MR. ROOSEVELT'S AMBITIO.
He Wants to be Senator When He
Ceases to be President.
Washimton. April 16.-Mr. Roose
velt made known to some of those
with whom he talked recently his am
bition is to represent the state of
New York in the United States sen
ate after he leaves the White House
in 1909. There is not the slightest
doubt-in the minds of the president's
closest friends that he intends to ad
here strictly to his announcement on
election night in November, 1904, that
in no circumstances would he serve
another term in his present office. It
is assumed from what Mr. Roosevelt
has said that he much prefers remain
ing in public life to becoming presi
dent of Harvard university.
Both the present senators from
New York are more than 70 years old,
and it is generally understood that
neither will stand for re-election. Mr.
Platt will cease to be senator on the
same day that Mr. Roosevelt will
cease to be president, March 4, 1909;
while Mr. Depew 's term will expire on
March 4, 1911. If he were elected to
succeed Mr. Platt Mr. Roosevelt
would be sworn in as senator, if he
so desired, on the day of his retire
ment from the presidency.
Upon his accession to the presi
dency, in 1901, Mr. Roosevelt was the
youngest man who had ever occupied
that office. If he lives until the ex
piration of his present, term he will
be only 50 years old. He will then be
nearly 35 years younger than the
Nestor of the senate, Mr. Pettus, of
John Quincy Adams served eight
terms in the house of representatives i
after he had ceased to be president in
MUST HAVE CONTRACT.
Mr. Childs on Mail Trains in The
Afternoon-Matter is in
The donnection between President
Childs, of the C., N. and L. road and
the postoffice department in the mat-i
ter of mail service on the afternoon
train out of Columbia to Laurens has
not been short-circuited as might be
imagined from the delay in getting
the service started. Fact is the con
netion has not yet been established,
although as far back as the first of
March Postmaster Ensor made a con
tract for a man to carry this mail be
tween the postoffice and the old union
station on Gervais street, from which
point this train starts out.
When he learned that the service
had been authorized Dr. Ensor took
the matter of a contract up with the
second assistant postmaster with t.he
above result, and he suggested. that
Mr. Childs could get satisfactory re
sults in the same way.
"I can't understand why the ser
vice is not started,'' said Dr. Ensor.
"It was authorized tivo months ago,
according to the newspapers, and ac
cording to information that comes to
me from other sources. People are
running to me about the matter every
day. Columbia business men want to
know when the service is going to
"It's all very well,'' said Mr.
Childs to a Record man today, "to
talk about the business interests of
Columbia needing such service, but
the C., N. and L. road does not be
long to the city of Columbia and can-'
not be run in its interest without com
pensation. I have absolutely no con
tract with the gover,nment to carry that
mail, and I am not going to start car
rying it until I do have a favorable
contract. The only communication I
have had on the subject was from
Superintendent Terrell, of the rail
way mail service, who wrote from
Atlanta about two months ago to ask
whether I could put a mail car on that
train. I answered that I could. This
has been the extent of the correspond
ene I have had on the subject.
"No, I am not going to write to the
second assistant postmaster general
nor to anyone else. My experience
has been that it is best to let govern
ment officials come to you when they
A committee from the chamber of
commerce was to meet and confer
with Superintendent Williams today
about the proposed change on the C
and G. line, but he is in Washington,
and the. conference had be to tempora
Washington, April 16.-Representa
tive Lever called on Superintendent
White, of the railway mail service,
today to ascertain the cause of the
delay in putting on the mail service
on the C., N. and L. road on the train
leaving Laurens for Columbia. The
records of the department show that
the service was ordered on March 1st,
and that the A. C. L. was callaed upon
by the department to furnish a mail
car for the purpose. It is found that
the- cuem-o the delay is due to the
fact that the railway company a
vet has not found it convenient to
supply this car. But as soon as it
can be done the service will go into
Operation. The department promises
to again call on the railroad company
to furnish this car. This is all that
can be done at this end of the line.
Mr. Lever is very much annoyed at
what seems to be unreasonable delay
in getting a service on which would be
of so much benefit to so many people.
He also took up with Superintend
ent White again the matter of having
service put on the evening train out
of Columbia for Augusta. This is the
matter which Mr. Lever and Senator
Tillman took up with the department
that district in charge, and that the
matter had been referred to Super
intendent Terrell, of Atlanta, who has
that district in charge, and that the
matter would be taken up for final
consideration when the report from
Mr. Ter-, :cached the department.
Mr. Lever quite anxious to have a
mail clerk put on this train. There
would be no trouble in getting a lock
pouch put on this train for each of
the towns along the road which would
request it. This plan does not ap
pear very strongly to Mr. Lever, and
he feels the interest of the service de
mands a clerk, and he is going to make
his fight for this.
