All Europe Is sitting up and taking
notice. Tho noto of tho powers two
weeks ago to tho allied urmles that,
whatever the result of the war,
present territorial boundaries would
be h'ld Intact, has been Ignored by
tho four llttlo states. Even the Eng

acknowledge that tho powers may
hesitate before undertaking to enforce
their wishes. At any rate, It is con
ceded that after their successes, the
powers will have n fight on their

Third Term Bugaboo
Hie third term Idea Is held up to

nothing In the spirit or our consti

OUR LAST APPEAL
Wo havo given glad credit to tho merits of the tlireo men who
are candidates for tho Presidency, and aro grateful for the fact that
tho choice lies between statesmen of such high character. Now comes
the practical question of electing the one who will most promote tho
prosperity and honor of tho country.
Wilson has high personal excellencies, but it is doubtful whether
he could overcome Iho bad tendencies t( the party to which ho bo.
longs. Cleveland was a man better than his party, 'but who of us
wishes to go back to the kind of prosperity we had when ho was
If we wish to elect n Republican president we should not begin
by splitting tho Hepubicnn party. Hadley, Denecn and most of tho
bent mon who preferred Roosevelt have seen this and refused to fol
low him into n revolt. Tho revolt is not well planned for success.
While al) may not believe that Roosevelt broke any pledgo in
running for n third term, we are sure this seeming violation will spoil
any chances of his success, and tho assumption of so many of his. fol
lowers that he is tha only man fit for the office is a dangerous one.
The claim that Roosevelt is more for"'the will of the people" than
other candidates is without foundation.
Rut our chief reason for bolisving thnt Taft will do the country
more good than either of the others Is the record of his administra
tion. He has had failures, and mistakes, and unworthy friends.
Out bo had Roosevelt and every other president. Such things como
in, but Uioy nre outweighed by great public services. While a good
president is exerting himself for the largest good some smaller
thkigs may slip by him. Taft's worst friend, Ballinger, he inher
ited from his predecessor, Roosevelt.
But certainly all fair men will consider his larger measures.
His bitterest opponents like the N. Y. Post admit that he has man
aged tho civil sorvico better than any other president. His recent
vetoes have been among tho best acts in the whole history of the
presidential office. He stands for the only true tariff policy scientif
ic revision. He has laid tho foundation for sound dealing witli the
trusts by requiring publicity and enforcing law. Ho has gotten
more good legislation out of Congress than did his predecessor, and
he is in position to accomplish much more in another four years.

THE REPUBLICAN APPEAL
THE WATCHWORD FOR LAST DAYS OF CAMPAIGN -"A SOBER
What shall n Republican say that
may win friends for his cause as
tho campaign draws to Its close?
President Taft has given the
watchword for these last days or
tho campaign In tho telegram he sent
to a rally of business men In Cin
cinnati, "Ours Is an appeal to the
sober second thought of the Ameri
can people." What a compliment to
tho peoplo; how characteristic of
tho man; how true!
Sober Second Thought
Every ground for discontent hus
been canvassed by searchlight aim
m!croscoio; every displaced or am
bitious office secher has expoundsd
to Its limit tho country's good and
Its needs nnd now for tho sober
Will a second thought endorse a
man for leader who advocates a

public affairs, at best, the Democratic
candldato would give place to another

country. And will a secoud thought
place In office a man who sets no Urn
It to tho tenure of office. It Is an ex
periment wo do not care to try. 'Air.
Edison, tho Inventor, says he Is In
fcr tho Progressive plan because he
loves experiment. Are the Amrlcan
people with him?
Discards State Issues
Will tho sober second thought
change, so radically tho practice of
popular government as our opponents
would liavo us do? It was tho Re
publican Party that brought Into ex
istence the referendum, the Inltntlvo
and tho recall for purposes of local
government In tho State where It
tits tho need, but a Becond thought
Is enough to show that Uie problems
of national government are differ
ent In kind as well as degree and
that party that gave the plan Its
origin Is best qualified to judgo
when It Is time to apply it to nation
al affairs. The Republican Party
has been, is, and always will be the
party of the people.
Will Judge Justly
Will second thought be. haish with
us because political bosses have aris
en In the party? Our party has
downed many a corrupt boss in the
past and it will do It again if tho
people will stay with It and help
to d It instead of deserting.
Will Weigh Possibilities
Will a second thought entrust to
other bauds tho management of poli
cies that affect our Industrial life?
A reduction in cost of living Is easi
ly tho foremost motive In this camp
aign. Tariff and Trusts have been
tho constant refrain. Will the Ameri
can people turn nway from the Re
publican party to solvo tho Trust
Problem? Can tho Progressive of

petition as a regulating force In busi

unchecked, relying on government reg.

other extreme, refuses to recognize
changes In Industrial methods and
would placo business back on tho
basis of fifty years ago.
Will tho American people entrust
tho Tariff problem to other hands
