TAFT IS TIMBER
FOR PRESIDENT
Declines Place On Su
preme Bench.
WILL HAVE GREAT FOLLOWING
Launches No Boom, but It
Grows Without Effort.
HAS WORK TO COMPLETE
Anxious to Put the Philippines on
Koad to Autonomy and Prosper
ity and Oct Canal Construc
tion Under Way.
ORKGONIAX NEWS Bl'RKA V. Wash
ington. Oct. -'ti. Now that William H.
Tut't, Secretary of War. has declined an
appointment as Associate Justice of t lie
Supreme Court of the United States, it
may be set down for a fact beyond con
tradiction that lie Is on the list of Pres
idential possibilities, and there to stay.
In sonic quarters it was believed that
Mr. Tal't would relinquish all hope of the
Presidency in order to take the vacancy
on the bench left by the retirement of
Justice Brown. But those who knew him
were well aware that he would not se
riously entertain such a proposition. If
Mr. Taft had been offered the place of
"hlef Justice of the Supreme Court be
might have accepted, but the present
Chief Justice shows no signs of retiring.
Fine Presidential Timber.
Mr. Taft i Presidential timber of a
high grade. He would not make an un
seemly scramble for the nomination ; he
would not make a campaign on the
Hearst order, and he has not to this day
announced that he aspires to succeed
President Roosevelt. Mr. Taft looks upon
the Presidency much as Charles K.
II ughes looks upon the Governorship of
New York. If the people want him and
if his party wants him, lie will unques
tionably enter the race, and he may rest
assured that when the next Republican
National Convention assembles there will
be a mighty demand for him. Jt won't
be unanimous, for there are too many
others in the field, hut the Taft element
will be as strong at the outset as any
other crowd, and it will rally around
Taft because uf the love or admiration
for the man. Indiana will be there with
Fairbanks ; Illinois with Cannon ; Iowa
with Cummins, and New York with Root
or Hughes, but Ohio will present her
favorite son, and he wil he assured of
the support of many otiier delegations at
the very outset.
Wants to Finish Work on Hand.
While Mr. Taft must know, and does
know, of his great and growing popu
larity, it ia Impossible to get him to
talk about the so-called Taft bwom.
He hus never launched a boom of his
own, and has never taken the slight
est notice of the acts of tiis friends in
that direction, ltut. for all that, he is
mindful of public sentiment, and
therefore it is natural that he should
decline an appointment as Associate Just
ice of the Supreme Court.
Mr. Taft declined not so much on ac
count of his Presidential chances as
because be wants to stay in his pres
ent position and carry out work he
lias undertaken in the Philippines and
at Panama, fcver sincc his original ap
pointment in t lie Philippines,, he has
had the deepest interest In the archi
pelago, and has more confidence in the
ability of those people to uplift them
selves from savagery to civilization
than any other man in the States, and
his views on the future of the islands,
from a commercial standpoint, are
more optimistic than those of other
men.
C.et Canal Work Under Way.
The same way at Panama. Mr. Taft
has confidence that the canal will be
built in a reasonable t ime, and he
wants to see the work well under way
before he turns It over to some one else
to curry on. The actual work of con
struction was started under his direc
tion, and Mr. Taft would dislike to re
tiro from that directorship until he
could make a creditable showing to
the next man. He knows that condi
tions on the isthmus are not what the
people expect, and is determined to
get tho hlw machinery in smooth ruu
. ning order before he surrenders the
management. It is a big undertaking,
but, having tiu-kled it, he will not quit
until he ran do so with honor. If the
truth were known, his principal reason
for declining a phu r on the Supreme
Rench was this condition of affairs at
Panama. That's the kind of man Taft
is, and that's, the kind of President no
would make.
SEIZE CHURCH PROPERTY
French Cabinet Decide Policy,
Bishops Threaten All Who Yield.
PARIS. Oct. 26. The Cabinet has
readied a decision regarding the appiica.
tion of the provisions of the la w
for the se para lion of ehureh and
Mate by which the pr o pe r t y a r.d
revenues of the churches, in the event of
the clergy pt-rsiwimg in iheir pv-reut re
bellious attitude, will be sequestered De
cember 11. but ,the churcnes t hemselvcs
will remain o(en for public worship un
der the law of assembly of 1M during
theensuing year before the law goes
linaKy into effect.
In the meantime should the clergy re
fuse to yield, a Ministerial declaration
will be issued, indicating very cleuny the
Intention of the Cabinet to ask Parlia
ment for special legislation to meet the
situation. The nature of the measures
contemplated, however, will not be dis
closed, although it is announced that they
have been agreed upon.
