President Taft Discusses
"Cant of Demagogues."
Chief Executive Enlivens Gathering of
St. Louis Business Men With Vig
orous Speech Will Confer With
Republican Leaders.
St. Louis. May J5. After winding up
his stay here with n reinnrknhte speech
In which h denounced "demagogues
and preachers of cant" who linve trou
bled him, President Tuft left St. Louis
early this morning for Washington,
where he will confer with liepubllcan '
leaders concerning the situation In
congress and particularly the probable ;
fate of the railroad bill, before resuui-'
Ing his journey eastward.
Information from Washington that;
forty-three senators had decided to i
stand by the railroad bill as it is, with J
the pooling and merger provisions out,
reached President Taft before his do-
parture. The president was greatly'
encouraged by the news and hoped
that the bill may now go through. He
believes, It was said, that with changes
already made many senators who here
tofore opposed' the measure may fall
Into line.
As to the possibility of veto, the
president would not talk, preferring to
return to Washington before he dis
cussed that question.
It Is not believed, however, that the
president will use the veto power. It
Is possible that he will come out with
a strong statement fixing the blame If
the bill passes In emasculated shape.
President Taft denounced the dema
gogues, the preachers of caut and
those who see only evil and delay -In
the courts of the nation In his speech
before the Business Men's league at
the Southern hotel. The president
spoke with an earnestness, with such
emphasis and vigor, that his audience
was qiilfe carried away.
His defense of the supreme court
and of his own appolutmcnts to that
court was delivered in tones that rang
with emotion.
During most of the speech the presl- j
dent gesticulated little, but his faeo
srew red as he recited the tale of criti
cism that has In some parts of the na
tion greeted his selections to the great
tribunal. All the way through the
speech his hearers broke In with pro
longed applause, and at the end, when
Mr. Taft wound up nil that serious ad
dress with a brief discourse on basts
ball, the crowd beat the tables and
cheered loudly.
The president hadn't Intended to
make a serious address at all, but
when President Wilson of the league
referred to the appolntuipnt of Judge
Horace Lurton and Governor Hughes
to the supreme court Mr. Taft found a
subject that warranted the use of more
than the two minutes he expected to
While the president's only reference
to the "Insurgents' was In one of the
moments when ho smiled, It was evi
dent that he had In mind the utter
ances from his "enemies" lu the sen
ate and house against his two supreme
eourt si'lectlons. Not only did he de
fend the supreme court, but he declar
ed, too, that contention that the abil
ity should be given the poor man to
take his case, even if It Involves but
$25, up to that tribunal Is the windy
talk of the demagogue and politician
against the law's delay. Mr.Tuft also
was tint footed In his assertion that
court procedure be changed to expe
dite the business of litigants.
Passaic, N. J May 5. In anticipa
tion of the visit of President Taft,
vho Is to be the guest of honor at the
board of trade dinner, Passaic Is don
ning gala attire. Already many public
and private buildings are decorated
with Hags and bunting, while great
streamers are being stretched across
the main street, through which the
president Is to be escorted from tliu
railroad station to the banquet hall.
Titled German, Who Married American
Heiress, Died Rich.
Berlin, May 5. Couut Waldemor Orl
ola, who died recently, left $18,000,000,
an extraordinary fortune In Germany,
where accumulations of such tiizo uro
extremely rare. His will Hhows that a
considerable part of his wealth was
drawn from New York, Ho was tho
owner of a plot on Wall street, on
which there Is a thirty-two story sky
icraper, which came Into his posses
sion In 18S0 through his marriage to
Miss Mortimer.
Pension Bill Passed.
Washington, May D. In less than
fifteen minutes the senate considered
and passed tho pension appropriation
bill, carrying about $155,000,000. Sen
ator Seott said that 31,000 pensioners
Jiud died last year.
California Governor Won't
Stop Jeff rles-Johnson Fight.
Omaha, Kelt., May 5. All doubt that
the Johnson-.Tolfrlos light at Emery
ville, Cal., on July 4 would not be held
was dispelled by Governor Glllett of ,
California while passing through Oma-1
ha on his way to Washington. lie an
nounced that he would not Interfere In
the big light. Tills statement fore
stalls the recent clerical movement
against the contest that has attracted
worldwide attention. The governor's
announcement at this early date came
as a surprise.
Governor Glllett is said to have Inti
mated that the light will be a good
thing for California and is apparently
linn In his decision not to stop It. In
regard to the ministerial agitation
against the contest, he said that the
crusade did not concern hint very
much. Ills idea Is to let the ministers
of the country go ahead and fight out
the question of whether or not the bat
tit1 shall be held.
The governor said that he fully ap
preciated the ardor and seriousness of
the ministers' protests. However, he
added that It was perfectly legal to
hold a contest at Emeryville under the
statutes of the state of California and
did not see why or how he could pre
vent It. It Is said that the governor's
statement was made with a view to
ward blanketing the agitation of the
clergy before the movement grew too
strong, thus causing unnecessary dltll
cultles at the last minute.
Passing of Reform Measure Scatters
Race Track Lobby.
Albany, N. Y., May Itace track
followers, who assembled here In an
effort to defeat the Agnew-Perklns bill
abolishing oral betting, have gloomily
departed from Albany, owing to the
passing of the measure by the senate
by u vote of :U to IB.
Senator Grady, the silver tongued
Tammany orator, who has opposed
drastic race track legislation, was en
raged over the triumph of the Hughes
senators, whom he characterized as
"No better than olllce boys."
"1 don't know where this frenzied
subserviency to the cant of reformers
will end," he said. "Thank God! I
shall not he here to see It.
"There was a day when no man
could semi or a senator and bid him
do thus and so. 1 saw the day when
senators had no fear of newspaper
rant and the clamor of the mob.
"Then the commission of senator
was held ly no lackey of men In
power. 1 rejoice that I am soon to
pass from a body so lowered In man
hood and Influence."
The reform 1)111 Is looked upon as
the death blow to race track gam
bling. It Is slill tlie occasion of n storm
of bitter dispute.

