Chicago, June 20.—"So far as I am concerned," de-
clared Colonel Roosevelt to his delegates and advisors in
address early Thursday morning, "I am through. If you

if you have the courage and loyalty of your convictions.
Chicago, June 19.—The long expected crash in the Republican
ranks came tonight. The Roosevelt forces acting, they said, under
the personal direction of the colonel himself, began to lay their
plans for independent action in the national republican convention.
As a forerunner of the more drastic action expected in the conven-
tion Friday, Roosevelt members of the committee on credentials
withdrew from that body tonight—withdrew in person and in ef-
fect withdrew all of the Roosevelt contests, which had been scaled
down from 92 to 78.
Colonel Roosevelt tonight was in the midst of a series of excit-
ing conferences and was busy figuring on the loyal delegates whom
he could expect to carry *ith him out of the committee or rather
into a separate convention on the convention floor in event the
crisis is reached.
Persons who talked with the colonel tonight declared there
was no longer any doubt as to his attitude. Convinced that the
credentials committee was against him, Colonel Roosevelt decided
to go no further with his futile fight in the regular convention.
The colonel would not issue a formal statement as to his war-
like intentions early in the evening, but it was said to have made
his position clear to his followers.
Some of the conferences at his headquarters were exciting.
Senator Borah of Idaho, it was reported, declared as he left
the Roosevelt rooms that he would not bolt.
The Missouri delegation held a caucus tonight to formally
launch a boom for Governor Hadley for president, it was rumored.
In the meantime, there was much talk of Justice Charles E.
Hughes of New York as a candidate. Some of the leaders ventured
to suggest a ticket of Hughes and Hadley.
All sorts of rumors were current as the crash came.
