United States, In (lib opinion of not

during tho extra Besslnn, and although

was Clark who planned many of the.
strategic moca made hy the Hour
There nro many Democrats In Ha
waii, and Homo of the local people
who go to Washington know Clark
nod think he Is a natural leader.
His public life Is an open book, but
little Is known of his private life.
This, however, shows him In some
of his most delightful moments. i
A recent Interviewer found Clark
In a confidential mood, willing to dis
cuss nil torts of things. The inter
viewer tells about It as follows:
MRS. CHAMP CLARK
Plain but All Womanly.
"Tho trust magnates caro nothing
whatever for any lines which havo
been, or will be, Imposed. They can
turn right around and shift n fine
from their own shoulders to the
shoulders of tho consumers by a llttlo

teach them nny lesson of Importanco
except to put tho guilty Into prison."
llo shut his lips together tightly,
rind, wbllo they aro not especially
nun .tips, nc can shut them tight
enough' to make them seem .extremely
thin, At such times Champ Clark's
mouth nouns very stern almost Im
placable. 'Thoro Is n light In his eyes
and n sweetness In hU smile, amount
ing on most occasions almost to
benevolence, which Indicate at onco
that ho can bo a very faithful friend.

He rose to greet the youngster, and
while he stood smiling down at him
some of tho really great tnerf of his
party entered and began a hurried,
confidential consultation with him.
He talked with them, hut ho kept his
eyes mostly on the baby boy, wbllo It
was plain enough that his grown call
ers were wincing at the youngster's
antics. He did not tell tho lad to
stop stubbing things with that tin
sword. Once or twice, when he gat
charmingly. When the boy had tired himself,

went Into the little room which Is his

That baby boy has' now been gone
almost a quarter of a century, yet
every dny ho thinks of him! No man
was ever moro devoted to bis chil
dren, and bis love for them Is big
enough to 'take In nlso every other

After the boy had left us onco more

' "Tho Increase of wages has ,not

Is most unfortunate. Wages have In

Sympathizers Say Defeat Is
Better Than Compromise
.Campaign Is Already On In
BY C. S. ALBERT.
( KMclal II ii 1 1 o 1 1 n Correspondence. )
Washington, d. c, sept 1. The
breach. In tho Republican party, which
has been gradually widening ever
since Senator La Follcttc entered, the
Upper Ilranch of Congress and bo
came a Progressive, has now been
materially enlarged and' rendered
more ' dangerous. President Taft's
speech at Hamilton, Mass., In which
he attacked the 'Republican Insurg
ents and Democrats, has laid the
foundation for' the' most bitter strug
gle the, Republican party has known
for years. Hia assault came as a
complcto surprise. It was expected
lie would continue his policy of neu
trality nnd permit 'the Insurcehts to
maintain 'their' own position!1' Instead;

party pale and should be destroyed.
No medium ground is now left and
the fight must continue.
Nearly all leading Republicans
sharply criticise the President for be
ginning' a war, with the Progressives
on the eve of a National election. A
few of tho moro radical epprovo tho
course, saying It Is better to be de
feated' than compromlEj with tho In

ened headquarters In this city. W. L.

propogandii of education will at onco
bii made 'effective; Literature will bo

detailed to all the close States. The
chief purpose' of tho movement Is to
prevent tho rcnoralnation of Mr. Taft.
Although Senator' La Folletto la now,

Wisconsin, Mlnncsotn, North Dakota,
Oklahoma, California, Washington,
Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota,
Montana, Oregon and Iowa. Aggres
sive fights will also bo made In In

for ro-nomlnntlon there Is a sugges
tion they will bolt the ticket to a suf
ficient' extent to throw those Indicat
ed States Into the Democratic column,
thereby preventing the Republicans
from continuing Mr. Taft In office. It
seems certain this will ho dope It the
prevailing bitter feeling develops as

to President Taft's 'criticism of the

Altogether, tho family-row appears
to bo on among the Republicans. It
Is self-evident somebody will be hurt
