on his statement issuea yesterday that
he would accept (he presidential nom

With Mr. Roosevelt squarely on rec

begun here today.
Telegrams from many parts of the

himself into the fray, but he let it be
known that for the present he Intends
to do little, preferring to await Indica

He said that his visitors today were
forming a Roosevelt -organization in
Massachusetts, but that he would take
no part in it. While he will keep in
touch with the political situation in all
parts of the country, Mr. Roosevelt ex
pressed the determination to identify
himself with no Roosevelt organization.
Requests for Many Speeohes.
Requests for speeches have been re

Roosevelt said he had not made up his
mind what to do. " He said, however.

Some of the press of Texis on Fri

the Republicans of Texas," f'om what
is known as the "Progrsssive Repub

Before noticing this a-ldress in de

of progress and progressiva. What is

Consistency, we are told, is a jewel.
Apparently the Progressive Republic

of their address says:
"It is also needless for us to suggest
that the record of the soealled Repub

the present date, is a record of. re

"From 188 to 1900 the party was un

that John Grant was a member of the

that E. H. R. Green was stato chair

that the present head of the Repub

ily calling the Republican conven
tion 609 miles fro.n tht euter of j.op

cording to its language that the con
vention was held 600 miles from EI
Paso, but is probably as near as the
assembled intelligence of the Progres
siva Republican league could come to.
sayinsr that the convention was held
in El Paso, which was 800 miles from
the center of population. This is a
point blank misstatement of facts, to
