INDIANAPOLIS, IncJ., May With Eugene V.

Among the “possibilities" the most likely are Emil Seidel, former mayor of Milwaukee, and Rev. George K. ?.unn, socialist mayor of Schnectady. There is also talk of Charles Edward Lust'd!, the magazine writer, who V- as the socialist candidate for gov i rnor of New York in 1910 Socialists of the United States ex -1 ect to make the best showing of fheir history in the presidential elec tion this year. They believe they may even break Into the electoral col lege, which they have never yet done. To get into the college they would have to carry at least one state. “We have an excellent chance of tarrying Oklahoma or Nevada or pos sibly both this year." said John M. Work, secretary of the national so cialist party. , Oklahoma has 10 votes in tht» elec toral college and Nevada. 3.

The total vote of Oklahoma In 1908 on president was 254,671, Taft getting the state by a plurality of more than 10,000. The socialist vote in Nevada has in creased from 925 in 1904 to 3,637 In 1910. The state’s total vote in 1908 avas 24.090. Taft carrying it by a plur ality of 437. Elsewhere the socialists plan to In crease the size of their vote, re-elect Victor L. Berger, of Milwaukee, to congress, capture other congressional dlrtrlcts If possible, and increase their representation in state legislatures. The national socialist convention will be composed of between and 300 delegates. Each state and terri tory has one delegate at large and one for each 400 members of the par ty in good standing above the first 400 members. Members in good rtanding are those whose dues aver aging 25 cents a year are paid. Dele gates are elected by reforendumjiirtf? of the party members in 'Che convention, therefore, Is absolute ly representative of the rank and file of the party. The number of dueß-paylng mem bers has increased from 16,976 in 1903 to 125,826 in 1912. One of tbo arguments to be used by socialist orators this year is the ln cfease in the socialist vote and mem hersblD of national legislative bodies in foreign countries. It will be argued that the movement towards socialism Is world wide. The voters of the United States will be urged to keep abreast of the advance elsewhere. Jan. 1, 1912, socialist members of national legislative bodies were as fol lows: Argentina 1, Austria 79, Bel gium 42, Chile 3. Bulgaria 8. Denmark 28, England 31, Finland 84, France 76, OUR PRECISE ARTIST / 1 ' . “A heavy minted, or la othar words, kUw. - Germany 110, Holland 7. Italy 44, Lux •uburg 10.

The socialist platform this year will probably he substantially the same as that of 1908, when the chief demands were: Government public schools. Conservation of natural resources. Collective ownership of public utilities. Day and a half rest for every wbrk er in every seven days. Prohibition of child labor and of in terstate transportation of its products. Government insurance against un employment, illness, accident and old age. Inheritance and income taxes. Equal suffrage for men and women. Initiative, referendum amt recall.

WANT DEFINITION OF ‘ POWER IN MONEY PROBE WASHINGTON, May" 2—Confronted with the problem of a clash before th » courts over their authority to compel testimony in their probe of the money trust, members of the house commit tee today plauned to submit the ma'- ter to the house for a more compre hensive definition of their power. The committee learned today that New York banks hope to stall the in quiry by a federal injunction to pre vfcut enforced disclosures of their business relations on the ground that such evidence would reveal financial secrets of their clients, in such a con tingency, the committee plans to re port the hairier thus raised against their probe, and to ask for si>ecial legislation to permit overriding of such an artifice. Members today admitted that under the present power given the commit tee such an injunction could success lully stave off any probe. D. U. R. Earnings Increase.
