NEW YORK, Nov. 2L-Senator Marcus
A. Hanna, of Ohio, Is a candidate for
President of the United States to suc
ceed President Roosevelt. Falling in
that, he will exert even' effort to nomi
nate Governor-elect Myron T. Herrick. of
Ohio. Furthermore, Senator Thomas a
Piatt, of New York, has been, or -will
he. asked to help nominate the former or
the latter as conditions may dictate.
Further, the Ohio Senator vrill fight
the confirmation of General Leonard
Wood, nominated by the President to be
Major-General. unless General Wood dis
avows his acts with relation to the
prosecution and conviction of Estes G.
Rathbone. ex-Director-General of Posts
In Cuba. Until tho Wood controversy
shall be settled, with respoct to the de
mands of Rathbone and his friends,
President Roosevelt will not receive an
answer from Senator Hanna as to wheth
er he will continue as chairman of the
National committee: and if the claims
of Rathbone and his friends are not met
with proper consideration, In the opinion
of Senator Hanna, then he will not act
as chairman of the National committee.
Senator Hanna Is at the "Waldorf, where
his friend. Governor-elect Herrick, has
been for a wcok. The latter came to
New Tork as the advance agent of the
managor of the McKlnley compalgn. The
Cleveland man met Governor Odell
Tuesday night late at the Republican
Club, and until early Into the morning
the Govornors of the Empire and Buck
eye states conferred with others. It Is
said now that the Ohio leaders as repre
sented by Senator Hanna and Governor
elect Herrick, are satisfied they cannot
trust Governor Odell, to say nothing of
the doubts they entertain of his ability
to bring a New York delegation t6 the
National Republican Convention which
he can control: therefore, they believe it
the bottor course to seek the alliance
with Senator Piatt
Such a condition of affairs, in the event
that the sonlor New York Senator shall
consent to ally himself and his follow
ers with Senator Hanna and his organ
ization, may result In a compact between
Governor Odell and the President. The
President would, In fact, be forced Into
such an alliance to save himself.
Thus a war to the knife would be pre
cipitated between the President and the
Govornor and their followers on one side,
and Senator Piatt and his friends on the

YOUNG FAVOES THE CANTEEN
Chief of Staff Says Experience Has
Proved It Is Needed.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 21. Although he
has held his office for only a few months,
Lleutcnant-Gencral Young, chief of staff,
has made a report to the Secretary of
War. It Is for the most part a compila
tion of recommendations made by subordi
nate officers. General Young urges the
ro-ostabllshment of the canteen. Regard
ing the general staff system he says:
"The experience gained during this short
period does not afford sufficient basis for
an extensive discussion of the merits of
the system, which should be deferred un
til experience in Its actual administration
has extended over a greater period. In
the results thus far attained, the wisdom
of the authorities in promoting this mea
sure seems fully Justified."

HE STANDS BY WOOD
Root Sends Good Report to
ARMY OFFICERS ARE QUOTED
Newspaper Man Who Was In Cuba at
Time of the Revolution Tells
What He Knows of Alleged
Bribes by Gamblers.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2L Secretary
Root, in response to a request from the
military committee, today presented a re
port upon the military record of General
Wood. It Is a strong confirmation of
that officer. The Secretary reviews his
career, pointing out that he was first
a line officer and then became a surgeon.
When a surgeon he asked for and ob
tained command of troops in the Geronl
mo campaign and in this capacity Mr.
Root appends letters of commendation
by General Miles and the late General
Lawton. Secretary Root, In his letter,
does not make any reference or reply
to tho charges that have been made
against General Wood as Military Gov
ernor of Cuba.
Herbert J. Brown, a newspaper man,
who was In Cuba during the American
occupation was the first witness today.
Mr. Brown told the committee he had ob
tained the affidavits made by sharehold
ers of the Jal Alal Company, which had
been filed by Major Rathbone. In the
affidavits, the shareholders declared their
stock had been assessed for the purpose
of purchasing presents which were given
by the gambling establishment to General
and Mrs. Wood.
Members of the committee took great
Interest in these charges, and questioned
the witness concerning the affidavits.
Mr. Brown was questioned also In re
gard to them charges that General Wood
knew the character of the Jal Alal Com
pany when he argued in favor of granting
a concession to operate.
When reference to this charge was
made by Mr. Brown, he was asked by
Senator Cockerlll to substantiate his as
sertion. ' He did so by directing atten
tion to official publications in Havana
newspapers showing the nature of the Jal
Alai establishment. The statement in
cluded a copy of the compan's bjlaws
and It was declared these had been sup
pressed by General Wood In his state
ment to the War Department concerning
the establishment. The ground gone
over by Mr. Brown Is covered in the gen
eral statement of charges filed with the
committee by Major Rathbone. It Is ex
pected Brown will again be called before
the Investigation is concluded.
After Mr. Brown left the committee
room Major Rathbone resumed his state
ment where he left off yesterday. He
was examined closely In regard to his
charges that General Wood used coercion
and undue Influence with the courts In
getting Instructions which were unfavor
able to Major Rathbone on his trial in
connection with the postal-fraud cases.
One member of the committee stated
today he believed nearly a month will bo
consumed In the Inquiry Into the charges
filed against General Wood.
In the three hearings given Major Rath
bone the committee has reached only the
first specification of his charges.
"If GAieral Leonard Wood "were on trial
for his life, he would not receive Instruc
tions from the court more favorable than
the rulings which have been made by tho
Senate military committee In the conduct
of the present Investigation." said a mem
ber of the committee tonight, when asked
concerning the methods used in details
which the various witnesses examined.
It is believed that this evidence will go
before the Senate in extra session, and in
the event of a decision by the committee
favorable to General Wood, the fight will
be transferred to the floor of the Senate.
A request has been made that the com
mittee subpena a number of Army of
ficers who served in Cuba with General
Wood, but thus far no action has been
taken bjr tho committee In that direction.
