Experience With Runaway.

The significance of Mr. Taft's remarks
In relation to the chances of his nomina
tion for the Presidency next year, did not
seem to strike his audience. The Secre

enthusiasm by the representatives of the
Filipinos present, when he declared the

lands. Mr. Taft devoted today to an inspection
of the schools of Manila.
Taft and Smith In Runaway.
"While returning from Fort McKlnley
last night the horses attached to the car
riage in which were Mr. Taft and Governor-General
Smith ran away. A de
tective who was on the box took the reins
from the hands of the driver, but he was
not able to bring the horses to a stand
still. He succeeded, however. In driving
them Into a ditch and thus stopped the
carriage. Neither occupants nor horses
were hurt. There Is no official pro
gramme for tomorrow, and the Secretary
consequently will have a free day.
The first Joint resolution of the Philip
pine Assembly was passed today. It was
addressed to the American people through
President Roosevelt, and conveyed the
thanks of the Filipinos for the boon of

AWAIT BRYAN'S DECISION
Johnson and Culberson Will Not
Run if He Does.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 19. A special to
the Bulletin from "Washington says that
within Blx weeks "William J. Bryan will
make formal announcement as to his de
termination regarding the Presidential
nomination. His confidential friends have
felt authorized to make this statement
and assign the reasons for It. "Whether
Mr. Bryan will make his attitude known
through a letter to a supporter or through
a public speech cannot be stated.
Should Mr. Bryan decide to run, the Mitfc
nesota delegation will not present the
name of Its Governor. Senator Culberson,
of Texas, Is another who 'will not permit
the use of his name before the convention,
should Mr. Bryan Indicate a willingness
to accept the nomination. In view of
these facts It Is explained that Bryan Is
convinced he must speak out before the
temocrats can seriously consider choos
ing a candidate.
Everything In Democratlo political cir
cles has been blocked for months. No
progress can be made In urging any candi
date for the nomination, and It would be
Intolerable for the Democrats to be com--pelled
to start Into an Important session
of Congress without knowing whither
they were drifting.
It Is believed, of course, that Mr. Bryan
will announce his willingness to accept a
nomination. Even this would place the
party in a far better position than to leave
the leaders all at sea.
MUST LIKE FULL PERIOD
SPECULATORS IN HOMESTEAD
. LANDS SHUT OUT.
Commissioner Balllnger Holds Com
muters Strictly to Law in
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. "Wash
ington, Oct. 19. The following impor
tant announcement was made today by
Land Commissioner Ballinger:
"By circular instructions Just Issued
the Commissioner of the General Land
Office, with the approval of the Sec
retary of the Interior, has advised all
local land offices of a change In the
ruling with regard to homestead en
tries commuted to cash under the
commutation clause of the homestead
laws. It was believed that under the
old construction of the commutation
provision, which recognized .constfuc
tive residence, persons desiring to se
cure public land for speculative pur
poses were furnished with Inducements
and facilities not found under other
land laws, and that a large percentage
of the homestead entries commuted to
cash were. In their first Inception,
made for the purpose only of securing
title to the land and not with the
view of obtaining a homestead for
the sole use and benefit of the entry
men, which wa,s the primary object of
the homestead law.
"By ruling Just announced, no com
mutation proof offered under a home
stead entry made on or before Novem
ber 1, 1907, will be accepted unless
such proof shows that the entryman
has. In good faith, actually resided
upon and cultivated the land embraced
within his entry for the full period
of fourteen months, thus doing away
with the constructive residence period
"The ruling Just announced, how
ever, will not1 affect homestead en
tries made previous to November 1,
and commuted to cash if, when proof
Is made. It Is satisfactorily shown that
the entryman established actual resi
dence on the land embraced within his
entry within six months from date of
entry. In which cose he may be cred
ited with constructive residence from
date of entry, but in this connection
the entryman must show that his resi
dence, once established, was main
tained In good faith for such period
an, when added to period of construc
tive residence, will equal the full pe
riod of 14 months' residence required
under the commutation clause of the
homestead act. Commutation proofs
will not be accepted when they fall to
how that the required residence and
cultivation was continued to the date
on which application to make final
proof was filed In the local Land Office.
"It Is the belief of the Commission
er of the Land Office that strict con
struction of this rule will reduce spec
ulation in thia class of entries and re
serve for the bona tide home-builder
land suitable for agricultural pur

JOAQUIN MIIXER RECEIVES UN
Former Gold-Digging Companion
Complains of Poet's Dislike
SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 19.-(Speclal.
Announcement of the death of. George P.
Covert, Intimate friend of Joaquin Miller,
the "Poet of the Sierras." brought to his
nephew in this city the first news of him
that any members of his family had re
ceived since he left New York for the
California gold fields. In 1848. Covert's
demise was reported -.from Shasta County
on October 7. After an Investigation
George H. Covert, head of a firm of
haberdashers in this city, is satisfied that
the Shasta miner was his uncle.
"During the gold fever- In "49," said
Covert, "our family was living In New
York. Uncle George came Into the house
with a pick and shovel one day and an
nounced that he was going to California
to dig for gold. That was the last we
heard of him."
George P. Covert and Joaquin Miller
mined together at Middletown in the gold
days and Covert often complained that
the greater share of the work fell upon
him, as Miller spent most of his time
reading in his bunk. It was In recollec
tion of these days that Covert, when
fame had lifted his erstwhile cabin mate
to lofty heights, announced to Shasta
County and the world in general that
Miller was the laziest man he had ever
met. Covert died at the age of 86 years.
