In poltlcnl circles In the capital last night the. opinion was pretty generally expressed by all except those closely roXited with President Taft that the Roosevelt vie. tory In Pennsylvania Suturduy may eventually result In tho retirement of PrenUlent Tuft as u candidate before the Chicago convention. Pear was ex pressed, even by those close to tho president, that tho Pennsylvania land slide may bo followed by a defeat for the president in unio, ainssaeuu nelts and other stiites which are yet to hold prlmatles. It Is declared that it Mr. Taft Is beaten In Ohio as ho has been In Illi nois and .Pennsylvania. -t would bo "foolhardy to consider lihn itiljrHfeiT ns a candidate. Tho latest and most depennble returns from tho Keystone BtnU prlmilrle give Roosevelt all but Dlnb of tho state's 7C delegates.

There Is a Strong demand that President Taft withdraw, and his manager probably felt that hn should unswer that demand promptly und with all emphasis, by making this filntement. Whether or not Presldont Taft nhould ho renominated or should with draw from the contest In the Interest f tho party as a wholu, It Is un doubtedly now a matter of gravo doubt that ho can h renominated.
