Gt Informal Reception at
Harper This Evening.
T am sure I am meeting with the
moat cordial reception by republicans
as wall as democrats throughout the
state in my canvass," said Hon. Sam
uel Alschuler of Aurora, candidate for
the democratic gubernatorial nomina
tion, this morning on his arrival in the
city from Freeport. Mr. Alschuler had
been asked how he was impressed with
his campaign so far as he had gone.
"I am not making any rash predic
tions as to the result of my own ef
forts, but I feel reasonably confident
that I will be nominated.!' he contin
ued, "and there is a whole lot of en
couragement in that, because I candid
ly believe the democratic nominee will
be the next governor of Illinois. This
is the conclusion I reach from observa
tions and assurances in my travels.
OLD FRIEXDS ARE LOYAL.
"As for myself, I find my old friends
of my former campaign still loyal to
me, and this is certainly gratifying. It
would be gratifying If I were not a can
didate, for aftrr all the thing that a
man prizes most highly in this world
is his friendships and his friends. In
these days when, unfortunately, so
much bitterness cf feeling has arisen
among rivals in the game cf politics,
representatives of different political par
ties, and within the ranks of the great
parties as well, it is refreshing to fee
that you have your friends of old, and
to know that they still believe in you
and stand by you.
"We in the democratic party in Illi
nois are fortunate in being free from
the IntniBo animosities that do exist, to
an extent at least, on the other side
Between the other candidates for the
democratic nomination for governor
and myself only the best of feeling ex
let. We are friends. We are all after
the same Job, so to speak, but we are
not hammering each other to get it.
Each man is out for himself, and may
the winner win."

Mr. Alschuler made a most remarka
ble run on the occasion of his former
campaign for novorcor. That was in
1900, when he ran 30.0(H) ahead of his
ticket in the tate. In the city of Chi

than have been cast for any other dem

distinct advantages. They maintain
that, having made the race at a time
when democratic prospects were not
the brightest in the state and made
such a remarkable showing then,
he is entitled to consideration at
a time like the present when the nom
ination carries with it reasonable as
surance of election. On the question of
fitness there is no dispute. Republi
cans and democrats alike concede this.
No man stands higher in the public re
gard, both as it involves ability and
integrity, than Sam Alschuler.
INFORMAL RECEPTION TONIGHT.
Mr. Alschuler was met at the Mil
waukee station by a number of per
sonal friends on his arrival shortly be
fore noon, and was escorted to the
Rock Island club. Early this after
noon he made a number of calls on per
sonal friends In the city, and thee
hurried away to Moline in an automo
bile. There he is spending the after
noon, and will return to Rock Island
later, and at 7:30 this evening will
held an Informal reception In the lobby
of the New Harper, where he will be
happy to receive the citizens of Rock
Island, irrespective of politics.
While Mr. Alschuler is not here for
speech-making purposes, it la thought
he may be prevailed upon to make
few brief remarks on state politics
during the course of the evening.

He will tell the country Just where

If nominated, he will make his fight
from his Columbus platform.
Can Roosevelt "come back?" Who

all of the central and southern states
with a view to learning the sentiment
of the people, and to present in suc

from a study or popular opinion.
To get back to Columbus, the crowd

Ohio republicans are today divided
into three camps. President Taft s
supporters, who include federal neph
ews and most local organizations;
Roosevelt boomers, rather hard Just
now to classify; and radical progres
sives, who refuse to Join the Roosevelt
cause. There are many of these La
Follette men, who still feel unrecon
ciled. Walter Brown, republican organiza
tion leader of Toledo and chairman of
the state central committee, is is
charge of the Roosevelt boom In the
state. He has never been known here
tofore as a progressive. Neither baa
doubtedly many thousands of republi
can voters have not yet concluded
which candidate they favor.
Governor Harmon seemed also cer
tain of a solid Ohio delegation to the
democratic convention at Baltimore
until a few days ago. When he op
posed the initiative and referendum in
a speech before the constitutional con
ventlon, a majority of whose members
bad been elected on I. and R. pledges,
he provoked a storm among so-called
progressive democrats. Wood row Wil
son is acordingly likely to have some
of the Ohio votes on the first ballot.
Ed. H. Mrse, Harmon's state cam
paign manager, is doing his best to
put down the uprising.
At this time, to Judge from reports
from the country at large, Taft. will
be renominated through the advan

sentiment develops into a Roosevelt
stampede which is not impossible.
On the democratic aide, it will be a
case of the allies against Wood row
Wilson. The latter will be stronger
than any of his rivals, and will have
to run against the field.

One thing is pretty certain: Ohio
