described by William R, Hearst: "He

is unable to formulate clearly his tariff
program. , He concedes that the trust

unwllltnf clearly to explain bow he pro

statement. Qualifies every utterance, and
stands nicely balanced on every tmue,
ready to retreat or advance aa occasion

and therefore awkward and unnatural.
As president he would be a i positive
danger to the party and to the country.
