G. 0. P. TANGLE THICKENS WITH 7 STATES TO GO Each Primary Only Adds to Confusion of Who’s Who Among Candidates. By WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS, International News Service. WASHINGTON, May 6 All but seven states have held their conven tions or primaries for the selection of 831 of th§ total of 984 delegates to the big caucus at Chicago sched uled to begin four weeks from next Tuesday. Yet almost unparalleled confusion as to who’s who among the G. O. P. candidates for the presidential nomi nation is the dominant feature of the situation. Colorado holds its state convention to day. Monday Wyoming will follow suit. On May 18 Pennsylvania will hold a presidential preference primary and next day Alabama will have a convention. Oregon follows with a primary May 21, then Texas, May 25: West Virginia. Mar 25. and Vermont, May 26. will wind op the season, the seven states selecting the remaining 153 delegates to make up the total. But nothing can happen in any of these states materially to change the status quo. From now on the struggle will not be so much to capture delegates before the convention meets as to obtain a strong strategic position in the convention itself. FOCR STATES HAVE TWO SETS OF DELEGATES. A fight over the temporary chairman ship is in prospect. Another is expected as a result of the contest to seat some of the delegations, two full sets already having been se lected in Florida, South Carolina, Georgia and Mississippi, while other dis putes are in the offing. nota"b!y over the Louisiana. .Oklahoma, Tennessee and Vir ginia delegates. And perhaps there will be others. But these scrimmages, it .Is believed, will be mere outpost affairs compared to the series of battles between candi dates now maneuvering for position.

He refused to stay out of states claimed by favorite sons and the “regu lars” Insist that the convention shall be "regular” if anything. Senator Boise Penrose, republican >ad*r. sitting in Philadelphia, has vir tually given the thumbs down sign on Senator Hiram Johnson, opposing to the latter Senator Philander Knox also of Pennsylvania. Like the senator from California, Knox opposed the league of nations, hut be is a “regular” which Johnson has not been since he boited the party w!tu Theodore Roosevelt in 1912. Johnson, they claim, is a “radical” in stead of a "regular" and the “regulars” are afraid Herbert Hoover, likewise, according to Senator Penrose, could never be nomi nated by any republican convention. Senator Warren G. Harding of Ohio ie said to have eliminated himself by win ning a bare plurality In his native state of Ohio and by running Jsst in .the In diana primaries of TflP&iay f while Gov. Lowden of Illinois- is still con sidered in the tunning as a compromise candidate BORAH RESEWS DEMASD FOR I SQUIRT Washington. May An exhaustive probe of the allege*! misuse of campaign funds of Gen.

ASSAILS CLOSING OF ERIE STREET Transfer Man Says Shippers Will Lose SIOO,OOO a Year. A sudden decision by the board of pub lic works to close Erie street against truck traffic to railroad freight houses In the center of the city w*ill cost shippers *IOO.OOO a year, according to a statement issued today by William G. Krels, presi dent of the Indianapolis Transfer associa tion. “The board's action shows fliat whether it be under a Bell democratic administration or a Jewett republican ad ministration the railroads get what they want at the expense of the citizens.” said Mr. Krels. ’ “When New Jersey and Alabama 1 streets were closed three blocks were left without a gateway that would per mit hauling of freight by trucks to freight houses to the north and south of the tracks.” DISTANCE INCREASED BY DETOVRING. Detours by way of East street and Virginia avenue entailed added distance to the movement of 200 tons of freight each day. according to an actual sur vey. Mr. Kreis said, the expense amount -1 nugto SIOO,OOO a year. “Erie street was opened,” he said, "as a result of a conference attended by Mayor Jewett, Corporation Counsel Ash by. City Engineer I.ingenfelder and rep resentatives o fthe Chamber of Commerce and the railroads.
