Surprising Figures May Follow
Break in the Progressive
By JUDSON C WELLIVER.
CHICAGO, June 22. In the break-up
that may come when the actual voting
begins tonight, some surprising figures
may be expected. The name of Presi
dent Roosevelt will not be presented to
the convention, and hla delegates may
It illent throughout, but tho Instructed
delegations for him will make tholr
preference plain by their silence. If not
by their votes. The effect will be the
Again, there may be a considerable ac
cession to the strength of Senator Cum
mins, for whom a determined uffort has
been made In the last twenty-four houro
before the critical ballot, In the hope of
pulling the party back together by
naming an undoubted progressive
against whom it would be hard to or
ganize a thlid party movement.
Idaho For Cummins.
Last night the Idaho delegation cau
cused, and followed the meeting by an
announcement that It will vote for
Senator Cummins on the flrst ballot.
Idaho has been supporting the Roosn
Velt forces. Its delegates have not been
pleased at all with tho talk of a pos
sible Bpllt In the party In case Roose
velt should be -obbed of the nomina
tion. Senator Borah has been very out
spoken In his opposition to all talk thut
suggested division. In addition to this,
he is a close friend nnd admirer of
Cummins. Between these two consldei
ations he was able to Induce the Idaho
people to announce that It will give thj
Iowan its vote on the first ballot.
This Idaho announcement contains
potentialities of important developments
before the nomination Is made. The
Idaho people say that the time Is como
for consideration of a third candidate
who, by reason of being a recognized
progressive, could make it the more dif
ficult to secure the encouragement of an
Independent party movement. They bu
lieve that the bitterness between the
Taft and Roosevelt candidacies is such
that the nomination of Taft would pre
cipitate such a movement, but that if
as well known a progressive ns Cum
mins should be put forward It would
make the Independent movement much
more difficult of encouragement. In
other words, they believe that while
an Independent party might be formed
in opposition to the candidacy of Taft,
It would be far more difficult to form
one In antagonism to Cummins.
Taft People In Panic.
But Idaho's declaration for Cummins
opened the way to a complexity of
dickers and palavers. The Taft pcoplo
were thrown Into great excitement.
Idaho has not been their State, and at
flrst blush Its desertion from RooBevelt
to Cummins would seem to weaken
Roosevelt and not affect Taft at all.
The difficulty with this reasoning is
that It does not go under Jhe surface;
and that Is where the managers for
Taft are looking. They knaw that
their own support Is honeycombed with
dissatisfaction and discouragement. It
in i easy to nominate a man fore-
doomed to defeat: conventions, espcclul- I
ly Republican conventions, don't tak
cheerfully to the procedure
Therefore manv Taft delegates have
been for several days hoping that some
thing would turn up that would give
them a chance to nominate a stronger
man than Taft. while avoiding the
danger of a slump to Roosevelt
Shortly after the Idaho announce
ment was given out that Colonel
Roosevelt's name was not to be pre
sented to the convention.' This placed
a very different face on the matter. It
was stated that Senator Kenyon of
Iowa, manager for Cummins had held
a long talk with Colonel Roosevelt and
went away with the Impression tnat
Roosevelt s name would not bo pro
sented, and that the colonel was de
termined on the Independent party plan.
Meet About August i.
It was declared that Roosevelt is pre
pared to go ahead with this movement,
no matter whom the present convention
uy nominate. The favorite plan has
been to keep the Roosevelt delegates In
the convention, to go away from Chi
cago at the close of the convention, and
proceed at once to the work of organiz
ing a new party, with the purpose of
holding an entirely new national con-

tne two gatnenngs entirely separate
an dlndependent of each other would be
less embarrassing to many of his fol
lowers. Expect Fifty Votes.
The third candidate movers declared
that they hoped to get about fifty
votes for Cummins on the first ballot.
This would Include Iowa's ten and Ida
ho's eight, to which must be added
others, said to bo In sight from vari
ous Taft sources, and some from other
Rposevelt delegations. Senator Page or
Vermont, for Instance, who controls the
six Taft delegates In that State, paid a visit
to the Cummins headquarters and dis
cussed the situation with Senator Ken-
on and others, and there was report
that some of the Taft people in Massa
chusetts and Rhode Island were seri
ously In the mind of breaking away and
going to Cummins.
Against all this, the Taft generals
were holding on like grim death, clench

after the news of the Cummins' boom
Inflation reached them, they Insisted
that It was none of their affair. It
merely took some votes away from
Roosevelt, and marked the beginning of
disintegration of his force.
If a soft answer turneth an ay wrath,
W. J. Bryan's hard feeling against the
nomination of Judge Parker for tem
porary chairman at Baltimore will be
minimized by the conciliatory message
sent from Clark headquarters last night
In reply to Mr. Bryan's telegram say
ing ho would be glad to Join with others
In opposing Judge Parker's selection.
Speaker Clark said: "Have consulted
with committee having my Interests in
charge, and agree with them that the
supreme consideration should bo to pre
vent any discord In the convention.
"Friends of mine on the subcommittee
of arrangements have already presented
the name of OUle James to tho sub
committee. I believe that If all Join

organization that the committee will so

This does not meet the offer of Mr.
Bryan to oppose Parker, although It 1b
support for the plan of having the en
tire national committee, rather than a
subcommittee, decide who shall be
placed before the convention as tem
porary chairman. This same national
committee, however, defeated Mr.
Bryan last winter when he attempted
to have Colonel Guffcy, national com
mitteeman from Pennsylvania, elevated
over the transom.
Hadley and Kenyon
Are Favorites Here
Reports from -Chicago that the Taft
managers had about decided to name
Governor IJadley, of Missouri, or Sen
ator Kenyon of Iowa as running mate
with the President, caused little com
ment at the White House today.
It Is known the President some days
ago let It be known he would leave the
selection of a Vlco President to the
convention for decision.
Today It was announced by advisers
close to Mr. Taft that he would have no
objection to having Governor Hadley
as his running mate. It Is pointed out
that the President and the young Mis
souri governor became very intimate
several months ago, when Mr. Taft
toured Missouri. At Sedalla they played
golf together, and were frequently
seen together thereafter.
It Is recalled that while out walking
the President had his arm about Gov
ernor Hadlcy's shoulder.
Hadley Is one of the leading progres
sives of the Republican partv, and Is
the first Republican governor of Mis
souri since the civil war. Coming from
a pivotal State, it is pointed out, ho
would make a strong candidate for tho
Senator Kenyon also Is a strong pro
gressive and several months ago won
' his election to the United States Senate
by a splendid majority, when he de
feated Lafayette Young, acknowledged
reactionary leader of Iowa. Senator
Kenyon was one of the leading foes of
reciprocity when that measure was be
