V,0 NEW ALIGNMENT IS SHOWN
Much to Be Made of Preparedness
Parade Which Will Come
DELEGATES NOT ALL ON HAND
BY VICTOR ROSEWATER.
Chicago, June 2. (Special Tele
gram.) As the convention week
comes closer the skirmishing between
the fori.es marshalled in the different
ramps is getting sharper, but it has
developed no new alignment.
It is still a concerted effort to head
off and break the Hughes sentiment,
and while there is apparent co-opera-tiou
to this end by the favorite sons,
the heavy work devolves on the bat
teries set up and munitioned by
George W. I'crkius and his Wall
street and big business adjutants on
behalf of Roosevelt.
T. R. Cohorts Busy.
The Koosevelt sharpshooters are in
continuous action, both the troops in
the trenches and birdmen in the air
above, and they have most of the
Chicago newspapers pounding out the
big noise with all the variations.
The Roosevelt people are also try
ing to turn to the account of the
colonel the monster preparedness pa
rade arranged for tomorrow. In all
the invitations and announcements
this demonstration is specially la
belled "nonpolitical and nonpartisan,"
but the signs are unmistakable that it
is to be utilized so far as possible to
influence the- convention.
I think the parade is timed a trifle
early for this purpose because the
great majority of the delegates who
do the voting are not yet here, and
will not be on the ground befoc Mon
day and Tuesday.
No Visible Factionalism.
In the interval the national com
mittee 13 grinding on contests and
without being accused of deciding
them according to the presidential
preferences of the men seated. For
tunately no factional alignment inside
the committee is visible, such as was
forced last time by the contention be
tween the supporters of the only Jwo
candidates in the field.
That reminds me, too, of another
thing noticeable by contrast. Four
years ago, it will be remembered, a
tremendous hubbub was raised as to
whether a prospective member of the
committee who had received a prefer
ence vote in a direct primary should
take his seat at once and oust the
sitting member, whose term had not
Case From South Dakota.
Well, there is one such committee-man-elect
here, W. C. Cook of South
Dakota, and possibly others, in ex
actly that same situation, but no one
is setting up any claim that he should
begin active service in advance of the
convention that chooses the new com
mittee, even though in the case of Mr.
took, the hitting member is holding
merely by appointment to fill a va
cancy created by the death of the pre
viously elected committeeman.

the time for the calling of the repub

floor of the convention.
An informal poll of a number of the

cates that after the first few ballots
have been taken and the "favorite

will go to Roosevelt or LIughes as
their second choice.
Penrose Delegates Uninstructed.
Senator Boies Penrose of Pennsyl

"Three quarters of the seventy-six
delegates from Pennsylvania are un
instructed. We are going to do what
in our judgment is best for the inter

no preference at this stage of the pro
ceedings. The claim made by friends
ot Governor iirumbaugh that they
will have half of the Pennsylvania
delegation is absolutely untrue."
Henry G. Wasson, national com

one of the leaders of the Brumbaugh

The battle seems to have lasted
through the afternoon and the fol

losses are stated to have been serious,
but no very definite information of
these losses are afforded by the ad
miralty announcement. One battle
cruiser is declared to have been de
stroyed and another severely dam

that a large number of German de
