"Theodor?; Roosevelt's recent edito?
rial In tho Outlook upon the truut
quetstlnn has led to deductions no false
end to political discussions so Uli
lortunato that It jieeuis expedient for
an accurate and uulhorltatlve atate
in?nt to be runde regarding his posi?
tion, particularly toward the campaign
of 1912- Such u .statement can be
made better perhaps by the North
American than by nny other agency.
"Junt one year ago Colonel Roose?
velt confided to this newspaper his
vicwa touching the ufg of his name
as a rrceptlve candidate for the Re?
publican nomination, and his firm pur?
pose In relation thereto. Thee were
Btnple reasons for his expressions'.
Kver since his return from abroad
there had been a growth In public In?
terest regarding bin altitude toward
the President. At that time Influential
Kastcrn pupers were proclaiming that
Colonel Roosevelt was actually pledged
to support Mr. Taft for renotnlnation.
and were Intimating that news of this
arrangement emanated from the While
Mouse. Itself. Many national leaders
accepted these statements as facts, in?
dorsement, of the Taft administration
lit the New Vork Republican platform
was hailed as proof that Rooaevclt was
- committed to the Taft candidacy.
Dl-i'i'-ci of Humor*,
"?if wa? this assertion which rvdon'"!
Roosevelt dlnpofed of In his confidence
to the North American: and. an sug?
gestions of his own candidacy natural?
ly followed, ho dlspoacd of them also.
"He declared mod emphatically iluct
lie had not pledged his support to Mr.
Taft, privately or publicly. In ttel
terms, or even by Implication, rte
clared he would not support any man
for the nomination In 1P12. either Mr.
Tuft or any otic else. An to a state?
ment that Hi" President believed he
wquld have Kooscve! t'.i support, CM
onel Roosevelt said that Mr. Tuft could
not possibly bellcvo anything of the
kind; that In fact ?Mr. Taft, knew ih it
he had no such assurance, and Hut
neither Mr. Taft nor any ono else had
one particle pf ground for such opinion.
"As to the persistent suggestions
that ho had designs upon tho nomi?
nation himself. Colonel Roosevelt was
equally .emphatic and explicit. At
that time and on subsequent occasions,
more Ujan onco In our presence, Col?
onel RooBOVolt received tenders of"
support from men of wide political
intlucnco who will control delegates
In the ?convention. Koine of those men
were Progressives, others were "Near"
T'rogrcssKa, several were. of reac?
tionary sympathies. To each and
every t.ur.h proposal t.'olonH Roosevelt
"replied substantially n? stated above,
and added with equal emphasis nnd
forceful sincerity that he was not in
the remotest sense a candidate for the
nomination, and that ho declined and
deplored all suggestions as were be?
ing mado to him.
"He went further. To tboso who had
had close relations with him he said
1n effect: 'If you are a true friend of
mine you will drop this . once and for
all; you will not only quit It yourself,
but you will discourage your friends
and do all you ran to atop this futile
fallt. You will believo whnt T have
said so often, that I am not a can?
didate and earnestly desire that ail
uuch suggestions should ceaso."
Snys It Many Times,
"Colonel Roosevelt said substantial?
ly this net onco, but many times, am!,
as ntated, on several occasions In our
presence.
"By sheer persistence ho Buccccdod
in quelling the unfortunate activity
of those who for one reason or an?
other were trying to make, him a
prominent figure In the 191. discus?
sion. Bui it few days ago tho talk
was revived In a new and curious way.
Last ,week wo found Colonel Roosevelt
greatly amused and perhaps a llttlo
puzzled by the commotion stirred up
over bis article In the Outlook. He.
had reason to he astonished, first, that
/.lore reiteration of his views us ex?
pressed in many messages and
speeches, to be execrated by big busi?
ness should now be accepted as a way
of deliverance from troubles ho had
predicted and tried to provide against;
second, that men who would not, un?
derstand him before now look his
.words at their true meaning?not be
cnuse of any admiration of him, but
because of disgust with tho course of
l'residont Taft, and third, thai his re?
petition of his well known views,
with not a single new nuggestloii or
wavering fronj his fornior position,
rhould revive discussion of his own
candidacy and be regarded us a sub
Mo bid for the support of big bust;
ue'sD In that suppositions ambition.
"Those who have been In close,
touch with Colonel Roosevelt since the
publication of hl3 article have like?
wise been surprised, not- only at the
extent of tho 'sentiment for him, but
at Its manifestation In circles that a
few months ago wore bitterly hostile
to Rooaevclt, or at least strongly p^o
Taft.

