against something of a snag in the

on former occasions. Is not procurable
this year, and thre Is no other hull
In Me city large enough to accommo
date the crowd which Is certain to at

securing that building for the event,
and will make an effort to got It
shortly afr-v t.ie Yale Junior prom

The armory will be engaged the nlgnt
after the promenade, hut Hie follow

are striving to get permission to use
It on that date e,nd believe they will
secure the permission sought. It Will
make un Ideal place, much larger and
better fitted for the purpose than the
theater would he at the best, and lite
committee will feel that It has n
cnmpllshed a grenl deal If It can g-l
this hall for the affair.
On account r,f the fact that the hull
will draw so large a crowd that there
Is no other place In the city which will
be large enough for the eveni Is ,i
certainty that. If t,ic armory is tint
granted the ball will have to be given

LYMAN ABBOTT
PRAISES MR. TAFT
Editor of the Outlook Tells Yale
Students That Famous Grad
uate Has Laid Down His
Life for His Country..
FOLLOWED DUTY ALWAYS
Longed for n Siirptiip Court Bench,
But Refused It for Less Pleasing
Work Peril In Fool hull Nec
essary for (ioori Men.
Rev. 'Pr. Myinan Abbott of New York,
editor of The Outlook, addressed the
Yale students In Pattell chapel yester
day morning and In the evening ad
dressed the general university nieeiing
in Pwlght bnll.
The talk In t evening was very In
formal and In Its course Pr. Abbott
paid a great tribute to William How
ard Taft. Be said: "The man who has
recently heen elected president of the
1'nlted States Is an excellent example
"f a man who Is laying down his life
for his country, Just as Washington
and Lincoln did. In the case of Abra
ham Lincoln there was no need of his
death to show that ho bad laid down
his life. His martyrlsni was an inci
dent. He was laying down his life In
the four years of the civil war and the
period preceding It. Washington laid
down his life Just Hie same way In the
revolution and the years following, and
the fact that he died a peaceful dea'h
makes his life none the less self sacri
ficing. ' "About Mr. Taft I know of personally
and d not need to rely on newspaper
accounts. iMr. Taft's ow n wish has al
ways been to be a judge. President
Mi'Klnley wanted someone to cross the
Fens to the Philippines and liy the
foundation for a civilized government
among the Mule brown people. Tart
did not wish to go, but when AlcKlnley
told him that lie whs the best man
available for the position he responded
to the call of duly and went to the
Philippines. While there he was of
fered n position on the supreme court
bench, the position which he had been
working for and desiring for years.
His duty to the little brown people led
him to decline nnd be remained In the
Philippine until he was recalled to be
come secretary of war. While In that
oflice be ha always had at heart the
interests of the people over whoni
President McK.inly sent him to rule
and a the result of his work he will
sometime see them a free people In the
broadest sense of the word,
"While Taft was secretary of war, a
place on the supreme court bench was
again offered him, and this time lie was
longer In refusing The place was helo
open for him and was very alluring, at
tracting him more than an administra
tive oflice. Hut t'be call of duty again
led him to refuse and from now on he
will continue to lay down his life for
his country as he has ever since be en-
I tered public life.
I "Another good example of a man who
Is laying down hi life for others Is
found Pr. Cront'ell. He was a lead-
log physician In Isuiilon and could have
i surrounded himself with every luxury.
He became Interested in the fishermen
land sailors who came Into the harbor
: at London and learned of the people of
! 1 nbrador who had no physicians from
j one year's end to the other. So Instead
.of raising money for someone else to go
j to Labrador as he could have easily
done pr. (irenfell went himself, aban
j doning the luxuries of London lor the
hardship of Ijibrndor. Itm they were
j not hardships for hlni nnd the triusi
i enjoyment, that of service to fellow
men he found In that desert country.

AS PIGS IN TROUGH
Such Are Business Men Scram

for Own Interests.
ASSERTS REV. DR. STIMSON
In Sermon ill Cpntpr Church Pcrlarps
Aincrli'iin iVople Arc Sidrlsli nnd
Only Convent httmlly Honest
liecluring that pigs In the trough
arc (dean In comparison with t ie
American business men who are seek
ing tariff protection for their personal
advantage, Rev. l)r. Henry A. Stlm
aon of the Manhattan Congregational
chinch of New York arraigned the
selllshnesH and "conventional honesty"
of tho American people In hlx sermon
at the C"iiter ennrch yesterday morn
ing. I'r. Sllmsoii took a hi general
subject t.ie faith an. I practice of re
ligion. I'alth without works, he said,
Is Idle, nnd works without faith are a
delusion and lead to Phnri.sreism. ,s
Hie foundation of his sermon he took
the two slatftnents that there Is a
much religion In a man as there Is
between (iod himself and no mta'e,
and that there Is n.s much In a church
as lis members practice.
The kind of work demanded, said
be, depends upon Ihe timet In whlci
we live, and In our ( li'cumstances.
First of all we should be unseinsh.
Selfishness Is a subtle, changing temp
tation and grow with the battle of
life and flic struggle of success, .start
ing In childhood, it U emphasized as
we grow up and Willi marriage be
come "family selfishness." where our
Interest In others Is lost nnd we live
only for our own family. .
Similarly In politics, what candidate
was heard to base his claims on any
thing bill what he could secure for his
own constituency'.' None based their
candidacy on their broad patriotism,
and yci there was no rebuke for this.
There Is now being presented to III"
world a Siiamcful exhibition In our
discussion over the tariff, where none
care for th welfare of the country
and how beat to collect. IU reveniiea,
but look nut solely for the benefit of
I heir own Interests. The pigs In the
trough are clean In comparison with
the business men who are seeking
protection for personal advantage.
Take, for comparion, the father of
one of the prominent Kngllsh educat
ors,, a man whose entire living came
from his farm, intrlng the;agltatlnn

was told to vole against It; that it
would Injure the farmers. What

The Presldcnt-The Indianapolis
New, not only during the campaign,
hut even after Its close has been re
pcaleiily F.nd continually making' seri
ous charges against your administra
tion as well ns against Mr. Taft In con
nection with the Panama purchase, as
for ex-ample the following:
Panama Mutter.
"The campaign Is over, and the peo
ple will have to vote tomorrow with
out any official knowledge concerning
the Panama canal deal. It has been
charged that the I'nlted State bought
from American citizen for $40,000,000
property that cost those citizen only
$12,000,000. Mr, Taft was secretary of
war at the time the negotiation was
closed. There Is no dnuht that the
government paid $10,000,000 for tlm
property. But who got tha vmoney?
We are not to know. The administra
tion and Mr. Taft do not think It right
that the people should know. The
President's brother-in-law I involved
In the scandal, but he ha nothing to
say. The candidate's brother has been
charged with hieing a member of th
syndicate, fl" has, It la true, denied
It. P.ut lie refuse to appeal to the
evidence, nil of which Is In the pin
session of the administration and who!- '
ly Inaccosslble to outsider. For weeks
Ibis e-eandal has been before the peo
ple. The records are In Washington
and they are public records. But the
pfoplo are not to see them till after
election If then."
Kven after the election till ha been
continued, It being said that Mr. Taft's
"vvenknes" In Indiana (where he ran
many thousands ahead of any other re
publican cnndldate) was ddie In a great
measure to this alleged "scandal."
What are the facts In regard to It?
W here are these "Inaccessible ree
ods?" When did they come Into the
possession of the government and what
do they contain? If the statements of
the New s are true our people ought to
know It, If not true they ought to have
some just means of estimating what
credit should he given In other matters
to a Journal which thus disseminates
falsehoods. Yours,
