"Col. Lyon does not want a Re
publican party in Texas. He wants a
white party," he said. One county
carried by President Taft this year,
said Mr. Bryan, "cast more votes than
ail the one hundred or more 'rotton
borough' counties with which Colonel
Lyon dominated the state convention."
President Taft, he said, carried all t'.ie
large cities where a heavy Republican
vote was cast. He charged Colonel
Lyon with forcing postmasters and
federal employes to support his "pa
per organization" in defiance of the
real sentiment of ' the Republican
voters of the state.

Heney, holding the South Dakota
proxy in the committee, started to
ask a question. Some member ob
"Under the rules," said Chairman
Rosewater, "questions cannot be asked
If there is objection."
"But questions have always been
permitted," said Heney.
"The gentleman from South Dakota
has violated every rule of the com

William M. McDonald, of Fort

the 24f counties, only about one nun

"All the populated counties are
strongly for Taft," he declared.
Tie only RooaeveJt sentiment is that

He declared Lyon was "chairman, sec

Committeeman Lyon conducted the
argument for the Roosevelt contest
ants. He said all contests of Taft
delegates to the state convention had
been regularly acted upon. The Roose

ords to show that 209 out of 249 coun
ties were represented and that 179 of
these were for Roosevelt
A motion to endorse Taft, Colonel
Lyon claimed, was defeated in the state
convention 1631-4 to 13 3-4.
"Mr. Taft's all right, gentlemen,"
said Colonel Lyon. "He Just picked a

The Texas committeeman made i
picturesque attorney for his own dele
ration. He walked about the Taft
delegates, shaking his hand in their
faces and asking them to deny his
statements. He pointed out members

Jas. W. Porch, president of the New
Orleans Progressive Union, who has
been Invited .by the Pensacola Com
mercial Association to deliver an ad
dress in this city on the subject of
municipal docks and a public belt rail
road, has written to Secretary Hen
derson that he will accept the Invita
tion, provided the time can be extend
ed until after the 27th of this month.
It is thought that this can be arranged
without Inconveniencing the associa
tion, so that it is probable that Mr.
Porch will deliver the address here
same time within the next two or
Mr. Porch is one of the most expe
rienced men in the country upon both
of these questions and his address will
bev sure to prove interesting and in
structive to those who are interested
in these subjects.
His reply to the invitation sent him
by the secretary of the Commercial
Association is as follows:
' June 14t 1912.
Mr. Leland J. Henderson. Secretary.
Commercial Association, Pensacola,
Dear Sir: I acknowledge receipt of
your ravor of the 7th instant and note
that you invite me to address your
association at some date that we may
agree upon, on the question of mu
nicipal docks and a public belt rail
road. I thank the directors for having ex
tended to me this invitation and will
be very pleased to accept, but I am
starting the first steamer of the "Pan
American Mail" to ports in Brazil and
Argentine, sailing from here on the
27th instant, and therefore, am up to
my eyes with extra work that will, for
the present, preclude my leaving the
city. If we can arrange a date just
after the 27th it is more than likely
that I wiH accept the Invitation and be
with you at the time agreed upon.
Since you say that a matter of two
weeks hence will be all right, probably
you can extend this a little longer.
Two or three of the friends of Mr.
Watson have called on me with refer
ence to this invitation.
Please let me hear from you giving
your idea of when we could have this
In the meantime, I thank you and
II your board for the kindness shown
Tours very respectfully,
