ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 1912, FUSIOD REIGIIS RESUL Tine from MISSOUR DECISION Taft Men Blame Secretary Nagel for Abandoning Field at Crucial Moment and Faih ing to Present Case, TODAY'S RESULTS MAY BE DECISIVE President's Friends' Regard Compromise as of No Par ' ticular Significance and Claim Control of Convention. . ,Br Morning Journal Special ImMI Wlre.1 Chicago, June 13. The Missouri compromise decision and the unex pected adjournment of the republican national committee early this after noon, brought about a situation full of uncertainty and conflicting rumors which lasted throughout the evening and refused to crystallize Into definite form. Explanations traversed a long and varied scale all the way from the statement that the compromise and sudden adjournment presaged a gen eral getting together of the Taft and Koosevelt factions, to the naive the ory that It was to give the convention carpenters a chance to finish their sawing and hammering in the neigh borhood of the committee room. The explanation which best fits 'ho known facts is that the Taft support ers were glad to take advantage of the three or four hours of time Baved by the compromise on the Missouri cases to take account of stock and prepare for the big struggle over the Texas and Washington contents. Roosevelt supporters appeared great ly elated over the outcome and said the outcome of the whole Missouri business had exceeded their expecta tions. The Taft people on the other hand, seemed to take the outcome complacently and abated none of their claims on that account. National Committeeman Nagel, of Missouri, who left Chicago yesterday on the eve of the Missouri contest hearing, at which he hi'd been count ed on to be present,- came In for con siderable criticism when the commu te action marked the first import ant concession of the fight to Roose velt, j Taft men on the committee, while mute for publication, said, privately that Mr. Nugel's departure from Chi cago had much to do with the agree ment In the Missouri case. The cabinet official had been press ed to present the Taft side of the con troversy but hud expressed a desire to be excused. Several members of the committee had been confident that Mr. Nagel would argue the cose. Late last night when it was known that th secretary had left town, some of the Taft men on (he committee de cided to stand by the Hadley-Roose-velt delegates. Today absolutely no one appeared to challenge Governor Had ley's presentation of the case and the Taft leaders suid there was noth ing for them to do but surrender. There were many, however, who In sisted that Secretary Nagel's depart ure had nothing to dq with the result of the contest and that the national committee displayed entire fairness in its decision. Governor Hudlev In a statement snid the committee had acted fairly. Any way, the subject was the topic of end less discussion by both factions to nlKht. As a result of today's develop ments. Interest in tomorrow's sepsion cf the national committee w?s quick ened. A fight prpmises to center about con- iei involving delegates from lexas, where the political life of Cecil Lyon, national committeeman and the irength of the Roosevelt machine in the stute, is at stake. ine Koosevelt managers saH ro compromise would be conside.-ef will regard to Texas. The Taft munnsers aid they would fight for all the con tested delegations on the ground that ne i.von organisation hud chosen its delegates In defiance of the dixit let apportionment plan of the republican national committee. Rumors of compromise and conces- ions in the remaining content tights wTe denied on both sides. It U ex pected that the Virginia sontests in which the Roosevelt forces charge tnst the Taft conventions were held where negroes could not attend, will consolidated, but OrmBby Mcllarg, the Roosevelt contest manager, said tonight that they would argue each of the Texas contest cases separately "d that Roosevelt would get at leat thirty of the Texas delegates. Roosevelt leaders ssld tonight that Senator Borah would be their candi date for temporary chairman to op e Senator Elthu Root on the floor f ths convention. After a series of conferences at the Ja't headquarters tonight In which natora Penrose and Crane.

