Augmenting the Crowds Which Cheer Ohio's Favorite Son and the Republican Candidate for the Presidency. Cincinnati, July S8. Standing on a flag-draped platform in front of the colonial portico of his brother's home. Judge Wm. H. Taft at noon today ac cepted the nomination of the Repub lican party to be its candidate for the presidency. Political - leader from -far and near gathered to give the af fair Its political significance, while friends, neighbor and admirers of f.-f S6fn . Tt?r "um-i'itg h.s tow tit.peup.ij turned out in countless number with out regard to party affiliations. Senator William Warner, of Mis souri, past commander-in-chief of the i. A. R., headed the notification com mittee, which consisted of members from every state, territory and island possession of the nation. There were also present many members of the national committee, Including Chair man Hitchcock. Warner's speech was brief. When he concluded there was enthusiastic cheering as Taft stepped forward and began the delivery of his speech. Without omitting any of the impor tant declarations of his speech as printed, Taft eliminated many ex planatory and detailed statements so as to bring the delivery within an hour. . . . . 1 , . . i: 1 I I J I me CUIll'lUKK'II HI IIIM BUUlWi I there was a parade of marching clubs, militia and various organizations which the candidate and committee reviewed. Notification day broke with the roar of cannon from the seven hills of the city, the sun shining brightly down upon the elaborate decorations, the most extensive in the history ' of the city. The American flag was used almost exclusively In the deco rations. At y.30 an American flag, the gift of the people of Cincinnati to the Taft family, was raised to the top of a fifty-f'ot mast in the Taft yard. Tills Hag will be raised whenever William H. Taft is In the city, being lowered during his absence. The yard and x (streets were thronged during the flag raising ceremonies and the assem blage sang "America." , The notification breakfast, devoid of all ceremony, was served to the members of the notification commit tee and such members of the national committee as came to attend the cer emonies. Long before noon the streets about the Taft residence were thronged and the candidate was greeted with cheers when he tuok his position on the porch. The notification was made by Senator Warner, who spoke briefly snl concluded with: "it, therefore, gives me genuine pleasure, Mr. Taft. to present to you this formal nomination from the He publ.can party, whose governmental policies have for so long 'kept In balance the mighty force of the na tion.' and to whose continued guid ance of the nation we have every rea sonable right to believe that the peo ple are now looking." Taft began the delivery of his speech at 11:14, concluding t 1:21. holding the close attention of his au- dience throughout the hour in spite of the intense heat. The cheering at Platform Adopted at the conclusion of his speech continued for some time. His speech In full Is as follows: Senator Warner and Gentlemen of the Committee: I am deeply sensible of the honor which the Republican national con vention has conferred on me In the nomination which you formally ten der. I accept it with full apprecia tion of the responsibility it imposes. ItejMiMlcan Strewrth in Maintenance .of itooHevult PwiicteH. s Gentlemen, the strength of the Re publican cause in the, campaign at hand is in the fact that we represent policies essential to the reform of known abuses to the continuance of liberty and true prosperity and that we are determined, as our platform unequivocally declares, to maintain them and carry them on. For more than ten years this country passed through an epoch of material devel opment far beyond any that ever oc curred in the world before. In its course, certain evils crept In. Some prominent and influential members of the community, spurred. by financial success and In their hurry for greater wealth, became unmindful of the common rules of business honesty and fidelity and of the limitations Imposed by law upon their action. This be came know n. The revelations ot the breaches of trust, the disclosures as to rebates and discrimination by rail-J ways, me accumulating evidence of the violation of the anti-trust law by a number of corporations, the over Issue of stocks and bonds on interstate railways for the unlawful enriching of directors and for the purpose of concentrating control of railways In one management, all quickened the conscience of the people and brought on a moral awakening among them that boded well for the future of the country. W I uit Roosevelt Has IHni The man who formulated the ex pression of the populur conscience and who led the movement for prac tical reform was Theodore Roosevelt. He laid down the doctrine tiiat the rich violator of the law should be as amenable to restraint and punish ment as the offender without wealth and without influence, and he pro ceeded by recommending legislation anu directing executive action to make that principle good in actual performance. He secured the passage of the so-called rale bill designed more effectively to restrain excessive ana fix reasonable rates, and to pun ish secret rebates and discrimination which had been general In the prac tice of the railroads, and which had done much to enable unlawful trusts to drive out of business their compet. Itors. It secured much closer super vision of railway transactions and brought within the operation of the same statute express companies, sleeping car companies, fast freight and refrigerator lines, terminal rail roads and pipe lines, and forbade In future the combination of ;he trans portation and shipping business under one control In order to avoid unJue discrimination. President Roosevelt directed su.ts to be brought and prosecutions to be instituted under the anti-trust law. to enforce It provisions against the most powerful of the industrial cor poration. He pressed to passage the pura food law and the meat inapec tion law In the Interest of the health of the public, clean business meth ods and great ultimate benefit to the trades themselves. He recommended the passage of a law, which the Re publican convention has since spe cifically approved, restricting the fu ture issue of stock and bonds by In terstate railways to such a may be I ,(. - II Thos. Ij. IHsron, Probable Xomlnee of Independent party for tlie Presidency authorized by federal authorities. He demonstrated to the people by what he said, by what he recommended to Congress and by what he did, the sin cerity of his efforts to command re spect for the law, to secure equality of all before the law, and to save the country from the dangers of a pluto cratic government, toward which we were fast tending. In this work Mr. Roosevelt has had the support and sympathy of the Republican party, and its chief hope of success in the present controversy must rest on the confidence which the people of the country have in the sincerity of tne party's doclaration in its - platform, that it intends to continue the poli cies, ' Neoeeeau-y to Dvve Koine Mctuis of Permanently Securing Progi-ena Made. Mr. Roosevelt has set high the standard of business morality and obedience to law. The railroad rate bill was more useful possibly in the Immediate moral effect of its passage than even in the legal effect of its very useful provisions. From Its en actment dates the voluntary abandon ment of the practice of rebates and discriminations by the railroads and the return by their managers to obe dience to law in the fixing of tarlfTs. The pure food and meat Inspection laws and the prosecutions directed by the president under the anti-trust law have had a similar moral efTeet In the general business community and have nvaue it now the common practice for the great industrial corporations to consult the law with a view In keep jig within its provisions. It has also had the effect of protecting and en couraging small and competitive com panies so that they hav been enabled to do a profitable business. But we should be blind to the ordi nary working of human nature, if we did not recognize that the moral standards set by President Roosevelt will not continue to be ob served by those whom cupidity and a desire for financial power may tempt, unless the requisite machinery Is in troduced into the law which shall In its practical operations maintain these standards and secure the country against a departure from them, tlifc-f function of Next Administration to flinch What Has Keen Hone. The chief function of the adminis tration, In my Judgment, is distinct from and a progressive development of that w hich has been performed by President K'usevelt. TIIK CHIEF FI'NCTION OF THE NKXT ADMINISTRATION IS TO COM PLETK AND PEltFKCT THE MACHINERY HY WHICH THESE STANDARDS MAY HE MAINTAIN ED. HY WHICH Til E I.AWHREAK EHS MAY HE PROMPTLY RE STRAINED AND PUNISHED, BUT WHICH SHALX, OPERATE WITH SUFFICIENT ACCURACY AND DIS PATCH TO INTERFERE WITH LE GITIMATE BUSINESS AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE. SUCH MACHINERY IS NOW ADEQUATE. Under the present rate bill and under all Its amendments the burden of the inter state commerce commission In super vising and regulating the operation ot railroads of this country has grown so heavy that It Is utterly impossible for that tribunal to dispose, In any reasonable time, of the many com plaints, queries and issues thst are brought before It for decision. It ought to be relieved of its Jurisdic tion as an executive, directing body, rnd it function should be limited to the quasi-Judicial investigation of complaints by individual and by a1 department of the government j of supervising the operation of rail- J ways.

