WESTERN EXPOSITIONS FAVORED

WASHINGTON. Jan. 2T.-Th appearance
of Secretary Taft befora the house com
mlttee on Industrial arts and expositions
today In support of an appropriation for
the Seattle exposition In WW, was the ela
ns! fur a demonstration In his honor. The
proceedings were Interrupted when he en-
tercd the room by handclapptng and thump
lng of the tables.
Secretary Taft thought, on . account of
the Philippine finances, that government
would not be able to make any money con
trlbutlon of considerable stxe, but he said
the' War department could have the James
town-Philippine exhibit sent to Seattle.
In an indirect way. Secretary Taft touched
upon the relations betweert. Japan and the
United States. The exposition at 'Seattle,
he thought, would hare a great effect all
over the Pacific.
"There are critical developments," he
declared, "In the matter of fixing the at
tention of orientals In this country, but
nothing will bring to the attention of the
orientals so much the Interest of this coun
try In them and their Interest in us for
the purpose of trade as an exposition Ilk
this." . .
Boost (or Japanese Exposition.
. He referred to the proposed exposition in
Japan In 1912 and said the Japanese expect
to make It one of the greatest In the world
and he added: i
"I hopo It will succeed." The Japanese,
he said, were anxious that the United
States shall he prominent at the exposi
tion. The Invitation had been accepted.
"I .think the exposition will have an ex
cellent effent." said Mr. Taft. "It will
bring the countries on both sides of the
Pacific together In a wsy probably that
could not be accomplished in any other
Secretary Taft declared It was more Im
portant for the United Statea to have ex
positions In the west than In the east be
cause they have a direct bearing on our
oriental trade that Will be a substantial
contribution to our progress In that direc
tion. "The next fifty years," he said, "will
see tho greatest devolopment In the world
on the Pacific, and," he added, "It seems
to me we- ought, to be In It." '
After leaving the committee room, Mr.
Taft visited Representative Payne of New
Ybrk, republican ' floor fviannger' of the
house. In the ways and means committee

for the two Philippine commissioners.

VVA8IIINOTON, Jan. 27.-W. J. Bryan
held an impromptu reception In the rooms
of the house committee of ways and means,
where a number of democratic representa
tives and many . outsiders chatted, with
Asked . by someone to name his choice
for a running mate In the event of his
nomination at Denver, he laughingly re
plied: "I shan't tell. That is too bold a ques
tion." To the newnpapcr men he said:
"You may say that my coming to Wash
ington was not to consult any men or
set of. men as to whether or not I ought
to be a candidate for the' nomination. I
have not put that question to any man,
nor shall I. The people, not individuals,
have the sole right to deride that point.
I am not here to solicit support for my
self as a possible presidential candidate.
I never solicit Individual support. I never
ask any man to vote for me. In the past
when I was before the peopTSas a candi
dal my efforts to obtain votes have been
confined to statements of my views."
'Asked about the story published In some
quarters that former Senator Jones, Oliver
H. P.. Belmont and others came to him
a day or so ago and told him he was not
the logical candidate for the democratic
nomination, urged him not run and prom
ised to oppose him If their advice should
be disregarded, Mr. Bryan said: .
"There Is not a shred of truth In that
story. No one has advised me not to
be a candidate. I saw Senator Jones and
we did talk politics, . but nothing of the
sort reported occurred.
"1 have- as yet had no informal confer
ence since my arrival in Washington.
Tonight at a dinner at the home of Sen
ator Newlands of Nevada J shall meet
and confer with the first one-half of the
democratic senators on the alphabetical
"Tomorrow night I shall see the second
half. After that I go at once to Roanoke,
near where my daughter is attending
Mr. Bryan before leaving the capltol
dictated, In response to a request, the fol
lowing interview setting forth briefly his
Views on the'flnancal situation:
' Lack of public confidence Is what drives
money out of circulation. Restore public
confidence and money returns to Its accus
tomed channels. For lack of confidence the
best reload y is Insurance of bunk deposits
and I have urged upon the varluua states
and congress ttie passage of aome measure
similar to the law adopted by Oklahoma
This Drovldes for the creation nt
fund by assessments upon banks In pro-4
i uinr uttpuaus ana authorises
the banking board to make audi asess
ments from time to time as may be neces
sary to restore the guarantee fund when it
Is lowered by the payment of money to
depositors of failed banks.
This permits the resources of all banks to
be the resources of each bsnk and Insures
each depositor against loss. The Oklahoma
statute permits national banks to take ad
vantage of the state law and national law
should permit state banks to come under
the provisions of thst law In ststes which
have no guaranty system.
As to an elastic currency, I think provl
sions could be msde for sufficient elas
ticity In times of emergency by a law pro
vding for live Issue of United Slates notes
such notes to be loaned by the govern
ment to the banks upon adequate security
and at a rate of Interear which would com
pel the retirement of the notes when the
emergency Is over.
I suppose nearly all members Of con
gress favor -oome provision for an emer
gency currency. The democrats as a rule

favor a system under which the govern
ment will Issue and control the value of
rmripnrj currency, wnue most rrpuon
rans favor some system under which It
would be Issued and controlled by the
banks. This presents the point In dispute
between Hie two parties.
The high financiers have been largely re-
sponsinie for tne present pante ny reason
of their reckless mMhods; snd I am satis
fied that a majority of the people would
prefer to risk the government rather thsn
risk theme, men. Homebody must decide
upon the needs of the people and twt far

