For Vice President
HENRY G. DAVIS, of West Vrginia,,
"HOW SHALL WE DO?"
Like the young man who came to
Elisha, the prophet, the Republican
press of the state stand before their
imperialistic masters and cry: "Alas,
my master! how shall we do?" They
are told not to pry blind eyes open,
but to go forth and proclaim that
Roosevelt "is intensely patriotic, scru
pulously honest, an enemy of corpora
tions and a friend of organized labor."
'They do not discuss, argue or comment
on important national issues, but pro
duce the lone argument of "victory"
as they laud the name of their mas
If the old prophet had been schooled
in one of our modern political cam
paigns, he would, no doubt, have put
into the hands of the Republican
press a prayer book, with a few words
regarding the color of goggles they
must wear in order to translate the
"Roosevelt is intensely patriotic."
So is every citizen who has the rich,
red American blood in his veins.
"Roosevelt is the friend of organi
zation or individual whose motives
In what way has he been their
friend? By representing an adminis
tration whose history has been one of
labor strikes and bloodshed; whose
condition called for national interfer
ence, but was denied even a hearing
and no pretense made to meet out
justice to the guilty parties.
"That the best interests of the
most people is the standard by which
Roosevelt weighs and decides all pub
By placing a high protective tariff
on western products; centralizing cap
ital and building up a nets work of
combines and trusts that threaten ev
ery individual enterprise. It is evi
dent the president considerers that
the monoplies are in the majority, but
it is also evident that the producers
and laborers will weigh a few public
questions and decide to relieve his
"dletatorship" of the responsibility
Democrats are united this 'year
throughout the nation. They will
not stand still and cry, "Let well
enough alone," but will organize in
every community and go forward
with a determination to remove the
mill stone that has been hanging to
the neck of both producer and indi
vidual during Roosevelt's administra
A bandit chief of Morocco captured
an American and a British subject,
and demands for their safe return a
bounty of several thousand dollars.
The incident has become internation
al. The United States dispatched
a fleet of war vessels to the Mediter
ranian sea, at an expense of several
million dollars. The U. S. is touchy
about looking after its subjects in for
eign ports, but pays absolutely no at
tention to the capture and confine
ment of its own subjects in bull pens
in Colorado. If Moyer was confined
in a bull pen in Morocco you would
s3e strenuous Teddy bestirring him
self with San Juan suddenness.
The name of Col. J. H. Rice, of
Benton, has been mentioned by the
republican press of the state as a
probable candidate for the nomina
tion to the office of state treasurer.
The prominent republicans of this lo
cality express themselves as emphati
cally opposed to the nomination of
the colonel for certain uncalled for re
marks he made derogatory to the
character of our little city. If the
colonel goes into convention with a
delegation from his own county, he
will have to devote his entire atten
tion to explaning "hew old is Ann."
Last year the United States Steel
Corporation employed 168,000 men.
The number now on the payrolls is
said to be less than 140,000, and many
of them are only working on a part
time scale. It is the plan of the com
pany to distribute its work among as
many employes as possible. The work
now being done would not furnish
full time employment, it is estimat
ed, to 100,000 men. The Cotton mills
in New England are also working on
part time to a large extent, and some
of them have shut down altogether.
In Lowell, Mass., alone, there are 20,
000 idle operatives.
It may surprise smokers of pure Ha
vana fillers to know that the weeds
which they have been consuming are
made from cabbage and celery plants.
This fact has been brought out dur
ing the strike of the cigar makers in
Chicago, and has been in vogue since
1898. How pure minded the average
capitalist is, can be judged from the
sort of stuff he palms off on the pub
The somber quietude that surrounds
Mr. Fairbanks would indicate that
he had been up against a shell game.
