DILLON QUITS RACE COMMITTEE TO ACT OHIO G. O. P. NOMINEE FOR GOV. ERNOR RESIGNS AND SUC CESSOR WILL BE CHOSEN. JUDGE MAKES STATEMENT Says the Reason He Takes His Stand Is That All Endeavor to Bring About a United Party In Buck eye State Has Failed. Columbus, O. Facing a situation unparalled In tho history of Ohio politics, tho culmination of which may mean either tho destruc tion or salvation of tho Republican party In this state, tho Republican stnto central committee will convene hero July 31. ' Committee to Pick Candidate. Tho selection of a candidate for governor to succeed Judgo Edmund B. Dillon of Columbus, who, despair ing of party peace, has telegraphed from Mackinac Island IiIb withdrawal from tho ticket, is business ot para mount importance which tho, commit too must undertake. Under tho law and tho party rules tho commltteo Is charged wth tho responsibility of fill ing vacancies on tho ticket. Although for several days the pos-, sibllity of his withdrawal in tho event of his inability to secure tho support of both tho Roosevelt and Taft factions of tho party had been rumored about tho state capitol, tho suddenness of tho announcement was something of a shock. It had been the understanding that a definite and final declaration of his attitude would not be made before tho central committee's meeting and possibly not until after the new pro gressive party's convention at Chicago next week. Thero is still a chance for uniting tho party, however. Judge Dillon's Message. Following is Judgo Dillon's mes sage: "My written declination, placed In the bands of Chairman J3urton, was not read to the convention and I ac cepted the nomination in the' full pre sumption and belief that my accept ance would mean an united party and a single ticket in Ohio. "All endeavor in that behalf, has failed, despite the kindly offices of my friends in each faction of the party. The measure of justice due me, even though a mere individual, requires my resignation as nominee for governor and the same will be presented to the state central com mltteo at its meeting next Wednes day." Judge Dillon's message arrived aft er it had becomo known here that Theodore Roosevelt had delivered to his Ohio supporters positive orders to arrange for putting a now party ticket in the field for the state cam paign in the fall. This information camo from New York and is under stood to have been given by the colonel to one of his Cleveland friends who visited him recently.

Recommend Federal Incorporation of All Concerns Whose Capitalization or Value Exceeds $50,000,000. Washington, D. C. Tho fedoral Incorporation of all concorns engaged in interstate commerco whoBG capi talization or valtio exceeds $50,000,000 is the kcynoto recommendation ot tho minority members of tho Btanloy steel Investigating committee. Tho report ot tho Republican membors-'of' the in vestigating committee has just, been mado public. Tho full report Is signed only by Representatives Gardner and Danforth. Tho remaining Republican members, Sterling' and Young of Mich igan, file individual dissents on tho exact character of remedial legisla tion needed. Messrs. Sterling and Young agree with their 'Republican colleaguos that federal Incorporation is a remedy for present industrial evils, but they decline to go so far as to recommend the federal regulation of prices, which Gardner and Dan forth advocate in tho event the situa tion cannot otherwise be met. Tho four Republican members agree on the following salient findings ot fact as disclosed by tho long Investigation of tho United States Steel Corpora tion: That J. P. Morgan & Co. received $62,500,000 for organizing tho corpora tion, and that of tho capitalization ot $1,400,000,000 nearly one-half was water. 1 That tho average annual earnings of tho steel corporation have been from 11 to 12 per cent of Its assets and that tho corporation controls more than one-half ot the crude and finished steel business of tho country. That the average wholesale price of steel products has been lowered sinco tho corporation was formed, but that tho corporation and all independents have an understanding as to price. Tho system of Interlocking direct orates has insidious consequences and tends to "inside management" and the stifling of competition. That the situation as to the iron ore supply is grave and may become men acing, and that labor conditions in certain departments of the steel in dustry are bad. DENIES STEALING NOMINATION Statement From White House Says Seating of Delegates at Chicago Was Done in Fairness. Washington, D. C. Tho long ex pected and carefully prepared answer of tho Taft faction to the reiterated charges that the president "stole tho nomination at Chicago" has just been Issued from the White House. It is the longest and probably tho most complete political statement ever put out from the executive mansion and Is intended by its very thoroughness and care to damn the arguments of the third party men and spike the guns of the Democrats who may seek to make campaign matter out of the former president's charges. Every one of the 238 contests which Colonel Roosevelt's leaders Instituted In Chicago aro carefully discussed, dissected and disposed of. All tho ar guments which wero presented to tho national commltteo prior to the open ing of the convention or to the com mittee on credentials after Juno 18 aro included in the Taft statement a bulky document of some 150 pages and 40,000 words and, in addition, thero Is a summary which epitomizes the contests and shows wherein each lacked the necessary flavoring of truth which caused tho convention to reject it. "An examination of tho facts," con cludes the statement, "shows that the tribunals were right in every in stance. There is not the slightest evidence that they wero moved by other than a mere desire to reach a right conclusion. On the other hand, tho action of the Roosevelt men in bringing 160 contests that they promptly abandoned strongly tended to show tho lack of good faith in the prosecution of them all. Those who support Presidont Taft can well af ford to stand on tho record in these cases and to asservato without fear of successful contradiction that the delegates whoso seats wero contest ed were as fairly seated in this con vention as in history of tho party."
