: Mr La Follette Men Meet
with Republican Convention.
Vice-President Sherman and
Other Speakers Arraign In
surgency in the Party.
Milwaukee. June &.— Denunciation of the
Insurgents and commendation of the Re
publican national administration we« the
trviw! of a number of speeches at th« first
session of the Republican estate convention
to-day. Every mention of President Taft'a
name by the various speakers was followed
by a demonstration.
Vlce-Presid>nt James S. Sherman, who
came from Wa-hlneton to address the con
vention, dropped Into the bell during the
afternoon and was warmly welcomed. He
spoke at a session of the convention to
Th»' real woik of the convention, that of
formulating a platform, will not be reached
until to-morrow, as the matter of naming
candidates for a state ticket probably will

It seemed to sa the consensus of opinion
to-nlxbt that the platform will deal entire
ly with national issues, indorsing President
Taft anil criticising Republican office-hold
ers not in sympathy with his policies.
Executive Chairman Emanuel L,. Philipp,
in introducing temporary Chairman Michael
K. Dillon, of Ashland, extolled the national
administration and adversely criticised the
insurgents, and every speaker who fol
lowed spoke along the same lines and
7.lrad>d for harmony in the party.
Judge I>vl Tl. Bancroft, of Richland Cen
tre, formerly of the La Follette faction,
who was chosen as i>ermanent chairman,
bitterly arraigned the Insurgent move
ment in Congress and within the Republi
can party. He said it meant the disruption
<> party organization and the substitution
therefor of a one-man despotism.
G:ith**re<l in the convention was ft num
ber of former adherents of Senator La Fol
.ettr. notable among whom were ex-Gov
ernor William D. Hoard and William D.
Conner. The majority of the 1,055 delegates
from every part of the state, however, are
adherents of the stalwart wing of th*
There are five avowed candidates in the
ttsU for the Governorship nomination, ex
clusive of Governor Davidson, who has not
declared himself.
Th» features of Mr. Dillon's speech were
praise for the Republican party. and espe
cially the national administrations of
Roosevelt and Taft, and a rebuke to men
elected upon party tickets who uar their

party legislation to make political capital
for themselves.

Tstn rr<aHnSil James S. Sherman, accom
panied by ex -Congressman James K. Wat
saa, of Indiana, arrived In Milwaukee to
day an.l was met by a large reception com
mittee and escorted to the Hotel Pfeleter
for luncheon with a large number of prom
inent Republican leaders.
Mr. Sherman in his speech before the
convention, pleaded the cause of regular
Republicanism and urged the insurgents
to return to f he fold. From the time he
■ttsrei his salutation to the "P.adgerltes
-•• Republican persuasion" until the last
word was spoken he kept insurgency in
mind, now rebuking the breaking away
from party and then pleading for harmoni
ous and concerted action within the lines.
'•What is a. Republican?" was. the first
subject that Mr. Sherman dealt with after
be lia<l paid a warm tribute to President
'!■;■! t as the leader of his party. The
speaker recalled that Congressman Champ
Clark recently -aid the devil himself could
not answer that question.
"That question may stump the devil,
who may naturally be assumed to be a
Decocrat." said Mr. Sherman, "but 111
venture the assertion that every twelve
jrear-oU bay hi Wisconsin can answer it
and that the simple but comprehensive
reply would be: 'A man who votes the
Republican ticket at the polls and votes
for Republican measures in <'oiigr«-5.«." "
The \'i>--T'rt .-i.lont f.sked that if this was
the correct answer, If the converse was not
true- "that a man who does not vote the
Republican ticket, who does not support
Republican measures an.l Republican poli
> i,-- is Dot :« Republican?"
Mr Sherman sras received with lend ac
claim, lie said that when he received the
Invitation to come I" Milwaukee to »id
dre*s the Republican convention he was
arced by President Taft to accept It; that
i. ... President was interested In Wiscon
sin, and was anxious that the party In this
state become united.
in opening bis address, which in a gr*at
measure had u> do with 'insurgents,** the
\ p-President sai<l:
".Sonx- say we don't want leaders. We
want leaders: )• it we «lon*t want self-con-
Btltnted lea<!«-rs;."
Throughout the delivery of his address
Mr. Bhemtan was frequently interrupted

j Stamford Student Had Prettily Tufted
Head When Released.
! rr?y TeJegrapa to The Tribune.]
Stamford, Conn., June B.— A group of high
i school seniors Iddnapped Alfred Jackson,
I president ■•' the junior class, la.^t night,
ar;d clipped off portions of his ha!r clone
to the roots. When tney released hlaj Jack
son had a very prettily tufted head.
The point of the proceeding lay in tho
, fact thai Jackson tv-is to deliver an ad
dress this afternoon ■I r-las3 day exercises,
pile appeared at the appointed thru, and his
j address l:i behalf of the juniors to the
. senior *■ was one of the Interesting feature*
j of the prosramtne.

