the fact that bo much la found lu

tho fact that It Is valuable for

practice for many years to clip and
preserve tho beat things that he find

THE YELLOW STREAK
Seeing a man wearing a Tuft badge in one of li in audiences in
Missouri last week, Mr. Kooesvelt pointed him out arid, declaring that
the badge was yellow, an appropriate color, raid, "Any msn
who supports Mr. Taft for the presidency lias n jillow rtriak in Mm."
A yellow streak! Any man who stipmrts President Taft for
the prettittency has a yellow streak in him!
Haa it come to tho point in this country, then, that an honeat
difference of opinion cannot be tolerated t If n man does not really
believe as some other men buliero, and would have him believe, hu is
to bo denounced told that there in a yellow at reak in him in other
words that he is corrupt; has not tho interest of his country at heart;
is not a patriot; in an "undersirable citizen."
There are a good many men throughout the country whose in.
telligcnce and integrity have never been questioned, who do not
think that tho time litis come yet to discard the Republican party.
They think it is less corrupt than when Ilnnnn held sway, or than
when Hons I'latt dictated the nomination of Mr. Roosevelt for tho
Vic Presidency, and they are going to vote for President Taft. Rut
they have a yellow streak in them I
There are still a few old soldiera whom the Republican party
and its first president called to the front in defense of the nation,
and to whom their party is a synouvm lioth for liberty and progress,
who might coufesH that it had rnad many mistakes, but who prefer to
seek to purify it rather thnn to desert it, and many of whoso names
will go under the log.cabin for tho last time this "fall. Yet a man
whom they have loved, whom they have praised and whom they have
twice; honored with their votes, ssya that they have n yellow streak in
them. The. old soldiers who (rite their red blood to unite the nation
have a yellow streak in them! .
There are some men a great many honest men who hnve read
and aro still reading both sides of the question, who do not believe
that Col. Roosevelt was robbed of the nomination at Chicago. They
have been waiting for the proof of tho charges aud no proof has been
given only the bare statement of the defeated forces that they were
defrauded. And these statements are not convincing in the face of
the defense offered by the Republican National Committee. These
men aje forced by conviction to cast their votes for the nominee of
the party. And yet, however honorable and honest they may be,
they haven yellow streak in them, for an honorable man has said so!
Tho country is enjoying an unusual degree of prospreity some
thing hardjy ever before known during a presidential campaign.
Labor is employed every day, wages are good and the working
classes are in better circumstances than ever before known. There
are, therefore, many honest people who can't beliere that the present
administration has been quite so bad ns it in said to have been and
who are going to vote for President Taft in recognition of his achieve
ments. These men, nevertheless, have a yelloio streak in them!
Mr. Roosevelt says so and it must be so.
In the pre-nomination campaigns about two huudred and seventy
contests were, instituted by tho Roosevelt organization. More than
two hundred of these were so flimsy that they were never presented
to the committee, their confessed obj'ect being psychological effect.
But has not Mr. Roosevelt forgotten his psychology Possibly the
declaration that every one who honestly opposes him has a yellow
streak in him may win for him support, but we doubt it. Surely
the psychological effect of his method of campaigning ought to be his
A CALM DISCUSSION
The Citizen has opened its columns to a calm discussion1 of the
issues that confront the voter ns seen from the three nngles or points
of view the Republican the Democratic and the Progressive. .
It waa hoped to have the three papers for the same issue but only
the one The Republican View which is presented below was re
ceived in time for publication. The others are to follow.
This may seem to be a uovel scheme, but The Citizen stands for
a free, frank, full, fair, aud open discussion of all problems believes
that every phase aud all sides of a question should be seen before a
decision is made, aud, as it has asked every voter to bear all sides and
think calmly before deciding, so it gives its readers that privilege with
in its own pages.
Tho gentlemen who have been selected for this discussion are
conscientious in their views and not given to excitement and each has
been asked to present his party in its best light.
