ant <.f Hearat, called to aea Roosevelt
at the outlook office this aft? rnoon.
He came at the latler's re.piest, but
beyond admitting the fact Roosevek
refused to diseuss the visit. He --efused
to be explained if he sent for Graves to
acceptthe Hearat offerof the support
of his independent party.
Oravcs and tho colonel were closed
in the latter- private office for aOBM
time. When the candidate of Ibe
independence party for viee-presideiit
in the last national campaign departed
hewas smiliug broadly. He was far
from being Iquadous, however. ' All
I care to say is that all of the politices

political aubject under discussion.
