NO OHIO PRIMARY.
M.tV SPLIT DELEGATIOX. Stiff Fight for Delegates in Each Congress District. 1 i' r a Pp^.-la! C"!re«por.<>nt of The Tribune.) Columbus. Ohio, May 4. — After weeks of par leying It is now clearly evident that there will 1«» no general primary In Ohio to settle the ques tton of the state's preference, for the Presidency. This statement can he mado with absolute as surance. 'f there was anything needed to tie crape to 'he hope for such a contest in the state, that war supplied b* the, statement of Governor An drew 1,. Harris, who says that he believes with tbe Attorney General that it is impossible to noli a state primary under the present laws of the state This statement has been, accepted as the word, with the bark on It. and the Re ruMirans are now laying plans for the capture of tit" state- for this and that candidate In the '•M-'ashloned way. There will he no new frills and furbelows In the fight between Foraker and Taft. This state ment, made a week ago in this correspondence, Is verified by the developments of this week. There will be a fight in each Congress district, - practical lines, for It Is to be organized against organized force. That the delegation will be n divided one Is probable. And it is expected that ihis fact will :onFtrate<i poor after the beginning of the new xear Last year a number of the Congress districts »et new marks. They established precedents as to times for holding district conventions. While Congress was yet In session and the leg islature was In the early days of Its existence ( 'inventions were held and Henry T. Bannon r :ninated for Congress in the lOth District. Ralph D. C<>l« in the Sth and Albert Douglas in the 11th. The first two were renominatlona; that Bf Douglas was a defeat for the dean of the ■ lelegßtion. Charles H. Grosvenor. With these early conventions as a precedent, there will be a number of districts lined up for conventions next year. Both the Foraker snd the Taft forces will seek to demonstrate strength In the early hours of the fight. When the challenge was flwt made for a pri • vy n came from the lipa of Senator Foraker, who declared his hope that the question of the Rate's preference for President would be set the ttate convention, after the delegates Lherete had been elected by primary. Then the Taft men began to talk of a general Fate primary, and since that time th*re has been nothing heard In the state except the ques- I an a<= to whether or not Ohio will hold a gen eral primary this year. WHERE OPPOSITION DEVELOPED. It became manifest immediately after the age was Issued hy Senator F"raker that the various county and city organisations of j ■ie did not take kindly to the primary Tnrler the new amendment to the state nstftutloa only municipal and township elec are h»ld In the eld numbered years, while mty snd state elections are held in the numbered >ears. The Idea of the I^egis was ti divorce municipal from general us, in the interest of correct municipal •-,ent. " turally. therefore, the party leaders In all •>s where municipal elections are to be bject to any fight in primary or conven- Mch might interfere with their campaign - for the municipal elections the coming Immediately after his return to Ohio Senator r'orsker yielded to this sentiment, and said that he was willing to make his fight at the time trfecc It would be least harmful to his party. The:; the ■ ';, :'• men demanded a primary this fr.l". It matters not what their Idea was In so tolni. me persons assert that they made tfctir demand only after they knew that the ;»?.r:y leaders would not stand for It. The Taft :ncn themselves disclaimed any such Intention, r.r.il said that they wanted to settle for once and Tcr al! the question of supremacy In the state. TV" <lalia la that if Foraker or* Taft, or any other Ohio man. is to gain any headway In the national nght he must be able to nay to other states that lie is backed by his own delegation. Ibis, they gay, would be Impossible If the fight :* to be left to the Congress districts. The Taft men say they will contest in each district in the '-ate, and are now at work per i>"ting; their organization In each county, with a view to the capture of as many national dele gates as possible. And in this work of organiza tion they -nill not overlook the state 'committee. They want the organization, and they want It badly. For, now that they are sure where Sen ator Dick Is lined up, they are after his scalp as veil as that of Senator Foraker. They would deprive Senator Dick of control of the party machinery, and they would construct a machine of their own, with a -slate for the state conven tion and a prepared slate for national delegates "t-large from the state.. If they are to win theM they moat control the state convention end be able to indorse Mr. Taft by resolution. BITTER FIGHT FOR DELEGATES. Thll means a bitter fight for delegates to both the Congress and state conventions, and there will be no let-up now. From th* developments of the last week it becomes clearly evident that the two United States Senators are forced to fight for their po litical lives. If they have hopes of any nature 'or the future, they must win In tills fight. If their friends ar« to be loyal, they must stand up '•n this contest. If the old organization, built for McKlnley by Hanna, with the aid of Dick «vl John It. Malloy. Is to endure. It must rally Hi forces for the present