Permanent loss of old regulars suppwt would split the powerful political empire with which Long has controlled the state. Senator Lonj had asked that State Senator Charles E. Byrne be endorsed by the old regulars for district attorney instead or the Incumbent. Eugene Stanley. The re- ouest came as a compromise after the organization hod refused lo accept other candidates advanced by Senator Long. Following tr.e caucus Mayor T.
