June 9.—The Republi-1 can National Committeeman will re- i aume tomorrow morning Its considers-1 flon of the large number of cotnests for places on the temporary roll call of the Republican National convention which is to convene in the Coliseum at noon on Tuesday, of next week.! Upon the results of its deliberations depends to a great extent the condl-! tlon of the convention and therefore the nominations which it will make for the office of President and Vice \ President of the United Stales; to say nothing of the lesser matters of i the organization of the convention j and the text of the platform. The contests in Alabama. Arkansas and Georgia, which were decided last week, added a total of 72 delegates to the strength credited to Taft. Whether It foretold the "steam roller" policy of "giving the whole business to Taft" as the Roosevelt adherents now claim, or whether the contests still to he decided will give some to | Taft and some to Roosevelt Is a mat-; ter of much speculation and bitter interchange between the leaders. Contests Set for Tuesday. le seemed likely tonight that the Indiana cases. Involving twelve dele gates—four at large and two each in the First. Third, Fourth and Thir teenth congressional districts—would! be first taken up when the committee meets at 10 a m , but the cases from j Arlxone — six de|egate»-at-large—and irom me rounn district ot t ailior nla—two delegates—which were pro-; teated. may be considered before In diana. Th« vital importance of decisions of th» national committee; ^ upon the contests is apparent to anyj one studying the lists of delegations Such study incidentally discloses the! great weight which may attach to! the 26 delegates from Wisconsin and, ten from North Dakota tnstruct k for LaFollete. and the ten from! * low a. instructed for Cummins. There is no reconciling the con flicting claim of the Taft and Roose velt managers regarding the respec tive strength of their followings — each is figuring Into his tables dele gations emphatically claimed by the other on the strength of convention endorsements, alleged pledges, and other more or less * substantial grounds. Unofficial Figures. Reasonably dependable, however, seems the figures collected by the As sociated Press, from which can be de rived w-hat may be described as the •‘bare bones” of the situation. These flsAires. which are unofficial and by no means guaranteed, are as follows; Whole number of delegates—1„«7* Necessary for nomination 54<i. Instructed for Roosevelt and tincon tested—411.

ROOSEVELT TO ; BE IGNO: *bi NATIONAL COMMITTEEMEN WILL NOT ANSWER ATTACK Declare They Mill Stand on Their Action in Giving Taft Ala bama Delegates. -- I CHICAGO. June 9.—A majority of the members of the Republican Na tional Committee after a lengthy con ference to-day unofficially decided to refrain from any comment upon the siateinent issued last night by Col. Theodore Roosevelt In wnich the former president denounced the action of the committee In seating the two Taft delegates from the uinth Alabama district. To-dav's impromptu meeting of the National Committee members was held at a down town hotel, and was attended exclusively by those com mitteemen who generally are ac cepted as being favorable to President Taft's candidacy for re-nomination. Certain of the committeemen who attended the meeting expressed great Indignation at the text of Col. Roose velt's stateemnt. which they declared was deserving of an emphatic reply. Others, however counseled against a reply of any kind and urged their fel low committeemen to ignore the state-1 Blent This advice finally prevailed. Scarcely any of the Taft members | day's meeting After It had been con cluded, however, one said: "We are going to stand on our actions regardless of the remarks of persons who are prejudiced and un fair. The work speaks for itself, and 'hat is all there is to It. There is K... nn. ..... .. I_||„ _... people, and that is to Ignore them." Managers Arc Busy. Despite the fact that it was Sunday and that a number of the leaders were out of town, the campaign headquarters of both Taft and Roose velt men were busy moat of the day and late tonight. Francis J. Henev. who prosecuted the San Franemco graft cases, and former Governor George C. Pardee of California, were among those ar riving at the Roosevelt headquarters today and conferring with United States Senator Dixon of Montant, Coy. Roosevelt's campaign manager, and other leader*. After a meeting of a group of Roosevelt managers, it «ai unofll claly announced that Col. Roosevelt would arrive In Chicago ether by the mddle or latter part of the week, hut they declned to name the exact day. Walter F. Rrown, of Toledo, chair man of the Republican state central committee in Ohio, and one of the, active Roosevelt leaders, departed ] from Chicago for the east to-day. and I it was reported that he had gone to Oyster Hay to confer with Col. Roose- i veil regarding :he developments of the last 24 hour* in the convention situa tion Thomas K. Nledringhau*. of St. Ivouis, newly elected national commit^ teeman from Missouri, another promi nent Roosevelt adherent, also departed from Chicago for the east It was said I that he had gone to Pittsburgh hut the i nature of hi* mission was not di vulged. Not to End Fight. Senator Irtxon to-night issued a statement In which he denied reports that the Roosevelt managers Intended to withdraw pending contests. In this | connection the statement said: "Of course, we do not Intend to do 1 any such thing Every contest will b* presented by us If a mafori y of the 1 naf onal committee la prepared to do I llberately unseat Roosevelt delegates ! a* the Taft manager* Insist they will do. we are going to see that the roh-i bery la rommltted In the open day-1 light and In the full viewr of ninety million Amertran cIMxen* " MAS ADHIBAT.

