AMBITION NOW
TO BE LEADER OF
"PROGRESSIVES"
(Continued From FITst rage.)
support of the bulk of the Repub?
licans In tho Western States, and that
he would expoet to derived consider?
able strength from the Democrats,
lie would not oxpress any opinion how
soon after the adjournment of tho
present convention the new party
would he formed, should such a rt< -
clsion be reached. .Whether rt would
be held In Chicago or elsewhere, and
whether It would be delayed until ut?
ter the Democratic National Conven?
tion, were points upon what no in?
formation could be obtained from
those In the confidence of the former
President The opinion was expressed
by some of 1:1s supporters that tho
outcome at Baltimore would have a
considerable bearing upon the situa?
tion.
Opinions Diner.:
Co'.onel Roosevelt paid there haft
Veen some difference of opinion umong
his supporters as to th^ advisability
of bolting. Tne Ohio delegates, he
said, felt that under their instructions
they should remain in the convention
until after the nomination wns made. '
? 'tiier 'leics.-v*?>. Including some of
those from California, were In favor
of withdrawing at once.
The jagreemetit Anally arrived ut
was reached at a caucus In which
were two representatives from each
of the States having Roosevelt dele
gales, as well as those States from
-which the Roosevelt candidates for
?eats in the conven/tflon have been!
excluded.
Decline to Br Round.
"The caucus passed unanimously n'
resolutloh Introduced by Hen-ry Allen.]
? f Kar,sr.?." said Colonel Roosevelt in
explaining the situation. "This reso?
lution was to the effect that the Re-1
publican party would not submit to'
having the nomination for President
determined by theft, and If the con?
vention declined to seat the delegates!
fraudulently unseated by the national;
committee. the Roos?velt delegates
would decline to be bound by any na?
tion of the convention.
"A second resolution was passed
later stipulating that tho Roosevelt'
oMegnte? would take pu t In the con-1
ventlon if the seventy-eight delegates
tr which we are entitled were seated,
and if they were not seated they would!
remain In the convener, and not par-j
tlclpate In it."
Colonel Roosevelt explained that the
relegates reserved the right to take:
what course they preferred as to leav?
ing the convention. Roosevelt leaders;
snid that it was the unanimous deel-.
tlc;i of their men that they would net
quit the hall. They will remain in
their seats while tho Taft program Is
Velr.g carried through, they said, and
when the convention Is over will con-j
tinue to hold th*Ir seats and proceed
to e.Tect their own orgatilr.atton.
Will Mipport No Compromise.
Colonel Roosevelt made it plain that'
he would not support any compromise
candidate nominated by the convention:
as at present constituted. He defined!
t.. make any statement in regard to
Governor Hadley or any other indivi?
dual, confining himself to an explnr.a-,
lion of his general pc-sit'on.
"Any man nominate*, by this con- '
ventlon r.s now competed." he reiter?
ated, "will not be tolerated by tho!
ROosevelt de'.egafs."
No ?ief.r.lte statement could be ob
talned from the Roosevelt leaders as
to the number of delegates they be?
lieved would support this program.
They expressed confidence that there
would bo no serious defections.
It was expected that or.e of the
chief reasons e>f th?* P.ooscvt-lt dele- 1
gaits for deciding not to withdraw I
from the convention was th* action
token to-day by the rul's committee,
which wo-ild enable tn% national com?
mittee to fil". seats vacated by other:
f. <?'.-gates.
The p'.&r. of eetlor. adopted by the
Roosevelt !end?rs is an abrupt change
from tv? position which was taken
by Colonel Roosevelt and his ?-losest
associates yesterday, but they denied
to-night that it was an admission
of weakness <~i their pset or trial
their decision not to bolt was because
the" could not obtain the strpport of
a ?ufSf.er.t r-v.mber of rVl'gatea.
Holt Talk Foolish.
Afterr-tr'f.ioT^l Roosevelt had per- \
tir.ol!'/ ?i'ff*. the tense situation
of the sfterrnoon he had among his
callers Governor Ktubbs. Of Kansas.
When the Governor had lel*t the con
f< rer.c? room he. too, announced that
"there will be no bolt."
"This talk of a boTt t? foolish.")
Eh id Governor Slubbs "Colonel Roole* ;
velt never h.-is mention**! the sub- j
Ject of a holt."
Afrer the late ,'afJ^?Tnoon confer?
ence In the Florentine roe.m of the
Congress .Hotel, where the Roosevelt;
Stets delegations and campaign lead
era counselled together, this format?
statement was issued from Campaign ]
Manager Dixon's headquarters.
"The Roosevelt delegates decided !
*.'.?>? -hey will not T'*r:n'.t the title to!

