By selecting June 21 and Chicago
as the time and place for holding tbe
next convention tbe republican na
tional committee has taken 'the first
step in the coming presidential cam
paign. The meeting of the committee
at the Arlington Hotel in Washing
ton, under the chairmanship of Sena
tor Hanna, wa harmonious. All
tuestions brought before the body
were settled amieaniy and wiiuom
dissent iou, aud after a cordial recep-
tiou bv President Roosevelt aud a din
ner by Senator Hanna the committee
men departed, well justified in their
belief that republican success at the
election was assured.
Perhaps the most important result
of the committee meeting was the al-
moBt unanimous expression of ap
proval of the present administration
and the general assurance Hhat Presi
dent Roosevelt would be the choice of
the convention for first place on the
party ticket. The members of the
committee are representative party
men, they came from every state in
the union and knowing that their re
marks would be widely published.
they attempted (o describe exactly tbe
sentiment of the districts which they
represented. One member after anether
was interviewed on the probable nom
ination of tbe president, and almost
every man declared that" In his dis
trict Mr. Roosevelt was the first
choice. The sentiment in his favor
was so general aud so positive, that
the further discussion of any other
candidate is now mere waste of time.
Mr. Roosevelt will be nominated by
acclamation, andthe general realiza
tion of this fact will do much to un
ify the republican party.
One small incident marred the gen
eral good feeling of the meeting of
committeemen. A negro member of
the committee was invited with the
others to the dinner given by Senator
Hanna. As the colored man entered
the diniug room a committeeman
from North Carolina rose and left the
room, declarine that he had come to
tbe meeting a gentleman and intend
ed to leave it as one. His action was
ignored as were the statements of the
few committeemen who refused to

Tbe democrats iu eouil --. I 'iat is
some ot tbe leaders, would like to
make some political capital out of the
Pauama affair and canal treaty but it
seems as if they will be unable to dc
so. The Louisiana legislature, demo
cratic of course, has passed a resolu
tion instructing the senators from that
state to support the treaty.
Clark Howell, national committee
man from Georiga aud a leading figure
iu the democratic forces of the south
has come out flatfooted in favor of
tbe ratification of the treaty and the
republican policy with regard to Pan
ama. Mr. Howell says:
"The status of the Panama case be
fore the senate of tbe nation is ap
proacbine a critical condition. Sena
tors are bound by their oatbs. aud m
the absence of those guides to their
actions which are excepted in the cau
cus pledge, each of tbem will act, we
presume, upon bis conscientious con
victions of what is due to his country
and his constituents.
"What was the United States to do
in such a case, with its obligations as
to the Panama transit and neutrality
upou it? Our marines were landed to
do our duty in that one respect only.
Colon, the canal strip, and Pauama
belonged iu our jurisdiction for tbe
purposes of peace aud order. And to
exercise that right to preserve them
was the oulv ottice performed by our
forces on aud near the isthmus.
Southern senators cannot escape
the certain conviction that a vote
from any one of them adverse to the
treaty will be a vote against the
urgent interest ; and demauds of the
progressive producing and business
interests of these southern states. ''
