HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH LXXXIII — No. 80 A LEAGUE AS A PROTEST AGAINST RAMPANT BOSSISM Dauphin County Democratic League Makes Night Plunge Into Politics Here RED HOT RESOLUTIONS TOO indorse Ryan Within a Few Doors of the Democratic State Windmill Plant The Dauphin County Democratic League burst into the political arena last night as the latest protest against bossism in the Democracy of Pennsyl vania and created consternation in the ranks of the McCormick followers by n rincincr r»f hi« rival for indorse Ryan Within a Few Doors of the Democratic State Windmill Plant The Dauphin County Democratic League burst into the political arena last night as the latest protest against bossism in the Democracy of Pennsyl vania and created consternation in the ranks of the McCormick followers by a ringing endorsement of his rival for the Democratic nomination for gover nor, Michael J. Ryan. The organiza tion is said to be the prelude to the opening of headquarters for Ryan in tills city and the forerunner of a movement to have the Philadelphian come to make a speech in the home city of his rival. The meeting was held in the Bolton House and the machine Democrats did not become aware of it until it nas in full swing and it was too late TO "plant" someone in the sessions. McCormick men to-day displayed con siderable irritation in talking about the league, taking It as an effort to belittle the former mayor of Harris burg in his native city, but the more even tempered among them jeered at the organization, saying that if the men active in promoting it were not more successful in getting results with funds and organization at their com mand than they were on a certain delegate election day "not so many years ago, the league would not amount to much. Means Business, They Say Men Identified with the league an nounced last night and to-day that many names were being enrolled as members and that the great interest being shown in the new organization n'ae what was making the McCormick men bite themselves. One man said, "I think the formation of this or ganization with the active Democrats In it, pretty effectually disproves the «'laim of the noisy machinists that Ryan has no footing here. Unless 1 miss my guess the young man will have a tussle in his home city," An other said: "This organization is to be.a protest against Democratic boss ism at its fountain head. It means business." The meeting was held in the his toric old Democratic hotel, the Bol ton, and Alderman George D. Her bert, of the Eleventh ward, who is a Democrat who would get pen paraly sis If he tried to vote for a Republl-I can, presided. Then, very much to the subsequent pain of the machine men the following temporary officers were elected: President, A. W. Hart man: secretary, George M. Deiker; treasurer, ex-City Chairman Christian Nauss. Democratic Regular? Among the names of those form ing the membership are B. F. Meyers, ex-Mayor John A. Fritchey, Dr. C. Albert Fritchey, national delegate to the Baltimore convention; Milton H. Plank, candidate for Congress; Milton G. Robinson, of the railroad train men's legislative committee; William K. Meyers, former division chairman, and former County Commissioner Wil liam W. Wallower, and a lot of others. The following resolution indorsing j Michael J. Ryan for governor was' adopted unanimously: "The signs are auspicious for Dem •fratic victory in Pennsylvania. Irre concilable differences among the Re publicans make the future of that party hopeless. The failure of the Roosevelt party to meet the require ments of the times offers no remedy from that source. These are the greater reasons why Democrats shou'd select their best man to lead to the victory that is plainly In view. "We recognize in Michael J. Rvan Rn ideal leader in this emergency.

Nothing Can Be Accomplished if They Keep Their Promise to Discuss Matters i DANIELS SOUGHT WITHDRAWAL I ' New Jersey Man Asked Wilson to Drop His Name, But Was Met With Refusal By Associated Press Washington, D. C., April 4.—lnter | est in legislation on the Senate side of i the Capitol lagged to-day while sena ! tors discussed the attitude of nine of their number who are in open re- I volt against meetings behind closed I doors except for consideration of for | eign relations. The revolt, led by Senator LaFollette, came last night during a heated executive session In which the Senate by a vote of 36 to 27 confirmed the nomination of Win thrc M. Daniels as a member of th<j Interstate Commerce Commission. With Senators LaFollette, Cummins, Kenyon, Norris, Bristow, Clapp, Jones, Gronna and Poindexter promising to talk publicly and freely about all do mestic matters considered in executive session in future, it was conceded that virtually nothing could be accom plished by closing the Senate's doors to the public and the press. There i was much speculation as to whether the senators would hold to their posl- I tion, and whether an effort to ma-1 terially alter the rules would result. It was understood that no one con templated an attempt to have the senators disciplined for violating the rules of secrecy. Daniels Closes Contest The confirmation of Mr. Daniels closed a contest that had occupied , the Senate for four days and which was marked by one of the bitterest de bates ever heard in the upper house of Congress. Opponents of confirma tion objected to Mr. Daniels' views on the valuation of public utility prop erty as demonstrated in the decision of the New Jersey Public Utility mission of which he was chairman, in the Passaic gas rate case. They claim ed that the gas company's property warf over-valued and that a man, whose ideas led him to join in such a decision should not be placed upon the Interstate Commerce Commission particularly at this time when the commission is beginning a valuation of the country's railroads. Confirmation of Daniels, after the: notable three days' Senate fight, was, followed to-day by the revelation that Mr. Daniels asked President Wilson; to withdraw his name and thus stop | the contest, which ho believed to be > embarrassing the President, and that] Mr. Wilson refused.

Do nothing to push one against the other, but keep care -1 ful note of the sales and the In quiries.
