Park Commission er Kean has his way. , At today's meeting of the board, Secretary Gower announced that be could get an automobile for $1,300 that could be used as m sightseeing bus, and as an auxil iary truck. "We have plenty of teams out at tlie park for the rough work, ami i don't approve of buying an auto truck this year," declared Kern.

Navel Reserve Now 303 WASHINGTON, 1). C., Feb. It, —Roosevelt will run anyway. A trip to New York before Roosevelt left for the West Indies has convinced me of this much. George W. Perkins thinks so, too. I had a long talk with Perkins. He thinks Roosevelt can win even ■In a three-cornered fight; so, as T.

Symptoms in Ma—aim setts point strongly that way Wben Bird, Gushing and August' Gardner can get together oi Roosevelt, there Is little of tin chicken left for Crane and Week: and the Shoe Machinery Trust hardly anything exrept the MCfc and the feet, as it were. Other states, Perkins thinks, are likely soon to follow Massa chusetts, and he says It would not be surprising if it were .ill over but the shouting by June 7. • • • Hunt Hard For Damaging Facts The hearings on the subject of Louis D.