"Absolutely no bolt.'" was t>he declar- 1
stion of scores of ;he- delegates and
leader? e,f the RoosoVelt lerer-? when I
they left the night caurua which Col
onel Roosevelt addressed briefly.
"We will go int?, the convei tlpn and
fight :t out, and In the end Colonel
RooseVelt will be, nominated," said
Governor Stubb*. after the night cau?
cus was over.
"Governe;r ? Stubbs is r'.^'nr." said

of a third candidate, there ?tili is fome
compromise talk.
It f.i-ils. honverver, to crystallize, and
apparently is largely the expression of
favorite m>ii asjVji-vtion by the mass <>f
the delegates. This compromise talk
was the text of a statement given out
by William Harnes. Jr., of New York,
to-night, waioh staled without equl
: vocation that the Taft people were not
I considering now and would not con
s.ucr any compromise.
New Party lleluc Horn.
"The Roosevelt camp has gradually
divide,! into two groups," 'aid George
1-. Record, of New Jersey, to-night.
"A new party l* in the process Oi

of the Roosevoll camp two mo ups u.-<

stand-patters. If n compromise ticket
Is the outcome we must watt for other
times and other conditions to Shape
the new movement. If Roosevelt takes
tiie tieid as a candidate under what?
ever party name the new party is
born."
Senator IMxo.n to-ntghl Issued a
statement claiming Phat the Taft lead?
ers. "Barnes, Penrose, Crane and the
Other so-called Taft leaders." had de?
termined not to nominate Mr. Tnft.
and we;,, "dickering for a comprom Se
candidate."
The stati ment declared that ten In?
structed Taft delegates from one State
had offered to vote for Hughes; that
propositions had been made from the
Taft managers to friends of Senator
Cummins, and nhat Governor Hadleyj
had been approached with offers to
sacrifice Tnft if he would accept the
nomination.
"They are looking for a new man."
said Senator lllxon. "They have made

TUNNEL PIERCES

One of World's Greatest Re?

Washington June 10.?"Holed through
to-day. "
Tills,was the laconic message relayed
by telephone from Camp yulnton. in
the '.Va-satct. Mountains, Utah, and
flashed by v..:- to-day to the Recla?
mation Service here. Jt marked the
completion of the Strawberry Tunnel,
one '.f the ? e-st and most dlfflculti
pieces of eng.- .-ring work the Recla?
mation Servlci ever has been called
upon to undertake.
With one ex t-ptlon, this underground
waterway tunnel Is the largest In the
world. Many ird engineering prob?
lems had to be -.-erconie in planning it,
and greaj j,! al endurance was re
qulred of U.e n ..a who carried out the
work.
The tunnel pierces the solid rock of
on., of the hl( st peaks of the Wa
satch Mountali - at a point where those
eternal hills more than 10,000 feet
through. It M move a good-sized
stream, the Sti ic berry River, from one
drainage- basin to another forty-live
miles away. < ?nly 2.000 feet below
the snow-capped crest of the moun?
tains the tu:.:,, l has pierced Its rocky
way.
To the ."-o' ? md east of Utah T.nke.
In one ol : oal beautiful valleys In
the West, an 60,000 acres of exceed?
ing!:.- fertile land, now only partial?
ly product!vi for lack of water. To
transform t valley to a" rural set
i ement, doti< I with thriving towns
and villages ^nd barred with long
tows .,1 fru ? trees the government
engineers hii overcome almost un
heard-nf obslaclos.

i'he ramps are located n mile and a I
half above sea level, ?ml during sev?
eral months each winter have practl
cally been Isolated from the world,
the roads blocked by masses of snow
and Ice. Kor more than two years
the work has stone on without ceas?
ing! three shifts of men alternating
during the twenty-four hours of the
"ay and night. Thousands of gal?
lons of water, poisonous gases, and
swelling ground have made the work |
difficult and dangerous. The men '
tied for .^elr lives on several oc?
casions.
In I f? 1 ?*? the work of plarlng the
concrete lining was begun and since
has been carried on simultaneously:
with the excavation oi the heading.
This required skillful handling of men!
and material to avoid delay In either
feature of the work. Notwithstanding
the difficulties of the undertaking It
has been carried to completion wlth
cul the los.? of a single life.
Heyond the tunnel, in the shadow of
the granite peaks, a great reservoir
Is being lullt. A retaining dam of
rock, cement and steel is being built'
so deep that a six-story building might!
b* hidden behind It. Fed by melting
tnowa the waters will rise behind this]
structure, covering 8,200 acref, with
2 IS.000 arre-feet of water.
The valley to be Irrigated Is espec?
ially interesting, because it Is the
scene of the earliest Irrigation by
Anglo-Saxons In tho West Fettled by
Brlgbam Young and hla followers in
1*47. after their march through more
than 1.000 miles of unknown territory
peopled by savages, It 1? the oldest ex?
ample of community farmiiiK by an
Kngllsh apeuktnir people In the Wiest.
Kor protection against tbe Indians
the farmora lived In little towns
throughout tho valley. their houses
built close together und facing a com?
mon .streot, or square, thus jirac
ticully forming forts. Homo of these
old community houaon are still stand
lug. Tho orlgtnul /farms were, for
the most part, more than forty or fifty
norus In size, which may acoount to
some extont for tbe early suocsbs of
agrlculturo under extreme difficult
conditions.
When tho storage and distribution
system is llnlshea, and "o amplo wa
j tor supply assured for all time, the
j valley will support more than a thou?
sand farm homes. Halt Lake City and !
1 tho mmrby mining outnpB will furnish ?
a homo market for many of the pro- i
ducts, and three railroad Tfncs, which'
traverse the Irrigable area, will fur- |
nlsh unusual transportation facilities]
to tho outside world.
