- NEW YORK, Oct. 3. Holding the
long dlstanco record for continuous
-campaigning. Col. Theodore Roose
velt Is snatching a few hours' rest
at Sagamore Hill today. The Pro
gressive Presidential candldato need
ed It, for he had traveled somo 11,000
miles and had delivered several hun.
dred speeches In thirty days, when
he reached Oyster Bay last night.
Mr. Roosevelt leaves for Washing
ton tonight atad will tostlfy Friday
before tho Senate committee Inves
tigating campaign contributions. He
will forsake the seclusion of Saga-
moro Hill late this afternoon, when
he comes to New York to participate
in a conference with Qeorgo W.
Perkins, Frank A. Munsey, Senator
Dixon, and other Progressives re
garding the third party outlook and
the colonel's forthcoming tour of
the Middle West. Immediately after
this conference Mr. Roosevelt will
take the train for the National

Tlie tentative pinna are that the col

ter Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana and
Ohio, turning eastward again about ten
days hence. Colonel Roosevelt sought
rest only when he reached New York
ICBterduy afternoon. Just before reach
ing thnt city ho bade good-by to the
newspaper correspondents who liavo
accompanied him on the 11,000-mile Jour

"It has been a bully trip, an Interest
ing trip," he said. "Now 1 am going to
trv to havo a day of real rest with my
family at Oyster Hay. I wish you
would tell your office that I will have
absolutely nothing to say until I reai.li
New York tomorrow night. I want to
b away from everything for a few
hours at least and would like to have u
Little Rest on Trip.
The colonel smiled as he recalled that
he had had little rest for the past thir
ty days. Mr. Roosevelt acknowledged
that he might take a horseback ride or
play a game of tennis this afternoon,
but the colonel regards this as recrea
tion. What he particularly desired to
sav was that the gates to Sagamore
IIIU would be closed to all and that he
wanted to live like an ordinary mortal
for one day at leaBt.
Mrs. Roosevelt and Miss Ethel Roose
velt met the colonel at the station In
New York late yesterday and he was
whisked Immediately to Oyster Bay In
Mr. Roosevelt spent a part of today
in gathering together the papers and
correspondence he may need when ho
tstlfles before the Senate committee, to
morrow. The colonel wants to be In
position to answed any question put by
the Senate campaign fund Investigators,
and he Is reudv and even anxious to
appear before them, as Indicated by
his letter to Senator Clapp a month ago.

