SPRIXGFIELD, HI., March Ui.-Speaker
Cannon, In a letter at a meeting of repub
lican editors here today renewed his at
tack on the "Insurgents" and declared that
all the pledge, of the platform would be
kept by the republican party If It has the
continued support of the people,
The letter Is addrea.ed to Oeorge C. Ran
kin, president of the Illinois Republican
Editorial association, Springfield, and In
part la as follows:
"Dear Mr. Rankin: I have your favor of
the 8th instant. Informing me that there
will be a meeting of the Illinois Republican
Editorial association at Springfield, March
15, and Inviting me to give you a word of
encouragement and suggestion.
"I thank you for the courtesy, but I feel
there Is no occasion for me either to advise
or encourage the republican editors of
Illinois who have been a. potent factor In
tho politics of the state since before the
republican party was formally organised.
"The republican party has not discarded
any cf Its principles nor has It sought new
issues simply for the purpose of catching
the crowd ever ready for novelties. Where
It has added a new plank to Its platform,
It has kept Its pledges. Repub
lican majorities In house and senate co
operating with the president placed the
Payne tariff law on the statute books
August 5, or within less than five months
from the beginning of the session.
Defends Payne Law.
"Within six months after Its enactment
that law has demonstrated that It Is the
best revenue producer as wen as the most
scientific adjustment of protective duties
we have ever had, fully Justifying the pres
ident's declaration that It Is the best tariff
law ever enactd. The republican party did
not promise a free trade tariff, not a down
ward revision, but a revision in which It
should recognlx. the principle of pro
tection with the minimum and maximum
rates to preserve without excessive duties
that security against foreign competition
to which American manufacturers and pro
ducers are entitled; and also to maintain
the high standard of living of the wage
earners of this country who are the most
direct beneficiaries of the protective sys
tem. "In carrying out that pledge of the plat
form we fcnacted a tariff in which there
were 664 decreases from the Dlngley law,
220 Increases and 1.150 Items of the dutiable
list unchanged. The articles on which such
were decreased represented $6,000,000,000
worth of consumption, while those In
creased had a consumption value of lees
than $1,000,000,000. The Increases were on
luxuries and the decreases on necessities,
and In the first six months of the law
more than 51 per cent of all Importations
were free of duty, the largest percentage
Of free Imports we have ever had under
any tariff, not even excepting 'the Walker
tariff of 1846, which was called a free
trade tariff. The Increase of revenues haa
been nearly $60,900,000 In six months, mak
ing the Payne .law the beat revenue pro
curer we have ever had, and that Is X
prime necessity In our increased expendi
ture for the greater Increase of the
Land. Work of Coogrei.
"The republican party has carried out
Its tariff pledgee in a way to Justify the
president's pride In that enactment and It
will carry out Its pledges aa it has time
for discussion and agreement on the form
of the wise legislation to meet those
"The present congress In regular session
has been more energetic and more success
ful In carrying forward the work before It
than haa any other congress In recent
"The committees have been giving most
careful study to the number of bills to
amend the Interstate commerce law and
other legislation promised In the republican
platform and I think I can safely predict
that ' this legislation will b kept by the
party If It haa the continued support of
the people.' No party has ever been able
to accomplish all It promised tn one ses
sion of congress and such an accomplish
ment has never been expected.
"It la the function of the republican edi
tors to' keep the people Informed as to
the work accomplished, that they may not
be misled by demagogues, whose function
la to complain and create dissatisfaction;
and the republican editors of Illinois can be
of material assistance In presenting the
truth to meet friction, that the people may
fairly judge aa to the fidelity of the prea
ent administration to the principles of the
party that gave It power, to the end that
the president may continue to have the
support of the legislative department In
working out the policies of the republican
Prr.ldeat A.ka Support.
WASHINGTON, March liPresldent
Taft sent to the convention of republican
editors at Springfield, III., today a tele
gram In which he expressed the hope that
the editorial association would stand by
the republican congress and th adminis
tration in Its attitude toward the tariff and
Other legislation. The telegram addressed
to Oeorge Rankin, president of the Illinois
Republican Editorial association, was as
"Sincerely hope that you will have a full
meeting; that there will be harmony, and
that the republican editors of Illinois will
stand by the action of the republican con
gress and republican administration In ref
er, nc. to the tariff bill and other pro
gressive leglHUUon. The expression of a
meeting like the one you have called, aris
ing from a normal, sane and patriotic re
publican attitude, will have much Influence
for good In Illinois and th rest of the
country. WILLIAM II. TAFT."

Justice Lurton said he wanted to aak
Mr. Milburn just what his claim was.
"It was a body of common owners from

man might sell his Interest to another mfcn
and the court so finds It," Mr. Milburn re
plied. Mr. Kellogg told the court that to meet
the purposes of the Standard Oil two bal

credited with a receipt of $22,000,000. He
said the employe never got It and that the

That's 'What Sam Safer Woald Like

Did th Mabray gang hav a staff hyp
notist? Sam Sutor, a mlk from Cass Lake,
Minn., says he was put Into a trance that
lasted for two day when they operated
on him for the removal of his pocket book.
The mental anesthesia was administered,
says Sutor, beyond a doubt, and he cannot
flKure out just which one of the steerers
did it. ;
"I know I was hypnotized, that Is all
there was to it," declared Sutor. "There
is nothing else could explain It. I just
went ahead and did what they' told me to.
I Just gave them my money." ,
Sutor was firmly convinced that there
was something mystic In the working of

his cigar and dropped the match on the
floor near a gasoline can which wa leaking
and an explosion followed. In a minute
th entire Inside of the building was a
roaring mass of flames. Mrs. Harben es
caped by the baok door, while Mr. Harben
and the man went out th front way.
It waa only a few minute after the
alarm squnded till the fire department was
on the ground with two lines of hose. The
fire wa shooting up over the' back and
curling over adjacent buildings, and a
dense volume of smoke was pouring out
of the front. So efficient waa the fir de

under control and In ten It waa out.
Mr. Harben bought the building last year
and rebuilt it. The loss on the building is
