Mr. Roosevelt's Friends Think As-
pirants for the Presidency Should
Announce Themselves.
If He Is to Meet With Opposition
They Want to Know
JUw York Sun Speolal Service.
Chicago, Dec. 9.Walter Wellman,
in a Washington special to the Record
Herald, says
Does Senator Hanna intend to be a
candidate for the presidency
he not
9 Th e friends of Presidensdoero t
Roosevelt want to know They ai e
beginning to insist that if there are to
be other aspirants foi the republican
nomination next ear the time has
come when they should show their
hands. They say they ha\e no objec
tion to the appearance of other can
didates in the fieldthis is a fiee
country and any man has the right to
aspire to the presidencybut fail
play demands, they maintain, that if
there is" to be a contest over the nomi
nation those who are to make it
should delay no longer in an -
nouncing their purpose
There is no doubt as to where Mr.
Roosevelt stands. H e has ne-\er con
cealed his wish to be nominated by the
republican party and to be re-elected
by the votes of the people He was
called by fate to the office, of president
and in that office he has done the best
he could. H e stands on his record
He has insisted with his intimate
friends and his political advisers that
if the party is not content with the
record he has made and does not wish
to make him its standard beaier, he
will not attempt to ga m the nomina
tion by use of the power of his office.
He has more than once declared that
he will not petmit himself to be nomi
nated virtually by fedeial office hold
Roosevelt's Position.
He has forbidden his supporteis to
set in motion the agencies which con
trol delegates in many states, notably
in the south, almost entnely thru the
influence of those who hold fedeial
appointment If the president is to
be nominated at all he insists that it
shall be by the spontaneous voice of
the party. H e does not want the
nomination and will not seek to get it
in aiw other wa
If there are to be other candidates,
the president's friend* argue it is only
fair that they should pie&ent them
selves before the party and the coun
try now. It is not fair, in their es
timation, that influential republicans
Bhould linger in the baikgiound, more
or less secietlv discussing the avail
ability of the president as a candidate
next year, scrutinizing his record and
pointing out the difficulties that may
stand in the way of his re-election,
creating a feeling of distrust and anxi
ety, as long as no other aspirant is in
the field.
As Senator Foraker has pointed out
in an interview, objections can be
raised to any candidate, no matter who
he may be. There is no such thing as
the Ideal man , satisfactory to every
one. If there are other candidates, or
are to be others, they should have
their names announced
