The Row still is far under the Srur ifs a and will not Harrak out during a he a convention. According to All signs but a it is due to rut Loose shortly afterwards and present indication Are that it will tear the la Follette Wing of the party wide open. Blaine is. Ithmar the Row is Between the supporters of attorney general John j. Blaine and Dithmar for the privilege of carrying the la Follette Standard into the rare for the governorship this fall. Blaine to the Tholos of the leaders who Are closest to the senator. But Dithmar has a Strong hacking among the la Follette clan. Including a majority of the delegation to the National convention. Efforts to get the lieutenant governor to pull out of Blaine # Way in the interests of Harmony have met with defiant Rebuff from til the mar. Who insist that he i entitled to the endorsement of the faction and that he will net give it up without submitting the matter to the voters. Stalwarts delighted of course this Row is hailed with Delight in Stalwart quarters. They see in the progressive split the Opportunity of reversing the result of the presidential primary in which the i it a Follette people swept the state and elected All hat two of the delegates to the Chicago convention. There has been persistent rumours that Dithmar. In announcing his candidacy. Hail Quot got the jump Quot on his and that the upshot of the dispute would be that Blain would withdraw in order to preserve factional integrity. Blaine himself a refused to endorse the Rumor in any Way during the week. And was pretty definite about it Friday night. A i am not at this convention to play a Tate politics Quot he said. Quot we Are Here to select a National candidate for the presidency. I never heard that Chicago a any part of the soil of Wisconsin. I will not. Therefore announce my candidacy during the convention nor will i say when it May be expected. When i am ready a statement will he gent Ai Over the held Assurance this a taken a at least negative i Assurance that the attorney general a not accepted the to the mar announcement a eliminating him. The situation of Sis t multiplicity of candidate for the office of governor which bids fair to make the fall up Linary one of the hottest and most Kin certain for years. Candidates not regarded a definitely in the Field include Dithmar Blaine Hull and Wilcox. There also is the suggestion that i gov.

Beaman and Francis a Mcgovern former governor on of whom is Likely to heave Bis hat into the ring at any a minute As a progressive candidate who i Doe not accept the leadership of la Follette. Woman asserts convention slow by Mary Garret Hay Chicago about the most outstanding impression i have of the convention is the irks meness and irritation of the delay. It seems the Convell i Ion has dragged. The Host is bad. The hotels Are crowded. Prices Are exorbitant and delegates alternates and visitors have Obi i Ted to the delay. I cannot he p but contrast this with conventions of women such As the funeral federation of women club where we have frequently 10.000 to 15.000 in attendance there the meetings open promptly and close on time and have a great Deal of Pep Bro Ghoul Tho platform contained Many things thai were progressive and will j Appeal to the new Totne voters.
