Many Leaders Tacitly for Roosevelt
But Secretly Against Him A
House Burglarized by a
Woman and Steals

Other News.
Washington, July 5. It is ad
mitted by his friends that from this
time out Senator Hanna may be
considered a candidate for the re
publican nomination for president
in 1904. He Will deny he is a can
didate, but the fact remains that
the men who are so close to him
think. him a candidate. Lines are
already shaping foracontes between,
himself and Mr. Roosevelt.
There i3 no doubt Senator' Quay,
of Pensylvania, will throw his entire
influence to Presiden Roosevelt.
There is bitter personal en
mity between Hanna and Quay. It
was Hanna who kept Quay out of
the senate after his appointment by
Governor Stong; it was Quay, aid
ed by Senator Piatt, of New York,
who unloaded Roosevelt on the re
publican national convention ia
1900, against Hanna's protest.
Hanna's plan has been to corral
delegates I for the next republican
convention and hold them "in
trust" for Presideut Roosevelt.
Quay represents a school of politics
that takes nothing on trust. He
thinks the delegates ' who . are for
Roosevelt should be controlled by
Roosevelt, not by Hanna.
To the casual observer it is made
to appear Hanna wants Roosevelt
renominated as much as anybody.
He is playing to get in a position
where he can eay he has been in
the band wagon" all the time, if the
sentiment for Roosevelt, at conven
tion is to strong to be overcome," cr
where he can take the delegates
himself if enough disaffection ex
ists to make that possible.
Hanna has two points of strength.
The first is that almost the entire
republicen membership of congress
is against Roosevelt, and the second
one hat the big financial and
business men of the country the
great railroad operators, the Wall
street magnates, the men who con
trol the vast combinations of capi
tal do not deem Roosevelt "safe"
and do tbink Hanna eminently so.
The fact that congress is against
the president is not so weighty as
the fact that the financial interests
are against him. Wall street and
its allies do much toward dictating
the nomination for president in the
republican party. The point that
will be urged against Roosevelt and
in Hanna's favor is the president's
lack of sound political judg-rent
and steadiness of character. It will
ba said he is shifty, variable, im
pulsive andikely to acs without
mature reflection. This will be
done by the republican members in
congress and by the Hanna machine
A republican senator who is ac
quainted with the method that will
be pursued by ahti Roosevelt mem
bers of congress and politicians
eay: .
The endeavor from this time on
will be to create an impression that
Roosevelt is not a proper man with
whom to trust the fortunes, of the
partty. The public utterances of
these,.members of congress will be
in praise of Roosevelt, but in' con
fidence to Ihose who influence local
sentiment a different view will be
From mouth to mouth it will be
whispered that Roosevelt is a fine
fellow, honest, courageous, frank,
impulsive perhas to. much so at
times; self-reliant perhaps not as
willing as he should be to take the
the advice of party leaders and to
consider the welfare of the party;
loyal to his friends perhaps not
wise in their selection; patriotic
perhaps too much carried away by
the spectacular and too vainglori
ous to consider properly the com
mon workaday welfare of the coun
try; a very good republican per
haps not always discieet incosnider
ing the interests of the party a fine
fellow if be were only Bound and
could be trusted to do the right
thing in the right way."
The paesident's object in making
the great swing around the cirele
this fall is to show the people that
these reports of his instability are
not based on proper regard for his
real character. Curiously enough
his-opponents are glad he is going
to make the trip, for they say he is
bound to do something somewhere
that wili strongthen the impression
they infet nd to breath. There is no
doubt that the president's pwing is
for pure political reasons . He does
not want to see the coantrj ; he has
seen it all.
He wants to talk face to face wih
the people who have to elect dele
gates to the next republican con
vention. He intends to make a
great play for Cuban reciprocity,
and he intends also to justify the
course of the administration in the
Philippines. Aside from that there
is a personal reason. The president
likes the applause of the multitude
as well as as any man who has ever
been in public life. ;,
. Hanna intends to stay at home
in Cleveland most of the time. He
does not have to go about the coun
try. He has an organization in ev
ery state. His chief lieutenant,
Henry C. Payne, is now in Roose
velts cabinet, but that does not
seem to worry Hanna any. Payne
and Hanna have been closely asso
eiated for many years and perhaps
Payne is in the cabinet for purpos
es of Hanna.
