Taft Delegates Solidified. The fact is the Tal't delegates have heen solidified beyond all expectations. Tvs.. debates and two ballots have had the magical "--ffect of transforming a house of cards into a monster of reinforced con crete. Up to the meeting of the convention it was felt that those Taft delegates, dragged up from everywhere and nowhere and held together by no feeling of love or loyalty or patriotism, would msily dls. Integrate. They would be subject to per Bonal Influence and the hysteria of stam pede Bui yesterday ihere were sss votes on the T.-iff side und today (here were rH4.

DARK HORSE GOSSIP AMONG JM LEADERS Cummins May Be Prominent in Case President Lacks Clear Majority. By International News Service CHICAGO, June 80. At 1:16 o'clock trds momiiiK Senator Murray Crane, the Taft lender from Massachusetts, and Senator Kenvon of Iowa, broke up a con ference that had lasted between them selves for nearly three hours. .Senator Crane said that he and Mr. Kenyon had met to discuss replaclnc Taft before the convention with Cummins Hnd that there was goOd reason to believe that this out come would settle the controversy now before the convention. A conference of other Taft leaders, that was held in the Congress hotel were planning to make Hudlev the vice presi dential candidate on the Tafl ticket The Tnft-Oummlns conference followed closelj on tiiB sensational bolt of the Roosevelt members of the credentials committee. The overtures were made Ivy the Taft lenders to the managers of Sen ator Cummins with a view of switch ing ihe Taft Strength to Cummins In order to save the patty and nullify the effect or the Roosevelt bolt.

The plan Included the sup posed hrlblnt: of a captain of police to leave open the jail doors tbat ihe pris oner might escape and the subsequent holdup of the escaped prisoner and the ' bribed' police captain as they were re turninsr from the Idnel spot where the money had been hidden, the chief of p llee, Inspector and a detective playing the roles of highwaymen, Admits Finding Cash. R. Jacobson. a teamster In the etnplov of P. J. Moran. was taken Into custody early last night bv Inspector C. A.

To tbe sur prise of the police, Jaeohson readily ad mitted finding the money, but stoutly refused to turn it over to the officers except on condition that he should re ceive $700 as reward John Gulian, who lost the money, offered Jacobson $100. hut the offer was spurned. Jacobson did not have the money on him and r fused to tell lis hiding place, though Chief Grant read the law to him relat ing to such cases and pointed out that be would be sent to the penitentiary un less he surrendered the nioney- Willingly Faces Prison. " Yon have my terms," replied Tacob son. ''I will make no others. TCither I aet $700 of that money or I gt all of it, even though I have to spend the next twenty years m the state prison." "Very well, lock him up," ordered the chief. yLSfi Then followed the most Ingenious bit Of prisoner baiting on record in locil police annals. Detective Herbert T.eich tcr was stripped of his gun and badge, dressed In ragged clntb and thrown with mock violence Into the cell occu pied by Johnson. After the detective bad finished au artistic piece of pro fanity directed against tho police de partment, he deigned to notice his fellow prisoner. "What they sot you In for?" said Lelchter.
