     HOWEVER sincere may be the intentions of President Roosevelt to carry out the McKinley policy, he is going to find rough sailing after the respect for the late president’s memory fades out of political affairs. Roosevelt was nominated for vice president in 1900 to satisfy an element in the republican [sic] party which was not in love with McKinley. These friends are almost certain to assert themselves when the time comes. Furthermore, it is suspected by many that Roosevelt will not be hard to pursuade [sic], because he and the late president were men of entirely different temperaments, different political schools, belonged to different factions of the party. Roosevelt hastened to make the pledge as he did, for a good and sufficient reason; viz., to settle whatever restleness [sic] might arise in commercial affairs on account of McKinley’s death. The pledge had the desired effect, and after all excitement has died down we shall see what we shall se [sic].
