Tatt will bo the presidential nominee
of the republican party in this year's
forced upon even the most unwilling,
now that all the state and congression
al district conventions have been held.
While many of the j southern states
will send contesting delegations, on
the face of the returns from the south,
the war secretary Is apparently In con
trol of the situation and most of th
Dixie legations .Will probably be
found lined up ffHh ln oll4 wet fur
the Ohloan. , Unless tH6F In a iro-
found change In sentiment biwell
now and the date set for the convert
Hon, Taft's nomination on the face of
returns from the state' and diet riot
conventions Is assured. In the last
week or two many of the hIgh-Balarled
writers and employes at the headquar
ters of opposing candidates have been
dismissed, and the more candid of the
boomers of Cannon, Knox, Hughes,
Fairbanks, et at., admit that the bat
tle Is already apparently lost.
While Interest In the republican con
test la subsiding, the next week Will
be a busy one In democratic circles.
Conventions and primaries will he
held In many states. In different parts
of tho country, and will afford a fair
measure of the strength of the Bryan
Democratic conventions will be held
Monday m California, at Fresno, and
In Washington at Spokane. Accord
ing to advices' frortt the1 Coast, Bryan Is
certain of liidbrserfierK by both con
ventions. State prfmarie' wfll be held
In Alabama on Mon'd"ay". fne . senti
ment In that state Is alleged to be foY
Bryan for president, and the delega
tion will probably go for him, as well
as Instructed for a platform In line
with the policies he advocates.
On Tuesday a prlmray election will
be held In Florida, at which dele
gates to the Denver convention will be
chosen. There Is little doubt that the
entire Florida dojegatlon will be for
Bryan, as the opposition has boen
weak and dispirited and the Nebras
kan Is a favorite with a large major
ity of the Democratic voters.
Wednesday will be an Important day
In the democratic calendar, since stfito
conventions Will be held In Pennsyl
vania, Missouri, and South Carolina.
The conventions will be watched with
a great deal of Interest by Washington
In South Carolina the fight over
Bryan has not been so bitter as In the
northeastern states, but there haa been
much powerful opposition to the
Nebraskan. Senator Tillman, th
most powerful figure In South Caro
lina politics, Is thought to favor Bry
an, but he will not take an active part
In the campaign. The convention to
bo held next Wednesday In Columbia
will elect the district delegates as well
as the delegates at large.
In Michigan, where the democratic
state convention will be hold at Lan
ins: on Wednesday, considerate wu-
tlment in favor of Johnson baa devel-j
oped. The state committee refused to
Indorse Bryan, and this action put
heart Into the Johnson boomers, who
have been carrying on a vigorous cam
paign during the last few weeks. Ac
cording to reports received from Mich
igan, the voters are about evenly di
vided between the Bryan and Johnson
factions and any attempt to instruct
