j V The Effect.
The flurry that the Hearst revela
tlom brought into the presidential
campaign is problematic in its effect,
but it does not now appear that the
candidate of either the Republican
or Democratic party has suffeied
visible injury. The country still has
confidence in personal integrity of
both Mr. Bryan and Mr. Taft, and
both are entirely free from any taint
of slime that may have been lift in
the trail of the corrupting trusts.
Whatever may be thought of Sena,
tor Foraker or Gov. Haskell, there
can be no proper suspicion in any
candid and wellbalanced mind that
either the Republican or Democratic
presidential candidate has been re
motely influenced by the Standard
Oil monopoly. They are both men
in whose personal honor the nation
can repose the fullest trust.
Mr. Hearst's purpose in reading
the damaging letters which he bad
by some surreptitious method pe-.
culiar to the ways of yellow journ
alism got into his possession, was to
sustain his theory that both of the
old political parties are influenced
by trust curruption and that his In
dependence party can alone be re-
lied upon tc give a clean adminis
stration of public affairs. He suc
ceeded only in tarnishing the re
putation of individuals. There have
been corruptions in all times, and
could not be a great organization in
to which they would net creep.
Even among the twelve chosen by
the Lord was the Iscariot. The
proved iniquities of individual Demo
crats and Republicans give no proof
that Mr. Hearst can organize a
party of political saints. The re
cord of the man who manipulated
the malodorous Buffalo convention
through Murphy and "Fngy" Con
ners, one of whom he had formerly
cartooned in convict stripes; (he-
man who sent Max inmsen ioutn
with a big corruption fund to buy
delegates to the St. Louis convention
in 1904 ; the man who conducts the
yellowest of yellow newspapers, al
ways preferring sensation to the
ttuth; the man who procures his
proofs of others' guilt by methods
repellaut to the, instincts of the
gentleman, can hardly be trusted to
organize an immaculate political
organization. For these reasons it
can hardly be supposed that what
Mr Hearst revealed will in itself do
my damage to the candidacy of Mr.
Bryan or Mr. Taft, or promote the
chances of the Independence party.
These revelations have not advan
tageously advertised Mr. Hisgen
but on the contrary have emphasized
his personal dependence on the man
who nominated him. Mr. Hearst
made a tactical mistake in advertis
ing himself at Hisgen's expense.
He should have had his candidate
read the Archbold letters in order to
procure the best effect for the Inde-
pendencc party, but personal vanity
and the good of the Hearst news
papers appears to have triumphed
over purely political considerations.
Incidentally, it is possible that the
Taft cause may have suffered some
from the precipitate interference of
Mr. Roosevelt. The President has
not damaged Mr. Bryan, but he has
increased the impression that Mr.
Taft lacks individual force and is
the candidate of the administration.
He has, too, unnecessarily antagon
ized a large conservative element
on which Mr, Taft must in great
measure depend for his election,
Mr. Taft's comment on the Hearst
revelations concerning Stntor For-
aker was that he would not strike a
man when he was down. That was
tactful, diplomatic and sufficient.
The known antagonism between Mr.

Taft and the Ohio Senator made the
former safe from any contamination
incident to the Hearst relations, but
Mr. Roosevelt was not willing for it
to rest there. While Mr. Roosevelt
is trying to out-Herod Herod in
courting the favor of the radical
element, he should remember that
the two McKinley elections as well
as his own election in 1904 were
conservative triumphs and that it is
not necessary to prove Mr. Taft the
enemy of organized capital in order
to show that he is free from corrupt
The Hearst revelation have serv'
ed to bring some perturbation into
what was otherwise a remarkably
quiet compaign. They gave quite
a shock to Gen. Apathy, as well
as to public sensibilities. The noise
they created will very likely have
ceased to reverberate before Nov
ember. Neither Bryan nor Taft has
been visibly diminished and Hisgen
Is not in any respect exalted. In
any direct manner the result is not
likely to be affected by anything
Mr. Hearst has revealed.
Stomach troubles would more
quickly disappear if the idea - of
treating the cause, reather than the
effect, would come into practice. A
tiny, inside, bidden nerve, says
Dr. Shoop, governs and gives
strength to the stomach. A branch
also goes to the Heart, and one to
Kidneys. When these "inside ner
ves" fail, then the organs must fal
ter. Dr. Shoop's Restorative is
directed specifically to these falling
nerves. Within 48 hours after start
ing the Restorative treatment pa
tients say they realize a gain. Sold
