frame-up la New York. Mr. Roosevelt
can not cat the presidency again at laaat
not rlcbt away but that he plana an-
other career the first stepa of yrhich !
an election to the senate is borne out
by many thins.
All hla efforts of the laat three years
fcave been toward capturing the party
tnaootnery. Thlshe used to scuttle the
Hughes presidential boom and displace)
the Odell and PI4U men with Roosevelt
men. As boss be dictated the election of
Boot aa senator to succeed Piatt and his
latest move) was to arrange for the ap-
pointment of Iioen hla private secretary

ROOSEVELT RJ5AL ASPrRANT!
It Is thought in Washington that Govf
ftrnor Hughes' real rival for De pew's seat
la the senate Is Theodore Rooeeveit.
If ore than a year ago it waa Intimated
that Mr. Roosevelt would accept election
to the senate as Mr. Piatt's successor.
But the situation waa chanced when the
African hunt was planned and the man-
tle of Piatt fell upon Root. Mr. Rooee-
' velt's expedition to the Dark continent
r1!l take him out of the United States
or a Uttle more than one year. When he
returns the active contest for the succes-
sion of Senator Depew will be in prog-
With the aid of the State machine re-
inforced by the patronage and power of
Collector Loeb's office there could be or-
ganised an opposition to Governor
Hughes' candidacy for the senate ostensi-
bly In the Interest of Mr. Parsons but
actually tn the Interest of Mr. Roosevelt.
In this aspect of the situation in New
York Collector Loeb may be. as he la al
ready represented to be In some quarters
'the political forerunner and manager of
Mr. Roosevelt Is still but GO. In ten
years front now he will be younger than
Buchanan waa when elected president.
Roosevelt Is still ambitious. He loves the
limelight and as a politician of resource
and skill ha la unmatched In either party.
- Official power and political Influence are
essential to hla happiness. If he were
elected to the senate aa the successor of
Mr. Depew he would again be In a posi-
tion to further his ambition for another
term In the White House. The talk of
ending Mr. ' Parsons to the senate may
be merely for political strategy. Mr. Par-
gona may D only a decoy a rather
clumsy one tto waver the event may
how for a statesman of Mr. Roosevelt's
magnitude. On this basis of speculation
' It la not difficult to understand why Mr.
Roosevelt naked as a personal favor the
appointment of Mr. Loeb to the New
York collector ship. Mr. Loeb Is to
strengthen the Roosevelt "fences and to
help create a public demand for Mr.
Stooeevelt's election to the United States

SAN ANTONIO. Texas March 14.
Seventeen passengera were. Injured some

crashed headlong againat a switch engine
standing on a sidetrack; In the yards at
Sanderson S0 miles west of San Antonio
at S: o'clock this morning.
It Is said a switching crew In the yards
had left the switch open intending to
make a coupling and clove It In ample
time before the passenger train had-
reached it but this was a bad calculation
and the disastrous wreck followed.
The paasenger consisted of four Pull-

Both engines were battered up pretty
badly and a new locomotive brought the
train Into Sao Antonio two hours late at

Thrilling stories of the excitement pre-

INTENDS TO RESIGN

(Houston Post Sttcial.)
AUSTIN Texas. March 14. Speaker
Kennedy having throughout the day de-
clined to discuss the question of what
course he Intended to pursue with regard
to the resignation resolution adopted by
the house last night the Impression was
current tliat he intended to disregard it.
But all doubt on this subject waa re-
moved tonight when he made the follow-
ing statement to the representatives of
the press: "I am going to resign; I never
had any Intention of doing anything else
since last night's vote."
Mr. Kennedy declined to be specific as
to the time when he would resign how-
ever. "I am not saying now as to that." was
the way he answered a question on that
These talks were made after 11 o'clock
tonight and subsequent to the breaking
up of a caucus of those who had stood by
him during the fight against the resig-
nation resolution calling upon him to re-
sign. At this caucus it was decided to
support Sam T. Kayburn of Fannin coun-
ty for the place to be vacated by Mr.
Kennedy. This eliminates Mr. Standlfer
from the list of possibilities aa he par-
ticipated in thla caucus.
THE OPPOSITION CAUCUS.
Those who voted to call upon Kennedy
to resign will caucus tomorrow morning.
Tonight they are discussing Robertson of
Travis. Crockett of Washington and Gil-
more as possibilities. Mr. Gllmore stated
tonight however that he would under
no circumstances consent to run. This
narrows the choice down between Rob-
ertson and Crockett. The open aversion

natus. though he is standing between the
plow handles ready to be roped.
As to Mr. Crockett he Is a parUcularly
strong man snd would not duck the
honor were It thrust upon him.
Mr tialnes will probably support the
nominee of this latter caucus. Mr. Hill
will vote for Rayburn. If he does not

Inquiry from official eonnooted with
the three companl the Texa company
the Water Pierce and the Gulf Refining
company failed to elicit any Information
concerning the meaning of th cut. It
I stated that while there has been no out
and out wax between the three companies
that there ha been much local rivalry.
Thla It 1 stated has finally broken Into
an open war. . V.
An official of the Water Pierce com-
pany waa asked yesterday what waa th
meaning of th cut by th Texa com-
pany and while he waa very ratloent he
stated that that was a matter which they
had no Information upon. It was evident
from hi manner however that th pub-
lished cut of S cents the gallon had cre-
sted quite a stir among the official of
the Water Pierce. When asked if it
was likely that his company would meet
the cut ho mad th Blgniuoant remark:
"W are not ready to leave th Stat.'
This is taken to mean that th Water
Pierce company will meet th price of
the Texa company and while . nothing
tangible could be secured from th Gulf
Refining company. It 1 Intimated . by
tboee not connected wjth that company
who are discussing the cut and who seem
to possess information that th Gulf com-
pany alao will take a hand Jn tbe fight.
Up to within about. four year ago the

RIVALRY HAS GROWN BITTER.
The Texa company kept pushing Into
the territory already covered by the Wa-'
ten Pierce and the Gulf until now In al-
most every town lah State of any con-
sequence and for that matter In almost
every town in the South there are three
local agencies representing each of the
three companies. -
In a number of instance In th smaller-
towns where there la- more than . one
agency the rivalry at times between th
local agents haa become bitter.
While the bead officials of each com--pany
apparently held aloof from these
locaKflght. It Is stated that thla spirit
of rivalry haa grown to such extent until
the head official have become in a meaa-
ure Influenced and that this bad brought
about an open war by -the dec la ration" of

the other companle ' would - promptly'
