nxr-ht^ of the w*>ek. the importance and
effect of which/can not be estimated
. even approximately. Roosevelt's re
. pudiation of the misuse of his name in

.by Phil Stanton of Los Angeles. Will

• tbn?. That; Roosevelt's repudiation of
tlie, use: of his name as an advocate of
Johnson's' iibmination is considered a
serious blow to Johnson is evidenced
by the/suppression by some of the
•-.Johnson newspapers of the Associated
I Press dispatches containing Roosevelt's
statement, given to the public on Fri
day. \u25a0 .\u25a0 .' .'. '• •• ' ;
To say that Roosevelt's alleged advo
cacy of Johnson did not help the league
candidate would be to mouth political
nonsense. The- advocacy, of Roosevelt
-would hf-lp any candidate in any state
in tijis union! There is no room for
doubt about that. Every candidate for
republican nomination for governor of
California knew that Roosevelt's sup
port.was a real asset. Phil Stanton dis
covered: that the popular belief that
Roosevelt was for Johnson was a de
cided handicap for Phil Stanton Jn some
southern -California communities, and,
• snore particularly, in Los Angeles. He
took his troubles to Roosevelt, with the
result that the world at large was in
formed that Roosevelt was not for
. Johnson; that he was not interfering
in the California primary fight and that
.im-.roan had authority to use his name
; fn-.connection with the California fight
..or/any other republican contest for
party nomination, Johnson says that
...he" got the' impression that' Roosevelt
• nad srnt Pinchot to California from
'j'th'e.. newspapers supporting him for
•governor and from Pinchot, whom lie

effect of Roosevelt's denial' will prove
will always be a maitter of conjecture.
That it -will have'- some -adverse effect

• Three- months^ ago."- .when; Anderson
was boosted Into tlie. gubernatorial sit
uation,-.scores of: men who had." lived
always in fear of the- mysterious power
of "the machine, could see only victory
ahead of the superintendent, of :-banks.
-They considered the machine, vote as a
' lenown- quantity, sufficient' to nominate
any respectable candidate over a field
• that cnust divide the admittedly larger
independent vote. They counted -first
.upon a .republican "primarj:" vote of ap
proximately .100,000. Cased upon the
averages 'of Uieir:^ experience in the
"election of delegates they estimated
• that .they started with 40,000 votes
that could be controlled or would be
"Cast -for' their -candidate .on the basis
of^ alleged party "regularity."' • .
" As against this.4o,oooout,of a'prob
*Rble total of 100,000. they were of the
opinion that no other candidate could
poll more than 30.01)0./ They contended
that Curry.-, without the co-operation
of a field of candidates conatitutins:, a
"ticket" could not break into the ranks
of the 'men who aligned themselves
cither as "regulars" or "independents;';
They put the reverie English on their
estimates of Johnson's chances fostered
by the Lincoln-Roosevelt league, and :si
complete ticket. /They argued logically:
enough that the selection of a complete
ticket by the Lincoln-Roosevelt league
would array all candidates not indorsed
by the league : against .Johnson.;. With
Stanton in the south to cut into / John
son's Lbs ; A ngel es .support and 'to-. pol I

that could not be ordered into the' i»a] '-:

