JAY HOUSE ON HENRY ALLEN.
Topeka Writer Tells cf Mort At
. - abaugh'g Vision, Which Came
. Topeka, Feb 18. One day early in
January the writer was ia Morten Ai
baugh's office ia the federal buflding
in Topska. . The conversation con-
. ceroed itself with toe email change
of poetical gossip then' current acd
0 the writer asked Mr. Afcaufeb wheth
er he thought Henry Alea wouM
take the nomination or. governor
which the Bull Moose cohorts .then
were trying to thrust upon hfan. 'He
'will,' Albaugh replied. ."Henry is not
a caodidiate now and he has no Ma
"that fee ia going to be a, candidate.
But. he to as emotional as a prima
damna. The first tfae they. get him
: fa, a comer, the Bul. Moosers will
- start a ,pow-wow. Henry 'a reeungs
wtu Ka -wTofK-M unon. and finai'v tJhev
owiB overpower ihta. Lit the ejstf he.
wfl anise with tears in, his eyes..He
will fhokje wiifch enfotion "and this vodcf
wiil falter 'and break. But softer flut
tering a fitUe Henry. wiH manage 'to
say, 'I will take tt.' The propnecy
bee'emea an "interesting contribution
' . to Cue- records of Kansasi, po'ltics 'be-
... . ... .
icaHaa of its accuracy and -j;or .tnax
reason to set down, here. .A the end
. of a ail day powwow to which dthe
Buffi Meosers sought tp.o reach all of
the minor, chorda of Atien'sj nature, a
political necromancer from! Chicago,
.Raymond Robyn'a by name opened
up wo. iromoiM sura, m w cyuvuu
elcW.af Bobym's epeech Aten, arose
with tea re hi Ms eyes. He .choked
hvwhi emotion and bis Voice' fattened
and broke. But fitter stuttering a lit-
;jlnj AJfea the Bull looser have
picked the most aocplfeked salve
spreadeij in, the Kansas onatcrioaj
tk&i. As a maoiDuiatior of tflia soft
pedajl Alien, is a great artist, and if
graceful l and good humored talk' of
the sfter-djnner type were a factor ifl
the gubernatorial campaign' he might
pcCla, iat of votes. But he, lacks the
frenty necessary .to rabble-rousing.
He "bJams 'em on the .wrist instead
of hitting them In the face and' for
coat reason is less effective dm at po
st lead campaign than. Stubbe, Bri&tow
or aay -of the other orators of" the
:. trodetwofisted type produced by po
Kco cefflditions in 'Kansas in the
past eight or ten. years. Henry leaves
them laughing when he says goodbye.
Not political orator swings many vote
unless he can work his audience into
a fenzy of indignation over the wrong
tt has suffered at the hands cf his po
litical opponents. And so, the gist
f opinion in poetical circles is that
Align will poll not much more than
the actual Bull Moose stnefgth,..
