REPOBUCAKS CASTING AROUND
The Kepublican party on the mainland is on
still-hunt for a Moses to lead the Children out
" the Wilderness, and Governor Hadley of Mis-
iri is trying to make ji noise like that Closes.
i4fact, the noise he is making sounds more sub
mit ial than anything of recent mouths.
Hadley-"is 4he brilliant young lawyer whose
irthoue."so brightly and briefly -at the Ke
lblican ; national convention in Chicago last
inie. Some day the inside story of that conven
ion w ill be told by one of the dial f-dozeir men
ho can tell it. One of them is Roosevelt
nother is Senator Dixon of Montana. Con
rTsman McKiuley, Taffs manager, is a third.
nator IJwt is another. The story will involve
:i offer niade to Hadley to; accept the ! Kepub-
ican nomination, an offer said to have come
rum the councils of the stand-pat. Taft leaders.
Those who remember the "stormy days of that
invention will recall the attempt made to stam-
ede the delegates for Hadley. What prevented
lie success of the movement has never ' been
;uown outside of the few men most intimately
on corned. The1 iopular story is that Hadley
iccepted the nomination conditional upon
!oosevelt's assent, for Hadley up to that hour
i ad been Koosevclfs floor leader and that
Roosevelt refused to release his young lieuten-
mt and refused to tak the back seat hiniself.
There was an hour when the nomination of Had
Iev could have coalesced that fighting group of
Progressives and the grim but despairing "old
uard." The hour passed. Hadley swallowed
a pill so bitter that thenceforth he1-took' no fur
(her part in the convention, and Taft was nominated.
Hadley stayed with the Kepublican party,
making a brilliant fight in Missouri during the
recent campaign. He.is a born leader of men,
a magnetic speaker, "aggressive, of -personality
and a gcxl politician. It is not at all surpris
ing tliat Kepublican leaders are turning to him.
Of course there, will be talk in "administra
tion circles'' that Taft Will set to work at once
to "rehabilitate the party,;' but it is doubtful if
Taft will seriously try it, and still more doubt
