PLATT SAYS ITS TAFT.
Senator Thinks He Will Get Presi
dcirtial Nomination.
Senator Thomas <\ Platt who, in spite of his
physteaTinflrmlttes, still maintains a keen Interest in
political affairs In the stafc and nation, said last
night he believed Secretary Taft would be nominat
ed for President at the Republican National Con
vention. The Senator, who, with the exception of
ix few months spent at Manhattan Beach last sum
mer, has been living since last May with friends
at the Ebaendorf, So. 133 West llth street, was
seen there last night by a Tribune reporter.
He bad Just been wheeled Into his library from
the dining room, and had settled himself In a big
easy 'hair. His fao> Is fuller and his color la bet
ter than it !ia« been for BORM lime. The Senator
Raid ho was feeling better than for a long time. He
Is looking forward to Koing to Washington, where
he will take Ms seat In Coliprrss as the senior Sena
tor from New York state. He will leave here for
Washington on Saturday, November 30, and will
go to Us Id quarters at the Hotel Arlington. Mr.
arid Mrs. Abel, with whom be is living, and who
wont with him to Manhattan Beach, will accom
pany him to Washington, but may not Mr.
Abel will have bis vacation from the Custom Ho-.ise
at that time.
"I)i> you think that President Roosevelt will eon-
Bent to tak<* a ti-inl term?" the Senator Was asked.
•I do not," he replied. "I believe, with others.
that be cannot afford to take another nomination
i:i view of bis declaration that he would -not do so.
It is true tbat he Is Impulsive, but I cannot think
that he would k<> back on the declar.it ions he has
made.
"Who do you think will be tha next Republican
candidate for President?"
"I think it will be Se, . i iry Taft. " was the rep'.y.
"It is evident to me that President Roosevelt would
not have placed Secretary Tafl In the Held unless
he purposed to stand by him. It la true that the
polltlcaj aspirations of ninny men have been killed
by rtaxting their booms too soon, but I think Sec
retary Taft ■ case ll Wtnewhat different. Presi
dent Roosevelt will undoubtedly dominate thr con
vention, and i;. .v- 1 believe, he Ifi sincere in his
advoca* t of the nomination of Taft ha will nomi
nate the £'>cr*tary of War ns ills successor."'
Senator Platt seemed to think that th«» New Tork
Stato delegation would probably vote according to
tho ideas of the President
■ you think that the President's alleged oppo
sition to Governor Hughes i- 1 "- caused by t
that he believes th<» Qovernor would not carry <>ut
the Roosevelt policy?"
"Not altogether, It is b< cause t!)<" Qovernor stands
In the way of his friend. T.-:ft 1 do not believe
thrit Secretary Taft would be no radical as ih>"
President if be should jrft into the White House.
He would bo u much stronger candidate than the
President for that reason. If the President should
be forced to take another nomination It would be
a tremendous light. The Ka^t. largely on a'-''.,
of the rlnatxlal troubles, would b»* opposed to him,
■while the West would be almost solidly for him."
Th<> Senator thinks that the <-omi;i^ session of
< "onjrress will bo om of the most Important nnd
liveliest in >eaip, duo to the opposition to the
policy of the President and to new currency legis
lation that will be proposed.
The Senator did not seem Inclined to talk inu'-h
about the recent rampnipn in thla county, it waa
not .i pleasant subject for h!m to dwell on, appar
ently. "Do you. as a ctmpaip-n managi of many
years, think that the action of H"rbert Parsons In
fusing with the lndepen'3< League was juatl-
BedT" h" was aeked. i
"I certainly do not." li r said, "It was the most
foolish thing that could have been done. Il< ought
to have known that to join forces with a political
organization like that of Hearst would t«nd to
weaken rather than to strengthen the Republican
organization."
Senator Platt thought that the victory of Tim
othy l. Woodruff in Brooklyn proved he was a
much keener politician than many persoi i gave
him credit foi. "Mr. Woodruff's position in Re
publican politics In this f=tate la much ronger
than it was several months apn." he said. "Any
oiio who takes him for a novice at politics i-* great
ly mistaken. H« insisted on nominating a straight
ticket and won a Breat vlctary-"
The nator*s table was piled high with Sunday
papers, which lie had been reading all afternoon.
There is not a piece of poiiti'-al formation from
any part of the country which escapes his atten
tion in the public prints, and, although I e is not

