Chicago. Aug. 7.?Thcodore Roosevelt, ex-Prcsident of the!
United States. was named for a third term as President by the Pro-1

Hiram Tohnson. Governor of California. was named for Vice
Both nominations were made by acciamation, there being no
other candidates in the field.
All was harmony in the convention to-day?except as to thr
umrr.portant question of taking a recess. Colonel Roosevelt's "con-1
I -n of faith"' so completely foreshadowed the platform and the
nominating speeches as to leave little of novel or vital interest in the
convention. It was an anti-climax, looking at the convention from a
Both Colonel Roosevelt and Governor Johnson made brief
speeches of acceptance as soon as their nominations were effected.

not be performed.

of long-haired doctrinaires and coliege professors." the party pro- ;
nouncement contained some fiheen thousand words. As pruned.
first by the committee and then by the candidate. it was reduced to

CIVILIAN LIKELY TO BE THIRD
Extortion the Charge?"Bridgie" Will Say He Waf
Collector Like Rose?"Billiard Ball Jack" Declares
"Sam" Schepps Was at Becker's House
a Few Hours After Murder.
From evidence that reached the District Attorney's ofnee yes?
terday. together with indications that more would follow from the
same and other sources, the indictment of two police inspectors and
a civilian for extortion was predicted as a development of the grand
jury investigation of the Rosenthal charges and murder.
?'Bridgie" Weber sent word to the District Attorney yesterday
that he was prepared to corroborate the story of graft told by "Jack"
Rose. that he would tell the whole truth. including a detailed story
of his relations with one of the police inspectors involved.
Weber s relations with that inspector were the same that Rose
says he bore to Becker?that is. according to Weber's own story.
v-hich is corrobcrated by others. he was the inspector's collector.
Weber is determined to stand with Rose in making a clean breast
of his police-gamb'ing connections, in spite of the midnight attempt
to intimidate him in the West Side Court prison early Monday
?Sam" Schepps. the man who handed the getaway money from
Weber to two of the gunmen. and who was with Rose when John
W. Hart called upon him in Harry Pollok's house, was with Becker
in Becker's house the Tuesday morning of the murder. wlthin a few
hours after the time Rosenthal was killed, according to Rose's state
Evidence collected by the Burns detectives before the Rosenthi'i
murder. as reported exclusively in The Tribune ten days ago, will
support the story told by Rose of Becker's relations with gamblers.
md a\<o the story that will be told by Weber involving one police
inspector. In addition. the evid#nce of the Burns men will implicate
another police inspector and a civilian.
WHITMAN PROTECTS WITNESSE8.
Other and new witnesscs who have told their stories to District?
Attorney Whitman have been safeguarded by that official by keep
:ng their names sccret, because they fear police intimidation. Some
of these are citizens who witnessed the actual murder of Rosenthal.
and others are men who will corroborate different portions of the
graft accusations against Becker and the three others involved.
Two servants of "Jack" Rose. who witnessed the actual passing
over of graft coilection money from Rose to Becker, and who heard
the conversation which accompanied the transfer. will tell then
stories t<j the grand jury to-day.
Every telephone communication between Rose and Becker, in?
cluding the calls exchanged between them directly after the murder.
from the Lafayette baths. and from. or to. Pollok's house. as related
by Rose. has been corrobcrated and clinched by evidence turned
over to Mr. Whitman yesterday by the Burns people.
It 1* expected that the grand jury will indict to-day the four
gunmen whose names have been most prominently mentioned. Two
of them are still at large.
Four new witnesses. whose names Mr. Whitman will not reveal.
have identitied "Jack" Sullivan, who is now under arrest charged
with the murder. as one of those who rode away from the Metropoie
in the gtay automobile.
Rose sent a letter to Mr. Whitman yesterday by the hand of
his brother, Moe, in which he gave addittonal names and addressc
of places from which he said he had collected for Becker.
"DIABOLICAL PLOT." SAVS LAWYER.
John F. Mclntyre, now Becker's chief counsel. declared that his
' client was the victim of "a diabolical plot," and that the testimor.y
against him was "perjury of the blackest kind." He predicted the
acquittal of Becker.
Alderman Henry H. Curran said no one would be allowed *o
dictate the appomtment of counsel to the aldermanic committee.
He spoke with reference to a report that certain infiuences would
attempt to force the selection of a lawyer who would be put ia %m
protect men higher up than Becker.
Rabbi Schulman said that the proposed Cooper Union maag
meeting was absolutely necessavy to voice the indignation of thfj
"Sam" Paul. who was arrested and then discharged in the Ro?
senthal case. was subpoenaed as a grand jury witness yesterday,
and wiil probably be called on to testify to-day. Harry Poliok ar.d
his wife will be among other witnesses to-day.