Representative Hull Defeated by
Dcs Monies, lowa. June S.— With only five,
counties missing: -to-night. Governor B. F.
Carroll, RepuWtcan. is nominated, lor re
election by- a majority or 706 rotes over
Warren C. Garst, progressive Republican.
The missing counties arc known as Carroll
Btrongholds. and probably will bring bis
majority up to 1,600 or 2,000. ' •
The surprise .of the election is the ma
jority rolled up by Judge Prouty, progres
sive, over Congressman Hull. Prouty car
ried every county- in the district, his unoffi
cial majority being 3.1 W. Two rears ago
Hull was nominated by 40 votes over
Prouty. President Taft early in the cam
paign spoke in this district In support of
the administration policies.
The defeat of Garst by so email a mar
gin is held to indicate to some degree the
general sentiment of the state on national
affair?, despite the fact that Governor Car
roll insisted that he was running on his
state record. Two years ago Carroll was
nominated over Garst by 22,000 votes.
Almost- complete returns to-night show
that 2d District Democrats, at first he
lieved to have chosen J. A. De Armand,
nominated I. S. Pepper.
Regular Republicans say that they will
control the next state convention, having a
bare majority of the 1,400 delegates chosen
yesterday. The platform, it 13 said, may
go so far as to condemn the course of Sena
tors Cummins and Dollirer.
Following are the Congressional candi
dates :
Ist District— C. A. Kennedy, "stand-pat."
3d District — Charles Grilk. progressive.

Chicago, June &— Senator A. B. Cummins,
of lowa, who was here to-day, sees a great
victory for the "Progressive" Republicans
In the lowa primaries yesterday. He de
clared that the defeat of Congressman .T.
A. T. Hull, "stAndpat" Republican candi
date in the 7th District, overshadowed all
the other issues in political significance.
"The principal fight of the "Progressives'
was waged upon Congressman Hull," said
Senator Cummins." "He has been In Con
gress for twenty years, and Is chairman of
the Military Committee and a leading ally
of Speaker Cannon. His retirement is a big
victory for us."

Windows in Nightclothes.
Xorwalk, Conn., June S.— The greater
portion of the main building of the Over
look Selleck Military Academy was de
stroyed by fire early to-day, compelling
the seventy-five students of the Institu
tion to seek shelter for the remainder of
th« night at the Norwalk Hotel.
The students were aroused from their
beds and many of them made their escape
clad only in their" nightclothlng. Trunks
and other belongings were thrown from
the windows and several of the students
were compelled to jump from the windows
on the second story, but all escaped injury.
The building, a wooden structure 200 feet
long by "■<> feet wide was erected twen
ty-five years ago by the Rev. Charles M.
Seflecfe who died two years ago. A large
number of the students are foreigners and
the number was recently increased by the
acquisition of twenty-five students from a
school In Stamford, which was closed.

San Francisco, June B.— The -recently or
ganized Chinese league of Justice sent ex-
Judge Carroll Cook to Washington to-night
to present their demand for reform of
Chinese immigration methods in San Fran
cisco. Judge Cook will first ask the Chinese

