SPEAKER JOE CANNON DID II «Mi:\DME\TS TO BILL MADE BY JOSEPH a. AND rOMMITTEE. When National Commitlee Meets the Snhject of .Selection of Delegates Will Be Discussed. Wflsliingtou, .Nov. 2.—Dispatches from Springfield. 111., announcing the passage of the primary election Uiil through the .senate with the amendments proposed by Joseph O. Cannon, candidate for tlie republican presidential noiuiiijiiioii, briefly relates an im- |K)ri:iiit ile .vlopnieiit in national poll- lies. The effeei on ihe candidacy of Mr. Cannon is of small ronsequence eompareil to the deeper national plot involved. U'hai is known .•i.<< the Oglesby di- reet primary hill made provisions as far reacliing as those already in oper- aliofi ill WJseousiii. I'lider this bill, if it had been enacted into law a« In- irodiieed, even delegates to national conventions would have been chosen by direct jiirmaries the satiie as in Wis- eon.^iii. Speaker Cannon was afraid to eiiinist his cbaiiees a general primary, in which all repiililieans in 111- iiioi.-* would have V I IIM I. Of course, be will lie in a position to eonirol the coiiveiiiioiis III eoncrevtsional districts and the eiuivenlion will elect delegates at larse. Tiie National Committee Threatened. Hut the greater problem was one which touches the power of the republican national committee. If Illinois and other states had followed the example of Wisconsin and adopted a gen eral primary which would have made the people supreme in the Helection of delegates to national conventions there would have been small chance for manipulation and the republican national committee would have been a body of .small consequenct. Its power would h .ave been limited to calling conventions and Indicating the cities in. which, the}' would' l>e held. But ihe republican national committees are far more powerful in the affairs of iliai party than is the democratic national eommiiien hi the democratic party. -Ml contests primarily are sub milted to tlie republican national eommiilee and its doci :<iiii'.!? iu many instances have deterinirnil the presidential nomination. But of still greater iuiportauce was the probability that if slates, in the management of their own politics, acquired the hal )il of selecling their delegates to national convention in party primaries they would in a short time consider it logical to scleei national committeemen by primaries. The national committee was unwilling to change its methods at the request of Wisconsin, which is dominated by Sen aior LaFollette. but it would have been compelled to do so had Illinois not been sidetracked. A majority of the national committeemen who have been heard from have gone on record as opiKwing any change which would recognize dele.gafes at large chosen by direct primaries iu the wording of tlie ne.xi call. This argument was advanced by Mr. Cannon in Springfield. The speaker and pre-iideiitial candidate said that the national commliiee was supreme in all matters that pertained to the was $40.0itO in excess of the day be- m > - •.—- • , - „, „„, •_ ... .. „f national convent on. and it was not in fore.

Nov. 2.—It. can now be stated on pretty reliable authority that .las. A. Bradley, of Sedan, will be a candidal." for the Bepublican nomination for Governor next year. Bradley has not made formal announcement of his candidacy but tJio indications are that he will make such an announcement about the time of (he meeting of tli.^ siate central committee which is Iwiked for in December. The entry of Bradley, who is something of a dark horse In the race, brings Ihe li.st of probable candidates up to ihr e. the others being Grant Ilornadv. of Ft. Seotr. and C. L. Dav Idson. of Wichita. Bradley's announce ment will probably stop tlio boom for A. C. Silch of Independence, both be- Inp Third district men.

J. V. Dolley enjoined a small boom but it lasted only a f.^w davs. Senator W. II. Haskell lias also been boomed freqiienrly but the friends of Ha.skell have not made much headway. During the last weak there has been rather a cessation, of direct pri- ni.orj- talk in political circles. "The state committee b.is been pretty thor oi'.ghly canvassed by both sides and it Is gen.-'rally apparent that there will not be a primary unle.=5s a special session of the legi.slatiire should be cjilied anrl a primary law enacted. The sne<'ia! session quostliin rvsts tlitir.-l.v with Governor Ho<-li and as He has been in Washington for near*S- two weeks there have been no special .session developments.

'The exi.sting financial situation," Mr. Scott said, "ought not to be either surprising or alarming.

Out of the twenty five Kan.sas banks cafrjlpff reserve deposits with the Bankers Reserve Tru.st company of Kansaj* City, which suspended early In the week, only three are in serious trouble. Threw of thesa hanks have suspended but. Commis.sioner Royce has declined to make their names public for the reason that he expects to maki; arrangements which will save them." In any ev.^nr, he Is confident that there is no probability that the depositors in either of the three banks will suffer loss. Mr. Bo.vce returned from Kansas City, where he has been conferrinu with 111' stockholders la the suspended trust company regarding arrangements for the relief of the Kan.s.ia banks I hat are carrying reserve ac- comiis with the suspended- company. He went back to Kansas City yesterday afternoon for further conference with the receit'cr who ha.<i just been appointed. He Is very hope/iil regarding the situation. Other Kan-sa."; banks seem to be getting along nicely, condltJot|.'? con.'sld- ered. "The patrons of Kansas banks are keeping their hsads." said Mr. Royce. yesterday, "and that is making thing.<? easy^in the hanking business. I look for a his improvement within a week, but the improvement will be gradual." Conditions locaUy. are much, better than they have been at any other time this week. While no announcement ha.'! been made bv the' Topeka banks that the limiti for ca.sh payments hav.a been raised numerous ens- tomers have been notified that they can secure any rea.wnable amount of jiirreney..
