PROGRESSIVES IN FULLGONTROL Test Comss on Contest tc: . Permanent Chairman. MAJORITY OVER TWO HUNDRED. Dolliver Speaks Briefly and In Spirit of Good Humor Minority Report Containing Praise of President Taft . Falls to B Substituted Deyoa Named for Stat, Superintendent CONVENTION RESULTS Republican Iowa wrote herself X vigorously progressive at a con-T . ...... In. i V 1iVi uud In iinntar nmut T of the time. Senators Cummins and Dolliver and the insurgent delegation at Washington were enthusiastically Indorsed. The new tariff law was branded 4 as a failure In the light of the party pledge of 1908. President Taft received the most tepid of lukewarm Indorse ments. A sop of harmony was flung out In the Indorsement of the admin istration of Governor Carroll. An attempt to use the "steam roller" to make the state central committee overwhelmingly pro-4 gresslve was tailed off, presuma-1 bly at hint of Senator Cummins. T Senator Cummins was tempo- J rary chairman; Senator Dolliver permanent chairman. The progressive majority ranged close to 300 on every question. The resolutions committee was progressive, six to five. The foregoing Is a synopsis of ..the convention events. To It may" J ; be added cheers and Jeers, ap-" pmuso ann nisses, music and howls of discord. Des Molues, Aug. 4. The Republic an state convention was so completely ia control of the progressive element that it lost much of Us Interest to the mass of the visitors. When the cau cuses were held It was disclosed thut the progressives hud control of six of the cloven, though In one there was a peculiar fight, which left the matter in some doubt. When the convention came up to the first test vote It showed that the progressive majority was upwurds of 235. The test came when two reports were made for permanent chulnnon, a majority report for Senator Dolliver od a minority report for J. C. Mubry of Albla. On the vote Dolliver re ceived 831 votes and Mubry 649. Ten Votes went for Dolliver that might have been counted for the minority candidate, but for a desire to aid a candidacy for superintendent. Senator Dolliver spoke briefly and In good humor, but did not discuss Is sues to any extent. The convention gave to both Dolliver uud Cummins geuerous applause, and especially when reference was made to Roose velt the convention became wild with excitement. There was no show of disapproval of anything said or done, but the discussions were in the main in good temper. TI10 platform com mittee spent much tlmo In preparing the two reports and in the meantime the convention disposed of nil other business. Judges Deemer and Evans were renominated by acclamation. On the first ballot for superintendent the vote was: I loyoe, 3i4; Rlggs, 120',,; Welty. 2 4 1 v. ; Mlnnlnger, 214; I.nrk, ir.SKj; Hralnerd. 130Vj; Pickett, 187'i. On the second ballot Deyoe led nnd a greut many changes were made to Deyoe until he was nominated. Platform Flaht. Then came the platform fight. The majority report presented the progres sive view and wns read' by Robert lfealy of Fort Dodgo. Then Colonel Hepburn read the minority report, containing an extensive 'Indorsement of President Taft. Moth reMrts re ceived much npplnusn from the differ ent sections of tho house. There was no debate. When roll cull came tho convention refused to substitute the minority for tho majority report by a vote of to 815. The platform was then adopted. During the balloting a picture of Tnft was shown nnd It was innde the occasion for n great show of approval. Ijitcr n picture of Roosevelt wns shown In lllio innnner nnd the other crowd did the applauding. An effort was made to force n vote on the parts of tho resolution report, nd' It finally got Into tho form of a vote to sustain the claim Mint the adoption fr the report could not ho divided. There was another faction division, with the usual result. The platform was finally ndopted on a nhort faction vote. Following the adoption of the plat form Just as presented by the maor Ity, tho convention elected the mem bers of the stute committee, who were reported from the caucuses. At no time during tho day was there tiny nngry talk nnd everything wns ne cepted as final. Few speeches were mnde, both sides contenting ithein Helves with a show of strength on tho roll calls. A. M. Deyoe of Hancock county, the cnndldnto for stnto super intendent, is regarded as nn nble man, Who will fill the office well. During the week Taft clubs decided upon continuing their organization during the next two years and they will maintain a headquarters and do tome work Jn the campaign for some 9f the candidates for congress. The Platform. The majority report of the resolu tions committee was as follows tn the points of greatest interest. The