TAFT WILL USE TACT. No Dictation From Candidate a to National Committeemen. Washington, June 3. There Is no candid oserver who will not admit that there was a good deal of bungl ing In the management of Secretary Taft's campaign for the republican presidential nomination, especially In ,lf""er 8,a8es Mistakes were made which proved costly and which made much more difficult the fight for the secretary's nomination. But, despite mistakes, the fight appears to have been won; and now It Is becoming manifest that along with the bunglers there are some brilliant politicians In the Taft camp. One evidence of this Is the an nouncement that Secretary Taft, should he he the nominee, will not at tempt to dictate the men or methods of campaign management. It Is de clared he will leave this matter with the nntlonnl committee with which, under party law, the responsibility Is lodged. While It resolves upon the commit tee to select Its chairman and the ac tive campaign managers, custom has allowed the nominee for president to dictate who the chairman shall be. Thus, In 1896 and again In 1900, Mc Klnley selected Mark Hannn for na tional chairman, though Hannn was not even a member of the national committee. But It is said Taft will Indicate no preference for the national chairman ship, and undoubtedly this Is good pol ities. It will give all members of the committee an equal voice In making the selection, no matter whether they have been for or against Taft's nomi nation, and it cannot be doubted this will have a tendency to placate and harmonise the opposition. There Is the further consideration! no campaign publicity bill having passed congress, that there are going to be unpleasant charges of "fat-frying" during the course of the cam paign. If the candidate does 'not se lect the campaign management, he will personally escape a good deal of the embarrassment of these charges. place, after only slightly figuring as a possible contestor. Third place was taken by Langwan at 100 to 8. , Slgnorlnetta crossed the line fully two lengths ahead of Primer. 'Bel mont and Vanderblit backed the en tries of Norman Third and Seasick the Second, to a hundred thousand. The king's horse, Perrler, placed on the same basis as Langwan in the betting, was backed heavily, being a favorite of the people. The winner is owned by ' Chevalier Glnistrelll, an Italian. She was the only filly entered. FIGHT ON TAFT IS RENEWED WITH VIGOR, Memorial Day Speech May Encom MiH III Defeat Root? volt May Take Nomination. Chicago, June 3.
