CHICAGO, June 19. Some of the friend
of Mr. Roosevelt were not so certain that
fthe colonel would not have some other
f clan In his mind which mlKht unset
things. That the colonel has taken abso
lute, dominating command of the situa
tion seems a certainty. He issued orders
like an 'officer in the field, and today
had. messengers rushing about with mes
sages for .the Roosevelt leaders, who came
in haste, to his quarters. -
"The colonel is absolute boss," said one
of the Roosevelt lieutenants this morn
lng- "We know of no change in the cam
paign plans up to date, but he can change
them at any moment."
That-Roosevelt will order a withdrawal
of his delegates from the convention if
the credentials committee fails to unseat
the protested eighty delegates Included
in the appeal submitted by Governor Had
ley was the most discussed proposition
around headquarters Just before the con
vention opened for the second day.- On
every hand it was agreed that this de
velopment was certain to follow approval
of the- national committee's action. It
was also expressed as another certainty
that Roosevelt could not take fromth
convention some of bis pledged delegates
Roosevelt's chief lieutenants, including
Governors Hadley , and Deneen. served
notice today that they will not .sanction
a bolt under any circumstances. The
made no secret of their position In this
respect and announced, It to a number
of newspaper men.. ..., . t ' ; " '
Governor Hadley said after the concen
tration of the leaders just before going
to Mr. Roosevelt's rooms, that he thought
there would be no change in the conven
tion program of the Roosevelt forces.
"We are going right ahead fighting every
inch of the ground" said Governor Had
ley. "It is the present intention to re
new immediately today our demand Jthat
the convention be purged of the fraudu
lent delegates until the credentials com
mittee can act. I know "of nothing to
interfere with that program."

Brief of the Proceedings of the Republican Convention's Second Day . . ;
E.LIHU ROOT, chairman pro tem
pore of the republican national
convention, met with difficulty in call
ing the delegates to order Wednesday
morning, and had to call on the police
to aid in the securing of order. Half
an hour was "consumed, and it was
11:30 when prayer was said.
The unfinished business of the con
vention, Governor Hadley's resolution
to "purge" the roll call of ninety-two
names of delegates seated by the na
tional committee as the result of con
test hearings, and to seat in their steady
ninety-two Roosevelt delegates, was
taken up at once, the debate being
opened by Governor Hadley. In sup
port of his resolution Governor Had
ley presented the protest signed by
the fourteen Roosevelt members of the
national committee, and quoted
nel Koosevelt's criticism of the com
mittee in his speech on Monday night.

Editor of The Be and Chairman of the Republican National Convention.
CHICAGO, June lft-(Sreclal Teleerami
The second day of the big convention,
liket he first, has been devoted entirely
to clearing the decks for action. . So
much time has been consumed in this
that my suggestion of yesterday that the
convention will reach over Into Saturday
may now be put down as an almost safe
prediction. Today, as yesterday, there
was only one test vote, as between the
rival forces, and it showed up even better
for the Taft people than before. Governor
Hadley again presented .the ,. resolution
which I had ruled out of order prior to
the election of a temporary chairman,
and It was allowed to come up for de
bate, being, properly presented at this
tlme,-but voted own tna motion to-'
a.hl. . . . t -
The debate, however, gave the' convene
tlon a chance to .learn that there are
two sides to every on of the contests
on which the national committee divided,
and that the decision. of the committee
as to .which delegate's, name should be
put on the temporary roll was not necea
sarily arbitrary or fraudulent as . the
Roosevelt people had been claiming, but.
quite to the . contrary, might well chal
lenge the Judgment of fair-minded men.
The vote tabling the Hadley resolution
simply means that the regular order that
has prevailed In previous conventions of
sending contests to the credentials com
mittee, made up in the usual way of one
representative to each sitting delega
tion, will be lollowed with the title to
questioned seats determined by accept
ance or rejection of minority or majority
The Roosevelt people tried their fav
orite game of spectacularism today, but
they did not accomplish anything by It
From where I was sitting it could be
plainly seen that the whole affair was
pre-arranged and pulled off under per
sonal supervision of Senator Dixon, the
Roosevelt campaign manager, who de
ployed the actors and actresses and gave
them their cues, it certainly produced a
tremendous bedlam of noise and confusion
which at last wore itself out, and when
the vote was tallied notwithstanding the
fact- that Wisconsin went back on 1U
agreement to divide half and half, the

., CHICAGO,. June U.-In a test of
strength at the organization of the cre

further argument. At this time the
convention was in the utmost disorder.

rough-ridera were further behind by six
votes than they were the day before.
Incidentally I was gratified to note that
Senator Root repeated and reinforced
two o fthe rulings I had made while in
the chair on parlalmentary points of
order. He enforced the requirement
that where a delegate Is absent the name
0 fthe alternate shall b called, which ap
pears opposite that of the principal on
the credentials as filled. This is the
point which raised such an outcry from
VBoss" Flinn and his 4)unch when I ' in
sisted on the same thing. Chairman Root
likewise ruled that every delegate, on the
temporary roll had all the rlehts ot an
other delegate, even; though, a contest
been- made- against ftlm.' - ,
Vindicating the calling r the full roll
which I had ordered, and on which -the
Vote on temporary chairman was taken,
In my mall this morning I received this
note "from Prof. Albert Bushnen Hart,
who Is one of the Roosevelt leaders and
delegate-at-large from Massachusetts:
"CHICAGO, June IS, 1912,-Dear Mr.
Rose water: I want to express my sense
of your courtesy in facilitating my few
remarks today. And in general, I think
the feeling of the convention, both sides,
was that you presided with sonspicuous
dignity, good temper and fairness.
"My colleagues are shaken from their
belief that the chairman of the national
committee is an escaped convict with a
concealed ball and chain; but I don't
believe that your people understand our
feeling of rage and deprecation? especially
over Washington and California, But I
can't find a sense of antagonism toward
you personally, and some day I hope I
shall have a chance to understand your
point of view; Just now well, we are
friends anyhow. Yours cordially,
"ALBERT BUSHNELL HART."
To this I am replying that I appreciate
his testimonial to my fairness in the
chair equally with the unanimous vote of
the committee at the conclusion of the
sessions, over which I had presided
through many trying ordeals for nearly
two weeks. This letter of Professor Hart's

CHICAGO, June 19.-The second day of
the fifteenth republican national con
vention opened with ten hours of stub
born fighting ahead and the outcome of
the contest for the presidential nomina
tion no nearer the eye than it was yes
terday. Four major , possibilities loomed
large in the far ground. These were the
nomination of Colonel Boosevelt, nomina
tion of a third candidate and the possi
bility of a seoond or double convention.
Scores of men could be found In the
convention crowds who would back any
one of these possibilities with hard cash.
