Referendum Is Incorporated
COLORADO SPRINGS, Sept. 21. Pro
gressive Republicans won a substantial
victory in the Republican state conven
tion, which concluded Its sessions here
tonight by the selection of a full stute
ticket. In one of the sharpest lights in
ihc history of the party in this slate they
prevented the adoption of a resolution
condemning the initiative and referendum,
secured instead a plank favoring its sub-
mission to the people and commending the
action of Republican legislators who voted

to the upbuilding of the state, and the
Payne-Aldrlch tariff bill was accepted as
a lultillment of the pledge of the national
Republican platform for revision down

changes will be nccossaiy In It and that
these "should be made as speedily as pos-

"Inequalities," the platform observes,
"will be found in any tariff law."
The extreme progressive wing of the
party, under the leadership of Merle D.
Vincent, who is credited with the indorse
ment of Theodore Roosevelt, offered a
minority report striking out the Indorse
ment of Guggenheim, commending Sena
tors La Follette, Dolllver. Brlstow- and
Beveridge for their attitude in national
affairs, welcoming ex-President Roose
velt's return to the field of political dis
cussion and strongly Indorsing the Initia
tive and referendum, but the minority re

you and hoped that the outcome of your
mlsslqn would be what all desired."
Mr. Roosevelt's letter to Mr. Storer,
fl-jlorl TCovonilir.v 17 1 Rflfl r.(inrirn!n:r the
desired appointment as assistant secre
tary of tho navy, follows:
"Dear Bellamy I have been thinking
over that business, now will you let me
write perfectly frankly?
"If you care to say anything for me,
old fellow, I think you could say It bet
tor a good deal If I were away. So unr
less you think lo the contrary, or unless
there Is some roason for change, I be
lieve It would be best for mc to come and
dine with you and then you see McKlnley
by yourself, if you care to do so art all,
which 1 earnestly hope you will. Give
my best love to Mrs. Storer.
"P. S. I hope you won't think thin
impertinent. I should rather have you
speak in my bohalf lhan any one else
In tho United States; and I think you
could do most good, but I rather hate
to go there with you, for somehow it does
not seem to me that, it would be a good
thing for you to speak for me bofore me.
Tho resignation of Bellamy Storer, am
bassador to Austrla-Hungarv was trans
mitted to Washlncton on March 7. 1006.
and was accepted. His resignation was
requested by the state department and It
later developed that nerlous differences
had arisen between President Roosvclt
and the ambassador primarily because the
latter had failed to answer a communi
cation from the president. Tho communi
cation enclosed a lotter to Mrs. Storer
calling upon her to give writton promises
not to Interfere In Vatican politics.
The point at Issue was that Mrs. Storer
had used the official position of her hus
band towards the appointment of Arch
blshon Ireland to tho cardlnalale. The
Storers responded lo the action of the
slate department by giving for publica
tion letters from Mr. Roosevelt 'when he
was governor of New York, in which he
expressed his high appreciation of Arch
bishop Ireland Mrs. Storer In explana
tion of this letter stated that It had been
written to her so that she might show it
lo the pupal secretary of state in order
to convince tho Vatican of the friendly
attitude of prominent Americans toward
Archbishop Ireland's policy.
Following the sending of a letter by
Mrs. Storer to President Roosevelt, the
members of the cabinet and tho senate
committee on foreign rolatlons, tho presi
dent gave out the correspondence between
him and Embassador and Mrs. Storer In
which he said that Mr. Slorer's refusal to
answer his lotter and the publication of
various private letters justified the em
bassador's removal and that he (the preal.
dent) had staled with absolute clearness
his position and the rcaon why it was
out of the question for him as president
to get any archbishop made a cardinal.

CHARLTON IS LOSES
IN FIRST SKIRMISH
Self-Confessed Slayer of Wife
Making Hard Fight Against
JERSEY CITY. N. J., Sept. 21. Porter
Charlton lost the opening skirmish to
day in his fight to escape extradition for
the confessed murder at Lake Como,
Italy, of hla wife, Mary Scott Castle
Judge Blair, before whom ho was ar
raigned, declined to admit a plea of in
sanity and took the application for his ro
turn under advisement. An attack on the
treaty with Italy on which extradition Is
asked thereupon became the main prop
of the defense.
Several alienists were In court ready to
testify to Charlton's mental incapacity,
but wore denied a hearing under Judge
Prosecutor Pierre Garven. who repre
sented the state, argued that the question
of extradition must be settled at Wash
ington. Charlton's counsel asked for the
dismissal of proceedings on the ground
thai no proof of tho allegations in the
dossier had been offered, but Judge Elalr
overruled tho motion. R. Floyd Clark,
one of the Charllon attorneys, then at
tacked the treaty with Italy.
He quoted from the Italian penal code
a stattito passed In 1S90 providing that
no Italian citizen should bo extradited
and said this was a virtual abrogation of
the treaty. He argued that a treaty must
be equally binding on both nations and
that if Italy were not bound to surrender
her citizens, ncithor was the United
Stales. In case of Charlton's dismissal,
he promised thai he would bo placed in
a sanitarium In Washington.
If Judge Blair's ruling Is adverse to
Charlton, Ihe case would be certified to
by Secretary Knox, who will pass on the
question of extradition.
Pending the decision by Judge Blair,
Charlton was again returned to jail. To
day Is the prisoner's twenLy-second
birthday. Evidence produced as to his
citizenship showed he was born In Omaha.
Neb.. September 21. 1838.
Our Despotic Democracy.
The above is not paradox; it is fact.
By this time nearly every one has heard
of "C'allnonism,', and knows that it
means tho absoluto rulership of 391
representatives of somo 200,000 Ameri
can citizens, by 'Cthc tall figure in a
white waistcoai, with a pink carnation
in his buttonhole, a white whisker un
der his chin, and :i gavol in his left
hand" Speaker Joseph G. Cannon.
But, as William Bayard Halo remarks,
in an article in the World's Work,
perhaps it is not quite, so clear why
Cannonisni is and how it works. This
the article proceeds to explain, show
ing how the speaker's strength lies in
his power to appoint tho standing corn-
lUlLLUCf UUU LilUll UUUllllIUU, III iut
invariable previous vote to adopt the
rules of the preceding congress, ana
in his control of the privilege of talk
ing. The rules are "bull-proof and
sky-high," and aro constantly protected
by the comnntteo on rulosj of which
the speaker is tho chairman. Whon
such power is vested in a personality
combining narrow-mindedness, cunning
and vanit so the author tersely char
acterises Cannon these .traits become
conservatism, sagacity and administra
tive force, and his control becomes
complete. Ample proof of this is evi
denced by the failure last spring of
the insurgents' struggle in their con
test against the rules, and by the re
cent tariff travesty.
The proof of 'Mr. Hale's article wa3
read by a number of congressmen, ann
other well-informed poraons, and was
declared correct by all of these gen
tlemen, except one, "who maintains that
