today after a l,0C-mll trip of lnspee

"I described two classes of spurious
progressives." he ssid. "ar.d said the real
progressive was neither the demagogic
agitator nor the hypocrite who ta ks of
progress, but opposes every political pro.
gressive measure. I left there shoes to

"The crow d applauded when I said tha:
the true progressive would go where the
president had ra d he lr.tended ta j-o
down the middle of the road, straight
for the goal. I was particularly pleased
when Senator Bristow told the audience
he was g!d I was present, because he
liked the way I talked.
"Personally I was as much pleased with
the senator's remarks about conceding
honest differences of opinion as Be said
he was with my remarks about progres
sives. A tittle mutual recognition of the
honesty of some such differences may
bring all real progressives together in the

DES MOINES Sept. 3D. President Taft
received a welcome from many thousands
of the citizens of Des Moines this morn
ing when he began the second day of
his Iowa tour. Senator Cummins, the
progressive leader, who was conspicu
ously absent from the state reception
committee yesterday, was on hand bright
and early today and greeted Mr. Taft
at his train.
During the automobile parade, which
was a part of tbe local program. Sen
ator Cummins rode in the same automo
bile with former Senator Lafayette Young
from the "standpat" wing of the party.
Dea Moines wanted to make the presi
dent's reception "nonpartisan.''
Senator Cummins' automobile shared
generously in the applause from the
street throngs as the presidential parade
Mr. Taft s principal address at the Coli
seum was devoted to the peace treaties.
.The big crowd in the building broke
into-applause when he Miaousjeed hla sub?-

by them. r
The audience had first shown Its friend
liness by vigorously applauding Governor
Carroll, when ho introduced Mr. Taft as
"the president whose administration we
appreciate, whose comprehension of pub

Carroll and the people of Iowa for their
cordial reception to him.
la formal Debate with Caossntas. '
On the wsy from the coliseum President
Taft and Senator Cummins had a sort
of informal Joint debate on the subject
ot the pending treaties. Senator Cum
mins pointed out a number of provisions
which he thought should be altered. One
of these was to make more definite the
provisions as to the personnel of the high
joint commission and to provide for the
confirmation of the American representa
tives by the senate.
The senator said tbe treaties did not
make it obligatory on the president to
appoint American eitiiens on the commis
sion. President Taft said he thought that was
clearly understood, but he was v.illuig
to have it specifically stated.
Senator Cummins also said he insisted
on the treaties being debated In open
session of the senate.
'I'm with you on that," said the presi
dent. fenstor Cummins said he had sot
favored either tha majority report of the
foreign relations committee against tin
treaties or the views of the minority in
favor of them.
"Isn't that generally the case; don't
you usually take a position of your own r
laughed the president, throwing his arm
about the senator's snouidsr.
The senator assented.
The presidential special left for Albla
