FORTY-FOURTH YEAR Many Think It Useless to At- tempt to Run Candidate for Nomination. LA FOLLETTE ENTERS THE RACE, HOWEVER Friends Claim He Is Already Assured of One Third of Delegates CLAIMS MUCH STRENGTH. WASHINGTON, June atop LaFollette today allowed the announcement to be made he is a candidate for the presi- dency. Friends who made the announcement declare LaFollette is already assured of one third of the delegates of the National Re- publican Convention. LaFollette himself will not issue his formal announcement until a little later but in the meantime his active campaign will be continued. rt WASHINGTON, June lead- ers of the insurgent wing of the repub- lican party are giving serious consid- eration to two proposed lines of con- duct: they will abandon the idea candidate tor the presi- dential nomination in opposition to W. H. Taft they will henceforth devote their efforts to trying to the insurgent, or progressive republican, representation in congress. The Irvel-headed members of the senato'-ial insurgent clan see that nothing can be gained bv chating pres- idential will o' the wisps and they be- lieve that if the insurgent propa- gandists proceed along that line they will accomplish nothing except to bring themselves and their movement into ridicule.

It is expected that Judge Goldsherry will be here Monday to deride the prejudice charge. That would give him two davs tc consider the charges. At all events, it is not believed there will be substantial delay in the Diegle case, scheduled to begin Monday. The affidavit filed by Diegle against Judge Kmkeiad has aroused some feeling among members of the Frank- lin count) bar and it, independent of the result in the present may result in tightening the lines on affi- davits against judges. In the present case the accepted view is that it was a move by the defense to get another judge whose lulings might be more fa-voiable to tihe defense. That it was a move to secure ac- quittal before trial in the detective- dictagraph case was another view taken.

Roosevelt intends to support Pres- ident Taft for i-piiomination and VP- electioii. Col Roosevelt's reasons for this, as explained bv himself, am two- fold: In the first place, he introduced Mr. Taft as a presidential possibility to the people in 1908 and stood sponsor for him. He feels that under the cir- cumstances, in the absence of any showing that the administration is not honest and efficient, he is morally obligated to support Mr. Taft again. In the second place he knows that if he does not support Taft a large ele- ment of the population of the country will jump to the conclusion that he Congressman Sharp, After Visit Home, Declares for Under- wood Measure. The vetoing of the Hudson good roads bill will not hurt him, accord- mg to reports that reach Columbus but in the determination to keep the tax limit within the one per cent, al- lowed by the Smith bill, he will make more votes than he will lose. It is also rather significent that he has kept out of the bribery cases so far called in court, and while he has done even thins: possible to 'bring the guilty to the bars of justice he has maintained a sphinx-like silence after the arrests were made, taking sides with neither faction. His board of control bill will help in future contests in Ohio, but won't be a very big card to play before the .na- tional gathering. -o to accept thp'renom- ination himself, which is absolutely contrary to the truth Without Roosevelt as an asspt and without money to finance an organiza- tion the insurgent anti-Taft movement finds itself in a hard row of stumps.

Big jFouf Man Denied Embez zlement and Jury Took His Word. CINCINNATI, June S. Oooke, charged with embezzaing 000 from the Big Four railroad in connection with the shortage of former Treasurer Chartes W. War- riner, was today found not guilty. The acquittal of Cook makes it certain that the mystery surrounding the embezzle- menitof Warriner will never be solved. Warriner himself was -convicted on a charge of merely embezzling and- it had been hoped that the trials of Cook and Mrs. Ford would show iwhat became of the big bulk of the money he embezzled but this they failed to do. Ttoe case was not argued before the jury. Cooke gave almost the entire testimony for his side. He denied entirely that he had ever stolen a dollar from the Big Four railroad or eomjuitted any dishonest act in his life. Cooke denied also that be was aware that Charles L. Warriner was Short that the of Frank Oomstock, Warriner's prede- ceaeor as Cincinnati treasurer of the road were not what they should have been, or that there was anj thing ir- regular in the conduct of the corpora- Bon.

From the moment left Detroit had been a gala trip for the Put-la Bay, despite the threatening weather and early rain. There was a, great demonstration when she arrived at Put-in Bay, where the new flags were presented. Tlv scenes were repeated upon arrival here. There was no formal program foe the gpseting in Sandusky. Officers and members of the Business Men's asso- ciation joined with the city officials n extending the welcome. Automobiles were in waiting to convey the distin- guished Detroit visitors about city, while the Sunyendeand club was .hrown open to them. When just off the Big Four dock, while hundreds eagerly awaited taa approach of the vessel, she went a- ground on the channel bank and waa delayed several minutes in landing, The tug Fairmount aided the new joat in getting off.
