Without doubt tho more belligerent men among the friends of tho Colonel will insist upon putting his name to a rump convention. Col. Roosevelt him self d(xs not countenance this plan.

The surrender of the plan to bolt tho convention on ac ceptaueo of an unfavorable report from the committee on credentials knocked the tight out of tho Colonol's delegates. Tho reason why the moderate, scheme was formulated and accepted by tho Colonel's advisers was tho realization by the Colonel himself that the lighters could not carry tho Roosevelt delegation with them. Thus the plan to throw the convention into disorder and to put a hoomjvou partisan in ttie chair by force was dlscovere.1 and with It went the "light 'em" spirit .Nothing showed the change of fighting nor wero there as many conferences between tho Colonel's field marshals.

Thus the crowd that taxed the strength of tho Chicago police faded uway. In tho Florentine room, which has served the convention as the Roosevelt head quarters, there were speeches by the Never Say Die partisans from early morn ing until lato in the evening nnd there was band music and singing. The room was never packed. The hallways, which have been tilled with a shouting, panting mob of Roosevelt enthusiasts from the j time that the Colonel made his first ap- pearanci) here, were empty throughout , most of the day except of the guard and , newt-paper men. The guards had noth ing to do. The loyal followers who have put thotn selves under the Colonel's standard and havo declared themselvess his peculiar army no matter where lie may lead them met in tho hallway from time to time and talked over the prospect for a new party. They were sure that one would lie born. They said it would not organize on the ashes of tho present convention, but would l postponed until they heard from their own districts. The progres sive convention, if it takes ulnce at all, will not come for a month or six weeks at the very earliest. Col. Roosevelt, ns he indicated in his statement to th" dele gates yesterday, is not willing to go into tho progressive light unless there is a demand for his presence, lie adds thnt the demand must bo "general " Tile delegates must go back lo their districts, sound local opinion nnd see if the pro gressive idea is general enough to warrant the lorination of a new party, Somo of tho Colonel's friends pointed out that such a parly would draw from both the Republican and Democratic ! parties a 4 they now stand.

They will gA back to their districts and talk to tholr constituents. Thoy have no doubt that by tho mil hi lo of August there will be a progressiva convention and that this convention will nomlnato Theodore Rooso velt. "If thoro Is a progressive party," tho Colonel has said repeatedly, "I will bo In It." But he has made It equally plain that he will not seek the nomination. If It comes to him ho will accept, provided, as he has Insisted from tho beginning, that tho demand is sufficiently general to warrant tho movement at all. Tho friends of the Colonol wore surprised to-day at the action of tho convention in accepting tho report of tho credentials committee seating tho two California debgates. The Cnllforiiln Cnntrsti. "The California contests woro tho rawest of tho lot," they said. "Wo rather thought they would gi vo us these, so that they would be ablo to say to tho cotirtry, 'There, do you see? Wo'vo given in to them.' We expected that thay would give us California and with them fifteen or sixteen more, but not enough to nominate Col. Roosevelt. This would havo given a stronger position lieforo tho country. "But now that the two California con tests have been thrown wo expect that they will givo us nono of tin contostad delegates at all " Tho crisis in the enthusiasm for Col. Roosevelt was met and passed at 10 o'clock last night when he came out of a meeting of delegates in the Florentine room at tho Congress. The crowd in the hall was suffocating. Women who had come in the morning were still there, filled with the excitement of seeing tho Colonel's swift passage through tho hall. The crowd cheered and ho waved to them in his short armed, fisted way. But as soon ns he vanished behind tho door of tho Presidential suite and the door slammed Ivehind him the crowd began to filter away. Tho delegates coming from the meeting let it bo known that vigorous action was suspended, per haps dismissed..

Roosevelt's name formally to tho convention that he hns been requested by the Colonel himself not to do so. When Mr. I'rondergnst was asked why he was not to make tho speech he declined to give an answer. The plan of the Roosevelt people late to-night Is to sit ullent in the conven tion after the credentials report has been completed. They will not present minority reports from any of the com mittees nnd will takn no part in any of the proceedings of tho convention. This programme applies not to nil of Col. Roosevelt's delegates, ns some of them do not believe In participating In what they call a "silent convention." Mr. Roosevelt told the delegates In' caucus to-night that Inasmuch ns the convention had turned against the Roosevelt people on the California con test there was no uso In carrying the light any further. The delegates un derstand therefore that they would sit tight nnd silent on further reports from the committee on credentials. The effect of this will he to hasten tho action of the convention andto further the car rying out of the Taft people's pro gramme. This Idea applied also to putting Mr. RooanvAlt's. name In nomination.

Mr. Garfield was asked and he replied: "They will get a chance to carry out ,nolr Instruction When pressed to say whether they would get that chance here In Chicago at the close of the convention he replied thut he could not tell, but that tho chance would surely come. After Col. Roosevelt had retired for the night word came out from the con ference room thnt the new party will be christened cither the Progressive party or the National Progressive party. To-morrow there will probably bo a mass meeting of the Roosevelt men at which plans for the organization of this party will be discussed.

