Topeka, Jan. 20.—The Republican party is not the only one that will have a problem to face in tiiia year's campaign. The Kansas Democrats, while presenting all the outward ai^ pearances of haniiony and exhibiting more eiithuslasm than they have shown for years, have troubles of their own. The fact Is, the Democratic leaders are "tscarod siiflT" lit the magnitude of the fllllard following. The IJi'inocrutic leaders do not want to go Into the state campai^jn on a resubmission platform. They i<re frankly nfrald it will raise up and kick them In the slats. At the same time ilicy admit, when talking cotili- dentlally and presised for an jinswer, that Blllard apparently has all th. better of Hodges in the race for Governor new and that his following is. growing. Therefore, the leader who can devise a feasible plan to shelv- Billard will have performed a ser vice to his party wh'eh cl.-^ssifjis as little short of an inspiration.

A good ir.eny voted for him In 1910, hut they voted for him as a protest against Stubhs and not because cf any par- ticula.- friendliness for Hodges, although everylwdy who knows Hodges personally likes and admires him.

According to friends of the president to <Jay a determined effort will be'.madc in New York state to send an'instructed delegation to the Chicago convention. According to .reports that have reached Washington, William Barnes, Jr.. the Republican state chairman, is opposed to an instructed delegation and wishes the .\ew York Republicans to decide up- oi) a platform on which they can all stand, rather than a whom they can support. It was Paid that Taft supporters In Greater -Vew York intend to make a fight on Mr. Rarnes in the state con- v,~ntion if he will not concede tlie necessity of an Instructed delegation. Several New York state Republicans have stated recently that' the president will get the entire delegation from Greater New York, and that hi.? supporters will control the state convention. Just how the president regards this deterininatioa to force Mr. Barnes to consent to a pledged delegation was not disclosed. It was said be was 'old that the effort would be made B is hop'd that no reader will con- siiue this statement of the case In an expression of the belief that a majority of Kansas voters are in favor of rrsubmtssicn.