The only two expert politicians
who are sincerely for Roosevelt are
Senators Quay and Piatt, of New
York. These men see in him an
opportunity to further their own
ends. They are not so hide
bound in their loyalty that they
would not change ii necessity re
quired. .It is understood General James
S." Glarkson, recently appointed sur
veyor of the Port of New York, will
soon go into the South in Roose
velt's intere'L '. Clarksoh is an old
national committee campaigner who
has been rather discredited of late,
but who was taken care of by Sen
ator Piatt and who will do Piatt's
bidding. On the other band, every
national committeeman in tfce South
is a Hanna man. There are not
more than five members of the re
publican national committee who
"will say honestly that Roosevelt
should be renominated.
A the matter now stands the peo
ple seem to be with Roosevelt and
the politicians against him. It is
two years before the nominating
convention will be held and politi
cians can do a great deal in two
years. Dsspite Hanna's candidacy
it looks now, to the unprejudiced
observer, that Roosevelt would se
cure the nomination.
Providence, R. I.,' July 9. Little
footprints that strongly resemble
those made by a woman's shoes,
and the print of hands, alio like a
woman's, lead detectives, to believe
that a woman burglar, robbed the
house of Jahn J. Battam, at No.
113 Courtland street, last night.
Mr. Battam was away from home
last evening with his wife, but left
the lights burning in three rooms
of his house. They were surprised
upon their return at a late hour to
find that they could not enter the
front door from the outside. Upon
going to the rear door it was at once
apparent that there had been a bur
glary. The kitchen windows were
up and the lights were out.
It was found by the police that
the house had been entered by
breaking a light of glass, slipping
back the catch and opening a wind
ow. Two bedrooms on the second
floor were in great confusion. Ar
ticles of every description covered
tne noor. me list or stolen prop
erty, worth over $1,200, includes
thee articles:
Woman's gold watch valued at
$S0; two rings with five diamonds
in each valued at $120 each; ring

and Talk3 Variously.
Seattle, June 14. Tracy was in
close quarters with deputies yester
day afternoon,' near Palmer. Had
they known that he was within
fifty $st of them, as he knew tb?y
were, a battle would certainly have
resulted. -
The incident happened at the
house of Farmer Pautot, a few
miles from Palmer. Tracy appear
ed there early in the day. He ask
ed the old man if he could buy
food. The farmer said he could,
and together they , entered the
house. There, Tracy revealed his
identity. Mrs. Pautot supplied him
with a pie and milk. Tiacy busied
himself with asking questions
about the roads, the adjacent coun
try and neighboring towns as he
At this juncture the dialogue was
interrupted by the sound ot a vehi
cle coming along the road. In an
instant, the outlaw, who was con
stantly alert, listened to the racket
of the rumbling conveyance,' and
then took action when convinced
that the noise he heard was not im
aginary. Seizing his rifle, he quick
ly andnnoiselessly leaped from the
chair by the table and sidestepped
into the bedroom adjoining the
kitchen, which is also the living
room. Crouching low, gun in hand
Tracy pulled the white curtain a
side an inch and awaited" the com
ing of the travelers'. m Through this
peek hole he could see everything
for 100 yards on either side of the
house, up and down the road. A
moment later the vehicle hove into
view,; fi'tled with armed, men who
wsre members of the posse. In the
buggy were Deputy Sheriff McGee,
Fred Burner and four others, who
were then driving to points along
the county road near Green river
to station themselves. The men in
the rig did not pause a moment at
Pautot's to make inquiries, as is
generally the custom, and thus
missed a battle with the enemy
whom they were so eagerly search
ing. The moment the desperado
saw the possemen, he doubtless be
lieved they had heard of his where
abouts and that at last he had been
breught to bay. The spirit of the
man at once asserted itself,
however, as well as his cool-head-edness
and caution. Instead of op
ening fire upon the occupants of
the conveyance and mowing known
the pursuers, Tracy stepped from
the window to one side agaicst the
wall where he stood perfectly mo
tionless, with the stock of bis rifle
resting on the floor. All his nerve
was needed at this crucial moment,
and he expected the deputies to
halt the buggy, walk Up to the
house and abk for information. Un
conscious of the great opportunity
that was theirs, the officers rattled
along over the gravel.
The'desperado strained his ears
to learn what the officers were do
ing. There was no bait, the wheels
joggled over the Etones up to the
gate and passed it. On rolled the
rig toward the Green River bridge,
and Tracy took a long breath of
Seattle, July 14. While the dep
uties were confident yesterday
that Tracy must be near the end of
his rope, the information received
this morning is not encouraging.
