FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8,
THOUGHT FOR TO-DAY.
The object of true cdurntlon is not
merely to make people do tho right
things, but enjoy tho right things;
not merely pure, but to lovo purity;
not merely Just, but to hunger and
thirst after Justice.

THE DEMOCRATIC VICTORY.
No one will begrudge our friends
tho Democrats the pleasure they are
deriving over their victory at the
polls. Nor will any one wish any
thing save the best of good fortune
and success In his conduct of affairs
to President-elect Woodrow Wilson.
Ho Is able, clear-headed, upright,
no political past to rise up and
plague him. And while his lack of
experience in political affairs will be
a handicap to him, at the same time
his freedom from political entangle
ments should be of great benefit.
There is no reason why his adminis
tration of affairs should not 'be con
ducted on a High plane, to the best
interests of all tho people, provided
ho and his party leaders act wisely,
and with extreme caution in the
matter of tariff revision, and hold

But in tho eyes of tho world such

principles Is a melancholy exchange
for the universal admiration for a
man who, after exercising tho high
est power In tho Republic, achieving
great things and performing great
services, retired to private life com
mending to the people tho wisdom of
tho tradition which forbade that he
should again bo President.
Mr. Taft in his defeat may Justly
feel satisfaction in having achieved
something greater than a re-election.
He has stood faithful to principle. He
has held the Republican party true
to its noble traditions. Ho has pre
vented tho judicial power of tho
country from being made subservient
to the changing whims of tempor
ary majorities. He has preserved to
the powerless the guarantees of per
sonal liberty against tho tyranny of
passion. Ho has moved serene amid
misrepresentation and abuse, dis
charging his duty as he saw it and
refusing to do anything for spectacu
lar political effect at a time when
Tho Federalists were in power
twelvo years; Jefferson Republicans,
twenty-four years; Democrats, since
Lincoln's time, eight years. Now
for four years more.
.... ... demagogy was in demand. Ho will
congratulated on meir success iu , . , ,
winning votes. As they could hard'
ly have hoped for success in the elec
tion, they are therefore not greatly j
disappointed. Indeed the purpose of I
their leaders, as Indicated by them,
was not so much to win the election
of Roosevelt as to prevent the re
election of President Taft and the
continuance of tho Republican par
ty in power. In this they have suc
ceeded, and they are entitled to such
satisfaction as they can derive from
thl3 fact. Tho Republican party
was defeated, not by the Democrats,
but by Col. Roosevelt and his fol
lowers. When the excitement has
died away, and the magnetism of an
attractive personal leadership has
become dulled, and sober second
thought in the face of a Democratic
administration has taken tho place
of sincere but mistaken Impulse, the
great body of Republican voters, who
have for the time being been led
away by the noise and glitter and
promises of the new party, will drift
back to the old safe and permanent
party home. For the Republican
party will continue to be as it has
been for a generation, one of tho
great parties of this country, with a
record of splendid achievement he
fore It as well as in tho past.
Let us cherish no resentment or
ill will, but set about to reform our
ranks, and make ready for future
success, welcoming all who desire to
onron under our banner and partici
pate with us in tho work which we
shall do to make this a country of
prosperous and contented people.

were never before so well enforced,
whose expenditures have been cut
down, whose governmental methods
have 'been systematized and made un-
precedentedly efficient, whoso general
prosperity and happiness are at a
high pitch. His trust is faithfully
As for Mr. Wilson, he has large if
indefinite promises to redeem. He
is to reduce tho cost of living without
reducing the stream of individual in
comes. He is radically to cut down
tho tariff without injuring business.
He is to abolish trusts and restore
general competition. He will carry
out the sacred pledge tho radical
platform which Bryan made for him
at Baltimore. Behind him will bo a
Congress as undisciplined and hard
to lead in sane paths as that which
confronted Mr. Cleveland. His task
is difficult. That he may perform It
with credit to himself and honor to
the country is our most sincere wish.

to ask the leaders of tho progres

Republican party and tho defeat of
William H. Taft
Mr. Roosevelt and his followers
began on tho assumption that they
could convinco tho voters of this
country, in times of prosperity, that
a nation was being badly treated,
that thero was a great lack of Jus
tice, that the rights of man wero
being Invaded, that tho rights of
women wero nil, that generally tho
country wns on tho vergo of damna
tlon and that Mr. Roosevelt and Mr.
Johnson woro tho only persons who
could save It from perdition. .
In tho campaign which they havo
conducted very hard blows havo
been given and taken. Mr. Roose
velt has entirely changed his visiting
list. Ho has broken practically all
his friendships of a life-time, and ho
has fallen In his ambition to have a
third term as President. Ho has
caused numerous of his newer
friends to spend their prlvato for
tunes like water, and ho has creatod
a feeling of distrust of American in
stitutions in tho minds of a largo
number of persons.
But, fortunately, that largo num
ber of persons is a very small mi
nority of tho total citizenship of tho
United States. The constitution still
stands, tho government still lives,
and It is to bo hoped that courso of
prosperity will continue.
Was it worth while? Out of tho
wreckage of tho Republican party