fray. it 181 8 a fight for survival, a light to prevent political burial. Senator Dick realizes this as well as Senator Foraker. The old line organization men realize st, and they are awake to every move that the Taft men make. They watch former Governor Herrick and those of his followers who have lined up with the Taft-Burden people. They have abut their eyes to the past differences with Foraker, and are fighting as one man for his success and the power that goes with their own organization. Will they win? They say they •HI. and they are confident. But the Taft-Her rick-Burton people are also confident. Senator Dick has returned from the East, *'here hi went after a few days at home last r **k, and has opened headquarters for active f*apalgn work. From a suite of rooms in Akron »c is conducting a fight for Foraker delegates not enly in Ohio, but in other states' as well. riWI West and East he is dally receiving callers, « en who have to do with the selection of dele i/V or the natlonal convention, 11 ere has been doubt at- to the candidacy of tTiJ Orak * r for the Presidency. th« answer is .L, 2 und 1n this action on the part of the junior Senator from Ohio.

EFFORTS FOR HARMONY FT'TILE. During the week Walter Brown, chairman of the state central committee, made an effort to l>rlng about harmony in the party. He failed, for he could make no headway with either ra rt >' to the controversy, lie talked with Commis sioner Vorya, Charles P. Taft. Senator Foraker, Senator Dick and Governor Harris. Then he told his personal frlendi thai he ha<] undertaken a job too big: for aiiy man but Roosevelt. This statement Is' significant In the light of the previ ous falluVea to bring- about harmony. Charles P. Taft. brother of tlv- War Secretary, attempted to bring about an understanding:. He failed, after he had a conference with the Presi dent: Up to the time of that conference ho declared that he would bo surprised if there developr-d any fight In the state. But after hia talk -with the President h<' quit talking har mony, and picked up a baseball !>:it. Next, El mer Dover, secretary of the National Commit tee, tri>'d to find tbe white wing'-d dove. He, too. failed, and Is now smeared with war paint and declaring that Foraker would make an ad mirable President. Tln-n Senator Murray Crane, Of Massachusetts, and Senator Dick, of (>hlo. attempted to pour oil on the troubled waters, hut they quit, und both have Belsed tomahawks. So, In the light of these facts, tln-re is no surprise that Mr. Brown should have failed. And his statement that no man short of the Presi dent can harmonize the factions here is regarded as significant. The candidates for places on the state ticket nr« growing active. There is a genera] desire for the nomination for Lieutenant Governor Among the most active candidates for this honor Is former Judge Frank M. Kerr, of Bteubenvllle. Judge Kerr is nctiv*-, and is working for tin nomination with a zeal which is commending him to party workers in various puts of the state. I'rom Canton there comes a tip that that county will make a strong bid for the nomina tion of a man on the ticket. They want to make County Prosecutor I'phnm the next At torney General, and they are letting the ffti t be known. FORA KEN ON PRIMARIES. 1 Never Expected to Hold Them in Ohio This Year, He Sai/s. I Hy Telegraph to The Tribune 1 Cincinnati, May 4.— Senator Foraker Issued a | statement this evening which was, perhaps, j largely prompted by numerous Inquiries to-day j as to whether he had anything t<> say regarding the statement yesterday of George B. Cos, op posing the holding of primaries this year In j connection with the contest between Secretary ; Taft and himself for the Presidential nomina tion. The statement is as follows: I never contemplated that anybody would ex pect to hold primaries for next years conven tion until after we were through with the. elec tions of ibis year. In the statement I put out at Washington I distinctly said it w;is now pre mature to be considering such matters, but that in view- of tho announcements that were being ; made I took the liberty of statins; that at th' proper time I would ask the State Central Com mittee to call primaries for the selection of delf gates to a state contention to nominate the can didates who are to ho elected to office next year and to express the preference of the Republicans of Ohio for President and Senator. Coupled as the statement was as to primaries with the declaration that it w:is now premature, it never occurred to me that any one would ex pect that we would start In upon the business of next year until we were through with the busl- I ness of this year. When I reached Canton, on April 10 I learned that It was being claimed that I would ask that primaries be held either before the elections of thiH year or In connection with them, and I then took occasfton to announce the same construction ■if what 1 had originally said that 1 now i-:\ When, therefore, Mr. <",',v Bald that we should not take up next year's business until after tho j elections of this year, he expressed exactly what has been In my mind all the while and what I have all the while, when 1 have spoken on tho subject, tried to say. Beyond this, 1 do not care to discuss political matters at this time. W. J. BRYAN'S OPINION OF LAWYERS. Tells of Having to Go to New York to Find Men Who Had Not Been Bought. Chicago.

