New Men to the Front
A Democratic View of the New President’s Probable Policy.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 14.—Theodore Roosevelt’s accession
to the presidency primarily means two big political movements, declares the
Washington correspondent of the Chicago Chronicle.
Marw [sic] Hanna will be dethroned as the Warwick of the party and will become an ordinary senator with no more influence at the White House than any other senator and not half so much as many.
New York state will for the first time in years get ample political recognition at the hands of the president. Those who know Roosevelt best do not hesitate to say that he will devote the three years of his term to building up a machine for his renomination in 1904.
Every man appointed to a principal position by McKinley will at once resign. Roosevelt can accept or not as he chooses. He can hold the resignations as long as he wishes. There is good warrant for saying that what he will do will be to ally himself at once with Senator Platt and Senator Quay and make his appointments in a leisurely manner. The whole officeholding system of this country is studded with men from Ohio and men from Indiana. These states will not be so popular at the White House, for Hanna will be persona non grata there, and Fairbanks of Indiana is a presidential candidate himself.
