Perhaps Senator Morgan Is
the only man of prominence In the po

that Mr. Roosevelt will not be the
nominee o f his party for the Presi

Mr. Roosevelt’s nomination is not as
freely accepted as the inevitable as it

Sun are beginning to be felt by the
Republican leaders, however baseless

No other reason can be assigned for
the attitude of the Sun towards Con

As a glove manufacturer the Con
gressman sold the product o f his fac

contract entered into between the con
tractor and a board o f army officers
appointed for the purpose. That the
