The tap of Chairman New' gavel fell at
12:1 o'clock, but It was some little time be.
fore the desired quiet In the hall was se
cured. Part of the delay waa due to the
timely arrival of a delayed portion of the
Ohio delegation bearing a big blue aatln
banner with a picture of Secretary Taft
lithographed in colors upon It. There was
cheering for a time and then the band
Struck up "Hall to tha Chief." The demon
stration waa not a sustained ona. .
Charles P. Taft was ona of the Ohio con
tingent and. with former Governor Her
rick,, ,had. front seats near, the center aisle.
Just across from them, waa the Indiana del-egatton,-with
Senator Hemen way In tha
alale. Thus the Taft and Fairbanks boorni
wera brought Into proximity.
The Taft banner was not. allowed in the
hall and was taken unostentatloualy to ona
of the aide rooms.
Chlrman New'a first utterance was "tha
secretary will make an announcement."
Instantly John Malloy of Ohio, who has a
marveloualy strong voice, stepped to the
front and Informed tha convention that a
flashlight waa about to be taken and urg
ing that alt remain quietly In their aats,
as there would be- no danger to anyone.
He Indicated the point of the convention
ball at which the camera was located and
as It waa In the rear of the hall, the dele
gatea made a scramble to get Into the pic
ture with their faces instead of their backs.
Chairman New then spoke as follows:
Tha hour has arrived for the representa.
tlvea of the republican party to meet In
Its fourteenth national convention at the
end of. almost twelve years of the most
brilliant administration- In the history of

When the applause and muslo following

commending the secretary of the treasury:
"I congratulate you upon the admirable

In this crisis, have acted with such wis

That such a disturbance should have oc
curred under such circumstances furnishes
the strongest evidence that there la some
thing Inherently defective In the system it
self, which can only be reached by a thor
ough overhauling. Bot this system, hastily
Inaugurated, by Secretary Chase during the
exigencies of war, while confessedly de
fective In Its Inability to respond at all
time to the varying and exacting demands
of trade, yet,- during the forty-five years
of It existence, ha served a wise and
beneflclent purpose. .
Under It the public credit was restored
and advanced until our bonds float at a
lower rale of .Interest than those of any
other nation. Under It specie payment
were resumed, ' the gold standard estab
lished and maintained, and very paper

this system questionable and worthless

lation, supplanted by a national currency
of unquestionable character ana stamnty.
While other countries have added to their
burden of debt, with an Increased rate of
Interest thereon, th! nation ha paid off
1,494 .million of Its obligations, and th
present administration has lessened the
volume of our Indebtedness by $101,141,628,
and In Its refunding operations has reduced
the annual Interest . charge from !30,371.4SS
During the period' of Its existence, with
aggregate deposit of 66 billion, the average
loss has been only one-half of 1 per cent.
The national banks have served a bene
flclent purpose In uplifting the credit of the
government: in . lessening the burden of
taxation; In securing a sound and safe
currency, that floats at par in our own
country as well a In every commercial
