ST. 'LOt'IS. Mo., Oct. 6. Special Tela- I
gram.) William H. Taft' tour of the west
ended tonight. He la to apeak at Chicago
and -Oalesburg, but his addreaa In those
citlea will be non-polltlcal. It will be two
weeka tomorrow alrtca the Taft apeclal left
Cincinnati. In .that time twelve atatea
hava been rlalted. and fully 1,000,000 peraona
have anan and heard tha republican candi
date fur the presidency.
All misgivings of tha success of the trip
were abandoned before Mr. Taft had been
away -froth home" two daya, but the moat
optimistic member of hla .party were sur
prised at the remarkable ovations given
him; all ha penetrated In tha west
and visited states which had been Hated In
the doubtful column. Having seen with his
own eyes," heard with his own ears, and
discussed face to face with the local leaders
the political problems of Wisconsin, Min
nesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, South
Dakota, North Dakota and Colorado. Mr.
Taft I firmly convinced that these states
will return republican pluralltlea In Novem
ber. In more than half the atatea vlalted
by the Taft party there are factional dif
ferentia among the republicans on state
matters. Mr. Taft realised the Impossi
bility of harmonising these differences, but
In every Instance he was able to bring to
gether tha .copfllctlng, 'elements, and line
them up solidly, and enthualastlcally for
the national ticket. 1 '
Will Star a Road.
Probably the largest average crowds of
the trip were encountered In Kansas, but In
every atata visited th slse and temper
of those wha gathered at the railway sta
tions to see and cheer tha republican nomi
nee was revelation to the local com
mittees. Thl ts Mr. Taft' first experi
ence of a political camnnigr.er and his stic
cens has been so pronounced that he de
sires to atay on the road every day until
election. . Accordingly, when he reaches
Chicago, ha will urge Chairman Hitchcock
and Senator Dixon, to make up an Itinerary
that will occupy every day for the next
four weeks- No member of the party is a
better traveler than Mr. Taft himself. He
hunrtmiased a menl sne tea Vina; CJnrln
nsti and though Wi hours have "been long,
and his work arduous, he has reated well
r-d apparently, la. aj vigorous as when he
started.' He has enjoyed ge'tlng acqua'nted
with the people and -learning their point of
view of public question. The fact Is Mr.
Taft la convinced that he will be elected
president, and as hs has" said more than
once, h desires to know the temper of the
people respecting the great economic prob
lems which are to come before congress
during his administration.
It Is Mr. Taft'i wish to go south on his
next trip. He has visions of Kentucky,
Tennessee, North Carolina and even Geor
gia being carried by .the republican this
year, lie will urge tha campaign manager
to Include these states In his Itinerary. In
the two weeks of his tour Mr. Taft has
mad IS) 'speeches. His voice, Which gave
him considerable trouble for the first few
days, has Improved with practice, and Is
now In good condition.
Judga Taft'a St. iouls reception waa a
fitting elmax of his tour, for he had record
crowds, He struck this city on the day of
the festival of the veiled -prophet, and
found more than 1,000,000 people here. In
cluding visitors from all the adjoining
states. There waa a reception committee of
100 first Voters at ths railway station, and
tha streets-were blocked with cheering Taft
entnua'asta. It was a fitting climax of a
wonderful trip, and corroborates Mr. Taft'a
belief that Missouri may cease being "a
strangaf Jn a republican family of states."

