BROOKE FOR GOVERNOR It I Is Thought Senator Quay "May Sup- port Him for Pennsylvania's Executive. Specie'.-to Tke 'Neaijfork Times. WASHINGTON, May Quay to-day introduced In. the Senate a bill-, per- mitting the President to promote Major Gen. John R. Brooke to the rank of Lieu- tenant General and retire him. The Re- publican State Convention in Pennsylvania meets, on' June' 11, and the .politicians at once .saw in Mr. Quay's action an indica- tion1 -that Gen. Brooke might be the candi- date for Governor. Mr. Quay's candidate is supposed to be Judge supporters ot Attorney General Elkln have b'een making their fight strictly against that gentleman. A well-known Pennsylvania .Wash- ington said to-day, In discussing. Mr.-Quay's Brooke bill, that State Senator. Foulke, an Elkin man, yesterday offered to beta leader S5.000 that Judge -Pennypacker would not be Quay's candidate, and the Quay man refused to take the bet. Several Pennsylvania Congressmen are authority for the statement that the: President told them some time ago that he favored Gen.' Brooke for the'-T.bminatlon. Gen. Brooke would not .retire until July a month after .if the matter were left to the operation., of tha general retirement law. The Quay men are averse to, discussing- the matter, and their explanation of the Senator's action is that wants Gen; Brooke to have the rank of. Lieutenant- General when he retires.. Mr. Quay Has. done! one-or two things in connection with his bill that are rather, hard to explain unless, he Has a strong Interest in Gen. Brooke's position before the people. Most noticeable is his action In securing the-'printlng, as a mis- cellaneous document, of a .transcript of 'Gen. Brooke's military record. .The usual- course, when a "bill for .the retirement of .an officer is presented, print his rec- ord.' If Mr. Quay designed to nominate Brooke for Governor of Pennsylvania and. were: anxious to secure some effective campaign literature, he could not get a better docu- ment than the three pages of typewriting which he hasyhad' s'ent to tho Government Printing Office to be made into.a pam- phlet. Of course, this transcript of his record would -go before .the anyway: but :it is Senator Quay'.s unusual action in having it printed which arouses curiosity.

Lord Kitchener, although he le still full, of energy, is much aged in appearance as a result of the severe and continuous strain which he has undergone.. .The con- sensus of opinion is that the. recent nego-. tlatlon's hare proved Lord Kitchener to be a great diplomatist as well as a great soldier. It is difficult to appreciate the magnitude of the difficulties Lord Kitchener, has Ihad to contend with. The Boer leaders are all deeply impressed with his personality, and jtrust.liim Implicitly.
