President Wilson is not expected to eliminate himself from a third-term candidacy in his letter to the Jackson Day banquet ers, Thursday night. It is considered certain his communication will discuss matters of interest to the Democratic party, but it is not believed that it will include this question. It is regarded as certain the presi dent eventually will decide not to be come a candidate to succeed himself, but it is known he does not lx-lieve the present is a propitious time for such an announcement He thinks it unwise to ring torwara a multiplicity t men ambitious to become the chief executive. in his opinion it is preferable that the minds of senators be not distracted from the peace treaty and other public ques tions of moment and diverted to next year's national campaign. In the last three months the president has' had few visitors and with none has he taken up the advisability of his can didacy. Those closest to him believe he is pursuing the proper course anl preventing agitation that at this time would be useless if not detrimental. They insist he has nothing but the good of the parly at heart, and that he f.cls this deferment of pre-convention a'.i 'Ucs and controversies will prevent bitter rivalries and animosities.
