BARNES BLAMES GR1SC0M
Republican Leader of Albany Says
New York County Chairman Threw
a Firebrand Into Committee Meet
ing When He Proposed Roosevelt's
Name for Chairman After Sherman
Had Been Nominated.
SHERMAN MAY BE DEPOSED
New York, Aug 25.William
Barnes, Jr., Republican leader of Al
bany and one of the old guard who
selected Vice President Sherman for
temporary chairman of the state con
vention over the head of Theodore
Roosevelt, has given out a statement,
in part as follows:
"All citizens will rejoice at the
statement of Mr. Roosevelt that he
will go to the Saratoga convention, if
Nassau county will send him, and that
there will be no compromise on his
part, because the people are entitled
to know where the Republican party
stands on all public matters.
"Differences between the members of
a political party should be fought out
at political conventions. Then, when
the majority opinion has been record
ed, it is the duty of all to support the
ticket and the platform.
"When Mr. Grisconv interjected Mr.
Roosevelt's name as a candidate for
the temporary chairmanship, without
the members of the state committee
knowing where Mr. Roosevelt stood
on the issues now before the people
in this state and after the vice presi
dent had been placed in nomination
before that committee, thereby forc
ing the issue which it was not the in
tention of the committee to create, he
simply threw a firebrand in the Re
publican situation entirely unwarrant
ed and for what purpose it is not for
me to say. So unwise was his action
that President Taft has been called
upon to disclaim the absurd charge
that he was responsible for the selec
tion of Mr. Sherman. Of course he
was not responsible, nor was he con
"It is, therefore, highly sensible on
the part of Mr. Roosevelt, if he hopes
to control the policies of the Republic
an party in this state, that he should
go to the state convention as a dele
gate and there thrash out what he
thinks ought to be the policy of the
party with those who have different
opinions from him. It is assumed, of
course, that he will abide by the deci
sion of that convention, as will those
who will oppose him thereif he is
