gramme Not to Falter.
NEW YORK, Feb. 12. "If the en
forcement of the law la not consistent
with the present method of carrying on
business, then It does not speak well
for the present methods of conducting
business and they must be changed to
conform to the law."
This was President Taft's answer to
Wall street and Its cry of "panic."
It was made to a cheering audience of
hundreds ; of prominent Republicans
gathered tonight at the annual Lin
coln day dinner of the Republican Club
of this elty, at the Waldorf-Astoria.
Mr. Taft adhered to bis purpose of
discussing platform pledges and how
they should be kept. It was at the con
clusion of a detailed argument as to
how th Republican party Is redeem
ing Its pledges tnat he came to a dis
cussion of the anti-trust law and Wall
street, on which his utterances had
been waited with greatest interest.
Stronger Law Pledged.
The President declared that the Ad
ministration "would not foolishly run
amuck In business and destroy values
and confidence just for the pleasure of
doing so." .a
"No one," he continued "has the
motive as strong as the Administration
in power to cultivate and strengthen
business confidence and prosperity. But
there was no promise on the part of
the Republican party to change the
anti-trust law except to strengthen it.
Of course, the Government at Wash
ington can be counted on to enforce the
law In the best way calculated to pre
vent a destruction of public confidence
in business, but that it must enforce the
law goes without saying."
President Taft did not hesitate to dis
cuss the attacks that have been made
upon the Administration and the party,
or danger to success fro-.n the insurgent
Republicans who feared defeat at the
polls In November, he declared, how
ever, should take courage from the de
moralized condition of their opponents,
"It was Grant," saiS the President,
"who banished his own fear in battle
by thinking how much more afraid the
Mr. Taft again came to the de-ense
of the Payne-Aldrich tariff bill. He
did not hesitate, he said, to repeat that
it substantially complied with the party
pledge for tariff regulation and that,
through this bill, the party had "set
Itself strongly in the right direction,
toward lower tariffs."
Reviewing the party platform, the
President spoke of postal savings
banks, amendments to the Interstate
commerce law, the anti-injunction
plank, statehood for Arizona and New
Mexico, and the conservation of Na
tional resources, bills to carry all of
which promisee Into effect were pend
ing In Congress, and he believed would
The President in doting referred to
Governor Hughes as a man "whose name
Is such a power before the country that
to lose him as a candidate for Governor
v by his voluntary withdrawal is to lose
the strongest esse that the Republican
party has in the state to enable it to
win at the next election."
Governor Hughes responded In kind
when his turn to speak came.
"The- American people are fair enough,"
he said, "to recognize a great President.

point of death as the result of accidental

and was immediately taken very ill.

Counties Will Name
1 248 Delegates.
UNANIMOUS VOTE ADOPTS PLAN
Gathering Will Be Held in
. Portland July 21.
PROXIES ARE ELIMINATED
Central Committee Provides for Se
lection of . Representatives of
Each County by Body Chosen
at Precinct Meetings.
Without a single discordant note, the
members of the Republican state central
committee, at a meeting in this city yes
terday, authorized Judge M. C. George",
the newly-elected chairman, to call a
state assembly to be held in Portland,
Thursday, July 21.
This assembly will consist of 12- dele
gates, apportioned by the committee
among the 34 counties of the state on a
basis of one delegate to every 50 votes
or major fraction that were cast for
R. R, Butler for Presidential elector in
November, 1908. Twenty-seven counties
were represented at the meeting, the
proceedings of which were marked with
No Dissenting1 Vote Heard.
The large and representative state as
sembly was indorsed by the committee
without a dissenting voice on the recom
mendation of a sub-committee of five
members which had been appointed to
prepare and submit some method of pro
cedure for calling and holding such an
advisory gathering. The members of this
committee were:- R. E. Villiams, of
Polk; C T. Early, of Hood River; PI. T.
Botts, of Tillamook; C. S. Moore, of
Klamath, and C. E. Cochran, of Union.
In counties outside of Multnomah, it
was recommended that delegates to the
state assembly be selected by county as
semblies and that delegates to the county
gatherings be chosen by majority vote
only at mass meetings of the voters In
he ffferent precincts, these meetings to
be called by the county central com
mittee. Saturday, July 9, is the date rec
ommended for the precinct mass meet
ings, with the date for the county assem
blies fixed for the following Saturday,
Multnomah County Excepted.
From this plan of organizing county
assemblies and electing delegates- to the
state assembly, Multnomah County was
excepted. In this county the committee
found that it would be impracticable, be
cause of the large number of voters, to
hold - precinct mass meetings. It was
voted to leave the matter to the county
central committee with the understanding
that it would exercise its judgment in
adopting some plan calculated to produce
the best results.
Dr. J. N. Smith, of Marion, and J. H.
"Worsley, of Wasco, asked that the same
discretion be left to the county central
committee of their counties with the re
sult that? following some discussion, the
original report of the committee was
amended to the extent that in other coun
ties where it was deemed advisable the
method of procedure in electing delegates
to the1 state assembly might be deter
mined by the county central committee.
Proxies will nor te allowed in the
state assembly If the recommendations
of the state committee are adhered to.
On this subject the committee took no
compromise position. It voted to elim
inate from the state gathering1 all
proxies. The committee did recommend,
however, that the vote of absent and
duly elected delegates in the state
gathering shall be cast according to
the majority opinion of those present
and acting from the same county. This
method, it was contended, will insure
the polling of the full vote of every
county in the assembly and at the
same time be expressive of the wishes
of the particular locality interested.

