HURON, SOUTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 1908BURTON JIAMtS TAFTSpeech Placing Secretary of War Before Republican Convention.PERFECT TYPE OF MANHOOD Has Had an Ideal Preparation During His Long and Active Public Career for the High Office to Which He Now Aspires. Secretary of War William H. Taft was placed in nomination for president of the United States before the Republican national convention by Representative Theodore E. Burton of Ohio. Mr. Burton spoke as follows: ‘•This convention enters upon the grave responsibility of selecting a presidential candidate with the serene assurance that the Republican party will continue to rule this people, What assembled multitude in any land has ever pointed the way to such beneficent results for home and for the progress of the whole human race as the recurring conventions of this grand old organization? Vet we do not rely alone upon the record of that which it has accomplished. We emphasize even more its supreme qualification to solve the problems of the present. ‘It is especially appropriate that this gathering should be held in this marvelous city of Chicago, whence the steel bands of commerce reach out in every direction over plain and river and mountain to almost boundless dis- treasures £**- tance, bringing the richest treasur - - - - : se*Sfr—^  TTP ~    *' THEODORE E. BURTON. of a continent to lay them at your feet. Here it was that the righteous uprising against slavery and Bourbonism sprang from the nation’s conscience, raised its first triumphant voice when Abraham Lincoln was nominated. And bere again, with notes of thunderous acclaim, enraptured throngs greeted the naming of Garfield, of Blaine, of Harrison and of Roosevelt. “Again Ohio presents a candidate to the national Republican convention. In seven stubbornly contested presidential campaigns sons of her sacred soil have led the embattled Republican hosts to victory. The Buckeye state has assuredly contributed her share of statesmen and generals for the up* building of the nation. But that of which we are prouder still Is her stalwart citizenship, the mightiest bulwark of the republic in every commonwealth, made up of America’s free yeomen, ever ready to respond to the tocsin of alarm in days of peril or to crush corruption whenever it raises its menacing head. From this citizenship Ohio in the supreme emergency of the tivil war sent forth more than two hundred thousand soldiers fer our country’s defense, a formidable array, easily surpassing in numbers the world conquering legions of imperial Caesar and even larger than any army ever mustered by Britain for the tented field. But transcendent above all is the fact that Ohio is one of a matchless union of states linked together in everlasting bonds of amity and constituting an empire wonderful in power and almost immeasurable In extent. Each sovereign state alone would occupy but a subordinate place in the great current of the world’s events, but when represented by one of forty-six bright stars on a field of stainless blue every one forms part of an emblem of union ard of strength more beautiful far than the most brilliant constellation in the heavens. “We welcome the friendly rivalry of candidates from other states, from the great Empire state, the Keystone state, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin, forming with Ohio a broad expanse extending in unbroken sw*eep from old ocean to the uppermost bound of the greatest of inland 9eas. Each of these presents a leader among leaders wrhose achievements and renow*n are not confined to the narrow* limits of a single commonwealth. Today with fervid earnestness we wrage a contest for the prize. Tomorrow*, united for the fray and quickened by a common fiery zeal, the champions cf all the candidates will go fcrtn with mounting enthusiasm to vanquish the foe. ‘‘The most perplexing questions of today arise from the bountiful development of our ^material wealt h. Such a development cannot occur without the creation of inequalities and dangers to the social fabric. I most strenuously deny that the American business man or the American citizen cherishes lower standards th— the citizens of any other country. The American people are by no means depraved. But by reason cf their busy ibsorption in varied pursuits and of die glamour which attends success in treat undertakings questionable meth-! Dds have been able to ingraft tiiem-1 selves upon toe business of the country. Rich rewards have too trequent-iy been gained by some who are none too scrupulous. Monopoly, dishonesty and fraud have assumed a prominence fthicli calls for the earnest attention and eon deni ii at ion of every man who truly loves the republic. ! “Against all these abuses and in the fcork for restoring old ideals of honesty and equality as well as for higher standards of civic duty one man has stood pre-eminent and that mail is Theodore Roosevelt. Against corruption in every form be has set his face wit h grim determination, prompt and fearless in action and with that intelligent leadership which has assured the establishment of a better era in which the strong and the weak alike must 1 submit themselves lo the impartial execution of the law. There was nee i of a strong, courageous spirit to restrain those destructive forces which t have asserted themselves in this time of growth and plenty. The story of his achievements will make up one of the brightest pages in the history of this or any age and will prove that today, as in any critical hour of social j unrest or of danger, the man will