HOW THE PRESIDENT "DEMOL
ISHES" HIS ADVERSARIES
The cukoo press, exultinsly declares
that the Ftatenient of the president ir
reply to the charge tlisit he had im
properly used federal patronage to fur
ther the political fortunes of Secretary
Taft, if not of himself, has "completely
demolished" his adversaries and put
them to rout. Yet to the 'unidolatrous
observer, it will appear that the state
ment consists only of a bare denial
garnished with Roosevelt ian platitudes
on the subject of the high standard of
character and capacity of those whom
he chooses to serve under him. All
this is not a refutation of the charge
made, not by one. but by many sena
tors and by persons outside of
congTess familiar with the character
of the appointments of which Com
plaint is made.
It is not too broad a statement, to
declare that not a thinking or observ
ing ma'n in the United States has been
convinced by the president's denial,
which is weakened by the numerous
questions of veracity in which he has
been involved. Moreover, the circum
stantial facts are a!l on the side of
So intense and unblushing a partisan
as the president himself, has never
occupied a high place in the nation.
His last special message to congress
was a most astounding bit of partisan-'
ship. Two motives have been suggest
ed for the transmission of that
remarkable document either to
strengthen the movement in behalf of
Secretary Taft, or to resurrect the
third farm movement. The circum
stances leave little doubt that the in
tent was political. Tiere could have
been no other object in sending the
message. It purported to b' r. recom
mendation for the enactment of an
employer's liability law, when already
an employer's liability bill was before
the senate. There were other recom
mendations mingled with the tide of
epithets against "predatory wealth,"
and "sinister offenders" but the pres
ident, assuming him to be of ordinary
perspicacity, must have known that
they would not receive the attention of
Another circ umstance was the day of
the transmission it Friday, over which
the senate intended to adjourn, but re
mained in session at the urgent re
quest of Senator Lodge, the president's
friend, to receive the worse than use
less message. Friday night was the
time set for Governor Hughes' decla
ration of principles. Why then, was
this day chosen for the message, which
contained no advice that the congress
needed or would heed, unless it was
intended by the president, that it
should "smother" the Hughes speech
in the newspapers of Saturday morn
ing? Whether or not the president had
such a puriHise, there is still the gen
ral and iiicr-ulkable impression that
the message was meant to serve only a
political purpose. It may be reasonably.
ask-d whether a president who prosti
tutes the prerogative conferred mi pun
him by Section i of Article II of the
Constitution and in the guis of a
message to congress d"livers an in
flammatory stump speech to the na
tion, would hesitate to use improperly
hi.s power of appointment for partisan
In this relation, Representative
Douglas, an adherent of the president,
and whose letters were read by Sena
tor Foraker the following day in the
senate, himself unwittingly convicts
the president of the charges. Not
withstanding Douglas attributes to
the (resident the liiglfst motives in
1he careful weighing t,f appointment
matters, in one of his lexers to i;ry
mmi, the Athens, ii.. postma.Mcr.- u hose
ai'P 'intment ho lie,.n heir up because I
P,r.' ben IihiI stated his belief that. Taft '
ai losing ground in Ohio, he writes!
(hat the president had .-aid to him that
he "saw no reason for the appointment
of those who were ivt in harmony ,
Douglas furthermore inferentially
criticised Senator Foraker, as the .
cuckoo press is doing, for making use
of the letters that had passed between I
Br; son and Douglas. Yet, only a week
earlier, the president himself in his !
special message had made himself an
accessory after the fact to the theft i
of a letter stvlcn from the Sinta Ke I
oifier:- at Can KratiriiOJ by a disrbarg- j
emploje. This letter alo bv the 1
in such a way as to show a purpose to
discredit an honorable gentleman, and
not to advise the congress of any mat
ter In which the federal government
had the slightest concern.
In view of all these facts in connec
tion with the course of the president,
will any unprejudiced person believe
th.it he would not or has not availed
himself of the appointive powor to
push forward his own political purpo
ses, if not in the interest of Secretary
Taft. in his own interest?
Even "Wags," the Evening Outcast,
is capable f ultimate discernment.
Even "Wags" has had borne in upon
it the ridiculousness of its attempted
expulsion of that veteran republican,
Herbert Brown, of Tucson, from the
party. "Wags" now explains that it
never intended to question the republi
canism oi air. urown, diu mat ot me
Tucson Post, of, which Mr. Brown is ;
the owner and editor and the writer of ;
an offending editorial opposing an in
structed delegation. The explanation j
cannot fail to appease the friends of .
Mr. rBown. No assault was made upon j
him. "Wags" admits his true and
tried republicanism, but it holds that
his press and his type and his whit"
paper and even the building ill which
the post is housed is open to the suspi
cion of not being republican, "Wags"
might even go farther and allepe with
out fear of successful contradiction
th.-it Mr. Brown's hat is not republi
can and that his horse and cow have
never been consecrated to the sacred
cause of Roosevelt.
The honorable Japanese government
appears to be in a state of confusion
and doubt as to whether to strike the
first blow at that strategic point, San
Pedro', or at that solar plexus of this
country's defenses. Santa Monica. So
far, the commanding position of Ky
rene seems not to have engaged hostile
attention. ' -

"THE BLUE MOON"
one of the most striking features of
"The Blue Moon" in which James T.
Powers and a big company comes to
the Dorris Opera House is the gor
geousness of the scenery anil costumes.
Each of the two acts is located in
British India, and most of the com
pany portray Eas Indians, although
there is a plentiful sprinkling of
Brinish soldiers. A fortune has been
spent in preparing this cast for the
eye and inasmuch as it has been the
aim to have every costume perfectly
correct in detail, and at the same time
the absolute limit in beauty of effects
the entire satirical ensemble is one
merry and delirious riot of brilliant
colorings. The uniforms of tue mili
I tary are in striking contrast to the
'flowing garb of the natives, and the
two allow the costumer to run the en
Itire gamut of Oriental and Occidental
splendor in dress.
