TAR IS WINNER BAY STATE TELLS THE TALE former Pr%#i«lent Need* 911 Delegate* to Win and Only 310 Remain t« Be Eelected—Tables Tell the Story. Theodore Roosevelt baa already lost ail chance of renomination for a third term by the Republican national con vention at Chicago In June. On Sat urday night. May 4. he needed 311 del- egrttes to control the convention and on that day only 310 delegates re mained to be chosen. The 744 dele gates already elected are instructed for or pledged to President Taft, Colo nel Roosevelt, and Senators I.A Fol lette and Cummins, and of this num ber President Taft has almost two thirds for his renomination. The plain defeat of Colonel Roose velt in Massachusetts practically took him out of the race, and the action of the Thirteenth Missouri district in sending to Chicago delegates pledged to Taft proved his unlucky undoing. In Massachusetts the contest was fought under a presidential preference primary law which had Mr. Roosevelt's complete approval. The Issues raised were issues squarely between Presi dent Taft and Colonel Roosevelt them selves, and the vote showed this re sult: President Taft carried the presi dential preference primary by 4.000 plurality and had an actual majority '"'tr both Colonel Roosevelt and Sen )r 1-1 Follette. 1 The president carried nine of the f' irteen congressional districts in the state. The Taft alternate ticket was elect by a plurality as large as the presi nt's on the preference vote. The Taft delegate ticket was defeat ed through a technical error on the rt of the voters, who were confused the presence of an independent ft candidate on the ticket. This caused more than 18,000 voters vote for nine Instead of eight Taft delegates at large, thereby invalidat ing their ballots, although their prefer ence was plainly shown. In recogni 'n of this fact Colonel Roosevelt nself has waived his claim to these ^legates. aft'a Widespread Support. The overwhelming victory of the president has been hailed by Republic-. ans everywhere as the end of ihe fight and his renomination is now conceded. The president will verify the claims of his CHinpnign managers made early in the contest In that he will have a majority of the delegates at Chicago from the north, south, east and west. The president has already carried the rock-ribbed Republican states of New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, The figures to date, showing the utter hopelessness of Mr. Roosevelt's campaign for renomination and the ab solute certainty of the renomination of President Taft, are contained In the following tables: Number of delegates to the na tional convention ,...1,075 Necessary to nominate 640 Delegates elected 744 Delegates to be elected 334 Of the delegates elected: Mr. Taft has 469 Mr. Roosevelt has 229 Mr. La Follette h. s 3fi Mr. Cummins has io Total 744 Of the delegates to he elected: Mr. Taft needs 7i Mr. Roosevelt needs jn Mr. La Follette needs 604 Mr. Cummins needs 630 The elates of Arkansas, 18 votes, and Nevada, 6 votes, are now ready to act finally, both being for President Taft. This means 24 additional votes for Taft and makes the real Taft fig ures as follows: For Taft Mr. Taft needs 47 Adding Arkansas and Nevada to the Taft total would increase the total of delegates elected to 768 and reduce the number to be elected to 310. It affects the Roosevelt table as follows: Number of delegates yet to be elected 1 Mr. Roosevelt needs an Hence, Mr. Roosevelt has already lowt control of the convention. Delegates Elected.

From now on the contest in the Republican party is a Appeal Now Taken From People to the Bosses. Step by step Theodore Roosevelt's campaign for a renomination for a third term is falling hy the way Bide. At first Mr. Roosevelt made a direct bid for instructed delegates for himself. This effort met with such a feeble response at the hands of the Republicans throughout the country that Senator Dixon and his other managers undertook to set up "fake" contests throughout the south as an evidence that Mr. Roosevelt's campaign was making even greater progress than it r«lly was. Now, having been defeated in their purpose of securing a majority of the national Republican convention, and having had their "contests" in the south "shown up" in their true light, the Connecticut, Rhode Island. New ^ork. Roosevelt managers have turned their Delaware. Indiana, Michigan, Ken- attention to persuading delegates ac tucky, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada. The Republican states vet to be heard from include New Jersey, Ohio. Min nesota and most of the mountain and Pacific states, all of which are lean ing to the president's support. tually instructed or pkdged to Presi dent Taft to bolt th ir instructions. In other words, instead of living up to their professed inte.ition of appeal ing to the people, Mr. Roosevelt and his managers are now appealing di rectly to the political "bosses" to help tbem out of a hole. The work done by Ormsby McHarg with respect to persuading southern delegates to bolt President Taft has met with a warm reception in the south. The southern leaders of the Republican party are thoroughly in sulted and incensed at the attitude as sumed by Mr. Roosevelt's representa tives toward them ar.d their associ ates and they declare that southern Republicans are not mere chattels to be bought, sold and delivered on call. They have instructed themselves to vote for Taft by their own free will and volition, and vote for Taft they will in the national convention. Among the Republhans of the south who have roundly denounced the meth ods of Dixon and McHarg are Pope Long and Senator Sloen of Alabama, Lee Brock of Tennessee, Col. Henry S. Chubb of Florida, Henry S. Jackson of Georgia and T. L. Grant of South Car olina. LINCOLN'S SON EXPOSES T. R. "Do You Want Gettysburg Speech Rewritten?" He Asks.

"It was appointed by Mr. Roosevelt as president of the United States, either on the suggestion to him of the secretary of agriculture or by his own suggestion to the secretary. The ac tual announcement was made by the secretary of agriculture. I was told that Mr. Roosevelt selected Dr. Rem sen, and that Dr. Remsen selected his associates. "What about the appropriations for the support of the board and the au thority of law for its appolatment?" was asked. "The appointment was by the ex ecutive order of President Roosevelt, replied Dr. Wiley. "Every dollar paid to the Remsen board for all of its work has been paid from appropria tions made to the bureau of chemis try for the purpose of enforcing the food and drugs act. "The Remsen board was appointed In 1908," continued Dr. Wiley. "In a little less than a year, on January 23, 1909 (well toward the end of President Roosevelt's administration the Remsen board rendered its ver diet favorable to the use of benzoate of soda in food products. The opinion was publicly promulgated some two or three months later. The Remsen board has been investigating sulphur dioxide all the years since then aad haa not made its report yet." WOMEN COMMEND TAFT Praise Appointment of WMM Head Child Bureau. One of the most Interesting features of the commendations which the presi dent has received upon choosing a woman—the first woman to hold a bu reau headship under the government —for this important work has been the voluntary expression from women of the highest rank in the nation for human conservation. Among those whw have expressed themselves in th® highest praise of the act of President Tai't are Rev. Anna H. Shaw of New York, Mrs. Philip N.

FAIRBANKS FOR TAFT Campaign Lie Nailed by Vice-President. Lemmon, Former The report that former Vice-Presi dent Fairbanks of Indiana will not serve as a Taft delegate-at-large from Indiana at the Republican national convention at Chicago, in June, is a campaign canard .made out of the whole cloth. Mr. Fairbanks himself never authorized or sugeested any such statement of his position, but, on the contrary, he has authorized Col. Harry S. New, Republican national Committeeman from Indiana, and chairman of the committee on arrange ments of the Chicago convention, to say: "The report is without any founda tion in fact. Mr. Fairbanks haa not I declined and will not decline to go as a delegate." This report of Mr. Fairbanks* alleged determination not to go to Chicago as a delegate originated with and was i circulated in Indiana by a newspaper I which prepared, set up and printed and circulated in the state an hour after the polls opened on primary day, a charge of fraud in that primary Not content with laying the groundwork for a trumped-up contest on behalf I of Mr. Roosevelt in Indiana the Fair banks canard has now been added to the achievements of this newspaper in this campaign.
