Elaborate Briefs Filed.
The division between "progressives"
and "reactionaries" in the committee
will be emphasized in the Tennessee
contest, in which R. E. U. Mountcastlo
and John J. Vertrees, both claim to bo
the member of the committee.
elaborate briefs have been filed by
both sides.' It Is admitted that Mr.
Hountcastle was regularly elected a
member at the Denver convention of
1S08. The Vertrees brief alleges that
Mountcastle vacated that office by rea
son of bis support of B. W. Hooper,
"Republican, for governor. In 1910.
The whole quarrel arises out of the
long; enmity between the liberal and
tory factions of the party in Tennes
see, and directly out of the Carmack
'Patterson factionalism as accentuated
by the assassination of former Senator
Hountcastle Is allied with the Car
mack faction, Vertrees with the Pat
terson following, although at the first
neither was so aligned.
After Governor Patterson had par
toned Colonel, Cooper, who was convict
ed of murdering Carmack, a large part
of the Democratic forces in the State
revolted. They fused with the Repub
licans and Indorsed Hooper. Patterson,
who had been renominated, withdrew,
and his faction named Senator Taylor.
Hooper was elected.
Mountcastle was permanent chairman
of the convention that Indorsed Hooper.
,W. O. Vertrees, brother of the claim
ant for the national committeeman's
place, and present chairman of tho
State commlttoc representing the Pat
terson faction, was at that time chair
man of the anti-Patterson committee,
and It was be who called the conven
tion that indorsed Hooper, and it was
lie who eliminated all other Republican
candidates, and dictated the nomina
tion of Hooper by the Republican con
vention. The Mountcastle brief contends that
the support Hooper involved no ais
Jdyalty to Democratic principles and
the platform of progressive Demo
cratic principles adopted by the con
vention, over which Mountcastle pre
alded is presented In support of this
On the other hand, it Is charged by
the Mountcastle faction that Vertrees
is not loyal to the national Demo
cratic position and in support of this
allegation, the platform adopted by
the convention that nominated Sen
ator Taylor for governor is flled. The
tariff plank In this platform, said to
have been written or approved by
John J. Vertrees, declares for inci
dental protection and utterly fails to
couple the word "only"-with Its dec
laration for a "tariff for revenue."
80 far as national politics Is con
cerned the Issue between Mount
castle and Vertrees la that of the
progressives veraus the standpatters.
Vertrees' defense of the Standard OH
In the Tennessee ouster case and his
employment as counsel for Balllnger
in the Congressional Investigation, as
well (ib his long antagonism to Bryan,
are- things that the Mountcastlo sup
porters say sufficiently fix hs status.
Mountcastle, on the other hand, is
rated as a progressive Democrat of
the Bryan order.
The chief Wilson boomer and "ori
ginal Wilson man," today establish

was a rrrost optimistic Individual

"Governor Wilson will reach Wash
ington at S o'clock Monday," said
Mr.' McCombs, who Is a young New
York lawyer. "The Wilson head
quarters in New York have been re

from all over the country. Of course.
It Is more or less guess work at this
stage, but according to the reports
we are receiving Wilson stands an

servatlve estimates will start as the

Mr. McCombs says the right kind
of "business" will support Wilson.
There are two kinds of "business,"
according to the practical manager
of tho Wilson campaign business
that means the little Inside clique
In Wall Street, and business which
represents tho substantial commer
cial Interests, which are, just as In
terested in public affairs as the most
powerful kind of finance. According
to Mr. McCombs, Governor Wilson
is drawing strength from all classes,
and his star Is in the ascendant.
Fight Over Taggart.
'Mr. McCombs said lo did not desire
1 to express publicly any preferences as
to the convention city. From a hurried
view, ho thinks Baltimore and Chicago

Gossip about hotels, to the effect that
Taggare, of Indiana, would bo made
chairman of the committee on arrange
ments, was at once declared to mean a
fight, for the progressives will fight the
selection of the Indiana "boss."
At heart, Taggart Is said to bo a
supporter of Harmon, and this will
bring down upon his head the com
bined opposition of the Wilson, Clark,
Bryan and Underwood factions In the
committee. The row will be a lively
one and may exceed In bitterness tho
squabble that attended tho selection
of Harry S. New as the chairman of
the Republican committee on arrango-'
In the event of Taggart's selection,
Indiana will stand in the powerful po
sition of having cornered the chairman

For awhile Taggart may minister oxy
gen to the Marshall boomlet, but,, the
sealous guardians of other booms are
firmly convinced that at the opportune
moment the Indiana leader will --follow
the flag of Harmon. Besides, the pro
gressive wing of the party had about
as soon think of selecting somebody
from the Tammany wigwam as Mr.
Carter Harrison, it is understood, will
make the principal argument in favor
of Chicago. St. LouIb opened head
quarters today, and Baltimore has been
at work for twenty-four hours or more.
St. Louis is alsb putting up a' hard
fight, and Denver is urging Democracy
to repeat Its performance of four years
ago, when the convention met In the
shadow of the Rockies.
Similarity of Fights.1
The parallels between the troubles of
the Republican committees, at Its recent
session, and those of the Democrats now
gathering, are interesting. Tho Repub
licans talked a good deal about chang
ing the plan of representation, so that
tho South should be pared down to a
strength somewhat proportionate to Its
Importance in the party. The national
committee was not authorized to do
anything about It, but It Is believed the
convention this year will finally adopt
u resolution favoring this plan.
The Democrats have a similar fight, on
the two-thirds rule. Many party men
consider that the nominations ought to
be made by a simple majority. The
progressives frankly declare that their
one real danger lies in theytwo-thlrds
rule. They say they will easily be In
control of a majority, and that some
distinctly progressive candidate would
be certain to win but for the two-thirds
ruler-whlch opens wide the door to
Jockeying, combination and manipula
tion. The national committee has no
authority to revoke the long-standing
rule, but thero is increasing possibility
of a hard fight on it in the convention.
Advqcates in primary expressions were
confident today that tho call -will leave

It was learned today that Joseph J.
Sinnott, doorkeeper of the House of
Representatives, will be a candidate for
sergeant-at-arms of the convention. He
will have a considerable Initial backing
of members and Senators who aro mem
bers of the national committee.
The disposition , of committeemen to
day Is to hold the sessions, which be
Kln at noon Monday, behind closed
doors. The Republican committee last
month held wide-open sessions; nut the
Democrats have an embarrassing quan
tity of soiled linen for laundering, and
it is thought best results will be attain
ed by having the sessions executive, so
that all may feel free to talk them
selves out and 'get the discomfort of

test of strength on this proposal.
