ROOSKVELT GIVEN BIG OVAT ION WHEN HE RKACHKfI CHI

JOHNSON MAY KIN FOB VICE PRESIDENT.
(By United Press leased Wire.)
CHICAGO, Aug. 5. —Five thou
sand jostling, cheering, enthus
iastic men and women greeted
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt as lie
stepped irom the Twentieth Cen
tury limited here at 8:55 a. m.
today to direct the proceedings of
the Bull Moose national conven
tion, which assembled in the Col
iseum at noon.
Literally fighting his way
through the jam of humanity,
Colonel Roosevelt and his party
were rushed to the Congress ho
tel. Another crowd awaited him
there. As the automobile ran up
and down the street a band struck
up, "Oh You Beautiful Doll."
Colonel Roosevelt flushed ana
grinned while the crowd took up
the refrain. This seemed to
amuse the colonel. Standing
bareheaded in the car, Roosevelt
addressed the crowd, saying in
"It is a pleasure to be in Chi
cago again, this time at the birth
of a new party instead of at the
death of an old one. By the 4th
of November the ticket nominat
ed here six weeks ago will no
longer be a factor in politics.
"Americans will not tolerate
fraud and theft. The day of the
boss, the crooked financier be
hind the boss, and the crooked
newspaper is past."
That Chicago suffragettes be
lieve Colonel Roosevelt Is then
friend and will work hard for the
■woman suffrage plank in his plat
form was indicated by the throngs
of women that greeted him on all
sides. They wore "Votes tor
Women" badges, and their de
light at seeing the man whom
they expect to lead their cause
to victory next November appar
ently, was genuine.
Just before the bull moose con
vention was called to order by
Senator Joseph M. Dixon of Mon
tana at noon today It seemed al
most certain that Governor Hiram
Johnson of California would t>e
the vice presidential nominee.
Although General Luke Wright
of Tennessee was being advocat
ed by Southerners for Colonel
Roosevelt's running mate, the ma
jority of the delegates favored
the California executive because
of his campaigning ability.
Johnson, It is believed if Roose
velt says the word, will fall in
Only a small crowd stood out
side the Coliseum when the con
vention hall doors were thrown
open. At one end of the hall
hung a magnificent specimen of a
bull moose, by which name Uie
new party Is frequently called.
At the other end was a huge pic
ture of Col. Roosevelt.
Before the delegates assembled
the New York delegation adopted
resolutions declaring that no per
son should be nominated for ex
ecutive or legislative office In New
York unless a regularly enrolled
progressive. An attempt to
amend tMs resolution by includ
ing the Judiciary was defeated by
a vote of 8 to 24.
Two hundred and thirty-two
women, ranging In age from 15
to 80 years, marched into the
hall from the Art Institute. They
carried yellow banners, reading,
"Votes for women." Sixteen
women wearing caps beaded the
body. The women were wildly
