the party cap stand together. The Roose
velt people contended In the conference
that the only ground on which a reor
ganization could be brought about would
be through the acceptance by a Repub
lican convention of most of'the principles
advocated In the Bull Moose platform.
Immediately after the conference Gov.
Hadley of Missouri gave out a formal
statement of his own v,lews on the ques
tion of party reorganization. Here Is
the statement:
Guv. lfadlea's Statement.
"I have felt and acted upon the theory
that the Republican party has not out
lived Its usefulness as an agency of good
government, but I do not agree with
those who contend that all that is neces
sary for us to do is to sit still or to stand
pat in the hope and belief that Demo
cratic mistakes on general business de
pression will restore the Republican
pary to power
"1 bellce the fact that 4.000.000
voters who otcd the Republican ticket
In 1903 refused to vote It in 1311 requires
a careful consideration as to the reason
of their action, and as to what may be
done to correct conditions to which they
hav e objected
"One of the conditions which has been
the cause of objection within the party
for j ears has been the present djsIs of
representation from Southern States.
Another Is the part 'a attitude toward
direct primaries for the election of dele
gates to national conventions. I believe
that such chnnge should be made in the
existing rules for the conduct of party
affairs in both of these matters that
there can be no question but that the
will of the majority will control both as
to pollcj and as to candidates We Re
publicans who believe In progressive pol
icies can not ask that those who are
conservative should change their opin
oinfc. but we ought all to be able to
agree that the conventions that settled
these questions shall be trulv represen
tative of voters but not a political or
official authority and that the) shall
express the wishes of the majoritv
,hat time and in wnat way
changes should be made. It Is in mv opin
ion too earl to sa There should be
ample time for the prejudices and feel
ings aroused by the recent contest to
subside I believe that prior to the be
ginning of the campaign of 1914. prob-
ablj within the next J ear. tture should
be called a national convention or the
Republican party to consider these ques
tions or an other matters that It might
then deem advisable to consider
11 Optimistic.
Gov Carroll of Iowa, said that he
felt after the short talks that he had
listened to that the situation of the
Republican party might not be ennsid

the other two parties were inclined to

that the&e new methods should be stu
died and adopted if we are to bring
about necessan Improvement, but our
farmers can hardly do this unless in
some wa the additional capital Is fur
nished them, which is indispenslble to
such an improtement of agricultural
methods We hate great capital in this
country, and we have farming property
that Is producing farm products of Im
mense alue It would seem clear that
with these two elements It would be pos
sible to lntrodue a third, by which the
farmer engaged In producing the crops
should be able. In view of what he pro
duces and the value ot the land on wich
It Is produced, to obtain money on the
faith of the land and on the faith of the
products which will enable him to ex
pend his acreage and better his methods
of cultivation and production This is
a field In which those who are clamor
Ins for progress and who are looking ti
the gocrnment to furnish wajs of
progress mi) well devote their atten
tion, for this is real and practical
"An eas) exchange between capital and
farmers, Mr. Taft continued, "with
proper security, has been established In
European countries, where the rate of
Interest has been lowered so that the
farmer Is on practically the same basis
of adantage In the borrowing of mone
to aid his farming as the business man
Is In borrowing monej to aid and carry
on his business. If this can be done
abroad It can be done here, and If abroad
find that government institutions
adapted to form the conduit pipe be
tween capitalists and farmers are suc
cessfully operating, why should we n t
adopt them here?"
Condition. Different.
"I am quite willing to agree that con
ditions here are different from those In
tturcpe. and that such conditions ma)
make necessary a modification of tha
methods 'adopted to produce the flow of
capital to the farms and the return of
proper security to the capitalist; but the
general plans adopted abroad can be
amended to suit the peculiarities of the
present conditions and a convention of
Governors, representing all the States of
the Union, is the place where such meth
ods ought to be discussed with a view- to
adopting uniform legislation in all the
States to secure the desired end.
In concluding, Mr. Taft said: v
"There Is no subject matter of great
er Importance to the people of the
United States than the Improvement of
agricultural methods, keplng them up
to date In all agricultural communities,
the securing; of profit to the farmer,
the attraction of the oung men of the
country to farming as a lucrative pro
fession and lowering the cost of pro
ducing agricultural products and the
lowering of their prices to the consum
ers." Herrlclc Also Speaks.
Addresses were also made by Secre
tary Wilson, Senator Fletcher, and Am
bassador Herrlck. who. In a report to
the State Department several months
ago, made the original suggestion on
the subject of land credit schemes
which prompted Peresident Taft to re
fer to the conference of Governors a
consideration of the plan.
'In the United States," Mr Herrlck
said, "the land mortgage business is not
specialized except In the cities, and never
has an effective attempt been made to
adopt the principle of amortization with
out which a land credit system remains
an uncompleted and fragile scaffold, en
dangering the good name and the public f
welfare of any country trusting upon It.
Amortization, however, is the all-dom-1
mating teature or me tana mortgage bss
terns of all European nations. The av
erage length of a loan Is about thirty
j ears, and many run for sevents-flve
ers There Is no land mortgage system
In Europe which could be transplanted
bodlls Into the United States We should
have to take the best principles, such as
the associated guaranty or the Land-i
schaften. the government supervision, j
and amortization methods, and construct
a new machlners adapted to American
needs and business habits " I
