TAFTS NOMINATION SPEECH , V
IKES HIM iNY FRIENDS (SrrPI1,-?"11'
Straightforward Talk on Issues
of Campaign Appeals to
By C. S. ALBERT
Special Star-Bulletin Correspondence
WASHINGTON, D. C, August 2.
President Taftfs speech accepting the
Republican nomination did, not create
a riple on the somewhat stagnant
political sea. It had a more beneficent
effect Its perusal by the farmer, the
orkingman and the soberminded gen
erally is .expected to produce good re
sults. The address Itself is regarded
ax a fair, plain, straightforward an
nouncement of Mr. Taft's policies and
promises. It is considered an unusual
ly excellent campaign document The
prediction is advanced that between
this time and November 5 the speech
of acceptance will bring thousands of
dissatisfied voters back into the fold.
It is a curious fact that at present
the defeat of Mr. Taft is accepted on
all sides as a foregone conclusion. His
most intimate friends and loyal sup
porters do not prophesy his election.
When the Subject is mentioned, there
is Invariably a sad nod of the head
and a whispered declaration that the
Democrats will certainly win , next
Like McKinley Campaign.
In many respects the campaign now
beginning is identical with that which
resulted in the first election of Wil
liam McKinley. Up to within one
week of 'the fatal November day the
overwhelming success of , Wiiiam J.
Bryan was cheerfully conceded. , No
body was foolish or reckless enough
to anticipate the triumph of Mr; Mc
Kinley. The entire tide of sentiment
seemed to -i reverse' itself during'- the
teven, days immediately, preceding the
battle of ballots.
.A'. large number of the more ccuser
vative now ; thoughtfully sugfsjpsti that
perhaps Mr. Taft may "duplicate the
success of his- co-citizen, McKln
ley and win out after the contest -is
eiven over to Mr '.Wilson and the
Democrats. In this connection, it Is
believed the President's speech reply
ing to Senator Root's address ol noti
fication, will go far; toward reassuring
the wavering and bringing people to a
realization that Borne good remains in
tbe Republican party..
House Fight Fruitless.
The threshing out in the House of
the contested delegate question has
not teen productive , of beneficial re
sults. It was merely an exchange of
criticism and, harsh: words by several
Representatives, belonging to ajl poli
tical parties. The old charges were
reiterated' but' no further proof pre
sented to demonstrate that everything
was not determined on a basis of the
utmost t aJrness.lThe : Democrats found
much . satisfaction . in , producing, add!
tional? statement K tending to "Indicate
that the managers for.CoL' Roosevelt

THE COURTS When a judicial de
cision involves an interpretation of
what the people mean by the con
stitutions which they have framed
and laws passed by, the people are
. nullified because the courts say
those laws are contrary to the peo
ple's will as expressed in their Con
stitution, there must be a "reference
to the people of the public effect of
such decisions under forms securing
full deliberation," to the end that
the people may rectify this alleged
defeat in their Constitution by a
popular vote having all the force of
a Constitutional amendment.

Commission should be created,

Flvher't Little Joke
Secretary Fisher pulled off a fairly
presentable joke at the notification
ceremonies. A luncheon followed the !
speech making. i
Among the adornments of the state !
dining room are two enormous Bull .
Moose heads. They were placed in!
that position by the former President j
Col. Roosevelt. t J
It happened that, Secretary. Fisher
stood immediately beneath one of the
bull moose beads. J
Representaive Rodenberg of Illinois
called his attention to' the fact and

"But they are dead."
The first step in the direction of
catching tije negro vote for the Re-,
publicans has been taken. A compi
lation was made from the rosters and
descriptive lists' of the navy, showing
to what extent negroes are employed
by the government In. the enlisted and .
civil branches of thafservlce. - - (

as to Discrimination. .;, . (
, t Friends of President insist that
these figures clearly prove there has'
been no discrimination against the:
negro under the Taft administration.
The Republican congressional com
mittee Is to aid all Republican nom-
inees for Congress, whether they are
actively engaged In the support of
Taft and Sherman or not, according
to Representative McKinley of Illi
nois, chairman of the committee. But
any of the so-called Republican Pro
gressives who join with a third party
the Bull Moose party may expect
no aid whatever from the committee.
Mr. McKinley said :
The committee - will do everything
in Its power to elect Republican nom
inees for Congress. If they, come out
strongly for the national tickt well
and good; but if they prefer to re
main quiet and withhold active sup
port from Taft and Sherman, they are
none the less Republicans, and enti
tled to assistance of the committee.,; j
X)f course, Iftney announce them
selves as candidates of a third' party, '
which, in its call, announced itself dis
tinct" from the Republican party,' they
have no right fto, expect help from a
Republican; committee. They, have
Justt' as v much - fights to expect help .

An English syndicate is responsible
icr the aerial railway to connect Man
izales with Mariquita, but the plan-,
ning of the line is in the hands of a1
German engineering firm, and was
begun in January last. The distance
to be covered is approximately forty!
miles, not including a branch which
will run from El Zancudo to the min-
ing district of the same name. The
greatest height at wnicn tne came
will be carried is 10,bu(j feet, in the
neighborhood of La Leonera. For
every mile of cable it will be neces
sary to construct fifteen or sixteen
towers. The motive power is to be
derived from a point on the River
Guali, where, it is said, 750 horse
power can easily be developed. It is
estimated that such a railway could
transport 500 tons in twenty-four
are relatively light the enterprise is
hours, and as construction expenses,
regarded as very promising. Sta-i
