which was scheduled to lane place
here today has lieon postponed until
Soptot.:!;.- 21 owing to thu Inability of
Govcrno- "unuulns of Iowa and Sen-
ator Foraker of Ohio to bo presont.
They were to have opened the cam-
paign with "keynote" speeches.
Democrats are exultant claiming
Senator Foraker and Governor Cum-
mins b;th known to be not overly
frlondly to air. Taft were ordered to
Kansas becauso the stato Republican
platform declared for tho bank deposit
guarantee law after Mr. Taft had spok-
en against It.
Efforts by stalwarts to recall Invita-
tion to Senator Foraker .bavo so far
been unavailing. It Is believed Sena-
tor Forakor will announce Mb Approval