Secretary of Commerce Nagel, republican national committeeman from Missouri, to night declined to comment on today's decisions of tho national committee f by which Roosevelt was awarded Mis souri's rour delegates at large una four district delegates. ' Secretary Nagel represented Presi dent Taft at a conference the night before the Missouri convention In structed the delegates at largo for Roosevelt Asked why he did not oc cupy his seat In the national commit tee during the hearing of the Missouri "contest, Secretary Nagel said: "I have not taken part in any of the contests because I do not think it would be well for me, a member of the president's cabinet, to participate in a contest." KOOSEVELT MAY GO TO CHICAGO CONVENTION. Oyster Bay, N. Y., June 13. After talking by telephone with Senator Dixon for several hours tonight. Colonel Roosevelt said he might go to Chicago. His final decision remains in abeyance. Colonel Roosevelt said the delegates who were supporting him were indig nant at the trend of affairs in Chicago. He was told tonight that they regard ed the situation as being "a cynically open attempt on the part of the na tional committee to defraud the peo ple of the victory they have won." It was the Intention of the national committee, the colonel continued, to tiominate for president the man who had been repudiated by the rank and file of the republican party. The re sult, as Colonel Roosevelt put it, has been an intense feeling leading to a strong demand from the Roosevelt delegates, especially those from west- em states, that he go to Chicago. The colonel explained that he had been told that his supporters wlwheJ his presence, not because be Is a can didate, but because they regarded him as the man who happened to be lead ing the fight for the people. Colonel Roosevelt will go to New York in the morning. Whether he will leave for Chicago later in the day or return to Oyster Ray tomor row nlt;ht, could not be learned. "I do not know what I shall do," he declared. "It depends upon what I learn in the morning." The colonel said that although he had been urged to give a definite answer tonight to the appeal from Chicago, he had replied liiat he wisher to hear in full the reasons of those who urged him to go to the con vention city before deciding. The Roosevelt house on Sagamore Hill was ablaze with lights until fur Into the night. Messages by telegraph find telephone came in large numoers I1 evening. In the afternoon he said he would have a statement to make at t o'clock. When that hour came, he said ho would have no statement until 8 o'clock.

Darrow is being tried was almost completely lost Bight of at today's session of the trial In the effort ot the prosecution to show that Mrs. David Caplan was one of the Mc Namara witnesses whom Darrow hud conspired corruptly to prevent from testifying through Anton Johannsen and Olaf A, Tveltmoe, labor leaders of San Francisco. There was a marked difference In how the opposing sides view the al leged spiriting away from San Fran cisco of the wife and children of one of the men indicted with the Mc Xamuras for the blowing up of the Times building. As seen by the prosecution, Mrs. Caplan was a material witness for the prosecution in the McNamara case who had been surreptitiously taken first to an isolated mountain retreat some distance from San Fran cisco and later by automobile to Reno, Nev., accompanied by Johann sen. As nlctured by the defense. It was a woman tolling in midsummer in a San Francisco sweat shop to support her little children, harassed by pri vate detectives until she had appealed twice to the chief of police for pro tectlon; finally, "hounded out of her position and then taken In churge by friends. The strongest points made by the defense, however. It is claimed, are that Mrs. Caplan, on the wifo of a co- defendant, could not have eeu a wit ness In the McNamara case; -that If she could have been viewed as a com petent witness her t.ervices were never required, and that the time of the oc currence was two months prior to the beginning of the trial of James Jl McNamara. The defense made strong objections to the testimony of Malcolm Loughead, the chauffeur, who said on the stand today that ho had been hired by Oluf A. Tvoitmoe to take Mrs. Caplan from San Francisco to Keno. The defense contended that no con nection could be bl own between the defendant and those who had assisted In taking Mrs. Caplan out ot the stute. Judge Hutton had indicated that he would rule in favor of the contention of the defense, but a statement by Attorney Rogers mat Johannsen and Tveltmoe were interested in the Mc Namara defense was declared by the court as sufficient grounds for the admistlon of ths testimony. Rogers offered tc put Johannsen, then present In the court room, on the stand and also to produce Tvelt moe, who he said was is the city to combat the avow.il of the prosecution, but the court would not allow It.

