PREDICTS ELECTION
Nothing Like the Ovation to the Big Candidate Ever
Before Witnessed in Wilmington, the Crowd Be

Saves a Little Boy
MR. TAFT'S SPEECH:
Ladies and Gentlemen of Delaware; (Amid
tlie confusion) If yon will keep still. 1 11 try and
make a little noise. If you keep still you will be
more comfortable than I am in trying to make a
noise.
I congratulate the people on being alive to tbe
importance of the November election, and I see
before me the augury of Republican victory in
November.
It indicates that the people of Delaware believe
in order, that we shall enjoy prosperity. In order
that the unemployed shall become employed,
they should continue the Republican administra
tion. and thus make the wheels go round, the
smoke to pour out of the chimneys and the fac
tories to resume.
I ask you who have money to invest, whether
you would care to invest ' it under Republican
prosperity', or invest it under a leader who has
advocated so many panaceas, quack remedies in
the past twelve years, none of which has proved
a success.
I believe from what I have seen in New Jersey
to-dav. from what I have seen in Delaware to
dav. from what I saw in the South and W est in
the past three weeks, that 1 am going to he
elected, and it will give me the greatest pride if
•ith these electoral votes I am going to have
three from Delaware.

MR. TAFT'S MESSAGE THROUGH
THE JOURNAL
Because of the inability of many persons to
hear him, Judge T.aft was' asked if he cared to
deliver a message to the people of Delaware
through THE EV EN'ING JOL RNAL.
gladly accepted the opportunity and said :
"This is a fine meeting. There must be twenty
thousand people here. Rarely Jo 1 have a larger
meeting than this.
"My regret is that conditions are such that I
cannot reach every person present with my voice
in a discussion of the great Republican issues,
and that I cannot grasp the hand of every person
here. But it is impossible to have my voice
reach them to-dav. and time is not at my com
mand to grasp the hands of this great assemblage
of Delawareans_

being alive to the importance of the November
election, and I appreciate their kindly expres

"It augurs a Republican victory in November.
I am convinced that any general poll, impartially
made, will forecast clearly the success of the Re
publican ticket in November and furnish some
surprises as to the attitude of Slates classed here
tofore as Democratic or doubtful.''

Th *' r * has bc * n much comment mad.,
an,J a degree of surprise created because
of the action of Rev. HubAt W. Wells.
|rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church,
who on Sunday read from Ids pulpit an
«nonymous letter commenting on the re
IWous beliefs of the political candidates
for President In this campaign. This lel
,, ' r > purporting to come from an Indian
missionary and in part stales that Mr.
Taft was a Unitarian and Intimating that
he is an agnostic.
Mr. Well» seid to-day that he had read
tlvo letter and commented upon It for the
reason that he believe! that it was either
u-.e work of extrem. > p.etlsts In the church '
or #f ,, w pollt , C ian. who sought to make
capital out of tho religious views of the
candidates.

The clergj man said he believed that It
was an effort to strike at the candidacy
