Mr. Cummlna also paid his respects to Mr. Aldrich on account of his avowal of yesterday. Much of the time today was devoted to the consideration of the nation's ftnanoe, but considerable attention was given to the . general merits of a tax on Incomea, which Mr. Cummins defended aa the most rational because the most just, of all taxes. Estimating the total revenues under tho Aldrich-Payne bill at 1360,000.000 and those to be derived from the internal revenue at $2ltf000.000 he predicted that at the end of the fiscal year, Mil, there would be a deficit of not less than $175,000,000.

Uncle Sam Forbids Army to Buy Trust-Made Goods The United States government has laid an Interdict against the purchase for Its own use of goods made by a trust or a company which has been "adjudicated to be a party to an unlawful trust or monopoly." The American Tobaoso company the To bacco trust has been temporarily enjoined on this ground and the commissary of the Department of the Missouri forbidden to buy any ot the smoking or chewing to baocoa made by the trust or Its allied com panies. Omaha wholesalers have bad a communi cation to this effect from Lieutenant Colo nel Eastman, chief commissary. His com munication reads as follows: "I am Informed by tho ooramlsaary gen eral.

YALE MEN CHEER UTTERANCE Short, EpigTamatio Speech Taken as Significant by Crowd. HE CAN'T DEFINE A DEMOCRAT More Troublesome to Determine Than What is Whisky!" REPUBLICANS HAVE TROUBLES a llamorons Vein Chief F.xeratlve Kef era to l.irk of Organised Oppo sition to Dominant Political Organise t ten. NEW HAVEN, Conn., June 30. President Taft paused In the course of an after-dinner speech to 1,800 graduates of Tale, gathered at the annual alumni feast to day, to Issue a serious note of warning to congress, and to the leailers of the re publican party. The president declared that. If the party which placed him In powi r, ami so long had controlled the gov ernment, failed to live up to Its promises and the expectations of the people, It would he relegated to the position of a minority opposition. Mr. Taft had been speaking humorously of recollections of his own college days, which made his sudden change to a serious tone of the lmportunt utterance upon na tional affairs all the more impressive. The president spoke extemporaneously, and his utterances as to the duty of the party ot which he Is nominally the head, seemed the result of a sudden Impulse, rather than of utudied Intent. Mr. Taft made no effort to explain his warning. The Yale men caught his mean Ins, and the significance of tho remarks coming at this time of the tariff debate, however, and they stood and cheered for several minutes. He had been speaking of Secretary of War Dickinson, a democrat, upon whom Yale today conferred an honorary decree. He taunted the demo cracy with the best of good humor as to its present day condition, and this led him Into the declaration as to his own party. Comments on Deniocrury. After paying trlbuteH to others upon whom the university today conferred honorary degrees, the president came down to (Secretary iJlckinson and said: "You went south of the Mason and Dix on's line to get a secretary of war to give a dcuroe to. It Is well that you did, bo cause he is going to build the Panama canal, and other universities will follow where you got In early. "One of the difficulties that has con fronted Brother Dickinson, out in Chicago, where he has a temporary rexldence, was a discussion as to what constituted an or thodox democrat, and whether really ha ought to be counted as a democrat, if he allowed himself to go Into a republican cabinet. Well, when you com to discuss what Is a democrat these days, you are presented with somewhat the same difficulty that I have before me now in giving certain rules for the construction of the pure food law as to what whisky Is. They say there Is 'straight' whisky, and then there Is 'rectified' whisky, and then there Is 'Imitation' whisky. Now, I speak with a good deal of hesitation In saying whether my friend Dickinson Is a 'straight' demo crat, or a 'rectined democrat. I would not dare to say in his presence that he was an Imitation' democrat. 'The truth is. and speaking seriously, I consider myself almost fortunate that I was ab'u to obtain for that Important place In my cabinet a man who repre sented the highest Ideals of the south; who knew no section in his patriotism; whose coming Into the cabinet was significant of I the friendliness of a large element in that southern section, that It Is in my heart to bring closo to the north. Repaltllean Pwrty Troubles. "Vow. my dear friends, In suggesting dlf. ferenees among democrats I am far from Ignoring some difficulties that there are on our own side. I remember In 1904 that Charles Prancls Adams gave what I may call a perfectly good Adam's reason for the election of the democratic candidate over the republic candidate. He said that one of the essentials of a free gov ernment was an ahle, patriotic and effi cient opposition and that as tha demo cratic party had utterly failed In reaching toat Ideal he was in favor of putting the republican party In that place. "Now, I venture to say, that while that may not be the reason which shall move the American people, it is true that If the republican party does not live up to Its promises and what the people expect of It, It will be relegated to a position like that cf his majesty's opposition, and, therefore, I may say by way of caveat, that we have troubles of our own." President's Busy Day. The president had a busy day as the honor guest of the Yale commencement exercises. He attended a meeting of the Yale corporation, spoke at the midday din ner of the alumni, presided over a meet- (Continued on Second Page.) corporation which has been adjudicated to be a part to an unlawful trust and monop oly and to be carrying on business in vio lation of law, nor with any middleman or agent of any such company or concern, where It Is known that such middleman or agent Is acting for sucn unlawful con cern.

