Wrwlarn Newspaper Union News Service. Chicago. —William Howard Taft received the Domination 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 hold. 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 bis name be not presented and that his delegates sit in mute protest against nil 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. The split In the convention occa sioned no surprise. It was but a ful filment of predictions that had been made during the last several days. The first test vote after the an nouncement of the Roosevelt valedic tory came on the adoption of the party platform. The affirmative vote was 666. Roosevelt delegates present, not voting, numbered 343. There were 63 noes, 36 of them from the Da Follette states of Wisconsin and North Dakota. Senator Da Follette was placed be fore the convention, but Col. Roose velt’s wishes were carried out by his followers, and they remained silent during the call of the states for nom inations. Many of the delegates, however, car ried out their primary instructions and voted for the colonel. VOTE DV STATES. h to • h t. n a r o Z e» o c a & E. S r | » 5 >• a ! o •« v* " . .

President Taft Heart the News. Washington—President Taft spent the day Saturday aliout as usual, fin ishing the afternoon on the golf links With his sons, Robert and Charles. He gave out a statement in which he a%ld: “A national convention of one of Ihe great parties is ordinarily Impprt- ant only as a preliminary to a national campaign for the election of a Pres ident. The Chicago convention just ended is much more than this, and is in itself the end of a pre-convention campaign presenting a crisis more threatening and issues more important than those of the election campaign which is to follow between the two great national parties. "The importance of the great vic tory which has been achieved cannot be overestimated. All over this coun try patriotic people are breathing more freely that a most serious men ace to our Republican institutions has been averted.” WILLIAM H. TAFT. President of the United States.

I have been too greatlv honored by the party, however, to de cline further service when its leaders and its reprcentatlves by their con vention action have expressed a be lief that service was required.
