Cone forth that any views he might express
regarding the acquisition ot territory by the

the demonstrations of approval which
greeted hla utterance dispelled thla idea.
Frequent atopa were niade during the

President Roosevelt la hla address at
Fitchburg devoted himself almost exclu
sively to the trusts, which he Intended aa
aa answer to hla orltlcs. He aald In part:
Haa Not Change Hla Mind.
If some of those who have seen cause
for wonder In what I have said this Tell on
the subject of great corporations, which are
popularly, although with technical inac
curacy, known aa trusts, would take the
trouble to read my messages when I was
governor, what I said on the stump two
years ago. and what I put Into my first
piesaaga to congress. I think they would
have been iens astonished.
I said nothing on the stump that I did
not think I could make good and I shall
, not hesitate now to take the position which
I then advocated. I am even more anxious
that you who hear what I say should think
of It than that you should apphud it. I am
not going- to try to define with technical ac
curacy what ought to be tneaat when wa
speak of a trust. But If bv truat we mean
merely a big corporation, then I ask you to
jonder upon the utter folly of the man who
either In a aplrlt of rancor or in a apirtt of

giving you an idea of what he ineana really

SANDUSKY, O., Sept. 2. Mayor Tom U
Johnson of Cleveland won a decisive vic
tory today In the meeting preliminary to
the democratic ate convention, which meeta
here tomorrow. Ever since he waa selected
aa chairman of the convention by the state
central committee It haa been the general
opinion that thla occasion would be made
the public opening of hla candidacy for th
next democratic nomination for the presi
dency. In that respect his success baa been
phenomenal. No Ohio candidate for the
presidency ever had mor unanimity of sen
timent In hla favor among the delegates at
a atate convention than was shown at the
meetings tonight by congressional districts
for the selection of officers and members of
the varloua committees. The committee
on credential, permanent organisation and
rulea and order of business are almost
unanimously with him for anything ha
wanta. One of them gave him the double
honor at once of agreeing on a report to
make the temporary organisation perma
nent. . . -
The Johnaon men were opposed only In
th selection of the committee on resolu
tion and the membera ot the new state
central committee. In some district these
contests were closer and more bitter than
expected. The Johnson men aecured four
teen of the twenty-one atat committee
men, with three countlea pending, and a
large majority of the committee on resolu
tions. Relentless Warrlsg,
The Johnson men during the day made no
concessions, and In some case gave ''so
quarter" to their opponenta. Thla caused
the minorities on the two committees
named to fight, but the fighting waa soon
over. When the roll of the commute on
resolutions was called the membera '.rom
the First, Third, and Eleventh districts op
posed the endorsement of Bryan and tha
Kansas City platform and other Johnson
planks, but the Johnson platform finally
carried without changea and will be ao re
ported to the convention tomorrow and
adopted without any minority report or
other obstruction, aa had been threatened
earner in tne evening, it baa been custom
ary alwaya first to appoint a subcomm.ttee
of three or Bv to draft a platform and re
port th same to th full committee, but
that waa found not necessary tonight, aa
Mayor Johnaon handed the full committee
hla "draft" and th full committee aoon
completed It work.

The platform aa It came from Mayor
Johnaon waa agreed to by a vote of alxteen
to five In the committee on resolutions, but
it win not be given out for publication until
It la adopted tomorrow by the convention.
The resolutions are fully In accord with
tha views ot Mayor Johnson on both
national and atate Isauea. They favor
new municipal code for Ohio cities, with
home rule aa the cardinal principle and the
federal plan aa secondary, and denounce
what la called "municipal government by
boards." They alao denounce the proposi
tion of perpetual franchises and favor tha
granting of such charters subject to popu

WASHINGTON, Sept. 2. (Special.) A
Nebraakan haa come to the front with a
very unique design for an official flag for

government in connection with exposition
work. The original Louisiana Purchase ter

observing tbe map it will readily be no

rltory make almost a perfect design of the
national emblem floating In a gentle breeze.

Th fact that the prealdent haa not aeen

not reached a decision and that he la

matlona that tha permanent treaty pro
vided for In the Piatt amendment, and
which ia Intended to give full force and

however, would not make an extra aesslon

From assurances given the preeldent it
I confidently expected that Cuba will In
good faith enter into a treaty In accord
ance with the terma of the Piatt amend