Alleged Filibuster Vessel Stopped in New York Harbor NEW YORK. June 30.-The British steamer Ethelwold, a small and harmless looking little steamer lying at the outer edge of the forest of shipping which skirts the south Brooklyn water-front, was neld up by United State customs officers to night on suspicion that the vessel was about to engage In a filibustering expe dition against the little West Indian re public of San Domingo. The order to detain the steamer was re ceived tonight from Assistant Secretary McIIaxg of the Department of Commerce and ' Labor at Washington, and as promptly executed by William Loeb, col lector of the port of New York.

Nearly 600 clalma were heard most of them concerning personal prop' erty, as real estate cases were not taken up unless absolutely necessary. The biggest reduction made was upon the assessment of llayden Bros., which was cut to $t000 from $4UO,000. Another big change was in the case of Mrs. Mary E. McMenemy, who wag. at first taxed upon llti.DGO, but upon showing thut an assessment transfered from Washington county was no lunger valid, her property was valued at $900. The lual case considered was the protest of II. P. Iavltt, representing the Continental Trust company, whose assessment tha board raised from 12,600 to $6,700. Mr. Leavltt asserts that the securities upon which taxes are being levied are owned by clients of the trust company and not by the company itself. The mutter will prob ably be considered. The board, which consisted of members Brunlng, Trulnor, Bedford, Plckard and Kennard of the county commissioners, County Clerk Haverly and County As sessor Shrlver, with Mr. Tralnor as chair man, will not dissolve organisation, but will meet again next Saturday to consider emergency cases and hold together until about August 1. when final reports will be received from the state board.

(From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, July 1 (Special.) Members of the State Ranking board and the secre- ary to the hoard have been temporarily. enjoined from putting Into effect the new banking law enacted by the late legisla ture. The temporary Injunction was Issued by Judge Van Deventer of the circuit court of appeals and Judge T. C!. Munger of tha federal court this morning, following two days' hearing on the application. The" attorneys for the state were given twenty days In when to file briefs In op position to the application to make tha In junction permanent and the attorneys for the plaintiff ten days after that In which to reply. The application for the Injunction was made by fifty-two state and private banks, represented by John L. Webster and W. V Allen, while the state was represented by Judge I. L. Albert of Columbus and C. O. Whedon of Lincoln. Attorney General Thompson advised with the latter two, but made no oral argument In the case. Examiners Majr Lose Jobs. The new banking law which has been en joined created a banking board composed of the governor, the auditor and ths at torney general, the governor taking the . place of the state treasurer, who was f membeY of the bosrd under the old lsw, ITpder the new law the governor was given power to make all the appointment and he had already appointed Samuel Patter son, secretary, and seven examiners. These persoos would have assumed their offices on the morning of July S had the Injunc tion been denied. As It la the old secre tary, E. Royse, and the present examiners will hold on until the esse Is settled. In addition to Samuel Patterson, who, at least for the present, will not take his job, the following examiners appointed by Governor Shallenberger will not connect with the state pay boa unless the perma nent Injunction Is denied: Charles R.

Were ' reappointed by Governor Bhallenberr un der the new law, but they will not be affected. Treasurer Brian Is opposed to giving a place to any examiner who ac cepted an appointment at the hands of the democratic governor, but the attorney general and the state auditor have no In tention of disturbing the examiners with two commissions. The legislature which enacted the new law also appropriated $3,000 a year, or $1,000 Increase, for the secretary to the board, and this salary will be drawn by Mr. Royse, pending the final disposition of the suit and the salary of the chief clerk was Increased $300 and the satary of ths stenog rapher $200 a year. History of New Law. The new law was the result of weeks of toll by a special committee composed of members of the senate and house of the last legislature. After working over the bill for some weeks, ths committee asked for permission to employ counsel to draft the measure, Mr. Bryan having left ths state without doing It, and I. L. Albert of Columbus waa employed. Judge Albert drafted a bill which in all particulars did not suit the committee, and tha Albert draft was materially changed. When the attorney general was Consulted he advised that the guaranty section pro vide that the banks may either give a guaranty bond or contribute to a fund for the guaranty of ths desoslla. This advice was Ignored and the committee drafted its compulsory guaranty section, which was upon the one point mora than any other that the opponents of tha law made their most objections. At this lime there are 664 banks char tered to do business In Nebraska as state institutions, of which fifty-three have been chartered sine January 1. Fourteen banks were chartered In June.
