President's Supporters Will
Give Facts Regarding All
WHITE HOUSE STATEMENT
Colonel's Own Methods of Try
ing to Force His Nomination
Will Be Exposed for
Benefit of Voters.
[From The Tribune Bureau.!
Washington, July 19.?Stung to ac?
tion by the reiterated charges of
?'olonel Roosevelt and his supporter?,
the men who were in part responsible
for the unseating of the RooBevelt con?
testants for seats in the Republtean
NaUonal Convention purpose to tell
?ongress and the country the actual
truth about the Roosevelt contests*?.
They will tell of the determined effort
of Colonel Roosevelt and Ma henchmen
to gain control of the mationul conven?
tion by means of more than two hun?
dred and fifty contests for delegates
and the rage of the third term candi?
date because he could not force his
own nomination by ?eating delegates
whose cases were no rank that, v*,lth
few exceptions, no one of them received
even the unanimous vote of the avowed
Roosevelt members of the Republican
Representative Bartholdt whoso long
and honorable service In Congress has
won for him the respect of all save
those who hate arbitration and loathe
universal peace as productive of "soft
living." and who. as proxy for Secre?
tan' "Nagel, ant with the national com?
mittee, will tell the House the facts re?
garding many of the cases which came
before It, while Senator Root will in?
form the Senate regarding some of tho
caset which came before the creden?
tials committee of the convention and
regarding his rulings, notably that in
which he called tho name? of the
alternates from Massachusetts when
their principals, who had been In?
structed to vote (or President Taft
and who had been admonished by
Colonel Roosevelt to do so, sat silent
and refused to reply to their names.
Representative Olmstead. Of Penn?
sylvania, whose service in the House
entltleM what he says to confidence and
respect, and Representative Mondell
will also discuss cf-rtain phases of the
? '.-.its. and will make clear the worse
: absurdity of the claim that tho
Roosevelt fores were "steam rulieivu '

Ojster Bay. July 13.?Colonel Roosevelt
1? ?pending hour after hour at Sagamore
Hill this week hard at work on the most
momentous document that he bat ever
penned?the platform of the Progressive
National or "third party." It Is th?
work, above all things, Into which he
puts his whol** heart, and. moreover. It
Is, from hi?, standpoint, valuable time
well Hpent. Bt realize? that the press
and people of the whole nation are await?
ing Its publication, and on the strength
and solidity of It ho realties a great
measure of hit party's success will rest.
Its Importance, In Colonel Roosevelt's
estimation, ha? given rise to a sharp di?
vision of opinion among hostile poli?
ticians regarding the stability of the third
party movement, and all because the
head and shoulder? of the new party,
arter deelarlng that he niuat remain at
home and give his whole time to laying
planks on the platform, gave up hie pro?
jected Middle Western speaking trip,
where he ?.would have strengthened his
position in Michigan, Iowa and Kansas.
The fact that Colonel Roosevelt catt
uM<le tho opportunity to talk to th<?
people ?n states which arc nominally his
strongholds hat cauted some to say that
nothing short of a grave polltlcr.I crlsli
at home could have brought him to such
an unlooked for decision. They nay that

[ By Telegraph to The Tribune. I
Sea Girt, N. J., July 19.?There Is a
Strong probability that William O. Mc
Adoo, the tunnel builder, will be chosen
at, vice-chairman of the Democratic Na?
tional Committee. After discussing the
various detall? of the coming campaign
with the Qovernor at his cot tag** here until
almost midnight last night, eight of his
tried and truo advlsera got together at
the New Monmouth Hotel, at Spring Lake.
this morning and talked and planned ?orne
Qovernor Wilson was not at this morn?
ing's conference, neither was William O
McAdoo, and this served to strengthen the
belief that McAdoo will be named aa vice
The vice-chairmanship was one of the
things discussed this morning, ami, ac?
cording to on.? on th* Inslile of what took
place In the little room In the Spring Lake
hotel, the selection Of Mr. McAdoo has
been practically ?leclded upon.
No decision has as yet been rea?.he?l on
the treasurership. The name of Henry
Morgenthau, John t>. ?'rlmmlns, Nathan
Strau* and Herman Kldder, the pfrVesnl
incumbent, were among those brought up.
and it now looks an though Mr. Ridder can
\iu.\e the place If he wants it. Mr. Rid?
der Is expected to testify before the com?
mittee that Is investigating campaign,
funds at Washington to-morrow, und the
tip has gone forth that hi? testimony will
prove a bit,- bell? to the Democrats.
Mr. MeComba bad a llnal talk with Gov?

to meet Norman K. alack, at the Knicker?
