POINf AND COUNTERPOINT
That thick nnd thin Republican
party organ at Columbus, the Ohio
State Journal, Is unhappy bocauffo
President Tnft has doclared In favor
of tho return of Senator Dick to tho
U. S. sennto.
"Tho people of Ohio will not accopt
with goood grace President Tnft's sug
gestion that Senator Dick be returned.
to tho U. S. sennto, nnd If that advlco
Is sufllclontly urged tho Republi
can parly will suffer for It," says tho
Journal In a burning editorial.
Lot tho Journal bo calm. President
Taft lias dono nothing yet which tho
peoplo of Ohio could accopt with good
grace, and tho Republican party can
not possibly suffer more from nny ad
vlco ho may give hereafter thnn It
will from advlco ho has nlroady given.
"Sonntor Dick's attltudo on tho
great Issues of tho past two years has
not commended Itself to tho peoplo of
Ohio," soys tho Journal In tho samo
And yet Scnntor Dick's attltudo on
tho great Issues of tho past fow years
sooms to comparo qulto favorably
with tho attltudo of that othor great
statesman, Thoodore Burton, whom
,tho Journal did all In Its power to
havo sent to tho U, S, senate as a
proper exponent of tho Republican
party In Ohio.
"If ho has not favored tho measur
es demanded by tho Interests, his op
position has been so fnlnt as not to
mako hla prosenco felt," says tho
Journal of Dick In tho samo burning
And yet Dick has dono about as
woll as hla follow senator, Mr. Bur
ton, hns dono In that respect. Tho
votes of both senators on tho now
tnrlff hill show that Mt. Burton's op
position wns so faint as not to mako
his prosenco felt and tbnt ho voted
with Altlrlch almost as many times ns
"What Ohio wnnts Is a man who Is
a friend of tho peoplo, n man of posi
tive faith, a man who Is tho roal thing
In tho ranks' of, progress," says tho
Journal In tho same burning editorial.
That Is tho kind of a man Ohio will
hnvo If peoplo will only mako suro of
n Domocrntlc majority In both branch
es of tho noxt legislature. Burton Is
abundant proof that nothing better
'can bo expected If tho legislature Is
Republican, for If not Dick It may bo
Ilorrlek, or Brother Charles, or Just.
aB had, or worso.
If tho peoplo of Ohio really want
anything bettor lot them olect a Dem
ocratic legislature next time.

attempt to convince tho trust officials
that thoy sho'ild bo good and sho.w
