WOODROW WILSON, PRESIDENT
The people of the United States have spoken, and they have spoken in
no unmistakable terms. i
So far as the nation was concerned, the Times had no fear of the out
come, the people couldn't lose. Following the overthrow of the bosses, by
Bryan and Wilson, in the democratic convention, it was certain that at
last a great party freed from special interest control would be the winner.
At that time the Times printed the editorial which is re-published today
Readers should remember that this editorial was written before the Pro
gressive part}' with its human rights platform was organized. The editorial
Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey, nominated for president by the People
in defiance of Wall Street on a platform written by William Jennings Bryan,
the People's great leader.
William Howard Taft nominated for president by Wall Street in defiance
of the People on a platform written by the creatures of privilege. These are
the alternatives between which the voters of this nation will be called upon
to choose when they go to the polls next November.
Out of the strife and turmoil of the conventions at Chicago and Balti
more have been born the candidates and the issue.
Wall Street's victory at Chicago was as clean cut as was the people's
victory at Baltimore. '
Afthough the People represented by the progressives were read out of
the republican party, at Baltimore, Wall Street, represented by Ryan, Bel
mont and Murphy, was read out of th c democratic party. At Chicago the
Wall Street candidate was nominated and the Wall Street platform adopted,
not orjy without the assistance but against the protest and in defiance of
every progressive delegate and influence.
At Baltimore the people's candidate was nominated and the People's
platform adopted not only without the assistance but against the protest
and defiance of every Wall Street delegate and influence. At Chicago Taft
bared his chest and invited Wall Street to brand him with a dollar mark.
At Baltimore Wilson and Bryan received the branding iron from Wall
Street and hurled it into the gutter. The words republican and democratic
mean less today than ever before in the history of the party.
Before the election in November they ought to mean nothing. Every
voter in this country who believes in a government of the people, by the
people, and for the people, irrespective of his past political affiliations
ought to vote for Woodrow Wilson. Every voter in this country who believes
in a government of privileges by Wall Street dollars, irrespective of his
past affiliations, ought to vote for Taft. The issue is as clean cut as a
cameo. The result in our opinion is as certain as that the election will be
With absolute confidence that Wilson would win the election, the Times'
only ho^ was that the Progressive party, after it was formed, would poll a
vote expaxisive enough and substantial enough to make it the opposing
party. In this the Times was not disappointed. The Progressive party be
comes the second party, and the Republican party passes.
DIVORCE AND CHILD
Bitty per cent of the boys in the Ohio reformatory at Mansfield, says the
superintendent, are victims of divorce. .
So common is the idea that marriage and divorce are affairs concerning
only the parties directly involved that this statement comes as a startling
Much has been said about the responsibility of parents toward their
children. But there is just as real a responsibility toward the public. The
moral poison of divorce is injurious to all society. It is here shown to be a
polluted fountain of delinquency and crime.
The mere responsibility to children has no force unless the responsibility
of husband to wife and wife to husband and of both to society is also recog
Many men and women seem to regard matrimony as a bargain to be
retracted if it is bad and to be kept if nothing better turns up, with regard
for no interest but their own.
Personal happiness is not the great end of marriage. It's real end is the
production of the world's moral growth.
Marriage and divorce are not mere family affairs, and cannot be such, so
long as every stratum of society is vitally affected by them.
It's all over but the paving of the
