PRICE TWO CENTS. he ! ii DECLARE FOR TUFT Thrre Others Have Also Spoken for IHm, Making Twelve to Roosevelt's Eight. ONE IS FOR LA F.OLLETTE llrpuhlican Executives Rend Word to Washington of Their Hearty Support. " WisnisoTOK, Feb. sr. President Taf t's headquarters made public to-night mes sages received from nine Republican (lovernors indorsing the Taft Admlnis t ration and assuring the President of their loyalty and confidence In hi success. These (lovernors were E. O. Eborhart of Minnesota, M. E. Hay of Washington, ). F. Carroll of Iowa, 8. S. Pennewlll of Delaware, John K. Toner of Pennsylvania, lien W. Hooper of Tennessee, Philip Lea (ioldborough of Maryland, William Spry of Utah and A. J. Potliier of IUiodo Island. In addition to these President Tuft has already been assured of tho support of (lovs. Charles S. Deneen of Illinois. T I. Oddle of Novada and J. A. Mead of Vermont. President Taft is therefore hackeil by twelve Republican Governors. As against these twelve Republican fioremors Col. Roosevelt has been in domed by eight. Those who have de clared for the Colonel are W. K. Glasscock of West Virginia, Chester H. Aldrlch of Nebraska, Robert P. Baas of Now Hamp shire, Chase S. Osbom of Michigan, W. It. Mubbs of Kansas, llorbert 8. Hadley of Missouri, Joseph M. Cary of Wyoming and Robert S. Veesey of South Da kota. The first of these Governors signed the call which brought forth Roosevelt's announcement of his candidacy. The statement issued at tho Taft head quarters to-night says that Gov. Cary of Wyoming has "reserved judgment" fol lowing the recent political pronounce mcnts of Col. Roosovolt. Inasmuch op Gov. Cary signed tho call to Roosevelt this statement aroused a good deal of interest. It was said that the call went to Roosevelt before ho had delivered his Columbus speech and that Cary haa not announced his indorsement or Roosevelt since that speech, although all of tho other Governors concerned have done so. A good deal of doubt has been expressed off and on as to where Gov. Eberhardt of Minnesota would finally land and the an nouncement from Taft headquarters al lays all doubt in regard to him. Gov. F, 12. McGovern of Wisconsin is committed to th" Presidential candidacy of. Benator IJ,ollftl):'I'woUhtirfor all of the Itepunlican llovernors. Foiur-rjf'the' telegram's slgtveaTiy" the Governors who have declared for Taft are west of the Mississippi River, where Roosevelt 2s supposed to be strong. Tho Taft people contend furthermore that in the States whose electoral votes ore neces. i-ary for Republican success at the polls next November but which now have Democratic Governors tho men who ran for Governors nt tho last election are sup porting Taft. Here aro some of the things that the Ilepublican Governors say in their mea- Mgos to the President: President Tnft's Administration, meas tired by all standard uf accomplishment and fidelity to duty, entitles him to the in dorsement of a second term, which I believe inherent sense of fairness and Justice of tliD American iwoplo will imsrnilclnclv lilve him Aoor.ru A.

He can't tell us how extensive or complete they nro, but he has some, I think it is only fair that the witness be directed to turn to thoso and return here at a date to be fixed by the referee to proceed with his examination. Evidently he has made no effort to qualify himself as a witness here. He dou't want to know, it would appear." When Referee Daly asked the Mayor if he had any records which would refresh his memory the Mayor answered: "I don't know about any records. I said I kept those letters. Those are the only records I have. I don't know what obligation I am under to go and spend my time looking up these things for any body, and I don't know how I can be compelled to."