New York. November 26?The diffi?
culty of getting word by wireless from |
the Prinz Joachim to steamers In the
vicinity when the Prinz Joachim went
ashore In the Bahamas hist Wednes?
day, has led William Jennings Bryan,
a. phHKCUgvr, PJ' the yteamci,. to suggest.,
legislation requiring the assignment
of two wireless telegraph operators to
each steamship nl sea. Mr. Bryan's
Ideas on this point arc contained In a
wireless message received to-day he
i fore the steamer yigllancla reached
Port Antonio. No ship answered the
Prinz Joachim's calls for several hour3
after she struck, Mr. Bryan save, be?
cause ships in that section carry but
one operator, who assumedly canyot
always be oil hand to catch calls for
h?lp.
' Mr. Bryan in his dispatch describes
Interestingly incidents of the wreck,
and the difficult transfer of the pass?
engers, and tells also of the rescue of
a number of the Joachim's sailors who
hud falle,) to get back to the steamer
after the passengers had been safely
cared for. The dispatch follows:
"On Board the Steamer yigllancla at
Sea. November 25 (by wireless, via
T.impa. Via., November 26).?Our ship
Prinz Joachim wont ashore on n coral
reef at Atwood Cay nt H:!". o'clock
Wednesday morning. Fortunately the
vessel was nlmost upright, and the
passengers were assured that there
was' no Immediate danger. Captain
Fey mado all necessary arrangements
for talcing the passengers off in life?
boats, and used the wireless constant?
ly in search of relief. Th station at
42 Broadway. New York City, and six
other land stations responded, but no
ship answered for sovcral hours, ow?
ing to the fact that ships in this sec?
tion carry but one operator, and In
consequenco there are often times
when danger signals cannot be heard.
This should be remedied by legislation
requiring two wireless operators on
each ship.
"Captain Jones arr'ved w'lh his
steamer Suguranca about ".' o'clock,
and the passengers wore transferred
before 5. The transfer was across sev
oral miles of rough sen In open boats
and full of exciting Incidents. Tho

Nanking, November 27, I A. M.?
After more than half a century of
silence the hills overlooking the walled
city of Nanking, the ancient capital of
China, swarm with rebellious forces
eager for Its occupation, and determin?
ed to take the stronghold where the
Mauchus are making their last stand
south of the Yang-Tse.
From the Tiger Hill fort for sev?
eral hours Sunday morning, big gum
spoke repeatedly, while further up,
along the northeastern range from
the lop of Purple Mountain, overlook?
ing the Ming Tombs, for a fifteen
mile seinl-circle, westward to the.
Yang-Tse, smaller forts scattcrd
shells Into every section of tho city.
So far as Is known the casualty list
Is not large. General Wong, second in
command of the defenders, Is among
those killed.
During the earlier part of the day
the Imperialists attempted a sortie
against the attacking forces, with a
view to recapturing their positions and
guns, but were driven back inside the
walls with considerable losses. The. |
Tiger Hill batteries, meanwhile, were
pounding shells Into I .Ion 11 til. They
succeeded In silencing the batteries
there, which. It is suspected, were
of little value.
The object of the first seizure of !
Tiger Hill was shown by the early
appearance of four cruisers, and later
In the day of other warships. In
the evening a dozen torpedo boat de?
stroyers and cruisers wer?! lying me?
nacingly near the city. Doubtless
they will quickly reduce the lower soc
t lull and drive the defenders to the
south.
The viceroy of Nunking and the Tar?
tar, Hum I ill, III fe?r- ol -l.ieiierai Chung,
the imperial commander, have taken

which only the consul remains. He is
the sole oflicla] representative of for?
eign Interests now III Nanking. The
consulate Is well guarded by "marines.
Sunday's attack can only be con?
sidered a slight foretaste of bigger
things to follow, because the. main
body .of the revolutionaries Is steadily
investing every side and bringing the
big guns Into position on every emi?
nence. The plans of the attacking
force arc not revealed. The rr.voln
tinnarlos may not attempt to rush the
city, but may prefer to bombard
steadily an<l await Its surrender, nut
If breaches are made In the walls cf
the city und tiio rebels enter. It |s
believed that General Chang and the
loyal troops will make a desperate
stand.

cautions were relaxed.

