THREATS ME BY BOTH SIDES
And the Greatest Struggle in
American Political Histo
PRESIDENT AHEAD AT START
Taft's headquarteis, Chicago,
June 17. "We have the 'Notes to
nominate President Taft. All claims
made by Roosevelt men that they
will stampede the convention woiild
bo ridiculous were it not for the
fact that they are coupled with
open throats. Hut they haven't
enough votes either to control the
convention or nominate their candi
date. They say thoy will bolt If
they cannot have their wav. Well,
If so, then the Republican purty will
continue to he the party of the peo
ple." This was tho declaration of Wil
liam llnrnos, Jr., mllltum lender of
the Talt forces, to-night just at the
moment Roosevelt was announcing
from the bnlcnny of the Congress
hotel that he was bore to see the
will of the people cat lied out.
Congressman McKlnley stated
that the coming of Roosevelt was
more "bluff and bluster" resorted
to by the Roosevelt adherent?.
Chicago, June 17. The Roose
velt program Is light from the drop
of the gavel.
Immediately upon arrival last
evening, Colonel Roosevelt gave
this order to his followers:
"A fraudulent temporary loll
never will be adopted. There are
at least sixty delegates on the roll
who have been put there by fraud.
It will not be the roll of the conven
tion. Fraud will be prevented by
any means necessary to yrevotit It."
That Is as far as tho Colonel
would go at this time. As to ways
and means he declined to talk. Con
ferences, however, began lnime
The plan of the Roosevelt mana'
gers was woiked out In part before
Roosevolt's arrival, and Is briefly
to object from the very beginning
to the temporary roll of the conven
tion offered by the national commit
tee". ""' ' " l'1""- ' I "'" I "
As endorsed by Roosevelt, tho
plan Is to take any and all steps
necessary to make that objection
It hns been the ordinary piactlce
of national conventions to permit
the reading of the temporary roll of
delegates as made up by tho na
national committee. Later, con
tests nre referred to the credential1'
committee, which approves the find
ings of the national committee In
making up the temporary roll. Then
th credentials committee reports
and gets the approval of the body of
In working out this program it
is evident that tho delegates seated
by the national committee will sit
and vote on the lights of others to
hold their seats. The Taft people
are reiving on the procedure mad"
at the Harrison convention. In the
Harrison convention, it was agreed
that contested delegates, while they
could not vote In their own contest,
could vote on other contested dele
gates. This proposition will be challeng
ed from the start by the Roosevelt
Tho first business In opening the
convention Is t lie rending of the
call. This is followed by the read
ing, by one of the secretaries, of tho
temporary roll-call. The first letter
of tho alphabet will bring up the
Ninth Alabama case and names Taft
delegates from that district. This,
when read, will be challenged as
having no right on the list nnd the
demand will bo made by the Roose
velt delegates that Its members
shall bo excluded.
No business will bo transacted
until the tight then begun Is decid
ed. Roosevelt will hare more than 400
delegates on the floor whose right
to sit Is not open to question, and
It Is contended that tho convention
cannot do business with these 400
delegates fn a state of eruption.!
They will Insist on their point, and!
they say frankly that any attempt
to suppress them will be met In
similar fashion. They promise to
keep up the light all day and all
night, as long as may be necessary,
to prevent the ndoptlon of what
they, term a fraudulent roll.
With every rule dlscatded, every
precedent being shattered, a situa
tion absolutely new In American
polities has resulted. There Is .a
revolution of practices and Ideas if
not of arms. The West, restless
and progressive, and full of the
