- Governor Hadley expresses the concerns of Missouri Republican leadership over Theodore Roosevelt's support for the recall of judges and judicial decisions. While they are in favor of the initiative and referendum, the recall of judges threatens the independence of the judiciary. Hadley interpreted Roosevelt's recent speeches as a warning that the recall of judges could be a last resort and suggests that Roosevelt clarify his position to lessen the "popular alarm."
