Marietta. A. D. Alderman, post
master in this city for the past 10
months, has been suspended pending

transferred his stock in the Marietta
Journal, an evening publication, of
which he is editor.
This is expected soon and no crim
inal proceedings will follow, it is
said. No formal charges have been
filed against Alderman, and because
of his physical condition, it is hardly
thought anything further will be done

known newspaper men of southern
Ohio, and for many years has been
identified in the newspaper business,
succeding his father, the late E. R.
Alderman ,for many years treasurer

ROOSEVELT DECLINES TO ACCEPT
EIGHT MASSACHUSETTS DELE-GATES-AT-LARGE.
PRESIDENT WINS BY 3,955
Taft and Colonel Make an Even Break
In District Elections 19,719 Is
Champ Clark's Majority Over Gov
Boston, May 4. "Presented" to
President Taft by the colonel, those
eight Republican delegates-at-large
who were elected at the primaries for
Roosevelt, have most emphatically re
fused to vote for the president.
After two conferences the delegates
announced that they had decided not
to take any Joint action on the atti
tude of Colonel Roosevelt In releasing
them from the obligation to vote for
him. But in individual interviews
each declared that the voters' instruc
tions were paramount and binding.
Boston, May 4. Massachusetts
emerged from Its first presidential
preferential primary election to find
that the Republican voters had ex
pressed a preference for the re-noml-nation
of President Taft, but had giv
en Colonel Roosevelt the eight dele-gates-at-large
to the national conven
tion. To these eight votes Colonel
Roosevelt renounced all claim. The
Democratic voters of the state ex
pressed a preference for Speaker
Champ Clark, although the delegates-at-large
to Baltimore will go pledged
to Governor Foss.
Returns from 1,077 out of 1,080 elec
tion precincts give:
Republican (presidential prefer
ence): Taft, 74,808; Roosevelt, 71.
203; LaFollette, 1,756.
Delegates-at-large: Baxter (heading
Roosevelt group), 74.121; Crane (head
ing Taft group), 65,876.
Democratic (presidential prefer
ence): Clark, 19,903; Wilson, 9,206:
delegates -at-large, Coughlln (pledged
to Foss), 17,050; Wllllams( for prefer
ence primary), 8,256.
On the Democratic ticket, although
ten of the fifteen candidates for delegates-at-large
to Baltimore were either
pledged to or Indicated to be "for"
Governor Foss, there was no Foss
name in the presidential preference
column. Speaker Clark, whose name
appeared in the preference ballot and
who defeated Governor Wilson by a
vote of 2 to 1, did not have a single
pledged delegate on the list. Many
of the Democratic district delegates
were also elected pledged to Foss.
