Victor Rosewater. Editor of The Bee,
Talk Politic to Baltimore Son
Man Jenkins Called Home
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. May 29-(Speclal Tele
gram.) The Baltimore Sun this morning
prints the following regarding Mr. Victor
Rosewater, editor of The Omaha Bee, who i
Is In the east with Mrs. Rosewater:
"Mr. Victor Rosewater, one of the pro
prietor of The Omaha Bee and member
of the republican state central committee
of Nebraska, visited the building of the
Sun yesterday. On an eastern trip last
December, about a month after the opening
of the new building, Mr. Rosewater In
spected the plant from top to bottom and
expressed himself a highly pleased with
i what he aw.
( "National politics I engrossing a good;
! part of the attention of most Nebraskansj
j at present and Roosevelt sentiment lsj
' stronger than ever before in the central i
j west," he say. !
Mr. Rosewater was axked for an expres-j
1 ston concerning the situation In his part
j of the country.
I "The action of tho Michigan state ecn
I ate In Indorsing President Roosevelt for a
second elective term reflects the sentiment
, prevailing almost universally throughout !
J the central weat. There Is no question j
I that the people of the entire section are
j thoroughly In harmony with the president'!
I policies and appreciative of hi achieve-
j ment, especially in the direction of rail-!
' road regulation and corporation control, j
l believe that the disposition of republl-j
jean In our part of the country will be. j
unless the presidrnt makrs It known that
j It will be positively distasteful to him, to
. send delegations to the next republican
national convention so far committed to
him as at least to make him an offer of
another nomination and give him an op
portunity to refuse It. The opportunity
to refuse a nomination for the presidency,
with success assured In advance, has
never come to anyone, and the mere re
fusal would give the president a unique
position In American history.
"There Is no thought that the president
would accept another nomination unless
conditions materially change, but the peo
ple of the west, who admire him and be
lieve In him, would be glad to confer on
him the distinction of another nomination,
even If It has to be followed up with the
selection of a. new nominee, who will have
to be, no matter what his personality,
firmly committed to the Roosevelt poli
cies." Jenkins Called on to Explain.
John Jenkins of Nebraska, United States
consul at San Salvador, is coming home to
explain some things In relation to the re

There are. It 1 understood, some, real ugly

the Omaha man gava aid and comfort
secretly to the Nicaraguan and permitted
them to misuse his official capacity.
It is related of Jenkins, who Is an Im

that he ha taken savage delight In pic
