Chosen Temporary Chairman Over
of "Old Guard."
Saratoga, N. Y.. September 27.-Col.
Theodore Roosevelt rode today on the
top wave of victory, defeating Vice
President Sherman for temporary
chairman of the Republican State
convention and bowling over the "Old
Guard" in the first engagement of a
series of conflicts that are to come.
Col. Roosevelt was in his element.
After he had named the members
of the three important committees and
the convention had adjourned to meet
tomorrow, the colonel turned to the
newspaper men and remarked:
"I said 'frazzle,' you may quote me
At Troy yesterday the former Presi
dent said he would beat his opponents
to a "frazzle."
There were 1,013 votes cast in the
convention, of which Col. Roosevelt
received 568 and Vice-President Sher
man received 443, this electing the
leader of the "progressives" by a ma
jority of 125. Col. Roosevelt did not
vote. Mr. Sherman voted for John
Doe and two of the New York county
delegates did not respond when their
names were called. The vote as of
ficially announced at the convention
gave Roosevelt 567 and Sherman 445,
but an error in the count was discov
Col. Roosevelt spoke feelingly, say
ing that the laws passed reflect high
credit "upon all who succeeded i
ting them in their present shape upon
the statute- book; they represent an
earnest effort of the achievement
which is yet to come, and the bene
ficence and far-reaching importance
of this work done for the whole peo
ple measures the credit which is right
ly due to the congress and to our able,
upright and distinguished president.
Wm. Howard Taft."
Applaud Primary Plank.
The spectators and man7 of tne
delegates warmly applauded the de
claration of Col. Roosevelt for a di
rect primary plank.
Col. Roosevelt bitterly assailed the
"bosses," declaring that "the differ
ence between a 'boss' and a leader is
that the leader leads and the 'boss'
drives. The difference is that the
leader holds his , place by firing the
conscience and appealing to the rea
son of his followers and that the
'boss' holds his place by crooked and
Thunders of applause greeted the
colonel as he was escorted to the
speaker's stand by Vice-President
Sherman and Cornelius V. Collins, and
it was some time before he could pro
ceed with his speech. Thanking the
delegates for the honor that they had
conferred on him, the colonel caused
the greatest enthusiasm when he said:
"You shall not have cause now or
hereafter to regret what you have
It was a day of oratory; it was a day
of bitter and' acrimonious speech. With
the opening of the convention, State
Chairman Woodruff defined the posi
tion of the "Old Guard" and announc
ed that Mr. Sherman had been selected
for temporary chairman. And then the
real fight was on. Col. Abraham Gru
ber, of New York City, had been se
lected to fire the verbal shot of the
"Old Guard," and his speech attack
ing the former president which was a
bitter arraignment of him, was often
broken and drowned by hisses and
jeers. No one enjoyed Gruber's
speech more than Col. Roosevelt, who

MOTHER'S HORRIBLE DEED.
Negress Leaves Children to Perish in
Anderson September 27.-Mary
Gary, a negress about 30 years old,
last night placed her two little daugh
ters, aged 3 and 5 years, in a barrel
half filled with water, rolled the bar
rel against her house and set fire to
the house. She then departed to a
neighbor, nearly a half mile distant,
and told what she had done. The fire
burned rapidly and in a few minutes
the house was one mass of flames. The
5--year-old girl managed to out out
of the barrel and started off for as
sistance. Before assistance came,
however, the barrel had become en
massed in flames and the little 3-year
old girl was burned to a crisp.
This happened ten miles from An
derson. Coroner Beasley went to the
scene today and his jury returned a
verdict, stating that the little girl
came to her death from drowning or
burning, or both.
The Gary woman was brought to
the county jail tonight, and when ask
ed why she committed the deed, said
that she just took a notion to get rid
of the children and decided to accom
plish it that ray. She said that she
wanted to desert her husband and did
not want to leave the children in his
care. The woman talked as if she rea
lized the seriousness of her act. Her
mind does not seem to be affected,
though she claims that the -death of
her child last March made her go
