Roosevelt, Nominated For
Second Place, Immedi
ately Declined.
Progressives Name New Or
leans Man For Vice Pres
idential Candidate.
Chicago, June 10. The republicans
today nominated Hughes and Fair
banks. Almost at the same time
Roosevelt was nominated by the pro
gressives and later in the day, John
M. Parker, of Louisiana, was named
to fill out the progressive ticket, for
vice president. Republicans required
a ballot of third of the convention,
while progresive nomination was
made by acclamation. Both conven
tions adjourned. This afternoon
Roosevelt sent a message to the pro
gressive convention, declining the
nomination, conditionally and it was
accepted, as Roosevelt wished. This
provisional declination is believed to
leave the door open for his eventual
withdrawal of a third ticket in the
event that Hughes' position on what
progressives believe to be vital issues
of the campaign, meet their approv
al. To this extent. leaders of both
parties believe that efforts at har
mony may yet be realized.
Republicans who took two ballots
last night with a growing indication
that Hughes is likely to win on the
third ballot when the convention open
ed today, it was found this morning
that a "favorite son" combination had
been broken and delegates were flop
ping rapidly to Hughes. By the time
New Jersey was reached in the roll
i call, Hughes had received the neces
sary four hundred and ninety-four
votes and many wanted to make it
unanimous, but Chairman Harding in
sisted on polling the remainder of the
When Hughe3 was nominated, no
word had come as to whether he
would accept but it came shortly after
with the announcement that he had
accepted and had resigned from the
supreme' court.
Fairbanks, who earlier in the day
had requested that his name not be
placed in nomination for vice presi
dent, accepted when he was notified
that he was nominated.
Roosevelt's 'proposal of Senator
Lodge as a compromise candidate,
while received with cheers in the gal
leries, could not head off the stampede
for Hughes once the third ballot got
under way.
Governor Johnson, of California,
who had been informed before hand
of Roosevelt's attitude toward pro
gresive nomination, declined to let his
name be used as running mate.
Chicago, June 10. Roosevelt condi
tionally declined the progresives nom
ination. His message sent to the con
vention, in part, is:. "I cannot accept
at this time. I do not know the atti-
' tude of the republican candidate to
ward the vital question of the day,
therefore, if you desire an immediate
decision, I must decline the nomina-
j tion. But, if you prefer it, I suggest
that my conditional refusal be placed
in the hands or the progressive na
tional committee. If Hughes' state
ments satisfy the committee that it
is for the interest of the country that
he be elected, they can act according
ly and treat my refusal as definite
ly accepted. If they are not satisfied
they can confer with the party and
me, and then determine on action."
The progressive convention accept
ed this and adjourned sine die.
The progressive committee decided
unanimously, to hold another meeting
June 25. Although member refused
- to discuss the meeting, the announce
I ment was taken as an indication that
" s no settlement had been reached as
to whether Roosevelt's name would
remain on the ticket
Washington, June 10. Justice
Hughes today resigned from the su
preme bench and accepted the repub
lication nomination for president. In

Remains Will Be Sent To
Kentucky For Inter
ment. There will be no miliiary church
funeral of Lieutenant Ro?.-an Saufley,
killed Friday when he broke his own
record for sustained aeroplane flight;
instead the remains will be given a
military escort to the train, when
they will be shipped to lus home in
Stanford, Kentucky, for interment.
Lieut Saufley's , father. Judge
O'Rear, of Kentucky, is expected this
morning, when it' will .be decided
whether the remains will be sent on
the noon train or on the night train.
Judge O'Rear was a delegate to
the Republican convention in Chicago.
Thi3 is Lieutenant Saufley's second
fall; the one he had about a year ago,
with Lt. McDonnell, was, however, a
low one and he received only a slight
shaking up.

Tallahassee, June 10. The late re
turns are pratically complete on the
first choice votes in Tuesday's pri
mary for United States senator and
are as follows: Park Trammell 35,
279, N. P. Bryan 17,647, Perry G.
Wall 11,956, A. W. Gilchrist 8,269,
total 73,154. Trammell carried 45
counties, Bryan six counties, Wall one
county, and Gilchrist none. Governor
Trammell's lead is 17,623 over Sen
ator Bryan on the first choice votes

Surprising were the developments
in the fubernatiorial race yesterday.
Knott f r.Mn 400 votes benind, drew
even with Catts and then passed him
with a majority of 1,251 ballots.
With 15,000 votes yet to be heard
from, he was still slightly in the
lead when the forms were closed this
morning. If by "slightly" is meant
that Catts ha3 decreased the thousand-
odd lead, it is evident that there are
more thrills in store before the result
is finally known.
The tallying is proceeding slowly
on account of the second choice pro
positio. The complete returns will
hardly be known before Monday.
Trammell's race is his by a big mar
gin, and Smith wick has conceded the
Kehoe election.

