Precedents Are Against the
President's Seeking a
Third Term
Contest for the Nomination
Will be in Ohio and
New York
Instructions From State
Conventions Not ' Bin
ding on Delegates
CHICAGO, Nov. 23.— A
Washington special to the
Inter Ocean says: It -is be
coming more and more ap
parent that the battleground
of the contest for the repub
lican presidential nomination
will be in New York and
These are the states in
which the historic fight of
1880 was waged for and against
a third term for General Grant,
and from one of those states —
Ohio — came as the nominee of
the convention a man whose name
had not been mentioned until the
convention met. . ; i ' :
That convention Z settled . two
things lor all time— -first,* that" thV*re
publican party coulfl not be Induced to
set aslfle the, example and tradition of
TYa.shinston'6 course regarding & third
term, even for a man of supreme popu
larity and great achievement, for If the
party ever could be persuaded it surely
would have been for Grant; second,
that no "unit" rule can be enforced by
etate delegations against the will of la
fllvldual delegates. .
in other words. \ that Instructions
from state conventions are not bind
ing on district delegates. New York,
led by Roscoe ConkHng, went Into the
ISSO convention two-thirds for Grant;
Ohio, led by James A. Garfleld, for
John Sherman.
The Blame sentiment broke the
solidity of the delegations from both
of these states, and this defection,
especially in Ohio, led ultimately to the
nomination of Garfield, for whom no
contest had been made. Garfleld, fight
ing for tho right of each delegate to
vote as he pleased, made a speech that
made him thereafter Its central figure
and its nominee.
So, If some people have not accepted
the Roosevelt declaration of four years
ago as of binding force, they can
quote precedent in Justification of
their doubting mood.
No on« Intimate with President
Roosevelt* a purposes, however, believes
that he wants another term in the
"White House. Mr. Roosevelt's convic
tion is that history takes note not of
how long a man occupies the presi
dency,, but of what he does while he is
He believes ho has done some things
that will give him a reasonable place
in history that another four years
could not strengthen and nilght
weaken- Mr. Roosevelt can not reply
publicly to mere gossip. He has de
clared his purpose to those whom he
regards as close enough to him to dis
-cuss the matter.
It would be absurd for him to
assume before a single delegate is
elected, or the time and place of the
convention fixed, that he is called upon
formally to declare again that he will
not be its candidate. .
If the president's mind has been ac
curately read by recent visitors, how
ever — for no words are let slip to
srulde one— he is not so much con- i
cerned over the Bryan resurrection as
he is regarding the course of .his own
party. He wants no backward step
there, and it Is no secret that he would
fight anything in that direction to the
limit. Of course, any candidate bas
ing his claims on a modification of the
Roosevelt policies would have to meet
his opposition. That holds good In
New York state as well as any other.

Grove L. Johnson and 24
other members of the lower
house, among whom was a
majority of the San Fran
cisco members, by their votes
today for the $25 contingent
expense grab attempted to
