Rockefeller Jr and Frank B Kellogg who has been pros recuting the governments inquiry y irito the Standard Oil company were near neighbors though not at the same table Andrew Carnegie and John Mitchell sat side by side The notable throng of men and women brought together by the fed eration led Mr Taft who was the principal speaker of the evening to remark that he had been sitting with company with which it hardly would have been well for him to associate pror to the election He then declared amid cheers that all that had happened befors the election was as a closed book to him and he would be the president of all tne people Mr Taft was the last of eight speakers Those who preceded him were Mr Low who acted as toast master and Messrs Mitchell Gom k ers Carnegie Belmont Ingalls and arretson Mr Taft spoke entirely Extemporaneously and briefly Much had been said during the evening concerning the problem of the twilight zone where state rule ends and federal authority begins The Sherman antitrust law also had been attacked by Mr Ingalls who Assailed it as an antiquated measure which should be entirely driven from the statute books Mr Taft came to the rescue of the Sherman law and said while he believed with others that certain amendments were necessary he would be opposed to any attempt at its repeal After the twi light zone and Its problems Mr Taft declared the country had gotten along very well under the constitution and he believed it would con tinue to find that instrument allwise and Indispensable Among other things Mr Taft said that he believed that laborers on the one hand an capitalists on the other have equal rights of organization for the protection of their own interests He believed that in this way and through these organizations they r could meet on level ground neither at arms length nor one at the mercy of the other INSURGENTS DESERT r Representatives Refuse to Enthuse Over Rule Revision Washington Dec 17 Except for a few moments

Ends New York Sojourn at Banquet New York Dec IT Bringing his stay in New York toa close Presi dentelect William H Taft was the guest of honor at one of the most notable banquets ever held in this city It was the twentyChird annual dinner of the Ohio society in New York but around the 100 tables placed in the grand ballroom inAstor gallery of the WaldorfAstoria hotel were men gathered from every sec tion of the country and leaders in many walks of life Mr Taft took advantage of the oc casion in a speech filled with mor- eearnestess than any he has delivered since his election to pledge his administration and his party so far as he can control it toa loyal rd herence to the Chicago platform He dwelt almost wholly upon the re vision of the tariff which he sin ldd out as the most Important declara tion mode at the last national con vention and after laving previously referred to the veto power of the chief executive said with al the em phasis of which be was capably Better no revision at all hotter that the new bill should far unless we have an honest and thorough revision on the basis laid down and the principle outlined in the party plat form Mr Taft also referred again to the Sherman antitrust law and declared for its enforcement as one of the Roosevelt policies that the party had pledged itself to carry forward In assuming the duties as toast master Henry Taft declared it was the custom for presiding officers to eulogize the guest of honor For obvious reasons he contin ued you will pardon me if I do not say much on that subject However I feel it is within the bounds of deli cacy for me to say that I have been observing his career for the past 40 years and I have formed quite a fa vorable opinion of his character But I will not go further for what the other speakers have to say of him will probably be about all that it is good for him to hear Toastmaster Taft called attention to the fact that during the last 40 years New York and Ohio had fur nished all the occupants of the White House Had Presidents Garfield and McKinley filled the terms to which they were elected Ohio would have had the distinction of having furnished presidents for 28
