THE NATIONAL GUARD AND
There has been so much objection to the
ordering of the national guard to parade in New
York City on July 4 that The Tribune publishes
the coupon below in order to give that opposition
a free channel of expression.
If you are not in favor of making the national
guard parade, sign the coupon and send or mail
to The New- York Tribune, New York City.

THE FOURTH
SOLDERS DISPUTE MAYOR
Many Deny Majority of Guards
men Want to Parade.
BALK AT "SHOW MARCHING
Declare Gaynor Is Ignorant of
Exacting Duties of Their
Regular Schedule.
Mayor Gaynors assertion, In Ms letter to
Commander Russell Raynor, of the naval
militia, that the majority of the national
guard and naval militia was ready and
anxious to join in the celebration on Inde
pendence Day. met with contradiction yes
terday from numerous guardsmen, officers
and friends of the citizen soldiery.
"If the Mayor would get acquainted with
our schedule and learn at first hand just
what is asked of us in the regnlar course
of events, he would not be so ready to re
quest additional service." was the most fre
quent and the mi:dest complaint.
Officers in the "Ist, the 23d in Brooklyn,
the t&th, l^th and Zkl regiments, each of
which has a ten days' camp detail at near
by forts on its summer schedule, and the
which returned last Sunday from a
similar tour of duty at Fort Wright, were
not slow to criticise the spirit which, as
they said, "would make a play-toy for
show purposes out of the guard."
Colonel William C. Church, editor of "The
Army and Navy Journal," declared that
Mayor Gaynor was dealing with the matter
as ;•" he thought the national gruard was
still the same organization that it was in
his youth.
"But it is a very different proposition now
to what it was a few years ago," Baid Colo
nel Church. "These men would parade,
and do It cheerfully, but it is an imposition
v ask them to go It. The Mayor says he
hasn't heard them complain. Of course, he
bSEBt, and he won't. They'd be court mar
tialled if they did, but that Is not the poinu
The whole thing In a nutshell is simply
this: The national guard is our sec
ondary line of defence, a military organiza
tion which is subject to the orders of the
President in time of need, and this parade
not only does not advance its efficiency
in any way, but uses up both time and
money that Ehould go toward making the
members better soldiers."
Kxact figures on the financial phase of
the question were given by an officer in the
guard, who said that it would cost eacli
regiment $600 for music in the parade, and
each mounted officer would have to pay out
?8 for horse hire.
The music fee would be taken out of the
regimental allowance given by the state, a
fund which is supposed to be used for the
purpose of furthering the fighting efficiency
of the guard, and the horse hire was a per
sonal matter with each officer. He must
turnteb that out of his own pocket.
"And look at that," said one guardsman
;. "sirrday : "each officer is to contribute $S
\n this parado. when the committee is hav
h)g ail kinds of trouble in getting even our
affluent citizens to 'come through' with
iheir contributions.''
Colonel Church declared that the parade
was of no value whatever in a military
sense. "The men don't learn anything by
marching over city streets," he said, "ami
the officers do not learn anything by lead
ing their men over the pavements. The
national guard is not - a parade organiza
tion, and it is high time that some people
learned that fact, and learned also what a
Urn of the duties are that we require from
our . guardsmen, who give their services
without pay.
"Every one knows about, the drill, but
every one doesn't know, apparently, that
we ask them also to serve ten days in a
year In camp or fort, several half days ot
outdoor drill, besides two days of rifle prac
tice. Just count that up, and you'll find
that our guardsmen use up the ordinary two
weeks of vacation they gft from their regu
lar employment In learning soldiery, and,
more than that, have to take a few days on
their own time to do all the work they are
called on to do in the course of a summer.
This Independence Day many of them wore
facing the first real vacation they have ha.l
in years, three days of freedom, when thU
order ended it.
"The Tribune's crusade is a good thins,
and even if It should not result In having
the order rescinded It will surely call at
tention to the fact that our national guard
is not a mere parade organization, to be
called out any time to make a holiday spec
tacle."
Colonel Church was of the opinion that
such impositions would ha-, a tremendoui
effect upon the recruiting of the nation*!
guard.

