The department of agriculture at
Washington seem to have it in for
the cotton farmer this year. It has
done all it can to hurt the price of
the staple, even resorting to wild
guesses of a huge crop to do so. In
its last report it again predicted a
large crop. We have no confidence
whatever in the department. The
facts brought out in the pure food

Taft and tho Middle West.
The Chicago Tribune has adopted
a novel method of testfng public
sentiment, using President Taft's
tour of the West as the basis of the
experiment. The Tribune has put
its best staff correspondent on the
trail of the President. Instead of
going along with hte President's
party and gaining his impressions of
public sentiment from the cheering
r.nd shouting, the seethi:ig crowds,
the brass bands and the banners,
this correspondent travels a few
days behind. He drops into the
towns that the President has visit
ed and talks to all sorts and condi
Licns of persons about the President
and his soeeches.
Thus this staff correspondent, in
stead of feeling the public pulse
while the fever is at its height, makes
his diagonis alter the patient's con
dition has returned to normal. He
gets the sane, considered after
thought of the people instead of the
somewhat hysterical effervescence
that the presence of the Nation's
Chief Executive usually brings to the
surface in any community. The re-'
suit of this correspondent's observa
tions has brought to light two condi
tions, the existence of which has
long teen suspected by wise pcl/ti
One of these conditions is a nota
ble lukewarmness toward the Presi
dent in the Middle West. The peo
ple have no particular animosity to
ward him, but they suspect that he
is not the man for the job. This
sentiment has been deepened rather
than lessened by the speeches of the
President. The Middle West believes
that Mr. Taft should not be renomi
nated and that if he is renominated
he will not be re-elected. The sec
ond noteworthy condition found by.
the Tribune's correspondent is that
the Middle West believes in Governor
Wcodrow Wilson and hopes fov his
nomination by the Democratic party.
"According to the progressives,"
writes this correspondent from
Hutchinson, Kan., "the Republicans
are in grave danger of losing Kan
sas. They say Wood row Wiison eas
ily could carry the State against
Taft." Again, this correspondent
writes, "The Democrats entertain
growing hopes of carrying Kansas.
Wslson is generally favored a:< the
candidate." Similar expressions run
all through this trained observer's
dispatches describing the effect of
Mr. Taft's visit on the public mind
after the people have had time to re
flect on what the President hat said.
It should be remembered that the
Tribune is one of the most indepen
dent newspapers politically in the
world and its greatest pride is in
giving political news that Is "abso
Why They Go to War.
We have been asked why has Italy
and Turkey gone to war. Really we
dc .not know unless it be as the Au
0..sta Chronicle says Italy has deter
mined to get another gold brick in
the form of that sand-blown, water
less, unshaded and thoroughly quar
relsome little country, Tripoli. Just
why Italy desires Tripoli as a colony
is difficult to explain. In fact it is
pot easy to figure out why anybody
should want Tripoli for any purpose,
or why even the mongrel population
of one million Moors, Arabs a;.J Ber
bers continue to live there.
Tripoli consists of four hundred,
t.housaud square miles, most of it
sand. It is bounded on the oast by
the libyan Desert and on the- south
by the Sahara Desert and every time
the wind blows from either of those
directions it brings more sand to
Tripoli. Tripoli has no rvers. A
Tripoli. Tripoli has no rivers. A
few straggaling puddles in the rainy
season. There are also some springs
that last the year round, and there
are fertile spots scattered in the sand.
Tripoli is cxtrpmely hot in the sum
mer time, and cold rains make the
interior unpleasant most of the win
Sheep and cattle raising occupy
the attention of tha" small propor
tion of the population which is un
able to gain admission to the bri
gans' union. Chasing sheep herders
over the sand hills furnishes diver
sion for the brigands and exercise for
I the sheepherders. A century ago
piracy was one of the favorite out
door sports in Tripoli, but a small
fleet of American war vessels per
manently discourage that profitable
amusement in 1S05.
Tripoli nominally is under the
control of the Turkish government,!
which means that a governor or bey.
whose ancestors were appointed by
the sultan, extorts all the money
possible from the sheep herders and
brigands and, if times are good and
he feels like it, sends a small rebate
to the sultan. None of :he Euro
pean countries have shown any signs
of becoming green-eyed ever these
Italina colonies. From a sternly
material standpoint they have not
been' successes. But Italy has the
colonizing lice, and the chance to
acquire four hundred thousand
square miles more of sand, trouble
and expense is too good to be over
looked. The Italians jus^ can't re
Must Be Americans Ouly.
One may easily understand and ap
preciate the deep devot1.on which
American citizens of for.'irn birth
may retain for their native hind. It
would be strange and even reprehen
sible if that affection were lost. The
desire to retain and teach their chil
dren the language and many of the
customs of the old lands is also nat
ural. But it is a different matter
when all this is allowed to affect the
political ideas and action of such
citizens. Now and again we read of
prominent men of this or that na
tionality urging their comrades to
combine as a political unit, not as
Americans but in their old world
nationality and speech.
Such advice and such action is al
together at variance with our Ameri
can spirit and ideals. The first and
only allegiance of American citizens,
whether native of foreign born, is to
the government of this country. Any
person, whether he be English, Ger
man, Pole, French, Irish, etc., who
becomes nominally an American cit
izen, but refuses to become so in
spirit and deed has no moral right on
these shores. And politicians born
in other countries who appeal to the
prejudices and preferences of their
compatriots and seek their perpet
uation are playing false to their
