A lot of soiled Republican linen thrown
on the line In the House of Represen
tatives yesterday angered regular leaders
and near-Progressives who had hoped
that the factional tight started in the
Chicago convention would not again be
revived .In this campaign Representa
tive Frank W. Mondell. of 'Wyoming, a
regular, who served on the credentials
committee at Chicago, and Representa
the George W. Norris, of Nebraska, a
Progressive who has fought President
Tatt from the beginning of his admin
istration engaged in a war of words
that was frequently applauded by the
Democrats but received almost In si
lence by the Republican side of the
In defense of the speech made by Rep
resentative Mondell It was explained by
Taft leaders that Col. Roosevelt has
charged that the Taft nomination at Chi
cago was attained by fraud Friends of
the President Insisted that It was lm
peratlve that the Roosevelt charge should
be answered In a formal way, and that
Representative Mondell, who was a mem
ber of the credentials committee, was
better Qualified, by reason of his knowl
edge of the evidence, than any other
man In official life Representative Mon
dell spoke for more than three hours. He
characterized the Roosevelt charge that
the Taft nomination at Chicago was ef
fected by fraud as "hypocrisy," and pre
sented data that tended to show that the
majority of the delegates admitted at
Chicago were legally entitled to their
seats. Representative Norrls followed
Representative Mondell. Both of them
were followed with keen interest. For
the first time In many weeks nearly
evety seat in the House was occupied
Speaks of Contests.
Mr Mondell s speech was a strong one
from the Taft standpoint. He. anal) zed
the evidence in all the contests, pajlng
special attention to the contests arising
In Texas, Washington. California, and
the Ninth District of Alabama.
Representative Norr s charged that
Tatt was nominated bj a majorlt of
nineteen, that at least seventy delegates
were seated In behalf of Taft without
shadow of claim to their seats, and
that the nomination of Taft "was null
and void, and that no Republican was
obligated to support the ticket.
Mondell Points Ont Discrepancies-
Mr Mondell In beginning pointed out
that Roosevelt's charges of theft were
directed against a party with a great
and honorable history, and not against
Individuals. Mr. Mondell added that
men and parties do not become corrupt
A party that will do a great wrong
to-day," said he, "could not have been
honest jesterday, last jear, or four
years ago. and et a majority of
ths National Committee which de
cided these cases were members of
the committee four ears ago when Mr
Roosevelt was pleased with and Indorsed
the committee's work In the conven
tion among the majority were many who
had been personal and political friends of
Mr Roosevelt when he was President,
and had enjoyed his confidence Has'
the character of all these men changed"
Representative Mondell added that If
a great party could become corrupted
between Presidential campaigns so as to
commit the political crimes charged
against the Republicans, the party Itself
was not only in a bad way, but the
country Is beond redemption
"If a party of which Mr. Roosevelt
had the support and an organization
which four years ago he trusted." said
Mr Mondell. "could In so brief a time be
come so lost to all sense of decency,
what hope Is there for a new party which
ne might create
Representative Mondell said that the
Roosevelt charges of larceny at Chicago
were designed not only to contribute to
the third party movement, but to furnish
an excuse for the most Impudent and
revolutionary plan of political larceny
'It is proposed," said Mr Mondell
steal the livery and secure the benefits
of Republican State organization, while
at the same time repudlatng the party
and Its candidates. It Is difficult to con
ceive a more shameless proposal of pure
piracy than this In Pennsj lv anla, for
Instance, about a third of the Republi
cans of the State expressed a preference
for Mr. Roosevelt for President. He was
not nominated, but the men who were
temporarily placed In command of the
Republican ship by a third of the Re
publican voters are expected. I am told,
to continue to fly the Republican flag at
the masthead and secure whatever bene
fits can thus be obtained, with the ex
pectation of eventually, whatever hap
pens, scuttling the ship after having got
away with the cargo "
Were to Confuse Issue.
Mondell declared that of the 238 con
tests originally brought by the Roose
velt people. 146 were abandoned by them
before reaching the convention or Its
"The overwhelming majority," said Mr.
Mondell, "were brought deliberately for
me purpose of confusing the issue, mis
leading the public and laying the foun
dation for the outrageous charees which
followed. The Southern contests were too
raw tor tne stomachs of even the most
prejudiced Roosevelt supporters. These
contests were simply gotten up to fool
"One who has looked into the history
of the contests before the Republican
National Convention," said Mondell,
"cannot help being impressed with- the
striking similarity of the methods em
plojed in widely separated localities.
Given a certain state of facts for in
stance, a clear minority in a county, a
district, or State convention and the
same procedure followed, whether it was
in Washington, Michigan, or Alabama.
"The stage was set In advance for a
bolt or a riot, or both, by a plentiful
supply of contests, and where the affair
was in cool and practiced hands, the en
tire procedure, including reports of com
mlttees that were never appointed, were
made up beforehand. The procedure was
so uniform everywhere that one Is forced
to the conclusion that It was all part of a
deliberately planned and . carefully exe
cuted scheme of campaign."
Mr. Norrls traced the evidence in the
Washington. Tptbi fallfnmla .nd Ala
bama cases. His conclusion dlfferedJ
from that of Mr. Mondell's. "As a re
publican I submit," declared Mr. Nprrts.
"that if I come to the conclusion, sb I
have In this Instance, that a nominee
has been given the nomination by dis
honorable means. It is not only my duty
as a citizen, but as a member of the
Republican party, to denounce it and to
denounce it openly. Mr Taft's nomina
tion is tainted with fraud. It is pull, it
Is void, and Is entitled to no consider
ation from anybody. Fraud has vitlsted
contracts from the beginning 6f civlillza
tion, and 'fraud, ought, and at least in a
moral sense does vitiate a nomination,
even though there is no law that can
control national conventions."
