President Taft has decided that

The president's views in regar- *o
the matter were made known in a let

name is not disclosed.
"He." says Secretary Norton, re

The letter in part follows:
"While Republican legislation pen
ding in congress was opposed by cer
tian Republicans, the president felt
it to be his duty to the party and to
the country to withho'd federal pa
tronage from certain senators and
congressmen who seemed to be in
opposition to the administration's ef
forts to carry out the promise. if the
"That attitude, however, ended
with the primary elections and nom

held. and in wheh the voters hav.

"The president feels that the valut
f federal patronage has been great

o grant it has probably been more
aseful to the men affected than the
