There are other details of the Roose

CTTI"AGO. June 17. Twenty-six of
Georgla'6 twenty-eight delegates to the

the disturbers "a bunch of infernal scoun

whereupon he picked up a chair and lilted
it menacingly into the air. Peacemakers
separated the combatants and Boone re

Henry Lincoln Johnson, recognized
leader of the twelve negroes on 1 he dele

owed an apology to those men he had
designated as "scoundrels ' BOone em

The tesi of the relative strength of Taft
and Roosevelt In the delegation came on
a resolution that the chairman cast the
delegation's entire vote as a unit for Taft.
J. C Styles, -I L. Fererson and S. H
Bllncey, Whose names were attached to
the letter made public last night by
Roosevelt headquarters, voted "yes."
The three admitted privately that they
had signed the letter under the misap
prehension that the state leaders had gone
over to Roosevelt.
While tiie caucus was in progress cries
of "throw him out; lie don't helong in
here.' came through the door
A moment later the door opened and out
came a negro wearing a Roosevelt badge,
propelled by 8 dozen willing haids. The
nesrro was Dr. .7. M, Lewis of Chicago,
who said he was looking for Grier to tell
him that he had located A. N', Fluker, one
of the delegates Injured In a wreck early
mday Orler had claimed that Flnker
was friendly to Roosevelt and that the
Taft forces were trying to hide him. The i
Taft supporters denied they had tried to
hide Fluker.
Delegates in Accident.
CHICAGO, June 17. More than a score
of men and women, among whom were
members of the Georgia Taft delegation
to the Republican national convention,
were injured today, some seriously. In a

CHICAGO. June 17. At a mass meet
ing of uncontested Roosevelt delegates,
called together after 11 o'clock tonight,
a thousand -word protest was wired to
President Taft against "the announced
intention of Victor Rosewater, cilalrman
of the national committee, to allow the
contested delegates to vote on their own
The meeting was attended by all who
could be drummed together at the late
hour and all were Invited to sign the
Mr Taft Is asked to use the weight of
hie influence in this crisis to prevent euch
action hy Mr. Rosewater. It is claimed
by the protestants that there are about
seventy-nve delegates who are generally
regarded as not honestly entitled to vote
in the convention. It Is urged as con-'
itrary to justice and to parllamentar v law
that these contested nelegateg vote on
their own case... "They will In effect n
vote.' says the piotext, "If they vote on
the temporary organization of the con
vention." The protest proceeds:
'A nomination h a convention so
mad? up could not command the respect
of the American people. It is our desire
to appeal from the biased, factional de
cision of a national committee, a ma
jority of whose members have been re
pudiated by the Repunlican voters to the
000 uncontested delegates who repre
sent the Republican party today.
"We are threatened with 8 denial of
tiie right to make that appeal. This
threat will not be carried out unless you
at least tacitly consent to it. because
the majority of tho national committee
assume to be working under your lead
ership." Most of the contested cases are thrn
outlined to the president, partlculai stress
being laid on those from Texas, Washing
ton nnd California.
The telegram concludes:
"These are but samples, Wo are will
ing to siihtnlt these cases to any court,
to an arbitration board, to the lion un
contested delegates, or to any tribunal
except the beneficiaries of the fraudulent
decisions of the national committee In
our opinion the rank and file of the Re
publican party will neither tolerate nor
support a nomination made by delegates
seated In this fraudulent manner. In
this crisis in the history not only of the
Republican party, but of free govern
ment will you remove this blot from
the Republican party, by calling on your
supporters In this convention to disavow
this action of the national committee?"
CHICAGO. June II -That Senator
Root will be ejected temporary chairman
of the national convention immediately
after cpnverilnc; tomorrow was asserted

