PITTSBURGH. Ta., Oct. 31. President
Taft's second swing around the circle
came to an end here today In the most
enthusiastic and by far the noisiest dem
onstration ho has experienced In the
12,000 miles he has traveled. Pittsburgh
celebrated the centennial of steam navi
gation on western rivers and Mrs. Taft
was the star attraction. According to
the police, there were close to 150.000
persons on the wharf on tho Mononga
Jhela river when the president was taken
aboard the steamboat Virginia to re
view the "fleet" anchored there.
For five minutes after tho presidential
automobile turned down to the river bank
every whistle within miles was tied down.
The noise died down long enough for
Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth to chris
ten a "replica" of the New Orleans,
the first steamboat on western waters,
which was navigated down, the Monon
gahela and the Ohio 100 years ago by
her great grandfather, Nicholas J. Roose
There was quiet for a moment again
while the president spoke briefly, prais
ing former President Roosevelt for his
successful efforts in behalf of the Pan
uma canal, but when the Virginia, the
flagship of the fleet, turned out Into
the stream, It stnrted again. For more
than an hour and a half the Virginia
with the president In the pilot house
steamed down the Monongahela, up the
Allegheny, down the Ohio and then back
to che wharf.
Both banks of these rivers were lined
with people. The h'lls to the south of
the city, at times hidden by smoke, were
covered and every craft In the three
rivers had Its occupants. Members of
the Taft party who have traveled with
the president from coast to coast agreed
that the crowd was the largest that has
welcomed him anywhere on the trip.
The house was ao deafening at times
that the president was compelled to re
tire to the pilot house to "hear himself
think." He reviewed more than forty
steamboats of assorted sizes and speeds,
hundreds of motor boats, rowboats and
canoes, and scores of barges and gov
ernment dredges. It was such a fleet,
the president said, as he had never seen
Tonight Mr. Taft brought his visit to
Pittsburgh to a close with a speech at
the banquet of the local chamber of
commerce, where ho listened to a p'lea
for the repeal of tho Sherman anti-trust
act by Congressman Martin W. Littleton
of New York, member of the speclul
house of representatives committee that
at the special session investigated the
United States Steel corporation. Mr. Lit
tleton quoted both former President
Roosevelt and Mr. Taft as having at one
time or another been willing to have
the Sherman law amended. He declared
that there Is before the nation now In
the solving of the trust question, the
most difficult and far-reaching problem
affecting Us Internal peuce and progress.

THE CHECK BOOK CANDIDATE
Dan V. Stephens, stand up.
You are running for congress as the democratic nominee in the
Third Nebraska district.
In a letter to voters you say the people "have a right to know and
should know" about their candidate.
Information has just been made public that in 1904, when you
were sole manager for P. E. McKillip for congress, the colossal sum
of $26,054.29 was checked out of McKillip's bank account to pay his
campaign expenses and an additional $12,000 spent for which no .
checks were issued a total of $38,054.29.
Dan V. Stephens, you made no public accounting of this tremen
dous slush fund and palpably violated the corrupt practices law.
In 1908 and again in 1910 you managed the campaign for the late
James P. Latta for congress and he has told people that after drawing
all his salary he would still be short of what it cost him to be
elected. If so, you must have spent for him more than $30,000 and
repeatedly violated the corrupt practices act.
A great scandal has been produced in Wisconsin because Senator
Stephenson expended $107,000 to get to be senator, yet at the rate
you used the check book for McKillip a. state-wide campaign in all
the six districts of Nebraska would have called for $156,325.74.
Dan V. Stephens, how did you expect McKillip to get his money
back in congress?
Dan V. Stephens, you are spending money like water in your
Whose money are you spending?
Is it money left over from the unfortunate McKillip's check
Is it money that can be traced to Latta's check book?
If you use a check book for yourself now as lavishly as used for
McKillip, how do YOU expect to get the money back in congress ?
Dan V. Stephens, tell us about the check book.

In the tobneco case today, the attorney
general of the t'nlted States Raid he con
fessed "a great deal of sympathy" with

not feel much concern over extraordinary

"I can readily see," be continued, "how
men who have been fighting others for
years should come here asking the court
to cripple the enemies and hand their
property over to him. Thatvhowever,
Is not the function of this court and In
such case as this we must turn a deaf
ear to considerations thut might appe:il
to our human sense, that it may not

In approaching the task of disintegrat

the first subject of thought was as to
the size of the units to be taken from
In this connection he quoted from
court decisions holding that "magni
tude does not constitute a monopoly."

later that the American Tobacco com
pany was so powerful without resorting
to devices of the past that It actually
prevented competition in the tobacco
trade any way, und be demonstrated
that the company should be divided
again, we should be given an oppor

The larger portion of Oovernor Aldrlch's
address was devoted to analysis of the

If this was done what would become ot

however, Is this: Tho progressive demo
crats In Nebraska, including Mr. Hryan,
are clearly outside the breastworks, tho
party being in control of the J. C. Dahl

In viewing the history ot the demo

crats without the necessity of republican
votes. Bryan asked for pledges from his
audiences for the Initiative and refer
endum, and It is a good measure, but two
years ago a democratic legislature with
a working majority refused to pass it.
The administration of Oovernor Sheldon
and the republican legislature was given
attention und mention of the reform
measures noted. Including the freight and
express reduction, the J-cent passenger
bill, the railway commission and the pure
for.d law. The democratic party wus
