ROOSEVELT IN CONFER? All-Day Meeting Held to Find a Way to Beat Taft. WILL CALL CONVENTION! i - May Run Prendergast for Gov? ernor?Won't Name Pull Electoral Tickets. Behind locked doors a baker's dosen Waders of the new third party, the so called Progressive party, held a conferenes at the Hotel Manhattan for many hours yesterday. All present doffed their coats and vests and roll ;d up their shirt sleeves. The proceedings began at 10 o'clock In the morning and lasted until 8 o'clock la?t night, with adjournments for luncheon and dinner. Senator Joseph If. Dixon presided. Other? who attended were Timothy L. Woodruff, of Brooklyn; Ormsby McHarg, of New York; William Halpln. of New York; Lucius W. Llttauer, of Gloversvllle; Amos Pirichot, Controller William A. Prender gast. ex-Senator Albert J. Reverldge, of Indiana: h>ank A. Munsey, freorge B. Cor telyou, Lawrence V. Abbott, president of the "Outlook," and George W. Perkins. Several times during the day, the wires between Room No. WG, where the secret conference was held, and Colonel Roose? velt's home, at Sagamore Hill, were kept busy, for It was thought advisable to sub? mit all questions under debate to the Big Boss at Oyster Bay for final determina? tion. livery possible effort was made to pre? vent the news that a secret meeting was In progress from reaching the reporters. When several newspapermen knocked on the door of Room No. ?$0> It wa? opened by Senator Dixon, who flushed redder than the Stripes In his shirt and stammered that he had nothing to say. But earlier In the day two members of the secret conference Informed the news? papermen what had taken place at tho sect et meeting while they were there. At that time these men did not know that Senator Dixon and his associate? had de? termined on withholding from the public the doings of the bosses gathered there. "The main object of the meeting," said one of these men, "was to determine upon the best way of beating Taft. After much discussion It wa? agreed not to nominate any ITesldentlal electors In such states as Pennsylvania, Maryland, Nebraska. Ore? gon. California, North Carolina, Illinois, Kansas, New Jersey, Otilo, West Virginia ?nd the two Dakotas, ?-.here we know the electors chosen by Republican conventlins will cast their votes In the Electoral Col? lege for Mr. Roosevelt." The next proposition taken up was Boas Fl.nn's suggestion not to put up any state tickets %ji su. h states as those named above, as the main object of the Roose? velt men was to beat President Taft, and to put up state tickets everywhere would Involve a considerable outlay of money. "Wiille we have a fairly large promise of money," he went on, 'and while our finan? cial reliance Is placed largely upon such tii'-n ?s Charles B. Crane, Amos and Glfford Pin.-hot. Alexander H. Revell and Frank A. Munsey? we dc not think It advisable to put up ?t?te tickets everywhere, as It will cost a lon-lderable sum to build up the new party in itself, let alone the country -wide light we will make against Tait. "We will or.lv put up tickets In the states controlled by the reactionaries Yoj can Imagine what this flght Is going to cost us whan you know that the primaries cost u? almost $3.0OO,a00 " Controller Prendergaat. whr has been ap? pointed leader of the New York Roos-velt party, because the placing of "little Tim" Woodruff would savor too much of bosslsm, win issue a call next week for h state con *.-ntion. which will bo held probably In this city. Controller Prendergaat may be named for Governor Presidential deiega'es will also be chosen. A full state ticket will also be named. T.'io se.-ret enference adjourned at S o'clock last night to meet again to-day.. It Is not probable that to-day's conference will be held at the Manhattan Hotel.
