ilso mado answer to the recent agl- .
catlon for a "new nationalism" or a

declarlng that tlie only safe course to
pursue was to hold fast to tho limlta
tlona of the Constltutlon and to re?
gard as sacred the power of the States.
Mr. Taft, amtd applause, made fre
quent references to the servlces of
Theodore Roosevelt In the cause of ?

to tho congress that lt should Invlto
