B SIX HARD, COLD FACTS.
H Fact 1. Taft cannot be elected.
H Fact 2. Eooscvelt can be elected.
H Fact 3. "Wilson might, be elected.
H Fact 4. The election of AVilson surely means tampering with
H the income of the business man, the wage-earner and the rest of the
H American public.
H Fact 5. It is up to the American voter to defend his income,
H upon which must alwaj's depend his outgo.
H Fact 6. The only way for the American voter to defend his in-
H come is to prevent the election of Wilson by voting for Koosevelt.
Hi SHEEPMEN SHOULD BE FOE ROOSEVELT.
Hl Those Republicans who think the maintaining of the tariff is
H essentiaL to the prosperity of the country and who have been for Taft
H would do well to ponder long and seriously over the present political
H outlook. The day of election is only three weeks off and Taft is
H hopelessly beaten. The Republican candidate cannot recover enough
Hl ground in the few days remaining to come within 100 electoral votes
Hl of success. Roosevelt is conceded even by the Democrats to be Wil-
H son's dangerous rival.
H With the choice between Wilson and Roosevelt, to whom should
H the sheepmen, the sugar men and the lead miners of Utah and the
H west throw their strength? Waste it on Taft or aid in electing
H Roosevelt who believes in a reasonable tariff and a fair revision of
HI tho tariff schedules?
H9 There are Standpatters who devote all their time to shouting
Hfl tariff, claiming they are for Taft because Taft is for high tariff. A
3 majority of them are siniply disguising their real motives. They ;ire
M for Taft because they are too strongly partisan to bo freed from parly
H prejudice, and the test of the truth of this statement is to be found,
H now that Taft is out of the running and the one obstacle to Dcnu-
II cratic free trade is Roosevelt, in the fact that those blind Sta-idpat-
H ters continue to blindly throw their votes away when by supporting
H Roosevelt they might do their part to have Taft succeeded by a pro-
H "NEW YORK'S POLICE FORCE.
H The testimony in the Becker murder case, as given by Jack Rose,
H and as presented to its readers by the Standard. Saturday evening,'
H is so startling in its disclosures of police brutality and criminality
H in New York as to cause one to doubt that the great metropolis of the
m United States is a civilized community in which human life is valued
H by the police at much more than that of a dog.
M Rose quotes Becker as saying, when they were discussing how to
m punish Rosenthal for informing on the police, that if he wanted the
m man "beaten up" he would do it himself and have the victim charged
B with resisting an officer.
m This evidence throws a piercing light into the dark comers of
M New York's police force, and suggests an immediate safeguard
H - ' " a a agj
I . THE BULL MOOSE WIN J
against the tremendous power for evil of this privilege of the police
to beat up a man for resisting arrest.
When nn officer has a prisoner in his grasp and helpless and!
sets upon him, prompted by anger or revenge, one of the worst crimes
that could be committed against the law and sooiety ir perpetrated.
To prevent this brutality tin's abuse of power a committee, free
from police influence, should be called on to investigate all alleged
attempts at resisting arrest in which tho one arrested is injured.
No policeman, or othor officer should be allowed to assault a
prisoner unless tho officer is in great peril and uuablo to obtain as
sistance, and no case of assault should be passed by without a thor
The evidence in the Rosenthal murder case tends to prove that
the most desperate gangs in New York were omployed by the police
to commit awful deeds and were protected from punishment except
when punishment was necessary to overawe and demonstrate the
power of the police to " railroad'' the "gunmen" to jail or prison.
There is no record, in all our history of municipal crimes to com
pare with this New York outrage. If the. good people of that city
do not rise up in indignant protest and inaugurate a crusade against
the murderous practices of their police force, they are too indifferent
to their own insecurity to be classed with the best citizens of other
LANDSLIDE FOR ROOSEVELT.
- The Hearst papers are for Wilson and doing all in their power
to elect the Democrat, but occasionally those papers tell the truth.
With the Roosevelt party is John B. Pratt, special correspondent for
Hearst. Mr. Pratt has been on the present Roosevelt tour of the cen
tral states. Last night he sent out Ihe following report to the New
York Journal, which is filled with good cheer for the Roosevelt peo
ple: If the presidential election came this week, Colonel Roosevelt, In the
four states he touched In hiB middle western Invasion the last week, would
likely make a clean sweep of all but one, with a fighting chance to Ret
that, ,too. As it looks to the Roosevelt forces tonight, here is the line
up In the four states now:
Illinois and Michigan sure for Roosovelt.
"VlBconsJn doubtful, with prospects favoring Roosevelt.
Minnesota, doubtful, Inclining toward Wilson.
That Roosevelt has Eteadily gained ground in the four states Is con
ceded "by the Taft and Wilson managers. The Bull Moose wave Is spread,
ing over the entire middle went. If the Roosevelt forces can keep It going
and they are bondine every energv to keep tho flame alive they count
upon a substantial yield of electoral votes from this hotbed of progres-sivism.
