Mr. Taft was nominated on tho

receiving 561 votes, or 21 more than
a' majority of the votes In the con
vention. Mr. Sherman was the only man
placed In nomination for second
place, and he received 597 votes. The
rest were scattering or not cast.
Flattened out completely by what
his advocates denominated tho steam
roller, Col. Theodore Roo'sevelt's
candidacy was abandoned by that
gentleman himself, and a few hourB
before the balloting on nominations
began he sent to the convention hall
a request that his delegates should
irefrain from voting on any other
questions whatever. This request
was obeyed by 344 delegates, who
respbnded "present but not voting."

Roosevelt Men Quit tho" Fight.
The story of the last day 'of the
convention la one of much disorder,
quarrels on the floor, sporadic bursts
of enthusiasm, and, during part of the
long session, swift work by the well
oiled Taft machine. Making their
laBt futile fight on the seating of the
contested Taft delegates from Wash

rather riotous behavior, laughter at

bitter denunciation of the nctioris of

was effective In most Instances.

most prominently. That 52 of Its
delegates voted for the colonel was
due to state political conditions.
Pennsylvania created a diversion by
casting two votes for Justice Hughes.
In the mix-up Senator Cummins
grabbed off seven unexpected votes
from Idaho. And La Follotte also
benefited by the conditions, getting
five of South Dakota's votes, In addi
tion to his 2G from Wisconsin and 10
from North Dakota.
Enthusiasm Ie Rather Mild.
If the truth must be told, the vic
tory of President Taft did not creato
any wild enthusiasm in the Coliseum.
Of course, there was a lot of cheer
ing, and a banner bearing the picture
of the winner was carried through
the aisles, but no one followed It, and
tho tired spectators at onco began to
make their way out of tho hall. Even
tho delegates could not bo kept In
tbeir seats for the vote on "Sunny
Jim." The reading clerks Jumped
about like crazy irten trying to catch
the vote In tho midst of th'o din, and
nobody cared very much whether or
not they succeeded.
"This purges tho party of a most
disturbing element." said tho Taft
men, soberly.
"This Is the death of tho good old
Republican party. Now for a new
party a party of progress," Bald the
defeated friends of Colonel Theodore
Such Democrats as were present
said little, but looked Joyful.
Taft Forces Win Every Point.
From tho day when the national
commltteo met to begin the hearing
of contests, tho Roosevelt forces
never won a point of any moment.
With all the machinery in their con
trol, the Taft men dW not let go of
anything that could endanger their
cause In tho least. An instance of
their clover work was tho way In
which tho report of tho committee on
credentials was submitted to the con
vention. It came in to tho hall piece
meal, a state or a district at a time.
This enabled Chairman Root to make
tho eminently fair ruling that the
delegates whoso seats were involved
In each fragment of tho report should
not voto on its adoption. It sound
ed good, but It was perfectly safe.
On only ono of these reports was the
Taft majority reduced to a perilous
point. That was the California case,
considered ono of the strongest
brought up by tho Roosevelt men, and
the Taft voto was 542, Just two ovor
a majority.
On most of the reports tho Roose
velt leaders did not demand a roll
call. First would come tho commit
tee report Then a minority report
with a motion to substitute it. Next
Chairman Root would turn to Jim
Watson of Indiana, who would rise
and move to lay the minority motion
on tho table. "Aye" would vote the
Taft men, stolidly. "No o " would
