Philadelphia's chance of winning the

Convention to thh city In 1310 Is better
today than at any time since tho cam

This assertion vas mado by N, B.

of Commcrco of this city, and Is based
upon a telephone communication from a
member of ho Philadelphia Convention
Commlttco who dined last night with a
member of tho Republican National Com

According to the statement, the mem
ber of tho National Committee said that
tho only thing needed to clinch tho con

co-operation on tho part of citizens of
this city to give momentum to the move
ment, which has thus far been supported
mainly by a comparatively small body of
farsightcd business men.
"All wo need now Is to pull together,"
Mr. Kelly said today. "We have the
