The beautiful weather of t\e last few days
had given place to heat and sultriness when the
orvention came to order at 10:20 o'clock this
■wing, but the ekies were still bright and the
vast crowd which had gathered to witness the
rroceedJnp.s of the convention's most important
rtav was ini^rspersed with many brightly powned
women, and aJmost all of the spectators carried
The preliminaries were quickly disposed of.
and Senator Hopkins took the platform to sub
mit the report of the Committee on Resolutions.
Mr. Hopkins was in good voice, despite his ex
hausting work of the last two days and nights.
Th* reading: of the platform was punctuated by
applause, and the declaration of confidence in the
Judiciary with which the "court procedure" clause
begins, elicited especial approval, although the
close of the section brought some cries of "No.
no," from the reactionary faction. When he
had ended the reading Mr. Hopkins* announced
that there would be a minority report, and that
on both he moved th«» previous question, which
motion was promptly seconded and carried.
The Chair announced that this motion, under
the rules of the convention. j*>rmitted twenty
minute*' debate on each side, and Representa
tive Cooper, of Wisconsin, took the platform to
read the minority report.
•'How many members signed the minority re
port?" inquired a delegate, and Mr. Cooper con
fessed that he alone had signed it. As he pro
ceeded with the reading it was soon seen that
h«". was really delivering a speech in which he
had incorporated five of Senator La Follette'a
"fifty-seven varieties" of issues, the physical
valuation of railways", an attack on the tariff as
'the mother of trusts." the abolition of federal
injunctions and the relegation of all contempt
cases to trial by jury, publicity for campaign
contributions and disbursements to be made
"dually throughout the campaign, and the
elciiion of Senators by popular vote.
• A few chapters from "The Complete IX'ma
irogue." " an Ohio delegate pronounced it.
S. E. Payne moved to table the La Follette
platform, which would have shut off debate and
*aved much time In speeches and rollcalls, but
Chairman Lodge ruled this out of order, the
previous question having been ordered. In
fact, at every stage of the- proceedings Mr.
Lodge was conspicuously fair, and insisted that
the advocate of every candidate and every
opinion should have his full hearing, even when
the, delegates, sitting in stifling heat, felt
wearied out of all patience by some persistent
orators lacking in terminal facilities.
Mr. Cooper occupied most of the twenty min
utes allowed him. and then yielded to Mr. Ecker,
of Wisconsin, who read a vigorous protest
against the federal procedure plank as adopted
which was signed by Hugh Fuller, legislative
agent of the Affiliated Railway Employes.
Senator Hopkins replied briefly to Mr.
Cooper's harangue, which every Senator has
heard in the original every time Senator La
Follette has made a set speech in the Senate.
"Tour convention selected fifty-three members
to prepare resolutions. Fifty-two members of
that committee have signed the majority report.
In our deliberations every plank offered by the
minority was fully considered and rejected. The
question • "tether you will accept the report
of your committee or take the Democratic-So
cialistic utterances to which you have just lis
tened." was the substance of Mr. Hopkins's reply,
and there were shouts of Majority report" and
A rollcall was demanded on the whole minority
report by Wisconsin and South Dakota. At this
point. Scth Low. of New "<>rk. made him?elf un
popular by asking that the minority amend
ments bo "read." Mr. Lodge threw up his hands
with a deprecating gesture and cries of "No.
>To." were heard.
With the aid of South Dakota, Indiana se
cured a separate rollcall on the publicity plank,
which was defeated. Wisconsin demanded a
•erar-a'e rollcall on the physical valuation of
railways. Mr. Emery, of Pennsylvania, tried to
»M?cc»nd it. but the Chair explained that it re
quired a state delegation to second the motion
and South Dakota gave the necessary assent.

