EL PORTAL, Cal., Oct. 6. The
president is safely stowed away to
night in this remote little settle
ment at the foot of the Sierras and
near the gateway of the Yosemite
valley. Clad in khaki riding trous
ers, soft shirt, khaki coat, boots and
cap, the president tomorrow morn
ing will start out of El Portal on a
three days' sight seeing trip. By
stage and on foot, Taft will visit
the giant Sequoias in the Mariposa
big tree grove. The party will leave
here early in the morning by coach
and will be driven to Wdwona, at
the edge of the grove, where the
real monarchs of the forest grow.
Taft will be driven through a tun
nel cut through one of the old trees
which is said to have been standing
from three to five thousand year?.
Friday afternoon the president
wil enter the park from one of th.?
Ijiighest points and after a trip to all
the show places on the upper levels,
will begin the descent to the floor
of the valley. It will be the pres
ident's first trip into the Yosemite.
Yesterday while the president wr.-?
at San Francisco he heard that it
was the plan of the park officials to
have a troop of cavalry act as his
escort for a day among the big
trees, but this has been dispensed
with at his request as he wants the
trip through the park to- be devoid
of any spectacular features.
John Muir, the noted naturalist,
joined the presidential party at San
Francisco this morning and will per
sonally explain the wonders of the
park and valley to Mr. Taft.
The president will be aceompanlel
into the big tree grove and into the
park by the members of his own
party, and the California delegation,
consisting of Governor Gillett, Sen
ator Flint and Representatives Mc

At Merced the president was pre
sented with another golf stick made
of eucalyptus wood and gold mount
ed. This presentation called forth
a golf speech, in which the presi
dent R-'ggested that the unirrigated
land of Hie west be turned into open
golf links for the public. The game
of golf, he said, was an old Scdtcn
game and was played in Scotland bv
everybody, from boys to old men,
and from the poorest to the wealth
iest. Continuing, Taft said: "We do
not need games in this country for
boys from fifteen to twenty-five, or
thirty years of age, because we al
ready have them. I suppose 1
looking at some baseball 'fans' equal
to myself in that regard. I don't
know how it is with you, but I've
got beyond my baseball playing
davs. The game of golf, on the
other hand, remains with you from
the time you are fifty to seventy."
The president then told of a gen
tleman nearly eighty who had bear
en him at the game. Golf, the pres
ident said, leads you to walk with
out realizing you are walking. Anl
when you play a game of eighteen
holes and walk upwards of four or
five miles, there's only a pleasant
feeling of fatigue and none of that
violent exercise you have in base
ball or tennis.

which a section hand was trying to
get off the track. The car was lit

below El Portal and it was neces
