The appointment of Gen. Luke ;
E. Wright of Memphis to be !
secretary of war to succeed Sec
retary Taft, who will resign
July the first, did not come as a
surprise to the country as it was
known that such was Mr. Roose
velt’s intention. Thej'.return of
Gen. Wright to this country
from Japan on the eve of the
convention may have been
brought by the suggestion of
Mr. Roosevelt. Before congress
adjourned it was known
that the president would appoint
Gen- Wright to succeed Taft,
and it is said that he made a
public declaration that he would
do so if Taft was nominated for
the presidency. Gen. Wright
has been regarded very highly
by President Roosevelt and the
Secretarv of war. He served as
vicegovernor of the Phillippines
wnile Mr. Taft was governor,
and upon Mr. Taft’s resignation
he was appointed governor of the
Phillippines by the president.
Gen. Wright was born in Mar

many years has resided it Mem

The Professor Won Out
“I remember a stately and
venerable professor, ” said Pres
ident Hadley, of Yale, while
talking about his student days,
“upon whom some sophomore
once tried to play a trick.
“The professor, one morning,
being unable to attend to his
class on account of a cold, wrote
on the blackboard. “Dr. Dash,
through indisposition, is unable
to attend to his classes today.
The students erased one let
ter in this notice making it read
“Dr. Dash, though indisposition
is unable to attend to his lasses
“But it happened a few min
utes later the professor returned
for a box he had forgotten.
Amid a roar of laughter he de
tected the change in his notice,
and approaching the blackboard
he calmly erased one letter in
“Now the notice read: “Dr.
Dash, though indisposition, is

New York June 21—The Her
ald has this from Chicago:
In the cold gray dawn of the
morrting after the outlook for
the Presidential campaigu does
not seem half so bright to the
men who named the ticket as it
did when the range was closer.
Indeed, though the weather is
hot in Chicago and there is good
corn weather all through the
Middle West, there seems to
^have been a heavy political
The prediction is being made
here that the mutual congratu
lations which are being shower
ed on one another by the radi
cals and the conservatives will
soon turn to recriminations, and
the Roosevelt will be blaming
the Cannon men for puttiug
sand in the machine oil and the
Cannon men will be accusing the
rtuoseven; men oi loosening all
the bolts in the Republican
Whatever may be said of the
situation in the East many of
the editors of the Republican
newspapers in the Middle East
are beginning to have doubts
as to what’s ahead, They think
that the fight for the Presidency
will largely centre in the states
of Illinois, Indiana. Michigan,
Wisconsin, Kansas, Nebraska,
Minnesota and Iowa. They
leave New York for the present
out of all calculations and figure
that these States must be taken
as the Index of how the election
These States muster 111 votes
in the Electorial College
There will be in the Elector
al College which will elect Taft
or Bryan 583 votes, the total
having grown by the admission
of Oklahoma, which has seven
votes, almost certain to be Dem
ocratic. In the last Electoral
uoilege Kooseveit had ddb and
parker 140. The states mention
ed above by going Democratic in
1904 would have given Parker
251 electoral votes and Roose
225. A majority of the Elector
al College this time will be 242
electoral votes, and Bryan will
be elected if he carries these
states in the Middle VV est even
should the Republican strength
in the East remain as it is
The platform it is held by the
prominent politicians leaves the
party open all through the Wes
tern country to attacks by
Bryan. Those who followed the
convention at close range heard
that Wall Street had cold shivers
at the applause for Rooevelt and
at the selection of James S.
Sherman for vice president be
cause he was one of the men
mentioned in the Roosevelt Har
But Wall Street has no mono
poly of the cold shivers. N. B.
Scott, National Committeeman
for West Virginia, announced to
day that he intended to resign
from the National Commitee in
a few weeks. When asked
about it he said:
“I have been connected with
the committee for twelve years
and through three successful
campaigns. I do not want to
have my record broken.”
The Middle West so far as a
majority of the voters are con
cerned is repres ented as being
strongly commit ted to Roosevelt
policies- Democrats and Rep
ublicans alike in overwhelming
numbers are said to be ready to
follow Roosevelt. They believe
in the election of United States
Seaators by popular vote. They
believe in the publicity of cam
paign contributions. They be
lieve in more radical tariff revis
ion than is favored by the lead
ers in congress. They are still
bent on gettiug after the rail
roads and making them reduce
To add to the* complexity of
the situation the anti- injunction
plank has proven an offence
rather than bait to labor- Great
stress is being laid here on the
apparent fact that the second
place was given to the “allies”
against the wtshes of the Pres
ident anp Secretary, Taft. The
administration papers here teem
with statements that the White
House was beaten in the Conven
tion on the last day by the House
of Representatives. Thev say
that the President and Secretary
Taft did not want Mr. Sherman
nominated; that they both know
that New York will go republi
can anyway, and that [this nom
ination will of itself make the
Middle West doubtful; that it
will be regarded as loading Taft
down with all the sins of the Six
tieth Congress and all the react
ionary sentiment than has been
represented by Mr. Sherman as
a member of the Committee on
rules and an opponent of labor
Friends of Mr. Sherman say
that this comes with bad grace
from the administration, that

All the politicians of Kansas,

that the sentiment of these states
has become radical. It was with
many misgivings that the United

and getting the support of .T. P.
