HITCHCOCK NOT POPULAR
Washington. Deo 27 GobhIii d.h t.i
the probability of tho retirement of
Secretary of State Jolm liny and of
Secretary of tho Interior R. A. Hitch

ptobahlo that Hecrotar) Hay will lonvo

nays neulth seems to bo much bcttur

Ish to presume that tho man who Is.
to all Intents and purposes, "Vice
President" for tho Secretary of Statu
would succeed to tho Presidency In
tho ovent of tho death of President
ltoosovclt would teslgn his position
unless thero were sotr strong reason
for his doing so Of course. Col. Hay
h not expecting nnythlng to happen
to tho President, but tho possibility of
such a nclamlty is not to bo overlook
ed. Secretary Hitchcock lacks some
thing In general popularity. Ills is
not a nature that wins affection, and
ho has succeeded, by his strict Inter
pretation of tho luwB, by his antago
nism to scheming pension attornevs
nnd to tho men who sco fortunes In
timber cutting on Government land
in winning tho opposition of somo
Western politicians. They seem to bo
gunning for Hitchcock, but that Is
Just tho poltcj calculated to make him
secure In tils position, for President
Hoosevelt respects a man who dock
his duty oren If ho wins tho opposition
of politicians. It, then, appears ".ory
itnllUely that Hitchcock will resign.
