'( Oliinon v Aids Defense.
The revelation concerning the presence
of more than one bloodspot Is In line with
th contention of the defense that all blood
on the road oosed from the car in which
Keattle alleges his wife waa shot. The
prosecution' theory has been that the
large bloodspot In the road at the p. ace
whore Mrs. Beattle la alleged to have been
killed resulted from a murder committed
outside the machine and not In th seat,
as Henry Heattle allege. The prosecu
tion has pointed out by witnessed and It
statements concerning the murder that no
blood was found on either running board
of the car and that th dust pan under
neath the car would nave caught any blood
that trickled through th front part of th
machine from th aeat and that all th
blood visible had hardened on th floor of
the oar Just beneath the (tearing wheel.
Robertson waa summoned aa a witness
by th prosecution only tor th purpose of
te-tlf-'jig that h bad found a halrptnr but
his testimony aa a result of th questions
of counsel for th defease soon established
that he would be ah Important witness
for th defense and h subsequantly will
be called If necessary. In th mean tint
the prosecution will gather ever night wit
nesses to show that many people looked

Th prosecution announced Just befor

Leader of Democrats e mal

Take t" Tada-els In Uwa
Ql'INCT. 111.. Aug. . Champ Clark,
speaker of the national house of represen
tatives, before leaving here early today,
replied emphatically to President Taft's
speech of defiance to Insurgent republicans
snd democrats, delivered at Hamilton,
Mesa., last Saturday.
In a signed Interview the speaker ac
cused the president of not stating facts.
He said he did not reply for the Insurgent
republicans, who "never will take up th
cudgels In their own behalf."
He declared, among other things. If the
tariff board la to be used aa a pretext for
delaying tariff revision downward, the
democrats will nit off Its supplies.
"President Taft's speech at Hamilton,
Mm., last Saturday," said Speaker Clark,
"can only be described as remarkable
when the 'hiatory of the recent past Is
taken into consideration. He essayed the
rather large atunt of running amuck on
both tho democrats and the Inaurgent re
publicans In congress, singling out Chair
man Underwood and myself particularly
as democratic targets.
"I accept hla onslaught as a badge of
Criticism t aralleal For.
' The president's criticism of Mr. Under
wood and myself, which Is essentially a'
criticism of all democrats In the house and
senate because all democrats stood to
gether, la absolutely uncalled for and is
as ungrateful a performance as I can re
member, for If It had not been for the
action of democrats In the house in both
the past and Forty-second congress In
lining up almost unanimously In favor of
reciprocity with Canada, h would hsv
been th most thoroughly discredited and
humiliated president since the days f An
"With all the Influence and patronage of
his great office, he could not muster a
majority of house republicans for reciproc
ity in either th Sixty-first or the Blxty
second congresses. After we pulled him
out of the hole In the Sixty-first oonsresa,
he wrote a letter of thsnks to Mr. HcCall
of Massachusetts and the republicans, and
not a word of thanks to the democrats.
"When we repeated the performance of
pulling him out of the hole In the sixty
second congress . be did divide the thanks
between democrats and republicans. That
was after I and other democrats hsd ex
pressed our opinions with considerable
fore and bluntness about his letter of
thanks to Mr. McCall.
"Th president says we did not play poll
tics about reciprocity, but thst we did plsy
politics about the tariff. The only politics
we played was to keep faith with the peo
ple and to religiously redeem the promises
we made In order to win the election In
1910, which la the best and noblest sort of
politics. If any politics waa played on reci
procity the president himself played It,
personal at that.
Accent the Issae.
"That was a queer and suggestive picture
for democrats and tariff reform republicans
to contemplate the president making a
standpat speech at Hamilton, Mass., on
the farm of my good standpat friend, Hon.
Augustus Peabody Gardner, flanked on one
aide by Brother Gardner himself and on
the other by Gardner'a renowned father-in-law.
Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, chief
of protective tariff highbinders. That was
enough to make the angels weep.
"The president rushed in to create an
issue. Wa pick up the glove flung into
our faces and the faces of the consumers
of the land. We gladly accept his gage of
battle. . We confidently believe that ths
people will endorse our cauae and give to
us the victory, for we have right and truth
and Justice on our side."
TAFT IS WHITING SPEECHES
President Wants Tariff Made Mala
lean of Campalsra.
BKVTQRLT, Him., Aug. 80 far as
President Taft himself Is concerned, the
tariff will be the main Issue of the Wit
eampaigrn. While the president will speak
on many subjects on his western trip It
Is certain now that tariff revision will re
ceive most of bis attention.
The president today began to prepare
other speeches on th tariff. He obtained
copies of his veto messages en ths wool,
farmers' free list and cotton Mils and at
once set t work upon addresses that he
expects to deliver later, backing up theae
Mr. Taft la said to realise that he must
not merely defend himself for having re
jected thess bills, but that he must attack
the democrats and progressive republicans
who put them through congress. Th at
tack upon th democrats, the president can
make almost anywhere. It la understood
that -the fight upon the progressives will
be confined largely to their own territory.
The president will carry the war west into
the "enemy's country."
It Is quits possible that th progressives
will be under fire of the president also on
the subject of reciprocity. The president
hae heard enough from ths western con
gressmen to know that reciprocity is not
popular tn soma state west of the Mis
sissippi. The progressives are supposed
here fo count upon the bad effect reciprocity
will have with these western farmers. Ths
president's attitude In regard to reciprocity
probably will be more nearly defensive than
that In regard to tariff revision, for he has
always contended that reciprocity, tried for
one' year, would prove advantageous to
everyone and hurtful to none.
