TXATW Ill TUESDAY WILL BE A MOMENFOUS ONE Necessity of Defeating Pres ent Democratic Governor to Kill His Presidential Boom Realized. THE GUBERNATORIAL NOMINEE UNDECIDED Today There Are Apparently Only Three Really in the RaceThompson and Hard ing, and 0. Brown. (American News Service) Columbus, O., July 3. Representa tive republicans from all parts of Ohio lira gathering here today or the stau convention or the party, which will as somb!e tomorrow to nominate a state ticket and adopt a platform-for the fall campaign. The large number of early arrivals on the field indicates a record breaking attendance of visitors and reflects the extraordinary amount u public Interest attached to the con vention this year. The Importance attached to the con vention in Ohio Is due to two princi pal causes. The first Is that the pres ident or the United States and the titu lar head of the party in power; comes t:om this state. Then, as a second rea son, the republican leaders of the state recognize the necessity of defeating Judson Harmon for another term as governor In order that he may not be come a formidable figure for the demo cratic presidential nomination In 1912. Governor Harmon baa already been re nominated and If he should be re elected, he would undoubtedly be a strong figure at the next democratic presidential convention. If defeated oe would not be. ' The Ohio republi can leaders would not like to see the presidential campaign with William H. Taft of Ohio and Judson Harmon of Ohio leading the two tickets, especial ly If Harmon should be made govern or twice. So they are bent on ac complishing his political downfall this time. , ' For nearly a year the party leaders have been on a hunt for a man to de feat Harmon. During that time the names of a doien or more republicans have been mentioned In connection with the head of the ticket and count ed out Representative Nicholaa Long- worth, ex-Secretary of the Interior James R. Garfield. Judge Taylor of Cleveland, and others have been In cluded In the list. Only Three Entries. On the eve of the convention the race has narrowed down to three erf tries Carml Thompson of Ironton, secretary of state; Warren O. Hard ing of Marion, former lieutenant gov ernor, and Judge O. B. Brown, a Judge of the common pleaa court of Dayton. . Of the three, Harding possesses the most pronounced elements of personal strength. His popularity, generally speaking. Is unquestioned, and his ora tory has spread his fame to every nook and corner of the state. But, on, the other hand, his open advocacy of prohibition Is not to the liking of all republicans, especially those in the large cities. The chief strength of Carml Thompc eon Is In his home district and In his manner of picking off unattached del egates to the convention. As secre tary of state he has made a good rec ord, r The chances of Jurge Brown, the third of the trio of leading candidates for the gubernatorial nomination, are today regarded brightest of them all. He la the choice of George B. Cox, the republican boea of Cincinnati, and with the combinations affected by Cox In the way of trading support for ether places on the state ticket It Is believed Brown will have a lead on the first ballot.
