Jesse R. Grant, Son of General,
May Be Democratic Nominee
Friends Boom Him
as a Logical %
WASHINGTON. Sept. Jt— Jesse R.
Grant, the third son of General U. S.
Craut, has sprung: into prominence sud
denly as a possible candidate for the
democratic nomination for president of
the United States. For some weeks his
availability as a reorganizer andjeader
of the different factions of the national
democracy has been whispered about
funongr the knowing: ones in New York
city and elsewhere. After giving: the
matter full and careful consideration,
and with a due appreciation of the re
pponsibilitles entailed. Grant - is not
only in' a willing- frame of mind, but
\u25a0with the frankness, sincerity and de
termination characteristic of his
father, has at last reached his decision
to come out openly and make a bold
attempt to win the prize In free compe
tition with all comers. His friends are
rallying- behind him, end the more they
*tudy conditions, the greater becomes
their enthusiasm, as they feel more and
more that their candidate has good
chances of success.
The political logic of the Grant boom
ers Is as follows: The democratic party
Js strong, vigorous and vlril« In many
states throußhout the country and in
most of the large cities. The national
organization, however. Is divided so
seriously that as soon an either faction
pairs control many of the extremists
of the other side are forced into the
republican camp. Consequently, the
man who Is to lead the entire party to
the polls must be one whose character,
ability and democracy are so unques
tioned as to command the confidence
•md loyalty of all factions, and yet one
whose previous record is not so closely
r>.FSOciated with either wing- of the
party. 6O as to make him objectionable
to the other faction, which latter
requisite virtually excludes all who are
ni present prominent leaders in the
Ervan l&-*ti!l the idol of his faction
of the partj*. but even though reluct
antly they feel that two defeats are
such a serious handicap that it should
rot be imposed upon the leader of the
party. They would welcome a chance
tp follow some other standard bearer,
'jut their loyalty to their former leader
<irraands that the new chief must come
from the ranks of the faithful of 1596
and 1900. The conservatives, on the
other hand, have also a strong predi-
Vction for one of their own stamp, but
owing to their experience in the last
presidential campaign, they are not in
a dictatorial frame of mind- Unlike the
radicals their principles are not em
bodied in or grouped around any strong
personality: but they, too, would in
rlst that the nevr leader be one who
tvas loyal In 190*. The third division
of the party, known a« the solid south,
in wliieh the radical and conservative
division is less pronounced, demands a
Jradcr wlio always has been a true
democrat and friendly to the southern
section of the country.
The west, the home of the great
n;ass of independent voters, must also
>;»• carefully considered. The voters of
this section ar« exacting in their de
mand for a man wnop» personality ap
peals to them. ' President Roosevelt's
rfcorrt as a' rancliman, cowboy and
rougji rider aroused enthusiasm in
t!ic ".-rs'. and it was* from thl* section
oftlie country that fa large part of his
phenomenal vote came.
Grant meets these conditions. Al
though not an ultraradical he supported
T^ryan during both ills campaigns. Al
though rot a pronounced conservative.
lie was faithful to Judge Parker in
J904. The name of Grant would call
forth an enthusiasm in the north which
•v culd draw from the republican party
votes which no other democrat could
pet. As a lifelong democrat who Joined
the party of his own free will and from
farnest convictions, despite the fact
that at the time his father was the
rrpublican president of the country.
Grant would be acceptable to the
southern %-oters who in their chlvalric
ppirit would be willing to meet ' him
half way In an effort to heal forever
the last trace of sectional feeling by
r'edging their support to the son of
Tree's conqueror; the son who was born
5n the south, and \u25a0wfio. while his father
was in the White House, had the cour
age and fairness to join the political
party which favored the south.
As a practical and successful miner
who has tolled with pick and shovel he
would be popular in the west. Grant Is
•well known in the west, because It was
here that he spent the greater part
of his early manhood. Grant believes
in tariff revision, but he is not a free
trade theorist. He believes, further
more, that the tariff should not be
tl«kered with constantly, but should be
changed schedule by schedule to meet
changing conditions and to aVcid the
anomaly of American goods being cold
cheaper abroad than at home.
Jesse Grant was born on the Old
Dent farm. In "White Haven, near St.
Louie, Mo., February €, 1858. When
only 8 years old h« wa* taken to the
front by his mother, who accompanied
General Grant during the most trying
period of the war. His early education
•was obtained at Young's school In
Washington. D. C, and In a boarding
school at Cheltenham, near Philadel
phia. For three years, from 1874 to
1677, he studied civil engineering- at
Cornell university. In 1879 he attended
the Columbia law school In New York
city, and at the same time he pursued
some special studies in mining. While
his father •was in the White House
young Grant spent most of his spare
time traveling. In 1878 he went with
his brother Fred on a buffalo hunt in
Indian territory and in Panhandle,
Texas. He has always been an enthu
siastic fisherman, and next to baseball
and riding this Is his favorite amuse
In the summer of 1878 he left the law
school and went to Leadville, Colo.,
where he first began to earn his own
livelihood working: ac a sampler Jnthe
office of the Little Plttsburgr mining
company at a salary of^2.a day. His
desire to earn his own" living was what
led him to adopt mining as a career,
and alter a short time in L<eadvi!le h«
went to Arizona, where he soon "struck
it rich." He has worked as a prac
tical miner and has been otherwise in
terested in mining propositions in Colo
rado, California, Arizona. Alaska and
Mexico. In 1900 he moved to New York
city, where h» has lived since.