papera estimated that fully 10,000 strangera
cam to tha city hist to say "Hello Bill"
to tha Ohloan. Csrta'n It waa that
wherever ha went or stayed. Judge .'Taft
waa tha center of Immenae crowds. The
Una 1 of march from tha atatlon to tha
Planters hotel was through two crowds of
people, who bio keft either side of, tha

detail of mounfd police and a band,
preceded tha carriage of the candidate. He
was compelled to stand with hie hat In

a mil!-, acknowledging the salutations of

The plana for sa orderly reception to the
public at the Planters hotel were upaet
by tha crush of mart and women, who
wpt tsld tha guard at the door and
pushed their way Into the lobby and up

at ths head of the stairs and received In

Welcomed to Omaha by Mayor. Dahlman
and W. 8. Wright, president of the Com

Carriers' association held a lively,' but' en'
tlrely harmonious . meeting at Hotel Rome
yesterday. A letter 'from .President' Roose
velt to tho convention was read nt th aft

amusement over where to spend their even
ing at a theater where "The ' Devil" Is
being played, or at 'the Auditorium to- hear
Governor Hughes speak. They divided be
tween the two places, but not along politi
cal lines, It was announced.
The first session was exclusively devoted
to addresses of welcome1 and responses.

The convention waa not called to order
until ll o'clock and previous to this hour
delegates thronged the lobby of the hotel
exchanging grtetlngs, posing for photo

A unanimous sentlruen prevails among
the delegates that politics shall not be
permitted to .interfere with the good of the
order and that rather than see any bitter-
might have hurt the free delivery service
in a number of ways.
It is barely . possible that Nebraska will
have a candidate of ita own. Members of
the delegation are considering bringing
out for vice president Mrs. Ruth Lynch
Kenyon of Monroe, who has a record ca
reer not only as a woman carrier, but as a
carrier of either sex. The Nebraskans
championing her candidacy argue that the
women who deliver, mall should be rec
ognized and that Mrs. Kenyon Is conspic
uously successful among them. Her posi-

Five hundred delegates heard President

Sheldon, while unable to attend thi ses

Th visitors received a cordial welcoms

a couple of stories, he launched Into formal

we think one of the greatest in the west,
I am always glad to have the opportunity

This Is a community which greet tha

Like other Omaha men, I am glad to meet
the people face to face, heart to heart and
hand to hand. W are glad . to have

"The word 'exposed' remind m of th
man who met a holdup artist one gloomy
night at a dark corner and Instead of giv

However, the footpad bested him. He went
through his victim, but found only IS cents.
'Why,' he Inquired of th prostrate
stranger, did you fight like the devil If
that' al! you had? 'I didn't want my finan

"Thl morning." continued the mayor, "I
notified th chief of police to close hla

a different story from that brought back

"Custer and Dawson counties are for

Bryan I can't understand. It is Just like

fact why should Nebraska want a change?
"The farmers were never In better condi

Governor Hughe said Ira rart:
Bryan's Policies a Dancer.
"Perhaps you have wondered why I have
left my own stats temporarily to com out
here to apeak In behalf of the republican
candidate for president. It is because I
think that the welfare of the country de
mands the defeat of Mr. Bryan. To say
that Mr. Bryan' polk-le ar a danger I
not an extravagant statement. They have
been a danger before and the country haa
repudiated them without there being any
exigency that requires a change from tho
republican to th democratic administra
tion. He come out now as previously and
saya th country require him. I ask you.

"We are not a people given to revolu

believes In American institution. Ho
wants, not experiment, wlft visionary
schemes, but a stable, solid form of gov

wil remember, Mr.. Bryan haa a jrreat love

Trust Scheme impracticable1.
"You have already learned that In Inter

"We realise a citlsens of Nebraska that

George L. Sheldon, governor of Nebraska,
and candidate for re-election.
"I will place the records of deeds done
by the republican party beside the promise
of the other parties. Two year ago we
pointed out specific remedies for thf busea

have accomplished something for th peopl

rived any benefit from the old maximum
freight law because th railroads beat
them to the courts. Plsce that beside the
IS per cent common freight bill, the Z-cent
passenger fare bill, the Sibley express bill
and th terminal tsx bill, which have saved
the people between $5,000,000 and tH.000,000.
Every one of those law ar in force and
effect at the present time. Compare that
record with the record of the democratic
party and you will see there Is quite a dif
ference. Let the democrats give you tha
record of what tliry have done end not
