Mr. Roosevelt declined to discuss the

"Almost all of the persons signing the

"Is there any significance In the fact
that Governor Stubbs did not sign the

"Not the slightest," repllcd.the colonel.

Roosevelt Leader Calls.
The flra Important caller on the
governor was former Senator Everett
Colby one of the Roosevelt, leaders of
the State. During the conference be
tween Governor AVllson and Mr. Colby
rumors wore rife that tho former Sen
ator bore tidings from tho colonel, but
Mr. Colby soon put a quietus on this
story. He said that the only reason
for his visit was to urge the appoint
ment of Theodore D. Gottlieb ns judgo
of the First district court of Nowark.
There are about a score of applicants
for this place end Mr. Colby told the
governor of Mr. Gottlieb's fitness for
the position. Tho executive did not
say what he would do.
Mr. Colby was asked as to tho prob

on the third party movement. He

Tho American Federation of Labor at
Its last convention pledged its support
