Country Hri Chosen the Beat Man
Washington, Juue 18.liii:nrdiatn
ly upon receiving news of the nomi
nation of Secretary Taft for the pres
idency, President Roosevelt made the
fo Icwlnj ciatenunt:
I feel that the coun'ry Is indeed to
be congratulated upon the nomination
or Mr. Taft I have known him in
ti.iiatoly f.-r r any yrais and I have
a peculiar feeling for him be
cause throughout that time we have
worked for the same object with the
same purpose and ideals. I do not
believe there can be found in the
whole country a man so well fitted
to be president He Is not only ab
solutely fearless, absolutely disinter
ested and upright, but he has the
widest acquaintance with the. nation's
needs without and within, and the
broadest sympathies with all our cit
izens. He would be as emphatically
a president of the plain people as Lin
coln, yet not Lincoln himself would
be freer from tho least taint of dema
gogy, the least tendency to arouse or
appeal to class hatred of any kind.
He hus a peculiar and intimate know
ledge of and sympathy with the needs
of all our people of tho farmer, of
the wage worker, of the business, of
the property owner. No matter what
a man's occupation or social position
no matter what section of the country
from which he comes, if he is an hon
est hard working niun, who is trying
to do his duty towards his neighbor
and toward the country, ho can rest
assured that be will have In Mr. Taft
the most upright of representatives
and the most fearless of champions.
Mr. Taft stands against privilege
and he stands pre-eminently for the
broad principles of American citizen
ship which lie at the foundation of
our national well being."
