Comment on the Result
of the Illinois
Washington. April 10. "Tho result
in' Illinois was not unexpected to
those familiar with tho Bituatlon,"
said Representative McKinlcy, direc
tor of the National Tafl bureau to
day, In the first comraont from the
President's sldo, of tho Illinois pri
"The issues which occupied tho at
tention of tho people of the state wero
so peculiarly local as to cause tho
presidential issue to be lost sight of,
so fnr as Prcsldont Taft was con
cerned." "I say this advisedly," Mr. McKln
ley continued, "and for thio reason:
Mr. Roosevelt recently invaded tho
state and devoted the major portion
of his addresses to subjects which had
no relation whatever, foi the most
part, to the issues on which tho Re
publican party must meet tho Demo
cratic parly in November.
."Tho questions discussed by Mr.
Roosovolt In his speeches had. llttlo
to do with the actual Issues which ho
has raised between himself and Mr.
Talked State Is'sues.
"In other words, Mr. Roosevelt par
ticipated In the campnign in Illinois
with all tho freedom of a full-fledged
citizen of the state and met and talked
to voters of Illinois on the subjects
which were uppermost In their minds
namely, state Issues."
The participation of eight candi
dates for the Republican nomination
for governor resulted in "complete
breaking down of all party organiza
tion, said Mr. McKinlcy slatomcnl.
"and new alignmenta. wore brought
"These new organizations Mr
Roosevelt was able to reach by per
sonal contact, an experienco which
President Taft could not onjoy," says
Director McKinlcy. "The result in
Illinois has no bearing whatever on
the outcome of tho presidential con
test in tho Republican parly qxcept
lusofar as it expresses tho desires of
Illinois based on purely local issues.
Never Claimed Illinois.
"I have never, in any public sLite
ment, claimed a single delegate from
'Illinois In the Chicago convention and
have never Included any in my cal
culations, when I have said repeated
ly that President Tuft will have more
voles in tho Chicago convention this
year than ho had in J90S when he re
ceived 702 votes. I repeat that pre
diction now and am absolutely "confi
dont of Its vindication.
'l no other state in the unlpli are
conditions existing where Mr. 'Rooso
velt can make the. same kind of a
campaign as he did in Illinois. To
the voters of other states he will have
to confine himself to the national Is
sues, Including the proposal of tho
recall of Judges and tho third-term
SENATOR DIXON'S COMMENTS.
"The day of the hondpicked, machine-made
delegate to nominate a
presidential candidate is over. The
day of the nomination of tho candi
date by the direct expression of the
will of the voters has come." .
That was the comment on the Illi4
nols primary by Senator Dixon, mnn-3
ngcr of the Roosovclt campaign com
mittee. The Republicans of Illinois, by an
avalanche majority of 120,000 have
served notice that they are unalter-
ably opposed to (ho reactionary poli
cies of Taft and to tho reactionary
bosses to whom he has permitted his
manngors to commit his political for
tunes," continued Senator Dixon.
No Orders From White House,
"The overwhelming sentiment in
favor of tho nomination of Colonel
Roosevelt has at Inst forced itself
home to the administration leaders.
Tho time has come whon tho Repub
lican votors of the country will no
longer take orders either from tho
Whlto House or from tho machine
representatives of business as to their
candidate for the presidency."
The Roosovolt natloual headquar
ters claimed for Colonel Uoosovelt 130
delegates, with other figures as fol
lows: Taft, 50; La Follctto, 36; Cum
The Tnft headquarters, omitting the
58 Illinois delegates from its figures
on tho ground that tho final figures
as lo the various districts wore not
yet available, made the following
claims of delegates:
Taft. 313, Roosovolt, 39; La Fol

American Gunner Ex
ecuted by Mexican
Rebels Near Parral
El Paso, Texas, April ID. An Amer
ican newspaper man who returned to
day from Parral with 181 American
and other foreign refugees from tho
battloswept district, brought news of
tho execution of Thomas Fountain of
Las Cruces, N. M., by tho rebels.
Fountain was captain of a fcdoral gun
under General Paucho Villa. When j
Villa retreated last Thursday night,
Fountain removed certain parts of tho
piece and concealed himself In a pri
vate residence. The occupants wero

Ho was armed with a revolver, but
made no resistance. On Mondoy ho
was compelled to show the rebels
whore he had secreted the missing
parts of hin raphl-fircr; was tried by
court martial and condemned to death,
apparently for having disabled the
American residents made every ef
fort to secure a modification of tho
sentence, but without avail. Finolly
American Consul Lotcher at Chihua
hua gent to General Salazar what is
believed to hac been an appeal from
Washington that his mc be spared.
In delivering tho missive to a mes
senger the consul iuarked "this is
the last resort."
In Moxlco they havo recourse to
uhat is known ns the "law of flight"
under which a prisoner who has been
condemnod. but where there exists
a doubt ns to the legality of the sen
tence, is allowed his freedom within
certain limits. The prisoner knows
that Ills fato is scaled. Even if he
does not walk a step, from some un
expected quarter the fatal bullet will
come and the report will bo made j
that ho was shot while "In flight.'
II was thus In Fountain's caso. Ho
told the correspondent that thore was
no hope, but strolled about the streets
waiting for death.
When his body was brought in It
contained four bullet wounds made
by shots fired from behind.
Tho young man's father was Col.
Alhort 'Fountain, who. with another
Hon, was shot by cattle rustlers in
Now Mexico fifteen years ago.
Col. Fountain was one of tho mo$t
