Cannon a Candidate Again Danville, 111., Aug. the declaration of Congressman Long that he will not again vote for Joseph G. Cannon, for the speakership of the house of representatives, Mr. Gannon will continue the race accord ing to his own statement made to the Associated Press this evening. He will go into the caucus as a candidate, no matter how many congressmen -de- clare they will oppose his re-election. All he asks is that those who go into the caucus abide by its vote and he promises to do the same. He does not ask any man to pledge himself to vote for his re-election if he believes the pledge will work against him in the election this fall, nor does he want any candidate for the republican nom- nation for congress to repudiate his party by failure to enter the caucus. That Mr. Cannon was considerably an- noyed by the. dispatch from Beverly was apparent this afternoon when a opy of it was handed him. Mr. Can- today read and re-read .the Long- for Your Shoes' Sake, Use Dressings. threatened all day yesterday, seems to be safe. It is reported that Sal- test, in western Montana, is also out of danger, but 'this may prove a bit of over-confidence. The" towns of Taft, Deborgia, Henderson and the old .part of Strcgis are in ashes. The old placer town of Murray in Idaho j is in danger. The flames have the upper hand of the situation in a score of'places. Rain only salvation of hundreds of miles of timber, and many camps and small towns. Men have flames to the limit of human endurance, and are with- drawing from the' contest in many places. Especially is the situation oitc oiUUclblUJuL serious in the immensely timbered I ruins of one house two skulls, country along the lines of the Chi- cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul's west- ern extension.

These fires extend along an unbroken -line for more than fifty miles and are in dense timber.

There is no doubt that Cannon be- lieves the Longworth statement was inspired -by President Taft. Roosevelt 'May Run Again Oyster Bay, Aug, Roosevelt spent today in what was probably the most important political conference he has had since he left the White House. He gathered about'him a group of his close friends and talk- ed over with them the -situation, which is.feest expressed in the reports that relations .between President Taft and himself are strained to the breaking point From what was said after 'the con- ference it was gathered that Colonel Roosevelt believes the present atti- tude of men who are influential in the national administration is hostile to him and that an open rupture may result. In such case the colonel feels that he may foe compelled at some juncture to exert his influence against the administration. Joseph G. Cannon of Illinois will not again wield the gavel in the house of representatives. He is marked for po- litical destruction. "If the plans of the new leaders of do not fail R. A. Ballinger, secretary of the interior, will retire from Presi- dent Taft's cabinet shortly after the congressional investigating commit- tee reports next month. He is mark ed for destruction, and the end, it was said here tonight on good auth- already is in sight. It also became plain, as heretofore, expected, that Nelson W. Aldrich will not again be a candidate for the sen- ate from island. He, too, is set down by the leaders of the party as one who must go. The word went forth some time ago hat Mr. Aldrich must not Tonight it was.made known he would not run. He told .-the president so. Trimming the Republican Ship In the retirement-of.-Mr.. Ballinger, he elimination of Speaker Cannon, nd the withdrawal of Senator Aid- rich from public life, the leaders feel The congressional committee will have reported By that time, and the date is sufficiently early to take the 'so-called Ballinger issue out of the campaign. Blame Cannon for Kansas Speaker Cannon by his speeches in Kansas, some of those in touch with affairs declare, did much -to help the insurgents gain their victory. That fact perhaps was the last straw that determined those who are attempt- ing the rejuvenation of the party to tell Mr. Cannon, if he did not know- it already, that he must not run for speaker again. It is said on behalf of "Uncle Joe" he already, has told close friends that he not to be considered in the contest for the speakership should the next house go Republican. Representative MoKinley of Illinois, close frieud of Mr. Cannon and chair man of the Republican congressional ampaign committee, was asked here the other day if he thought "Uncle Joe" could he elected to the chair again. "I have not heard that will be a was the significant ply. The Cannon situation a thing of the future is a little difficult to handle" Once it is known thai the president would like to see a change, however, it is believed all doubt as to the re- sult would be removed.

They do hot say v Mr. Taf t lias tbeen 'responsible for all these acts, but they point with pride to the good ef- fect "they will have upon-the country. It is understood in Beverly -that in Mr. Ballinger, Speaker Cannon, and Senator Aldrich the insurgents found more material for 'their battles with the regulars than in anything .the Taft administration has done or failed to do. It is said in some quarters that tbe discouraging Kansas and Iowa are to be to the fact the insurgents harped much upon the connection between the j tion and these three men. j WithJJie active participation of the three in public affairs at an end.the party leaders say the insurgents will have not a leg left to stand upon and the Democrats will lose ground immediately. All Object to Elimination Neither Secretary Ballinger. Senator Aldrieh, nor Speaker Cannon found his elimination to: bis taste, it is said here. The senator announced Ms" re- tirement months ago, but for a time was a feeling he might run again if pressed to do so. Tbis is what the west thought, according to informa- tion that came to Beverly. And on that fact tbe west pondered much, not to the advantage of the Republi- can party. Secretary Ballinger always has de- clared he would not retire. But both he and Senator Aldrich were persuad- the, Republican bouse, i-i order is now generally admitted. 'The various moves are being made quietly but ef fectively.

One colt, which was landed for him yesterday, was so small that the men on the ship simply picked -it'- up and j carried it in their arms. Its mother, a tolack Shetland mare, resembled a. collie dog in size; and as the offspring was 'but five weeks old the statement by the officers of tbe ship that it could -be put into a market 'basket was scarcely an exaggeration. Though small, these animals which came yesterday were as troublesome as any which have been landed be- fore. When these -bits of horse flesh be-' came unruly in the (hold of the Mon-1 mouth the men engaged in off-load- ing them would simply form a ring about them and then close in upon them. One little 'beast got loose in the long, freight shed and began to bolt up and down the cement floor, pleased that 'he had escaped from rinement ;of the ship.
