About this time watch Mr. Hill

Now that President Roosevelt has been nominated as the Republican candidate for president, discussion of the likely Democratic presidential nominee has begun. The prospect of Grover Cleveland being nominated is unlikely, because popular sentiment opposes a third term presidency. William Jennings Bryan's prospects are poor because "he has talked his head off." David B. Hill seems the most likely candidate.
