Psogressive Senators May
stand together upon politi

Bull Moose Party Going
To Pieces in Western
WASHINGTON, Jan. 1913.
Without any brass-band accompan
iment and entirely apart from pro
posed national get-together con
ventions, plans for the reorganiza
tion of the. Republican party by the
progressives arc going forward here.
The work is being done behind the
scenes, so to speak, in the United
States. Nothing tangible is ex
pected to show until the new Con
gress gets to work, but then the
progressive control is to be develop
ed through pushing to the front
leaders like Borah, LaFollette,
Cummins and Hristow in the tariff
That the Repubiican cause is look
ing up that things are in far bet
tcr shape than they appeared to be
a month or more ago is the con
sensns of opinion now being ex
pressed in the cloakrooms. Pro
gressive senators, each reporting
for his respective political and gco-prnphii-nl
section, are telling of sub
sidence of the third party move
ment in the middle and farther
western States. Progresive Repub
licans now occupying the Senate
field think tlint they will be able to
handle affairs in their States so as
to present practically a solid trout
in the congressional campaign two
years hence and in the president al
campaign of 191G.
It is now predicted that there
will be only one out-nnd.out, last
ditch bull mooscr in the Senate af
ter March 4-, Poindexter, of Wash
ington Dixon of Montana will
retire withtue i resent Congress.
Bristow o 1 Ktttfgs. who never
would admit that he had . left the
Republican party, is expectrdto pull
harmoniously with the other pro
gresMve Republicans when matters
shape up tor the battles directly
ahead, and Clnpp of Minnesota
again is counted in the undivided
progressive group.
Senator Cummins and Kenxon
have reported that the third parly
movement in Iowa already has
Inst so much ground that is tin
longer'is formidable. In Wisconsin
La Follettr, who wiil cut a large
figure in the comini; tariff struggle,
partily because ol his finance coi
mi t tec membership, is expected to
handle ttie Wisconsin situation, and
his mixup with Governor McGov
cm is counted on to help rather
than hinder the work in hand.
Senator LaFollette will stand ah
the "regular" party leader in the
Itndger State, while the governor,
who seems to have taken up the
Roosevelt cause and to have staked
his political future on its ultimat
success, will be allowed to make the
most of his position The opinion
here is that La Folletta is getting
MclJovern into the very corner he
wants him in order to control the
Kepub'ican organization.
Ivven in nhlornia, where the
third party movment was particu
lnrly strong, there is a teactiou
which will bring the Republican
party in line lor tuture action, ac
cording to Senator Works of that
State. In Pennsylvania and other
eastern Stutes where the Roosevelt
sentiment cut a large figure in the
last election, the Progressives are
rallying to the task ol getting con
trol of the Republican organization
as Republicans for corporation

. oftbtreit of the country accord

On Lincoln day, Feb. 12, there
nrc to be speeches before organiza
tions in large cities all over the
country which are expected to
sound the battle cry of the pro
gressive Republicans for the cam
paigns two and four years distant.
Senators will participate in tlusc
The 101G presidential nomination
question is likely to become one of
immediate interest following tho-c
Lincoln day functions and othns
that will come a little later. In
this connection it may be said tlint
the presidential star of Sennicr
Borah of Idaho already is attract
ing. attention. La l-ollette general
ly is regarded as a candidate if the
situation is favorable to him, hut
the Idaho Senator's qualifications
are receiving consideration in cir
cles to which the past radicalism o
tlis Wisconsin statesman docs not
appeal as strongly as it might.
Senator Horah is to deliver an
address at Baltimore on Lincoln
day on "The organization of the
Republican Party." Following that
he has engagements to make a seri
cs of speeches throughout the South
all of them political in character,
and these, together with ppteches
by other senators, in connection
with Hie spring work cut out for
the progressives in the halls ol Con
gress, will mark the opening of the
rehabilitation campaign.
The reason whj ' little has been
done in the open thus lar, with re
spect to the unfolding of progressive
plans to recrganize and control the
Republican party, is that it hn
been deemed advisable to remain
quiescent until the present adminis
tration expired. The 12th of Feb
oratory, therefore, will be a son
of prelude to the energetic activities
scheduled to tnke form after March
3. President Taft then will ha ve
ceased to he the titular leader o
the Republican pnrtv. The field
will be open to those who aspire to
leadership ol the vacancy.
Opposition to President Taft, ful
ly as much as any pcrsonalt regard
for Colonel Roosevelt, impelled
many of the Progressive leaders to
antagonize the Republican ticket
lnsi fall. With Taft out of office
however, the situation will he di
lerent; the Senate progressives who
have opposed him will feel more
comfortable i n their respective
pi. ices and it is then that they ex
pect the lilies to show n solid front
Then they will assert their leader
ship in Congress, and issue challenge
to any conservative who tnnv wan'
to contest for future control.
It is a significant tact however,
that even many ol the confer vm
tives admit that the next nationa
battle is liktlv to have a leiuh
whnse prouressivencss is recognize
by the country. The present pre
grcsMvts will strive to have ih
conservatives accept their lender
ship without another intrn-pariv
fittht. But, light or no fight, tin
pr gressives arc getting ready lot

tcresting article upon the waking
up of New York City, and, com
ments very favorably upon the part
played by our lormer townsman

The motion wns made by counsel

at 3:20 o'clock in the afternoon,
riie arguments on the motion con
sumed but little time. The jury
was allowed to go to its rooms and
the motion was argued in the pri
vate office of ludge Kerr.
ludge Barker led off in making
arguments on the motion declaring
that there had not been any evidence
addueed to show that there was a
conspiracy on the part of the de
fendants to intimidate Webb or in
any way harm him. Judge Barker
declared that Webb had voluntarily
vone into the room with s.mc of
the delendants and that others fol
lowed. udge Barker aid the stu
dents were simply trying to fiind
out something in which the whole
student body was vitally interested.
As soon as the verdict finding the
delendants not guilty was signed

cipal street in Cyutliinna.
