.Inrkejlnn" Ih Alleged.
I lie bill wtncii is now in progress-
of evolution in subcommittee is the
result of a frame-up in high official
circles which, it. is declared, was made
several weeks ago. The jockeying
with the Oglesby bill was entirely for
ettect, to demonstrate, if possible, to
the public, that there was no hope of
drafting and putting through any di-
lect primary bill.
When the conference committee, by
a series ot backing and filling, wfricn
had been prearranged to the last de-
lil, had exhausted the motions that
might be made to the Oglesby bill the
basis of action. Representative Shan-
mil called up the delegate primaiy
bill which he had introduced the day

The members are mostly republicans,
and they number 43, but they rely on
the minority for aid and comfort.
Their program is to defeat the plan of
ho reactionaries led by Shanahan and
Berry and insist upon a direct plural
ity bill. To that end the Pattison bill
was recalled to second reading antl
amended late yesterday afternoon, and
then advanced to third reading. An
effort will be made to substitute it for
the conference bill when the measure
shall be presented next Tuesday.
With the democrats voting solidly

Springfield, 111., Jan. 17 There was

the members refused to substitute the
