I spectacular in the extreme, 1 them promise to be (exciting and j The terms of thirty-one United jStates senators will expire March 3, 1909. Some of these are assured of [re-election without opposition, while others have bitter fights on their I hands. The contests in Ohio. Penn svlvania, New York and Iowa are bound to attract wide attention, j In Ohio Senator Foraker is fight ing for his political life against the Taft supporters. At one time thee might have been a compromise, but that time is now passed. The pri maries early next month for the .choice of delegates to the state con vention to elect delegates to the na . tional contest, are expected never jthelss to give a good indication of the comparative strength of the For ' aker forces and the opposition. The contest in Pennsylvania over j the successor of Senator Penrose I will be unusual in that it will be [settled In the primaries for the first time in Pennsylvania politics. In ! order to return to Washington Sen a ° r J,?® mU8t defeated the am - bUlous Flinn of Pittsburg, an able 'politician with plenty of money at his command. But the Penrose forces have an advantage in their ?°- n . j°. Y Y P arty machinery and up to date the chances of victory pear in their favor. < In New York there appears to be nothing definitely settled In regard to the senatorship except that Thomas C. Platt will be relegated to the "D. and O." club. Platt, oue of the most consummate politicians of, his time, has outlived his day and must give way to younger blood, When there seemed a possibility, that he would resign a year or so ago, former-Governor Frank Black was looked upon as his most likely successor. But the result of the coming presidential election may change things entirely. President j Roosevelt Is regarded as a possible successor of Mr. Platt, and Governor Hughes may also become an import ant factor in the problem. ant factor in the problem. The struggle oetween Senator William B. Allison of Iowa, the old est member of the senate In point of service, and Governor A. B. Cum mins will furnish a spectacular cam paign that will attract national at tention. Senator Allison wants a seventh term. Governor Cummins, who has been the leader of the re form movement in the republican party ln his state for years, Is p bltious for the senate. Senator Dol liver has lined up with Senator Al lison, and has the support of the majority of the Iowa delegation in congress. Governor Beckham will probably succeed Senator James B. McCreary of Kentucky. Senator Charles W. Fulton of Oregon and Senator Ches ter I. Long of Kansas will encounter opposition. So will Senator Alfred B. Kittredge of South Dakota, who has a strong opponent In the person of Governor Coe I. Crawford, known as a leader of the reform movement. In North Dakota Senator Henry C. Hansbrough will have to fight hard j for re-election. Senator George C. i Perkins of California may have an 1 opponent In the person of- Secretary of the Navy Metcalf, who Is credited with an ambition to swap his cabl-i net job for a place in the senate. In Missouri Senator William J. Stone will probably be re-elected. Congressman Champ Clark has been mentioned as a possible opponent of Senator Stone, but It Is not believed here that the astute Champ will give up a sure thing in . the lower house to take a chance on winning a seat in the senate. Senator Albert J. Hopkins of I1H nols must fight for re-election, and the same may be said of Senator Jacob H. Galllnger of New Hamp-, shire, and Senator Clay of Georgia. Senator Newlands of Nevada will probably not encounter serious trou ble. Millionaire Thomas R. Walsh Is ambitious to succeed the veteran Senator Teller of Colorado. A fight will be waged ln Wisconsin for the seat now held by Senator Stephen son, who Is filling the unexplred term of Senator Spooner and who does not desire an election for a full term. The new state of Oklahoma .,, , will have a contest on its hands for j _ the seat now held by Senator Thom ? C ' or \ th « b,lnd raember ' wbo drew the short term slip. Governor Haskell, IT is sa d, mav make a try for the seat. Governor Glenn of North Carolina may contest for the seE) t °f Senator Lee S. Overman. In Arkansas ex-Senator Berry, who was succeeded by Jeff Davis, may try for the seat now held by Senator James P- Clarke, whose term will expire one year hence. j --— j SEATTLE, Wash., Jan. 10.