TAFT WAVE IS RISING.
president's Campaign Manager
Gets Opinions From All
Over tlio Country.
"T. H.'S BUBBLE PUNCTURED"
rrotocllon and rrosperlty Is
fiitcs Arc Coining to the
Fore, They Declare.
Charles D. Wiles, Tift campaign man
ager, recently asked several Bute Re
"publlcan chairman for 'their deliberate
judgment a to the progress of Mr. Taft'a
campaign up to the present time. Mr.
Hlllea Mid yesterday that the replies
so far reoelved are uniformly hopeful
and that the majority are 'extremely
"Each of them, he said, 'confirms the
statements contained in scores of letters
from men In all walks of life and all parts
of the country that the 'Taft wave' is
unmistakable; that the Roosevelt bubble
has long ago been punctured and that as
between a Republican and a Democratic
administration for the next four years,
the voters have determined to stand
by the Republican party and prosperity."
Mr. HUlcn's replies from the State
chairmen were. In part:
Warren O. Phllbrook, Maine:
The political situation in Maine has under
gone a material chanun within the last two
or three week. The first furious outburst
In favor of the tlilnl term movement has
spent its force. Many ltepuhllcan sup
porters of Mr. Roosevelt before he an
nounced the birth of a new party and his
determination to destroy the Republican
party will not follow him and are declaring
their allegiance to President Taft. I ex
pect Malno to give a good account of herself
In the Jsovember election.
James 8. Lakin, West Virginia:
The situation In West Virginia to-day I
as different rrom that of three weeks ago
at is night from day. The protection and
prosperity Issues have come to the front
most aggressively within the last ten days.
The four Democratic Congressmen elected
In the landslide of two years ago are now
on the defensive, crowded Into a comer
and fighting for their political lives. I
believe we shall win back these districts
and elect a solid Republican delegation
to Congress. 1 believe that President Taft
will carry the State by a majority some
what below that which he received four
years ago. We expect the entire Republican
ticket to be elected.
On the legislative ticket we have a hard
tight, hut expect to win. The entli
strength of the Democratic organization U
centred on this part of the contest, and
here we are compelled to meet Senator
Watson with his vast wealth, vast Interests
and corporation allies. The scandal that
attended his election, however, has not been
forgotten and the people seem determined
to rid West Virginia of Watson and his
organization, and hundreds of Democrats
are openly declaring their opposition to him
and his candidates.
James 8. Beasley. Tennessee:
President Taft's chances to carry Tennes
see are constantly Improving, notwithstand
ing the trip of fol, Roosevelt through the
State, Col. KooMvelt's violent abuse of
Ciov. Hooper has Injured Mr. Roosevelt but
ba not hurt the Governor.
J. H. Roraback, Connecticut:
Connecticut is a Taft State, and a grfat
majority of its voters are umiuestlonablv
In favor of a protective tariff as against
free trade or "tariff for revenue only",
and If these lsues had been the only ones
before the people there would not be the
slightest doubt as to the result In this State.
Tho disappointed personal ambitions of
Col. Roosevelt, nnd the formation of a new
party to gratify him. Injected a new ques
tion Into the Connecticut situation, and for
a time It was diUmlt to unnlys-o probable
The political atno.phere, however. Is
He'rinc as the people rap the real Issues.
Ti. Jirlv doubts a to the success of Pre-d-dent
Taft In the State are disappearing.
Connecticut teems almost certain to go
for Taft and the entire Republican State
ticket, and four if not all five Republican
Edmund W. Wnkelee, New Jersey:
From all parts of New Jersey word Is
cominc that there Is a decided drift In Presi
dent TaftV favor This condition mani
fested itself when the Repulill' ns gathered
at the State fair in Trenton on f "day known
as "politicians' day," when reports of con
ditions were exchanged A month ago
those men felt some uncertainty as to the
, outcome. To-day a new spirit seems to
posies them They brought word of a
steadj trend of sentiment toward President
In no class of voters In the State Is senti
ment changing so rapidly as among the
commuters These are business men from
New ork and Philadelphia. In their ex
treme opposition to Col. Roosevelt, a few
weeks ago many of them had made up their
minds to vote for (iov Wilson, on the theory
that President Taf t had little chance of being
e.!eMed, and in order to thoroughly ex
tinguish Kooseu'lt. They are no longer
raid nf Roosovelt, and as between Taft
and W ilson, they stand for Taft and the con
tinuance of national prosperity.

