Either Tuft or Honacvelt Mar B Pnl On! of I he llnre. Washinoton, April II. -The men In Washington who follow politics are unanimous in their opinion that to-morrow's primaries in Pennsylvania will he tlm (rials In the Hiinse veil -Taft camnaicn for the Itepubllcan Presidential nomlna-! tion. Moth sides are showing to-night nore nervousness than they have at any other time in the fight. linpuhlicuns generally acknowledge that If Iloosevelt sweeps Pennsylvania as he did Illinois it will he a blow from which the Tnft boom will havo great difficulty In recovering. President Tuft' political managers realize that tho eyes of the Republican in tho South are centred on this Pennsylvania contest. Southern del egates to thn Itepublican conventions in years past have been notorious for jump ing to the winning bandwagon, and if Iloosevelt should add Pennsylvania to the prestige that lit gained through the Illlnoio victory many llepublicuns fear the President would find some of his Southern strength slipping away, Kor iloosevelt also to-morrow's pri maries are regarded as vital. If President Taft is able to control the Pennsylvania delegation by a substantial majority it Is the impression hero that IbKnevell's doom "III have met its fatal blow. Defeat for the President in Pennsylva nia on the other hand would give impetus to the talk that is now being heard in many quarter of the poosibility of bring ing fnrw.ini it compromise candidate. In tho opinion of many political observers the turning of Pennsylvania against Taft would i:t;i!e the selection or a third can didate, a man like Justice Hughes, abso lutely n'-oessary, Itm-mnch as it vvoiuri demonstrate that President Tuft could not ho'd.the Republican stronghold of the coiintiy. In Pennsylvania the tight will be on national lines and tlm Taft people will not be able to plead special Slate Issues, fts they did in t lie else of the Illinois (lu teal. Iloosevelt has. It is true, endeav ored to emphasize the Penrose machine Issue in Pennsylvania, but the impre hion Is that the showdown between Taft and Iloosevelt in that State to-morrow will be a fuirone. j Republican leaders in Pennsylv aula J connected with the Tail wing or the party think Koosevelt may get 'at the out side twenty of the sixty-four delegates to be elected to-morrow. They Hro in clined to lielieve the number will be vety much less. They expect Iloosevelt to sjhow his greatest strength in the Pitts burg district and possibly In Philadelphia STANDING OF CANDIDATES.