Regulars In Senate Strive to Bring
Insurgents Into Line.
Washington, May 5. Consideration
of tlie administration railroad bill was
resumed In tlie house today, but vot
ing on the amendments to the bill lu j
the senate has been suspended pending
an effort by the regulars to regain con- .
trol of the situation and preserve the '
party organization. No further test of s
strength on the measure will be risked i
In. the senate before next Monday. I5y
that time President Taft will have re
turned to 'Washington to add his ef
forts to the heroic attempts being
made now by the senate conservatives
to bring some of their more radical
brethren in hehlnd the Taft program
of legislation. The president will be In
Washington tomorrow.
The administration supporters are no
longer appealing for votes on the mer
its of the Taft railway bill, but have
turned to the probably more effective

to enact the Taft legislation at this
session will mean certain party defeat
In the fall, with faireachlng effects
upon Republican campaigns of tlie
more distant future.
Evidences were not lucking that this
tack by the regulars was yielding some
results. Insurgents In both the house
and senate have been considerably so
bered In the last few weeks by Demo
cratic successes, and It is understool
that a serious question has arisen
among the Insurgents themselves ns to
the length that they should go In op-
posing tno J nu program oi legisiiuum.

cousin Is the most radical In his views
on the policy to be pursued. Ho ob

Is ono of the Insurgents who believe lu

they had forty-four senators pledged

short haul amendments. I this Is truo
It will require only two Democratic

New York, May 5. New York bank
ers are concluding arrangements for
the largest nnd most Important sales
of American securities In Paris that
have ever been made, with the excep
tion of the year before the panic. Then
the Pennsylvania railroad, the bond
market here being heavy, broke tho
thick Ice of the Paris market with a
sale of $50,000,000 bonds, nnd the New
York, New Haven and Hartford fol
lowed with a sale of $.10,000,000 deben
tures. These were the biggest sales of
American corporation bonds made in
, Paris up to that time. Yesterday the
negotiations which the bankers had
under wny involved the sale of at least
$i50.0)0,0(K-raIlroad bonds, $10,000,000
New York city revenue warrants nnd,
according to report from ordinarily re
liable sources, about $:',0,000,000 more
bonds of various railroads.
The principal flotation nnd one that
is all but agreed upon Is one of about

able to put out a bond Issue according

"Of course." he said, "we are hous

clare that little bread Is being baked
and that they will surely win.
