President Taft receelved the nomination for President at the hand
of the ctand-pat Republicans In Chicago Saturday night, defeating Ex
President Roosevelt, after one of the hardest fights ever waged In the
party ranks. Henceforth, tho party will be composed of two wings and
fight under separate banners. The Inner workings of the organization,
will no doubt, be brought to light by the opposing candidates. Unless
a compromise of somo sort Is effected, It will result In one of the most
spectacular political campaigns ever seen In the United States.