Nassau County Lost Sleep When Peekskill Thought It Had Elopers. Peeksklll and Us neighborhood were all wrought up yesterday morning by the supposed discovery In that town of Jere Knode Cooko and Miss Floretta Whaley, the child with whom he ran away from Hernpstead a few days ago. About 10 o'clock Fri day night a middle aged man of clerical appear ance, accompanied by a voting girl, registered at the Hotel Raleigh, In Peekfiklll, as c. 11. Barnes and Helen M. Barnes, of Poughkeepsie, taking two rooms. Mr. Forebush, the proprietor of the hotel, reads the Xew York papers neatly every day, and as the girl, he says, looked "very happy," he was sure that he had the unfrocked rector and Miss Whaley in his hotel. In a few minutes the. local constabu lary, from the chief down to the other patrolman, the district attorneys' offices of two or three coun ties and half the honest yeomanry of the village wire sure that the elopers had been caught. The Chief of Police, Mr. Seabury, was the first to be Informed of the suspicions- rather, cer tainty—of Mr. Forebush, who agreed with him that "If they're not the rector, who can they be?" 80 the chief— lt being then about 2a. routed Karl J. Bennett. Assistant District Attorney of Nassau County, out of bed. who ordered the chief over the telephone to keep his eagl<» eye on the pair. The chief promised not to let the pair out of his eight any more than he hud to, and. pinning on bis shield, salll.-d forth to tho Raleigh to keep his word. Mr. Benett In th« mean time was disturbing the rest of District Attorney Coles of Nassau, who lives at Glen Cove. He, In turn, got Sheriff Gildersleeve out of bed and sent him to Hempstead to apprise the missing girl's grandmother, Mrs. Keziah Whaley, of the news. After long niiKinK of tht. door bell, she arose and swore to a com plaint charging Cooke with abduction. As soon aa be had roused Justice (Jettlns from his Blum hern to sign the warrant for Cooke h arrest, the Hherlff got two of his deputies and sent them off to Peekskll. It being planting time, he found them already up and about. , In Hempstead the news of the former rectors capture had been bruited about by the usual coun try wireless system, and great preparations were begun for his reception when the deputy slier got back. But they all went astray, for about the time the two officers were leaving the Grand cen tral Station it was discovered that the snark was a boojum. you see." for the mysterious guests of the Raleigh had turned out to be. not the rec reant rector, but a collcltor for a religious publi cation and his daughter. Chief Seabury had gone sleuthing, only to upset his own theories. The Initials he found on their baggage agreed with the names on tne hotel regis ter? "h* called up August Belmont on the te e phone. but he couldn't convince, the banker of the necessity of coming to Peekskill at once to lden niv the "rector" While ho was at the telephone Mr Barnes and hi» daughter got their buggy and drove away, telling the clerk that they nilght come blck. y A little later the two deputy sheriffs and a county detective arrived, to take the next train back, firmly convinced that Cooke and Miss Whalev had not visited Peeksklll. It was learned yesterday that Just before Cooke eloped he received a threatening anonymous letter in which he was warned that his intimacy with Mis* Whaley must cease. Beside* Bishop Burgess. Hergen Carmen, one of the vestrymen of St. Georges. ha» also received a letter from Cooke It was in reference to a few personal debts of Cooke. which he assured Mr. Carmen would be *Mr». Cooke visited rleaspstead yesterday to pack up her belongings In the rectory. She will probably co to her home In Hartford to-morrow. Her hus band's elopement has recalled some unfavorable comment on his unusually frequent visits to 1 young widow a short time ago. following which the widow went to a sanatorium for several weeks. Thin caused much gossip at the time, which was swallowed up in the later and more sensational exploits of the unfrocked clergyman.

