Will Bolt Chicago Convention if His Con
testing Delegates Are Shut Out
LINCOLN, Neb., May 31, That while Taft apparently has a maporlty
of the Chicago delegates, Itoosevelt Intends to be a candidate before the
people, and, If necessary, will organize a bolting convention. Is the gist
of an editorial forecast by William Jennings Bryan In his Commoner to
day, Bryan says:
"We 'have now approached near enough to the Ri'publlcan National
Convention M forecast the action of that body Kx-Prestdent Itoosevelt
will have apiwirently a majority of the Northern States, while President
Taft neniii likely to have a majority nf the Convention including the
Southern delegates, who represent merely patronage und boodle.
"Mr. Itoosevelt has been careful o arrange for contesting delegates
from the South this was the first Indication of tils Intention to bolt With
a msjorlty of the Northicn delegates he Is In a position to have a con
vention Df his own, In case his contesting delegates are refused admission.
"The conclusion, therefore, 1 that Mr itoosevelt will be the nominee
of the regular Cnnvenllon, or the nominee of a bolting convention. Out
ready for his candidacy. He Is ultr sure to run.
"Can Itoosevelt be defeutiil? Yes, by any good Progressive. A Pro
gressive wilt hold the Democratic vote and the Republicans who opposn
a third term will do the rost. Mr. Cl.trh nnd Mr. ''llsun are the leading
Progressive candldates-'lthcr one of tlio'n can diu.M Itoosevelt The
country will never havo a President for a third term."
