The Republican county convention which met here bad a majority of the dele gates pledged for President raft There were 102 delegates, fifty-two Instructed for the president, and fifty for Colonel Roosevelt. The chairman of the county cen tral committee, Mr. Longfley, a though an ardent Stubbs adherent has made frequent professions of ad herence to Taft and was elected on the delegation from Greenleaf town snip with that understanding. The Greenleaf caucus voted .for Taft, 16 to 7, and the Republicans of Green leaf expected their instructions would be carried out. Mr. Longley was therefore elected chairman of the county, convention, no fight being made on him by either side. A mo tion was then made, that the chair man of each delegation cast the vote of the delegation. This was carried and when Greenleaf' name was call ed to the great surprise of the Taft men, Mr. Longley cast three votes for Roosevelt and five for Taft. This reversed the majority and the meeting adjourned under a storm of protest.

A stenographic report of T, R.'s speech is: , "My friends and fellow citizens what has happened here when you contrast with what has been done In Jackson county 'gives the measure of difference in our attitude and the attitude of our opponents. In Jack son county the people on our side arranged to send delegates without an appeal to tbe people and that was over-ruled by our own people and primaries are to be held so that tbe people shall have the right to express their own choice. Where our opponents have held a "snap" con tention Is all because they think the friends that law, tbat any laws, we can devise will ever take the place of individual character. "You Kansans ars all of what you are because you have had the right kind j of type of average man and average woman character. The in dividual character must be the prime factor In winning success. But in addition to that you must have the right kind of laws of government to give that character fnll play. It Is Just as it was In the Civil war, the prime element in the soldier was the stuff that was In him. If he didn't have the right kind of stuff In him you couldn't get It out of him. be cause It wasn't there to get out, but In addition to that yon had to givej io -the work, won't give you the right man any more than the weapon will.- . .
