(Copyright by The Reformer.) CHICAGO, June 15. Harry Daugherty made a mistalke. Three months ago as a ' canipaign manager for Warren G. Harding, he prer.icted that about 2.11 a. m., 'in a smoke-filled room," , on a cer tain night during the Republican national convention, the next nominee would be chosen. His mistake was on the time it was 3.11 a. m. That conference will go down in the history of politics as the final breakdown of the American primary system so far as select inir presidential . nominers is concerned.- -Henntwr- Harding had carried his own state in the primaries only with the greatest difficult v and did not figure prominently in the nominating campaign in, any other state. Messrs. Wood and Johnson carried many a state, but were sidetracked by the leaders of the Repub lican party and Mr. Harding was chosen because he was the only man upon wnom an agreement could be reached. Many a prominent man was present at the fateful conference. Representa tives of all the candidates were on hand, several senators, managers and friends. Col. George Harvey had the historic room together with Thomas W. Lamont of J. '. Morgan & Co. ill Hays, the na tional chairman, and several of the na tional committeemen were there, too. J-.vervbodv had the feehnjr that, a president was being chosen for the expec tation of victory in November was sure It was the plan of the old guard to nomi nate Lowden, but the Missouri expose on campaign expenditures -4 together with the threat of Hiram Johnson and Sena tor Borah of opposition to , the ticket prevented the Illinois executive from getting the prize. Really, Senator John Mn vetoed ioth Lowden and Wood and the leaders of the party decided upon Harding as the most unobjectionable of all the dark horses mentioned. Of course, if Johnson had consented to run for vice-president with Knox, the junior senator from Pennsylvania today would be the Republican nominee. Word was sent to Senator Johnson during the early hours of the morning asking him to go on the ticket with Knox, but he absolutely refused. So the old guard decided on Harding. Tales galore are going the rounds about the dark horses held in reserve. There seems to be no question about the fact that Senator Penrose would have made a drive for Knox at the psycholo gical moment if he could have done it. And there is a well-substantiated story he complimenting nie - on how weir J and strong ;l Cam 4ookinc." said Mrs,-1Er nest Mumf ord s living "on Main Street Vst Rutland. Vermont, while tellinz.

To add to my troubles I became so ner vous that even the children playing around the lionse worried me. and al choice was made, but already they are though I took many medicines I didn't beginning to be converted., 1 he situation seem to get any better. is best illustrated by an incident in the T read so many statements in th lobby of the Blackstone hotel yesterday papers about Tanlac and heard so many when a woman, wno naa supported tnc others talkinc about it that I thought candidacy ot U-onaru Wood, remarked: jt best to give it a trial, and I'm cer after 'Kansas hadrvotetl, word -was sent again to the Kansas delegation that it was deemed best'to nanjef ,thep penatol from' Wisconsin for resuons 'of party expediency. . Senator Medfll McCormick made the nomuiating speech for Lenroot but even the Lenroot boom was deflated suddenly, this time by xq. wish ' of the old guard. -A --MM , '. - 5 ' : Somebody in Oregon nominated Cool idge and Alexander Moore jumped ,lo his feet and seconded it in "behalf of Penn sylvania. All through the day the 7i votes from Pennsylvania . had been watched as the keystone of the conven tion itself. The delegates believed it must be the wish of. Penrose. It wasn't. But in the confusion, and in the desire to get the convention over with, delega tion after delegation voted for Coolidge. As. usual there were expressions ot disappointment over the selection of the presidential nominee. Progressives talked bitterly for a few hours after the Well, I. am not reconciled yet. "Ah, that's why we have conventions in June and not September," answered a Republican editor who is himself a pro gressive. The fact is there are probably more Republicans 'who dislike the Wilson ad ministration or anything that savors ot a prolongation of it than there are Re publicans who dislike Warren (!. Hard ing. Slowly the disappointment will bo worn awav by. processes of political at trition that make- for solidarity in most campaigns, it is too early to say what Hiram Johnson will do. He will not, though, lsdt the ticket. '.He will prob ably do his share in stumping California but he probably will not go elsewhere He is known to be deeply disappointed but far from bitter over the result. Tie will be regular but he will make little effort, in my judgment, to deliver his own strength to the Republican ticket, the strength which he marshaled in the primaries. For one thing, he couldn't deliver it because in' moments of confu sion, the Republican resolutions com mittee omiueu irom tne piattorm a plank sympathizing with the cause of Irish freedom. Many of Johnson's fol lowers were Irish-Americans. The Dem ocrats will probably insert an Irish plank and hold many of their Irish vots. The Republican managers, ' however, are confident that this will not affect their chances for success in November. They are as sure of victory as if inaug uration daywre tomorrows ( The cam paign "will 1m ah'otd-fasliioned one.
