TAFT FOR PRESIDDENT.
A Flood of Talk In Washington
About His Increasing Political
The Washington correspondent of
the News and Courier says that ob
servers of southern republican poli
tics in Washington are wondering
whether Postmaster General Cortel
you's continned encumbency as na
tional chairman is haviiig anything to
do with Secretary of War Taft's
presidential prospects. Mr. Cortel
you keeps holding on and is so se
cretive about his reasons that no one
really knows w.hv he did not let go.
He announced that Col. Harry New,
'21 Indiana. would be ~appointed chair
man along toward midnight one day
two or three weeks ago.
WVhen do you retire from the
chairmanship?" one asked him over
"At once." replied M\r. Cortelyou.
"This appointment of Mr. New and
my retirement will become effective
A little before that Ex-Governor
I)urbin, of Indiana, was in town, look
ing after the interests of Col. New in
obtaining the vice-chairmanship.
When he came here Mr. Durbin was
not committed to any presidential
candidate in particular, but just be
fore he departed. after having had a
long and earnest talk with Mr. Cor
telyou, the ex- governor announced
that Secretary of War Taft was the
-man, unless something unforeseen de
It has been noted lately also that
i.fluential business men, like Senator
Elkins, of West Virginia, is picking
Secretary Taft as the likely nominee,
contingent, of course, upon the doz
ens of things that may arise between
now and the next national convention
to change the situation. The secre
tarv is well liked by the substantial
business interests that will look aftei
getting a steady man into the running
next time. He also has considerabl<
popularity in the country. More that
any other republican he can commani
the Catholic support. which Presi
dent Roosevelt has carefully culti
vated and w.hich secured him manN
votes last November.
The ability of Secretary Taft to se
*zure southern delegates has been dis
cussed here. In no section of th<
country will it be easier for Presiden
Roosevelt to make the federal office
holders do his bidding in the choic<
of delegates. His own popularity ha:
been increasing in the south, whici
enhances the probability that he cai
swing votes for any republican whor
bhe would like to designate as his suc
<cessor. That he does incline toward
Taft there is no reason to questior

(n. If Secretary Taft gets a good
lead in northern states and has the
support of Roosevelt. the polit;cians
say he wil! easily secure a big block
of southern delegates.
There is a flood of talk here in in
ner circles about the secretary's in
creasing presideptial prospects, but
he himself continues to put little
credence in it. The secretary thinks
his numerous decisions on the circuit
bench in Ohio. during the troublous
period of Cleveland's second admin
istration, might return to plague him
as a presidential candidate. He was
one of the first United States judges
to enforce "government by injunc
tion." for which he became very un
popular among the laboring classes.
Iowever. the secretary's friends
doubt whether that would affect him
now, as the administration has been
applying the injunction doctrine to
trusts and big combines.
The Wife, The Church, The $5
Irving Parke allowed himself to be
persuaded to accompany his wife to
church and, of course, after he got
there he found that part of the ser
vice was devoted to raising a small
fund for church repairs. His first
feelings of resentment wore away un
der the pleadings of the preacher, and
when his wife handed $5 to the usher
he thought of the economy she must
have practiced to have saved that
much out of her allowance.
But the fund still lacked a small
sum of being complete, and as the
other man spoke a good ward for the
cause, at the same time giving from
their cash surplus, Mr. Parke felt the
spirit possessing him.
"We all want to see our church
kept in good repair," he said, "and I
will supplement my wife's gift with
As he said this he felt in his fob
pocket for a $5 bill, which he had
placed there the night before. It was
gone. He felt in other pockets, his
embarrassment growing each mo
ment, and then, as if an inspiration
had come upon him, he turned an ac
cusing look on his wife.
Mrs. Parke flushed, the congrega
tion., which had been enjoying the
scene, burst into laughter, contribu
tions were called off for the day, and
the preacher pronounced the benedic

AL Aut Rheumatism.
s There are few diseases that inflict
more torture than rheumatism and
- there is probably no disease for which
, such a varied and useless lot of rem
edies have been suggested. To say
that it can be cured is, therefore, a
bold statement to make, but Chamber
lain's Pain Balm, which enjoys an ex
tensive sale, has met- with great suc
cess in the treatment of this disease.
e One application of Pain Balm will re
lieve the pain, and hundreds of suf
ferers have testified to permanent cures
C by its use. Why suffer when Pain
Balm affords such quick relief and
costs but a trifle? For sale by Smith
