POOR AT PROPHECY.
Some Ohio Political History Furnished
a Roosevelt Opponent.
8p?oial <;orr?t|>of.denr? of The ETvqlng Star.
COLUMBUS. Ohio. December 10.?The
Evening Dispatch, independent republican,
which is owned by Joseph J. Gill, who re
cently resigned his seat in Congress (six
teenth Ohio district), prints the following
editorial:
"The Cincinnati morning republican
newspaper that is congratulating itself on
the theory that President Roosevelt sits tn
mortal terror because of Its editorial ut
terances on the subject of his renomina
tion is the same newspaper that served no
tice on the republican party of Ohio a few
months ago that it would be unwise, im
politic and disastrous to nominate Myron
T. Herrick for governor.
"And yet Col. Herrick was nominated by
the republicans by acclamation, and was
elected by a majority of considerably more
than 100,000.
"As a molder or as a reader of public
sentiment It will not be entirely truthful
to say that the Cincinnati Commercial
Tribune has been infallible within the past
six months."
