No one can Predict the Outcome.
The Republican National Conven
tion will meet again today (Thurs
day) at 11 o'clock, but the Creden
tial Committee will hardly be ready
to report by that time and it is im
possible to predict on the outcome of
the Convention until the Credential
Committee makes its report, and that
report either adopted or rejected.
Judging from the action of the Cre
dential Committee yesterday after
noon they will adopt the action of
the National Committee, and if they
should and then the Convention
should adopt their report, it would
give the Taft forces a lead of prob
ably more than fifty delegates, but
many of the Roosevelt leaders de
clare they will not stand such treat
ment. There is some talk of Gover
nor Hughes and Gov. Bradley as dark
horses, yet those booms have taken no
definite shape. It is not probable
that there will be any nomination be
fore tomorrow (Friday) afternoon,
and the Convention will hardly ad
journ before Saturday.
CREDENTIAL COMMITTEE IX
Now Considering the Various Con
tests Roosevelt Men Claim They
Are Not Getting Fair Hearing.
Chicago, 111., June 19. The Roose
velt forces met their second defeat in
the Republican National Convention
today in a session which had for its
outstanding feature a remarkable de
monstration of nearly one hour's du
ration in honor of Governor Herbert
S. Hadley, of Missouri.
All of the Roosevelt delegates join
ed in this demonstration, while some
Taft States lent a voice. The ova
tion to the Misouri executive was
quickly interpreted by way of the
delegates as the possible forerunner
of a boom for Hadley for President.
One enthusiastic Pennsylvania man
jumped to the stage and called:
"Three cheers for Hadley, the next
President of the United States."
Governor Hadley led the fight on
the Convention floor today to oust
ninety-two contested Taft delegates
and to seat ninety-two Roosevelt men
in their places. The Convention
finally refused to entertain the mo
tion. This transferred the fight to the
Committee on Credentials, appointed
just before the Convention adjourn
ed until tomorrow noon.
A Split in the Committee and Some
Chicago, Ills., June 19. The long
expected crash in the Republican
ranks came tonight. The Roosevelt
forces acting, they said, under the
personal direction of the Colonel
himself, began to lay their plans for
independent action in the National
Republican Convention as a forerun
ner of the more drastic action ex
pected in the Convention tomorrow
or Friday. The Roosevelt members
of the Committee on Credentials
withdrew from that body tonight
withdrew in person and in effect,
withdrew all of the Roosevelt con
tests, which had been called down
from 92 to 28.
Colonel Roosevelt tonight was in
the midst of a series of exciting con
ferences and was busy figuring on the
loyal delegates whom he could ex
pect to carry with him out of the
Convention or rather into a separate
Convention on the Convention floor
in event the crisis is reached.
- Some of the conferences at his
headquarters were exciting. Senator
Borah, of Idaho, it was reported, de
clared as he left the Roosevelt rooms
that he would not bolt.
The Missouri delegation in the Con
vention held a caucus tonight for the
purpose,' it. was reported, of formally
launching a boom for Governor Had
lew for President. The remarkable
demonstration given the Missouri ex
ecutive in the Convention today, to
gether with the sudden turn in af
fairs, is said : to have strengthened

their belief that the time was ripe for
bringing forward a compromise can
didate. In the meantime, there was
much talk of Justice Chas. E. Hughes
of New York, as the candidate of the
Convention. Some of the leaders ven
tured to suggest a ticket of Hughes
The Taft people were exultant to
day. They denied intimations from
the Roosevelt side that they were
considering a compromise candidate,
and aserted that with a tightening of
the lines it was apparent that Presi
dent Taft would win the nomination

Senator Dixon declared tonight
that one final appeal might be made
to the membership of the Conven
tion. "We shall have exhausted then
every legal and moral duty devolving
upon us. The future will have to
take care of itself."
It was said some of the Roosevelt
leaders would plead with the Conven
tion tomorrow to instruct the Cre
dentials Committee to grant time for
a hearing of the contests.
According to these unofficial state
ments, the Roosevelt program will be
this: Should the Credentials Com
mittee uphold the temporary roll
adopted by the National Committee
and the Convention in turn accept
the report of the Credentials Commit
tee, thereby finally seating the dele
gates whom Colonel Roosevelt aserts
to have been fraudulently placed on
the temporary roll, those of the ex
President's adherents who are will
ing to stand with him through thick
and thin will withdraw from the Con
vention on the instant.
LEAVE THE OOMnTTEE ROOM.
Roosevelt Members Claim Credentials
Committee Wouldn't Give a Full,
H earing on Contests.
Chicago, 111., June 19. After bolt
ing once from the Credentials Com
mittee "under the orders of Colonel
Roosevelt," and being called back by
Roosevelt managers to the commit
tee room, all of the Roosevelt mem
bers of the Credentials Committee
except R. R. McCormick, of Chicago,
left again at 11:45 o'clock tonight,
declaring they were "out for good."
The cause of the bolt was the re
fusal of the committee to give a full
hearing on all contest cases.
After the Roosevelt men had left
the committee took up the cases, but
had not proceeded far when a mo
tion to adjourn until 9 o'clock tomor
row morning was proposed and car
ried. Senator Dixon, the Roosevelt cam
paign manager, who had been hur
riedly summoned after the first bal
lot, left with the Roosevelt men.
"These men are tired and will go
home and go to bed," he said. "I
think the other fellows are wasting
time to stay here tonight."

