So Much Disorder Eesults From Interruptions That Sen
ator Soot Threatens to Put Some Delegates Out of
the Eall Cecil Lyon Is Characterized by One
of the Speakers as a Fallen Boss Ari
zona Contest Brought into the Debate.
Convention Hall, Chicago, 111., June 19. With interest so intense as
almost to preclude applause, the Republican national convention at 4:30 was in
the midst of an argument on the motion of governor Hadley, of Missouri, to
"purge" the temporary" roll of 92 delegates contested by the Roosevelt faction,
but seated by the nationalcommittee.
It seemed likely that the debate and the vote on the question would last
The debate on the question was exceedingly hot and personal at times.
Hadley defended his own motion and senator Hemenway, of Indiana,
was among those who spoke against the motion.
Hemenway said that of the 14 members of the national committee pro-

Hemenway attacked Cecil Lyon, of Texas, as a powerful boss, whose
influence had been broken at last.
During the speaking the lie was passed between Captain W. E. English
and W. H. Dye, of the Indiana delegation, and great confusion followed.
Mayor Shanks, of Indianapolis, said Geo. L. Record, one of the speakers, was
a liar. "He can get a scrap out of me if he wants it."
Chicago. 111., June 19. The second
day of the fifteenth Republican national
convention opened -with 16 hours of
stubborn lighting ahead and the out
come of the contest for the presi

were four possibilities. The nomina
tion of Taft, the nomination of Roose
veltvelt, the nomination of a third
candidate, and the possibilities for a
second or double convention. Backers
of any of these were plentiful.

forces have tested their strength fur
ther on roll calls.
Although the convention faced the
real struggle of the Roosevelt leaders
to obtain control of the v permanent
roll of delegates, there was a noticeable
lack of excitement or enthusiasm about
the convention hall.
Soon after chairman Root had ar
rived at 10:54 a. m. he was flanked on
one side by governor Hadley, the
Roosevelt leader, and on the other by
James Watson, of the Taft forces.
As a preliminary to the day's ex
pected hostiliteis. all three shook hands
"and retired to their corners."
Governor Hadley and Watson ar
ranged for an equal division of three
hours' debate that was to be allowed
on the Roosevelt proposition to sub
stitute a roll containing 92 Roosevelt
delegates in place of 92 Taft followers,
seated by the national committee.
Before calling the convention to or
der, chairman Root and the other offi
cers of the convention posed for a
series of pictures. This helped to de
lay matters several minutes beyond the
scheduled hour, 11 oclock.

Convention Gets Down to Business.
Senator Root announced that the un
finished business of the day was the
motion of Watson that the convention
proceed to the appointment of the
regular committees and the substitute
motion of governor Hadley that the
Roosevelt list of delegates be substi
tuted for the temporary rolL
He also mounced an agreement to
three hours' debate and asked if there
was objection. There was not. It had
been agreed in advance that there
should be no parliamentary points of
order against the Roosevelt motion,
the Taft forces agreeing to fight the
matter owt before the delegates.
As governor-Hadley advanced to the
front of the stage to open, the debate,
a round of cheers from the Roosevelt
forces greeted him. When the tumult
subsided, governor Hadley began an
explanation of the situation confront
ing the convention.
Hadley Begins Address.
He reviewed the events of yesterday
leading up to the ruling of national
committee chairman Rosewater, which
quashed the Hadley motion to purge
the temporary roll.
"We could nave met immediately and
forcibly undone this arbitrary and un
parliamentary rt , -g." said Hadley, and
he was roundly cheered.
"Instead we chose to wait patiently
Governor Hadley read the "indict
ment" of the national committee as
uttered by colonel Roosevelt in his
Monday night speech in this city and
it called out a big cheer.
"It may be true that there are many
persons who do not agree with us that
Theodore Roosevelt 3hould be our can
didate for president, but there can be
no difference of opinion that his voice
today is the greatest of the western
arid," said Hadley.
Pleads His Cause Strongly.
He then read a statement of 14
mem', ers of the national committee
protesting against the action of the
majority in seating many of the dele
gates, particularly In the California.
Texas and Washington cases.
Governor Hadley made an earnest
plea that personalities be left out of
the debate, declaring the question was
so clearly one of principle that it
should not be involved by anything
Hadley was given the closest atten
tion throughout In closing he de
clared that when the vote on the sub
roll came, he would contend that on.

"All law, all precedents agree." he
said, "that 0 man should be a judge

Washington Taft Man Speaks.
Hadley was followed by W. T. DoTell.
of Washington, who argued in favor of
the Taft delegates, seated by the na
tional committee from Washington.
Mr. Dovell characterised as "reckless
ly false" the statement credited to
Col. Roosevelt that an effort had been
made to "steal" the Washington dele
gates. As one of the Taft delegates
from the state, he declared there was
no nrimary law in Washington.
"The declaration is utterly false."
he declared, "that the state of Wash

Dovell was interrupted with groans
from the Roosevelt forces when he said
"When it was discovered the night
