When at 11:15 o'clock this morn

national republican convention be
gan, Senator Root announced the un

ninu aunuuuceu an agreement to ai-
low three hours for debate of these i
motions and asked if there was ob- i
jection. There was not.
It had been agreed in advance that
there should be no preliminary poiins
of order against the Roosevelt mo
tion, the Taft forces agreeing to
fight the matter out before the dele
gates. Governor Hadley began, an ex
planation of the situation confront
ing the convention." He' reviewed the
events of yesterday leading up to the
ruling of National Committee Chair
man Rosewater, which quashed the
Hadley motion to purge the tempo
"We could have met immediately
and forcibly this arbitrary and un
parliamentary ruling," said Hadley,
and he was roundly cheered. "We
could have forcibly Insisted on call
ing the roll on that mr.tion and we
could have forcibly tak'en control.
Instead we chose to wait patiently
Governor Hadley did not attempt
to gii into details of the various con
tested cases, saying he would leave
that to other speakers, lie read the
indictment of the national committee
as uttered by Colonel Koosevelt in
his Monday night speech and it called
out a big cheer.
He then read a statement from 14
members of the national committee
protesting against the action of the
majority in seating many ( f the dele
gates, particularly in the California.
Texas and Washington cases.
Hadley was given th- closest at
tention throughout. la closing, he
declared tiit'.t when the vote on the
stlbroll came he would contend thai
on the question submitted only the
votes of these delegates who.se seats
were net contested be allowed to bal
lot. A number of speakers appeared
on both sides of the question, the de
bate waxing hotter and hotter as tne
lime allowed for argument proceed
ed. James E. Watson concluded the
argument against the Hadley motion.
He was interrupted several times and
there were renewed calls for Hadley.
The governor appeared and then be-

a series of impromptu parades. Call- i
fornia began to shout, "We want j
Teddy," and in a moment the whole '
auditorium was a moving mass of i
men with banners, yelling at the tops
of their voices, the galleries aiding
in the noise.

Friends I'ay Last ResM-cts to Wil
A large crowd of frienr'
at the family residence on Pine street
at 10 o'clock this miming to pay
their last sad respects to the memory
of William Patterson, a public ser
vant, whose departure from the ac-
tiviries of life is a matter of uni
versal sorrow. The services were
conducted by the Christian Science
'church at the house, and by the A.
O. V. W. and Knights of Pythias r.t
the grave in Ashland cemetery.
William Patterson waf born near j
' LaFayette, .-vshlnnd county. Ohio,
.May in. M5. He was the fourth in
a family of 14, the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Joshua Patterson of Ashland'
, county, Ohio. In 162 the family.
; consisting of the parents and tight
children, moved to this valley and
! settled on a farm north of this city
I and near to Talent. William live.! i
! on tlie farm with his father until:
1)66. when he began siwmilihig on;
his own responsibility, erecting a1
.mill on Wagner creek, and later con-1
: ducting a similar enterprise on Big
; Butte creek. Subsequently he re-1
i liu ved to the North I'mpqua river i
in Douglass county and ran a mill j
I tor a couple of years, then sold out
I and came to Ashland, where he fol
j lowed the carpenter's and builder's
trade for several years. He also be
'caine interested in mining in Siskiyou
county, California, giving up these
combined interests to become super
I intendent of the Ashland waterworks
Mr. Patterson was married to Miss
Annie E. Clift in Jacksonville March
11. 1874. He Is survived by a widow
jand six children, one child having
died in infancy. They are: Mrs. R.
R. Robley of Portland. Mrs. Jessie
Percival of Independence. Mrs. Elsie
Churchman. Mrs. W. C. Mitchell.
Harold and Margaret of this city.
He also leaves two sisters and six
brothers, three of whom reside in
'this vicinity, Mrs. James Thornton
j and Sylvester Patterson of Ashland
and Joshua Patterson. f( rinerly
county commissioner, of Talent,
i In the death of Mr. Patterson the
i community loses a valuable servant.
During the twelve years that he has
i been superintendent of tl- Ashland
I waterworks he Iras given eminent sat
isfaction and to him is largely due
' the present excellent water system
j that Ashland enjoys. I'nder his con
jtrol the works have been enlarged,
j new machinery placed, and additions
i made that have, been invaluable for
the equalization of water distribu
tion. Kind, genial, always ready to
(lend a helping hand for the hetter-
nient of his fellow-man. Mr. Patter
son commanded a host of friends.
Devoted to his duty, careful and
painstaking, he administered the af
fairs of the city placed in his hands
In a way that made him almost indis-
pensable to the system. His position
was a responsible one nnd he gave it
the best possible service, lu an of
ficial capacity, in his home and on
the street he will be greatly missed,

versally popular. He was a member

every door and in every aisle wen;
distinguishing features of the sceno

due to a general expectation for tu
mult nous scenes, "from the drop of
the hat" at the opening of tlo' eon
vi nt ion, w as apparent on all sides,
the police as nervous as any one else.
It was difficult even tor people with
the proper tickets, including news
Pi'iieriueii. to get into the hall. Out
side a tremendous mob of people;
gathered, making difficult the prog
ress of ticket holders toward the.
door. People began streaming iuU
the Coliseum several hours befom
the convention opened. The hand
got to work and the first tune played
was. "My Country. "I'is of Thee."
Immediately after the invocation.
Governor Hadley of Missouri, thej
Roosevelt floor leader, rose to n
question of information, taking th
platform amid gnat cheering. Wat
sou of Indiana followed to the plat-'

if the omi'orary nil had been pre

' Then- was hissing and cheering.
I Hoiisei- of Wisconsin got to his
j feet and said Wisconsin iid La Fol
jlette did not present any candidate
i for temporary chairman. He said
that McGovern's candidacy was not
representative of La Fol.'ette.
Houser's announcement, as La Fol
lette's manager, created great excite
ment. McGovern's nomination was evi
dently a plan of the Roosevelt forces
to gel support from the Wisconsin
man's following without first secur
ing his endorsement.
Chairman Rosewater, at this point,
ordered the roll call amid great con
fusion, and the secretary began to
call the states alphabet ically, with
the result that Root was elected with
a substantial majority.
Scenes of riot and confusion char
acterized the session, hisses, groans
and cheers being mingled almost In
cessantly. Each attempt on the part
of adherents of either sid to present
the name of his candidate or to speak
in support of him was greeted by a
of commingling shouts and
s. Manv speeches were almost
completely drowned in the din, so
keen is the feeling that exists be
tween the rival factions.
