" All talk of a-compromise candidate upon whom , the progressives and the Taft''maP could unite to heal the brfcachr in " the Republican party was shattered, today. The ,Taft leaders, after counting, noses, decided that they still hold the control. They ac cepted . the assurance - of William Barnes, Jr., that he had enough votes to elect Elihu Root temporary chair man. . Immediately they stiffened their ' lines arid ' prepared to present a united front. , ' Two conventions in the same hall seemed inevitable. The Roosevelt fighting men have decided to go through with their program. They insisted, today, t that they would go right ahead and nominate Roosevelt and- adopt a progressive platform. They declared they could do it in the face of the Taft delegates and they would protect themselves from "strong arm" methods. . . They will fight, they said, to take the convention away from the nation al committee. Victor Rosewater, chairman of the committee, who, un der the rules, calls the convention to order, has been in consultation with the Taft. men on the committee. He has instructed Colonel Bill Stone, th serpreant-at-arms, that he will expect protection in the. discharge of his duties. Stone has 'arranged for this. He declined, today, to discuss what he had done. - "This convention will be conduct ed so that the regular representatives of the Republican party in the na tional convention can carry . through their work," declared Stone. "Let those who wish make threats. All I wish to say is that the officers of this convention will be protected in carrying out the . duties with which they are charged.". It was learned, however, that Stone has secured what he considers ampla police protection. Through the ChU cago Citizens Committee he has had police officers detailed to obey his instructions and if an attempt is made to rush the platform, and on is anticipated, . then Stone will keep It ,,Vt.';:l.(.: .

The- Roosevelt Xorees are fighting the California., mfceup the greatest principle in the make-up or the convention; r ; ... -y : : - Chairman. .'Rosewater j is .expected, tonight,., to submit his answer to a question propounded by the Colonel himself. Rosewater. interrupted ' a ''cabinet session" of the'Rooseveltftes and had a long talk -with the Colonel' himself. The' gossip, today, 'was that Roosevelt told his unexpected gueBt a few warm thoughts ' about certain members of the national committee. - : Commenting on : the , California fight, Governor Johnson declared, to day, that. "California will not submit to .robbery" - of any of the . fruits of "Roosevelt s victory, there. , , . .. - "The . theft of two del estates select ed . by 77,000 ihajority - in a primary which Taft himself acquiesced was. so outrageous .as to. focus - attention on the state, - said Johnson. . Colonel . Roosevelt ; himself was the center of great activity today. 'Many delegations, were escorted to his , par- lors and had a word: privately . with him. rSo great was-" the jam in and near his rooms that the elevators were unable, to -care for the crowds and many visitors, had . to puff pantingly up and down the stairs. ..,.. . The-, early hours of the , day : were utilized by iRoosevelt - in meeting- the delegates rrom Massachusetts, 2 Jersey, Oklahoma and some from Il linois. . It seemed clear today that Colonel Roosevelt had exercised the recall-, on delegates-at-large from Massachusetts. When it was discov ered that President Taft had won out on the Presidential vote from the Bay State, the Colonel announced "that he would surrender the delegates-at-large who were at first -pledged "'. to Taft. Today ; it was stated that they would vote for Jtoosevelt despite, his utter ance. "1'a.m certain that the delegates-at- large from Massachusetts will vote for - Roosevelt in the convention," said Ma chew Hale. ' - The effect of the big Roosevelt rally to be held tonight is obviously feared by the Taft" leaders.' Big delegations of Roosevelt shouters are here from the West and-Southwest, they say.- It is insisted that the national conven tion was for . the ' people at large and that tickets were an outrage. First come, first served, was the motto and they found that many voters endorsed this view. ... All , that was needed today was the word of someone in authority. Roose velt followers . expect to find . some word in the. Roosevelt headquarters tonight that would justify them in de scending on 1;be hall in force. . ' Some went so far as to express the hope that Roosevelt himself ' would lead them. Just how Root was to be "put over" in the convention hall . was - not re vealed by Barnes and his men. It was stated, however, that assurance of such a part - for Root had been received. ' It was reported, shortly after noon, today, that the Virginia delegation, counted solid for Taft, at an execu tive session, today, had -voted unani mously against the selection of Sen ator Root for the temporary chair manship, also against permitting dele gates seated by the' national commit tee in contested cases to vote on their own places in affirming the tempor ary convention roll. The. stiffening up process to hold the Taft supporters firmly in line was the order- of the day around head quarters. . Tonight, Director McKin ley has arranged a conference of ail the President's delegates. Aside from the desire to keep the delegates away from the Roosevelt meeting, the plan is -to put through a pledge for ac ceptance by every delegate that he will stick to the President -through thick and thin. Taft managers, he asserted, have polled each delegation . from which desertions to Roosevelt were claimed and found only-two, Charles Banks, of Mississippi, and Timothy Wood ruff, of New York. An organized1 attempt was begun, today, to get the solid ' Texas delega tion for president Tatt. Today's meeting of the Texas dele LAST gation marked the passing '. of Cecil Lyon, It years national committeeman- from