EXIT THE "PROGRESSIVE" PARTY
There was never any real excuse for the exist
ence of the so-called "Progressive" party. Its
death from inanimation closed its career as an in
sane organization captained by a forlorn candidate-by-nature
whose egotism blinded him to the folly
of attempting to continue in public life after a de
Unite dismissal by the party which he had served,
and which has served him.
When there is a crisis there is always a great
man to meet it. When there is no cause for alarm
there is always u noisy alarmist. It was the pe
culiar melancholy fate of Theodore Uoosevelt to
preticipate the fall of the Republican party by
wishing upon it a President and titular leader, in
the person of William II. Taft, too honest to be a
good politician and too amiable to make a deter
mined stand against the bad men who fancied
themselves the good politicians of his party.
When Colonel Roosevelt returned from Africa,
hoping to relieve his legatee of possession of the
White House, the handwriting upon the wall
spelled the defeat of the Republicans, and the
leaders who had been unwise enough to defy the
voters were not unwise enough to see in the lion
killer a hope of victory.
in the mood of a mad bull charging a red rag.
Colonel Roosevelt formed and headed an organiza
tion which did not reach the dignity of a party
of protest, but was nothing more than a party of
empty allegation. The picturesque personality of
the leader, plus the picturesque name which re
flected the circus instinct, kept alive upon paper
a party which had a fleeting actual existence and
a fatuous idea of its importance.
There was a time when "the word of Caesar
might have stood against the world." That time
had passed when Colonel Roosevelt set himself
up as the official assailant of the unrighteous in
behalf of the righteous, lie was as dead politically
as Julius was physically when Antony came to
speak at his funeral. Now follows the expected
in the death of the Progressive party, and the oc
casion brings no Antony to the fore to bury him
Let us hope that the vigorous and vivid per
sonality that survives political death will remain
for a long time with us. Citizen Uoosevelt will
always be popular, and deservedly so. Author
Roosevelt will remain in demand at a shilling a
word, and maybe two shillings for expletives
Rut of President Roosevelt it may be said, as the
Romans said of their dead, "He has lived."

Two years from now it will be the Old Guard,
with such professions of reform as are deemed
necessary to constitute a salving and saving grace,
against Woodrow Wilson and the record of his
administration. If .Mr. Roosevelt is to head that
opposition, it will be on its terms, not his. The
bludgeon is no longer in his hands. Louisville
The elections show that the people have not been
duped into letting the administration use the war
as a cover for its sins. Mr. Wilsonlins been judged
in this State and in most of the other big industrial
and commercial states on his record as a disturber
of business and a banisher of prosperity inde
pendently of the effects of the European conquest.
It was he who warred on business, little as well
as big. long before the Europeans fighters took
it into their heads to do the same. He is the
orginal crusader against production at normal
speed and employment on a normal basis. His
policies created the unrest from which the country
lias suffered ever since it became known two years
ago that the Democratic party had been restored
to power in all the departments of the govern
ment. New York Tribune.
Two years of a Democratic administration with
that party in full legislative and executive power
has had seemingly the same effect that it did the
last time that experiment was tried. The Demo
cratic tariff bill of 20 years ago was followed by
continuous Republican success for 16 years.
Whether that radical political change is repeated
or not it is clear that the vote of confidence and
approval which President Wilson desired for his
Democratic policies has not been given, but a vote
of censure has been imposed in its stead. Philadel