A DISTINCTIVE HOTEL
SI. Regis Not Only the Finest but the
Most Comfortable in New York
SOME POINTS IN ITS FAVOR
None of New York City's great hotels
has been moro talked about than the St.
Regis, at Fifth Avenue and Fifty-fifth
Street. Recognized as the finest hostelry
In the world, Its chief claim to popularity
lies in the fact that It offers the largest
measure of refined personal comfort at
The St. Regis has come to bo recognized
as tle loading living and dining establish
ment In New York. It Is not an experi
ment, but u well-established necessity In
the city's hospitality. It has been tried
ami tested by thousands, and not found
wanting. It represents a superior phase of
hotel life and stands unrivaled for com
fort arid home-likeness. . On this subject
the London Times, In an article published
soon after the St. Regis opened its doors,
remarks: "If a great art connoisseur
planned to. furnish a house so that It
would give the highest pleasure and com
fort to his intimate personal friends, he
could do nq more thah tho 8t. Regis does
for all Its guests."
For some unaccountable reason, living at
the St. Regis has been considered by many
as a luxuary beyond their means, and all
sorts of foolish and exaggerated reports
have been circulated regarding the prices
prevailing there. The truth Is, that the
cost of living at the St. Regis is no greater
than at Mother first-class hotels, and, con
sidering Its exceptional accommodations
and service, It Is even less. This Is shown
by the fact that a beautifully furnished
room of large size may be had for M a
day, or the same, with private bath, for
$5 a day. Parlor, bedroom and bath from
(12 upward. The restaurant charges are
no higher than In other first-class hotels.

RESENT CHARGE OF ROUGH WORK
Wisconsin's Srhedsle. Toaelher with

MA tMfON. Wis., Jan. n.-fflpoclaU
The festure of Wisconsin athletics now Is
the work of "Biddy" Rogets. captain
and forward of the basket ball team
who, In the game axalnst the Illlnl, es
tablished a new Intercollegiate record
by scoring twenty free throwa out of a
possible twebly-six. It Is probably safe
to ssy thst this record will stand for
some time, as games such as that played
at Urhana are few and far between.
Forty-six fouls were railed during Its
The work of the basket ball five thus
far has been both surprising and grati
fying to Wisconsin rooters. With but
one old man on the team, tha recdrd
made thus far Is three victories, all of
them by decisive scores. The men are
Just now rounding into cbndltlon and
are playing a fast article of ball, una
of the surprises of the work done thus
far is the playing of Kheppard, for
ward, and Llndemann, guard.
Coach Angell has a new combination
that was worked for the first time
against Minnesota Saturday night. This
waa tho shifting of Kwenholt from a for
ward position to a guard and the play
ing of Sheppfird In the vacant forward
position. Rogers has not struck his gait
at bosket throwing as yet,' he having
been out but two weeks. Last year,
however, he was one of the best for
wards In the league.'
Wisconsin Ont for Honors.
There is the feeling here that Wis
consin will win the championship this
year. Minnesota has but one man back
this year and it la thought that Chicago
is not as strong as " reputed. Chicago
has two stars In Page and Schommer.
The latter Is one of the best centers
playing in the west, but Coach Angell
relies upon Jack Wllce. the substitute
center, to bold him down. Wllce waa a
member of the Central -Young Men'a
Christian Association team of Mil
waukee last year and played against
Schommer a number of times, besting
him each time they met. In tho Chicago
game he will be pitted against his old
Wisconsin was much wrought up over
the charges made by Purdue after the
game last week. Coach Jamieson of the
Boilermakers Issued a statement to the
effect that the Badgers used unneces
sary rough tactics, but In the game Fri
day night, if there was any roughness,
Purdue came In for more than their

freshmen candidates out for the crew and
It begins "to look as though the Badgers
might duplicate their performance of last
year when, they bested all the other fresh
men eight at Poughkeepslc. The work thus
far haa been confined to the machines and
the men will be kept here until the lake
opens up. 'The varsity crew candidates
have been working and look very prom
ising. Commodore Hayes has been cen
sured somewhat by his tardiness In cofn

yesterday that thfe crews were certain to

Tom Barry for Coach.
It Is probable that Wisconsin's sched
ule, together with the appointment of a
football coach will be mado next week.
President Van Iliso has not made tho
appointment as yet, having directed Coach
Hutchlns to make a thorough investiga
tion Into tho merits of the applicants.
There Is little doubt, however, but that
tha man appointed will be Tom Barry, tho
former Brown university star and all
Amerlcan quarterback. Should Barry re
ceive the appointment he will also tako
hold of the base ball men. The sale of
cotipoivs has gone on rapidly this week
and there Is no doubt but that they Will
all be disposed of -by Monday, so that
Coach Hutchlns can go ahead making out
a schedule for next Bcason.
