Colorado Is For Taft The following interview with Mr. Clyde C. Dawson, is taken from the Post of Washington. D. C. "In Colorado the Republicans are exceedingly hopeful that at the next I session of the Legislature they will have a majority on ioint ballot and elect two Republican United State* Senators,” said Clyde C. Dawson, a leading lawyer of Denver, who was given the complimentary vote of the Republicans in their last senatorial contest, and who is in Washington on business. "Governor Shafroth' extra session of the Legislature, and the general failure of the Democratic party to enact needed legislation has dis gruntled many Democrats, and whereas the party has a greater number of holdover senators than the Republicans It will require only a change of twenty votes on joint bal lot to give the state to the Republi cans.
