The Mayor got out of his car several

Not only did he attack the eolonel's per

nation from the Republican party and
asserted his bellef that Mr Roosevelt

"Mr. Roosevelt says that he is the Re?

"The inference from this is that he wlll
bolt the convention because a duly con

shall, after a judicial investigation, re

his edict is to be heeded, then the hold

tory and superfluous.
