The Diellmlnary demonstrations for
Roosevelt began early in the afternoon.
The first spark was kindled by Senator
Borah of Idaho, who addressed a multi-
tude of Roosevelt delegates in the Floren

eloquent speech flatly declared that the
' only salvation of the republican party
was Theodore Roosevelt.

enthusiasts and lifted to the chairman's

has been chosen as the candidate of th.9
Roosevelt forces for temporary chairman
made his position in this contest as clear
"No matter what this national commit
tee does," the senator declared, "the ra
publican party is going to be saved.
"This is not going to be another
Titanic wreck,' as some of the Taft lead
ers seem to think. They have an Idea
that they can get out in the boats and
we will sink. They are greatly mistaken.
We are .going to hit the national com
mittee iceberg head-on and the repub
lican party Is not -suing to be scuttled."
Throughout the day discussion of the
former president's sudden trip from
Oyster Bay to Chicago held the fore
ground to the practical exclusion of other
As the hour for the arrival of the
Roosevelt train came near, interest and
excitement in many quarters became in
tense. A number of hours before the
train was scheduled to enter the La Salle
street station, hundreds of people had
gathered, at that point, determined to
hold their vantage ground until they had
seen Colonel Roosevelt. In the waiting
throng were many delegates to the con
vention. But these were not the only ones on
hand to greet the former president. Bat
Masterson, one-time resident of the Black
Hills, South Dakota, and now of New
York, together with a number of his
friends and a crowd of western admir
ers of Colonel Roosevelt who reached
Chicago last night, impatiently awaited
the train from the east.
All indications pointed to a lively
demonstration by the Roosevelt adherents
tonight. The leaders had planned the
demonstration for Monday night's mass
meeting at Chicago's largest theater, but
it appeared impossible to restrain the en
thusiastic delegations until that time.

Personal Characteristics of the

Editor of The Bee and Chairman
CHICAGO, June 15.-(Special Telegram.)
In view of the universal interest fo-
cused on the impending national conven
tion soon to be staged at the Coliseum
I take it that a special interest attaches
to the personalities of the prominent fig
ures looming up In the' political turmoil
whose names are appearing fro mday to
day in all the accounts of the proceed
ings. There are two big political camps
here, passing over the two smaller ones
without disrespect, the one marhaling the
Taft forces,-and the other the Roosevelt
phalanx. In between the lines are many
men of more or less distinction, and it
seems strangely peculiar that I hould
know most of them by long acquaintance,
and many of them by intimate personal
Presiding over the Taft headquarters is
Congressman William B. McKinley, a
quiet, unostentatious, bald-headed, blue
eyed, little man, really boyish in manner.
Although quite a little heavier than I
am he Is Just my height, and I will tell
you how I happened to know. One of
McCutcheon'a cartoons the other day por
trayed a row of Taft strategists, among
whom he, for some inexpainable reason,
gave me a place, and depicted me as the
smallest one of all. Mrs. Rosewater
wanted to know if these men looked any
thing like that. "There may be some re
semblance," I said, "but there Is one
gross misrepresentation. I am ure I am
no shorter than Mr. McKinley. You come
right down stairs with me and I'll prove
it." So down we went, and I measured
up, and there was not a difference of a
hairsbreadth. Four years ago when I
was directing the publicity work for the
national campaign Mr. McKinley was at
the head of the congressional campaign
committee, and we were frequently in
touch on publicity matters. I learned
then, and have had the lesson no wre
lnforced, that he has prodigious capacity
as a political tactician, and is a man of
cool, calculating judgment and good or
The chief factotum in the Roosevelt
movement. Senator Joseph M. Dixon, was
four years ago conducting the speakers'
bureau in rooms adjoining those where I
held forth with the literary department.
Senator Dixon is a native of North Caro
lina, whose residence in Montana has not
eliminated his southern traits. He is al
ways talkative, and sometimes excitable,
but I do not know a man whose steady,
sober Judgment I would rather have. Wo
used to consult together a great deal dur
ing the last presidential battle, and I have
never been to Washington since without
being cordially received by him. He Is
smooth shaven and dark, impressive and
earnest, and, needless to add, widely ac
quainted and well informed.
The much-heralded contest expert,
Ormsby McHarg, is another member of
the staff who graced our western division
headquarters four years ago. McHarg is
a lawyer, who first bobbed up politically
in North Dakota, where he was once a
member of the legislature, which elected
a United States senator who opened the
door of national politics to him. He is a
tall, big eyed, sharp featured fellow with I
iron gray hair and clear-toned, musical
voice, which he raises to a high pitch
when he wants to say something forcibly.
He had charge of the contests in 1908 on
behalf of the Taft people, and astonished
the committee at that time by the mas
terly manner in which he had prepared
them, so perfect that the opposition could
scarce find a flaw. During the campaign
later he did what we called "scout work,"
broadening his familiarity with political
conditions all over the country. He was
made assistant secretary of commerce
and labor when President Taft took of
fice as an accommodation to Secretary
Nagei, it being stipulated that he would
hold but six months, although he was
afterwards prevailed on to remain a little
longer. I explain this because it Is only
fair to him that it be known that he did
ndt expect to hold the position, and that
his antagonism to the president now is
not due to separation from the pay roll.
It is worth noting, however, that even the
best lawyer cannot make a good contest
case out of nothing, and that McHarg's
falldown this time is due chiefly to the
fact that his cases have not had any legs
to stand on.
Iu charge of the 'opposing contestants
is former Senator Charles Dick of Ohio.
He is a veteran In the political army. I
was reading a biography of Mark Hanna
the other day from which I learned that
Colonel Dick was the confidential agent
sent south and west during the pre
liminary campaign in 1596 to string the
wires by which the delegations were to
be brought in for William McKinley. He
j evidently did a good job then, and the
experience he gained under Hanna has

