RAIN OR SHINE rLAG&TArr TUESDAY, OCT. 29 ' A 'pUt "& T GOOD VOTE-GETTER HIS POPULARITY NOT SHOWN BY THE VOTE8 HE HAS RECEIVED. RECORD WILLSURPRISE MANY In New York When He Ran fop Gov. ' ernor He Did Not Get Full Party Support Presidential Vote When Analyzed Is Not to Hlg Advantage. Colonel Roosevelt Is regarded every where as the marvelous vote-getter. "Wo are. for Teddy because he will elect our county ticket," chorused the Roosevelt shoutcrs prior to the re nomlntnatlon of President Taft. And een now, when, having failed to get the Republican nomination for a third term, he Is heading a bolting Third Party organization, there are many Republicans who seem to think that he has a strong hold upon the people. The fact Is the tecord shows that he is not a successful vote set- Lter. The belief which prevails In some parts of the country that Roose velt has a magic hold upon the peoi le Is not supported by the facts, Mr. Roo8eelt's own activity In self-advertising is largely responsible for the belief. Take, for instance, his home state of New York. Here are the figures of the Republican vote cast in the three elections of 189C, 1898 and 1C00, the two j ears before and the two J ears after Roosevelt was a candidate for governor: 1896, Black 787.51C 1898, Roosevelt CC1.707 1900, Odell 804,839 When Roosevelt ran as a candidate for governor he had behind him his prestlgate of service In the war with Spain. Ho made a spectacular cam paign with a number of uniformed soldiers riding with him upon the rear platform of his special train Even with this advantage he polled j 125,000 less votes than Black and nearly 145,000 votes less than Odell t This shows that In his own state he I is not the vote-getter which he claims I to be. i Polled Less Votes Than Taft. i Colonel Roosevelt received an enor j mous plurality when he ran for presl I dent in 1904, but that was because 1,280,000 Democrats declined to vote for Judge Alton B Parker. The real I test of Roosevelt's plurality Is the number of Republican votes cast for him He polled 7.C23.48G votes, but oven this number was 55,000 less than were cast for Taft in 190S with Bryan In the field and practical Democratic harmony restored. Do these figures show Roosevelt ,to bo a great vote-getter? The figures as to Illinois are also Interesting and1 instructive. In 1904 the total Republican vote for Roose velt was 632,645, but this was 1.3S4 less than were cast for Charles S. Deneen for governor. Roosevelt was supposedly the idol of the Republican party while Governor Dencen's nomi nation was secured at the end of a three weeks' convention In which bit ter factional fighting developed. Yet Deneen, as stated, received 1,384 more votes for Roosevelt. An attempt Is made to demonstrate Colonel Roosevelt's popularity by cit ing the fact that his plurality In Illi nois In 1904 was 305,000, while Taft's was only 179,000 In 1908. The fact is that in 1904 Roosevelt received 632,645 votes. In 1908 Taft received G29.929 votes, so that out of about 630,000 votes the only difference between Roosevelt's popularity and Taft's popularity as shown by the total Re publican vote was 2,713. Illinois is cited merely because it Is typical of other states Some Primary Figures. As Republican cnndldate for presi dent last spring, Colonel Roosevelt polled 61 per cent of the total vote cast at the Illinois primaries, but only 42.37 per cent of iho Taft 1908 vote. A majority of the Republicans of Il linois have not expressed a prefer ence for Colonel Roosevelt for presi dent. In a recent statement Colonel Roosevelt said: "The primary In Illi nois last spring definitely decided that I was the choice of the Illinois Republican voters for president." Colonel Roosevelt should bo Informed than 42.37 per cent of the Repub lican vote In Illinois does not decide what 57.63 per cent shall do with a bolter who denounced their party be cause it would not nominate him Similar conditions prevail In other states. The foregoing record' proves that Colonel Roosevelt, without regard to his other essential deficiencies, Is not a powerful vote-getter. The "win-wlth-Teddy" bumcombe is quite popu lar with Colonel Roosevelt and his supporters with the hope of dragging into line timid voters and pot-htintlnr politicians. The facts show that an a vote-getter Roosevelt never had been as strong as his party. He was not as strong as Black and Odell In New York, where he Is best known; although running against a cripple In Judge Parker, he ran more than a million votes behind his party strength; he was not as strong as Taft in the country at large; and he was not as strong as Taft and- Deneen in Illinois. The current belief, stimulated by Roosevelt's own expressions, that Roosevelt Is a powerful vote-getter, Is dlsproven by the facts. - . -m.-ri il. fiiiiiiil i Hi Tffii ROOSEVELT DODGED TARIFF REVISION Roosevelt, When President, Failed to Take Any Action. Once in his life Sir. Roosevelt al most expressed an opinion on the tariff question. In a preliminary draft of one of his messages to congress as It came from the printer was this sentence. "In a later message I shall discuss the tariff." on revising the proof sheets of his message Mr. Roose velt blue-penciled that line. And he never camo, even that near to dis cussing the question again as long as he remained in the White House. And yet the tariff law then on the statute books was far more objection able than the Pajne law, which he Is nowso vigorously denouncing. Why didn't "he revise the tariff the way he now says it ought to have been when he had the power? He says now he wants to "fix It so that more of the tariff 'prize money' will go Into the pay envelope of the workman." Why didn't ho "fix it" that way dur ing the seven and one-half years he was in the White House? In other words, in the face of his record while In office, Is not all the Third Termer'B present talk about the tariff the most transparent tuff and bluff and balderdash?
