President Roosevelt finally, flatlv and firmly ?says that he will not un? der any circumstances be a candi? date for the nomination ol President by the 0. 0. P. So the flat has gone forth. Roosevelt ami the third term , hung like a pall over the ambition of many an aspirant. It follow???! him In the day time and it caused him many a sleepless night, now it is definitely mid decisively ?settled and tbe scramble has already commenc? ed. There seems to be a great amount of donbt as to what effect this announcement on the part of Mr. Roosevelt will have on the can? didacy of some of the favorite sons heretofore prominently mentioned. One politician of exjiericmv ami acu? men says that it is a very wet blan? ket on the Taft boom aid has put him entirely out of the race. An? other politician says that Taft s can? didacy is very much strengthened by it. All, however, s? ems to think that Taft and Foraker both will have to await the r.suit iu Ohio; that Ohio will settle the matter for one or the other. Hughes' friends daim that now the Governor it sored of the slectora] vote of Now York, with Cortelyou as a close run? ning candidate. Bryan says that he predicted Roosevelt would not again be a candidate. One thing we notteefrom the press of the South, as well as from the utterances of some of its leading men, and that is that Bryan is not absolutely certain ot tbe full delegation from the solid Booth; there is s une talk of a break. There is at least some show for a Democratic viet?>ry, if they will nom? inate a good conservative ?indic?ate on a safe and sane platform. ?.?commendation of Pr?sidant ffftff saWff?? jr |i"J?--";T message, that larger appropriations should be made for the permanent improvement of the navigable rivers of the country, is one that Congress ought to heed. This is a country ol great wealth and resources, and it is iPTeasing and growing in wealth daily. Its products of forest, mine, farm and manufacture, are increas? ing at a far greater rate than are the facilities for moving th-?m. and this difficulty coti'd ?be remedied in a measure by the improvement of our navigable stnams. Additional ap? propriations for rivers and harbor? will mean a tremendous increase in business and 11 ade, and the govern? ment is fully He to stand this addi? tional expen? It is "true that ap? propriations f this character must bs kept up i .m year to year as rivers are c ) -tantly filling up, but the pgople de:: and such appropria? tions, and r government is sup poaed to be ran for liest interests of ios whole ?i- i le.

In Burlington, N. J., Murder 8hot By Unknown Man. Mt Holly, N. J., Dec. 13.?Augustus Rose, of Burlington, who is expected to be a prominent witness In the Jef? ferson murder trial was shot t>y an unknown man on the outsmrts of i,ur lingtoa. The shot was fired at close range by a man who had been hiding in the shrubbery and who made his ??cape. It is thought Rose will re? cover. Attracted to the scene by the sound of the shot, half a dozen men took up the chas?- after Rose's assailant He ran down the mill road, well in advance of his pursuers. He darted Into a dump of bushes and disap? peared from alght. He was making in the direction of the blacksmith ?hop which was the rendesvons of the three men no-v under arrest and suspected of knowing something of the murder of Edward S. Jefferson, the Burlington grocer. # Rose is a brother of the young wo? man who testified at the inquest Into the slaying of Jefferson, that on the night of his murder, shortly after the train which struck his dead body had errme to a Etop near her home, she had seen three men run past the house In M the direction- of the blacksmith shop It wa? mainly through her testimony that/suspicion was fastened upon the three men now under arrest. 325 BODIES RZCQVERED Pira Again Breaks Out In Wrecked Miner at Monongah, W.

TO MEET JULY 7, 1908 after Spirited Debate National Com BBlttBa Decides to Accept $100,000 Offered By Denver For the Conven? tion. 13.?After deciding to hold the next Democratic national convention at Denver, Colorado, and Ixlng the date of the meeting for July 7th, 11)08, the Democratic national com? mittee entered upon a spirited debate on the propriety of accepting more of the $100,000 offered by Denver for the convention than actually needed to pay the convention expenses in that city. The opposition to the acceptance of the contribution took the form of a reso? lution by Representative Clayton, of Alabama, detuning money not actu? ally needed for convention purposes, but after a long debate the resolution was laid on the table by a vote of 31 to 14. Mr. Clayton, Representativo John Sharp Williams, of ?Mississippi, and Governor Hoke Smith, of Georgia, all spoke in favor of the passage of the resolution. Mr. Smith was especially emphatic In saying that the $100,000 which had been offered to secure the Republican convention and refused by the Republican national committee had been offered to and was about to be accepted by the Democratic committee. He said the Republicans had turned down the offer because It was regarded as in the nature of a bribe and that Democrats, in view of that circum? stance, could not afford to accept It Mr. Williams spoke in similar vein, as also did Mr. Clayton. Mr. Taggart advocated the acceptance of the $100,000, saying it would be BSHdod now even worse than money was needed In 1900 and that at that time It w<>r.ld have been practically impos? sible to have opened headquarter? for Judge Parker It they had not had the extra money secured from St. Loui?. where the convention was held.