proved a great political asset. Ex-Senator
Dick has piercing eyes and long
fluffy gray hair, combed back from a
receding forehead. He is imperturbable,
with a seraphic smile, and a straight
forward way of presenting his facts in
logical sequence that goes right to the
meat of the proposition. Senator Dick
had the poor hand dealt out of the con
test deck four years ago when McHarg
held the winning cards, whereas in this
new game today the sides are completely
reversed, and Dick has been playing the
strong hand with firmness and precision.
Within the committee sessions the
recognized Taft leader Is Senator William
Murray Crane. One of the newspaper
men asked me the other day why the
committee adjourned unexpectedly, and
I answered "It is because Senator Crane
made the motion." Senator Crane is
great food for the cartoonists and carica
turists. He is long and slender, soft of
Voice, and lithe of movement, aq
elongated face, with a tuft of brown hair
like a topknot, and a faint - mustache,
visible only at close range.' Senator,,
Crane's system is to work through others
'whom he prompts preferring not to as
sert himself . in verbal bouts or spec
tacular demonstrations. He Impresses
one as a man who knows what he Is
trying to do. and expects those who are
co-operating to that end to act on his
advice without wasting time In asking
Another strong Taft man is Harry S-
New, who is conspicuous by reason of
the sugar-loaf straight-brimmed black
felt hat which he wears on all occa
sions. Colonel New was chairman of
t"he national committee four years ago,
filling out an unexpired term, and this
year Is again in charge of convention

which is a .job of the size of a general
manager. Talking together a few even
ings ago It was recalled between us
that he and I are serving as members
or the republican national committee on
which our fathers both served before us.
Whether there are others who come
within this category is quite problematic.
Colonel New is a man of few words,
and not given to speechifying, but he
has quick decision, and when he talks
makes himself plainly understood. He is
also a blue-eyed blonde, and a tireless
worker, who keeps at It early and late.
On the other side of the room sits a
trio of great quesetioners. Head and
shoulders above all is Senator William
. Borah of Idaho. He is of medium
height, broad-shouldered and heavy-set,
with a shock of thock brown hair, alto
gether not unlike a foot ball player In
appearance, smoofh shaven, usually with
partly opened mouth, but strong jaw that
comes down with a thud when lie orates.
Senator Borah has been doing the heavy
work on the line, really arguing the case
for the Roosevelt side under pretense of
asking questions whenever the retained
lawyers have impotently fallen down.
i The senator will make a long statement
Lf fact and conclusions and then, to
come within the rule, will wind up with
"That's so, is it not?" I nsarly toik
his breath away on one occasion when
he had argued In this fashion for nearly
five minutes and forgotten his postscript,
by asking. "Does the senator Intend that I
as a question?"
Also distinguishing himself as a human I
question-box is Frank B. Kellogg, popu- j
larly known as the "trust buster." Mr. i
Kellogg Is small of stature and fine i
facial features. His carefully combed
gray hair against his pale blue eyes and
fresh complexion alone offsets a dls-
tinctly boyish appearance. In demeanor !
he Is seriousness Itself, lapsing fre-
quently Into an attitude of thoughtful j
study. He has a peculiar pose when j
asking ciue.stions, leaning forward and j
pointing with gold-rimmed round eye- I
glasses folded back, which pop open
when he makes a mere vigorous gesture.
The third eiuorultst Is Francis J. Heney,
the great San Francisco lawyer, who Is
of an entirely different type. He not
only knows lie Is a great lawyer, but
seems to be afraid that other people
may not know It unless he tells them re
peatedly how he put Abe Ruef behind
the bars. He Is a shrewd "looking,
smooth faced, long nose, large mouthed,
bespectacled individual. He gives the
impresion of wearing a constant smirk,
which, however, Is natural and not ar
tificial. He burst into the committee
room with a loud, defiant note, suggest
ing his own superiority, but seemed In
time to realize that there were other
men of nb:iit there fx. and that the

"That's what we want," a man in the

"That's what we want, I know. One

"Is there any state platform among
those which have been adopted," he was
asked, "which has met your approval in
considering planks for your platform?"
"Well, I have read the Pennsylvania
platform," the colonel responded, "and It
Is mighty good." The platform adopted
in Pennsylvania advocates many of the
doctrines urged by Colonel Roosevelt, In
cluding a plank which represents the colo
nel's views on the courts.
Some of Colonel Roosevelt's lieutenants
have been credited with the statement
that the Roosevelt platform has been
completed in the rough.

The colonel has said nothing on the sub
ject except that a declaration In favor of
woman's suffrage would be included.
It was learned, however, that thu plat
form was framed at one of the extended
conferences which the colonel has held at
Sagamore Hill recently, after which there I
came the unanimous declaration of the
participants that there was nothing to

"I recognize only one form of regularity
loyalty to the masses of the party and
not to the bosses."
The colonel declined to comment upon
a Chicago dispatch that Charles Banks,
a Roosevelt delegate from Mississippi,
had written a letter to Congressman Mr
Kinley, In which he said he was return

to defray the traveling expenses of some
of the delegates from Mississippi.
"Is that so? Well, well," was Colonel

existed for the place of the eight delegates-at-large.
