Roosevelt Says He Will Not Run
ORCHARD ON STAND.
LEAVES CLEAR FIELD TO OTHERS
Quotes His Statement of 1904 and
Says He Has Not Changed
Washington, Dec. 12. President
Roosevelt will not be a candidate for a
third term. All doubt on this point
was last night dispelled by the author
ative statement, from the White House,
that Mr. Roosevelt still adheres to the
declaration of renunciation made on
the night of the election three years
It appears that the president had
been awaiting the call for the Repub
lican national convention to afford the
proper opportunity for making his po
sition clear and unmistakable, thus
leaving the field clear for otber de
clared or receptive candidates for the
Republican nomination. The presi
dent's statement follows:
"In view of the calling of the Repub
lican convention, the president makes
the following statement:
" 'On the night after election! made
the following announcement:
" 'I am deeply sensible of the honor
done me by the American people in
thus expressing their confidence in
what I have done and have tried to do,
I appreciate to the full the solemn re
sponsibility this confidence imposes
upon me, and I snail do all that lies in
tny power not to forfeit it. On the
4th of March next, I shall have served
three and a half years and this three
and a half years constitutes my first
term. The wise custom which limits
the president to two terms regards the
substance and not the form, and nnder
no circumstances will I be a candidate
for or accept another nomination."

Will Again Recite Grewsome Account
of His Many Crimes.
Boise, Dec. 11. Charging that Geo.
A. Fettibone, the defendant at bar, is
the most guilty of all those charged
with causing the death ofJex-Governor
Frank Steunenberg, James H. Hawley
outlined the state's case yesterday.
Little effort at oratory was made by the
chief prosecutor, but he plainly told
the jury what it is proposed to prove.
For two hours he spoke of what he
i termed the most gigantic conspiracy in
the annals of crime, always keeping in
the foreground the part which it is al
leged Fettibone took in it.
The taking of evidence began at the
afternoon session and before court ad-
ourned for the day the state had estab
lished the corpus delecti, clearing the
way for Harry Orchard, who will today
take tbe witness stand and for the sec
ond time tell to a jury the history of
blood. Orchard was brought from the
penitentiary to the city yesterday.
Senator Borah, who has arrived from
Washington, conducted the examina
tion of state's witnesses.
Witnesses placed on the stand by
the state proved by hotel registers
and other evidence that Harry Orchard
and Jack Bimpkins were in Caldwell at
the time of the assassination of Steu
nenberg. The defense made no effort
to cress-examine the witnesses.
At the conclusion of Hawley's state
ment Durrow announced that the
defense would reserve its statement un
til the conclusion of the state's case.

Martial Law Expected at Goldfield
When He Arrives. s
Goldfield, Nev., Dec. if,. It was re
ported here last ' night that General
Funston is to come to Goldfield person
ally to take charge of the situation here.
More troops, it was also said, may be
sent. Governor John Sparks arrived
yesterday afternoon from Carson and
had a conference with colonel Aiired
Reynolds, in command of the Federal
troops here. Meetings of tha executive
committee of the Goldfield Miners'
union and of the Goldfield Mineowners
association were held last night.
It is believed here that President
Roosevelt is responsible fcrthe decision
of General Funston to come to bold'
field ; that the intention is to take the
conduct of affairs out of the hands of
Governor Sparks and the Esmeralda
county officials and that martial law
will be declared in Goldfield jmmedi
ately upon the arrival of General Fun
Doubtless the request for this drastic
action by the president oame from the
mine operators here, who are fearful of
the consequences when the attempt to

intention to resume operations tomor
mediately referred directly to commit
tees, was discussed in the senate today.
Carter, of Montana, presented a pie
pared list of instances wheie the heads
of executive departments had addressed
the senate requesting the passage oi
certain bills. He said that Teller, of
Colorado, had himself sent bills to the
senate for passage when he was secre
tary of the interior.
Aldrich said that, no matter how old
the practice, it should be stopped; that
the executive departments had no right
to seek legislation in such direct man
ner. After speeches by a number of otber
senators a communication from the sec
retary of the interior was referred to
tbe committee cn rules with a request
to report promptly what action should
be taken to stop the practice.
A report was requested from the sec
retary regarding clearing house certifi
cates, Panama bonds, certificates of in
debtedness and other matters.

