the J'armer-La.bor Party, threw a
hold-over meeting of 48rs Into con
fusion to-day when he suddenly ap.
pearcd In tho'hall.
About, 200 of tho original 1,200 dele
gates were present and half thoso
cheered Christensen whllo tho. ro-
matnder raised a counter shout of
Christensen asked permission to In
terrupt Gilbert M. Iloe, personal rep
resentatlve of Senator La Follctte,
who was addressing the Forty-clght-
rs, for a brief statement, as he had
to catch a train. This was grunted
and Christensen sajd:
"You 'and I and the others
wanted Senator La Follette, and
if there it still any way to get
him I'll not stand in the way. I
must remain true to that loyal
group of working men and women
who nominated me, but I must
tell you I hope we can all get to
gether, after all."
"With that Christensen strode from
the hall. Ho refused to explain fur
ther his statement that ho would "not
stand In the way" If the Forty-
elghters wanted La Follctto.
The Forty-elghtcre remained In ses
sion and decided to sit all day to com
plete their work,
At the time of this decision the
conference had not assured Itself of
Its status. J. A. II. Hopkins, Chair
man of the Committee of Forty-eight,
presiding, told the delegates no. could
not answer what tho technical posi

Apparently proceeding on the ex
tpectatlon that the committee pre
served Its entity, Chairman Hopkins
proposed that It might either operate
In a sjmllar manner to the Non
Partisan League, Indorsing candi
dates, or It might select a name and,
where tho members of the committee

under this name.
This meeting, had been called after
