THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1909.
HARRY MEW WILL HOT EIIIER RACE AS PARTY LEAOER Returns From , Hunting Trip And Announces He Is Not Hankering to Be Republican State Chairman. FRIENDS STATE THEY WILL FORCE HIM TO Fred Sims Announces That Shortly He Will Send Out a Call for a Meeting of the State Committee. . (Palladium Special) Indianapolis, Ind., Dec. 8. The situ ation with reference to the chairman ship of the republican state committee has become more complicated since yesterday, when Harry S. New, of this 'city, made the statement that he is not a candidate for chairman of the state committee; that he will not be a can didate; that he will not take the placo If he Is elected to It. For several months past It has been, the under standing that New would be the only candidate whose name would be pre sented for the place, and that he would accept. It was known too,, that he could have the place if he would take it, and that the only thing that would keep him from being elected would be his own refusal to run. This has been pointed out In these dispatches several times. What Harry States. Mr. New has just returned from a hunting trip in Michigan, where ha goes three or four times a year. As soon as he struck' town yesterday he was asked whether he would run for state chairman, and he said he would not. But' there are friends of his who Insist that he will be elected any way, thus putting it up to him to serve. ; Mr.' New;,is said to feel that he has earned a rest from political labors. Be has been identified with the partv In one way or another : for thirty years, and has held many positions of responsibility, in the organization. He has served in almost every capacity, even up to chairman of the national committee, which position he occupied last year. But he is said now to hold that he has had enough, and that he wishes to have someone else assume the responsibility of running a cam paign. Even In spite of his positive declaration that he will not take the place if given to him. there are some who believe that his name will be pre sented. Is Preparing Notices. Fred Sims, secretary of state, and acting chairman of the republican state committee, says he will send out no tices some day this week for a meet ing of the state committee in this city during the holiday week. He says it will also be' decided this week whether there will be a love feast, but he Is now of the opinion that a love feast will be held. Whether the meeting of the state committee will be held on the same date as the love feast is a ques tion, however. It may be held on the same day or on the previous night. At that meeting the date will be set for .the election of new members of the state committee and for the reorgani zation of the committees and the elec tion of a chairman. James P. Goodrich, state chairman, has been in the city several times re cently, and has held conferences with Sims on the subject of reorganization, and it is said they have agreed on the general plan. Sims says, however, that it will be left to Goodrich, as chairman of the state committee, to decide whether a love feast will be held, but it is believed now that there will be one. Beveridge Coming Back. Senator Beveridge is expected back from Washington in a very few days and when he comes he will remain un til after the holidays. Therefore, he will be here when the state committee meets and also at the love feast, if on a Is held. There is not believed to be much danger of a serious contest for district chairman in any of the dis tricts, the purpose of the leaders be ing to avoid anything of this kind. As the matter stands now, the new com mittee will be a Beveridge committee that is, it will be a committee that will be satisfactory to the senator, and everybody concedes his right to Jiave it made so. Therefore, there is not. much chance for trouble In electing dis trict chairmen. Everybody around here is up in th3 air over the local option case in the supreme court, and on every hand there is heard the hope that the decis ion will be handed down soon so the people will know whether the law is constitutional or unconstitutional. . Tariff Board May Do Big Thing It Is Quite Possible That It Will Follow the Indianapolis Plan After All A Surprise Is Given. For an early breakfast, take home Mrs. Austin's pancake flour. Ready in a minute. . Washington, Dec. 8. While the ail ministration does not Intend to put any obstacle in the way of the effort which certain senators and reprosen-U-fives intend to make to obtain lesfs lr tion establishing a permanent tariff board, it can be said authoritatively thnt the president and the members ct his cabinet feel that there is al ready ample authority to direct the present tariff board to perform al most any function which might be as signed to a new board, or a reorganiz ed board. . President Taft has large and comprehensive plans for the board as it is now made up. For some time to come the board will necessar ily be engaged in advising the presi dent as to whether the maximum or minimum rates of the new tariff law shall be applied to any country. With this work off his hands, the board will be directed by the president to undertake a general study of the tar iff, with the view of discovering, it possible, whether there are any real inequalities in the present law, an l to suggest changes wherever they are deemed necessary. They Did Not Understand. The standpatters in congress who thought they were creating a tariff board of restricted authority win un doubtedly take note of the various significant remarks which Secretary MacVeagh, of the treasury, makes in his annual report. The tariff Doard is attached to the treasury depart ment, and it is the dutv of the sec retary of the treasury, acting under directions from the president, to as sign duties to the board. Secretary MacVeagh has evidently receive! his instructions from the president, for he says in his report: "The board has most ample authority, and I look for ward with great confidence to most important results in both branches t.f the board's work." The standpatters in congress did not understand that there were to be two branches of the board's work. They supposed they were authorizing a board whose work would be confined to assisting the president in the application of the maximum and minimum rates. At Home and Abroad. It is very well understood here that Secretary MacVeagh when he refers to two branches of the board's work has in mind the very important busi ness of making a complete study of the tariff, including the cost of pro duction at home and abroad, with the view of correcting inequalities in the present law If the board decides tat.t such inequalities exist, and for the purpose of giving congress an intilli-! gent basis for the next general re vision of the tariff. Those senators and representatives who have introduced bills providing for the creation of a tariff commission i mnj w-vjui: uuk iu uau 1 11 1: 111. Ail llivj have wanted to know since the ad journment of the special session last August is that the administration will take the liberty of making the exist ing tariff board a board such as the business interests of the country de manded through the Indianapolis con ! vention of a year ago. The executive committee of the committee of one hundred, created by the Indianapolis convention, has already received as surances from the administration that the present board will be required to do practically what the convention asked.
