IT TAKES A MAN.
Governor Wilson intimated to his New York audi
ence that if he were elected and the House of Repre
sentatives and Senate were not both Democratic and
the legislatures of all the States were not Demo
cratic "so that they can signal to Washington"
his administration is likely to be a failure.
Perfectly true. In fact, more than true. It
takes a man who knows how to wield a big stick to
make any Congress at all do its duty. If the man
docs know how to use the stick, he can force even
an antagonistic Congress to forget politics. Theo
dore Roosevelt has shown that he knows how.
A CONCERT OUT OF TUNE.
The concert of Europe, it is strenuously main
tained, will under no circumstances permit the Turk
finally to be ejected from the Balkan peninsula.
He has been clinging to. a more or less precarious
foothold there ever since his incursion from Asia
and his overthrow of the Bryantine empire. His reign
has been one of barbarism, rapacity, excessive
cruelty, and religious hatred.
The very peoples who have been his constant
victims throughout these centuries have now risen
and are about throwing off his yoke. Left alone they
will drive him out of Europe and free that continent
from the worst blot on thc'civilizution it boasts.
If the powers, because of jealousies and mutual
animosiies, shall inerfere to save the Turk's foot
ing, to perpetuate his regime of cruelty, then the
powers must be set down as in nowise better than
the Turk himself.
country and the results of the reduction. It is al
most a Democratic dogma, based partly upon ignor
ance, and partly upon political interest, that the
Government service is tainted throughout with in
competence and self-interest, and that graft is 'prev
alent. If the Government service really is corrupt and
incompetent, then the Democrats are right. But the
Democrats are not right. No doubt there arc some
incompetents, and some grafters too, among the two-hundred-odd
thousand Government employes. But
our Government service compares favorably with
that of any other nation. It compares favorably
with organized forces in corporate industry. Its
average of devotion, efficiency, loyalty, capacity, and
zeal is high. The man who does not know this need
only to look at the results.
What is the greatest agency for the material ben
efit of the American farmer? It is the work in
scientific endeavor along practical lines done by men
and women of the Department of Agriculture.
What agency has made forestry a household
word in America, and is leading lumbermen to care
for their forests for very fear of an outraged public
sentiment? The Forest Service.
What agency leads the good roads movement,
which makes straight for prosperous homes? The
Thus one might go through the long list of the
Government activities and find that the organized
force which is doing most for the public good in
America today is the work of the men and the
women who serve Uncle Sam.
That work is only begun. It may cost more and
more money, and the only limit to the money it
should cost is what is needed and can be wisely
spent. It has taken a Democratic House to reduce
appropriations for practically every department in
the Government, and then to pass the dollar pension
Go home and vote, if you can. Before you vote
think earnestly what that vote means, in the light
of the facts written here, to you, to your family, to
the work you do. It means Roosevelt.
WILSON AT THE CAMPAIGN'S END.
Where is all this money you read about in the
betting stories, clamoring to get itself taken on the
proposition that Roosevelt will not beat Taft. A man
hears there is plenty of it at evens in Wall Street
and goes down there to put up a thousand on the
Bull Moose. The willing Taft bettor has just gone
out to play golf. He is never heard from again.
Then the Roosevelt man hears he can get his
money down at $1,000 to $700. He goes to the Taft
man's office, and finds the new hope is out for lunch
eon. The Bull Mooser sits around for half an hour,
till a telephone message says his prey has decided to
take a spin in his motor car. And so far no Taft
money in sight.
This is a sample of Rooscvelt-Taft betting as
compared with the yarns one hears about wagers on
the election. You read that the odds are 3 to 1 on
Wilson, or 4 to 1 according to some Wilson organs,
but Wilson men are not putting up their money at
odds unwarranted by any available figures. Many of
them are rather glad of the excuse of arbitrary odds,
not fixed by any considerable amount of actual bet
ting, for refusing to back the free trade entry at any
price. They know that, like Marathon cheering, bet
ting odds do not elect Presidential candidates.
Wilson men with sporting memories can recall
many a horserace in which a l-to-10 shot was nosed
out on the post.
THE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYES AND
We have had one session of a Democratic House.