The field covered by the industrial combinations and by the railroads Is so very extensive that the interests of the public and the interests of the business concern cannot be properly suoserved except by reorganization of bureaus in the department of com merce and labor, or agriculture, and the department of juatloe and a change In the Jurisdiction of the inter, state commerce commission. It does not assist matters to prescribe new duties for the interstate, commerce commission which it is practically im possible for It to perform or to de nounce new offenses with drastic punishment, unless subordinate and auxiliary legislation shall be passed making possible the quick enforce ment in the great variety of cases which are constantly arising, of the principles laid down by Mr. Roose velt, and with respect to which only typical Instances of prosecution with 'he present machinery are possible. Such legislation should and would greatly promote legitimate business by enabling those anxious to obey the federal statutes to know Just what are the bounds of their lawful action. The practical constructive and diffi cult work, therefore, of those who follow Mr. Roosevelt is to devise the ways nd means ly which the high level of business Integrity and obedi ence to law which he has established may be maintained and departure from It restrained without undue in terference with legitimate business.

With Injunction Plank Added Chicago, July 28. The Independ ence party which launched itself fully into American politics last night by opening its first national convention, was busily engaged early today in the construction of its Initial plat form and selection of its first presi dential candidate. The enthusiasm shown by the delegates last night was taken by the leaders as a happy omen. Despite the fact that Hearst has repeatedly declared he will not be a candidate for the presidency, there is a strong sentiment for him, and he would have less trouble in secur ing the nomination than had either Taft or Bryan. It was announced this morning by the committee on resolutions that it would be prepared to present its re port when. the convention met at i o'clock this afternoon. Clarence J. Bhearn, chairman of a sub-committee which is preparing a tentative draft of the platform, said the platform as a whole would follow closely the principles laid down at the February meeting of the Inde pendence party. The only new planks which it is expected will be Incor porated are those relating to anti-injunction.- Asiatic immigration and for a stronger navy. , The committee on, rules has decided that In making nominations the two third rule shall prevail. With Hearst repeating his state ment that he will not accept the nomination for the presidency if it is offered him, Thomas L. Hlsgen ap pears to be the most probable can didate for the office, and his selec tion is regarded entirely probable. Milton D. Howard, however, has a strong following and is spoken of with favor a a probable candidate. It Is said that Hisgen and Howard may be nominated for president and vice president, respectively, to settle the matter. II'S ANDREWS ON 1H FlfiST BALLOT V. H. Andrews returned to Albu querque ladl evening from a trip through several important counties of the territory.

I am glad to sue sev eral other candidates in the field,' he continued. "It shows that the Re publican party in New Mexico 1 Just &s wide awako and ready for action as It ever wus. We are going to re turn a Republican delegate to Con gress as we have done in the past, and, in my opinion, the majority will be substantial. People generally throughout New Mexico appreciate the Importance at this time of elect ing a Republican, which means state hood at the short session of Congress.

While business had not yet reached th volume of )ast year, Gould said his roads were now doing nearly a normal business. Receiverships for some of his roads, he stated, were of friendly nature, designed to keep the properties intact and protect them from hostile Interests. Crop condi tions, particularly affecting the wel fare of the Gould roads, were excel lent, he said. -. v Gould expressed unqualified satis faction at the Standard Oil decision.
