TAFT sws DEMOCRATIC POWER
WILL Midi TOWARDS
Tills END,
President says Wilson's XdmlnUtra
Iknj Will Dring Uood, By Patting
Houtli Closer to Government?
Washington, Nov. 12,?Greater op?
portunity to give the South a "feel"
Ing of ownership" in the government
will be given the Wodrow Wilson ad?
ministration than was accorded the
present Republican regime, President
Taft told the United Daughters of the
Confederacy tit the opening session
of their annual convention here to?
night
The president declared that "cir?
cumstances have rendered it more dif?
ficult for a Republican administration
than for a Democratic one to give our
Southern brothers and sisters the feel?
ing of close relationship and owner?
ship in the government of the United
States."
Activity of the Southerners in of?
ficial life consequent to Democratic
control of the government, he said,
would gi\?> the South a feeling of a
partnership in the conduct of the
country's affairs that would do much
toward eliminating sectional feeling.
A great crowd of the Daughters
gathered at the opening "welcome
session" of the oonventlon to hear the
president.
Mrs, Marion Butler, president of
the District of Columbia division of
the daughters, presided and delivered
the opening address of the welcome,
Cuno Z. Rudolph, president of the dis?
trict commission, welcomed the
daughters on behalf of the city and
the president followed.
President Taft said the occasion
that brought the daughters together
"Wgj not the mourning at the bier of
a lost, cause, * they met to celebrate
the heroism, courage and sacrifice of
the men of the South. He declared
North and South alike should rejoice
in the "common heritage" left by the
war and that while the greater hor?
rors of the war which visited the
South made it n..?re difficult for the
feeling of hostility to die out there
than in the North, the sectional line
was at. last entirety disappearing.
"Until within recent decades," the
president said, "prosperity has not
shed her boon of Comfort upon the
South with so generous a hand as
upon the North. Hence those of us in
the North who have been sometimes
impatient at a little Hash now and
then of the old sectional antagonism,
are unreasonable In our failure to ap?
preciate these marked differences.
"For years after the war the Re?
publican party which had carried the
nation through the war to its success?
ful conclusion was in control of the
administration of the government and
it was Impossible for the Southerner
to escape the feeling that he was
linked in his allegiance to an alien na?
tion and one with whose destiny he
found it difficult to identify himself.
"Time, however, cures much, and
after a while there came a Demo?
cratic administration of four years
and then another one of four years.
Southerners were called to federal of?
fices; they came to have more and
more Influence In tho hulls of congress
and In the senate and the responsi?
bility of the government brought with
it a sense of closer relationship.
"1 speak for my Republican prede?
cessors in office when 1 say that they
all labored to bring the Sections more
closely together, l am sure I can say
that so far as in me has lain, 1 have
left nothing undone to reduce the sec?
tional feeling and to make the di?
visions of our country geographical
only. But I am free to admit that
Circumstances have rendered it more
difficult for a Republican administra?
tion than for a Democratic adminis?
tration to give to our Southern broth?
ers and sisters the feeling of closer re?
lationship and Ownership In the gov?
ernment of the United States.
Thus In solving the mystery
of that providential dispensation
which now brings on a Democratic
administration to succeed this, we
must admit the good in a more uon
formed sense of partnership in this
government Which our brothers and
sisters of the Southland Will enjoy
in an administration in which South?
ern opinion will naturally have great?
er Influence and the South greater
proportionate representation in the
i ahmet, in congress and In other high
official stations, While 1 rejoli e In
