WASHINGTON, "July " 24. Specif lo de
nial of the claims of the Roosevelt man
agers that their candidate had bean im
properly deprived. Qf. delegate, in jtb Chi'
cago convention in the contested cases,
brought either before the national or
credentials committee, was made in a
speech delivered -in -the- noose today by
Representative Monde 11 of Wyoming, who
was a member of the credentials com
mittee. He characterised the contests aa
"mere bluffs," without' shadow 'of sub
stantiation. , - ;
"The claim that Colonel Roosevelt wal
denied the nomination, at Chicago .through
the larceny ot delegates," Mr. Mondeli
eald, "waa not only expected to con
tribute directly to the third party move
ment, but was expected to contribute even
more potently by furnishing Indirectly the
excuse for the most impudent and revo
lutionary plan of political larceny ever
conceived. - It is proposed to steal the
livery and secure the benefits of repub
lican state organizations, while at the
same time repudiating the party and can
didates.' It is difficult to conceive a mora
shameless proposal of pure piracy than
Contests Pare Fiction.
"As admitted by the Roosevelt man
agers themselves, they started out delib
erately at the beginning of the pre-con
ventlon campaign to create contests," said
Mr. MondelL , "A. large number ot these
contests were pure fiction, the contesting
delegations claiming to be elected at con
ventkms, which, if held at all, were held
a month or two after the regular conven
tions. Many of the contests which arose
at the time conventions were held were
k the result of prearranged bolts based 00

FIGHT AT BULLM00SE MEET
Strenuous Proceedings at Yeiser's
DELEGATES NAMES ARE READ
Dr. Henry Operates Steam Roller

John O. reiser's bull moose gathering
at Washington hall Tuusday night will go
down In history as on of the most re
markable assemblages ever set before the
public Mr. Yelser denominated the gath
ering a "mass convention of republicans,"
called for the specific purpose of nam
ing a delegation to the state convention
at Lincoln that should not be tainted
with "bossism.' and which should con
tain no man who Is even suspected of
favoring the re-election of President Taft
It went through as per Mr, Yeiser's care
fully laid plans, but the program wss ex
tended somewhat and included, among
other things, a free-for-all fight
' -proceed with Proa-ram. '
The Yelser program started aa soon as
a handful of the trusted buU moosers had
entered the halL By actual count, ninety
seven were present when Dr. W. O. Henry
was chosen chairman of the meeting and
proceeded with the reading of a short
typewritten speech on the great achieve
ments of he republican party. Dr. Henry
proved himself an excellent steam roller
engineer by refusing to call for the nega
tive vote on any question. The Yelser
program called for a committee of three
on order of business, a committee of five
on selection of names of delegates and a
committee of seven to name a new county
committee. In less than fifteen minutes
these committees were appointed, retired
and. returned, with their reports, and the
reports were declared adopted. The com
mittee on delegates showed" the greatest
oelerity in action of any, It requiring but
three minutes to select the ninety-four
names of the delegates and to honor eight
others by naming them as alternate."
' By th time the committee on delegates
had returned with its list of names,
neatly typewritten, the attendance at the
mass meeting had swollen to about
300 and ' evidence of interruption
was In sight Dr. Henry had al
ready neglected to call for the negative
vote on two questions, and the clamor
from the floor was becoming insistent
Dave Shanahan was endeavoring to se
cure recognition, but the chair could not
see him. And here is where the fight
started : ' -: '' ' -
Young; Goes After saaaahan.
Dr. George Young, former city veteri
narian, undertook to squelch Shanahan,
and in a minute a dozen fights were go
ing on in ' different parts of the hall.
The committee started to read its list of
delegates, but Yelser stopped this by tell
ing the chairman to declare the report
adopted without reading. This was done,
arid Henry declared the - meeting . Ad
journed and left th stag while Yelser
was calling fpthe delegates present to
assemble in a room below. Mr.' Yelser
doesn't say how th delegates came to
know they were selected, as the report

though' the meeting ! could not be dis
After the Y else rites had left the hall
order was quickly restored and the meet
ing was organized by th election of
David Shanahan as chairman and M. J.
Greevey as secretary. Then the dele
gates, selected at the regular republican
convention last Saturday were formally
approved, as 'well as the resolutions
adopted at that convention.
: Henry Reads a Speech.
Dr. W. O. Henry was appointed chair
man and Henry Genau was named secre.
tary. Dr. Henry then read a speech from
manuscript, recalling the history of the
republican party sine its inception in
1854, its fundamental principles and the
record of the party for the last several
years, which record he said had upheld
the - high ' principles of Lincoln and the
party of Lincoln's time.
There was a lull In the meeting at this
point and two collectors were appointed
to raise $25 to pay for the rent ot the
Chairman- Henry then appointed, upon
motion of C. D. Hutchison, a committee

End of Race in Naval
.Construction Far Off
PARIS, July 21.-That the world is not
yet on the eve of the cessation of th
struggle between Great Britain and Ger
many for naval supremacy is the preva
lent opinion in France after careful study
of the recent speech by Winston Spencer
Churchill In the House of Commons. ,
The continuation of the rivalry between
those two countries causes a note ot re
gret here, but there is an Inclination to
believe that If It must go on France
should learn a lesson from England's pro'
cedure and increase Its navy. "
The Matin, commenting on the subject,
says it is in a position to declare that
Italy and Austria at the Instigation of
Germany are about to build additional
uperdreadnaughts, in regard , to which
nothing has been permitted to transpire.
Italy is to. construct six of these vessels,
each of 20,000 tons displacement and cap
able of steaming at a speed of twenty-five
knots, while Austria is to, build three.
each of them displacing 28,000 tons. The
newspaper continues: ,
tThe fulfillment of this program will
destroy th present naval equilibrium in
th Mediterranean and give a big ad
vantage to tlx triple a!Uance."v

Reparation Case is
Still Being Heard
Evidence; befofifc IhV examiner; fbr the
Interstate Commerce commission Is still
being taken to decide whether the lumber
mill owners of the South or the lumber
buyers of this state are entitled to the
reparation for the excessive freight rtes
the railroads charged oh.' southern pine
from 1908 to 1910. Dozens of , represen
tatlves of the southern mills have been
heard and the testimony of Nebraska
lunfber dealers Is now being taken.
E. H. Howland, representing the Boyer
Van Kuran Lumber company of Omaha
has been on .the witness stand. ' He ex
hiblted the bills of lading for -the lumber
the company received from the southern
mills during those years and duplicate
copies of the expense bills. He testified
that the freight had been paid by the
lumber dealers here and had been taken
out of the Invoice In remitting to the mill
operators of the south. This Is In effect
the testimony of all who have taken the
stand, but the question still hinges largely
on whether or not the mill men raised
their Invoices sufficiently on the lumber
to cover the extra ltt cents the railroads
were charging for freight during th two
years in which the. commission has said
the freight rate was too high. ,
