The explanation which best tits the various known facts is that the Taft BUPPOrtOTJ were gl ul to take advan? tage of the three or four hours of time saved by the compromise of the Missouri cases t>> take account of stock and prepare for the struggle ex? pected over the Texas and Washing? ton contests. Roosevelt's supporter professed to bg greatly Slated Over the seating of their delegation at large from Mis? souri and asserted that the outcome in the whole Missouri business exceeded their most sanguine hopes. The Taft people, on the other hand, seemed to take the outcome complacently and abated none of their claims on that account. Chas, Nag? i. national committee* man of Missouri. Mr. Taft'a secretary of commerce and labor, who left Chi* cage yesterday on the eve (,f the Mis? souri content hearing, which he had been counted upon to present, oame in for considerable criticism. The com? mittee action marked the llrst appar? ent concession of the light to Roose? velt Taft men on the committee while mute fof publication, said pri? vately that Mr. Nagle's departure from Chicago had much to do witr the argument in the Missouri cases. The cabinet officer, pressed to pre? sent the Taft side of the controversy, l| known that the secretary had left town some of the Taft members of the committee determined to stand by the Had ley-Re icevelt delegates. Today nbeolutely no one appeared to chal? lenge GoV, Hadley'S presentation of the case, and the Taft leaders said there was nothing for them to do hut surrender, Anyway, tin- lUbjsCt was the topic of sad lees diet usolon among both fac? tions tonight, and the Roosevelt peo? ple unquestionably showed tin- more ? ontentment. Interest in tomorrow's SsSSkm of the national committee was quickened. The tight promises to centre about contests Involving the delegates from Texan The eeateets preceding that on the calendar are Inconsequential Compared with the Texas situation. where the political life of Cecil Lyon, nation.ii con mltteeman, and the strength ol tin Roosevelt machine in the State ate at st ike.

When the committee adjourned at 2.50 o'clock this afternoon the Texas Virginia and Washington contests re? mained as the struggles In which the Roosevelt leaders are to centre th?ir strength tomorrow, Up to tonight the COmmltee's labors have resulted as follows: Today s results: For Taft in contest with Roosevelt ?Oklahoma.

Re? maining undecided 88, None of the contests today brought out the strong partisan feeling that has characterized many of the arg l menti and declsio i In the commit? tee room. In the three districts where Roosevelt contestants appeared the coloners partisan! on the committee VOted against the seating of the Taft delegates but the only strong com? ment was on the decision of the Ninth Tennessee, which Francis J, Heney as? serted was a "clean steal." I A contest from Alaska that had not figured in the committee lists wai dis? posed of without argument just before adjournment. Credentials from a contesting delegation elected at Val des May 29 had been received by Secretary I lay ward but the commit? tee declined to consider them. The NUdden and early termination Of the day's proceedings resulted from desire e>f President Taft's attorneys to prepare the cases Involving the ???I ,.^??/->"? i l.i ...... from Texas. ed and was granted a continuance j until tomorrow morning. An attempt to take up the Virginia and Wash? ington caSCJ met similar opposition from the other side. Ormsby Mc llarg. the Roosevelt contest attorney, said his side was prepared to present the Texas cases, but would not argue the others. By an agreement to consolidate the Virginia contests and to attempt a consolidation of the Washington cases it was made possible to present all the remaining contest! tomorrow. it Is believed. The remaining contests include those of Texas. Virginia, Washington the District of Columbia, and the Third district of North Carolina.
