Griscom Says Roosevelt's Fight Will Be Carried to Primaries and to the Convention NEW YORK, Aug. 17.—There was marked calm today over the troubled waters of the Republican political sea following the storm yesterday when the "old guard" in the Republican state committee voted down Theodore Roose velt's name for temporary chairman of the coming state convention. No one was prepared to say how things would shaii.' themselves during the prelimi naries to the state convention, where the delegates, after all. will determine finally who shall be the temporary pre siding officer. New York County Chairman Gris < nni, who presented Roosevelt's name to the committee, says the light will \n- carried to the primaries and to the convent urn. That Colonel Roosevelt intends, as a delegate to the state convention from •v county, to urge, a progressive platform and candidate for governor, is clearly Indicated, politicians say this morning, in that portion of the colonel's statement issued last night which says that a speech by him would be of such character that it might help if the convention nominated the right man, but that it would hurt if neither the right kind of a man was nominated nor the right kind of plat form adopted." ROOSEVELT MAY BEGIN SHARP PLATFORM FIGHT OYSTER BAY, X.

He made it today that under no circumstance! would lie allow his name to be pre sented to the convention as a candi date for the governorship nomination. T. R. TO SEE AERO FLIGHTS GARDEN CITY, N.

SHERMAN HASTENS TO HOME OF TAFT Vice President Reports in Person Result of the New York State Session SPEAKER CANNON MUST GO Straight-Out Fight on Republican Record and Platform to Be Made (Associated Press) • BEVERLY, Mass., Aug. 17.—For nearly threo hours this afternoon Pres ident Taft and Vice President Sherman talked over the defeat of Col. Roose velt by the New York state Republi can committee yesterday and the ■•lec tion of Mr. Sherman over Mr. Roose velt as temporary chairman of the Sar atoga convention. Mr. Sherman said he had no intention of withdrawing In favor of Mr. Roose velt, and ho treated lightly the stories that there might be a fight In the con vention to repudiate the action of the state committee. The vice president also talked with the president regarding the congres sional campaign. He wants the fight to be waged along the old lines. v A stiui«htout . Republican right on the Republican platform the record of the party,- including-the tariff, he put it. At Mr. Sherman's solicitation, Presi dent Taft agreed to point the way in the campaign by writing a letter which is to bo a part of the campaign text book of the Republican committee. While the light apparently is to be directed along the lines of the past, it can be said authoritatively that the feature of ■ the party reorganization plans which call for the retirement of Speaker Cannon will be strictly ad hered to. It is even said that Vice President Sherman, one of the stanch est supporters the speaker ever had, has become reconciled to the decision that Mr. Cannon must go. A statement is being prepared in quarters close to the administration, in which the attitude recently taken by Mr. Cannon in public interviews will be deplored and in which it will be made plain that there is no thought of many of his former supporters to name him for speaker. Representative Longworth of Ohio, who has been called into nearly all the recent conferences at the president's home, was at the interview with Mr. Sherman today. Representative An thony of Kansas, one of the so-called "standpatters" in the Kansas delega tion, who succeeded in staving defeat by the insurgents in the recent pri maries, also saw the the president. Mr. Anthony also ■ supported the speaker, but he said today that he de plored the stand Mr. Cannon is taking. Mr. Anthony said that Speaker Can non had almost been forgotten as an issue in Kansas until he came into the campaign and made himself one. President Taft will begin work at once on the letter which is expected to be the keynote of the congressional campaign. He will address the com munication to Representative -William B. McKinley of Illinois, chairman of the Republican campaign committee. It is not decided whether the letter will be given out in advance of its appear ance in the text book. There is every likelihood that it will, however. Mr. Sherman urged the president to make the tariff a prominent issue. v SHERMAN KXM.AINS With regard to the New York situa tion, especially the action of the state committee yesterday, Mr. Sherman said that he had explained matters to the president as far as he understood them. "Did you explain the turn down of Col Roosevelt?" ■ ■'I don't know that Mr. Roosevelt was turned down. I only know that an other man was selected as the tem porary chairman of'the convention." Mr. Sherman said he thought the events of yesterday would not have a serious effect on the Republican cam paign, although he could not say they exactly tended to harmonize the situa tion. "It has been suggested that you might withdraw, in the interest of harmony." ' ■ "No; I am going to serve in the in-. terest of harmony." President Tuft has, from the very first, endeavored to bring about har mony in New York. Ho has fairly, pleaded with the leaders to "avoid a fight." but apparently his advice will not be heeded. TO IJfDOBSfe I Ml' Vice President Sherman told the president that the Republican state platform will carry a warm indorse ment of his administration and all of his acts. , "Will it bo a clean-cut progressive platform, as Colonel Roosevelt sug gested?" the vice president was asked. •■I have not digested Col. Roosevelt's statement as yet. it will be a clean cut Republican platform, however, I can tell you that much." Mr. Sherman did not give the presi dent a very roseatte view of the situ ation. Representative Anthony was not very optimistic either. He thought the Dem ocrats would gain two seats in congress. President Taft would not discuss Mr. Sherman's visit. He seemed anxious, however, that it should be made plain that Mr. Sherman's visit was arranged for some time an I whs not the result of recent happenings In New York. President Taft is going ahead with his plans to visit Panama in Novem ber. LONGWORTH CALLED INTO CONFERENCE WITH TAFT Believed Breach More in Prospect Than Adjustment BEVERLY, Mass., Aug. 17.—Vlca Pi lent Sherman arrived In Beverly shortly before noon today and went to the executive offices, where he had a long conference with Secretary Nor ton prior to going to Burgess Point to pass the afternoon with the president. The selection of Mr. Sherman as tem porary chairman for the' New York Re publican convention and the defeat of Col. Roosevelt, lent an added Interest to the vice president's visit. Mr. Slier man would not discuss the New York situation. Ho indicated that there might be something to talk about after his interview with President Taft, but he doubted it. toNOWOBTH IN CONFERENCES Representative Longworth of Ohio wan expected to bo present at the HOOSIER POET WHO RECENTLY SUFFERED PARALYSIS STROKE ■ -Vi :-."T.'^7"' :;;H--r.^-- s^iwti-vi•.-•■; JAMBS WHITCOMfc RIT.EY IXPIANAPOLIS, Aug. lT.^lames Whitcomb Riley. the "Hooster poet," who. recently, suffered a stroke, of paralysis, is Baid to be im proving. As this is his first stroke it is thought Jie has a splendid chance for complete recovery, but his confinement to his home for several weeks is caus ing anxiety among his friends. Mr. Riley was born in 1853 and commenced writing for Indiana newspapers in isTT, since which.ttme he has written several volumes of humorous verse and prose, most of which are in a middle western dialect. conference between the president and vice president this afternoon. It is rather significant that Mr. Longworth haa been called Into a number of con ferences lately, both with the president and with Secretary Norton. It has been announced in connection With Mr. Sherman's visit that he was to talk over plans for the coming con gressional campaign. It is known that President Taft has been hoping that harmony could be brought In New York prior to convention time. The action of the..state committee in voting down Col. Roosevelt as temporary chairman and the statement issued by the colonel indicating that it might be just as well for some members of the party that he was not to make the speech he had in mind Indicate that there is every prospect of a widespread breach rather than an adjustment of party differences. CALIFORNIA NEWS RECEIVED News from the California primaries of yesterday was awaited with great interest in Beverly today. No com ment was forthcoming, however, when word was received that Hiram John son, insurgent, had carried the state for the Republican nomination for gov ernor by approximately 50,000 plurality. Col. W. H. Nelson of Kansas City, who in an interview here a few days ago asserted that if Col. Roosevelt would run for president again he would sweep the country, motored through town today. "What' do you think of Col. Roose-; velt now. in view of yesterday's de feat? Do you still think he can "como back"? the colonel was asked. "Not with those fellows down there," laughed Col. Nelson, as he speeded away. ROOSEVELT SAYS RESULT OF MEETING PLEASES HIM OYSTER BAY, N. V., Aug 17.— Theodore Roosevelt may stay out of politics in New York state during the coming campaign as a result of the action of the Republican state commit tee yesterday in refusing to recommend him as temporary chairman of the state convention. Colonel Roosevelt laughed today as he talked of yester day's meeting and said that the result' gave him great pleasure. He ex plained his attitude by saying that ho felt the committee had relieved him of all responsibility in connection with the. conduct and result of the cam paign. He added that he had not de cided whether he would attend the convention. He Is inclined to the belief that it would be better to stay away and let the old guard carry on the fight by j itself. :;,.i_u£!JjH DRAW UP WARRANTS FOR FORMER I. C.

