Says Country Will Be Too Hot to
Hold Oil King Soon.
New York, Aug. 11. The World
this morning prints an interview
with Frank .Rockefeller in which
he says they have kept secret for
a year and a half his written state
ment, under agreement with Mr.
"My father is alive and well,"
H.iid Mr. Rockefeller. "He is de-
nendent upon no man. He would
scorn the proffer of financial aid
from John D., and woul? not take
it from me. He has mt'! ''" pie
own ample for all his neslU?' Hut
there is a reason why I cannot, at
this time, tell you where he is. In
a few months I will be ready to
loll you a story that will amaze
and horrify the whole world. ,
'"No one yet knows that I am
writing the story, the real history
of John D.'s life.
"Yes," he continued, "when I
make John D.'s true life history
public and explain the facts about
father this country will be too
warm for its richest citizen.
" Go ask John D. wher9 our
father is; tell him that I sent you
and that I dare him to answer. j
"But the time will soon come
when I can safely speak. Then it
will not be safe for John D. to
appear upon the streets of any
American City. He would be
stoned by the people.
"Nothing but flight from the
country to some foreign land will
save his life when the whole mons
trous truth is known.
" Strange talk for a brother,
isn't it?" asked Frank Rockefeller,
pausing. "Terrible talk from one
brother about another, but what I
say is literally true.
"John D. is not a human being.
He is a monster; merciless in his
greed; pitiless in his cold, inhu
man passions."
Urged again to make the facts
public, Mr. Rockefeller said:
"I delay because I do not wish
to injure my brother William. He
was always nice to me and I will
spare him if 1 can."
"How is he interested save senti
mentally in any exposure of John
D?" was asked.
"Easily answered," replied Mr.
Rockefeller. "William's fortune
is blended with John D. in all his
vast enterprise. William always
obeyed John in everything, and
his millions have gone where John
directed. Now, when I tear the
mask away, there is sure to be
serious trouble in many quarters
jonn u. once a luguive irom a
nation's hate, will no longer be
able to hold up certain schemes
in which William has poured his
wealth. I am going to eive Wil
liam a chance to get out of danger.
Twenty-nine million pluoklets! If 1
had Such a pile,
1 could pack up my trunklets and go
away awhile.
That much would tide me over down
by the ocean's shore,
And let me live in clover for seven
days or more.
Twenty-nine million plunkletsl If I
possessed that sum, .
I could buy several chunklets of sirloin
steak, I vum!
I could eat peaches weekly whilst sum

