READING OF PLATFORM I
Many Indications Point to Col
lapse of Efforts to Amal
Chicago, July 14. Senator La- )
' Follette does not der m himself avail
as candidate" for the new party
presidential nominee He sent word H
j to tho convention that he did not want
; the nomination.
Immediately after Chairman Walker
had announced LnFollctte's decision H
not to accept a nomination. Lester
Harlow, leader of the World War Vet. H
erana demanded that DaFollette be H
: drafted despite his wishes. H
Barlow charged that the convention
was "boss ridden by a secret, intriguing
clique" and that its leaders were con- SB
ceallhg LaFollette's platform for fear
the convention would adopt it. His
I appeal started an uproar and de:e- H
gates demanded the platform be reau. H
PARADE IS STAGED.
Some one swung a large photograph
of the Wisconsin senator before tho
convention and draped it in an Amen-
Hag The Non-Partisan leaguers H
; from the Dakotas staged a parade
, with the state standards and stai'i H
after state fell into line. Pandemou-
urn reigned for thirty minutes and

i that platform" and "let's adopt It."
J. A. H. Hopkins and Robert M.
Buck, of the platform committee
! which Harlow had armsed Of coo- IBss!
ceallng the LaJfollette draft, shoved a jjjH
copy Into the speaker's hand and told
i htm to read it when the demonsira-

Senator Robert M. LaFollette of
! Wisconsin, was still being represented J
in platform conferences . H
At 1145 a. m. the platform con- J
I ference ordered the typing of a third jJ
J version of a fusion party platform, and H
' sent word lo the convention that It H
would report at two p. m. The con- H
vention adjourned until that time. H
SIGNS Ol BREAKUP.
The first intimation of tho break
Ing up of the new party movemen'
followed last night's session when the J
Single Taxers withdrew, adopted their
I one plank platform and nominated H
their own presidential candidate. For H
I president they chose Robert MacCaul- H
j ley. of Philadelphia and for vice-
slib nt they sH.-eted K C. B.iinum,
I of Cleveland. They quit the new 1
parts, .lernme C. Reis. a Single Tax
leader aald, because it was not only
j apparent they could not obtain their B
platform d. -sires and a candidate com- pH
mitted to them but also because they 1
l "could not stand the Socialistic ideas
I of the dominant 1-abor group.
TUMULTUOl s SCENES.
The birth of the new party yester
d.iv alter five days of conferences, was H
I attended by tumultuous scenes involv- jH
in- Ji ilousii ind group antagonisms.
. In the very beginning, the Labor party
I organization took control and steered
the course until consideration of the
platform resolutions vvus begun. Sev -era!
planks hail been read and ap
proved when Forty -eighters began
strenuous objections to their relega-
tion lo the background.
There followed quickly demands for
ol ihe proe. dure by which the
resolutions were being passed. In an
effort lo placate the angry delegates.
I the Labor leaders surrendered the
. h itrmanship to Parley P. Chrlstenseo. WW
of Utah, who presided over the origi- iH
nal 4S convention.
The concession failed utterly, how- iilSjJ
ever, to iron out the widely divergent iil
v iews on platform planks. As a re
r.tilt. the fusion movement was again SJH
placed In practically the same posl- WMm
tion In Which it had been during mora
than fifty hours of backing and pull- 1
ing in conference commltiec-s.
