"What 1h a republican?" was the first
subject that Vice President Sherman
dealt with after he had paid a glowing;
tribute to President Taft, as the leader of
The speaker recalled that Congressman
Champ Clark recently said the devil him
self could not answer that question.
"This question may stump the devil, who
may naturally be assumed to be a demo
crat." said Mr. Sherman, "but Til venture
the assertion that every 12-year-old boy
In Wisconsin can answer It and that the
simple, but comprehensive reply would be;
'A nmn who votes the republican ticket
at the polls, and votes for republican
measures in congress.' "
The vice president asked that If this
was the correct answer. If the converse
was not true "that a man who does not
vote the republican ticket, who does not
support republican measures and repub
lican policies is not a republican?"
The growth of tho republican party
formed the theme for the speaker as he
continued his address. Me had gotten
down to Lincoln's time, when he returned
to the question of Insurgency for a mo
ment. "Four j ftrtrt- later," - said he, "we were
in the throes- of u civil war and Lincoln
was again 'ed 'for, this because they
believed that - the t'nlon should be pre
served and ftliat slavery must cease. In
that, year we find- tlra beginning of lnsur
ganVy, " A : saull band attempted ttu pre
vent the remimluitUuu of Lincoln. The
movement was .ma successful and he ob
tallied 21-' out Of VA electoral votes.". .
"Tho vice president spoke of Insurgency
near, when he recalled that "In .1872 a new
Insuigenry had arhen with the cry of
"Anything to beat Grant.
The i, when ho .had said a w ord of praise
for Uoosevelt and Tuft, at the conclusion
of this review of paity history, the vice
president once agal.t ireturned to the sub
ject of insurgeny. ".'"or over fifty years the
republican party 'taw been sieiidify increas
ing In numbers and gaining l.i power," said
he, "seeming to grow stronger after every
insurgent movement, and In each Instance
gaining more numbers than we lost. In 1884
another element of Insurgency arose and
JVmed to be temporarily successful, though
tts duration was short and without result.
In 1KK6 another-kind of-insurgent came to
the front in the guise of the so-called 'sil
ver republicans.' who manfully und cour
ageously, when they saw they could not
endorse the republican platform and the
republican candidates of that year, left the
national convention In a body. The place
of every one, however, who left the party
that year was filled by at least two so
called gold democrat', most of whom have
eince remained with the party of financial
(irtcgrity and stability.
"We uro now confronted again by In
surgency in tho party, though it Is by no
means a united movement, as it may be
jk iild that there ure nearly as many kinds
Ot Insurgency as there are insurgents. I
believe, however, tiiat the strength of the
republican party will In no way be weak
ened, but that It will go to the polls next
J November and record a victory unit again

The vice president then reviewed tho ac-
compllshments of the republican party,
j "It Is not a matter of surprise, how-
ever," said he at the conclusion of this re
.' vifw, "Hint in a country of such vast do-
main, such wide territorial boundary and
: with such diversified interests as can be