In the meantime some newspapers de
clare that the Council of State, alter con--Utration
of the question of what consti
tutes a legal association under the law, !
is prepared to render a decision, that only
associations formed with the consent of
the former church, wardens and parish
priests are legally entitled to take over
church property, those formed by out
siders, having no previous connection
with the church wardens or parish
priests, being irregular. If this proves to
be correct, the decision will give .an im
petus to schism, as of all the associations
thus far constituted, but two have the
concurrence of both the parish priest and
church ward em, and these have been for
mally interdicted by the bishops.
Cardinal Lecot. Archbitahop of Bordeaux,
has issued an appeal to the faithful not
to join false Catholics and bad priests'
in the formation of associations lo take
over church property, and warns the par
ishioners who disobey his injunction that
they will lose the right to confess? and re
ceive the sacrament and notified the
priests that they will be prohibited from
preaching and administering the sacra
ment that those ' who thus wrongfully ac
quire church property will not only die in
a state of sin, but the obligation will rest
upon their posterity so long as the mem
ory of the eobbery endures."
MRS. PEARY IS CONFIDENT
Believes Her Husband Has Found
the Pole aud AVill Soou Be Hume.
PORTLAND, Me.. Oct K. Mrs. Robert
H. Peary, wife of tlia explorer, said to
day: "T feel just as! sure as I am living at
this moment that my husband has found
the North Pole, and that he will soon be
home to tell us all about it."
Mrs. Peary has spent the Summer with
her little daughter on Eagle Island, an
isolated bit of land in Casco Bay, where
the Peary Summer home is situated. With
her daughter she came to Portland yes
terday. "I do not expect to hear from him
until the last of November," she contin
ued, "but I will not be disheartened if
I do not hear from him then. If he has
not reached the pole I suppose he is in
his Winter quarters at Cape Hecla. On
the last trip Mr. Peary was forced to turn
back when within 250 miles of his goal,
owitiK to the lack of provisions. The
Roosevelt will be able to plough 500 miles
farther north than his other ships, and
this will give him just so much advan
tage." CHINESE ARMY EFFICIENT
Carries Portable Wireless Plant and
AVins Expert's Praise.
CHANGTL'FU, Oct. 26. A notable fea
ture ot the Autumn maneuvers of the
Chinese imperial army, which ended
yesterday, has been a portable wire
less telegraphy apparatus, carried upon
liht wagons and so adjusted that it
ran be erected in less than 3D minutes.
The stations wcru operated by Chinese
officers of the telegraph corps.
The maneuvers ended with victory
for tho Northern army. At a village
live miles south of Changtufu this army
succeeded in chocking the advance of
the Southern army. The programme
begun with cavalry operation,-, fol
lowed Wednesday by artillery prac
tice. All arms displayed excellent dis
cipline. Experienced military observers are
of tlie opinion that with the exception
of certain minor defects and making
allowance for the fact that the opera
tions were an experiment, the maneu
vers were almost equal to those con
ducted in Kurope. The maneuvers cost
$o00,000.
SEA TO BE STOREHOUSE
Cuban Arms of All Sorts Dumped
Into Salt Water.
. HAVANA, Oct. 2. Carrying out fur
ther the policy under which arms sur
rendered by the insurgents have been
destroyed, orders have been given that
a sreat quantity of arms, the accumu
lation of 40 years, now stored in the
casemates of Morro Castle, bo tiirown
into the sea. This work is being done
bv the garrison under the supervision
of American officers. Most of the guns
are of obsolete pattern. About 1000
stands of arms are to e rendered use
less. It is intended to do away with
similar accumulations of arms in other
fortresses. This destruction of wea
pons is a precautionary measure.
Governor Majjoon has accepted the
resignation of Gaston Mora, under sec
retary of government, and has ap
pointed Manuel Sobrado to the place.

Tuberculosis Not Hereditary.
SYRACCSKL N Y.. Oct. 'IS. Dr. R. P.
Ravenal, assistant director of the Henry
riiipps Institute for the Study of Tu
berculosis, at Philadelphia, yesterday
said it was reasonable to expect
that in the near future persons
would be vaccinated to make them im
mune from tuberculosis. He said that
nothing had done more harm in the ef
fort to pre.vent tuberculosis than the be
lief by many that it is in tho family,
and that there is no use to tipht against
it. The speaker stated that iKi per cent
of all persons upon whom post mortems
have been made have had scars on their
lungs when tuberculosis has been healed.

ises to be the biggest milk concern in
the I'nited States has jut been or
ganized under the name of the New
