Chicago, June 2.—Frieuds of
Col. Roosevelt announced Sunday
that the first real test of strength
between their candidate and Pres

demand to be seated as the suc-
cessor of Victor Rosewater, acting
chairman of the national republi-
can committee, prior to the hear-
ing of contests by that body.
The Roosevelt managers are
prepared to make a determined
fight to have Mr. Howell seated,
and if they succeed they will de-
mand that' Borden I). Whiting of
New Jersey, Thomas Niedring-
haus of Missouri, and other na-
tional committeemen-elect chosen
either by direct primary or state
convention, be seated.
By this means, they may suc-
ceed in controlling the national
committee and deciding whether
Senator Elihu Root of New York
shall be recommended as tempor
ary chairman of the convention.
Harry S. New, chairman of the
sub committee on arrangements
for the convention, declined to
discuss the plans of the Roosevelt
leaders but intimated that hi be-
lieved the national commit',ee
would not seat Mr. Howell or any
other eommitteeinan-elect until
after the adjournment of the con-
vention. He also expressed the
opinion that the national commit-
tee would approve of the selection
of Senator Root as temporary
chairman and indorse the plan

However, some time ago I did

Former Senator Dick of Ohio,

McKinley Claims 583
Washington. June 2.—Director
McKinley issued a statement Sun-
day declaring that 583 delegates
to the Chicago convention are
pledged to President Taft. This
is 43 more than enough to nomi-
nate. He declares further that
Col. Roosevelt lias 427 or 113 less
than enough to nomiuatfc. Twen-
tytwo delegates remain to be
chosen. Col. Roosevelt is count-
ing 200 of Mr. Taft's delegates.
"There is no longer any ques-
tion that the frieuds of President
Taft will be in a majority in the
convention and will control that
body from the election of tempor-
ary chairman until adjourn-
ment," said Mr. McKinley. "Mr.
Roosevelt and his friends will
face a very different situation in
the republican national conven-
tion from any they have faced
thusfar in this campaign, in that
the delegates will all be republi
cans. | f
"Secondly the delegates for the I'
most part ar* men of calm and ma-
ture political judgment who will
not be stampeded by noise and
bluster. Demand will be made on
all sides for a strict adherence to
instructions and pledges and no
delegates instructed by their con-
stituents to vote for President
Taft will record their votes other-
"Mr. Roosevelt will be accord-
ed the same square deal. No
rights which any candidate may
possess in the premises will be de-
nied and on the other hand no
rights which any one candidate
may have will be permitted to be
perverted by unfair means.
"The methods which Mr.
Roosevelt and his managers have
pursued to attain their ends, is
now pending before the republi
can national committee. Mr. I
Roosevelt is contesting the seats
of more than 200 delegates before
that body and a flimsy pretext on j
which lie is making his contests
will be shown to the country when
the contests are lie: rd before the
committee. The contests will be
decided on their merits by the
ruling body of the party.
