ROGER FOR V. P. Press reports
bring the glad tidings the'very glad
tidings that the friends of Roger
C. Sullivan will urge that redoubt-

president of the United States.
Not very many years ago it was
that the name of Roger Sullivan was
by many considered a synonym for
everything that wasj and is, rotten in
politics. Has Roger changed? Not
in the slightest degree. He is the
same" old Roger. He stands now as
always for everything that debases
politics; and what a beautiful pros
pect it would be to see the possibility,
even though it be remote, of having
the wily Roger president of , these
And what an abundance of ma

for cabinet advisers. For instance,

this inefficiency, today we are th&

The problem is not one of produc

years or so we have a panic because
the workers have produced too much.
Instead of returning their product to
those who have produced it, we allow
it to rot, or dump it into the sea, or
try to find foreign markets for it.
When we seek a foreign market for
our surplus we find other nations do
ing the same thing, the competition
grows fierce and we have war.
The sensible thing would be to give
the laboring classes all they produce
and you would need no foreign mar
