a repetition of that event to-day found
they were mistaken, because Mr. Prender

delegates who kne? he was going to try

The Controller struck the popular not?
when he began by saying that he didn't
enjoy the Job he had In prospect, but felt
it a duty. "This Is a great family gather?

matters and talk them over ""dainty," was
the way he expressed It.
Job Hedges struck another unpopular
note wh'-n he open?d with something Ilk?
this: "This begin-? to look like a r?al con

ing was never greater tYmn It I? to-day."
Mr Hedges made It perfectly plain, how?
erar, that his admiration was all for the
coiirageaus attitude of th? Controller i'i
faring such united opposition, and not at I
all for the doctrines he espoused. In char?
acteristic phraseology he explain??! that
"whether a man Is a Progressiv? or not d?
I ends largely upon which way he was fac?

Hedges made It plain that he believed Mr.

For Representative Government.
Following Mr. Root, Mr. Wadsworth was
hearel in defence of representative govern?
ment Though 00 inveighed against direct
legislation, he admitted that the legislative
system in this state at present was by no
means perfect. He said It was breaking
down because of the mass of ill considered,
hastily drawn and, in some cases, Joker
ridden bills presented to each Legislature.
Hfl ?dvocated some system similar to that
In Use In Fngland, tinder which a special
board of legislative experts passes on pro
?posed i as to necessity and form.
Mr Wadsworth ?aid, in part.
Our government is being attacked to-day
In all Its bran, hee- ? xeeutlve, legislative and
Judicial Through the operation of what Is
known as the recall election, all executive
and Judicial officers are to be sapped ot

e of their functions and ar* to

Taft Manager Says Result of Primary
Waahington, April 10 ? Representative
\V. R McKinley, director of Taft'a national
headquarters, to-day Issued the first offi?
cial comment from the Taft side on the
PresldenMal primary In Illinois yesterday
The result In Ullnoia waa not unexpected
to those familiar with the situation. The
issues which occupied the attention of the
people of the state were so peculiarly local
as to cause the Presidential Issue to be lost

Furthermore, the questions discussed bv
Mr. Roosevelt In his speeches had little to
do with Mi? actual Issues which he has
raised between himself and Mr Taft. In
