THIRD TERM TALK GROWS
The most absorbing topic in tho|
world pf polities nt the present time
is whether President Roosevelt will I
stund fpr the Republican nomination,
or take it If the party demands that i
he run at'.a'n The talk In the politi?
cal centers continues to grow, und
now that Bryan luia made his stand
In HlO imitier relative to the Demo?
cratic nomination clear, it hau become'
almost the one sole topic of conver?
sation, In Washington an men return
I'm the opening or Congress, It has
become so pronounced of lato that It
seems as if the President will bp
compelled to make another declara?
tion or accept unothor nomination. If
the men who nro continually going
to the White House are allowed to
tell htm Hint he Is tho choice or their
stales and districts without robuko,
It Cannot but result In the belief that
the President means to accept n re
hpnilhatlpn If it is thrust upon him.
These Roosevelt boomers tiny that the
President has "nothing to do with the
matte. ; the people have the right lo
name their own presidential nomi?
nee." Tho President Is being told
every day that he will he nominated;
that lie is the choice of this or that
section of tho country, and Hint It Is
the Intention of the Republicans to
iiomlnnto him, und from reliable
sources it is learned that he does lint
stop t'uis talk in private, and it is
known for a certainty that he has
taken no Btops to prevent It from be?
coming pub'.ic property.
There war it time that lite people
at large believed that President
Roosevelt would never again ruh for
President, but it Is evident that tho
politicians did not take him as seri?
ously us did tho people. The Prosl
dent's officeholders are naturally In
t.iiient In their demands that a re
nomination ho preferred and accepted
and it would seem ns if it was time
for the President to emulate the ex
tunplo of Mr. Bryun. Probably the
reason for his not doing so Is found
In the political situation In Now York
State. A stntenient from Rooseveltj
tit the present time, announcing that
ho would under no circumstances ac
opt a rohomlnntlpn would ereatd n
ehnot'.c condition politically In the
Empire State. Conditions would arise
that would make it very doubtful U
the President, would bo able to con?
trol the delegation from that State,
liugheii stock would go soaring, and
It is likely that many other states
in the East would fall In line. Extra
efforts would bo made by the adher
Cits of Cannon. Knox and Fairbanks,
but With the Roosevelt shadow hang?
ing over the situation, every Republi?
can politician thinks It a waste of
time to get out ami hustle for another
mail. And so it Is.
HOW SOME OF THE HIGH FINAN?
CIERS DO IT.
Among tlie Associated Press dis?
patches In yesterday morning's Daily
Pr<?ss was a dory on the grand Jury
Investigation into the management of
tbo Metropolitan Securities and the
Metropolitan Street Railway compa?
nies, hoth of New Yo: k, and while
re-i much of the testimony was given
lo the public, enough Is known that
a ?i'oat flood of lir'it wo? thrown on
the art of high finance. One of tho
central figures in this caao Is Anthony
>.'. Drady, or as ho Is better known
"Tony" Brady, tvIio is a chining ev
ample Of what some people
can accomplish in this world.
A man does not have to lie
very ohl to remember- very ;lln
lluctly the days when Brady mixed
drinks for him in Albany. N, Y.. sa?
loons, und when be secured Ilia first
star! as a ward politician. Brady is
now one of the captains of finance of
New York. According to the testl '
mony b.ought out in the ease In which,
he Is so inttch Interested, he sold a
worthless stroot railway franchise
lor $2.r,0.ooo, the agreement being to
turn over the securities to the late'
William C. Whitney for that sum.;
Hut when the time came for u trans-!
for Brady received a check for $905,-1
000 signed by the president und secre- 1
tary of the .Metropolitan SecutlUcs]
Company. With tills check came in?
structions to retail; 1260,000 for him?
self1, und draw his personal chocks
for the balance to bo equally divided
among other parties to the deal. In
other words, men holding positions
of the highest trust In the Metropoli?
tan Securities Companies paid out of
the treasury of that concern ?'Jt;5,000
for property that was worth only
$250,000, or claimed to be worth that
sum. and put the balance In their
Brady and others In the deal
have made several interesting but un?
successful efforts to explain away the
ugly features of the thieving transac?
tion. One of these so called expla?
nations casts reflections on the lute
William ('. Whitney, a mnn whose
probity was never questioned dnr
Ing his lifetime, and unless the con?
spirators can bring forth stronger ov
Idonco than they have thus far, it
will bo for them to prove that they
arc not only unscrupulous In iholr II
nnnclal dealings, but In an endeavor
to cover their own short coinings they
have proved themselves to !.?> coward'-,
in their efforts to drag down the re
putation of n dead man. '
The iuvestigatiou of this whole
shameful affair has only bogun, but it
Is ovldont that from the statement of
Brady thnt grand larceny has been
committed by iho nun who were par?
ties to it. It Is Impossible to conceal
the main and overshadowing fact thai
nearly a million dollars belonging to
the irtocltholdera of the McCopolltan
Securities Company were taken away
from them without their knowledge
or couuent?to use plain language,
stolen from them by the officials of
the corporation In which tuoy had In?
vested their money. This Is a "am?
ple of the n' t of high finance us- prac?
ticed by sointi of the business men
of New York and who adorn society,
the portals of which are supposed to
be open only to gentlemen. Would
it not seem us If their proper place
was in the penitentiary?
Thoro is one uuwillatuig incident
connected with the Panama bond and
certificate Issue, and that Is that a
great nation with more than |230,
000.000 of Its own on deposit In na?
tional banks. In addition to (he gold
and silver and notes actually In US
physical possession, hns to go out
to borrow $100.000.000 that it does
not need and has no use' for and pay?
ing three per cent, interest for the
privilege. Under n currency system
anything but archaic, such a thing
would l>o Impossible.
