Taft Declares Talk of Him for Pres

SI. Louis. February 24.-Secretary (
of War William H . Taft, the guest
if iinor at the aiinual banquet t)f the:
Western Federatil(n of Yale clbs, at

Secretary Taft does not agree with
the expressed views of military au
thorities that the United States is apt t
to have war with China. "The
Boxer movement may be repeater,"
said he, "but the Government of
China has much better control over
the masses than it had a few years t
ago. I do not look for a serious up- i
rising in China. The United States
will be prepared to act if the emer

he believed the Senate would pass the
Philippine tariff bill and that the
question of railroad rate legislation
would be settled.
"How is the Panama Canal pro
'Fine," was the enthusiastic an- 1
swer. -Chief Engineer Stevens is
there, and there hasn 't been a case
of vellow fever at Panama since Nov

The head of the war department;
had just finished an hour's confer-!
ence with Brig Gen. J. Franklin Bell,
commander of Fort Leavenworth, who,'
on April 14, becomes a major general I
and chief of staff of the army.
Secretary Taft admitted Gen Bell t
had been summoned from Fort Lea-,]
venworth to meet him in St. Louis,
but said they had conference strictlyt
on department matters which he was
not at liberty to discuss.4
ALL JUJMPED AT IT.
Pages Played a Joke- on Members of
Speaker Cannon found a roll of
bills o-n the floor of the house but as
they were not the kind which either
banks or congress will pass, he decid
ed not to keel) them. Page boys on
the republican side of the chamber
planned a joke on some of the good
natured members, an2i unsuspectingly
and much to the temporary discomfit
ure of the lads, "Uncle Joe"' fell in-:
to their trap. The boys got a bundle
of "Cassie Chadwick'' money, the
kind with yellow backs, which looks
quite like real stuff at first glance, and
while the house was wearily grinding
out claim measures, sought to enliven
matters by placing a roll of this bo
gus currency upon the floor near the
republican cloak rooni.
Representative Mudd, of Maryland,
came by, and it caused him to stumble.
He picked it up, muttered something
under his breath, dropped it. Next
came along Representative Butler, of
Pennsylvania. He took it as a good:
joke, and laughed as he replaced the
roll upon the floor for some other
member to find. Representative
Flack, of New York, whose seat is
near the cloak room door, nearly fell
from his chair in an effort to get the
roll. He laughed too. Meanwhile the
pages were upon the point of explod
ing with mirth.
A moment later "Uncle Joe,'' an
unlighted cigar at an angle of 45 de
grees in his mouth, sauntered along.
His eye caught sight of the yellow
roll, and he leaped at it like a hawk
upon a wounded sparrow. A glance
told him what it was. Then he care
fully concealed it in his hands, looked
cautiously up at the galleries and then
over the floor of the house. No one
apparently was watching him, and he
dropped the roll to the floor and con
tinued his promenade. This time the
boys did not laugh, but they immedi
ately withdrew the money from circu
lation. ''Uncle Joe'' appreciated the
joke and was too good natured to
chastise the boys.

The story of the making of our na
