PRESIDENT TAFT'S NEGLIGEE
Mexican Editor Contrast It With
Splendor of President Diaz.
The editor of El Kaskabel of Guadal
ajara, out of the leading papers of
Mexico, attended the Diaz-Taft meet
lng at El Paso and published an edl-
torial which is causing much comment
In official circles of that country. He
"Remembering the excursion of the
white squadron through all the seas,
an excursion that cost millions of dol
lars and was solely an extravagance
of ostentation to acquaint the world
with the wealth of the Yankee, I had
hoped that the executive, Taft, would
bring to the frontier a regiment of
soldiers splendidly dressed, a good
battery of artillery and a resplendent
staff. But no, senor, there was indeed
a sad contrast.
"While our president went adorned
in his grnnd uniform of a general,
made in Paris at a cost of 25,000
francs, President Taft wore a BUit that
did not seem to be his own, due to its
looseness, his collar was wilted by
perspiration, and there was not the
slightest impression of elegance. He
went in a coach (It might have been
one of public hire) while our president
rode in a splendid landau, and the sol
diers, the Mexicans, were in gala
dress with well polished shoes and
well bruehed clothes. Those of our
neighbors were In leggings, yellow
shoes, khaki clothes and what Is the
worst of all, in undershirts.
"How shall this American neglige
be interpreted? Was it to make evi
dent the freedom of the Yankee? Was
it to contrast the simplicity of the
opulent with the splendor of the1 poor?
Or might it not have been to signify
the little importance that they con
ceded to the ceremonies?"

President Has Nine Days More

In Hit Speech at the Fair Grounds the

on Being Able to Restrain Tendency
of Young Men to Go Into Big Cities.
Ex-Governor Vardaman Called to
8ee the President Wine Drinker
Won at Taft Banquet.
Jackson, Mirs., Nov. 2. With Ncv
Orleans behind him Presljen: Taft is
on the last leg of his long Journey.
He has nine days more in the South
ern states, but he already has seen
nough of the South to eimbl-j him to
say that his two months study of con
ditions throughout the country is
practically finished. The Impressions
that he has gathered from the (rip
were sumirarl:ed by him in a speech
here. He said:
"I have gone from the Atlantic to
the Pacific ocean, down the Pacific
coast to the southwest corner of the
country, through the territories end
that great domain of Texas to St.
l-iouls, down the Mississippi to New Or
leans, and I have made (the Lord for
give me and the Lord help those who
have heard me) 200 odd speeches I'l.d
I have survived the heaving of 200
more and I am able to say that we
never in all our country's history were
as homogeneous a people, as closely
allied In all our hopes ind ambitions,
and In all our pride of country and
patriotism as ve are today.
"It is possible that there are corners
in this country that havj escaped mo
wheie there is discontent, hut if so I
have not found them. In every town,
I have almost said every hamlet, in
every city and county, in every state
I have found the individual sayl'ig to
himself: -I am contended here because
I know Unit I will make this city or
this town or this county the best !n
the state and I am going to do that
"And In respect to the ambitions of
the people It has been the same, every
one proud to be Americans and to re
joice and thank God that (he starry
flag waves over us, united country.1
Words of the Lamented Lamar.
The president Bpent l'J hours In this
city. Jackson did her best to make
the president's stay pleasant. Every
body seemed to have in mind the
words of Mississippi's famous Lamar,
"If we knew each other better we
would love each other more."
In carrying out this Taft celebration
Jackson had a good many things to
contend against. Thens was a state
fair, a circus, a balloon ascension and
a parachute drop. The circus and the
balloon ascension alone would have
discouraged tho ordinary city, but
Jackson managed to keep the circus
parade and the Tatf show separate.
The circus outfit with its long line of
animal cages, Indians and bareback
riders watted in a side street until the
Taft procession had passed and disap
peared. Then the circus bands struck
up and followed .on down the street.
The president helped to swell the gate
receipts of the Jackson fair Just as he
has those of many other shows on his
In his speech at the fair grounds the
president congratulated Mississippi on
its having been able to restrain the
tendency of the young men to go into
great cities and said: "The truth is, If
I were advising a young man In this
country as to his profession, I should
say to him that there probably Is
greater opportunity for real reward in
assiduity, induttry, attention to busi
nes? and scientific investigation In the
profession of agriculture than any
other profession that this country af
fords." Conflict cf Wets and Dry.
The president's program included
besides the visit to the state fair, a
luncheon at the governor's home, an
automobile sight seeing trip and a din
ner last evening. The dinner had
caused considerable fuss between the
wets and the drys In the city. The
drys were opposed to having wine
served and they carried the matter
Into the pulpits of some of the church
es. The wets, however, refused to
give in and then the tenipeimce peo
ple threatened to get out an Injunction
restraining the wet3 from using wine
at a banquet.
The wine drinkers carried the day
by going to New Orleans an.l buying
their supply in Louisiana. Now the
teetotalers say they will carry the
question of the Taft banquet to the
polls. Mississippi Is a dry state. The
president him3clf does not drink wlno
or anything else stronger than coffee,
so that the' Jackson people were rais
ing a rumpus on their own account.
A good many Ja"ksonltes were sur
piired when ex-Governor '.'ai daman
called to see the president, lie has
spoken bitterly ngalnst Taft and Is
seeking an election to tho senate on a
platform that is opposed to Taft and
his Southern policy.
The negroes in Jarkson declined to
deliver ffu address of welcome to the
president. They said that they would
prefer to hear his regular speech at
the fair grounds, but it Is said that the
real reason was that Mr. Taft is un
popular with them because of his fail
ure to appoint negroes to office in Mis
sissippi. Fails to Soothe Pet Rattlesnake.