ROW OVER WILSON Governor's Opponents Try to Take Back Committee's Indorsement. HOLDl'l PREVENTS ACTION' Chairman Ilcnnessy Tackled in Street and lioll Book Taken From 1 1 i tit. An attempt of the anti-Wilson members of the Hudson county Democratic county committee to undo the work of the com mittee in Indorsing the candidacy of (!ov, Woodrow Wilson for the Presidency two weeks ago was thwarted in .lersoy City lust night by Hie work of tin- e holdup men who tackled Tax Commlsilonor lames leuney, ('hall man of the county committee. In tho strnet near the club house of the Detnociutic Club of Hudson county in Mercer street utiri stole from him thn roll book containing the names of alt the members. Without the roll it is impossible to tuke a vole and the meeting broke up. Two weeks ago, with one-! bird of the totul membership of the commit tea pre sent, (iov. Wilson was Indorsed by a vote of K to 3d after the executive com mittee had approved of the Indorsing rcMilution by a vote of II to M, At an Informal meeting of the executive com mittee last night it wa decided by a count of II to 10 to submit to the county committee a resolution setting forth that It is fur the Is-st interests of the Demo cratic jiurty that the delegates to be elected to the Congresn district conven tions shall lie unpledged to any candidate for the nomination of President. There were L'utl or more ersons on hand lit the county committee mooting, and the fun started as soon as Commissioner Frank Hague of the .lersey City Street and Water Hoard introduced the resolution, Hague was formerly the chief lieutenant of Mayor H Otto Wittienn. but he is now against the Mayor He is leading the anti-Wilson fortes in Hudson county and Wlttpeim is one of the Governor's chief supporters, As soon as H ague arose Patrick .1. Donnelly, president of the Jersey City Fire Hoard, shouted, "Yrtu deserted Wittpenn "I do not owe Wittpenn any more than he owes me," retorted Hague Other Wittpenn men pitched into Hague and the anti-Wilson allies came back ut the Wltlpenniles Hedlum ensued and Hague insisted on having a rising vote on the resolution, following the precedent es tablished when the original Wilson in dorsement resolution was adopted. Hen nessv declared it would be out of order to have u rising vote and said he would go to his office in the citv I all and get the tommittee's roll !ook This announcement produced another outbreak'. Hennessy let the hull and Hague m id a motion that Hague lie elected chairman of the meeting. Hague declared the motion carried nnd mounting the tohtriim reconvened the meeting, Ibvnl faction ists broke loose aguin and (ieorge F. Wittpenn. ptesident of the .lerey City police board, announced that lie whs going to call the police. He was (bounded from doing so by Htiti-Wilson men, who said the presence of the polio might convey the impression that hood himism was present. Hague finally ad journed the session im Chairman ilcunesey came in. Hennessy's face was flushed and he was greatly excited. Hu declared the meet itig oien again nnd said: "(lentlemen. ae I was on tnv way kick hero from the City Hull 1 was" held up by three men. They stole the roll lxok out of my hand and run away." There was utinther hubbub and Hen nexsy declared the meeting adjourned for keeps. Hennessy subsequently explained that as he was neaiing Kngme Fire Houmj 3 thtce men came down the street abreast. Tho tallest uf the three made a vicious lunge at him with his list and as he ducked one or ttie otbers gruhbed the roll book out of his hand. All three skipiied around the corner inloOrove streot and got uway. Hennessy intimated that the holdup men had been instigated by Hague and his friends to get tho book. "Wo hud the X'otesand could havolieaten them," ho salri. "Tho reason I would not permit a rising voto was because there weio muny reudy to vot who were not membeis of tho committee." 'that holdup business wan raw stuff." said Hague. "They saw that wo hud them lieaten ton rruzzlo and some of Wttttienn a friends stole tho book bo there could tie no showdown." I.dwunl Hice.

