"The Hand of Esau."
When William H. Taft, Re

went to Oyster Bay and submit
bed to. President Roosevelt for
)pproval or dis approval his
3peech of acceptance, he gave
,mphasis to the prediction of
nany that should he be elected
le would be subordinate. to the
will of Thoodore Roosevelt.
Why should President Roosevelt
be allowed the privilege of read- I
ing beforehand, for the purpose
if changing or revising, the
3peech which Mr. Taft has pre
pared and which will be one of
the most finportant declarations
..W~ampagn, uinlessit-is the
carrying out of an inderstand
lig that the present occupant of
Lhe White- House Is going to
,ake a firm hand in the admin
lstration of his successor, in the
ovent his party Is successful?
There are thousands of Re
publicans who want no more of
Roosevelt, and when they reflect
:eriously upon the significance
>f this recent Oyster Bay inci
lent, they will bolt at the idea
>f voting for a continuance of I
the Roosevelt administration by I
casting their ballots for Taft.
As pointed out by the Colum
bla State, "Taft was chosen by I
Roosevelt as his successor, and
was nominated by the Roosevelt
machine at the direction of
Roosevelt." Which is true, and

Pesident Roosevelt played after
all in the framing of that "most

Taf t's high "regard for the pres
ident's judgment" will mean I
something to the average Amer,'

Is Taft free, or is he a sub

situation "The Hand of Esau."

egard to what I said as to my F

tor in my remarks at the court- v
kouse last Wednesday. s
It is being circulated that I
aid if elected solicitor I would'&
kot prosecute cases brought
gainst any one for a family

ow. It is absolutely false, and v
>elow I will give in full the par
graph of my original speech, r

on every stump before reaching

>rossing and compromising
ases, which is as follows:
"Some of my opponents have

Ircuit that It they are electei 0
olicitor they will not nol prosse b

:ases. Gentlemen, if you elect
ne your solicitor I will rol prosse
ases and I will compromise
ases. I have lived in the court- e
iouses of this circuit for years, t
mnd I have seen the necessity of
loing both in many cases. It
osts the taxpayers of a county
;omething to run a court, and it1
s a solicitor's duty, when he in- I

Llso discourage litigation. If 1 t
ii elected solicitor there are t
hree cases I will never try, pro
rided I can get the partied to
cether and have them to make t
riends by settling their griev- I
mnces outside of court and to go 1i
iome in peace. They are a fai- k
ly row, a church row and a
(hool row. I think it is a solic
tor's duty to settle those cases
)ut of court, if he can do it by 11
iaving the parties to get to- I
rether and make friends. Bring
t family row into court and air
t, and you are liable to have to
-ry soie man for killing his
)rother or some other member
)f the family. Bring a church

ihe future you may have to try
iome man for killing a deacon
>r for whipping a preacher.
Bring a school row into court

r -or for? 'whipping a trustee. C
3-entrlmen, these cases should
oe settled out of .conrt, if such
i thing be possible."
This 13 a correct report of my
remarks on the subiect at the'
ourthouse last Wednesday, and I.

:oirrectness of it to cither one or
