How It Happened
Chicago June 19The hands
guiding the steam roller applied the
i brakes for fortyfive minutes Wed =
4A ne day while the delegates to the
4 National Republican Convention en
gaged in a spectacular demonstra
t
tion cleverly led up to by Senator
Lodge who concluded the first half
of his speech as permanent chairman
a speech which by the way deserves
to take its place as one of the strong
est of the Republican campaign doc
uments with the declaration that
the President is the best abused
land the most popular man in the
1 k United States today
Then he considerately retired to
the rear platform while the South
ern delegations somewhat fearful of
theresult of the vote on the Burke
resolution which they knew would
come up later in the day led all the
rest in their vocal and gymnastic ex
V hibition of devotion to Theodore
I Roosevelt and his policies
V Mf From a purely spectacular stand
ts standr
r that will not be soon forgot by any
one who witnessed it Above the
heads of the members of every dele
+ gation United States flags were
1 waved by seemingly frenzied enthu
siasts tr From the flopr of the great
Coliseum with its temporary popu
lation of 12000 men and women
there came a steady roar of cheers
taken up and given back with right
t
good will by the balconies and the
stage in which handsomely gowned I
women vied with the men in their
unchecked display of enthusiasm
For fortyfive minutes the cheer
ing continued At times almost dy
ing away and again swelling to full
volume through the successf filly con
trived introduction of a Teddy Bear
which made its way from press box
to platform and from platform to
one state delegation after another
held always high in air and by the
unexpected and genuinely spontane
ous contributions to the big show
made by individuals whose imagi
nation wasquickened and zeal un t
loosed by the contagious spirit of
the game
The result produced was all that
the friends of Mr Taft could ask
The demonstration for Mr Roose
velt exceeded by fifteen minutes in
point of time any which has ever
tshrbee y American in a
convention of either political party
When that point was reached Mr
Lodge put an end to the proceedings
without difficulty and the last un
certainty that William Howard Taft
would be chosen on the first ballot
of the Chicago convention as the Re
publican nominee for president was
removed
Next in order after the Roosevelt
tribute was the meeting and defeat
ing of the unexpected move inaug
urated by the allies on Tuesday when
James FrancisiJurke of Pennsylva
nia offered a resolution to the effect
that in future national conventions
of the Republican party each State
shall be entitled to four delegatesat
large and one additional delegate
for each 1000 votes or majority
fraction thereof cast for the Repub
lican candidates at the preceding
national election
Mr Taft owes his nomination to
the votes in this convention of eleven
Southern States which as Mr Burke
said in support of his resolution nev
er have and never will under exist
ing conditions cast an electoral vote
for a Republican nominee
The debate on Resolution was pre
cipitated by means of a minority re
port offered on the report of the
Committee on RuM It had back
of it the solid supp l f such States
as New York and P lsylvania with
icontlnuea on Fifth Panes

The organization is the only one of
its kind occupying as it does a field
midway between the Symphony Or
chestra and the usual socalled Con

about partly by a novel combination
of instruments but in the main it is
owing to the original methods of
Innes himself Even as a young
lad playing an instrument in the
band of Her Majestys First Life
Guards Innes had in him the unde
veloped making of a great director
He was a tireless worker and rest
less thinker and he soon began to see I
that there were great possibilities inI
a band He saw that it could be
made to appeal to all classes both to
those who love music for the rhythm
and brightness it brings as well as to
the scholarly musican who enjoys
the technical side and perfection of
the performance
Innes resolved to have such a band 1

the opportunity came it found him

Negro Jailed Charged With
Having Killed Another
Negro Near Pembroke
WAS IT A MURDER
Circumstances Lead to Be
lief that Victim Wasnt
Killed by Train
Nick Green colored was arrested
charged with murder Green was ac
cused of having killed John Ware
another negro near Pembroke last
Saturday night The body of Ware
was found lying by the side of the
railroad track near the Salubria
crossing about a mile north of Pem
broke
Ware left Pembroke only a short
time before he was killed in com
pany with several other negroes it
is said and it was his companions
who went back to Pembroke and re
ported having found this body after
the north bound St Louis express
had passed The negros skull was
crushed and there were some bruises
on his body
Concerning the affair the Pem
broke Journal says in part
The jury composed of three
white men and three colored ren
dered a verdict to the effect that
Ware was killed in a manner un
known apparently by a train
The coroner prepared a verdict
that he was killed by a train but
the white members of the jury re
fused to sign it There is scarcely
any reason to believe that the man
was killed by the train When the
body was found it was lying directly
beside the track with the head to
ward Pembroke If he had been
struck by the fast train the only
train that had passed between the
time he left town and the finding of
the body he would undoubtedly
have been hurled some distance from
the track and his body would have
been badly mangled
The grand jury investigated the
case Thursday and failed to indict
whereupon Green was released
