WILL FOLLOW IN TEDDY'S STEPS Tb't Was the Gist of Taft's Speech of Acceptance At Cincinnati Maine Short Retorttri Watch It as It Thraihct Itstlf to Death on the Cincinnati, 0., July Howard Taft today accepted the Re- publican presidential nomination. His official notification combined a political jubilee for the city of Cin- cinnati and a historical gathering of the national party leaders and the reason for the announcement by the candidate of the political tenets de- signed as the issue of the Republican oratory throughout the campaign. In his sp-jech Mr. Taft said in part: "For more than ten years the coun- try passed through an fore he had opened his mouth on the matter. Regarding the question "What is an Independent Conserva- he referred the Editor to the editorial column of his oww paper in its reference io the candidacy of Rev. D. C. Hossack. A man should be independent because the cry of the land is for more independence. He "dees not have to tie himself to any pnrcy. In England politicians hiiv'c their party but are left alone, tbis country they are branded as villians. The speaker said he was not a p litlcian versed in all political issues and that he was not after the office and did not want it but a man who would not respond to the call of his fellow citizens to serve them was no better than a coyote!

They had to chase after Indians and others or lose their crops as they had done during the last year, if Mr. Harold could supply" the labor when wanted they would not get Japs to do it. D. Quigley asked cone rning the bounty asked for by the sugar com- pany giving as their reason that they had to compete against Oriental la- bor. If they are reaping the benefit of Asiatic labor, should they still get the bounty? In reply the speaker -said that he believed that the Vancouver factory was a great monopoly, combining with the Montreal firms in the di- vision of territory. They resented tin- interference of the Raymond factory nd cut the price in this part of the ountry so that the latter felt that liey had to have protection if the ndustry were to live. It takes a )opulation of ten thousand to supply abor to keep a sugar factory running vhich population is not around the Raymond factory. T he people of Raymond will bear out his statements n this regard. He did not endorse the employment of Oriental, he was opposed to it, but what could be done. Another gentleman asked if this was his own view or that of the Con- servative party. Mr. Magrath stated that it was his own view. He had not discussed it with Mr. Borden. Refering the question to Mr. Ives who was also on the platform, the latter stated: Mr. Border's policy with regard to Oriental, labor in British Columbia. Jas.
