I intend, rer.tlemen. to content myself with
thanking you for. the honor of presiding over
your deliberations, end briefly with reminding
you that we have three great duties before us
•d SSsCbaxßaVi all of them important and serious,
but easy to perfuruo. i
In the first place, we have the muty of nomi
nating- here to-day and electing 'in November
next Myron T Herrick to b* Governor of Ohio.
Hsutlj that will be easy. It v.ii! be easy be

Our second duty is broader, more Important,

clectlns Senator Banna to be his own sue
«^*sfor. That is co easy that If let alone It will

MT« arc going' to do it because Senator Fiaona
during the MHst fix years has rendered dis

€latt£. 2 thought, zs ac stood upon this plat
form, bom- differently he Is regarded by bis
count»yn*«en to-day from whe' he was when he

litrdlv a uswapapar in th« cocntry. not even In
his own party, that did not seem to delight in

And to we intend to keep on refeJecting him

we hope he may live forever.
XI,. third duty to which I have referred IS ;
*-ct brwider, more important, more serious, but,
if possible, eicotr etill. if anything could be

to be his own successor. We intenJ to do this

the duties of thn Presidency under the most

It Is a eubject of congratulation, my friende.

for President, while they are not

••onal demand upon our State, and we hereby
cordially promise him the undivided support of
the entire Republican party of Ohio.
Governor 'Ceorse K. Nash, with his able as
sistantE in the State offices, for their faithful
and successful administration deserve the gen
erous commendation and gratitude of the people.
In Ohio, as In the nation.. republican achieve
ments compel popular approval. Our State debt
is cancelled, the cash surplus in our treasury- Is
at record figures, the Slate institutions were
never more efficiently or economically con
ducted, and yet the State tax rate has been re
duced by half through Kepubliean laws,
whereby corporate interests are required to bear
a more equitable t-haro of the burden of taxa
tion, so far as is possible under the constitu
tional restriction of Ohio's present organic law.
We favor removing limitations which prevent a
more Just system of taxation, co that property
can be adequately classified for taxation pur
poses, and invite the most careful consideration
of the amendment for that purpose to be voted
upon at the election next November.
Ohio ought not to discriminate longer against
her own corporations, thus cutting off possible
revenues and other benefits., and we therefore
favor and indorse the amendment to remove the
present provision in our State Constitution of
the double liability of stockholders.
We also favor the amendment* to vest the
Governor with the veto power and to provide for
county legislative districts, so that each county
will have at least one member In the lower
house of each General Assembly, and we author
ize our indorsement of these amendments upon
our official ballots.
The home waterways, the Ohio public works,
can be modernised at a cost so moderate as not
to weigh against the vast benefits to be derived.
They started our State on its prosperity, put
millions into its treasury and can do so again
if. instead of the perpetual threat of abandon
ment, they are accorded a degree of encour
agement commensurate with their Importance,
and we favor their maintenance upon a basis
of efficiency creditable to the State and adapted
to the traffic necessities of our growing com
The question of transportation is one of the
most important business problems now before
The American people for determination. The
full utilization of our Inland waterways Is de
manded by all business interests. We therefore
favor the continued improvement by the gen
eral government of the Ohio River, that a navi
gable stage of water may be maintained the
entire year.
The seventy-fifth General Assembly also
shares Justly in the praise due for the scop*
and excellence of its accomplished results. The
taneled confusion of special laws for all the
cities and villages of Ohio has given place to
a systematic municipal code, conformable to the
constitution, and promising to work well wher
ever properly administered by competent offi
cials. We also commend to the attention of the
voters of Ohio the pending amendment to the
constitution for dividing the cities into three
Am Republican legislation has always provided
work for these who would work, while Demo
cratic free trade has produced the opposite re
sult, so the labor laws. State and National.
have been largely of Republican origrin. We
favor their extension in every way equitable to
all. particularly those designed to promote har
monious conditions and to secure for labor just
recognition in th- settlement of differences.
Public welfare derrands this quite as much us
the lull— of employers and employed.
Better roads would save Ohio citizens millions
of dollars yearly, and should be systematically
established* They are especially needed on ac
count at the. rural free mail delivery system, for
which the demand is now wellnigh
Inaugurated by Republicans, a Democratic ad
ministration refused it a trial, and Republican*
have now proved its value. We favor the ex
tension of the system as rapidly as possible
wherever desired.
Public improvements have in-rarlablr been
favored by the Republican party, benefiting the
entire country many times their total cost
Every citizen interested In better rivers and
harbors, public highways, improved po«tal eer
vk;©. forest preservation, flood prevention, the
great isthmian canal, and other enterprises of
like character, has c rishtful home only in the
Republican party, where progress has never
been opposed. .
Nearly paid to pensioners since
the Republican party came into power, almost
all of it tinder legislation enacted without a dlf-
eesting Republican vote in Congress, but al
ways against Democratic opposition, attests the
contrast between the parties in this respect ana
yet farther liberality was evidenced by the pen
sion legislation of the last Congress.
The improvement in our relations with the
Philippine Inlands is attested by the reduction
of our army to the lowest legal limit. Education
and enlightenment under hroadmind«d admir.
isfative" policy are gradually obviating the
noefeSEjty for control through military power,
and we commend the rapid and steady progress
made in the .preparation of the Philippines for
the fullest practicable degree of ■ Gelf-govern
rr.ent. In this connection we voice the grateful
acknowledgment of the nation for the splendid
fen-ice; in the Philippines «f th«i : di«inguißh«d

