Another Taft Journey.
President Taft is going West again
in an endeavor to persuade the peo
ple of that abounding section that
his a dministration of the government
is best for their interests. Hist jour
ney, it is said, will be almost as ex
tensive as was the one made Pzt 1909,
after the enactment of the Payne-Al
drich "tariff revisions" measure,
which he attempted to justify before
the country. The Charleston Evening
Post says "the results of that tour
were scarcely such as to encourage
a new undertaking along the same
line, but Mr. Taft evidently thinks he
may do something, by his personal
appearance and appeal, to move a
sentiment in the We?t favorable to
his interests. The prospect is far
from promising, to the critical obser
"The president appeared before
the country in 1909, less than a year
after his election to office on a plat
form pledging downward revision of
the tariff, to justify the enactment of
a tariff law framed up by Senator
Aldrich to prevent the very purpose
of that pledge, and most successful
ly framed for the purpose of its auth
or. Mr. Taft bad approved that
measure and had given it tue force
of law. He took the stump to justi
fy, it, and he claimed that it was the
best tariff Jaw ever enacted by the
Republican party. His famous Wi
nona speech, in which he extlted the
standpatters and riddled the real re
visionists of his party, gave consider
able of a shock to those who had
hoped for a serious effort on the part
of the President to bring about a re
duction of the tariff.
"It was the general opinion that
Mr. Taft did not improve his politi
cal credit by that swing around the
circle. The next fall the country re
turned a great Democratic majority
to Congress, sent several Democrats
to the Senate, and unmistakably de
clared for true revision of the tariff.
The President responded to the de
mand to the extent of rcom mending
to Congress at its regular se3Bion the
adoption of a reciprocity agreement
he had negotiated with Canada. Con
gress, being in the control cf his own
party, that is to say, being under the
domination of standpatters, failed to
ratify the agreement. The President
[then called the new Congress into
j extraordinary session to consider the
reciprocity agreement, and the Dem
ocrats, being in control of the House
this time, and having an increased
representation in the Senate, - the
agreement was ratified, though the
rank and file of the Presidents own
party opposed it.
"The reciprocity agreement is good
enough as far as it goes, but it goes
only a little way toward relieving
the burdens of the tariff upon the av
erage consumer. The Democrats of
the House, taking seriously and faith
fully the commission given them by
the people, preceeded to proove tar
iff revision, real and direct, and, by
coalition with the progressive Repub
licans of the Senate, there was laid
before the President first a wool re
vision measure, and, second a "far
mers' free list bill," designed to
counteract, so far as the farmer was
concerned, some of the imagined ill
effects upon agricultural Interests of
the reciprocity agreement. The Pres
ident vetoed both measures, out of
hand, saying tnat nothing, should be
done toward revising the tariff until
the commission appointed to investi
gate the whole subject had made a
"Mr. Taft therefore goes before the
country on practically thft same rec
ord he had In -1909, when he made
his long tour. He will undertake to
convince the people that his adminis
tration has been doing all it could
do, and all that should be done, to
reform the tariff laws of. the coun
try and relieve the burden its places
upon the cost of living. He has a
stout piece of work cut nut for him
and it is more than likely that the
road to Democratic control of the
government he began so well in his
tour of the country in 1909 will b<?
pretty well completed by his 1911
trip through the West."

The Commoner says Wall street's
support of a democratic candidate is
liKely to be temporary. In 1904
Wall street seemed very anxious to
help the Democratic pariy?It prom
ised all the money necessary and
these promises circulated at their
"face value at St. Louis. Put when the
convention was over Wall street's ar
dor cooled. Senator Daniel remark
ed after the election th.it some who
were active in securing Judge Park
er's nomination took nc interest af
The promised contributions were
not forthcoming, and just before the
election the financiers? those who
had called themselves Democrats and
those who called themselves Repub
licans?got together and threw their
united support to Roosevelt. And so
it will be again. Wall street will
conircl the democratic convention if
it can, but if it does it will throw
the party down at the polls.
Wall street will not trust the Dem
ocratic party, no matter who is nomi
nated. It isonly, therefore, for the
party to allow Wall street to dictate
the nomination. No Democrat whom
Wall street would support could get
the vote of the rank and file of the
party. The only chance for success
is to nominate a progressive Demo
crat and appeal to the growing pro
gressive sentiment of the country.

The year 1904 was the year of Mr.
Roosevelt's election to the Presiden
cy over Parker. It w;,s the year of
Judge Parker's charges of trust and
corporation contributions to the
Roosevelt campaign fund and of Mr.
Roosevelt's violent denials and equal
ly violent attacks on Judge Parker
for daring to make such charges.
The country did not have to wait
until now to learn of the substantial
truth of the charges and the falsity
of the denials. It soon learned that
Judge Parker told the truth and that
Roosevelt lied. It wat> brought into
some understanding of this the very
next year daring the life insurance
investigations. And now it Is learn
ing more about the matter.
' And now, says the Springfield Re
publican, the country is Deing mov
ed to'ask whether this contribution
of the Steel corporation to the cam
paign of 1904 was mentioned at
White House in that famous inter
view of the panic of 1907, when the
representatives of the Steel trust
sought from the President Executive
indulgence for the acquirlMon of the
great Tennessee-Coal anr' Iron prop
erty, which they had no right to ask, [
and which the President had no busi
ness to grant.
