the first real test of strength be
tween their candidate and President
Taft will commence Thursday, when
R. B. Howell of Omaha, national re
publican committeeman-elect from
Nebraska, will demand to be seated
as the- successor of Victor Rose
water, acting chairman of the na
tional republican committee, prior to
the hearing of contests by that body.
The Roosevelt managers are pre
pared to make a determined fight to
have Mr. Howell seated, and if they
succeed they will demand that Bor
den D. Whiting of New Jersey,
Thomas K. Niedringhaus of Missouri
and other national committeemen
elect, chosen either by direct pri
mary or state convention, be
seated. By this means, they may
succeed in controlling the national
committee and deciding whether
Senator Elihu Root of New York
shall bo recommended as temporary
chairman of the convention.
Harry S. New, chairman of the
sub-committee on arrangements for
the convention; declined to discuss
the plans of the Roosevelt leaders,
but intimated that he believed the
national committee would not seat
Mr. Howell or any other of the na
tional committeemen-elect until
after the adjournment of the con
vention. He also expressed the
opinion that the national committee
would approve the selection of Sena
tor Root as temporary chairman and
indorse the plan adopted for the
distribution of convention tickets.
