, The fact that Becker was to appear for
arraignment attracted an immense crowd
to the criminal courts building. Among
them were many gamblers and characters

became so dense that the corridors were

Colunrl Roosevelt Appears.
It was 12:47 when Chairman Beveridge
announced the arrival of Colonel Roose

for the delegate and the galleries. They
Jumped to their feet and cheered. A
minute later the colonel appeared on the
stage almost as It by magic.
In the midst of the deafening din, he
stepped on to the Insulated speaking
platform under the big sounding board.
He smiled his appreciation of the dem
onstration and bpwed to the right and
Jeft. With a broad grin he waved greet
ings to friends on the stage and floor.
The delegates meantime stood on their
chairs and cheered until the rafters rang.
They waved flags and bandanas In a
perfect riot of colors.
The Grand Army of the Republic fife

catch note from the speech of Senator

Some one threw the colonel a red ban

up In the band gallery the musician
struck up "Onward, Christian Soldiers."
Ftom the delegates the words of the
hymn rose in a confused murmur. The
colonel etepped forward, raised both
hands and led the singing, chanting the
words himself. Mrs. Sunderland of Los
Angeles, an elderly woman, briskly scaled
the platform and was cordially greeted
by the colonel.
Two Alabama delegates, one a union

They were J. C. Holllngsworth, ex

mediately Julius T. Mitchell of Rhode
Island a-nd other eastern negroes joined
in crying that the deciding - ballot had
been cast by a questionable proxy on the
committee. Fairly sputtering indignation,
the negroes announced they would carry
the matter to Colonel Roosevelt for a
personal ruling on the point
The vote on the Mississippi case came
in a secret session of the committee at
8 o'clock this morning, a few hours
after both white and negro delegations
from Florida had been barred.
"This matter Is not settled yet," said
the Mississippi negroes when they learned
of the decision of the credentials com
mittee. "We will lay the matter before
Colonel Roosevelt himself today and ,if
necessary we will carry the fight to' the
floor of the convention." '
The negroes were indignant, and excit
ably voluble throughout the sessions of
the committee, .which began at .S a'clocU
last night and continued until nearly
daybreak. The Mississippi contest was
the last to be taken up and it was be

mitteeman B. F. Fridge was equivalent
to disfranchising the negro.
The Fridge delegation was elected at a
convention the call to which, was ad
dressed to "white" citizens of Mississippi.
The negroes were not allowed to take
part. Fridge told the committee that the
call was - written for him by J,ohn M.
Parker of Louisiana, who had urged him
to accept the. place as Roosevelt com
mitteeman for Mississippi.
Several of the negroes in the ousted dele
gation were among the delegates to the

by Colonel Roosevelt and deserted the
republican convention In Chicago to at
tend the first progressive meeting, when
plans were made for the third party.
Hletory of Case.
They had issued a call for a progressive
convention in Mississippi before Fridge
was selected as national committeeman.
At the Instance of Senator Dixon, they
said, they withdrew this call,' to allow
Fridge to assume charge.' But when they
discovered that Fridge's call was ad
dressed only to "white" voters they called
another conventnon and elected ten white
men and ten negroes to cast Mississippi's
vote in the progressive convention.
The negroes bitterly complained that
the limiting of the Fridge convention to
"white", citizens invalidated , that gath
ering. , .' ... ... ... ; .
They declared that the seating of the
Fridge delegates would mean a . "lily
vhlte" progressive party in the south.
After a lengthy debate Committeeman
Richard W. Child of Massachusetts, pro
posed a motion seating the Fridge dele
gates, but disavowing the Fridge plan
of calling a "white" convention.
At the end of an hour many of the
committee had quit the room. A vote
was taken. It was so close that half a
dozen committeemen scurried out to
round up the absent members,. But t'hey
had departed for bed. The vote was dis
regarded and another vote was taken.
This time by a vote of 17 to Is, the fol
lowing resolution was adopted:
Resolved, That we regard the Fridge
delegates as entitled to seats in thin
convention, but disavow that part of the
call containing the word .t'white." We

"Yes. but will he come back?"
A lot of Omaha society folks worrying
over that question are undergoing mental
shivers in midsummer in fear that they
will be without furs next winter.
The question worries them because
they had confided their garments to Yost,
the furrier, for safe-keeping,, and when
his storage warehouse suffered some
months ago from fire, the coats, Jackets

his part. That was several weeks ago,
and repeated Inquiries at his place of
business in the Baldrige-Wead building
