WILL BE SHORT LIVED
SENATOR CULDERSON'S OPINION
OF THE NEW PARTY.
Texas Statesman Telia Why He Sees
In It No Menace to Either the
Dernocrats or .the Re
publicans. Sonutor Charles A. Culberson of
l'oxns, ono of thu Democratic leaders
In thu senate, sees no menace to etthor
tho Democratic or tho Republican par
ty In tho now third party movement
launched by Co'lonol Roosevelt. The
ttcnator from Texas, who Is a careful
observer of political sentiment, was
discussing with somo colleagues tho
probablu effect on future politics of
tho recent conforonco . of Colonel
Roosevelt and tils friends In Chicago.
Senator Culborson did not sbnro the
anxiety of some of his political asso
ciates that Colonel Roosevelt would
mako trouble for the Democracy In
"There aro somo fundamental con
siderations which convince mo that
the now jiarty will bo comparatively
short lived," said Senator Culberson.
"This purty rcstB In tho llrst place on
tho personal nnd political fortunes of
ono man. This Is manifest, and no
amount of loud contrary assertion can
change this patent fact. Ho fought for
the nomination of the. Republican par-'
ty, would have ncceptevbit,, If ho could
havo obtained it, and oiil? organized
tho new party in sheer desperation to
reach thy presidency again.
"Tho party was proposod and estab
lished to gratify his dangerous and
vaulting ambition and necessarily wilt
perish with it. Its dissolution will be
hastened by tho fnct that it is founded
on false principles and revolutionary
doctrines which nro destructive of
sound and stablo government. Thou
sands of people voted for Rqosovolt at
the Inst election who as an Independ
ent proposition object to tho chnractor
of government ho would erect. Tho
man was stronger than tho form of
government he would establish.
"Such basic and enduring party prin
ciples as a centralized general gov
ernment and n protective tariff, which
are hinted at but not Htresscd In Its
platform, will naturally ho monopol
ized by tho Republican party. This will
bo so because, among other reasons,
tho Republican party lias pre-empted
tho ground and really helloves In thoso
principles moro strongly than the
Roosevelt party, especially 113 to n
"In addition to this thero will al
ways be something to thousands and
their descendants In tho name Repub
lican party, Just as thero will bo to
thousands In tho unmo Democratic
party, which they will not throw off.
Kffectlvo appeals will still be made to
tho memory of Lncoln, to tho abolition
of slavery and to tho overthrow of se
cession. Tho Republican party, there
fore, as 1 view tho situation, hns about
it nnd in its origin and history far
moro of an enduring and appealing
character, and in tho end will reassort
Itself as the natural nnd logical foo
of Its old antagonist, tho Democratic,
"Tho only thing which could pro
long tho llfo nnd mako tho Roosevelt
party dangerous In 1910, nnd that Is
not to bu thought of, Is thu failure of
tho Incoming Democratic national ad
ministration to meet public expecta
tion and to redeem its obligation to re
storo their government to tho peo
ple." THIS ARGUMENT IS ABSURD
Champions of Privilege Say Wilson,
Being "Minority President," Must
Not Disturb Tariff.
Newspaper champions of privilege
are still repeating tho abanrd argu
ment that Woodrow Wilson will bo a
"minority president," and therefore
has no right to disturb the sacred tar
iff swindle which has fattened bloated
fortunes and built up trusts.
Tnrilf gluttons forget that thero
havo been other "minority presidents."
Abraham Lincoln was one. Lincoln
got only 39.9 per cent, of tho total pop
ular vote In ISfiO. Wllcon got -13.5 per
cent, of tho total vote of 1912.
The nrgument which denies Wil
son's right to recommend and sign
bills revising tho tariff would condemn
Lincoln for saving the Union and abol
ishing slavery. Comment Is needless.
Must Swallow All Radicals.
Thero is permanently rpom in this
pr any other democratic country for
only two groat parties. Tho Progres
sives doBlro to bo one. Thoy can bo
by linking to thomsclvos tho rest of
tho radical and revolutionary fac
tious. Only to Retain Offices.
Tho Democrats at Washington nro
Justified In condemning tho partisan
sTilp which loads tho president to ex
tend tho civil service when that ex
tension had no higher purpose than
Iho retention of Republican appointees,
i Mr. Hrynn, In the Commoner.
