He next bobbed up as president of
the New York police commission under
mayor Strong, who was elected by the
Independents. He held this office from
May, 1895. to April. 1S97, and his ad
ministration was marked by a vigorous
and -well directed campaign that
brought him more than ever before his
neighbors and friends, the citizens of

that his services could be used to
greater advantage in the national field
. s . - j. i.
so he resigned his municipal position in
Aew lork ion an appointment as as
sistant secretary of the navy.
It has been said that tnis position
was tendered the dynamic New Yorker
because it offered little chance to "do
harm." But fate in the shape of the
Spanish American war intervened and
again gave him an opportunity to pre
sent himself in the forefront of the
Mr. Roosevelt, in fact, became a
prophet and leader almost immediate
ly after his appointment. He made no
secret of his firm conviction that af
fairs in Cuba were in such a precarious
state that intervention in the island
by the United States would be neces
sary, and in order to forestall the
emergency he set about advocating re
forms in the navy.
He organized a system of rank and
promotion among naval offocers; advo
cated vital changes in the target prac
tice of United States war vessels, and
sought in every way to cut the red
tppe that bound that slowgoing de
partment. With the destruction of the Maine in
Havana harbor his duties and responsi
bilities increased a thousand fold. "War
was inevitable and he plunged into the
work of preparing the navy for the
expected encounter with vigor. His
last assignment in the navy depart
ment was as a member of the war
board, charged with the duty of mov
ing the ships and watching the enemy.
Itetigns to Go to "War.
When the war was formally declared
lie immediately resigned, saying,
"There is nothing for me to do here.
I must get into tne fight myself. It is
a Just war, and the sooner we meet,
the better. Now that it has come, I
have no right to ask others to fight
while I stay at home."
The organization of the "Rough Rid
ers" (First regiment of United States
volunteer cavalry) is a matter of his
tory and is yet fresh in the memory of
the people. Plainsmen, mountaineers
and millionaires were afla'me over its
organization and from the east to west
the. flower of the country sought en
listment in its ranks.
Though he was at first offered the
command of this body of horse, he in
sisted that Leonard Wood be made
colonel and contented himself with the
lieutenant colonel's office. He was
sworn as lieutenant colonel on May 6,
189S, and from May 9 to 19, the Rough
Riders organized at San Antonio, Tex.
They left San Antonio on May 29, ar
riving at Tampa, Fla., on June 3. On
June 22 they arrived on Cuban soil and
on the 24th of that month their first
engagement took place, the fight at
The Ilooscielt Hough Riders.
The Rough Riders were easily the
most spectacular regiment in the Cu
ban field. Their doings and sayings
lent themselves to the descriptive fac
ulties of the war correspondents and in
a short time their name was upon ev
ery lip and their fame had spread
throughout the United States.
Then came the battle of San Juan
and Roosevelt's gallant leadership dur
ing that affraj. There has been some
little criticism of this affair, but a
great deal more nraise. At the timi
,of his charge, July 2, 1S98, however.

the man who waited for orders that

vance that swept over Kettle hill and
then up the slope of San Juan, under
a galling fire.
The war over, the Rough Riders re
turned to the United States on Aug.
15. 1898, landin gat Montauk Point.
They were greeted as the heroes of the
campaign and Roosevelt, their leader,
was hailed as a popular idol.
Nominated For Governor.
On September 27 of the same year
he was nominated for governor of
New York state on the Republican
ticket, and in the election in Novem
ber he won his fight hands down. His
tenure of office was one of the most
memorable in tlie annals of the state