'' ■ Aubrun, whose, time from Amiens was 1 hour and 51 minutes," completed the circuit In 13 Hours 127. minutes 14 seconds. None of the other competi tors completed ! the entire course, though Le Qagnleux, who was forced to retire In the early stages of the race, • finished with ,Ifg B^anc and Aubrun. snoops ,ijke , UAH i There was a moment of tumultuous cheering as Le.Blaric appeared above Issy In .the early dawn and from a height'<of nearly a quarter of a mile planed, down .toward'the earth and swooped across the. line like a giant hawk. The authorities. In anticipation of the excitement of the enormous crowds, had cordoned the alighting place at Issy with hundreds of police, backed by a regiment of cuirassiers of long experience in handling the Parisian crowds on days of demonstrations. Nevertheless, the spectators, In an ir resistible rush broke through the lines and bore the victor on their shoulders to General Brun, the minister of war, who, with his staff and other high of ficials had appeared at the finish at this early hour to welcome the victor. General Brun congratulated Le Blanc in the name of the government, while a military band struck up "The Mar seillaise." Before the cheering for Le Blanc died down, Aubrun In his monoplane, shot into sight at the vert point in the sky where Le Blanc had first been seen, and following the victor's wake crossed the line and made an equally graceful landing. In close succession to Le Blanc and Aubrun came Le Gugnieux and five army officers who had acted as escorts to the contestants in ' the last stage of the flight, the successful , trip of eight aeroplanes across the country simultaneously and under prearranged i conditions demonstrating to what an extent the conquest of the air has been carried. Such a gallery of spectators has nev er before been seen in Paris. The Eiffel tower was chosen as a point of vantage by crowds of specta tors and the towering steel structure was black with .people watching the finish. On the field at Issy, where the avia tors finished, 200,000' spectators had gathered, the crowd including Prince Roland Bonaparte, General Dalsteln, the military governor of Paris, and hundreds of distinguished men and women, who, when Le Wane's mono plane was first sighted as a black speck high above the city, were seized with a perfect delirium. — *—^ CMCAGOAN FLIES ACROSS GHANNELWITH PASSENGER (Continued from race One* of 'the zone of greatest danger near the shore, • seemed to steady his machine, and aB she passed out of sight of Calais she was, according to the re ports received here, flying at an alti tude of about 500 feet.