[By The Associated PreH-1
Oyster Bay, June 25.— Theodore Roose
velt may never make another political
speech In his life, as he told the news
paper men the other day, but he Is go
ing to roll up his sleeves and plunge

rh In hiß life, aa he told the news
r men the other day, but he is go

the thick of the political fight that

New York State. ...*'.
Mr. Roosevelt persists In his refusal
to talk politics for publication, but it
may nevertheless be said with authority
that he will devote his every effort to
save the Republican party from the de
feat which he thinks menaces it In this
state, and that he will not shirk the re
sponsibilities which have been placed
on his shoulders by those who look to
him as the one man who can command
the situation-
Out of the coming conference between
Mr. Roosevelt and Governor Hughes will
issue an articulated policy. The Gov
ernor and the ex-President will go over
the entire political situation as it exists
In New York State to-day. Mr. Roose
velt will indicate his belief that if the
Governor accepts a place on the United
States Supreme Court bench, as the
Governor has already signified his in
tention to do. and thus withdraws en
tirely from active politics, the result
may be disastrous to his party.
Will Present the Situation.
Mr. Roosevelt , may not, and probably
will not, request the Governor in so
many words to become a candidate for
a third term. He will present the situa- .
tion as he sees It, leaving it to the Gov- !
ernor to decide, after he has learned Mr.
Roosevelt's views, whether or not he
should retract his positive statements
that he will not accept another nomina
tion, sacrifice his place on the bench of
the Supreme Court and go back into
harness for two years more at Albany.
Such a decision would carry with It a
full understanding that in the event of a
Republican defeat Governor Hughes
would find himself with neither a seat ■
on the bench nor a seat in the execu
tive chamber. •
As a side light -on the situation it Is
also known that Mr: Roosevelt favors
some sort of primary reform legislation,
although he has not had the opportunity
to study the various plans that have
been proposed, and he has not decided
which of them, if any. has his approval.
Mr. Roosevelt gave the newspaper, men ,
to-day his first interview of any length
since his return from abroad. Politics
was barred. He refused to discuss the
coming . visit of Governor Hughes, fur
ther than to repeat that no final day for
the visit had been set. He was asked
if he had not invited ; a number of po
litical leaders, both regulars and insur
gents, to accept his hospitality.
Hughea's Call Significant.
"With the exception of Governor
Hughes," he answered, "I have Invited
no one here except to make social visits."
"Shall you see President Taft at Bev
erly when you go to Cambridge for the
Harvard commencement next week?"
"I don't know," was his only reply.
Ivard commencement next week?"
don't know." was his only reply.
Mr. Roosevelt was at luncheon . when
the newspaper men arrived. He had at
table the largest number of guests since
his return from abroad. There were thir
teen visitors, ten of whom had come all
the way from Peoria. 111., with an in
vitation from Archbishop Spalditig ask
ing him to speak before the Knights of
Columbus at Peoria on Columbus Day.
October 12. Mr. Roosevelt promised to
take the matter under consideration and
hoped he might find it possible to accept.
The other guests were Dr. Hart Mer

mend the wise stand that your excellent
paper has taken on the subject.
I hardly think Mayor Gaynor has the
right idea about the thing. We of the guard
rave not the slightest objection to the pa
rade as such; what we object to is the time
at which It occurs, which means to many of
us the loss of the only vacation we can
possibly have this year. Personally, I feel
lhat the ten days' tour of camp duty that
our regiment takes in August will be all
the time that 1 can spare from my busi
ness this year, and I had planned to spend
the three or four days from Friday, July 1.
to Tuesday, July 6, In the country with my
family.
I have no doubt that this is the case with
many of my comrades. It is an imposition
to ask us to sacrifice this for a useless
affair like this, and if the Mayor would
consent to lay aside his customary stub
bornness and consider this matter fairly I
am cure he would see the justice of It. He
has many excellent characteristics and has
done some much needed work in the City
Hall, but sometimes it is just as much an
element of greatness to change the mind
as it is to persist.
My Individual feelings, however, or those
of any other member are not the principal
objection to this. Service in the national
guard is constantly becoming more exact
ing; more and greater demands are being
made upon officers and men. This is caused
by the development of the art of war; the
lessons taught by recent conflicts abroad
are heinif taken seriously here, and we are
constantly striving to merit our place now
as the f=«»oond line of defence. This service
is performed gladly and with increasing in
terest by most of us. We look for no im
mediate reward and we receive none, ex
cept the pleasure of the service Itself and
the opportunity to some day perhaps so
acquit ourselves as to shed a little addi
tional lustr* on the uniform we xear and
the colors we salute.
Rut we must have men to work with.
The present members, or a certain propor
tion of them, are gradually dropping- out,
becoming interested in other pursuits, some
of them incapacitated by illness or acci
dent or age. We muct have recruits and we
must make the pervlce attractive to a new
man. We cannot expect the lure of the
service itself to influence a new man: this
is gradually acquired.
This parade is going to do more to hurt
recruiting than anything else possibly could,
and none realizes it better than the line
officers of the different commands. Every
disgruntled member of tho guard will com
municate his feellng-s to several friends,
and the effect will be widespread.
If this is persisted in it will be a long
step toward either compulsory service in
the guard or pay for drills and other duty,
and either will destroy the esprit de corps.
For the guard must be recruited if It is t o
be a* efficient force, and we cannot expect
to Interest new men if they are asked not
only to give one or two nights a week for
drilling, only to sacrifice their vacations
every other year and with some of the
commands every year, but also to give up
their holidays to parade. It Is a great mis
take and you are performing a patriotic ser
vice in directing: your influence against It.

