my subject. The gentleman on my

And heaven only knows how far that
has been. Yet sometimes I have
grown so utterly weary of being right

I am told, Mr. Taft, that as a form cf
relief the presidency Is a false alarm,
and very temporary.

President Taft laughed heartily at
Mr. Glllilan's remarks, and led the ap
plause at the close of his address,
