So«n after the nomination of
Mr. Hughes and President Wil-
son. when it l-eeame certain that.
Mr. Roosevelt would endorse Mr
Hughes and deliver the Bull
Moose to that ticket so far as he
was able to do so, bets were im-
mediatley placed In New York
with odds of 2 to 1 in favor of
Mr. Hughes, but now it appears
that the assumption that the
Hull Moose would vote anywhere
near solidly for Hughes is un-
founded. Tire Vice-presidential
nominee of the Bull Moose party
Mr. John Parker, has issued a
call for a convention to meet in
Chicago on August f>th, to nomi-
nate a full ticket that will stick
to the party. This fact shows
eonclusivly that the Bull Moose
are far from having decided to
go over to either party in a lump
