Miles Compares It to San Juan Hill and Dec Urea the Colonel Will run for President. Minneapolis, June 4 The River of Doubt and the Charge of San Juan Hill bear the same rslative standing in the annals of truth, according to Gen. Nel son A. Milos. United States armv. retired, in an interview y 1 here. Gen. Miles said that Col. Roosevelt was not, in the battle with which his name has been linked, and also that the river which Col. Roosevelt savs he discovered is well known to all students of topography. "In my judgement nothing can prevent the republican party from rallying around Roosevelt the next time," said Gen. Miles.

Then he will go into the campaign and he will ride to a fall." ,4The River of Doubt is the last straw," says the General. "That" river was known on the mans of Brazil a century or longer. .
