I i WILSON PLANNING ROOSEVELT SEES w TRIES TO SIDETRACK FOR PROGRESSIVES' CHICAGO MEETING ft- ,x i HTJArtTTT. I T. Tlllv M-fniilraM, bli original intention, Gov. Woodrow Wilson will hot conduct a "dignified" tay-at-homo campaign for the Presi dency, though many of his friends have advised this course. The governor will profit by the experience of Judgo Far ter, who, when nominated for tho'Prest flenoy in 1901, remained at Esopus for the better part of the campaign, going 16 New Tork only when j the light seemed to be lost Governor Wilson has been asked to deliver his keynote speech In the Academy of Music, Brooklyn, but he will probably be unable to do ,thls, though New Tork State will come in for 'a lot of his attention later oh. The governor will first go to Maine, where the election takes place on the first Tuesday In September. With Governor PlaUted, who will undoubtedly be a candidate for re-election, Governor W1I sdn will make a thorough tour of that State In the hope of carrying Maine and thus encouraging the other doubtful States to fall in-line. To carry Maine by a' substantial vote would be equiva lent, it Is figured, to a national vic tory. Maine Is generally Republican by a sale margin. Hiven it jiaintea snouia be"deteated for re-election, a good show ing would be a hopeful sign. Governor Wilsort ' will probably go to Maine the second or third week in August. V Relies on O'Gorman. The first New Tork speech will be reUV'ered In the Academy of Music, Brooklyn, as soon as the Maine elec tion has been disposed of. Despite Governor Wilson's official attitude of non-interference in State situations, his friends say that ho will tako more than afoasslng Interest in the State nomina tions in New Tork. He has had a num ber of conferences with Senator O'Gor man with respect to these. O'Gorman is on friendly terms with Thomas Mott Osborne and his associates, who are trvintr wrppit control ni tnc stale from Tammanv Loader Murphy and de feat Governor Dix ror rcnorainauon. If Wilson is elected o uorman as mo United States Senator will supervise the '.distribution of Federal patronage. Wll- .. I l antrl Vina a nntlnfl that tvlth Ithe help of this patronage he can ultl jinately make O'Gorman the State lead 'er. In the meanwhile, however, O'Gor man's function will be to harmonize the conflicting elements in the State, and force the nomination of a man who will advance rather than retard Wilson's election. Wilson's friends say it would be a blight on the Presidential ticket to have an Indifferent candidate running for governor in New Tork. It Is an Im portant State and is giving Wilson a 'lot of anxiety. Wilson's friends count on the Demo cratic nominee profiting greatly by the ibltter fight that will doubtless be waged bv Barnes and Roosevelt. Barnes, who fwas responsible for Roosevelt's defeat in the Chicago convention, win oe trie object of the Roosevelt attacK, ana, or course. Barnes will retaliate. It Is hoDed that the effect will be to disgust Republican voters and force them into tno Democratic party. Governor Wilson will stump Connecti cut In company with Governor Simeon IE. Baldwin. He will tour Missouri with Speaker Champ Clark, in order to as sure the country that he and his most important convention adversary are on the most iriendly terms. Tne same poli cy will be pursued with Oscar W. Un derwood, only of course, It will not be necessary to make a hard tight In so safely a Democratic State aa Alabama. Indiana will be stumped with Gov, Thomas R. Marshall, the. Vice Presiden tial nominee. Governor Marshall Is not much of an orator, but the voters will want to see him. In Ohio, Wilson and Gov. Judson Harmon will join forces and appear jointly at the big rallies. During the period Intervening between Ithei official notification on August 5 and tne opening 01 tne nsni in .amine, Wil son's time will be largely occupied In conference with the 'various State leaders. OT8TKR BAT, July i26.-Thcodore Roosovelt yesterday reached an abso lute agreement with the' Republican leaders In Minnesota by means of which he believes' Roosevelt electors" are as sured. Ho also said that the same planiwould apply in Kansas, Nebraska, Idaho, California, North Dakota, and South Dakota. . AtF contesting this, Issue wittuWill !a'?.ln,nn of Pennsylvania, and Everett Colby, of New Jersey, Roosevelt made no protest against the fusion 'plan- in Minnesota when It w.asputup .to'hlra.' The visitors from Minnesota were Lieu tenant Governor Gordon, who n6w wishes to run for governor with Pro gressive backing, and C. TV Knapp. a member of the State house of repre sentatives. After luncheon with Colonel iRoose velt. Lieutenant Governor Gordon said: "The voters' of Minnesota are for Roosevelt for President because they believe