WOULD BE VICE PRESIDENT Gavrrur, Aldrirk Amm Qnery fraen i hlcmc Paper Say lag Office sf Vice rmllrtl Shoald Heat the Maa. iFrom a Stiff Correspondent) LINCOLN. Neb.. Feb. 12.-4Special.r-Governor Aldrlch hu returned from his trip to Chicago, where he attended a conference of governors favorable to the -.candidacy of former President Roose velt. He appears to be satisfied over the outlook, but from a few remarks dropped it is evident Governor Hadley of Mis souri and other governors did not hitch 'ery well. The sessions were executive, but the governor Intimated there was an opinion that Hadley wanted to run the whole thins and there were several others there who desired to have something to say, the result being- several clashes. Hadley Is credited with having an ambition to he the vice presidential candidate on a itoosevelt ticket, and It Is Intimated hi is not the only similar ambition harbored about western executive mansions. Aldrieh Sat Hlitlai It. Governor Alty-Ich's vica presidential boom drew a mention today In the form of a te'egram from the Chicago Inter tK-ean, which wired him aa follows: ."Chaunccy Depew says your name has bt-en under consideration for vice presi dent on Roosevelt ticket. Will you kindly wire anything you wish to say on the subject?" Governor Aldrlch sent the following re ply: DM not know I was being mentioned as candidate for vice presidency on the Itoosevelt ticket. It is premature to think of such a thing. This position peeks the man and it is Impracticable for the man to seek the office of vice president. This telegram and the report which drew It out probably had its origin in the recent meeting of western governors, at which It was currently reported sev eral vice presidential booms were In the incubator.

Says one: "The principal trouble with Bryan is thai there Is no question In his mind that he Is always right and every one who disagrees with blm la not only necessarily wrong, but that he la actuated by some ulterior motive. His intoleranoa Is becoming unbearable to a large many and though I have always followed his lead I must confess that this attitude of his often galling."
