Sheldon, treasurer of the committee, returned from Chicago yesterday and buckled right down to work that had accumulated in his absence He said he did not think there would be much to interest the general public in his end of the cam paign until after .-lection, when the names of the contributors will he made public. In regard to a statement that he had been obliged to return checks from a number of corporations, Mr. Sheldon said it was true, as there is a federal law to the efTect that "no corporation with a fed eral charter or any corporation whatever" s'.-all contribute to a national campaign. Mr. Sheldon said the corporations did not know of the law. Indeed, he said, he did not believe many people wore aware of it. He did not know it himself until several days after his appointment as treasurer "It covers the ground fully, however." said Mr. Sheldon, "and we cannot receive corporal money. As a matter of justice, however. I do not see why the Steel Trust, for Instance, should be forbidden to contribute to the election of an administration which it believes would be of benefit to Its busi ness while a private steel manufacturer may con tribute to the same end." The lan In question was passed .1 year ag spring. !t was h tiill emanating from the Commit tee < n the Election of President and Vice President of the House, of which Congressman Galnes, of West Virgin! rmaa. Mr. Sheldon laid that some lawyer? held that Concr»-tis had no right to Bay what a o'niorntion doin^ business under .1 state charter should do in the way of campaign contributions.

Plans Impromptu Speeches—Cheer ing Letters from Various States. [By TVlegraph to Th* Tribune. 1 $ Hot Springs. Va.. Aug. 17.— 1n discussing his plans for the campaign. William H. Taft made it known to-day that it was not his purpose to deliver a series of set speeches, as it has been announced Mr. Bryan will do, but that he would rather depend on the delegations which call upon him in Cincinnati for the inspiration of his addresses. Mr. Taft said that he believed he had already covered in his letter of accep tance and in the speeches delivered before he was nominated, practically every phase of his political faith, and every issue which would be before the people in his coming campaign. His utterances in Cincinnati, he said, would there fore be largely a reiteration of his political and economic tenets, and in «he choice of subjects he would be largely guided by the character of his callers, while his remarks would consist al most exclusively .of an elaboration of those propositions which he had already laid down, Of course, it is not to be understood that this will prevent the Republican candidate from an swering any new assertions which may be made by the Bryanites. or from exposing elaborately any novel vagaries which the "Peerless Leader" may introduce into his campaign. In fact, it is Mr Taft's purpose to devote him self at some length to Mr. Bryan's speech of acceptance on Virginia Day, which is to be cele brated at Hot Springs next Friday The more the Republican candidate has examined this ut terance of his opponent the more vulnerable it has appeared, and he has decided to make an exposure of some of the Bryan fallacies the chief feature of his speech. Those who an- most familiar with Mr Taff's oral rical abilities regard his purpose of speak ine to the several delegations which will visit him as peculiarly fortunate, for be Is always at h>s best in an extemporaneous speech, and they have such realization of the soundness of his views as to appreciate that he will, in speaking without preparation, b*> in far less danger of pitfalls than would one who had enjoyed less experience with federal affiirs or had devoted ;..c S thought to the problems which confront the nation. KINI'I.Y WORD PROM CERVERA. It has more than once been asserted t y those • o favor the candidacy of Mr. Taft that no man • - mi.l be found who could SO command the respect and the regard Of the leading men in other nations, and the correspondence which is daily reaching the candidate's desk bears ample evidence of the accuracy of the assertion. For Instance, to-day Mr. Taft received a letter from his frier.d. Charles D McGuffey, of Chat tanooga, Term., which contains the following pas sage: You have, of course, been receiving ell sorts of good wishes from your countrymen: per haps you will be Interested in some from be yond the ■ ■'•- >■■■' li •' Orvera. so ('ear to all of. from hi* treatment of Hobson and his men. writes m<- fro,,, Porto Real, us follows: "I --;i\ for the election of Senor Taft for President.

