CHICAGO, June 14. After a careful re
view of the situation William Barnes,
jr.. the New York state chalroian, to
day asserted that President Taft would
be nominated on the first ballot.
"Ths president will have 655 delegates
on the first ballot," he said. "Roosevelt
win have only 468. I am confident that
these figures will represent accurately
the first nominating vote In the conven
tion." Mr. Barnes wbs asked if he woul con
duct the campaign in New York as 'state
chairman if Colonel R&osevelt was nom
inated. "There is no question about that," he
replied. "Roosevelt will not be nomi
nated." Roosevelt Men Talk Bolt.
Delegates to the convention, in antici
pation of the coining to Chicago of Col
onel Roosevelt and a history making
episode in American politics, today went
back to the first nomination of Abraham
Lincoln in 1860, in efforts to find a paral
lel for the fight being waged here.
Roosevelt men, kept at a" high pitch by
frequent conferences and mas meetings,
in which their leaders attacked the ac
tions of the national committee with bit
terness, pointed to the death of the old
whig party as their theory of what may
happen In Chicago next week.
Taft leaders, declaring that the action
of the national committee in seating the
Roosevelt delegates from Missouri was
Indicative of its fairness, laughed at the
predictions of Colonel Roosevelt's fol
lowers and the continual talk of a bolt.
The Roosevelt managers today an
nounced that if all the remaining con
tests before the national committee are
decided in favor of President Taft he will
lack fourteen votes of the number neces
sary to nominate. These figures and
others compiled at botfv Tft and Roose
velt headquarters brought the situation
down to a point where discussion of a
deadlock and ' possible '''dark horse"
candidate loomed large.
Figures of Roosevelt Men.
Colonel Roosevelt's leaders further de
clared that as the situation now stands
the Taft forces actually count less than
ten votes in their favor. Others insisted
the yesterday's developments in seat
ing Roosevelt delegates from Missouri
left the president eleven short of a bare
majority on the temporary roll.
The fight for the uninstructed delegates,
the southern delegates and the thirty
Fix La Follette delegates from Wiscon
sin and North Dakota today becane In
tense. Every possible argument is be
ing used by the campaign managers on
both sides to get the advantage in these
cjuarters.
The Roosevelt men directed ,an effort
toward the southern delegates in attempt
ing to make them believe that they would
represent an absolutely certain majority
against President Taft's side, both as to
the nomination and matters pertaining to
organization of the convention.
As a result of the tightening, of the
Taft-Roosevelt lines, the La Follette dele
gation looms larger than ever as a strate
gic force and in the calculations of the
managers of the other camps It ranks
a close second to the southern and unin
structed vote in the convention.
Flirting with La Follette.
It was pointed out that if President
Taft is not in control of the convention
from start to finish, La Follette will hold
the balance of power. The question of de
bate among leaders was whether or not
this possible balance would be used.
Roosevelt leaders frankly said they ex
pected the aid of the La Follette strength
in a combination to defeat United States
Senator Elihu Root as temporary chair
man. To this end the Roosevelt forces
have suggested that they would be will
ing to support any candidate for the tem
porary chairmanship that the La Follette
men might choose.
Waller T. Houser, Senator La Follette's
campaign manager, today, however, re
peated his assertions to the effect that
the La Follette delegation would posi
tively avoid all combinations of any char
acter with any other candidate. Mr.
Houser declared that the La Follette or
ganization Is looking ahead only to the
senator's political future and the success
of the policies which he has advocated
in his fight through the various state
primaries.
William Barnes, Jr., of New York, in cal
culations tabulated personally, announced
that President Taft would have 57 votes
on the temporary roll call of the con
vention. If this claim be found correct
v, hen the national committee compiles the
Hearing of contests tomorrow the presi
dent would have a majority on paper of