Mr. Conners, through courtesy, was in

NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. MONDAY. NOVEMBER 11, 1007
THE OBVERSE OF THE MEDAL
During the past five years this Company
has invested for itself and its clients over
$60,000,000 in mortgages without the loss of a
single dollar.
THE REVERSE
New York City Z^S'o bonds, which sold
about five years ago at 107 T -, were worth this
week 82'i-a loss of over 25 points.
AGAIN
Even the best railroad bonds have in the
past year suffered an enormous decline.
WHILE
Tirst mortages on improved New York City
real estate, yielding a higher interest return,
show no loss whatever.
To investors who seek security rather than
the hazards of speculation, this company
offers mortgages in which its own funds have
been invested— the same class of mortgages
which have shown the remarkable results above
stated. These mortgages can be purchased

OLD P.ARTIES TO UXITE.
SOCIALIST PREDICTION.
Democrats and Republicans Against
Common Enemy Next Year.
The very stronghold of American plutocracy was
stormed last night by tho future rulers of America.
At least, Julius Hopp. the chairman of a meeting
of the Socialist Stago Society at the Berkeley
Theatre ("near Fifth avenue"), said the next na
tional election would lie between the combined
Democratic Bnd Republican parties against the
socialists, and the outcome of that, or certainly
the following election, could not be doubted.
"There is a new eta this year— l mean, b<
with this year," declared <h^ socialist theatre
manager in opening thu meeting: "Socialism has
spread all over th* world already before, but this
year it has come to America, and i;i America i*.
is going to pet further ahead than in any other
country. Why. it used t.> !>•■ that theatre man
agers along Broadway would not have anything
to do with me as manager of this society. Now I
can go t<> any of them and say, 'We will i>ac.v
you in. if you rut on this play,' and they \w'\
do it. •
In thi- way, Mr. Hopp said, socialism In Amer
ica bad surpassed that in other countries. WThai
plays be bad put before the public in this way he
did not say, but he announced later several of the
"masters" who were "going to be" presented
through his society. Then he proceeded to give
!h<> latest bulletin from the political Held:
"There are no issues ill politics up to this time.
n Democrats and the Republicans are the
same. Their Issues arc only fake. At the next
election the parties will be Republican and Demo
cratic against t!i" Socialist. And the Socialists will
win. Then we win have a real Democracy in this
country and everybody win go to see So-.-iMiist
plays along Broadway."
There wee about Sixty persons present. Mr.
Eiopp knew of "tvir- a? many" who were anxious
to back him up in hi:-! theatrical schemea. Later
he announce,) that be bad talked with thousands
who were burning with enthusiasm for the work

PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD
Bulletin.
THE NEW UNION STATION AT WASHINGTON.
All the passenfc-r trains of the Pennsylvania Railroad will enter and depart
ftom the new Union Station at Washington on November 17, 1907, and on tin
same date the present station at Sixth and B Streets will be closed to traffic
The date is singularly fitting. In 1807 both wings of the Capitol were com
pleted, and now a century later a building even larger is opened tor a grea: public
utility, which did not exist at that time.
The railroad terminal facilities at Washington have been inadequate t>t
years. particu!arlv at inauguration periods and on the assemblage of other large
gatherings at the Capital. Their improvement was imperative, and so it has com*
about that, by the combined effort of the railroads and the United States Gov
ernment, one of the largest and unquestionably the handsomest railroad station
in the world is now provided not only for the convenience of the citizens of tht
United States, but as a notable architectural addition to the great public bnild*
ings of the Capital City. It is a monumental edifice and a worthy type of tha
future structures which will make Washington the municipal beauty spot of kha)
world.
The station including the Concourse is longer than the Capitol and nearr/
as wide. The waiting room is larger than the hall of the House of Representa
tives. The concourse, which is the train lobby, is longer than the interior of
the Capitol building, if it were one continuous hall, and half aa widx It is the
lar^rst building ever constructed for a like purpose.
Within this great structure there is every convenience the traveler can desire*
so grouped about the cencral hall as to serve his purpose to the best advantage.
The lofty arched entrances face a plaza as large as an ordinary city park,
which will be laid out as a plaza and adorned with shrubbery and fountains.
The trackage is sufficient for all demands upon it, and as the entrance to and
exit from the trains are separated the confusion and jostling of hurrying crowds
moving in opposite directions will be obviated.
Tho bigness of the station is impressive, its utilities obvious.