(HA MPIOXS BRISTLISG. Metz and Coin Get After Each Other. in Dead Earnest. There Is Kilns to be a duel between Controller Mats and Borough President Coler of Brooklyn some klml of a duel. The well Informed newspaper reader has become accustomed to wordy duels between these, cham pions of the people's right*. Any ordinary contro versy would not attract attention. But th« next encounter will bo different. The Controller has ■wearied of the studied contrnnellousness of the Bor ough President, and, on the other hand, the cal lousness of tho Controller In turning down requests emanating from the Borough President* office has worn the nap off the finer feelings of the man who came near being Governor. So there's going io be what you might call a war betwixt those battle scarred jousters. Borough President '"oler. after storing up vials of bitterness In Brooklyn on Friday night, emptied them on the pate of tho Controller. Mr. Colet at tended on Friday the meeting of th* Board of Esti mate and Apportionment. There was the .duve of peace hopping all around, COoing with every one. It palled on Mr. Coler and made him ausplcloua. On the same night he atidrohuu<i a meeting In Brooklyn and forgot his text long enough to nay that Controller Met* i.a.i forsaken Brooklyn's in terests and had fallen a victim to Ibe machinations (if the capitalists. "lie went Into that office an honest young man, with a chance to make a record, " eald the Borough President. "We ■•■c him now obeying tlie orders of the Black Horse Cavalry ami disregarding the appeals of Die plain people. He Is againat the laboring man and for the (ran chls*grabbers. He Is absolutely domlnatrd by that lean Machlluevelllan lobytat ai«l manipulator, P. ii. McCarren." Mr. Coler went on at length In this manner, mul when he bad finished he was satisfied that all of the lustre was gone from the reputation of the Controller. Moreover, it seems that Mr. Coler Una been stirring up the labor organizations against tin; Controller, until they have begun to pass reso lutions of denunciation. "When I see Color I am going to tell him in fitting terms what 1 think of him." said the Con troller yesterday. "Hitherto we have engaged In airy persiflage. Herafter It will be different. When I have the next Interview with Coler he will think ho has been soaking In oil of vitriol for twenty four hours. I've been very patient with him tad considerate of lilh feelings, knowing that he Wag under a cloud a thousand miles thick, but he lias not appreciated it. The next time we meet Color will know Just what I think of him. He'll get It first banded. "Coler In bis speech said that tho Department of Taxes had assessed his house at only GO per cent of its real value. I am glad to know It. I snail call the attention of President Purdy of the tax office to tho omission, and Coler can rest assured that be will pay all the taxes on his house that the law allows." . . /. The war records of the two indicate that tho combat will be sanguinary. Controller Meta 1b a major In tbe 14th Ueglment of Brooklyn, a fine horseman and an unerring shot. Mr. Coler is somo what at a disadvantage an compared —Ith him. but still lie is not without a record. He was commodore of the Brooklyn Yacht Club, and has been rear admiral on numberless Sunday school excursions up the Sound. The fact that ha can nay things which cause ih« Controller mental perspiration Droves that he 'a not without resources. The gen tlemen are likely to meet at the next meeting of the Board of Estimate and Apportionment, on Fri day Mr Met* Is fortifying himself by attending beefsteak dinners and singing Irish songs. Mr. Coler Is taking private lessonii from an instructor In picturesque billingsgate. ATTACKS HOOKER WILL. Gr&ndniece Files Notice of Protest in Hartford Court.
