DEFENDS HIS APPOINTMENTS. 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 take. 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.

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. BETTING MEN DEPART. 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. CANADIANS CAPTURE TUG.

Whether these "ex changes" form the center of the so called "white slave" organization does not appear, but the revelations con cerning them seem to bo the strongest Indication of nu organized traffic which the Investigators have hit upon us yet. So far most of the lnforma-1 tlon given to the grand Jury which has" the traflic uuder Investigation, has . been so general that John 1").

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 "Piwiil of party expediency They were 1 laboring lu the senate lobbies and com- mlttee rooms witli the near Insurgents trying to make, them see that failure 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. As usual, senator i.a roneueoi vi- cousin Is the most radical In his views on the policy to be pursued. Ho ob jects to accepting any reasonable com promise Other iusurgents are willing to accept reasonable concessions from the liepubllcan organization. A long conference of tho Insurgents was held, and It Is understood that there wero some sharp clashes. Senator Cummins Is ono of the Insurgents who believe lu accepting reasonable concessions and enacting as good a bill us possible. Tho administration senators said that as tho result of their day's labor they had forty-four senators pledged to stand by tho president on tho bill, with the exception of the long and short haul amendments. I this Is truo It will require only two Democratic votes to give the regulars control of tho situation. This statement, how ever, Is derided by tho Insurgents, who contend that their strength Is unbro ken. How to Make Spaghetti Salad.

BIG BONDSALES. Paris Bu' s Many Millions of Amer .jan Securities. ST. PAUL DEAL $50,000,000. Big Four A t oging to Sell $10,000,000. New York City Has Sold $10,000,000 Revenue Bonds Pennsylvania Record Is Nearly Reached. 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 $.".0,000,000 bonds of the Chicago, Mil waukee and St. Paul. That company's Pacific coast extension has been open pd f((r bU!!lness jn Ule ,ust yoar anJ he company Is constructing branch linos for I use as feeders to the main system. On account of tho stagnant condition o the bond market most of this year the company, though Itt credit is tlie highest, found It InadviS' able to put out a bond Issue according to the terms obtainable here. The ex penses of the flotntlon of a loan In Paris are v.ery heavy, but the Interest rate Is lower. Apart from this consid eration It was deemed expedient to of fer the bonds in Paris because that center Is long of funds, whereas thft New York money market has been weakened by shipments of $.10,000,00C gold to Loudon in recent weeks.