—At the democratic dinner on the anni versary of the birth of Andrew - Jackson, Judge George Turner of Spokane paId a warm trlbute to President Roosevelt, declaring that even though the members of thé THEY APPUI ROOSEVELT DEM0CBATS AT JACKSON DIN NER PAY WARM TRIBUTE TO THE PRESIDENT—IT IS MET WITH APPLAUSE audience were den?ocrat9 they were ln gpite of tbat f a t r . m indd men. He ap-'continued- • I ,, n . ' ' . . j The nearest approach we have had,to Andrew Jackson in the White House since Jackson's day is to be found in the personality of our dls tinguished president, Theodore Roosevelt. The nation owes him a debt of gratitude for what he has brought to pass ln legislation and administration, but It owes him an Immensely greater debt for the lm mensely greater service performed in awakening the apprehension of the people to the present conditions, arrd in arousing their conscience to war against those condition« until j they have been exterminated. "That he Is following In the line of democratic teaching and demo cratic exhortation does not lessen the merits of his service, hut rather enhances. It Is a truly great and heroic man that can renounce party In response to the dictates of con science and pursue a policy in pub lic office which he knows Is repro bated by a majority of his party as sociates. Theodore Roosevelt has done this, and ln common with mill ions of his fellow citizens, without regard to party, I honor and admire regard to party, I honor and admire him for It." Senator Turner's remarks drew forth vigorous applause, not only once, but several times. Thereafter several of the speabers followed the senator's lead and paid a more or less direct compliment to Mr. Roose velt. Not Infrequently the two names were linked together, but to gether or separate, their mention j drew forth applause, not much less j I I ' 1 j 1 j ! ; enthusiastic for Roosevelt than for Bryan. Several papers have been printing stories about the champion baseball rooter, Mike Regan "of Chicago." Boston fans don't object to the stories of Mike, but they want It dis tinctly understood that the king of rooters halls from Boston and not Chicago. As a minor leaguer Tack Tighe, who manages the Holyoke team next season, Is something on the style of a pippin. He won the Con necticut league pennant with tthe Norwich team In 1906 and the Three-I league championship with the Rock Island club last season. The ouestlon as to whether the membership of the Cotton State» league shall he changed from six to eight cluhs will probably be defi nitely settled at the meeting of the league directors ln Meridian next week. The Ohio State Tennis association has ordered a $250 trophy for Miss May Sutton to replace the one which disappeared recently after she won the .tri-state championship. GORE OFFERS A RESOLUTION Anti-Third Term Movement Led by Blind Senator WASHINGTON, Jan. 10.—Sena tor Gore of Oklahoma today intro duced a joint resolution providing that no person shall be eligible to be elected president of the United States' for more than two terms In succession. FINALLY TRACE MISSING BONDS MYSTERY OF COTTON SECURI TIES SOLVED BY BOOK AC COUNTS SHOWING TRANSFER BY J. DALZELL BROWN SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 11.—The Call yesterday said: The mystery of the Colton secur ities has been solved. They were sold by J. D. Robertson at the direc tion of J. Dalzell Brown for the Cal ifornia Safe Deposit & Trust com pany. They were handled by the broker age firm of E. H. Hutton & Co. of 490 California street, whose books tell the tale In figures that do not lie. They tell the tale that Brown lias long concealed. They show that while Brown was posing as a sub stantial and honest banker at Cali fornia and Montgomery streets, the record of his Infamy lay Indelibly Inscribed in the ledgers of tae brok erage house but a few blocks away. The discovery was made yesterday by Oscar Cooper, attorney for Walt er Bartnett, who visited the offices of Hutton & Co., and Inspected the books on behalf of his client. Coop er haB claimed all along that Bart nett knew nothing In regard to the disappearance of the bonds, and he has scored heavily by passing the matter up to the very door of Brown. - * t - - , FROM THE COUNTY RECORDS (By Commercial Trust Co.)
