If t'o candidate gets a majority, If

rardidate there Is no binding obligation
on an of the delegates. In other words,
t .. thfii go to the convention tinln
fniiteii. However, the Wood managers,
lin hope to get at least a plurality, ure
in taring that this would Impose a moral
cMigHllon on the delegates.
(Irmuilmtloii for Walion,

poll that a majority of the organization
l lo- ,il to Senator Watson, the question
uri'n as to whether tho delegation, If
pi't legally instructed, would not follow
hi lead In the convention. He has not
tmlicated his preference, but his friends
m that probably he would be for
Harding or Lowden.
The thirty delegates to go to Chicago
rill be elected at a State convention
to be held on May 12, delegates to which
tie i hosen In the primaries eight days
1 ;ni Bdward I. Edwards of New Jer
fp was Injected Into the Democratic
j.i . forentlal primary by his "wet" friends
on tin' last day for filing petitions. This
ro,e made It necessary for Vicc-Pre.M-irnt
Marshall's friends to file his peti
tions, otherwise the delegation from his
) oine State would have been instructed
npainst him by default. A petition that
t.ad been prepared for William G. Mc
vdoo could not be retrieved In time for
filing because It was locked up In a safe.
The Marshall and the McAdoo leaders
ad made a gentleman's agreement not
to enter the primary.
The Republican leaders, replying to
the question asked In tho poll blanks,
reported the same condition of confusion
nd uncertainty In Uie Democratic party
In Indiana as has been indicated In other
States. Straight "Americanism" was
itated to bo the 1920 Issue by a major
ri of the county chairmen. Others
perincally referred to the League of
Nations and added that we wanted no
in Indiana, as In other States, the Re,
iMihllcan county chairmen were asked to
Indicate the first choice and the second
f noire of their counties for the Presiden

n trifle more than fifty per cent, of the
flist choices were for Watson. Wood
as next with forty per cent roughly.
I.mvilrn High on Second.
While Lowden. the only other candi
date rotentlal or otherwise, for whom a

i ioires. It was "first or nothing" with

votes Harding polled seventeen per

approximately nine per cent. each. One

The inferential primary fight is mak
ing a great stir In Indiana, according to
repoiln fruin special correspondents of
The SiJn and Nkw York HKnAt.n. No
party organisation has declared for any
candldale. Harry 0. Hogan, tho Wood
manager, and Vernon W. Van Fleet, the
Harding manager, are both members of
tho Stato committee. James S. Baldwin
of Decatur, III,, has taken charge of the
Lowdon fight In Indiana. Zoll X, Swain

From surfaco Indications the Wood
battalions are putting up the best fight.
They have developed a good organization
and nre getting much publicity. Mana

selves as satisfied, but are not making
public the details of their campaign.
Wood has developed much popularity
among tho farmers, It Is reported,

So far none of the candidates has en
tered tho light In person, nor have any
national figures from other States taken

scheduled to be In Indianapolis to-day

the validity of the petitions placing In

It Is alleged by William M. Bennett,
local manager for United State Senator
Hiram W. Johnson, who has filed pro
tests against the petitions, that they do
not comply with the law. If the Boatd
of Elections falls to throw the petitions
out Mr. Rennet! says he will appeal to
Dr. Butler and Mr. Hllles. who are

The point raised In the petitions in the

that each was filed tn sections, not any

a stated period say one year or eigh

they will agree to do 100 per cent. work.
I haven't the slightest doubt that
the labor men will do everything to re

work with a will. Their loyalty In a
good cause Is never found wanting.
