"No , sir , Judge Estelle , you have
tnken much Inteiest In me. I llko it
heie line H'H a good location , fresh

yems old , Is a lluo looking boy , well
built , weighing about 148 pounds , curly

1'iom the Judge's comeisntion about
McBrldo , nfter the boy had been again
tnkeu In charge by the nttoudnnt , It
could easily be seen thnt the Judge
has no doubt but that the boy Is not
gulltv of the 11 line of nun dor which

Estollo. "Ho has one of the best fa

PARTY HAS KEPT FAITH.
The President Is Proud of the Achlevt
ments to Date.
Beverly , Mnss. , Aug. is John Cnlln
O'Lnughlln , writing to lua papers
Under the rule which applies to Ir
torvlovvs with the president of th
United Stntes , I nm not permitted t
quote Mr. Tnft , but I nm authorize
to say that the following oxpresso
clearly the views ho entertains of th
status of the republican party today
The republican party Is a party c
progress , a party of execution.
It has fulfilled loyally its campalg
It has been efficient and effective i
It has enacted wise and progressive
legislation In the interest of the people
ind In nccoidance with the platform
dii | ted by Its convention In 1008.
I'nilor the circumstances It la meet
thnt the people nhould give It their
orinnl linlofeuiuont by continuing It In
power In congiess at the coming elec
'lie chief executive does not speak
xalngloilously of the achievements of
administration nnd of the majority
In congress , So far as he himself Is
concerned , he feels he has done the
best that is In him for the people , Ir-
lespoctlvc of political faith , and he
r roj'oses ' to pursue those policies
which In his Judgment , will Inuie
to their benefit in the future.
Natuially. he deslies republican sue-
ess in November , less because of the
> ersonnl grntlllcntlon ho will enjoy
rom the confidence which thereby
I'll ! be expressed In him nnd his ad-
iiinNtmtlnn thnn In the opportunity
i republican majority will afford to
vi he Into law fm-reaching reforms
The people have little Idea of the
mportnnco of the legal problems that
vill press for solution during the next
ongiess the Inst of this ndmlnls-
Before the congicss elected In No-
ember shall meet the supreme couit
vill hand down Its decisions in the
Standard Oil and tobacco trust cases ,
\nA If the contention of the govern-
iient be sustained , as the president
) elieves , n vast leoignnlzntlon of busl-
less will follow , nnd legislation must
be provided to ennblc the government
> ropeily to grapple with the new
If the government be beaten , then
there will be n universal demand for
the stiengthening of the antl-tiust
aw , or at least the piovlsion of a
remedy which will foice huge combt-
mtlons ol cnpltnl to conduct business
note In the Interest of the people
thnn is the case todny.
The president nhendy has framed , \
olutlon in his federal incorporation
plan for all corporations doing nn In-
teistate business , which he submitted
: o congiess in n special message last
The taiiff experts will submit to the
piesldeut within two years lecommcn-
latlons for levision of ceitain sched
ules of the tmlff law. The pioblem
of cuiioncy lefoim must be dealt
with couiageoiisly. Effective govern
mental contiol of laihoad capitaliza
tion must be secured. The demand
of labor respecting the issue of in
junctions must bo considered wiselj
nnd with due regnrd for the effect
of the nctlon tnken upon nil the im-
poitnnt inteiests involved.
Further lefoims for the conservn
tion of national resources , which vvll !
insure the pieservation of natura
wealth for this and future generations
and at the snme time permit wise am
sane exploitation nnd development
must bo enncted.
I have icferred to only the more
striking things in the legislative pro
gram the president still has in mine
to show how necessary , in his view , is
the election of a lepnbllcan majoiltj
in the fall. A demociatlc house woult
lefuse , of course , to grant him tin
legislation he so eainestly wishes. I
would hamper his administration ii
eveiy possible way.
And while , from a legislative poln
of view , he would be able to achievi
little with a democratic house , it 1
the belief of the president he stll
could do many things In adminlstra
tion which would be of grent vnlu
to the couutiy. He proposes to in
troduce economy in government , t
plnce the several departments upon i
business basis , to create an elllcien
machine which will run smoothly am