Autumn would hit me bleakly and

This Question Now Bothering the
Minds of Many.
Washington, D. C, Aug. 11.
The question most frequently put
to the Washington correspondent
by the visitor to the National Cap
ital whom he meets is:
"Will Roosevelt be the candidate
The correspondent, however
much he may desire to pose as a
know-all, has to dodge and hedge.
Everybody is doing the same thing.
It is positive that several of the
Republican aspirants for the Re
publican nomination are wrestling
with the question as to Mr. Roose
velt's ambitions. Secretary Taft
does not know certainly that his
chief will not consent to accept the
nomination before the convention
assembles. Secretary Cortelyou,
who is taking his own candidacy
with the utmost seriousness, does
not know. Secretary Taft told a
caller a short time ago that he did
not know whether President Roose
velt could be induced to accept the
nomination, and intimated that he
should like to have some absolute
information on the subject.
At least one of the Republican
possibilities, with President Roose
velt out of the way, believes there
is no doubt of the renomination of
the present occupant of the White
House. That is Secretary Shaw,
who, this time last year, was care
fully nursing what he believed to
be a most promising Presidential
boom, which has since dropped
and died, and he has left the posi
tion of Secretary of the Treasury
to take the place of head of a great
trust company in New York., ,
A close friend of Mr. Shaw who
called to see him in his New York
office a few days ago, says the
former Secretary has n o t t h e
slightest doubt concerning the
trend of the President's ambitions.
''Of course Roosevelt is a can
didate," Mr. Shaw is quoted as
having remarked. "There was
time when I did not believe he
would allow the use of his name.
That was some time ago. I have
not thought that way for a consid
erable period. He wants the nomi
nation and will get it."
There is little or no doubt that
Mr. Shaw made the remarks at
tributed to him. It would be in
teresting to know, whether a reali
zation of the ambitions of Mr.
Roosevelt caused the then Secre
tary of the Treasury to abandon
Presidential aspirations.
The question as to whether Pres
ident Roosevelt would accept the
nomination if tendered, it is not
yet answered. It is impossible to
answer it absolutely either affirm
atively or negatively. But the
fact remains that the great major
ity of the Republican office holders
in Washington believe that they
will have to support Mr. Roose
velt next year. It is a significant
fact that many Republican politi
cians out of office have recently
begun to believe Mr. Roosevelt
will be nominated again. Only
to-day an Indiana Republican, who
is very close in several ways to the
Hon. Charles Warren Fairbanks,
expressed the opinion that every
other aspirant had as well clear
out of the field, that Mr. Roosevelt
was already as good as elected. It
is practically conceded he cannot
carry Indiana.
Republicans are claiming that
Mr.. Roosevelt could get several
Southern States. They claim he
could carry Missouri, as he did in
1904; that he could carry Mary
land, where he got one electoral
vote in 1904; that he could carry
Tennessee, where there is a strong
sentiment for him, and Georgia,
where Col. John Temple Graves
has been whooping Roosevelt for
a year or more. Arkansas is also
being counted on to cast its elec
toral vote for Roosevelt by those
who want a third term.
Of course, persons familiar with
political sentiment in the Southern
States I have mentioned, know that
it is impossible for a Republican
candidate for the Presidency to
carry them. Missouri gave ber
vote to Mr. Roosevelt three years
ago because the Democrats of that
State refused to support Mr. Park
er, and would not go to the polls
owing to their firm belief that
trickery had secured the nomina
tion of the New Yorker. But it is
admitted that had Mr. Bryan been
the candidate, the Democrats would
have swept the State by a large
majority. , ;
It is doubtful, however, whether
the nomination of Mr. Bryan
would strengthen the party in the
other States of the South which
the Republicans claim are doubtful.
But there is not the smallest shadow
of doubt in the minds of Demo
crats from those States with whom
I have talked in the course of the
past few weeks, concerning the
ability of a respectable Democrat
carrying every Southern State
over Mr. Roosevelt or any other
man whom the Republicans may
name. In Maryland it is claimed
that he could not get even one
electoral vote were the election to
be held to-morrow.
But Democrats would do well
not to count too strongly upon the
waning of the popularity of Presi
dent Roosevelt. He is not popu
lar now with the insurance com
panies and other corporations who
helped elect him in 1904, and he
has lost much of the popularity he
eajoyed soon after that election
among many thinking people who
have realized that he is great in
promise and small in performance,
but there is no doubting the state-

ment so often made that Presiden
Roosevelt is still popular with a
large class of Democrats, who take
him on promise alone. Whether
that popularity is strong enough
to make a large proportion of the
masses of the Democratic party in
any Southern State break away
from Democratic traditions and
vote for the Republican nominee
should he be Theodore Roosevelt,
no man can say. The fact should
not be overlooked that the negroes
are apparently ready to line up in
opposition to Mr. Roosevelt should
he be the candidate again.
"No Man Can Defy His Party"
Chicago, Aug. 10. The follow
ing conversation took place recent
ly in Washington upon the second
visit of Gov. Deneen, of Illinois,
to the President:
President Roosevelt" Will Illi
nois be for Taft?"
Governor Deneen "No.!'
President "Why not?"
Governor " Well, we prefer
some one else."
President "Who, Cannon ?"
Governor "I did not have him
in mind." :
President "Then whom do you
refer to?"
Governor "That is a delicato
question, but"
President, interruptin g
Governor "His name is Roose
velt." President (smiling broadly)
"But I am not a candidate, and
have said so repeatedly."
Governor "Of coarse, we llli-
noisans know that, but let me ask
you a question: 'What would you
do if the national convention, in
your absence, should nominate you
despite your expressed wish?' "
President "No man, Governor
Deneen, is so big that he can defy
his party."