Committee Waits on Contests
Early Adjournment Because Cases Were Not Ready to Present
Idaho Proxy on ProceedingSr-Nebraska Delegates
Called to Meet on Monday.
BV VICTOR nOSE WATER.
Editor of The Bee and Chairman Republican National Committee.
CHICAGO, June 14 -(Special Telegram.)
The committee session grinding on con
tests was comparatively short today, in
fact the shortest since we have been
sitting. The early adjournment is ex
plained, as is also the adjournment of
yesterday, on the ground that the con
testants and their attorneys for the cases
on call were not ready to take them
up, and that if time were allowed they
might by agreement arrange to consoli
date them and thus get through with
them more quickly than without the
delay. The only contests passed on were
those from Oklahoma and Tennessee
arising from dual factional organizations,
the question being which should be rec
ognized as regular. Here, as in most
cases of this kind, the evidence is con
flicting and contradictory and largely a
matter of preponderlng weight. During
the hearings this morning A. R. Cruzen,
formerly well known in Nebraska politics,
but now residing in Idaho, from which
he comes as a delegate, sat as a proxy
for Senator Borah.
"I am glad I had this opportunity to
come In here," said Mr. Cruzen, who
by the way, is a red hot Roosevelt man.
"People outside have a very mistaken
notion of how your proceedings are being
conducted, and do not understand that
there are two sides, where merits may
be nearly evenly balanced. I do not be
lieve there would be much criticism if
people could see and hear for them
selves as I am doing.
The substitution of proxies ontinues,
although chiefly on the Roosevelt side,
where the star proxy is Francis G.
Heney, who acts as if the position of
Committeeman rfom South Dakota, be
longed to him, and he had only to loan
It to its owner, Thomas Thorson, when
he did not want to use it himself. Mr.
Heney, however, has tamed down notice
MORE CONTESTS SETTLED
Ruling is Against Roosevelt Dele
gations in Three Districts.
ROW OVER OKLAHOMA CASE
Taft Delegates in Third District
Are Seated After Acrimonious
Discussion Lasting- Two
Honrs.
CHICAGO, June 14.-Eight delegates
designated, as supporters of President
Taft were declared entitled to seafs in
the republican national convention by
the national committee today as the net
results of Its hearings of contests prior
to 12:30 p. m. Four of these two each
from the Third district of Oklahoma and
the Second district of Tennessee were
victorious over contesting Roosevelt
delegations.
The republican national committee post
poned until tomorrow the Texas, Vir
ginia and Washington contest hearings.
The committee adjourned at 2:50 until
9 o'clock tomorrow morning.
Contests from the First South Carolina
and First Tennessee districts involved
factional fights between Taft adherents,
no Roosevelt men appearing as claimants
for the seats. The two contests involv
ing issues between Taft and Roosevelt
supporters were decided by viva voce
votes, the Roosevelt members of the
committee being unable to obtain a roll
call. In both cases the question at issue
involved the regularity of rival conven
tions. Walter L. Houser, campaign manager
for Senator La Follette held a seat in
the national committee's meeting today
representing Committeeman Alfred T.
Rogers of Wisconsin.
Nearly two hours' of acrimonious argu
ment this morning had as its net result
the transfer of the two delegates from a
single Oklahoma district, the Third, from
the "contested" to the T8aft column. The
Issue hinged upon the regularity of rival
conventions held at Tulsa, the Roosevelt
delegates appearing as contestants. No
roll call was taken, the decision being
by viva voce vote.
Oklahoma Case Taken Up.
The republican national committee was
called to order at 9:20 a. m. with thirty
members present. It immediately began
consideration of the contest In the Third
district pf Oklahoma.
A. A. Davidson, appearing for the
Roosevelt contestant, said the question
as to which set of delegates should be
seated on the legality of two conventions
held at Tulsa on the same day. With a
majority of delegates declared for Roose
velt, he said the convention was held
according to the call. Sixteen of the
mineteen counties were represented by
361 delegates, declared Mr. Davidson.
. "The Taft faction has not even a tech
nicality to stand upon," he said. "Re
alizing a majority of the voters were for
Roosevelt, the' Taft men decided to hold a
convention of their own. They went to
a place not designated in the call. We
sent a photographer to take a picture of
their convention and the photographer
was kicked out In their convention only
J20 persons, including spectators were
present." v
Roosevelt Chairman Deposed.
Joseph A. Gill, heading the Taft delega
tion, declared that just before the com
mittee met at Tulsa, on March 14, the
committee "deposed" its chairman, W.
S. Cochran, who favored Roosevelt, "be
cause of his arbitrary and irregular rul
ings and because he had changed his
residence and was no longer a member
of the committee." Six other Roosevelt
men also were excluded because their
proxies were not acceptable, he said.
"The bolters proceeded to hold a con
vention in the opera house contrary to
the official call," declared Mr. GUI.
i "This meeting bad no temporary roU of
delegates prepared by the congressional
committee and had no credentials front
the several counties."
The question involved was as to which
of the two conventions In Tulsa complied
with th. call. Francis J. Heney, holding
a proxy, asked Mr. Gill whether it was
the custom to designate the place at
which the convention was to be held.
Mr. Gill replied that in this instance the
(Contlnuea un Page Five.)
ably and is neither so boisterous, nor
so superlative, he was a few days ago.
Unfortunately, he cannot retain himself
from assuming the role of prosecuting
attorney, while presumed to be sitting
as a juror, and undertaking to cross
examine counsel under pretense of ask
ing for information. After ejaculating
Interrogations in long succession th)s
morning, he sought consent to attack
"just one more question," which re
solved itslef into a series of about a
dozen questions. I could not pass the
temptation, when he sat down to say,
"Mr. Heney having concluded his Just
one question, the chair now recognises
Mr. Lowden," and the laugh was on
him.
The expectation is that the contest
hearings will be finished tomorrow, and
the next big Job will be the reception of
delegates and distribution of badges and
tickets. As national committeeman for
Nebraska I have Issued a call for the
delegates-elect to eet Monday morning
at 11 o'clock at the LaSalle hotel for the
purpose or organizing and agreeing on
committee representation. I have added
to the notice the information that I will
have the tickets and badges for the Ne
braska delegates ready for delivery at
that time.
The report that Colonel Roosevelt is
to appear on the ground In person is the
live topic of conversation. Incidentally
there is a rumor that he will take one
of the profles at the disposal of his cam
paign managers and himself sit in the
committee. The committeemen do not
put any stock in this last ruor, particu
larly as he could gain nothing by so
doing, but should the colonel come to
the door properly equipped with creden
tials he would be cordially welcomed and
granted all the privileges and perquisites
that the members of the committee enjoy.
Three Men Meet
Horrible Death
High in the Air
ELIZABETH. N. J., June 14.-Three
men met a horrible death high in the air
here today on a high tension electric
wire. For more than an hour their
smoking bodies remained swaying above
the street until removed by firemen.
The victims were William Willridge,
Frank Jackson and Albert Burbank, all
linemen. Willridge was adjusting a metal
cross-arm on the pole when he came in
contact with the wire. Death was al
most instantaneous. Jackson, and . Bur
bank, who were working on the pole be
low him, climbed up to his aid only to
meet death as he had. '
The tragedy occurred In the heart of
the residential section of Elizabeth, but
the horror stricken witnesses of the af

