Whatever may have passed between the ^
President and intimate personal frler.ds g

hinted today by friends close to the ^
President that he is likely to take some gj
time In considering the merits of the
republican leaders whose names may be J?
mentioned. ^
Prominent among these are Gov. Had- K
ley of Missouri. Gov. Eberhardt of Minne- g
sota. Gov. Dineen of Illinois, Senator ^
Borah of Idaho. Senator Brown of Ne- ^

Maine, who won the senatorshlp fight In g
the republican primaries of that state: g
Senator Cummins of Iowa. Gov. Hooper g
of Tennessee. Senators Root and L?odget 6

j If the choice of a candidate for Vice ^
j President were to be made prior to the ^
j election, many republicans say, it would ^
| probably be from among Hadley, Deneen, ^
. Borah or Eberhardt. To be made after ^
J the election, however, with the election ^
} returns as a light to go by, the situation ji
j may be different. It Is known that the 4
j President has high regard for all of the ^
] men mentioned, with a personal liking 4
? and regard for Hadley and Eberhardt. ^
j The selection of a candidate to be K
j voted for will be made with as much
I care by the President and the national /
j committee as if the results of another ^
j election depended upon it. Whether or not ^
| he is defeated at the polls the President 4
i holds the. future of his party as of Jm- ?
j mense importance, and he would not 4
| want to see a mistake made in the se- ^
| lection of a choice for Vice President. ?
* With a wealth of sturdy and strong re|
publicans to pick from the final selection 4
i will not be difficult. 8
3 Must Look to Future. ^
j When the results of the November elec- 8
j tion are looked over and an analysis made g
i It will be for the republicans to con- ^
| sider far-reaching plans for the future. ^
In the event of the election of the Presi- ?
4 y
| dent for another term not so much con- 4
i I slderatlon will be necessary. He will he a
4 X
| the leader of the party and its future in ^
, his keeping. ?
| He will judge conditions as they con- 4
h front him. But if he is defeated, the fj
J party will be without a leadership so ^
j potent as that of a man in the White 2
s House. Mr. Taft will admittedly continue ^
* to be probably the most influential man ?
iln his party, but the question of a policy 4
to be followed is vital to the future of g
the organization. g
2
Division of Politics. ^
I 4
i Thoughtful men in politics are begin- ^
ning to see the politics of the country, in ^
- the days to come, everlastingly divided on ^
radical or conservative lines. The old ^
_ parties may retain their names, but con- ^
~ servatism will be the policy of one and y.
radicalism that of the other. t:
Will the leaders determine to make the J,
conservative cause the one upon which }:
.the party is to pin its future? Will Mr. a
I Taft advocate this cause in the coming ^
together of the party leaders over the ^
i vice presidency? Will the republicans in ^
Senate and House hereafter follow these a
lines? g
So, in the event of the defeat wf the re- ^
publicans next Tuesday, the ;>olicy of the y<
organization will lie of far greater importance
than the mere voting for a can- |>
didate who cannot be elected in the tj
I electoral college. With these thoughts in rc
the minds of the leaders, the selection of 5
a candidate becomes secondary and to be
made with a view to furthering the policy
that is to become the party's watchword.
Taft Goes to Baltimore.
President Taft, who returned to Wash!
ington tliis mormng from his trip to New
York to attend the launching of tin- batt
tleship New York, remained in the execufj
tive oi?.ces attending to"work and seeing
t visitors until noon, when he left to visit
t a friend. Walter V. Broo-ks, sr., in Green
t Spring valley, near Baltimore,
t; He had luncheon with Mr. Brooks and
II a number of friends, and is to return
to Washington late this afternoon.
5 Baltimore people today said that a

: crats who are supporting the President *
had been invited to the luncheon. I
: It has been known for a long time that I
hundreds of Maryland democrats, espo- I
dally' business men, are giving their sup
port to the President, and the latter's
: ardent friends have been claiming that
lie will carry the state because of the
j big vote he will get in Baltimore. The
; visit to Green Spring valley may or may
not have any significance.
The President went in the big White
House automobile, and was accompanied
by Maj. Rhoads, his personal aid. ^

AFT ANNOUNCES DEATH
AT NEW YORK BANQUET
NEW YORK, October SI.?The news of
Ice President Sherman's death reached
resident Taft while he was at a hanlet
given by the employes qf the New
ark navy yard in celebration of the
unching of the battleship New York.
;e President plainly showed his grief.
The banquet had been enjoyed by 1.200
en at tables on the floor of the 13th
egiment armory. Sumner and Jefferson
enues, Brooklyn. TJie cigars had been
Lssed around, and -scores of waiters
ere busily refilling the glasses with
lainpagne while in the balconies, 1,500
rsons. mostly women, were feasting on
e brilliant scene about them. The
esident sat at a raised table at one
id of the armory, surrounded by noted
n. statesmen and naval and military
lieej-s in their gold laden uniforms.
The President had delivered a light,
most humorous address to the builders
the great battleship; Secretary of the
ivy George vi>ti L. Meyer had oongratated
the employes of the navy yard;]

This operative handed the message to

te moment before he had been laughg
and talking with Rear Admiral R. A.

s eyes filled as he pushed his chair
vav from the banquet board. He placed
handkerchief to his eyes and handed
e message to the rear admiral. Then
was sent to Mr. Calder and Mr. Fitzrald.

thing had happened. But a few feet further
away, and then all over the immense
armory hall rang laughter and
the clink of glasses.
Rear Admiral Watt went to where Mr.
Stoeker was speaking, and, interrupting
him. whispered that the President had an
announcement to make. As he ended his
address abruptly the President, seemingly
with difficulty, arose. The laughter
and buzz of conversation continued. The
President raised his hand for silence,
holding a slip of paper in his hand.
Taft Announces His Death.
"Three years ago, when we met on a
like occasion to celebrate the launching
of the Florida, you were honored by the
presence of Vice President Sherman," he
said.
"It is now my sad duty to announce
that word has been received that tne

Vice President is dead."
Thf? iras-n of surnrise that ran throuKtl
the thousands of merrymakers in the arrnemory
interruped the President. Com- *
manding silence with his upraised hand |
again, lie continued: |
"It is a great loss to all of us. Those 3
who knew him loved him. and those who |
knew of his service to his country held | ?
him in the highest honor and regard. 1 ; |
wish to ask that this meeting now a?l- s
journ in honor of his memory and that |
no further speeches be made.'1 >
It was apparent tliat the President ?
wished to speak more of the Vice Presi- ?
dent's virtues, and' he backed away from \
the table with his head bowed.
The silence throughout the armory was S
intense as a detachment of the l.'ith Regi- ?
rnent surrounded Mr. Taft and escorted ?
him out of the armory, through double S
rows of militiamen at present arms. =
