It Oyster Bay, N. Y., IEny 1. Col Roosevelt renounced
ij his claim today to the eight dclegates-at-large to the "Rcpub-

yesterday. He wired that he would expect them to vote for -

vote. - -
B j Preference for Taft.
g Boston, May 3. Massachusetts emerged today from her first
3 f presidential preferential primary election to find "that the Rcpub-
I" 1 Heart voters had expressed a preference for the rcnomination of
: President Taft, but notwithstanding had given Col. Roosevelt. IS
of the 36 delegates to the national convention Roosevelt leaders
I said the Taft preference would have no effect on the IS delegates
chosen "for Roosevelt," and that the expression of the voter.1, for
Taft would be disregarded. a
I, The Democratic voters of the .slate expressed a preference for
rf Speaker Champ Clark, although, the -majority t the delegates -tfr-
Baltimore will go pledged to Governor Foss.
Just how Massachusetts could send an evenly divided delcga-
ii tion to Chicago while on the preference vote Taft lias a plurality of
; i 8,G00 over Roosevelt is partly explained by the wording of the state
presidential preferential primary law, enacted two months ago.
L 7 Errors in Voting-.
1 1 By that law cveiy voter, to have liis vote recorded, was com-
II pelled to mark each delegate-at-largc of his party, there being no
1 1 circle for voting by groups The law enabled hundreds of voters
I to mark the eight names in the delegation headed by C S Baxter
L and slled "for Theodore Roosevelt," and then express a prcfer-
M I ence for Taft on another part of the ballot.
ml On the Democratic ticket, although ten or the fifteen candi-
sTgl dates for delegates-at-large to Baltimore cither were pledged or
ml indicated to be "for" Governor Foss, there was no Foss names in
imi' the presidential preference column. Speaker Clark, whose name did
not appear m the preference and who defeated Governor "Wilson by
B ; a vote of two to one. did not have a single pledged delegate on the
lug! list. Many o'f the Democratic district delegates were elected to
f-gl Some Electors Invalidated Their Vos.
J; An incident which some observers say ma have had a bearing
gl on the selection o a Roosevelt delegation-at-large with a Taft
fojj preferential was the sandwiching in of the name of Former State
JB Senator Frank Seibertich, "pledged to Taft" between the Roose--
gll velt and Taft groups. Mr. Seibertich says he was ill-treated by the
Saj Taft managers and therefore ran independently. Reports from many
precincts show that hundreds of ballots were thrown out because j
I voters had invalidated their ballot by voting for nine instead of
b eight names, beginning with Seibertich' and going through the entire (
i! regular Taft column of eight names. The spaca between the name '
I i of Seibertich and the Taft group was slight."

ygjfrlj From the reports of the very first

a'.Mt word midnight the president forged

rM tween Baxter and Ciane, the resoect-
ive leaders of the Roosevelt and Taft
delegatea-at-large, was close onh for
a few hours. The Baxter ciowd drew

A tabulation oi the lctunib from 23
out or 33 cities for all the Republican
candidates for delegates-at-large
shows very little vailatlon from the
Baxter and Crano votes.
