Roosevelt would probably bo the gainer In district delegates, but what Is taken to Indicate thut there may bo a compromise Instead of a lonli'st, asldu from the Colonel's htatemrut to-day. Is the belief that Sena tor IahIko ban linen of communication established with Hugamoro Hill: tho Sen ator has n personal liking for Mr. Iioosevelt, Representative Gardner Is tits son-lli-law. and Senator I-odne, llko Gov. McCall, wants to succeed himself In the oftlce ho now holds. Accordingly, up to the point of achieving their own desires to be reelected, the Senator and Gov ernor may bo ready und willing to swing over to tho ex-President at tno con vention. Tlm dale of the primary election of delegates is April 25. and It would not surprise prophets closo to the Colonel to seo four Republican delegates chosen on that date from Massachusetts who havo either avowed or latent predilections for the Colonel. Ilefore Massachusetts decides what delegates shall go to the Republican convention, however. Penn sylvania will pick Its men for the same errand, and Progressive-Republican tend era from that Htato aro coming to Oy ster Hay to discuss tho situation with tho Colonel. In Pennsylvania Gov.

If ho wins the delegation to tlio convention he will undoubtedly have to swing over to somebody else's support when It comes to the final analysis, and It will probably result that this some body will bo Col.