..That something -had :•' gone \u25a0 'wrong?
with the machine men's deductions be
oame apparent almost" before- the. pri-,
man" campaign was under way* In the
first place, pome 'of the most' importarjt
and most/influential men in the organ
ization'were, not in favor of Anderson
as a gubernatorial candidate; Some of
them were for one candidate; and: sorne
for another. A majority of them' ap
preciated tlip; danger of the situation
as viewed from an '\u25a0'. organize tion : stand-
point- They recognized Curry's tremen
dous personal strength : and admitted
the probability ; of;; Curry's; /inroads. on/
both sides of the .factional fence. Some
of them wanted iLlncoln-ltobsevelt
1 eapue Candida to who would \u25a0 -.: not be
offensive to thousands of regulars .who
were never .machine men. in/ the .ac
cepted sense, but who had been held in
line by ; the "party for : party's /sake'-'
slogan," //; / - "' * , *\u25a0
: It/ was -an open secret that an. impor-.
tant element . in / the machine, forces:
based their hopes of defeating .Curry
on the belief that Mayor Frank Mott
of Oakland might be made the Lincoln--
Roosevelt candidate, and / that they
could send: the "regulars" down the line
•with ' the leaguers for Mott against.
Curry. Frankly enough, they hoped, for
little from Mott, beyond forestalling his.
subsequent development, by the politi
cal department of a rival railroad and
the immediate defeat of Curry. ' They
had no reason to expect 1 that Mott. as
governor would give, them anything
more than a. square deal. .They be-.
lieved that with Mott as. a candidate,
for governor and backed -by '.the Lin
coln-Roosevelt. league,; their . Alameda
and Los Angeles.' county problems would
be solved and - Curry's - San :FrancLsco'
strength nullified. . .:\u25a0\u25a0//•'///"
MOTT MADE XO FUSS v //'\u25a0'-; . \u25a0;
The Loss Angeles leaders of the Lin
colh-Roosevelt league; refused to stand
for Mott. They declared that while his
nomination and election .might be' easy
enough for the league and the machine,
in combination, his election would . be
in effect a league defeat rather -than
a league victory.' Mott was relegated
to the post of valued supporter. : And
be it said to his credit that he iva^ hot
a party to the fuss made by his f riendv
on both sides of the factional fer»ce.
Another important machine faction
was out for John McNab of Ukiali; wlib,
with Xati onal ' Committeeman George
A. Knight^ had borne; the oratorical
brunt of the party's /battles for; years.:
Like the Mott men they did not get
far./ They were not only turned down,
but McNab was subjected to gratu itous
''affront when he came to; San Francisco
to make a graceful retirement from the
situation. With the passing of McNab,
the* formal announcement of Anderson's
candidacy was given to the /public, but
Anderson did not wish pubJlciy : to
acknowledge that he was the, machine
candidate. Stanton had broken into
the Los Angeles /situation and iiaa.de it
virtually impossible for the machine
bosses in the south to do anything for
Anderson. Their original opposition to
Anderson's selection '•-; and ; his :. subse
quent attitude toward the machirie men
did little to spur- them on in his behalf,
with the result that when; they finally
started the work of lining up the state
for him they found the . rank and :file
of : the party well set in its several
choices of gubernatorial timber. The
public was not prepared: to accept An
derson as a .'winning; party 'Standard
bearer. . '\u25a0./.;:\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0; \u25a0• ; ' \u25a0: . ' /. v '\u25a0•"'\u25a0•-.. \u25a0' ':-\ .'\u25a0 , :
If Anderson was induced to get into
the. race, by the promiseVthat Curry
could be coaxed or frightened out of
the: gubernatorial race the frailty of
that promise was quickly \ apparent;
Early in 1909 Curry,: who- had never
made any secret; of his . intention to
seek gubernatorial nomination- if ' the
direct primary was adopted in.Califor-.
nia, put the question ; of .candidacy : up
to Governor. GJllett. . .Curry said that
If Gillett, w-hp had made a g.bod goy
erhor, would say cither publicly or .pri
vately that, he sought a: second-. term
Curry would abandon his gubernatorial
aspirations /arid give . his support -. to
Gillett.". On the other: hand; ; If Gillett
would not /declare, that he; sought' re
nominatioh, said Curry, he ; would, -be- a
candidate subject to no string's and/no
conditions other than/the : will" of; the
republican electors . expressed '\u25a0'\u25a0 at - the
primary polls.' Gbyjerhor \u25a0' Gillett : de-*
cllned to announce that r he w;anteil "a.

campaign. He had no faction, or.- p'r-.
