ROOSEVELT IN CONFER?
All-Day Meeting Held to Find a
Way to Beat Taft.
WILL CALL CONVENTION!
May Run Prendergast for Gov?

Behind locked doors a baker's dosen
Waders of the new third party, the so
called Progressive party, held a conferenes
at the Hotel Manhattan for many hours
yesterday. All present doffed their coats
and vests and roll ;d up their shirt sleeves.
The proceedings began at 10 o'clock In the
morning and lasted until 8 o'clock la?t
night, with adjournments for luncheon and
Senator Joseph If. Dixon presided. Other?
who attended were Timothy L. Woodruff,
of Brooklyn; Ormsby McHarg, of New
York; William Halpln. of New York;
Lucius W. Llttauer, of Gloversvllle; Amos
Pirichot, Controller William A. Prender
gast. ex-Senator Albert J. Reverldge, of
Indiana: h>ank A. Munsey, freorge B. Cor
telyou, Lawrence V. Abbott, president of
the "Outlook," and George W. Perkins.
Several times during the day, the wires
between Room No. WG, where the secret
conference was held, and Colonel Roose?
velt's home, at Sagamore Hill, were kept
busy, for It was thought advisable to sub?
mit all questions under debate to the
Big Boss at Oyster Bay for final determina?
livery possible effort was made to pre?
vent the news that a secret meeting was
In progress from reaching the reporters.
When several newspapermen knocked on
the door of Room No. ?$0> It wa? opened
by Senator Dixon, who flushed redder than
the Stripes In his shirt and stammered that
he had nothing to say.
But earlier In the day two members of
the secret conference Informed the news?
papermen what had taken place at tho
sect et meeting while they were there. At
that time these men did not know that
Senator Dixon and his associate? had de?
termined on withholding from the public
the doings of the bosses gathered there.
"The main object of the meeting," said
one of these men, "was to determine upon
the best way of beating Taft. After much
discussion It wa? agreed not to nominate
any ITesldentlal electors In such states as
Pennsylvania, Maryland, Nebraska. Ore?
gon. California, North Carolina, Illinois,
Kansas, New Jersey, Otilo, West Virginia
?nd the two Dakotas, ?-.here we know the
electors chosen by Republican conventlins
will cast their votes In the Electoral Col?
lege for Mr. Roosevelt."
The next proposition taken up was Boas
Fl.nn's suggestion not to put up any state
tickets %ji su. h states as those named
above, as the main object of the Roose?
velt men was to beat President Taft, and
to put up state tickets everywhere would
Involve a considerable outlay of money.
"Wiille we have a fairly large promise of
money," he went on, 'and while our finan?
cial reliance Is placed largely upon such
tii'-n ?s Charles B. Crane, Amos and Glfford
Pin.-hot. Alexander H. Revell and Frank A.
Munsey? we dc not think It advisable to
put up ?t?te tickets everywhere, as It will
cost a lon-lderable sum to build up the new
party in itself, let alone the country -wide
light we will make against Tait.
"We will or.lv put up tickets In the states
controlled by the reactionaries Yoj can
Imagine what this flght Is going to cost us
whan you know that the primaries cost u?
almost $3.0OO,a00 "
Controller Prendergaat. whr has been ap?
pointed leader of the New York Roos-velt
party, because the placing of "little Tim"
Woodruff would savor too much of bosslsm,
win issue a call next week for h state con
*.-ntion. which will bo held probably In this
city. Controller Prendergaat may be named
Presidential deiega'es will also be chosen.
A full state ticket will also be named.
T.'io se.-ret enference adjourned at S
o'clock last night to meet again to-day.. It
Is not probable that to-day's conference
will be held at the Manhattan Hotel.

Twenty-five Gangsters Leave
Two Men Seriously Injured.
George Pollock, a driver, twenty-two
year? old, of No. 22 East 114th ?treet. was
shot through the back of the head, and his
friend, Morris Stromberi*-. a fruit dealet.
eighteen years old. of No. 69 Ka?t 114th
street, was wounded In the stomach l??t
night when twenty-live rowdies attack-d
a gathering of Jewish people In front of
Pollocks home. Police reserves searched
the neighborhood for the members of the
?,-ang. but to no avail.
The group on the sidewalk was enjoying
the open air. when a butter and egg wagon,
with three men on the seat, came careening
along on the wrong side of the street.
Judging that th?- men were Intoxicated
Pollock shouted a word of remonstrane*e
to them. Immediately the wagon stopped
and the three men approached and started
a fight, in which they were worsted.
Vowing Sengen BCe, the trio went aw a-.,
and half an hour later twenty-tlv.- men,
armed with clubs and revolvers, appeared
and attacked Pollock and ItTOanberg. k\ v
aral -hots were tired, the nois" summoning
Patrolman George Schlesslnger. at the
sight of whom the row-dies fled.
Reserves from the East 104th street sta?
tion, under command of Lieutenant Lafsky,
found no trace of the gangsters. They
learned, however, that the name on the
wagon was LudwlB. from a shop In !..,-t
116th street. Dr. Hobbs. of Harlem Hos?
pital, said the condition of Stromberg was
serious, and held out no hope for the re?
covery of Pollock. George Smith, of East
117th street, wa? held a? a witness, al?
though he alleged he ran away when th?
shots were fired.

mobile to carry Watson from the stats
line to Qultman, a distance of twenty-live
miles. For fifteen miles he was chased by
members of the mob. A atop at Slay,
after members of the posse had overtaken
him. enabled the officer to telephone to
