(/P)--Nino clis tinguished democrats were presented to the party's national convention 1 in the nominating session which dragged into this morning, and each was extolled as tho one man to lead to victory in November's presidential election. Gov. Roosevelt, "Cactus Jack' Garner, Al Smith, former Gov. Byrd of Virginia; Gov. Ritchie, former Ben. Reed of Missouri, Melvin Traylor of Illinois; Gov, White of Ohio, and Alfalfa BUI Murray of .Oklahoma--all these were offered. Starting tho oratory, John E. Mack of Poughkeepsle, N. Y,, proposed tho name of his old friend Gov. Roosovclt.

Nominating Smith, Gov. Ely of Massachusetts, praised him as "a modern Andrew Jnckson, a positive, virile, straight speaking, plain thinking statesman."

Glass of Virginia, who was secreVary of the treasury under Wilson, presented his state's former governor, Harry Floyd Byrd, as a governor of Virginia "who made a record never surpassed in tho entire history of the state." Michael F. Igoo of Chicago proposed Melvin Traylor, Illinois banker, as a new typo of candidate to whom "tho American people would turn with infinite relief as against the weakness, the indecision, the lack of vision, the ineptitude and tho Incompetence of Herbert Hoover.' 'Man of Destiny' Maryland's governor, Albert C. RltcMJe, was placed In nomination by Sqb. Tydlngs, who termed him "the rW of destiny," Nominating former Sen. James A.

The genius, John E. Mellish, of St. Charles, is one of the four men n the world capable of making the sensitive telescopic lenses upon which all astronomical knowledge depends. He faces 20 years' imprisonment for a crime he has confessed, involving hiu 15-year-old daughter. What shall the law do with him? Impressed by eminent 'scientists' pleas for mercy, courts wondered if Mellish might be sentenced to "20 years of nights" in jail, while being escorted daily to his workshop to grind out lenses and work on delicate telescopes. When State's Attorney George p. Carbary would not consent to this, a plan was evolved to build a laboratory within the walls of a state penitentiary so that Mellish might continue his work while satisfying society for his crime. Tho proposal awaits approval of state officials. Meanwhile, Mellish remains in nominal custody of the Kane county sheriff, passing his nights in the comity jail at Geneva and walking out with a guard each morning to his workshop. He has been a free man by day and a prisoner by night since he was indicted nine months ago. Mellish's interest in astronomy began in his boyhood when he was given a $2 telescope at Christmas. He soon outgrew this and bought another for $19. Then because of his astonishing a'mateur astronomical observation and the remarkable lenses he had made at home, he was given a job at Yerkes observatory where his fame became world-wide. Mellish will be brought to trial soon and the unusual arrangements for his confinement defined by Circuit Judge John Newhall. The charge against him was brought by his wife, who has borne him 11 children. HOORAY! HOORAY! STAGE MANAGER: .You received, a tremendous ovation. They are still clapping. What did you say?

CHICAGO, July' 1, (A 3 )--The womenfolk of six contenders starred. in the democratic nomination drama --a drama in which official feminine participation was more spectacular than ever before in a political convention. Candidates' kin last night contributed .political as well as human interest. Mrs. Melvin A- .Traylor. declared a "personal-second choice of darkhorse. Newton Bakers" even as she watched a demonstration for her own husband, Mrs. "Alfalfa Bill" Murray apparently stayed away. But the Smiths, the Roosevelbs, a Byrd, a Resd and a White were watching all night long in Chicago Stadium.. Approach Climax It was the approach of a climax for women. Feminine delegates, seconders and enthusiasts--taking pOxSsession of the platform; joining and leading in the wild, parading, dancing, howling demonstrations; stilling · the throng with, formal speeches--these had given more than their proportionate share to the day's activities? Tine preliminary Jockeying in which they couldn't lead was done, and the women on the floor seemed to realize this was their day. They made the mast of it. In a box directly across from the speakers, Anna Roosevelt Ball followed her father's progress with so much rooting she actually lost her voiae. With tills blonde, vivacious leading contestant's daughter sat her sister-in-law, Mrs. James Roosevelt. They glowed with confidence. 1 "Of course, he'll get it," Anna caJled out, "what ballot it'll be I don't komv. Bivt I hope it's soon." Later, when an Iowa Roosevelt- pledged delegate rose and seconded Alfred E. Smith, however, she gaaed .over fine carpefc of human heads with a very sober visage. "What a ··-·'peculiar' speech!" she exclaimed, -putting down and forgetting nter leononade. Smiths Look On The moment was one- triumph in a box on the same side of the stadium--from which the Smiths looked 'on. Emily Smith Warner exulted: "There! And 'there'll .be more of such; I believe, tonight." - Her mother looked on in evident suspe/nse. ' ' Between, the mother and daughter sat Mrs. Daniel Mooney, wife of their man's long-time friend. They were joined later by Mrs. Charles Dana Gibson, of New York, reiterating "hewgoing;over way over." Between Roosevelt and Smith groups the Traylors watched--Mrs. Traylor, a pa.trician dai'k: beauty, perefotly ga/rbed in pink and brown, her sub-deb daughter,-blonde and 17, and Meivin Traylor, Jr., 16. It was, Mi's- Traylor said, "a great honor for Mr. Traylor to be mentioned." "They promised, me they'd omit this"--she gestured to the strutting Traylorites, "but at that it's nice to know we have so marry friends." " It was then-Mrs.\Traylor,. asked if she had a second choice, swiftly responded, "personally I'd like very much to see. Baker nominated." At the rim of the noise-making throng sat Mrs. James A. Reed of Missouri, white-haired, gracious and calm. She received a call from Genevieve Clark Thomson, who saw her own fattier, Champ Clark/ lose the nomination under the two-thirds rule in 1912. The rangy Oklahoma candidate himself didn't know -whether Mrs- Murray was there. She stayed out of the fray, though she had attended all previous sessions, making picturesque comment.

He said a car occupied, by two men stopped near the bam this morning. One went into the barn and carried out several sets of harness, throwing them over a fence on the other side of which the car had been parked.
