THEY FEEL BLUE
Republicans Are Afraid That Taft
Will Be Defeated.
THEY ARE WORRIED.
Even President Roosevelt Thinks His
Mun'* Election is Doubtful-Re
cord of Congress Far From Satis
fait orj to thc Majority Party, and
Republicans Are Anxious.
A Washington Letter to the
i Charleston Post says the Republicans
in Congress aro In a bad humor.
Things legislative and political have
not broken well for them during tho
last winter. They are disappointed
and anxious, and the leaders avo
trying to foist the responsibility for
existing conditions from one to an
other. Many blame President Roose
velt. The President, on the other
hand, blames the Congress.
No doubt exists that the Republi
cans are concerned over the Presi
dential and Congressional elections
that aro to tako place next autumn.
They aro not scared, but the fact
that the legislative program whick
was recommended by the President
has not. been carried out leads to
the bOlief Hutt something may happen
during th? approaching campaign.
An apprehension is felt that Secre
tary Taft, if nominated for the Presi
dency, may bo defeated. The reali
zation is that Taft will be nominated;
and it is hot going too far to say
that tho. Republicans, In and out of
Congress who have carefully gouo
over tln> situation, are fearful of tho
President Roosevelt regards Taft's
nomination as a foregone conclusion.
He, too, entertains some misgivings
bout the result next November,-.but

tins ye'ur to pottle 'some, old :-nro.
with Him. There ls no doubt of'
that fact. With an assurance that
Roosevelt .w'ould succeed hlmsolf,
Congress undoubtedly would have
treated his recommendations with
greater consideration during th?
last winter. It was taken for grant
ed, however, that lie was to retire
early next year, and the Congress has
played horse with him.
Moro bitterness of feeling than ever
hofoiM bas boon created between the
House and the Senate. Crimina
tions and recriminations have been
made by the one branch and by the
other. Speaker Cannon hits been
charged with all sorts of things by
the Semite and the leaders among tho
Republicans of tin.* Senate-have leen
charged willi ignoring the public will
and standing only for their own sel
fish di's i res.
Thus, a serious condition of politi
cal affairs has been created. Gen
erally, it ls believed that Taft and
Bryan will be the opposing candi
dates. A short Hmo ago, it was ex
pected that tho Republican candi
date would have practically a walk
over at tho election, but in th?? last,
month there has been a notable chan
ge in sentiment. Among both Re
publicans and Democrats it is con
ceded that Bryan has a strong chanco
of winning this year. Some Republi
cans even are pessimistic about tho
November results if Taft he nomi
nated. lt is realized that there will
be a spirited contest with the result
much in doubt.
lt is perfectly evident that thc Re
publican physicians have not been
able this year to prepare ?ho country
for the great operation next fall, lu

few days ago, Senator "Bob" Taylor,
ol Tennessee, told this significant