GRAVE GUARDED
DURING NIGHT
Bcattic Section Protected'Against
Crush. Though Crowd Was
Drawn There by Morbid
Curiosity?Police Estimate
Is 15,000, Mostly
Women.
More than 10,000 people, mostly wo
man, swarmed Into Maury Cemetery j
yesterday afternoon to look upon tho
grave of Henry Clay Reattle. .Ir. They
eame from nil sides. Street ear ser?
vice, wnn congested to the point where ]
It was necessary to operate extra cars
on the Routhsldo division, while horse,
and motor vehicles added to the lam.
The wise policy on the part of tho
family In holding tho funeral ahortly
after sunrise was clearly demon?
strated when the mass of humanity
reached the cemetery gates.
Driven Away from tirnrr.
While there was no disorder, Captain
Wright, of the Third l'olice Precinct,
acting under Instructions from Major
Werner, had an extra detnll of men
about the grave, two of whom were
i mounted. Double ropes were stretched
about the Boatllo section, and the more
morbidly curious who tried to push1
their way In closer were driven bnck.
For hours the crowds kept moving.
The whole plaeo was HI led, but after
glancing at the mound of (lowers the
multitude went away, apparently sntls
! fled. There was no disorder, but there
might, have been except for the ptca
enco of police officers. ^ 1
The police estimated tho crowd at
15,000, although It was hardly as big
hh that. The crowd. however, was
greater than the entire population of
South Richmond.
Guard on Duty n< .\lgh(.
When the cemetery was practically
cleared at dusk, the police wore with
; drawn, but the keeper detailed nn
(extra guard around the grave, and ni
I lent watch was kept throughout the
I night. Without police help in the af?
ternoon It Is said that every blossom
and every bud would have been
stripped from the murderer's grave.
The exact hour of the funeral was
printed In The Tlincs-Dlspatch yestor
1 duly, and the ceremonies wero over
j before the town was astir. Heilig un?
able therefore, to attend, the morbid
1 element waited for the afternoon and
i then flocked to the cemetery, on
I curiosity bent. Hundreds came over
j from Petersburg on the electric, cars,
but Richmond furnished the grentent
number. The one bridge over the river
shook with Its weight of humanity.
No Show of Sympathy.
Silent, for tho most part, the crowds
were more Intent upon 11 glimpse of
tho place where Heat tie slept. There
was no show of sympathy. Hut had
the funeral boeu advertised for tho af?
ternoon. It could not have been held?
! so great was tho crush.
Although it waa expected earlier
in tho day that tho cemetery would
bo the one point toward which pop?
ple moved, there was no thought or
idea in advance that a multitude would
swarm there. Tho exhibition was so
unlike anything ever seen In this town
before that it amis deplored?deplored
even by some of those who were eager
to he near. Tho police had ? instruc
j tlona lo show 110 mercy to those who j
I failed to show respect to tho dead, and
I they were prepared to arrest anybody |
the least inclined to be disorderly by
act or speech. It wnn feared that the
grave might be stripped of Iis flowers,
the gift of inen and women whose
1 hearts ached for that grlof-atrlckcn
father who stood by his boy to the
end.
Then Into I'orter Slrcct.
Rul not satisfied with the visit to
j the cemetery, hundreds camo through
I Porter Street, simply to look upon the
I houao In which Henry Ucattio had
I lived. They saw blinds that wero
? drawn and it porch that was empty. ?
As is always tho cane, there wero
jjnany wild and sensational reports ill
1 circulation, but without exception they
j were as baseless as they wero cruel,
j Henry Peatlie was given a funeral as
J decent as If ho had died In his own
home, und the grief of his people wan
, all the more, poignant when they heard
of ihe mobs that swarmed about bis
grave.