TAFT NEARLY FIGURES IN SEA TRAGEDY LINER ALMOST CRl'SHED PRESIDENTS YACHT IVompt Action of Officers on Steamer Northland Alone Averted Collision. President and Party on the May flower Not Aware of Danger Till Morning. OLD POINT. Va.. June 9 -The presidential yacht Mayflower, with the President and Mrs. Taft and a party of their distinguished guests aboard, j narrowly escaped a collision early to day with the steamer Northland of the Norfolk and Washington line not far from Point Lookout where the Po tomac river empties tnto Chesapeake Bay Only the vigilance of the ofllcer of the Northland and the Mayflower and their prompt action prevented what looked for a minute like an ac cident. As it happened the North land narrowly missed the Mayflower Officials apd one or two persons on the passenger boat, who were looking only got a momentary shock. It was a perfectly still moonlight morning, with no fog and the lights of passing vessels could be seen for miles. The few passengers awake showed no signs of panic but they looked re lieved when the danger was over. The Mayflower left Washington last night about fi:30 for Hampton Roads. In addidon to the President and Mrs. Taft. Oenoral William Crosier. Repre Clarence H Kelsey and Mr* Kelsey, of New York; Mrs. Francis O. New lands, wife of the Nevada senator, and Major T. L. Rhoades. United States America, and Lieut. J. W. Timmons. U. S. N., aides to the President, were Invited guests. Had Clowe Call. The Northland waa on her return trip to Old Point and Norfolk and left Washington shortly after the May. flower. Although she kept the presi dential yacht In tight until dark, and although she is a much speedier boat. Captain Possev made no attempt to pass the President. Shortly after the Northland passed Into Chesapeake Hay. however, where there is plenty of sea room, the officer on watch de cided to forge ahead of the May flower. At that time the navy boat was probably a third of a mile ahead of the Northland and a few hundred yards to the starbolAd of the \orth ■ land s .-on. «■». The fragment 01 moon | and plenty of bright stars made the | hay almost light enough to r^ad by, j while there was hardly a puff of wind, j The Northland gave a signal that she w ished to pass on the Mayflower's port side, and a few seconds later came the response from the yacht, one ; whistle blast meaning that she wished j the Northland to pass not on the port j side but on the starboard Officers I in the Northland's pilot house tvere as tonlshed when they heard the May j flower's one whistle, hut they were j more surprised when the Mayflower : began slowly to cross her bow It was s few seconds before they j grasped Just what was happening, but when they did. four or five sharp 1 short blasts shot from the North land's whistle, meaning the seas over, i "Danger! Lookout!" The quarter master at her wheel gave her a sharp order. He flung over the wheel, the engines of the Northland slowed i down She sheered to port, with a I shudder and the Mayflower made her , wav across the Northland's course ! with a gulf of deep, green water he I tween that quickly narrowed to less j than a thousand feet Once beyond the Northland's course the Mayflower 1 seemed to slow up and the Norfhland passed on her starboard quarter The Northland came into Old Point at ; 7 o'clock this morning, on time The Mayflower dropped anchor off Fort I rese Monroe shortly after s o'clock ( President Taft was not told of the , Incident this morning, hut it was j discussed in the aide room of the Mayflower 550 FRENCH SAILORS STRIKE.

The xiot last night, while extending to all parts of the city and causing} general excitement and alarm, result ed in few casualties.
