that already some of the delegates have
begun to arrive, it is surprising that no
scheme or exorcises for the opening of

of action has been discussed. The lo
cal committee on arrangements has
taken the view that the convention
shall be an open, one with the power to
tixits own program, select its own tem
porary and pennant oflicers, and do
such other things as appear proper to
it. The only person who is hilled for
a speech is Secretary Carlisle. The
