Delegates Rush Through
Business on Final Day;
Convention Comes to End
Chicago, June 22. William Howard Taft was "renominated for President of the United States
by the Republican National Convention at 9:25 o'clock to-nightv
Less than an hour later James Schoolcraft Sherman was renominated for the Vice Presidency.
The nominations were made on the first ballot. Senator La Follette's name was the onIyname
presented to the convention for the Presidential nomination besides that of Taft, Sherman's was the
only name presented for the Vice Presidency. A motion made to make his nomination unanimous was
objected to and a roll call ordered.
The vote for the Presidential nomination was:
Taft, 561; Roosevelt, 107; La Follette, 41; Cummins, 17; Hughes, 2. Present and not voting, 348;
The vote on the Vice Presidential nomination was:
Sherman; 597; Borah, 21; Merriam, 20; Hadley, 14; Beveridge, 2; Gillette, 1. Absent, 71; not
CONVENTION ADJ0UBNS AT 10:29 P. M.
The convention adjourned at 10:29 p. m.- ,
There were two excitinc features of the long session, which began at 10' in the morning and
continued till nearly midnight
lwo hours before the nomination of iaft,. the personal boom ot Ineodore Koosevelt gave its
last expiring gasp in a twenty-five minutes' demonstration.
Roosevelt- hung to his delegates, who had already planned to gather with him in the new mass
meeting in Orchestra Hall.
Idaho alone, of the Roosevelt men, fell away from him, seven of Senator Borah s constituents voting
for Cummins. The expected Hadley boom never raised a whisper. Cummins was not nominated, and
the passing tribute of a cheer from Barnes was the only greeting that came to the two v tes for Hughes
' When ft was all over and Sherman had been nominated in a gallop, Penrose looked at "Crane
and Crane looked at Root and they all three looked at each other. They had driven Roosevelt out
of the party.
As for the Taft delegates, tired, disheveled, utterly disgusted, without even a word for their can
didate, they began streaming to their hotels and then to their trains, the sickest lot of Republicans that
ever gathered together in convention.
NEAR EI0T TAKES PLACE.
The second incident was a near-riot in the Massachusetts delegation precipitated by. Root when,
during the roll call he began to get nervous about the count.
When the- delegates from the Codfish State, their minds made up to have no hand in the
matter, refused to vote when their names were called, Root ordered that the names of the alternates
be called. He knew that he would pick up a few Taft delegates in that way and just then he fancied
he might need them.
As soon as this order was issued Delegate Fosdyke, a gray bearded man who looks like James
G. Blaine, arose and shouted:
"Massachusetts is a. law abiding State,and you, hadtbetter not attempt that kind of robbery."
BULES VOTES' MUST BE CAST.
After the yells and cheers that greeted this defiance had subsided, Root strode to the edge of the
platform, a couple of husky secretaries beside him to prevent trouble, and said:
"If a delegate to this convention refuses to do his duty by casting his vote his alternate must do
it for him. The names of the alternates will be called."
When he walked back he said to the secretary: "Send the police to that aisle."
The police went there, thirty of them. The Massachusetts men were in the exact center of the
building, standing on their chairs, shaking their fists, hissing and hurling execrations at the chairman,
who had retired to his desk. Presently they quieted down and voted. They lost four votes, but they
gained one point of more importance.
Root never again during the roll call insisted on the call of alternates. Once or twice they were
called, but they never voted against their principals' desires.

An hour after William Howard Taft

In a "declaration" which repeats tne cry
of "fraud"" and robbery which Col.

(that thty alone represented the will of
the majority of the Republican parly.
Here is their "declaration":

make tne following declaration:
W'. were delegated by a majority of
the Republican voters of our respective
districts and States to nominate Theo
dore Roosevelt in the Republican Na
tlonal ConvenUon as the candidate of
our party for President, and thereby
carry out the win of tne voters as ex
pressed at the primaries. We have earn

sufficient number of fraudulently elected
delegates to control the proceedings of

tion with one another put themselves

"We have exhausted every known
means to head off this conspiracy, and to
prevent this fraud upon the popular will,
but without success..
