He'erring to the charge that Roosevelt had suppressed letters, Mr. Bonaparte charges that Taft did the same thing when the Ballinger-Pinchot contro versy was under way and a young stenog rapher divulged the information that Oscar Iiwlor had written the President his decision on the Glavis charges. Continuing, Mr. Bonaparte writes: In tlieite caes of "Suppression," the President's friends, the writer being then, nna nf them, were reulv at the time' to he- Ileve that no far as he was pernonslly con-, rerned there was no purpose to deceive tho investigating committee or the public, and indeed nothing more than errors of judg ment, probably Induced by bad advice.

Tho threat of a split in the committee came when John T. McCiraw, national committeeman from West Virginia, pro posed that the committee select United Senator James A O'Gorman of New York, who has been elected a delegate at large from that State, to be temporary chair man or tho convention, with.Urey Wood son of Kentucky, secretary or the national committee, as secretary oro tern, and Col. John I. Martin of Missouri, sergeant at arms of the national committee, astern- norarv serceant at arms. McCiraw is an outspoken advocate of Gov. Woodrow Vi ilson of New Jersey for the Demoeratio nomination lor President, and Senator O'Gorman is said to bo in clined the same way. Chairman Mack took advantage of the awkward pause which followed McGraw's iccHon Q( temporary officers be taken Ql tnls tm(, for fear , publio might assume that the national committee was seeking to organize a convention In the interest of some particular candidate for the nomination His appeal was effective und the com- mittee steered clear of the shoals. The most Important action taken by the motion 10 urge mai no action towarci ine ...... recommends to the national convention the abroeation of the rule which requires candidates for President and Vice-President to have a majority of two-thirds in the convention before they are declared the nominees of the parly. This now ruin is not meant to apply to this, but succeeding conventions. During the day the committee was waited on by a delegation of negro Demo cratic workers rrom Washington headed by Bishop Alexander Waters president or tho New Kra Publishing Company, which publishes a maguzinn the object of which is to wean the negroes from the Kepublicnn party, The clergyman-editor and the two other menders of his delega tion had a few minutes before the com mittee in executive session. The delega tion assured the committee of its con tinued support, left about fifty copies of the magazine with the committeemen and retired with a request that aid be given to the delegation in its work. Thorough satisfaction waa expressed by Chairman- Mack and other memliera of the sub-comniitteo with the progress of the work going on at the Armory, where the convention is to be held. The members of the committee, with n few oxcentions. wore not inclined to dis cuss freely the outlook with respect to individual candidatex for the Presidential i nomination. I 1 At the close of the meeting It was an nounced by Chairman Mack that after adjourning to-day the committee would not meet again in llaltlmore until aliout Juno 15, when permanent headquarters will be made hore. Those who attended the meeting were: Norman K. Mack of New York, ex officio chairman; P. Ij. Hall of Nebraska, Urey Woodson of Kentucky, Jnsephus Daniels of North Carolina, K. W.

Koosevelt to-night freely admitted that one of his most prom nent supporters wa George W. Perkins, rormorly or J, P. Morgun .t Co. the admission was aside rrom the Colonel's prepared sieech. He had de clared that he did not desire tn indulge in personalities, but that it had been necessary to answer publicly somo or the thargoF made !y his political opponents. He then read the list or men, headed by Senator I,orlmcr, that he said wcro sup porting President Tart. Thin ho made a feature of his set speech. He was inter rupted by a man who yelled: "Well, isn't Perkins supporting you?" Mr. Koosevelt took tho bait with evident relish. "He certainly K" ho shouted witli a great display or his whlto teeth and his famous stnilo much in evidence. and you .won't embarrass tne by asking me that question. You can guarantee," continued the Colonel, and he snapped his jaw, "that every siipKirter of initio comes out In the oen when ho supports me. And you can guarantee that after 1 accept his support I won't repudiate him. And further let me say you can guarantee that ir you search rrom top to bottom or my record In the ast nnd In tho future you'll not find that I over did, that I do or over shall do for Mr. Perkins or any other human lelng one thing that I wouldn't tell this audience in its entire detail." Three-quarters or an hour berore the meeting began the arena was jammed with 10,000 people, while more than that number wore turned away. At Mechanics Hall, where the overflow meeting was held, there were e.nno present und many were refu(d admission. The platform at the Arena wan roped, in resemblance of u prize ring, and when the Colonel entered some one caused a great laugh by shying a hat into the ring. Much of the Roosevelt speech was a repetition of that made lust night at Worcester, Mass. He said that he did not care to deal in personalities, but had to be "frank with the people." "Ist night I felt obliged to answer at tacks made upon me by Mr. Taft, but I have no desire that this campaign shall be one of personalities, so to-night I will only allude to him to show where he and I differ. I hold the present contest to be more than a mere factional fight in the Republican party. M'When President Taft wanted to say that he did not want the Ixrimer support he came'tb Massachusetts to say it, but when I wanted to declare tha I did not desire any I,orime'r backing I went di rectly to Illinois to say so. I have made no assault on Mr. Taft. I think ho means well but is feeble. However, he is sup ported by men who are neither well moan ing nor feeble and who have designs on the prosperity of the count ry," Here the Colonel shifted to tho well known issues ho has advocated In all of his recent speeches and made no further allusions to the President. Col. Konsvelt made his denunciation of President Tntt of latt night stand out in high lights to-day in his campaign ing by avoiding all reference to the Pres ident. He did not mention the President's name. The closest he came to any allu sion to the President wan once at Kail River, when speaking of the courts as being out of sympathy with the average American. "I'm never nfr.iid to attack the courts" said the Colonel. "I do It when attack their decisions are wrong; nt times I even Presidents." The Colonel swung around the circle of southeastern Massachusetts' to-day. His territory was chielly the great textile and manufacturing sections. His speeches were a return to the points he has been pounding, the right of the peoplo to rulo. "I was not n dictator when President, but I got what tho country needed," lie said several times.