During his term of office he advocated

Roosevelt saw through this ruse and
time and again announced that "under
no circumstances" would he accept the
office. In the national convention hall
in 1900, however, popular sentiment
proved too strong and he was given
the second position on the Republican
ticket by acclamation. The assassina
tion of president McKinley followed on
Sept. 6, 1901, and Roosevelt, the man
who was supposed to be politically
burled, stepped into the chair of the
chief executive of the United States.
There has been both criticism and
praise for the two Roosevelt adminis
trations. But there can "be no doubt
of his cogent generalship of a difficult
Hardly had he taken his seat as
president at the white house, when
the coal strike threatened the welfare
of the country. Roosevelt Inaugurated
an arbitration commission that finally
succeeded in settling that industrial
revolt on Oct. 15. 1902.
Another notable achievement of the
Roosevelt administration was the clar
ification of the railroad situation
through the passage, in the 57th con
gress, of the Hepburn rate law. Otter
railroad legislation under the Roose
velt regime was the safety appliance
law, the employers' liability law and
the law limiting the hours of labor of
His prosecution of the Northern Se
curities company was another act that
brought wide publicity and attention to
his administration. In this prosecu
tion the bitterest vituperations were
vented against Roosevelt by men of
wealth throughout the country. Thev
claimed that his endeavor to dissolve
the great holding company was a blow
at "the financial saiety of the nation."
The supreme court upheld the govern
ment's action, however, and the prose
cution of this case has since come to
be viewed as one of the greatest
achievements of the Roosevelt tenure
The Hay-Herran treaty, which made
the Panama canal possible of construc
tion by the United States, is another
much attacked act of the Roosevelt ad
ministration. It has been claimed that
without his cognizanec and help, the
revolution that resulted in the inde
pendence of Panama could not have
been engineered. It is generally con
ceded, however, that Roosevelt was en
tirely innocent of this charge, and sus
picion has even been extended toward
the French company, who was also
bidding for the honor of constructing
the great witch, as a possible insti
gator of the imbroglio. "
Increases Naval Strength.
Roosevelt's attention to the army and
navy resulted in the establishment of
a program that practically doublfd the
strength of the water forces of the
United States. He supplemented this
achievent by an active Interest in the
act that incorporated the national
guard as a part of the national forces.
Though president McKinley had
paved the way for the transfer of ad
ministrative power in the Philippines
from the. m'ltary to civilians, it was
under the rule of Rosevelt that this
change actually took place. In addi
tion to this move, Porto Rico became a
territory of the United States, and the
government of Cuba was returned to
tne Cubans vvhiit he was in office.
The presentation of the Nobel peace
prize to Theodore Roosevelt in 1906 un
covers another act of preeminent and
worldwide Importance which was per
formed during his administration. The
peace prize was awarded him because
of his activities in bringing together
the representatives of Japan and Rus
sia at Portsmouth. This meeting be
tween the warring factions resulted in
the cessation of hostilities In Man
churia. It was also at the instigation of
Roosevelt that the European powers
were goaded Into action that led to the
resumption of the Hague conference in
1905. This body had fallen Into dis
repute through the Russo-Japanese
struggle, but interest was renewed
through invitations issued by the Unit
ed States for another meeting. These
invitations were later recalled and the
conference convened at the Invitation
of Russia. It was the United States
tender, however that set the matter
again before the international public.
Establishes New Departments.
But if Roosevelt's activities in mat
ter relating to foreign matters were
great his activities In regard to in
ternal pioblpms were still greater The
department of comtm n-e and labor
came Into bejng during his administra
tion. The activities of the department
of agriculture were greatly broaueneu.
Conservation projects were esiao
lished. The- pure food law was en
acted. The bureau of corporations was
born to the new department 01 w"
merce and labor. The postoffice de
partment widened its range of service
through the extension of the rural tree
delivery, and the establishment of two
cent postage between the United' fatates
and several foreign countries.
Beside these important matters, tne
interstate commerce commission s scope
was widened throXigh the enactment 01
the Hepburn rate law. A uniform sys
tem of accounting, with a great meas
ure of publicity was provided and im
posed on interstate carriers. He also
established many important commis
sions to investigate the moneyed in
terests and Instituted a number 01
suits against large business combina
tions for an alleged violation of the
Sherman anti-trust law.
It was following the announcement
of his reelection in 1904 that Col. Roose
velt made his famous statement re
garding the third term.
The Third Term Announcement.
"I am d"eeply sensible of the honor
that hac hppn ilnnp nip." he said, "and
I shall try to show my gratification by
a wise and just administration. On
March 4th next I shall have completed
three years and a half as president of
the United States and I shall regard
that three years and a half as my first
term. The wise custom which limits
the president to two terms regards the
substance and not the form: and under
'no circumstances will I be a candidate
for or accept another nomination
It has been since said that Roosevelt
has broken this pledge in seeking the
present nomination, though there are
others who maintain that as he made
no definite reference to the time at
which he would accept or seek a third
nomination, his declaration bad refer
ence to a third consecutive term.
In any event he accepted a position
as contributing editor of the Outlook,
after laboring manfully for the elec
tion of his then friend and companion,
William Howard Taft. and set about
preparing for the African hunting ex
pedition which he had arranged to ex
ecute for the Smithsonian institute at
Become Mighty Hunter.

th greater portion of the years of
1909 and 1910. and was followed bv a

Mr. Roosevelt almost immediately
took up his duties of contributing edi

lent topics wth an enthusiasm that
rivaled his vigorous statements while
he was president. It was through these
editorials that he later attacked the
proposed reciprocity agreement and

The nomination of a governor for
the state of New York came up for
consideration in 1910. and Roosevelt,
hardly grown accustomed to his daily

to Saratoga, stampeded the Republican

oblivion. He refused to discuss the
political situation other than through
ins publication, and terminated his ca

Breaks "With Taft.
As 1911 drew to a close, however, it
became more and more evident that he
was dissatisfied with the Taft adminis
tration. He attacked the reciprocity
agreement and the peace treaties vig
orously an action that resulted In
a breach of the intimacy between him
self and his erstwhile friend, president
This breach led to much talk of his
views on a renomination. His old
statement positively stating that he
would not be a candidate or accept an
other nomination was raked up and his
position in the great fight to be staged
111 1912 became a burning question.
The first intimation of the landslide
in favor of the colonel came with the
open declaration of seven western gov
ernors that Roosevelt alone could bo

that led to his open announcement that
he would again be a candidate.
