Chicago, Aug. 5. The provisional
rational committee of the progressive
party mr-t today to dispose of con
tested delegates cases. Two cases in
volved the troublesome negro ques

men are anxious to place the matter
briefly before Roosevelt prior to a
vote. In the Florida cases a sort ol
compromise was reached. The so
called "lily-w hite" delegates headed by
Provisional National Committeeman
Andereon were seated as the regularly
chosen representatives of the state.
"M iTi.Ki:vr . im-.i.kte."
The contesting delegates, headed by
C. II. Alston, a negro, were invited to
sit In the convention as supplemental
delegates, "but without a vote." Fol
lowing disposition of this case the
committee took up Mississippi con
tests, also by negroes.
Alston and the other contesting ne
groes in Florida, five in all, declared
that under no circumstances would
they abide by the "compromise" de
cision of the committee.
Plti;KKlt TO HI V TICKETS.
"If we are to attend the convention
merely as spectators," said Alston,
"we prefer to buy our own tickets."
The negroes, when they heard the de
cision, stripped Roosevelt badges
from their coat lapels and held an in