Startling charges of an intrigue against Major General Leonard Wood, chief of stuff of the army, begun by the late Sen ator Marcus A. Hanna and kept ullve by his friends and a number of sen ators, attended the adoption by the house today of the army appropria tion bill conference report. Reference to a western senator whose son-in-law, Brigadier Gen eral Pershing, would be one of the first officers In line for General Wood's office if President Taft signs the bill, which deposes the chief of staff; allusions to Major Uenural Charles F. Humphrey, as "the agent for the powder trust;" and to Sena tor Dupont's connection . with the powder business, furnished other In cidents In a stormy afternoon. In spite of a vain fight, led by Rep resentatives Prince, Cooper and Mar tin, the house adopted the report which had been approved by Its con ferees and accepted by the senate, and. If President Taft signs the bill, aa It Is said he will. General Wood will be removed from his oftlce on March 4, 1913, and the future of many army poBts, which the war de partment has characterized aa use less, will be left to a commission. Representative Prince characterised the report as an insult to the army, the house and the country. In the debate Representative Cooper brought In the name of Senator Hanna. . "In all my public career," Mr, Cooper said, "I know of no officer who has been so mlsreprvstnted and maligned as General Wood. 1 was told on the best authority that when General Wood was In charge in Cuba, a certain senator asked him what he proposed to do about Major llath bone. director of posts of Cuba, then Involved In the postal frauds." "Senator." responaed General Wood, "I Intend to prosecute him." "Do that Wood," replied the B;n ator, "and I'll see t it that you never rise higher than captain la the scr vice." "Since that time." said Mr. Cooper, "that senator ar.d his powerful friends have hounded him. The Interchange which followed brought In the name ot Senator Hunna. Representative Martin, of Colo rado, followed with an attack on one of the senate conlerees and pointou out that some of the army post" which the army approonalion. bill would abolish was Fort IV A. Russell, of Wyoming. He referred to Gen eral Pershing and his rupli rise In the army. The general U u oii-'n-law of Senator Warren, of Wyoming, former chairman of tho sunutu mili tary committee and one of the con ferees on the bill. "Undoubtedly there are gentlemen whoso condition would be improved ' General Wood were legislated out cf offtae," shouted Mr. Martin. "Mn in the army who are aon-ln-lu-vs ! legislators and who have been al lowed to Jump 700 numbers over the heads of other officers, to a brlgmller generalship, would have a better chance of promotion if a man of General Wood's type were dis- qualltted." He referred to General wooa as the best man in the American army today. In the names of tne committee oi retired army officers which would dismiss of the army posts was that of General Humphrey and Mr. Mar tin asked if the general had advised the houso conferees. Chairman Hay of the military affairs committee said he had. "Well." retorted Mr. Martin. "Gen eral Humphrey la tho agent for the powder trust." Representative cooper mierrupieu to ask if Senator Dupont had Hoi been one of the senate conferees on the bill. Chairman ,Hay r plied that the sen ator repeatedly ban declared that he had severed his connection wun m Dupont Powiier Company when ne entered public life.

