with the wav In which her rrw was fiiht-

At the end of the first half mile the sis

In his power to save the party from an Im
putation of lobby control. Further than
that he would not say, remarking that his
friends could speak better concerning the
exact steps which have been taken In that
Deciding: on a Man.
During the past few days a number of
conferences have been held in different
parts of the city by the members of the
anti-Kerens and what might be termed the
"antlagreement" faction. It has generally
been supposed that Mr. Nagel would bo
the choice of the St. Louis Republican Club
to head the opposition to Kerens.
Friday evening Mr. Nagel told his friends
that ho personally did not care to make the
race, as he thought other material might be
more available. The name of Judge G. A.
Flnkelnburg was then taken up. Mr. Nagel
urged his selection by the St. Louis con
tingent. However, Judge Flnkelnburg doubt
ed his physical strength to make a cam
paign against er-Governor W. J. Stone, and
In turn approved of Mr. Nagel's nomina
tion. This step was finally agreed upon.
Mr. Nagel Is said to have promised h!9
friends to do all In his power to secure ac
tion by the convention, saying at the samo
time that he personally was not anxious
for the honor, and If the convention sho-ild
select any other man If any action at all
were taken he would be more than satis
fied, the only condition being that the man
be entirely free from lobby Influences.
Friends of Mr. Nagel claim that they
will take US votes out of St Louts without
counting upon any of the defeated delega
tions In the primaries being seated by the
Credentials Committee of the convention.
If the six wards which were carried by the
Kerens crowd last Thursday aro turned
over to them after the contests are decided,
the National Committeeman will havo
small opportunity to take much voting
strength out of this city.
It la also argued by the friends of the
St. Louis Republican Club that Colonel
Kerens has not a man whom he can con
trol on the delegation from his own ward,
while bis chief lieutenant. Charles H.
Smith, was snowed under In the Twenty
fifth. John B. Owen Is the only Kerens leader
from this city whose seat is not contested
in the State Convention There is a proba
bility that Nathan Prank, who heads the
contested Twenty-second Ward delegation,
will not be allow ed to take his seat.
Of course, the fight hinges upon the Cre
dentials Committee of the State Conven
tion. If the antl-Kerens faction controls that
committee, it is leasonably certain that
some of the National Committeeman's
friends will be thrown out.
Congressmen on Hand.
Congressmen Bartholdt and Joy will both

tended the confererce yesterday afternoon

Congressman Joy arrived In the city last
evening direct from Washington. He said
that he simply came out to see the con
vention and to attend his niece's wedding
In Jacksonville. Ill, next Thursday. He
Is not a delegate to the convention, but
will probably figure In the doings.
"'On general principles," he said, "T am
opposed to the nomination of a Senator
by the convention of a minority party.
However, there are conditions which may
make it advisable to take action. I am not
fully informed regarding conditions here in
Missouri, so cannot say what I think

"Oh, es, I haVe several planks which I

comes nearer representing the Prident In
Missouri than any other man. Iris hinted
that Congressman Barthoidt will &ay as