Democratic Leaders
Say Two-Thirds Eule
Will BeContinued
BALTIMORE, June 14.-DemocratIc
national committeemen gathering here
expressed the opinion today that no
moves would be made to sbrogate either
the unit rule or the rule that provides
that a two-thirds vote shall be necessary
to nominate a candidate.
"No intimation has come to me," said
National Chairman Mack today, "that
any move would be made to do away
with the unit and two-thirds rules and
as those are questions that would have
to come first before the national com
mittee It is likely that I would know
about it. The two rules will undoubtedly
continue In force during the coming con
vention." Marines in Cuba
Prepare for Attack
HAVANA, June 14.-The United
States marines stationed at El Cobre,
ten miles west of Santiago, have thrown
up entrenchments and are well prepared
to resist any attack.
The Cuban gunboat Balre arrived here
today bringing as prisoners .Gregorio
Surin, a noted negro leader, and ten
others.
The United States transport Caesar ar
rived off Santiago today and trans
ferred supplies to the gunboat Paducah
for the marines stationed in that vicin
ity. The mayor of Palma Sorriano reports
that the conditions there are most seri
ous. Over 4,000 persons have taken refuge
in the town where they are sleeping in
the streets and are absolutely destitute.
The conditions, according to the mayor,
recall the horrors of the reconcentrado
days, when General Weyler was endeav
oring to crush the Cuban revolution.

