When the replubi n national commit tee niet Ip Wsilton In December, 1911, ft It.val1tded. any electibn of delegaes that hnl Jten place prior to its mehting. ttate Chairman Long called another conveition in Tirminghaut, March 7, 1913, and t)e delegates at large were re-elected in conformity with the national committee's oticilai call. "Later, Senator Dick claimed, Mr. Thompson, the former chalrman, Insued a call for a separate convention at which the contesting delegates at large were chosen, "After Colonel 'Roosevelt announced his cqtidldacy for 'the presidency," he said, "MW'. 'Tompson repudiated the written agreement he had entered Into a year ago, pretended that the entire proceeding of the convention held In August, 1911, were Illegal and void, and pretended to call together the old state committee of wh:oh he has been chairman. Three members of the old committee out of a total of 41 respond ed to his call. "The Taft delegates at large were elected by a state convention duly called by the new state committee of 'which Pope M. Long is chairman. There can be no question about the legality of their election." In the five congressional district cases, the Taft attorneys declared, the organ:sation establlihed ty the repub lican convention In Alabama had been ignored and that a separate convention to elect Roosevelt delegates had been called by J. O. Thompson and N. L. Steele, "who occupy no official relation either to the state or congressional committees." In the Second district, it was claimed, the regular organization was ignored and the Taft forces further charged that the Roosevelt convention had been held outside the boundaries of the Becond congressional district without the issuing of notices or the holding of county conventions. In the Fifth and Ninth districts, the Taft adherents charged the Roosevelt forces with working through "rump" or bolting committees and in the Sixth district It was claimed eight men had selected the district delegates at Bir mingham. The two Alabama delegations ap peared before the committee as the Long and Thompson delegations, taking the names of the rival republican state chairmen. "There. Is no contestant or contestee before this committee," said Secretary Hayward of the 'committee. "Both delegations are treated on the face of their credentials as regular and the order In which these arguments shall precede is based on the date of filing the credentIals." Regularity Claimed. The Roosevelt attorneys, led by Mr. McHarg and Mr. Hundley, claimed reg ularity for their delegates. They as serted that J. O. Thompson and his delegates had been recognised by the republican national convention of 1908 as the regular or "Thompson faction." Mr. Hundley charged that the "Lons" or 'Taft delegates had been chosen at the o0nvention of August, 1911, which was Illegal,- he said, so far as the se lection of national delegates was con cerned. State Chairman Thompson, he said, had been elected in 1900 for four yh, had called a state convention for May 7 Pbuir to nu4vr a emt duuqtioauil rvioe to its r sdera, T. Niu ba 1 ýrrrre ns1 witb MIr.

B.t.t charged that Mr. 'hbti.nipon had, maned a written agree meIndt to Ide by the action of the iciv IVntlon of August I1, 1911. The Long committee chosen by the convention was recognised by all fac tions, he said. Wheh tW. republican national cotn mlttee 'invalldated the selee.1on of na tional delegates made by the August convent bn, Chairman Long, on Jan uatvy , 1911, called another state con vention to be held March 7, 191i, at which the Long delegates were re elected. Mtr. Street characterised as a "fine technicality" the claim of the Thomp son faction, that all acts of the Au gust 81 convention were Invalid be. cause the republican flational commit tee refused to recognise delegates elected earlier than January 1,. 191. He characterised it as "a "proposition so absurd as to scarcely require an swer." Upon the close of the arguments, the contest came quickly to a vote and it was evidently unanimous. Senator Borah's demnand for a roll call was not opposed and it showed the same result, 53 to 0. Argument Abandoned. Taking up the first Alabama district contest, Ormsby McHarg, attorney for the Roosevelt forces, announced he would waive the time allowed for argu ment. This contest was also won by the Taft forces, again by a unanimotas vote. Representative Bartholdt of Missouri, holding the proxy of Charles Negal, moved that the Taft delegates be seated. Senator Borah again demanded a roll call. Several member~ of the com mittee called out "no," 'but Senator Penrose, General IClayton of Arkansas, and many other Taft men on the com mittee supported Mr. Borah, and made up the necessary 20.to order a roll call. The Taft men won 'the Alabama. Sec ond, Filfth and Sixth district delegations In rapid succession. In the FIfth the contest was decided in favor of the Taft men without a roll call. In the Sixth the Roosevelt con testing delegates did not appear. Committeeman Parker moved this contest be considered as withdrawn and the Taft men placed on the roll call. This carried without opposition. The committee agreed without debate to placing on the temporary roll of the committee the uncontested delegates from the Third, Fburth, Seventh and Eighth Alabama districts. The contest In the Ninth district was then called. Judge Hundley, one of the Roosevelt delegates from the Ninth district, .declared the Taft delegates were elected in this by a bolting con vention. "This was a bolt pure and s.mple," said Mr. Hundley. "They said to me: 'We are going to leave you,' and walked out of thq hall." Mr. Hundley presented what he said was a stenographip report of the Ninth district convention to show that the Long or Taft forces walked out of the hall. The Taft delegates from the Ninth district were represented by A. C. Burch of Alabama. He charged that men not legally members of the dis trict committee had participated in its meeting February 16, 1912: that the legal committee at that time, owing to the resignations and absences, numbered 27 and that 15 men particl pated in the Taft convention. Judge Hundley declared vacancies on the regular committee had been filled by appointment: but Mr. Burch de elated, the appointmept of new meni berg, by which' the Roosevelt pboplh .1I h ornttalts, ivolvi th. *i ata, four dei S.called, a.' ttrona o ,n .. sli-.