Senator Joseph M. Dixon, the Roose
velt campaign manager, and Henry F.
Cochems, head of the Progressive
speakers bureau, collaborated yesterday
on what they call "an answer to the at
tack by Woodrow Wilson on Theodore
Itoosevelt at Indianapolis on Thursday
They say thnt "Mr. Wilson has grown
Increasingly bold because Col. Itoose
velt, desiring to pitch this campaign
upon tho high ground of principle, has
refrained from discussing Mr. Wilson's
This In part Is the Dlxon-Cochems
After persistent attacks upon Col.
Roosevelt Woodrow Wilson at Indian
apolis charged him deliberately with re
sponsibility for the existence of the trusts
and monopolies In this country. Trior to
this In a left handed assault at Sioux
City and Minneapolis he had charged by
plain Implication that as President,
Roosevelt In the benzoate of soda matter
had protected the canners of putrlfled
foods by deliberate fraud. Later at Syra
cuse he Intimated that becauto of cam
paign funds Iluosevelt had been a creature
of the United States Steel Company, and
then Mr. Wilson used that basis to assert
that United States Steel was a non-union
corporation, seeking thereby to provo
Roosevelt was an enemy to the principles
For two years Mr. Wilson has been
Governor of the State of New Jersey and
boasts of hts control of a reform legisla
ture. Nlnety-tlve per cent, of the preda
tory trusts and monopolies of the United
States, Including the Standard Oil Com
pany, sugar trust, the American Tobacco
Company nnd United States Steel Com
pany, have their homes In the Btato of
New Jersey nnd enjoy from New Jersey
ths charter which alone permits them to
carry on their business In forty-eight
States of the Union. Their factories and
business are not In New Jersey.
Every day since Mr. Wilson has been
Governor he and his legislature have had
the power under the law to drive every
dishonest trust from New Jersey, to com
pel an amendment to Its charter or to
qualify Its articles of organization. Dur
Ing those two years he has not uttered
a word In public or private. He has not
raised a linger. He has not whispered
against this brutal Injustice by which Is
sheltered every crooked and offensive trust
In the United States.
What Is the reason? It Is because, as
shown by the State Treasurer's report of
the State of New Jersey, these trusts nnd
monopolies pay Into the treasury of New
Jersey over $6,000,000 a year In fees for
the privilege of deriving their right to do
business und to prey upon the other States
of the Union,
The people of the United States are en
titled to know from this distinguished gen
tleman why he has maintained silence If It
Is not because this filthy stream of cor
poration f frm ninnntirtH.. nnl
legalized but shelt.-ied In the State of New
Jersey has (lowed Into tho State treasury.
The phrase In tho business world Is
"New Jersey Is the mother of trusts." It
required courage to exercise this power
because to cut oft this stream of wealth
from New Jersey was to compel the people,
of New Jersey to maintain their own Statu
Kovernnient Instead of being relieved from
general State taxes as they are tx-cause of
this tainted fund This fact If known to
the people would make utterly Impossible
the candidacy of a man who as Governor
of the State his remained silent while he
his full powei to control these trusts, and
who professln a position of State's rights
would foreclose his power as President to
control the trusts which he has declined
to attempt the control of as Governor.
Second, he Impeaches Theodore Itoose
velt's Interest In union labor In this coun
try. For whatever Ir may be worth the
record of Woodrow V'llson discloses him
to bo the most Inveterate enemy of union
labor who has ever sought the Presi
dency. Has he forgotten the Jollne letter
written In 1907? Mr. Jollne, president of
the M. K 4 T. Hallway Company at Par
sons, Kan., In 1907 delivered an address
statins: "Credit la the cornerstone and
foundation of all business, and when you
have the cruel hammer of the labor union
strlklnK you on the one side and the reck
less nnd unprincipled hammer of the po
litical dem.iKiiKUe on the other, what be
comes of your credit?''
Mr, Jollne addressed a copy of the state
ment to Mr Wilson nnd In reply Mr. Wil
son, not then a candidate for office, made
the following statement :
"Mr Dkaii .Mb, Jomnb : Thank you
very much for sundlnn me your address
at Parsons, Kan., before the lxard of di
rectors of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas
Hallway Company. I have read It with
relish and entire agreement. Would that
we could do something, at nce dignified
and effective, to knock .Mr. bryan once
for all Into a cocked hat,"

"The tendency nf the mrslern labor

by acclamation by himself, and there

to Hoosevclt'a testimony before the

to his campaign fund or that tho trusts
had contributed, lie added:
Itnosevelt testified that he did not know
o these contributions until ho read of them
In the newspapers. Is It possible that the
American people will be deceived by such a
flagrant and self-evident falsehood? Just
think of anybody dropping sloo.ooo In my
campaign und nnd I not know it. I am
somewhat anxious. I am afraid Mr. Morgan
may drop a hundred thousand Into rav
campaign fund and that I may not find It
out ror eight years and tken be placed upon
the witness stand to testify nnder oath that
I had never heard of It. if men were not
still in mental childhood Mr. Roosevelt