Votes Four Vears Ago,
NEW YORK, June H-Theodore
Roosevelt announced this afternoon that
he had decided to go to Chicago per
sonally to lead his fight for the nomi
nation. He will leave New Tork at 5-30
this afternoon over the New Tork Cen
tral. Colonel Roosevelt said he was going
to Chicago in response to the unanimous
demand of the Roosevelt delegates. He
will be accompanied only by Regis H.
Post, former governor of Porto Rico.
"Is your decision the result of what
you have heard from Cuicago today?"
the colonel was asked.
"I have heard a good deal," he re
sponded. "All I've got to say," he con
tinued, by way of explaining his action,
"is this:
'"Several delegates have been In to see
me here today and I have received
countless telegrams. The absolutely
unanimous demand of the delegates who
have already reached Chicago is that I
go. They say that the action of the na
tional committee in the California, the
Arizona, the Indiana? the Kentucky
cases is such as to make the issue abso
lutely clear as to whether the people
have the right to make their own nomi
natlon or whether a small knot, of profes
sional politicians Is to be permitted to
steal that right from them.
DeleKates Want Hfin.
"The Roosevelt delegates demand that
I go to Chicago not as a candidate, but
because for the time being I stand as
representing the principles for which the
rank and file of the republican party
have overwhelmingly decided In the
states where they have had the oppor
tunity to express their wishes at pri
maries." "These states where the rank and file
of the republicans have declared for mo
and for the principles which I represent
include those casting about two-thirds of
the electoral vote that was cast in the
last two elections for the republican can
didate for president. In the primary elec
tions in these states Mr. Taft nas ob
tained between one-seventh and one
eighth of the delegates.
"The delegates who thus represent tho
people themselves feel that the people
have declared themselves beyond the pos
sibility o? misrepresentation, and they are
not In the mood to see the victory stolen."
Colonel Uoosevelt will reach Chicago at
4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon and the ex
pectation is that he will be In the con
vention city before the national commit
tee has disposed of all Its work In de
ciding contests. It was said by some of

President Taft Says
There Will Bo No
Third Candidate
WASHINGTON, June 14.-"There will
be no third candidate. All the Informa
tion I get is that I will be nominated On
the first ballot with votes to spare."
That was President Taft's answer t
day to a visitor who asked his position
in regard to a compromise candidate at
the republican national convention.
Friends of the president In Washington
today said that If he were not renomU
nated he would decidedly oppose either
Senator Cummins or Senator La Follet'e
as compromise candidates. The presi
dent's opposition to these two senators
his friends said, would be based largely
on their attitude toward the courts and
the recall of Judges and decisions.
Some of Mr. 'raft's friends declared to
day that If he were contronted with the
necessity of naming his preference for a
compromise candidate they believed he
would turn to some man like Senator
Root of New York or former Vice Presi
dent C. W. Fairbanks of Indiana. U
became known today that Mr. Falrbanl'
Is the president's choice for chairman of

"KANKAKEE, III., June 11, 1912,-To

If a colored man, a stranger, has been
in your city. A man of marked appear
ance, easy address, a gambler, very cun
ning. He Is eslly Identified by this fact
he has a crooked wrist, which makes
his hand quite stiff. If any negro has
been In any places near to this crime,
I will have many, things to say to you.
If no such negro has been seen, no harm
is done. We had a family In this county
destroyed Just In the nianne ryour
family was destroyed knocked In the
head with an ax. This colored man
murdered them. He makes a business of
killing families. He is not Insane. He
f reuuently comes to Chicago and stays
around the Twenty-second street negro
settlement. Ordinarily he moves around
the mines and miners near Pittsburgh.
He will kill a family as easily as he
would kill a nest of rates.

Marshal Horton has answered the above