Tracy was twice reported near the
Indian reservation, close to Enum
claw last evening. This morning
the posse accompanying- the dogs
rushed from Kanasket to Buckley
on a false clew, only to find a mes
sage that Tracy had exchanged shots
with the deputies near Palmer last
night. The men and dogs at once
started back to Palmer by way of
Enumclaw. They arrived at noon,
but the. trail was then cold' and the
dogs could do nothing. The follow
ing message was received at n a.
Enumclaw. July 14 After a
wild ride to Buckley to Enumclaw
the posse caught the freight 'train
to Palmer. Ward had been receiv
ed here that Tracy fought a battle
with two deputies at the Palmer
school house last night. No par
ticulars or names are known. Al-
may ; be expected
Tracy worked a neat game on the
officers in order to get to Palmer.
He was within a mile of that place
yesterday morning, when he learn
ed that the officers were there. He
then worked back toward Enum
claw and showed himself on the
road to Buckley. He was in the
woods and whiie the officers were
stationing guards he ran a mile and
boarded a freight trai.i on a grade
and proceeded to Palmer, where he
is, no doubt, making for the stam
pede pass,
Seattle, July I4. Tracy lay with
in 30 feet of the posse and blood
hounds at Enumclaw", and heard
them discuss plans for hia capture.
He learned the direction the pos
se wa3 going in and struck out in
the opposite one. - ,
Enumclaw, Wash., Jnly 13. Af
ter two dava of inactivitv the man-
hunters are once again hot on the
trail of Harry Tracy, the out-law
convict. At 9:30 o'dock tonight the
bloodhounds were placed on his
track, and, After following it for
three-quarters of a mil?, lost, it in
a dense swamp that 'borders the
road leading from here tD Buckley
The wires have been kept humming
for two hours with message to sur
rounding towes, and it 13 believed
that Tracy will be either killed or
captured by noon tomorrow. Tra
cy was seen at 5 o'clock this after
neon one and one-half inile3 east
of Enumclaw by Clarence Barke, a
10-year-old boy. . He was sitting
near the edge of a gravel pit as the
lad passed byon a bicycie. Hail
ing the lad, Tracy enquired the road
to Buckley. The lad imparted the
information desired, and then hast
ening into towu, imparted the news
of what he bad seen. The inform
ation was telephoned ex-Sheriff
Woolery, in charge of the posse at
I Enumclaw, by Sheriff Hartmaa of
rierce county, who Happened to oe
here, and also Deputy McKillen, at
Buckley. , ,
Woofery "and- flvo guare-B-proourr
ed a team a3 soon as poseioie and
came here with the bloodhounds.
They were placed on the trail and
followed it for three-quarters of a
mile. -It was very dark when the
hounds were thrown off the scent at
the swamp, and, after a consulta
tion, the posse decided to cover all
possible avenues of escape and wait
until daylight before Jtrying to fol
low the trail ifarther.
The instant the bloodhounds
struck the scent they strained at
the leash and bayed in a manner of
being on the trail of the convict.
The description given by young
Burke, without the behavior of the
hounds, shows plainly that Tracy
has once again been located. It is
believed that Tracy is heading di
rectly for Buckley. When he was
at Frank Portaut's house along
Green river Fiiday night he asked
the farmer to take a rig and drive
him to Bubkley. He was told the
horse was too old to'stand such a
trip, and replied that he would
have to stait for there without a
team. His appearance on the
Buckley road, east of here, and
withip three and a quarter miles of
his destination, 6bows that his
questions were not intended to
throw bis pursuers of the trail.
Not only ia the Cordon abaut the
outlow tonight regarded as very
strong, but the men are determined
to capture or to kill him. Orders
have been sent out to search all
trains at points where Tracy might
aleempt to board them.
The officers unite in saying that
for the first time Eince the convict
was believed to be in a death trap
at the Green river bridge, they a
gain have him where the cutiook
for hi3 capture is excellent. At
daylight the hounds will be again
placed on the trail unless word is
received that Tracy has shown up
at some point where time can be
gained by adopting diffetent tactics.
The region through which the con
vict must pas3 unless he should
back-track and pass through the
cordon or take a direct eastern
course over thehills is of such a na
ture it is believed' the hounds will
have bo trouble in keeping the
scent. The point where Tracy was
seen by youug Burke is close to a
gravel pit about a mile and a half
east of town on a road which leads!
to the White River Mills.
