CHICAGO, III., June 18. The great convention hall in the Coliseum began
filling early this morning and by lOt 15 o'clock crowds were gathered, A brass
band, playing "America," was loudly cheered. Extraordinary police precau
tions are being taken. Men '. uniform and plain clothes are everywhere.
Senator Borah of Idaho had been previously announced as the Roosa.
velt candidate for temporary chairmanship, but a shift was made to Mc
Govern. The California delegation entered the halt at 11 1 30 o'clock.
The .convention was called to order at two minutes after twelve o'clock
by Victor Rosewater of Nebraska, chairman of the national committee. It
was fifteen minutes before the big hall became quiet. The secretary road
the convention' call.
Governor Hadley of Missouri, the floor leader for ihe Roosevelt forces,
started the fireworks by moving that the roll at prepared by the national
committee be amended by substituting for it the roll prepared by the Roose
Senator Watson of West Virginia, the floor leader for the Taft forces,
at once raited a point of order. Twenty minutes was given each side for de
bate, after which the chair sustained the point of order raised by Watson.
Hadley Immediately appealed from the decision of the chair.
Watson moved to table. Both were declared out of order.
Chairman Rosewater then presented the name of Senator Root for the
temporary chairmanship, following tho action of the national committee. Ed
die Cochens, the former Wisconsin football player and now a prominent
politician, nominated Governor McGovern of Wisconsin. Job Hedges, a col
ored delegate, Hood of Kentucky, and Groner of West Virginia seconded
Root's nomination, and Governor Johnson and Heney of California, Walter
L. Houter, the La Follette manager, and Governor Vessey of South Dakota
seconded McGovern't nomination.
Heney 'started a row by comparing the national committee to Boss Abe

CHICAGO, III, June 18. From th e vtry moment of the opening of the
convention hall, the nervous tension was apparent. Policemen were station

The hall was brilliantly decorated, the iron-work arching overhead be
ing hidden in the national colors. The galleries were draped with mountain
Two Taft delegates were not In evidence when the California delegation
came in. All twenty-six of the Roosevelt Californians were seated. The
women in the California delegation wars cheered.
Governor Hadley, in speaking for tho substitution of tho Roosevelt roll
for the one prepared by the national committee, cited the convention of
1864 which nominated Abraham Lincoln as a precedent for action.
Former Governor Fort of New Jersey joined with Hadley, saying that
the procedure was established in the convention of 1880.
Sereno Payne of New York opposed the motion on behalf of tho Taft
When Chairman Rosewater made tho adverse ruling on Hadley's mo
tion, there was wild tumult.
As Governor Johnson of California had the tickets of the two Taft men
on the California delegation, Tyron and Meyerfield, they were not admitted
to 'the enclosure where the delegates were seated, but stood outside the rail
ing. When California wat reached on the roll-call on a temporary chairman,
Mrt. Florence Porter, a delegate from the Golden State, called out "Me
Govern!" When the names of Tyron and Merrifield were called to get their votes
recorded for Taft, Johnson leaped to a chair and shoutedi "There are no
such delegates. Their names were put on the rolls fraudulently. You will
elect no temporary chairman by such votes!"
The protest was unavailing, and California's vote was countedi McGov
