The Jubilation that lasted for live minutes could do a sensl tle Ihioat no good, A lot of Hip Pto gresslvps teemed lo think that what Mr PnkltiM had Just said about Itooievelt was Hie division of the Republican mn. Terence committee Instead nf merely Us It pott of what the Progressive committee had said. The vision of Itnnwvelt tioml natpd by the Republicans leaped before them. When Chaliman Rnbltis got or der a delegate said "Read that iigaln," So Hip Republican report was read once more, this time by Chairman Rob ins, because his voice carries further than Mr. Perkins's. When he finished thp theatre hur.zed with conversation, The delegates were asking one iiiinthnr what they thought of It Tlipy wpre oxerjoyed because their committee hadn't been se duced by the wily Murray Crane, It had kepi the faith, It hail stuck to Teddy, "Ulory be' Cheers for the committee. We want Teddy T-e-d-d-y !' Mr, Perkins m ule a brief speech. He said that the Progressive National Com mittee had made its eonclllatoiy state ment In January for two purposes.

"Meanwhile," he said, "we must do nothing to mar what 1 call a perfcrt record up to this moment on which to appeal to the people. We must hold In reserve our final act so It will be m clear that our action Is correct that all the world will ngree with us. As chair man of the committee, I ask you to trust us." Applause. The other members of the committee then had their say. This served the dou ble purpce of delaying the Progressive nomination and of informing the dele gates of what had taken place in last night's conference with the Republi cans. Charles .1. Hon.ip.irte was then Intro. ducid. "I think," said Mr. Honaparte. "that It was a more Important conference than the two reports or the newspaper com ment on It isci'incd inclined to Infer. The Republicans said most significantly and eloquently nothing. They had no one to present as a substitute for Col, Roose velt no re.u-on to give us for what they admitted by their sllttico to bo the un answerable truth. "They did not find themselves In n position to answer ea or nay. When men representing the convention of a great party. Including some of the mot experienced nnd astute politicians In the country', are In 11 position in which they f'.und themselves last evening, certainly that party must do some explaining when they come before tne people for not having dono what ought to have been done. "In view of that fact It certainly Is proper for this convention to make It clear to the meanest understanding and most prejudiced m rid that It Is not the fault of the Progressive party that the candidate of the Republican party Is not the man pteemlneutiy titled to be our next President " I'srkrr Kxpeels llUngreeiiicll t.

Replying to a query from Massachu setts as to whether the convention was still In a position to nominate Roo-evelt ahead of the Republican nomination Chairman Robins said: "The convention still has entire liberty and ample time and Is proceeding with full knowledge of the entire situation, i We don't Intend to be hoodwinked by scheming and cunning politicians or p stampeded by overcnthuslastic and badly .

A successor to the Goddess of Liberty appeared Just before Uic afternoon ses sion convened, Nearly all the delegates were In the Auditorium early, their en thusiasm and lung power apparently un abated.

