Washington, Oct. 30.—John Wanamaker ,the Philadelphia merchant and- former postmaster general, may be named as the Republican candidate for vice-president. The death of Vice President Jaces S. Sherman was anticipated by Republican leaders here and for several days there has been discussion regarding the filling of the vacancy. Mr. Wpnamaker is an enthusiastic supporter of President Taft. He has made speeches and written letters urg ing Uie re-election of the President. He was a delegate to the Chicago convention and then was considered for the vice-presidency. Mr. Taft and Mr. \V.inamaker are personal friends and it is believed Jhe Philadelphlan's selection for second place oh the ticket would be entirely'the President. Mr. Wanamaker's name has been tinder CDnridcration in the past forty- eight hours. He has been in close touch with the campaign and his recent Appcui to the business men of the country to support the Republican ticket was one of the most effective steps taken by the Presldehft friends. Already there has been discussion of the availability of Governor Hadle> Governor Deneen, Senator Borah, Sen ntor Cummins. Senator LaFollette forjner Vice-President Fairbanks, Sen ator Root. Senator Burton, Senatot Ii>dge, Governor Goldsborough and others besides Mr. Wanamaker. . Haikley Is Xentioned. Kansas City, Mo,, Oct. 31.—Rumorr that the name of Governor Herbert S. Hadley would be urged liefore.the national committee as the successor of Vice-President Sherman on the Republican ticket were current last night. It was said that Kansas City friends of the Governor would start petitions here today at a luncheon at the Coates House, where Governor Hadley is to_be a guest. 'Three days"ago''»hen it became known that Mr. Sherman could.not survive long. Republican papers suggested the name of Governor Hadley as bis successor. Several Republican leaders said last night they had: not heard of the movement in Governor Hadley's behalf, except in the newspaper suggestion. They did not believe the movenrent would be started at today's luncheon if started at ail. Tke SltMtloB Perplexing. The national Republican convention delegated to its national committee power to fiill a vacancy on the ticket but it is known that the committee ^ wir. not be nsscnihltid at this time. Should the Kf ijubllran ticket receive a majority of'the electoral votes the imjwrtance of selecting a vice- .presidential candidate is evident, but if next Tuesdaj- no presidential electors receive a majprity of electoral votes, then by the constitution the election will be thrown into the House of Representatives and the candidates to be voted for in UIQ House of Representatives by states would' be limited to those voted for by electors in the electoral college. But the House of Representatives as at present constituted, would be unable to make a decision, because the states vote as a unit, and not more than one-half of the states are represented in the Congress by Democratic members. The declsioii therefore would go to the Senate, whose duty is to select a vice-president. The Senate is limited in its choice of those two candidates woh receive the highest number of votes for vice-president in the electoral college. If it results on Tuesday that the decision rests with congress, the selection of the candidate for vice- president has the utmost importance, because the Democrats arc in a minority In the present Senate, and if a Republican candidate for vice-president is selected he succeeds to lh«- presidency. tlon by playinK "My Country!
