Quite a number of termed "Taft Clubs' 'arc springing up all over fl
the state of Utah. Ostensibly of Republican birth, some of them, it fl
seems, were conceived with a spirit of disloyalty to the so-called dom- fl
inating "bosses" now said to be in control of the Republican machine B
in the state of Utah. In other words, some of the progenitors of the fl
new clubs have thinly masked their intentions under the name as- fl
Mimed, declaring that it is merely an armor plate of protection to shield fl
the independents in the Republican party. Such assumption on the H
part of. their people may be wrong, but judging from the results so fl
far attained, the report must be true. What is expected to be gained fl
is not at this time apparent. Some of the clubs arc going to have can- I
didates; they are going to break slates and crack skulls; they are B
going to compel the erstwhile high and mighty "bosses" to crawl in fl
the mud of fallen mightiness and kowtow to the new power that has B
l iscn. Such moves may be good public policy, but they do not always B
indicate, good judgment. As a friend said to an Irishman, who was B
toiling laboriously up a hill, struggling with a load of wood, swearing B
and complaining: "Pat, suppose the top of the hill were Heaven. B
Would you expect to get there, blaspheming as you do, kicking up the fl
fuss you are?" "Oi dunno whether I'd get there," replied Pat, "but I'd H
raise a of a rumpus trying." It seems that the Taft clubs are B
raising a rumpus all right, but whether they will get there or not seems B
to be the question. B
