William Howard Taft was "renominated for President of the United States by the Republican National Convention at 9:25 o'clock to-nightv Less than an hour later James Schoolcraft Sherman was renominated for the Vice Presidency. The nominations were made on the first ballot. Senator La Follette's name was the onIyname presented to the convention for the Presidential nomination besides that of Taft, Sherman's was the only name presented for the Vice Presidency. A motion made to make his nomination unanimous was objected to and a roll call ordered. The vote for the Presidential nomination was: Taft, 561; Roosevelt, 107; La Follette, 41; Cummins, 17; Hughes, 2. Present and not voting, 348; absent, 2. The vote on the Vice Presidential nomination was: Sherman; 597; Borah, 21; Merriam, 20; Hadley, 14; Beveridge, 2; Gillette, 1. Absent, 71; not voting, 352. CONVENTION ADJ0UBNS AT 10:29 P. M. The convention adjourned at 10:29 p. m.- , There were two excitinc features of the long session, which began at 10' in the morning and continued till nearly midnight lwo hours before the nomination of iaft,. the personal boom ot Ineodore Koosevelt gave its last expiring gasp in a twenty-five minutes' demonstration. Roosevelt- hung to his delegates, who had already planned to gather with him in the new mass meeting in Orchestra Hall. Idaho alone, of the Roosevelt men, fell away from him, seven of Senator Borah s constituents voting for Cummins. The expected Hadley boom never raised a whisper. Cummins was not nominated, and the passing tribute of a cheer from Barnes was the only greeting that came to the two v tes for Hughes from Pennsylvania. ' When ft was all over and Sherman had been nominated in a gallop, Penrose looked at "Crane and Crane looked at Root and they all three looked at each other. They had driven Roosevelt out of the party. As for the Taft delegates, tired, disheveled, utterly disgusted, without even a word for their can didate, they began streaming to their hotels and then to their trains, the sickest lot of Republicans that ever gathered together in convention. NEAR EI0T TAKES PLACE. The second incident was a near-riot in the Massachusetts delegation precipitated by. Root when, during the roll call he began to get nervous about the count. When the- delegates from the Codfish State, their minds made up to have no hand in the matter, refused to vote when their names were called, Root ordered that the names of the alternates be called. He knew that he would pick up a few Taft delegates in that way and just then he fancied he might need them. As soon as this order was issued Delegate Fosdyke, a gray bearded man who looks like James G. Blaine, arose and shouted: "Massachusetts is a. law abiding State,and you, hadtbetter not attempt that kind of robbery." BULES VOTES' MUST BE CAST. After the yells and cheers that greeted this defiance had subsided, Root strode to the edge of the platform, a couple of husky secretaries beside him to prevent trouble, and said: "If a delegate to this convention refuses to do his duty by casting his vote his alternate must do it for him. The names of the alternates will be called." When he walked back he said to the secretary: "Send the police to that aisle." The police went there, thirty of them. The Massachusetts men were in the exact center of the building, standing on their chairs, shaking their fists, hissing and hurling execrations at the chairman, who had retired to his desk. Presently they quieted down and voted. They lost four votes, but they gained one point of more importance. Root never again during the roll call insisted on the call of alternates. Once or twice they were called, but they never voted against their principals' desires. RENOMINATED FOR VICE-PRESIDENT OF Roosevelt Is Nominated By Progressive Party Automobile Races at Laurel.

The third party la here. An hour after William Howard Taft had been renominated by the Republi can National Convention to-night, Theo dore Roosevelt was the nominee of the National Progressives, assembled In Orchestra Hall. A little later he had accepted the nomination and had asked those who as sisted In launching the new movement to convene again In six weeks and ratify their Indorsement of his candidacy. The fight was on. It was Roosevelt's answer to tue bosses. Assembled In Orchestra Hall were the delegates who had been Instructed to come to the Republican National Con' venUon and nominate Roosevelt. With them were the contestants whose cases had been thrown out by tbe National Committee. They were determined, enthusiastic. and- they were flanked by a great gath ering oi Kooseveit supporters a snout ing, cheering, singing, screaming, de fiant crowd that could say but one thing. We want Teddy." Hadley and Others Missing. It was a simple ceremony, but most significant when viewed In Its relation to the country's affairs. A resolution was passed nominating Roosevelt. He spoke In reply accepting It. The proceeding was marked by wild enthusiasm. The party was born. Gov. Hadley of Missouri. Gov. Deneen ot Illinois, Gov. Stubbs of Kansas. Senator William E. Borah of Idaho, and Senator William Briatbw of Kansas were conspicuous for their absence, but the crowd cared noth ing. It gave neither thought nor heed to them. The people in the hall men and women, alike felt they were able to make the fight themselves and they were content. And when tne nominating resolution had passed and CoL Roosevelt had ttken the platform. It seemed as If human strength and human voices could do no more. They showed It when Roosevelt said. "I accept the nomination." Fandemonlum is a mud term lor the demonstration that followed. We Want Teddy." "wnen Roosevelt said: "Go home and find out the. sentiment of tbe people." be was greeted with a about of "we know It." Then, like the beat of a great hammer. $UZ3 Baltimore and Retura.

