Washington, Oct. ?.President
Roosevelt has heard reports from na
tional committee headquarters, through
a personal representative who went to
New York to look Into the situation,
and who came back and personally
submitted his discoveries to the presi
dent yesterday. Later the general sit
uation was discussed around the cabi
net table. The emissary of the presi
dent was Secretary of State Elihu
If the president were to seek the
world over for a man to do a job
thoroughly, make no fuss about it, and
come back with precisely what he went
after, he could not select a better man
than the secretary of state. As a re

unless he voluntarily changes the plans
he had mapped out for the next three

For weeks President Roosevelt has

the campaign and meet the legitimate
According to information brought to
the president, Chairman Hitchcock
had been making his plans to open a
widespread, energetic campaign late in
September and keep things whirling
until election day. This plan was In
accord with the president's Idea, and it
not having been carried out, the presi

Secretary Root la credited with hav
discovered that "gint, r" is lacking
for the very good reason that funds
with which to supply that excellent
stimulant have not been

c-iinmittee. The blame for this condi
ti"n is undeservely placed upon the
shoulders of George R. Sheldon, the
tr.-asurer of the committee, who was
that important position in the
party organization on the recommend
ation of Cornelius N. Bliss, former
treasurer of the national committee,
arui whose assistant Mr. Sheldon was.
Not a Success.
To put it bluntly, the president has
been told that Mr. Sheldon has failed
t" "make good" as treasurer, and has
been successful In collecting the
ni ney with which to run things. Of
course, the attitude of Judge Taft and
i'rosident Roosevelt in debarring cor
porations from contributing to the re
publican fund, have made the filling of
thf campaign money chest a thing of.
Hifticulty. The usual sources whence
th republicans were accustomed to
obtain funds were closed to Sheldon at
the outset, and he seems, according to
reports, to havo failed to start the
money flowing from other sources.

Whether this is due to want of ac
tivity or lack of business skill re
mains to be seen, tut it was told here
In Washington several days ago that a
prominent gentleman from Philadel
phia went to Ntew York for the purpose
of contributing a goodly sized check to
the campaign fund and spent an entire
day endeavoring to find some one au
thorized to receive it. In previous
campaigns, it is pointed out, there
have been associate treasurers in all
the large cities, making it their per
sonal business to go out after sup
posed contributors. Nothing of the
kind seems to be the fashion under the
present administration of the national
committee. The story travels into
Washington from Pittsburg that a
wealthy and patriotic republican there
was able to divest himself of a fat con
tribution only after the most laborious
correspondence, and then only through
the personal assistance of a member of
the committee, whom he happened to
meet on the train one day traveling
through Pennsylvania on his way to
New York.

The time for anything like a popular
subscription is too short, and evert If
undertaken would subject the party to
unfavorable criticism, for republican
speakers everywhere have heaped ridi
cule upon the democratic policy of
"passing the hat."
The position of Treasurer Sheldon is
unenviable as he Is damned by the
democrats for being a corporation man
and holding up the corporations for
money, and will be damned by the re
publicans for, although being a corpor
ation man, not bringing in funds. All
of which harks back to the original
proposition that there can be no "gin

Mack Flays Treasurer.
Mr. Sheldon was yesterday put upon
the griddle by Chairman Mack, of the
democratic committee, because of his
association with the big corporations
and trusts. Mr. Mack gave out a list
of combines in which the republican
national treasurer either is a respon
sible director or official. The repub
lican managers, even if thoroughly dis
satisfied with Mr. Sheldon's manage
ment of the fiscal affairs of the com
mittee, can hardly let him out while
under fire. That would be equivalent
to an admission that the democratic
criticism was well founded, and that
he was removed as a result of demo
cratic strictures.
Just what to do In the circumstances
is a query republican leaders for the
moment are unable to answer satis
factorily. Money they must have. It
is said Mr. Hitchcock has been de
voting his energies to a solution of
this problem not only by decreasing
the expenditures of the committee
wherever possib'e, but in devising
some scheme that may force good,
clean, untainted republican money in
to the treasury of the national com

Danger in Personalities.
Former Senator Dietrich of Nebras
ka talked rather plainly to the presi
dent yesterday, and suggested that If
personalities were not stopped the
people would become disheartened and
might do anything when election day
came around. When the senator was
asked if his advice applied to the
president or had reference to the re
cent literary combat between the
president and Mr. Bryan, Mr. Dietrich
said it could be applied to anybody
indulging in that sort of politics.
He admitted he told the president
he thought it would be much better
to tell the people of the good quali
ties of Judge Taft rather than to at
tempt to show up the bad qualities of
his opponent. Senator Dietrich de
clared Taft was sure to oarry Nebras
ka. Then he hedged by saying, "I do
not believe the people are so deep set
In their vlws, however, that they nould
not quickly undergo a change if things
went wrong, but right now the big
majority in our state is for Taft."
Representative Burton reassured the
president as to Delaware. That state,
he said, in proportion to the vote
cast, was as strongly republican as
any other eastern republican state,
and he declared no uneasiness need be
felt as to how Delaware s three elec
toral votes would be cast.
