Gross of Milwaukee who took the platform making poet which was slated for James Thompson of in a Crosse missed the Chanee of getting the in. Follette delegations fight into every newspaper headline in the Mun by yesterday. With the of Ommittee room crowded with newspaper men and visitors. Gross sat silent when senator Smoot of Utah politely kicked out the Public and the press. Apparently Gross preferred to make his fight for Public discussion of the platform inside the locked doors of the committee room Nenee Only echoes of it could reach the outside. Newspaper men who were aware of the fight planned by the Wisconsin member of the resolutions committee were astonished. Smoot s announcement had Given Gross a made to or Der Opportunity to get his tight before the Public previous to the expulsion of All but Committer members Gross bad prepared a rest Lution demanding open Public sea lion on which he declared just previous to the assembling of the resolutions committee he was going to make a desperate fight. The Resolution which he submitted after the doors of the committee room in Congress hotel had be n dosed was As follows believing literally that a party platform is a covenant with the people and that such and similar covenant should be openly arrived at therefore be it resolved that the deliberations of the committee on resolutions be conducted openly and publicly. It was pointed i today that Hod Gross risen with an objection even of it lad Bern Over ruled and ski discussion headed off until after the room had been cleared.

The real fight for the Wisconsin platform will be conducted on the floor when i will submit it As a whole and speak for that the in Follette and Johnson people were expecting to work together on the platform in some degree was indicated by the fact that before the committee meeting was called to order groan had a whispered conference in Tho committee room with senator Horah chef Johnson lieutenant.
