Colonel Roosevelt for President (Editorial In New York Tribune) Colonel Roosevelt and no "pussy Tribune likes this candidate and issue. regards Senator Root, Its favorite long as he had a chance of nomlna m, as now practically eliminated. It j nnot Interpret any more hopefully j failure of the "oxygen treatment" ! rich his candidacy received, In the I ape of the manifesto with 75 signers. party thinks that Mr. Root would be so likely to win as either Colonel kosevelt or Justice Hughes, and it Ints him as secretary of state in the kt Republican administration, since cannot have him as president. We are for Colonel Roosevelt be use we believe the country needs in. No one else will quicken the lse of the nation as he will quicken No one else will etlr the conscience the people as he will stir it. No else will Inspire patriotism as he Inspire It. Bp one else personifies the issue the Republican party must make he personifies it. No one else pre its so effective an antithesis to Wll be. If we are Americans, real eribans, the colonel Is our man. He timid politicians were consulting books and counting the man vote he spoke and the coun harkened. He is the leader in the t for Americanism, and we don't 'in changing leaders when we going to the front.

A mem orandum on the subject has been pre sented to the state department. tbem aside and are putting them aside because we feel that they have no place In a crisis like this. We come out for Colonel Roosevelt as a Republican newspaper. Intending to remain Repub lican, and we feel that In doing so we are doing the best thing not only for the nation but for the Republican j j party. ! We plight have preferred another leader, but there Is no other leader, Justice Hughes might have iipoken If he had been free to speak. Indeed, we feel sure he would have spoken, and for Americanism, had silence not been imposed upon him and then we should have preferred him. But the plain fact is that he did rot, could not, speak. If the justice should be chosen leader In the fight for a worthier nationalism, he would have to take the torch that Colonel Roosevelt has thus far bone. He would have to accept an Issue that meant Its most only In another man's hands. Surely In the transfer we should lose our stride. As a people we should feel that we, had hung back, that we hadn't "gone the limit" In the true American way. -The governments of Europe would feel this, too. They would conclude that we meant to «tem porize. Something would be lost of the moral effect of moving straight on under the leadership of the man who represents the purpose of this country as no one else does or can. The colonel stands for the things the Tribune stands for. These things will be advanced more by his nomina tion than by any other nomination that can be made. The Tribune must sup port him. . We are doing more this year than chooslng a new president. We are choosing which way the country shall go in th? era that Is now opening. Just as our fathers chose the nation's path in the days of i860. - ■■■■■■ No Developments in the German Situation Till Reply Is Received Washington, April 21.—Secretary Lansing conferred with President Wilson before the cabinet meeting today.