Late Returns Indicate Nomination of
Independent Candidate by
flOVK FALLS, ft. !., June S.-Reports
from yesterday's primary election continue
lo come In very slowly, The nomination of
George W. Kgaa at Sioux Kails, independ
ent republican, candidate for governor, is
conceded by those who are keeping in
cloe touch with the returns from the Btate.
His supporters say he will have a plural
ity over the next highest candidate of not
less tlun 6.000. The latest reports show
be now has a lend of about 3,000, which
doubtless cannot be overcome.
. Kgan surprised both the stalwarts and
progressives by the manner his vote "kept
up throughout tho state. Instead of .run
ning strong only In the part of the state
where he lives he secured a heavy vote in
the most remote precincts and in territory
where It was believed he would receive only
a scattering vote he secured as heavy a
proportionate vote as in the territory which
was regarded safe for him.
The outcome of the primaries on con;
gressmen is yet In doubt. The . reports on
this at too meager to form an opinion on
who lias won out. The progressives claim
their two candidates for congressman have
been nominated, while the stalwarts are
still how ful that Congressmen Martin and
j Hui ke have pulled through.
P1EKRE, S. U June .-(Speclal Tele
gram.) The situation now appears to be
that it will require the official vote to
show whether Vessey or gan la nomi
nated for governor, with returns from
towns showing a lead for gan. Burke and
Martin undoubtedly are In the lead for
congress, with Burke securing the heaviest
vote. No one appears to have secured
figures on the rest of the state ticket and
it will probably take the count to decide
who are the winners.
In this circuit Hughes, progressive, is
winner for Judge and the stalwarts have
carried the senatorial district. The legis
lative district la so close as to require a
count. So far as known Stanley county
has changed from stalwart to progressive,
but many precincts have not been heard
MITCHKLL, A 1)., June 8.-( Special
Telegram.) The vote on governor in this
county is Egan. M.'l; Vessey, 40K; Elrod.
lUi; with two townships to hear from. For
congress. Burke, 6M; Martin, 635; Bchroeder,
tMO; Thorson 446. The progressive republi
cans nominated Henry Swindler for state
senator and G. H. Helgerson and Charles
Horeson for state representatives.
ABERDEEN, 8. I)., June 8. Late this
afternoon the stalwart headquarters here
had not conceded Kuan's nomination for
governor. Returns from counties west of
the river show unexpectedly large gains
for the stalwarts, but returns are as yet
too fragmentary to base accurate esti
mates, and the stalwart headquarters,
while conceding Egan is in the lead so
far a returns have yet been received, have
hopes that Elrod may succeed in oyer
coming that ifcad. .
The stalwarts claim the congressional
and state ticket, except governor.
HURON, S. !., June 8. Few additional
returns do- not materially change last
night's figures. Chairman Richards be
lieves later returns will insure Vesscy's
nomination. Twenty-six out of 53 counties
give Vessey 12.164; Elrod 10,162; Egan 12.6W.
Schroeder and Thorson for congress were
about even, both leading Martin and
Burke by small margins.
BROOKINGS, S. D., June 8. In Brook
ings county 21 precincts out of 30 elected
Thorson, Insurgent, and Harklri, stalwart,
for congress In yesterday's primary. The
legislative ticket elected is insurgent.

WASHINGTON", June S.-Afier a call at
the White House today with Senator Aid-
rich to learn the president's views, Senator
Elkins announced that he would oalfc. a
meeting of the conferees on ue. raflroad
bill tomorrow. ' .
The president indicated that there were
two changes he would like to see made in
the bill In addition to the elimination of
the sixty-day clause In the paragraph
giving the Interstate Commerce commis
sion the right to investigate and suspend
new rates. ' v
Mr. Taft is anxious that the house pro
vision for a supervision of the Issuance of
stocks and bonds by the railroad com
panies be accepted by the senate. He
regarded this feature as one of the pledges
of the party.
Th president believes that the ten months
allowed the Interstate Commerce commis
sion in which to Investigate rates before
acting on them Is entirely too long. He
thinks six months would be a better period.
It is expected that the first meeting of
the tonferees will be held tomorrow.
"We have sent for our hot weather
clothes and are prepared to stay here until
September," declared Senators Dolilver,
La Follette-and Brlstow, when asked
whether the action of the house in sending
the bill to conference meant delay in final
action on the measure.
Hallroads Cancel Hates.
In consonance with the verbal arrange
ment with President Taft the companies
included in the western trunk lines have
begun the filing of tariffs with the Inter
state Commerce commission In cancellation
of the tariffs which they filed to be effec
tive on June 1.
Although the Injunction which the gov
ernment obtained applies only to the rates
made by the Western Trunk Line associa
tion, under the agreement mud with the
president It will be Incumbent on the eastern-
lines tt cancel the advances which
they made to be effective about July 1.
Mr. Hosmer of Chicago, aa agent bf the
Western Trunk Line association, today
filed with the commission a tariff cancel
ing the advance in tates on wool from St.
Paul and Minneapolis to New York and
Boston. The advance was 10 cents per 100
pounds, to be effective July 1. These rates
were not affected by the injunction ob
tained by the government.

