IN THE OPEN
Mr. Roosevelt's Friends Think As
pirants for the Presidency Should
If He Is to Meet With Opposition
They Want to Know
JUw York Sun Speoial Service.
Chicago, Dec. 9.Walter Wellman,
In a Washington special to the Record
Does Senator Hanna intend to be a
candidate for the presidency, or does
he not? The friends of President
Roosevelt want to know The aie
beginning to insist that if there aie to
be other aspirants for the republican
nomination next ear the time has
come when they should show their
hands. They say they have no objec
tion to the appearance of other can
didates in the fieldthis is a fiee
country and any man has the right to
aspire to the piesidencjbut fah
play demands, they maintain, that if
there is" to be a contest over the nomi
nation those who are to make it
should delay no longer in an
nouncing their purpose.
There is no doubt as to where Mr.
Roosevelt stands. He has ne,\er
cealed his wish to be nominated by the
republican party and to be re-elected
by the votes of the people He was
called by fate to the ofhce. of piesident
and in that office he has done the best
he could. He stands on his recoid.
He has insisted with his intimate
friends and his political ad\isers that
if the party is not content with the
record he has made and does not wish
to make him its standard beaier, he
will not attempt to gain the nomina
tion by use of the power of his office.
He has more than once declared that
he will not peimit himself to be nomi
nated virtually by fedeial office hold

WEAVER FAVORS PARKER
Former Populist Candidate Is Now a Good
From the Journal Bureau, Colorado Building,
Washington, Dec 9 General James B
Weaver of Iowa, twice candidate foi pies
ident, once as a gieenbackei and once as
a populist, is in Washington holding polit
ical conferences He is a democrat now
and for Judge Paiker of New York foi
If Parker is nominated he declaied
to-day "democrats can cairv thiee con
gressional districts m Io^va and the can

General Weaver's declaration for Par

son's awakes much interest in the
changed attitude of men who weie foi
merly classed as radicals Some politi
cians aie convinced that Judge Parker
will be as satisfactory to ladicals as he
is to conservatives, and thus would be
sure to reunite the part} So convinced
is General Weaver of Judge Parker s su

He has forbidden his supporteis to
Bet in motion the agencies which con
trol delegates in many states, notably
in the south, almost entnely thru the
influence of those who hold federal
appointment. If the president is to
be nominated at all he insists that it
shall be by the spontaneous voice of
the party. He does not want the
nomination and will not seek to get it
in anv other way.
If there are to be other candidates,
the president's friends argue, it is only
fair that they should piesent them
selves before the party and the coun
try now. It is not fair, in their es
timation, that influential republicans
should linger in the backgiound, more
or less secietly discussing the avail
ability of the president as a candidate
next year, scrutinizing hi=? record and
pointing out the difficulties that may
stand in the way of his re-election,
creating a feeling of distrust and anxi
ety, as long as no other aspirant is in
As Senator Foraker has pointed out
in an interview, objections can be
raised to any candidate, no matter who
he may be. There is no such thing as
the ideal man, satisfactory to every
one. If there are other candidates, or
are to be others, they should have
their names announced.
