GORMAN FWR PRESIDENT.
His Friends Thinks He is the Man to
The Washigton correspondent
of the News and Courier gives this
view of Senator Gorman as the
most available man for the Demo.
That Senator Gorian will be'
given the democratic nomination
for the Presidency is the firm be
lief of Represenitative Livingston,
of Georgia, who has been discuss
ing the outlook with Democrats
from all parts of the United States.
Mr. Livingston says that Senator
Gorman was much stronger 'i the
South, in his opinion, than any..
other Democrat. Thpre might be
a few localities in some of the
Southeril States where the prefer..
once at present was for some other
man, but he believed that before
the meeting of the convention the
Southern Stiates would b practi
cally united in the support of Mr.
Mr. Livingston said that his
talks with men from the North
and West convinced him that Mr.
Gorman's strength was not con
fined to the South alone, but that
he was regarded in other sections
of the country as the strongest
man that could be nominated. Mr.
Gorman is regarded in all. parts of t
the country. as a man on whom all y
elements of the Democratic party c
can unite. In the opinion of Mr.
Livingston he will poll the full
strength of the Democratic party if e
lie is nominated. Further than a
this there are evidences that lie '
would bring to the support of the
Democratic ticket certain elementa
of the Republican party that -ara
not satislied with Roosevelt'.
It has been apparent, almost
ever since Mr. Roosevelt suiceed- t
od to the Presidency, that certain 1
elements of the Republican party F
were very much dissatisfied with s
his course. While the party lead a
3rs all agree that lie must be re
aominated, with few exceptions 1
Lhey would scarcely like to see C
him replaced by some other man.
rhey realize however, that this
cannot be done, and whil" they
will acquiesce in his nomination,
their support of him in the cam
paign cannot be as hearty as it e
would be if some one more accept t
able to them were at the head of
the ticket. The anti-imperialists a
to a man are opposed to Mr. ~
Roosevelt. In the aggregate they a
make up a considerable cement in ,
the Republican party and the Dem- c
ouratic candidate can have their s
votes if he is not objectionable to i
them on other grounds.
Many of the conservative busi- i~
neSS mnen of the country are op- o
posed to Mr. Roosevelt. They.
are the mna whom the Republican h
party relied chiefly for its cam- a
paignl contributions. They did not si
like Mr. Roosevelts action in the c
uoal strike controversy, and they -
are afraid his head strong, Imnpetu
aus character may result in bring..
ing the United States into needless ti
3onflict with some foreign posver if L
lie should be elected to the P'resj.i
lency for four years more.
