Occasionally one hears the charge made by some unfriendly per son to the president that Mr. Roose velt is playing both ends again the middle for the purpose of securing his own re-election, but no one In the capital seriously believes there is any foundation for any such assertion. No one here doubts that the presi dent was sincere when he put forth his now-famous statement on election night in 1904 that he did not want and would not accept another term. Nor is there any belief that he has since changed his mind. As a matter of fact It is pretty well understood In Washington that the president has other and very definite ambitions. He wants to be a member of the United SUtes senate, believing that there he would have a better chance of adding to his fame than would be afforded even by another four years in the White House. Discussing the matter with a friend not long ago, the president called at tention to the fact that when he re tired from the White House ha would still be 10 years below the average age of senators, and expressed the opinion that In the senate there was work worthy anf any man's ambition. Whether Mr. Roosevelt has thought of another term In the White House after an interval of years is another matter. It Is not unreasonable to be lieve that he has; indeed, should be not have? It would be a tribute to his greatness such as no other American ever received; something that Grant, that great captain of the Civil war and idol of the people, failed of at taining; something that would give! him a unique place in the history of ! the republic. ^ j But so far as concern 1908, practical politicians have put Roosevelt wholly out of the reckoning. Even the j staunchest of his admirers admit that, • in view of the repeated declarations that he was not to be considered, It would be suicidal for him to place ' himself In the attitude of even a re ceptive candidtae. They believe It would so hurt his prestige that de feat would be almost his certain por tion. Before President Roosevelt left for Oyster Bay the Japanese ambassador tal ked with him about the attacks on Japanese in California and about the destruction of their property Aokl diplomatically hinted that the United States should pay indemnity to Japan for the San Francisco mobs' outrages President Roosevelt remained silent, i and mistaking this silence for acquise ence in the suggestion, the ambassador made a definite proposition that the ! United States pay an Indemnity. There was no mistaking the president's atti- ' * - - tude then. He forcibly expressed dis approval of the proposition and dis conduct his negotiations In future with the state department.

PROMINENT MEN MAY ATTEND Eastern Reserve Question Timely Topic irrigation Congress SACRAMENTO, Cal., June 21.—The suggestion that the Eastern forest re serve question be discussed at the 16th session of the national irriga tion congress, to be held in Sacramen to, Cal., Sept. 2-7 next, has created much interest among prominent men of the Eastern states who are identi fied with the movement to establish reserves in the Appalachian and White mountains. The headquarters of the congress, which is already open at Sacramento, has received let ters from all over the Eastern states approving the suggestion and express ing the hope that the matter will be scheduled for discussion at tbe Sacra mento meeting. The proposal to place this question in the program was an expression of the desire of the congress manage ment to make the coming session truly national in »cope and a factor n bringing about a wide-spread ap preciation of the common interest wnicb the East and West have in de velopment of uational policies of for est preservation, stream conservation, control and best use, and in the wnole question of national develop ment of the great natural resources of the country, including the forests, the waters and the lands. Among th oee who have written let ters to the irrigation congress offi cials on this subject are men ot high official station, prominent manufac turers. agriculturists and others, E. B. Pike, president ot the Pike Manufacturing company of New Hampsh.re and New York, a member of the executive committee of the congress, writes; ''The preservation of the forests on the Appalachian and White Mountain ranges will af fect not only the entire Eastern states, but the nation as a whole. This is due to the fact that in these ranges the water powers which give life to some of our greatest manu facturing enterprises have their source. On the success of these en terprises depends largely the pros perity of certain manufacturing sec tions. Let the prosperity of these sec tions be demoralized and the results will be felt from coast to coast." Dr. Thomas E. Wdl, secretary of the American Forestry association, writes: "Irrigation and forestry ■ are very closely connected; the woods and waters are almost Siamese twlse. To permit such a meeting as the national irrigation congress to pass without discussing the relations of irrigation and forestry would, in my judgment, be a serious mistake. And the most Important forestry question now be fore the American people is the Appa lachian-White Mountain question.'' D. Q. Purse of Savannah, Ga., presi dent of the Interstate Sugar Cane Growers' association, writes: '1 heartily approve the plan of interest ing the Appalachian forest reserve workers In the national irrigation congress, because of the close rela tionship between the two overshadow ing propositions for the respective sections by each.''
