SENATOR JAMES A. O'GOrWIAA.
'TAFT IS CONFIDENT
OF HIS RE-ELECTION
Washington. Juna -?.?Confidence
In the re-election of President Taft
was the noticeable feature of to
day's events at the White House,
where many distinguished Republican I
leaders, just hack from Chicago, call?
ed on the President to talk of the
convention and of the future.
Representative McKinley, who was
the Taft manager in the campaign
tight that ended successfully at
Ch'cago, spent three hours with
President Taft last night, and more
than an hour this morning. Mr. Mc?
Kinley said he was glad the cam?
paign was over, lie said he had gone
Into it last winter with the distinct
understanding that he would be al?
lowed to retire after the convention,
and he would do ho.
Mr. McKinley said that tho execu?
tive committee of nine of the Repub?
lican .National Committee will be In
Washington next Monday and will
then arrange tho elate for the official
notification to Mr. Taft, and at the
same time pick a chairman of the
committee who Will coneluct the presi?

dent's private secretary, will he made j
chairman of ihe committee. "Ho will |
be an excellent man for the position,"
said Mr. McKinley. "He has done
some tine work In tho last five months.

Mr. McKinley smiled broadly over
the statement of Colonel Roosevelt

Mr. McKinley then paid high praise
to the negro lielegrates of the South,

"They showed thoi:- manhood and'

that negro delegates hud bu n tempted

were great. All offers, though, wore i

dent is deeply pleased with the manly
Stand of the negro delegates."
Senator Bradley, of Kentucky, also
praised the negro delegates. "Thoj
blui k man stood firm for ltis honor
und tho right at Chicago." said the
Ki ntucky Senator, who hud seen the.
President, und who predicts the re?
election of the President.
Other visitors to the President
were Senators Smooth, Sutherland,
Curtis. Guggenheim and Jones and
Representatives Mondell. Pray, Dod.is

William Herri, of Brooklyn, a del

Chicago convention, talked some time
kwlth President Tuft to-day, and was
the President's guest at luncheon lat?

."There is only or." Democrat who j
could carry that State against the
President and he will not he nomi?

velt hns no Chance In New York, und |
I believe that he will eventually con- I
.l?de not to attempt to make the
race for President at tho head of tue
new party ticket."
The first Cabltiol meeting since the
nomination of the President was held:
to-day, and there was much political
gossip, although the precarious status I
of a number of the appropriation bills ;
also came up for discussion.

Mr. Bryan claimed the right to
