A DEMOCRATIC LANDSLIDE IS PREDICTED
MORAL FOR THE MONEY-MAD
ONLY TWO IN RAGE
ALL WHO WOULD DEFEAT FREE
TRADE MUST VOTE FOR
TAFT RUNNING A BAD THIRD
Every Straw Vote Taken Shows That
Because of a Hideous Mistake a
Great Political Party Has Melted
The surprising thing about Mr. Tnft
In this campaign la not thut ho la
running third. After his falluro to
meet the expectations, of the American
peoplo as president nobody had a
thought that ho ever again would go
from tho ballot box to tho White
Ilouso. After tho manner In which
his renomlnatlon was seized for him
nobody dreamed that In the national
race ho could run better than third.
Nobody, therefore, Is surprised that
this very thing has happened.
Not that Mr. Tnft is third Is aston
ishing, but that ho Is so bad a third
as ho Is. That he Is so had a third as
to ho no better off than thoho who aro
fourth and fifth.
Every canvass made by anybody
proves this Ih so. It Is so In the
atraw votes taken In tho manufactur
ing towns. It Is so In tho farming
districts: so In tho metropolitan cen
ters of population', so In the west; so
In tho middle states; so In tho east. It
Is bo everywhere.
Nobody's wonder Is that Mr. Taft
is weak; this is something perfectly
understood by everybody. The won
der of all Is that ho could be so weak
as to show that a great political party,
because of a hideous mistake, has
melted away, almost In a day, ltko
enow under a hoi spring oun.
To discuss tho passing of Mr. Tnft
as a candidate Is Idle for ho Is gone.
His vanishment Is now history. Hut,
fllh Mr. Taft out, thorn Is to bo dis
cussed the race that Is Ir.'t. In that
raco thero aro Colonel Hoosevelt and

This Is to bo discussed ns a llvo

Bryan's Charge Not New,
Mr. Dry an censures Colonel Roose
velt for using Democratic Ideas In his
present campaign. Tho charge of lack
of originality In public men Is nn old
complaint. John Adams wrote of tho
Declaration of Independence: "There
Is not an Idea In It but what has been
hackneyed In congress for two years
before. The substance of It Is con
tained In the declaration of rights and
tho violation of those rights In the
journals of congress In 177t."

GOV. WILSON AND TRUSTS
Why Has He Done Nothing to Curb
Those That Flourish in Hlo
After persistent attacks upon Colo
nel Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson nt In
dianapolis charged him deliberately
with responsibility for tho existence
of tho trustB and monopolies In tills
For two years Mr. Wilson litis
been governor of tho stnto of New
Jersey, and boasts of his control of
n reform legislature. Ninety-five per
cent of tho predatory trusts nnd
monopolies of tho United States, In
cluding tho Standard Oil company,
sugar trust, tho American Tobacco
company and tho United States Steel
company, have their homo In tho state
of Now Jersey and enjoy from thnt
stnto tho charter which nlono per
mits them to carry on tholr business
In forty-eight states of the Union.
Their fnctories and businesses aro not
In Now Jersey.
Kvery day slnco Mr. Wilson has
boon governor ho nnd his legslnturo
have had tho power fender tho law to
drlvo every dishonest trust from Now
Jersey, to compel an amendment to
Its charter, or to qualify Us articles
of organization under this provision
of law. During thoso two years ho
has not uttered n word In public or
private. Ho has not raised a finger,
lie has not whispered ngnlnst this
luutal injustice by which Is sheltered
overy crooked and offensive trust in
tho United States. Senator J. Si.
Only Practical Plan.
When Mr. Roosevelt nssumcd the
presidential olllco ho believed It would
prove possible to regulato tho big com
binations by proceeding against them
In the courts. An energetic experience
convinced him that regulation by law
suit was useless. Congress refused to
give htm the legislation that ho came
to believe was essential and tho trusts
Ilulldlng on thin experience, tho Pro
presslvn party and Mr. Roosevelt now
propose to adopt the plan that has
proved really effectlvo In dealing with
tho railroads and to establish a com
mission to regulato interstate corpo
rations. Tho Democratic party Is committed
to tho old policy of regulation by law
suit. So Is tho Republican party.
In view of tho farcical results of
this plan, ns proved by years of ex
perience In "trust-busting" that lenvcu
the trusts moro powerful than ever,
tho proposal of the Progrebslvos holds
out the only hopo of really accomplish

However much tho matter may bo

A Cleveland school teacher writes

Boomed to have any Ideas on tho sub
