The Watertown meeting, though it came at
5 45 o'clock In the morning, filled the little the
atre with an appreciative, applauding audience,
which did the Governor's heart good. The peo
ple cheered his analysis of the Bryan proposi
tion* Fhowing that any attempt to put them
ir,to e^ect would bring disaster. They cheered
him louder when he declared. "I won't yield to
ar.y one in the desire to have evils remedied and
abuses corrected. I have no other object in
public life than to devote myself to that end."
At Sioux Falls, his welcome was even more
cordial. Whistles of factories tooted shrilly for
fifteen minutes: a band headed the parade which
met him. and the streets were lined with people,
■nho waved their hats and cheered him. The
opera house was jammed. May.. r DooUttle, a

This Democratic city produced a throng of
three thousand persons. Including Governor
Sheldon, to greet the New York Executive. The
Hughes train did not reach here until 8:30. «o
it was late before the Governor spoke, but the
people waited eagerly for him. and Governor
Sheldon was speaking on Nebraska Issues
■when Governor Hughes entered the auditorium.
As warm as had been the Nebraskan's greet
ing. Governor Hughes's welcome- was even more
cordial. The audience surged to Its feet and
cheered vehemently. Governor Hughes took th«
occasion to thank his friends in the West for
the support they had lent his efforts to bring
about the anti-gambling reform and others.
"Moral Influence* know no state lines," he said.
Governor Hughes said. In part:
Perhaps you have wondered why I have left
my own state temporarily to come out here to
speak in behalf of the Republican candidate for
President. It is because I think that the welfare
of the country demands the defeat of Mr. Bryan.
To say that Mr. Bryan's policies are a danger
is not an extravagant statement.
They have been a danger before, and the
country has repudiated them. Without there
being any exigency that requires a change from
the Republican to Democratic administration, he
comes out now, as previously, and says the
country requires him. I ask you to examine his
proposals and see whether you think them other
than unworkable fancies and dreams, a return
to the vice of the 16 to 1 ratio under a new
We are not a people given to revolutionary
changes! The average American believes in
American institutions. He wants, not experi
ments with visionary schemes, but a stable, solid
form of government. New, when I speak of
ratios you will remember Mr. Bryan has a great
love for percentages. He has abandoned his*
16 to 1 ratio and has now got a new one. You
have already learned that in interstate com
merce, as a means of exterminating trusts, he
proposes to limit to 50 per cent the production
by any one corporation of any one commodity;
thai, if you owned a patent or made an inven
tion, you could not manufacture more than 50
per cent of the demand that patented article,
that if you were just starting in business to
put a new product on the market for the first
time you would have to wait until somebody
else produced 50 per cent in order not to violate
the law.
What form of bureaucratic government would
we have to have to regulate such a complicated
scheme? I have more than once asked Mr.
Bryan some questions about his schemes, but
apparently he has been too busy to answer them.
We want for President not a champion of rad
icalism and discontent, but one who realizes that
the prosperity of one class is bound up in the
prosperity of the other, and that one branch of
commerce is interdependent on the other. Mr.
Taft, I believe, understands and has practised
these virtues.
On the train Peth Bullock and Governor
Hughep had a talk. "I am glad to see New
York Is building skyscrapers higher than ever."
said Bullock, "for now New Yorkers may learn
by going to the top of them that the sun sets
farther West than Jersey."
"If that's a twit at me," said (governor Hughes,

Exchange Gamblers and Traction
Men Trying to Beat Him.
Large, sums of money, it la reported from credi
table sources in Wall Steet, are being collected
by the Chanler campaign managers from Stock
Exchange members, whose preference for the Dem
ocratic candidate for the Governorship Is due
primarily to their sympathy and affiliation with
the traction and other public service corporation
Interests, and who are bitter opponents of the Pub
lic Service Commissions law. who in their endeavors
to accomplish the defeat of Governor Hughes aim
also at the repeal of the law and at the least hope
to prevent the telephone and telegraph companies
from being placed under its provisions— a measure
of regulation originally recommended by Governor
David B. Hill, a Democrat of Democrats.
The gambling element among the exchange mem
bership, constituting an important percentage, is
also solidly arrayed against the Governor because
of hostility to his announced purpose to institute
an investigation into the methods employed in
•speculation in securities. Governor Hughes. In his
Brooklyn speech ten days ago, made it clear that
that inquiry would. if sanctioned by the Legis
lature, be free from sensationalism and conducted
by experts on the subject; but the gamblers of the
Stock Exchange are vehemently opposed to any
sort of Investigation, and in their opposition lay
much stress upon the fact that the exchange man
agement has In the past pursued a policy of
sercrecy In Its probing of exchange abuses. Senti
ment among members of the exchange has greatly
changed on this point of late, however, and many
of the reputable members were desirous of pub
licity for the recommendations of the special com
mittee in the A O. Brown & Co. case. which were
expected to suggest means for coping with auch
evils as "wash sales" and "matched orders." while
for the Investing public, their interest in Stock
Exchange methods has been greatly quickened by
the disclosures following the failures of the last
few months.

