Speaking of those who wlll particípate in the Indianapolis conference next Friday he said Monday evening: "We are not bolters; we are Democrats; nofc new Democrats, but oíd Democrats.

My own preference today would be Representative Turner or General Qordon of Georgia, or Congressman Bynum of Indiana." Senator Palmer declared that he was not seeking the nomination hiniself.
