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."

will make a. more, vigorous
fight than ever for a platform which
will meet his views. He made it
today that under no circumstance!

Vice President Reports in Person
Result of the New York
State Session
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
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
"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.
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
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

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.

rather significant that Mr. Longworth

It has been announced in connection
With Mr. Sherman's visit that he was
to talk over plans for the coming con

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.
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

for the Republican nomination for gov

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-;

CHICAGO, Aug. 17.—Despite dis
closures of wholesale attempts to in
fluence veniremen in the case of Lee
O'Neil Browne by agents acting for
parties not named In court, State's At
torney Wayman declared tonislit that
tli.i trial will proceed in Chicago.
Thirty-six members of the panel that
reported today were dismissed, leaving
thirty-three to be examined as to their
qualifications for Jury service. None
passed the examUatlon and another
panel was supoenaed to report to
morrow. .
When the sixth panel of veniremen
reported today, nearly all of them, as
was the ease with the fifth panel yes
terday, admitted they had been "ap
proached" with reference to their pos
sible services as jurors. Judge Ker
sten called counsel for Browne to his
chambers for consultation. When
Judge Kersten asked those venlroineu
who had been spoken to about the ease
to pome forward the inquest was not
clearly understood and only five men
responded. His next request was more
"Let those whose families have lieen
visited by anyone with reference to
this case come to the bench."
Fifty of the panel of eixty-ninc arose.

by the United States. Otherwise it
would mean nothing. But it is time
that our country has peace.
