Snapped Just as He Has Made Important Ruling.
MSsBiiee - sftoaf-ffl:
to renominate Vies President Sherman.
Allcott's speech did not last three min
utes and was received without enthusi
asm. Harry Daugherty, for Ohio, merely
moved a second for Sherman's nomi
nation. The call of states weut on without
further nominations until Pennsylvania
was reached. Then C. Tyson Krats rose
in his place.
"On behalf of Pennsylvania I nominate
Boles Penrose," he shouted. There was
no second. '
There were no other nominations and
the call of the roll on the vice presidential
nomination was begun at 9:45 p. m.
Idaho was the first state that failed
to support Sherman. Its eight votes went
to Governor Hadley of Missouri.
When the roll was called in Illinois
R. IL. McCormlck voted for Howard
Gillette, a Chicago banker.
"Just a matter of friendship," said Mc
Cormlck when asked who Gillette was.

The vote of six delegates from Vermont
cast at 10:10 o'clock gave Sherman one
over the 540 necessary.
A resolution appointing Senator Root
chairman of the committee to notify the
president of his nomination and naming
Thomas Devlne of Colorado chairman of
the committee to notify the vice presi
dent was passed while the delegates hur
ried from the hall. .' In the closing
moments of the convention a resolution
was passed under the gavel, giving the
national committee the power to fill all
vacancies and empowering the committee
to declare vacant the seat of any mem
ber who refused to support the nominees
of this convention.
Former Representative Hemenway of
Indiana Introduced the resolution.
At 10:J9 o'clock Delegate Estabrook of
New Hampshire moved that the conven
tion adjourn and the motion was adopted.
Tha delegates tiled out In silence. As
the last of the delegates left the hall, the
band played "Praise Ood from Whom All
. Last Day in Demit.
Not more than 100 delegates were in
their seats at 9:45 o'clock. The galleries
were practically empty and the pros
pects were that It would be well after the
hour set for convening before the con
vention eettled down to tha work of what
the leaders hoped to make tbe last ses
sion. Not a single official had put in
an appearance except Sergeant-at-Arma
Stone, who was busy conferring with his
assistants and the convention police.
There was talk of an attempt at
Roosevelt demonstration. Chairman Root
Issued orders to the eergeant-at-arms
and tbe police that no delegations were
to be allowed to march Into the hall.
Orders were alo received to bar ail
Jt was 10:43 o'clock when Chairman
Root dropped his gavel. Tbe floor was
In confusion and the aisles were crowded
with delegates seeking their seats.
No sooner fiad Root announced that
the convention was opened than a
stentorian voice from the galleries
shouted, "All aboard."

Chairman Root, when some semblance
of quiet had been secured. Introduced the
Rev. John Wesley Hill of New York,
who opened the proceedings with prayer.
As he concluded some one in the gallery

short shrill blasts as each contest was
disposed of. The reports Were brought

which ' there were no mlnotfty reports

The Washington cases came next and
the convention sobered down under ad
monition from Chairman Root
"Mr. Chairman," said B, H. Howard, a j
negro delegate from Mississippi, 1 make
the point of order that the steam roller
Is exceeding the speed limit"
There was a gale of laughter, renewed
when Chairman Root said he pw pre
pared to rule on tbe point saying: "The
point of order Is well taken."
When the laughter had subsided. Sen
ator Root added:
'The Justification ! that we have
some hope of starting tome on Sunday,"
and the statement brought forth a cheer.
In order that an adverse vote might not
throw out the entire state delegation,
the committee reported the Washington
delegates-at-large and each district del
egation separately. The same course, It
was said, would be followed In consider
ing the other contests.
Considering the other contests, the ma
jority report held that the Roosevelt
delegates-at-large were elected by a bolt
ing convention and an Illegal primary.
Sullivan of Ohio' presented a minority
report holding that the Taft contest was
'a trumped up" case.
Sullivan moved to substitute the minor
ity' report for the majority report and
Watson moved to table the motion.
And Everybody Sines.
A conference was held on the platform
to arrange tor debate on the motion and
bedlam broke loose on th e floor.

"What about the speed limit?"

Starting somewhere in the rear, the
crowd began to sing "Nearer, My God,
to Thee," and it swelled into a chorus,
followed by "Lead, Kindly Light" and
Amid the Encircling Gloom."
Another chorus, across the way, caught
the spirit and began to sing "John
Brown's Body," altering the final lines
of the chorus to: "As We Go Rolling On."
Hugh T. Halbert of Minnesota spoke in
support of the minority report when quiet
was restored, a limited debate having
been decided upon.
Halbert made a special plea to the
New York delegation the largest unti
structed delegation in the convention to
give their votes to tha minority report.

W. T. Dovell, a Taft delegate-at-larga,
spoke for the majority report.
; Former Governor Fort of New Jersey
made a point against Dovell's speaking
on the ground that he could not vote upon
the question of seating himself.
Everrbedy Is Surprised.
Chairman Root said that while Dovell
eould not vote he could speak in the
absence of direction to the contrary from
: This ended the debate and the motion to
lay on the table was put and carried by
a viva voce vote. A motion to put the
Taft delegates on the permanent roll
also was carried without a roll call
Thle was a distinct surprise. The Roose
velt people had been expected to demand
a line-up of delegates. The acquiescence
in the viva voce vote seemed to take
Senator Root by surprise. He hesitated,
for a long while, after saying: "The ayes
seem, to have it" before adding "the
ayas:Jiave it" : , .- a
The proceedings seemed to indicate a
complete . backdown of the Roosevelt
forces. Then came reports seating the
Taft delegates from the First, Second
and Third districts.
On each vote the gallery crowds Joined

though the volume was greater than
the volume of the "ayes," Root would
smile pleasantly and announce "the

As the Washington contests were con
cluded, "Merrily We Roll Along" and
"Rambled" were added to the vocal pro
gram. After the Washington contests had
been decided there was a lull in the pro
ceedings. Victor Rosewater, retiring chair
man of the republican national com
mittee, appeared on the floor In the midst
of the , Pennsylvania delegation, where
the delegates were making a great fuss
over him, shaking hands and patting him
on the back. It was another evidence of
the wave of good humor which had swept
over the convention since yesterday.

Shnrtlv after Senator Root had called
h convention to order Governor John
son of California, one of the Roosevelt
leaders, left the convention hall. His rea-
wui for doing so was explained in the
following statement which he gave out:

shall I consider myself In any manner
bound by its acts. Not only was a fraud

It was 2:15 p. m. when the report on
the eight delegates-at-large from Texas
was finally received. A statement In the
report that the republican sentiment In
Texas was "overwhelmingly In favor of

and guffaws. The committee favored the
Taft delegates and scored the so-called
"Cecil Lyon officeholders." It also de

There Were cries of "speech, speech,"
and Root stepped forward. It had taken
nearly five days for the committee to get
to Its permanent organization, an un

"I thank you, my friends, from the bot

ask unanimous consent that a delegate
from the state of Kansas, our republican
brother, Henry J. Allen, be permitted to

chair hears no objections.
Mr. Allen then came forward to read
the Roosevelt statement and to pronounce
the "Roosevelt valedictory." When he
announced he was about to read a "state
