He charged first that 'the attempt to organise the credentials committee or the Indiana state ooa vention on thq night before the con vention had been Illegal. Colonel Colby said this committee adopted a rule which gave its five Taft members the opportunity to choose members from the Third, Sixth and Thirteenth districts so as to give them control. He declared the Roosevelt men so Jeoted for the committee from the Third and Sixth districta had been unseated by the Tatt forces on the -- n oi t.he si k tt ar1ºt >d.R iven 't 'the ombe.t in o th h at o the eoa* v airivedat th bet .aa1 Mabd& d Pote at orlh~htrof the eom r Mooreo denem d there had beat .ye frarid In the nadfanpomis pim .mrts ee ne stt from pubtle men lad c-l ty that be prim. .es hid pewpltpl e ooFnaeted.

'Mr. Moores said the Taft fornes were in the minority.unless some of their eoptested delegates wee allowed to vote on 'the contests. AIr. Moores presented an amfidavit by Will R. Wood of Iafayette to prove that the Roosevelt delegates headed by ex-enditor Beverldlge had teen nominated at a "rump" state convention held "without order" In the back of the hall. James A. Hemenwa., former United States seaster, took up the Taft del egatet arguments. He said all the delegates in Indianapolis were se. looted directly by wards. A county committee on credentials decided contests in the city, Mr. Hemenway said, and the Roosevelt leader. Linton A. Cox, recognised its authority by appearnlg before it to present evidence. In the Ninth ward, where the vote was Taft, 161: Roosevelt, 1i8, he said, three men swore that more than 168 men with Roosevelt badges had gone into the pops but the entire election board testified that its count was coro rect. Mr. Remenway declared that the 198 contests carried to the state con vention from Marion county (in which Indianapolis Is situated) were taken in by wards. In the case of the 15 wards of Indianapolis. each case was represented spperately, the elimination of arly colftested delegation therefore not affecting the Taft control of the .onvention. Mr. Mtemenway contended that the only real issue was whether the In lanapolls delegates had been legally elected. "If they were." he said, "Taft had rnly 106 majority." Mr. Kellogg asked Mr. Stillwell of the Roosevelt forces, whether he ad litted that the contests In Indianap lits had been given a proper hearing eafore the county credentials commit tee." "No sir," he said, 'bur people did not appear." The committee debated the question )f admitting affidavtts by 'Roosevelt men in Indianapolis bearing on 8a eeld primary frauds. The Taft attorneys and several nembers of the committee raised the ibjection that the affidavits had not ben filed within the proper time. The raft attorneys alleged that they never had had a chance to see them. Senator Borah was permitted to read from the affidavits after com nitteelnan Chubb of Florida had ob. served that "all the southern contests have become highly respectable be side this one from a northern state." Senator Borah read a statement, not in affidavit, attributed to Mayor shank. stating that city employes were discharged or threatened with Ileoharge for taking part in the Roos. velt campaign. Senator Hemenway md others denied the statements. Mr. Iemedway said be understood Mayor Shank had 'deled makinl such a statement. Other statements and affidavits were read by Borah to the effect that the Pourth ward voting plas hbad been inconveniently loeated "for the traudulent purpose of preventing vot err from voting." In this ward also, one statement was that voters were not admitted to the voting room, but had to put their ballots through a hole in tbe wall. This, it was allege4, was to make .it possibli for non-resldents of the ward to vote and impossible for voters to see where their ballots went. There was a bus of conference among committee members as the o ntestnts retired from the room. A motion to seat the Taft deleottes was made by bommittoeman Uelber of the District of Columbia. Mr. Borah and Mes Kelslogg voted to eat the Taft delegates as did all other Reogevelt committee members. Colonel Now, one, of the dtfendut delegates at large, being an in'lte p.ty, refralned, from voting. Th~r was a 6Oil call ald the vote resulted s to 0. P.

"You can go out," said he, "and get any number of affidavits with a hand ful of five-dollar bills." When the Dorah motion to admit the new evidence n.as finally put to the committee, it was defeated, 30 to 20. Chairman Victor Rfosewater, of Nebraska, and Alvah H. Martin, Vir ginias, both voted to admit the evl dence, hut declared that they by no means conceded that it would be con clusive. The vote In part foHllws: Knight of California (proxy held by Kellogg); Dupont of Delaware; Borah of Idaho; Littauer (for lanigaan.

Montana; Luna of New Mexico; Williams of Oregon; anders (proxy of Perkins of Wash Ington); Pexton of Wyoming; McCoy of the Philippines. For the first time during the Thir teenth district eontroversy the Taft attorneys then took up the presenta tion of the case. A. G. Graham of South Bend, chair man of the district convention, said the selection of all committees was regu lar. Mr. Graham said' Roosevelt men were In the hall and that he "called for 15 minutes witha megaphone" for other nominations, but none was of fered. He then put the names of Mr. Studebaker and Mr. Fox for delegates to a vote and there was "a volume of Yeas and nays." Committeeman New, as Mr. Graham finished, said he would have no objec tion of admitting the debated affi davits. "Now we have established the prece dent against extending these hearings," he sald. "I have no objectionh to hearing these affidavits offered." BSenator Borah was on his feet in an Instant. "Why this sudden changt of front?" he demanded. "rs this committee tiy ing to reverse itself every 80 mln utes?" "This is simply' "a luestt mfor anal mous consent, now that we have de olded It shall not he ' retedent," l Mr. New.

Twelve young ladies found their places designated by cleverly chosen verses characteristic of each at a table daintily appointed for luncheon with decorations all in red.

Laymonde was the recipient of birthday honors, which took the form of a surprise ar ranged by some of her friends and neighbors. Mrs Laymonde was lured from her home at 1811 Howell street, by the promise of a special treat down town, and when she returned she found the ladies in possession. They had decorated the house brightly with flowers and had tables set ready for a game of cards. Prise winners in this game were Mrs. Leslie, Mrs. Rossenberg and Mrs. Grinnell. De licious refreshments were served as part of the celebration. The most In teresting feature of the afternoon for both guests and hostess was when lit tie two-year-old Harold Koonts took Mrs. Laymonde by the hand and led her tes table upon which was placed p decorated basket filled with dainty and useful pieces of chinaware, her birthday gift from the ladles. The gift was heartily appreelated, although the hostess was too much overcome to make a very long speech. Those who had part In the pleasant affair were Mesdames 'oonts, Forsythe, Drury, ., L.
