SEES POLITICAL TRICK
It May Be Effort to Deprive Him
of Valuable Service in
Washington. January 83.?Twice yester
iluj President Ta-ft denied emphatical?
ly to White House callers that ho
placed any credence In reports that
Postmaster-General Hitchcock had
been politically active to prevent his
rcuomlnatlon. Once at least the Presi?
dent denied that Cabinet oltlcors had
urged hint to oust the Postmastcr
Geueral front his official family bo
eause of alleged antl-Taft activity and
I visitors, who talked With the Presi?
dent gained the impression ihut he
had not the slightest doubt ot Mr.
Hitchcock's loyalty. The President
: was reported to-night to have said
i that if his PostmuBter-Gunorul wrc
prove I disloyal he would he "the most
badly fooled man In tnc country." He
I was willing that his attitude toward
I Mr. Hitchcock be i.iado public.
i Some of the President's advlserq
were Inclined to the view that
a concerted effort wus being niKde
to foree an open breuk between Mr.
Taft and Mr. Hitchcock, tvo that the
lattor'H survlces and Iiis polltlcul ad?
vice might be removed from the Taft
It became known that many
of the President's close friends hold
the same view that ho holds as to Mr.
It'a l.'fi to Harne?.
William Kirne-, Jr., chairman ot the
Republican State Committee of New
York, muBt come out for Taft, or ho
will flud the hottest tight against him
that he ever knew In his life.
That 1b the ultimatum the Taft lead
ors In Now York nre going to give Mr.
Bnrnes within a short time. The ulll
mutura la going to be so straght that
Mr. Burnos cannot misunderstand Its
Mr. Barnes's attitude, toward an un
instructcd delegation from New York
Its getting on the nerves of the Tatt
i men, and they have duulured they win
, not permll thu Albany bosu to huvo his
way. Their pogram is an simple as
It can be, unless it la changed. They
will notify Mr. Barnes what to expect
when the State convention meeta lf
he attempts to continue Ids indirect
opposition to the President
If he has not come out for Taft by
that time or has not agreed to an U>
j structed dolegation, they will force the
issue In the convention. They will try
I to have the delegation Instructed, and
then they will enrry the light agalnat
1 Mr. Barnes himself, ho far as the chair?
manship Is concerned. They will de?
prive him of the chairmanship, if that
Tuft C-onnaclH Harmony.
President Taft has been consulted
about the situation. He conferred Sat?
urday In New Haven with New York
men, who have told him that Mr.
Barnes Is muddying the situation tn
i New York by holding aloof from In?
structed Taft delcgulcg. It is not
known what view the Pr?sident took
of tho matter. His general attitude is
one of slowness and deliberation in a.
(inestlon at this time. Ho dislikes to
give orders to make a light on u man,
whothor that man Is against him or
not. He prefors harmony.
But it win make no difference what
the President advises, so far as his
close friends In New York are con?
cerned. They are going to insist that
Mr. Barnes go on record, and do so a"s
promptly as ho can conveniently do it.
When the Stale convention meets prac
ticully every delegato from Greater
New York, with a number from up the
State who oro In sympathy with the
movement, will be prepared to put tho
Issue tight up to Mr. Barnes and settle
it by a tight in the convention.
The Taft leaders cannot se-i any
good reason why Mr. Barnes .should
act as bo is acting. They charge here
that ho dislikes Mr. Taft because tho
latter "burned" him on several occas?
ions; ho Im against Roosevelt, whom he
cordially dislikes; lie Is opposed to I.u
Follottc and all that the Wisconsin
man Stands for. Ho is believed to be
trying to force a delegation for Asso?
ciate Justice Hughes, of the Supremr
Court. He dislikes Hughes, too, but
his dislike of lilm is lees than it la

want* a "Roust" I'lntforni.
Mr. Barnes Is also accused of a boss's
desire to force the Slate convention to
adopt a platform and compel Mr. Taft
to ratify that platform, which Is ex?
pected to be u rodhot roaat of every?
thing that Is progressive In the Reptib.
Ucan parly. If Mr. Taft were to ac?
cept this platform lie wo? J lose all
chances of eleotlon in tho Middle WcbI.
If ho accepted it at tho dictation of
Mr. Harnes the Albany man would go
higher with certain regulars ir. New
York as it real boss. But tho Tuft
leaders do not propose to permit Mr.
Barnes to build a platform anil then
place Mr. Taft or any other man he
may want on it.
The best politicians here from New
York say the State is tor Taft, regard?
less of Mr. Barnes. They are iroing to
carry it for thu President, aided by
i Barnes or opposed by him. ius'. as Mr.
i TafI sees fit.
