If (he assertions of Roosevelt men

No Compromise Expected
It was learned yesterday on good
authority, from both sides of the party,
that there will be no compromise.
This action was considerably talked
of Saturday, but apparently It has
fallen through, as It was rosltively
stated yesterday that there will be
nothing doing in that line. It is said
that the Taft forces would have agreed
to a compromiso on 'h basis of ten
delegates for Rooaevelt and six for
Taft. The Roosevelt men, however,
especially the younger ones, want
the whole delegation, and they say
that the will not lie down to the min
ority if they lose the whole delega
tion. There are a number ot young
republicans in the Roosevelt squad,
and their fighting blood is up.
The Roosetelt men have a card up
their sleeves, but they refuse to dl
xulge Its nature. It was arranged
at a secret meeting held at the office
of one of the Roosevelt faction Sat
urday night. Whatever It la, they are
elated over Its possibilities.
Regarding the proposed decapita
tion of Gardner in Bisbee on May 23,
it is said that the chairman pro tem
has written the state chairman for In
structions. What comfort they will
get from Hubbell is problematical, as
the state chairman is said to be
strongly for TafL
Up to Credential Committee
Any action that is taken by either
side will now bo subject to the revis.
ion of the credentials committee ot
the state convention, for apparently
both sides are In the fight to stay.
It may be believed that Gardner and
the Taft forces will not attend the
Bisbee meeting, as they might claim
with some show of regularity that the
notices sent out by the chairman and
secretary protem are void, no that as
sures the naming of one set of dele
gates at Bowie. The Roosevelt ma
jority, augmented by the alleged de
sertion of six Taft men from the oth
er side, will certainly decapitate
Gardner and Locke if they do not
attend or withdraw from the Bisbee
meeting, and appoint new officers.
They, too, will name delegates. They
say that If the majority of the com
mittee had the power to elect Gar1
ner chairman, they certainly have the
power to recall him, and they propose
to do it.
Taft men make no secret of the
fact that ir the Roosevelt men attend
their meeting or If the Taft men
should decide to come Into the Roose
velt meeting, they will withdraw
again if offered an opportunity, and
with so many young Hotspurs in the
Roosevelt ranks, an opportunity 13
probable. So, It would appear that
the Roosevelt men have designs on
the heads of Gardner and Locke,
whichovcr way the cat Jumps.
From this -angle, it seems assured
