A dispatch to the Lincoln (Neb.)
Journal (rep.) says: "Political sig
nificance attaches to the action of

uments the Cannon speech at Kansas

frankable and can be circulated with
out expense, save of printing. This
action is taken to mean that the con
servative republicans Intend to Btart
an active campaign in support of the
tariff bill passed at the last session
and in defense of tho organization
and course of the majority in con
gress. President Taft's Winona
speech gives the tariff bill and the
nien who voted for it a bill of health
to loyal republicans of tho country.
Speaker Cannon's Kansas City
speech defends tho house organiza
tion and arraigns republicans such as
Senators LaFollette and Cummins
and Bristow for their final vote on
the bill. There is .evidence in sev
eral quarters that the conservative
worm has turned at last and that the
LaFollette and Cummins section of
republicans are not to have things
all their own way."
