Nicholas was in the south when an article accusing him of un fairness in the Duckwater Creek matter was published, and the state ment was made that certain resi dents of Nye county had asked an investigation of the affair. He could not be located, ana taerefore a state ment could not be secured, but his Reno friends declare that tney are sure that it is simply a misunder standing. They say further that the matter was given publicity for the purpose of killing off his chances for the Democratic nomination for gov ernor of Nevada, rie has been en dorsed by several papers for this office. Today iur. Nicholas said that the Dacbwater story as printed was false.

C., Jan. 27.— President Taft today set his beak against the wall, bade defiance to foe, to too solicitous friends and the country at large and announced an ultin>8tium that began with the statement that a seond term is on indifferent matter to hfcm and that bs IS not looking for ft. but thdt while he is president he is going to "do something." Thgt something, the president made elefar to regular and insurgent Republicans, to to car ry out the pledge of the Republican party, and his test of Republicanism will be a vote for tboae measures that he regards as pledged by tge party in the party platform and the last campaign: The limitation of the use of the Injunction power by the federal courts. The enactment of amendments to the railway rate law and those to the laws which regulate interstate com merce. The establishment of a system of postal savings banks. Separate statehood for Arizona and New Mexico. The president mentioned two Im portant bits of legislation as debat able and consequently no test of Re publicanism. He submitted thsit these two .matters were questions on which there could be reasonable differences of opinion. These he mentioned as: Conservation of the natural re sources. A federal incorporation act. Representative Hayes of Cali fornia; Murdock of Kansas, and Gardner, of Massachusetts, were given this information today, but what they did not get was the other part of the president’s ultimatum, when boiling under the Bplit in the party, opposition to some of his measures and wagontoads of gratui tous advice from well meaning friends all over the country, the president shoved his hands deep in his trousers pockets, lost the famous smile and stated the case concisely. The president believes that many men who are making trouble within his own party are honest in their be liefs, but that they do not realize the responsibility on him as leader, of the party and as president to “do things.” They expect him to enact laws without party, whereas, under the American systm. laws can be enacted only by party. They expect the president thinks, that he can do things by "his good right hand." ENGLISH SITUATION MIXED. Outcome of Elections Is l*ut in Doubt by Lftte Results. LONDON, .Ian. 27.—Gains made by the unionists in yesterday's elec tions were much smaller than ex pected, and should the same ratio prevail in the contests today and to morrow, when with the exception of half a dozen scattered constituencies the elections will be concluded, there is a possibility that the Liberals alone may have a slightly larger membership In the new House of Commons than the I'nionists alone. The numbers, however, are so close that legislation will be effect able only with the consent of the Irish Nationalists and Laborites, and it is impossible to predict with any confidence the future course of events.