Taft in states where the president Is In

Thr statement follows
We denounce (lie fraud by which the

CHICAGO, June 17. Colonel Roose
veil's reception to the Roosevelt delegates
and alternates todav was the most stren
uous experience he has gone through
since he reached Chicago.
SevOraJ times before the apparently
endless string of enthusiasts had passed
him, he cried out. "Not another man;
not another one."
I fe beean the hand shaking with ylm
and enthusiasm, but after a half hour
of it perspiration was roiling down his
face, his Voice was getting weaker.
Once he flashed out In another indig
nant protest against the action of the
national committee of the California
contested delegate case. He declared
"thcro was never anything like It."
"That's the kind of action that makes
revolutions," he exclaimed.
Three flashlight photographs. taken
within ten feet of Colonel Roosevelt,
helped to increase hlb nervousness and
make the long procession more than his
patience could endure. Finally he de
clared :
"Hold the line as 11 is and I'll pass
along It."
Policemen did the best they could to
hold 1t, and the colonel, with a bodyguard
of policemen and plain clothe? assistants,
was hustled to the hack end of the room,
up a private siair cas,- and around
through the hotel corridors to the room
of the Illinois delegation, where an "ex
perience meeting" was being held be
hind closed doors.
As Colonel Roosevelt was forcibly pro
pelled Into this room policemen pushed
the crowd back, blocked progress down
the stairway and stopped every one. Th,
declaration Of the guardian of the Illinois
headquarters, that "only Illinois delegates
could get in." dispersed the crowd tern
Lineup in Illinois.
CHICAGO. June 17 At a second cau
cus tonight, forty-one members of the Illi
nois delegation voted to support any can
didate for temporary chairman presented
by the Roosevelt faction It was assumed
thai the candidate wotid be Senator Ho
rah. Six voted in favor of Senator Root,
four did not vote, and seven were absent.
Preparing for Bolt.
CHICAGO, June 17. The Oklahoma
delegation today recognized the possibil
ity a bolt nnd In caucuses by a vote of
IS to 2 defeated a resolution binding lt
aelf to support the nominee of th con
vention for president and vice president.

CHICAGO, June 17. "If there. Is to
be a prayer, that prayer may get
through In peace. But after that
the fighting will begin at once."
So declared Governor Hiram W,
Johnson Of California this evening when
asked how soon the clash would come In
tomorrow's convention. The governor
smiled in glee at the thought of combat,
for cine Johnson dearly loves the fray
the wading in With both fists- the punch
ing of heads fof course In metaphor! and
the. knockdown and dragout of poll
tics. "Will California lead the fisrht?" was
a natural question.
"I don't know that California will lead
the fighting,'1 was the reply, spoken re
luctantly and regretfully, as if the apex
of fhe scrapping wfldge was the position
in which the governor lotfged to be.
;N'o, I don't know that we will lead the
fight, but you cap say that we will fight

"How do yon think the convention
stands for 'he balloting?"
"There Is no man in Chicago tonight
who knows that," put In Framis J.
Heney, who was with the governor.
"That s JUB( about the situation," as
sented Johnson. "N'o man ran say how
the convention stands between Roosevelt,
and Taft or between the progressives and
the conservatives. Tomorrow we will
get a teat Until then all is guess work
and uncertainty."

The "slide' to Roosevelt that seemed
to he starting yesterday did not gather
snowball increasing proportions to.ja
There were claims of converted dele
gates mostly negroes and counter
claims that the conversions had not
taken pla-r
But there was less thrill, less excite
ment, less singing and marching than
on previous davs. The Roosevelters hot
tied their enthusiasm for the big meet
ing at nielit. and iher never has been
any Taft enthusiasm at any stage of
the play So the day before the ble: flchl