Whllo the sun was yol low In th? fac

own beloved about tlto grave, they la'd
him to rest at 7:30 o'clock yesterday
morning:. Frost lay upon Iho ground,
and there wus n biting chill hi the air.
Stark, gaunt trees held up their leafless
branches In Maury Cemetery, where
Hie. boy now sleeps, and along tho sad
driveway the grass had turned Into Its
autumnal sheen.
Above, a few clouds, reddening in the
dawn, Streaked tho sky, and here and
there a few birds twittered mournfully
from tho boughs. Tho morning wus
bright and clear, nnd except for tho
fow who hud come to mourn und pay
their last respects to tho 'lead, thero
wiih no hint of sorrow In the dawning
day.
Brief Service at Home.
It had been planned to lay Henry
Beat tie to vest at 7 o'clock. It was
halt .in hour later when the. lust sad
tiles were performed and the body set?
tled into \\tc bosom of eternal night.
'the pafi-bcarVrs and it. ' few near
friends gathered In the Bcattto home
I shortly after ? o'clock. Uey, .lohn .1.
?Fix, who* had accompanied the boy and.
consoled htm during his lust days uu
earth, road the short funeral service,
of the faith In which Henry had sought
his last refuge. About tho cuskYt
stood the gray-haired father, tho faith?
ful brother, the young sister, the. two
aunts who had never forgotten Ihn
erring youth, and some of the friends
I of his boyhood.
The short services over, the collln
wits placed In a hearse, and slowly tlio
Cortege moved to Maury Cemetery. A
few women of tho neighborhood, Keep?
er .lottos and two police officers In plain
clothes were waiting.
Tho hearse stopped opposite tho
Beattie section, and the seven curtiugcs
containing tho family and pall-bearers
halted on either side. A light wagon,
loaded down with flowers, had preceded.
Trnimfcrrnl to Grave.
iL was but the work of a moment to
transfer ihu casket to tho open grave.
At Its fool stood tho Immediate mem?
bers or the dead hoy's family. All
heads bowed as Mr. Fix bent his brow
ami prayed over the body from which
tho soul had lied. His face haggard,
drawn and deeply lined with the fur?
rows of unutterable sorrow, tho father
clutched his daughtor tightly by l.hci
arm and remained still, with his eyes
fixed iipon tho grave. At th"e right,
stootl the two aunts. On tho left stood
the brother.
Relieved of I heir burden, tho pall?
bearers stood on the east side of tho
grave. Several of them?those Wliri
had been lifelong friends of tho dead
youth?wept openly. One among thoni
was ho who had sacrificed his nit Ii>
save his friend, ho who hod blnckeife.i?
his own character to spare stlgmu from
the other's name.
Tears I" Preacher's Kyes.
Though his voice was steady, MtV
Flic could not keep back tho tears. Iln
had frequent recourse to his handker?
chief.
In the solemn stillness of the morn?
ing. Interrupted only by an 'unsiip
presscd sob hero nnd there, tho min?
ister of God repented the sacred words,
of burial. Ills lips clenched tightly
and with his arm clasped close to the
girt by his side, tho aged father list?
ened to tho comforting words suio*
above his son. Grim, unutterable grief
was there, and about that never-lo
bo-forgotten picture of woo tho cutv?
tain must bo drawn.
No eye was dry aa tho coflln was low?
ered Into the pit. 11 was un exact
duplicate, sliver braided, of that in
which his wife had been laid to her
eternal rest. They sleep 'Sldq by.side.
At tho head of the young wife's graVM
stands a granite memorial to hor hus?
band's mother. There, is as yet n<<
memorial to her name. At. the hchVT
of the other grave uro erected memo?
rial stonoa to a twin sister and brother
of Henry Beattie. On tho coflln wert
inscribed Iho words. In a silver plulo,
"Henry Clay Beattie, Jr., twenty-seven
years of age." Tho handles wero t>(
old silver.
MnsscN of Flowers.
Flowers wore massed above bulb
graves. Chrysanthemums, pink and
white roses and autumnal leaves wero
strewn lavishly above the two mounds.
At the foot and joining botlt was
placed an arch built on two pillars of
pink roses and crowned with rogei? of
white. Woven among ? purple Immor?
telle:! were Inscribed the words, "United
Beyond tho River." Thus in their eter?
nal sloop the young man and woman
wero united again by the unfailing
love of their frimds. Only a foot of
sod separaten them now. Near tho boy
sleeps his mother. And near Is a place
for him who shall follow next.
