That spirit which says let the next

The Times and Democrat is with

time far a fair price for cotton. It
is ready to cooperate with the Far
mers Union to that end. The present
price of cotton is not much if any
more than the cost of production,
and it should be pushed up.
By prosecuting the Steel Trust!
President Taft and Attorney General
Wickersham hope to head the com
mittee appointed by the Democratic
House to investigate that biggest of
all trusts. They are afraid that
the Democratic committee's real in
vestigation would expose the unlaw
ful acts of that huge corporation,
while their fake prosecution will
shield it from exposure.
There was a time when if a man
pleaded that he was intoxicated when
he committed a crime he was usually
acquitted or got off with a nominal
sentence. It is getting to be differ
ent now. For a man to show that he
was drunk is no longer accepted as a
palliation, rather it is regarded as an
aggravation of the offence. All of
which goes to show both Che growth
of temperance sentimein and a saner
view of justice.
What may be the result of the gov
ernment suit against the Steel Trust
no one can tell. But it is significant
and not altogether convincing that no
criminal action has been taken
against the members of the trust,
which probably explains the fact that
no one attempted to evade service.
I! :s safe to say that if a criminal suit
' 'A been instituted there would have
1 - n some scurrying to get out of the
y.uy of deputies.
Taft Given the Cold Hand.
That despairing wail at Chicago
was a clear indication that President
Taft was not pleased with the result
of his trip out west, from which he
had just returned when he admitted
in a speech at Chicago that the Re
publican party might be defeated in
the next presidential election. As a
matter of fact the President had
been given the cold hand wherever
he went, and he felt 'bad about it.
Take California* for instance. It is
admitted by Republicans themselves
that in her recent election California
administered the most Impressive re
buke ever received by a Republican
President from a Republican State,
when that State voted as it did on the
initiative, referendum and recall, the
latter Including the judiciary.
Vice President Sherman in com
menting on the President and-the
California incident, is quoted as say
ing that he felt that the adoption by
California of the newer ideas, such as
the recall, at the very moment the
President was out on the coast, Indi
cated that the Republicans may look
for trouble In the next campaign.
"We have felt and hoped," said he,
"that California wlas solidly for Pres
ident Taft and all of his ideas, and
this recent election gives us a new
light. President Taft's message up
on the recall will be found to be one
of the great state papers of our gov
! ernment. It will stand as a master
piece in statesmanship, and the prin
ciples enunciated therein will be
found as time passes on, to be as
sound as any ever given to the people.
That his ideas were not accepted by
the people of California shows mark
ed disaffection, which I think all reg
ular Republicans will deeply regret.
Governor Johnson, of California,
took direct issue with Mr. Taft, who
alluded to the recall of judges as the
law of tie mob. In his speeches
Johnson asked "who are the mob?
That's the question I've been asking
all along the line, and chat's what I
can't find out. Mob indeed; we are
all the mob.^ As used by our Presi
dent it means a great division of the
electorate that is not fit to govern;
that is fit to be ruled <by another
smaller class, a governing class. If
we've reached that condition we've
reached a crisis in the history of free
government. But we've^not reached
it and that sort of talk arises from in
dividual egotism and is a survival of
traditions from the old days when
you had to crawl before power. The
very first requisite of the recall Is
that it touches not only the govern
or and the legislator but the judici
ary as well and makes this judiciary
responsive to the people.
"I reverence and respect the courts
just so long as they deserve respect
and reverence., and no longer, and
that's the only kind of respect that
can be paid any man in our govern
ment. When you create a class to
govern in this country just that in
stant you violate a fundamental prin
ciple on which we founded this gov
ernment and you strike a blow at lib
erty itself. It's a survival of the old
worship of power. The rabble and
the mob! We're all the rabble and
the mob in this country, and the pres
ent design of the government of this
state is that you shail all participate
in it." That is the way the* Republi
can Governor of California talked
with the Republican President In the
State feeling the political pulse. That
was not all. As soon as the people
of California got a chance at the bal
lot box they endorsed what their gov
ernor had said by adopting the re
call by a vote of over three to one.
After this direct slap In the face by
the Republican State of California, do
you wonder that the President feels
shaky on his political legs and 6ees
defeat staring him in the face?
The Recall W'orks Well.
It is claimed by some that the
adoption of the recall would have a
most disastrous effect on the judges
and the stability of the courts. We
do not see it that'way. As the San
Francisco Bulletin says this amend
ment would give the people power to
revoke the commissions of elective
judges who had proved themselves
incompetent or corrupt. The special
interests object to the people assum
ing such power. When they get a
?tool or a prejudiced friend on the
bench they would have such judges
insured agrainst removal. The peo
ple want a square deal. The exper
ience of Oregon, where the recall has
?been in operation four years, but has
never been invoked against a judicial
officer demonstrates that only a wide
spread belief in a judge's dishonesty
would bring about the summary rev
ocation of his commission, but the
special interests and the slaves of tra
dition who are helping them in their
fight still profess to believe that the
people are n?t to be instructed with
?the responsibility of deciding whether
elective judicial officers are fit or un
fit to wield the power which has been
intrusted to them by the votes of
their fellow-citizens. Plainly the
special interests want more than a
One Day Long Enough.
The suggestion that presidential
inauguration ceremonies should last a
week is likely to meet with scant fav
or. The motives for the suggestion
are either mercenary or unpatriotic.
With the business men of Washing
ton the idea is financial as they would
doubtless reap a big pecuniary 'har
vest by its adoption. Then, there is
a class in this country that is gener
ally attracted by the old world pomp
and pageantry and to that class an
aping of coronation and court cere
monies, as such an inauguration as
proposed would surely be, would be
very gratifying. But fortunately,
the suggestion is never likely to be
seriously considered. As a matter of
fact, instead of introducing more
ceremonies at great public functions
like inaugurations ot presidents and
goverm'here is probably a general
feeling that there has already been
too great a departure from that dem
ocratic simplicity which should al
ways mark republican institutions.
And in truth there is far mors digni
ty *amd Impressiveness In a fitting
simplicity than in an overloaded
pomp and costuming of elaborate
functions such as an old world coro

Rivesville, W. Va.T?Mrs. Dora Martin,
In a letter from Rivesville, writes:
"For three years, I suffered with wo
manly troubles, and had pains in my
back and side. I was nervous and
could not sleep at night
The doctor could not help me. He
said I would have to be operated on be
fore I could get better. I thought I
would try using Cardui.
Now, I am entirely well.
I am sure Cardui saved my life. X
will never be without Cardui in my
home. I recommend it to my friends."
For fifty years, Cardui has been re
lieving pain and distress caused by wo
manly trouble. It will surely help you.
It goes to the spot?reaches the
trouble?relieves the symptoms, and
drives away the cause.
If you suffer from any symptoms of
womanly trouble, take Cardui.