Rely on Wilson's Tact.
In 1892 tho Democratic party won
n victory when It wnu a bundle of fnn
tlons and not n party at all. Tho re
sult was disaster. Wo aro hopeful of
better results this tlmo, not becnuso
thoro Is more unity, but because we
havo reason to bellovo tho president
elect has moro tact than tho last
Democratic president had. Ho Is not
polng to attempt to dvo those who
way not agreo with him, but conciliate
them. Ho will roconcllo differences
.rnther than hammor thoso who seem
to bo out of harmony with him.
It Is Well Worth It
Tho Republican papers may ns well
stop stressing tho circumstance that
It cost ?1,109,-UG to elect Woodrow
Wilson. Wo havo had moro than $7,
000,000 worth ot satisfaction out ot It
It Is eafo to predict a notahlo ad
ministration from such a mar as Wil
son. It Is safe to say that ho will on
rich tho nohlo traditions of tho Whlto
Houbo. It Is safe to say that his only
troubles will spring from tho very
qualities that glvo him strength.
EXTENDING THE AGRICULTURAL
AREA IN WESTERN CANADA.
For Bomotlmo past tho Canadian
government has had surveyors at
work platting now areas for tho ac
commodation of tho largely Increas
ing number of settlers coming In to
occupy tho agricultural districts of
tho threo pralrlo provinces. Thero
wero thoso connected with tho work
of securing settlors for western Can
ada who last spring prophesied that
thero would bo as many ns 170,000
now settlers from tho United States
to Canada during tho present year,
and thoro wero thoso who doubted
that tho provlous year's figures of
132,000 could bo increased. Recent
computation made by tho officials of
the Immigration branch at Ottawa
show that the largest estimates made
by officials will be beaten and thnt
the 200,000 mark from tho United
States will bo reached. Ac great an
increase will bo shown In tho figures
of thoso who will reach Canada from
other countries this year. Tho re
sults of tho year's work In Canadian
Immigration will glvo upward of a
total of -100,000 souls.
Dut this is not to he wondorod at
when it Is realized what is offering in
tho three pralrlo provinces and also
In tho coast province of nrltlsh Co
lumbia, which Is also bidding strong
ly and successfully, too, for a certain
class of settler, tho settler who
wishes to go Into mixed farming or
fruit raising. When tho central por
tion of this provlnco Is opened up by
tho railway now being constructed
thoro will bo largo areas of splendid
land available for the settler.
Rcfcrcnco has frequently been mado
of lato by thoso interested in develop
ing tho American west to the largo
numbers who are going to Canada,
high officials In somo of tho railways
being amongst tho number to glvo
volco to tho fact. Tho more these
facts become known tho moro will
people seek tho reasons and theso
aro best given when ono reads what
prominent people say of it. What tho
farmer thinks of It and what his
friends sny of It. James A. Flaherty,
eupremo knight of tho Knights of Co
lumbus, was In western Canada a
short tlmo ago. Ho says:
"If I were a young man I would
sell out my interests In less than two
months and como right to tho Cana
dian Northwest', whero so many op
portunities nbound." Advertisement.

THE BEST TREATMENT FOR
ITCHING SCALPS, DANDRUFF
AND FALLING HAIR
To allay Itching and Irritation of tho
scalp, prevent dry, thin and falling
hair, remove crusts, scales and dan
druff, and promote tho growth and
beauty of tho hair, tho following spe
cial treatment is most effective, agree
able and economical. On retiring,
comb tho hair out straight all around,
then begin at tho sldo and mako a
parting, gently rubbing Cutlcura oint
ment Into tho parting with a hit ot
soft flannel held over tho end of tho
finger. Anoint additional partings
about halt an Inch apart until tho
wholo scalp has been treated, tho pur
pose being to get tho Cutlcura Oint
ment on tho scalp skin rather than on
tho hair. It Is well to place a light
covering over tho hair to protect tho
pillow ftom possible stain. The next
morning, shampoo with Cutlcura Soap
nnd hot wntor. Shampoos nlono may
bo used ns often as agreeable, hut
onco or twlco a month Is generally
sufflolent for this special treatment
