Secretary Taft's visit to his home city, so far as it con cerned the selection of a republican rational chairman, was fruitless of its mission. Frank H.

On that date a meeting of the candidates and mem bers of the sub-committee will be held in Washington to finally determine the matter which could not be solved today. An announcement of the ac tion of the conference was made in a statement issued by the direction of Taft this afternoon. The events leading up to the issu ance of the statement are interesting ami to a degree significant. The mem bers of the sub-comniittee of the na tional committee were requested to as semble at the ref;dence of Charles P. aft at 11 o'clock this morning. Then 1! was expected tne Conterence WOUIcl i not consume more than an hour and J a half. That, at least, was the idea of the committeemen when they' left the bote. As a matter of fact, the real c onference did not begin until half past twelve. The de lay was caused by some interviews whirh Taft had with the men,,. rs of the Ohio Ftate commit tee and some members of other states who had come to Cincinnati to see him. These interv iews. !t is understood, had a more or less direct bearing on the selection of a national chairman. The war secretary was put in' pos session of information concerning the matter which he thought he ought to have before reaching a conclusion on so weighty a question.

'."The sec- retary was urged not to be hasty in an nouncing a choice of a campaign man- ! ager . . . . . i Finally when Taft, Sherman and the members of the sub-committee came j together they were in a position to ! consider the subject in the light of in formation from all sources. The con- fereh.ce was entirely executive. Des- i l,i,e however, an agreement was reach- -ed that it should not be discussed by the parties to it, it is known that con siderable differences of opinion arose as to the choice of national chairman. TaTt, it can be said, felt that in all the circumstances, it would be the part of wisdom to postpone definite action on both the chairmanship and treas urersliip fur a time. Later in the aft ernoon he said to a representative of the Associated Press: "It wns dectned wise to defer action for the present, both as to the chairman and the tras urer of the committee. It was not a question that had absolutely to be decided to day. One decision was fi lially reached; momentous issues may depend and we felt that It might be well for the smoke of the battle at Chicago to clear away before deter mining the matters before tis. We have plenty of time and the sub-eom- I mil tee, which has full power to act. may be gotten together almost any time. The time July 1 place Wash ington was quite satisfactory to all parties to the conference. When we convene there,1 we shall be able to reach a conclusion satisfactory to all." Hitchcock. Taft added, wis in a state bordering on nervous collapse ami needed a good rest. Taft's dis cussion of the subject with members of the committee was substantially an elaborate discussion. With this view the committee was fully agreed. It will be noted that the official state ment does not say that Hitchcock de clined the chairmanship but declined the place, or that a proffer had been 'made him. It can be said that the ; proceedings today have not eliminated Hitchcock from consideration and he undoubtedly wil be an important fac tor in the equation which is to be re- duced by the conferees when they meet at Washington. The secretary will remain the guest of Mr .and Mrs. Charles P. Talt until tomorrow afternoon when he will leave for New Haven, Conn., to attend the meeting of the Yale Corporation, of which lie is a member and to be pres ent on Tuesday at the reunion of his class of '78. Sherman left tonight for Cleveland. He was accompanied by former Gover nor Herrick and a few other friends. A report is current here late to night that Senator Lodge arid Ches ter .

(Special.) I am pleased to be able to advise you that the action of the repub lican convention in Chicago in nominating Secretary Taft and Congressman Sherman has had the effect of clearing the financial atmosphere materially, and we have a right to look for an improvement in busi ness from this time on. Even democrats generally admit the success of the republican ticket this fall. Everyone believes implicitly in Secretary Taft's exceptional qualifications for the office of president and all who know him do not hesitate to say that every interest will receive at his hands considerate and fair treatment. ! am sure Arizona will find in him an appreciative friend. Arizona was ably represented in the convention. The statehood plank is positive and to the point. As Senator Foraker has wisely stated, republicans should turn their attention to a common enemy from this time on and forget irritating differences. The best . interests of our country are at stake. We have a right to expect that demagogues will be plentiful after the Denver convention and unless republicans and conservative democrats take a prompt, positive and active stand, the improvement of busi ness, may be materially retarded until after the election.

Xew York, June 20. His fifteenth successive victory was added to his record today by Colin, James R. Keene's unbeaten two year old when he won the Tidal stakes at Sheeps head Bay in easy fashion. The Tidal stakes for three year olds is worth $14, 550 to the winner. Today's victory, with that of Ballot in the Suburban on Friday, makes Keene's returns from the two razees close to $35,000. His string of winnings had practical ly put Colin out of the betting, the odds quoted being 1 to 5. Four horses were sent away to a fine start. Colin qtilckly went to the front and from that moment led the field easily with great apparent reserve and won by a couple of lengths. Dorants was four lengths before Stamina who in turn was eight engths before Chapultepec. Time, 2:04. o STEVE ADAMS CASE TOMORROW. Grand Junction, Colo., June 20.

It is the first time the daughter of an American ambassador, has been mar ried in London, and Miss Reid Is the first American girl to form an alliance with a member of King Edward's household.

Fires in northern Michigan forests fanned to gigantic proportions by gales of the last two days, have destroyed at least three villages and rendered hundreds of persons homeless. They swept over thousands of acres of timber land and caused damage estimated at about $200,000. The heaviest loss has been sustained in Bresque Isle and Sheboygan counties, although Leela lanu, Charlevoix and Otsego ajso suf fered. In many towns" today the lamps are lighted as the sun Is obscured by the heavy smoke. The village of Case, in Presque Isle county, was destroyed today.

PLUMBING 15 East Washington St : Strictly first class AMSON DISSECTION OF PLATFORM Conducted by the Eminent Dr. Bryan The Faults lie Finds In the Recent Proceedings at Chicago. Lincoln, Juno 20. Under the news caption, "In Full Retreat," Wm. J. Bryan, in the next issue of the Com moner, will discuss the national re publican convention as follows: "Republicans who attended the na tional convention and the spectators who joined in the demonstration in faor ;f Roosevelt and LaFollette must have felt indignant as they watched the panic-stricken delegates running over each other in their ef forts to get away from the LaFollette reform, many of which have been en dorsed by the president himself. "Congressman Cooper, of Wisconsin, representing LaFollette on the plat form brought in a minority report signed by himself alone. Fifty-two members of the committee signed a majority report, one signed a minority report. "The republican party will find a ratio of 52 to 1 a very embarrassing one to deal with in the coining cam paign. Cooper's report contained a declaration in favor of a publicity of campaign funds which was lost by a vote of 8S0 to 94, more than 9 to 1. .Yet the president had been advocating legislation in favor of publicity as to campaign contributions. Taft wrote a letter to Burrows advocating the pas sage of such a bill. "How fortunate it was that Taft's letter was finally discovered and pub lished. Burrows, the man to whom the Taft letter was addressed, was the temporary chairman of the convention, and the cenventiou over which he pre sided turned down the publicity plank by a vote of 9 to 1; who can deny that on this subject, the republican party is retreating. "Another plank cf the LaFollette flat form authorized the ascertaining of the value of railroads. This plank was lost by a vote of 917 to 63, nearly 15 to 1. Yet President Roosevelt ad vocated that very proposition. Here is'a retreat on the railroad question. "In another column, reference is made to the injunction plank: The injunction .plank adopted by republi can convention is a retreat from the position taken by the president and from the position taken by Taft in his speeches, although neither of them went as far as they ought to have gone in an effort to prevent what is known as 'government by injunction.' Here was a third retreat. The presi dent advocated an income tax, and in heritance tax, but the republican con vention Was silent on these subjects." o BRYAN SURE OF IT. Lincoln, June 20.
