ONE HARD DAY'S
WORK WINS TWO
DELEGATES FOR T. R.
Roosevelt's Presence at Chicago Fails to Cause
Stampede or Arouse Great Enthusiasm

WOODRUFF ON COLONEL'S SIDE
Both Sides F.xpress Absolule Confidence, but Keep Up

* i -iraapOBdani ot Thf Trtr*_n<?. 1
Chic.ir,**). June 16.?Thia ha. been far from a day of rest in eithcr the Taft
or the Rcoaevelt hc:dc. .artcrs
Color.cl Roosevelt a:*d his lieutsnants have been fighting hard The known
net :c u!t is one de!cg:te from Georgia and "Timmy" Woodruff. Of course
the claims of the Roosevelt managers are much larger, but the denia's of thal
Taft people are cf ecuzl n**c. and the actual results no man can tell.
A most obvioui fact in the situation is that the coming of Colonel Roosevelt
has thus far f*;:led to occasion the stampede or even to arouse the enthusiasm
which h;s most arder.t followers believed it would.
Both lidea csscrt that they are aosolutely confident of the result. and yet
both are trying their beat to make the result cer'.ain. The Roosevelt pecpla
_re sending ont thcunands of telegrams in all directions in an effort to bring
prc:sure to ber.r on the Taft delegates to violate their instructions and vote
for the colonel.
The Tcft people are going right on making all their preparations for tha
control of the convention, and a long conference. headed by Senatcr Rcot, waa
held tlvs afternoon at which the platform was discussed.
A careful i:*.cuiry among the New York delegates shows that the delegaticn
st.nds 77 for Taft, 9 for Roosevelt. 2 for Hughes and 2 uncommitted.
Colonel Roosevelt has spent his day and evening sending for men whom ha
believed susceptible to a personal appeal and seeking to persuade them that tha
intcrests cf the great common people depend on his nomtnation and election.
Soth campaign rnc'.c.'ers have issued various statements. each claiming
everything in fight, cr.d most of which will probably be taken with some degree
There have been inr.umerable rumors, for some of which the campaign man?
agers were responsible, or more or less to be attributed to excited adhcrenta
of the candldates. For tr.st-tnce, it was deelared by one enthusiastic Roosevelt
mzn that fifty-six Taft delegates had swung over to the colonel. but on investi?
gation :t was found that what Senator Dtxon had told this enthusiast was that
' nvr or six" delegates had <wung over.
There is considerable comment on the fact that neither the Roosevelt man?
agers nor Mr. Roosevelt himself have sclected a eandidate for temporary chair
man. and there is a suggestion that perhaps. after all, the colonel will decide to
abandon his effort to prevent the election of Senator Root. aithough that is as
emphatically denied at Roosevelt headquarters as was the report that Colonel
Roosevelt would come to Chicago.
The Taft managers still insist that they have in reserve more than eufft
cient deiegates instructed for Mr Roosevelt who will regard a fiop to the
colonei of delegates instructed for the President as abundant warrant for their
disregarding their instructions, but they are unwtlltng to disclose the name.
for the cbvious reason that such a course would concentrate on these men all
the fire of the Roosevelt forces. G. G. H.
