Newark, N« J., May 27.—This was another day of hard riding and fast walking for Taft and Roosevelt. To morrow New Jersey will instruct her twenty-eight delegates to the national conventions and the last full day of the primary campaign will be utilized by both candidates to its last hour. Many other signs besides t^ie meteor like trips of the candidates make it apparent today that the state was at the crisis of a big political battle. The billboards which stretch for miles along the railroad lines out of New York flamed with political posters. News papers full of political advertisements and campaign literature have been distributed by the ton. Roosevelt started from Oyster Bay early today for what may be his last day of campaigning before the nation al convention, unless he decides to go to South Dakota. It was said the col onel might visit the latter state if Taft spoke there, but the president's Intentions are unknown. Roosevelt's itinerary included a large number of towns in the center of the Btate, and tonight expects to wind up at Princeton and speak from a bal cony of Princeton inn. The selection of this rostrum, it was said was due to the refusal of President Hibben of Princeton to let any of the univer city buildings be used for a political meeting unless nothing derogatory was said, about Taft, who was the In stitution's guest recently at Hibben's inauguration. Taft will continue his campaign un til the polls close at 1 o'clock tomor row. Today he started from Newark where he spent Sunday and last night, for a tour tof the towns along the At lantic coast. The day's work will end at Atlantic City, Where he will spend the night. Wilson may make his last speech before the primaries tonight at his home in Princeton.

Hardy of the Fargo Commercial club on his re turn from Washington today to a Fo rum representative. "But I promised not to divulge anything of the inter view I had at the White House so can not give out anything for publication about that, interesting as I know it to be." When President Hardy went to Washington two weeks ago he said his mission was to put a stop to the fight between Taft and Teddy and now that he's home again h« says he has accomplished his purpose.
