HEW TO POLITICS
Candidacy in Only Part of
Country Taken as Admis
sion He Will Lose.
FRIENDS ARE PROTECTED
Borah, Who Has Won ex-President
Admiration, Rewarded by Prom
ise of Xo Third Ticket to
nREROXTAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
tngton, July 18. Considerable merri
ment was occasioned m nisnmsiuu
hv th. announcement of Senator Dixon
that Colonel Roosevelt will not place
his third-party ticket in the field in
states where progressive candidates for
Senate and House of Representatives
believe such a ticket would Injure their
chances of election. For this an
nouncement was taken as an admission
on the part of the Colonel that he does
not expect success lor nimsen. ana 11
acknowledgment that his own fight
might imperil the political prospects
of his friends.
Just what states the Colonel intends
to scratch off his list has not been
made known and probably will not be
determined fully until after tne colo
nel has had time to correspond with
his various progressive friends. He has
announced, however, that he will not
place a third ticket In tne neia in 101
ho because of the fear that such a
ticket miKht Injure the chances of
Senator Borah, who seeks re-election.
Voloael Admirer of Borah.
The Colonel decided to keep out of
Idaho, notwithstanding the fact that
Senator Borah refuses to bolt the Ke
publican party and become a wearer
of the Bull Moose bandana. Senator
Borah counseled against placing a
third ticket In the field. He told
Colonel Roosevelt that such a move.
In his Judgment, would injure rather
than aid the progressive movement,
and then refused to follow Roosevelt
when the Colonel bolted the Chicago
convention. Nevertheless, the colonel
Is a great admirer of Senator Borah
and wants faim returned to the Senat-9
and rather tlian handicap hlra will
stay out of Idaho this year.
From the announcement m-u2e by
Senator Dixon It Is to be presumed
that other nates will be passed by by
Colonel Roosevelt whenever progres
sive candidates for either branch of
Congress hold the view that his candi
dacy will Injure their prospects. Just
how many of thrse candidates will b
as frank es Senator Borah remains to
be seen. Not all the progressive can
didates will desire the Colonel to keep
out Some will array themselves with
hlni in his fight this Fall and will fig
ure that they will be the stronger if
he has a ticket in their particular
states. But there are others v. ho
agree with Senator Borah that a third
ticket will injure the chances of Re
publican candidates by making more
probable the election of Democratic
Irraonal Factor M ill Be Stroasv
In the campaign this year the per
sonal . equation will be much in evi
dnire. even among progressives. Can
did te tor the Senate and House, as
a genera: rule, will be less concerned
about principle than ever their own
prospects of election, and It will be
ihis i.eraonal equation that will move
some men o this class to suggest to
the Colonsl the advisability of keeping
his third ticket out of their states.
The Interesting thing about the sit
uation, however, is the announced will
ingness of Colonel Roosevelt to make
no fight in those states where his
friends thV.k his candidacy would in
Jure them. I Is something new in
American politics for a candidate for
the Presidency to run In only a part

Lincoln County Farmers Take Op
timistic View of Situation.
SPOKANE. July 18. (Special.)
Lincoln County farmers are taking
a more optimistic view of the coming
crops and state that the yield will be
better than they anticipated a week
or two ago. Mrs. Amanda Sandygren,
an extensive, farmer in the Harring
ton country, says her wheat will yield
between 20 and 25 bushels to the acre
and that her wheat is about the aver
aire in that part of the country.
The estimate of the yield of Spring
wheat about Davenport is placed be
tween 18 and 25 bushels to the acre.
while the yield of the Winter wheat
is Placed ten bushels higher.
Reports from Odessa are coming in
daily that crops are turning out pet
ter than was expected. Yields will be
at least S per cent more wheat this
Fall than last year, and farmers north
of town are expected to report a bum
per crop. John Helnbigner, northeast
of Odessa, has been naming nis re

WASHINGTON, July 18. The Demo
cratic campaign fund contained about
$1,000,000 when Alton B. Farker ran
for President in 1904. according to
W. F. Sheehan, of New York, who tes
tified today before the. Senate commit
tee investigating campaign tunas.
Sheehan then was chairman of the
Democratic National executive com
mittee. Money was sent by the com

"Well, I think he was," Interrupted
the Pennsylvania Senator.
Sheehan said he remembered August
Belmont was a large contributor.
Senator Oliver asked if Thomas F.
Ryan also was a contributor in the
same campaign. The witness respond
ed that he was.
Sheehan wanted the committee to
understand that when he estimated
the Democratic funds In 1904 at $1.000.
000 he was not contradicting August
Belmont, who "guessed on the stand
that the amount was $600,000 or $700.-000.
"It is all a matter of memory," insist
ed Sheehan. "I think the National com
mittee used directly about $800,000. I
think there came through the commit
tee some contributions for specific use
In New York State. I have an impres
sion that amounted to about $200,000."
The witness declared the committee
made a rule at the beginning of the
campaign not to accept money from
any trust. He believed no such contri
butions were made directly or indirectly.
There was $10,000 contributed, be
gan Sheehan, "by the .American Sugar
Refining Company not by Mr. Have-
meyer to the state committee. Before
the check was cashed, we heard about
it and it was returner!.
Many Solicitors Active.

"I recollect Mr. Belmont chiefly be
cause, of his testimony," replied Shee
han. "I was away up in Maine much
of the time and did not have so much
to do with the raising of funds. There
were others who contributed more than
that sum, but I cannot remember them."
"Who was most active In securing
money?" asked Clapp.
"Why. Senator, various people were
soliciting on their own responsibility.
The members of the committee were
active. People were circularized. We
published requests for funds. Demo
crats, or others interested In the suc
cess, of the ticket, came in to inquire If
It were satisfactory for them to get
out and raise some money."
Sheehan said the late Daniel S. La
ment assisted him In collecting money.
Colonel Lam on t had been connected
with corporations, he said, but he could
not remember what ones.
