WASHINGTON. ''Feb. I. In the first

connection with the Taft campaign
Charles D. Hilles, secretary e the presi

would be nmniaated and elected.
"President Taft'a nomination In June

Mr. Hilles in his statement. "1 am con
fident there will be comparatively little
opposition to him In the national con

made the republicans of the country will
rally to the party standard and win a
t-reat victory in November.
."I would not make this prediction did
1 not feel that my Information from all
parts of the country warrant tne ia doing
so. it Is easy to make big claim and
to try to deceive people, and I think
that a man who doe so without facta
and figures to Justify is guilty of-deception.
"A month ago, before 1 had gotten Into