cal changes in the present procedure, which

emphatically to-night that he would not l>e

current in Western New York that Speaker

Assistant Mate's Attorney Nicholas
Ificbels, of Chicago, one of the executors of
the Steele estate, took chargo of Mrs.
Steeled affairs immediately following her
death. He file<T the will an.l also took
charge of th*> $26,000 in currency found in
Mrs. Steele's room. Mlchels stated that
Mrs-. SJfcele owned Chicago downtown prop
erty valued at J250.000.
According to Michel?, Accetta arrived ii
Chicago last Saturday on hi* way to St.
Paul. He called on Mrs. Steele at her ho
tel. Learning that she was 111, ho aban
doned his trip and sp*-nt much time with
Early last Sunday morning. Accetta was
walking with Phillipe Catalano. a Chicago
acquaintance, whoa Catalano was shot ana
instantly killed by an unidentified Italian.
Accetta was arrested ami held by the po
lice as a witness until after the inquest
into Catalano'3 murder. He sent word of
his predicament to Mrs. Steel**, and phy?i
eiani" nay that the shock of this news has
tened Mr.=. Steele'P death.
Accetta hastened to the hotel after he
was released by tho police and found Mrs.
Steeie in a semi-conscious condition. She
died later In his presence.
Mrs. Steele was born in Chlcapo, being
a daughter of the late Samuel Siirdam, a
wholesale hardware dealer. She was Ural
married here forty year? ago to Alexander
Steel*-, her father's business partner. "When
Steele died, fifteen years since, she went to
New York, where ten years ago she was
married to Dr. William Bradley. She was
divorced from Dr. Bradley two years later,
resuming the name of Steele. X"or several
years Mr*. Bteele made h«»r home at the
Wilbrahsm Apartment Hotel, Fifth ave
nue and 30th street.
Elmer K. Earl. Mrs. Steele's rousin, came
here from his home at East Troy. N. V.,
but whether before or after her death could
not be learned. Earl refused to sec any
one to-night.
Mr. XlchelS said that Mrs. Bteele had
come to Chicago to draw a new will. He
said, however, that he had delayed in tak
ing up the work with her because of pres
sure of work In the Lee O'Ncll Browns al
leged bribery trial.
Mr. Mlehels also sa.i.l that Mrs. SteHe
drew the $28,000 from a New York bank
just before her departure f (> r Chicago. He
also admitted that he. had heard Mrs.
Steelc'a relatives desired her to cut Ao
cetta'f* name from her will.
Asked if ho thought Mrs. Steel* had ob
tained the money to pay Accotta, and thus
close her obligation to him. Mr. Michel*
Kald he was undecided.
A police theory Is that Accetta may have
Mopped in Chicago to get the |S,«sl in cash
from Mrs. Steeie and that information re
garding th*» rumored settlement got abroad.
They think that as a result Catalan" was
murdered by a man who believed that Cat
alans and Accetta were then in possession
of the large sum which Mrs. Steele brought
with her from New York.

Witnesses Testify Coleman Said
Wealth Was Inherited.
Boston. June B.— A dozen witnesses In
behalf of William .7. Keliher, charred with
aiding In th« defalcation of W».000 from
the National City Bank of Cambridge, tes
tified to-day at th*« beginning of the defence
that George W. Coleman, the confessed dis
honest bookkeeper. , accounted for his
wealth by stating that he Inherited M from
an aunt. Tfeoas statement* were intro
duced to support the assertion of the, de
fenc3 that Keliher believed Coleman was
using hi!" own money in his fi^alings with
the defendant.
Another feature of the day was th* tes
timony of K. I* Karl, cashier of the ruined
bank, that while aware of a great decrease
in the bank's deposit! last fall, he made
no effort to find out ho«" or where the
money went.
"We never suspected that there wa« any
irregularity Inside of the Institution," he*
said. "Although we' knew that the de
posits were dropping off, we thought that
they were going to some other bank."
Earl said that he did not know of the
bank's failure until the morning of the day
It was closed. He admitted that he knew
four month* before that, the deposits of
the bank were falling off and that Presi
dent Dresser was putting- In money to
keep them tip. He said that In sixteen
days last December, $32, was abstracted
from the account of President I>re.- by
Walter K. Knight, of Koston. said that
he met Coleman last March, after the
arrest, and that •''oilman said that the
stories about Keliher were all "paper
talk." but that the "cans over hi lion]
York ought to go to Jail."
Coleman was again a witness and -p-lth
the aid of th* bank's books explained
Just bow be abs»tra<:te<l thousands of dol
lars without rnMns: detected. Most of It
was done by wrong footings, destruction of
his own checks and erasure?.
The first part of th*> court session was
occupied by Harvey H. Pratt, of counsel
for Keliher, who closed his opening argu
ment. He said that the defence would
show that there was a real John R. Mar
shall who hired a room in State street and
who sent money to Col^nian at Kansas
City. Mr. Pratt ,-akl that the defence
would al.^o show that i olcman went to
Keßher's house voluntarily and asked for
JtOT'.Offl that he misht give it to Miss Mamie
Hiarhtower, nf Kansas City, and other
