He added that he had agreed today tn
make only one speech for the senator, and
as far as U now known, he wih niak only
one. The time and plae for this .speech
have, not boen fixed.
Those who hav followed the political
conferences at Oyster Bay since Theodora
Roosevelt's return, share the belief that
he has ben feeling his way cautiously In
his attitude toward the administration and
the insurenta, but today's incidents are
consider) a the most important yet de
veloped. Senator Beverldge Is making bis
tif.t for. re-eleetlon aa an Insurgent. We
Is opposed by John W. Kern, w ho ran with
Bryan In tha last campaign.
Anlut Taft oi Tariff.
In his flgnt the senator ia placing himself
squarely against President Taft Insofar as
the tariff figures. The law which the presi
dent has defended as tha best tariff meas
ure ever. Is denounced without equlv.ca
tlon by the senator; and the same republi
can state convention which endorsed
Beveritte for another term virtually
repudiated the law. In tha senate
Beverldge fought the bill to the last and
then voted against it.
It Is pointed out.' however, that with this
exception President Taft and the senator
from Indiana bave been pulling together'
as far as administration policies are con
cerned. There has been no break between
them. The president entrusted to the scn
ator the conduct of two administration
measures at the last session of congress
the statehood bill and the Alaska govern
ment bill. And although the senator worked
faithfully with tha Insurgent band in the
senate, and had a hand In the alteration
of President Taffs railroad bill, be sup
ported the administration regularly In thi
last session when the votes were taken.
Sagamore Hill was fairly swarming all

Hoosevrlt Well Pleased.
Colonel Roosevelt appeared to be well
pleased with the result of the day's work
of talking polities, which began aimost as
soon as he w.is up and lasted well through
the afurnoon. To Interviewers, however,
he would say little concerning the confer
ences, except that he had promised to make
one speech for Mr. Beverldge. Thus those
who sought to Interpret tne day as a gen
eral insurgent rally looking toward the
shaping of Colonel Roosevelt's future at
titude were left In the dark. And as an In
dication that this was not the case, there
was the presence of Senator Carter, a man
who In the past steadily has opposed In
surgency. Senator Beverldge spent only a few hours
at Sagainore Hill, and It was evident that
the press of other visitors and a dinner en
gagement In New York that necessitated
an early return gave him less time than
be wished to discuss the political situa
tion in Indiana with his host.
"I have no doubt that Mr. Roosevelt will
give out anything that he wishes to be
come public about our interview," said Mr.
Beverldge. "1 gave my views on the In
diana situation fully In a formal statement
several days ago."
"Did you come away pleased with the
results of 2 our talks?"
Weverlda ia Happy.
The senator's smilo broadened until he
"Well," he said, "I have had many talks
with Mr. Roosevelt in the last few years,
but never In my experience hav I had one
nioro satisfactory than today's talk."
Further than this Senator Bcveiidg
would not so.
"I start ou my vacation tomorrow," he
addL-d. "and it ia needless to say thut I to
in a very happy frame of mind."
Senator Beverldge said he came to Oyster
Bay by uppoiulment and that bis visit had
nothing to do with that of tha other vis
itors here today.
"1 found Colonel Roosevelt," he declaied,
"mom ajlve und more interested in things
Winston Churchill wss as careful as Sen
utor Lvvendge to keep back any speclf.c
information as to the conversation between
Colonel Roosevelt, the Bass brothers and
himself. "Colonel Roosevelt has been in
terested in the fight in New Hampshire
since It began, in UMi, slun I ran for gov
ernor," he said. "This year Robert R, Bass
of Peterboro is a candidate for governor.
He may b classed with tha insurgents,
but the New Hampshire republican organi
sation has not opposed bis nomination. Mr.
Roosevelt wanted to know about the situa
tion in New Hampshire, and as I am an old
friend of his I came down to tell htm."
Did Mr. Roosevelt indicate what hia at
titude was In regard to the fight in New
hare .Mothing- tbasl Baaa.
"Only by his friendly attitude. He said
nothing to show his views."
Then Mr. Churchill produced a paper on
whl.-h he .had written a statement Her
"Our whole purpose In New Hampshire
this summer is to make Mr. Bass governor
Slid to eirct a legislature to support him.
We have done nothing else; we bave n.td-

deals. The people of the stste tru--( him,

All of tha withdrawals and confirmations

Wyoming- Oil Lands.
Secretary Ballinger, prior to leaving for
the west today, announced that the presi
dent, acting under the law permitting him
to withdraw from entry public lands for
examination as to what may be beneath the
surface, had confirmed former withdrawals
of 25,41 acres In Wyoming.
The withdrawals in Wyoming are made
because It is asserted that vast petroleum
deposits Ho beneath the surface and In
order to allow time for the government to
Investigate, this vast acreage Is withdrawn
from entry. These lands, presumably hav-
i.!,! petroleum deposits, are located In sev
eral portions of the state of Wyoming and

drawn under executive orders. The action
