Mr. Roosevelt, who had hurried back from Oyster Bay, after spending Sun day there, and following a week in which politicians of many grades, in cluding Governor tllasscock of West Virginia and Governor Stubbs of Kan sas, had called either at the Outlook office or when they chanced to catch the colonel at Sagamore Hill, found time to greet a considerable delega tion of Roosevelt boomers, including Governor Carey. Will Not Talk Politics. But while be enthused he would not talk about the day's grist in the po litical mill. Was Governor Carey's voice in the Wyoming wilderness like that of Stubbs in Kansas and Glass cock in West Virginia crying Roose velt for 1912? The colonel wouldn't •a.v. He would say that Governor Carey was a good Republican in spite of his Democratic backing and "what you might, call a progressive."

Twenty Progressive Republicans voted for the measure. Demanding an investigation into campaign expenditures in 1904 and 1908 Senator Culberson of Texas, in the senate, made sweeping charges of corruption against the Republican com mittees of those and other years. In directly he charged that foreign am bassadorships were bestowed as a re ward for campaign contributions and Inferential)}' he charged that former President Roosevelt had condoned the use of money in politics. Republican progressives from Minne sota, Iowa and the Northwest generally joined with the Democrats in the house and put through a proposition that William J. Bryan has advocated at every possible opportunity of late years. It provides for publicity of all endorsements for appointment of dis trict, circuit and supreme court judges. The defeat of the Lindbergh resolu tion providing for an investigation of the "money trust" is now assured in the committee of rules of the house, but the fight will be carried into a party caucus, where it threatens to wreck the harmony that has prevailed thus far under the leadership of Oscar W. Underwood of Alabama. Emphatic denial that the United States Steel corporation is a "monop oly" as charged was made to the Stan ley investigating committee of the house by President ,T. J. Farrell.

There will be no appropriations for battieships or public buildings at this session of congress. This was the de cision of the Democrats of the house after a spirited caucus. FOREIGN NEWS.