Says Democrats Are Ashamed of
Their Candidate.
Frederick W. Whitrldge, who did effective work
lor the Republican ticket four years ago by his
letters on Roosevelt, haa written a letter on "The
Presidential Election," In support of Taft- Follow
ing are extracts from the letter:
•-Four years ago there was perhaps room for de
bate as between Roosevelt and Parker. Judge
. Parker raj not generally known, but he had he'd
! an important position and was a respectable man.
This year there is no opportunity whatever for
debate. The question we have to decide appears
to me to have only one side to It. I shall not
undertake to discuss the so-called issues of the
campaign. The platforms of both tie parties have
? ei \. completely forgotten, and nobody has looked
at them since the date of their publication. The
question before us is purely personal. Bryan or
Taft— which is it to be?
Mr. Bryan has been almost continuously before
I the public for twelve years. He has made him
self known to more places and persons than any
other man in the country except the President.
« c have had an opportunity to Judge him. and,
so far as I can learn, he has steadily lost ground.
The more people have seen of him. the less
highly they think of him. His friends say that
we must, et least, admit that he Is a man of great
ability, because he has been able to hold control
of his party, but that control of his party or
ganization seemt to me to prove -he depredation
of the party rather than Mr. Bryan's ability.
I have known a score of men during the last
year who have been to hear Mr. Bryan speak, in
the hope of being converted by hln »o that they
could vote for him. Every one has come back and
said: "No; the man is impossible." I believe it
i» the fact that there Is not a single Democratic
member of the Senate of the United States, and
not over a dozen of the Democratic members of
the House of Representatives, who either wished
him to be nominated or would be pleased at his
election. I do not believe that. If elected. Mr.
Bryan would be as actively dangerous as people
imagine, but he is simple enough to be taken in
and befooled by more than one notorious scallywag.
To my mind, although he is a respectable man.
it is "plain that he is. personally. Intellectually,
socially and morally, unfitted to re President of
the United States. He has neither education,
training nor experience in affairs. I cannot find
that he has any settled principles or that he be
lieves In anything, although It can be shown from
his utterances that, within the time he has been
on the boards, he has professed a belief In every
thing which anybody has advocated during that
period. To m*» the Idea of Mr. Bryan and his
entourage In the White House Is a grotesque and
colossal Joke.
Mr. Taft. on the- other hand, Is a man of educa
tion, of sound training, and unusually wide experi
ence, and is in all quarters confessedly fitted there
by and by his temperament to occupy and fill the
high position to which I believe he is called. There
has not, in our time, been another candidate whose
life and history have so apparently fitted him to be
the President of the United States as Mr. Taft.
At the moment the public conception of Mr. Taft
Is Wurred by the President's activities. He is ob
jected to as Mr. Roosevelt's heir, and because he
Is supposed to be committed to his policies.
An Immense amount of twaddle has been talked
concerning the "President's policies." One might
suppose that he had invented something new or at
least pretended that he had. but neither supposi
tion is true. So far as I am aware, the Presi
dent ha« had no policy except to enforce the law.
And I venture to say that what he has done in that
way is now generally recognized as wise, states
manlike and beneficial to the country. It Is not
what the President has done which -an now be ob
jected to. It Is what he has paid, and what people
feared he was jrolnK to say next, or might possibly
do, that has alarmed them, and made them Imagine
his "policies" to be a melange of his speeches, let
ters and acts.
It may be that he has raised tBS devil in the
minds of the poor and ignorant: It If also true that
he ha* raised In the minds of many of the rich
and more or less knowledgeable an ethical sense
which appears to have be>en dormant since they
left '.heir mothers. His renunciation of the Presi
dency — for it amounted to that — was perfect in
form. and. as an historical fact, stands beside that
of Oeorge Washington. I believe he never wavered
in his resolution on that subject, except for a mo
ment, when there appeared to be danger that the
unspeakable Hearst might succeed in buying a real
party and becoming a real candidate. Mr. Roose
velt's patriotism is as pure and exalted as any
man's. and though many of his Ideals are too gladi
atorial for my taste, his faults are those of his
time and of his country, and of the sort to which
his countrymen are wondrous kind. Hence, in part,
comes his <»xtrr. ordinary popularity and the affec
tionate admiration he commands.
