DEWEY A3 A PRESIDENTIAL CAN
DIDATE. During Admiral Dewvy's long home
ward journey so many conflicting re
ports filled the press concerning his
views on the Philippine question that
the American public waited with In
tense longing to catch his first ex
pressions on the Olympla's arrival In
New York harbor. It fell to the lot
of the leading and about the only re- the
specUble paper la the country oppos
ing the president's Philippine policy to
SHUie the first interview with the ad
miral Dewey wheeled half way round on his
Ir the Associated Press account of the heel and said briskly: 'There are a
The entire Interview as published In
the ' Times" Is too long for reproduc
tion lu these columns, but the following
extracts will serve to show the demo
crats of Oregon what the admiral
thinks of the Philippine situation and
also of the gabble that has been heard
about his acceptance of the presidential
nomination. The 'Times'' says:
Admiral Dewey was seen this morn
ing on Ms llwhip. the Olympla, as she
lay at anclusr at the southwest spit
He was busy writing letters In his cab
in th breech of an l-lnch gun at his
elbow, when the first visitors to the
flagship boarded. He made his ap
pearance In a few minute on ths quar-
ter deck, dressed In the fatigue uiu
form of an .idmlral. and his elastic step
showed that he was far from being the
physical wreck thst the American peo
ple have pictured to themselves.
lie emphatically expressed his abso
lute confidence In the ability of the
United States to settle the question of
the Philippines, and as emphatically
declined, even with a show of Ir
ritation, to talk about the attitude of
Admiral Diedertchs at Manila. He
effectively punctured the talk of his
arceptimr the nomination for the
presidency, and denied that ths Fill
olnoe were capable of running their
own government. He spoke In a san
guine way of his health. Agulnaldo
he stamped as a figurehead.
When asked what he thought of the
mention of his name for the presidency,
the gallant seaman braced his should
ers, thrust out his right hand expres
sively and laughed good naturedly be
fore he replied:
Th-y don't know me.H
-General Joe Wheeler has been
mentioned as your running mate."
Well, well. Is that true? A fine
mess we two would make of It The
army and nary. That's too good, really.
to be true. Tou know the old saying.
Cnce a soldier always a soldier.
That covers Wheeler's case.
Then it is once an Admiral, always
an admiral," was suggested.
Yes that covers my case." laughed
But the change would be only to

IiO much of a change, too much,"
replied Dewey. "Now, Wheeler has
had some politic.! training in his
life, but for me. my son, I know as

dog's head and dismissing the subject

appointing of h' existence has been
going on apace In many widely sepa
rated sec'lcns of die Natl -a.
It now appears, however, that the
New York Post was not the only paper
to which the admiral accorded the
courtesy of an Interview. In fact he has
talked with several papers since his
flret appearance oft Sandy Hook. These
various Interview have all been of
ahoiit the same purport, so far as the
actual expressions attributed to the
admiral are concerned, but the lm
porunt difference may be noted that
he Is more fully q ioted In some papers
than In others.
Among the eastern exchanges

The ' Times" Is known far and wide as
one of the leading and most reliable
democratic pipers In the country. What

of the American forces?"

"Some of them, I doubt not. are now

the great majority of them have the
