What Will le Say?
Mr. Taft cannot bolt the Re
publicani ticket, but the question
is, will he not bolt the Republi
can platform, especially thc
plank relating to injunctions
It is said that the injunctio'
plank is not in the shape h<
wanted- it,- and it is probabli
that in his speech accepting th<
nomination for president he wil
have something to say regard
ing the matter. Ho claims tha
workingmen misunderstand h4
position, and if Ie attempts t<
set himself right lie must neces.
sarily repudiate that plank in
the platform of his party, since
it is clearly a straddle and ieans
absolutely nothing for labor.
If such is Mr. Taft's intention
he has a difficult task before
hin, in which he is bound tc
fail in bettering his cause. His
claim for the suffrages of work
ingmen will not be judged by
his personal views and promnises
as now stated, but by the declar
ations of the platform on which
he 18 runnIng and his previous
record as a federal judge. Peo
ple wvill be quick to perceive that
there is no difference between
the so-called anti-injunction
plank and injunction Judge
Taft, and It is not likely that
they will. now consider his be
lated conversion to anti-injunc
tion ideas as of much value, oven
though those ideas should be In
direct antagonism to his previous
record and to the declaration of
his party regarding Injunctions.
The only way In whi~ch 4NMy,
Taft could convince the country
of his since-rity would be foi~hi
to decline the nomination be
cause of that plank'so devoid of
the relief asked for y the labor

Up to the beginning of Decem
ber 918,006 crates of rabbits,
totaling about 23.000 tons, had
been received in London during
1907, and the market for mutton
was never so ,bad as it is now.
It is the. fostering of the 'rabbit
industry which decimates -tho
rastoral industry. Between
"e3e two there can be no com
promise. It is sheep or rabbits.

Outside of Buenos Ayres there

Miss Cora Croker, a deaf,
dumb and blind girl, just 21, has
surprised her teachers in the
workshops of the Massachusetts
commission for the blind, in
Cambridge, by the quickness
with which she has mastered
the intricate machinery of her
loom and the beauty and deli
cacy of her work.
With the odor of postoffices,
consulships, collectorships and a
whole passel of such blessings
in their nostrils, the Democrats
can but smile when they think
that it is but. 116 days until
William J. Bryan will be elected
president of the United States.
