Illinois Delegation Will Be
Handed to Uncle Joe Cannon
Springfield, 111., March 25.—Illinois
is to be placed on a golden platter
metaphorically speaking, and pre
sented to "Uncle Joe" Cannon to
morrow, with the best wishes of the
Republican political managers, from
governor, senators and congressmen
down to the ward leaders. Tomor

j which will be called to order here at

i well-oiled and apparently in the best

j Governor Deneen, Senators Hop
I kins and Cullom and Mayor Busse of
j Chicago have been decided on as the

j much opposition to this program.
The convention will he composed of

friends of Secretary Taft, while
admitting that Cannon men will con
trol tomorrow's convention, declare
that a great many of the delegates
congressional districts will
swing to Taft if the Cannon boom is
punctured in the national convention.
The peculiar situation which exists
in the gubernatorial campaign bas
Deneen is a candidate for re-elec
tion, and has made a tentative work
ing agreement with Cannon. Many
of Deneen's friends are suspected of -
being for Taft, hut they dare not say
so, because Cannon's friends hold the
whip hand. *
The Cannon delegates must be se
lected before the middle of April,
while the delegates which wiil nomi
nate a governor will not be selected
until August. If the Cannon forces
are defeated in their object of getting
the state delegation in the national
convention, and decided to hold the
Deneen men responsible, they can
punish Deneen in the August prima
ries. The Deneen men, therefore, are
almost compelled to "deliver the
goods" to Cannon in advance.
Although Taft and other candi
dates have many friends in IUiqpis,

the state committee in indorsing

approval of a majority of the Repub