What Was Expected, But Third Term

New York, Dec. 12. Regarding Pres
ident Roosevelt's announcement that
he adheres to his determination not
again to be a candidate, the New York
papers this morning say:
Herald Those who from the first
have had full faith in the sincerity of
Mr Roosevelt's declaration that he
would not accept a nomination will
now say, "Why, of course." On tbe
other hand, those who have argued
that he could not decline if the conven
tion should overwhelmingly demand
him as a candidate will remark, "We
shall see." And there yon are.
Times Mr. Roosevelt's statement is
what those who respeted him most and
knew bim best expected him to make
No diffeient statement was possible.
World So far as words go, President
Roosevelt could not take a more posi
tive stand. At this late day can he
etop it? Can he turn back the tide?
Suppose the Roosevelt sbouters, as
Oovernor Hoch, of Kansas, bas threat-ened,-
ride over the convention like a
herd of Texas steers, will he still de
fine? Will he be able to decline?

Wednesday December II,
Washington, Dec. 11. Passionate
oratory marked the proceedings cf the
senate today. Senator Jenerson Davis,
of Arkansas, who when elected declared
that he would attack the trusts imme
diately after taking his seat, fulfilled
his promise, although he was a lew
days late in doing so. The speech was
filled with sensational declarations and
was given with that vigor for which the
Arkansas senator is famous in his own
state. Quaint phrasing, pointed de
nunciations and evidences of Intense
emotion characterized his remarks. He
was given a careful hearing by senators
and the galleries weie well tilled
throughout the time he held the floor.
Beginning shortly before 1 o'clock, tie
spoke for a little more than an hour.
At the close of the speech the senate
went into executive session and at 12:10
The bouse was not in session today.
After declaring that his bill, rigorous
ly enforced, would kill the trusts, with
dramatic effect Mr. Davis challenged
any senator tastep forward and contest
the issue with him.
Speaking of the great expense of the
government, Mr. Davis said:
"Our president, and 1 speak oi him
in the most respectful terms, besides
his salary of $50,000 a year, and I eay
that is not excessive, is paid by this
congtees $15,000 a year for traveling
expenses, and approximately $113,000
annually for living expenses. Ah, Mr.
President 1 This is enormous! This is
unreasonable! Tbe president of the
United States has five children, I bs
lieve. I believe they should live in ac
cordance with the dignity of the presi
dent's position the highest place on
earth but, Mr. President, I have
Roosevelt 'skinned a city block' in the
matter of family, and it does not take
$113,000 for my living expenses. No,
sir! The greatest president that ever
lived on this earth, that was ever in
augurated in this capitol, in my judg
ment, was 'Old Hickory' Jackson, who
rode his horse to the White house,
dressed in a suit of blue jeans."
The senator denounced stock gam
bling, and Bald he wonld do away with
gambling in cotton, grain and the ne
cessities of life.

Denver, Dec. 10. The executive
board of the Western Federation of
Miners tonight Issued the following
statement concerning the present
controversy between t.he Goldfield
Mineowners Association and the
Goldfield Miners' Union:
"On December 6, President Roose
velt Issued a proclamation ordering
federal troops to proceed to Gold
field, Nev., ostensibly for the pur
pose of protecting life and property,
That there was ever any danger to
either person or property Is empha
tically denied by the officers of Es
meralda county, and by the mer
chants and citizens of Goldfield. The
only reason for the present trouble
was the decision of the mine opera'
tors to force upon the miners a scrip
that would not be taken at par by
the railroad company, the Wells
Fargo Express Company, the post
office, the stores or the boarding
houses. Neither would the mineown
ers guarantee that they would re
deem this scrip at any time in the
"In refusing to accept this worth
less scrip in exchange for their hard
labor, the miners of Goldfield are
taking a manly stand against the
usurpation of governmental tunc
tions by unreliable banking firms
which assume the right to set aside
the legal money of the nation.
We desire to call the attention of
the American people to the awful
disaster at Monongah, W. Va., where
500 coal miners were murdered by
the capitalist system in its greed for
profits. Had President Roosevelt
been as anxious to enforce the laws
in West Virginia, had he considered
as well the protection of the lives of
those miners by demanding that the
mineowners safeguard their em
ployes against unnecessary dangers,
as he is to send the regular army to
crush an organization whose only
aim is to better the conditions and
make happier the lives of the work'
ing class, 500 blackened corpses
would not today be laid upon the
altar of greed at Monongah, W. Va
around which weep widowed wives
and orphaned children.

early Monday in mine No. 8, was ex
tinguished, it is said, at noon yesterday.
The fourth day was a repitltion of Its
three predecessors in the matter of pa

was served at intervals by the company
