Saturday. September 28, 1912. Taft Should Be Re-elected. President Taft should be re-elected because he bas given the country an honest and effective administra tion. The three years of his term have been characterized by business stability and unexplained prosperity. He has maintained the high standing of the United States among the na tion of the world. In his efforts to secure international peace he has ele vated this republic to the highest plane among world powers. Thus,un der his administration, there bas been material aud moral advancement at home and increased respect for the United States abroad. He has been a fearless and impar tial administrator of the laws. He bas prosecuted the illegal trusts more numerously, more actively and more x effectively than any of his predeces sors. He has shown great wisdom in dealing -with national problems and lie has shown courage and decision fn meeting international questions, such as the abrogation of the Russian treaty. Above all, he has kept faith with the people and has maintained constitutional government. He has been a good business presi dent. The tariff board, through - which the tariff would be taken out of politics, was his idea. He personal ly scrutinized all the details of gov ernmental expenditure and he organ ized the efficiency and economy com mission which has saved the people millions al dollars. His wir recommendations for the betterment of social welfare have re sulted in the enactment of many' be neficent laws. With courage, ability and wisdom, lie has conducted the affairs of the nation. That his work, done without ostentation or self-praise, has produc ed great results is demonstrated by the splendid condition in which the country finds itself today. The Republican Ticket Will be Headed Taft and Sherman After a careful examination ef the law Chairman Dolley of the Republi can State Committee advised the Roosevelt electors that the law made It mandatory upon the Secretary of State tocertify out the names of Taft and Sherman as the candidates for President and Vice-President on the Republican ticket and that it was use less to bring suit to test the question again. This same conclusion was reached by Secretary of State Chas. H. Sessions and Attorney General John S. Dawson. This identical question has already been decided by the Kansas Supreme Court in the case of the Populist candidate for Vice-President in 1896. When Mr. Thomas E. Watson, of Georgia learned that the Kansas electors nominated by his own party would vote for Arthur Sewell, of Maine, the democratic nominee for "Vice-President he requested the sec retary of state to keep his name off the ballot because it would work a fraud and misrepresentation on the voters. The secretary of state agreed fco'do it. But the supreme court issu ed a writ of mandamus compelling the secretary of state to certify out the name of Mr. Watson, even over the protest of Mr. Watson himself. The facts in the present case are these: There are now and for several weeks past have been on file in the secretary's office, ttrree certificates duly executed by the convention of ficers of the three political parties the Republican, Democrat and Socialist. The Republican cert ideate shows that Taft and Sherman are the Republican, nominees; the Demo cratic certificate shows that Wilson and Marshall ara the Democratic nominees; and the Socialist certificate shows that Debs and Seidel are its nominees. No certificate or other notice has been filed in that office on behalf of any other person claiming either the ... Republican, Democratic or Socialist nomination for President and Vice -President. 1 The Kansas supreme court in the Watson case said; "A certificate of nomination Is the guide to the secre tary of state, and he should follow it In giving direction to the county clerks as to the making of the official ballot. We think it plain that he has no right to omit the party appella tion, nor the names of the pres idential and vice-presidential candi dates added to the party appellation by the authority of law and properly appearing in the certificate." The secretary of .state is a mere ministerial officer and not a censor of political parties nor a guardian of public morals, and that even the court itself 'could not pass Judgment upon the, motive which actuate a political party for that is not jurisprudence, but politics." That is the law as it stands today. At the party council Secretary of State Sessions stated that he would welcome a suit against him to test the question anew. He could have certified out the names of Taft and Sherman for several weeks past, but delayed action for the sole purpose of giving anybody in Kansas an oppor tunity to bring such test case. That the 'learned lawyers, who first took issue with him, finally adopted his view of the law is evidenced by the fact that they have finally, one and all, advised against bringing the suit. The Attorney general offered to waive all questions as to the right of the Roosevelt electors or any private citizen to bring such a suit, and have the court pass squarely upon the merits of the case as to whether or not the supreme court would hold that the Watson decision is still the law in Kansas. But the Roosevelt attorneys thought it wasn't worth while. Many Driven From Home.

A man stepped up to a ticket seller at a moving picture show in a town not far from here and told the man at the box office that his wife was in there with another man, and he in tended to wait until they came out, relates the Downs News. After the reel which was being shown was fin ished the manager interrupted the show long enough to make the an nouncement: "There's a tough guy ontside waiting for his wife and the man that brought her here. I'd ad vise the pair to step out the rear door." There was a hasty bustle and a man who claimed to count said that fifteen couples shot out through the rear door.

