toia Koraker and Dick."
Although beaten by a decisive vote
In all the preliminary contests, the ad
herents of Senator Foraker In tho

branch extended by the Taft sup
porters, and when tho resolution, ns
amended, was finally accepted, no ef
fort was made to make the action of
the committee unanimous.
The resolution as adopted by tho

elate central committee or Ohio, that

high character, great ability and dis
tinguished services of Secretary Taft,
Indorsei his candidacy for the presi
dency, and, further, wo declare that

other states bo Invited to cooperate
with the Republicans of Ohio to se
cure hi nomination In 1008.
"And bo It further resolved that we
emphatically declare that tho Repub
licans of Ohio ate opposed to the
elimination from public life of Sena
toib J. 11. Foraker and Charles Dick,
whose services to tho party and state
have been distinguished, by ability,
Wisdom and patriotism."

candidacy by tho ltepubllcan state
central committee wns vigorously op
posed by Senator Foraker, who, upon

mittee, ppenly voiced his dissent to
' The senior seiuttor from Ohio con

PROTEST AGAINST THE FINES
Railroads and Government Clash Over
Chicago, July 31. Western railroads
are near an open break with the post
ofllce department over the transporta
tion of the malls, owing to a number
of lecent orders. The latest cause of
grievance Is the Imposition of heavy
fines on nearly all the roads for de
lay in delivering the malls. To con
sldei the situation, a number of rail
road oftlcials had an Important confer
ence here. One official declnred that
tho flues levied by the government
ngalnst his road iu ono quarter amount
ed to $!0,o00. A similar condition
on other roads wns leported.
Tho fines were assessed under a
rule which went Into effect In July,
100C The loads are amazed to find
that they are In danger of losing 10
per cent of their mall pay unless they
revise schedules and place their jnall
trains upon running time which they
know they can maintain in all seasons
and In all kinds ol weather.
Tho new rule, tho loads claim. Is
oppressive and unjust. It provides
that If the malls are late tefi times on,
