date Who Can Handle
NEW YORK. Oct. 7. Thomas A. Kdi
ion declared that he was "a born Bull
Mooter,' 'and gave out an Interview
In his laboratory at West Orange, N. J.
Mr. Edison, however, holds views that
colncldo with those of Governor Wil
son on the tariff. He Is strong for tho
recall -and. the referendum, and believes
wn ahauld have more men in politics
like George W. Perkins and Senator
Colby. Speaking of Theodore Roosevelt,
-,fr. v:ninn nam:
"He knows men better thsn the other
two nominees could. Ho Is capable of
handling the bunch that he has to con
tend with If he gets to bo President.
Nobody likes to be reformed that has a
good thing. Americans aro experi
mental. We want to try experiments
In govcrnn.eiit. We aro trying It out
Ir. Colorado, California, and Oregon, and
It seems to bo working all right. If we
carry out the Oregon Idea wo can try
out a lot of experiments without dan
ger. "The bunch Roe-Levelt has to contend
with Is the political bunch at Washing
ton. The great Issue of tho campaign Is
the recall and the referendum; In othur
words, the Bull Moose platform."
Asked his opinion of Taft, Mr. Edison
'I think Taft Is a lino man, but unable
to copo with that bunch down there.
They will put It all over him."
"What do you think of Wilson?" ho
"Wilson Is In tho same boat."
Asked In regard to tho tariff, Mr. Edi
"The tariff la a political bluff. What
we call In commercial life 'a talking
point.' If Wilson is elected he may
cairy out the tariff proposition, but I
doubt it. If we make a change in the
tariff wo ought to extend It over a num
ber of years.
"I think It a good thing to string It
out and not to give It to us all at once.
"Trusts aro aood things, but ought to
be regulated the samo as railroads are
"If tho Government owns railroads
they should never operate them. They
should lease them to responsible par
tics." CASCARETS TONIGHT
