water rights at Hickory
creek wns brought up for hearing
again last night and resulted in Its
being accepted by the city with some
slight modifications suggested by th-3
Tho contract which is perpetual In
Its nature gives t0 tho city the right
to use water from Hickory creek for
the pipe line to erect a dam and
make such other Improvements as
deemed necessary for the purpose of
furnishing un adequate water supply
to tho city.
The contract specifies that the city
shall pay for the water at Ihe rate
of two cents ier thousand gallons
with a maximum und minimum figure
set of 750000 gallons per day. In
other words the city agrees for the
privileges embodied in tho contract
to pay to U. S. Joines the sum of
$15 per day for water rights. The con-
tract specifies that the city may use
as much more water as necessary
without -additional cost.
Commissioner Young was of the
opinion that tho city could not enter
into such a contract and vigorously
opposed Its passage until such time
when it could be more thoroughly
discussed and understood. He Is of
the opinion that the contract was not
a contract nt all but a franchise
lhat should be submitted to a vote of
the people before the city officials
bound the city in any contract that
was perpetual in' its nature.

to a vole with the result that Com-
missioners Wilson and Carter voted
for the contract and Commissioner

jority of the board being in favor of

Commissioner Young stated that he
expected his next step would be to
institute injunction proceedings against
the fulfillment of the contract and

before the question is finally settled.
