CONVENTION VERY EXCITING
Ex-Governors Crane and Long, Sena
tor Lodge and Colonel Benton,
Ail Roosevelt Men, Are
Delegates to Chicago.
BOSTON, April IB. Canadian reciproc
ity -and Eugene Foss, Its foremost cham
pion In this section of New England,
were decisively defeated today In the Re
publican State Convention called to elect
four delegates at large to the Repub
lican National Convention at - Chicago.
President Roosevelt was indorsed. Mr.
Foss, who, before the convention, had
announced his Intention of offering a
reciprocity resolution, and of contesting
as a candidate for delegate-at-large on
this issue, carried out his plan. His reso
lution was overwhelmingly voted down,
and he was rejected as a delegate by a
vote of ITS to 1161 for his nearest con
testant. At a time when, to all appearances, a
considerable sentiment in the convention
was with Mr. Foss, Senator Lodge took
the platform and by an eloquent address
stemmed the tide and carried the dele
gates with him.
Foss, in, offering his resolution, argued
that the Republican party in Massachu
setts was in danger of defeat unless some
thing was done to save it. He said that
a decrease of five per cent in the Repub
lican vote of the state would place it in
the Democratic column, and he contended
that Canadian reciprocity would avert
this danger. When he concluded he was
accorded applause, hearty and prolonged.
Senator Lodge, supporting the platform
reported by the resolution committee of
the convention, urged harmony and be
fore he had been speaking a great while
the audience was cheering at almost
When the chairman called for a vote
on the substitute of Mr. Foss' reciproc
ity plank, a few scattered voices de
clared in favor of the substitution, but
when the vote of those opposed was
called a thunderous ''no" shook the walls
of the auditorium. Immediately after
ward the original platform was adopted.
The following delegates-at-large were
chosen: Ex-Governor W. Murray Crane.
Senator Lodge, ex-Governor John D.
Long and Colonel E. C. .Benton.
When the convention had been called
to order by Major Thomas Talbot, the
temporary chairman, Attorney-General
Herbert Parker was Introduced as per
manent chairman. Mr. Parker made an
address, which occupied an hour in its
delivery, and then the platform was pre
sented. THE PLATFORM.
Those Who Want Canadian Reci
procity Must Furnish Details.
BOSTON, April 15. Following is a
synopsis of the platform adopted by the
State Republican Convention today:
"Our monetary system Is now on such
a stable and satisfactory basis that men
look back In wonder and amazement when
they recall the wild vagaries and still
wilder Democratic theories In 1895."
Approval of the administration of the
Civil Service laws Is expressed, and the
responsibilities and duties of this country
toward the people of Porto Rico and the
Philippine Islands are declared to have
been met In the most liberal and beneficial
A free and fair ballot is demanded,
which it is declared to be the duty of tho
Federal Government to safeguard.
Concerning the tariff, the platform in
sists upon the maintenance of the pro
tection principle, "but," it continues, "we
recognize that particular tariff schedules
are neither sacred nor immutable. Rates
of duty maybe altered when changed
conditions demand their alteration, but no
revision should be undertaken unless It
is clear that the benefit will more than
compensate the inevitable disturbance of
business which attends an' revision of
tariff schedules. Nor can it safely be
intrusted to any other than the party of
The principles of reciprocity as enunci
ated In the National Republican platform
of 1900 are reaffirmed. On this subject, the
resolutions say further:
"Every effort to that end. has hitherto
been made by the Republican party. Reci
procity with Canada Is a mere phrasu
until the concessions offered oc the one
side and demanded on the other are
stated In detail. No administration or
party can legislate or negotiate a mere
catch-word into substance. Those -who
demand reciprocity with Canada should
furnish details if they desire action, al
ways remembering that no trade can be
a good trade unless both parties are bene
The Administration and Congress are
commended for having assured the con
struction of the Panama Canal. The
Sherman anti-trust law under a Republi
can Executive has been tested and en
forced, "and the fact established that no
condition detrimental to the public wel
fare can arise under a people's govern
ment that cannot be checked by Consti
Indorsement of Roosevelt.
Gratification at the selection of William
H. Moody as Secretary of the Navy Is
expressed, and the platform in conclusion
"The Republicans of Massachusetts give
their hearty and total Indorsement of the
Administration of President Roosevelt
Called to this high office under the most
trying circumstances, he assumed its re

full accord with its best traditions. His

"At a time when it almost seemed as
though law had ceased to be effective
and legislation had reached Its limit In
the great coal strike crisis of 1902-03,
actuated by pure and patriotic motives
and desirous only of the public good, he
brought all the power of his great office

hood, to the solution of that problem

of our public affairs; his wise and patri

difficult problems, mark him as equal to
his responsibilities and faithful to his
obligations. Fearless in the discharge of
his duty, with an eye single to the public
welfare, the representative of the "best
Ideals in American manhood, he may be
assured that Republican Massachusetts
will give him her full confidence and
