schedules of the tariff tliat need revision badly and when they are re vised fully 80 per cent of the evils complainedofill be eliminated Another evidence of his conserva tism is that he believes tariff changes should be gradual wherever they can be made so in order that business may not receive too severe a shock He has a very good opinion of the sliiHng scale plan as applied to cer tain

1912 Nomination WASHINGTON Dec 9In the light of important political develop ments it is safe to make tile following prediction Theodore Roosevelt will not be a candidate for the Presidential norai nation and will not permit the use of his name but he will be a support or of Mr Taft anythoughtthe Presidential nomination in 1912 he has changed his mind He has himself rung down the Curtain on any movement of that kind It will become apparent in due sea son that Col Roosevelt has cast the die against his own nomination and that he is going to be one of the gettogether partyIleYork where he will work for a Taft delegation in 1912 This is the secret ofa mysterious stJrguardian of Mr Touts interests in anticipation of the national cam paignApubfishesof the campaign for control of Republican party in 1912 President Taft has won Wm Loeb Jr away from Col Roosevelt and that hereafter the collector of New York port will be the eye of the administra tion in looking after Mr Tafts in terests in New York The story wel on to state that this severance Mr Loeb from his former chief is the last straw in a permanent rup ifUnderby this story and in the interest of accuracy the White House gave a hunch which cleared up the Presi dential situation amazingly Wm Loeb Jr has not been torn away from Col Roosevelt by any threat of the administration by whose grace he holds office lie is the same staunch friend of Col Roosevelt always has been and by the lwI taken lie is an equally warm of President Taft The President and the former President are on the best of terms there is no animpsity between them they have been in constant cores spondencc of most intimate charge ter dealing with momentous events public questions both national and in ternational This correspondence has been espe cially brisk since congress recur vened and letters during part of that time have passed between the Presi dent and the Colonel as often as once a day Friends of the President said it was not of importance that this bill iiiAe g was that there was correspondence and lots of it Within the last few days they have exchanged the warmest Christmas greetings President Taft has decided somewhat reluctantly to stan for a renomination and there is cvi quartertlmtas its next standard bearer He does not intend to rely on a machine and patronage will not be used to bring about his renomination to the extent and in the way it gigs used to bring about his first nomination in 1908 As far as patronage is concerned the President within the last week ha s laid clown clear and strong and with emphasis not to be misunderstood the rule he intends to follow as long as he is President His policy is that a man who has made a good record in office shall not be removed DOES NOT KNOW NEW YORK Dec 29Col Theo Roosevelt has not declared for the nomination by the Republican party in 1912 of President William Howard Taft Roosevelt made this fact most emphatic at his office in the Outlook All of this talk about me supporting Mr Taft in 1912 is utterly absurd he said There has been nothing like that discussed by me with any one at anytime And so far as the statements are concerned that Collector Loeb has become a Taft lieutenant and will apportion patronage in New York for Mr Taft in order to secure the state delegation for the Presidents renom ination in 1912 I know nothing more of
