The nomination was made unanimous. Rosevelt Gets the News Washington, June upon receiving news of the nomina tion of Secretary Taft for the presi- dency, President Roosevelt said: "I feel that the country is indeed to be congratulated upon ihe nomination of Taft. I have known him intimately ior many years and I have a peculiar feeling for him because throughout that time we have worked for the same object with the same purpose and ideals. I do not believe there can be in the whole country a man so well fitted to be president. He is not only absolutely fearless, absolute- ly disinterested and upright, but he has the widest acquaintance with the nations. He would be as emphatical- ly president of the plain people as Lincoln, yet not Lincoln himself would be freer from the least taint of dema gogery, the least tendency to arouse or appeal to class hatrid of any kind. He has a peculiar and intimate know- and sympathy with the heads of all Europe, of the farmer, of the wage worker, of the business man and of the property owner. No matter what a man's occupation or social position, no matter what his creed, his or the section of the country from which lie comes, if he is an honest hard working man who tries to do his- duty toward his neighbor and toward the country, he can rest assured tha't he will have in Mr. Taft the most- upright representative, and tiie most flawless of champions. Mr. Taft stands against privilege and he. pre-eminently for the broad principle of American citizenship, which lie at the foundation of our national well- being." The Official Record Chicago, June president of the United States, Wm. H. Taft of Ohio, on the first ballot by 702 votes Taft by unanimous choice oi the con- vention of 1903. Foraker Stands by the Party Washington, June the convention made a nomination everv Republican had a right to have his said Senator Foraker tonight after hearing of the nomination of Secretary Taft for the presidency "But now it is no longer a question of men but a question of party. In this way the secretary becomes my candi- date for the presidency and while un- der all the circumstances I can pro- bably do little yet I shall do all I can to help elect him. Republicans will now quit themselves and quarrelling among turn all their >guns on the common enemy." A Roosevelt Victory London, June news of Secretary Taft's nomination for the presidency, was too late for editorial comment in the morninb papers with the exception of the Times which says: "It is the greatest and most, striking of all Roosevelt's victories By the unflinching exertions of his personal will, President Roosevelt de feated the undoubted will of the Re- jpublican party and what is hardly- less certain, the will of the American people. He has chosen to sacrifice his personal ambition to his sense of duty as a citien.

(Special to the Herald) Taber, June i impressive' service over the remains of the late Mrs. Mary Furman, wife of Mr. Char- lie Furman, were held at the family residence this afternoon, commencing at 2 o'clock. A large number- of re- latives and sympathising friends were in attandence. The obsequies were- conducted by the Rev. J. R. Monroe, who spoke feelingly of the dead and' offered words of comfort 'to the living. Music for the occasion was conducted by Mr. Alex Primrose. What makes it appear more sad is that she is a young mother, only 13 years of age, leaving a son two months old. Mrs. Furman is the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Snowden, of Taber. Two brothers and two sisters survive her. A large cortege of car- riages followed the hearse to the cem- etery, where the mortal remains were lowered to their final resting place and entombed in mother earth.
