" HKebeofk Is Clever. Considerable of a flurry has fol lowed the brilliant move by which Prank Hitchcock, leader of the Wood forces, secured control of the credentials committee. This veteran politician quietly went to work In each delegation three days sgo sad saw to it that one of his own men was selected by each state to sit on that credentials commit tee. With a majority of 30 out of 41 members, Mr. Hitchcock would Vi state to unseat many Lowden delegates who had been previously I mitsd by the national committee. Bat while he Is worrying Tobiai Hart, the Lowden general, the lat ter will surely carry the fight to the loor of the convention if Hitch cock does attempt rudely to throw nt Lowden delegates. Neverthe IfM a blow has been suffered by Meisrs. Hert and Will Hays which nay affect their prestige in the convention and correspondingly Mr. Hitchcock's stock as a leader has raw op.

Their Favorites in Order Shown Makm ioOan go furthtr Bring morm quickfy Invmtigatm our Budget Plan Parallel with the strategy where by th Wood tore routed tha Low den manager In the credentials committee w another nor th sig nificance of which will be appent aa it is unfolded. Will Hay, who la suspected by the Wood forces of being too friendly to Lowden, was deserted at the last moment In hia attempt to make 8tato Senator Og den Mill chairman . of the resolu tion committee which draft the platform. That old guard veter an. Senator Jim Watson of Indiana, took a fall out of hi rival, Will Hay, by rolling Mill overboard with a vote of 40 to I. Now where did Mr. Watson get such an over whelming majority and how did Will Hay com to have so little Influence in the choice of a chair man of resolutions committee? The answer is simply that Frank Hitchcock threw the support of all the Wood delegates on the resolu tions committee to Senator Watson. Mr. Mills had counted on the help of Leonard Wood delegates but he was beaten by the old guard with out trouble. For back of Senator Watson Indeed back of every sena tor in this fight 1 Senator Pen rose of Pennsylvania, who through the medium of a long distance wire and trusted lleutenanta la simply soankln the new "old guard" and teaching them lessons in practical politic which they will not noon forget. Now to the nominee, again one must turn t the senior senator from Pennsylvania for the answer. Hi statement that the Republicans must nominate a man who can win and only one who la aure to win waa of course being construed by the supporters of each, candidate to mean their own men but the writer ' has the highest authority for the statement that Senator Pen rose believes the following men could win If nominated: Senator Hiram Johnson but be can't be nominated. kkq jy gov. (Aa cartooned : by Setterfleld) Herbert Hoover but he can't be nominated. Philander C Knox and he can be nominated only if Senator John son agree to accept him and ran as vie president. Governor Sproul of Pennsyl vania. There la no doubt in my mind that th "old guard" 1 very friendly to Johnson and believes him a re markable vote-getter but they know that the delegate from eastern state and the business men la oth er delegations an absolutely op posed to him. Even if the old guard wanted to do it, they are powerless without the aaaent of the conservative business men who are the backbone of th Republican party. Big businese Is represented here. The most Influential banker and captains of Industry are con ferring. Friends of Johnson are doing all they can in an effort to convince big bosinee that there la nothing to fear from an adminis tration by Hiram Johnson. Only a concrete speech on the subject to the convention would help matter In that direction, and it is hardly likely that the California senator would risk such an appeal. Not Real Friends. Yet the friendliness of certain members of th old guard to John son must not be misconstrued. They are beating Wood with Lowden, they will beat Lowden with John son, then they will let the conven tion eliminate Johnson and when the California senator la honestly convinced that a genuine effort has been made by the leaders to nomi nate htm, the expectation tf those leaden Is that he will play ball with them in the selection of a compromise candidate. If he doesnt play ball, they will go ahead without him and nominate their own man anyway.' For this convention Is in the hands of Sen ator Penrose, Senator Watson, Senator Wadsworth. Senator Moses, Senator r Lodge, former Senator Crane. Newcomers like Will Hays and Tobias Hert on the one hand and supposed intruder like Frank Hitchcock on the other hand have been straggling for control only to have the bone snatched away by the veteran old leaders. The new eld guard has been displaced by the real old guard who are wisely permitting the big three Lowden. Wood and Johnson to grind each other to pieces so that the veteran politicians can select the next Re publican nominee and possibly the next president of the United States. At present writing it looks as if General Wood will show splendid strength on the first two or three ballots, will then begin to break as Lowden takes the lead, and then Johnson will make a final effoit af ter which the nomination of Gover nor Sproul or Senator Knox or any other member of the dark horse coterie will be in order. has executed an effective maneuver on hia own behalf. He felt hia del egates In certain states slipping away from him. , It was o. mly avowed by folk from Michigan. Nebraska and Oregon that although their states voted for Johnson, the delegates wouldn't stay hitched very long. Mr. Johnson now nas a pledge from the Mtehigri Ide-l gates who are Instructed for him to continually cast their ballots for him until he personally releases them, Johnson, by th iy, la his own campaign manager her. He take advice freely but do i he please about acting on it His game is to hold his i eagre fortes together whil. the Wood r low den machine crash each other. Doping against hope that he will be the beneficiary la th end. Also the California senator figure that if the convention mmoorta him on the League of Nations nlatform fight, he will r-T, delegates. Cer tainly If the treaty and agu are repudiated. Johnson would be the logical nomlr v- rh in that event the wise old '-adrs re cal culating that Knox for president and Johnson for vice president would be a more acceptable ticket, especially if Johnson rould ac cept the vice president. . The de sire to get harmony would tran scend every other consider-Jon. The mere fact that Johnson wnnM agr j to run with Knox would give tremendous impetus to the latter's chances, and it mnst not be forgotten that Senator Boies Penrose would rather have Knox than any other man. The writer knows that Sen tor Knox and Sen ator Johnson have been in com munication on the subject and that they are still as close frienu- as ever., Certainly if Mr. Johnson is convinced mat he can t be nom inated, he would probab! ' el that his Tiewpoi: t had been vindicated in the selection of another Senator like Mr. Knox whose views on the treaty and league wen in accord with his own. Prefer Knox. Big business would rather have Kn.x, former attorney general and former secretary of state, than Hiram Johnson, - and it the Cali fornia senator gave --- to the choice of Knox, he would be assured the support of the Repub lics:, organization for the presi dency four years uouce.
