committed them are immediately cited

This unique photograph was taken as Mrs. Philander C. Knox, wife of
the secretary of state, was being sw ung aboard the cruiser Maryland, in
a curiously contrived "trolley chair" while the secretary's party was paying
a diplomatic visit to Acajuatla. Sn Salvador. The peculiar formation of
the Pacific coast at this point and the unusually rough condition of the
water made it impossible to leave or reach the cruiser by means of a
launch or row boat, and it was necessary to string a great cable from the
ship to the land, and send the dlstln gulshed visitors ashore by means of the
trolley chair. (Photo copywright by International News Service.)

great extent overshadows the contests
over state officers, some of which
have been running for months.
On the Republican side, the contest
between the followers of president
Taft and the supporters of Roosevelt
is now at white heat and each fac
