Br JUSTIN McGItATlL
Chicago, June 20. The close of the third day of the Republican
National Convention left the old organization in absolute control of the
situation. So far, at least, as this convention is concerned, Roosevelt
is politically dead. The only work left to the old organization is to
see that he is properly embalmed, and to see also that the mourners are
comforted.
Already the grief of the devoted political family of Col. Roose
velt is being assuaged, and it is the expectation of the Taft managers
that by to-morrow night they will be completely reconciled to the loss
of the dear departed. N
To-morrow will be given up to
the credentials committee this by
Roosevelt leaders are being solaced. It is the confident belief of the
Taft managers that by Saturday morning the stricken Rooseveltian
supporters who last night, in their great grief, were declaring that
they would jump into his political grave, will be able to "sit up and
take notice."
T. It. 310' WIIiI, NOT STICK.
Already some of them are beginning to cast eyes at new political
favorites for the nomination to head the ticket Early this afternoon
the Roosevelt leaders adopted a resolution to have their forces sit
silent in the convention, refusing to vote upon the report of the com
mittee on credentials in case the report should be unfavorable to their
claims, but time is a great healer, even of political griefs; in fact,
it takes very much less time to heal
a ereat political wound than it does so Saturday night, even though the

the Roosevelt leaders earlier in tne oay.

which came before the convenUon. In

Illinois to Star In Convention.
The Illinois delegation, at a meeting
late this afternoon, decided by a vote of
fifty-six to two to participate In the
proceedings of the convention. The dele
gaUon from Idaho has also decided to
abide by the decision of the contention.
Oklahoma Is said to be ready to turn
from Roosevelt for any nominee the ma
jority of the convention may agree upon,
and while Boss Flinn. of Pennsylvania, Is
still beating the air in uncontrollable an
ger, his delegates are taking a much
more philosophical view of the situation.
The California delegation and a part of
the Pennsylvania, therefore, are the only
part of CoL Roosevelt's valiant army
willing to go to the last political ditch
with the rough'rider. The general opin
ion is there will be no bolt, as the only
bolters are the colonel. "Boss" Fllnn,
and Gov Johnson.
When CoL Roosevelt issued his state
ment this afternoon setting forth his
poslUon. a number of messenger boys
were hired to distribute printed copies of
It In the hotel rotundas.
'But jesterday our noble chieftain de
fled the world, and now he has been re
duced to the low position of a pam
phleteer. ' was the sarcastic comment of
one of the Taft leaders, who witnessed
the distribution of the Roosevelt pam
phlets in the rotunda of the Congress
HoteL
Hopeful of Harmony.
The old organization leaders are in high
feather to-night. They have not only
put CoL Roosevelt out of the running,
but they are now hopeful, almost confi
dent, that before the convection ends
they can bring'about a show of harmony
which will leave CoL Roosevelt a prao
Ileal monopoly of the dissatisfaction over
the convenUon s action.
This means, of course, that they are
of the belief that Taft can be eliminated
as well as Roosevelt. When the proper
time comes they will propose to Mr. Taft
that he carefully consider whether or
not he wishes bis name to go before the
convention. Their desire Is to have Mr.
Taft withdraw of his own volition In the
Interest of party harmony.
If he can be persuaded to see his duty
in this light, then they also believe that
he will release Supreme Ccurt Justice
Hughes from the pledge which Justice
Hughes gave him at the time of his
appointment that he would not be a can
didate for the Republican nomination.
If Mr Taft decides upon this course,
Hughes Is almost certain to be the nom

Long Statement Makes Clear, to

Chicago, June 3). Col Roosevelt Issued
the following complete statement this
afternoon:
"The time has come when I feel that
I must make certain statements, not
merely to the honestly elected members
of the Republican XaUonal Convention,
but to the rank and file of the party and
the honest people of the entire nation.
I went Into this strife for certain great
principles. At the moment, I have to
bear the personal responsibility which
their advocacy has brought to me.
"On behalf of these principles I made
my appeals straight to the people them
selves. I went before them. I made my
arguments In full, and every one I made
was In the open, without concealment
of any kind. The opposlUon to me was
extraordinarily bitter, for I was opposed

which are controlled by or conducted In
the interest of the bosses and special
privileges.

