Another Protests Against
The District today finds itself hope
lessly divided In sentiment regarding the
confirmation by Congress of the two
CommlEs'oncrs, npmlnatlons for which
were sent to the Capitol by the Presi
dent on Tuesday.
At 'two mass meetings of citizens,
held yesterday afternoon and last
night in different parts of the city, one
body went on record as favoring the
confirmation of Commissioner Rudolph
and. Capt. James F. Oyster, while a sec
ond expressed Itself as being unal
terably opposed to such a course.
Citizens At Odds.
The first, a meeting of representative
citizens of Washington, at the Na
tional Theater during- the afternoon,
vigorously defended the right of Presi
dent Taft to nominate the two Com
.RilsEioners to take the place of those
whose terms of office expire during his
Tour hours later, at the old Masonic
Temple, the Democrats of Washington,
expressing surprise at President Tail's
course in appointing two men to pre
side over the destinies of the District
during the four years which his suc
cessor. Governor Wilson, will be re
quired to live here, opposed the con
firmation. The Democrats recorded themselves
as favoring the selection of two Demo
crats for the" positions, and not one
Democrat and one Republican, and de
termined to -ask Congress to refuse to J
confirm President ,Taft's nominations. I
xney-wm request that President-elect
Wilson be given an opportunity to se
lect the next Commissioners.

That President Taft Is better qualified
to appoint the Commissioners that Presi
