An Odell drive at Hanna

The author claims that while Senator Hanna publicly denies presidential ambitions his press bureau in Cleveland, Ohio, is attempting to advance Hanna's candidacy and create disaffection with President Roosevelt. Hanna cannot overcome Roosevelt's popularity with the public but will appeal to anti-Roosevelt politicians and business leaders. Anti-Roosevelt politicians are active in New York, hoping that if Roosevelt fails to capture his own state's delegation he can be defeated. However, Governor Odell and the Republican masses are with Roosevelt and the New York delegation should give Roosevelt their full support.
