TAFT AGAINST LONG PIERS
Declares Hudson Fairway
Should Not Be Narrowed.
Washington, I-'eb. 4. President Taft
took a vigorous atand against lengthen?
ing Steamship piers in the Hudson River
at New York In a special messag* to
Congress to-day vetoing the proposal
that he appoint a 1'nlted States engineer
to the Join! Harbor I.lne Commission of
New York and New Jersey. Ho said;
The poposal to narrow the Hudson
Hiver at ils narrowest point has been
passed upon by four su, cesslva Secre?
taries of War. Including myself when I
held the office. They have uniformly
decided against the proposition. I my?
self held firmly the conclusion that any
further encroachments upon the exist?
ing filrway of the Hudson Hiver at that
point would be most shortsighted and
eventually destructive of the commer?
cial interests of the nation, which It Is
the duty of the federal authorities to
conserve. 1 regard the question as one
which. In the light of these successive
decisions, ought to be considered as Ir?
Tho Prealdent agreed there were many
questions concerning the Port of New
York to be taken up by a Joint Sew Jer
aey-New York commission which were
proper subjects for conference and co?
operation with the federal authorities
He suggested the elimination of the pier
line question in the resolution.
"I deem It of highest Importance that
this authority over the location of har?
bor lines shall be exercised, not by local
officials subject to the biases and preju?
dices of their localities, but by officer?
of the general government, aasndslns
their functions with a \lslon hroao
enough to embrace the Interests of Ihe
entire nation." the President concluded

House for four years. Tho plan otlgi
nated with Mrs. Richard EL Townsend,
Miss Hoardman, Mrs. Frank Fall?s, Mrs.
T. T. Gaff, the Misses Patten. Mrs. L.
Z. Leiter and several other women who
are closely attached to .Mrs. Tuft. The
gift was Intended as a surprise, to be
presented just before Mrs. Taft left
Mrs. Taft's efforts to ?lignify tho
place of "First Lady of the Land"
have met with marked success. This

It is understood that gems for the
gift have been selected, and the choice
now lies between a. necklace and a
tlnra, with the preference leaning
toward the necklace.
This will not be the first token of
esteem Mrs. Taft has received since she
became the mistress of the White
House, for in addition to the presents
ehe received on her sliver wedding
anniversary the "Famou ; Tafters,"
who have kept alive the memory of the
President's trip to the Orient, presented
to her a diamond studded wat? h and a
gift of equal richness and value on an?
Among the women who ere most in?
terested in the gift lo he sent to Mrs.

Mrs. Preston Gibson, Mrs. Henry F.

Who will carry the gift to the White
House and the exact form of presenta?
tion have not been decided. A more
simple plan thun that carried out in
presenting Um diamond necklace to
Mrs. Roosevelt just before her depart?
ure from the White House could hardly
be adopted. Miss May Williams and
Miss Robert Hltt carried that gift to
the White House, and with It a ri?*t
hook inscribed with the names of the
thirty-five donors. Th?> package was
handed to the head usher, with ?lirc.