velt our foreign policy of equity to all has mace
the United States the peacemaker of the world.
Guarding weaker nations from aggression and
living the Monroe Doctrine a vital force greater
than ever before. . n .
As America's part in preserving the peace of
thTworld. we indorse the Republican policy of
d-veloping the United States Navy to the high
est efficiency, and we favor every encourage
ment possible to our merchant marine in the ex
tension of American commerce in American

To the Editor cf Tlie Trlbuhft.
Sir: Some days ajro The Tribune containod a
reference to the small park which it is proposed to
create adjacent to Plymouth Church, and which It
has been further proposed shall be named in honor
of Henry Ward Beecher. The writer of the
article may have been careless, but was more prob
ably misled, and eeemed to assume that this park
project orictnated in Plymouth Church and was
beini: pushed by th« members of that church and
as part of the general movement for a memorial
to -Mr. Beeeher. As chairman of the executive
committee of this memorial movement 1 crave
ppaee enough to say that the proposed park '.« no
feature of our enterprise. Dr. IJHUs broached the
memorial In a Sunday morning sermon. On the
very next day he was waited upon by certain public
spirited men not in any way connected with
Plymouth Church, who told him they had been for
some weeka working along the proper lines to pro
pose to the Board of Estimate a park on the block
where Plymouth Church stands. This th«y were
doing because they believed the ne'ghbornooil
needed a small park, and as they thought it would
make it much more popular thry were gotru; to
propose to the city authorities that it should be
named after Mr. Beecber. I live so far from that
part of the city that I felt It would be improper for
me to take any part in the discussion of this pro
posed neighborhood park. 7 have seen enough to
convince me that the people of the vicinity, regard
less of their church affiliations, very much desire
It and I should greatly regret if any word of mine
ueemed to be- in the least discouraging of the enter
prise. but what I wifoh to nay is. that it lias no
connection with the work of thos» of us who aw

To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: May I say. as a member of the American
Society of Civil Engineers, in relation to, but not
in opposition to. your very fair editorial of this
morning, that the generally accepted definition of
a civil engineer Is one who directs the sources of
natural power to the service of mankind? This
ie held to cover naval, mining, mechanical, e!«e-
Tr!ea! and other professional engineers, with archi
tects who ca# calculate the strength of their
building!, and marine architects, with military en
gineers, who have been engaged on public improve
ments, and professors of engineering of suiticient
experience and standing. There has also been one
ordnance engineer, but that was a matter of per
sonal popularity rather than strict construction.
Any person as above denned may he elected a
member of the American society if he has bad
ten years' practice In this profession, •with respon
sible charge of work, and has shown himself com
petent to design as well as execute the same. Con
nected with this society, but without the power of
voting:, are those commencing their profession, and
others, not engineers, possessing technical or prac
tical knowledge in special pursuits.
Included in the terms of Mr. Carnegie's munifi
cent offer are. in addition to the civil engineers.
three specialized societies, viz.. the mining, me
chanical and electrical engineers, with the En
gineers* Club, an admirable social organization,
but with a membership not confined to engineers.
Kach of the three societies of specialists has a
pood many members in the American Society of
Civil Engineers, and all four of the technical so
cieties contribute to the membership of the En
gineers' Club. so that there is a very substantial
community of Interest, with much personal attach
ment, among the members cf the different or
There are, however, two rather discordant ele
meats to the proposed combination: First— The
American Society of Civil Engineers, which for
over fifty years has endeavored to maintain a high
standard of honor and technical ability in all con
nected with it. nnd has. iv addition to publishing
many volumes of engineering informa ion, accumu
lated a capital fairly valued at |£><UOO. Second—
The Engineers' Club, which has possibly been a
little easy in its requirements for membership and
hats no capital. It is thought that conservative
members of all four of the technical societies ob
ject to the intimate association proposed with a.
social clun. . -
Possibly I have troubled you with a too ex
haustive statement of the environment, but a gift
of f1.0n0.000, to be devoted greatly to public uses, by
Mr Carnegie Is of considerable Interest to the city
of New- York and is of vita.l interest to toe En
■uuers' Club, On the other hand, the members of
the American Society of Civil Engineers may object
to, DUttics in peril, by an amalgamation, their well
earned position, which they think is of great value
not only to them, but to their country, and their
possible action may be denounced as narrow mind ea.