Republicans of Iowa, through their delegates selected according to the law of the state, make the follow ing declaration of their views upon public affairs: They declare thut to deserve the continued support of the people the party should oppose by every means in Its power any political encroach ments or legislative Interference by those who seek to reap extortionate profits through the acquisition of un just privileges. They reaffirm their loyalty to the Republican national platform of 1908, and pledge themselves to do whatso ever they can to carry every purt of it into full effect. They especially em phasize their long and well settled faith In the Republican doctrine of pro tection. Its soundness and wisdom are beyond controversy and It ought to be accepted as the established policy of the nation. The last Republican na tional platform announced with e'ear ness and precision the rules for its application to imports, and when so applied it safeguards equal'y the in terests of labor and capital, and pro motes equally the wclfara of the pro ducer and the consumer. They do not recognize the revision of 1909 as a satisfactory fulfillment of the party promise. Request for Tariff Board. In order to bring the tariff law Into a complete compliance with the rule of the platform , It is necessary thut the differences between the cost of producing dutluble commodities at home and abroad should be equal'y known. Therefore they favor the crea tion of an Independent, non-partisan tariff commission, which shall be the instrumentality of congress to ascer tain the difference between the cost of production here and in other coun tries, and publish the facts so that not only congress, but the people shall be advised of the results of Its investi gations. Until such a commission is authorized they approve the effort of the president to secure the desired In formation through a board of experts employed for that purpose. They pro foundly believe that when the tariff Is again revised Its schedules should be considered so that ench subject can be deolt with upon Its own merits, nnd thus secure fair and Impnrtlnl action upon the part of congress. They indorse such efforts ns Presi dent Tnft and his advisers have mnde to fulfill the promises of the nntlonal platform and which hove been In har mony with the declarations gf this convention. Praise for Dolliver and Cummins. They commend to the nation the type of statesmanship exhibited by Scnntors Dolliver nnd Cummins, and they hcurtlly Indorse their work upon tho tariff bill, the railroad bill nnd the postal savings bill. The patriotic ef forts of our senators to protect t!te public rights from tho greed of special interests In national legislation has excited tho admiration of the country; their attempt to secure tho largest measure of equitable revision tn the tariff law wns a Republican defense of the people's welfare; their Insist ence determined largely the beneficial features of tho railroad law, and It Is with pride thut the Republlcons of Iowa recognize the contribution of their chosen representatives to tho welfare of the nation. They commend the notion of the house of representatives In revising Its rules, glvlni; to the Individual members n greater freedom of expres sion and Initiative In the discharge of his duty, and they Indorse the contri butions of Iowa's representatives tc this most Important reform. The Republicans of Iowa are tho best Judges of the Republicanism of tho senators nnd representatives whom they send to congress nnd they resent any nttempt to exclude any of thm from the honors nnd privileges which properly attach to membership In the Republican party. On State Affairs. Tn the administration of stnte af fairs, n high degree of efficiency on the pnrt of Governor Carroll nnd of all of his ofndnl associates Justifies the continued confidence of the people In Republican control. Our Institu tions have been enlarged In Reope and Improved In chnructer nnd usefulness, while the levy for state support Is be ing reduced. All the Republican can didates for stnte nnd congressional of fice regularly nominated have to their credit such excellent public service and promise thut we call upon nil Re publicans to rally to their support nnd see that every man on the ticket is triumphantly elected. Infringement Suit Dismissed. Dubuque, la., Aug. 4. Sustaining the contention of tho defendant that tho patentee of an Improvement of liners for centrifugal bowls wns not the Inventor nnd hence tho defendnnt could not bo held for Infringement, Judge Reed In the federal court de cided tho case of the Delnval Sop- nrntor compnny of New Jersey agnlnst the Iowa Separator company of Water loo, la., in favor of the latter.
