ROOSEVELT IK COMMA* D
Never in the history of the United
States has a man assurred control of a
political party more Completely than
has President Roosevelt taken posses
sion of the republican party at the
present time, and never was there a
smaller or more select political cabinet
chosen to advise a political leader .han
the ooeterie of men who are beia? al
most daily consulted by the remarkable
man who occupies the White House.
W e are told one day that President
Roosevelt has selected one of his secre
taries to be chairman of the republ can
national committee, and the next we
are told that the chief executive is at
work upon the republican platform.
He some time ago selected the maa to
place his name in nomination before
the national convention, whom he had
report to the White House where he
told him what he wanted said in the
speech. The president's interview
with Ex-Gov. Black, who is to m^ke
the nominating speech, terminated ? ith
the agreement that a completed draft
of the speech would be submitted to the
president a sufficient time before its de
livery to permit the latter to make any
desired alterations in it. In the mean
time politicians are awaiting with not
a little interest the tinal announcement
by .Jr. Roosevelt of the nameofbim
whom he desires to be his running
Id all this work, the president's ad
visers are confined to E* -Secretary
Root. Senator Lodge and Postmaster
General Payne, with one or two other
cabinet members occasionally permit
ted to be present at an interview.
Well, there Is no reason why it
should not be thus. As Henry Watter
sjn recently said, no matter what the
platforms of the two political parties
for the coming campaign might be, the
the issue will be Roosevelt. Roosevdt
is the republican platform, and he w .11
so remain, no matter what plants
might be written into the report of tLe
committee on resolutions which will lie
named by the Chicago convention. :t
being conceded that the great political
duel is to be fought by lioosevelt on the
one side and those opposed to Roo&e
veltism on the other, it is but fair that
the rough-rider president should be
permitted to choose his weapons, his
seconds and his aides.
In speaking of the late republican
convention at Juneau, John G. Ileid
"We had a big majority of the dele
gates in the convention and would have
had the support of those who were un
able to reach the convention. Ours is
the regularly elected delegation and
will certainly be so recognized."
If Mr. Heid desires to be governor ol
Alaska the less he says of the late re
publican convention the better it will
be for him.
An Everett girl has advertised (or a
husband through an employment
agency, but has thus far not secured an
answer that the agency deems worthy
of submitting to her. The Daily Alas
kan suggests to the Everett damsel and
all her friends that its advertising rates
are reasonable and guaranteed to bring
results. Just try the columns of ihis
paper, Xliss Everett.
The fact that Senator Tillman is a
supporter of Judge Parker for the dem
ocratic presidential nomination indi
cates that the New Yorker is not con
lined to the "gold democracy," sc
c-illed, for his backing.
Several Alaskan towns have already
taken up the matter of celebrating the
Fourth of July. It might not be out of
place to say that Skagway is going to
celebrate that day io due form.