The centre of his effort was nn appeal 1 to the wi rk Ingmen, and ho made It direct ly o n the basis of his work as President that changed the enforcement or the eight hour law from u farce to n riuld ob servance. "I was the first man who had the eight hour law rigidly enforced, first in New York State as Governor and then In the nation ns President," said the Colonel. Answering the billboard placards widely posted in thin section, implying that he was ii n enemy of tho eight hour law, the Colonel said: "Our opKnentH have been reduced to misrepresentation und direct falsification. Hie man who wrote that billboard state ment is deliberately telling what he knows to bo untrue." "I put conditions nf labor on the Panama Canal on thi highest standard of any Government work In tho civilized world," declared the Colonel, talking to crowds or workers rrom the big shoe factories of Brockton. When he enmo to tho tariff the Colonel said: "I favor a protective tariff. I want to hii it protect the wago earner." He was speaking to n crowd of wage earners at Kali River. "I want the wage earner to get somo of it nnd not have ull of tho profit stop in tho office. We should have u bureau whose special business it should bo to investigate conditions of lalor. In other words I am for a square deal in the tariff." Brockton, the first city tho Colonel spnko in thin morning, gave him a demon stration. 'I be suuare at tho railroad sta tion wan packed with 8,000 people. As his automobile followed the band in the parade through tho town 20000 people turned out Into the street and yelled ror him. The factory hands leaned out of the windows and cheered. Mr. Roose velt talked at a special meeting of 2,ono workmen und othem at the George W. Keith shoe factory. Mr. Koosnvclt motored most or tho day, going from Brockton to Taunton by machine, nnd from Now Bedford to Full River the sumo way. It was a cloudy, drizzly day. At New Bedford he spoke to 3,tjo in tho rink, at Kali River to 4,000 In the armory and to u large crowd in the park. In Taunton 2.S00 stood in a drizzle to hear him. In none of the places except Hrocktoti. however, did the Colonel set the town agog. The factoiy men were hot for the Colo nel.

The most sanguine say that the Colonel will get u majority of the dele gates. Both sides ugreo that it is going to be a tough light and that things are all mixed up so thut nothing can be told until Tuesday is over.

Drawing n paral lel lictwccn Grant and Tart and taking what many or his hearers thought were covert flings at Roosevelt, Vice-President James Schoolcraft Sherman made tho principal address at thedrant Day dinner of the Americus Club nt the Hotel Schen ley to-night. Following n stirring eulogy of Grant, Sherman exclaimed: "He (Grant 1 did not deem himself the sole reliance of the republic. He raised no irreverent hand against the altar of the national sanc tuary, its Constitution and itn courts. Yet even for him the precept and example of Washington could not bo spurned by the American people, " Ijiuuching into a dissertation on "what ull thi-. signifies iu the affairs of to-day," Sherman said: "No excuse existn for frenzy, for reckless speech nnd action, for overthrow of our institutions by fac tion or demagogue, "The voice of tho people is supreme, but it is not uttered in byways or on street corners, from dry goods box, stage or car platform, nor 's it tho declaration of any one man. however self-asserting or nudaciouo.

Tho French delegation had expected to dine with the President on Monday night, and after attending the reception by Mayor Uaynor at the City Hall and the luncheon given by the New York committee of France-Amerique and the r rench Institute of America, had planned to leave in the afternoon for Washington. As the President's Invitation has now been changed to a luncheon on Tuesday, they will be obliged to remain' in New York another day and will miss the reception arranged for them at the Na tional Press Club in Washington. It is possible also that some of their other engagements will have to be cancelled. A visit to Mayor Qaynor at the City Hall at II o'clock yesterday morning began the formalities for the visitors. The Mayor mot the sixteen members of the delegation in the large reception room and each was presented to him by Etlenne l,anel. the French Consul-General in New York, who said: "Air.

The members of the delegation thought that their first step after landing In New York should be to pay their respects to the representative of this big city.

The Mayor greeted each cordially and said: "I am very glad Indeed to receive you gentlemen, and later on in the day I am to attend a reception to you your first reception m ine city 01 .ew om -and I can then greet you more intimately and 1 may nave, sometning to say to you men. I will content myself now with simply welcoming you and expressing to you how glad I am to receive you." In Irohalf of all the delegates M.
