Richard U. Metcalfe's palace overlook
ing the locks of Panama, according to a
letter he received, contains fpurteen
rooms and seven baths. "Think- of that
for a democrat," ' he said to the Omaha
Commercial club In a speech at the lurlcht
eon In his hpnor. '
"There are nfnety-two chairs and thirty
two tables," he said. "What an aggrega
tion of furniture for a, plain newspaper
man. All i II neea xo lane wim mo ogwn
there, I believe, will be my 'nightie.' "
8(111 an Omalinn,
With these personal touches In his
speech Mr. Metclafe impressed upon tho
Omaha business men that he still Is an
Omahan and his heart temalnB in this
city. There will be no key t5 Itta houso
in Panama for Nebraskansr he declared,
and whenever he finds a chance to favor
Omaha and Nebraska he will not miss It
Working for universal peace and the up
building of commerce between South
America and the United States, he said,
would be his principal task. Much of ba
address, in fact, was on peace.
"I have heard spme say that William
II, Taft'a name would go down to ob
livion,", said he, "but for his work to
ward world peace, Mr. Taft's name will
be written high on the wall of fame in
history. The most. Important thing Mr.
Wilson and Mr. Bryan can do will be
to carry out th.e. Ideas for world peaco
that were laid down tJy Mr. Taft."
' Itevleur Old Times.
Mr. 'Metcalfe began his address by
complimenting Omaha on the spirit of
altruism that has always prevailed hero.
Ha told of the days when he was a re
porter on The Bee under Edward Rose-
water, how he was Impressed by thU
spirit' of helpfulness, and") remarked about
the aid Omaha .sent to. the sufferers
from the bllxtard ojfjSSs.
"If all tho bread cast upon the waters,
by this town were to come back," he
said, "you would have (be largest bakery
in all the hitory of the world."
Mr. Metcalfe talked Interestingly on the
Panama canal and what it will do for
the commerce of the United States, It
was not built principally as a war. meas
ure, he declared, hut as a great machine
for upbuilding of commerce. There I no
