Secretary Taft Is fortluate In havin
a trotlher who Is eatormously rich, wht
attained his fortunte partly throug
marrlage and partly because ! of i
Vhrevd combialation of- polities aiw
business and the successful autpipuhi

clInlati. Two weeks ago people 11
WashingtollN who professed to knox
told ine that the Taft (camflpaign foi th
nomination was costing in the negi1
borhood of $so,000. The investigator
for tile New York paper, proceedin!
along, as I havs, reason to know, enthr;

While there have been men travelin
all over the United States In the it

quarters in WashliUgtol and i Colun

present time does not represent hail
the expenditure that will nlecessaril
have to be made if his brother Is I
buy the nomination for him. The col

these three lmonthls will be the tilti

Many people on the Republican sid
