Mr. Hughes has been a sufferer from heart disease, and dlspondency may have been the cause of the de rangement of mind that caused him to commit so rash an act. Early on Monday morning Mr. Hughes left his bed and threw himself Into a lateral, with the evident Intention of ending^!» his life by drowning, however, on com ing to the house he gave "as a reason for leaving it that parties were trying to kill him.

Ul """"" WILLIAM HOWAftD TAFT, FROM HU LATEST PICTURE. earrea* rron> one-emotion- r? atrotner, was in a fever of expectancy for the culminating vote. The favorite sons of other states had been named, save Knox and La Follette, and now on the rollcall came Ohio. As the Buckeye state was reached the tall, gaunt form of Theodore E. Barton, with student-like face and severe black, clerical garb, advanced to the platform to nominate Ohio's candidate. He spoke fervently, with the singing voice of an evangelist, which went ringing down through the great building. The close of his speech of .nomination was the signal for the long pent-up feeling of the Taft legions. Instantly the Ohio del egates were on their feet, other Taft states following, while the convention hosts In gallery and on floor broke Into a mad demonstration. A huge, blue silk banner bearing the familiar features of the Statesman-Secretary was swung before the delegates, awakening a fresh whirlwind of en thusiasm. A lull gave the opportunity for the speech seconding Taft's nomination by George A. Knight, of California, his big, round face beaming forth on the sympathetic multitude and his splendid baritone voice going fôrth like tones of a great church organ. California's tribute to Taft was brief and fervid. Now there was another lull in the Taft movement, while the remaining candidates were placed In nomination. It was late In the afternoon before the convention, now literally swelter ing with the intense heat, reached the end of the flood of eloquence and the decks were at last cleared for the seconding of La Follette. When the cheers following the speech had died away, like a cyclone from a clear sky burst a La Follette demonstra tion which sweptibe convention from Its very bearing - . ITseemetTas though Wisconsin had suddenly peopled ev ery foot of the galleries. The dele gates sat calm and waiting, except the frantic Wisconsins, but the con vention for the time being was In the possession of the galleries. Amid this pandemonium and with the galleries In full control, Chair man Lodge decided upon heroic ac tion Ih order again to make the con vention master of its affairs. He or dered the rollcall of states to begin for the vote on President. Such a call, under such circumstances, has probably never before occurred In the history of national conventions. The secretary was powerless to make his call of states heard above the deafening clamor. Gradually the curiosity of the multitude con quered Its enthusiasm and it lapsed Into silence to hear the result of the call. A hush of expectancy hung over the assembly as the call proceeded. Hasty summaries showed that Taft was far In advance. When New York was reached, the Taft column totaled 427. Ohio carried the Taft total to 611, or 20 more than enough to nom inate. Still the call went on until the final result was announced by Chairman Lodge. "For Theodore Roosevelt, 3 votes; for Joseph B. Foraker, of Ohio, 16 votes; for Charles W. Fairbanks, of Indiana, 40 votes; for Joseph G. Can non, of Illinois, 68 votes; for Robert La Follette, of Wisconsin, 25 votes; for Charles ■. Hughes, of New York, 67 votes; for Philander C. Knox, of Pennsylvania, 68 votes, and for Will iam H. Taft, of Ohio 702 votes." A great shout went up as Lodge concluded his announcement, and with one accord the adherents of Cannon, Knox and Hughes and the others joined in a common tribute to the candidate of the party. General Ptewa rt L- Woodford, for Governor Hughes, leaping' upon a chair, moved to make the nomination of Taft unanimous; Senator Penrose, for Knox; Boutell, for Cannon; Henry, of Georgia, for Foraker, and Cochems, of Wisconsin, for La Fol lette, seconded the movement for a unanimous vote for the candidate, which was given with a ringing cheer. before the convention assembled (Continued on second peso.) vit in vru-ii « . „ " ÄE " S ' Munyon & Shinn drove to Twin Falls Saturday.
