Thc motion was made by Senator Pen- rose, of Pennsylvania, and the decision of the committee gave victory to Gov- ernor Hadley in the strenuous fight he has been making to secure the seating of the Roosevelt delegates against the claims of the Taft element, which ap- peared as contestant in the Missouri cases. Hadley is One of Them. The delegates seated by. agreement of the Roosevelt double delegation of eight wer Gov, Hadly, Jesse A. Tolerton, Wal- ter S. Dickey, Hugh Mclndoe. The balance of the Roosevelt delega- tion were seated as alternates. They were Gov: Hadley, Jesse A. Tolerton, Walter S. Dickey, Hugh Mclndoe. Taft Wins Elsewfcere. Contests in six Mississippi districts, the Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth. Seventh and Eighth, were decided in favor of the Taft delegates at the forenoon session .of the committee.

Senator Dixon dared the Taft man- agers to be specific and give the name of the Roosevelt leader who is reported to have offered a bribe to n delegate in Alabama and the name of the man who received the money. It WHS reported that the Taft man- agers hnve under consideration the in- troduction of n resolution in the. con- vention requiring all delegates to voto according to the instructions given by j their states until released by the can didate. Taft leaders, after a canvass of thi situation, declared they expected to con i trol the credentials committee by vote of 32 to 21. Delegates Talk Dark Horse. Many delegates to .the republican con vention who arrived in the early hours today talked of the advisability of a dark horse candidate for president In the hope of bringing party harmony and success. The leaders while hoping that some olution of the problem may be brought orward at the eleventh hour, appirent- y fenl that the lines of battle between 'aft and Roosevelt have been so sharply rawn and such high feeling aroused hat the fight will have to be fought to finish between the president ana CoL loosevelt. Everybody is Confident Tnft supporters apparently, were confident of success than ever after yes- :erday's victory in the contests before, the national committee and freely reiter- ated their predictions of the renoxnina- Lion of the president op the first ballot. Roosevelt managers declared that their candidate would have the necessary 540 votes to secure the nomination on the first ballot. The followers of Senator of Iowa, and Senator LaFollette, of Wis- consin, are expressing the opinion that there will be no choice on the first bal- lot leaving the inference that they hope their men may be decided on as a com- prorriis candidate.