Reports That Hughes Is Jealous

EACH ESTEEMS THE OTHER
Invitation to Visu Oyster Bay
Highly Appreciated, and Will
Be Accepted as Soon
as Possible.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Albany, June 25.— Efforts of politicians
to stir up trouble between Theodore
Roosevelt and Governor Hughes, with a
probable view of damaging the Gov
ernor's direct nominations bill, are being
watched with considerable indignation
by the letter's friends here. There is
not much notion they can succeed, as
there exists a pretty thorough under
standing between ex-President Roose
velt and Mr. Hughes, and each Is un
derstood to have a cordial appreciation
of the other's worth. The extent to
which these mischief makers are going
is taken by Hughes men to be another
indication of their desperation.
Reports have been set afloat indus
triously in the last day or two that Gov
ernor Hughes was delaying his visit to
Oyster Bay purposely, from jealousy of
Mr. Roosevelt- It has been said that the
Governor resented any intention on the
part of the distinguished ex-President
and of President Taft to advocate the
passage of a direct nominations bill in
this state. Such action on their part, the
yarns ran. would diminish his "personal
glory" as the "great reformer. " For that
reason he had neglected to set a date
for his visit to Sagamore Hill. He «rsi
putting it off from day to day, in fact
he was administering a snub to Mr.
Roosevelt, and studiously affronting him
at a time when the Republican party
needed his leadership most. Much time
and attention have been given to spread
ing such storLes abroad. Exactly what
their authors hoped to accomplish
veiled in mystery. The facts are so
evident and known so widely that the
mischief makers behind those stories
could not have hoped to deceive many
persons long, any more than could those
persons who maliciously represented Mr.
Roosevelt to be sending out word that
he was against direct nominations.
Will See Roosevelt at Cambridge.
The fact is that Governor Hughes ap
preciates greatly the invitation to visit
Oyster Bay, and will go there just as
soon as it is possible. That is not likely
to be for several days, but he egpects to
see Mr. Roosevelt at Cambridge on
Wednesday. It may be that at that
time a date for the visit, mutually satis
factory, can be arranged.
The Governor, since the Legislature
adjourned and for a long time during
the session, has been working night and
day. It is not uncommon for him to
work until 2 a. m., and 1 a. m. is more
frequently his quitting time than mid
night. He will finish to-night and to
morrow with the thirty-day bills. Mon
day he Most devote some attentiOH to
a week's accumulation of correspondence
and executive business. Tuesday night
he 1b scheduled to leave this city for
Cambridge, where on Thursday he is
to deliver the Phi Beta Kappa address
at Harvard. He has not had time to
write a word of that address yet. After
delivering it he must hurry' back here on
the first train, because the Legislature
will reconvene for real business on
Thursday night and may want to ad
journ on Friday.
Any notion that Mr. Hughes is or
would be Jealous of any rart President
Taft or ex-President Roosevelt might
take in bringing about the passage of a
direct nominations bill and harmonizing
party conditions in this state is almost
ludicrous. Governor Hughes is far from
considering direct nominations a "one
man" issue, as his adversaries try to
make it appear. He has said repeatedly
that it was not "his" issue, but "the
people's," and that the people would car
ry it on regardless of what happened to
him. He has done all that was possible
and proper for him to do to get a direct
nominations law. He has worked for
such a law in every way save by use of
patronage and his veto power, and hopes

Governor Out of «••"• Early.
But even before he accepted Presi
dent Taff. appointment to the Supreme
Court the Governor was out of the issue
in any conceivable personal sense, as he
had announced that under no circum
stances would he accept renomlnatton.
Mr. Hughe** friends say that to repre
sent him M being jealous of any interest
the two Republicans he respects so much
might show in this movement is to make
him out to be ridiculously small and
petty minded. They feel that the asser
tion is so ridiculous that it carries Its
own answer with it. > _ ->^ .
indications are that when the Legis
lature reconvenes on Thursday night
there will be a great shifting of senti
ment on direct nominations from what
It was last Monday night. President
Taffs frank statement of his support
of the principle to many New York
State Republicans has done much to
encourage direct nominations men.
though the anti-Hughes bosses are try
ing to belittle It. Colonel Roosevelt's
prompt denial that he was urging oppo
sition to the direct nominations bill and
Collector Loeb's declaration that he fa
vored it spiked the guns of the bosses
to a considerable extent. The question
now bothering progressive Republicans
is whether the Barnes- Wads worth -Wood
ruff group of Republicans, under the
circumstances, will nail the black flag
to the "masthead" and try to sink the
ship if they cannot command it. . For
that's the way their fight now is re
garded.