by th« delegatep-at-large. The total vote stood

BOUTELL NOMINATES CANNON.
The presentation of the names of candidates
to :i convention in which a large majority of the
delegates had fully determined on their course
was not an easy one. except in the case of those
who offered the name of the successful candi
date. The day was hot and the hall was hotter
when th.» rollcall of states for nominations be
gan. The nomination of Mr. Taft was clearly
assured, and the galleries were impatient of d^
lay. It was almost 1 o'clock when Illinois was
reached and Representative Boutell went to the
platform to present the name of Speaker Can
non. Mr. BoateU spoke well, and his first ref
erence to Abraham Lincoln elicited a cheer.
When he named Theodore Roosevelt the en
thusiasm was more pronounced. The cheering
lasted almost two minutes. Then the orator
began to describe Mr. t'annon.
"His father was a pious Quaker who never
took an oath in his life," said the Illinois Rep
"Uncle Joe has brought the average up all
right,** shouted a voice from the gallery, ami
the laughter was general. Mr. Boutell took a
fresh start and compared his candidate to Glad
stone, and there was more laughter and a few
cries of "Time!" Finally the speaker 'declared
that Mr. Cannon had been "Roosevelt's strong
est and greatest ally." There were a few cheers
mingled with hearty laughter, in which most of
the audience joined, but when Mr. Boutell fin
ished with the name of Illlnois's favorite «on he
was greeted with a hearty cheer.
Representative Fordney, of Michigan, from
the only Michigan district which instructed for
Cannon, seconded the nomination, and was con
stantly interrupted by cries of "Time"' and
"Give him leave to print it!"
HAXLV NAMES FAIRBANKS.
Governor Hanly of Indiana placed the name
of Vice-President Fairbanks in nomination. The
Governor was not particularly happy in his
start, and the crowd soon tried to shut off his
speech, whereupon he became indignant and
insisted that he would say his say, and that the
interrupters were only prolonging his speech.
Appealing to Pennsylvania, New York and Illi
nois as having been the homes of candidates fur
years. Governor Hanly asked, "Can you forget
"'Sure!" an<l "Sure Mike" came from the gal
Mr. Hanly*a speech was not brief, «nd he has
a habit «.f emphasizing hi* points by flapping
his hands. The crowd "got on to" this, and
proceeded to have fun with him. Every time he
clapped his hands the galleries clapped too, and
caused an Interruption. Finally the chairman,
after repeatedly pounding for order, had seri
ously t" threaten to dear the galleries before
the Hoosier statesman could ko on. As he ended
his remarks he cast Riime reflections on Presi
dent Brtosevelt, whith set both galleries and
delegates against him. and none save the Indi
ana delegation applauded his efforts.
Mayor Hookwaiter of Indianapolis seconded

the nomination of the favorite son of his state.
He was not more fortunate than his colleague
who made the nomination. Wlirn New York
was called General Woodford took the platform.
"We have built a platform to-day, longer,"
began the general, when lie was interrupted by
a voice from the gallery with "than Hanly'^
speech!" "Longer, much longer, th.in my
speech," finished the general, quickly and tact
fully, and he had the galleries with him. He
spoke briefly and eloquently, showing a good
spirit toward other candidates and making one
of the best presentations of the day. He was
heartily applauded when he finished, which he
did with an eloquent prayer for the future of
the Republican party.
Then came Mr. Burton and Mr. Knight with
the name of Taft. as has already been told, and
after the Taft demonstration was ended C. P.
McCoy, of the 17th Ohio district, nominated
Senator Foraker, and was followed by W. O.

and delegates alike. He was cordially applaud

speech that took well, and he was followed by
James Scarlet, who seconded the nomination.
Henry F. Cochens. of Wisconsin, nominated
Mr. La Follette with a speech which wars strik
ingly reminiscent of Mr. La Follette's own
harangues. He had the galleries with him at the
start and was frequently applauded, but he
spoke too long and the galleries grew impa

the hook," until the Chair had to come to his as
sistance more than once. The seconding speech
of Mr. McGee has already been referred to.
PRESIDENT AT TENNIS
IVan Playing a Game When New*
Arrived— Mr. Tuft's Busy Day.
[From The Tribune Bureau. 1
Washington. June 18.— "Taft will have seven
hundred votes on the flrst ballot" was the con
fident prediction of President Roosevelt a month
figo, and to-day, when the delegates were verify
ing his prediction to the unit, he was playing
tennis in the hot sun with Robert Bacon. Assist
ant Secretary of State, on the court behind the
White House office building-.
When the "flash" bulletins recording the roll
call gave North Dakota, and it was apparent
that Ohio's vote the next minute would give the
Secretary of War more than enough to nominate
him, and just as Secretary Iy>eb called out from
the window overlooking the court the crucial
fact, the President's racquet was extended full
reach over his head as he shouted "(Same." and
the nt-xt minute be and his opponent were pro
ceeding with another set. while Secretary Loeb
was distributing to the newspaper representa

