First Circular for Nomination Reaches
The first effect of the Roosevelt
Third Term National league's work
In trying to force President Roosevelt
to again become a candidate for the
office which ho now holds , reached
Norfolk yesterday when newspapers
received circulars now being sent out
for the first time. Edward A. Homer ,
said to bo a democrat from Colorado ,
is president and E. C. Hayek secretary
of the league. They have opened an
office In the Tribune building , Chica
go. Following is the circular received
We , the members of the Roosevelt
Third Term National league , having
at heart the great and political prob
lems now confronting the people , and
In order that the rights of the masses
he protected and that national har
mony bo preserved , ncem It Impera
tive that Theodore Roosevelt bo reelected -
elected to the presidency In 1908.
Wo have come upon days In our
social and political life , fermenting
with distrust and requiring firm con
trol.Wo view with alarm the evils al
ready grown from the abuse of cor
porate power and see In these evils
n fertile Held for the demagogue , from
which might spring a political and
social revolution , and believe that
nothing short of temperate and prayerful -
orful solicitude , on the part of the
people , will hold our political and
social structure Intact.
To the people Irrespective of party
lines Is duo the credit that their presl
dent , today , Is Theodore Roosevelt ,
, A now era of real freedom and vitality
In our Institutions of government and
politics was demanded , and they wise
ly saw in him n means to attain It.
So valiantly and wholeheartedly has
this man rellccted the wishes of the
people , that his personality has en
tered Into and become a part of every
department of our national life.
Ho has won the confidence of the
people ; and this fact alone , makes
ilm the most potent factor in the so-
lutloit of the present disturbing con-
lltlons. To eliminate this personality
which Is to eliminate that confi-
lence at a time when the people , as
i whole , are restive and trembling
tvlth apprehension , is to Invite nation
al disorder ,
So closely woven Is this bond be
tween the president and the people ,
[ hat he has become to thorn n public
necessity , an essential part of things
In the Social and political fabric.
Therefore , Theodore Roosevelt Is not
only the one logical candidate for
lomlnnllon , but manifestly Is the only
oglcal president for the people.
Already has it been demonstrated
that the frightened and vengeful
ivcalth controlling forces of the conn-
ry , will resort to any menus to de
feat his nomination for a presidential
third term. We , therefore , must bo
in the alert and quick to action if
wo would save that which has al
ready been accomplished by our Illus
We are not unmindful of the fact
that Theodore Roosevelt himself In
1901 , said , "under no circumstances
would he be a candidate for , or , would
ic accept another nomination. "
We challenge , however , his right to
refuse to accept the presidency of
Lhe United States for a third term ,
in the face of the people's demand ,
especially at a time when so many
mdertahings of the highest Im
portance have been brought about
ind set in motion by him , and so sub
ject them to the danger of an untried
and unproved successor , to whom pub
ic confidence would be reluctantly
extended , if at all.
Manifestly , the selection of Its
[ iresldcnt lests with the people. The
public , alone , is Judge. No man may
say he will not accept. It is not the
province of Theodore Roosevelt to
say he will or will not bo the presi-
ilenf. He , who acts as president , nets
solely as a servant of the people , and
when called by them , must come.
Wo further hold , that in point of
'act his re-election In 1908 would not
constitute a third term. Ho has been
lectod to the presidency but once.
Inasmuch , however , as the Issue has
been so generally' spoken of as a
: hlrd term , the league has adopted the
We , therefore , In the Inlcrost of
mblic welfare , demand that Theodore
Roosevelt bo nominated for the presi
dency and bo re-elected in 1908 , and
to that end hereby pledge our support.

The Face on Our One-Cent Piece.
It is usually assumed that the face
on the head side of the copper Is that
of an Indian. But n close look will re
veal a Saxon profile. Just borrow a
cent and look at It. The setting is that
of an Indian ;
Between 1828 and 1840 James Bar
ton Ixmgacre was chief engraver In
the United States mint in Philadelphia.
In 1835 a competition was opened for
sketches and engravings for the new
coper cent that was to bo Issued , and
which has since been In service.
There were over a thousand designs
offered. The prize was a good one.
Longacre racked his brain for some
original and singular design that would
strike the Judges , but for months he
failed to satisfy himself.
