MEADV$LLE, Pa., Oct. S3. President
Toft asked the farmers of western Now
York and Pennsylvania today to support
Ji!s plan for co-operatvo banks that will
loan money to farmers at low interest
rates. He suggested that the legislators
In Washington would npprovo the plan,
but urged the farmers to uso their In
fluence with members of state legislatures
J to have the states act upon it.
1 Now I am especially Interested, and
Jiave been since I was In the Philippine
Islands because there we had the ques
tion in an acuter form, in making the
credit to our farmers such that they can
borrow money and equip their farms in
the bestj way and make them produce
the mot,"'Mr. Taft saidv "The truth Is,
our mouths are more than catching up
with oUr production and if we don't look
out wo will havo a people so large in
numbor that we shall have to import
food in order to feed it."
Prosperity and Pence,
JAMESTOWN, N. Y.. Oct. 26. Several
thousand persons' wero at the Erie station
this morning to greet President Taft
when he stopped here for fifteen minutes
on his way to Cambridge Springs. He
spoko for ten, minutes from the car
"I congratulate you," he said, "upon the
ovldence of prosperity I saw as I cams
into tho city, which is only an evidence
' of tho prosperity of the entire country
Our .exports and Imports for the present
year are the greatest in tho history of
the nation, aggregating more than
$1,000,000,000, None of usvknow Just what
these figures mean, but wo do know they
show the wonderful .progress over our"
-country is makhnr. Hjr
"I congratulate you that'' our country
Is free from war with any nation and
I wish we hod assurances that it might
alwuys remain so. And wo could have
such assurance's'lf trie treaties which I
liavo negotiated with England and Ger
many and France wero ratified and
adopted between all civUizefl countries of
'Favor International Conrt.
"I am pre-eminently a man of peace
and yet I yield to no man my feeling of
pride in tho splendid naval display which
I recently witnessed at New York. It
Rhowed that In case we had to defend
our country we wore In readiness to do i
sovand in case we had to hit at all, we
could hit hard. The rivalry among the I
nations of the earth today compels us
to continue the building of battleships,
but T would like to seo an International
court established with the great powenj.'to
which could be submitted tho grievance
of any nation that had a' grievance, with
the feeling that It could and would be
pmlcably adjusted. When that time comes
we can dispense with the building of
BTat battleships nnd reduce our navy to
a reusonablo coast defense."
President Taft concluded his address
with a plea for federal action which will
result In the creation of a system of
loans to farmers for agricultural pur
poses and which would enable them to get
money at a low rate of interest for the
operation of their farms and improving'
the soil so as to increase production.

Jury returned a verdict of guilty without

that Vaughn will be sentenced to death.
Vaughn's confession brought his trial
to a sensational close. His attorneys
had fought stubbornly slnco tho begin
ning of the coso to break down the
strong ovidenca developed by tho prose
cution's child witnesses.
Immediately after court proceedings
began attorneys for both sides agreed
to let Vaughn plead guilty In an effort
to save his own lifo,
"I have acted devilishly, havo acted"
shamelessly," began Vaughn. "The
devil tempted mo and I havo fallon," ho
exclaimed In his plea, to tho Jury, whllo
Judgo, Jurors and spectators wept.
Tho Jury returned tho vettltct after
four minutes' deliberation. Tho penalty
la tho elcctrio chair.
Vaughn begged tho Jury to spare his
lifo, not so much for his sake as for his
wlfo and little daughter.
Vaughn formerly was assistant super
intendent of the First Baptist church
Sunday school here. Ho was a minis
terial student and frequently occupied
pulpits of churches in and around
Groenvlllo. Ho owns considerable prop
erty. Diaz Assumes All

statement made at his trial by court
martial at Vera Cruz.
Efforts to savo Diaz' life are being
continued by men of high standing in
Mexico. The supreme court today in
structed the Judgo at Vera Cruz to insist
on the suspension of the sentence of Diaz.
Eighteen prisoners faced the court
martial at Vera Crez, with General Da
Felix Diaz sat In the center of the
group and appeared entirely composed.
In his declarations to tho court he said:
"I am the only one responsible for the
uprising. I have known Colonel Jose
Diaz Ordaz 'for many years, and I 'won
htm over to my side. The other officers
did not evan know the place to which
they were being taken. I had no accom
plice since thorn was no time to mako
preparations for my movement."
President Maydero refused to accedo to
the demand of the tcnate that ho should
send cabinet ministers to make a report
regarding the rebellion at Vera Cruz and
tho military trial of General Diaz.