Chiejivo. June 13. Events of the day gave the Roosevelt leaders helr first real cause for surrace juuimium and they were not slow to take aa Vantage of it. While the national committee was disposing of the Missouri contests, Roosevelt delegates In Chicago were iiaaembled In the Congress hotel lis tenlng to a speech by William FJlnn, of Pittsburgh, who urged "every man must do his full duty and not give up the fight." Several hundred men were In the room cheering when news reached the fringe of the crowd that Mis souri had been won for Roosevelt in the national committee. Francis J. Heney brought the tidings. He first made It known to former Governor Fort, of New Jersey. Heney then started through the fcrowd for the platform and was wait ing to be recognised by Mr. Flinn, when Senator Dixon, the Roosevelt campaign manager arrived. Cheers for Dixon postponed Heney's an nouncement and the leader of the Roosevelt fight advanced to speak "If Theodore Roosevelt Is not wanted by the convention for presi dent of the United States next Tues day," Senator Dixon declared, after a few Introductory remarks, "you can back me up against a wall and do anything you want to with me." As he sooke. the senata folded his arms and further emphasised his statement by leaning against the wall. After he hull- been cheered until ne raised his hand for silence, . Senator Dixon said that the republican na tlonal committee could nut got enough delegates for Taft to nominate. Mr. Heney then took the rostrum When he announced that the nation. sj committee had given the Missouri Uelegutes at large to Roosevelt there was a tumult and then Mr, ritnn asked : "After that do you still compare the national committee to the forty thieves?" "Yes," responded Heney. "I still compare some of the committee to the forty t'.ileves." "But don't you think the commit tee is Improving?" Mr. Flinn con tinued. "t)niy as to results," said Heney. Governor W. R. Btubbs, of Kansas; William Allen White, Edwurd C. Car rlngton, of the Maryland delegation, and others shared In stirring "P en thusiasm. Mr. Currigan aroused cheers by predicting that the electors to be chosen In Miirjiand probably would be found with the electors of West Virginia and Pennsylvania In support of Roosevelt In the electoral college, even though he should nut be the republican nominee. After this meeting the members of the national committee began to ar rive from the adjourned meeting at the Coliseum and were at once sur rounded and pressed for expianu tlnns of the sudden adjournment fol lowing the Missouri contest decision In Roosevelt's favor. Arthur I. Vorys. of Ohio, was con siderably Impressed by the news, and at once sought out Senator Crane. The senator aliuved Mr. Vorys' apprehen sions by suggesting that tne commit tee adjourned to give attorneys time to tirenare their cases. Senator Borah, of Idaho, said he did not know ths reason for the sunoi-n sojournment and said It was at the request of Sen ator Crane. ' Senator Crane told me," saia nen- sti.r foruh. "that the members of the committee were tired, that he thought time could be gained by adjourning for the day end arranging to consoli date rome of the contests and that the allies wished to Investigate sev eral contests." Senator Dixon took a oirrerent view of the matter. He said that Taft leaders on the committee had been irightened by desertions from their own ranks. The Roosevelt campaign manager concluded with the declaration that the Roosevelt force would control the i em Dora rv organisation of the con vention and that Roosevelt would be nominated. The senator, however, ad mitted the Roosevelt forces might not control the credentials committee be cause each member of that commit tee Is selected by his slate delegation. Sens to.- Dixon's declaration that ths Roosevelt forces would name Ihe temporary chairman, followed re volts from other sources that a con ference of Kooseven leaoers nag agreed upon a man to oppose Senator Root Senator D'xon would not snmit inis Tut it was reported a candidate had been selected and that Mr. Koosevelt had been consulted on the matter over the long distance telephone and had agreed to the choice. Governor Hadley, of Missouri, who had been mentioned as the probable man for this place. U was reported, hsd approved tho selection of Borah. Senator Borah held prominent mu ling among the gosslpers aa the choice for the plsce. There are many delegates who think another man rosy win the con vention's crown. Among these Is Sen ator Kenyon. of Iowa, who Issued the following statement: "I found a strong and growing sentiment In Washington for a third candidate. The republican psrty nasi withstood ths stress and strsia put DECISION (upon It since Its organisation In the 'administration of governmental af fairs and tills convention should do nothing that would ondunger Its fu ture or hasard a defeut at the polls In November. "The talk wo hear of two conven tions, bolts, riots, etc.. Is not In keep ing with the dignity of the party cr Its orderly administration of affairs." . At the Tuft headquarters great ac tivity followed the announcement of the adjournment of the ntitlonul com mittee after tho Missouri decision. The Missouri result wuh iniiiiediately communicated to the White House over the long distance telephone und the Taft advisors wero called In by Mr. Hillea.
