Chillingworth, chairman of the convention,' makes no secret of the fact that he Is heartily in favor cf bnt two delegates. A few old wheel horses of the party - men who have followed the work ings of the various factions predict that while two delegates proper are chosen from the list, lour, alternates will also be named Instead of two, thus making up a list of fix able to attend the convention.
