DEFENSE NEEDS DEFENSE.
When it was announced that President Taft would address the
League of Republican Clubs at Washington, and that Attorney Gen
era! Wickcrsham, at the same time,- would deliver an address in
Chicago, it was explained that both addresses were to be the be
ginning of an aggressive defense of the administration.

ported that he pounded the table with his fist when he said things
about the insurgent Republican members of qongrcss, which made
his clackers shout "great," "bully for you," 'fnow you're talking,"
''that's what we want to hear," etc.

Sundays at Tlkiwara s playing euchre,

Ravenscralg in charge Sundays.
At five o'clock the navvies departed,
and the roasted second sought shelter
in hl3 tent. He saw, lying on his
stretcher, an envelope addressed t
'himself. It was in Hlamoe's hand
writing. In breathless, sentences the
writer told of the great shame which
had come to Hlaome; of the $500
which Tlklrawa owed Ruku Te HI
anga and which Ruku did not want
repaid; of Ruku's intention of carry
ting Hiaome off to a distant kalnga,
where he owned ahouse of which she

Tlkirawa's complicity, Hiamoe wrote
that Farley was cognizant pf these
things, and that he and Sullen were
.to be present that night at Tlkirawa's
kalnga, where Ruku was giving a
feast in honor of the event.
Outside again one glance told Ra-i
