to Be Dislodgrd From Control.
HAY CITY, Mich., April 11.
Fighting, shouting, and cursing, but
subdued by a .sipim! of police who
charged with drawn clubs, the Kooso
velt and Taft delegates to the Michi
gan state convention forced their way
into the armory here this afternoon
and then came a wild scramble for
seat. Clothes were torn and many a
bbji-k eye and braised face bore wit
ness to the botness of the fray.
The riot started when, after n dek-.y
of hours, tho doors of the armory
were thrown open and the sergeant
at arms sought to admit only those
holding credentials istutcd by the state
Hand to hand conflicts were num
erous among the delegates, with hon
ors among the Taft and Roosevelt
supporters about even. After the
convention was called to order W. I).
Gordon, a Roosevelt mnu, was thrown
bodily from the plntfonn when he
tried to seak.
Both sides charged strong arm tac
tics', and groans, hisses and catcalls
greeted the Taft men' attempt to
perfect organization. Pandemonium
reigned on the Roosevelt fide of the
armory, where a chairman, tellers and
committees were elected nnd all the
Roosevelt conlcsliug delegates were
seated. Taft and Roosevelt .speakci-s
attempted to talk at the same time
from different pnrta of the platform,
while nbont each spouter his adher
ents clustered, beating back by main
force those who tried to drown out
the orator of the opposing faction.

tho convention was duo to meet at
10 a. m., tho doors wero still closed
Fearing tho convention will end In
a riot because of tho bitterness exist
ing between tho two fuctlons, Gov
eruor Osborn ordered a detachment
of state militia to the armory build
ing to prevent disorder. At noon tho
delegates were lined up outside the
armory, with tho Roosevelt follow

Despite thu efforts of tho adherents
of President Taft. tho Uoosovelt
delegates refused to ho dislodged,
