That ha has stirred wp the- republican
ranks m the states of the middle west to

the Hughes party through that state and
assured the New York governor that the

Beverlde to the northwest had thoroughly
aroused the voters of, that section to the
Issues of the campaign. A genuine western

whistles for ten minutes. The crowd In the

exclamations of "the next governor of
New York." and "president In 191?."

Stat 2S.OOO for Taft.
"The slate of Nebraska will give Mr.
Taft a majority of at least 26,000," said
Frank Currle of Gordon( former state rep
resentative, who Is at the Merchants hotel.
Mr. Currle had Just arrived with a train
loud of cattle and has been traveling over
the state extensively. While enroute to
Omaha with hia cattle he took a poll Of
three trains headed for Omaha and the re
sult showed how the cattlemen of the
north w stern part of the state feel toward
"On our train were fifteen ranchmen and
two tramps, and we did not poll the train
crew. The vote was fourteen for Taft and
three for Bryan, the two tramps voting for
Bryan. On the next train thei were seven
people, counting the train crew, and hire
Mr. Bryan got two votes, one brakeman
voting for Bryan. On the TTiIrd train Taft
got all the votes but one. That does not
took as though the people in the state
wanted any change In conditions.
"In all my travels over that section of
the state I have been able to find but one
republican who says he Is going to vote
for Bryan. Another little incident show
the way the wind Is blowing. Recently at
dinner twelve voters were seated. . Eight
had voted for Bryan In 1H96 and four of the
twelve had voted for lilm In 19J0, but each
and every one uei lared that th s year they

PAN FRA.NCI8CO, Oct. fc-The nine
teenth, Transmlsslsslppl Commercial con
gress, with a thousand or more delegates
form the western half of the United States
attending, all of them men of high position
In the affairs of the nation and of their
respective states, began Its five day's delib
eration here today with a display of enthu
siasm by the delegates that augured well
for a successful and Interesting session.
Temporarry Chairman J. B. Case, of
Ab'lne, Kan., called the delegates to order
and In his opening remarks, pointed the
way for many prominent speakers who are
to follow him, . dwelling, at some length
on the vast work that there Is to be done
In tho west In the conservation of natural
resources and expansion of present Indus
tries to a far wider scope than has yet
been attempted. i
Among the delegates were the represen
tatives of the thlrty-sli states, four ter
ritories and six foreign countries, while the
national government was also represented
In the person of W. R. Wheeler, assistant
secretary of commerce and labor..
j no opening- session was purely one oi
organisation. After committees to attend to
the permanent organization were appointed
the congress adjourned In order that the
delegates and their friends might partici
pate In an excursion . about the famous
San' Francisco harbor.
The political end of the congress Is In a
state of ferment and It Is Impossible to
say who will be chosen as permanent offi
cers. Colorado has sent a strong deloga
tlon and Its members are' losing no oppor
tunity to boost their home state for the
next gathering .place of the congress and
Thomas F. Walsh of Colorado for presl
dent. Texas has a candidate for that office
Colonel Iko T. Pryor of San Antonio
Colonel Fred W. Fleming of Missouri Is
also strongly supported.
Omaha Is being spoken of very favorably
as the place of the next gathering and
Colonel Fleming Is urging the selection of
that city, confident of strong support from
many of the delegates. Great Interest la
being taken by the members of the con
gress In the project bf . securing federal
appropriation for the straightening out of
the Missouri river, and this will help
Omaha's effort to get tho next session.
The report that Galveston, Tex., was In
the field for the meeting was denied today
by Senator Harris of that city, who said
thfct Galveston, was not In condition to
seek : the honor. This leaves the' matter
practically between Denver and Omaha.
OMAHA MAKES NO EFFORT FOR IT
Sends No Delegates to San Fmnclsco
to Land Convention.
Though officers of the Transmlsslsslppl
Commercial congress and E. H. Harrlman
dangled the next meeting of the Congress
In the face of Omaha and invited the
Commercial club and other organlxatlons
to send delegates to the meeting In San
Francisco and capture the prise, not a
single delegate, was named, and so far as
known not an Omahan is present to ask
tor the largest convention which can come
to Omaha next year. But Omaha seems to
be popular 'regardless of the" absence of
delegates." V. ? J - '
J. M. Guild, commissioner of the .Com-,
mjerctal club, .was named by Governor
Sheldon as one of the delegates from Ne
braska, but Important business the 'wool
committee made it Impossible for Mr.
Guild to go. The committee on conven

or the Transmlsslsslppl congress and
Henry T. Clarke' has gone to Chicago to
attend a deep waterways meeting, while .
J. McVann, secretary of the Grain ex
change, Is In Kansas City on an important
grain rate hearing. The Omaha Real Es
tate exchange is a member of the congress,
but the matter of sending delegates was
never brought up.
But despite the fact that Omaha has
no delegates present the city seems In a
position ta, secure the next meeting, as the
out-of-town friends are fighting valiantly.

