Has Only Three Votes in
SWANGER TALKS BY ACTS.
"While Announcing Neutrality,
He Prefers the Company of
ters to Any Others.
If propinquity slgnflcs. Secretary of
State-elect John E. Stranger favors State
Chairman Thomas IC Niedringhaus for
United States Senator. Ills headquarters
1 at the Laclede Hotel yesterday were ?d-Jolnlng-
those of the State chairman, and
he spnt most of the day there and at the
headquarters of the State Committee In
the Commercial building.
During part of the day he was In con
sultation with Auditor-elect W. W. Wilder
of Ste. Genevieve. -They discussed appoint
ments, looked over their correspondence,
and Anally gavo up In despair. They said
they were taking no part In the senatorial
fight However, when they departed for
Jefferson City last night, the politicians
were busy figuring them lined up for Nled
ringhaus and more than one applicant for
an appointment was taking a reef in his
State Senator-elect A. E. I Gardner of
BL Louis County was in chargo of the
Niedringhaus headquarters yesterday and
received numerous visitors. One Democrat
ic member of the present House of Rep
resentatives even managed to follow the
old tracks to the old headquarters of the
Democratic State Committee and discussed
the changes that had taken place. He was
Representative John W. Farley of Platte.
All the oppAicnts of R. C. Kerens were
"taking notlc?" of the announcement of
Major William Warner of Kansas City for
the senatorship. It was remarked as very
slgnlflcant that tho telegram asking him
to announce himself was signed by three
members from Jackson County Senator
Clarke and RepresentaUves-elect Moss
Heretofore, the friends of Kerens have
been claiming live votes and "probably"
six votes from Jackson County. The War
ner telegram effectually disposes of this
claim, for. If the Warner candidacy means
anything. It means that three of the Jack
son County members are opposed to Ker
ens. FAILED TO LINE UP.
News also leaked out yesterday that
Keren's friends have failed to line up
their men In the Fifteenth District Lost
week Senator llclndoe of Joplln sent out
invitations to the members elect in th
Fifteenth District asking them to hold a
. caucus In his offices last Saturday to dis
cuss the senatorial situation.
Friends of Kerens boasted that when the
caucus would be held a pronunclamento
would bo Issued telling- how solid the Fif
teenth was for the former National Com
mitteeman. Another fatal stop, for when
the caucus was held only llclndoe and
two members elect who live In Jasper
County were on hand. Not a man from
outside of the county appeared.
Naturally no pronunclamento was Is
, sued, apd it is not certain that all of the
Jasper County people will be for Kerens.
It ts certain that aU or the Fifteenth Dis
trict members will not. The Fifteenth
District Republicans are supposed to be
for Roosevelt and they do not care to be
put in tho attitude of favoring the elec
tion of a Senator who Is distasteful to the
' ?$ "chlng" of Dr. James Stewart
of Warren County was discussed freely
anong tho Republicans yesterday. Some
of his old friends claimed that the changs
of heart from Niedringhaus to Kerens on
such short notice was not surprising.
According to them, he had formerly said
that he was for D. Pat Djer first and L,
V. Parker second. A close personal friend
of Kerens said yesterday that undoubted
' ly Stewart would remain fixed this time
and would not Switch any more. Friends
of the other candidates express the same
A friend of Stewart from Warren Coun-
Vi h?Il..tnL s'e?rt 1,ad talked much
about his friendship for noosevelt dur
ing the campaign and had remarked to
him more than once that Roosevelt's ma
jority in this State should put the party
on record ai favoring anything tho Presi
dent wished done. If this is tfic caseTthe
rhange is all the more remarkable.

No effort was made to outline a pro

failed in the last session of Congress or
was advocated by the President in his
message to Congress.
At informal meetings of the Senate lead
ers several of these measures have been
discussed and the tacit understanding
reached that some of them should be kept
In the background until later in the ses
sion. Notably Is this true of the proposed
legislation granting the Interstate Com
merce Commission supervision over rail

bills will be sent over from the House be

of Congress nothing of a disputed char

It Is believed by Senate leaders that
there will be no substantial action on the

as one State.

confirmation In threo sessions beoiuso of
the contest led by Senator Tillman, doubt
