Will Attend Both Funerals.
The followers of the elephant and
the bull moose have already declar
ed that the war is still on to the
death. Well, the donkey is ready
to attend the funeral of either.
Could Not Find Voice Enough.
The Chronicle has the finest
feathered rooster in America but we
decline to let him crow over Tues

that can do justice besides we
don't like to "rub it in" on our new
converts to Democracy. Weston
And the Sun Still Shines.
"From a close reading of stand
pat literature," says Noah Count of
Chiggerbite, "I deduce that Presi
dent Taft was responsible for the
timely rains and good crops this
summer but that the drought of a
year ago is to be charged to the
Almighty." Kansas City Times.
And He Did Yell. Liar!
President Taft can have at least
the consolation of knowing he con
ducted a dignified campaign and
while defeated for the traditional
second term, he knows of a certain
fellow who lost out for a third term
and who made quite a spectable of
himself calling men liars. Rich
And It Still Shines.
Notwithstanding the direful fore
bodings of the opposition in case
the Democratic national ticket was
elected, the sun came up the next
morning and shone with its usual
warmth and strength. It is possi
ble, after all, the Democratic vic
tory will not cause a convulsion of
nature Albany Ledger.
Oregon and Missouri.
Oregon defeated a single tax
amendment last Tuesday and adopt
ed a woman's suffrage amendment.
This showed a surer use of the pow
er of direct legislation than Mis
souri showed. Now, however, that
the Missouri people have discover
ed that the initiative and referen
dum are their surest protection
against the things that they do not
want, they doubtless will be more
self-confieent and will use it as
well to get the things they do want.

There is one thing Missouriaus
can be truly thankful for. It is
that they will have no more of Had-

"We have met the enemy and
they are ours." (Gee Whiz! What
a relief it is to get that out of our
system! We've been saving that
quotation for nearly twenty years
thinking each succeeding election
wonld afford an opportunity for its
use, but, somehow, it has seemed to
fit better the columns of the oppo
sition papers.) Mokane Missou
rian. Where Wilson Was Right.
Governor Wilson declined a gift
of $12,500 proffered by Cyrus II.
McCormick. of the Harvester trust.
In taking this course Gov. Wil. on j
said that it" lie entered the Wiiiii"
Ih.Ube as president it would be
with clean hands. It will be noted
that Governor Wilson, unlike Col.
Roosevelt, did not wait until the
election was over before ordering
the money returned. Glasgow
Put Taft Out of Business.
Roosevelt can take satisfaction in
the fact that he helped to put his
old friend Taft out ot the presiden
cy, even though in putting him out
he ruined the party that has caus
ed the rain to fall and the sun to
shine for lo these many years; yea,
has even given the American citi
zen courage and energy to toiL
Now then, if the soil refuses to pro
duce under Democratic rule who
will be to blame but Roosevelt for
bringing about the defeat of the old
Republican party. Macon Times-
He Has Gone Gone Gone!
Goodbye to the "mysterious
stranger." He found lodgment in
Missouri by accident, and has over
stayed his time through careless
ness and indifference of those who
could have said to him "move on."
There is no mistaking the voice of
the people this time. Possibly
within the next half century the
governor's mansion at Jefferson
City may need an airing, and the
"mysterious stranger" again gets a
lookin, but he is advised to hunt
another job for the present, and
cease to look with covetous eye in
the direction of Jeff. City. King
The Harvest Trust Robbers.
In the Harvester Trust Investiga
tion in Chicago last week Wm. N.
Racy, comptroller of the Interna
tional figured which show that the
profits of the McCormick Harvest
ing Machine Company for the five
years preceding the consolidation
of the manufacturing concenrs was
Jt.uuu.uuu. This was 1,000 per
cent on the capitalization of the
plant. Who paid this enormous
profit? The farmers who bought
the product of this plant. Is it anv
wonder that our manufacturers of
farm machinery can ship their
products abroad and sell them to
foreigners for less money than they
sell them to our home farmer? The
day for changing this condition of
affairs is at hand and every farmer
in the United States owes it to him
self to lend his aid to crush out
this huge monopoly. The political
campaign is ended but the cam
paign for a better distribution of
the benefits of our industrial enter
prises has just begun. Worth