What lesson can the Government employe, be he
bureau chief, letter-carrier, scientist, clerk, or mes
senger, draw from it? What influence should this
lesson have on his vote, assuming that he will vote
as most Government employes will -not for sordid
self-interest merely, nor for the public good only;
but as a sensible citizen, for what he thinks best for
the country and also for himself?
To what do we owe the iniquitous bill for a seven
year tenure in the public service? A bill which,
had it become law, would hae restored the old
spoils system under which Government appointments
were used to pay political debts, and employes were
promoted, demoted, and dismissed for the same rea
son. To whom do we owe that bill? To a Demo
For many years the sentiment has been growing
steadily among practical men that this country
should not share with Nicaragua the unenviable dis
tinction of being one of the two civilized nations of
the world which has no form of a civil service re
tirement plan. Many railroads and great corporate
industries pension their employes purely as a mat
ter of business. To whom do we owe the fact that
this movement has made no progress in the past
year, except in the wrong direction? To a Demo
But there is even a larger and more significant
fact which every public servant should bear in mind.
For want of a better, the watchword of the Democrats
has always been "economy." They could have no
better watchword, provided they meant true econ
omy that did not reduce efficiency. But economy in
the Democratic sense too often means merely re
ducing expenses, regardless of the needs of the
TUESDAY 1GES ON
How This Capital Minister
Spent His Summer Vacation
Rev. Dr. Wedderspoon Spells
It With Four Letters,
Question Whether Demo
crats Can Increase Their
Lead in Lower House.
Governor Wilson has played an old-fashioned
game of "good politics as she is played" during this
campaign. He found himself the nominee of a party
that had given a decisive majority of its convention
support to another man before, under the two-thirds,
rule, it was forced to take him as an alternative.
That set for him, as a first task, to satisfy the ma
jority in his own party that had not wanted him.
Offsetting this disadvantage was the fact that
the Republican party, without even the pretext of
an archaic and undemocratic rule, had also nominated
a man who was supported by a minority in its con
ention and notoriously was backed by a pitiful mi
nority of the mass of party members.
The Republican party was rent in twain, and the
Democratic was torn by disaffection, strife, and dis
gust over the defeat of the man who was its ma
jority's preference. The Progressive movement
came with a rush, drawing from both the old parties,
inspired by a zealous purpose to force new issues and
new ideals to the front, and backed by a wonderful
body of public opinion. '
In these conditions Governor Wilson's game was
to placate, to mollify, to avoid antagonisms, to talk
dainty nothings and glittering generalities, to avoid
the real issues on which there could be division, and
to hope that the schism within the Republican party
would prove so much more serious than that within
the Democratic, as to make it possible for Wilson to
win a minority election, as he had won a minority
That has been the Wilson program from the be
ginning. It is not a program calculated to arouse
profound admiration, to attract by its vigor or bold
ness, to force the admiration of men who take off
their hats to courage and sincerity. Week after week
Governor Wilson has skillfully skirted the edges
of issues, administering here a tap to Mr. Taft, there
a mild reproof to Mr. Roosevelt, and again gently
slapping the wrist of the Democratic platform on
tariff. As the campaign has drawn closer to its end,
insistence upon more definite statement of his views
has been redoubled; but against this his cautious
managers have re-enforced their insistence that he
must continue his velvet-footed progress, saying
nothing that could possibly be construed into some
thing. The governor has been an apt pupil in this
orthodox old school of politics. He has mana'ged to
"skin through" the campaign without committing
himself to anything in particular; and today he faces
the polling with the unique record of having talked
extensively without saying anything that defines his
position at all accurately. He is committed to nothing
in particular. The platform on which he was nom
inated was admirably adapted to just such a program
So it falls out that Governor Wilson is just as
much an enigma as ever. Behind him is a party
that has no particular convictions, and whose leaders
have acquiesced in the Wilson program of concealing
even the suspicion of convictions. Should Governor
Wilson be elected the country will rub its eyes and
wonder what it is entitled to expect. It will realize
that it has acquired no information on that subject,
save that Mr. Wilson is in favor of tearing down the
American protective policy.
Whatever of conviction, of direct issues, of defin
ite program and positive purpose nas been injected
into the campaign has come from the Progressive
party. There is no uncertainty where it stands,
or what it intends to do. That it actually reflects the
thought and aspiration at the top of the national mind,
none can doubt who considers its accomplishment of
building a new party in three months to a strength
that makes it one of (he two possible contenders for
