GOVERNOR HERBERT S. HADLEY OF MISSOURI DESERTS THE BULL
MOOSE PAETY AND JOINS THE FORCES OF PRESIDENT WILLIAM
H. TAFT.
Shortly before the close of the presi
dential campaign in 1904, Judge Alton
B. Parker, the Democratic candidate
for president at that time declared in
several speeches which he delivered in
the east, that the heads of several life
insurance companies, the .managers of
the Standard Oil Company, the brazen
faced bosses of the money and stock
market, industrial kings and many of
the high or heayen born bloated high
brow, millionaires, who never earned an
honest dollar in their lives, who have
always made their ill-gotten money by
squeezing the very life blood out of the
toiling millions and crushing those un
der their feet of iron, had contributed
vast and untold sums of money to aid
in electing CoL Theodore Boosevelt,
President of the United States.
It will be recalled that on the Sun
day morning prior to the presidential
election at that time, that President
Boosevelt came out in a long statement
signed by himself which was published
to the world in which he denied that
any of the life insurance companies,
the heads of the grasping corporations
and any of the great commercial kings
had contributed one dollar to help to
defray the expenses of bis campaign,
that he would not accept one dollar of
their tainted money, that the majority
of wealthy men were maifaetors and
wicked criminals at heart, who seldom
contributed one dollar towards the
support of their government or for the
lasting good of tM country, except for
selfish purposes and he not only branded
Judge Parker as a Democratic liar
but every other kind of a liar nnder
the bright shining sun, and he wound
nP by loudly declaring that Judge
Parker was a rattled brained fool for
giving expression to sueh damnable
low bred lies, that he-was -a fit sub
ject for some insane asylum, that be
would make a splendid president of
hades and a mighty poor president of
the United States.
"Wnen the smoke of that great con
test had cleared away CoL Boosevelt
had marched on to victory and Judge
barter, had marched on to defeat, so
there was great rejoicing on the part of
the people, for they like simple and
eak minded little children foolishly
labored under the Impression that for
oaee in their lives they had at last
succeeded in electing an honest man in
ey sense of the word to rule over
them and to guide and direct their gov
"amenta! affairs, in theTperson of lis,
majesty, the great and mighty CoL
Theodore Boosevelt.
In this respect they, the people were
sadly mistaken however, for not long
after he had had that great and dis
tinguished honor heaped upon him, the
Pennsylvania Railroad Co. sent him a
bill for fifty thousand dollars which
its oiQcials claimed he owed it for
traveling over its various lines on his
speaking and pleasure tours on receiv
ing the bill he cussed and swore and
loudly exclaimed that he never would
pay it and it is fair to presume that he
never has paid, it which is in our opin
ion an evidence of dishonesty on his
part, not many months after ho as
sumed the duties of his office, Congress
started in to investigate him just a
little bit and in doing so it found out
to the great astonishment of all the
people, residing in all parts of the civ
ilized world, that four or five of the
largest life insurance companies in New
York City had robbed the widows,
little children and other policy holders
out of hundreds of thousands of dollars
and that the vast sums of money
which they had thus stolen, they will
inriy chucked it into the Republican
campaign fund in order to help to elect
Col. Boosevelt, President, alter tnat
eye opener no further investigations
along that lino were made until re
cently. .
Nothing further was accomplished in
this direction until late the past Spring
at that time it was brought to the
surface that the late Edward H. Harri
man the big Bailroad king, whom Presi
dent Boosevelt very bitterly denounced
later on as a malfaetor of great wealth
and that no honest men could ever
think about associating with him, had
raised $240,000 for tho apostle of
purity and righteousness and that the
money was used by Cornelius N. Bliss,
Treasurer of the Republican National
Committee in 1904 to assist to put CoL
Roosevelt on the inside of the breast
works in bis band to hand contest with j
Judge Parker.
CoL "Boosevelt at "that time and this