the Lone-Star state. He wras succeeded by H. F. MacGregor. Demand that Victor Rosewater, either change his attitude on the con gests or resign, was made by the Nebraska, delegation in an executive session, today. . When Chairman Rosewater rap3 for - order, tomorrow, - the Roosevelt lieutenants: will have already prepar ed a complete battle plan, a program mapped out in advance and threshed out at conference between all the generals of -,the Colonel's staff cover ing every possible contingency. A board of strategy, including George L. Johnson, . of California, labored with the program, today. Because there are so many angles to the fight it was determined to lay out . a battle plan which would embrace any . de velopment. The Colonel's leader.? will be drilled in this program so that they will be able to . understand just what to do when: the field mar shal of the forces, Governor Hadley, enters the fray. Chicago, June 17. That they will make the temp'orary roll prepared by the national committee the temporary rollof the convention was the word sent to , Colonel Roosevelt, today, by the majority of : that committee. The Colonel's demand, made directly to Chairman Victor ' Rosewater, last night,' that only those delegates whose credentials are undisputed should be permitted ' to vote on the question of organization was brusquely turned down-. After conferring with other members , of the committee, today, Rosewater decided to stick to. the original program. 'TJiis insures the5 fight "from the drop of the , hat" The temporary roll will. be challenged Immediately after the minister pronounces the onenin -benedictlon. ' Should the Taft. men be able. . by force of numbers, - to put through their original plans, a double cross is certain. Many leaders fear bloodshed and broken heads if the present, situation is , not; relieved by compromise. The Roosevelt men de clare the . temporary roll will never be read. The Taft leaders,' through Chairman Victor , Rosewater, say it will be read as prepared and they say if' force is attempted to prevent the ' contention proceeding in an or derly manner, that they will eall on the police to - eject -the "disturbers' from .the hall. - v- . "Justvlet .them t try It," was all that the Roosevelt men would say but the determination expressed In their der mtllhdatd that they weuld Wt Claims and rumors of desertions fromthe Taft cainp continued to fill the'- air, ; today. Lusty lunged mega phoney men, wearing flaming Roose velt . badges, passed back - and forth through' the crowds crying aloud the names of ' men who, they . said. had signed pledges repudiating the Presi dent rand 'declaring- for . Roosevelt. Some of these, were true. But in many .instances' the. claim of deser tion ; had no sooner been made than the - Taft - leaders .were out with de- hnials. .The big : delegation from King's County, N. T., has been the subject of much comment. Timothy "Wood ruff, ' in announcing- that he had burned- his -bridges behind him,- was now in the Roosevelt camn' insisting that 16 other; ; delegates . would, go over. with him.. To offset this, the Taft meir displayed signatures- of all but three- of . this county delegation insist ing that- . Woodruff - meant -only a single - vote and - that all the other members , were for Taft. . .- Insisting that they had their dele gates so firmly. fixed that only a scat tering, few; would desert, the Taft leaders were1 admittedly worried. They - feared the. effect of - Colonel Roosevelt's personality on - wavering delegates; who .wanted , to be with the winner no matter who he might be Whenever, the Taft leaders heard of one of their men passing under the Roosevelt: influence--and they main tained a secret service that would have done- Scotland 'Yard credit a Taft man close "to the particular dele gate was sent to get in touch with, him and find out If he was still "all right." , ... . The Taft margin,' sbfar as the con trol of the convention and the votes for the renomination are concerned, is , uncomfortably close. The defec tion.. of a score of delegates would undoubtedly deadlock the convention. Even the President's warmest admir ers admit that he must .be .nominat ed on the initial .ballot . .or not at all. The Roosevelt,. Cummins and La Follette camps will vote . as . a unit against- the Taft forces on many, of the things that will come up in con nection with the temporary organiza tion. And in order to retain control throughout the convention, the Taft men 1 must hold the reins from the very start. The private figures of the Taft leaders, in which allowances were made for both the known . desertions announced by the Roosevelt forces and the ones believed to be sure, but which have not yet been -publicly ad mitted, showed the president with 55S delegates, 18 more than a. majority, today. 1 Manager McKinley's " public claim is 590. This includes every sin gle member placed on the temporary roll by the national committee and nearly all" of the uninstructed dele gates, luvery rrart leaaer or conse quence was directed to try . to round up. at least- one vote for Elihu Root for temporary chairman. If they can' get Root in the chair, the Taft men feel safe as they claim absolute con trol of the credentials committee which will make up the permanent roll. . . , The Taft leaders plan to make the temporary roll permanent "and have the committee on permanent . organi zation continue the .temporary organ ization," including Root as chairman. as the permanent organization. The committee on "-credentials will be made oip of 33 Taft men to 20 Roosevelt men, the Taft leaders say. - xne Kooseveit men admit these fle:- ures will be approximately correct should the contested delegations from the various states be seated by their own votes. On this lineup, the committee, made up from one member from each state, will be as follows: Taft Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut.
