Chicago.—'William Howard Taft received the nomination for Pres ident of the United States at 9:25 o’clock Saturday night at the hands of the most remarkable national convention of the Republican party ever held. The vote was: Taft 561, Roosevelt 107, La Follette 41, Cummins 17, not voting 343. James S. Sherman was nominated for Vice President. The revolt of many of the Roosevelt delegates In the convention was open from the moment the permanent roll containing the names of contested del egates was approved. A "valedictory” statement was read in behalf of Col. Roosevelt asking that his name be not presented and that hi 3 delegates sit in mute protest against all further proceedings. A great majority of the Roosevelt delegates In the Illinois and all in the Missouri and Idaho delegations de clined to follow this advice, but Col. Roosevelt’s sway over delegations from California, Kansas, Maine, Min nesota, Nebraska. New Jersey, Penn sylvania, South Dakota and West Vir ginia was all but absolute. Most of the delegates from these states announced their purpose of helping give Mr. Roosevelt an inde pendent nomination at another hall later in the evening.
