I'JU ' -- Twenty hours before the convention

IU unled affair and as the bewildered
JH delegates mill around the hotel lob-
bies bewailing the absence of leader-
Ishlp, the men who were the real lead
ers in the years gone by find a grim
satisfaction in referring to the charges
, of bosstsm which were so freely hurled
at them at former conventions. They
aro asking delegates if it i3 not better

Such overnight and early morning (
conferences as were held, were of the

The so-called leaders are still ex

The best informed observers.
however, see evidence that this is
merely a screen to hido the fact that

4 leaders. The passing of the old hne
I party whips, it becomes more ar.d 1
more evident, has brought up. an en
Jjjrjfcj. tlroly new crop of so-called leaders, '
y many of 'Whom do" not Itnow another ,
and that is one of the things which1
explains the lack of cohesive action
in getting down to definite conclu
sions. Xobody Has Knougli.
No campaign manager has been able
to strengthen his lines enough to go

Each one of them is waiting for tl:e
first ballot lo demonstrate how sn 1
are the assurances he hns received
from the tin Instructed delegates.
All the managers look for the first
ballot to settle the outlook consider
ably for the big three Johnson, Lovv
den and Wood. They feel that the
candidate who gets the highest num
I ber will have a potential advantage!
and the candidate who-stands at the :
bottom of the list will be decidedly on i
tho defensive. The candidate who can i
' make a gain on the second ballot, tho!
i managers feel, will provide his mana- i
ger with very valuable ammunition in '
