PREDICT FUTURE OF
Disruption of Republicans
Prophesied If Taft Runs

"Orand Old Party."

to do this f orecastlng and who can back
up his forecasts with reasonably strong
evidence that h'e knows whereof he

lot of fees dally from anxious people
who would like to consult htm. lie
would be occupied night and day from
now to election and perhaps afterward.
The future of the Republican party Is
being dlscuwed among political leaders
more and more as the end of the cam
paign approaches. This Is a phase of
the political situation that Is really
"'V.'.". ,hB Politicians and students of
politics more concern and more worry
than the fata of one candidate or the
Deiertiom Feared. ,
Scarcely any two people agree on
what Is going to be the future of the
Republican party. It Is pretty generally
admitted that If It should come out
third In the voting In November It
would be sadly shaken and It would be
extremely difficult to keep It together.
A comparatively small proportion of de.
voted members of the party would stick
to It and go down with tho ship. But
, the tendency will be for men to desert If
t should come out of the election In
third place .
The Bull Moose movement. It It
proves stronger than the Republican
party In the voting In November, la
bound to be given a powerful Impetus.
It will be extremely difficult to keep
such progressive men as have thus far
remained In tho Tinnuhiimn n.riv awn.
.from it. Moreover, It will appeal pow.
erfully to many Democrats.
, .. c?""ot be questioned that If the
Bull Moose vote Is greater than the
Republican vote, the leaders xt the
Progressive party will go about tho
uuwucsa oi organizing ror 1816, organ
ising for the ConsTes'.lonal camnalim
of 19H, and organizing for control of
in jeEiaiaiures or mates and for the
nactmeht of Progressive legislation

This Is realized by many reactionaries,
and Is a potent reason why reaction
ary Influences nre working hard to
throw the Bull Moose to the place of
third In the race
Place Holders Worried.
The defeat of the Republican party,
it has to be remembered, will throw
out of office thousands of Republicans
of long atandlng, many of whom havo
been devoted to the party for the sako
of Jobs. One out of these Jobs their
enthusiasm will wane.
This Is a strong reason why the Re
publican party will find Itself gravely
weakened by defeat and weakened to
a degree that Is not exactly registered
by the results of the balloting. In
other words, the Republican party. If
defeated, will find that It has a lot of
members who stand ready to take to
the Ufeboats when they think the ship
In danger of sinking.
It will be a hard thing to reorganise
the Republican party and put It on an
HfTectlvo fighting basts for 1914 or 1916
If It suffers a bad drubbing at the polls.
Unlike the Democratic party. It has not
been through long years of the school
ing of defeat.
Democrats as Conservative!.
A lot of Intelligent political oplnlon
here, opinion of the Impartial sort, try
ing to read the political future Impar
tially, believes Jt likely that. If the Re
publicans fall to third place this year
the party will ko out of existence, that
the Bull .Moose party will replace the
Republican party, taking over every
thing that la In any way Progressive
and leaving the conservative elements
to find their way Into the Democratic
party, while many progressive Demo
crats quit their party and the Demo
cratic become In all respects tho con
servative party of the nation.
Others look for the present situation,
with three parties In the country, not
Including the Socialists, to continue at
least through another campaign. Still
others think that by 1916 the country
will have four parties, not Including
the Socialists the old Republican party,
tho Bull Moose party, and a radical and
conservative wing of the Democratic
party, which many believe la sure to
split In the next four years If the
Democrats should elect a President to
succeed President Taft. Such an out
come would mean that beforo long con
ditions In Congress would be more
badlv mixed than now and that some
thing like the block system found In
various European parliaments would

One v"oman Airested, and a Scond Accused, of Stealing
Money From Business Men Band Chased
WASHINGTON TIME BUREAU,
ANACOSTIA. D. C. OCT. I.
A band of gypsies, sent out to forage
for the main body, created turmoil In
Anacostla and neighboring towns yes
terday evening. At the close of the day
the record of the Eleventh police pre
cinct showed two cases of larceny, by
trick charged to the women fortune
tellers, shopkeepers were guarding their
money tills, and the police, had chased
the Invaders from the suburbs.
The gypsies entered Twining City
first, and the women with them scat
tered throughout the town to tell for
tunes. One of them entered the bar
room of Herman Fischer, In Pennsyl
vania avenue. William BIttner, the
bartender, waa there, as were a number
of others. The gaudily dreased visitor
Insisted on telling Mr- Bltlner's fortune.
In the course of her Incantations she
declared she could proceed better If
showi 'some bills. Some one handed
several bills to her. She said she, would
show them how to "blow the roll." and
after some more me sterlous passes she
handed back the money. After aha had
goneMr. BIttner 'his suspicions aroused
by Proprietor Fischer, discovered ho
had lost St. ,
Mr. BIttner pursued the gypsies to
Anacostla, where he found Policeman
C. R, Brown. The woman he pointed
out denied the charge. A gypsy who
said he was the chief of the band drove
up and said the woman was not guilty,
but he Would pay the money In order to
prevent trouble. This he did on the
spot. Mr. BIttner deciding not to Dross-
wwiam E. Howard, a Congress
Heights blacksmith, was the next vic
tim, one or the women, going Inslda
the shop, offered to tell Mr. Howard's
fortune. She found It necessary to re
move a handkerchief from thn smith's
pocket several times. Finally she left
and Mr. Howard discovered that W had
been taken, from his Docket. Policeman
T. A. Lusby arrested the woman In a
Susie Made waa the name tao save.

The woman .denied the theft. She was

wmen came tne installation or modern
plumbing systems In the suburban
uomes, orougni aooui uio expenditure.
It Is estimated that by this time fully
1,400 people have the advantages of
modern plumbing there. Added to the
