BEVERLY, Mass., July 11. 'William
Loeb. Jr.. Collector of the Port of New
York, frankly told President Taft to
day that he would rather remain at
his post In the customs service than
to run for Governor of New York this
The President as frankly told Mr.
Loeb that the Republican nomination
seemed to be coming his way and
that it would take more than a fish
ing trip to the Rocky Mountains to
The ex-secretary to President Roose
velt left Beverly Hills tonight for New
York, leaving the impression here that
if it became necessary for him to take
the Republican nomination he would
do so and make a whirlwind campaign.
General Discussion Had.
The mention of the New York situa
tion was Incidental to a talk on gen
eral politics between the President, and
Mr. Loeb. They were together this
morning, before the President went to
the Myopia links for a game of golf
with Henry C. Trick, who lives near
here, and they lunched together at
John Hays Hammond's cottage in Glou
cester. After the luncheon, the talk con
tinued. Mr. Taft was anxious "to hear
something of the situation as viewed
by someone outside the Immediate Ad
Mr. Taft is not interfering in the
New York situation In any way. He
and Mr. Loeb are close friends and
whenever Mr. Loeb's name has been
mentioned to the President , in connec
tion with the New York Governorship,
he always has enthusiastically ap
proved the suggestion.
Support Counted On.
Mr. Loeb has known this for some
time. He has known that as far as he
could legitimately do so. the President
would , bring all his influence to his
support In anything he might under
take. Mr. Loeb has counted so con
fidently on this support that he was
rather inclined to resent the inference
In some quarters that it was necessary
for him to come to Mr. Taft to ask for
The Collector discussed New York poli
tics with the President and made no at
tempt to conceal the more serious as
pects of the situation from the Repub
lican point of view. He expressed the
belief, however, that the Republicans
would get together and that the split in
their party would be offset by divisions
In the Democratic ranks.
Taft Puts Question.
It was when they had reached this
stage of the conversation that the Presi
dent aked Mr. Loeb if it would not be
the wisest thing for him to take up the
light as the Republican candidate for
Mr. Taft believes Mr. Loeb probably
would attract support from more elements
of the party than would any other man.
Aside from the New York situation, the
tariff came in for a share of considera
tion at today's conference. Both the
President and Mr. Loeb belieev that the
tariff commission and the big appropria
tion for its work have wonderfully
strengtnened the nands of the Repub
licans and offer a common ground on
which the factions of the party can meet.
Taft Is Anxious.
President Taft, It te said, is anxious
that Colonel Roosevelt should make a
careful study of the new law before com
mitting himself in any way. The Colonel
undoubtedly has the insurgent view of
the tarifT pretty well drilled into him
by Senators Beveridge, Brlstow, La Fol
lette and the others who have been to
Sagamore Hill. V
Mr. Taft. the story goes today, wants
the Colonel to have the Administration
There is a strong impression in Bev
erly that Mr. Loeb will see Governor
Hughes tomorrow before the latter goes
to Oyster Bay.
It will be for the Governor, the Colonel
and the other New York leaders to say
whether Mr. Loeb is to have the nomina
tion thrust upon him.

SECRETARY MEYER IS SILENT
Head of Construction Bureau
Opposes New Policies.
30 YEARS' SERVICE IS SEEN
Bureau Chief Who Gives Up Posi

Admiral by Virtue of Long
Service In Office.
WASHINGTON, July 11. Washington
Lee Capps, Captain in the regular Naval
establishment and Rear-Admiral by
virtue of the fact that for nearly seven
years he has been head of the Bureau
of Construction and Repair, today ten
dered his resignation to take effect Oc
tober 1. It has been accepted.
Neither Secretary Meyer nor Admiral
Capps tonight would discuBS the Ad
miral's sudden determination to retire
from the service. Admiral Capps, be
fore a Congressional court last Winter,
bitterly opposed the plans of Secretary
Meyer for a reorganization of the Navy
Capp Opposes New Policy. t
In a formal statement issued tonight
by the Navy Department, the situation
growing out of the difference of opin
ion between the Secretary and the
Chief of the Bureau of Construction
and Repair, was set forth as follows:
This action on the part of Chief Con
structor Capps was prompted by the
fact that he does not find himself, as
stated in hie application, in entire ac
cord with certain details of the reor
ganization policy of the President and Mr.
Meyer. Under these circumstances, Mr.
Meyer deemed it for the best interests
of the naval service to recommend that
Mr. Capps' resignation be accepted and
that he then be transferred to other
New Position to Be Found.
Mr. Capps, it is said, will be assigned
appropriate duty in accordance with his
rank and experience.
The chief constructor will have com
pleted on October 1, 30 years of service in
the Navy and thus be entitled to retire
ment with the rank of Rear-Admiral. In
the mean time he will probably be sent
on a tour of inspection to the West Coast
or to the Philippines to compete the
record of inspection work which he pre
viously has done in that direction.

was thrown at great speed and for a
curve, was misjudged by Moore, and
