Remarks Give Reason to Relieve the
Ambition One Had Succkn
' That tha attempt of Colonel Theo
dore Roosevelt to hare a third term
as president and even possibly more,
is not a mere result of the alleged
pressure which was brought to bear
on him but is in fact In line with
the ambitions mapped out by him
while he was still in the White bouse,
is being brought more forcefully be
fore the ppople each day. If he were
not determined to land the office, why
Indulge in a campaign which even the
etaunrhest of republicia papers ad

in the campaign to win, not merely to
natlsfy the desire of his friends that
he be a candidate.
PART OF AIIRAXCJr.n ri.A.
Those who are not his friends are
circulating the story that "be hath
ambitions" and from a Bpeech made
right here in Rock Ibland at Ex
position park in 1908 by hit)
non-l ii law, Congressman Nicholas
Longworth, of Cincinnati, it would
seem that maybe at that there was
a pre-arranged plan cf succession to
the presidency of the United States
and that the Terrible Teddy was to
get the Hon s share of the gravy.
Immediately following lbs publica
tion of Lon worth's speech, a country-wide
discussion of its meaning
took place and the president (Roose
velt) immediately took his son-in-law
off the stump and figuratively spank
ed him for bis Indiscretion. Follow

The remarks of Congressman
Longworth were of so remark

heard them is certain to recall
his statements. Congressman
Mc Kinney of the district, acting

Note the Pleasing Results!
The FLAX part of Uncle Sam Food turns to oil in the bowels.
The food glides!
Oiling the human machine prevents constipation and dyspepsia.
Users of Uncle Sam Food are as free from indigestion and consti
pation as are the Italians, who use quantities of oil in their food.
Co'nstipation and dyspepsia cannot exist where the intestines and
alimentary canal are properly lubricated.
A VOTE FOR
JUSTICE GEORGE A. COOKE
Democratic Candidate for Reelection to the
Illinois Supreme Court
Vote for the Continuation of a
Partisan Judiciary in the Illi
nois Supreme Court
Ohio. And for the eight years
following that I had thought it
should be Theodore Roosevelt of
New York. And for the eight
years after that my good friend,
James S. Sherman, also of New
York. And after that but I am
too modest to continue."
As far as Rock Island Is con
cerned, nothing hut thin has
been paid regarding Congress
man Longworth s statements.
Coming from the son-in-law of
President Roofcevelt, the sugges
tion of Roosevelt as a candidate
in eight years was of course
significant, and it attracted at
tention. KKITKH ATKIJ KTATKMKT,
The account then concludes with
press dispatches from points east of
here which showed that Longworth
was closely following the reports
made of his speech at Evatisville,
Ind., In an interview, he reiterated
his statements aud t-nl.irerf ujuii
them. Then came fl.e application of
the gag from the White house and a
day or two later the congressman was
busy denying that l.e had male any
such statemtnts as had been accred
ited to him- Affidavits were on file
at the time however, showing that he
did niuke the statement credited to
him in Rock Island. The only bitch
in the proceeding is that the ambi
tious Roosevelt apparently could not
wait for his Bucceesor to enjoy the
full eight years allotted to bim and
that therefore, hades broke loose in
the republican party.
Absolutely No Taste of Oil
Because the flax in Uncle Sam Food does not
change into oil until it enters the 6tomach and
Cooked with other grains, gives it the delicious
brown-toast flavor. Wonderfully appetizing.
98.6 degrees the natural temperature of the
body liberates the oil in the flax, the intestines are
perfectly yet gently lubricated, constipation and
dyspepsia vanish I Because your food glides!
Children Prefer Uncle Sam
Food to Any Other
Older people, too, find the flavor entrancing,
the good effects pleasing and permanent.
Uncle Sam Food is readily digested and actu
ally glides through 'the bowels, lubricating them
so all other foods glide through the oiled in
testines. Doctors, everywhere, are insisting on its use.

are accurately blended and scientifically
cooked. The food is ready. Only the
addition of milk or cream is required.
Many families find the food sufficiently

When, by act of Providence, in
May, 1909, the voters of the fourth
supreme judicial district were de
prived of the services of Supreme
Judge Guy C. Scott of Aledo, the
bar of Mercer county presented for
his successor, to fill the term ex
piring next June, George A. Cooke.
Judge Cooke deserves considera
tion upon his record now, as a can
didate for reelection.
Thus far, the Illinois supreme
court has been very free from sus
picion of political or partisan bias,
or representation, although a ma
jority of the justices are members
of the republican party. Five of
the present bench were elected as
republicans, two as democrats,
, but in their judicial capacity thty
have never been accused of divid
ing upon party lines. It Is well to
keep In mind the preservation of
this state of stability, and the re
turn of Judge Cooke by the voters
of the fourth district will be a step
in the right direction.
Judge Cooke Is a young man, 42
years old, but he has mad good
upon the supreme bench. He en
joys not only the esteem of his
constituants, but the respect and
confidence of his judicial associ
ates. Hie return, it is understood,
will be as acceptable to bench and
bar as.it appears to be to the peo
ple. There is an Important sugges
tion to aspiring youth In the career
of this successful young jurist. He
won his way to the highest pinna
cle of the law in the state by his
own efforts against handicaps
greater than confront the average
youth. Left an orphan at his home
In New Athens, Ohio, young Cooke
was sent at an early age to Illi
nois, to be brought up by relatives.
He worked his way through the
public schools of Aledo and through
Knox college at Galesburg. He
made his career as a lawyer suc
cessful and has acquitted himself
with credit upon the supreme
A judge who has demonstrated
his desirability upon the bench de
serves to be relieved of the harass
ment of party politics in contenti
ous strife for reelection, whether
he be democrat or republican. Let
us have a judiciary as free as pos
sible from worry about political
contests by recognition of judicial
services without regard to party
affiliations. Otherwise we cannot
hope to have the services of the
highest, types of judicial characters.

Lieutenant General Sir Robert S. a
Ba1en-Powell, recognized scout leader
of the world who encountered socialis
tic opposition in Portland, Oregon, a
month or so ago, is much gratified with
the success he had in that meeting. He
answered the questions of the social
ists thoroughly and went over many
of them. Discussing that incident he
points out that the aim of the Boy
Scout movement is near that of the
socialistic party. He points out that
the Boy Scout movement seeks .not
as does socialism to cure preseut evils
but to prerent their reappearance in
the present generation.
"Our attitude in the Bey Scout move
ment," he writes, "is that we do not
wish to be in conflict with any polit
ical, educational or religious body, but
we are very glad to have their advice
"Our aim is to be at peace with all,
and to do our best la our own parti
cular line, which, as it happens, is in
its intentions as near that of the so
cialist as any.
"Probably the majority of us are in
sympathy with the socialist aim though
we may not altogether see with the
same eye the practicability of some
of its details or its methods.
"We in the Scouts desire, not so
! much to cure present social evils, as
to prevent their recurrence in the ris
