THE WASHINGTON TDEE3. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1913.
MRS. STORY COMING
TO SEE FOLLOWERS
Friends Claim She Has Many
Votes Pledged as Candidate
for President General.
Mrs. William Cummins Story, or Xew
York, will be la Washington for two or
three days, beginning Tuesday, and will
hold conferences here with District sup
porters of her candldacj for the presi
dency general of the Daughters of the
American Revolution. Mrs. Story's
t JsEt, here is said to be more or less
casual, because she Is stopping oft only
on her way to Chicago, but her friends
ay that one reason for the visit Is to
encourage her followers here iith a
personal account of the large number
or votes pledged her.
"Mrs. John Miller Horton, rival candl
liate, has been in Washington most of
the winter and has been a prominent
figure at many social affairs, together
-with Mrs. Matthew Scott, president
Story Followers Skeptical.
Mrs. Scott is professedly neutral In
the present contest, but her close social
association with Mrs. Horton causes
the Story adherents to take this declar
ation of neutrality with several grains
Mrs. Horton was hostess at a brilliant
reception at the New WiUard yesterday
afternoon, at which 1200 women were
present, many of them District daugh
ters. Mrs. Scott received with her, as
did Mrs. Mary Lockwood, one of the
District chapter regents and a great
power in the D. A. R. Mrs. Lockwood
has always 'been a supporter, of Mrs,
Story, and some concern was expressed
by the Story supporters when they read
that Mrs, Lockwood was assisting Mrs.
Horton. It is denied, however; that
this has any "political" significance.
Has Many, Votss Pledged.
The supporters of Mrs. Story are
more optimistic regarding the 'result of
the vole to come than are the adher
ents of Mrs. Horton. Mrs. Story has
a" large number of votes pledged. It Is
claimed. But twice bad political man
agement by some of her aides, together
with charges -circulated, it is openly as
serted, by adversaries of the past, have
caused her defeat, with the result that
conservatives are doing no predicting.
On the face of things, however. Mrs.
Story has a long lead at the present
invitations have been issued by Mrs.
Scott, president general of the D. A. R.,
for the annual partiotic evening Feb
iiiary 22. at Continental Memorial Hall.
Mrs. Horton will recetve "with. Mrs.
Scott, on Ibis-occasioni whlchTpromises
to be a brilliant event.
