LOUIS, Mo., July 10.—Thomas Taggait, of Indiana, today was indorsed by the Democratic national committee for chairman of that body. . \ r The indorsement was a compromise between the Parker ' : forces and the ultra-Taggart men. The supporters of the In diana man insisted upon his election at today's meeting, but the friends of the presidential nominee refused to agree to v his selection until after a conference -with Judge Parker. . As a compromise measure, it was decided to give Tag gart the committee's indorsement, and then if his selection is agreeable to Judge-Parker,- to elect him to the chairmanship of ;. the national committee, at a meeting to be held mi New; York at the call of Chairman Jones, of the old committee. HOLDS MORNING SESSION The national committee, now in its makeup, met at 2:0O o'clock this morning and again at 4 o'clock this afternoon with the avowed intention on behalf of the supporters of Taggart, of. Indiana, of organizing by electing him chairman. . The early morning meeting was not fully attended, and the object aimed at was not accomplished. It was pointed out by Mr. Mack, of New York, that it would be discourteous to take any action until Mr. Parker, as the candidate, was consulted. The Taggart men, while not having enough to elect, still suggested that Mr. Hill, Mr. Sheehan and Mr. Belmont, the candidate's friends, were still here and adopted a resolution, that they be invited to meet the committee this afternoon. ACTION IS BLOCKED When afternoon came there were three new complica tions in the way of electing. Chairman Jones, of the old com mittee, boldly asserted that such action as contemplated would be unprecedented, and, in fact, illegal. It also turned out that at a late hour the convention adopted a resolution authorizing Chairman Jones, of the old committee, to call the new committee .together in New York city srfr such time as he might suggest. Then the other thing was that Senator Hill and Mr. Shee han left for New York at noon and could not therefore attend the meeting. Senator James K. Jones, the retiring chairman of the na tional committee, made this statement: "The national convention by specific resolution adopted last night, authorized me, in fact, instructed me, to call the first meeting of the new committee in New York city. Until I. call it the new committee cannot organize and meetings they have are unauthorized. Now, let me say, forcibly, if need be, that acting under the convention authority I call the national committee to meet in New York city at such time as Judge Parker shall designate, for before I call it I shall consult him. It would be an unprecedented thing for the new committee to organize without consultation with the candidate. Such a tiling was never heard of."