and forlorn
Tomorrow, what? Perhaps some
broken heads. perhaps a bolt and the
splitting of the old Republican party.
Certainly much throbbing of hearts and
straininc of voices in one of the greatest
conventions of all American history.
California's statement of her case for
the Roosevell delegate was prepared
by Assemblyman C C. Young of Berke
ley, former Mayor Clinton T.. White of
Sacramento and Francis I- Heney, law
yers all. Then Chester If Rowell of
Fresno, editor, was commissioned to boil
the work down to shape. When all the
work was done, this was the way the
case In the Fourth district was put be
fore the delegates:
Issues in California Case.
The national Republican commit
tee has refused to recognize the cre
dentials of the secretary of the
State of California as to two of the
elected delegates front that state on
the ground that the law Of Califor
nia provided for the election of all
the delegates bv the state at large
Instead of electing part of them at
large and part of them by districts.
At the California primary election,
there was. as provided hy law, one
group of twenty-six candidates run
ning' at larice aF Taft delegates
These candidates were not segre
gated on the ballots by districts and
all of them were voted on by the
voters Of the entire state AM the
candidates for delegates assented to
this law, by qualifving to run, and by
running under It, and the candi
dates for presidency personally
assented to It, by filing over their
signatures their approvals of the
lists of delegates running under their
respective names. President Taft
was the first candidate to thus send
in his approval and thus became a
pj.rty to the election under the pro
visions of the law.
The Roosevelt delegates were elect
ed by majorities averaging over 76,000
and their ejection was accepted by
everyone In California, including the
Taft con. mi ttee, the Tnft newspapers
and the- candidates themselves. Cer
tificates of election were issued to
them by the secretar of state, which
are the only certificates Issued to
or presented by any claimants from
( alifornla. Subsequently a contest
against two of the elected delegates
was Inspired from outside the State
and the national committee, on that
contest, has unseated the two dele
gates named in the contest and has
seated the two defeated candidates
named as contestants
Three of the Roosevelt delegates,
Hiram W. Johnson. Charles S. Wli"il
er and Philip Bancroft, were resi
dents of the Fourth congressional
district, comprising roughly, the
northern half of the ity of San Fran
isco. Three of the Taft delegates,
Abbie S. Krebs, Morris Meyerfeld
Jr.. and E. H. Tryon were likewise
residents of the Fourth congres-donri!
district though. like all the Other
candidates, tney were voted on in
the whole state at latge.
District a New One,
The congressional dis;rlr-L i?, a new
district, but the election was held
under the law in the old precincts
It happens that the new district line
cuts through the middle of fourteen
precincts, m which 165S Roosevelt
j votes were cast. In these precincts
Ik, r. , 1 1 J . .
rne rnree Kooaeveit candidates for
delegates who resided In the district
received votes and the three Taft
candidates received 883, t?sr. and 885
Notes respect tveh .
The registrar of voters, in making
up his nrst returna to the secretary
of state, arbitrarily divided the votes
in these border precincts between the
two congressional districts, and the
secretary of state, mistakenly- sup
posing the returns to represent the
ascertained vote In the two districts
taaued a certified statement that the
tWenty-StX Taft delegates had re.
eelved majorities averaging about 50
In the fourth district. Both officials
Biihsequen-lv discovered th3lr mis
take and rescinded their certificates
and affidavits from them were pre
sented to the national committee,
showing that it was impossible "to
determine which candidate received
the most votes within the boundaries
of the Fourth district. The whole
city of Fan Frnncisc,-,. comprising the
Fourth and Fifth districts- the
Roosevelt candidates received VOteS
averaging 21,600 and the Taft candi
dates vot.-.s averaging 18,250
Settir.er aside the law of California,
the national committee arbitrarily
chose two of the three Roosevelt
delegates who lived In their district
and unseated them, and as arbitrar
ily chose two of the three Taft can
didates who tesided in the district
and seated tiiein. it will be seen that
the decision was based on neither
law nor fact, since It was In direct
repudiation of the law and had no
facts other than guess Work as to
the vote and arbitrary selection as
to the two Individuals.
Says Contests Law.
Tt will he seen that the contest was
not against the election of those
delegates, which was undented, hut
against the law Itself and the right
of the state to pass It
The law passed the mate legisla
ture by unanimous vote of both
houses, it was accepted by all
parties and factions. All candl
dates ran under Its provisions and
all the votes were cast under It No
attempt was made by lh" Taft tac
tion to conduct a primary In any
other manner, and no protest was
made against the law. In fact the
law was expressly accepted, In writ
