CANDIDATE FOR CLERK
Glen B. Derbyshire is the anti
courthouse ring candidate on the
democratic county ticket who is op
posing Cal Atkinson, the present in
cumbent and candidate for re-elec
tion in November.
Derbyshire has been a resident of
•Spokane for nine years and bears a
good reputation. He has had years
of experience in bookkeeping and
office work and is fully competent
to look after the affairs of the
county clerk's office.
Derbyshire is 'a new man in poll
tics, but is getting acquainted fast.
He has recently spent some time at
the courthouse looking up the rec
ord of his opponent, the grand jury
indictment of Atkinson and other
matters that will be . presented to
the voters before the campaign
Derbyshire's platform reads, "If
| Tawney, J. P. Morgan. Lurton, Hitchcock anil all the motley crowd of.
' plutocrats and Hessians of privilege, cannot enlist in the army of
It would have been as sensible if James Buchanan, with Jeff Davis
and his outfit, had tried to get into the councils of Abraham Lincoln, as
insurgency got along pretty well while Roosevelt was in Africa, thank
you. He cannot swallow up the insurgent movement, and insurgency will
not swallow him with his endorsement of the tariff bill and of the presi
dent, with his Roots aud Griscoms.
There can be no stop to insurgency in either the republican or demo
cratic parties, and no harm can come to the movement unless undesir
able and eleventh hour recruits are permitted to fog its councils and
pervert Its aim. Taft isn't welcome as a recruit, and Roosevelt's room
is now far preferable to bis company. Let's cut out the red fire and
leather lungs and go back to the patient, dogged fighting of real insurg
ents. Listen to that T. R. built New York platform. It says:
"We enthusiastically endorse Taft—each month since his Inaugura
tion has confirmed the nation In its high estimate of his greatness of
character," etc. Rot. It may have confirmed Roosevelts high estimate
of Taft, but it hasn't confirmed the nation. Look at the record of those
J 8 months.
Taft ran a fake republican convention in Wisconsin to beat LaFol
Taft tried the patronage club on Brlstow.
Taft excommunicated Cummins.
Taft fired Pinchot.
_. Tuft put Lurton on the supreme bench.
Taft stood for Morgan's Wlckersham railroad bill and tried to club
Cummins into voting for It.
Taft fought Polndexter at home.
Taft bargained with Cannon and Aldrlch; helped their friends and
hamstrung their foes, though their foes were good party men.
If that record "confirms" any "estimate" of Taft that was held in
1908 then Roosevelt knew he gold bricked the nation when he handed it.

After that New York platform there is no room In any group or party
for both Roosevelt and LaFollette, or Roosevelt and Cummins, or Brlstow

NOT A MINISTER
Mrs. J. Smith, aunt of little Delia
Dougherty, wliobo sad little life
story was told In The Press a few
evenings since, takes exception tp
the story as published. Mrs. Smith
declares that ber husband, the
child's uncle, is not a minister, nor

that he is not even a Mormon.
She adds that she and her bus

makes such demands upon tiielr re
sources that they are unable to care
for little Delia.
She also declares that Oella's
father Is working in Montana, and
Is amply able to oare for the child
himself, if be would only do so.
But the fact remains, that who
