! Many Conferences in the Interest ol
Secretary Taft' Being Held in
A Washington dispatch says thai
Republican leaders in congress an
working earnestly on a plan to pre
vent any break at the Chicago convention
that might disrupt party harmony
and endanger defeat at the polk
in November. Conferences have beer
hekr at bot'h ends of the capito
among such men as Senators Aldrieh
Hale, Allison and Crane, and Repres
entatives Payne and SSherman, oJ
New York; Tawney, of Minnesota
Jenkins, of Wisconsin, and Smith, ol
Iowa. They have been directed to on*
end?a nomination on the first ballot
by which they mean Wm. II. Taft
While no definite result has beer
reached, they believe their efforts wil
be .successful. Most of the men figuring
promptly in this movement wen
numbered against Taft early in tin
campaign, but party policy and th(
necessity for harmony, which have
been manifest in Republican rank?
since the disastrous results of tin
Blainc-Conklin fued, has awakened j
demand that personal desires bo subordinated
lo the will of the majority
That the efforts of the group of leaders
back of the harmony movement
have not. been barren of results is indicated
by the fact that to a nnmbei
of conferences have been invited sucti
men as Senators Ileminway, Penrose
Cullom, Hopkins and Depc.w, and Rep
resent at ivos Parsons and Yreeland, ot
New York; Boutell and Mann, of T1H
nois; Burke and Dal/.ell, of Pcnnsvlvan
in: Watson and I^audis, of Indiana.
and others who are backing the
candidacies of Vice-President Fairbanks,
Speaker .Cannon, Senatoi
Knox or Governor Hughes.
No attempt, is made to disguise th:
fact that the real impetus to such .1
concerted movement in the interest
of Secretary Taft is the refusal oj
the Roosevelt 'sentiment to be snuff
ed out and the danger of such sentiment
spreading to an extent that
might be difficult of control at Chicago.
At t?he same lime if ;s said tlie
movement is not hostile to President
Roosevelt, who admittedly occupies
the position of command in the forces
'He has made it perfectly plain that
nothing can come of the renewed call?
for his renomination which have beer
made in Texas, Utah and California
and lie is prepared to reject any proffer
of support 110 matter how extended.
The uttermost limit of endeavor ot
the Republican leaders who are striving
to harmonize party difTieulties is
to eliminate all candidates for the
nomination except Secretary Taft, but
it is not anticipated that all of the
candidates readily agree to this proposition.
Supporters of Senator Kims
are particularly opposed to the plan,
and one of the other candidates is
holding out strongly that there is nc
immediate demand for agreement
At the same time there are leaders it
Illinois, Indiana, Pnnsyivania and
New Youk who are parlies to the
movement with the knowledge of the
favorite son candidates of those States.
The selection of Secretary Tal't a.*
the beneficiary of the harmony farlion
is made because of the fact that
he is (he milv candidate who has sufficient
instructed votes to promise an
early nomination. The argument of
? '% 1 'he harmony faction is that if Taft
? should fail to secure the nomination
cy- of the ballot tlie allies were able t?i
hold out against him it would mean a
| contest of many ballots. These lcadk
? 'ers have little doubt that in such a
contingency the Roosevelt third term
||y sentiment would threaten a stampede,
kgB>' and though they have little doubt that
Hgft the president would not hesitate <0
WF squelch any proposition looking to
^ his renomination, the effect of such
V stampede can only be surmised. The
f "possible dire results upon the campaign
for tiie election of the candidate,
whoever he may be, is one of
the arguments used to draw the socnilled
allies into the harmony programme.
Republican leaders concede that
their majority in the house is likely
to be materially reduced at this fall
election, and they fear that unless all
factions are brought together before
Ifche idhicago convention they might
lose their majority altogether. One
of the side plans being discussed favorably
is the renomination of Mr.
Fairbanks as vice president 011 the
ticket with Secretary Taft which they
assert would remove Indiana from the
doubtful column and make it safely
Republican. It is said also that with
the Republican forces solidly aligned
Taft could easily carry Illinois and
the harmonizers are willing tr, concede
Cannon's reelection as speaker
a Republican house.
" I Here is a movement on to bring
about the renomination of ]M'rv lushes
- /' '
as governor of New York, and an ei
fort to bring Secretary Taft and Sen
f ator Foraker together, which it i
thought would make Ohio safe.