Mr. Wright then dwelt upon the benefit
of gatherings of the present kld, saying:
"Thar are mlghtly few original Ideas In

your sleeve which you- think original, re

bottled up. Pay back the fellow you get
It from by giving it to some one else.
"I wish to emphasis a subject upon
which th mayor dwelt. It is that the
bone and sinew, the strength, muscle and
blood of the country lies In th rural dls
trlcta. Nothing will tena more strongly

Windsor Responds to Speeches.
H. H. Windsor, editor of the official pub
lication of th carriers, then rose to answer
the greetings. His first words were lost
because of calls from the back of th room
urging him to tak th stage:
"w want to iook at you again," was
the demand. The speaker compiled.
"I used to live In Omaha," said he, "but
It was long ago and the Omaha of the
vintage of 1883 ia a different from that of
th present aa two things could very well
be. In those day th sidewalks wer high
above th streets and asevndad by flight
of step when there war any sidewalks.
When a man had walked three blocks he
had climbed enough stair to hav reached
the top ot th Washington monument and
most of the Inhabitants wer knersprung.

Mason of Illinol this morning that be had
heard Omaha was so hilly that all th glii
had grown hunchbacked climbing -, them.

Mr. Windsor concluded In a serious vein,
extolling the work 4t the association and
urging the heartteet Interest In the program
of tho convention.
Cheers for slllnan.
Superintendent Spillmah, the last speaker
of the session was arretted with cheers
whert he. took hr flatfnrm and Ihe en
thusiasm seemoA genuine rather than a
matter of policy, VI f. any of you have any
doubt that I am glad to be here," he said.
I wish you would Just step up after I am
through and shake hands with me." The
spirit and Inspiration which I derive from
these conventions of purs Is strong enough
to last me clear through, the year. I am
glad to be In a weetern, city. I was born
a westerner, reared a westerner and shall
always be a westernor In spirit. So It is
not necessary to welcome jno as a stranger
to the greatness and enterprise of Omaha.
"I bring to you the. greetings and best
wishes for the success of this convention
of Postmaster General . Meyer. He la
deeply Interested In our work not only
because he Is our chief, but because he Is
a business man and Interested In a work
so great as this for -its own sake."
Superintendent fplllman. referring to this
and future oonyeptlong of the association,
urged that the program makers should not
attempt to spread over, .too much ground
In selection of, topics. He also urged tho
delegates that, i'evejy nornlng when each
starts out on his route., let him remember
that there are 39.400 other men and women
similarly engaged. that;.you are serving
no less than 18,000.000 people, 'that you are
costing the government annually $35,873,000
and that It I up to each and every one of
us to give In .return for the expenditure of
this great sum as good, at efficient service
as we can." -.

of Indiana at the' wfternoon session, "we

Miss Funkhotiser rose, blushing. "Mr,
Maxwell," she said," '"has been trying that
sort of talk all the way from Indiana, but
I'll get even with' tilm."
(A voice.) "Marry "him." '
When the delegates had ceased howling,
Miss Funkhouser 'could "be observed blush

This paraphrase of the- "Waiting at the

The entire nfternoon session was a merry
one. Delegates had gathered expecting to
hear a series of addresses by Congressman
Hitchcock, Senator Burkett and Brown
and others, but none- of these toed the
mark. Therefore-, President Lindsay
brought up the question of the evening's
program. ' "
This put the delegates between 'The
Devil" at the- Bnrwood and Governor
Hughes. The question was discussed from
Delegate Rice of Texas thought that "we
shall rarely have a'clianV to see or hear
Governor Hughes, but his Satanio majesty
we can meet on our routes any day."

After this a little experience meeting was
on. Mrs. comto or Indiana told the del
gates' how' she had tried an auto for six
weeks. "I finished on Urn twice," taJd
Mrs. Ruth Ken yon of Nebraska and Mls
Alice Gummerre of Cfeston, la., narrated
their experiences briefly. Miss Gummerre

W. T. Gummerre also rides a route out
of the' Union county' town and likewise an
uncle, Alvarado Gummerre. Emulating the
example of these a cousin, Arden Gum

Rural Free delivery force.
A 'letter from President Roosevelt was
read to th delegates at the afternoon
session by W. D. Brown of Washington to
whom It had been written, as follows:
THE WHITE HOUSE. Washington. Oct.
1 My dear Mr. Brown: Will you convey
to the members of . the National Rural

