N. Taft Wins 12 More Votes, Split ting Roosevelt Ranks. Chicago, 111., June 10. This was blue Monday for Theodore Roosevelt, in fact, it was almost purple. By unanimous vote, except in one instance, the National Committee threw out his twelve contesting dele gates from Indiana. It ridiculed his charge of fraud and crookedness. It gave his candidacy the worst black eye it has received in a week. And, further, it caused consternation among his managers, and lea to a fight between them and their col leagues on the committee. His boom ers now find themselves in a position which they have difficulty in defend ing; They are face to face with a situation which they are striving hard to explain. The meeting of the committee was the liveliest thus far held. It was marked by personal clashes between the opposing forces, and showed clearly how bitter will become the fight before it is finished. Serious strife has developed among the managers of the Roosevelt boom and the so-called friends of the move ment on the National Committee. It is due to the insistence of the man agers that the committemen vote to seat the contesting delegates. Most of the committeemen have openly told the managers that they will vote to seat only those who are rightfully entitled to seats. They have declared to the directors of the campaign that they would waste no time with "back-room" delegates. Senator Borah, one of the most ardent supporters of Roosevelt, ex pressed scorn for some of the con tests today and caused a sensation in the camp of the Roosevelt men by openly declaring that he would not "prostitute himself" for any delegate or candidate. "I would cut off my right arm be fore I would vote for a man who was not rightfully and legally elected. That is not my way of doing things. They have asked me to explain why we voted as we did in the Indiana contests. I voted as I did because it was shown to my entire satisfaction that the Taft delegates were elected and the others were not When they present evidence to show that con testants were elected I will vote for them. The evidence presented to day did not show that any irregulari ties were practiced in the Indiana elections. With the seventy-two delegates, comprised in the Southern contests decided last week in the Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Georgia cases, today's gains make a total of 84 dele gates added to the Taft forces by the work of the National Committee. With the 201 instructed and uncon tested delegates credited to him, they bring his total on the temporary roll up to 285, not counting other contests that may be decided for him. The Adrian Banking Company has declared its usual semi-annual divi dend of 6 1-2 per cent. The bank has a surplus fund of $19,000. Its total resources are over $220,000.

Adrian Journal Institute lecturers sent out by the Missouri State Board of Agriculture spoke to 88,643 fanners in the last twelve months, according to the re port of T. C. Wilson, secretary of the board. Institutes' were held in 75 counties and 21 persons lectured. The Church With a Welcome In spite of the rain last Sunday the church house was comfortably filled with people who were more than de lighted with the Children's Day pro gram. Many remarked that the pro gram was of more than usual inter est, and indeed a very great deal might be said in praise of the various members on the program. Both lit tle and large folks did nicely the part assigned to them, and the pastor of the church takes this opportunity to thank one and all of those who took part in the program, and those who had to do with its arrangement. Next Sunday morning at the usual hour our wide-awake Sunday School will convene. A growing interest is manifest, which was only natural when one comes to consider the per sonnel of officers' and teachers' lists. The Young Business Men s Bible Class continues to attract the atten tion of the church folks, &nd friends outside of the church as well; it grows. Our orchestra, lately organized, which has been playing for Sunday School, will soon make their appear ance in our Sunday evening services. Last Monday night the orchestra ren dered a few selections to the delight of the Epworth League official meet ing, which was held in the church parlors. It is a matter deserving spe cial remark that the various organiza tions of the church conduct their ses sions and carry forward their plans in a systematic business manner. The public is cordially invited to attend our next Sunday evening ser vice, at which time the discussion of the last subject in the business men's service wili be held. At this service a number of business men will brief ly express themselves as to the influ ence of the plan which the pastor of the Ohio street church has just tried out. The business men's male quar tette will sing. The subject of the evening sermon will be "The half forgotton ideal; or finding out the needs of my brother and striving to help him." Remember, please, that this church understands how to give the glad hand to friend and stranger alike. The fact is we are mighty glad to have you with us and we believe it will profit you to attend regularly our Sunday evening services. The Fourth of July Entertain ment Called Off. It was the intention of the Butler Commercial Club and the Elks Club of Butler to put on the biggest and best Fourth of July entertainment ever attempted in Butler. Among the other features was to be a circus, given by the Elks, with a monster parade, but alas, when the committee undertook to make arrangements for costumes and other property that they had to use to make a success, lo and behold, they could not get them in Kansas City for the reason that long before they had been en gaged. The matter of securing them was taken up with St. Louts and Chicago with the same result, i. e. too late. A meeting of the Commercial Club directors and committee from the Elks met at Culver's store Tuesday morning and, after canvassing the matter for nearly two hours, decided as we could not begin to give the public what had been promised called it off. This decision was concured in by both the club and the Elks. At the meeting it was decided as we could not put on the entertain ment for the 4th the public was en titled to, we would make a bigger and better Chautauqua which com mences July 28. Trusting that this explanation will be entirely satisfactory, and assuring you we regret exceedingly the disap pointment, but feel that we have done the wise thing under the circumstan ces.

Because she could not talk the "houn' dawg" dialect nor cook a la Bates county, Mrs. Mary A. White, 62 years old, former wife of Tom Speers, once chief of police of Kansas City, declared in Judge W. O. Thom as' division of the circuit court this morning that her husband, Joel N. White, made life a misery to her. Immediately after their marriage two years ago, she said, she moved to the Bates county farm with White and he insisted that she adopt 'the Bates county dialect, declaring the neighbors would think she felt her self above them if she used good English. She was raised in refine ment, she said, and refused to de part from her early teachings.

What has become of the seven governors? They will be remem bered in the aggregate, though most ly forgotten as individuals, as the men who voiced the -'popular de mand" that Col. Roosevelt return to the White House and stay the pro gress of advancing ruin. It was their united voice which de termined the shrinking Colonel to lay aside the welcome robes of priyate obscurity and step forth again full panoplied for war. They were the very head and front of the Roosevelt movement They were the represen tatives of all that spontaneous but unorganized enthusiasm which CoL Roosevelt had inspired in the popular breast But some way, somehow, they dropped out of sight like the trained players in a .prologue when the real drama is staged. The Dixons, the McHargs and the Flynns have shoul dered them into the wings and stand in the limelight where they stood. Does the simile stand for a truth? Were . the seven governors taught their parts by a certain great political stage manager who needed an "in duction" to a grand, triumphant re entry of himself in the role of hero, and are now in the dressing-room washing away the grease paint and wondering why the boss would not let them have an encore?