"Nevertheless, in the appeal to the
people I won. In many of the Republi
can States, and of the Democratic
where there Is a large and real Repub
lican party, primaries of different kinds
were held, and ,a substantial expres
sion of the will of the people was ob
tained. In these primary States some
3.000.000 voters, the rank and file of
the Republican party cast their votes;
I beat Mr. Taft considerably over 2 to
1. In these States I obtained six dele
gates to Mr. Tart's one, nearly three
fourths of my delegates came from the
primary States where the people had
a chance to express themselves.
"Mr. Taft's strength, as Indicated by
the two roll calls, already taken, con

Committee on Credentials
Gets Out the Steam Roller
Chicago, June SB. Working on the the
ory that CoL Roosevelt Is a dead candi
date for the regular Republican nomina
tion for President, the Taft members of
the credentials committee of the National
Committee insisted upon running the
steam roller over the corpse.
Wednesday night twelve Roosevelt mem
bers of that committee bolted because
they claimed they were denied free, full.
and open hearlqgs of all contests for seats
in the convention.
To-night the Roosevelt members who re
mained, and the bolters who came
back were almost ready to secede again
because fail. free. 'and open hearings" were,
forced upon them.
The Taft men had taken the Ud off tor
time, new evidence, and everything else.
And after the committee had spent seven
and a half hours to-day mulling over two
cases involving a total of eight seats two
for the Ninth District of Alabama and six
for Arizona at large the Roosevelt men
offered to abandon all the remaining con-1
lesia except tnose lor California. Texas,
and Washington, a total of forty-two
seats.
Taft Gets Thirty-six.
The Taft members refused emphatical
ly to consider that proposition. They
held that all cases must be heard at
length, and proceeded to the hearings.
And they are going to go right through
to the end, no matter how long It
takes.
At midnight the following cases had
been disposed of-
Taft delegates seated for the Ninth
Alabama District. 2.
Taft delegates seated for Arizona. &
Taft delegates seated for Arkansas, 16.
Taft delegates seated for Florida, IS.
Following Arkansas the Fourth Cali
fornia District was called, but neither
Gov Johnson nor Francis J. Heney
who have accused the Taft men of steal
ing this district, put In an appearance.
so the sergeant-at-arms was directed to
find them While the Hunt for Johnson
and Heney was on the Florida contest
was taken up and settled. Georgia .foi

Slaking election Mnterlnl.
The purpose of the Taft men Is to
give themselves a clean bill of health
in all the contest cases. They are work
ing against Col. Roosevelt, as they re
gard him not as.-a candidate for the Re
publican nomlnaUon for President, but
as an Independent candidate for Presi
dent. They are making election and not
convention campaign material.
"They Insisted that the credentials
committee is a court of original Juris
diction In contest cases," said former
Senator James E. Hemenwjy, the Taft
leader, "and we have taken them at
their word. We are going to 'make them
bear all these cases or make them aban
don them in open court."
After seven and a half hours on the
Alabama and Arizona cases, Sullivan of
Ohio. Taft man. complained because
Chairman Devine had not enforced the
semblance of a time limit In rule four.
"We agree unanimously that the chair
man has been too liberal with us," said

decided that they will sit in continuous
session until all the cases are disposed
of. That may take twenty-four, thirty'
six. or seventy-two hours, but they do
not care. Also It may keep the conven
tion In session until Tuesday of next
week, but they do not care for that
either.

"We Insist upon .proving our right to
every'seat we claim." said former Senator
Charles Dick, the Taft lawrer-ai-larm.
To facilitate matters, though, the Taft
men propose that when -taa convenUon
meets at noon to-morrow they will make
a partial report to let the convention
take un the cases one at a Ume also.
and thereby get both mills to grinding
simultaneously. There was a suggestion
to-night of an adjournment for dinner,
but the Taft men said "No." The sergeant-at-arms
was sent out for sand
wiches and coffee, and the roller rolled
on.
A atralficant thlnar about the bearings
Is that Ormsby McHarg. the Roosevelt
lawyer, has, like 'Heney, "bolted" the
contests for good. He Is not appearing
In the hearings, but Is letting each State
make Its own flght-
Also It is significant of the twelve mem
bers who bolted. Carrlngton. of Mary
land, and Way. of South Dakota, were
back to-day. That Is taken to mean
that even should CoL Roosevelt' change
his mind again and try to pull off a bolt,
the delegates from the States whose
representatives stuck In, the credentials
committee, win rexuse to tuuow mm. in

In the Ninth Alabama case, although
three hours was spent on It. no new facts

The vote was thirty-three to fourteen.

that Roosevelt would bolt.

