EFFORT TO CLAIM REGULARITY No Name Selected by "Progressives" and Attempt Will Be Made to Take Over Republican Electors and Organizations in Several States Beginning with Illinois?Great Crowd Watcher Proceedings. [By a Stqff Correspon Hent of The Tribune.] Chicago. June 22.?Theodore Roosevelt, in a speech in Orchestra Hall to? night, started a movement for the formation of a new national party As many ! of the Roosevelt delegates and alternates as could be got together adopted resolutions previously prepared under the direction of Mr. Roosevelt and in ; which they said: "We hereby nominate Theodore Roosevelt as the candidate of | our party for the office of President of the United States." In reply the colonel said there were those who asked him and his friends to 6tay in the party "which has just fraudulently nominated for the Presidency a man who inspired and profited by the fraud." He declared that the con? vention had provided a mean?; for a "fraudulently elected" national committee which four years from now might again overthrow the will of the voters at the primaries. The colonel said that while he recognized ir. those who addressed the reso? lutions to him the "lawfully elected delegates to the Republican convention," he accepted their nomination on only one condition: "I feel that the time has come when not only men who believe in pro? gressive principles but all men who believe in those elementary maxims of [ public and private morality which must underlie every form of successful free government should join in one movement. I therefore ask you to go to your several homes to find out the sentiment of the people at home and then again come together. I surest by macs convention, to nominate for the Presidency a Progressive candidate on a Progressive platform." It is planned to take advantage of any friction which may be generated among the Democrats at Baltimore to swing into the new Progressive move? ment members of that party Representatives of the colonel have already itarted for Baltimore to make ove-tures to the Progressives there. It was sug? gested to-day that the name cf ?He new party be the National Progressive party. Ormsby McHarg, who framed up the Southern contests, has enlisted in the new pa'ty. "It is not true that I have had a break with the colonel." he declared. "I law him to-day and offered my services. If the Democrats turn Mr. Bryan down in Baltimore we will have the chante of a century to unite with the Pro? gressive Democrats in the formation of a real people's party. I would suggest the name of the Liberal party." Representative George C. Curry, of New Mexico, is one of the scouts sent to the Baltimore convention to see what can be dene toward splitting some of the Progressives away from the Democratic party. He is a former Rough Rider and an old friend of Colonel Roosevelt, by whom he was appointed Territorial Governor of New Mexico. He is now a Representative from that state, but de- ' dares that he will resign his seat, as he was elected as a Republican, and will work for the colonel's fwrty. PRENDERGAST DOES NOMINATING. The speech nominating Colonel Roosevelt was made by Controller William A. Prendergast. of New York, who was to have presented the colonel's name to the regular Republican convention. Dean William Draper Lev/is, of the University of Pennsylvania Law School, who was to make one of the seconding speeches, delivered to-night's address j which he had prepared for the Republican convention. Representatives of twenty-two state* composed the notification committee, which informed Colonel Roosevelt of hi? nomination, and in a sens? stood as sponsors for the movement. The committee consisted of Controller Prendergast, of New York; Meyer Lisner, of California; ex-Representative Richmond Pear ?On, of North Carolina; Frank Knox, of Michigan; Matthew Hale, of Massa? chusetts; A. R. Garford. Ohio; David Browning, Kentucky; Everard Bierer, jr., Utah; Walter Thompson, Vermont; Judge Oscar R. Hundley, Alabama; Judge Ben B. Lindsey, Colorado; Andrew Rahn, Minnesota; Judge Stevens, Iowa; Judge Lowder, North Dakota; William Alien White, Kansas; John C. Green way, Arizona; ex-Governor John Franklin Fort, New Jersey; Colonel E. C. Carrington, Maryland; Pearl Wight, Louisiana; Lorenzo Dow, Washington; Walter Clyde Jones, Illinois, and Frank Frantz, Oklahoma. About one hundred and fifty regular delegates and many cast out dele? gates attended the meeting. The meeting, late in starting, was delayed by the regular delegates to the convention at the Coliseum, who remained until their states had been called on the Presidential nomination. All the delegates instructed for Roosevelt wished to record their refusal to vote in the Taft convention. Governor Hiram Johnson of California, who presided at the "rump" con? vention, arrived early with Gifford Pinchot, former chief forester; Amos Pinchot and Governor Robert P. Bass, of New Hampshire. Among Roosevelt champions to arrive early were E. C. Carrington, of Baltimore, leader in the Maryland Roosevelt campaign; Robert C. Novario, of Cleveland, Ohio, who painted the portrait of Roosevelt which was suspended in the rear of the stage; Frank Knox, of Michigan, secretary of the state com rnittee; Harry A. March and D. C. Henderson, of Ohio; William Flinn, of Pittsburg, recently resigned from the Republican National Committee; Francia J? Heney, of California; Alexander P. Moore, of Pennsylvania; James R. Gar field, of Ohio, and Senator Dixon, of Montana, Mr. Roosevelt's manager in the pre-convention campaign. CALIFORNIA FIRST TO ARRIVE. Wild enthusiasm broke out when the California delegation, fresh from the convention, marched into the hall. They bore their banner before them, and the cheers that greeted their appearance drowned out the music of the big pipe organ. Governor Johnson escorted the California delegates to the stage. Another round of cheers was given when Representative George Norris, of Nebraska, one of the "insurgent" Republicans in the House, ascended to the Platform and took his place beside James Wickersham, delegate to Congress from Alaska. Just before Governor Johnson called the meeting to order the crowd Hag patriotic songs and imitated a steam roller. When news of the nomination of President Taft reached the hall, all the Roosevelt leaders seemed pleased. The information that Vice-President Sherman had been renominated appeared to add to their delight. Governor Johnson and Gifford Pinchot shook hands and both turned to Frank A. Munsey, who had just arrived with the news, and P*tted him on the back. Th? delegates from the Coliseum convention arrived in a body and marched ( onilnucd on third pamrn, fourth column.

