Pennsylvania Governor Says
: Roosevelt Should Fall in
. Line With Old Party.
COLONEL POORLY ADVISED
Keystone -State Republicans Will
Support Nominee of Regular Con
vention Declares Big Elk
Who Is Visiting City.
Governor Tener. of Pennsylvania, a
big Elk and a big man. Is attending
the grand lodge, and has with him a
committee of his state to select a site
for the Pennsylvania building at the
San Francisco exposition. He pro
phesied the re-election of President
Taft. and speaking of National political
"We have general primaries In Penn
sylvania, with opportunity on the part
of the citizenship for the freest ex
pression of opinion and choice. The
Republican organization Itself was
favorable to the renomlnatlon of Mr.
Taft, but Roosevelt delegates were
chosen by the voters. There was no
constraint exercised by the dominant
political organization and the result
was accepted In good faith and in good
humor as the expression of the will of
the Republican voters. If Mr. Roosevelt
had been nominated at Chicago he
would have received the hearty sup
port of every man in Republican poli
tics who had favored Mr. Taft at the
primaries. Now that President Taft
has been renominated by the Republi
can convention he will, I am confident,
receive the support of the overwhelm
ing majority of Republican voters and
will carry the state by a splendid
Third Party Talk Weak.
"What about a third party movement
In your state?" was asked.
"There was some talk of that kind.
In uncertain tones," replied the Gov
ernor, "Just after the Chicago con
vention, but it never was strong or
definite and even if put into effect. In
the form of a new party, I do not be
lieve that such a third party would
gain any foothold among Republican
voters. Why should it? Pennsylvan
lans are loyal to Republican principles
and to the Republican standard. They
are not likely to desert their party,
with its splendid record for good, with
out some deep reason, some over
mastering facts that appeal to their
intellects. They are a strong, self
controlled body of people and will not
be overcome by impulse.
"Pensylvanla has shared with -all
otber states of the Union In the pros
perity that has marked the whole Na
tion under Republican rule. There al
ways Is something to correct In every
party, Just as there is something to
correct in every family. That seems
to go along with active progressive
human-nature. But the patty in the
past has managed to correct what
needed correction, - without going to
smash or calling In outside help, and
It will do so again. What would you
think of a family that could' not com
pose the differences that might arise
among its members, but would insist
on breaking np the whole household be
cause one strong member wanted to
have his own wayT The Republican
family in the United States is not that
kind of a family, and events will prove
this as the campaign goes on. Mr.
Taft will grow in the esteem of the
country the more his character and
his record are examined. He is a
splendid type of American manhood
sincere. Just, sober-minded. He does
not know how to play to the galleries,
but he does know how to deal with
fairness and Justice among his fellow
citizens. He has not tried and will not
try to set one American citizen
against another, under any pretense
that classes and masses exist in our
country. He knows that there la no
such thing as classes and masses in
the United States, but that we all of as
stand upon the common ground of
American citizenship with fair and
with equal opportunity for advance
ment in honor and wealth.
CUcifO Convention Regular.
"The rich and distinguished men of
our country today were the poor and
struggling of yesterday, and the
wealthy and honored of tomorrow will
be chosen from among those men of
brains and energy and character who
are fighting for their chance today."
"The Chicago convention was the
properly and legally organized rep
resentative assemblage of the Repub
lican party, conducted according to the
established rules of the Republican
party. In all these respects, it was
precisely similar to the convention
which nominated Colonel Roosevelt- If
Colonel Roosevelt had been nominated
by this convention, I would have given
him my hearty support, as I did when
he was put In nomination by a similar
convention, governed by similar rules.
"It Is surprising to me that Colonel
Roosevelt, who has shown himself here
tofore to be a courageous fighter and a
loyal party man. should now threaten
injury to the party which has so
signally honored him In the past, and
this In spite of the fact that it is Im
possible to show in what manner this
constituted Republican body has done
him any injustice. He made a strong
fight and was fairly defeated for the
nomination. The Colonel has been
badly advised. Whatever he personally
may finally decid'3 to do, I am confident
that those Republicans who freely ex
pressed their preference for him as a
candidate will . refuse to desert their
party. The fact that most of the men
in public life who .were among Colo
nel Roosevelt's most distinguished sup
porters at Chicago have absolutely re
Timed to consider any question of a
third party gives us assurance of what
the rank and file of Republican voters
will do when this matter presents Itself
to their minds on election day. I have
faith In the sober sense of the Ameri
can people and I have no doubt of the
re-elecion of President Taft."

Councilman Maguire at the meeting of
the City Council yesterday morning,
when the vote was taken for president

Councilman Maguire made objection.
