REFUSES TO RUN
Stewart Declines Nomination
for Governor of
HAS HORROR OF GABBERT
Republican Chairman Falls to Se
cure Declination of Chief Jus
tice, Which Is Sole Alterna
tive Slay Reorganize.
DENVER. Sept. 17. Philip B. Stew
v art. recently nominated for .Governor
of Colorado on the Republican ticket,
tonight sent a letter to the Republican
state chairman, declining the nomina
tion. While the letter does not state
it In so many words, the reason Mr.
Stewart declined to run Is the placing
of Chief Justice William Oabbert on
the ticket as candidate for re-election
to the supreme bencll. Before the con
vention Mr. Stewart advised against
the nomination of Gabbert. When the
nomination was made, Stewart was not
present, being ill at his hotel. He did
not learn that Gabbert's name was on
the ticket until Sunday, and it is said
he declared to State Chairman Vivian
that he would not run on the same
ticket with a Populist.
Gabbert Will Not Withdraw.
A very diplomatic letter was sent to
Gabbert, who was elected to the su
preme bench six years ago as a Popu
list. Gabbert is said to have declared
he would not withdraw if the entire
Republican ticket refused to run with
him. Mr. Stewart then gave the Re
publican State Central Committee
until 10 o'clock tonight to get Gab
bert off the ticket. As no move was
apparently made In that direction, he
Issued the following tonight to Vivian:
I bear to Inform you that I forwarded to
the Secretary of State my declination of the
nomination recently tendered me by the State
Quite Impossible to Run.
I very deeply regret that a sudden and
aevere attack of illness prevented, under di
rections of my physician, the report of the
work of the convention being brought to my
attention prior to its final adjournment on
A later account of the convention, however,
makes it quite lmposelble for me to render to
the state and to the party the service which
2 had confidently hoped to perform In tho
coming campaign. I wish to express through
you to the Republicans of the state my sin
cere appreciation of the honor conferred by
my nomination nd of the many personal as
surances of regard and to assure that my
efforts for the success of the party and Its
principles will be In no way relaxed.
Another Convention Likely.
It is reported tonight that Judge
Charles F. Caswell, who was nominat
ed with Gabbert for the supreme
bench, will withdraw his name from
the ticket tomorrow.
There was also a report current to
night that the Republicans would call
another convention and nominate an
entirely new ticket.
FOR DIRECT PRIMARY LAW
Republican County Conventions Al
;most All Approve Snch Legislation.
SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 17. (Special.)
Platforms adopted by the Republican
county conventions of the state show
clearly that the state convention will re
quire the passage of a direct primary law
by the next Legislature. - It is significant
of the various county platforms that
most of them demand the direct primary
for Congressional and Senatorial nomina
tions. Comparatively few of the counties
specifically indorse any form of a prim
ary law, but most of those held since
the State Primary League drafted its bill
approve the act.
The unanimity with which the direct
, primary law is indorsed la the most strik
ing feature of the county platforms.
There is a general indorsement of the
National and state administrations, but
an indorsement of the state administra
tion is conspicuously absent in King
County. In a few counties the conven
tions failed to indorse Senators Piles and
Ankeny by name, but practically every
convention referred to them in terms of
Congressman Jones showed a big gain
of strength In Central Washington. He
is singled out. particularly in those coun
ties where irrigation projects have been
under way, for especial commendation.
In view of the fact that Congressman
Jones looms large as a Senatorial possi
bility. In the event Senator Ankeny for
any reason should not ask a renomlna
tlon, the special recognition of his Con
gressional work in Eastern Washington
has a deep Interest to politicians.
The East Side counties are still refer
ring in political platforms to the rail
road legislation of the state, and several
took occasion to commend the Washing
ton Senators for their stand with Presi
dent Roosevelt on railway regulation. It
Is" a rather striking fact that Spokane,
the former hotbed of railroad agitation
did not dip into political railroad legisl
latlon with its platform.
Douelas Countv asked th CI.,. T.it
road Commission for a lowering of grain
rates, but that was the only East Side
county which demanded specific action in
railroad matters. Whitman County es
pecially commended tho r
mission, but this was to be expected, for
John C. Lawrence was named Commis
sioner from that eountv. T.lncnin'.. oii
road plank is extended and congratulates
the people upon the enactment of rail
road legislation, state and National. The
fact that both Senators voted for the
President's railroad rate bill Is com
mented upon favorably In Lincoln. Stev
ens draws attention to railroad legisla
tion by the Democratic party.
Douglas was the only county in the
state to demand a repeal of the present
road law, but there is a strong undercur
rent of feeling in Kitsap that Indicates
that county would stand with Douglas
In such a fight. Whitman commended
the present road law, but asked that the
Supervisor district be made smaller.
The opening of the Pend d'Orellle to
navigation by Congressional appropria
tion was demanded by Stevens County,
while Okanogan asks for more attention
to the irrigation projects. In that county
and asks for an extension of soldiers'
rights to public lands. Okanogan also
wants relief granted to settlers in the
Cherokee strip of the Okanogan irriga
Spokane took the lead in a demand for
the division of the state into Congres
sional districts, but the keynote eounded
there last June was not taken up by
other counties. Stevens fell into line, but
the platforms from other districts do not
Indicate the demand will be general.
Benton asks for the creation of a Ju
dicial district to comprise Adams. Frank
lin arid Benton Counties.
A fight against C. J. Lord's monopoly
of state deposits was started by Thurston
County and is certain to be carried into
the next Legislature, even if it does not
crop out at the state convention. The
hand of State Tax Commissioner J. H.
Easterday is apparent in this plank, for
Easterdiy fought while a member of the
Legislature and afterward when he
dropped out to secure the designation of
state depositories and the collection of
Interest on state funds.
Snohomish asks for the passage of an
elgh-hour law for miners, and King
County demands the enactment of a law
which would permit parents to collect
damages for the death of a child, over
21. upon whom they are dependent for
support. This is practically the only
labor legislation in the county platforms,
but it is probable the railroad employes'
organizations will a-k for a state indorse
ment of laws limiting the hours of em
ployment for trainmen and that the labor
organizations will go before the state
In the homes of the Congressmen the
"stand pat" policy on tariff legislation
Is appproved. President Roosevelt Is in
dorsed by every county in some form.
Judged from the county resolutions, it
is evident there will be no demand upon
the state convention for a lengthy dec
laration of principles and that a general
indorsement of Republican officials, a
stand pat plank, a requirement for the
direct primary and a review of Repub
lican results will be the principal fea
tures of the state document.
HOT FIGHT IX NEW HAMPSHIRE
Churchill Leads Revolt Against Di
vided State Organization.
CONCORD, N. H., Sept. 17. The most
interesting Republican state convention
in New Hampshire in many years will be
held tomorrow. The extraordinary can
vass which has preceded the convention
has largely developed from the entrance
into the field for the Gubernatorial nomi
nation of Winston Churchill, the novelist,
who is the representative and leader of
the, anti-corporation movement launched
by the newly formed Lincoln Republican
Club of New Hampshire.
The other candidates for the nomina
tion are Charles H. Greenleaf. member
of Governor Lane's council and former
State Senator; Charles M. Floyd, of Man
chester; Rosecrans W. Pillsbury. of Lon
donderry, former State Legislator, and
Stephen H. Gale, of Exeter. Tho can