"The cases that were heard before
the National Committee were a farce
and this is a worse one. The lineup
was perfectly plain 32 to 19."
Mr. Labert declared the , break
came because the committee limited
time and excluded evidence. "
"We claimed and insisted that the
Credentials Committee should hear
all evidence as a court of original
jurisdictlon; and that the National
Convention, not the Credentials Com
mittee, should be the court of last re
sort." Before adjourning the committee

concerned, I shall never recognize in
a Republican Convention a majority
of which a large part is composed of
fraudulently seated delegates from
the States of which Governor Hadley
spoke .today. This is not a Conven
tion of the Republican party. A Con
vention of the Republican party is a
Convention the majority of which is
elected by the people and not ap
pointed by a morbid National Com
mittee. "I am for a Convention in which
sit the men elected by the States of
Washington and Arizona and not the
men appointed from Washington and
Arizona by the defunct boses of other
States. I hold that this is no case of
a factional fight. The time has come
now when we must assert absolutely
the right of the people to run the Na
tional Convention, to have their own
representatives put into the Conven
tion. I see that it was held today
that of these contested delegates all
were to vote on one another's cases
on the ground of precedent. The ar-
gument in favor of that precedent Is
of the type of the argument made by
a clever corporation lawyer when ad
vising a corporation how to keep
within a law and yet do what the law
intended to forbid. This kind of bad
faith vitiates my proposition. Fraud
destroys any contract."
FIRST STORY OF THE CONVEN
TION'. First Session Was Called to Order
Tuesday at Noon.
The Republican National Conven
tlo which is now in session in Chi
cago was called to order by Chair
man Rosewater Tuesday at noon.
Every seat in the hall was taken and
several thousand people were crowd
ed around the entrance to the build
ing waiting for something to hap
pen. The National Committee com
pleted their work of making up the
temporary roll on Saturday after
noon. Of the 254 contests, Taft was
given 235 delegates and Rosoevelt
19. According to the Associated
Press estimate Taft has 436 instruct
ed votes. Roosevelt 431. LaFolletta
36, Cummins 10, uninstructed 165.
There are 1,078 votes in the conven
tion and 540 is necessary to a choice.
The majority of the New York dele-
gation, who are uninstructed, will
vote for Mr. Taft, but this may not
be sufficient to give him the nomina
tion on the first ballot. The Roose
velt forces were very indignant at
the committee for favoring near all
the Taft contestants and termed the
committees actions as a steal.
Ex-Senator Marion Butler and
Judge W. S. O.'B. Robinson were
placed on the temporary roll as the
regular delegates from the Third
North Carolina District, but Mr.
Duncan, Committeeman from this
State, by a personal appeal to the
Committee, succeeded in having the
two bolting delegates from the
Fourth North Carolina District,
placed on the temuorary roll.t These
men are J. C. L. Harris, from Ral-
, eigh, and J. C. Matthews, from Nash.

acknowledgment of the cheers that
marked the former President's prog
ress. Mr. Roosevelt declared to-night
that he had not mapped out a plan
of campaign. He was in consulta
tion for several hours with the man
ager of his candidacy and then as
sumed charge in persion of "this
naked fight between corrupt poli
ticians and thieves and the plain
Early In the day it was announced
at the Roosevelt headquarters that
the Colonel's arrival would be abso
lutely devoid of the spectacular.
Many of the delegates, however,
would not have it thus and when the
train bearing the candidate finally
rolled Into the station there were
three bands and a cheering multitude
to greet him.
The California delegation, the most
aggressive and outspoken of the Roo
sevelt adherents a delegation which
to-day issued a thinly veiled threat
of Independent action if things did
not go well for the Colonel in the
Convention marched to the station
in a body and escorted Colonel Roo
sevelt to his hotel. They bore aloft a
banner which read:
"California refuses to try title to
property before the thief who stole
And on the reverse side:
"California's solid twenty-six for
Beam With Pleasure.
The banner caught the Colonel's
eye at once and he beamed with
pleasure. Later as he stood on the
balcony of his hotel and made a brief
address to a throng which blocked
all traffic in Michigan Boulevard for
half an hour he alluded to the sign
and made the so-called "thefts" of
the Republican National Committee
the topic of his remarks.
Colonel Roosevelt appeared to be
in fine fettle and thoroughly to enjoy
being on the battleground In person.
It was frankly acknowledged that
long distance telephoning and tele
graphing had tried the candidate's
His reception here was all that
could have been desired. The band
which led the way kept up a con
tinuous crash of music while the two
in the rear were equally busy. The
tune most in favor was the battle
song of San Juan Hill and Santlogo.
"There'll Be a Hot Time in the
Old Town To-night." When the
vast throng in front of his hotel was
clamoring for the Colonel to appear
and make an address the bands play
ed "Hail, Hall, the Gang's All Here."
Colonel Roosevelt was all but
mobbed when he reached the hotel.
It took all of the Colonel's own
strenuous efforts as well as those -of
his guards to force a way through
