of Republicans
By Associated Press
Washington June 1There will
be no hikewarm endorsement cf
President Roosevelt and his policies
in the republican national platform
if the wishes of Secretary Taft and
his friends have a hand in framing
that document This nuih was
known today after the first series ot
conferences to be held with Taft on
the subject of platform
Should the Chicago convention
adopt this sort of platform and nomi
nate Secretary Taft it is predicted
in authoriatative quarters that his
letter or speech of acceptance wiil
contain a pledge to carry out the
Roosevelt policies already inaugurat
ed and earnestly strive for those not
enaoted which will have a ring simi
lar to that pronounced by Roosevelt
on taking the oath of office over the
body of the dead McKinley
Taft made no secret of his position
on tariff He is for revision at a
special session of the sixtyfirst con
gress to be called immediately after
the inauguration March 4 1309 His
ideas as to what the tariff should be
are also public property Schedules
should be drawn as near as possible
to cover the difference between the
lesser cost of production of a given
article in foreign countries and the
cost of production of that article in
the United States This he regards

While the event was primarily in
the natur of a jollification nn1 the
signal for a general welcoming of the
class which Is stiH fresh from its
victories of the past week Uier was
a vein of regret throughout entire
evening which was caused by the
Craws which every ono knew ami oC
which Ifew cared to speak that of the
coming departure of Principal JI B
Ioekey who perhaps has done more
for the advancenvent of the high
school than auy one person who has
ever been connected with the institu
tion Prof Lockey will go to rninm
bia University to prepare himself for
a college professorship and it is for
the reason that he has tldantified him
self so tihoroughly with the work in
hand and has given his energy in its
entirety to the advancement of the
schools that his departure is so gen
erally ettl Ibis presence at last
nights tent was in the form a
