TAFT'S MESSAGE TO NATION.
"I am very grateful for the honors
the people have given me. I do not
affect to deny the satisfaction I
should feel, if, after casting up the
totals, pro and con, and striking a
balance, they should decide that my
first term had been fruitful enough
of good to warrant their enlisting me
for another. Any man would be
proud of such a verdict.
"But I have not been willing, nor
shall I be, to purchase it at the sacri
fice of my freedom to my duties as I
"My happiness is not dependant on
holding any office; and I shall go
back to private life with no heart
burnings if the people, after an un
prejudiced review of my administra
tion, conclude that someone else can
serve them to their greater advant
Mr. Taft is an honest, brave chief
executive always doing his duty as
he sees it. He has accomplished much
during the past three years and will
accomplish more during another
THE LABOR UNIONS.
Nothing has stirred the whole
United States in months as did the
confession of the McNamaras at Los
Angeles. Now they have gone to
San Quentin to begin their terms of
sentence in the penitentiary but the
effect of their confessions is yet to
be determined on the labor unions,
the organizations most closely con
nected. Of the labor unions Good
win's Weekly says:
As it seems to us the labor unions
are standing at the parting of the
For a long time in the Western
Federation of Miners, the violent
and conscienceless men in the organ
ization were the leaders and direct
ors, and they perpetrated many out
rages in several states.
A bad lot has been in control of
the Iron men. The I. W. W's we do
not include In any legitimate organi
sation. It was organized by men
who were not only determined to
have something for nothing, but to
have the lion's share.
But the great majority of men in
labor unions in our country are as
good men as live in any country and
only demand a square deal. When
we say the unions are at the parting
of the ways, we mean that since the
unmasking in Los Angeles, the
unions will have to decide whether
they will elect their wisest and most
conservative men to fill their offices
or whether they will elect the loud
mouthed and vicious element which
has crept into their associations.
If the former, they will grow In
strength, usefulness and standing
right along; if the latter, then the
time will come, and come soon, when
no man known to belong to a union
can obtain employment, for the pub
lic will not long live with the feeling
that there is a lawless force in the
country which they must cater to and
obey, or be treated as the ordinary
hold-up or assaßsin treats his victim.
The men tried for the murder of
the Governor of Idaho were acquitted
and that ends the case with them,
but the whole west knows that he
was killed because, as the executive
of the state, he performed what he
believed to be his duty.
The whole west knows that killing
of men in the two or three years of
violence that ruled in Colorado, was
all due to a determination of the Fed
eration there to rule or ruin.
All that will have to stop or the
unions will have to go. It is up to
them to decide.

done in mailing Christmas presents.
Each year the post office department
has been growing more strict until
this year it is not even permissible
to write on several presents, wrapped
in one big package: "This is for
John" or "This is for Mary" or any
thing else. No writing of any kind
is permitted to be included in any
thing but first class postage. If there
is writing then it goes nrst-«las«. On
top of this the department hai ruled
that all typewritten matter it the
same as hand writing or first-class.

package so that if it goes wrong for
any reason the sender can recover
CUTTING IT SHORT.
The Southern Pacific railroad has
decided to save time and ink by omit
ting from all letters the formal intro
ductions and endings. There will be
no more "my dear sirs" and "your
obediant servants." At first it will
look a little cold, but as the habit
spreads it will become less objection
able. In the past 20,0 years great
changes have come over letter writ
ing. The flowery beginnings and end
ings of Gov. Winthrop's day are heard
of no more. The demand is for brev
ity. Wasted words is wasted money.
That Governor Hay will refuse to
call an extra session of the legislature
is almost certain. He has not said so
in so many words at this writing but
those close to him have said his mind
is fairly well made up. The belief
that a majority of the citizens of the
state do not wish the legislature to
convene in special session appears to
have been confirmed by the confer
ence at Tacoma last week between
the governor, members of the legis
lature and a few leaders. Insurgent
leaders told the governor they believ
ed he should get the lawmakers to
gether to make it possible to enact a
statute providing for a preference
presidential primary. To all appear
ances little headway was made with
the governor and as a result he has
been threatened with dire results
next year. One thing Is almost cer
tain, that M. E. Hay will not have the
insurgent backing for renomination.
Of the 23 members of the legisla
ture who attended the conference In
Tacoma, 19 opposed c«lltag a special
A special session of the legislature
each year would be fine for the poli
ticians but a little hard on the tax
payers. It is .easy enough to see who
is urging an extra session.
'Tis said history should never be
written with a whitewash brush.
For Wife Desertion.
Deputy Sheriff William Cole was
in Spokane Wednesday and arrested
Phil Hayfield of Farmington, wanted
on the charge of wife desertion.
Prosecuting Attorney Paul Pattison
was in opokane at the time and con
sented to an arrangement whereby
Hayfield made a property settlement
giving his wife about $1500 and the
case was dismissed.

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
the only positive cure now known to
the medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease, requires a con
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of
the system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up the
constitution and assisting nature in do
ing its work. The proprietors have so
much faith in its curative powers that
they offer One Hundred Dollars for any
case that it fails to cure. Send for list
