The forces behind Cleveland prior to
the convention of .1892 sent to that
convention a multimillionaire,' now
dead, but whose name has been sadly
tarnished by recent revelatious in New
York finance. The forces behind Cleve
land during the election were the
forces of plutocracy, -the Wall street
and, the railroad multimillionaires. The
effect of this support was that in the
first congressional election after Cleve
land's inauguration - the. Democratic
party was beaten as it had not been
beaten for long before nor was beaten
afterward -until the forces behind
Cleveland rendered the valuable serv
ice of getting behind Judge Parker.
Planning Campaign Funds..
People about the house and the sen
ate are calling attention to what seems
to be a carefully prearranged plan to
secure for . the next Republican na
tional committee a comfortable ' cam
paign fund, and the Republicans have
so long carried elections by the tower
of money that they would be grievous
ly embarrassed if they did, not have
some millions'at their disposal.
' In a message ' of some months ago
President Uoosevelt warmly commend
ed .the principle of a bill of which Per
ry Belmont is the most able promoter
for giving publicity to all campaign
contributions. That bill, is before con
gress, or, to be pore accurate, is in
committee, but w'hen the president sent
bis latest message asking that certain
things be done before the end of this
most dilatory session the national pub
licity bill was not one of the things he
mentioned. . V 4
But he did urge the creation of a
tariff commission,' which, should sit
during the summer and fall and take
evidence and gather statistics bearing
upon that famous revision of the tariff
which for some ten years has always
been going to be made Immediately
after the next election.
Put these two matters together. A
tariff commission," which If created by
this congress would necessarily have a.
swinging majority of high tariff states
men upon It traveling about the coun
try meeting the protected manufactur
ere all the way from the shipbuilders
of, Pennsylvania to the lumber mag
nates of Oregon," would naturally, be
able to- suggest tQ these gentlemen

party in the next election would be
disastrous to them, while its success
could only be secured by he isek of

ful he might be of bis nomination. In
deed, it is the belief among keen poli
ticians about the ccpitol that the
chances for the success of any Repub
lican this year are so exceedingly small
that, a gentleman with the spectacular
instincts of Mr. Roosevelt would be
quite likely first to , seek the credit of
nominating a successor even though
ne imgnt possibly ran, tnen make a
regal tour of Europe and return to
politics four years hence to become the
savior ef bis party and bis nation from
Democratic rule. -
It sounds much like Roosevelt No
man in public life is more thoroughly
self seeking than he, and none plays
shrewder politics. . The close of his ad
ministration finds the country facing a
business depression such as has not
been known since 1893. It followed
upon a panic which paralleled the one
which nearly fifteen . years ago was
charged to Democratic policies. Mr.
Roosevelt has had for seven years al
most unhampered control of the gov
ernment of this nation. He has had a
congress which, while of late covertly
hostile, was long only too eager to do
his bidding. Ills party and himself are
responsible for the business situation
in the United States today, "which led
more than 50,000 people in New' York
on a recent Saturday to Join in a dem
onstration for the unemployed. , Mr.
Roosevelt is a shrewd politician. He
kuows that the times are precarious
for his party and even more doubtful
for himself. To thrust forward the
good humored Taft. would mean that
in the doubtful result-of- success be
vould be hailed as the sponsor of the
successful candidate, while defeat 1
would merely eliminate Taft, but leave
the only living Republican ex-f resident
in a position to. seek the limelight in
other fields of activity and return to
plague his party once again. This Is
the feeling among, I should say, almost
a majority of the Republicans in the
house and senate: To any one.who has
studied the Roosevelt character and
career it sounds like a plausible expla
nation of his present attitude.
The pjack List and the Boycott.
Much of the pressure being brought
to bear upon congress for a radical
amendment of the Sherman, ant it rust
law is due to the -belated discovery of
the large corporate employers of labor
that some of the decisions recently
rendered In courts against unions
which have attempted Jto boycott goods
manufactured by certain firms may be
appealed to by unions to destroy. those
corporations which are maintaining a
black list, so called, of worklngmen.
l or a time members of labor unions
who had any ' property 1 whatsoever,
were anic stricken after the decision
of the Dahbury hatters. ,One of them
saidt to me a few days after that deci
sion: "JJbelong to a union, and I must
belong to a union to work at my trade
and secure fair wages. I own a little
house, but under this decision if my
union shall compel me and my fellows
to strike and advise a boycott of the
goods of the firm for which we have
been working I am made Individually
liable.:' The firm could ; select such
members of the union as It knew were
at all financially responsible .and strip
them of their property.'' " . '
It seemed like a hard case, and un
der the decisions as they' now stand It
Is a possible one now. But the very
employers who are fighting the boycott
and the concerted strike do maintain
black lists. The heads of the labor un
ions have within the past few days
secured legal advice to the effect that
any union whose members are dis
criminated against ' because of their
membership in that union can proceed
against the , corporation "which has
blacklisted them. Of course what a
court will do Is not determined until
the court has done it, but it is alto
gether probable that within a few days
the unions will strike back, particular
ly the unions of railroad employees,
through the courts and 'secure a spe
cific decision as to whether the black
list Is- more lawful than the- boycott.
As a matter of fact, the employing cor
porations 'themselves are afraid to
meet the Issue, feeling sure that they
would be defeated in It;' It Is for that
reason that they ate, trjrins. to nosh

A SAFE AID) RELIABLE BLOOD PUMFIEB
In the time of our forefathers the forests and fields were the only labor
atoris from which they could procure their medicines. They searched, out
and compounded the different roots, herbs and barks into remedies, many of
which have been handed down to succeeding generations,, and continuously
used with satisfactory results. . Among the very best of these old time prep
arations is S. S. S.--, a medicine made entirely from roots, herbs and barks,
in such combination as to make it the greatest of all blood purifiers. This
absolute vegetable purity of S. S. S. makes it the one medicine that may be
used without fear of harmful results in any way. Most blood medicines on
the market contain mercury, potash, or some other strong mineral. These
act with bad effect on the system, upsetting the stomach, interfering with
the digestion, affecting the bowels, and when used for a prolonged period of
time often cause salivation. No such effects ever result from the use of
S. S. S., and it may be taken by children as safely as by older people. " For
Rheumatism, Catarrh, Sores and Ulcers, Malaria, Scrofula, Skin Diseases, '
and all other troubles caused by impure tor poisoned blood S. S. S. is a per
fect remedy. It goes down into the circulation and removes all poisons,
impurities, humors or unhealthy matter, and makes the blood pure and rich.
It eliminates every particle of the taint of inherited blood trouble, purifies and
strengthens the weak, deteriorated blood, and establishes the foundation
for good health; - S. S. S. is Nature's Blood Purifier, and its many years of
successful servfee, with a steadily increasing demand for it, is the best evi- -dence
of its value'in. all blood troubles. Book pn the blood and any medical
