Sandusky Star Journal, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1911, Sandusky, Ohio I THE HOME PAPER J r TODAY'S NEWS TODAY THE SANDUSKY STAR-JOURNAL. FORTY-FIFTH YEAR, SANDUSKY, OHIO, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1911, LAST EDITION NUMBER 54 Stampede to Roosevelt as 1912 Leader Indicated at Gather- ing of the Committee. BROWN PRIMARY PLAN [TURNED DOWN BY TAFT Chicago To Get Next National Republican Convention Held in June, WASHINGTON, Dec. 12 The republican national convention will meet in Chicago Teusday, June 18, to nominate a candidate for the presidential election of 1912. This was decided and the rest of the routine business transacted at a morning session of the na- tional committee today. Chicago won overwhelmingly. Harry S. New, of Indiana, was selected as chairman of com- mittee on arrangements although there was some opposition. lAit noon Arthur "Varys, of Ohio, had not reported to the Ohio delegation on. the primary question and it was leared he would hare nothing to re- port but it was said Borah and others might bring up the subject this after- noon and force a vote. Governor Hill, of Maine, was elected chairman of the national committee to fill out term Hitchcock who resigned. As a result of the developments of Monday night in the various confer- ences of members of the national re- publican committee the friends of President Taft were feeling glum Tuesday in advance of the national committee meeting. There were opea declarations of anti-Taft men against his renomina- tion on the ground that he cannot be re-elected if nominated. The dis- carding of the boom of Senator Rob- ert Marion LaFollette and the rais- ing si the standard of Theodore Roosevelt has been, disconcerting to the Taft forces as it is believed that a stampede for Roosevelt could, easily be brought about while it was gener- ally conceded that LaPollette had an uphill fight. The most serious break that of party chieftains who had been publicly branded by Roosevelt as reactionaries and standpatters who are now flocking to his standard, There was every indication that many of the old Taft adherents wert ready to climb onto the Roosevelt band wagon in case it was driven up and nothing could stop such a stam- -pede If the word had been passed out that the former president was in a receptive mood.

KING GEORGE PLEASED, MAKES DELHI CAPITAL DELHI, India, Dec. vas- salage to Great Britain was again for- mally proclaimed to the world today when, in the presence of per- sons, representing some subjects, 150 nativa rulers knelt in homage to tbe head of the alien house of Hanover and Saxe-Coburg. So pleased was King George with the reception heie during the mag- nificent Durbar that' he announced today the capital would be moved to Delhi from Calcutta. Amid scenes of barbaric pomp and magnificence, unequalled in the his- tory of Indian -the great arena -where Queen Victoria was proclaimed Em- press by Viceroy Lord Lytton in 1877 and where King Edward was proclaim- ed by Viceroy Lord Curzon in 1903, King George the first reigning English sovereign to visit the far his own suc- cession to the imperial throne. The fact that every week more than natives are dying from plague, that hundreds of thousands are on the verge of starvation, and that the spirit of sedition abroad m the land is renressed only by En- gland's strong display of force, was apparently forgotten for the moment. The oriental setting, the glitter of the royal crowns, the gorgeous robes and jewels of the Indian princes, the thousands of brilliantly__n-niformed Down in Springfield, they have a Good Fellow who is a real aid to 1 Santa Claus. Because he thought would be difficult to raise funds to' assist Santa this year, Kon. John W.

Of this amount goes to the Charities and to the "Salvation Army. Springfield boys and girls are for- tunate. Perhaps so large a sum is more than is needed, at least at Christ- mas time, but then, Mr. Bookwalter provides for relief of families as weU "We havent any Baokwalters in Sandusky, but there are many Gooa Fellows who can make smaller dona- tions and thus help along the good cause. The Salvation Army and other organizations are relieving needy families. They need help.

It also needs help You wouldn't want your child to find, an empty stocking on Christ- mas morning, would you? No? Then be a Good Fellow and send in your share.

The eastern potentates started from their different camps early and arrived in full state with bodyguards, viziers, and court offi- cials. The troops and attendants took up the positions allotted to them and each chief seated himself! in his gilt chair, over which floated his own banner, banners that had been seen on eastern battlefields hundreds of years before the British royal standard was thought of. The canopies of blue and white satin embroidered with the goM "star of India" and the national flower, the shaded a mass of color that was positively bewildering. The chiefs were all clad in their state robes of brightly silks and cloth of gold, and to avoid any squobbles about precedence, the had been well mixed up, so that there were no patch- es of color representing any particu- lar states or religions.

Seven more bodies were taken fiom the mine here today, bringing the to- tal number of dead recovered up to 30. With five men taken out alive hope was revived that all of the en- tombed men might not be dead. Res- cuers reported that rappmgs had been heard in other parts of the mines and estimated that 25 Or 30 men are still alive. Every effort is being made to reach them. Miners today charged that mine was not properly sprinkled, making the explosion of coal dust WASHINGTON, Dec. house committee on foreign affairs today agreed to report favorably on the res- olution of Representative Sulzer rec- ommending the abrogation ot the trea ty of 1S32 with Russia because the latter refuses to recognize passports of American Je_ws. Charges that vote buying and sell- ing is done in the "open market" in Fayette county, Pennsylvania; that notorious trafficking there rivals the sensational disclosuies made in Ad- ams county, Ohio, and that the United States Steel corporation, through its subsidiary companiees, is a party to the bribery and intimidation of voters were made by Jespe H.

Craig. representative from the twenty-third district of Pennsylvania. He declared that the entire district had been bauehed for years and that the ju-' diciary of the district was so influ- enced that it was impossible to have adequate prosecution of those guilty jf the violation of the law. Members of the committee later ex- pressed the opinion that Mr. Wise not made out a case to show that Representative Craig's seat had been obtained by unlawful means. Although its final report will not be ready for several days, the tariff board laid before President Taft a comprehensive summary of its inves- tigations of the wool industry. No recommendations as to-reductions In '.he present wool tariff were made by the board, which under the act of con- gress was to report anly on the com- ps-.'i've cost of production in various Darts of the United States and la foreign countries.

Six labor leaders are asserted to be mentioned by name in McManigal's statement outside of John J. and James B. Mc- Namara, as having been implicated in the cases of djnamiting. At leasi eight others are alleged to be men- tioned by implication. The labor load- ers in question are said to be scatter- ed through the middle west and east. It is asserted that McManigaFs dy- namiting operations were under the direction of persons other than J. J. McXamara early in 1907 to March 27, 1909. McManigal it is said has given the federal authorities the name of at least one individual who directed his operations throughout this period. Clears Attorney Darrow. LOS ANGELES, Dec. Clarence Darrow as well as Detective Bert Franklin denied the statements made before the grand jury probe in- to the alleged bribery attempt upon McNamara jurors that the attorney knew anything about the bribery case. Up to this time Franklin has refused to talk about Ms case but af- ter the statement was sent out that Barrow's name had been brought into the care he said: "I have not said anUhinsr absut this case I know enough to keep my mouth shut about my own affairs.
