Taft Takes Iowa.
It is cow practically settled that
rreaident Taft will take a majority
of the Iowa delegation to the Chi
cago convention, leaving Senator
Cummin with only a few votes in
support of bis candidacy from bis
home state. This it a striking testi
monial to the strength of President
Taft with his party, for it la certain
that Senator Cummins would never
have announced himself unless fully
persuaded that he would have the
backing of an almost solid delega
tion from hi own state of Iowa.
It should be remembered that
Iowa In particular has been heralded
one of the prairie atates, afire
with Insurgency, which would go to
any republican rather than to Taft,
and that it waa originally counted
on by Senator La Follette a part of
the Insurgent column behind him.
When It became doubtful whether
La Follette would win in Iowa a
againit Taft, Senator Cummin waa
projected with the expectation of
making certain of withholding all
the Iowa delegate from the Taft
forces. Tet It transpires that Iowa
republicans prefer the president, not
only aa agaioat La Follette, but a
against Cummins, their own popular
senator, who could not convince
them that be wat really In the run
ning with any prospect of landing
the nomination, and tbey were not
ready to be party to any plan to
nullify the influence of Iowa In the
convention. .
Now that the republicans of Iowa
have spoken through their prlmarlea
and conventions, it would be tbe
handsome thing tor Senator Cum
mins to accept ths verdict, end throw

It la so easy to speak of breaking

to go too far with auperlatlves. But
this we know, that our Nebraska

be called a rampage, and have

From admissions made today It msy

Rooeevelt headquarters will be cloecd

Leaders of the Roosevelt movement
within the last three day seem to hare
become convinced thera no longer re
main chance of nominating the former
president. Hope has been abandoned. It
was aaid tonight, following confidential
report covering the campaign trip now
being made by Rxateveit.
It wa the dream of the Roosevelt
manager that the ex-prealdent. In his
appeal from the atump, would arouse
the sentiment which the Mven governor

The real reports sent to the Rooeevelt
managers, rather than the ones given
to the public, are to the effect that th
Rooeevelt tour haa failed.
The trip was planned to start an antl
Taft stamped. Ita failure tonight ia
sorrowfully admitted by many of the
strongest antl-Taft members of the re
publican Insurgent group.
Word reached here tonight to tbe ef
fect that th former prealdent himself
has learned that the glowing reports
carried to him before he announced hi

PAPILUOX. Neb.. April t-To the
Editor of The Bee: I notice in The Be
a apecial dispatch from Lincoln purport
ing to be a statement of I. B. Fuller,
secretary to the governor, relative to a
letter which was received by me and reau
at the Inquest over the body of Bay
Blunt at Springfield. According to till
dispatch Mr. Fuller says "the letter va
written and aent at the urgent request
of Coroner Armstrong himself." He also
says, "The coroner appeared in bis tall;
with the executive office to be very de
sirous of having such a communication
sent to be read at the inquect, aid It was
merely to conform with his idea of the
situation that Governor Aldiich wrote
th letter."
I do not understand why Secretary Ful
ler ahould make such a atkxement, a the
entire statement la absolutely untrue. I
never have had one word of conversation
with the governor, nor anyone connectci
with his office, upon this or any other
subject I never have had the honor of
making tbe governor'a acquaintance. I
never have seen him but once in m
and that waa in the Rome hotel in Oman
eome time last December. The letter in
question was not aent to me, but to Mr.
Figenbaum of Springfield, and by him de
