Chicago, Juno 2fi Hy n vote of 32 to
6, with nine members declining to
vote, the National Committee of tin
Progressive party today endorsed
Charles E. Hughes for President and
tho Hull Moose party practically went
out of existence ns a national politi
cal organization.
Tho decision to endorse tho Repub
lican candidate came at tlie end of a
stormy day. Tho fight In tho com
mltteo for Hughes' endorsement was
led by Charles W. Perkins, of New
York; James R. Gnrflold, of Ohio, and
Chester II. Powell of Cnlofornla.
The radical element In tho commit
tee, represented by Matthew Hale, of
New York; Henry F. Cochems, of Wis
consin, nnd John M. Parker of Louis
latin, vigorously protested against the
endorsement of nny candidate for
President and fought the majority nt
eery step of the proceedings. The
minority's first move was to insist
on an open session of the committee,
and It won this point after a number
of committeemen, led by Joint M
Parker, bolted tho meeting.
After Oscar King Davis, secretary
of the comuilttoo, had read Colonel
Theodore Roosevelt's letter finally de
clining the Progressive nomination for
President and urging that Mr. Hughes
bo supported by members of tho Pro
gressive party In order to dofea'
President Wilson, the committee voted
to accept Colonel Roosevelt's declina
tion, and took a recess for luncheon.
At the beginning of tho afternoon
session. Chairman Matthew Hale, of
Massachusetts, ruled the next order
of business was to fill the vacancy on
tho ticket caused by the refusal of
Colonel Roosevelt to run. Hnlnbrldgc

Colby, of New York, presented the
name of Victor Murdoek, of Kansas,
ohnlrmnn of the eonimltteo, now on

between Rnyn'ond Robins of Illinois,
and Mr. Colby In which the He wns
passed. Mr. Robins snld Murdoek had
teld him he would not accept the
Presidential nomination. The propo
sltlon to run a third party ticket was
then defeated nftor a spirited debnte
by a vote of 31 to 1!!.

hours ensued.
