St. Louis, June 12—When the after-
noon session opened the Delaware oon

gins, heading one of the Dataware
delegations, asked it should be post-
poned until the arrival of Mr. Addldks,
who beads the other delegation. It

that by which bis convention was
called wai the one which made the fight
for the Republloan party two years
ago and represented the revolt against
the rule of Kellogg, whom he claimed
was a non resident. He represented
what he called the new Republloan
party, which had grown oat of opposl
tloa to Demooratlo polioy on the tariff
but said the new Republicans had not
found It agreeable to affiliate with the
old Republloan party as It has been
managed for years. They therefore
met In mass convention and organized
a state oommlttee. Behan asserted
that the Republican party had made
very rapid progress since Its organiza-
tion, and said with proper enoourage

After Behan had concluded his
speech, and without requiring auy
statement In behalf of Kellogg, the
Kellogg delegation was seated. This
aotlon was taken on the motion of
IlabD, of Ohio, because the committee
under which the Magtonls delegation
was elected was not osnsidered regu

Republicans In Louisiana should be
encouraged, and they were reoalled by
the oommlttee to allow Chairman
Garter to explain the reasons for the
committee’s decision. This he did,
explaining that the sc'ion of the com
mlttee was necessary technloal. He
said the oommlttee oonld not, under
its rules, go behind the verdict of the
regular party organization.

The contestants from the Third Lou

These preliminaries being disposed
of, the Delaware oontest was taken up.
There are six delegates at large from
the state and no district delegates, the

claiming to be the regular one,
headed by ex-Senat.or Higgins and the
other by Hon. J. Edward Addloks

Higgins presented the main argq

been elected to the senate
Mr. Higgins denied Addloks had
anything to do with bis election and
deolared he never heard of him until
the day after the election when Ad
dicks unnouaotd himself as a candl
date for the senate. Higgins admitted
In response to inquiries from the oom
mlttee that the Addloks convention
was regularly called and oonvened,
but that It was Irregular In proceed
lrga, He said also that bis convection
was a bolting oonventlon.
Asked bow he omld reconcile his
claims to this admitted state of affairs,
he replied: “Fraud vitiates all things.”
After considerable more vigorous de
bate the following resolution was
‘The oommlttee declines to seat ei-
ther delegation and refers the entire
matter of representation from the state
of Delaware to the convention."
The Arizona oontest was next oon-
f-ldered. The contestees are for Mo
Klnley, while the contestants are for
varlcus other candidates, including
Allison, Reed and Morton. Judge
Thompson made a brief statement for
the McKinley delegation and was fol
lowed by S'oddardt for the opposing
delegates. 8*oddardt claimed his del-
ega'lon was the regular one, and that
the other delegation was chosen by a
bolting oonventlon The oommlttee
voted to award a half vote to eaoh of
the two delegations.
