Roosevelt Leaders Map Out
Plan of Battle Covering
By Tntma.nona i News Bervlce
OHlOAlrp, June 18. -In a fonr hour
eonieronee with all of the Leaders of
his forces and his political advisers
early tonipht. ai th f'onci'ess hotel,
Theodore Booseyelf outlined clearly i.h
plan of hi? battle for tomorrow and
for tbe remaining days of the couTeu
tion. He will bolt i lie convention on
Thursday if ho has no! won hip right
by the time the Bret ballot is taken on
the presidential nomination,
Thie is the programme;
Tomorrow the credential? committee
will make its report, and tho big guns
of the lloosevelt. artillery will bo
trained acain?! that report.
It is assumed at the outset that tbe
report of tho credentials committee
will bo wholly aeainst tho IJoosovelt
faction. It. is agfumeil that the report
will uphold in every particular tho ac
tion of the national steamroller. It
is assumed that the credentials com
mittee will teat every delegate that
the national committee seated last
Roosevelt will demand vote imme
diately on that report and he will do
aiand that tho contested delegates be
prevented from voting on the credeu
tials committee report, holding that to
permit contested delegates to vote
would be tu let them act as jury in the
eases in which they are defendants.
Seventy-live, of the contest have
boon picked out as boiue especially
meritorious. They are cases in which
the seating of the Taft delegates was,
in the opinion of the Roosevelt men,
particularly outrageous. The center of
lire will be directed against those seventy-five
Roosevelt and bis managers have an
ticipated every step in. I bo figbt . They
know what they will do at every stage
of the battle, no matter which way
tho wind blows.
Tbev hope that they will be able to
prevent the contested delegates from
voting on their own cases.
Failing to do that, this will be tbe
next step in the battle.
Tbe Roosevelt forte-, will undertake,
aided by I he constant weakening of
the Taft lines, to unseat tho steam
roller delegates in spite of the vote
of those same delegates. They will
carry their figbl to the floor of Hie
convention, resisting every move of the
enemy, struggling for every possible

Taft will bo renominated for pres

convention. Theodore RoOMVelt

up and .idmtt that a Democrat cannot

The election of Ellhu Root, the pmy
old fox of the, pai-ty, as the temporary
chairman, tells the whole tale. Wht
vra.s put over today ran be put over to
morrow and the next day and so on In
definitely. The manikins i in complete control,
and any one must pause and make
s.rln.nn to that engine.
Nobody pretends to ay that Taft can
he elected. Nobody fieems to care a hang:
If lie Ik defe.ated. Tho men who sup
ported Root today supported him In or
der lo be nt the roloiie.l, and not be-
causs they have any love for Taft.
Confidence Is Lacking1.
rhr- feeling aiund the lobbies tonight
I re. t 'ne of exultation on the part of
the Taft supporters. Thoy act In the
s.'iiio (ga:y fashion that all of us did at
Reno when Johnson thrashed Jeffries.
Of course, the Rooaovc.lt people mo
mad clear through. AH their boasts.
their bluster, their devotional enthusi
asm has come bo nothing ah the parad
ing of Teddy np and down the land has
brought defeat. The rocket Is now tho
So the Roosevelters nre mooting and
gnashing their teeth and devising- ways
and means for making- the colonel an
opposition candidate. It has always been
a certainly that he would be nn opporl
tlon candidate In CMs of defeat.
Three Candidates Likely.
The Roosevelt leaders always have ex
PQi ld La Follette to be out as an Inde
pendent against the colonel In case tho
latter won the nomination; so "Ba.tt.ln
Bob" may be counted on a a third Re
publican candidate, making trouble all
along the line.
Rut for nil the preliminary talk of
force and fury and fisticuffs. It was a
doleful sort of convention today- No
body bo much ns let go a punch. There
was no effort to do anything by force
Tho platoon and battalions and regi
ments of police that were hold In rcadl
nesa might as well hac boen out on the
Montana mountains, so far as their serv
ice! were needed, though they were very
much In the way of themselves anil
California is "Sassy,"
California, through Governor Johmion
and Francis J. Hcney, was "Hasulcst"
und "scrappiest" Of all the states- But
"sass" and "scrap'' us they would, tho
votes of K. H Tryon and Morris Meyer
feld, Jr , tho two seated Taft dolegateu,
were counted for Root as they will
he counted for Tuft. The two men did
not It anywhere near their colleagues,
but were way back of the Arizona dele
gation. When their n&imts were called
at tbe tall of the California list they
were urged up to the front quhitly and
rhclr votes taken while Governor John
son was making a turmoil of protest.
Then the two slipped quietly out of the
convention hall ami were seen no more.
Johnson stormed and shouted and
threatened, but the vote was announced:
McGovern. 24; Root. 2; and there was no
way for the angry Capfornlans to ohangs
the result. Wow! but they aro a mail
denedi a revengeful lot. After the vote

Since the divorce ohtalnd by Mrs.
Cudahy from her hufhnnd two years as;o
Mr Gudahy has been living alone at
the Hotel Raltimore and on his farm
near Bolton. Mrs. Cudahy han heen liv
ing In ii n apartment at 3527 Main street
The children who were talcon from the
mother under tho divorce agreement
were given to tho parents of Mr. Cudahy
with whom thov have been since that
i Mr. Cudahy was at the apartment of
Mrs. Cudahy when a reporter culled there
this afternoon Both Mr and Mm. Cud
ahy said that their differences luid been
settled and th.it they hoped there would
he no further occasion for trouble.
Two years Ago a formal decree of
divorce was Istmed to tho Cudahy s fol
lowing the Ben national attack of tho hus
band upon Jere LIIHh, b. banker.
Iat week a rcc'.inclliutlon was effected
and the two returned to housekeeping In
the apartment occupied by Mrs. Cudahy
The second union Involves the church,
and follows the nge-old question of the
supremacy of the church or tho etate- Is
a canonical law greater than a law of
the government? In the Cudahy case it
has settled that what the church hnB
bound together no Jaw can break
The Cndahys went reunited on that
Idea. Catholics In religion and heredity,
they came to the belief that their inar
rlutre in the Catholic fuith was not brok
en bv the divorce decree two ycarB ago,
and thus they began their married lite
anew. , .
At the Cudahy home tonight few de
tails of the i ouutnn were given out. It
was admitted that the two had hogun
to tve together again and it was stated
that an sffectlvs reconciliation has been

LOS ANGELES, June 18. The Darrow
trial fcession ended this evenlnsr with an
open defiance of an order of the court
by Assistant District Attorney Ford.
Judge Hutton had just admonished
George Behm. uncle of Ortlo McMan!
gal, who was on the witness stand under
cross-examination by Darrow, not to talk
to anyone about the case until his ap
pearance in court tomorrow morning.
"To be fair to the court," said Fond.
"I want to Instruct Mr. Behm to be In
my office tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock
so that if I want to talk to him about
this testimony I will be able to do bo."
"Mr. Ford." began the court, "I have
admonished the witness."
"I do not recognize the power of the
oourt to prevent us from talking with
the witness as to his testimony and if
occasion arises I expect to do so."
Tho defouse had asked for the court's
Instruction to the witness, but had been
unable to produce any authority, finally
falling baok on the declaration that it
was a matter of common law, which Ford
Behm was subjocted to a rigid cross
examination by Darrow as to his own
dealings with him. Darrow succcedod In
tangling the witness concerning the tu
toring he alleged Darrow had given him
:iB to hlo testimony before the grand
jury last Auguut.
A letter written by Darrow to Bohm

Into ovideuce by District Attorney Fred

letter was written in regard to a dispute
of a claim Bohm had made for expenses
