paign. HOLD PRIMARIES TODAY
All Candidates Say They Have Mary
land Delegates Cinched.
Baltimore, May 6. Today's pri
mary election iu Maryland will de
cide the votes of the 16 delegates
this state will send to the na
natlonnl conventions. The Importance
of the election is increased by the
fact that tho law permits no divided
delegation. A victory In Maryland
will mean 1C delegates all In a block,
bound to support the candidate for
whom they are instructed until they)
conscientiously believe he no longer
has a chance of winning the nomina
tion. While this feature of the instruc
tions has been variously interpreted,
it Is without dispute conceded to hold
tho delegates at least for the flrst
ballot at the national conventions.
The names of Theodore Roosevelt
and President Taft appear on the
Republican ballot, while the Demo
crats have tho privilege of voting for
Speaker Champ Clark, Governor Jud
son Harmon or Governor Woodrow
Wilson.
President Taft's supporters expect
to carry all tho southern and eastern
counties and at least part of Balti
more. The Roosevelt leaders say
they are sure of the western part of

the state and confident of winning all
the 28 delegates from Baltimore city.
Speaker Clark is backed here by
the regular Democratic city organiza
tion and his supporters count on all
tho city delegates and enough from
outside to control the convention. A
statement by the Wilson committee
counts on 7S delegates, or 13 more
than the required majority. It is con
ceded that the New Jersey gover
nor's strength lies mainly In the
country districts. Goernor Harmon's
candidacy has been backed by the
anti-organization Democrats, who
claim for him a Jarge plurality In the
counties and have been making a
good fight in Baltimore.

Judge Archbold Charged With

HOUSE WILL PROBE
ARCHBOLD CHARGES
Against Judge.
Washington, May 6. The house
committee on Judiciary, which has
been authorized to determine whether
the charges against Judge Robert W.
Archbold of the United States com
merce court warrant Impeachment
proceedings, indicated its intention
of undertaking the inquiry without
delay. In fact subpenas already have
been Issued for all the witnesses who
may be able to throw light upon the
reported sale by the Erie railroad to
Edward J. Williams of Scranton. Pa.,
and Judge Archbold of culm banks in
Pennsylvania.
Williams has been quoted as say
ing that he had been unable to pur
chase the Erie railroad interest in
these culm banks until after he had
taken Judge Archbold In as an equal
partner and Judge Archbold had had
a talk with Vice President Brownell.
According to Williams the Erie then
agreed to sell its share in the culm
banks for $3,300. Other interests in
the culm banks were purchased by
Williams, who Is quoted as saying
that h6 and Judge Archbold were to
have made a profit of about $30,000
from the sale of the entire culm
banks to the Lackawanna & Wyo
ming Valley Railroad company.
The report which Attorney General
Wickcrsham had made in the case at
the request of President Taft does
not, it is understood, contain any
conclusions. If the full committee de
cides that the evidence warrants im
peachment proceedings. Chairman
Clayton of the house judiciary com
mittee will be instructed to arise on
his honor as a member of the house
and declaro that charges have been
preferred which warrant action by
the house.
The charges against Judge Archbold
would then be embodied In a resolu
tion of the highest privilege, which
would have to be passed by a two
thirds vote of the house. If the res
olution wore passed seven managers
would bo appointed by the house to
prosecute the case before the United
States senate, which sits as a court.
Judge Archbold would be entitled to
be represented by counsel before the
senate. The practice In impeachment
proceedings hns been to have the
trial by the senate with the least pos
sible delay.