Mr Taft has been an Important member of his
administration, and it is childish to talk about his
disassociating himself from that administration. As
an honorable and honest man, how rould he? And
even If he wished to. it Is obvious that the people
would and must discuss Mr. Taft in connection with
the. administration, to the success of which he has
so much contributed. "Speak for yourself. John."
I have heard it said of him. But he Is speaking for
himself, and like a sound, mature, straightforward
man. His appearance on the platform has been
dignified, calm and courageous. His years of hon
est work in the- public service are beginning to be
remembered. The popular conception of him is be
coming clearer, everywhere he is seen and heard he
is thought better of than before — not worse — and It
has always 'n»«n so. He has won trie respect and
approval of all sorts and conditions of men, from
the humblest Filipino and half-caste Cuban to the
ruler* of men abroad and the leaders of opinion at
If elected. I assume that Mr Taft will carry out
the President's policy of enforcing the law, but I
imagine he will do It with a very different de
partment of Justice from that which has lately
been in evidence: and If it Is necessary to de
nounce malefactors before trial or conviction I
have no doubt that Mr. Taft will recognize the
equality of us all before the law, and treat the
richest, most decrepit and most unlovely pluto
crat with the same consideration md silence as
he will treat the roughest rider who ever chewed
a comrade's ear in Jail at the end of a spree. It is
wholly to the President's credit that he so earnest
ly purports Mr. Taft. for there are differences be
tween them, of which, if some tales are true, he
it quite cognizant.
I have heard It said that Mr Taft was not
picturesque or excitinz I do not know: but what
do we want— viiror? Here is a mar who with his
own fist knocked an editor into the gutter who
had Insulted his father. Courage? Here is a
Judge who. in a time of Rreat public excitement
and disorder, put an Impudent derrnpn^ue in fall
where he belonged. Character? Knowledge? Ex
perience He has them all. and his friends love
him and respect him for them. For twenty years
he hns been performing arduous public duties like
the whole-souled, modest, stainless man I relieve
he is The path of duty is often arid, but it hi*
bfen now and again the wav to glory, and as the
poet sansr of the (rrenT duke, whop* life, like Mr.
Taft'9 was characterized by the full unflinching
performance of the duty before him— here is a

Treafurer Will Not Resign— Says
President Is Confident.
1 From The Tribune Bureau ]
Washington. Oct. fi— George R Sheldon, treasurer
of the Republican National Committee, took
luncheon with President Rr-osevelt to-day and re
mained half an hour afterward to discuss the politi
cal situation with him. At the close of the con
ference. Mr. Sheldon made to The Tribune cor
respondent the following statement:
'The President asked me to come over and lunch
or dine with him two or three weeks ago, but the
duties of my position have made It Impossible for
me to come until now. We w»nt completely ov-r
the general situation. On his authority, as well
as from my own knowledge, I can say most poni
tively that the relations between him and Mr.
Hitchcock are of the closest and most friendly
character; that Mr. Hitchcock has his entire con
fidence, and that the President heartily approves of
th« manner in which Mr. Hitchcock Is managing
the campaign, and, I may add. the President Is
entirely confident of the result."
Mr. Sheldon arrived In Washington this morn
ing, having left New York at midnight last nifht.
On the way over he travelled with Postmaster Gen
eral Meyer, who was returning to Washington.
Farly this morning Mr. Bheldon spent raif an hour
with Secretary Loeb. He then went to the State
Department, where he conferred with Secretary
Root. Mr. Sheldon returned to New York thla
afternoon on the Congressional Limited.
In addition to his formal statement. Mr. Sheldon
let it be known quietly that he had no intention
of resigning from the treasurership. and it was
officially stated by high authorities In the Admin
istration that no such action on Mr Sheldon's
part was desired or expected. Mr Sheldon and
hie friends take the position that whatever wealth
he may have acquired In the way of stocks In cor
porations was made honestly, and that there Is
no reason why a man with an honest record should
get out of a public position at the command of the
opposition party. It Is now certain that the Demo
crats have received their answer as to Mr Sheldon
and that he will stKk right where he Is.
As to getting campaigr funds. Mr. Sheldon let it
be known that he would raise enough money to
conduct the campaign. He told close friends that
the election laws in New York and public senti
ment made it impossible for big campaign funds
ever to be collected again Men who desire to con
tribute liberally are refusing to do so because they
do not care to ha\-e their names bandied around
in the newspapers.
Mr Sheldon also let it be known that he under
stood his duty as a citlxtn In the observance of
the laws of his state. He will not. therefore, pub
lish any of the contributions received by him until
twenty days after the election, as called for by the
laws of the State of New York. There Is nothin*
in a rumor that the Republicans will anticipate the
Bryan programme of printing contributions about
October 15. Mr Sheldon regards contributions as
private. Just the same as those given for private
reasons to any other cause.
