man who fired a revolver at the colonel in an
attempt to cut short the career of the third-term
candidate is the man who will elect him.

Sir: Latt Saturday evening I at
tended a political meeting of tn Re
publicans at Aala Park. In fact
bare been doing tbe same thing at
every election for a number of years.
A I ntild like to know if there is
Vxly in tbia. city who can tell me
v uf we citizens should be compelled
j hike clear down through all kinds
of smells, stinks, mud and corruption
to' Aala Park to listen to arguments
on the political questions of the day,
uhen we hare Thomas 'Saqpa re with
the same facilities for speakers and
audience, where at least, the al we
breathe is laden with odors other
than soy and marsh mud.
The man who attends two political
meetings at Aala Park in succession is
a martyr to the cause he Relieves in.
Try Thomas Square once and there
will be no need to "bring the ladies,"
they will come without bringing.

American breasts. Jle is again tie hero of 8stn

and with his marvellous aptitude for doing. the
dramatic thing, for Baying the pungent sentence,
the sentence "with the ' punch, -he " turned
the situation , to, extraordinary account; This

a photographer's flashlight exploded in his face,
he 'exclaimed, "Gosh I V phpt again !" and this
humorous comment as he walked into a hospital
with a bullet in his shoulder Mil be seen in a
thousand headlines, will, figure in a thousand
campaign speeches. . ;
It is peculiar and yet characteristic of Amer
ica's regard for Roosevelt that as. soon as it was
learned 1 his injuries erM only slight and that
he had insisted on finishing his speech, many
people were ready, to declare the entire incident
"framed up''.' s If so, it Vouiifbe the greatest
press agent "stunt" ever attempted.' Of course,
this idea is far-fetched, almost unthinkable. In
Honoluluthe idea is freely expressed, but probably-not
really believed. vBut howtypical it is

lest it should never again be possible to close the

Germany are no more anxious; to see the tariff
lowered,; especially to ' English and American
competition, than : arej thej agrarians. ( On the
other handj; chambers of commerce lerchants,
guilds and other associations representing small
tradesmen, as well as the - syndicates and mil

or suspension of the tariff. The Bei'lin mer

and urgent appeal to the government urging the
removal of the duty on American bacon.
Somehow people can't take, seriously what
might have been a terrible tragedy in American
public lifei The' reaction from the" strain of the
first; few minutes, when it was not known how
seriously: Roosevelt was hurti made the deed 'of
a crazed assassin ' seem almost ludicrous. That
a man should attempt murder because of a third
