WOULD HOLD OFFICE TO NOVEMBER, 1913 Congress Would Be Called Uoon To Provide For Special Presidential Election. By JUDSON C. WELLIVER. A Presidential election in Novem ber, 1912, and another in November, 1013! That anomalous and unprecedented possibility is boldly announced by Col. George B. M. Harvey, in a con sideration of the political situation in the current number of the North American Review. Colonel Harvey figures thus: The Electoral College, with three important candidates running, may be so divided, after the polling two months hence, that no candidate will have a majority. Thereupon the elec tion falls into tho House. The House, with twenty-two Re publican Stato delegations, twenty two Democratic, and four tied, can not give a majority of States to any candidate. Up To the Senate. The Senate, In this exigency, must elect the Vice President. It It should succeed, he would bocoms President, but would it elect? Colonel Harvey doubts it, for the same reasons that have been pointed out In The Times heretofore. He analyzes the close party division or the Senate, and points-out hdt the group of Progressive or In 'surcont Republican Sonatorb hold the balance of power. The would, pre sumably, jefuse to vote for either Shei man or Marshall; therefore, neither of those two could be chosen Vice Presi dent. If this little group should And Itself thus In control of the balance of power, Colonel Harvey thinks, It Is altogether likely that some of them would refuda to participate. If so, the results which would ensue would Involve the prob ability of a special election of President. Provisions of Constitution. The statement of the legal and con stitutional provisions on this subject Is laid down by Colonel Harvey thus: What, asldo from their disapproval of Sherman, could be the motive of Roose velt and his adherents In preventing the election of a Vice President under circumstances which would constitute him President' for four years? A pos sible answer Is to be found In the law of succession (Chapter IV of the acts of the Forty-ninth Congress), which provides that: "In case of the removal, death, resignation or Inability of both the President and Vice-President, then the Secretary of State shall act as President until the disability of the President or Vice-President Is re moved or until a President is olect d. The acting President must, upon taking office, convene Congress, if not at the time in ses sion, In extraordinary session, giv ing twenty days' notice." This statute was enacted by authority Of Article II. section 6, of the Constitu tion, which confers upon Congress the power of "declailng what officer shall then act as President until the disability be removed or a President shall be elected.' The plain Intent of both Constitution and statuto is that "such officer" shall onlv act as Presi dent until a President can bo elected, and the mandatory provision requiring him to convene congress lunnwun is obviously for the purpose of enabling Congress to call a special election under authority conferred by Article II, sec tion -1. In the event, then, of the House of Representatives failing to elect a Presi dent and the Senate failing to elect a Vice President, the piocedure would be as follows: President Taft's flxed term of office would expire at midnight of March 3 and tho Secretary of Stute, Mr. Knox, whose official life Is inde terminate, would become acting Presi dent. As such ho would bo obliged to convene Congress in extraordinary ses sion on March 21 and Congress would "determine the time of choosing elec tors," certainly hot latei than November of the forthcoming year. In this man- Mr Mr Roosevelt und his new party would have a second opportunity to win the Presidency within a twelvemonth. greatly, no doubt, to tho satisfaction of bom.

JOHN (AIMER NY SURVIVE mm OPERATION BE WO OUT Has Admitted His Crooked ness, Declares Leader Of Progressives. URGES PEOPLE TO LEAVE VENAL BOSSES Vermont Gives Rousing Welcome To Candidate of Bull Moose Parry. BENNINGTON, Vt, Aug. 29. Colonel Roosevelt started his throo days' campaign In Vermont' today with a bristling speech at tho ball groundB here, in which ho attacked the Democratic and Republican parties for their boss rule. "If you want to govern yourselves and not have tho venal bosB, such as tho Ponroso type, do It, then you will havo to come with ub," ex claimed the colonel. Gets Rousing Welcome. The crowd gavb tho former President a rousing greeting. Roosevelt was In formed by his workers here that a de cided Progressiva sentiment exlbts In the Stato. Jahies U. Garfield, former Secretary of the Interior, under Roose velt, who has been stumping the State, met the colonel upon his airlw! with encouraging norJs. "We have had crowded meetings everywhere and Intense enthusiasm," ho said. The Prcgresslvo leader sold he ex pected Dr. Frazler Mctgzer, Progres sive candldato for gov rnor. to poll 20, 000 votes ut tho election next Tuesday. "That means," quoted Gai field, "that the election for governor will go Into the Stato legislature. It also means that Roosevelt will carry tho Stato