at the lowest possible cost.
As an indication of what the , pros :
dent has in mind attention may b
called to the reorganization and sav
ing which have occurred in the treas
my department and In the postoffic
depmtment. The Intter depnrtmen
actually turned back ten out of th
seventeen millions of the deficit fo
which nn npproprlntion was made. A
n result nt the end of the last flsca
year instead of the anticipated deflci
of $40,000,000 theie was a surplus o
$13,000,000 , which , as the preslden
suggests , is a truly wonderful show
The president is not concerns
about the effect of the elections upoi
his personnl fortunes. Ho is no
looking forwmd to 1912 , not cllrecl
ing his acts or his policies towan
securing renominatlon and re-electioi
to the office he now holds.
He is seeking to do the things a
hand and to do them in the righ
way. If his course be approved , wel
nnd good. If It be not approved , we !
and good also. That this is his stat
of mind Is shown by his decision note
to take any managerial part In th
approaching campaign. .
Ho will do what ho can to nssls
the pm ty , but he will not permit poll
tics to intercfer with his work. Fo
Instnnco , he hns to make such -imporl
ant appointments as a chief justlc
and two associate justices of th
United States supreme court. H
must organize a commission to ir
vestigate railroad cnpltnllzntion , i
commission to reform business metl :
oils In government departments , :
universal peace commission.
Ho must appoint five lawyers n
judges of the United States clrcul
bench , who shall constitute the cour
of commerce created by the recen
lailroad law. As ono of the men sc
lected will bo a member of the intot
state commerce commission , an abl
successor must bo chosen.
Nothing , In the Judgment of tin
piesident , is more important than tin
appointment of the right men.
In addition Mr. Taft desires to hav >
his annual message drafted before In
returns to Washington. Ho will havi
to consider and pass upon the rocom
mendatlons of the army board of on
glneers , formed to select the reclamn
tlon projects which shall be carriet
without delay to completion.
Eveiy depmtment hns It largo ques
tions of policy which constantly arc
being placed before the president for
So far ns what h s been accomplish-
ed Is coiuerned , the piesident la proud
of It. There ought to be no doubt on
/this scoie. And bomo of the pilde
I he feels la founded in the fact that
the legislation enacted wns enncted
by the legular vote of the lepubllcnn.
It Is tine some ehmiges were made
; ln the v m lous bills nt the Instnnco of
the iiiMii gents nnd democrnts , but
the pioaldent nssrts they were few In
number. The mnln features , with the
exception .of the tmlff law , were fore
shadowed In speeches ho made be
fore congress assembled 'last Decem
ber , In his several messages , nnd In
bills which wore especlnlly prepiirod
by his dliectlon for the consldeintlon
I The way In which the tariff law
has operated has glv n the president
considerable satisfaction. He fully
justifies the clnlm he made for It at
Wlnoiin , that It was the best law of
the kind ever enacted. The value of
the law as a revenue pioducer Is es
tablished. With icferenco to Its ef-
i feet upon the consumer , the piesident
insists that It geneially Is in his In-
Numeious reductions were made In
the duties on necessities , while the In
creases i elated to luxuiles , such as
wine and the like. Proof of this fact
and of the falsity of the clnlm thnt

cost of living bus been furnished the

of Tecumseh , this afternoon. Mr. Bad-
burg was nt work in the field with
a riding disc plow. The child had
gone to the field and did not return
to the house , as the father had order
ed him to. While the father was plowIng -
Ing , Walter laid down In a furrow and
went to sleep. The dust wns so dense
the father did not see the sleeping
child and drove over him. Ho made
a heiolc effort to catch the child be-
foie the disc cnught his body , nnd In
doing so , Mr. Bndburg lost his balance
and fell on the doublotrees nt the
mules' feet. The team ran away , the
plow passing over the boy's body and
throwing Mr. Badburg off , ono disc
going over him.
One of the boy's legs was complete
ly severed and his body was mutilated.
It required four hours for the burgeon
to dress the wounds. At a late hour
the child was still alive , though it Is
not thought ho will survive. Mr. Bad-
burg was not seriously hurt.