"I think you do." said Roosevelt, "but I want to be dead sure." While the regular convention was nam ing William Howard Taft as the' reg ular Republican candidate the extremists In the Roosevelt following and those del egates to whom seats In the National Convention had been refused, met in Or chestra Hall and outlined their position In a "declaration" which repeats tne cry of "fraud"" and robbery which Col. I Roosevelt himself started, and claimed (that thty alone represented the will of the majority of the Republican parly. Here is their "declaration": Xevr Party Declaration. "We, delegates and alternates to the Republican National Convention, repre senting a clear majority of the voters of the Republican party In the nation, and representing a clear majority of the delegates and alternates legally elected to the convention. In meeting assembled. make tne following declaration: W'. were delegated by a majority of the Republican voters of our respective districts and States to nominate Theo dore Roosevelt in the Republican Na tlonal ConvenUon as the candidate of our party for President, and thereby carry out the win of tne voters as ex pressed at the primaries. We have earn estly and consclenuocsly striven to exe cute the commission Intrusted to us by the party voters, "For five dsyg we have been denied Justice In the National ConvenUon. This result probable accomplished by the ac tion of the now defunct National Com mittee In placing upon the preliminary roll of the convenUon. and thereby seat ing upon the floor of the convenUon. a sufficient number of fraudulently elected delegates to control the proceedings of the convenUon. These fraudulent dele gates, once seated, have by concerted ac tion with one another put themselves upon the permanent roll, where they con sUtute an Influence sufficient to control the convention and defeat the will of the party as expressed at the primaries. Tried to Head OS Conspiracy. "We have exhausted every known means to head off this conspiracy, and to prevent this fraud upon the popular will, but without success.. "Ve were sent to this convenUon besr ing the most .specific Instructions to. place Theodore Roosevelt In nomlnaUon as the candidate of our party for President. Summer Tanra. via B. A O, Tt. R.

If contemplating a rail or water trip for pleasure, or on business, consult agents at lith St- & N. T. Ave, or 613 Penn sylvania Ave. They will help you. and we therefore deem It to be our duty to carry out those Instructions In the enly practically feasible way remaining open to us. "Therefore, be It resolved, Tha"t we representing the majority of the voters of the Republican party, and of the dele gates and alternates legally elected to the National Republican Convention. In compliance with our Instructions from tho party voters, hereby nominate Theo dore Roosevelt as the candidate ot our party for the offlce of President of the United States; and we call upon him to accept such nomination In compliance with the will of the party voters. "And. be It further resolved. That a committee be appointed by the cha r to forthwith notify CoL Roosevelt of the action here taken, and request him to appear before us in this haU as soon as convenient Only One Condition. In accepting the nomination CoL Roosevelt said: "Gentlemen I thank you for your nomination, and In you I recognize the lawfully elected delegates" to the Re publican convention who represent the overwhelming majority of the voters who took part In the Republican pri maries prior to the convention, and who represent the wish of the major ity of lawfully elected members ot the convention. I accept the nomination subject to but one condition. "This has now become a contest which cannot be settled merely along tbe old party lines. The principles that are at stake are as broad and as deep as the foundations of our democracy Itself. They are In no sense sectional. They should appeal to all honest citizens. East and West. North and South, they should ap peal to all right-thinking men. whether Republicans or Democrats, without re gard to their previous party affiliations. I feel that the time has come when not only all men who believe In progressive principles, but all men who belle In those elementary maxims of public and private morality which must underly every form of successful free government, should Join one movement Therefore, I ask you to go to your several homes to find out the sentiment of the people at home and then again to come together, I suggest by mass convention, to nomi nate for the Presidency a progressive candidate on a progressive platform, a candidate and a platform that will enable us to appeal to Northerner and Southern Continued on Pnjre Five.