PORTLAND AFTER THE NEXT ONE
Oregon City Send Hostlers to Land
If Portland, Ore., does not land the next
convention' It will not be because the city
doesn't deserve It, for It Is hustling hard.
Every delegate to the convention who could
be reached was led up to headquarters of
the delegation In the lobby of the Rome
and after registering given a handsome big
photograph of Mount Hood.
The secretary bf the delegation, John H.
Golns, has brought with him letters of in
troduction to . nearly everyone Portland
friends knew who could be ot use to him,
and beside meeting these people, Golns has
contrived to see about all the delegates. He
also put up a great sixty-foot banner In
the convention hall: ''Oregon Rural Car
rier Stand for Better Roads, Higher Ed
ucation and Greater Oregon."
"Our cause Is making great headway, so
far as I ran tell," said he. "We hav many
unsolicited pledges already and are sure of
more. It the next convention will com to
Portland we'll treat the delegates as well
as well as Omaha Is treating us now."
"How la Governor Haskell's state?" said
a Kansan to Secretary Mltsner of th OkU
hom delegation. "Oklahoma," said Mlts
ner with emphasis on th nam of th
state, "Oklahoma is all right, but It Is not
Haskell's any longer."
"We can beat Nebraska In only one r-
spoct," said National Treasurer Williams of
Ksnfrew, Pa. "We hav better roads than
any wsstern state, I think. But Mi hold

good enough to see you," said a voice.
'Well, that the kind of friend I like
'How about labor unions?" he was asked.
'I have done more for union labor than
Mr. Gompers," was the quick retort, and
then Mr. Taft explained that the decisions
he had rendered as a Judge on the bench
and which were now being represented as
placing him against unionism were really
being used at present In the courts by
union labor as the basis of their rights.
He added that he should make this the
feature of his speeoh to th employe of

Another query was about campaign con
tributions. The reply was that so far as
he knew no contributions had been accepted
that would have th slightest tendency to
embarrass any one.
"Any gentlemen her who desires to

abided, "may regard this as the time and
After the three speeches had been made
Mr. Taft was escorted to the hotel from
wher he reviewed the grolsque parade of
the "Ve'led Prophets," whose carnival haa
the city firmly In Its grasp. The ball of
the Veiled Phophet, which Is the great
society event of the carnival, wa made
decldudly more popular tonight by the an
nouncement that the candidate would be
there fdr an hour.-
Mr. Taft viBlted the ball for a few min

First Speech nt Moberlr.
Before reaching St. Louie Mr. Taft had
a strenuous day In a number of Mlssoourl
towt.s. His work yesterday left him at
Macon. With a night run he reached
Moberly before 8 o'clock yesterday. The
program contemplated a speech In the local
theater and the reception rommltte and
band were eager to perform their part
before the hour for the meeting arrived,
but they were not alone In their eagerness
for the hall was packed when the candl
ito , arrived. . Good times had resulted
from, .protection. , and . tad times from a
democratic tariff was the' burden df the
Tafl speech at Moberly and throughout
Mexico had a number of disappointed
cltlxens, as by an error of the local com
mlttee the opera house had been packed
with an audience, whereby the the plans
of the railroad called for but a five
minute stop. It was deemed best not
to disturb the schedule of the train, and
Senator Warren, after Introducing th
candidate, told him that he was In Au
drlan county, tho home of the Missouri
mocking bird the mule. As governor of
the Philippines and secretary of war,
Mr. Taft told his hearers, he had been
one of the county's best customers. He
had bought many mule there for the
government When he asked If any ar
guments were needed to convince them of
their own prosperity there were many
negative expresalona. He was cheered
by a large class of girl In academic cos
tume and paid his compliments to them
in a way which also pleased the crowd.
Just as the train was moving out, the
opera house audience came running down
the street, but many were too late to
get even a glimpse of the candidate, who
stood on the back platform of hla car
waving farewells. Montgomery and War
ren ton turned out large crowds and heard

At St. Charles the candidate was taken
uptown to the balcony of the court house.
from where lie addressed thousands. HI
speech was full of expressions of optim
ism regarding Missouri, which he
said he firmly . believed was going to
show" somebody that It was not going
to be a stranger in the republican ranks.
He made it clear that he was not opposed
to the aggregation of capital for the pur
pose of effecting economies. Such aggre
gation, he said, "Is to be commended
rather than condemned. It ia not incon
sistent with competition and la an aid to
our material progress."
"When, however," he continued, "it Is
accompanied with an attempt to monopolise
business and to control prices. It then be
comes Illegal and the evil must be stamped
out. This should be done by greater su
pervision of the business of such corpbra
tlpon, by federal control through the de
partment of Commerce and Labor; by a
series of reports each month, by constant
Inspection by government agents and by
Immediate and persistent prosecution of
all violations of law.
"The function of the next administra
tion," he added, "Is not to be spectacular
In the enactment of great statutes laying
down new codes of morals, or asserting a
new standard of business integrity, but Its
work lies In the details of furnishing men
and machinery to aid In the active work
of making the supervision of the transac
tions so close, so careful, so constant, that
the men engaged In It may know promptly
when they are transgressing the line of
lawful business limitations, and may be
brought up standing whenever this occurs,
and may be prosecuted wher th viola
tions of law are flagrant and defiant and
promptly restrained and penalised."
Bryan' Rentedle Dlsenaaod.
Turning his attention to the remedies
proposed by Mr, Bryan, Mr. Taft said
that the' Nebraskan proposed two: First,
put all the trust made articles on the free
list; second, to Impose a license for all
corporations who mak 3 per cent of ary
product in th United Stats.
As to th first, he aald: "To put trust
snade article on th free list would not
only destroy the business of th ' so-called
monopolies and trusts, and only threw out
of employment million of worklngmen en