this evening for the first
time Carroll was conceded nominated for a
second term by his opponents, though it
seems certain that the governor cannot
have more than 2,000 or 8,000 majority. The
Carroll committee claims a majority of
12.000 and that the regulars will control the
state convention. The latter was almon
lost sight of. but not until the county con
ventions are held will it be known who has
, The reports on other state officers were
almost entirely neglected. It is regarded
as certain that D. J. Palmer Is renomi
nated for railroad commissioner, but re
turns on others are Insufficient to Indicate
It seems certain that Senator Cosson
has led for attorney general with Spoaker
Feeley a close second.
Garrett has the lead for clerk of the
supreme court, but the superintendent of
public Instruction goes Into the state con-
The only consolation the insurgents have
In the whole matter is their success in
defeating Captain ull by a large majolrty.
Other Contests Indefinite.
On the other state contests, nothing defi
nite, even sufficient to make an estimate
on, has been received. There were five
congressional fights in the state this spring
and Indications early this morning are
that In these fights the stand-patters have
held their own.
In the First district, C. A. Kennedy,
stand-patter, defeated Smith Brookhart, in
surgent, by a plurality of 3,000 votes,
surgent. defeated Congressman Hull, stand-
I14 the1 Seventh district S. F. Prouty, in
patter, by a plurality of 1,400.
In the Eighth district, meager returns
show Towner, stand-patter, leading over
Darrah by a large majority. His nomi
nation la generally conceded.
In the Tenth district. Congressman
Woods, insurgent won out easily over L. e,

'The "progressives'' are Jubilant over the
nomination of Judge Prouty. It was Judge.
Prouty s fourth attempt to defeat Hull
and the former s majority is held to leave
no doubt as to the attitude of the Sev
enth district on the tariff on which sub
ject Hull has been a consistent regular,
Carroll Forces Confident.
The Register and Leader, with incom
plete returns from forty-slx counties at
toon, figured Oarst had a lead of 10,000
votes. Last night this paper figured a like
majority for Carroll. The Daily Capital
oday insisted on antlysM of incomplete
returns from thirty-three counties, that
Carroll Is the wint er by 10,000 or 12,000. At
respective headquarters both sides claimed
majorities of 20.000. It can scarcely be
conjectured Ji st w hen a definite announce
ment can be made. An official canvass,
it Is said, may be necessary before the
candidate can be named with certainty.
Claude E. Porter of Ccnterville apparently
has won the democratic gubernatorial nom
ination. According to the Dally Capital thirty
three counties, or one-third of the number
in the state. Indicate the nomination of
Governor Carroll by a plurality ranging
from 10,000 to 12,000. The thirty-thres coun
ties heard from, not complete, show that
Governor Carroll has 14,9U7, while his op
ponent, Mr. Garst, has 4.24(1. This gives
Governor Carroll a lend in one-third ot the
counties of tile state of 10,721 Votes.
Returns from Counties.
One county heard from, comnlets .1,
Governor Carroll made a slight gain. This
is Davis county, his home couniy, which
gives Carroll 707 and Garst BO, giving the
county to Governor Carroll by 7o0. Clay
county, nineteen out of twenty pieclnou,
give Carroll 0W and Garst 10. The lead of
Oarst In Bluck Hawk county has bsen cut
to less than 2U0. Jn Scott county tweniy
flvo out of thlrty-sU precincts show Galst
with a majority of 61;. This Indicates that
Scott county will give Garst a majority
of about 7u0. Returns from u.., ,.
i... . will
county show Governor Carroll galnrj 3uo
over nis vote or two years suo, when i,u
can led the county by over 100. Hloux City
complete gives Carroll a majority of -l
voles. The country' prtclncts ant i.vn..i.i
to increase this majority materially. Evsry
county In the first district gave Carroll
safe majorities and Indications are that ha
has carried the Third and Second dlslrlcu
by sate majorities.
Almost cjinpleto unofficial returns from
the. Seventh district give Prouty 1,100 over
Hull. This reversal Is decided, as two
years agu Hull was nominated by forty
Smith's majority in the ninth la another
sororlse. Present returns arte him i n,.,
