COLUMBUS, 0., President Taft publicly
explained today his exercise of the veto
poweit In his speech to a great crowd of
farmers on the state fair grounds here,
he declared that a president who did not
use the veto power when he thought it
should be used proved himself a coward.
; "Some of my friends say," said the
j president, "that if a king had used the
veto power as ! have, his head would
drop the basket. But I am not a king,
t and that is very different. The president
I has the power and it is his duty if he
!does not approve legislation to veto It.
He must use the veto when his conscience
tells him, whether his head drops In the
basket or not. If presidents are men
and most of . them are they will exer
cise the veto when they think they ought
- ' Most Vetoes are Good.
"Look over the vetoes of other, presi
dents and show me the bad one and I will
show you more that made good. Our
forefather's thought that it was well to
have one man who would represent all
the people and who would be able to tell
ail the people when he saw legislation
that he did not believe was good. The
veto is an excellent thing. My friends who
criticise me forget that I was elected
Just as they were and by a good many
inore people than they were."
The president spoke to the farmers of
legislation which congress had enacted
for their benefit and promised that other
legislation would follow. He said the gov
ernment is . investigating the system of
agricultural experts in . Germany which
extend credit to the farmers at low

day beside that of Catherine Booth, his
wife, in Abney Park cemetery.
Representatives of reigning houses and
of presidents of republics, including the
United States, ; Joined round the grave
with many thousands from the masses
whom the founder of the Salvation Army
had tried to uplift
The coffin was borne from the great
doorway of Salvation Army headquarters
to the hearse, which was decorated only
with dry palms placed , over the "blood
and fire'' banner draping the casket The
celebrated battle flag which the general
had planted on Calvary was placed at
the head of the coffin, and as this was
done the flags of the foreign deputations
and of the English provincial corps dipped
in salute. "
' Immediately after the hearse a selected
bodyguard of staff officers ot the Salva
tion Army swung into line, preceding the
mourners of the family, who were led by
General and Mrs. Bramwell Booth. The
entire procession was more than a mile
long. '-''
Most- fittingly the procession passed
through a portion , of that section of the
city where the work of the Salvation
Army is best known, and there in front
of the houses stood many poor women
and children who . had at some time or
other received benefit from the army.
As General Booth had been an honorary
freeman of $he city of London, the lord
mayor appeared on the balcony of the
Mansion House and saluted '.lie coffin.
The service was a ' simple one. Ad
dresses were delivered by Lieutenant
Colonel Damon, representing the Salva
tion Army in America, and Miss Eva
Booth, who arrived early this morning
from her journey across the Atlantic,
and General Bramwell Booth and Com
missioner Cox. The late general's young
est granddaughter sang a solo and Com
missioner Carleton read the Scripture.
Bramwell Booth ' read the Salvation
Army's brief commitment service.
Concluding sentences were followed by
the swelling notes of the Salvation Army
song, "To. the Front tins Cry Is Ring
ing; to the Front Tour Place Is There."