"Two democratic colstaables were statlohed Inilid tho' doors with ordlb to prevent any Roosevelt delelates from getting in. At least one of bur mean wad strulct In the head and In Iutted by one of these constables." Mr. Remmell, tak:ng up the defense tfo the Taift delertes, said that a pro tiethig deledftloid, mdoh like that be-. fore the national committee, had gine to Walhlnntoil 'bveral years aeo and protested to President Roosevelt against republican eandiddtee in the state. "He told them to go back to Arkansas and nominate a ticket anta if they Won he would recognise them as the repub lican party in the state." He sa'd the faction was defeated four to one In .the electlod. "I saw President Roosevelt later," sdid Mr. Remmell, "and asked him who constituted the republican party in Arkansas. "'You do,' he said." Mr. Rommeli declared the selection of state and district delegates had been entirely regular and proper, Funny Peare. Chicago, June 7.-Colonel William FP. Stone, sargeant-at.arms of the it. publican nationdl committee, applied tonight to Mayoi Harrison for police protection at the sessions of the com ntittee tomorrow, which is conducting contest hearings at the Coliseum. Colonel Stone's action, he said, was prompted by reports that certain Rdosevelt leaders had prepared to In timidate the membership of tlb com mittee in Its deliberations. Other members of the committee, including Harry 8. New of Indiana, Senator Crane of Massachusetts and Senator Newell Sanders of Tennessee, said they had heard reports of a planned Roosevelt demonstration at the com mittee room at the hearings. "There will be no 'rough house' In the committee," said Colonel 8tone. "Neither will there be a demonstra tfon on the outside of the commit tee room. Drkistlc measures will be adopted if anything of the kind is attempted. I have asked the Chlcago city authorities for police protection at the committee hearings." Colonel New said he had reports of possible pending trouble, but was loath to believe them. "Such a report as this," said Col onel New, "seems incredible. Certain ly no one is foolish enough to lie lieve anything can be gained for a cause by the adoption of such meth ods. And surely no one who knows the members of the national commit ted believes it is going to be bluffed or terrorized by any mob or set of thugs that can be mustered. "Mind you, I do not believe anything of the sort will be attempted, as surely, someone in the crowd has In telligence enough to head off any thing of the sort it any misguided In dividual should attempt it. However, depend upon It, that if anything of this kind is attempted the individuals behind It will live to repent of their folly." United States Senator Dixon of Montana, Colonel Roosevelt's cam paign manager, declined to discuss these reports. He said he might have some comment to make later. !ongressman William H. Mcinley, director of the Taft bureau, specif d William Fllnn of Pittsburgh as the Roosevelt leader, he had been in formed who was expected to start the trouble. Mr. McKinley also said he had received reliable Information that George W. Perkins had been called to Chicago 'by certain Roosevelt mem bers of the national committee to head off any disturbance. Senato' jlinn was expected to reach Chleago tonight. Senator Dixon said if he could procure a proxy In the na tional committee he would give It to "llnn. Congressman McKinley's statement rerarding reported threatened trouble follows: "Reliable Information has been re epived Indicating that the sole ptFr. pose of the coming of William Pilnn of Pittsburgh to Chicago, at the In stance of Theodore Roosevelt. Is to take steps to intimidate the repub Ilean national committee it possible Ip its deliberations on the contest of delegates' seats In the convention. It is understood the plan which Mr. Pllnn Ii to follow is to organise crpwds of Ttoqsevelt followers who shall make demonstrations at the 0Coliseum for the purpose of attempt ing to overawe the national commit tee. "Roosevelt members of that body deprecated the plan, and it is salt, ap.d appealed to George 'W. Perklps of New York, one of Mr. Roosevelt's most intimafe friends,, to put an end 4o' It." Mr, Perkins hsa made no comment on this report up to tonight.
