ing Marshall's proposition that the
convention choose n candidate. Tag
gart is fighting it, but has an
nounced that he will go beforo the
convention for endorsement, If the
plan Is adopted.
Marshall and his forces believe
this will be the opening skirmish. It
has been agreed that the report of
the cominlteo on rules and order of
business shall not bo presented until
Marshall takes charge as temporary
chairman, Instead of being present
ed when State Chairman Stokes Jack
son takes the chair to call 'the con

are Incensed at this change in the
regular order of procedure.
Senator Shlvoly has given no indi

he favors a compromise, if one can
be brought about.

that Taggart Is in control of the con

personally to dominate affairs suffi
ciently to defeat tho endorsement
The Marshall men have not quit
