THIRD TERM OBJECTION
COINED BY ROOSEVELT
Present Term Really Is First to
Which He Was
By W. W. Jermane.
Washington, Oct. 22.The livelieBt
political subject in Washington iust
now is as to whether President Boose
velt will accept renomination under
any circumstances. Three months ago
this question was promptly and em
phatically answered in the negative by
every man who stood in a close rela
tion to the president. Now it is differ
ent. It is the firm conviction of three
fourths of the leaders of the republi
can party that popular sentiment will
BO shape itself before the national con
vention of 1908 as to amount to a call
to duty upon the president.
Even Mr. Roosevelt's closest political
friends admit there are circumstances
under which he or any other man would
be compelled, as a matter of public
duty, to accept. Leading republicans
do not take the "third term" proposi
tion as seriously as the president does.
The president himself conceived and
published the idea that his present term
Is his second term.
Really His First Term.
As a matter of fact, strictly speaking,
it is his first term to which the people
o- TAnann for the nresF- Mr-
as a reason for the pres i
ent's accepting or declining the nomi
nation. The real question is, can the
president, who has created by his own
aggressive policies an unusual situation
in his partv, refuse to carry out the
work he has so wtll begun 1 It is ap
parent now that many of the reforms
which the president has suggested and
some which have already begun, or will
have been started before the convention
meets in 1908, will not be perfected at
thend of his present term of office.
Senator Elkins, who was not in ac
cord with the president in the matter of
railroad Tate legislation, made the state
ment a few days ago that the president
will be his own successor. He said the
would demand it and the presi
ent be forced to accept as a
matter of public duty. Representative
Babcock, who was Washington a
few days ago, was asked by a friend
what he thought about the next nomi
nee for president.
Cannot Decline* Ha 3ays
4'I have believed for six months,'1
eaSd Mr. Babcock, who is an unusually
far-sighted politician, "that the presi
dent will be renominated. H% will be
renominated under circumstances which

son has accomplished a surprise for the
world. He Has worked out
will not admit of his declining. His I* solved. I scoured the country to
policies have been such that a situation
has been created which no either candi
date we could name could so well meet.
I know it is distasteful to the presi
dent to have the leaders of his party
speculate on the possibility of his ac
cepting another nomination. I hesitate,
therefore, to express an opinion for
publication, but the conditions ought
to be patent to any one. The people
will demand the president's renomina
tion. and how can he decline it I
believe he would be elected lay. a much
more pronounced popular majority than
was given to him in 1904."
This is the expression of the stalwart
wing of the republican party in Wis
consin. The other wing goes even a
little farther. Senator La Pollette says
that Eoosevelt is the only republican
mentioned who can be elected in 1908.
Boot, Taft and Shaw Inactive.
It is significant that men like Boot,
Taft, and even Shaw, who have been
mentioned as presidential candidates,
have taken no steps to build an organi
zation. Secretary Shaw has recently
given his friends an impression that
his presidential candidacy is out of
commission. Mr. Shaw has said private
ly to friends that he believed popular
sentiment would, compel the president
to accept renomination.
It will be remembered that Uncle Joe
Cannon, who is very close to the presi
dent, promptly arrested a movement
begun in his own behalf and declared
from the platform in the Maine cam
paign "that stranger things might hap
E than the re-election of President
A situation may be presented in the
fall elections soon to occur that will
make the president's nomination im
perative. If the election in New York
should indicate that the radical forces
of society are likely to endanger the
-election of a republican president in
1908 the republicans would turn to
President Eoosevelt as one who would
be certain of re-election. Every candi
date for office on a republican ticket
would be anxious to have at the head
of the national ticket in 1908 a leader
who could insure victory. This, element
alone would have much to do with shap
ing sentiment in the next national con
To Check Hearst Peril.
If Hearst should be elected governor
of New York he would be a formidable
candidate for the democratic nomina
tion for president. He would probably
be able to nominate himself iust as he
did in New York. He would at once
become a menace to the business inter
Leading republicans here do not be
live that they could afford to take any
risks by nominating for president a can
didate against whom any charge of
corporate affiliation or interest could
be brought. They would be looking for
a vote-getter. One of the president's
closest friends said today that he could
imagine one condition under which the
president would yield to the unanimous
call of his party and that would be to
save the country from Hearstism. ""It
would be the delight of Mr. Eoosevelt's
^life to trim Hearst," said he.
While the national convention is
nearly two years away the chances are
that popular sentiment will be suffi
ciently crystallized one year from now
to indicate beyond a doubt just who
th* candidate of each political party
will be. Political events move rapidly
these^days and sentiment is quick to an
ticipate political conventions.
More Reforms Due^'

to Evlyn B. Baldwin, the founder of

The messages were picked up on July

Strenerson of the whaler Gottfreid.
The messages are typewritten on film

Butte, Mont., Oct. 22.Apparently,
the "Amalgamated Order of Holdups,"
which has been doing a landoffice busi
ness in Butte and vicinity for several
months, has reduced the age limit and
taken into its ranks a few children.
At any rate, Arthur Hornberg, the
13-year-old son of M. A. P. Hornberg,
a well-known business man, was held
up last night by a pair of youthful
bandits who had a revolver almost as
big as they were.
The young desperadoes conducted
things in a decidedly workmanlike
manner, not even forgetting to tell
young Hornberg to "skidoo" after
they had rifled his pockets.
Hornberg says he was returning to
his home about 8:30 when two boyr
on the other^side of the street called
upon him to dome over to them.
I -did not do itat first," said" young
Hornberg, "and one of them pulled.out
a big, blue-looking gun and pointed it

It has been stated almost authorita
tively that the district attorney knows

subject of rebates is to be burrowed
into, rather than any specific violations
of the law. This is shown from the
fact that each railroad running into the
twin cities will furnish its quota of
witnesses. In some instances they are
from the executive circles and at oth
er times from the clerical ranks.