PLAN BIG TOUR FOR WILSON.
Hundred Nevr York Business Men
Mar Go to I'aclflo Coast.
One hundred New Yorkers, members
of the Nntlonal League of Business Men
for Wilson and Marshall, probably will
make a flying tour of the United State
to visit business men of other cities
In tho Interest of the Democratic can
didates. The plan has been suggested
by W. R. Messenger, secretary of tho
league, and Indorsed by the president,
Cleveland II. Dodge, and tho other ofll
cers. The party may go in a special train
to tho Pacific coast. Tho Itinerary as
outlined Includes Kuffalo, Cleveland, To
ledo, Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Paul,
Des Moines, Denver, Kansas City, St.
Louis. Indianapolis, Columbus, Cincin
nati and Pittsburg. Tho league Is to
have In each State a vice-president who
would arrange for the reception of the
New York pilgrims.
"The trip." Mr. Messenger said yes
terday, "wouldn't coat as much as circu
larizing two million names, the postage
for which alone would be $40,000."
DEMANDS PLEDGES FOR
Citizens Union to Make Public
List of Candidates It
The Citizens Union gave out a state
ment yesterday urging voters to sup
port only candidates for the Senate or
Assembly who pledge themselves be

setts form of ballot. This ballot requires
a voter to place a single cross before
the name of each candidate for whom he
votes instead of permitting him to vote
a straight ticket by marking a single
cross in the party circle.
The Union is to make public soon a list
of candidate whom it favors. It com
plains that "about three-fourths of thn
candidate running for the Legislature
in this city on tho tickets of the Republi
can, Democratic, Progressive and In
dependence League parties are men

judgment can be baaed, as to their flt
The Union says that If the Massachu.

would have to demonstrate hi fitness
Two of the State parties Progressive
and Indeiwndunco League advocate such
a ballot in their platforms. J
Tho Union scolds the Independence
League for nominating in the Eleventh
Senato district Senator Cnristopher Sulli
van, "whose record In the Legislature Is
notoriously bad, " the Union says, and
for indorsing in the Fourth Assembly
district Aaron J. Levy, who, according
to the Citizen Union, "fathered in the
Legislature the worst ballot law ever
put on the statute books in this State, "
In the Seventeenth Assembly district
tho Union says that Mark Eisner, Demo
crat, "is an intelligent advocate of ths

can, should be sent to the Assembly from
the Twenty-first district.

Col. Ilooaovelt has written a letter to
Mrs. Kellogg Falrbank of Chicago thank

finance committee of the Progressive

The letter says:
I feel that there should he a peculiarly
hearty response from women to our appeal

Inventor Likes Roosevelt He

Handling tho Bunch."
HE FAVORS EXPERIMENTS
"Tariff as an Tssue Is a Po
litical Bluff," One of tho
Thomas A. Edison at West Orange,
N. J., yesterday told reporters that he is
for Roosevelt because Roosevelt has a
dominant personality and knows men
better than the two other candidates,
"He is capablo of handling tho bunch,"
said tho inventor, "that ho baa to come
in contact with If he Is elected President.
By the bunch I moan all tho politicians
in the United States and that rare colleo

Influence against Itoosevelt in this cam

thing, tho people who ar doing well and
don't want a change. It doesn't hurt
Itoosevelt to have Perkins behind him.
Perkins is all right; h" haa a finely organ
ized head on him. Wo want more men
like Perkins and Ex'erett Colby In politics;
men who are in politics for glory and not
for money." The inventor continued:
The Americans am experimenters; we
want to try experiments in government.
They're trylntr them out In Oregon and
California and it seems to work nil right
there. If we carry out the Oregon idea we
can try a lot of experiments without any
danger. I have that same system in my
factories. I hire a man to tako charge of a
branch of the factor)' and say, "I'll give you
two months to mako good. If you don't
make good I'm through with you." 1 don't
hire men on four year contracts to put
them In chargo of departments.
Taft Is a line man. but unable to cope
with that bunch. They've put it all over
him. Wilson would bo In the samo boat.
The tariff as nn Issue is n political bluff,
It is what we call in merchandising a "talk
ing point." Possibly Wilson could accom
plish what he sets out to do partially, but
he Is not as likely to do so as Itoosevelt.
There are some abuses In the tariff, but It
is not all wrong. If it were chanued the
changes ought to !o made over a period of
years. A man can tako enough strychnine
to kill an elephant and take It without harm
if he takes it In small doses first nnd grad
ually increases It. 1 suggested that to the

Wilson urges tho same thing. It is a good

Mr. Kdison said that judging from the
