wisdom of Vice announcement at bis candidacy for the Presidential nom ¬ ination In 1901 It must be acknowledg ed that he is beginning his campaign in a somewhat force manner Roosevelts greatest strcnth is in the Wet He makes no very potent ap peal to the voters of the Eastern States and even in New York his own State he is opposed by his partys ma chine If he depended on New York to suggest and compel his nomination for the Presidency in the next Repuo Bean National Convention he wonld be betrayed to defeat It is only by means of pressure from the West where he is most popular that he

States will make good fighting ground for Roosevelt The Rapublicaos of that State are already resentful of President McKinleys Interference in their Senatorial conflict Governor Yates has come out openly against the administration candidate for Senator former comptroller Dawes and the Yates machine is now in opposition to the McKinley machine in Illinois Yates has also placed himself on record as being unequivocally for Roosevelt in 1904 This will be a good and strong fight for Yates to makeas full of promise for his dominance in Illinois politics as it Is for Roosevelts candi ¬ dacy for the Presidential nomination The RooseveltYates alliance is likely to be formidable The peril to Roosevelt lies in the pre ¬ mature unmasking of his plans His candidacy now openly aligns him against
