Sandusky Star Journal, The (Newspaper) - December 23, 1911, Sandusky, Ohio THE HOME PAPER THE 1 r TODAY'S NEWS TODAY SANDUSKY STAR-JOURNAL. FORTY-FIFTH DECEMBER LAST EDITION NUMBER 64 Followers Expect That He Demonstrate His Right To Progressive Leadership. WATCHING WITH HOPE OF A BIG FROST Houser Issues Statement In- tended To Allay Interest in The Roosevelt IF THEY GO MY HIGHER D. Dec. That Senator LaFolIette and his backers who are prepared in in- vade Ohio as the leader and sup- porters of tiie progressives are in no mood to be side-tracked for the iRoosevelt boom in that is indicated by the militant prepara- tions which are going on in the LaFolIette camp here. There will be nothing pacific in the speeches of the who is not only prepared to attack the acts of President Tat't of the past but also the two recent messages on. thu wool tariff and the monetary but to further his own interests as the to lead the progressive republicans out of the wilderness. To emphasize the fact that LaFol- Iette does not expect to he dropped as the candidate for the lepuMcan nom- ination and to show that there has been no weakening of his boom W. L. manager of his campaign has issued a statement in which it is in- cQcaTed-that'his followers expect the developments of the week in Ohio to place him in a position where the pro- gressives cannot afford to drop him even for and it is hoped that the showing madia will put a si- lencer on those who are trying to bring the Roosevelt boom to the fore. It is agreed generally that the result of the invasion of Ohio will either make or break the boom. If the meetings fall flat it will be her- alded far and wide by the Tat't back- ers as a blow to the entire progres- j sive effort to put the president out of -the running for renomination. At the same time it will be taken up by the Rooseevlt backers to urge him forward as the only possible progressive who can win. It will effectually put La Follette out of the running if he fails and will force the fight to a point where it is between Taf t and for the republican nomiuaUon. In his statement Houser have been published reports carrying the it not indeed the direct that Senator La Follette would be dropped as the candidate of the progressives for president. Thene is not the slightest foundation for these reports. Senator La Follette's candidacy was never so strong as at the present time. He will be supported by the republicans who desire to win in 1912. within the next few weeks will show beyond question that there is good reason to predict his nomination onoe for let it be known that he will be supported by the aggressive republicans of the progressive organization until the moment the campaign closes. Neither he nor his friend are quit- ters. And there is no reason for quit- ting. On the there is every reason for redoubling our be- cause of the certainty of winning the fight. The use of misleading reports is characteristic of a dying the swan song. The rapid growth of the LaFolIette campaign is itself an answer to the latest Huron County Progressives. Dec. a big meeting here this the Hur- on County Progressive Republican league was organized This organiza- tion will have charge of the LaFolIette meeting here next week.

There will be strong resistance in congress to the treasury depart- ment's plan of reorganizing the customs which contem- plates tjie abolishment of the San- dusky customs among many and making it a branch of the Cincinnati office. Senators and representatives are becoming very much aroused over attempts to close up offices in their states and districts and it will be next to impossible to get the legislation through While the Sandusky office is includ- ed among those to be it is not to be classed with many others in the list for the reason that it is now more than self-suporting. This fact means strong opposition to the bill. In preparing the Chairman of the committee on expenditures in the treasury was famish- ed all available facts and figures by of- ficials of the department. Some decid- edly bad conditions were diswnered. The most that Secretary MacVeagb. expects at this session is to secure leg- islation which will get the customs service away from the pork-barrel bas- is it always has occupied. If he can bring about the recognition of the bus- iness principle in customs administra- tion he will depend upon later con- gresses to perfect the legislation. The information furnished to Mr. which will be used as ammuni- tion in fighting for the reorganization will show that the whole customs service is honeycombed with ridiculous violations of business jriEeiples th-Eaaiatenanee of cus- toms offices at large expense where the receipts are very if anything.
