It has been many years since the republican party has been in the same position that it is at the .pre- sent time, and when one asks the question of who the leader of the party is in Ohio today, they must wait a long time for an answer. In- dications are that Oarmi Thompson, now assistant secretary of the inter- ior ij3 "coming and Granville Mooney even in spite of the fact that he asked for his railroad mileage wants to be the secretary of state. John L. Sullivan, former state print- er, but now an Ohio .editor is also going after that nomination, and while it seems a little early to make any predictions, there' is every in- dication that because the old party was completely "snowed under" two years ago there will be no absence of candidates when the next election rolls around. The announcement of the' probable candidacy of Foraker for governor has aroused unusual inter- est in the republican ranks and an early conference, between the former leader, and a number of state poli- ticians to be held in Columbus with- June When President Tart left Providenn-e.

He will also make it plain that he will veto anj tariff amendment tacked oato Canadian reciprocity bill. In spite of the tangled alignments of parties in the senate, -progress to- ward passing the reciprocity measure was made when Mr. Penrosc s-eeur-ec unanimous consent for a vote on the Root paper amendment Monday. The amendment Mr. Root himsel admits is doomed to defeat, but the actual vot3 will serve to clear the way for the kind of fighting the in surgents decide to make against the measure by way of other amend ments. They of filibustering but what they hope to gain by such tactics is nt.t apparent, and the gen- eral opinion is that after talking for home consumption, reciprocity will come to a vote not very mucli later than at first expected.

The his correspondence he is forced to politicians in the 13th congressional district realize Representative An- derson is one- of the strongest demo- crats in Ohio and that he will be ahle to carry his own district by such a large majority that he will not be a drug on the ticket. Instead they realize that his majority in his own district is likely to be so large that he will be able to carry along with him many of the weaker candidates for office. Congressman Anderson is not par- ticularly anxious, however, to again become a candidate for office. He IB more or less indifferent in the taiatter. When asked how stands in re- gard to becoming a candidate again for Representative Ander- employ several assistants whom he must, pay out of his own pocket. Not only that, but many of the dc-ruments i which his constituents request him to send to them, he is forced to pur- chase. One thing about Representa- tive Anderson is that he never refus- es a.ny requests of his constituents that is possible for 'bira to gratify. At the end of the year, however, this attitude of his totals to a pretty pen- ny, and all in all, his congressman's salary, per year, leaves him on the wrong side of the ledger be- cause of his solicitude for his constituents. An indirect blow was struck at J. Ogdea Armour and other -packers by Judge Kenesaw M. Landis, who abro- gated a rule of the United States district court which has been in force seventy years and which required the clerk of the court to furnish a list of grand jury witnesses to defend- ants. Testimony of Detective Not Shaken And His Past Can't Be Assailed TELLS HOW D1EGLE BECAME SUSPICIOUS Says Sanduskian Looked Un- der Bed in graph Evidence, COLUMBUS, 0., June trial of Rodney J. Diegle, sergeant- at-ams, was taken up today large- ly with a discussion of the man- ner in which the testimony se- cured by the dictagraph is to be used. It was finally decided that the stenographer who took down the conversations over the dicta- graph in which Diegle is said to -have solicited a bribe from Detec- tive Harrison, instead of testify- ing that "Diegle said" or "Harri- son will merely testify that "a voice said." This testimony will be introduced Monday. K. M.
