WAbiilNOlUN, u. L., April
Western politics, V. W. Jennane, Washington correspondent of the
Minneapolis Journal, and F. A. Johnson of the St. Paul Dispatch,
came back to town today after trips"of several weeks through the north
west for their respective papers.
"Three states are after the vice-presidency on the Republican ticket,"
.aid Mr. Johnson this afternoon, "Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Iowa wants Gov. Cummins to have it, but the anti-tariff revision people
bar the way. Minnesota thinks Gov. Van Sant would be a good man.
He is very 'popular on account of his course in the Northern Securities
case. Wisconsin is getting ready to urge Gov. ila Follette."
"Wouldn't that be about the limit for the conservative cast, Roosevelt
dnd La Follette?'
"I guess it would Ivitid of rile them down Wall street way, but the
west isn't staying awake of nights' worrying about Wall street troubles.
L never saw anything like the wave of popularity for Roosevelt that has
swept over the western country. He is the most popular man who has
been before the public since the days of Blaine."
"What do the Democrats think about the situation?"
"They don't know what to think; they haven't any one to focus their
thoughts on. When you talk about presidential candidates to a Demo
crat out west the only fixed idea he has is that the candidate ought to be
a man who supported the ticket of

I'or three weeks, said Mr. Jermane, 1 have been traveling through
Wisconsin, Minnesota, the Dakotas, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri, part
of the time with President Roosevelt's party. The thing which im
pressed me most, in a political way, is the unanimity with which western
voters, regardless of party, are sounding the praises of the President,
and predicting his nomination and election next year.
"In Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Kansas City, St.
Joseph and St. Louis I was reliably informed that Roosqyelt would poll
a larger western labor vote than ever polled by a Republican candi
date. This vote, as we all know, has always been largely Democratic.
"So far as I could discover, the west is not yet taking any active in
terest in the second place on the Republican ticket. At the proper
time it is probable that half a dozen middle-west states will have candi
dates, but no names are now being. seriously mentioned.
"President Roosevelt had his greatest reception thus far on his west
ern tour at Milwaukee. The program was a copy of the program ar
ranged by that city for the visit of Henry of Prussia, and if what I was
told is true, the President made a stronger impression upon the con
servative German element there than did the Hohenzollern prince. Mil
waukee is the most influential German center in the country, and the
way its people capitulated to the President promises much in the way
of a Republican G&rman vote next year."

Not much sympathy is expressed in Christendom for the ruler known,
in Mr. Gladstone's phrase, as "Abdul the damned." Yet Abdul, wheth
er damned or not, is in a position such as no piler would covet. I lis
mixed population of Mohammedans and Christians in European Turkey
makes an insoluble mass. Reforms demanded for the Christians, and
literally forced upon the sultan of Russia and Austria, inflame his Mo
hammedan subjects to revolt. The Albanians-are a people honestly de
voted, on account of religion, to the Turkish government, and it must
be extremely repugnant to the Ottoman regime to impose on them ob
noxious laws. in order to placate the Macedonian Christians, who never
wlil be content until they break away entirely from the Turkish yoke.
Yet, while the situation has elements that seem, destined to destroy the
Turkish empire in Europe sooner or later, the undoubted determination
of Russia and Austria to postpone the final debacle, if possible, operates
as a fire extintruisjier upon inflammable materials in the Balkans. Tin'
role of the sultan, however, ;s not a happy one, in anv event. No other
European ruler has so difficult a post to fill as Abdul Ilamtd these

BISHOP ESTATE WINS.
The case of Lucy IC. Peabody vs. the
Bishop Estate, which has been on trial
for nearly three weeks before Judge
De Bolt and a Jury, .i-as ended yester
day by the granting of a motion for,
an Instructed verdict for the defendant.
The directed verdict was on the ground
that' plaintiff had not made any claim
,t.o the property when the land In ques-
itlon was conveyed to the Bishop
tate, though possessed of all her rights
at that time." The property wda for
nierly owned by the Princess Ruth and
by her deeded to Bernice Pauahi Bish

the Bishop Estate, but at no time did
Lucy K. Peabody make demand for the
property. The court held that she
