Baitimor?-. Md., June 2'1.?Th?? first
?rder of business at t!,,- Democratic
National Convention will be -i deter?
mined attempt to
put the soft pedal
on William Jen
nlncf Bryan. To
that end .1 coterie
of handy silencers
.has been selected
and is working
earnestly with the
arriving ni'itiWn
?>f the national
committee The
plot Is to tnke Mr.
Bryan in nand at
the earliest pos?
sible moment and
do what can be
fiamurl (.. Dirt he. done towards
eliminating him
tu a llciator. whl- h position, it Is
claimed hy many, he has assumed, or,
to be more explicit, he la endeavoring
to retain.
11.? fact is Mr Bryan Is ?Uli the
.grrcnien individual force in the Dem?
ocratic party, and the further fact Is
that he knows It full well. Hence.
With no desire to become a secondary
force, and with no Intention of relin?
quishing either position or perquisites,
he has protested against the selection
of Judge Alt"n B Barker as temporary
chairman of the convention which r.icots
next Tuesday.
He-ae-nihlra ( hlragn situation.
The situation has many resemblances
to the situation In Chicago Juat be?
fore the convention met there. Mr.
Roosevelt, whfj also hud dictatorship
Visions, protested against thu selec?
tion Of Senator Blihu Hoot as tempo?
rary chairman. The first tight In mat
convention was on Hoot, but In that
fight Roosevelt and his men mad* their
gr,at,st mistake.
They went to Chicago denouncing
the so-called "theft" of many dele?
gates by the national committee and
claiming they would not abide by any
affirmative decision made by a con?
tention containing those delegates.
Then, after losihK, they abode by
several de, Is oris. Koosevelt's Kie.it
strength was to tie up tho organiza?
tion of that convention, or to bolt
right at the start. He could have tak?
en out his delegates mid claimed to
be as much the Bepulll'Bn party as
the Taft men could be, for he was
Just as regular as Taft while the con?
tention was unorganised. However,
as soon as Root was nominated and
the convention was organised Taft be?
came the regulir Bepuhllcnn and
Boost velt was outside the breast?
works.
Bitter Against Barker.
Now at Baltimore Mr. Bryan Intends
to tight Judge Barker. He protests
violently against the selection of
barker by the subcommittee of too
aiaUtonal eommjilteo on the ground
that f'.irkei Is not a progressive
.Democrat. Mr. Bryan Is entirely right
in that. Mr Parker is as conserva?
tive a Democrat as i'nc party can
boast. Still. Mr. Barker is tho Dem?
ocratic too t for President In

Nicholas Murray Butler. of New

There had been a constant effort all
last night and all to-day on the part I
'of some of the Tuft chieftains to in

accept the vlce-presldentlal nomlna

'Governor was favorable to the pro?

nominate you for Vice President.
They'll get ?11 they can out of you. and
when they squeeze you dry they will

CONVENTION IN AUGUST
One of Cardinal Principles of

Shalt Not Steal."
Chicago, 111., June 22.?Former Presi?
dent Theodore Roosevelt was nomi?
nated for President on nn tndep. r.dent
ticket to-night In the dying hours of
the Republican National Convention -n
which he had met defeat.
The followers of Colonel Roosevelt
gathered In Orchestra Hall, less than .*
mile from the Coliseum, anil pl?lgeil
their support to the former President.
In accepting the nomination Colonel
Roosevelt appealed to the people of all
sections, regardless of party aiMla
tlons, to stand With the founders of the
new party, one of whose cardinal prin?
ciple.-, he said, was to be ?'Thou .shall
not steal." He said:
"Gentlemen, 1 thank you for your
nomination, and In you I recognize tlte
lawuflly elected delegates to the llepub.

Announcement That Taft Had

While Colonel's Followers
Hasten Away to Give
Him Nomination.
Convention Hall. Chicago, June .
22.?With nearly 350 of the
Roosevelt delegates declining ^to
vote and hastening away at ad?
journment time to tender to Ool-,
onel Theodore Roosevelt the,
nomination of a new party, the
fifteenth Republican National
Convention, after a long and tu?
multuous session, to-night re
nominated William Howard Taft,
of Ohio, for President, and James
Schoolcrat't Sherman, of New
I York, for Vicc-Prcsident.
President Taft received 561 of
the 1,078 votes in the convention,
or twenty-one more than a ma?
jority.
The decision of the Roosevelt
people, under direction of their
leafier, to refrain from voting,
left no other candidate for the
presidency.
The announcement of the Taft
nomination was greeted with
cheering from his adherents and
groans and hisses from the oppo?
sition.
When it became absolutely,
certain early to-day that Mr. Taft
would be nominated without
great difficulty, the leaders in
control of the convention decided
to give him as a running mate
his companion on the ticket In
1908. >
All others dropped from the
race, and Mr. Sherman was--the
only candidate regularly placed
before the convention. A motten
from New Hampshire to make
trie "nomination by acclamation
was declared out of order.
There were many scattering
votes on the roll call that ensued.
Adjourns Amid Confusion.
The convention, amid much
confusion, adjourned sine die at
10:30 o'clock.
At no time was there an Indi?
cation of a walkout of Roosevelt
j delegates. They expressed their
j revolt by silence.
In the confusion just before
adjournment a resolution wna