ap-# peaj* w]10 caD grapple with the emergency. ~ v * - • r “Who so fit to take up the tasks w*hich this wondrous generation demands should be wisely and impartially performed as his great w*ar secretary? Since the day when, in Benjamin Harrison’s administration, these tw*o first met—the one as solicitor general, the other as a member of the civil service commission—they have been bound together by like ideals and aims, by close ties of friendship and by the exchange of mutual counsel, each with his ow*n individuality and characteristics keeping constantly in view the ennobling vision of a better and a greater America* They hav^e not been satisfied that the temple of prosperity should be decked alone by the jewels of the fortunate and the opulent. but have insisted that it should still more abound in trophies w’hich commemorate the enforcement of even handed justice and the maintenance of that equal opportunity which spreads hope and blessing even to the humblest home. Since the day when, less than thirty years of age, Mr. Taft denounced with burning w’ords a member of his profession who had been guilty of flagrantly vicious ! practices and had demoralized the community he has ever been associated with the cause of true reform— ! with that reform which will not content itself with academic dissertation 1 or hollow words. He has been imbued 1 with the spirit of action. His advocacy ! of sounder conditions has never arisen j from a desire for the exploitation of himself. It has always been based upon unswerving integrity and the courage to speak the truth as he understands it on all occasions, no. mat- DOCTORS MISTAKES Are said often to be buried six feet under ground. But many times women call on their family physicians, suffering, as they imagine, one from dyspepsia, another from heart disease, another from liver or kidney disease, another from nervous prostration, another with pain here and there, and in this way they present alike to themselves and their easy-going or over-busy doctor, separate diseases, for which he, assuming them to be such, prescribes his pills and potions. In reality, they are all only symptoms caused by some uterine disease. The'ptv^ician,'Ignorant of the cause of suffer ingTfcvPS upniaAreatment until large bills are irade.

As judge in state and federal courts, as solicitor general, as governor of the Philippines, as secretary of war, which has included the work of colonial secretary and director of national public works, he has received his training and has always shown Himself master of the situation and competent to make more honorable and beloved the American name. There have been no years of inaction in his career. He had been continuously engaged in weighty tasks and each successive service has been characterized by an increasing influence upon most vital questions. ♦ “In our domestic affairs in whatever position he has held he has displayed the rare union of a judicial temperament with an unsurpassed gift for administrative management. To him be-, longs the extremely valuable faculty of eliminating the nonessential from ' complicated problems and going directly to their substance. His capacity for work is enormous, yet quite as helpful is his equable temperament, which will not allow the annoyances of life to distract or hamper him. Although of an aggressive personality, he possesses an infinite good nature, a charm of manner and a poise which have made him a model for exalted station. In the final analysis even the highest officials must be judged as men, and under this criterion Secretary Taft is now and will ever bi known for his broad sympathies with every grade ot humanity and as one invariably actuated by that democratic spirit which should characterize a progressive American. And yet no one can for a moment hesitate to recognize his severity in dealing with wrongdoing. While no honest enterprise need fear him, no dishonest scheme could hope to hide its face from the light or to escape punishment. “More than any other of our public men he has had to do with our outlying dependencies and colonial relations. It was he who took In charge the prosecution of that colossal enterprise on the isthmus, the canal uniting the lesser and the greater oceans, and under his directing hand the completion of this most stupendous of public works is no longer a vague and distant hope, but an imminent reality. With his ever ready skill as a pacificator, he restored tranquillity in the fertile island of Cuba, so often distracted by civil strife. In the faroff Philippines, under a blazing tropical sky, he found a people of many races and tribes, degraded by centuries of misrule and oppression, and there, too, he not only established the rule of law and local control in place of confusion and bloody strife, but showed th* way to self government and a new recognition of the rights of man, for peoples and races, like individuals, under the inspiration of a friendly guide, may lift their faces heavenward and seek to climb the great world’s altar stairs to nobler heights of liberty and opportunity. It is to his lasting honor that his desire was not to be know*n as “Taft the preconsul,” but as “Taft the father of the Filipinos,” who brought to them the light of modern civilization. “In the larger sphere of world politics we are entering into new* and closer bonds with all the nations of the earth. Who is better qualified than he to lead America to her true position in this later day when the boundaries established in the centuries past are becoming less distinct and kingdoms and races