he was cheated out of the nomination. I came' here with Mr. Knapp to go over the situation with the colonel. Electors All T. R. Men. "The present electors are all Roose velt men and would 'be willing to pledge themselves to vote for him. But; under the State law they would be obliged to be elected upon' a ticket headed by 'the names of .Taft and Sherman. While there might be no doubt of their stand .BALTIMORE, July 28. The Maryland Progressive Republicans assembled here In hopes of carrying Prince George county-nnd to influence as many votes Ing, the electors dot not wish to be named on such' a ticket. "As a result, If present plans that are approved by Colonel Roosevelt go tnrougn, tno present electors,, win re sign and be named by petition, upon a ticket that under the ,State law, will be headed by the name of Roosevelt, If the Taft forces'jwlsh to attempt'1 any. show of a contest they must have'new electors named by the State committee, which 1b practically solld;for Roosevelt. "To avoid legal difficulties, the can didates for State office's will run on the Republican ticket. They'are all Roose velt men, and thero is ro use of com plicating the situation. There are at present six candidates for the nomina tion for governor, and there is abso lutely no question that there will be a clean Republican sweep with all the electors for Roosevelt" ' When Colonel Roosevelt was asked re garding the Interview given by Lieu tenant uovernor uoraon, ne sum: "That's right. There Is no question that ail the Republicans In Minnesota are for me, and It Is merely necessary to prevent any apparance of electors being named under the ticket which, by State law, must be headed bv the nomi nees of the first Chicago convention." Roosevelt declined to discuss any ques tion as to how the acceptance of this plan In Minnesota might affect plans in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He Laughs About Bryan. When Seagirt dispatches to the effect that Gov. Woodrow Wilson intends to have W J. Bryan camp upon the Roose velt trail during the campaign and reply to the Roosevelt speeches were shown to him. the progressive leader laughed ror ruuy a minute, and men saio In masi convention yesterday and ae-Jna possible In tho euroundlng territory lected sixteen delegates, with half a vote-each, and a llko number of alter nates, to .the national progressive con vention nt Chicago August 6. Resolutions were adopted empowering a' committee of seven to select eight Presidential'' electors ''independent of thoso nnipod on tho Taft ticket, and de clared that', no elector now oruthe Taft ticket shall be placod on tho progres sive ticket unless ho first resigns. The significance, of this clause 'lies In 'the fact .that slxofnhe existing eleo- win uu iud xioiiuuuuau ucKet are IVOOSe- velt men. ' , Four Delegates-at-Laree. Colonel Carrlngton, ChaWesR. Schlrni, J. Stuart McDonald, and Joseph W. Wolflnger were named bb delegates-at-large. Besides providing for tho naming of the Independent electors, the resolutions denounced the action of tho Republican national committee for Its seating of fraudulent delegations; vigorously at tacked both of the old parties, on the ground that they are "bossridden" ,and cannot give' relief to the' people, and declared that the groat majority of Republicans in this Stater "knowing that the laws of Maryland will not per mit Theodore Roosevelt's name to be placed 'upon the, ballot under party designation containing the word Repub lican, they, are, nevertheless, willing to support hlmas their candidate for tho Presidency, without regard to the party name unuor wmen ne may run." Will 'Support Roosevelt. The delegates to the Chicago conven tion are instructed to vote in national convention on ayery ballot for Theodore Roosevelt for tno nomination of Presi dent, as well as to vote on all ques tions looking to the organization of said convention in such a manner as to pro mote his nomination. They are also directed to "participate In adopting a suitable party name and platform, n perfecting a national or ganization and in doing any and all things pertinent to such a convention for the promotion of the progressive Ideas of the people of the land and for the destruction of those special priv ileges accorded to the few to the Injury of the many. When Colonel Carrlngton. recognized Roosevelt leader in the State, as tem porary chairman, called the convention to order, lie read a telegram of greet ing from Colonel Roosevelt. The col onel extended his good wishes to tho convention, and declared that the new movement Is a movement for "genuine popular rule within each party, as well as regards governmental agencies them selves, and It Is also a movement for honesty and justice, political and In fer Gov.
