In the first author! red (s lenient he has issued la connection with the Taft campaign Charles D. Hilles, secretary e the presi dent, predicted today President Taft would be nmniaated and elected. "President Taft'a nomination In June Is aa certain aa anything; could be," ssjd Mr. Hilles in his statement. "1 am con fident there will be comparatively little opposition to him In the national con vention, and when the nomination w 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 touch with repubiicana In all the states, J would not hava said this much, la that month I have seen the Una drawn closer and oloser. In the last week the situa tion has cleared wonderfully with repub lican In all direct lone falling Into Hn far the president and manifesting a de termination to brine about feu aomlna tloa. hew Verb, Ohio and ladlaaa. "It I useless to speak in general term r to undertake at short notice to fo Into condition In eacb state, but development la tars of the bl state within a few days uught to point conclusively to ths present trend."

"I have a telegram from Indianapolis, saying that even' single member of the republican state committee elected In ths thirteen congressional district yes terday. I for Mr. Taft. That Is a big ehang from a committee whose chair man, Mr. Tjee, went around Washington In December proclaiming that Indiana was hostile to the president. ' Katkaslaaaa ta New lark. In regard to New Tork stale Mr, Hilles said: "The president' api-eche in New Tork so enthused tlie rupubilcens there that the exerutlve committee of the county com mittee of New Tork county passed by unanimous vote resolution endorsing the president and declaring for his renomina tlon In the strongest terms. "This was followed by a meeting of the general republican committee of Kings county. Brooklyn. By unanimous vote Mr. Taft renomlfiallon was urged. I was told today by two of the leader of Biooklyn that It had not been the Inten tion of the leaders to bring about an en dorsement at that meeting, but the action-"" was spontaneous after a member had In troduced the resolution. The information from the leaders In New Tork wu uni formly that the president will have the delegation of the state. "In Ohio Ihe president's speeches have awakened republicans to a degree that waa not expected. I hava not a doubt that every delegate from the state will be for him."

I. -Prices of oil have been going up steadily since the dissolu tion of the oil trust by the decree of the United States supreme court and a rep resentative of the Standard Oil company aid today that they probably would go higher. Three times thl year the Standard Oil company of New Jersey baa advanced the price which it pays for crude oil and there have been corresponding Increases In the wholesale and retail quotations for kerosene, gasoline and other of the re fined products. J. I. C. Clarke, the mouthpiece of the Standard Oil company, said thst the higher prices were due to economic con dition. The Pennsylvania field he said, upply the best crude oil and as Ihe out put of that product recently has been insufficient the price of Pennsylvania oil has been advanced to stimulate pro duction. Mr. Clarke said that ths quotation would be ralaed until it reached a point which restored the production in the Pennsylvania field to the required basis. The Weather TOR NEBRASKA Fair aud colder.
