Ba It Resolved. F.y the membera of the
republican party In the eta to of Nebraska,
assembled In masa convention this, the
nineteenth day of December, 1011, that we
heartily, earnestly and .sincerely are In
favor of the renomltiatlon and re-election
cf William Howard Taft as president
of the United States.
"We are In favor of hla renomtnatlon
and re-electton because ha has demon
strated by his administration that ha la

- equal to any, and the superior of many
of his predecessors. He exercises that
hleh degree of wisdom which best con
serves the Interests of all the people and
a broad atatesmanshlp which protests the
American rights In all International nego
tiations and controversies.
"We are for the renomlnatlon and re

quiring of porta or harbor on the eoasta
of either North or South America by any

between th American countries a greater
degre of personal friendship and a
closer bond of American unionism In
