(Special to The Caucasian.)
Washington, D. C, April 11.
President Taft made a notable speech
before the annual meeting of the In
terstate Republican Clubs held here
on last Saturday night.
It had been announced that the
President would make a keynote
speech for opening a campaign to
elect a Republican Congress. In his
opening remarks, the President said
that this announcement was a mis
take; that a keynote speech for the
campaign would have to be made af
ter Congress adjourned, for such a
speech would have to be based upon
the record which Congress had made
in redeeming the pledges made by
the party in the last campaign. He
said that if the party kept its pledges
it would win; if it did not, it would
Who Are True Republicans?
Then turning to the Congressmen
and Senators seated at the banquet
table around him, he said to them
that they must prove within the next
few weeks who were Republican and
who were not Republican. He said
that he would not himself undertake
to read any one out of the party, but
that those who failed to vote to carry
out the party's pledges would read
themselves out of the party.
His speech was an appeal to the
members, of Congress, whether regu-
ars or insurgents, to redeem party
pledges so as to enable the party to
successfully appeal to the voters of
the country for endorsement. The
speech was enthusiastically received
and he was given a great ovation.
One of the leading insurgents in
Congress said to-day that the Presi
dent's speech not only showed that
he did not want to read them out of
the party, but that he would endorse
their position if they stood for party
pledges, and would condemn the reg
ulars or reactionaries if they failed
to do likewise. To-day, a statement,!
was given out from the so-called in
surgents to the effect that they could
be depended upon to vote for and
support every measure recommend
ed by the President for carrying out
the campaign pledges, and they pre
dicted that a number of the so-called
regulars, who they say are in fact re
actionaries, would try to defeat such
measures, and that therefore the
resident would have to read these
so-called regulars out of the party
after Congress adjourned if they pre
vented the passage of any of the Taft
Roosevelt's Courage and Diplomacy.
The action of President Roosevelt
n refusing to call upon the Pope
under the conditions prescribing his
other calls and actions while in
Rome, has not only attracted the at
tention of the whole world and been
the subject of comment in everv
and, but has been the overshadow
ng question of interest in the na
tional capital. ,
The general opinion here, as else
where, is that the Pope was badly
advised, and everywhere President
Roosevelt's course has been general-
y approved. The President's state;
ment following the unfortunate inci
dent deprecating the bitter contro
versy that might grow therefrom and
in making an appeal for religious tol
erance has struck a responsive chord
with Catholics as well as Protest
The prompt and courageous man
ner in which President Roosevelt
met this most delicate situation in
Rome has served to emphasize his
action in the speech at Khartum in
boldly advising the natives not to be
too hasty in attempting to change
their present governmental condi
tions, and also his still more bolder
speech at the Egyptian University in
Cairo in denouncing the action of the
Egytian Nationalists in recently as
sassinatmg their Prime Minister.
These speeches of Colonel Roosevelt
have been applauded In America as
well as over the civilized world gen
erally, and have all served to revive
to an acute stage the discussion of
the future political course of the
President when he returns to the
See the Patronage Machine Boss.
It is reported here that a few days
ago a delegation of prominent North
Carolina business men of a certain
thriving city came to Washington
and called upon one of the Depart
ments of the Government to present
a matter of no little Interest to the
(people of their town and commun
Ity. Whereupon, it waa suggested to
them by a certain government official
that they had txstter see the referee
of North Carolina about the matter
and get hU approval.
It Is reported that on member of
this delegation, who haB always
been a Democrat, but who had voted
for Taft at the last election, express
ed himself in a vigorous manner af
terwards to th effect that he had
voted for Taft. not only because he
believed general that the Republi
can policies were best for the State
and the country, but especially be
cause the President had announced
that the old rotten referee system
of the South should be abolished and
that the wishes of the people In each
community should be respected by

Representative Morehead has in

a mouument to ihe memory of Gen.
Greene and others who participated
in the last fight at Guilford Battle
Ground; also $25,000 for the gen
eral betterment and improvement of
the grounds. President Morehead,
of the Battle Ground Company, says
he has strong hopes that the meas

other day and the first information
concerning his action came this
morning to President Morehead, a
copy of the bill, which has been
printed being sent to him.
The passage of this bill, should he
succeed in getting it through, will
stand as a monument to his memory
and be worth more than repeated

Jackson, Miss, April 7. The Sen
atorial investigation into the bribery
scandal was continued until a late
hour to-night. The star witness was
the 'mysterious woman." Mrs. C. J.
Neil, who swears that she arranged
the meeting between Senator Bilbo
and Delancy. When asked her busi
ness, she replied: "Book-keeping,
handling real estate and selling Mis
sissippi Democratic Senators." She
described how she introduced Bilbo
to Delaney; how the latter told her
to feel out "the weak legislators,"
and see if they could "be reached."
Senators Banks and Tucker made
frantic efforts to lay hands upon one
another during the Senatorial brib
ery investigation late to-day, and a
personal encounter between the an
gry, shouting men was only averted
by strenuous work on the part of
fellow-Senators. Tucker, who is coun
sel for Senator Bilbo, angered by the
use of the shorter and uglier word,
rushed at Banks. Baraks, white with
anger, rushed towards Tucker. Oth
er Senators intervened and roughly
pulled the men apart.
The quarrel came suddenly and
unexpectedly. I. C. Dulaney. charg
ed by Senator Bilbo with having paid
him a bribe, had been on the stand.
He had denied the charge flatly and
was be'Mfcross-examined by Senator
Tucker of counsel for Senator Bilbo.
Warrants were issued from the
sheriff's office to-day for the arrest
of "Private" John Allen, of Tupelo
County; Representaive Charles Do-

ator Charles P. Engle, of Natchez;
Hon. Sam Ham, of Clarksdale. and

American Tobacco and Standard Oil
Suits to Be Re-argued.
Washington, D. C, April 11. Un
willing at this time to render de
cisions in the dissolution suits against
the Standard Oil and the so-called
Tobacco Trust," the Supreme Court
of the United States to-day ordered
a re-argument of these cases. This
postpones the final disposition of the
application of the Sherman Anti-
Trust Law to these corporations for
weeks and probably utnil after next
October. The present term will end
about June 1st.
It is believed the court will not
advance the cases for re-argument
until President Taft has been given
ample time to fill the vacancy creat
ed by the death of Justice Brewer.
Educate the Boys and the Democratic
Party Will Grow Out of Existence.
The News and Observer says the
boys are being educated and that's
the reason the Democratic party
grows in North Carolina." But, say,
Josephus, why didn't you tell us
which way the Democratic party is
growing in North Carolina? Why
didn't you tell us that It has grown
from a majority of 60,000 in 1900
down to 20,000 In 1908, and this, too,
during a period when there was more
schools and better schools than was
ever known before In the history of
the State. It will not take long at the
present rate for the Democratic party
to grow clean out of existence. Yes,
educate the boys and the Democratic
party will soon go out of business.
The Trusts Not Skeered."
The Republicans are making it
warm for the trusts up North, but
the Democrats down here in North
Carolina won't even make an at
tempt to bring suit against the
trusts. You see, beloved, that the
Democrats think they can play a
bluff game by having Josephus to
keep up a whine about the trusts.
but the trusts know that they are
in no danger as long as the Demo
crats stay in control. The trusts are
not a bit "skeered." Clinton News-
