H Eberhart, Minnesota Carroll,; Iowa;
1 Haj, Washington; Goldsborough,
M IIar land; Tener. Pennsylvania; Hoop-
B cr, Tennessee. Spry, Utah; Pennewlll,
B Dclaware Potheir, Rhode Island.
B In addition to the signed stato-
H managers claimed tho support of De-
B neen, Illinois, Oddie, Nevada, and.
H Meade, Vermont.
H Tho announcement from tho Taft
H hureau is taken as an answer to the
H announcement of seven governors,
H upon whose invitation Colonel Theo-
H doro Roosevelt based his formal entry
H-to the presidential contest
Twenty-two states have Republican
B governors and all are accounted for in
B the various statements of preslden-
H tial preferences, as follows:
B Declared for Taft, 9; claimed by
B Taft managers, 3. Declared for Roose-
H -velt, 7, declared for LaFollette, 1;
H preference not announced, 2.
H The governors who have declared
B for Roosevelt are Glasscock, West
H Virginia. Aldrich, Nebraska; Bass.
B Xev Hampshire, Obbom, Michigan;
B Stubbs, Kansas, Hadley Missouri;
H Jolmson, California.
H Governor Carey of Wyoming also
B signed the "governors' letter," urg-
H ing Colonel Roosevelt to becomo a
H candidate, but It is now asserted that
H lie has renorved judgment Neither
Bj lias Governor Vcssoy of South Da-
B Icota announced, his choice. The Cal-
B ifornla executive did not sign the let
H tor, but has since declared for the for-
H mcr president. Governor McGovern
H of Wisconsin is committed to Sen-
B atcr LaFoIlottc
H Tho nine govornors who have come
H out for President Taft take the posl-
H tion that his record entitles him to
Hj rcnornination and election:
H Following arc extracts from the
H governors' dispatches.
H Ebcrhdrl, Minnesota "President
H Tr.ft's administration, measured by
H all standards of accomplishment and
H fidelity to duty, entitles him to tho
H endorsement of a second term, whicn
H I believe the inherent sense of fair-
H ncss and justice of tho American peo-
H pic will ungrudgingly give him."
H Carroll, Iowa "There is no justice
H in the opposition to President Taft.
H Ills administration has been clean
H and capable, and in harmony with
H platform pledges. A just and rlght-
H cous application of the square deal
H; would accord him renomiuatlon with-
H out a contest."
B Ha, Washington Few ndminlstra-
H tions can point to tho enactment of
H so many wise and progressive laws as
H that of President Taft. " I feel
H It the duty of every progressive Re-
H publican to support Mrv. Taft for re-
H nomination and re-election."
H Goldsborough, Maryland "I is niv
H opinion that President TaXt has given
H tho country one of the best admiuls
H ' trations In its history. I firmly be-
H Jievo that when the- lecord of the Re-
H publican party under his wise leadcr-
H ship is fully made known to the pco-
H plo they wi'lj rally to his standard, rc-
H nominate and re-elect him."
H Toner Pennsylvania "In view of
H of tho manner in which President Taft
Hj has conducted his office tho progrcs- .
filvo and substantial achievements of
1 his administration, I unhcsi(.at-
H ingly predict his re election."
B Hooper, Tennessej "President Taft
Hj is personally popular in Tennessee
B and his administration commends gen-
H cral public conQdence. Tho state
organization Is loyally supporting the
HHP pre-sideut from present indications,
" lie will get tho vote of Tennessee in
H tho national convention."
B Spry, Utah "I am glad to relter-
B ate my personal preference for Mr,

I wcll.as; the strongest man whose namo

After Colonel Roosovelt had ro

up of New England's S8 delosntes to

Cambridge to talk literature with the
learned men of Harvard,
It do eloped today that tb(S Rpo8e

loader to tnko active charge. Those
who have consulted with Colonel
Roosevelt say' that he has stated to
day It was his intention o spend as'
much of his lime as posoiblo at Oys

editorial office In Now York

Colonel RoobovoU was asked as to
tho truth of a roport that Senator
Dixon of Montana would bo the man
at the helm Ho replied the senator
would bo acceptable to hlni and that
It should bo expected ho would take
charge. On account of Illness In his
family, It had become necessary, Mr.
Roosovelt said, for tho senator to
abandon this plan for au Indefinite
period
Sovoral other names wcro suggest
ed to the colonel, but ho said no de
cision had boon reached. Reports
published that ho had made an at
tack upon President Taft brought a
heated denial from Colonel Roosevelt
who said they wore Unequivocally
false. He also Issued a statment In
which ho defined the platform upon
which he will make hla fight In which
he pointed to his recent speeches as
to tho best expression of his opin
ions. Mad at Rcportero.
Colonel Roo&evclt's visit to Harvard
today was not entirely peaceful. Since
his arrival in Boston last Saturday
he has been followed by taxlcabs
filled with reportors and photogra-
phers, whenever his pursuors were