lr. November." Roosevelt "reached 'North Bennington by train and drove here In nn automo bile. At stations along the way crowds yelled.for him, but It was too early for the colonM to be up. He -was cheered by an Immenso throng on the streets here. "Hooray for tho Bull Moose." was the cry that filled the air. As Colonel Roosvelt stepped to tho platform to faco the 6,000 people In the ball park, some ono cried, "Give It to 'em. Teddy." The Colonel grinned. "I'm flourishing under their attacks." he replied. "I'm not as thin as I was in Cuba, anyway." Introduces Himself. Frazer Metzger, the gubernatorial can. dldato. forgot to Introduce tho colonel, bo Roosevelt exclaimed: "Look here, I guess I'll have to Introduce myself." The crowd laughed and tho colonel Dlunged Into his Bpeech. "t happen to stand today symbolizing J a movement that Is to make for im provement of our national life," he said. "We stand for the forces that make for progress. I'm using myself In this fight merely to lead. I have no personal am bition to serve." Ho spoko of getting letters from Re publican admirers who were anxious to voto for him for President, but felt a reluctance to leave the Republican party. . , "Now It is qulto true that many of us may feel a stretching of tho heart strings to leave the old party," he went on. "Abraham Lincoln felt It when in 1856 he had to break away from tho Whig party to go into tho nowly formed Republican party. A demand existed for a party that would, more closely represent the people then, Just as tho demand exists today for a new party. Party Outlives Usefulness. "The Republican party, as well as the Democratlo party, has outlived Its usefulness. The Republican machine left the Republican party at Chicago last June. You are not obliged to travel off In the company of Penrose, Barnes and Guggenheim in that old machine line-up. "Tho machine leaders care mqro for beating mo thun thoy do about elect ing Mr Taft. They have abandoned hope of putting Mr. Taft through, they know they can't do it. The don't caro a rap for Mr Taft, but they're with him to beat me. The reactionaries of both parties are banded together to beat our new party. "To those of you who are afraid of breaking away from tho Republican party, let mo say that you won't be a bit proud to say, later on, that jou were on of the last States to withdraw your support from the reactionary party. You will feet better over It If you can say that you ure In advance of the now movement. "I don't want Vermont to lag behind in this move. The Progressive cause Is going on sure and I want Vermont to be in tho lead instead of at the rag end. In 1856, Vermont broke away from tho Whig party when It found that tho part) had lust Its usefulness as a party of program." Scores Watson's Attitude. The colonel adverted to Tom Watson, the Taft Indiana supporter, having stated that he was coming to Vermont to campaign for the Taft ticket. "Be fore he headed this way he changed his mind," said Roosevelt. "He went South instead, and there, feeling that he was far away from home, he opened his heart. He told the Southern people that Mr Taft's nomination was ob tained through tho steam roller. Now that's right. You all knov. that. They are now trying to Jam that down. I don't think they are going to do It." Tho former President Jumped into the Ponrose-Archbold-Standard OH contro versy. "For some time I have been dwelling upon the alliance of crooked politics and crooked business," said the colonel. "I havo been saying that such a crooked alliance exists.

McCleary Requests "Last Look At His Mother's ' Body." AUTOPSY WILL BE MADE TOMORROW State .Prepares to Resist Insanity Defense If It Is Made. By L. R. COLBURN. HAGERSTOWN, Md.. Aug. 29 Norman Druco McCleary was today recommitted on a charge of murder, ing Mrs. Nannie B. Henry, for a pre liminary hearing at 10 o'clock Satur day morning. Tho prisoner was ar raigned in his cell before Magistrate Daniel W. Doub. The commitment was sworn to by Chief of Police Frldlnger, and charged "that Norman Bruce Mc Cleary did feloniously kill and mur der Nannlo B. Henry." Tho proceed. Ing was Blmply a formal ono and no ono was present excopt tho officers. "Won't you do mo a favor?" asked McCleary of one of the officers aB thoy startod away from his coll. "What is It?" the officer inquired. "PIcaBO lot mo look on my moth er's body before sho Is burled," the prisoner replied. Autopsy Postponed. Asked whv ho thought his mother w-as dead. McCleary replied that he had heard It In some way. and was con vinced she was going to be burled to day. He was assured she was not dead. The autopsv on' Mrs. Henry's body. which was to havo been performed this a f tern iri, has been postponed until to morrow. Dr. Brannum. assistant to the coron3.s physician of Baltimore, who with Dr. Peregion Wroth, of Hagers town. Is to perform tho autopsy, wired State's Attorney Wolflnger shortly be fore noon that he had missed his train, and would not be ablo to get here bo fore tomorrow. Tho State's attorney said that If thf defense wished another postponement of the hearing he would not object, and McCleary