(Special from a Staff Correspondent of The livening World.)
ROCHESTER, N. Y., April 10. Although he Republican party
of the State tentatively instructed the four delegates-at-large and th
eighty-six district delegates for Taft In closing hours of the conven
tion this afternoon, influential leaders of the party do not regard the In
structions as binding in a political sense. They consider that, if the bat
interests of the party should dictate the nomination of another at Chicago
in June, the instructions issued by the Rochester convention may be dis
regarded, inasmuch as they are construed to carry only a moral obli
The Roosevelt followers look upon the instructions as a subterfuge
for the sake of expediencv. The Republican leaders who do not believe
Taft can be re-elected are hoping that another man may come out of tie
background between now and June on whom the delegates of the Em
pire State may centre their support
The convention was stand pat and reactionary from start to finish.
The Republican party is still split wide open on many important issues.
The Rochester convention, taken in connection with the Illinois primaries,
has spread a Republican chill.
Leaders of the organisation, talking
for publication, say the convention will
be a great help toward harmony.
Speaking privately, they deplore the
feeling, so manifest to-day, that the
rank and file are certainly not united
on Taft and are widely divided on the
pollutes enunciated In the State plat
