THERE'S A REASON.
, Incidentally, but logically, the same men of Ari
zona and California whom Roosevelt refused to
appoint to office at the request of Harriman appeared
this' year as leaders of the Taft forces in those two
States and assisted in the Great Steal at Chicago.
And incidentally, but logically, these same Harri

has no chance of being elected, are getting in line
MORE DATA ON MAJORITIES COMING.
President Taft, in an interview, once more gives
voice to his, alarm about the imminence of majority
rule in this country.
"That would be a monstrous form of despotism,"
In confidence, it may be observed that Mr. Taft's
gloomy -views df what majorities can do, are not a

TAFT SENTIMENT GROWING.
With diurnal regularity the "boiler plate" and
"canned editorial" departments of the Republican
(Organization are announcing that Taft sentiment is
on the increase.
So it is.
After ninetydays of hard work the Taft managers
have finally, succeeded-in getting all members of that
committee-committed to Taft. True, they had to de
pose some committeemen who correctly represented
their States and stood for Roosevelt, substituting
others who are. personally for Taft, regardless of
their States. But at that the Republican national
committee may now be safely claimed for Taft,
inat.s something gained.
NEW YORK'S LATEST POLICE TRAGEDY.
i ' '
' "Big Jack1' Zelig, generally undesirable citizen,
gang leader, and gun fighter, was killed last night
on a New York street car. One bullet, fired into his
head, did the business. The shooting was done by a
man who thus far has been in no way connected with
the police murders of a few weeks
caught and locked up.
Zelig had informed the police of the identities of
the four assassins of Gambler Rosenthal; wherefore
he was an object of the acute animosity of their
supporters in the underworld. He was expected to
be a very .important witness in their trials, and in
that of Lieutenant Becker, charged with procuring
the Rosenthal murder. It is not yet clear whether
the removal of Zelig will vitally weakdn the case of
It is certain, however, that the gangsters would
have desired few things more than the removal of
Zelig. The wonder is that they could have induced
any man to murder him in the way it was done. The
only explanation is that the gang still believes it is
supreme in New York; that it is able to frustrate all
the processes and ends of justice, and to continue
murders on the public streets wherever and whenever
it seems opportune and desirable to "remove" ob
This new tragedy, in view of the events that'have
gone before, and of the state of public opinion, is
ven more startling than was that of Rosenthal.
Likewise, the failure of the police to get af essential
information as to its backing and inspiration, sug
gests that the league between police and vice is still
intact, and still working to preserve its control. The
New York situation becomes more scandalous and
menacing than ever before.
LITTLE NATjONS WITH BIG ARMIES.
With almost 100,000,000 people, this, nation has a
tiny army, limited by law to 100,000 men, and not
recruited nearly to that limit. Therefore it is start-

Greece can put something like half a million
equipped soldiers in the field. Yet they, not we,

THE aNTERESTS" IN 1904.
J A. WALKER,
When Colonel' Roosevelt testified that in 1004 he
supposed that the Morgan-interests were opposed to
him, and that he never knew of Mr. Morgan's contrib
uting to his campaign that year until Mr. Morgan
himself toid it in testimony on Thursday, he recalled
many memories to a review of' political conditions in
What Colonel Roosevelt then presumed to be the
attitude of the so-called "interests," was exactly what
the vast majority of people supposed. And, broadly,
it was the fact. The truth about the alignment in
that fight has been obscured by the bitterness and
the calumnious charges that have been bandied ever
since, beginning with the accusations which Judge
Parker Voiced but failed to substantiate,-, in the clos
ing days of the campaign. The facts, when even
casually recounted and reviewed, completely justify
his surprise at learning that Mr. Morgan had con
tributed for him.
First, let it be remembered that despite his
promise of following out the Mckinley program, Mr.
was approaching for the 1004 pre-convention fight,
Hanna was the candidate of these disaffected ele
ments. He was supposed to have, and did have, the

Senator Hanna died. Roosevelt's strength with the
country was overpowering. Then the interests
turned to the Democracy, as they did this year when
they believed Roosevelt would be nominated by the
The result was the lavishly financed campaign
for Parker's nomination. Mr. Bryan has testified
amply to the extent of that backing by the "interests"
which put Parker over at St. Louis. Messrs. Belmont,
Ryan, and their associates were lined up for Parker.
They did nominate him, and they tried desperately
to elect him.
Every man whose political recollection goes back
to 1904, will recall without difficulty the general un
derstanding that the big powers of business and
finance were behind Parker. Mr. Roosevelt had
estranged, as he supposed, and as everybody else
supposed, the Morgan interest, by his beginning and
vigorous prosecution of the Northern Pacific-Great

interposed in a most unprecedented manner to end
the anthracite strike, and he understood, just as the
whole country understood, that Mr. Morgan resented
At that time, too, he had had a preliminary brush
with the Standard Oil interests, which had greatly
angered them. They had been insistent in opposing
the creation of the Bureau of Corporations, and had
sent urgent telegrams to a number of Senators,
opposing it. President Roosevelt got hold of some
of these, and published them. This aroused a gen
eral public resentment against such interference,
made men fear to vote as the Standard interests had
demanded, and forced the passage of the measure.
That was the status of relations between Roose
velt and the large "interests" at the opening of the
1904 fight. The "interests" were universally under
stood to be against Roosevelt, and were just as uni
versally understood to have brought about the nomi
nation of Parker.
Now, what was their real attitude? Cornelius N.
Bliss had been treasurer of the Republican commit
tee in 1896 and 1900. He occupied the same posi
tion in 1904. The testimony shows that the fund he
raised in the latter year was only a fraction of that
which was raised for McKinley in the two earlier
years. It is testified that the great financial con
cerns of New York gave to the McKinley campaigns
with practical unanimity, but that in 1904 only a few
of them gave to the Roosevelt campaign.
Big business, as a fact) was divided in 1904. Most
of it was for Parker. More of it w,as for Parker,
early in the campaign, when there was belief that he
had a chance, than later, when it became apparent
that 'nothing could stem the popular tide toward
Roosevelt. Big Business loves a winner and when
it got its eye on the winner, it accepted the inevitable
and some of its elements lined up for him.
By doing so, they hoped as the Penrose-Arch-bold
testimony makes clear to placate the man
whom at first they had purposed to beat, In this they
did not succeed, and hence the real grievance. They
hoped that contributions to a campaign that was go
ing to win anyhow would induce a more amiable
attitude toward them. They found, after the election,
that their hopes were vain. Mr. Roosevelt proceeded
in his second term to treat them just as he had done
in his first term. Therefore their bitterness against
him today, and the determination to break him down
before the country by dint of the vicious assaults
that were intended to climax in the inquiry that Pen
that has proved such a boomerang
