- John A. Gilbreath is disgusted with the machine politics in Missouri and does not believe that President Taft can win Missouri in 1912. He calls for a late convention not composed of federal office holders to allow Missouri Republicans to "act upon matured thought." Gilbreath is willing to support Theodore Roosevelt and wants the Republican Party to nominate a presidential candidate that is better then the party as a whole.
