Maryland, gives Justice Hughes as his first choice, he will cast his
ballot for Governor Hadley when he learns the fact that Justice
Hughes could not be induced to leave the bench even for the high
office of Vice-President.
Unable to stem the tide of progressive sentiment in the Presi
dent's apartments in the Manhattan Hotel, Chairman Barnes sought
10 give impetus to his view that John Wanamaker should be nomi-,
nated by coming outside where a large number of reporters were gath
ered, calling them to him and asking if they cared to carry a state?
ment for him. On being toid by some that they would do so, he
asked all to gather around him and then dictated the following:
' The Republican battle has been carried on in the interest of good and
intelligent government and straightforward thinking. The Vice-Presidential
candidate to be named by the national committee onght to be a man who fits
in with the meaning of the party. I think that Mr. Wanamaker is such a
man, and I hope that he will be selected when the national committee meets
on November 12.
As soon as it became known in the President's rooms that Mr
Barnes had made this statement Carmi Thompson, secretary to the
President, issued from the guarded portal and announced to the wait
ing newspaper men that Mr. Barnes's expression should be accepted
solely as his personal preference, made entirely on Mr. Barnes's own
respOnsibility. The only second Mr. Barnes was able to secure for
the nomination of Mr. Wanamaker was that of Committeeman
McCullough, of Kentucky.
At 8 o'clock last night the President left for Cincinnati, where
he will cast his ballot, but before doing so he read and approved the
above statement about to be issued by Chairman Hilles. Mr. Taft
left New York confident that Governor Hadley was. in effect, his
running mate._
Governor Herbert S. Hadley, Roosevelt
floor leader at the Chlcago conventlon.
remalned loyal to his party B-ftOT thfl
colortel had been defeated for the nomi?
nation. Though he fought valiantly for
Mr. Roosevelt. the yeung Misfourl r.c.v
ernor. who was the central flgure ln one
of the most rcmarkable demonstrations
of that gatherlng, declared that. hp b
Progressive. lt was his duty to remein
a Republican, and pralsed the platform,
There were some planks which were
omitted whlch I should like to have Been
adopted. but there will he found, I be?
lieve, In the platform nothing that is ob
Jectlonablc to anv Republican. and, on
the whole. it is th" most progressive plat
f.<rm vve have ever presented to tho
American people.
The Governor frequently stated thal he
Baw no need for a thlrd party, and ln a
magailne artlcle publlshed in August he
detailed his reasons for contlnuing wlth
the party with whlch lie had been alli.-d.
About the beginnlng of October ho de?
clared himself for PlgflMaBt Taft, and
SXpeOtOd to take the sturnp for him, but
was forced to cancol all his speaklng
fngagements when he was attacked by
ivy polsoning, contractcd whlle hunting