Tribun?. 1 Chicago, June 22.?William Howard Taft was renominated fof President of the United States to-night by practically a two-thirds vote of the national convention, his total vote being 561, and James School craft Sherman was renominated for Vice-President by a vote of 597 immediately thereafter. Ex-President Roosevelt received 107 votes; Senator La FoUctte, 41 ; Senator Cummins, 17, and Justice Hughes, 2. This has been the big day in the national convention. All the con tests before the committee on credentials and the reports of that com? mittee had been adopted by varying, but always safe, majorities. A broad, progressive and sane platform was reported by ex-Vice Presidcnt Fai; banks for the committee on resolutions, and was adopted by a vote of 666 to 396, with sixteen absentees. Of those opposed to the platform, and indeed to everything else which would promote the nomi? nation of Mr. Taft. 343, obeying the mandate of Colonel Roosevelt, sol? emnly announced when their names were called that they were "present, but not voting." This was as near to administering the "silence" pro? posed by James R. Garfield and Gifford Pinchot as the Roosevelt people came. The delegates who refused to vote because Colonel Roosevelt had asked them not to constituted majorities in ten states, as follows: Cali? fornia. Kansas, Maine. Minnesota, Nebraska. New Jersey, Ohio, Penn? sylvania. South Dakota ird West Virginia. ALLEN SINGS COLONEL'S SWAN SONG. Henry J. Allen, of Kansas, was chosen to sing to the convention Colonel Roosevelt's swan song. He did it well, and strongly indorsed the colonel's plea to his supporters not to vote on any motion which migh' thereafter be put. Colonel Roosevelt's denunciation of the convention and his im? ps sinned pica for support stiffened up several delegations. New York voted 85 for the platform to 5 against it Illinois, which had voted as strongly against the President at 31 to 7, swung around and voted 46 for the Taft platform to 9 against, with three absent. Idaho came over in a body, and so did Missouri. Gains were made in several states, and the Taft total?666?made it so obvious that the President was in full control of the convention and constantly gaining that the Roosevelt people became more ugly than ever Colonel Bryan, who threw up nil job as a reporter and left for the Democratic convention in Baltimore this afternoon, admitted he believed the success or failure of the Roosevelt third party movement depended wholly on the wisdom with which the Democrats chose their Presiden? tial candidate. Mr. Brvan would not indicate what course he regarded as the wisest foi the Democrats to pursue, but he intimated that the nomination of a conservative would surely pave the way for the success of the proposed New Nationalist party. He was cheered by a large section of the galleries and by most of the Roosevelt delegates as he left the Coliseum. Theodore Roosevelt, who cannot bring himself to a realization of the fact that the "overwhelming demand" for his nomination is a myth, utilized his last opportunity in the convention when he asked Allen. |f Kansas, to read his denunciation of the convention because it had f-iilcd to nominate him. MANY WOUNDS ARE LEFT. '~V A> a result of the reiteration of Colonel Roosevelt's cries of "fraile!" and "thieves," no Republican convention ever adjourned leaving so many sores and with so little prospect that the wounds would be healed. But his determination to start a third party which he can dominate and which can be made first to serve his ambition may send thousands of Republicans back into the Taft camp. For the present it is difficult to make any predictions based on the action of this convention. One thing is certain, however, as well as interesting. George W. Perkins assured Colonel Roosevelt to-day that he would finance the third party scheme and would continue to do so as long as it seemed to him that he could thereby promote the defeat of President Taft. And Amos Pinchot said that he and his brother could be counted on to contribute their share. The Roosevelt policy is to organize committees in every county jn every Republican state and to arouse the resentment of the people and to excite a sympathy for himself which he realizes cannot by any possi? bility effect his election, but which will, he believes, prevent President Taft from being elected. Had Mr. Roosevelt had care for the Progressive movement he could easily have accomplished the nomination of Governor Hadley of Mis? souri for Vice-President to-day. Bui even when this was proposed to him he would have nothing of it. G. G. H. LIVELY SCENES MARK FINAL DAY'S SESSION [By s ?-?uff C*orreep mdasl 'f Tha Tribun?) Chicago, June 22.