CONGRESSMAN WILLIAM SULZER.
The Peoples Candidate for Governor of the Empire State.
bold, head of the Standard Oil Com-
ander "Valters, he is fishing for all the
duce to march under his banner and
without tho least doubt about it many
thousands of Afro-Americans will either
march on to victory or to defeat with
him.
Our old friend tho honorable Will
iam Sulzcr, who has been elected and
re-elected to Congress for the past 18
years from a strong Republican dis
trict in New York City,was this week
nominated to make tho race for Gov.
of the Empiro state and being ono of
tho best vote getters in this country
and being exceedingly popular with
all classes of his fellow citizens
throughout his stato he has a splendid
fighting chance of becoming Gov. of
New York.
Governor Herbert S. Hadley of Mis
souri has deserted tho Bull Moose
party and he is now engaged in mak
ing speeches for President William H.
Taft, to tho gerat rejoicng of his firm
supporters and followers, the actions
of Gov. Hadley means that ho is just
beginning to see tho light of day and
that ho is able to tell which way the
wind is blowing.
pany, Henry C. Prick, Georgo J. Qould4olorcd votes that he can get or in
and John P. Morgan, contributed $100,
000 to $150,000 each, to the campaign
fund, to assist to elect tho former
Bough Biding President.
Mr. Morgan admitted this week, be
fore tho investigating committee; that
he had personally counted out $150,000
of his own money to Mr. Bliss, Treas
urer of tho Republican National Com
mittee, for the purpose of furthering
tho election of Col. Boosevelt, aside
from giving a large sum of money to
assist in the local contest in New York
State.
It was clearly proven this week be
fore the Senate investigating commit
tee, that the late Edward H. Harriman,
chucked in $50,000 of his own money,
in addition to raising $240,000 among
his friends for tho apostlo of purity and
righteousness, that several life insur
ance companies of New York City, an-
tied in from $300,000 to $400,000 for
the present head and front of the Bull
Moose crowd, who are simply thirsting
for power and offices, that more than
73 per eent. of the $2,199,000 which was
milked out of tho money kings, tho
great captains of industry and the
blood sucking corporations, was con
tributed, by tho corporations, for the
advanee agent of .prosperity, panics and
wild eat money in 1907, for the people
to do business with, and with those
millions behind him, to be recklessly
expended for campaign purposes, in the
way of debauching and buying up the
voters throughout the country, it was
an easy matter for CoL Boosevelt, to
knock out Judge Parker, in 1904.
Boss William Flynn, of Pa, also ad
mitted on the witness stand, before tho
investigating committee, that he care
lepsly threw several hundred thousand
dollars into the jack pot, to assist CoL
Boosevelt, in his present contest for tho
presidency.
It has been clearly proven beyond a
doubt that CoL Boosevelt has been firm
ly caught in the coon trap of the Senate
investigating committee, that he has
proven tiTf to be the greatest per
verieator of his day and generation, and
that he has no more regard for the ab
solute truth, than the head or the boss
devil has for holy water.
Gov. Woodrow Wilson has started on
his long journey through tho west, he
will speak in the leading cities and
towns in Ohio, IniL, ILL, Mo, and Col
orado and before returning to his home
in the east he will travel well onto
five thousand miles, ho will arrive in
Chicago Oct. 10, and be the distin-
guished guest of its Democratic citi
zens who are planning on giving Mm
a royal receptionj Got. Wilson will
visit tho State Fair at Springfield on
"Democratic Day" and speak from

ored vomers crowded the Evanston
Auditorium to its fullest capacity and
listened to able addresses delivered by
prominent speakers on the Initiative,
Referendum and Recall Tuesday even
ing. The meeting was held under the aus
pices of the Young Men's Progressive
Club of Evanston and was said to have
been tho most successful meeting held
thus far in that vicinity since the be
ginning of the campaign. The Hon.
George W. Ellis delivered an able and
convincing argument with forceful and
telling effect. The Hon. B. F. Moseley,
as usual acquitted himself with honor
and credit. James Hale Porter, a cred
itable warrior of many a well fought
battle, demonstrated his ability as an
exponent of Progressiva ideas. Others
who participated in the program were
the Ber. X A. Thomas, and A. N.