Sir: Apropos of the present as+ratiern of the so
called negro problem and the formidable agitation
which has for its aim the paving of a way that
might lead to the ultimate repeal of the Fourteenth
and Fifteenth amendments. I consider it timely to

put of gold has been greatly beyond what they
expected. I think that excuse is ridiculous. For.
assuming that bimetallism was correct In theory,
then the enormous output of gold would be so
much benefit, added to the benefits which they
claimed would result from bimetallism.
Tor my part, I no longer bold, as 1 did ten years
ago. that the United States can oppose the whole
world and "establish bimetallism without the aid
or consent of any other nation on earth." It Is
not merely an American Question. It is a world
question. It must be treated accordingly, or it
cannot be treated Intelligently.
I no longer hold that 16 to 1 is, or was. a proper
ratio to select. I think the obstinate insistence on
that ratio »vas a monumental blunder. According
to the arguments of those who insisted on that
particular ratio, if 16 to 1 would Keep up the

President Makes Last Speech of Trip
at Cannon's Home.
Danville, 111.. June 4.— President Roosevelt de
livered th« last scheduled speech of hi* long
trip h«re, the home of Congressman Cannon,
this evening. Notwithßtanding th>j inclement
weather he wa» greeted by a large crowd. The
atop here was only twenty minutes long, and
he started for Indianapolis, whence he will go dl
rest to Washington.
The last day's trip was, in a measure, an easy
one. Stops were made only at Lincoln. Spring
field, Decatur and Danville. ' Th© principal
speech of the day>was delivered at Bprtn*:neld
in the new armory building.
The President this evening was the guest at
dinner of the members of hi« party. The meal
was served in the dining car QBHK the guests
resides the President being Secretary Wilson,
Secretary Loeb. Senators Bavertdee and Fair
banks. Surgeon General Rixey and Assistant
Secretary Barnes.
Two Brief Speeches and a Eeception in
Springfield. HI.. June <.— President Roosevelt «pent
four hours in Springfield to-day, In which time he
defeated the new State ar*en*l and armcry and
addressed the Lineoln-MeKintey Veteran Voters'
Association at the Lincoln Meaument. The Presi
dent's special train arrived over the Chicago and
Alton road at 10:15 o'clock, and was* greete-i with
toe Presidential salute. Business and private houses
were elaborately decorated. Frora the railway sta
tion to the arsenal the President was escorted
through lines of cheering people by Governor Yates;
Stale, federal, county and city officials, the recep
tion committee, two troops of the Ist Cavalry and
the stli Infantry. Illinois National Guard. On each
side of Cn.pltol-a.ve.. between Sfarth-st. and the
State House, were massed five thousand «hool
children, who waved flag* as the procession passed.
Among the thousands who beard the President
speak were the member* ot Conapaxiy H. of the
eta Regiment (colored), L N- G. Alter greeting
tie Veterans* Association, the President said:
It se-sms to me eminently fitting that the guard
around the tomb of Lincoln should be composed of
colored soldiers. '-'- was my own good fortune at
Santiago to serve beside colored troops. A man
who is good enough to shed his blood for his coun
try is good enough t& be given a square d«al alter
ward. More than that no man is entitled to. and
less than that no man shall have.
The party then returned to the arsenal, where
the dedication exercises took place before ten thou
sand persons assembled In the great hall. Senator
Culioxn in Introducing the President said he didn't
know how many times hereafter Mr. Roosevelt
might be President, and . called for three cheers,
which were given standing. Th« President said in
I have met in Illinois many men who knew Lin
coln personally, and at every place that I have
stopped I have seen men who fought In the army
when Lincoln called the country to arms. All of us
now. lolcine back over the last forty years, can see
the figure of Lincoln, sad. kindly, patient Lin
coln, as it comes above his contemporaries, as it
will loom ever larger through the centuries to come.
It is a good thing ttrr us by speech to pay homage
to the memory of Abraham Lincoln, but it is an
Infinitely better thing lor us in our lives to pay
homage to his memory iv the only way which that
homage can be effectively paiu, by seeing to it that
this republic's life, social and political, civic and
Industrial, is shaped now in accordance with the
Ideals whioh Lincoln preached, and which all his
life through he practised.
Luncheon was served at the executive mansion,
after which the President received the locai recep
tion committee and the Hamilton Club, of Chicago,
which had coma down in a body.
