That the machine politicians!
hope to use Mayor Taylor as a
catspaw to pull their chestnuts!
out of the fire started by the graft
prosecution and fanned into a de
vastating blaze by the popular
vote at the primary election is in
dicated by the developments of a
week- Immediately after the pri
mary elections Taylor was dis
missed by the recognized machine
politicians as an impossible candi
date. He was put in a class with
James D. Phelan, and a sad croco'-
Haile^«aF -*was~dr opped " over^his
premature political grave: •\u25a0 Then
a change came over, the dreams
of the manipulators." Taylor sud
denly loomed up as the man, backed
by a tremendous popular demand for
his continuation in office.
That there Is a popular demand for
the election of Taylor is beyond ques
tion. What its exact proportions are
Is a different matter and one extremely
difficult to estimate with any degree
of accuracy. That the men who have
so recently heard the popular clamor
are in fact with the people or with
Taylor is not so difficult to determine.
They have Joined their yelps with the
cries for Taylor. They are glad to
humor for a time the people who want
Taylor, because it may serve their pur
poses. The nomination and election of
Taylor are farther from their
A row in the ranks of the republican
leaguers who will control the local
convention would best serve the pur
poses of the men who were whipped
cither in person or In their representa
tives at the primary polls. There will
be 149 delegates in the republican con
vention. They will not ail be regular
republican league delegates. The forty
first district delegation, which beat out
the committee's ticket, was not put out
by the league, nor wer% the delegations
from the twenty-eighth, twenty-ninth,
forty-fourth and forty-fifth. Fred Eg
gers elected his three delegates in the
thirty-sixth. There are on the deie
gations \u25a0 from , the thirty-seventh,
thirty-eighth and thirty-ninth a few
who can hear the Esspee whittle. Col
lectively they represent a minority of
about 40 In a convention of 149.
Some of them have said ' nothing.
Their orders have not come "through.
More of them have talked Taylor and
a few really mean Taylor. A ma
jority of them do not mean Taylor at
all. and some have not been clever
enough to conceal that fact. .Taylor's
name has been the most convenient
method of stirring up the desired row.
The lack of sincerity of these- men
is. admirably illustrated by the char
acter of. the sources from which" they
draw their ammunition. Postmaster
Arthur Fisk is for Taylor. iCad Fisk
won In the primary fight he might
not havei^een so enthusiastically for
Taylor. iKit he is neither a delegate
nor a controlling factor in the repub
lican convention. %He is accordingly
for Taylor. g^f
The entire subsidized weekly press
that has «o. valiantly, fought for the
bribe givers and unloaded weekly car
goes of abuse upon . the graft prosecu
tion is for Taylor now. The convention
is a September function! The Taylor
boom? has indeed reached Los Angeles,
where General "Otis and his Times \u25a0 are
for Taylor. The Times is not a recog