tated by the President hours earlifr congratulat
ing the country on the pre-eminent fitness of Mr.
Taft to be President.
Over In the War Department In th«- secre
tary's private office when the rollcall was in
progress Mrs. Taft and her son Charles, Gen
erals Bell and Edwards and a telegraph oper
ator were keeping tally as the bulletins came
from the convention. All were intensely ex
cited, BO much so that through an error in cal
culation It was not known tiiat the needed 4!»1
votes had accumulated in the Taft column until
Oklahoma was passed. Immediately all further
interest poemed to be lost and the doors were
thrown open to admit a largo number of officials
and friends, who pressed forward with congrat
ulations. Secretary Taft did not wait for the
rollcall to end to learn that his nomination vas
made unanimously. He went at once to the
street, where he and General Edwards mounted
their horses, and. accompanied by Secretary Root
and General Bell, rode hurriedly down to the
new Army War College, which they had an ap
pointment to inspect.
Until he returned to his house at S o'clock
Secretary Taft knew no further details of the
convention than that he had been nominated
and the dreaded stampede to Roosevelt had not
materialized. As Boon as he entered his house
he iearned for the flrst time all that had oc
curred after Oklahoma voted, and was con
fronted by the enormous stock of congratulat >ry
messages that had been pouring In for Mrs.
Taft and himself from all parts of the country
for tv/o hours.
He liud no time to read them just then, lit- said,
as he was la.le to dinner and hungry, and he
wanted to go over to the White House tit 'J