are beginning to realize that they have all one common destiny? “Secretary Taft has exceptional familiarity with conditions in the distant Orient—in Japan, in China. We may rest assured that our traditional friendship w*ith Japan will continue. Moreover, the future promises that the slumbering millions of China will awake from the lethargy of ages, and she then will realize that the morning dawn of fresher life and wider outlook comes to her across the broad Pacific from free America, her truest friend and helper. We covet no portion cf her territory. We desire from her, as from all nations, increased good will and that mutual respect which knows neither bluster nor cringing on either side. Thus in this new era of larger relations Secretary Taft, with his comprehension of national and international subjects, w’ould furnish a certainty of peace and sustained prestige. Under him, at home and everywhere, this mighty people would have an assured confidence in the secure development and progress of the country and w*ould rest safe in the reliance that a chief executive was at the helm who in peace or in war w*ould guide the destinies of the nation with a strong hand and with a gentle, patriotic heart. “And so today, in the presence of more than ten thousand and w*ith the inspiring thought of the wrell nigh ten thousand times ton thousand who dwell within our borders, I nominate for the presidency that perfect type of American manhood, that peerless representative of the noblest ideals in our national life, William H. Taft of Ohio.”ATTEMPT TO EXTORT MONEY Wealthy Wine Dealer Resents the Continued Demands of a Blackmailing Gang and Uses His Rifle With Deadly Effect. New* Orleans, June 18.—Following a series of crimes attributed to socalled “Black Hand” societies in the Italian quarter of New Orleans one of the w’orst tragedies yet connected with that section took place when three Italians were shot to death. According to the police these men were killed as a result of an attempt to extort money from Pietro Giaeona, a wealthy Italian wine merchant. Gia-cona and his son told the police that these men had frequently bought wine from them by the barrel and had invariably refused to pay for it. According to their story the three forced them to ship a barrel of wine to a point in Louisiana and then ordered them lo prepare a meal. The elder Giaeona suspected that trouble would ensue and hid a repeating rifle near the table. When one of the visiting Italians drew* a heavy revolver and ordered them to produce money and valuables the elder Gia-cona answered with a shot from the rifle. The man he fired at fell dead and the other two attempted to escape. One w*as killed before he had gotten ten feet from the table. The other reached a staircase, only to receive a bullet in his brain as he started down the steps, his body falling into the courtyard below. Only one of the Italians who wras killed has been identified as a man named Barraca, known to the police.CAMPING IN THE PARKS. Steerage Passengers Unable to Get Aboard Outgoing Vessel. New York, June 18.—More than a thousand persons holding steerage tickets for European ports w*ere left behind by the steamer Potsdam when she sailed with her steerage quarters filled to the capacity of 2,000. The thousand who were unable to find accommodations in the ship were assured that they would be taken on the next outgoing steamer, but many of them made determined efforts to get on board the Potsdam. They were held in check, however, by a large force of policemen who had been summoned to the pier. Many of the prospective passengers have little or no money beyond what will be required to get them to their homes and it is likely that they will remain in one of Hoboken’s parks, where they are now* camped, until the next steamer sails.STAIRWAYS SET ON FIRE. Go to J. C. Madsen for plumbing, steam and hot water heating. Two Hundred Lives Imperiled in New York Tenement. New York, June IS.—The lives of 200 persons were imperilled by an incendiary who made a futile attempt to burn a big tenement house in Stanton street. The stairways from the ground to the roof had been saturated with kerosene and the torch had been applied on the lower floor, but one of the tenants returning home late saw* the blaze and sent an alarm through the house. Two hundred men, women and children tumbled hurriedly out of their beds and rushed to the street in scant attire, while a policeman and several helpers checked the incipient blaze with buckets of water. The fire was extinguished before much damage had been done and within a few* minutes the frightened tenants were back in their apartments. This attempt to burn the house was the second within tw*o months. Radicals Want independence. Manila, June 18.—The Radical members of the assembly are again endeavoring to secure the introduction of an immediate independence resolution. The Conservatives are opposing the proposition and will probably head It off. Should it reach the floor Speaker Osmena will likely rule adversely to the matter on the ground that the extra session has been called for certain and specified purposes. Russia Plans Internal Loan. St. Petersburg, June IS.—Finance Minister Kokovsoff has introduced in the duma a bill authorizing the immediate issue of an infernal loan of $100,-300,000 to cover the deficit in the 190S budget and other expenditures that cannot be deferred. The money is to be applied in part as follows:    Fifty million dollars to the deficit, $8,000,000 to famine relief and $30,000,000 to the ministries of war and marine.
