BUTTE ROYALLY ENTERTAINS
PRESIDENT WILLIAM H. TAFT
THROUGH THE NEWSWRITERS
Newspaper Men of the Smoky
City Are Hosts at Break
fast for the Distinguished
Head of the Nation.
Butte, Oct. 19.-(Speclal.)-Beaming
with pleasure and joyousness during
tilhe three hours tie remained in Butte,
President William M. Taft enjoyed
himself to the litlit tilts morning when
he was the guest of tije news writers'
,organizatiol of the city at the Silver
Bow club. He enjoyed a swift motor
jaunt about the city and across the
summlU.t of the range overlooking the
city, speeding past the state school of
iul:es and back again into town, where
'le .was greeted iy thousands.
The presildential train was late In
arriving and It.was at the station for
solnme time before the executive
emerged wearing his shining tile and
buttoned closely at the throat. He
smiled and Wits happy, despite the fact
that the air was cool and crisp, so
vastly different from the balmy breczt;s
of Califnrnia and the Nevada desert.
The auto to the Silver Bow club was
taken at once and no time was lost
until breakfast was served. When
the presldent entered, the diners arose
and gave vent to cheers.
At the Table.
At the left of the president sat J. H.
D)urston, toastlnaster, and Chief Jus
tice Brantly sat at his right. Senator
])lxobl was next to the chief Justice and
Governor Norris was seated by Mr.
Durston's side. All conversed pleas
antly with the presidient and after a
bri.f address hy Mr: Durston, Presl
dlent Taft talked interestingly for a
lhort time. He spoke 'pleasantly of
his relations with Inewpaper men and
said that much of their criticism was
a help to hhn and showed a 'healthy
tendency, when they wrote of public
officials.
"Mootana shows a better tendency
that other states," said the president.
"The last census brings forth tile fact
that the people of this state are going
to the country instead of to the city.
That is a good sign and I believe It
will continue, fhr when Brother Bill in
the city sees his practice slipping
away froim him, he will turn to the
farm where Brother Johni is making a
good income. Men go where they
llrosper slid if they make 'more lllonley
In the country than they dlo in the city
they will return there. We need peo
pie In the country, for the crop of
bahll is good, regardless of the other
crops, and In 50 years we will have
200,000,000 of people to feed In tills
country."
One feature of the breakfast was
that Judges Bourquin, Winston and
Cheadle sat directly opposite the preal
dent, all aspirants for the federal
Judgeship recently vacated by t'arl
Ranch. The president expressed no
choice,
"Ropily the Grizzly,." a celebrated
painting by Charles M. Rulmsell, Mon
tana's cowboy artist, was presented to
Mr. Taft by President ('harlles F.
Degelman of tile newswrlters. The
piresident thanked the writers heartily
for their gift. Each of the guests was
presented with a copper medallion
bearing tile president In relief with tile
date of his visit to Butte and on the
reverse side the great seal of Mon
tana. Prominent men from every sec
tioll of the state were present.
InInediately after the breakfast tile
party with the -'60 invited guests were
whirled on their auto jaunt, after
which the open air address was made
before 10,000 persons. Mr. Durston
introlduced (G'overnor Edwin L. Norris
who welcomed the pireuldent to the
state and declared that the only fault
Montana had to find with the national
capital was that it was not located in
this state, si that the people of Mon
tana might see more of the president.
Following the address the president
left Immediately for tile Northern Pa
clfic station, where lie started on his
way east, accompanied by Governor
Norris.
