OREOONLA.N NEWS BUREAU, Wash
In r ton. Jan. It. Thw, la a strong
suspicion in the mlnda of politician
that the nam of William R. Hearst.
f New Tork la to be entered on th
liit of dark-horse candidates for the
Imocratlc Presidential nomination.
Hearst la not known to b-e a candi
date and haa not publicly to lend hli
dlre to enter the contaat as-alnst
Wilson. Harmon. Clark and others. But
ha haa prominently Identified himself
with tha Wmocratlc party during the
past few weeks, and bis activity Is
responsible) for current rumors.
The fact that, aa things stand today,
no candidate can fro to the Baltimore
convention and command the support
cf two-thirds or even one-half tha
delegation, haa led many to eocpeet
that the Democratic nominee may be
a dark horse, and nnlesa there Is a
change In the situation, unless some
one of tha prominent candidates de
velops unexpected strength between
now and Juno iS. deadlock Is likely
Bltteraeaa la Probable Oatceaae.
Boomers of Wilson, like those who
are boosting; Harmon and Clark and
Underwood, are free to say that their
own candidate will develop strength
sufficient to carry the convention on
an early ballot. If not on tha first bal
lot, but these are the opinions of par
tisans and are generally disputed,
though every one admits that the next
four months may entirely eh an (re the
situation and brlns; some one candi
date decidedly to the front. But un
less there should be some such de
velopment, the light for tha nomination
Is likely to develop bitterness, and In
that event a dark horse may prove
the only solution.
Hearst made a derided tit with the
members of the Democratic National
committee at Its recent session In
Washington, and his speech at the
Jackson day banquet was pronounced
to be far the most noteworthy utter
ance on that memorable occasion.
Hearst outshone Woodrow Wilson, his
address was far superior to that of
Champ Clark, and In fact. Bryan suf
fered by comparison. He appealed to
the audience aa the most Interesting
snd most forceful speaker of the even
ing. This waa the opinion voiced by
scores of Democrats who attended tha
dinner, and praise for Hearst was
heard even amonir the partisan friends
of the leading candidate now seeking
Speech May Term Tide.
It is recalled that William J. "Bryan
won his first Presidential nomination
by a speech, and It would not be
strange if a speech might sway tha
Baltimore convention. In the event of
a deadlock. And If Hearst, at a Jack
son day dinner, where all candidates
carefully prepared their remarks,
could carry off the oratorical laurels
from such men aa Bryan. Wilson and
Clark, why could he not. with proper
preparation, repeat his victory at the
for several years Hearst left the
Democratic reservation and played
politics with a little party of his own.
But he Is now back In the old party,
and his advocacy of Democratic prin
ciples Is aa strong as that of any of
the men who are acknowledged candi
dates for the nomination. Hearst haa
made peace with the old leaders with
whom he has differed, and be haa
gtven Indication of A purpose to
"stand hitched." for awhile at least.
Now that ba has come back Into the
Democratic party of his own accord,
st a time when It Is believed Democ
racy has the best chance In years of
carrying the Presidential election. It
Is only natural that politicians should
seek to discover tha motive back of
Mr. Hearst, and It is only natural to
suppose that he "haa hopes."
Xasse Harare la Geealp.
As a matter of fact. Mr. Hearst pos
sesses some qualifications lacking In
the open candtdatee. He has great
wealth, and he haa a big string of
newspapera In large cities: he has
trusted representatives In all parts of
the United States through whom he
ran operate; and he haa quite a fol
lowing In New Tork State In the rem
nants of the old Independence League.
Moreover, he Is sufficiently radical to
meet the approval of Bryan, for Bryan
has said the party must nominate a
radical If It hopea to win.
Therefore. It la only natural that the
name of Hearst should figure in the
political gossip of tha day. and there
lerhaps is foundation for supposing
that Hearst at least hopes the light
ning may strike him In the event fate
decrees against the men now known
to be running, y Just how much sup
port Hearst oould get In a deadlocked
convention la problematical, but un
questionably be would run stronger as
a dark horse than he would as an out-and-out
candidate. For Hearst Is vul
nerable, and If his name were listed
along with tha names of Wilson. Har
mon and Clark he would suffer from
attacks that would be directed against
Mm between now and the assembling
ef the convention.
But by keeping in the background
and coming forward at the psychologi
cal moment, he might do aa Bryan ld
make a stirring speech and carry off
the nomination. Stranger thlnga have
happened in the Democratic party than
the nomination of Hearst.

The report pays much attention to
the Remsen board, to the activity of
Solicitor McCabe, who was the princi
pal opponent of Dr. Wiley In the de

Wiley be given a free hand in the en

McCabe. This limitation already has
been put Into effect by President Taft.

Dr. Wiley told how most of his rul

there were few cases prepared against
drug law violations because many lines
of Inquiry were taken out of his hands

Virtually the only dissent from the

based upon the irregular employment
