,-Ther.' will be no cam promise, a

believed, however, that the committee
will ratify Parker's selection despite
Bryan. The fight must then come on

The candidates for president are
already making claims of victory,
but even the figures put out by each

There is no bitterness among the

tion of a new party, the 15th Repub?
lican national convention, at the end
of a long and tumultuous session, tO
nlght renomlnated William H. Taft
of <>hi<. for president and James
b'choolcraft Sherman of New York
1 r vice president.
President Taft received 561 of the
1,078 votes in the convention, or 21
more than a majority.
The decision of the Roosevelt peo?
ple, under direction of their leader,
to refrain from voting, left no other
candidate near the president. The
announcement of the Taft victory was
greeted with cheering from hll ad?
herents and groans and hisses from
the opposition.
"When it became absolutely certain
early today that Mr. Taft would he
nominated without great difficulty,
the leaders in control of the conven?
tion decided to give him as a running
mate his companion on the ticket in
I All others dropped from the race,
and Mr. Sherman was? the only can?
didate placed before the convention.
A motion from New Hampshire to
make the nomination by acclamation
was declared out of order. Th<T"
were many scattering VOtei on the
roll call that ensued,
j The convention amid much eon
fusion adjourned sine die.
I At no time was there an indication
.of a walk-out of the Roosevelt dele?
gates. They expressed their revolt by
silence, 'n contusion just before ad?
journment a resolution was adopted

The revolt of many Roosevelt dele?
gates Iii the convention was open
from the moment the permanent roll
j containing the names of contested
1 delegates was approved. A "valedic?
tory" statement was read in behalf of
? Col. Roosevelt, asking that hi- name
