WILSON AND NEXT TERM
A good many people hang to the
notion that a strict reading ot the
Baltimore platform takes Mr. W il
son out of the equation for 1916.
But the practical method of looking
at the matter was expressed by
Speaker Champ Clark, at the time
he broke with the administration on
the Paoama Canal tolls matter, and
declared that if Presidant Wilson’s
policies were successful that the
country would demand his renomi
nation in 1916; and if his policies
were a failure then the nomination
would not he worth having. It is
doubtful tf there has been as violent
a case of presidential itch in recent
years as that which has attacked
Speaker Clark. In consequence he
manufactured a number of panaceas
to remedy the evils of the presiden
cy, aud he has recently blossomed
out as the advocate of a one term of
s i x years, because, he declares,
“ the president spends most of his
first term trying to get back again ”
