He dis played no surprise when he received It and Immediately summoned his stenog rapher to dictate the acceptance, which was despatched to Justice Hughes's rest deuce by a messenger. o Comment at While House. None of the White House official would make any comment on the Jus llie's nomination or his resignation from the Supreir.e bench. It Is known, how ever, that the President has had cordial relations with Mr. Hughes throughout the present Administration. Mr. Wilson remained In the White House throughout the day. Contrary to his usual custom of making Saturday a holiday, he received two iHHtlnr callers: These were Senator Walsh of Montuni, who Is writing the planks of the St. louls platform dealing with domestic legislation, and Senator OIHe James of Kentucky, who Is to act as permanent chairman at St. Louis. Senator Walsh read over the tentative draft of that part of the platform en trusted to him and Senator James read the Democratic campaign speech to be delivered by him when he accepts the gavel of the Democratic convention from the hands of Temporary Chairman Mar tin H. Glynn. During the day the Presi dent had been In touch with the situa tion at Chicago and Oyster Hay through frequent bulletins received by telegraph at the White House. The President's first public utterance after the Chicago convention will be his speech to the graduating class of the United States Military Academy at West Point on Tuesday. Officials are of the opinion that the President In that ad dress will at least give general consid eration to the statement made by Jus tice Hughes. The President Is preparing an address on Americanism, to be delivered In Washington on Flag Day, June 14, when he will march as a private citizen in a preparedness parade.

Theodore Roosevelt, his eyes red from lack of aleep and his bronzed face wrinkled from the strain lie has under gone, stood on the veranda of his home on Sagamore Hill this evening and uttered those emphatic words with a tinge of regret In his tone. He wore khaki breeches, heavy golf stockings, low tan shoes and a Norfolk Jacket of khaki. The newspaper correspondents stood on the lawn and camera men were begging for n pose, but the Colonel, who ' had just bidden good-by to the reporters, I telling them there) was no need of their remaining In Oyster Hay any longer, , refused to pose. "I am out of politics," he repeated. Col. Roosevelt visibly was tired after i the many hours of sleepless nights spent I In his gunroom at the other end of a : long distance telephone wire that ran to ' Chicago. He did not show any of his ' old time buoyancy and cheerlness, none of his Impetuous spirit. They Kind a I'hmiKril Man. As he waved a final good-by to the ' reporters and stopped a moment to look t down toward the bay he (save the lm-J presslon that he waw through lighting ; but then, the best of Col. Roosevelt's I friends knew that if the opportunity i offers he Is likely to swing back Into the tight, and If not for himself, then for un..lw..l.. all- I fU.ll ,VM i t .... . Timt was the parting scene. When the. correspondents trooped up to Saga more Hilt at 0 o'clock in accordance with word received at Oyster Hay they found the Colonel much changed from yesterday They knew of the mesage 1 which he had sent to the Progressive convention saying he could not accept the Progressive nomination at this time and suggesting that his conditional re fusal be placed In the hands of the Pro gressive committee. They felt that he naturally could not be pleased with the day's events nt Chicago, but as they ooked at him and 'noted the wearieii expression on his face they realized that ' he had taken the situation more poign antly than ho cared to show. Col, ( Roosevelt looked nt the correspondents and grinned not the grin of yesterday j nut a gnosl or it, "What have 1 got to say?" he asked beforo the reporters had a ehanre to put the question. "Nothing at nil. Nothing" Tells of 111 Decision. The sinlle died away and for several ' moments Col. Roosevelt stood silent. The correspondents also were silent. There . was an awkward pause-. The reporters i looked at the Colonel Incredulously and I waited. Finally he broke the silence by offering to tell them what he had said over the long distance telephone to the Progressive National Committee. Sinmllnz with one hand In his pocket In a casual sort of way. with no emphatic gesture and no rising Intonation In his voice, ho gave a brief resume of his message to the Progressives. Col. Roosevelt told of his conditional refusal and explained he had told the committee to consider Justice HuKhcs'tt statement nnd let him know whether they found It satisfactory. He said that If the conclusion of the lYogresslve com mittee was Hittafdctory to him, then the rondltlonnl iefus.il would become ah-, solute.

Asked If ho had nny Idea as to when the Pro gressive committee would communicate with him, he said he had none, He pointed nut Hint his suggestion of Sen ntor Lodge ns a compromise candidate had been presented to the Republican convention before the final ballot had been taken. Ho explained Unit at 4 o'clock this morning over the telephone he talked with two of the Progressive mid two of the Republican conferees mid that then he had made the com pinmlse suggestion, At the time, said Col, Roosevelt, the suggestion seemed to be Just what the Republican conferees wanted, but later the same confercea .went back to the convention and Joined In the nomination of Justice Hughes. "And now, gentlemen," he said, rousing himself, "I'll say good-by, There's no use of you coming up here again or staying In town."