Kehoe, Smithwick
Shows Fine Spirit
That big hearty laugh of J. H.
Smithwick, the laugh that has been
heard in nearly every precinct of the
Third Congressional District, during
the last few months, is just as much
in evidence today as it was when he
and his friends thought fortune was
going to favor him with the congress
ional nomination.
"Tell the boys for me," 6aid he at
his office yesterday, "that I have no
complaint to make because they gave
Walter Kehoe more votes than they
did me. Away back yonder in the
years that have gone, I developed
some political ideas of . my own,
among which was the right of the
people to select whomever they want
for office. Because they failed to elect
me has in no measure caused rae to
think differently.
"My friends have been loyal and
kind to me. I have made hundreds,
yes thousands, of new friends and
they are worth far more to a man
than any political office.
"To every man, woman and child
who said cheering words to me and
for me, and gave me their loyal sup
port in this race, I owe a great debt
of gratitude that I can never pay."
"I just sent the following leter to
Walter Kehoe, the man who got the
"June 10, 1916.
"Hon. Walter Kehoe,
"Pensacola, Fla.
"Dear Walter:
"In order that you may sleep well
tonight, I write you these few lines.
In spite of the fact that am cot in
possession of the full returns from all
of the counties of the district, I have
enough to convince me you have won
the congressional nomination and take
this opportunity to congratulate you.
"I have really enjoyed the race,
both before and after the primary.
I admit that I would now be happier
if you were writing me a leter like
this, but I assure you that there are
no scars on me.
"I have faith in the people and am
always willing to abide by their de
cision. " With best wishes, I am
"Your friend,

It is reported of Mrs. Hughes that
at the time of the birth of Elizabeth,
when Hughes was governor of New
York, .she said to hint: "Our next
baby will be born in the white house."
Mrs. Hughes is also reported to
have expressed joy when Hughes was
appointed to the supreme court, be
cause of the fact that for the first
time in his political career the family
would be able to settle down.
Most Successful Meet. Ever
Held, Say Indi
cations. Captain Behrens of the Southern
Yacht Club of New Orleans, in a
letter; to the Pensacola Yacht Club
yesterday, stated that the contestants
in the long distance race would prob
ably leave New Orleans on Saturday,
July 1st, to arrive in Tensacola on
Sunday the second.
The plan was suggested for sev
eral reasons chief among which it
would afford Pensacolians a "better
opportunity of witnessing the finish
than if the start was made on Sun
day, or even Sunday. Not only is it
desirable from this point alone, it
was pointed out, but it would afford
ample " time for the crews and con
testants to rest up before the regatta
Tuesday, and give an opportunity to
make any1 repairs to the vessels after
the long grind.
Captain Behrens also stated that
were is more enthusiasm over the
race this year than possibly ever be
fore, and it is expected that there will
be about fifteen entries some much
larger craft than heretofore. Many
boats have been built to be entered
in the contest.
lt is understood that many more
local . entries have been made in
the races, and with the revenue cutter
to patrol the course and rules made
the details of the race will be grad
ually worked out. The course has
not yet been decided upon, but will be
announced . later.
It has been suggested that the club
lay the course off Palmetto beach so
that the people on the picnic may
witness the contests.
Officer Harper was yesterday called
to 501 North Hayne street where he
shot a dog, said to have been suffer
ing from the rabies. The dog had
attempted to bite several people, and
was shut up in a house and kept
there until the police arrived.
Beginning next Saturday, June 17,
the custom house at Pensacola will be
closed at 1 o'clock, and on each Satur
day during the summer will be closed
at that time. Shipping interests are
requested to transact their business
there in the forenoon of Saturday.
The Ideal Summer Resort
Man Who Disappeared
. From Navy Yard Has
Been "Located.
Remembers Nothing of the
Manner of His Leaving
J. B. Hagan, the sergeant of ma
rines, whose mysterious disapjear
ance from the naval station alarmed
his friends and comrades, has been
located in the Charity Hospital of
New Orleans, and a report from the
Crescent City announces that the ma
rine sergeant cannot account for his
presence there.
So far as the information received
here stated yesterday, Hagan, in th
hospital, seems to have recovered his
faculties, sufScient to tell who he is.
Following his statement, hospital
officials yesterday got into telegraphic
communication with the Pensacola
naval station, and stated that Hfigan
would be detained at the Algiers na
val station until he is safely able to
come back to Pensacola.
Hagan apparently is suffering from
a temporarily loss of memory, due to
the fever to which he was a viotim
while in the Philippines, complicated
by a recent fall from a motorcycle.
Sergeant Hagan boarded at the
1, 771 L .
" He wes j.tirtd in civilirn
ciotwvJ'an'i started to walk north on
Palaitx street.
This was shortly aft
er 9 o'clock that night. It Is the
contention of friends that, stopping
near the L. & N. passenger depot, a
desire seized him to board the north
bound train. This is apparently just
what he did, for he turned up and
made his identity known in the Char
ity hospital, New Orleans, Saturday
Another Disappearance.
Another man disappeared from the
naval station yesterday or the day
before, but there appears to be no
worrying about the latest miss.ing
man, as friends believe he will coma
back all right.

The revival services that have been
held at the East Hill Baptist church,
corner 13th avenue and Gadsden
street, for the past two weeks will
close with today's services. Mr. W.
A. Ferral from Milton will preach at
11 o'clock and also 8 p. m. A special
devotional service will be held at 7:45
p. nu, preceding the 8 o'clock service.
Interest has been very gratifying
during these meetings and it is very
much desired that today's services
oe tfie very best. The public and
especially the members of the church
cordially invited.
