of New York, for vice-president.
President Taft received 561 of the
1078 votes in the convention, or 21
more than a majority.
The result of the ballot was: Taft
561, Roosevelt 107, La Follette 41,
Cummins 17, Hughes, 2, absent 6,
present, but not voting, 344.
The result of the ballot for vice-
president w as: Sherman 597, Borah
21, Merriam 20, Hadley 14, Beveridge
2, Gillett 1, absent 71, present, but
not voting, 852. The decision of the
Roosevelt people, under direction of
their leader, to refrain from voting,
left no other candidate near th<* presi
dent. The announcement of the Taft
victory wps greeted with cheering
from his adherents and groans and
hisses from the opposition.
When it became absolutely certain
early today that Mr. Taft would be
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
1908. All others dropped from the race
and Mr. Sherman was the only candi
date regularly placed before the con
vention. A motion from New Hamp
shire to make the nomination by ac
clamation was declared out of order.
There were many scattering votes on
the roll call that ensued.
The convention, amid much confus
ion, adjourned sine die.
At no time was there any indication
of a walkout of Roosevelt delegates.
They expressed their revolt by silence.
Chicago, June 22. — Senator Root
made chairman of the committee to
notify President Taft.
Devine, of Colorado, to head vice-
presidential notification committee.
Roosevelt appealed to the people of all
sections, regardless of party affilia
tions, to stand with the founders of
the new party, one of whose cardinal
principles, he said, was to be “ Thou
shalt not steal.’’
The informal nomination of Colonel
Roosevelt was said to be chiefly for
the purpose of effecting a temporary
organization. Beginning tomorrow,
when a call is to be issued for a state
convention in Illinois, the work of or
ganization will be pushed forward rap
idly, state by state.
At a later time, probably in August,
Temporary organization made per a national convention will be held.
