Nor were any guns pulled, or knives

Incited by the dire predictions of
death and disaster that had been scat
tered abroad, the populace, as re pre
seated by those who had pull enough to
get tickets, came early to the hall and
resolutely turned down their thumbs as
evidence they neither desired nor would
allow quarter. They expected a riot to
start at the moment the flashlight pic
ture was taken, and In a sense they
were gratified, for a riot did start a
riot of conversation and so-called ora

It was early observed that the antl
Taft delegates had been Instructed to
watch Hadley. They had been told to
do what Hadley did. And they fol

ley had begun turning handsprings
there is no doubt that antl-Taft dele
gates would have engaged simultane

exercise. Hadley.sultably attired In
long frock coat and wearing an air of
Intense earnestness and devotion to
duty, clambered on the stage at the
exact moment the gavel fell, which was
noon. He was followed by James Wat
son, of Indiana, former Republican
whip of the House of Representatives,
who wore a light chocolate confection
and had his hair neatly frizzed. Mr-
Watson appeared for the defendant.
Mr. Hadley waited with much dignity
while the Invocation was said, and then
started the proceedings by moving to
substitute a temporary roll which he
had for the temporary roll he seemed
aulte certain It was In the mind of
Chairman Rosewater to propose. Mr.
Watson Inserted a definite point
order and Mr. Hadley spoke and was
followed by ex-Governor Fort, of - New
Jersey, who also had some thoughts In
his system, it appeared. Then appeared
Sereuo E. Payne, whose name is at
tached to the justly celebrated tarlft
bill, which Mr. Taft Indorsed so highly.
Mr. Parse Fears Chaos.
It was gathered from Mr. Payne's
remarks that he was deeply concerned
lest chaos ensue. At any rate he said
"chaos" some 67 tiroes in 11 minutes.
Mr. Watson oleaded for his side of It

bis pocket and drew forth his ruling
on the point of order, which he pru

and had had neatly typewritten, with

The upshot of it was that Mr. Had-
ley's temporary roll, which contained
the names of some 80 patriotic gentle
men the National committee had care
lessly left off its temporary roll, was
rejected, and nominations for tempor
ary chairman were all the rage. Young
Mr. Cochems, of Milwaukee, who bursts
into the limelight once each four years
and warns the Republican party it
must not do these things to Robert M.
Follette, and then sits moodily by
and watches the Republicans proceed
in utter disregard to bis warning,
hopped lightly on the stage and named
Governor McGovern. of Wisconsin, for
Immediately thereafter Leader Had
ley moved forward and made a force
ful speech in favor of somebody. Mr.
Hadley Inadvertently refrained from
mentioning whom he was for during or
at- the end of his declamation, and
hastily returned to say .-the person he
had In mind was a chap named Mc
Gowan or McGovern, or something like
that. This gave the required cue to
the antl-Taft people, who cheered lond
'y and asked one another: "Who In
thunder Is McGowan?"
- Oratory Proceeds Monotonously,
Job Hedges, of New York, alleged, in
full view of the audience, that the man
needed for temporary chairman by that
convention was Senator Ellhu Root, and
time wore on. So did various orators,
Including one colored brother who
looked like Bob Fttzslmmons. dyed a
neat tan, and who started mildly by
saying "E. "Root Is the greatest states
man in the world" and worked up from
that point gradually. Towards the last
Mr. Houser, the manager for La Fol
lette, strode to the. front and announced
that while the antl-Taft people had
taken up McGovern, the true friends of
La Follette were not In on it, Mr. La
Follette refusing to do anything but
hew to the line, letting the McGoverns
fall where they might. Houser said the
antl-Taft people had reached in and
pilfered McGovern from their very
midst without consulting the La Fol
lette men, who were much vexed at
this high-handed proceeding. Mr.
Cochems followed in his warning spe
cialty. This time he warned all Wis
consin men not to vote for Root.
A few preliminaries were arranged
and the cheering announcement was
made that the roll would be called, not
by states, but by individual delegates,
thus allowing many patriots who had
not previously enjoyed that delicious
sensation, that proud privilege of hear
ing their names spoken aloud before an
anornate assembly of fellow citizens.
Rollcall Consumes Three Hoar.
The rollcall proceeded monotonously.

an occasional negro delegate so far for

too, was bogus as a china egg. Indeed,
it was a most orderly and deliberate
proceeding. . ,
Mr. Root won. All this time he had
been sitting on the stage with a long
and scholarly speech concealed about
him. and he moved eagerly forward
when Chairman Rosewater gave him
the signal and began to get out from
under his thoughts. It may be true, as
the attenuated negro speaker said, that
Mr. Root is the greatest statesman in
the world, but I am here to state, with
out fear of successful contradiction, he
Is not the greatest orator in the world.
In fact, there are a vast number of
Journeyman orators orating around for
small wages who can give him a run

allusions and 14 tuneful tropec and beat
him to a whisper. Mr. Root has a high
and throaty voice, and while his
thoughts are couched in perfect English
and are of -a high grade, as thoughts,
they do not penetrate more than 16 feet
from Mr. Root while he Is enunciating
them. Still, a considerable of those

keynote and cheered at appropriate In
tervals. , . .,
The day made clear that the Roose
velt partisans do not intend to stand
for a nomination made by a list of del
egates that contains, they assert, 80
names that are not entitled to be there.
What amounted to notice was served
on the convention by Johnson - and
Heney, of California: by Fort and by
Hadley, that the Roosevelt men will
bolt at such times as they select, if
this roll is permitted to remain as the
convention's roll and these 80 men are
kept on it. - Tne Roosevelt contention
Is that these 86 men are fraudulently
on the roll, that they are not entitled
to nominate or take any other part in
the convention and that any nomina
tion in which they participate must
necessarily be tainted and not accept--

Hence it seems reasonably -certain

There was some caustic criticism of