In tho far west. President Taft makes a weak showing, in that region,
as against Roosevelt Newspaper polls taken in various cities in tho cen
tral west seem to indicate that the president, in Minnesota and Michigan,
Is slowly getting back into tho race--but ho has a long way to go if he is
to overcome tho tremendous lead Roosevelt has acquired over him.
Every sign points to Taft finishing third In the middle west. In Illi
nois and Wisconsin ho is losing consistently as the campaign passes Into
tho last three weeks the critical period of the fight
All Roosevelt needs to do, if he is to carry Illinois and Michigan, is
to maintain the advantage he has already gained and keep up the fever
ish Interest that is now manifested In his candidacy. If he expects to
carry Minnesota, he must pound down the growing sentiment for Wilson,
which is being helped by a split In the Progressive ranks. Wilson appears
now to be practically certain ot putting Minnesota, in the Democratic col
umn but the Progressives aro on his heels, and a change may come In
tho' noxt three weeks that will turn the state Roosevelt's way.
Pratt says every sign points to Taft finishing third. With states
such as Illinois and Michigan lost to him, Taft's defeat is as certain
as death itself.
The great silent vote of the country indicates a drift from the old
parties that is either for the third party or Socialism. The vote is so
large as to indicate a landslide and there is much to prove that Roose
velt will be the beneficiary.
THOUGHTS ON THE COLONEL'.
(By GEORGE ADE.)
Here are a few random observations concerning the new Pro
gressive party and its candidate for President.
If T were picking out a roommate, I might prefer Mr. Taft to
the Colonel, because, with Mr. Taft, I would have a better chance of
putting up the curtains and arranging the pictures to suit myself.
In selecting a President to go up to Washington, representing my
interests and coping with the shaggy wolves of practical politics, I
prefer the Colonel.
The new party has singing at all of its meetings. Possibly 3rou
can remember when the crowd saug at a Republican rally. If I tried
to sing in the Barnes choirs this year I believe I would choke.
Up at Chicago in June they told us, very plainl : "We are go
ing to drive him out of the party." They got their wish and yet they
don't seem happy.
A good many persons, especially those who wear overshoes in
the summer time, object to the Colonol because he is scrappy aud
assertive. If the Colonel didn't happen to be just what he is. the
sextons who make a business of embalming reformers would have
laid him away twenty years ago.
WEEPING OVER LA FOLLETTE.
The Salt Lake Tribune weeps over La Follette. A year ago
La Follette, in the eyes of the' Tribune editor, was, next to Debs, the
lowest creature on earth. ILatcly that paper has had a change of
Jieart and now cries bitterly every time "Fighting Bob" offers a
lamentation. When the Tribune was belittling La Follette, the
Standard was supporting him, believing in his doctrines and hoping
for his success. But the position of the two papers has been reversed
of late, which may be the better explained by quoting the following
from this morning's Tribune:
'The public has been waiting for some time for the atory of the
betrayal of La Follette by the Roosevelt following It will be ro'
membered that La Follette was originally the ProgreBBivo Repub
lican candidate for the presidency. He protested all the time that
he did not wish to come to the front in this way. 'but as no one
else would take the lead, and as Colonel Roosevelt's friends, ap
parently speaking for the colonel, Insisted upon La Follette going
to the front, he finally consented to do so. Then all at once he
was betrayed by the PInchot and Garfield crowd In the Ohio
state comentlon, where- they, claiming to apeak for him, objocted
to his personal indorsement, and prevented It.
"The whole story Is now told by Senator La Follette iu his
weekly magazine. A former chapter laid tho foundation for this
story, claiming that Roosevelt urged La Folletto to lead the Pro
gressive cause, and then when ho saw La Follette's candidacy
was so strong, Roosevelt undermined it in order to grab the nom
ination for himself."
Roosevelt, of course, encouraged La Follette. So did Pinchot
and Garfield: so did the Standard, because we believed in tlie man's
principles. This support continued until La Follette suffered a men
tal break down on his eastern tour when the fear was expressed
that the man's mind had been shattered; Then it was that the re
form forces began to urge on Roosevelt the necessity of his candidacy.
Before La Follette had regained his mental balance, the campaign
of the Progressives had centered around Roosovelt.
There is the whole story of the betrayal of La Follette.

Faded and Gray Hair
For generations Sage and Sulphur
hav) been used for hair and scalp
troubles. Almost everyone knows tho
value of such a combination for keep
ing the hair a good even color, for
curing dandruff, Itching scalp and
falling hair, and for promoting the
growth of the hair. Years aao the f
only way to get a Hair Tonic of this
kind was to maTce it In the home,
which was troublesome and not al
ways satisfactory. Nowadays, al
most, any up-to-date druggist can sup
ply his patrons with a ready-to-uso
product, skillfully prepared In per- J
fectiv equipped laboratories.
An Ideal preparation of this sort
Is Wyoth's Sage and Sulphur Hair