and ex-county Judge Lewis Blaster,
Republican candidate' for .State's At
torney, with headquarters at 3449 S.
Chicago, HL, Oct. 4. This has been
home-coming week at the headquarters
of tho Republican National Commit
tee. Every report from every source
shows that the people are returning to
tho fold in phenomenal numbera re
turning from their midsummer adver
tisement, wherein they attended CoL
Roosevelt's photospasm of social and
ambitious greed, not to mention Pro
fessor Wilson's inexperience meetings
and chautauquas of theoretical re
search, and are now settling themselves
down to tho serious business of elect
ing a Republican President.
It is a fine sensation to be identified
with a party that has always led pros
perity by the hand. When tho Eepub
lican party comes back, behold prosper
ity with her overflowing cornucopia
there by its side. They are comrades.
Out west, where the Boosevelt splash
in tho political pool has been most pro
nounced, tho people are awakening to
tho dire possibilities of the election of
either Wilson or Boosevelt. They re
call that under the last Democratic ad
ministration that corn, which now
brings 77 cents upon the Chicago mar
ket was worth only 16 cents at this
same season of tho year, and that dur
ing Boosevelt's administration there
was an inceptive money sinngencjr,
wherein it was impossible, to draw
money from the savings banks. It
has recurred to them at tho same time
that Boosevelt was the only Bepub
lican President since 1873 who had any
condition that even savored of a busi
ness depression. As a result of these
retrospections there has been an ex
odus fronT the Wilson and Boosevelt
camps in the west that approaches a
stampede. High cost of living, which
accrues from natural causes, of which
the demand created by the wonderful
prosperity of the country is not the
least, is not so bad when tho people
have the high money with which to
meet it; but contemplate a term of
four years of Wilson and tho inevi
table stagnation of business, owing to
his platformed policy of tariff tinker
ing, and with the present high prices
of commodities attending us.
Of course, everybody knows that the
Boosevelt forces are simply cohorts of
tho Democrats; Boosevelt is not run
ning for the presidency, but for re
venge upon tho Republican party,
which ho seeks to destroy because it
has denied his dictatorship.
There is no class of people to whom
national prosperity means more than
it does to the Colored people. They
are essentially wage earners and service
men, who thrive more upon the luxuri
ous waste of life than upon. the busi
ness routine of actual necessities. In
many cases they are farmers, buUnot
so generally in the north; but at any
event the prosperity of the nation has
upon the Negro an influeneo akin to
a modus vivondL If the money mar
ket is strained, there is no building,
and if there is no building there is no
hod-carrying. Those who are service
men, sueh as waiters, which avocation j

footmen and chauffeurs, aro all depend
ent upon prosperity. Tho railroad por
ter, who relies largely upon tips for his
wages, feels keenly tho falling off of
travel and the lack of liberality when
his patrons have not the money to
spend.
Tho Democratic party is constitu
tionally and by predisposition a party
of penury. It has the characteristic
and unhappy faculty of being poor it
self and of rendering everybody elao
pour around it. Can it bo so easily
forgotten that Mr. Bryan threw off tho
belt and stopped the entire proceedings
of tho- late Democratic Convention at
Baltimore in an effort to throw Byan
and Belmont out of the Convention
simply because they had made and
saved some money.
Professor" Wilson, whom Theodore
Roosevelt is trying to elect President
of tho United States, is the advance
agent of business depression. He howls
down the successful business man of
tho country, whilo he has for all of his
school teaching career been a parasitic
beneficiary of tho philanthropic fruits
of their business acumen. He has im
bibed all of the frectrade theories of
his friend and neighbor the late do
parted, Grover Cleveland, tho president
of panics, without the latter's hard
headed and rugged conception of state
craft. He has a pedagogic idea of con
structive government, and has taken
a post-graduato course at tho feet of
William Jennings Bryan, whom tho
country has thrice voted as having too
many revolutionary bats in his garret
to bo president of this great country.
Ho' is "book-larnt" but otherwise in
experienced in economic politics and
possesses that personal, padagogie ped
antry which renders him self-sufficient
to a degree only equalled by that in
comparable concentration of conceit,
Theodore Boosevelt.
What with tariff tinkering for rev
enue only, violent assaults upon the
policies under which this country has
become the industrial and commercial
monarch of the world, with a school
room pigmy lost in the seat of an in
tellectual giant, it isn't hard to seo
that prosperity win hide her face and
seek the seclusion of the ground hog.
from sheer lack of confidence.
Theodore Boosevelt is playing sancho
Panza to Woodrow Wilson's Don Quix

row Wilson, with his scholastic tempera-
Lment and stulted understanding, is just
as capable of administering the affairs
of the office to which he aspires as a
blacksmith is capable with his tongs
and anvil to repair tho mechanism of
a miniature Swiss watch.
Sinco the Negro is as much, if not
more than any other citizen dependent
upon the prosperity of the country, not
only for his luxuries, but for his ne
cessities, it is his duty lo place bis
shoulder to the wheel and assist in tho
retention of prosperity by the election
of the Republican -candidate for Presi

sure to come face to face with the
