The Socialist vote is being regarded a. a factor In the dee'. Ion. That Wil son will get the most radical votes and Roosevelt next, with Delis polling the largest Socialist vole ever cast, is the way the situation is outlined to Taft.

A nation-wide movement to petition President Taft to withdraw as the Republican presi dential candidate is being hacked by; a large number of Republican office holders who feel that they face defeat in November unless the breach ia Ilia party can be healed. H These men include members of con gress, members of state legislature which will elect senators, state and county officers and party candidates. If the movement to petition Mr. Taft to withdraw succeeds in. gaining any, volume, it is said these same men, in the interest of party harmony may, ask Col. Roosevelt also to withdraw a a prospective candidate for an inde pendent nomination and permit a com promise selection of some manaeep able to handle both factions of thu purty. It is the desire o' the promot ers of the scheme that a decision, shall be reached before August a, who", the Roosevelt faction plans to bold convention in Chicago. The circulation of petitions, it wa declared Monday, will he started with in a week. It was said Hie movement woe'd begin spontaneously ill every, state. The organizers now are circu lating bank forms of petitions and ap pointing supervisors, who iu turn, will engage canvassers to solicit tho signa tures of Republicans. The authors of the plan expect to offer to practically every Republican voter in the United, Slates a chalice to express hi3 opin ion of Mr. Taft's candidacy. The movement is in ihe hands of several well known members ot con gress. They are being aided by many, f tie el'tisuneiu ol liio national pro- essivo organization in tUo move- f teul hun been sough; and iL was aiat- d Monday that Senator Dixon's ou ani.ation is willing to co-operate. Information that the peti'ions Veral e be put he! ore the Vetera leaked out Monday. No particular person is a'l- iiority for the statement and lueni- t rs ef congaftd concerned were un- villiiig o stand sponsors tor it until the movement is under way. In the circulation of tho anti-Tuft petitions an effort will bo made to get them signed by organization Republi cans and others who have stood wit li the president, as well as by citizen i who have occupied neutral ground. There will he no special effort mada to get progressive Republican signa tures as it is believed that to conhn'j the petitions to tiiat taction would en compass tiie defeat of the movement. Those behind the plan s'.y one. of its first results will be to let Mr. Taft; know if there arc titty considerable number of regular Republicans who believe he should ttep aside la the in terest of harmony.