Proposition for Compromise from the T. R.

By STAFF CORRESPONDENT.
Chicago, June 20. President Taft continues in absolute control of
the situation in Chicago. The convention made no progress to-day
because it is the desire of the President that fullest opportunity shall
be afforded in the committee on credentials to disprove the charges of
Mr. Roosevelt that the Taft delegates are not entitled to their seats.
As the committee on credentials was not ready to report the convention
met twice to-day, but immediately adjourned.
Mr. Roosevelt's threat to bolt has been a flash in the pan. As
a defeated candidate for the Presidency he cannot find a following. It
was known last night that Illinois and Missouri would not follow him
in his desertion from the Republican party. To-day notice has been
served upon him by the leaders of other State delegations that they
represent the Republican organization and cannot be counted as a
part of any third party movement. In Maryland, for instance, Gist
Blair says that the Republican delegates were elected under a State
law to represent the Republican
party and as State officers they are
bound to remain with the conven
tion until it adjourns,
Only one delegate In Indiana will fol

few delegates will follow Fllnn; while
iu Orecon. West Virginia, Kansas. South
Dakota, and other States there is no de

This Is the reason why Mr. Roosevelt
this afternoon Issued a statement, de
claring that he would accept a nomlna'
tlon as a progressive candidate, even If
he did not get a single eieciorai vote.
He knows that as long as he seems to
have a chance to win he commanded

now that It Is certain that he cannot
h named. There la hardly a delegate
now In the convenUon who win admit
that Mr. Rooseve.lt has the slightest
chance of the nomination.
Taft Men Stand Tat.
This being the case, the last resort of
of the President the assertion that Mr.
Taft cannot be elected if nominated
This Is the origin of the Hadiey and
Cummins talk which has filled the cor
ridors to-day. It has not affected the
Taft men because they know that they
have an ample majority of the conven
Uon, and there Is no reason why they
should desert the President, especially
after they have .come, here determined
to nominate him, and have stood firm
against all the villiflcatlon which has
been so unjustly directed against them
by the Roosevelt managers Mr Barnes,
of New York, voiced the sentiment of
the Taft people to-day when he said
that the New York delegation had come
here to nominate Mr. Taft. believing tnat
any other selecUon would be fatal to
the party, and now that Mr. Taft's con
trol of the convention nas Deen aemun
strated. It would be absurd to desert
him. He predicted Mr Taft's nomina
tion on the first ballot, and added that
the President would be stronger every
day urrtll the election occurred.
Still In the Saddle.
Analysis of yesterday's vote proved
conclusively that the President has a
clear majority. On the nominating bal
lot, as compared with the vote yesterday,
ha will lose five in Illinois, "even in
Man-land, two In North Dakota, and five
In Oregon, a total of nineteen. He will

more than a majority This Is an ample

Promise n Surprise.
When the committee on credenUals re
ports to-morrow In favor of seating th.e
two delegates from the Ninth Alabama
district an unpleasant surprise ks In
store for the Roosevelt forces. The en
tire twenty-six votes of the Wisconsin
delegation will be cast for the Taft dele-
Kates, not because the La Follette men
want to help Taft. but because their
national committeeman. Mr. Rogers,
voted In the NaUonal Committee to seat
these delegates, and has assured the dele
gation that he voted honestly upon the
merits of the case. They have, therefore.
decided to sustain their national com
mitteeman, and this means that the vote
upon the Alabama case will be over
whelmingly In Taffs favor. This vote
will be also an answer to the charges of
theft and robbery which Mr. Roosevelt
has so emphatically made.
Mr. Roosevelt. It is now evident, made
a -tactical blunder when he made his
appearance In Chicago as long ago as
last Saturday. He has shot his ooit.
More than this bis actions since he has
