Never Grows Old In Spirit .
Col. M. A. Bates, editor of the
Plattsmoulh Journal, recently
celebrated his 70th birthday. The
Colonel says he is 70 years young
and those who know him best w
attest to the truthfulness of the
expression. He has indeed seen
many years, but is one of those
who never grow old in spirit
For half a century the Colonel has
been in the newspaper harness,
and today he may be found at his
desk in the Journal office dishing
up just the kind of stuff that his
readers like to read. The writer
has known Col. Bates for many
years.-Here's hoping that he may
live many years to come, but never
grow old. oLuisville Courier.

Chicago, June 17. The Roosevelt
plans for the tight to be made in tha
Republican national convention Tues
day were finally adopted at a confer
ence of the Roosevelt leaders under
the direction of the colonel himself.
The Roosevelt supporters have de
termlned that the convention shall not
be organized with the contested dole
gates seated by the national commit
tee, and to this end they have deter
mined to demand a roll call on tha
first proposition that comes up. This
undoubtedly will come on the right of
Governor Johnson of California ta
cast the twenty-six votes of that 8 tat
on tho question of temporary chair
man. This right will be questioned by tha
two Taft delegates from the Fourth.

which the Roosevelt loaders havs
planned. They will move at once that
the temporary roll as made up by th
national committee bo rejected an
that a substitute roll prepared by tha
Roosevelt loaders bo adopted. Tht
roll will Include the seventy to eighty
delegates which Colonel Roosevelt
olalma were stolen from him and
which will be sufficient to give the
Roosevelt forces control of the con
vention. Under this plan of procedure suh
rattling the contests to the convention
en bloc none of the delegates affect'
ed by the contests could vote. Under
customary rules, passing on the eoa
tests, state by state, one contested;
state might pass upon the right of an
other. Revolutionary Plan.
The Roosevelt plan Is a revolution

by the Taft leaders, but It will senr

quickly to the fronf, and this Is what
the Roosevelt leaders desire.
Vlotor Rosewater, chairman of that
national committee, will call tbe con

will not entertain the motion to con
sider tbe substitute list of delegates,
but will Insist on waiting for tho rs
port of the committee on credentials;
which ordinarily would not come an
for consideration until Wednesday.

Confers With Rosewater.
Colonel Roosevelt conferred for
more than an hour with Chatrmaa
Rosewater, tho interview being ar
ranged through E. Mont Felly of Kaav
ms City, a mutual friend. Mr. Roe
water explained to the colonel that in
making rulings In the national com
mittee on contest cases ho had fol
lowed the parliamentary practice that
had always governed the deliberation
of that body.
Colonel Roosevelt directed sever
critiolsm against Individual members
of tho committee, but Mr. Rosewator
Is said to have escaped these stric
tures. Finally the oolonel demanded
to know what Mr. Rosewater'a atti
tude would be when the Roosevelt's
forces proposed to substitute a new
temporary roll for that prepared by
tho committee.
"The rules of tho committee will
apply," answered Mr. Rosewater.
When asked If he would not consent
to submit the question to the conven
tion, Mr. Rosewater is eald to have
asked for time In which to consider
the questjon. It la expected he will