WEST VIRGINIA IS
Roosevelt Voters Not Dis
couraged by Taft-Subsi-dized
Papers of State.
MOROANTOWN, W. Va Oct. .
West Virginia being the home of one of
the "seven governors" who urged Col
onel Roosevelt to stand for the Repub
lican Presidential nomination previous to
the Chicago convention. It is quite nat
ural to seek for largo numbers of
Roosevelt followers In this State. They
are here. Excepting California, one
can And no Btate where Roosevelt bos
a stronger lead among the people.
Now, It matters but little whether
Governor dlasscock. In Joining with the
other governors who asked Colonel
Roosevelt to become a candidate, did
so because of the strong sentiment of
the Republicans in his Btate for Mr.
Roosevelt, or whether the popularity of
the governor himself, brought large
numbers of adherents to the cause.
The point Is that these Roosevelt
voters have followed him Into the
third party. West Virginia Is a pro
gressive Slate, industrially. The his
tory of the development of West Vir
ginia Is the history of a people who
were quick to realize the value of their
natural resources, and who went for
ward with rapid strides. When this
development began. West Virginia
threw off Democratic allegiance and be
came a Republican State. The native
citizenship la that of a hardy people,
with sturdy, even rugged, characters.
They broke away from the Old Dom
inion and organized a new Btate dur
ing the war period, and this zeal for a
cause they believe to be right, holds
Backed Sooievelt in 1908.
Loyal to their political faith In 1908,
West Virginia stood by William H. Taft,
but largely because he had been rec
ommended to them by the retiring Pres
ident. In fact, owing to factional dif
ferences within the Republican party
that year, the State would have gone
to the Democrats, but for the admira
tion the voters had for former Presi
dent Roosevelt, and their desle to sup
port the President of his choosing.
West Virginia has attracted but little
attention this year, politically, since
Governor Glasscock took his stand In
favor of Colonel Roosevelt Having
but eight electoral votes a, gain of one
since 1M8, and having always returned
large Republican majorities, thesltua
tlon has not been exploited beyond the
borders of the State.
The real news of the West Virginia
situation has. In a measure, been sup
pressed. There are but three or four
newspapers In the State supporting the
Progressive movement. Again, the state
Republican committee, although expect
ing a large support from the Progres
sives who have no State ticket. Is. un
doubtedly, largely a Taft organization.
So. there has been a lack of DUbllclty
regarding the trend toward the Progres
Democrats Fear Colonel.
It should be sufficient to say that the
Democrats, sanguine for several weeks
of profiting by the Roosevelt sentiment
In the State, are now fighting the third
"party desperately. The Democrats had
reason, early In the campaign, to ex
pect great things In West Virginia.
There has been aa drift way from the
Republican State ticket since 13-14. and
only Roosevelt himself. In 1901. and his
Indorsement of Taft In 1908, kept the
State In the Republican column.
Tho Democrats did carry four out of
five Congressional districts In 1910, and
controlled the Legislature, which named
two Senators. So, with a split In the
Republican party this 5 ear, as It was
called early In the campaign. It looked
as If tho Democrats might well antici
pate a completo victory from tho top
to the bottom of their ticket.
West Virginia Is not a State to be
reckoned with as many other States.
.When the leading spirits of the citizen
ship decided to cut on from old Vlrglnlu.
awuy back there In war times, they did
not lose much time In taking definite
action. The people stood together, as
a whole, on the proposition. This spirit

tho present political situation standi
The Republican voters sent a hand
picked Roosevelt delegation to Chicago,
with Instructions what to do. Knowing
their delegates, they sat back at home,
watched the proceedings from afar, and
kept calm. When the crisis came there
was no telegraphing back .home for
further Instructions. The delegates from
West Virginia were fully aware of the
determined sentiment of the men who
sent them there. The people back here
In tho State, knew their chosen repre
sentatives in Chicago would do about
as they wanted them to. 80, when they
followed Colonel iRoosevelt Into an
other convention, there was no ap
plause back In West Virginia, but silent
Not a Biekwoods State.
West Virginia Is no longer a back
woods State. Every farmer in the State
gets a dally paper delivered near his

In tho national convention, and In the
towns and clUes, they knew hourly
each development In the lollseum. By
tho time the dolegates returned home
tho people of this State were of the opln
Ion that tho nomination had been ob
tained by fraud.
1 ThaHePuWIcana themselves, cxcepl
I"? the original Taft men. most of
whom hold office, voiced their approval
of what their delegates had done.
There was no need of any further light
upon the subject There has been no
chango of sentiment since, except that
the Roosevelt movement has grown, by
leaps and bounds, and Is today a sur
prise to any person who takes the pains
to Investigate among the people them
selves. This situation has coma about with
no aid from a State press. In fact, It
has come about In spite of a strong
Taft newspaper Influence. These West
Virginia people do not know how Col
onel Roosevelt has fared on his recent
Western tour. 'What they read In State
and some city newspapers Is colored eo
as to really bring discouragement. It
these people were easily discouraged.
But they have gone on about their dally
pursuits and Instead of waning, the
Roosevelt sentiment In West Virginia
has become stronger.
There are several counties in the State

gressive cause Is printed. The old fa
vorite county newspapers are support

The real surprise In this State Is met
with when one gets out In the hamlets
and towns In the country sections.
There are any number or men who have
been Democrats since before the war
who announce their determination to
vote for Colonel Roosevelt this year.
The young men, too. manv of the first
voters, are strong for the Progressive
movement and have no hesitancy In
declaring their preferences openly.
