It is significant that after a confer-

and the members of the sub-committee
of the national committee decided
to postpone action on the chairman-
ship and treasurership of the national
committee until July 1. On that date
a meeting of the candidates and mem

in Washington to finally determine
the matter which could not be solved

tion of the conference was made in a
statement issued by the direction of
Taft this afternoon.
The events leading up to the issu

some interviews whirh Taft had with
the men,,. rs of the Ohio Ftate commit

who had come to Cincinnati to see him.
These interv iews. !t is understood, had
a more or less direct bearing on the

inary conferences the whole Ohio sit
I uation was discussed carefully and its
bearings upon the approaching nation
jal contests was considered. '."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

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

The Nomination of Secretary Taft Impregnates
the Financial Atmosphere with Ozone
New York, June 20. (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. F. M. MURPHY.

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
"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."
