Blytbe, political writer for the Saturday Evening Post! In this week's issue, contributes his sec ond article on political conditions in the so-called "doubtful" sUtes. This article deals with conditions as he sees them in Indiana and Ohio. .Con cerning political affairs in Indiana he says, in part:, Indiana's Dark Horse. Indiana, a state where political con ditions are most unsettled, has a mild sort of a democratic presidential pos sibility In Governor Thomas R. Marsh all, who carried , the state against James Watson, in 1908, by about four teen thousand or such a matter, .while the republicans squeezed through with Tart by about ten thousand plurality. Of late, Indiana has been a fairly re liable republican state, but In the old days it was as nervous, politically, as a fox-terrier pup. It went for Tilden in' 1876 by a few thousand, for Gar field in 1880, for Cleveland In 1884, for , Harrison, an Indianian,.by a little more than two thousand, la 1888. for Cleveland in 1892, when Harrison ran again, and since that . time has been steadfastly republican, - until 1908. Roosevelt carried the state by over ninety-three thousand in 1904. . Hence, Marshall's winning by fourteen thou sand in 1908, when -Tsft got m by tea, thouandi was no smalls achleye- There will be no election for gover nor in Indiana until 1912, so Marshall will not have the chance Harmon has of showing whether he can repeat If he did have the chance and could re peat he would be much more of a pos sibility than he is. The Indiana democrats. " led by Thomas Taggart, : are fairly well to gether. There may be some protest ing brothers, but they are not so nu merous as to endanger the party's success if It can win at all. The re publican situation is rather favorable to democratic success. There Is great insurgent winy of the republican party, led 4iy Senator Albert J. Bever- ldge, who must be re-elected next winter by the new members chosen this fall, and by the twenty-five hold over senators. ' The state convention unanimously Indorsed Beveridge fof re-election, and his candidates for the legislature have been generally chos en. There is no doubt that Beveridge is in exact sympathy with the great bulk of the republicans in the state on the tariff and .on all other matters in dispute in congress. There is no doubt, either,, that -if. Beveridge could go before the people, to - be elected by direct vote, he would win handsom ely. '-tPM However, he must be re-elected by the legislature. Now, there is a wing of the republican party in Indiana that is bitterly opposed to Beveridge. This wing of the party, or, perhaps. pinion of the party, is led by former Senator James Hemenway, - former Representative James Watson, and by the other men who were leaders in the 1 Fairbanks-Hemenway machine. Their hatred of Beveridge is Implac able. They will go to any, lengths to defeat him. Not to put too fine an edge on it. that is the exact reason why the demo crats have such a good chance in In diana this fall, where the great stake Is the senatorshlp. Governor Marshall will get some reflected glory if the democrats carry the legislature and send in a demo crat in place - of Beveridge, for he jumped in , some weeks ago and de manded the state convention should indorse a democrat for senator. Tom Taggart. the democratic bees, appar ently, was opposed to this,' for it had bfen announced,' not by the. wily Tom but by others, that Taggart himself desired to be the democratic senator from Indiana if there should be one. There was a great kicking up of dust and a great apparent! conflict, and when it was all over it was found that the convention had indorsed John W. Kern the gentleman who , proceeded in a leisurely way to defeat as the taU to Bryan's kite in 1908 for that exalted position. Wet and Dry Complications. Whereupon there was much to do because Marshall had defeated ' Tag gart the vote was very close and be cause Taggart was down and out. and pure politics had prevailed. This was most interesting to . outsiders who knew that John Kern had always been a Taggart man, that it was Taggart who had Kern, named for vice presi dent at Denver, that their associations are close and intimates - mad that It (Continued on Pace' Tfcroev) i It Was Learned Today that the Insurgents Just Before Adjournment Had the Can Ready to Tie on Him.

"Uncle Joe Cannon Is rather "Cocky" , for an of ficer who missed being unfrocked in the closing hours of congress only by the merest chance. Democrats and Insurgents it was learned today, had the necessary votes to divest "Uncle Joe' of his powers for two weeks be fore the end of the session The in surgents had been conferring; they i talked over various plans and it was difficult to agree. Some wanted . to oust the speaker; others did not want to try it. "We will be beaten," said some of the insurgents. "We don't want to get rid of Cannon as an is sue," said others. "If we oust Uncle Joe some man will be elected in his place who is even more reactionary,' said others. The election of Walter Smith, of Iowa was especially fear-1 ed. . He Dodged the Trap. Without any definite , plan An view one of the insurgent leaders ; prepar ed a resolution declaring the chair I of the speaker vacant. - He had con sulted only a - few of his Insurgent colleagues. v It was reported that Can non was going to make a speech and I strike at the insurgents. That was the question. The situation was such that had the speaker attacked the in- has done in past speeches the -resolu tion to throw - him out of the speak- er's chair would have been sprung in-1 stanuy.4 The member who had the mAiiifii'h ,, b-. .... - u uses invncv - was. wailiua and hoping the speaker would invite fight by using Intemperate langu age about ' insurgency.

(Palladium Special) Martinsville, Ind., June 30. After agreeing to resolutions as finally draft ed at the First District Republican convention, two members of the reso lutions committee, Blankenbaker of Vi go and Hume of Hendricks, this morn ing announced they would refuse to sign the report because of a quotation it contained from the Beveridge state convention speech, regarding the dif ference in the cost of production be tween this country and Ehirope. These two members represented the anti- Beveridge faction r of the. convention, and had in-their possession copies of the platform sent -from Washington, I D.
