With no "favorite son" about wlmm politi cal affections cluster, Vermont Is watch the progress of the Feveral bonnis, and will make her definite choice later when tho right time comes. While tho recent canvass of the State by the Xew YorU Times and tho Chicago Tribune Indicated that Mr. Taft led the proceselo'i as dm choice, Vermont can not as yet bo calle.l n Taft State, diice the alleged canvass was not comprehen sive. The lirllows Tails Tunes Insists that this Is a ltooievelt State In spite of that gentleman's expressed Intont'on not to ho a candidate. And the Time's may ho right. Cortnlnly. when the sit uation Is looked at S'liiarely. there Is con siderable basis for our contemporary's claim. Vermonters generally are so well satlulled with the Itonseveltlan policy as a whole, that they would readily acqui esce In n renomlnatlon oven though they may not recat.l It ns a political neces sity. A renomlnatlon would undoubtedly prove more nrceptnble to them than would too strenuous nn attempt on the part of tho President to dlctato ns to Ills successor. The friendliness nn the part of Ver monters for Governor Hughes of New Yoik the gentleman who set the llsh nnd game league thinking along the line of "dangerous Independence" Is charac terized by some of the outside papers as remarkable. The men who, In high places, will unselfishly and Intrepidly fight against -roiruptlou In public life, against conscienceless methods of ndmln iHterlug the people's affairs, desorvo the friendliness of the people. This Is pre cisely what Oovernor Hughes has been doing, nnd Vermont honors herself when she honors him for his exemplification of a "dangerous Independence," Rho can afford to watch him from a presidential point of view and not hurriedly commit herself elsewhere, notwithstanding tho impetuosity of somo of tho boomers.

If It should be true, think what it would mean. It would he equivalent to Mr. Fletcher's admitting that ho was not well enough known and favorably enough estimated to he numbered among the men from whom tho voters might naturallv make choice of a governor on the recommendations of their own merits. but that he must resort to the clap-trap of a professionally conducted "campaign" to force himself before the people nnd Into office.

It Is not at all likely that a man of Mr. Fletcher's Judgment and experience with men and things would put himself In such an attitude. Tho candidacy for nny public office that depends for Its strength, not on tho candldato but on tho manager, is not a candldato at all, but a game.