Various letters have been received fflrectly fr>m men prominent in the affairs >f |Tactical!y eve r jrnatlon which Mr. Taft has visited, and it i« a «afe prediction that In his conduct of the foreign affairs of the country he will enjoy the advantage of that element of personal a< q,tialnr ance which m greatly facilitates International negotiations. LJETTKRS SHOW TAFTS STRENGTH. Now that sufficient tiSM has elapsed since thi two conventions mnd" their choices to gau^e the sentiment in the several states and communities, letters of the most encouraging character are reaching Mr. Taft from wn. In whose Judgweni ;.nd ability to sound public sentiment he has the utmost confidence. While, for obvious rea sons, it is not deemed wise to give th« names of the writers, the following extracts from tet ters recentl] received are of interest. The first is from Norfolk. Va. : Sentiment in your favor is exceedingly strong among the Democrats here. The class of our people who have been Democrats and who will vote for you Is the independent voter, who baa little to do «ith politics and Its organizations The favorable editorial in "The Baltimore Sun" of August 13 is being much talke.i of here anJ is having its effect. The universal opinion from it is that Maryland is no longer doubtful The following comes from St. Louis: Matters in Missouri really look encouraging. Wi- have a magnificent state ticket in the field, with Hadley at the head, and this, you know. will appeal to the people Your own popularity. 1 am sure, will help us In Missouri this year, and we want to make a close hard tit'ht. com mencing down at the "glass r ots" of the party. with a determination to win In Nove nber. This is from Milwaukee: I have no doubt that Wisconsin will be for the Republican ticket Things are looking bet ter all the lime and I think that the Repub lican party Is growing stronger ever:, day. From Louisville Mr. Taft received the follow ing: I never *aw ;he prospects for our ticket ap pear half so rosy as they do now. and ! never sm more Democrats make up their minds so quickly that they would be with us this year. The following came from Indianapolis: \fter considerable investigation my opinion is that the colored man in this state will not votr- any different from what be has vot~d be fore. There Is no danger about the success ol the national ticket in the state. You will carry it by t good majority. This is from Atlanta: I sincerely trust that systematic efforts will be made to carry the State of Georgia tor the Republican candidates. There never was a more favorable occasion. The Democrats are sulking in their tents and hundreds of nii-n who have never voted the Republican ticket openly avow their purpose to do so if one-fourth the organisation and canvassing will be maae in Georgia that Is made in < »hio or Indiana, you have a fair chance of breaking the solid South by winning the gmitest Democratic state except T»-.\a.« T«> REACH COLLEGE MEN The Nation il League of Republican Clubs and the National Republican College League will join hands in the interests of Mr. Taft. and they expect that, as a result of their combined efforts. not less than twenty-five thousand voters cast- Ing their first ballot in November will be reached. The plan of co-operation which will b»> followed by these organizations was formulated at a conference to-day between John Hays Hammond, of Massachusetts, representing the National League of Republican Clubs, and Her l>ert M.

[By Telegraph to Th« Tribune.] Utica. N. T.. Aug. 17.— Considerable surprise and chagrin was manifested here to-night among the members of the Sherman Day noti fication committee when it became known that no invitation to attend the ceremony had been sent to Governor Hughes. The Governor is back from his vacation and preparing for a round of the county fairs. He probably would have attended the notification if he had been invi»cd. When Mr. Sherman was nominated the Governor sent him a letter warmly congratulating him. and received a reply In a vein. When rienry W. Roberta, secretary of the executive committee, was asked about the fa'.l ure to send the Governor an invitation he said: "I don't just understand why one was not sei.t. It did not fall to me to send one. It is rossible- that Vice-Chairman Devendorf sent the Govern.).- an ir.vitait.--n vhieh went astray. We would have been happy to entertain tW Governor." MR.

Wads worth. jr.. of the State Assembly, who was in Albany to-day, exjTessed pleasure at the recent action of the Livingston County convention in instructing Its state delegates for him for the Republican nomination for Governor. "The action of the Livingston County Republi can convention," said he. "in submitting my name for the gubernatorial nomination is very gratifying to me personally. The honor of Lin ing my name presented to the Republican State Convention by the delegate- from my horn* county is one which I deeply appreciate. "It must be distinctly understood, however, that my candidacy is not inspired by. nor will I allow it to depend upon, any deal or combina tion of a factional nature within the party. I believe that the Republican party of the state is entirely competent to select its nominees and that the man selected should represent the wishes of a majority of the party. The conven tion should be free, open and deliberative, and under no oth«-r conditions will I consent to :.■-- a candidate. Whatever the outcome, I shall be content and will support the ticket with abso lute loyalty." ATTEMPT TO KILL PRIEST. ' Shots Fired Into Father Marianaro's Bedroom at White Plains.

The police found the bullets I lying on the floor at the foot of the bed. ! For some time things have not been running j smoothly in the Italian Catholic Church, as some ! of the congregation have not taken kindly to j sermons delivered by the priest. In these ser ! mons the priest exhorted his congregation to ' abandon the celebration of the feast of St. i Rocco, and of other Italian saint days, as he I said that the times were too hard and the j money could be used to better advantage in I paying for a new church.

