Few Men Have Risen From Second
to First Place.
The nomination of .Senator
Fairbanks as the vice-presidential
candidate on the ticket with Roose
velt brings into ligh1t nce ag::in tie

some intcresting stattstics: conccrn
ing it. says the At!allta V-.urIn!.
Of the 25 persons who have
been elected vice-presidert of the
United States. about one-third of
them. or eight. have attained the
presi<iential office. either by sub1se
quent election or by the leaflt of
the president. and tve .f them' ied
in office. Those who were electcfd
vice president and were after
ward elected to the presidency are
John Adams. who wa- vice-president
for two full terms and wa5 then elect

was vice pre-idcnt dinrig the :erm

Those who have gon in.t the e(
ecutive through the death of the pres
ident are john Tyler. who became
president upon the deathl of Villiam
Henry Harrison about one month
after the latter was inaugurated. and
so served nearly a full term: Milliard
Fillmore. who succeeded Zachary
Taylor one year and four months after
the inauguration of Taylor: Andrew
Johnson, who served all of Lincoln's
second term but a month: Chester A.
Arthur. who succeeded James A. Gar
field and served three and one-half
years. and Theodore Roosevelt, who
succeeded William McKinley six
months after his second inauguration.
The office of vice-president, inde
pendent of the possibility of succes
sion to the presidency. has never in
the years past been considered an un
desirable position. Except for those
who have extravagant ideas, the
salary of $8.ooo a year is a most lib
eral one for a place which is regarded
as almost a sinecure.
It is the constitutional duty of the
'vice-president to preside over the
senate, and that is his only duty. As
he can take no part in the debates and
has no vote except in case of a tie.
his presence in the senate has never
been deemed necessary. except when
that body is about equally divided
politically. and thzt does not. often
happen. It is the custom for the sen
ate to elect a president pro tem. and
he is more often on duty. The office
of vice-president is one of great dig
nity. but of little political power or
consequence except so far as the pos
sibility of the succession may confer