him to transact more important business for his

Sherman Develops Strength Follow

* [By Tp!c*Tvr>h m Tli» Tribune. I
Chicago. June 18.— The candidate for Vice
president maybe chosen before daylight at a
conference \n the room of F. H. Hitchcock in
the Auditorium. Representative Sherman, or New
York, seems to be the favorite just now. but h«
may be bowled out if there is any way of get
ting Senator Dolliver Into the race.
The conference going on at midnight was at
tended by Frank H. Hitchcock, the Taft .nan
ager; Senator Long, of Kansas: Senator War
ren of Wyoming; Senator Lodge. F. B. Kellogg,
Charles P. Taft, Representative Herbert Parson,
and George A. Knight, the chairman of the Cali
fornia delegation. ; m^A
One of the conferees who came from I.stcn
corks rooms at about 1:30 a. m. said:
"The situation resolves back to Sherman all
the time. Other men have been discussed, but
none meets the requirements. Of all the men
called into the conference this evening on.y
Senator Borah and Representative Burton are
opposed to Sherman. Borah wants a man of
PopuliPtlc tendencies and Burton talks Dol.i
ver. He holds back the Ohio delegation from
a Sherman Indorsement. That is the only
thing that prevents certainty of Sherman's se
'The President telephoned the New York
delegation to-night to take Sherman when four
names were submitted to him end he was asked
to make a choice."
The lowa delegation got together to-night and
indorsed Governor Cummins for the place. Tills
somewhat embarrassed the Taft men. who
wanted lowa to present DolHver cs Its candi
date. Senator Dolllver does not want it. The
race seems to lie between Cummins and Sher
man at this time, as lowa cannot throw over
Cummins in the face of his indorsement and
take up Dolliver, the choice of the Taft men.
"It looks very good indeed for Sherman." said
Representative Parsons to a Tribune repre
THREE STATES FOR SHERMAN
Sherman is the candidate of New York, Illinois
and Colorado for the Vice-Presidential nomina
tion. At an enthusiastic meeting of the- New-
York delegates and alternates at the New York
headquarters to-night all the Hughes. Taft and
Cannon men swung into line for Sherman.
"Uncle" Joe Cannon, after a talk with Repre
sentative Littauer. who Is managing the Sher
man boom, and who voted for Cannon to-day,
said he would do what he could to swing his
men into line, and as soon as he told them what
he wanted they got out with a glee club and
band in behalf of Sherman. State Chairman
Woodruff was Informed by the friends of John
Hays Hammond that Mr. Hammond had with
drawn in favor of Sherman, and that Colorado,
which was to have presented the name of Ham
mond, would cast her votes for Sherman. With
New York and Illinois helping, it is conceded
that Sherman has a good chance for the nom
P.ut there are other candidates. If Secretary
Taft should indicate his preference for a run
ning mate, and that particular person should
not ba Sherman, it is conceded that Sherman
would be out of the race. Senator Borah, o|
Idaho, one of the President's intimate friends,
hart the White Ho<u?e on the telephone to-night
trying to learn who would be most acceptable
to Mr. Taft as a running mate. Senator Borah
said afterward that the field was an open urn:
and that the delegates would have to do all
It Is understood that Governor A. B. Cummins
is in the field and that he will have the backing
of the united lowa delegation and will be placed
in nomination by Robert Nealy. of Port Dodg-.
California is likely to present the name of
George A. Knight, who seconded the nomination
of Secretary Taft In the convention to-day, and
whose voice fairly overwhelmed the noisemak
ers in the galleries. He will be nominated by
Juilgf H. A. Melvin of the Superior Court.
JERSEY HARD AT WORK FOR MURPHY.
New Jersey will present the name of e.x-Gov
ernor Murphy. The friends of Mr. Murphy have
been working hard for the last week, and ex
pett that part of Pennsylvania, all of Connecti
cut and many Indiana men will vc-te for Murphy
on the flrst ballot, F. S. Dalrymple. Murphy's
campaign manager, says that Murphy will have
!!."><» votes on the flrst ballot.
There is strong talk among the Minnesota
delegates to-night of nominating Frank li. Kel
logg, special United States District Attorney In
charge of the prosecution of the case* against
the Standard Oil Company. J. B. Cotton, of
Duluth, has been chosen to present his name.
' The Nebraska delegates expect to nominate
Governor George L. Sheldon. He will be named,
It is understood, by Senator Norris Brown.
Both the Sherman men and the Guild men
claim Michigan. State Chairman Woodruff said
to-night that New York had a better chance
than Massachusetts of getting the Michigan
delegates. Missionary work for Guild w%s done
on the occasion of the Governor's speech in
Grand Rapids on Lincoln's Birthday. It Is ex
pected that Chase S. Osborne, of Michigan, will
second the nomination of Governor Guilu.
SHERMAN'S POET LAUREATE.
As soon as "Uncle Joe" Cannon joined the Sher
man forces the Illinois men got busy. Repre
sentative Rodenburg, of Illinois, composed a.
song, with a good swing to it, and in less than
thirty minutes he had a hundred men marching
around the Auditorium singing:
Hurrah for Sherman! Ain't he a dandy?
Hurrah for. Sherman! He's the whole Warned candy.
Ain't lie a daisy? Hh sets the whole bunch crazy.
Kins, zwei, Urel, vier: Sherman la a winner here.
Hurrah for Sherman! lie's a blamed fine man.
That may not look like much of a song, but
it raised the roof when it was sung. The Hughes
and Teft men were united at a caucus held at
8:15 o'clock at *he Auditorium. Representative
J. Sloat Fa^set't made a ringing speech for Sher
man anil harmony and every one fell Into lln«.
State Chairman Woodruff presided.
A big picture of Sherman was brought into
the room, and Mr. Faßsett facetiously said that
he had been for Sherman for Vice-President
until the picture was brought In, . and assured
every on* that Sherman was a better looking
man than the campaign banner made him out
"We may be a>"kiii< favors of the conven
tion to-morrow," said Mr. Fan.^ett, "but the
whole Republican party will be asking New
York next fail for her thirty-nine electoral votes.

"I believe.". said Senator Alfred R. Page, one
