(B y a Washington Official.) In a recently published interview Senator Morgan of Alabama is quoted as saying that when Mr. Roosevelt sees his own nomination is impossible he will throw his strength to Senator Foraker of Ohio, who will be nomi nated. Perhaps Senator Morgan Is the only man of prominence In the po litical world who entertains the beliet that Mr. Roosevelt will not be the nominee o f his party for the Presi dency. Y et it cannot he denied that Mr. Roosevelt’s nomination is not as freely accepted as the inevitable as it was three months ago. The persis tent bitter attacks of the New York Sun are beginning to be felt by the Republican leaders, however baseless and unfounded those attacks may be. No other reason can be assigned for the attitude of the Sun towards Con gressman Littauer than is found in the fact that Littauer is a close per sonal friend of the President. As a glove manufacturer the Con gressman sold the product o f his fac tory to a contractor who in turn fur nished the gloves to the army on a contract entered into between the con tractor and a board o f army officers appointed for the purpose. That the Washington Post has squarely faced about, and from a champion o f L it tauer (he needs no defender) has be come his defamer, is generally accept ed as evidence of the influence exerted by the Sun’s editorials. The rapid advancement of General I>?onard Wood is being used as a pre text for an effort to bring to bear against Mr. Roosevelt the influence oi the Grand Army of the Republic, and WRITE PLAYS, NOT NOVELS By W.