Unlike 'his father and his eldest
brother, he was never much Interested
In military affairs, except from an his
torical standpoint. During the war
with Spain be was working & " mine in
Mexico. Histories, poetry and scien
tific works axe his favorite books. He
!s an expert mathematician. Grant >Is
a French and Spanish scholar and reads
German well. ig§Ss
Although always much interested in
politics and a * good party man. Grant
has never run for, political: office. :. He
voted for Bryan . twice and for , Judge
Parker once. The. men who best rep
resent his ideals In American, history
are Benjamin Franklin, Lincoln and his
own father. 'He _ is a member of ) the

Rioting in Sacramento Street,
Near Maple, Is Devoid
of Bloodshed
Shots were fired, bricks thrown and
one of the United Railroads cars badly
smashed up in a riot at Sacramento
and Maple streets at 1 o'clock this
morning. The result of the riot was
the arrest of Motorman James Garrity
and Conductor James Rowland. The
former is charged with the carrying
of concealed weapons, the iatter with
the discharging of firearms within the
City limits. Among the rioters two
leaders, W. \u25a0 Mulverhill and Walter
Sweetman, both plasterers by trade,
were arrested, charged with assault and
disturbing the peace.
It seems that a large crowd sur
rounded the car as it was passing the
Sacrament? street barns.
The beginning of the fracas was sig
nalized by a shower of' bricks and
stones. Then came the firing. Police
man A. J. Johnson appeared on the
scene, and/ assisted by four other, pa
trolmen, checked the rioting and ar
rested the above named participants.

Prominent Chieftains Say
That Meeting Will Be
of Much Benefit
Special by Leased Wire to The Call
NEW YORK. Sept.: 7.— That the na
tional congress on: trusts and combina
tions, which is to^be held in Chicago
in October, will; create unusual inter
est already ia apparent.: Scores^ of let
ters ; from men prominent in the vari
ous pursuits have^beeni received by the"
national civic federation, under whose
auspices the ''conference Is ;to be held.
A lmost . without exception" the ' expres
sions of the writers are highly com
mendatory and the - opinion that \u25a0 great
good will result from "•! the exchange
ofxideas appears to be general: Among
those who have written, in": this vein
are the Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott," editor
of the Outlook;.'' Samuel Gompers,'presi
dent of the American federation •: of
labor; Richard Watson .Gilder, editor
of the Century: "John Mitchell, ; presi
dent of the united i mine /.workers .of
America; Judge Peter G. Grosscup Vof
Chicago; Bishop H. C. Potter; Charles G.
Dawes, the Chicago banker;' John M.
Stahl. president of? the farmers'.'.na
tional congress, , and- Nahum J. Bach
elder, grand master of the * national
grange. ,
Dr. Abbott in his letter voices !the
sentiment which runs through \u25a0 all the
communication 1 when he; says : ; ' This is
a time when we need light,- not heat."
Nearly all the writers believe that the
greatest good will come from the .wide
publicity which will be given the trust
question as a result of open discussion
by the leaders of thought who: will
take part *n the conference. "It seems
to me fundamentally true,'.' writes Dr.
Abbott, "that the interests -of the rail
roads, the shippers and the general
public are essentlahy one,"^and that
it is of the utmost, importance that
men representing all these classes
should get together, compare views an,d
endeavor to come to some agreement
as to the general principles by which
these common interests! could be
best served." Gilder, believes that; "this
talk will help to bring calmness and
coolness to the publia mind, :: . and
heaven knows ,it needs ;.them." Judge
Grosscup* says that It is full time that
the corporations "winch have grown
up as developments of our business life
without much reference to their rela
tion to the people as institutions v. ot
and for •\u25a0 the people be looked
as Institutions: of and for .the. people.'!
Bishop Potter . believes that, b:
"bringing the whole subject of the ad
ministration of corporations" into . thi
light we may be assisted' by. the bes
Intelligence of the land in clearing uj
a subject concerning which j there is "s<
much ignorance and so much curloui
That the conference will be produc
tlve of much good in that it . will al
low' all sides to meet and freely ex
press their opinion : on', what he 're
gards as one . of the 'greatest' subject*
the country-has to deal , : with is th<
opinion of -President , Gompers. \u0084 Johi
Mitchell also sees much possible goot
in open and free discussion. -Dawes
regards the calling "of the conferenct
at this time as t a, highly, useful plec<
of work. He ; believes that : the\ Indus
trial problems confronting the countrj
today demand . consideration ] by th<
best, brains of the nation.
\u25a0 The* questions to.be discussed at th«
conference are declared: by President
Stahl of .the farmers' congress to /be
"the : most important ; pressing ! for solu
tion befcre' our people today.". "Grand
Master" Bachelder believes it is time
"for serious people, to discuss the trust
problem when President Roosevelt and
the law 'officers Vof the government,
whose duty it Is to enforce the Sher
man antitrust act, openly say that un
der It the business iof the country can
not be done today violat
ing it."