Dean Lewi", chairman of the resolu tions committee, took but a few minutes to ilnlsh the seriatim reading of the platform, thereby opening It for amend ment or adilltli-ns from the tloor. A suggestion of Dudley l'milke of Indi ana to extend the ,-lvi service plank to Include nil non-p-mical otiUers and postmasters too was Inst easily. A delegate from Pennsyivanla who wanted the navy used as a nmplement , to the merchant marine In time of peine , got brief mercy from h's fellows. The delegates also drowned with a roaring "No"' an amendment which would com mit the party to a specific method of bringing about world pence The fact that the prohibition plank wiw Iot In committee by a vote of ,10 to 13 did not deter Delegate Cowper. He submitted hW plank "without com ment " That was unnecessary. "No, no.'i jelled delegates In all parls of the (loor. "Yeows" and catcalls fol lowed. .Mr Roblus's gavel a regular' carpenter's hnmmer pounded deep grooves In n wooden block on the table. The chair offi red opportunity for a full, 1 fair and flee discussion. It was taken. Frank O, Curtis of New York moved to submit the prohibition proposition to ' the ptople, but his proposal wns defeated 111 short order. The delegates were cer tainly manufacturing their feelings. Ileelnreil Twin Issues "The platform," declared Henry J. Allen of Kansas, "is not complete with out this plank. Tills Is the mightiest , moral nnd economic Issue of the age, It Is n question that relates tn our courage. Prohibition and suffrage are twin issues." James It. Garfield of Ohio stood up to answer him in a wave of laughter and applause, Mr Harileld Is a prohibition 1st, but he told the convention that the liquor question, In his opinion, must be solved by the slow, tedious process of education. "It takehVourage," he milled, "to postpone action on it." A total afistalncr from Texas, who admitted ho has not had a hard drink for twenty years ("Poor fellow," ex claimed some ono), proclaimed In a husky voice that a prohibition plank would drlvo other planks Into th ills- , rani And ho added : I "We might Just as well descend to William .lennlngs nrynn," , The crowd In the bleachers on thei platform thought llryan was In the preHs i seals and stood up to laugh nt him, but ho wasn't In sight. A. H. Slcvert of Minnesota got tho Moor lo speak for the plank. Tho con- ' ventlnn tltlereil The ripple grew and expanded, The delicate voice of Hie, speaker was scarcely atullhlo in the press als Somebody blew a shrill blast mi a police whistle. i "Have another grape Juice," yelled a redhot mill In the New York delega-1 t lot), and the convention toon up the, 1 1 1 It-ti It.

Robins discreetly remarked that If any one thought he had jsiwer and capacity to sjs-ak for prohibition, lie might have tho platform. Rx-Lleut.-Gov Wallace of Colorado approached tho stage on the run a gray hatred campaigner who dared faco the crowd, He got throws -i with his speech in spite of the "(ls lung drawn out, the Jeers nnd several requests to "give us a rest " Dean Lewis closed the discussion and North Dakota, Colorado and Kansas de mandml a roll call. Voir nn Prohibition I'lniiU, William J Hrynn, who had l,een sit ting in rtie jircs section most of the ii i.v, did not stay to hear the roll cull, on which prohibition was beaten by a vote of fi!3 2-ti to 89 1.6. Alabama gave six for tabling and six against Most of th" Stute delegations were divided on this question. North Da kota's five delegates were alone in fa vor of going ahead with the resolution. The Maine spokesman said: "Maine believe In prohibition, but votes to table." The Mississippi chairman announced; "With pride, twelve votes for tabling the resolution." He was reminded that hts State has only ten votes. "Then ten votes for tabling," he re. torted. New York stood UA-j for tabling. I'i against ; New Jersey U for tabling, none nci'iist . Massachusetts If. for tabling, I agamt , Connecticut, 7 for tabling, none agalnt, nnd Pennsylvania 4Sa for tabling, l'j against, Chairman Robins told tho delegates that the defeat of the resolution was wisii tatcsmaiolilv, "and now- If thosn who really believed In prohibition wanted to 'tainl up nnd be recognized they could do so." Kverybody laughed nnd Mood up. On motion of Gifford Plnehot a delo gat from Porto Rico will lm admitted to tho next Progresslvo national con vention If there Is a next.

Mr. Perkins, with n phone receiver against his ear. was smiling over the Republican doings. -At r. .1.1 tho Pro gresslves heard that a woman had mounted a press box In the Coliseum and that when Chairman Harding rapped for order the crowd "was more violent."

The bulletins from the Coliseum sup plied tho spark that set thu Progiesslves off again on a "Teddy" demonstration thai promised even to rival Wednes day's ierformance, The convention had taken a recess at n :1 ! o'clock for llf teen minutes. It was tiow fi :3,1 and the hubbub of chatter pa the floor continued. Mr. Rohlns's gavel began lo pound, but nn anxious Oliloan called for "tho latest from the Republicans." ft. K.