would simply be rommltteo. for another three days. McCleary j attorne8 have arranged to have a phy sician present at the autopsy toinororw. Mr. Wolflnger said today that no ver batim copy of the confession would be made punllc until tho oaso is called for trial In November. "When the proper time comee," he said, "the confession will bo Intro duced as evidence. In tho mcani.mo I will keep it locked In my safo and no one will to permitted to sec It." Verbal Statement Only. Mr. Wolflnger said that the only tes timony regarding a confession that the State would offer at tho preliminary hearing would be the verbal statements which McCleary had made. Ho said ho believed there was enough evidence against the prisoner to hold him for the grand pury without introducing tho signed confession. This confession, which consists of about five typewritten pages, contains admission of the actual killing of Mrs. Henry, the State's attorney said. The State will make a strong fight against the Introduction of any evidence tend ing to Bhow that McCleary Is of un sound mind, physicians, who havo ex amined him for the prosecution, report ing that he is simply feigning insanity. McCleary's lawyers, Wagaman and Wagaman, have complained that the of ficers at the Jail had refused to permit a physician representing McCleary to see the prisoner. They are making every effort to have a physician examine him to determine his mental condition. It Is reported here that William G. Henry, nusDana ot tne muraereu wo man, who has been missing for the last twenty years, was in the cltv and had been talking with old acquaint ances. This was denied by relatives. Miss Henry, with whom McCleary was Infatuated, and who It Is claimed he In tended to kill In Washington If she re fused to marry htm, is Btlll at the home of her uncle. , If tho confession which tho State claims It has obtained from McCleary is the coirect version of the manner 1 nwhlcji Mrs. Henry was killed, the murder was one of the most cold blooded that haB ever occurred In this section of the State, attorneys say. Took Meals There. McCleary, it was learned today, had been taking his meals at the Henry home for about a week before he killed Mrs. Henry. lie had been driven from home. It Is said, because of various escapades In which he had been Involved, and engaged a room In a lodging house and at at Mrs. Henry's. Becauso his confession bears out every detull of the State's theory In tho case, McCleary's attorneys say they will make ovcry effort to repud iate it and endeavor to show that tho confession was obtniried by doerclon, and that McCleary, a nervous and mental wreck, a.-rreed to everythlnk tho officers asked him.

ICMTo ol T OF "PLANTING" PLOT Mill Operators May Have To Answer Conspiracy Charge. BOSTON, Aug. 2). The first of tho in dictments against mill operators of this city, who arc alleged to have sent dyna mite to bo plantod In Lawrence during the recent textile strike there in order to check the growth of unionism, and especially of tho Industrial Workers of tho World, in Now England, were hand ed up to Justice Pratt in the superior court hero today. They were sealed, but it was asserted that at least three of the Wst known mill men In this section were Involved. District Attorney I'cllptier, who forced the Indictments, declared that there might be others If tho connection between the mon indicted today and others "higher up" could be established. Ono Indictment returned contained the name of a single individual and the ether was a bllnket presentment sup poFedly against three men. Pellctler said today that he intended pushing the prosecution of everyone In volved In tho conspiracy. He socured the first Intimation of the extent of the plot through his Interrogation, plot through his Interrogation of Ernest A. Pitman, tho Andover mill, contractor who committed suicide rather than tell all he knew about the plot to the grand Jury. According to John W. Pitman, father of the suicide, young Pitman told of the Plot Inadvertently after John J. Brecn, member of the Lawrence School Board, had paid a fine of $500 for plant In gtho dynamite. Pitman had thought this ended the matter but Pelletler thought otherwise and forced Pitman to tell all ho knew. Although the contrac tor killed himself the district attorney wa sable to force others, Including Breen, to appear before the grand Jury and -it was from the story they told that today's indictments resulted. Pelltier Insisted this afternoon that the whole story of tho conspiracy will be developed by him In open court. Meanwhile the followers of the Jailed strike leaders, Ettor and Glovannlttl, held on a murder charge because a wo man striker was killed during a riot In Lawrence while the strike was in progress were planning today to take advantage of the present development to aid their men. It has been alleged by attorneys for the Jailed strike leaders that the mill owners were in a conspiracy to "rail road'' the pair to the electric chair and It was hoped that the complete unfurl ing of the "dynamite plot" would arouse sentiment that would aid the accused.
