The affidavits showed, he said, that a

had opposed negro voters or had declined
to have negroes participate in the con

seat the eight Taft delegates from the

of "noes" came from the Roosevelt sid

Taft Delegates Contestants.
The Fifth Mississippi district contest
was called next. In the Fifth Mississippi
district the Taft delegates were the on
testants. The Taft attorneys announced
they would rest their case on affidavit
and records purporting to show that their
delegates were regularly elected.
A. P. Hill of Beaton, appeared for the
Roosevelt delegates. "The negro voters
and many other Roosevelt supporters
were deliberately ejected from the con

said. "The Roosevelt men thereupsn went
across tbe street and held another con

The two delegates from the Fifth Missis

The Missouri contests, taken up next,
were filed by the Taft forces and In
volved ths four votes of the delegates-at-
large and two delegates each from the
Flrat, Third, Fifth, Seventh and Four
teenth districts, fourteen in all.
Governor Hadley's delegation at large
numbered eight, selected by the state
convention to cast a half vote each at
tbe Chicago convention. The Taft dele
gation at large, headed by John C. Black,
Included four members, the number spe
cified by the call for the Chicago con
vention. The case of the delegates-at-large
opened the fight. Grant Gillespie, attor
ney for the contesting Taft delegates,
took up the history of the Missouri state
convention, at which Governor Hadley's
RoOsevcir delegation was selected. The
Taft forces, he-ald,r had controlled -the
state committee by 18 to 14 and had de

Hartley nnd .Nngel Asiree.
A new committee Including Governor
Hadley and Secretary Nagel, President
Taft's representative, then took up the
contents, he said, and an agreement was
reached to send four Taft and four
Roosevelt men without instructions to
cast Missouri's four votes at large, in '
the Chicago convention. This agreement
was endorsed by the republican state
committee, he said, by a vote of 30 to 2, j
and it was expected it would be followed
In the state convention.
Governor Hadley was made permanent
chairman of the state convention. The
resolutions then offered, he said, made no
reference to Colonel Roosevelt.
At this point, declared Mr. Gillespie.
Chairman Hadley asked the convention
to "indulge" the resolutions committee a
tew minutes while it corrected a "mis
understanding" in the resolutions. The
convention proceeded to elect olght dele
gates and their alternates.
Chairman Hadley left the chair, said
Mr. Gillespie, and went Into the room
where the resolutions committee was
still working. When the committee fin
ally rame in with its report, he said, it
was "5 or 6 o'clock In the morning and
most of the delegates had gone home."
"There were about 200 of the 1,152 dele
gates then present," said Mr. Gillespie.
"It had been generally understood the
convention should proceed peaceably to
Endorsement of Roosevelt.
The ' redrawn resolutions, explained
Gillespie, referred in complimentary
terms to Colonel Roosevelt, but did not
instruct for him. The resolution to In
struct for Roosevelt was offered from
the floor, he said, when the majority of
the delegates had gone.

Governor Hadley declared "paper con

forces, in all effort to control the state

and that these had been referred to a
committee of six with Secretary Nagel
and himself aa "advisers."
"They importuned us to make some
agreement there to divide the state dele
gation," continued Governor Hadley. "I
declined absolutely to consider any such
matter. I told them that the state con
ventlon was the only body that could
settle any such questions."
He declared the subcommittee had ap

the contests, were regarded as "frivolous,
