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
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
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
The current belief, stimulated by
Roosevelt's own expressions, that
Roosevelt Is a powerful vote-getter, Is
dlsproven by the facts.

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?
