IT'S EITHER TAFT OR WU,SON.
Either Mr. Taft or Mr. Wilson
will be elected.
The issue is between the Republi
can and the Democratic parties and
The so-called "third party" Is an
individual not a party. It repre
sents merely Roosevcltism. It Is
"obstructive," not "progressive."
Tho self-created candidacy of Mr.
Roosevelt Is In dofiance of revered
tradition; in violation of precedent;
is purely and Bolely personal; and
will' be and should be unmistakably
Mr. Roosevelt's candidacy Is
founded on a broken pledge to the
people that he "would not again seek
the presidential office; and on a
broken 'friendship for Mr. Taft,
which dates from tho time ho found
that Mr. Taft refused to be dominat
ed or dictated to.
The purpose of Mr. Roosevelt is
clearly apparent it is merely to
defeat Mr. Taft.
A vote for Mr. Roosovolt Is worse
than a wasted vote, for It simply
means a vote for Air. Wilson and
for tho Democratic party.
What, then, are the plain, practi
cal issues of tho campaign?
What are wo YOU to vote for?
You are to chooso between tho
policies as well as the personalities
of Mr. Taft and Mr. Wilson.
These TWO, and only these two.
(Because a Roosevelt vote Is a Wil
son voto. )
You are to say by your Tote
whether you prefer Taft, and Safe
ty or Wilson, and Danger!
A vote for Mr. Taft and his poli
cies Is a vote to continue our pres
ent prosperity to settle tho tar
in problem for all time by taking
It out of the bands of politicians and
putting it on a business basjs to
strengthen and perfect our control
of tho trusts to uphold economy
and efficiency of government service.
To vote for Mr. Wilson and the
Democratic party Is to invite a re
turn of exactly tlio same influences
that demoralized tho entire country
Again wo eay, " Let us hold fast
to that which wo know Is good."

WILSON AND PENSIONS.
(From the Omaha Bee.)
To the Editor of the Bee: Being a
reader of the Bee, I would like
space in which to speak of the letter
written to Woodrow Wilson by Hoke
Smith of Georgia, in which ho asked
Mr. Wilson to state how he stood on
the pension question. His reply Is
"Will say In answer to your In
quiry as to pensions that I am very
much opposed to the great expense
In the increase of pensions. I am
not in favor of anyone drawing a
pension who Is financially able to
take care of himself. I am In favor
of all old soldiers, who are not ablo
to work and have not means to take
care of themselves, being sent to the
Soldiers' Homo In the State In
which they live. I think that all of
those who are ablo to take care of
themselves should bo dropped from
tho rolls. If I should bo elected I
will do all In my power to keep the
expenses of tho Government down to
the lowest notch. As to the Confed
erate soldiers, I am in favor of each
State passing a bill to pension all
of those that are not able to take
care of themselves."
This was taken from a newspaper
printed In Georgia.

He corrected it by saying that tho

N. B. Spencer took the stand again
to state that the revolver was a 32

Attorney William II. Lee, for tho
defense, made a motion to have Mrs.
Dolphin, the only eye-witness to tho
tragedy, take the stand for the pros

The district attorney answered by
saying that ho had subpoenaed tho
