His Letter.
August 16, 1910.
"My Dear Sir:
"It Is not possible as yet for BM
to answer definitely; hut I believe
?hat on my trip tn California, next
March, I shall pass tiiroiifijj th.> South
ern states -and I hape that it can
be arranged that the Southern Com?

athich I am able to pass. If so. ft
?II be a very real pleasure to me to
De present and to ssv all that I can
in behalf of Uiis admirable move?
"Mure and more, the former mis?
understanding about the South is
tend'tig to disappear; and you and
your associates have set in motion
a force that will have to do with
the complete dissipation of this mis?
understanding. Von are working for
a stronger South; and you show
your wisdom and foresightedness in
the **sv you realize that this move?
ment for a ?tronger South, to be ef?
fective, must really mean a stronger
national cohesion, for the old South
of yesterday is being changed into
the young America of today.
Hopes for Solid South.
"Every good American must hone
to see a real solid South, in the
sense of solid business prosperity in
the South; for all good Americans
now realize f?hat the prosperity of anv
part of the country helps the pros?
perity of the whole and the pro?
ierity of the whole will grow faster
and stand on the most durabi?- foun
tl&tions only when we effectively
realize thaf.thr? words 'smith.' 'north.'
; Vast' and 'west* have only a g? oirr?p
? ?atari significance. I earnestly hope
i that the young men of the South will
? never forget the past glories of the
South, because I earnesily hope that
the young men all over America to
i day will keep ever in mind these
! glorious memories of every section
of our common country; and that
j the men of the North and of the
! Weal wttl remember the South'*
! past with the same price that the
I South itself does; for the undvlnc
| glory won by the men who so val?an :
I ly. and with such sincerity, fought
i fot thrir convictions, whether the-?
I v.ere the blue or the crav, is now a
I common periiage of all of us, wher?

"This nation Is thrilling with ideals
j at this very moment; and these

its full share in realizne it; and from
I now on it must partielnate in full
j in the solution of all the national
problems of this age with the eourage
j that our fathers showed in ?hose

i at mournful pride.

President Taft Has Nothing
to Say on Outcome in
New York.
(Ily Assoelateti Press)
liKV'I-'Kl.Y. MASS., Aug. If. - Rev?
el ly ?as completel?/ upset tonight
j ?hen news tame tram New York of
I the defeat of Colonel Theodore Rot??.?
velt for temporary chairman of the
New York Republican suite conven?
tion. The fact that I.loyd C Grls
roin. chairman of the New Y'ork coun?
ty convention, had boea in confer?
ence with Mr. Taft Sunday, added to
the sensation that the despatch
Secretary Norton carried the news
to the President. Mr. Taft made no
comment for publication. There is
nothing here to indicate that he
knew of Mr. Griscotn's plan to force
s vote on Mr. Roosevelt's name.
So Jar as can be learned. Mr. Grit
eoni's talk with the President had to
do solely with the general situation
in New York state and Mr. Taft tool;
the ground that harmony ought to
be brought about if possible before
the Saratoga convention meets. The
secretary said Mr. Griscom took h
message to Col.mi 1 Roosevelt which
would ?ffet: the future relations be
iween Mr. Roosevelt and the Presi?
dent is distTiafJu i| in Heverly. Mr.
Taft has assumed the attitude thtt
any overtures, if they be necessary,i
mus; come "from she other side.' j
What effect today's developmentr]
it New Y'ork may have upon the re-j
organization plan fl??t has been in
pr?u*r. aa hare taaal of course, for ?a|
time remain a matter of ctinje. rnre.
So far as OBB Be learned there is a|
? disiiosition in i. to "Stand pat"
| ?he plans a- antr\-iced. Senator W.l
l Muray Cane, of Massachusetts, thej
.?entrai Harun? in the re-organization j
i plans, was hare late this arfernooni
and spent two hours with the Presi?
dent. The Senator was retir iont as I
ever. He would not talk ?bout bis'
visit to the President.
