A carefully Inspired fear that former

The manner In w hch tho fear found

that certain very clot-o friends of Presi

Some of the Republicans Interviewed
on tho subject oven went to the extent
of declaring that they thought President
Taft himself shared tho belief In Roose
velt's contemplated post convention de
sertion of the party machine.
It develops today that this "fear" is
nothing more or less than a political
uubterfugo on tho part of those who
oppose Roosevelt. It Is hoped to crcato
tho impression that ho was not sincere
when ho said, on announcing his can
didacy, that he would stand by the man
nominated at tho Chicago convention.

Tho reason for nil tills was that Mr.

If You Pay
there is no reason why you should not be putting
tills amount into ;i home of your own right now
one of the Spring Road Properties.
The price is $5,200, but the necessity of paying
that amount in cash is avoided by the SHANNON
& LUCHS easy payment plan. If this plan were an
experiment its practicability would certainly prove
worth the trying. But it is not an experiment. We
have been selling homes on this basis for years.
The fact that the homes of those to whom we
have sold in the past are today occupied by their
owners, and NOT FOR SALE, speaks volumes.
Instead of being a tax on a man's resources, buying
a Spring Road Property the SHANNON & LUCHS
way proves a lighter task than paying rent. Here is
just one example:
The man today who rents a home and has any
regard whatever for his future obligations to his fam
ily must have a sayings account. The money that
now goes into this savings account can be spent for
the immediate necessities and luxuries of life, if he is
buying a Spring Road Property, because this acts as
his savings accouut for the future as well as his home
for the present and all time to come.

tho Fifth precinct, referred today to
charges mado by Louis Rosenberg, n
shoo dealer, at 727 Eighth street south
east, beforo the Southeast Citizens' As
sociation last night, that lie had been
persecuted by tho two ofllcers.
IloBonberg charged tlie oIIIcith with
threatening to "get him" because ho
had been acquitted In tho Police Court,
following his arrest on u chaigo of
violating llio building regulations Jle
also asserted that Instead of the usual
proceduro In notifying a business man
to appear In court on his personal
recognizance In cases of this kind, he
had been taken to the station house and
required to deposit $23 collateral.
Lemuel Fugltt was Instructed by the
association to bring the case to the
attention of Major Sylvester and nsk
that an investigation he made.
The police say that ltosenberg was
brought in court because It was believed
ho had not obtained the ptoper permit
to construct a showcase In front of
his store, but the case was dismissed.
Captain Mulhall says he linn never
spoken a word to Rosenberg since the
cii8o was disposed of, and tlie charge lie