One morning a number of Indians
with their chief , who had been to pay
their respects to the great white chief
In Washington , cnmo to the city and
were shown through the mint. They
were Introduced to the white chief's
picture maker , who was Just then
showing his young daughter Sarah the
great concern. The chief was attract
ed by the sweet-faced maiden and her
Interest In his feathers and paint. She
childishly wondered how she would
look In that wild headgear. This was
told the chief , who solemnly divested
himself of his feathers and had them
placed on the girl's head. The effect
was so striking that the father took
time to make a sketch of the picture ,
finishing It afterward for his own
At the last moment of the period
given for sending In engravings he be
thought himself of the possibility of
the combination of Indian feathers and
Saxon sweetness. Ho got It in ; and
much sport was mode of the child at
the time In the city because of the In
cldont. The sketch passed through
the seventh sifting and finally reached
the last round. By one vote it was
won ; and over since Sarah Longacro's
young face has served for the hum
blest of coins , than which no single
coin In the world has such tremendous
circulation. Detroit News-Tribune.

THE HUSE PUBLISHING COMPANY
A. B. BEALL SELLS THE THEATER
An Effort Will be Made to Bring to
Norfolk n Class of Theatrical Attrac
tions Worthy of the City's Support
and Confidence ,
The Norfolk Auditorium wan sold
Into last night by A. 11. Boull of Sioux
City to the UIIHO Publishing company
of Norfolk. The change In ownership
will become effective the first of I ho
Mr. lleall , who has owned the then-
lor for several years , had boon anxious
to dispose of It for some time and ho
came to Norfolk yesterday to either
sell or close up the house. Tills an
nouncement suggested the purchase
to the new owners , by reason of the
fact that I ho Auditorium adjoins The
Dally News building on the north , half
of the north wall of The News buildIng -
Ing having been donated toward the
building of the theater originally.
H was thought that Norfolk would
support her theater if the right sort
of shows were booked and at the
right prices , and therefore It was de
termined to make an effort to success-
cully operate the institution and to try
to fill a theatrical demand which it Is
believed exists here. While there has
licon no time for the framing of a
definite policy , It may lie stated that
in effort will bo made to bring theat
rical attractions to Norfolk worthy of
Lho support of tills city in every way.
The aim will bo to so scale the pric
es on shows coming to Norfolk In such
v way that the public may judge for
Itself what class of show it Is to see.
An effort will be made to gain and
nalntnln public confidence to such an
extent that when the highest seats are
marked at $1.50 the public may In
stantly know that an attraction of the
very highest order , of absolutely first
quality , Is to bo presented. For popu-
ar prices the public , It Is hoped , may
earn to know that popular priced at
tractions , clean , wholesome and worth
.he money , have been booked.
It Is believed that the people of Nor
folk want a good theater and that they
will patronize It well. In fact tills has
been demonstrated in meritorious at
tractions. All that Is needed to make
the Auditorium n place of interest to
this city is confidence in the manage
ment's judgment in booking attrac
tions. That confidence once deserved
and. established , It Is thought the people
ple of Norfolk and surrounding towns
and territory , will welcome good
things theatrically offered.
The Auditorium will bo under sep
arate management from The News and
will have no connection in any way
with the newspaper. The theater will
lie operated as an independent busi
ness and the manager in charge will
bo asked to account for the business
aside from other interests of the com
pany and will operate it with the aim
of making it pay its own way and
looking out for Itself.
An effort will be made In this news
paper more strongly than ever to give
accurate criticisms of all attractions ,
in order that confidence In the criti
cisms may be upheld.
In making the purchase It was
thought that If efforts to make the
theater successful should fall , the An-
lltorlum building could easily be con
verted Into additional space for the
newspaper aijd printing establishment
for which there Is a growing demand ,
so that there was more than one In
ducement to make the Investment. It
Is hoped and expected , however , that
such a step shall never become neces
sary , for It Is believed that the Audi
torium , properly conducted , will bo
appreciated by the city to which It be
For Public Use.
The policy with regard to use of
the Auditorium by Norfolk and Nor
folk people will be to grant every pos
sible concession for the public benefit ,
and to make It so easy for local people
to acquire in their various enterprises
that It will be practically the property
Before another season , and perhaps
In the near future , the theater will be
remodelled to a certain extent and
made more attractive , as well as more
comfortable. The house will be re
decorated , a new heating plant In
stalled ami other changes made. It Is
hoped to make the theater one of the
prettiest to be found in any city 'Nor
folk's size In the country.