Whilo tho President was firm In his stand against any compromise it was presented emphatically to him by his advisers that tho developments of the last two or three days have mado it more essential than over for him to "stand pat." Ono member pointed out to him that since the fight has been carried thus far ho owes it to tho Republican party for the life of that party and for its success next fall to carry tho fight through. Scores of telegrams of encouragement along this line reached the President to day from Chicago and other sections of tho country. "Teddy is licked to a frazzle and your nomination is assured, " wired one of the party's leaders from the convention hall. Another telegram, signed by a large number of tho North Carolina delegates, read: "Stick, Bill, stick. Accept no com promise. North Carolina with you." Another telegram, signed by delegates from various States, read: "Hope you stand unalterably for no compromise until the necessity, if it exists, is demonstrated by ballot. We lelieve you are holding all you have and likely to mako gains. This statement is based upon careful investigation." A prominent Republican of Beaver, Pa declared that tho President hod the "autocratic fourflushing Roosevelt beat to a finish," nnd that tho people of Penn sylvania were with him "despite Bill Flinn." The President returned from his golf game with' his son Robert shortly after 7 o'clock and road all the bulletins that had come in tho meantime and up to the adjournment of the session.

Hadley decline tho nom ination the convention might nominate Senator Kcnyon of Iowa, who has been Senator Cummlns's manager here, or Senutor Itorah of Idaho, and yet on the other hand, many of the New Yorkers who have fought for PreMdcnt Taft's nomination here Insist on tho renom Inatlon of Vice-President Sherman.

LAST TRIP FOR BLAINE CLUB. Cincinnati Mnrchcra Not In Attend Any More Conventions. Cincinnati, Ohio, June 21, Pleased with overy feature of the trip to tho Republican national convention except their Inability to remain until a candidato for President is nominated, nearly all of the members of tho famous Blaine Club, founded by George B. Cox, returned to-day from Chicago. It is not improbable that this was the last trip tho Blaine Club will make to a national convention. It was a notice ablo fact that tho Cinclnnatluns were the only marching organization that went to Chicago, Not only did no other out side city send a uniformed olub but even Chicago did not produce ono. It is understood that Charles P. Taft, brother of the President, and ox-Mayor Julius Flesohmann paid tho greater part of the expense of the olub'a trtn to Chicago and that their refusal to put up more money caused the return of the members before the end of the conven tion, WHICN THIRSTY, a tuas'poenful nf Horstnrd's Acid Phosphate In a (lass ot water, sweetened to suit, makes a delicious drink. .AO, i Many at Home Wire for Har mony Candidate, but as Many Say: Taft. LITTLE DOUBT LEFT President's Managers Feel Assured He Has Safe Majority. TEST VOTE TELLS TALE Roosevelt Men Muster Only 499; Their Opponents Show 569. WILL HURRY TO A FINISH Root as Permanent Chairman Will Omit Address; Then for the Finals. Everything at Chicago last night lndi. cated that Taft and Hadley would be tho ticket and that it would be nomi nated this afternoon or evening. The President apparently has a aajs) majority of the delegates, and both tho Roosevelt nnd Tuft factions agree that Hadley Is the man for second place. Secretary Hilles, Senator Crane and other leaders of the Taft forces said last night that what they considered the test vote on the seating of delegates taken In tho convention, when the Taft men had B63 to 489 for the Roosevelt delegates, proved to them that Mr. Taft hus a safe majority and will surely be renominated. There was some talk of Taft with drawing when It became apparent that ho has a majority and can surely be renominated, but the managers of his fight declared that no such action would bo taken. The convention, after a running fight, upheld the National Committee in the seating of the Taft contesting delegates In every Instance so far as the work proceeded, but when tho gathering had adjourned for the day Michigan had not been reached. The highest vote, polled by the Tuft forces was GO.'i in the Ninth Alabama district ense, while their vote fell to r.42 In thn California contest. Tho credentials committee, after an j all night session, continued to settle contests In favor of Taft. The Roosevelt people were outvoted throughout. The committee on resolutions ad journed until 9:30 o'clock to-day, re turning tho report on the platform to the sub-committee to redraft some of the planks. Tho Roosevelt followers, realizing de feat, will not nominate a ticket In a rump convention, but will go back to their constituents, and If they find en couragement organize a third party nnd place a ticket In the field. Many of Roosevelt's most faithful workers ngree that the Colonel's cause has been badly hurt by Flinn and Honey, who early pushed aside Gov, Hadley, Senator Rornh nnd other less exploslte progressives. There Is hope that the convention can conclude Its work to-night, but Chair man New of tho arrangements commit tee has taken tho Coliseum for next week, fearing Hint the convention will go over till Monday. Scandals growing nut of the admis sion of persons without tickets to tho Coliseum havo led to changes In the personnel of the police guard manage ment. The delegates nnd others who are do ing the work of tho convention nre near exhaustion. All are anxious to get the work finished nnd go home.