Methods of the Albany Boss— Many Support Governor. > [From a Staff Correspondent of The Tribune.] Albany. Aug. 17.— William Barnes. Jr.. the Re-i publican leader in Albany County. says that Governor. Hughes cannot possibly receive a re nomination at the Saratoga convention. Mr. Barnes has Informed the President and Secre tary Taft that in no circumstances will the dele gates from this county vote for Mr. Hughes if he can prevent it. The Barnes machine men have made out their plan of campaign, and are ready to defeat the friends of Governor Hughes if the latter show fight. When the Tribune correspondent called on Mr. Barnes to-day ha found the Republican boss in a decidedly mili tant frame of mind. He is at open enmity with the Governor, ridicules the idea that there is a probability that the Governor will be renoini nated and tells his friends both here and in New York that Hughes is the weakest candidate the Republicans could nominate When pressed to day for a definite statement with reference tt> what Governor Hughes had done to make him a. weak candidate. Mr. Barnes shook his head sav agely an 1 replied: "That's too long a story. The common people don't like him. and he don't like the common people." After a minute or two of reflection Mr Barnes made the following state ment for publication: ■Mr. Barnes told President Roosevelt at Oyster Bay last Tuesday that the attitude that he, the President, or Mr. Taft might assume toward the question of the renominMion of Gov ernor Hughes would make absolutely no differ ence in the state convention with the determina tion of the Albany County delegates. The pri maries are a week from Tuesday. If the dele pates chosen at the primaries are for Mr. Hughes, the Governor will get their support in the state convention; if they are oposed to Mr. Hughes, they will be for some one else. la other words, the question will be determined by the Republicans of Albany County, and by no one else." LEADERS" PI.AX OF CAMPAIGN. The plan of campaign tentatively decided on by State Chairman "Woodruff. Mr. Barnes. Mr. Parsons and other leaders around the state seems to be as follows: At the primaries the anti-Hughes people will put their tickets in the field with a clean cut declaration that the dele sates to be elected are against the Governor. If the Hughes people can win on this issue, well and good. When the delegates reach Saratoga a half a dozen candidates will be in the field for nomination. Livingston County will present Speaker Wadsworth, Onor.daga County will pre sent Senator Horace White, Kings County will probably back William Bern, editor of "Ills. Standard Union:" probably Delaware County will present the name of ex-Justice M". Linn Bruce. Chautauqua County Is likely to present Justice Woodward, while St. Lawrence may offer the name of Representative George R. Mal'oy. The leaders have already decided that there shall be no conference to agree on a candidate. T vi fight will be thrown into the convention, and on the ro!!. all the favorite sons will receive the support of their friends. The Barnes men con cede the Governor about one hundred _ votes ?t_^_ the 1,007. They expect there will be three or tour ballots before ar.v anti-Hughes man ob tains a commanding lead. The prospect of Mr. Barnes being "called off" by President Roosevelt or Mr. Taft is rather re mote at this time. Mr. Barnes has informed th« President of the feeling of The rank and Ma toward Governor Hughes, and message of th* samet*"nor have been delivered SO the President by Francis Hendricks. the Onondaga leader; State Chairman Woodruff. President Parsons at the New York County Committee and William L. Ward, of Westchester. All the surface indi cations here in Albany are that the anti-Hughe* people are preparing for a bitter fight. GOVERNOR HAS SUPPORTERS. The Barnes programme will not be put through without opposition. There is a large number of independent thinking people, some of who have been run over one- or twice by the Barnes machine, ready to assist the Gov ernor. Whether they will run a primary ticket has not been decided. The same people who organized the Civic League and held a mass meeting on Sunday. April '_'♦>. are in line for the re ruination of the Governor. They include .«:■ Willis G. Mac Donald. James F. McElroy. former president of the Albany Chamber of Com merce; Bishop William Croswell Doane and hia . ldjutor. Dr. R. H. Nelson; David A. Thomp son. Charles Gibson, former president of the Boar.; of Education: Dr. Albert Vander Veer. Dr. Andrew MacFarlane. J. Townsend Lansing. Edward N. MeKinney. Horace G. Young, presi dent of the Albany Trust Company; the Rev. Charles A. Richmond, and a host of churcli people. Charles Gibson, of Walker & Gibson, has abundant reason for fighting the Barnes ma chine. While president of the Board of Educa tion he took a leading part in a mass meeting that commended the Governor and censured Senator Grattan for voting against the racing bills. The following day he was removed as president of the Board of Education and Dan.— forth E. Ainsworth was appointed" in his place. MR. BARNES'S MACHINE. Right here a few words about Mr. Barnes's Albany County machine may be timely. Wil liam Barn-?*, Jr.. is a grandson of ThurloW Weed, who was ■ power in the State of New Tort in the old Whig days and at the time of the organization of the Republican party in laoa He cosies naturally by his love of politics. For about fifteen years he has been in control of the Albany County 'organization. Usually a political leader finds it expedient to say Utt'.O. run his political matters quietly and smoothly and attain his ends with a minimum of friction. "Bill" Barnes, of Albany, is not that kind of leader. He i-« a big and burly man. hardly of middle age as yet. with a raucous voice, which be uses with the greatest freedom. He perhaps has as extensive a line of expletives and epithets as any man in Albany County, and they are shiny from constant use. If an opponent Is moderate and Inoffensive Mr. Barnes will put him '.own as a "lobster." If his Opponent has altruistic or latter day reform propensities ho goes into the Barr.cs category as a "political mut." There is no halfway business about 'Rill- Barnes. If he is against a man. that man knows it right off the bat and would better prepare for action. He is a tireless worker and knows by name nearly every Republican In the city of Albany. He Is an old-fashioned political spoilsman and believes the victors should to rewarded. Twenty years ago Albany County was a Democratic stronghold, returning Demo cratic pluralities with monotonous consecutive ness. Barnes got into the saddle about sixteen years ago. and he has worn the Democratic or ganization out. To-day it Is disorganized and discouraged, expecting to be knocked down whenever it stands up against the Republican machine. Successive victories during the last eisht years have developed arroeani.e In iiiraaa.
