(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Nov. .-(Spclal.) Al
ready the politicians of Iowa are looking-forward
to the changes which will
follow ss the result of the recent elec
tion. The first step will be In less than
thrte weeks, when the legislature will
lect Governor Cummins to the senate
ami. he will resign to be succeeded as
governor by Warren Garst, the present
lieutenant governor. The change will
probably be effected all on one day. No
vember 24, and Governor Cummins will
become senator December 7, when con
gress opens. It Is now proposed here In
Ues Moines to have something of a cele
bration on the day of the meeting of the
legislature, when there will be rejoicing
over the great victory for Taft and the
entire republican ticket as well an re
joicing over the reuniting of the repub
lican party In the matter of the sena
In view of the fact that all the repub
licans elected to the legislature are un
der pledge to elect Cummins senator
there can now be no hitch In the pro
gram. If the result had been close there
might have been some controversy, but
the majority of 40,000 or over has set
tled the matter.
Never before In the history of the state
has there been such delay In securing
tho returns. Even this afternoon some
county auditors reported they could not
give, complete returns from their coun
ties. The ballot was much longer than
usual and was much complicated.
No change was made today In regard
to the news from the congressional dis
tricts. The only democrat elected was
W. ' D. Jamleson In the Eighth. N. E.
Kendall, in the Sixth, had only 232 ma
jority In the district over Hamilton, dem
ocrat. Chairman Franke of the republican
state committee had really estimated tne
Iowa : majority for Taft at 60,000 before
election, but had refused to give out any
estimate for publication. The estimate
was not far wrong, as the ote for Taft
will probably show a little' more than
the figure given, with slightly less for
the state, but even tonight the chairman
did, not have complete returns.
The legislature which meets In De Moines
norft January will be more strongly repub-

TAFT SOUNDS THE KEYNOTE
Next President Outline! Principles
Which Will Guide Him
REAL BASIS FOR PROSPERITY
livery Hualneaa Enterprise Within
the gotes May Proceed With
oat Fear of Interference.
CINCINNATI. Nov. ..Speaking to the
Cliicinmttl Commercial club, of which he
has been a member for fifteen years, Wil
liam Howard Taft last night brought every
member of the club to his feet In an ad
dress sounding the keynote of prosperity
for the country for the next four years.
"Every business man who Is obeying the
law may go ahvad with all the energy In
his ' possession; every enterprise which Is
within the statutes may proceed without
fear of interference from the administra
tion, when acting legally; but all Interests
within the Jurisdiction of the federal gov.
ernment may expect a rigid enforcement
of the laws against dishonest methods,"
was the keynote of what Mr. Taft said.
The speech which Mr. Taft delivered here
tonight created a profound sensation
among the substantial business men of the
city who are members of the club which
gave him the dinner, arranged long before
the result of the election could bo known,
and they arose as one man to the senti
ments he expressed. The speech was pre
ceded by words of friendship and neigh
borly felicitation on the part of the dls
tingulshed guest which brought out the
human aide of the next president in a man
ner most touching and responded to with
the greatest enthusiasm.
Human Interest Side.
Judge Taft told In a way of which no
one had written of, the human side of his
campaign. "I have been the subject of a
coterie of bosses," he declared with the
greatest of good humor, "the duty to which
left me nothing to do but to respond to
the calls of the populace, and If I did not
respond after one minute, the crowd made
a mighty shout for 'Hurrah for Bryan.' "
in beginning Mr. Taft admitted that It
might not be so easy to smile tonight If the
telegrams of congratulation which passed
between Lincoln and Cincinnati today had
bevn originated in this city- instead of
the home of the great commoner.
"Seriously," he declared, "the Indications
are already apparent and the hopes which
I entertain are that the business communf
tles and the Investors of both foreign na
tions and our own people will take heart
In carrying out the great enterprises which
must be carried to a determination If tho
country is to reach Its full meed of pros
perity. "Business men are to be shown the lines
of legality and are to be directed in keep
ing within those lines, which have been
emphasized during the last four years.
Business men shall know that they are to
conform to the laws upon the statute
books, and that no favors are to be ex
pected for those who break the laws.
"This shall be made so plain that the
men who conduct a legitimate business
may understand that the government la
back of them, and does not intend to do
anything to interfere with their legitimate
Win Encourage Honest Progress.
After the applause which met the declar
ation had subsided. Judge Taft added:
"It Is a question of the definite knowl
edge of the statutes and of their clear un
derstanding which shall make the honest
progress of our business possible, and that
in my nellef, all that Is necessary to
make that progress substantial and en.
Judge Taft apologized for directing his
words Into such a serious discussion.
"I know the difficulties that will arise In
my new care," Judge Taft added, "and I
know that questions will arise that I don't
know of now and that times wl 1 come when
many of my friends here will shake their
heads and say 'Poor Bill,' but all I ask Is
for suspension of Judgment until the situa
tion my be understood. The administration's
decisions will rest upon the principles of
sound and honest business policies which I
Clnb Immensely Pleased.
What Judge Tart said preceding his plain
business talk pleased the club Immensely.
He told of the many policies which had
been Indicated to him by the local commit
teemen during the campaign, and then of
the whole object of being president, which
was to enforce the laws and give every
honest endeavor a fair opportunity and to
prosecute with vigor every apparent effort
to evade the laws and effect prosperity by
dlshonost business methods.
The club, of which Judge Taft was the
guest tonight was also his host at a dinner
which he attended Just before leaving to be
come governor of tho Philippines. The club
entertained tonight members of similar or
ganizations from Chicago, St. Louis and
Iowa Nana Notes.

REPORT ON JPUBLIC LANDS
Commissioner llecoininenda With
drawal of Certain Arid Areas
WASHINGTON, Nov. .-ln his annual
report for the last fiscal year, Commis
sioner Fred Dennett of the general land
office recommends the withdrawal from
entry of all public lands which may be Ir
rigated which are not now capable of be
ing utilized for homes. On that point he
"The proper step to take would be to
clusslfy the lands of the United States In
order to ascertain what public lands (which
In their present condition are Incapable of
affording a home) are susceptible of Irri
gation to a cost even much greater than
that now entertained by the reclamation
service, and to withdraw these lands from
entry awaiting the time when they can, by
Irrigation, be made homes under the Carey
"It will be only a comparatively few
years before an Irrigation project which
will cost as high as 1200 an acre will be
considered practicable, the market for the
land Justifying such an expenditure.
"No one can be hurt by such a with
drawal, for desert land which can not be
reclaimed by thel individual effort of a
settler can never become a home until
water Is brought to It by the government,
state or by the expenditure of vast sums
by private enterprise."
Mr. Dennett says the land office has rec
ommended thst suits be brought on timber
land claims aggregating 1377,610.
