, i. "Mr. Sherman haa been sick all of
thia year, due to condition of the kid

, aoftening of the muscles of the heart,
which is somewhat stretched. Mr.
Sherman had an attack in the Adiron
dacka?at Big Mooae, to be exact?irt
June. and I expected him to die. Ha
got out of Big Moose safely and im
proved steadily and very aatiafactority
until the latter part of Auguet. Sinca
than his condition haa been aggravated
and he has been steadily failing.
"For the last three weeka, aince ha
came back from Connecticut, whara ha
went to rest, he has been dreaaed only
once, and that was a week ago Friday,
when, against my proteat, he went out
to the polls to register.
, | "Mr. Sherman ia now in tha condition
which that sort of trouble leada to, and
I is very aerioualy ill, but there ia, I be*

a4lmltted to b. lacklng. but lt waa de?
clared that only party dlaclpllne and
honor had in the paat bound elcotors to
?ote for thelr party nomlnees. No one
suggested. however, that a choice by the
Republican National Committee or ita ex?
ecutive committee would fall to recelve
the aupport of the Taft electors.
<*rdlnarlly. should there be no Vlce
rresident, the Ptesldent pro tem. ot the

i the Hne of succes?lon to the Presldeacy
'would be to the Secretary of State. Por

has been vacant.
