LEXINGTON, Kj? Aug! 23. ? When
William H. Taft, letretary of war, and
candidate for the Republican nomlhalion
for President, arose to, speak rln
the Woodland park auditorium here
yesterday afternoon,/ cheers such as
Kentucklans 'ohircan give greeted
him. He was Introduced by Judge
E.1 C. Orear of thh Kentucky court of
appeals, who declared him to be the
corping man and a true representar
tlve of the Republican party.

the first thing to catch the attention

Ste sizing him up and. then again cheered
loudly. He complimented Lexington
and tffentucky, Hie first sentences
brought smiles to the faces of his audience,
but-.these were soon lost He
delved Into the negro equality question,
and no speaker has been bold
enough heretofore to talk so straight
from the shoulder on the subject.
Many Negroes Iji Audience.
There were many negroes In the audience
and there was uneasiness upon
the countnancs of many, who sat
breathlessly listening td the famous
traveler and politician. However, he
relieved all doubts directly by asking
Kentucklans to brush away this specIre
and break the solid south by entering
the Republican column. After he
sat down byndreds of people, men and
women, crowded the stage and shook
hands with him.
Congressman Edward Denby, of
Michigan, shaking bands with Judge
Taft, remarked on the tall appearance
of the Kentucklans. Judge Taft said:
"Yes, they seem to grow up down here
while us northerners grow out." .
A little boy seated at the breakfast
table at Elmendorg by the side of
Judge Taft declared that if Judge
Taft was allowed the second helping
to waffles be supposed there would
be nothing wrong In him asking for
Secretary Taft In hiB speech, dIScupssed
the race problem and political
Issues from the southern standpoint,
and made an appeal to Kentucklans
to aid the Republican party In s'uifport
of the principles of his party. Calling
attention to what he termed the south's
lack of representation In the counsels
of the nation, he declared that this
was tru 'because one single issue has
made it the perpetual tail or the Denfocratic
party, so that however small
the northern head, it wags the tall.
The south has permitted the shadow
of an Issue tat circumstances ought
long ago to have removed to bind it
to the Democratic party no matter
principles or candidates that party

?- * ?
His home Is In Pennsylvania,- and, so
far as can be ascertained, be is without
any near relatives la tils vicinity.
Yesterday morning Charles Synder,
Lee Carter and M. J. Kennedy, three
Bell linemen, were sent to the Island
to. remove an old .wire which had become
grounded, that, extended from
North Broadway end Zane avenue to
York street Snyder .went upt he pole
to work at the end of the line on Zane
street and the other two men started
for York street "but were called back
by the accident to Snyder.- They
found,him lying on. the pavement, still
breathing, and tbey.. worked his arms
and did all In their; power to revive
him, but he died" In a few minutes.
This Btory they substantially told to!
Coroner Rogers, wiio was Soon on the I
scene, adding they'did not know wnat
had caused him to fall.
Continuing the Inquiry the coroner
brought out more Information to the
effect that David McBlree and C. W. j
Grlffln, working upon a broken wdter
pipe In a ditch about 20 feet from the
pole on which Synder had been work'
leg, heard a sizzling noise and looked
up Just in time ''to see him failing
through the tree' that stood next the
pole. His arms and legs were outstretched
and he appeared to make no
effort to save himself and struck the
ground on his back, wlth.hls head ou
the curb, and at no time uttered, a
sound. They did not see blm-goup
the pole, Harry Yaus, a boy, and several
women also saw the- man' fall,
but no one saw hfin grasp the live
wire. This latter was examined by V.,'

volts and the Insulation was wbni off
for a distance of-about, ap-inch, ^ang n
half. Snyder , evidently touched this
and it caused his lmmeiifa,td','death. *'
Coroner Rogers took this.'view anil
rendered the following Verdict:
"Charles IV. Synder met 'gea% by
being accidentally electrocuted by- a
wire of the Consumers Electrical Company."
Had the wire not bees fatal, It- is
possible that Snyder would have died
from Injuries he received in the fall.
His t?ad was. badly cut'^nd bruised
.where it came , in. contact' with the.
curbstone, while there was a gash
about an inch long over the-, right
eye, while, his nose was- - split' wide,
open Its' entire length, and when the
man struck the ground,, the Impact
