When the first returns began to come
m, indicating that the conservatives had
made decided K&Ini, Mr. Taft remained
hopeful that tii a reaulta In the western
provinces would maLerlaXy . change the
situation. As the conservative victory
continued to crow, however, he gave up
sil bop. Few of the banqueters present
knew that the president was receiving the
retains from across the border, and they
did not appreciate what the play of his
countenance meant as the little white
slips of paper containing Associated Press
bulletins were passed to him across the
Mr. Tsft proved a good loser, however,
for when be rose to speak, hla character
istic smile had not deserted him and he
spoke in a happy vein for a few minutes
preceding his more serious discussion of
the arbitration treaties.
The president had confidently predicted"
to his friends, as late as today, that reci
procity would win in Canada. He bad re
frained from discussing the Issue In any
of hla publio utterances while the elec
tions were pending In Canada, despite
the pressure that had been brought to
bear upon him since the beginning of his
present tour. Today at Battle Creek,
however, with the assurance that what
ever he mlhl say could not be mtscon-
f trued. Inasmuch s the Dominion polls
were about, to close. Mr. Taft launched
Into a reciprocity speech. He spoke with
the confidence of one who believed vic
tory to be In sight.
Annexation Talk Bad.
President Taft was deeply chagrined
when the annexation bugaboo was
brought Into the discussion of reciprocity
and believes it had mush to do with de
' elding the issue In Canada, the op
position leaders having used It In every
possible way. The president In his speech
at Battle Creek today took occasion again
to dispel this bugaboo, as he has at fre
quent times In the past.

probable effect of the' Canadian election

WASHINGTON, Sept. 22 The question
which now Is agitating leaders of po
lltlcal parties and factions throughout
the United States la how their fortunes
In the approaching national campaign will
be affected by today s defeat of the
Laurler government and Canadian reci
procity. It is evident that the replies will
be as varied In character as were the
political views of the factions which
fought over the question during the spe
cial session of congress.
Official Washington closely followed the
returns from Canada tonight, but re
mained silent as the figures poured in
showing the Laarler party had been de
feated and reciprocity rejected. Acting
Secretary Huntlugton Wilson of the State
department declined to make any state
ment and there was no other high official
ber In a position to discuss the situation.
The unofficial view was that as Canada
had rejected the agreement there was
nothing for the administration to do "but
to make the beet of the matter."
Will Influence Next Campaign.
That the rejection ot the Canadian
agreement will have a strong bearing on
the campaign of President Taft for re
nomination and re-election la not doubted.
Borne of the old guard, republicans who
supported the agreement "against their
better Judgment" are saying that its de
feat will strengthen the Taft administra
tion by removing the only Issue on which
they war in disagreement with the presi
dent. Most of the Insurgent republicans
opposed the agreement and they believe
that their position has been made much

among the speskera were Henry Watter- J

of Indiana, who talked of "The Ccnsti- '

Colonel Watterson . told of the stand
taken by him many years ago against
the "dead head" system then in vogue
In newspaper circles and prophetic of a
new era In Journalism when passes and
free tickets would not hamper the edi
In this connection he raid:
"Something more than thirty-eight
years ago. to be exact, the first of May,
1873 a long time betwixt dinners and
drinks I stood where I am standing now,
a guest .of the Editorial ; Association of
Indiana, asked to take pot-luck, and in
cidentally to talk about Journalism.
"Not until the coming of your hospit
able invitation did I have occasion to re
cur to the half-forgotten episode and to
read over again what I had said to my
brethren of the Hoosier press. I dlscov
ered at least nothing to alter or regret.
Albeit, the emanation of a very young
man, It laid down a line of principles
and standards of conduct he has during a
long and busy life striven to Illustrate
and live up to.
. "Not. a. little of what was said In 1373
would read a trifle trite now.- The preas,
indeed, has outgrown many of its short
comings. But I am going to read you a
short passage because it Is in a way Il
lustrative and reminl.scentlal and has a
touch of humor to It. It appears that I
was stirred by what I described as ."the
dead-beat system" and the dead-head
system," and that I . relieved my feel
ings with the following:
Would Pay as He Goes.
" 'First of all comes, . of course, the
dead-head system, which Is the parent of
the dead-beat system: free' passes, free
tickets' and free postage. You will all
applaud the - sentiment' that it Is best to
pay as we go, and there is not one of
you but believes in the man who asks
favors of 'nobody; who -is the slave ot
nobody; who minds his own business, re
lies upon himself, and. lves ' as such a
man"' ir likely to live, an upright, Indus
trious and decent life. How can a man
realize this .character who- submits to the
tacit corruption and quast-lndlgnlty of a
free ride over a ral'road which gives it, in
order that It may be able to command his
silence or his support,; or a free admission
into' the theater, which Is meant to se
cure an unfaithful complimentary notice
of the performance next morning; or free
transit .through the 'mails, which is so
obtained by a collusion with local poli

too often interested In newspaper publi
"The dead-beat system and the dead
head system are things of the past. They
will never trouble us more. The news
paper is so far a commercial institution,
subsisting on the law of gupply and de
mand that its representatives have ceased
to think it a merit to pay their way like
other people. With scorn they resent all
largess unless it comes through treaty
stipulation with foreign countries estab

In conclusion Colonel Watterson said:
"On the whole the newspaper has made
genuine progress these eight and thirty
years. In the clavs o. ji stols and coffee
for two," It was rather more blatant than
self-respecting. It is now rather more
self-respecting than blatant. With aasured

His Church at the
Ad Men's Banquet
The Ad club enjoyed a novelty at its
dinner at the Hetishaw last night In the
form of a sermon from Rev. John Mat
thews of the First Baptist church. It is
a recognized custom with the Ad club
that anyone speaking before it may ad
vertise his own business and Mr. Mat
thews didn't neglect the opportunity.
He spoke of the value of the church
to a community and said that if churches
were taken away from Omaha many of
the people would move out, and property
would depreciate 60 per cent in value.
Business men generally don't appreciate
this fact, : he said, or. all of them would
be liberal contributors to the churches.
He made a number of observations on the
uplifting power of Christian religion in
an easy, conversational way tnat mace
a big hit with hla hearers.
Charles A. Alden, financial secretary
of the University of Omaha, spoke on
"Dreamland aria Our Land," his "dream
land" being a fully developed and pros
perous University of Omaha. Speaking of
the advertising value of the university,
he said Omaha was already known as
having the first Christian, but nonsec-
tarlan institution in the country and it
could further advertise Itself by being
the first city to have an institution with

Borne friends of the Canadian agree
ment do not hesitate to charge, the de.
feat of the Laurler government to the
Rex-all Champ Clark's Speech.
One of the excuses for thla Issue was
suggested by a speech of Champ Clark
of Missouri, now speaker of the house.
in favor of the agreement during ths last!
session of the sixty-first congress, when
the agreement was passed by ths house
and held up by the senate. Mr. Clark
was making a plea for a wider market
and in giving his reasons for supporting
the Canadian agreement said;
"I am for it because I hope to see the
day when the American flag will float
over every square foot of the British
North American possessions clear to the
North pole- They are people of our
blood. They speak our language. Their
Institutions rs much Uke ours. They
are trained In the difficult art of aelf
government. My Judgment Is that. if the
treaty of 1S54 had never been abrogated
the chances of a consolidation of these
two countries would have been much
greater than they are now."
