ALL CONCEDE WILSON
Ckiiei it AtefiistratlM, Afltr All,
The Washington Herald yesterday In
terviewed Ave representative business
men on the probable effects of tha ap
proaching national election on business.
Their opinions, which may- be con
sidered as fairly reflective of tha senti
ments of the business men of ths -District
of Columbia, are that no matter
which party wins, that the election' will
have no material effect upon Business.
and that the prosperous conditions or,
the country will be maintained.
"Bumper" crops, the "discounting of
the election by the business interests
through preparedness for expected or
possible changes In the administrative
personnel of tha government, and a sane
realization on the part of the people
that, to to speak, the country and Its
people and Its government ana its dub
ness are bigger than politics, ara tha
reasons for the confidence which these
citizens of the Capital have in tha sta
bility of tha present healthy state of
All Predict Wilson.
Those of the five men who expressed
opinions as to which candidate would
win said that Woodrow Wilson, tha
Democratic candidate for the Presidency,
would be elected. The election of Will
iam H. Taft was regarded as next prob
able. The election of Theodore Roose
velt was looked upon as least probable.
'No matter who Is elected, the results
cf the election will make no material
change In business," William V. Cox,
rresldenr of the Second National Bank,
The effect of the election has been
discounted. The tendency Is toward pro
gresslveness. and the people recognize
that there must be changes. There will
be no sweeping chsnges of the tariff un
der any of them."
Arthur C. Moses, president of tha
Washington oard of Trade, and well
known as a merchant and capitalist,
spoke of effects possible upon local trade
in the District, as well as upon business
'Mr experience has been mat since the
civil service rules have been effective, a
change of administration does not de
crease or Increase business In the Dis
trict So, If Taft Is re-elected, we shall
have a normal amount of business. So,
IT Wilson or Robtevelt is elected, there
will be no material Increase or decrease

lumbia. 1 found some difference before the
civil service rules became effective, but
not much, even then. If the old admin
istration was discontinued, the people
who were living here took courage and
went Into new ventures.
"We have a sane and wise policy of
governing nationally. A good deal more
depends upon the moral fibre and char
acter of the candidate than on any ques
tion of Democracy or Republicanism.
"In my twenty-seven years experience
in business here, I have found that
the changes make no difference. I be
lieve that this Is getting to be the case
G. Bowie Chlpman. manager of the
Washington offices of Harrlman and
Company of New York, believes that
the election's effects will be felt when
the Democratic candidates, if he is
elected as Mr. Chlpman expects, begins
to make up his cabinet.
"I believe that Wilton will be elected,'
said Mr. Chlpman. "but I do not think
that his election will have any effect
upon business until he begins to make
up his cabinet. Then business will
"How much business will be affected
depends upon the. character of the men
he .selects for the cabinet. I expect
that there will be a revision of the
tariff under Wilson's administration."
W. W. Spaid, of W. B. HIbbs and
"I do not believe that the election will
affect business. The election of Wilson
has already been practically discounted.
People expect it and are shaping affairs
in relation to it- Business Is based utxm
economic conditions. If Wilson Taft. or
Roosevelt Is elected mere win be no
change. Business Is good everywhere.
Politics may affect It momentarily, but
not for any length of time.
"I expect that next year will be one
of the greatest in the history of our
John L. Weaver, a real testate man.
was very brief but earnest In the ex
pression of his belief that- the election
would not greatly affect business.
"The election of any one of the three
candidates will have not special affect
on business." Mr. Weaver' stated.
"Bumper crops insure good business no
matter who is elected."

Charles Rtddell, Sergeant-at-arms of
the House of Representatives, went to
New York yesterday to serve a subpoena
on William Rockefeller to appear before
the House committee Investigating the
money trust. 'The Investigation will be
resumed immediately after the election.
An amusing story was being told around
the Capitol yesterday of an unsuccessful
effort to subpoena Mr. Rockefeller.
It appears that a policeman who Is
on the Capitol roll and resides In Brook
lyn waa going home for a vacation and
suggested that If given a special com
mission as an assistant sergeant-at-arms
of the House he could combine business
and pleasure, and while enjoying a vaca
tion at the same time serve the oil man
with the Congress summons. But aa the
days went by and the Brooklyn man did
not return the papers served. Inquiries
were sent to him.
The replies came back that Mr. Rock
efeller waa III and he could not see him.
Finally the Sergeant-at-arms, under di
rection of the committee, decided that
the case required his personal attention.