It OOSEVELT TALKS MOHT OUT Cheered When He Says It Is Not Necessary to Strangle Busi ness to Control It. SPRtNortKLD, Mass., April 12. Col. Iloosevelt struck a new wrinkle when he arrived in Springfield to-night. He found himself in the hands of the Com mercial Travellers Club of Springfield, who swell with conscious prldn as members of an organization described as "the oldest and thn largest In the United States." Wlien they got hold of the Colonel to-day it looked as if they were going to pocket him liefore a small audi ence of .inu diners In a banquet hall in the Kimball Hotel nnd linve n pleasant little I talk from him on his. experiences In Africa ' or other harmless topic. There were mill owners and manufacturers in num bers and they were not boiling over with enthusiasm for the Colonel. Hardly had the latter seated himself at this exclusive board than there arose W. (1. MuKechnle, one of the travellers. Democrat , prosectlve candidate for Con gress, who said: "This liody Is in no sense political and does not take Into consideration the political beliefs of its guests. Religion and oliticH play no part and have no place in the constitution of tills club. It is in no sense political," Then in u little aside, explaining that the real burden of the club's existence was "to uplift the home and the city," Mr. McKeclmle, Democrat, harked back to his main theme in'this way: "We here are men of all parties. And in order to avoid any misapprehension let me state teat one of our cardinal principles is the rliiit of free speech. 1 ' 'I Ids was being addressed chiefly to the Colonel, looking grim though polite and apparently ready to start something Mr, McKechnle continued, turning to face the Colonel while he let loose this little pleasantry: "Though we are not in politics here t may say that we Demo crats are looking wlthconsiderablecorn placency this year upon thedifferences in the Itepublican party and' the progress of the principles being advocated by our distinguished guest." Tne speaker did not stop here, but in cluded a kindly word or two for Col. A. P. l.ngtry. Secretary of State in Massa chusetts, who was to introduce the Colonel. "Why apologize for being here?" came a voice from the rear, and Mr. McKechnle sal down. Col. bangtry then introduced the Colonel, who was in his best form, and full of the humor of the situation. In his opening words he slipped a wallop in the iliiectiou of Mr. McKechnle. In a minute' he had the travellers in tour nnd Mr. McKechnle blushing like u new blown rose. "I was duly Impressed with Mr. Mc Kechnie's explanation that there are no polity's heie and that therefore he ought to warn me that IkjIIi he and the toast muster utterly disagree with my policies, then stating that he looked with equanim ity upon the diftereuces now disturbing the Itepublican partv." Turning to Mr. McKechnie the Colonel then shot this one and the audience roa red : "Mr. McKechnle is apiwireutlv tinder the mistaken impression that his own side is boiling over with harmony " There was a burst of applause, and the Colonel stoixl smiling, nimble to go on for some seconds. "If Mr, McKechnle Is reullv fervently Impressed that it is so, 1 would suggest to him that he arrange a joint deluite te tween !V?ssrs. Dry an nnd Underwood and Harmon and Vllson " The crowd burst into laughter once more, while Mr. McKechnie blushed his reddest. The Colonel thanked the Secreturv of State for his introduction und then opened up his speech in these words: "I couldu't refrain from speaking politics to you. for my (Kilitlos represent my deepest and most, earnest convictions as to the vital needs of our people Of course I should speak of them to vou." Then the Colonel plunged into the most earnest speech he has made in the cnmpulgn. He realized that the audience was hostile to him and it roused him to his strongest effort He spoke mainly of business conditions and policies and of his belief in the necessity of the time for remedying the conditions of unequul service and reward among the working people, tho need for u measure to insure absolutely the passage of such social bene fit laws as workmen's compensation, limiting excesslvo hours and dangerous forms of labor which he suggests in his doctrine of the recall of judicial de cisions He sailed into the crowd, telling them that thev and others like them, the class of jeople that enjoyed tlm best of life, should take it upon themselves to be the leaders "in getting justice for all that are less fortunate than you ate, not only for their sakes but for your own. "I wont you to do it not because you are compelled to but because it is bome in upon you to do it and you can't help yourselves from not doing it, because you iealb and sympathi with the less fortunuto." When tho Colonel had finished, drip ping with enpiration in the intensity of his feeling, he had the crowd cheering with enthusiastic good will. And then the Colonel, tho Secretary or Stute and Mr. McKechnie all shook hands. They liegan to xvarm up when the Colonel talked on business nnd applauded him heartily when he said: "We cannot go back to such conditions as obtained in the 'Sun of unlimited com petition lietween weak rivul business concerns." He spoke for an industrial commission to contrql big business as the Interstate Commerce Commission controls railroads, saving: "The railroads said that tho Interstate Commerce Commission meant ruin when I first planned it, but now nineteen out of twenty railroad men soy that It would low as $18 the best at $45. that cannot be excelled. rSB&"l GOV.

Bernard McNeny, president of tho Harmon lagtlo of Nebraska, intro duced United Stntes Senator (Illbert M.

He s.iid in part: I nm heie by the Invltvtlun of my pood f 1 lends In Nebraska ind, while 1 urn alwuys aveisu to speaking about my self. I feel that It Is due to them to speak of some matters of s public natute about which falsehoods '.lave been ell culutyd so wholly unfounded that per sistence In them cannot be ascribed to Pioper motles. It would not be neces sary to do this at home, Thete has been no irttactlon of the published statement that 1 took part In it sale of Uoveiiimeiit bonds which oc curred months before I entered the cab inet.

As that Is the only attempt lit speci fication under the chaice of fuvorlng uny Interests but those of the public. Its complete refutation discredits the charge with every lover of fair play. When one has been lu public life as much as I have, his conduct iiffonls a better test of him than the iis-cltlons of otheis or bis own. Among the many things It was my Kood fui tune to accomplish as Attorneys (tetiernl, the one which is Is-st known, mihI for which even my Republican suc cessors have commended me, was seem ing from the Supreme Couit the llrst dei lslons upholding the Sherman Anti Trust Law.

