This was evened up a mo? ment later, when Senator Burton men? tioned Coloned Roosevelt's name. Senator Burton declared the country was confronted with a crisis far sur? passing any through which It has pass? ed in the memory of the present gene? ration.

Although Governor Harmon carried the State ,at the recent presidential preference pri? mary by nearly 11,000, nineteen dis? trict delegates pledged to Wilson were chosen, and they object to being bound by Instructions to vote for Harmon at Baltimore, and threaten to take thei matter before the Democratic Xatlonal Convention If necessary. The Harmon men declare that their candidate was the choice of the Democratic party of the Mate at the preferential primary, and that Governor Harmon is entitled to the voto of tho solid Ohio delega? tion at Baltimore. The anti-Harmon forces are said to oe endeavoring to effect a compromise by having the State convention indorse Governor Harmon and give him a complimen? tary vote for President on the first ballot. Governor Harmon's friends, li Is said, control the convention and will name the six delegates at large to be chosen, but many Harmon delegates are said "to be opposed to tying up tho forty-two district delegates under the. unit rule.

[Special to The Times-Dispatch.1 Farmvlllc, Va., June 3.?The com-1 mencement of the State Female Normal i Srhool began with the senior reception on Saturday evening. An unusual num? ber of guests arc in attendance, and about 4&0 plates were prepared at the bumiuet following the reception. The reception hall was decorated in the class colors, rod and green. On Sunday evening at S:30 o'clock, in the presence of as large an audlenco as the auditorium .would accommodate, the 124 graduutes entered singing as a ?processlonai hymn, "O Saviour, Pre? cious Saviour, Whom Vet L'nsccn We Love." It was a most impressive slgl.t, the long line of girls all dressed In simple white suits.

His closing [talk to the young women of the graduating class was one that they lean take with them into their work: I he gave them as a motto for their lives the "adsum" of lovable old Col? onel Newcome. He charged them when duty called to answer, "I am here"; when pleasure called to an? swer. "I am here"; and when called to enter n higher ?rade in the school of Jife and in the school of eternity, to answer promptly. "I am here." At the close of the sermon the hymn "The Lord be with us as wo bend I His blessing to receive" was sung and the service, was closed with tho benediction, pronounced by 1 Rev Dudlev Boogher, rector of John's I Memorial Church.

[POLITICAL FORTUNE MAY DEPEND ON FIGHT Roosevelt Has Determined to Oppose Seating of Root as Temporary Chairman of Republican Convention. Oyster Bay, N. Y, Juno 3_Upon the selection of the temporary chair- | man of the Republican convention may ' hang- the political fortunes of ex Presldent Roosevelt. He decided, to? night to oppose with all his strength the seating of Senator Root, and issued a call to all his supporters to stand by him. Colonel Roosevelt declares that "Mr. Root has ranged himself agalnBt men who have stood for pro gresslvo principles in the Republican party." and says it is William Barnes. Jr., of New York, who is to be the ral head of tho Taft canvass at Chi? cago. The Colonel's decision to make a square Issue of the seating of Mr. Hoot was reached after a long con? sultation with advisers. At Sagamore Hill tuday were Senator Dixon, Clif? ford l'inchot, William L. Ward Now New York; Ueorge W. Perkins, Now York; Frank B. Kellogg and Andrew Rahn both of whom ure from Minne? sota, and Truxton Bcalc, a delegate, from California. After Colonel Roosevelt had com? pleted his statement, ho brought out the question of whether he la to go to the Chicago convention. May <>o to Clilcugo. "After hearing what the men I have seen to-day have to say," he raid, "my impression is that I will not go. I may roach a different de? cision If any strong arm tactics are attempted." Following in part is Colonel Roose? velt's statement: "In the post Mr. Root has rendered distinguished service as Secretary of .State, and Secretary of War. But in : this contest Mr. Root ranged himself against the men who stand for pro? gressive principles within tho Repub? lican party, that is, agalntt the men who stand for making me Republican party in relation to the Issues of the present day what it was in the. days of Abraham "Lincoln. He stands as tho representative of the men and policies of reaction. He is put forward by the bosses and the representatives of spe? cial privileges. "What has recently come to m!' i knowledge makes it clear that It is I a question of the absolute duty of ? every progressive Republican to op ; pose the selection as temporary chalr ? man at Chicago of any m-m put for | ward in the interests of the support ' era of Mr. Taft In this contest." j Colonel Roosevelt then quotes from a telegram sent to a Roosevelt dele? gate In Pennsylvania by William Barnes, asking for the former's sup? port of Senator Root for temporary chairman: "We believe this contest.'' said Mr. Barne3 in hi? telegram, "la the most ! serious one which has afflicted the Re? publican party, and that the attempt to nominate Mr. Roosevelt can only le?}d to disaster. The doctrines which he has advocated we declared In out platform at Rochester to be subver? sive of our form of government." Makes Issue Clear. ??Telegram* like thl? ha\? been sent to a great number of the delegates, apparently to a ?reat majority of them. This telegram makes the Issue perfectly c>ar. It Is one of principles, not persons. Mr. Barnes de? mands Mr. Root's selection as tho sign of repudlailon of tho principles for which I stand, as an an Indorsement of the doc? trines cnounelated at the Rochester conven? tion, doctrines not merely reactionary, but of such a character that no party profess? ing them could c&rry a single State in this t'nton. These doctrines are so bourbon and reactionary that In every open primary in every Northern Stato since the Rochester convention ?? held, after full discussion the people have overwhelmingly repudiated them. Mr. Root's personality becomes un? important In view of Mr. Barnes's telegram. Mr. Barnes stands as the representative of the very worst forms of bosslsm In politics." Colonel Roosevelt then declares that the present light Is one between the people and the bosses with back of the latter "the great sinister special Interests which are en deavorlrji? to sustain the causa of privilege by perpetuating tne combination between crooked politics and crooked business." He refers to the presidential..preferential primaries that have been held In the vari? ous States and says: 'tThe great maUir Ity of tho Republican parly have unequivo? cally repudiated Mr. Taft. If the wishes of the Republican voters could he given (air gxpresslon, Mr. Taft would, havs out a corporals guard In the convention. But In eplte of all tin rc ?? f., the convention. It left to Itself, will be heavily against Mr. Taft. HU nhoio chance of winning depends not upon tho vote of the national conven? tion, but upon his hopes and plans for so curing Improper action by the national committee. "Mr. Tuft's nomination at Chicago can only be brought about by nullifying the will of the people and by fraudulently seating a sufficient number of boiB-plcked and boss-controlled delegates In the place of uiosc who have been legally elected by tha people themselves. "From those Southern States, where there Is no real responsible party, tbey have sent delrgatcisjiecured by the most unblushing uae of the Federal patronage. In States like New York, where the machine has de? liberately declined to permit the people to participate In the nomination of a candi? date, Taft delegates have also been sent. I believe that the expectations of Mr. Barnes aud his associates will be disappointed. I believe thai there arc- In the national com? mittee enough men. who. although they have In good faith supported Mr. Taft, will de? cline 10 permit themselves to be made tools of for the accomplishment of his nomination by unworthy methods.