There was every evidence from Mr. Sheldon's
manner that the President firmly assured him that
there was no desire for his resignation. It was
also brought out quite clearly that the story of
Secretary Root finding fault with Mr Sheldon was
as absurd as many others that have been printed.
The. long conference of Mr Sheldon with Secretary
Root settled any further insinuations In that direc
Asks Hearst to Publish All His
Letters to Archbold.
Former Congressman Joseph C Slbley. of Penn
sylvania, who has beer, mentioned freely in W. R.
Hearst'? recent speeches regarding the Standard
Oil Company, gave out the following statement
last night:
For thirty years last past I have been more or
less closely associated in business with John D.
Archbold. of the Standard OH Company,- and dur
ing the major portion of this period I have talked
with him and written to him with the freedom and
frankness due to a business associate and a per
sonal friend. My connection with the Standard OH
Company was known before I entered public life,
and the three Presidents of our nation, during my
term of service were familiar with the fact of my
business connection with the Standard Oil Com
pany, as wer • my friends In the Senate and ray col
leagues in the House of Representatives. Approxi
mately five hundred thousand people who in two
different Cnreress districts of Pennsylvania se
lected me a« their representative in Congress knew
precisely the relations existing between the Stand
ard Oil Company and myself.
Mr Hearst has copies. I believe, of every letter
written by me to Mr Arrhbold from 1900 to very
nearly the- close of my term of public service. I
therefore request that he will do me the Justice to
publish them, one and all. In their entirety and In
their orderly and natural sequence, giving dates
of letters, and not separating text from context. .
Asks 176 West Chester Clergymen to
Support Governor Hughes.
William L Ward, Republican national com
mltteeman and leader of Westchester County,
put it up to the ministers of Westchester
County yesterday to support Governor Hughes
on moral grounds. He wrote a personal letter
to 176 clergymen as follows:
a? you are aware, Governor Hughes In his
candidacy for re-election is encountering vig
orous opposition. The position taken by Gover
nor Hughes on high moral and constitutional
questions offendfd a large number of those who
voted for him two years ago.
While I am reluctant to suggest anything
which may be construed to connect politics with
religious interest. I take the liber of saying
to you that in order to insure the re-election of
Governor Hughes the votes of those who have
t, rtn estranged by his official acts must be offset
If good government is to be continued In New
York State. It will be necessary for him, there
ore to receive the assistance and support of
every person, without regard to his political af
filiations, who approves of the stand taken by
him as Governor.
I hope you will see the importance of the oc
casion, and will extend what assistance you can
to the cause of Governor Hughes and good gov
ernment in the state.

Says So Himself— Waxes Bitter
Against His Opponents.
Cedar Rapids. lowa, Oct. 6.— "1 present myself
as an example of one who has outlived the venom
ous attacks of hi* opponents. I You heard me called
a , demagogue twelve years ago. Tou saw them
bury me, and you heard them chant their songs
over my grave, and now they have to explain why
It happened that I was not dead."
William .J. Bryan. ' facing an audience in the
Chautauqua Auditorium. between Tama and
Toledo. lowa, to-day, delivered himself of this
utterance. At no time during the present cam
paign has he spoken . with such fervor. His re
mark followed a bitter denunciation of Mr. Taft
for refusing to agree to a publication of campaign
contributions before election.
At Woodward he heaped ridicule on the Repub
licans by chsrsing them with taking credit for
the growth of crops, the shining of the sun and
the bringing of rain. "In fact." he raid, "they
seize upon anything that they think gives a plaus
ible excuse for voting the Republican ticket."
At Maxwell he compared the granting of special
privileges to a cas«» of poison in the human sys
tem. "There has b^n a poison at work in our
politics." he declared,- "and to-day its manifesta
tions are such that I believe the American people
are ready to apply the remedy, and that poison is
the poison of privilege, the poison of favoritism.
Our government has been run too largely in the
Interest of the favored few "
Drawing large crowds all day in the course of
his travels through the state. Bryan hurled defi
ance at his opponents. Fifteen speeches- and hand
shaking with thousands constituted his days work,
the concluding speech being made here to-night.
Before going to the hall he was serenaded at the
hotel, and addressed an immense throng from the
balcony. The note of. his remarks here to-night
was that Republican policies meant disaster while
Democratic policies meant prosperity.
Mr. Bryan departed at 11 o'clock this evening for
Chicago, where he is due to arrive at 7 o'clock in
the morning. He will spend two days In the city.
He will be the guest to-morrow of the Chicago As
sociation, of. Commerce, and In the evening will
speak at the banquet of the Deep Waterways Con
vention, at which Mr. Taft will also sj*ak.
