the Arlington Hotel this afternoon
and tonight and talked Roosevelt.
Landslide for him,' thev said.
"Sure to be nominated by acclama
tion. Nobody else thought of," and
All tbe members of the commit
tee here and all tho-:e coming, with
tbe exception of not more than six,
wish somebody else than RoDsevelt,
preferably Hanna, could be nomi
nated. The republicaa national
committee is a Htnna machine.
(Its members dislike Roosevelt, dis
trust him and tbink four more,
years of him would be. dangerous to
the party and the country.
There is no more sincerity
in the fervid Rooevels protesta
tions than there is at a ho se sale.
It is the real, inside, bedrock
opinion of the indurated politicians
who are not all sentimental ia their
affiliation?, that the republican par
ty is facing three dilemmas:
First To nominate and elect
Roosevelt. This would mean in
their opinion, a disrupted and dis
organized party in 1908 tbat would
win no more p'esiden ial victories
for eight and, perhaps, 12 years.
Scond To deft at Roofevelt for
the nomination and nominate some
body el te and elect him.
Third To nominate Roosevelt
and defeat him at tbe p ills, thus
leaving th pirty in good shape for
the campaign of 1908.
The shrewd political minds of
the men who run the national or
ganization of the republican party
have weighed tbeee three proposi
tions cirefally. They all wish it
might be possible to solve tbe prob
lem by nominating someother than
Roosevelt and el cting him. They
think they could do the electing if
they could do the nominiting.
That is the rub.
A great deal of scheming and con
triving is 20i d er on. Dozens of the
big men in tbe republican party
are trying to find a way to nomi
nate Hmna or any other man who
would be a fairly decent candidate.
They have not yet hit on a plan,
and they probably will not. Their
trouble is that they did not begin
to plot soon enough.
President Roosevelt has eo great
a bold on the people tbat it is now
DPxt to impossible to make the mass
of the republican party take any
other candidate. It is admitted by
every man in national politics that
he will be nominated unless a polit
ical mericle intervenes.
This does not mean that the ef
fort to get another candidate will be
abandoned. Hanna is held in first
regard. His friends are scheming
io Ohio and in Indiana,' acd in
New York, and in the West, but
they do not arrive anywhere. Meet
ings arid conferences and consulta
tions are beiog held. Overtures, are
being made to newspapers. Lead
ers are being approached. It is a
sort of a guerillt warfare against
Roosevelt, and it has not accom
plished, as yet, even fair guerilla
Tomorrow tbe meeting of the
natiooal committee will be a shout
for Roosevelt.' They will all get
up and yell. Perhaps six of them
will have more than their lung pow
er io their voices. That six will
put in a tincture of heart.
Tbe situation is not hard to de
fine. Any man here, who will talk
honestly will growl against Roose
velt and wish that Hanna might be
named. They are all against Roose
velt, but they must all be for him
on the face of things, and they know
it, and that is the reason why most
of them registered in the afternoon
papers today with statements about
the great popularity of tbe presi
dent and predictions that he
will be elected triumphantly.
. It is so in congress. Every lead
ing republican in Washington has
trumpeted bis little fanfare,and ev
ery one of them thicks Roosevelt
will disrupt the party if he is elect
ed next fall.
Thus. If they nominate ancT
elect Roosevelt tbay face disorgani
zation and wreck. They cannot
nominate anybody else as the cards
nowjlie. Their recourse is to nom
inate Roosevelt and defeat him at
the polls. It is easy enough. They
defeated Harrison in 1892. They
can turn the trick again.
Unless the miracle comae, unless
there is some way to get Hanna in
to the field without laying the par
ty leaders open to the cry of "Ju
das" for the masses, Roosevelt will be
nominated with a boom and a blare
at Chicago next June, and he will
be stabbed with a million stillettoes

Washington, Dec. 7. E. C. Esh
elby, owner of tbe Cincinnati Com
mercial I ribune, a republican news-'
paper, formerly owned in part by
Perry S. Heath, threw a brick at the
President on Saturday that struck
this morning and created great con
sternation at the White House.
Mr. Esbelby printed a 6creaming
editorial article on Saturday, de
manding the sidetracking of Presi
dent Roosevelt by the republican
party, saying he cannot carry New,
York, and urging the selection of,
almost any one else, but preferably
Hanna. Eshelby is now hand ia
glove with George Cox, the Cincin
nati republican boss, and, it ia'
claimed that he recently had long
conferences with Hanna, both here
and in New York.
It is understood that some of tbe
president's friends will take this ed
itorial article and some other evi
dences of activity on the part of
Hanna boomers as a basis for the
demand on the president that be
shall have a show down with Han
na at once. 1
. In commenting on the editorial
article Senator Foraker said today:
. "I cannot undertake to explain
what the Commercial Tribune has
done. The editorial speaks for it
self. I have no doubt but there are
some people, perhaps a good many,
wbo share the fears and apprehen
sions expressed in that editorial,,
but I am .quite certain that the
whole number would be found, if
we conld enumerate them, to con
stitute not more than a very small
Senator Hanna was asked last
night what the Commercial Tribune
article meant. "I don't know." be
faid smiling. "I wasn't consulted,
can't talk about it because I know
nothing about it.
Notice is hereby clven that on Moriday the
21st day of December, 1903, at tbe hour of one .
