Secretary Wilson Says the Senti
ment Is Ovenchelming.
Washington. June o.— Secretary Wilson, who
returned 10 Washington with the President after
poire weeks spent in the States of the Middle
W^<t. said to-day that the whole West is heart
and soul for the election of President Roosevelt
to succeed himself.
•Purinp my trip through the Western States."
faid Secretary Wilson, "1 took occasion to in
vestigate the political situation thoroughly. I
had excellent opportunity to test the real feel
ing of the country, and the result of my personal
Investigation along these lines is the conclusion
that the people of the West are overwhelmingly
for Roosevelt. 1 know of a number of Demo
rrat? who were asked Jf they wanted four more
years of Cleveland as the head of the admin
istration of the country. Their answer was that
they regarded Roosevelt as pood enough for
them, arid that they proposed to vote for him.
"What are the reasons the Western people
pive? They like the manly way in which he has
handled public questions during his administra
tion; they like the attitude he takes in enforcing
the law for and against the rich citizen and the
poor citizen alike. His popularity among the
masses is something remarkable. President Me-
JOnley led the people out of dire distress into
jiro?r priJ y. and managed the American
War in a manner that was entirely satisfactory
to nearly • very American citizen. He sub-
Fisr.iiany completed all that work.. The re
sponsibilities, however, that have met President
Roosevelt have been new and unique. The peo
ple are alarmed at the movements of great com
binations of capital. President Roosevelt has
enforced the law- as he found it to exist, and he
pot the decision in favor of the government in
ih<* famous railroad merger case. Then he asked
for further legislation to enable him to inquire
Into the actual conditions. He was satisfied
when he COl that legislation, and discouraged
drastic legislation tnat might have interfered
with business. The people are pleased that he
rtopped the great distress in so many families
occasioned by the coal stria*. They approve en
tirely, these people in the (real Western States,
of his policy of conserving the peace through the
maintenance of a strong navy. They are pleased
with the reorganization of the army and with
the legislation putting th* militia of the country
m a more healthy footing. They are heartily in
«ccord with the open door policy for the Orient.
They do not want their trade interfered with In
China and the other countries of the Far East,
ana cordially indorse the action that Secretary
Hay and his department have taken along these
Unes These are the reasons that the Western
people give you for reins so enthusiasts for
Roosevelt for their next President."

seriously concerned over the sale by auction of the
Spanish copper coin remaining In the Philippines.

Reduction in Savings Bank Tax Offset by
Gains in Other Revenue.
Bangor. Me.. June 6 (Special).— Last winter the
Maine Legislature reduced the tax on saving*
banks, and by so doing precipitated a stubborn con
test at the close of the session. Ever since the
tax on savings banks was first imposed, thirty
years ago. half the money thus raised has been
devoted to the support of schools, and when the
tax was reduced the friends of education, fearing
that the schools would suffer a loss of revenue, in
troduced a bill increasing the proportion of the tax
devoted to schools from a half to five-eighths. Th*
advocates of tax reduction opposed this, declaring
that the increase of deposits in the banks, upon
which the tax is based, would make up largely, If
not entirely for the reduction in rate.

Reformed Theological Students Must
Get Consent to Marry.
Asbury Park, N. .1.. June 6 (Special).— Those i
sturdy churchmen who have stood out against a
revision of the liturgy of the Reformed Church
gained a partial victory in the General Synod to- !
day, when the report of the special committee to !
prepare new church forms was under discussion.
This report recommended an entirely new form for
the communion service. The Rev. Dr. George S.
Bishop, of East Orange, led the opposition forces,
insisting that the old communion form be retained.
There was a long debate when a compromise was
agreed to. it being decided to' print both the old •
and the new forms in the liturgy and permit min
isters to use. the one they deemed best suited to
their congregations. The same action was taken
in relation to the baptismal form at the request of
the Western churches. The report of the revision
committee, with few slight changes, was then
adopted in its entirety. The new liturgy will now
be "sent down" to the various classes for ratifica
Students attending the New-Brunswick Theo
logical Seminary, which "is fostered by the Re
lormed Church, must hereafter first obtain the con
sent of the faculty before they marry. A violation
of this rule, adopted by the Synod to-day, means
suspension from the institution. The rule promul
gated to-day is the work of the Board of Professor
ate and Theological Seminaries, and is a compro
mise edict, the old rule providing that students at
tending the New-Brunswick: Seminary would be
expelled if they entered into the marriage state
