BEVERLY lS~ UPSET BY COLONEL'S DEFEAT President Taft Has Nothing to Say on Outcome in New York. (Ily Assoelateti Press) liKV'I-'Kl.Y. MASS., Aug. If. - Rev? el ly ?as completel?/ upset tonight j ?hen news tame tram New York of I the defeat of Colonel Theodore Rot??.? velt for temporary chairman of the New York Republican suite conven? tion. The fact that I.loyd C Grls roin. chairman of the New Y'ork coun? ty convention, had boea in confer? ence with Mr. Taft Sunday, added to the sensation that the despatch created. Secretary Norton carried the news to the President. Mr. Taft made no comment for publication. There is nothing here to indicate that he knew of Mr. Griscotn's plan to force s vote on Mr. Roosevelt's name. So Jar as can be learned. Mr. Grit eoni's talk with the President had to do solely with the general situation in New York state and Mr. Taft tool; the ground that harmony ought to be brought about if possible before the Saratoga convention meets. The secretary said Mr. Griscom took h message to Col.mi 1 Roosevelt which would ?ffet: the future relations be iween Mr. Roosevelt and the Presi? dent is distTiafJu i| in Heverly. Mr. Taft has assumed the attitude thtt any overtures, if they be necessary,i mus; come "from she other side.' j What effect today's developmentr] it New Y'ork may have upon the re-j organization plan fl??t has been in pr?u*r. aa hare taaal of course, for ?a| time remain a matter of ctinje. rnre. So far as OBB Be learned there is a| ? disiiosition in i. to "Stand pat" | ?he plans a- antr\-iced. Senator W.l l Muray Cane, of Massachusetts, thej .?entrai Harun? in the re-organization j i plans, was hare late this arfernooni and spent two hours with the Presi? dent. The Senator was retir iont as I ever. He would not talk ?bout bis' visit to the President. REFUSES?!?* WITH MAYOR'S REQUEST Situation Over Columbus!
