CHICAGO, June 16. A movement In be-
haf of Justice Charles E. Hughes Of the
United States supreme court as-a cott-
promlse candidate for president took det
inite form here today. Several supporters
of the justice came on frqm New York
and spent the day in the hotel , lobbies
and quarters of various state deiega.
Hons Bounding the sentiment of dele
Kates and political leaders. William H.
Hotohkiss of New York, former state
superintendent of insurance and a close
friend of Justice Hughes, is the leading
spirit of the movement.
"Does not Justice Hughes' statement
of last week that' ho would not : permit
the use of his name as a compromise
candidate eliminate him?" Mr. Hotch
kiss was asked.
"I think not," 'he replied. "No man,
particularly a man with Justice Hughes'
ideas of civic duty, can refuse to serve
the" people of the nation in a crisis Such
- as the present one." .
Mr. Hotchkiss and his associates took
pains to make it clear that' they ' haM
come' here without the ' knowledge of
Justice Hughes, who, they felt, would dis
courage such a movement. Mr. Hotch
kiss said he had not seen the justice in
Conld Carry New York.
"I am pleased," he said, '"to learn, In
the few hours I have spent In Chicago
what' a large number of delegates " are
leaning toward Justice Hughes as the
man on whom all factions can unite. ' He
wonld appeal to the whole country. He
could carry his own state of New York,
which is a prime requisite. '
"I did not come to Chicago as an op
ponent or Colonel Roosevelt, whom as an
exponent of progressive principles, I Shall
support should he be nominated. . I came
here merely In an effort to help a prob
lem which confronts the republican party
at the present time."

The conclusion of the committee hear
ings on the contests has given a new
turn to tho convention gossip .which U
ndW busy chiefly with reports of dele
gates transferring allegiance or violating
Instructions. After the charges and
countercharges of bribery uhd corrup
tion, the common inference is that where
a delegate pledged to one candidate an
nounces himself for another, some kind
of a consideratlon or deal Is at the bot
tom of it, "allhbugh. of course, no actual
money payment may be Involved.
On- the -face of the figures, the Taft
forces have the convention by a small
margin, an dthe question is only whether
they can' hold their lines, in the mean
while, as I have said, the committee is
coming In' for more or less criticism.
The twelve-hour session of Saturday,
reaching far"int6 the nlht. was nerve
trying ,wlth a tense feeling, and threat
ened outbreaks bf violence at several
points. The adjournments. howe'er.

; Despite the lateness of the hour, I
dropped in on the banquet at the Blaok
stone given in honor if my old friend,
Louis HammerllngV by the Association of
Foreign Language Newspapers, of which
he is president. The toa3tmaster msisted
that I respond briefly with a few re
marks. Which I did by saying that 1 had
come, merely, to pay. my respects to the
guest of honor, and not to make a speech,
believing that after the strenuous day I
had had I ought to be excused.
! "I venture to note, however, that s't-
ting here listening to , the addresses hat
proved very, quieting and restful. Since
coming into the room l have not heard
anyone call anyone else a liar or a thief;
nor accuse anybody of stuffing a ballot
box or Of trying to set up a 'lily white'
party. I congratulate you on your good
behavior and orderly, procedure." .
Incidentally, I aluded to the fact that

Zapadu some forty years. ago as a paper
printed in the Bohemian language, whose
caption stared at me from the menu card
and was represented at the banquet table
by its present publisher, Vaclav Bresh.

I had a talk this afternoon with Wil
liam J.' Bryan, who . is, here,; having the
time of his life. If there Js' anything he
enjoys more t$an a ruction in-the demo

a real fracas among " republicans. '.. Mr.
Bryan's daughter and his son-in-law, Mr.
and Mrs. Hargraves, are also to be spec
tators In the convention and Brother
'tCharley" Bryan may look In on us for a
little while. I. advert to this simply to
show the great interest which our demo
cratic friends are taking in what the re
publicans are doing, and proof that the
action at Baltimore cannot, be safely
forecasted until the ticket is nominated

votes of their district. Delegates to the
state convention at Grand Island July
were elected at the meeting
which every democratic' office holder, in
both tho-county and -city administration

attacked aa an "Ill-advised and unin
telligent" attempt to banish social evil
which has aggravated rather than lm-
proved conditions incident to that prob

as being detrimental to the growth of a
great metropolis and the democrats de
clare themselves in favor of modifying
the law so far as metropolitan cities are
concerned. The non-partisan commission
form of government was highly com
mended for the efficient and able man

"It Is safe to say that the spirit of

almost hysterical from crowds of dele

slong the way from the Lake Shore rail
road station to the Congress hotel, and
then went Into conference with hie "gen-,
Mr. Roosevelt's advent upon ths scene
of factional conflict had been so widely
advertised, and the subject of so much
advance comment both friendly and hos
tile, that its sensational aspects were, if
possible, exaggerated in the minds of all
elements. The result was that when tha
first excitement had subsided and he had
made his brief speech from ths hotel
balcony, the crowd came to realise that
after all the world was still revolving
with Its wonted smoothness; the conven
tion was still more than two days dis
tant, and the question was still one of
who would have the 840 delegates neces
sary for a majority and for a nomina

which in the hour betwen 4 and S o'clock
seemed hardly possible.
Not Candidate for Chair.
Mr. Roosevelt last night definitely de

The MeKlr'V; table gave Taft eighty
three of New York's ninety delegates,
but at the' very moment when he was
giving it out, the New York delegation
was hi caucus-the New Yorkers called
It a "conference" and ex-Lieutenant
Governor Timothy L. Woodruff was de
claring that eighteen delegates ' from
Brooklyn would follow hlra into the
Roosevelt camp. Later it was reported
that the Brooklyn delegates were any
thing but willing to accept Mr. Woodruff
as a "bell wether" and more than that
nobody knew what they would decide
to do. Conservative estimates had al
lowed Mr. Taft not more than seventy-
five votes from New York. Late in
the day, after the New York" meeting, i
State Chairman William Barnes, Jr., said: '
"The votes of the New yora aeiegation

Messrs. Hugo and Anderson said the .
sentiment among their constituents was
unfavorable to the policies advocated by
Mr. Barnes. Mr. Hugo said his people
were opposed to both Taft and Roose

on the ground that Mr. Barnes is reac
