Despite all contrary disclaimers. It is
suite evident that Senator Haima is out
for the republican presidential nomina
tion. The organs supporting the presi
dential ambitions ot the gentleman
from Ohio are becoming bitter In their
ftght against President Roosevelt, and,
aa the latter haa a very large follow
iowing, there promises to be a warm
contest In the Chicago convention.
., The western public all along haa
been led to believe that Mr. Roosevelt's
nomination was a certainty. Months j
ago it was announced that enough state j
organizationa had declared tor him to
insure his nomination. The president
assumed the popular attitude on all
the great issues arising since hla in
cumbency, and in almost every public
utterance baa discussed the encroach
ments of the trusts. The president has
created at least one new republic on
the western hemisphere, and the nation
haa rejoiced In Its liberty-loving fash
ion. Frauds have been unearthed at
Mr. Roosevelt's instigation, and It can
k u-uthfuny said he haa endeavored
U be the friend of the people." Mr.
Kooeevelt is an "accidental president,"
bat. having become the executive head
eg th nation, he haa acquired practic
ally all of the power which cornea to
an elected president.
While Mr. Roosevelt Is the choice ot
perhaps the majority of the rank and
file "of his party, because of Vf rather
todepeadent political course, Mr. H an
na has the formidable support of that
equally as important class the manu
facturers. Iff one thing to designate a
manufacturer a "trust" and quite an
other to make him believe it. There is
a decided difference of opinion as to
this.. Campaign funds must come from
men of means, and It is said of Mr.
Roosevelt he haa not endeared himself
to. them by his frequent anti-trust
declarations. On the other hand. Sen
ator Hanna haa discreetly refrained
from'ill-Omed reference to the Bnanclal
Interests of the country, which would
lend lm unstinted ttppor, ,,,Hla pop."
'olarlty with the laboring classes has
'lately been exemplified, and all in all
tie Is regarded in many quarters as

-should go. . s j I j
f Of the newspaper which are out for
the Ohio senator the Cincinnati Com
mercial Tribune is most persistent.
Thls paper regards the purposed nom
ination of Mr. Roosevelt as a danger
ous experiment, and it roundly scores
the manner in which the president's
v.orv,Tvim I twins; carried on. In an
ptterance entitled "No Rough Riding
lover the Republican Voters," the Com- ;
merclal Tribune refers to Mr. Roose
velt aa "the professor of the school of
mug wumpery," and that, "to have the
republican voters think and deliberate.
In fatal to the candidacy of Mr. Room- j
Velt." The Tribune has all along been !
ipposing the nomination of Mr. Roose
velt, and during the pant two weeks
has denounced what it regards as the
Indecent haste" In the selection of
'delegates , to the national convention.
i Discussing . a local issue which haa
been fully reported In the Associated
j Press, the Tribune says:
' "We regret that Senator Foraker
should have lent his Influence to any
i snap convention calling or to any at
tempt to Interfere with the ; regular
course of party organization. We hope
i that the reports he haa done so are not
( correct. He has every reason to trust
the voters of the party, and surely does
not desire to commit them to a hasty
decision upon so Important a matter.as
- the selection of a candidate for presi
dent of the United States. He may
desire the nomination of Mr. Roosevelt
but he certainly knows it would be fa
tal at the election, if this nomination
should be the result of the work of a
ellque of officeholders or against the
wishes of the majority of the voters
; of the party.
"There is no need of undue haste.
i Ko one seems to be in a hurry, save

ot tht nomination. Let kew dHb4

The convention dops not meet until
June 21, and the longer Mr. Rooae
velfs candidacy Is discussed the more
correct will be the Judgment of the peo
ple who chooae the delegate. Snap
eonventlona may please Mr. Roosevelt,
but they do not appeal to the people.
"Give the people plenty ot time, they
will do the right thing. They Ul not
betray the party. They have only Its
success and honor at heart. They will
tell the senators and the president ho
they want to lead them."

and hustle tbem himself to the altar.
Aa local potentate, ha haa Issued an
trade that every bachelor in hla domain
must take unto himself a wife during

of a heavy fine. .He further advises the
young women ot Severance to Improve
this -leap-year opportunity by looking
the masculine collection over and pick
ing out what they want.pronuaing them
that It will go hard with any young
man that dares to balk.
That's right! exclaims the New York
Commercial. Hunt the rascals down!
Stop not with a fine, but arm the young
women with shotguns and let them

If these young recreants are so busy
putting the dollar above the roan that
they cant think of marrying, let the
young women aelie both. Let them

It la unfortunate, of course, that the
young omen of Severance should be
forced to adopt such heroic tactics. It
is to be remembered, however, that It
may not be their fault It they poaaesa

Details are published of a wonderful
new motor Invented by Peter Thornley,
an English engineer. The Invention la
considered of such importance that Its
development may result In express rail
way engines running; at twice) Yhelr
present speed at only half the cost and
in Atlantic lines crossing from Liver-
nor.I tn Xew York in three days. It Is
almoat amajl enough to be carried in
a typewriter "case." The new motor Is
capable of developing fifteen horse
power urider a boiler pressure of two
hundred pounds to the square Inch. In
even the best railway locomotive the
steam la admitted after the piston has
moved from five to eight Inches along
the cylinder. Mr. Thornley has de
vised a valve which will admit a given
quantity of steam at every commence
ment of the stroke and so nicely ad
justed that the expansive force of the
steam admitted is Just sufficient to
drive the piston at the end of Its Jour
ney. By the most modest estimate the

Excellent Work of. All PnrUvl-

A stage rehearsal ot Queen Esther
was held In Fisher's opera house last
night. The work of the large chorus
of 75 voice was excellent, and the dif

The soloists were all well up In their
Miss Reba Hobaon, who la to sing the
title role, possesses a soprano vole ot
power and sweetness. Both her vocal
renditions and dramatic work are sure
to bl.e her trtenda. Oeorge C; Wat-
kins, aa Asaauerua the king, will be a
favorite. His deep baas voice la well
adapted to the part assigned him.
Frank Camahan will alng the role of
Hainan, tha premier. In an excellent
manner. He haa a voice of unusual
power and will show it to good ad
vantage in Queen Esther. Tht con
tralto role of Zereah. Haman'a wife,
will be taken by Mrs. Frank Spittle.
This Is a difficult part and gives great
Opportunity for dramatic work. The
duett by Haman and Zeresh are partlc
ularly fine. Jamea Johnaon will use
his rich tenor voice In portraying Mor
decal, the Jew. Thla part Is very high
and requires much ability. That Mr.
Johnson will do It well Is conceded by
all who have heard him. The other
10 solo parts are In competent hands.
The chorus ls large and unusuully

nature yet seen here. The coetunu-s
are gorgeous and will add greatly to
the beauty of the performance.
