Incomplete returns from every dis- trict give the former president sixty- five of the state's seventy-six dele- gates in the Republican national con- The Roosevelt supporters are claiming sixty-seven and later re- turns may carry the figures to that total. Colonel Roosevelt won .fifty-three of the sixty-four district; national dele- gates and his followers elected enough delegates to the state convention to give them control of that body." The state convention twelve delegates at Governor, fWfoodrow Wilson of New who had no organized opposi- tion, will have-, seventy-four of the seventy-six delegates from Pennsylva- nia in the Democratic national con- vention.

The supporters., of- the former presi- dent were without a, state organiza- tion or without.; an many of the.. thirty-iwp congressional districts. The regular Republican organization headed by- United States Senator Boies- Penrose, haa withstood the fury of many a political storm, re- ceived a crushing, defeat in the loss of control of the state. convention. It Is first time, in the present genera- tion that it has-, lost. control of tha.t: body. Duties of State Convention. In addition- to- naming the. twelve delegates at large to Chicago the con- vention will. select thirty-eight presi- dential electors, four, candidates for congressmen at large, and candidates for state treasurer and auditor gen- eral, all to b.e voted- for at the No- vember election. The significance of the Roosevelt victory can be- realized when it is re- membered that the delegates in con- trol of the state convention have the power to select the state chairman arid under the party rules the delega- tion to the national convention elects the national committeeman. At present Senator Peiirose, holds this position. It was said by a prominent member of the state committee that some of the Roosevelt delegates elected to the state convention are regular organiza- tion men who while, voting for Roose- velt delegates will still stand by the state organization. Some of the.organization leaders re- frained from personally entering the p-imary as candidates, for district del- egates as it. had been expected they would be selected as delegates at large. The vote polled was light. In some districts it did; not go much over 50 per cent of the. vote at the last gen- eral election. Colonel Roosevelt is said to have received bis heaviest vote from the reform, element represented by the Keystone party, which succeed- ed in electing a reform mayor in Phila- delphia last year. Another element; of strength of the Roosevelt forces, was the idle anthracite miners, among whom the former president ran strong.

The attitude of the United States as expressed to both the federal and rebel authorities is that any maltreat- ment of American citizens "will be deeply resented by the American gov- ernment and people and must be fully answered for by the Mexican people." Acting Secretary Huniington Wil- son of the state department, who is- sued special instructions to Ambassa- dor Henry Lane Wilson at Mexico City and Morion Letcher, AnJerican consul at Chihuahua, authorized the state- ment that intervention was not con- templated by the United States.
