Bay State's Big
President's Manager Not Satisfied With Result Oo Dele-gates-AMarge-'-Colonel
Roosevelt Declares Tbat He
Meant Every Word Of Message To Delegates In
structing Tnem To Vote For His Rival, And Will
Use Every Endeavor To See They Obey
Boston, May 2. Despite the orders
Issued from Oyster Bay that they
vote for President Taft in the Chi
cago convention because the real will
of the people as expressed In the
preferential vote was that Taft dele
gates be chosen, the eight Roosevelt
delegates-at-large chosen at the pri
mary are going to stand pat and vote
as they please. They are not
going to act jointly although
at first they decided to stand togeth
er by their pledge for Roosevelt.
Later, when they heard of the col
onel's demand that they support
Taft, they tore up the agreement and
each will go on his own hook.
A general recount of the votes will
be asked by General Champlin on
the ground that the real choice of
the people is not expressed in the
returns from the election ' officers,
and that a second Inspection of the
ballots is necessary to determine the
extent of the Seiberlich blunder.
Returns from the primary dribbled
in all during the day, and are com
plete with the exception of the vote
in three small towns. They show
Taft led Roosevelt by 3,973, while
Clark led Wilson by 19,021 in the
preferential vote of the people for
their selections for the Republican
and Democifttlc nominations for the
presidency. The vote for Taft was
87,117; for Roosevelt, 83,144; for
Clark, 33,491; for Wilson. 14,470.
Eight delegates-at-large pledged to
Roosevelt were chosen by about
8,300 rlurality over the Taft slate.
Delegates Declare Themselves.
There Is a big row on over the
question of whether the eight delegates-at-large
are morally If not
legally bound to support Taft In the
convention, and there Is talk of their
seats belngcontested at Chicago. Kite
of the eight delegates-at-large chosen
as pledged to Roosevelt said that
they would not accept the release
from their pledge givpn by the col
onel, and proposed to vote for him
in the convention regardless of his
request to follow the preferential
choice of Taft.
Those who made this statement
were Charles S. Baxter, James P.
Magenis, George W, Coleman, Arthur
L. Nason and Alvln O. Weeks. Octave
LaRivlere, another delegate, said he
might do what the colonel requested,
and Frederick Fosdick said that he
was willing to vote for Taft, but
would not make his decision at this
time. Professor A'lbert B, Hart Is In
the west and could not he reached.

Eight Will Vote As
Several of the delegates expressed
their displeasure at the "butting in"
on the part of the colonel.