BY T. P. O'COXNER, M. P.
(Copyright by the Tribune company, 1910.H
LONDON. Feb. 13. (Special.) Suddenly
the whole political sky is overcast and tha
fate of the Liberal ministry trembles in
the balance. Redmond's speech in Iublini
set forth clearly the policy of the Irishj
party. This policy demands that the pass
age of the budget be postponed until tha
House of Lords veto the bill, at least a,
This attitude is imposed on Redmond by
the intense unpopularity of the budget
in Ireland, but still more by the abiding
suspicion in Ireland that the ministers
may try to palter with the question. The
Lords and Asquith's old association with
Rosebery and tlie former lukewarmnesa ,
on the home rule ls calculated to in-;
crease this feeling of uneasiness.
Redmond's Seecli Is Thunderclap. :
This speech of Redmond's came as a
thunderclap on Asquith and was discussed
at two Cabinet councils. It meant, ofi
course, that, if the ministers persisted ira
the tactics of bringing in the budget firsts-!
and the veto question afterwards, theyi
would be beaten by the transfer of the
Irish vote to the Unionist opposition. Ona-
solution suggested by the Unionists andi
some Liberals was that the budget in
that case should be passed by a combina-'
tion of Liberal and Unionist votes agalnetii
the Irish, but this policy already hasu
received a quietus from both Liberal audi
Redmond's policy, curiously enough, rep-i
resents the policy advocated by a large,
body of the radical opinion and also bj).
the most powerful radical newspapers, j
the solution of a combination between:
the Liberals and the Unionists in supporfi''
of the budget being out of the way. i
Three other solutions are possible. EJtherl
Asqulth could immediately resign, and,
secondly, Asqulth could proceed with tha !
budget and invite defeat in the House ofiJ
Commons by a combination of Tories
'and Irish. The third solution would bar
the adoption of the policy recommend ed
Irish and Radicals May Unite.
There are some difficulties from a finan
cial point of view in hanging up that
budget, including the loss 'of money
amounting to $75,000,000 for one year. Bub
these difficulitlee are not insurmountable'
if Asquith can come to terms with tha
radicals and with Redmond and proposa
a veto bill postponding the budget until
that measure is advanced well on the way
and until the whole world knows thaC.
Asqulth murt pursue the measure to tha
bitter end. Then the situation may ba
transformed again and the Liberal minis
try. Radicals and Irish can march to
gether in an effective campaign against '
the lords. Whether such an arrangement
is possible lies in the balance for the nexft
two days. It will probably be decided on
Monday or Tuesday next.
Another Election In July Likely.
If this working arrangiment is mada.
possible, the following will be the pro
gramme of the coming session:
The King's speech will be strictly lim
ited to the announcement of the Lords"
veto of the bill, after which some neces
sary money will be provided for immedi
ate expenses of the government. The'
House of Commons will separate for a

will introduce the Lords' veto bill, com-'
