His Name May be Only One Pre
sented at Convention.-Alaba
ma Already Pledged.
Washington cor Columibia State.
Washington, Nov. 21.-None of the
Roosevelt rooters need be alarmed
at the report which has gone forth
in certain directions to the effect that
the president has issued an order
that no federal officeholders will be
allowed to go to the Republican con
vention pledged to vote for Roose
velt. It means only that no federal
officeholdei, suc: as postmasters, dis
trict attorneys, collectors of internal
revenue and marshals, will be allow
ed to go at all. Roo!evelt does not
intend that there shall be a repeti
tion of the Minneapolis convention
of 1892 when Harrison was' nominat
ed for a second term by his own ap
pointees, 400 of whom sat in the
convention and voted for their chief
and official creator. Mr. Roosevelt
does not want any such a pitiful
performance as that, especially
since he has announced that "under
no circumstances" wo ld he accept
another nomination. And for that
reason those who have federal jobs
will stay away from the convention.
But-they will be expected to
work like beavers of the most stren
uous type to get men as d-legates
who will be for Roos?velt.
The circumstances of the propaga
tion of this idea that the president
had issued this order to the captains
of the clans throughout the states
through their great general and gen- 1
eralissimo, Frank HI. Hitehcock, are
peculiar. They are peculiar to the
master manipulator in the White
House. Some three - four of the
chosen few among the Washington
correspondents were called to the in
ner sanctuary a day or two ago.
What was said in there was not for
publication, and no man on the out
side was privileged to know; but
the chosen correspondents came out
with their coats buttoned up in front,
their gloves carefully stretched and
their chests a little bit extended,
They had been taken into the confi
I dence of the mighty and they pro
eeeded to tell to an awaiting public
which reads their papers, and on the
side to some of their newspaper
friends who do not enjoy the confi
dence of the inner sanctuary, how
it all is, stating that they have it
"upon the highest authority." The
president -wanted to get the impres
sion abroad in a quiet and unofficial
way, so he could deny it if necessary,
that he was dead set against a third1
term and that any man on the pay-.
roll of the federal government who j
owes his appointiment to t, presi
dent or any of his underlings who
Pshould be caught working for a third
term for Roosevelt would forthwith
and peremptorily lose .his job. That
is a very good thing to get abroad, es
pecially when it comes "on the high
est autGority" without being irretvo
eable or deniable. The fact is, and'
this is learned upon authority more
reliable if not quite so "high," that
no such order has gone forth as. that
Nfederal officeholders must not go to
the Republican convention pledged
to vote for Roosevelt; not as. yet,.
anyway. No such order, it is safe to*
say, is going forth. An "undet-.
standing" may be handed up and
down the line, but thes' fellows who
came out of the presidential sanc
tuary, after which they wrote stor-1
ies 'upon the highest authority "
have an "understanding" quite dif
ferent from the ones the postmasters~
and other federal officeholders have.
These l'atter are expected to keep up
thte Roosevelt shouting and. on the
q. t., they~ are being coaxed by one
qf the abiest leftenants of the time
to do more than mee shot. lng, but
to get actual pledges.4
In Alaba.ma it is all fixed up. The
4elegates have been thosen, and
the.s a: e out and out Rcvseveh men,
who are going to vote the name of
Roosev4lt in a loud and dramatice
voice when the first name on the roll
is called at the convention. When
the first state on the roll votes for
R.oosevelt, the stampede will begin
right then and there and the other
states will follow suit. Those who
'know the real situation and have not
been hoodwinked by the fake "un
derstandings" which have gone forth~
have the hest of reasons for believ
ing that if any other name than
Roosevelt is ment.ioned at the next i
Re:mblican convention it will all be
a m-sa. disappointing and humiliatingi]
missa~p, against which direful disap
poir iment both to themselves and ]
their chief the administration field
lieutenauts ares working throughout
the day and upward into the night.
So, all ye who think that the coun
try 's prosperity and the conservation
of the righteousness of the world de
pnds upon the continued reign of
r. l.. take courage. The end is not