I have wished to remain on the bench, but In this critical perlixl of our nntlonnl history I recognize that It 1 your right to summon and that It l my paramount duty to respond. You speult at u time of national exigency transcend ing merely partisan consideration. You voice the de mand for n dominant, thnroughgolnfr Americanism with firm prote-ctlve- upbuilding policies essential to your peace and security; and to that call In this crisis I can nut fall to answer with the pletlge eif all that Is in me to the service of our country. Therefore I ccet the nomination. Our Weakness in Maslco. 1 stand for the firm and unflnchlng mntiilcnance of nil the rights of American citizens on land anil sen. I neither Impugn meitlves nor underestimate difficul ties. Hut It Is most regrettably true that in our foreign relations we havo suffered incalculably from the weal; nnd vacillating course- which has been taken with re garel to Mexico, a course lamentably wrong with re gard to both our rights and our duties. We Interfered without consistency, nnd while seek ing to dictate when w wito not concerned wo utterly failed to miprcclnte and discharge our plain duty to our own citizens. At the outset of the Administration the Ugh responsibilities of our diplomatic Intercourse with foreign nations were subordinated to a concep tion of partisan tveiulrements and we presented to the world a humiliating spectacle, of Ineptitude. Related efforts have nut availed to recover the Influence and prestige so unfortunately sacrificed, and brnve words have not Ixen stripped of their force by Indecision. I desire to see our diplomacy restored to Its best stnndnrtls nnd tn have these advanced; to have no sacrifices of national Interests to partisan expediency, to have the first ability of the country always nt its command, here nnd abroad, in diplomatic Intercourse; to maintain firmly our rights under International law, Insisting steadfastly upon all our rights as neutrals, and fully performing our International obligations; and by the clear correctness and Justice of our position and our manifest ability nnd disposition to sustain them to dignify our place among the nations. I stand for an Amerlcnnlsm which knows no ulterior purpose, for a patriotism which Is single and complete. Whether native or naturalized, of whatever nice or creed, we have but erne country nnd we do not for tin instant tolerate nny division of ulleulanci'. "Atturc Absolutely Our Security." I believe In making prompt provision to assure abso lutely our nntional security. I believe In preparedness, not only entirely nde(unte for our defence with respect to numbers and equipment, In both nrmy unci navy, hut with all thoroughness to the end that In each branch of the service there may bo the utmost efficiency under the most competent administrative heads. W are. devoted to the ideals of honorable peace. We wish to promote nil wisp and practical measures for tho Just settlement of International peace. In view of our abid ing ideals, there Is no dangvr of militarism In this coun try. We huve no policies if aggression; no lust for territory; no real for strife. It is in this spirit that we demand adequate provision for national defence, and we condemn the Inexcusable neglect that lias been shown in this matter of first national Importance. We must have the strength which self-respect demands, the strength of nn efficient nation ready for every emergency. Our preparation must be Industrial and economic us well as military. Our severest test will come after the war is over. Wo must make a fair and wise readjust ment of the tariff, In nccordnne-e with sound protective principle, to Insure our economic Importance and to maintain American standards of living. We must con serve the best Interests of labor, realizing that In de uocracy patriotlum and national' strength must be rooted lu even handed Justle-e. In preventing, as we must, unjust discrimination nnd monopolistic practices wc must still be zealous to assure the foundations of honest business. Particularly should wo seek the ex pansion of foreign trade. Wo must not throttle enterprise here, or abroad, but lather promote It and take pride In honorable achieve ment. We must take up the serious problems of trans portation, of Interstate and foreign commerce In a sensible and candid manner and provide an enduring basis for prosperity by the Intelligent use of the con stitutional isjwers of Congress so ns adequately to pro tect the public on the one hand and on the other to conserve the essential Instrumentalities of progress. The Whole Platform Approved. I stand for the principles of our civil service laws. In every department of government the highest effi ciency must Ik Insisted upon, l'or nil laws nnd pro grammes are vain without efficient and lmpurtlnl ad ministration. I cannot within the limits of this statement speak upon nil the subjects that will require attention. I can only say that I fully Indorse the platform you have ailoped, I deeply appreciate the responsibility you impose. I should have been glad to have that responsibility placed upon another. Hut 1 shall undertake to meet It, grate ful for the confidence you exprrss. I sincerely trust thnt ull former dlfferene'es may In forgotten and that we may have unlti'd effort In n patriotic realization of our national need and opportunity.

Having made Justice Hughes their candidate solely because thev i were unable to concentrate on any other man the leaders remained gluni when the choice was registered and the delegates relapsed into apathv.

"Therefore, if you desire an immediate de cision, I must decline the nomination.
