Washington. Nov. 11—At 8''"
Wednesday night President Tait
completed hia first long tour of tl.
States as president. So far as
Mr. Taft is concerned he is satisfied
with the result of his trip. He lia
tome into contact with the people of
the Middle and Far West and, while
some of his receptions have been of
«en
Uier unfriendly character, he has
able to present his views to the
people.
The Taft tour has carried the pres
ident over 12,7i5 miles by rail and
water and over 600 miles by auto
and practically 500 by stage or horse
drawn vehicle. It has cost the TJnit 1
States $20,000, which will come out of
the fund appropriated by congress for
bis traveling expenses The president
has made upward of 300 speeches from
platforms, rear vestibules of Us car
and open air.
Entertainments Cost $3,000,000.
The cost to the various localities
that have "entertained" him is very
large. A conservative estimate is
$3,000,000. For the little entertain
ment at Juarez, where he was the
guest of the president of Mexico for
that ''little dinner," the cost is de
clared to have been $500,000.
Ten. $15 and $20 a plate was
charged each one that attended the
several dinners given the president,
while at Los Angeles they struck the
record of hijfh figures, $2f. a plate.
Mr. Taft himself believes his trip
through the South has gained him
•atisfaetion and has made him many
friends among the people.
Me considers that he is now in
touch with the several elements in his
owi party and will be better prepared
to deal with all of the problems that
will come before him this winter dur
ing the session of congress.
Hss Many 8ouvenirs of Trip.
Vhe president returns with all man
Bar of souvenirs of the trip, ranging
ftom a golf trophy to a "great seal of
a city'' in solid gold. If Mrs. Taft
wants to know what happened on the
trip and what was most notable at
any of the banquets she has only to
rummage through the trophies which
clutter up the baggage car and she
can get a line on it.
The president's guards estimated
the number of persons he has talked
to on the present trip at 3,000,000.
The coolness of his greetings in the
West has been offset by the warmth
of the greeting in the South and his
friends assert that there was no rea
son to consider the Western recep
tion unfriendly, rather they charac
terise it as "educational" and as serv
ing to show the president where the
West stands on a number of prob
lems.

and Thomas B. Harned, who were
included in the blanket indictments
returned by the grand jury last June

ney Wise will be carried immediately

Parsons, Washington B. Thomas and
other officials of the sugar trust.

opinion of Judge Holt In the cases of

Trcasuo .,i u Wacli, the ou-toms offi
cials are iuu-i prating i tssiftcation
questions nrisfn- under the new tariff
in favor of lover duties rather than
higher oner. This is a distinct de
parture from tt- policy that long pre
vailed in the treasury department.
Secretary MaeVeagh takes the view
that the present law was downward
revision in theory. His own leanings
are also toward moderate duties. It
is supposed that President Taft takes
the same view, that in case of uncer
tainty it is better to give the public
the benefit of the doubt.
