Position Second In Importance Only
to the Presidency Not Aware
of Boom That Friends
Have Launched.
Tho nomination of Thcodoro Roose
velt for mayor of Now York City Is
proposed by Gonoral Stewart L.
Woodford, tho diplomatist nnd for
mor minister to Spain, In n state
ment Issued In Now York Saturday.
It Is admitted that tho "boom thus
launched has neither tho knowledgo
or tho consent of Mr. Roosevelt," but
it Is declnrcd that "an Insistent nnd
nnr.r.lmous demand on tho part of tho
people or tho city would compel him
to accept. "
General Woodford's statement Is
in part, as follows:
"If I had tho power to nomlnato
nnd elect tho next mayor of Now
York City, I should without n mo
ment's hesitation havo Thcodoro
Roosevolttho mayor. In dignity and
Importance the olllce ranks next to
tho presidency. Tho problem in city
government Is tho greatest problem
In tho community, and I am inclined
to think that 11 great and good mayor
of Now York could do more good
to tho entire country today than oven
tho president can.

knows tho city. By his peculiarly
direct and effective executive ability
ho scorns to bo the best man for
this groat civic trust and duty."