The pursuit lecj today to two clubs
a HjujVardj Once tho colonel walked
up to m V(iTB"Iri& automohilo, opened
tho door and said that ho did not
wish to be followed, as his visit to
Harvard was of purely social nature.
But tho colonel bocame angry. As he
alighted from tho motorcar at the
Hasty Pudding iclub, the camera men
had 'driven up uud aimed their ma
ohlnes at him. Tho colonel waived
his arms ln protost, but it waB .useless.-
Again he went to the automo
bile and demanded -that the pursuit

firm refusal Tho colqnel turned
sharply about and fled Into the club
house. Returne to Now York Today.
"Yes," he confessed later, "I was
angry. It isn't right My picture has
been" taken several thousand times
since I came to Boston and I haven't
even changed ry hat"
Colonel Roosovelt took luncheon
with his son Kermlt nnd some of hla

BARMES CRITICISES i
ROOSEfell SPEECH
WASHINGTON. Feb. 27. William
Barnes, Jr., chainnun of tho New
York Republican stato committee,
gavo out a statement tonight Just be
fore going to tho Whlto IIouso to
dine with President Taft
"I want it made clear that I gave
out this statement before I wont to
the White Houso," Mr Barnes said
Tho burden of the statement con
cerns Colonel Roosevelt's recent
speech at Columbus. It follows:
"I can only say thlst It has seem
ed to mo that homogeneity of opin
ion within tho Republican party has
been threatened for a long time, and
that a definition of fundamental prin
ciples was therefore absolutoly neces
Bary In order that tho party might ou
duro as tho proscrvatlvo food In tho
linton's life
"Tho speech of Mr. Roosevelt at
Colilmbus Is a violation of principle
of Ropubllcans. When cusually read
it would scorn to contain a formula
tion. of doctrlno, but coupled aB It Im
mediately was With a declaration of
tho author's candidacy for tho nomi
nation to tho presidency. It acquired
virility, but lost that dispasslonato
devotion to principle which would
have given It whatever quality it
might hnvc possessed.
"in other word3, this exposition at
Columbus was to proface a candidacy
Tathor than to maintain principles,
and a candidacy which had boon by
Its progenitor distinctly repudiated.
"This seems so clear to me that
although it is Impossible for me to
subscribe to tho doctrine of the Co
lumbus speech, I would feel that if I
wero oue who could subscribe to that
doctrlno, ray feet wore on slippery
ground
"Regarding the situation in the
state of Nou York, delegates from
each congiesslonal district will bo
olectcd at a primary election on
March 20th on direct vote of the near
ly one-half million enrolled Republi
cans In the whole state, to the na
tional convention, to be held at Chi
cago, and at the state convention to
bo held at Rochester on April 9, four
delegates will bo chosen bj the ma
jority of the delegates olected at the
3tnto election to tho same comentlon
"Thrco Is no doubt whatsoever that
tho best Judgment of the Republican
electors of New York will ho express
ed at that primary and that that con
vention, which will assemble at Ro
chester as a result of that primary,
will reaffirm those pnnciples of the
Republican party which have made it
In the past the medium through which
the thoughtful and patriotic people of
the country have rested In security
that their government will be repre
sentative, far-sighted and tonaclous of
tho rlght6 of every Individual, whether
his opinions coincide with the major
ity or whethor they do not.
"The Republicans of tho Btate cf j
Now York can no, more be sweuved
from their obyloun diitv now thnn thoy
were In 1SD.G, when,, that state With
others united ,to-,h61d tho. jiarty Jinn
In res.stanco to tho crazczd ideas of
the hour."
WASHINGTON. Feb. 27. Unan
nounced In Republican political cir
cles, his arrival apparently unexpect
ed excopt at tho White House whero
ho dined with President Taft and Sec
rotary HilleB. William Barnes, of Al
bany, chairman of tho New York
slate Republican committee, came to
Washington tonight
His appearance gavo rise to all
sorts of rumors but tho ono which
was glveu greatest credence was that
ho would take direct management of
President Taft's candidacy in Now
York state.
Before going to the White House,
Mr Barnes gave out a statement as
sailing tho Teceut speech made at
Columbus, Ohio, by Theodore Rooso
velt. He made a point of the fact
that his statement was issued in ad
vance of any talk with the president
Ho characterized the Roosevelt
speech as "a prefaco to a candidacy,"
and a violation of Republicanism."
Whllo Mr. Barnes did not name
Prosldont Taft or mention hiB candi
dacy in any way, his meaning could
not bo misconstrued when ho pointed
out that each Now York district Tould
olect Republican delegates bj tho pri
mary system on March 26 and dele
gates at large at the stato convention
on April 9 and prcdioted "that tho
hest Judgment of nearly one half mil
lion of enrolled Republicans would
be expressed."
It was oxpectod that the conforenco
between tho prosldont Mr BarncB
and Secretary Hllles would bo short,
as the president had an engagement
to address the local University club
at Its annual banquet His engage
ment was for 9 30 p. m but ho did
not reach the banquet room until
nearly 11 o'clock. Mr. Taft remained
for an hour and then hurried back
to the White Houso and rejoined Mr.
Barnes
Mr. Barnos left the White House
at 12 30 o'clock At his hotel he de
clined to amplify his early statement
When asked to say whether he was
going to come out for an Instructed
delegation for Taft In Now York he
replied that his statement said
enough. Ho may hao some political
conferences here tomorrow.
Among those who learned of Mr
Barnes' vlowg and who claimed to
bo familiar with his probable pur
pose, It was stated that he undoubt
edly urged the president to Insist up
on a strong platform Insofar as It
le-afflrmcd Republican principles of
the past and to hold out against re
cent doctrines as expressed by the
more radical progressives.
