We are very much surnrlicd nt
persons asking our position ns to
whom we favor for president. We
have never believed that Prcsl
dent Tnft had a chance for rc-clcc
tlon and havo always considered
him a draw back to the party.
Uut believing In fair play we have
not forced our views upon our
readers. Even now wo will de
vote as much space to Mr. Taft as
to Mr. Roosevelt If anyone cares
to write the matter.

It wns kept for two days, Sept
10th and 17th, being hauled to'Oma

Itallroad and there turned over to
the Missouri Pacific. The tour,
which opens at Omaha, will be con

Pacific Iron Mountain for three
and a half months, the last stopp

which point thecar will be on the

The Republican State Committee
this week sent out n big article to
the Republican papers of Missouri
headed "Roosevelt a Slngic-Tax-
cr." We regret very mi that
the committee sees fit to garble
Col, Roosevelt n sayings no its to
mislead the public. The article Is
based upon Mr. RooseVclts sug
gcstlons that nil lands usod for
building or agriculture In Ahska
be exempt from taxci as far as
possible and that land held for
speculation be taxed, a plan which
hit the Ouggcnhelms and msn of

A gentleman called our .ittcn

volt is losing ground by saying
that he Is not being supported by
the leading papers. Wo took the
trouble to inquire and arc told
that threo thousand papers havo
como out boldly for the Progrcs
lvo ticket. When It is considered
what it moans for a paper to
"flop" this showing Is remarkable,
When the fact in also taken Into
consideration that Missouri's groat

Is having a well-edited page udver

method of presenting Tuft's views
but how .much good it will do
where such articles as below, ap

Speaking of the farmer's welfare.
the editor says:
