cats, claiming tbo Taft members of ths
district eommlttes had bolted and or.
ganlxad an illegal convention.
Delay Not Prrmltied. '
Halbert's persistant demand for a
delay tsrmlnlnated In a motion to ad
journ for fifteen minutes. This was over
whelmlngly defsatsd and Chairman, Da
vlns than ordered ths sergeant-at-arms
to compel Halbert to take his seat. Ths
latter did so reluctantly.
Hundley, the Alabama Roosevelt at
torney, protested against ths preaenos
as a member of the committee of Alex S.
Birch of Alabama, who had participated
before in the Alabama arguments. Birch
said he would not vote on the eass.
R. It. McCormlck of Illinois, who had
corns into ths room, asked permlaalon to
designate another man to represent him
during the day. This was granted after
it was made clear that "only a delegate
to ths national convention" elected from
ths member's own stats could corns in
on such a proxy.
Ths Ninth Alabama contest involved
ths control of ths district commutes.
Roosevelt men claimed the Taft forces'
had bolted, while the latter claimed they
had actual control of ths committee and
that ths Robsevelt men had used an
unauthorised resignation of a Taft mem
ber in order to fill his place. Under ths
rule admitting new evidence, the Roose
velt attorneys succeeded In Introducing
an affidavit from ths Tstt secretary of
the district committee to show ths Taft
men had been bolters.

havs occupied but a half hour.' Taft lead
ers on the cas declared, however, that
they proposed to let full discussion be
hsd on all cases, since charges of "gag
rule" had been raised against thsm.
Haibert of Minnesota, before ths de
cision on ths Alabama case, said Roose
velt men favored taking the Alabama,
Washington, Tsxas and California cases
llrsctly before ths , national convention
for decision there.
Roosevelt members of ths credentials

SHERMAN, Tex.. June .-In a feud
battle between the Sharp and Waldrop
families at Sperry's Ranch, near here,
this afternoon, four persons were kUled
and two wounded. Before she was slain,
Miss Georgia Sharp killed one man and
wounded another man and his wife. v
The battle began when the Sharp
family, consisting of a!!: Georgia Sharp,
her father, L, W. Sharp, and her brother,
Walter, passed the home of the Wal
drops. Apparently both sides began firing
simultaneously. Henry Waldrop killed
Walter Sharp and his father. As they
fell Miss Georgia Sharp seised her
father's smoking magaslne rifle and took
up the battle. She killed Russell Wal
drop and then shot his parents. Prone
on the ground, Henry Waldrop returned
the fire and shot Miss Sharp. She died

Bryan Will Not Orate.
The only welcoming applause this
morning was for William Jennings Bryan,
who Is reporting the' convention for a
number of newspapers- As Mr. Bryan
moved to his seat In the press section Of
the platform, several persons in ths nai
lery cried, "Speech, speech."
Air. Bryan smiled.
After the noon adjournment Bryan held
an Informal reception over the rail of the
press section. .
When the convention took Us recess
the report was everywhere ourrent about
the Coliseum that Colonel Roosevelt would
come to the convention at 4 o'clock and
make or try to make a speech. Nobody
really knew whether It was true or not.
but it added to the excitement.
Hundreds of people settled down ta
wait in ths hall until 4 p. m.
Filing- the Coltaeam.
When the doors of the Coliseum were
again thrown open at 3 p. m., with still
two hours to spare and before the gavel
should fall, the people began to pour In
rapidly. At least 1.000 never had left
their seats at all. No man or woman who
went through that struggle tor admission
this morning could face without a qualm
the prospect of repeating it the same day
anyway. So there was a good sized au
dience all through, the long wait to hear
the band, which in iu lofty little box bet
tweeen the big flags on the north wall,
enlivened the Interval with popular music.
The heat and humidity of the day in
creased after noon and men began to
shed their coats. Thus far Chicago has
given the convention delightful coolness,
contrasting most agreeably with the
smothering humidity of the last few days
ot republican convention week tour years
As the afternoon wore the western sky
threatened a thunderstorm. .
And Then It Rained.
It began to rain sharply at I o'clock.
The crowd about the doors never budged.
A few were fortunate enough to have
umbrellas. Open skylights let rstn in
upon the people all along the center ot
the hall. On the west side the water
blew In through the windows. But, wet
or dry, nobody would take the chance ot
losing his seat
La Follette enthusiasts during the re
cess distributed hundreds ot little fans,
of material such that, rapped with a
lead pencil, would make a drum-like
noise. One side bore a picture of the Wis

were in great demand. If only because ot
