H paign, registered a protest against the Taft administration.

H tions of its partisans as to receive a rebuke of that magnitude, tell
H IS THERE NOT SOMETHING WRONG SOMETHING
1 RADICALLY WRONG WITH THE PARTY?
H Three million party men do not rise in protest against their own
H party without extreme provocation.
H What was one of the first offenses to bring about this extraordi-
H nary revulsion in feeling within the party?
H Do you recall with what indignation the people received the dis-
H .closures in the Ballinger case when proof was furnished that Taft,
j .untrue to his trust, had taken up with John Hays Hammond as the
H emissary of the Guggenheims, and had lent his high office to the
conspiracy to rob the American people of their rich heritage in Alas-
Hl 'ka; how later, to close the breach in the party, Taft ingeniously sent
H out a bribe of patronage to Progressive senators, and how, from then
M ,on, the Taft administration stood discredited in the eyes of not only
H a majority of the voters of the Republican parly, but of the nation?
Hl The Standpat Republicans must realize by this time that they
j Btand condemned by a great multitude of their own part- and that
Hj h party thus repudiated is hopelessly marked for defeat.
H A GOOD SUGGESTION.
J Editor Standard: It is often the fellow who gets in the last
P; "vrord, just before election day, wins the votes. That is why I
Hf' write this letter to express ray wish that you, or all of us together,
will appeal to every one who stands for progressive ideals, to write his
friends a few lines to strengthen his spine, and prevent his being
H: "queered" by abuse. I suggest something like this:
"It is only a few days before voting time. Let you and me make
K ihe most of the time by writing a few lines to each of our friends.
HJ I This is the next best thing, to wearing a Bull Moose button, and, in
HI many cases, much better. We like Roosevelt (among other things)
Rf for the enemies he has made. He has as many of them as Washing-
H t0n &nd Licoln had and h has oamed them in the same good old
MM way. Enemies are the chips and shavings that every honest statesman
m , makes while getting things done that are worth while. We want four
m .mow years like those years that gave us the Panama canal, and ir-
H Ingahon, and a score of other good things. Don't let any of your
UWi progressive friends neglect to vote."
H l feel verv flure that, if every Progressive would write his friends
V I in some such way, the results would be large.
M. There will be some big surprises next election night. Tjet's
H oop 'em up now, for a home-stretch. Youra truly, (Signed) C. A.
B That is the right spirit. Every Progressive-from now on should
mE be one of a militant force battling for righteousness.

J THE BULL MOOSE WIN 1
THEY ABE SELF-OONTESSED LIARS.
What a pitiful exhibition the Republican newspapers arc making
in their attempts to prove that the administration of Theodore Roose
velt, extending over a period of seven yCars, was one of corrupt al
liance with the trusts and the railroads.
In their mad desire to inflict injury on their former President,
they are befouling their own nest. They are saying to the American
"See, what a dirty mess our brood has brought you!" "
Then, all unconscious of their absurd position, they right-about
face and exclaim :
"We are proud of the achievements of our party; we t glory in
its every act!"
Four years ago the Republicans of Utah extolled the administra
tion of Theodore Roosevelt as a record of statesmanship never equal
led. Today, the Utah writers for the G. 0. P. are doing all within
their power to prove that the party in this state, when it wrote those
words of praise of Theodore Roosevelt, falsified the records and lied
outrageously. They virtually are saying:
"We have lied to you and we are self-confessed liars, but have
patience with us. We now desire to unfold the truth."
That, we say. is the most pitiful exhibition of political self
stultification of which we have knowledge.
TRYING TO FOOL THE PEOPLE. if
' This morning Mr. Wise-Acre, who wields the doubtful pen on the
Morning Examiner, has an editorial in which be states that Judge
Harmon of Ohio, the late Democratic candidate for President, was the
attorney general of the United States under President Roosevelt and
a member of the Ex-President's cabinet, and that, while acting in that
position, he prosecuted the Santa Fe railroad, and because of that
prosecution President Roosevelt forced Judge Harmon out of his cab
inet. Now that would sound alright if it were made by a twelve-year-old
school boy who had heard his father discussing Cleveland's ad
ministration, but for a man who boasts of his knowledge as does the
editor of the Morning Examiuer, sneeringly asserting that he
knows more than all the people of Ogden combined, this is worse than
a blunder It is in line with the tricks of all the Taft papers, in mis
representing Theodore Roosevelt.
Now, the facts are. Judge Harmon is a Democrat and served as
attorney general under drover Cleveland. As his successor, McKinley
appointed Joseph McKenna of California as attorney general, and
then John W. Griggs, and then Philander C. Knox. Wm. H. Moody
of Massachusetts and Chas. J. Bonaparte of Maryland were the two
attorney generals that Roosevelt had in his cabinet while he was
It is a befuddled mind that would place Cleveland's attorney
general in Roosevelt's cabinet. It is simply an addled brain that
would place Colonel Roosevelt in Grover Cleveland's shoes. Harmon
and Roosevelt never served as president and a cabinet officer m the
same administration. Old Wise-Acre would do well to remember
that Cleveland was President when Harmon was attorney general,
and he also should remember that Wm. H. Moody and Chas. J. Bona
parte were attorney generals while Roosevelt was President.
There is an omission in the Democratic platform that speaks vol
urans. We are told that the Democratic party is anti-trust and
free from the pernicious influences of predatory wealth. This silence
in the platform proves to our mind that Democracy is as closely
bound to "big business" as is the Republican party.
We admit that the Republican party has been closer to Stand
ard Oil and Sugar and Steel than has Democracy, but down South
there is another form of "big business" worse than Standard Oil
or Steel, which fattens on the misfortunes of children. Down in the
cotton mills, children with pinched faces, go to work when they
should be in the kindergarten. Out of the dire necessities of these
little onea and their families the cotton magnates coin dollars that
go to sweu me proms or tile industry. The mills make big money,
but their owners must have child-labor if the profits are to be oxtra
large. These manufacturers are a power in the Democratic party
of the South and the Democracy of the South is the backbone of the i
party in the nation.
When the Democrats met in national convention in Baltimore,
the question of child labor was brought up in the platform commit
tee. Immediately the southern delegates rose to object to a consid
eration of the subject. Enlisted on their side was the Tammany
Hall representation, the Taggart forces and the Sullivan contingent,
and as a result, child labor failed io receive recognition. Not only
that but the following planks in the Progressive platform were
omitted from the Democratic platform.

plication of prison earnings to the support of their dependent families.
The Southern Democracy is an aristocracy wholly out of sym
pathy with the Democracy of the West. Being in control of the
party, the Southern Democrats shape the platforms and neutralize
the power for good of the rest of the party, and, we make this pre
diction, that if Woodrow Wilson is so misfortunate as to be elected,
the Southern Democratc will hang a reactionary millstone around
his neck which will sink him to the bottom-most depths of oblivion.

great interest or corporation."
"On this basis," he added, "I was
prepared to go the limit. 1 believed
my brother was admirably oquipped
for the position. I believed In his In
tegrity, his fearlessness and I be
lieved no one could bulldoze or use
him. The principal thing to be ob
viated was the Influence on any can
didate of any monetary interest"
