Washington,.Feb. 28.—It is believed in official circles here that the at tempt on the life of the Shah was (be result of a plot hatched by reac tionaries who were actors in the con spiracy against the government which has been seething for months. The conditions in Persia have been very unsettled and a revolution for some time has seemed inevitable. It was thought, however, that the strenuous efforts used by the officials had about restored quiet.

C., Feb. 28.—A great fight ia being made by the various avowed candidates for the Presidency for control of the Republican National Committee. Up to a month ago, it was quite certain that a majority of the committee was opposed to the to tho nomination of Secretary Taft Now Mr. Taft’s friends are claiming the control with all the confidence that Is characteristic of them. Mr. Frank Hitchcock, Taft’s campaign manager, is quite positive that more than half of tho members of the com mittee nro Bupporters of tho Secre tary. "You may state unequivocally nnd emphatically," said he, “that Mr. Taft's friends control the National Committee.’' Since Mr. Hitchcock retired from •the office dC First Assistant F\ostr nwsrer General, .ho has boen devoting ihlu time to conferences with state leaders of the Republican party from nil parts of the country. TnoHe con ference* have had to do particularly ■with the attitude towards Secretary Tnft of members of tho National Com* nilttee. In add-on, Mr| jlltchcock has communicated directly with the pommltleemcn themselves, wlt^ii all of whom, through his previous con nection with national campaignu, he Is well acquainted. Quite naturally, the Contest has not been one-sided. While Mr. Hitchcock and other friends of Secretary Taft have been working vigorously, the other candidates and their friends have not beqn idle. All realize not merely that tactical, but the practical advantages that will acruo to the can didate or candidates in control of tho commltee. It is unlikely, Indeed, that It may carry with It the power to niuke the nomination. In the course of the contest, an Im portant fact has been developed pret ty conclusively, that is, that the fight just now is Taft against the field. It is assured, substantially, that tho oth er candidates have formed a woricln„ agreement, by the terms /of which for certain purposes, they will stand as «. E.