PHOENIX, Ariz., Sept. 17. The terri
tory Joint statehoood convention was held
today and nominated Charles Aines
worth, of Phoenix, for Delegate to Con
gress. The platform adopted indorses
President Roosevelt and invites the labor
vote. It was a mass meeting rather than
a convention, for no county organization
exists. The chairman was T. A. Wilson,
who, as president of the Joint Statehood
League, called the convention and fixed
the apportionment of each county.

BIG SULTAN ID TERMS
PURPOSE OF MINISTER GUM
MERE'S VISIT TO FEZ.
Will Demand Morocco Pay American
Claims and Punish Ralsull.
No Excuses Accepted.
LONDON, Sept. 17. A dispatch from
Tangier" to the Times says: -
There is a tendency to underestimate the
Importance of the Americaij mission to
Fez. Minister Gummere will not only pre
sent his credentials, but also will lay be
fore the Sultan his Government's views
of the existing state of anarchy in Mo
rocco and demand the payment of Ameri
can claims and punishment for offenses
against American subjects.
The Maghzen also will doubtless be re
minded of the Sultan's pretense to speed
ily punish Ralsuli for the seizure and de
tention of Mr. Perdicarls.
The dispatch says the position of Amer
ica renders her action in these matters
easier than in the case of European
powers, the hands of whose representa
tives are tied by the political situation
in Europe. America's relations with Mo
rocco outside the Algeclras protocol are
clearly defined by treaty and. the Sul
tan's intrigues with other powers will
certainly not be accepted as an excuse for
the infringement of these treaty rights.
Only by firm action can the Sultan and
Maghzen be made to realize their real
position and responsibility.
"If." the dispatch adds, "the American
Minister succeeds in bringing about this,
he will deserve the thanks and congratu
lations of all who at present are suffering
from the Incapacity and arrogance of the
existing regime at Fez."
KAISULI LEVIES HIGH TAXES
Legations Protest but Sultan Can Do
Nothing Against Him.
TANGIER, Sept. 17. Several of the lega
tions have protested against the efforts
of Raisuil to impose Irregular and irritat
ing taxes on Moorish horsemen attached
to the foreign missions. Mohammed el
Torres, the Moroccan Foreign Minister,
has been asked to Interfere, but is at a
loss to know how to act.
The American mission, consisting of
Minister Gummere and the American
military and naval attaches, cannot reach
its destination in less than ten days, as
it is moving by short stages.

After terrorizing the town for two
hours, Taelainein was induced by the
Governor to leave, the Governor having
been reluctantly forced to act by the for

CHICAGO, Sept. 17. (Special.) A plot

be brewing among city politicians, who
fear the startling disclosures he may
make in the present police department

desperately to retain his office, and the
politicians fear that the chief will stop
at nothing to beat him.
Men who "have protected the under

leges from the administration, are un
derstood to be behind the movement
against -the department head. It is as