Wollner, Wa-Keeney, Kans., says: "Doans Kidney Pills proved more effective in my case than any other kidney medicine I ever used, I was annoyed a great deal by too frequent passage of the kidney secre tions and my condition was generally worse in cold or damp weather.

I procured at Gibson's Drug Store, corrected my trouble and benefited me in every way." (State ment given April 13, 1907.) A LATER BTATBMBJ1T.

Paris. August 11. One of Pastor Russell's address es today was from Psalm viil, 4. "What Is Man?" He remarked that although be had been several times in Paris this was his first public ad dress there on in vitation, of the lo cal Class of Bible Students Associa tion. He had heard that Bible stu dents were scarce in France, but al ready he had found some very alert for clearer light upon the Word of God now due because we are in the dawning of the New Dispensation. Once he and other Bible students, confused with the errors of the Dark Ages, thought of man as a spirit being inhabiting a body of flesh, coming Into It at birth and departing from it at death. Bible study is rapidly driving away that error. The Bible clearly tells that the- genu homo is an animal being, of the earth earthy not a heav enly or spirit being. This is in har mony with what science has been tell ing os that which we could not re ceive until we found it to be the Mes sage of God. , The Bible does not place man upon an equality with the brute, but far above. His superiority is that of form and species. His larger brain and Its better shape than that of the brutes indicate his knowledge and In tellectual' superiority over them. He Is to them God's representative their king, created in the moral image and likeness of his Creator.; The fact that man dies has led some to the conclusion that be is a spirit be ing and at death merely finds release from his body of flesh and soars back again to a spirit condition in which he once was. . How inconsistent! How. ilr togical! The Bible tells, on ;tbcn-; trary. that God made man as He de sired to have bim adapted exactly to the conditions provided for him an earthly Eden. Paradise. The Bible tells that God proposed to him ever lasting life as a man on condition of continued obedience. Tt explains that dying is not going home. nor. going, tai eternal torment, but ceasing to be. "Joy In the Morning." . This penalty passed upon Father Adam be lost the right to live and fell under the sentence. "Dying, thou sbalt die:" "In the sweat of thy face Shalt thou eat bread until thou return unto the ground from which thou wast taken." (Genesis ill, 19.) The fallen, death-sentenced Adam conld not give to his children rights which he had lost. Hence we are all sinners by in heritance. We are all dying. By one man's disobedience sin entered into the world, and death as a result of sin. and thus death passed upon all men. be cause all are sinners. Romans v. 12. The Scriptures speak of the past and present as a night time of sorrow and pain and trouble, but tell of the New Dispensation, when the curse shall be removed, and style that a Glorious Day. in which the Sun of Righteous ness shall arise and drive sin's clouds away. God through the Prophet de clares, "Weeping may endure for the night, but Joy cometb In the morning.' The signs that we are in the morn ing, the gray light of the New Day, are already manifest to those who are awake. The wonderful blessings that have come to mankind during the last century, and particularly during the last fifty 3 ears, are foregleams of the great Day of Messiah, the Day of earth's reconciliation, the Day of the cancelling of the penalty of death, the Day in which God. through Messiah, will wipe away all tears -from off all faces. The result of that Day, a thou sand years long, will be that all the willing and obedient will .be uplifted and all tbe wilfully disobedient and wicked will be remanded to death "the Second Death." Revelation xx. 14- Why So Long Delay T - It Is easy to see why these blessings of Restitution and uplifting out of sin and death conditions did not begin be fore tbe first advent of the Redeemer. The uplifting work could not be accom plished until two things would first be done. One . was that a redemptive price needed to be given. Adam's life was forfeited. The life of a Redeem er must be given in his stead. This was what Jesus did. He left His h Ttnly glory, ham Med 'Himself to ha man .nature, and then the Man Christ Jesus -gave Himself a Ransom price for all. This Is plain. But. according to the will of God. In stead of beginning the blessing of the world. He did first another work, namely, the gathering of the Church to be His Bride. Their invitation is to suffer with Him and to reign with Him to present their bodien living, sacrifices, holy and acceptable to . God tbrongh Christ. (Romans ill. 1.) So consecrated, the flesh of all believers Is counted as the-flesh ot Jesns. and suffers, as such, trials.