Hut my llrst election ns Unvrmor, when Ohio went Kepuhllcun by almost 70,000 niHjoiltj, was due to the knowledge of my public services und the belief by I the people of Ohio that their continuance would biliiK uliotit lefoims whose nerd hud bei omc uiycut. (Hie of these icluted to favotltlsm und Kiatflm; In connection with the deposit In banks of the public money.

BABY STILL MISSING ConUnunt from Firit I'age. riagn and walked coolly down Madison; avenue to tho next corner, where she turned westward toward Central Park. The subsequent search of tho police leads them to believe that Annie, carrying the infant, entered the park at Ninety sixth Btreet, flx'o blocks below. That is the lust any one interested has heard of her. They were not uble to get a coherent story for nearly an hour. Hy that time Abraham Kleischman had been summoned from his work and the grandfather hud come from his businese. The register of the hospital sent the police over to Brownsville, where the identity of the girl was established beyond a doubt and enough information gained to spread a police net, Mrs. Boyorsky had onlv sor row for the frantic relatives who followed the police over. "I am sorry," she said. "I huve feared for some time that Annie must go to some place, but I think she will come homo all right: she alwuys comes home. She does not mean any harm to your child she will tuke good cure ofit.' t'upt. W'erzansky of the East 101th street station would not wait for that. Very promptly he put Detectives White, Donovan, King, Oswulri, McGnwan, (Jtlaiue, Cruise, Cessatti und Do Guirio on the case, sent his reserves over into the park and notilleri headquarters to send out the ulurm. They covered Broome street, where Antiis used to live, visited an aunt and uncle In Thirty-eighth street, combed back and forth in tho streets east of .Madison north of ninth street und culled up all hospitals. 'Hie I'leisch mitns, Kappuports and their relatives went over through Brownsville and other Knst New York districts, circulating the alarm union n their Hus-iuii speaking corn put riots . It seemed impossible for a girl with so many noticeable characteristics to elude all this hunt, but not a sign could be discovered during Thursday night. She is about S feet 4 inches in height, brown huireri nnd gray eyed, one of the eyes being distinctly crossed. She wore no hat. She wore n'three-quurter length black clotli coat, under which was u gruy sweater; she wore a brown skirt and black shoes. In addition to this the general uir of weakness, the pallor of her face and the listlessness of her walk would attract attention anywhere. The baby is warmly clud in white and is healthy. According to Iter futiier, any time her buttle is not presented uccorriing lo schedule you cun near her yells three blocks uwuy. Tho tirst theory of a woman "of unsound mind simply wandering through thu streets talking to the child in her nrms has not altogether been uUindoned, but the iKilioo nre favoring one other in the light of discoveries. Annie had only Hi cents when she left home, but no one has reported a wailing infant in tho street in care of a girl, 'lhe other link is the discovery that with all her love for tho kibies Annie was not above doing a little bit of business with them. She has reason enough to derive prolits from Iter pitiable npeurutice. Over in Browns ville they say that while she hud the I'rnbolitsky infant she got enough money by her tale of woe to go to several moving pint m i) shows. Mrs. Ilogoninl or .is Eust ll'.'lli street reported to thu Fleischmans yesterday that on Thursday morning, before she went to tho hospital, Annie had como to her house and K-gged successfully for Id cents. Mrs. Isidore Auik of 410 Bniri forri street, Kust New York, bus told the police that she gave Annie Hi cents on u plea earlier in tho day. A conductor of the Madison avenue car line has said that h thinks Annie and thelnfant roclo north with him ut 2 o'clock on Thursday after noon from Ninety-eighth streot to U4th street. The police were told of the visit to the park by tho fruit store mun nt the Ninety-sixth slreet corner. Around 5 o'clock last night thoKast lotth street detectives led by Detective King, stnrted for Coinmiinipuw. They had n tnessago that a girl answering tho rio criptlon of Annio was over there.
