?4EW YORK. July 3 —Commenting
on Wilson's nomiuatlou, Hit* New
York Times today said:
“The Democratic party in the nom
ination of Wilson is reborn. It will
be re-organized, it will become ef
ficient. it will have once more the
Confidence of the people. 'I he nom
ination of Gov. Wilson will unite the
' party. It invites, we may almost say
Sltcommends. the return of prosperity.
It reduces Mr. Roosevelt's bolt to the
proportions of a Republican quarrel.
s The World: “He will be the first
president of the United States In a
generation to go into office owing
favors to nobody except the American
people and under obligations to noth-
Jng except the genera) welfare —(Jov.

The Trfbuns: “The victory of the
radical element at Baltimore will be
a killing frost to the hopes of the
projectors of the new third party.

The Herald? “Hats off to the gov
ernor. He may not know It but he Is
on his way.’ and that way is the way
lof a radical of the radicals.”
The Press: “If .Mr. Roosevelt makes
an aggressive campaign as a candi

! naturally would have a better chancy

The Sun: “The triangle Is now com

• • • Meanwhile whatever' course
Col. Roosevelt may prefer under the
I circumstances, the Baltimore conven
tion has named the most dangerous
Democratic competitor the Republican
ticket could confront and has put him
cn a platform broad enough to war

tion. By so doing It has thrust on the
Hon. William Howard Taft the un
divided honor of representing in the
campaign of 1912 the saner Ideas of
progress under the constitution and
institutions we have.**

a struggle for which few parallels can
be found even in the history ot
the Democratic party, the problem
was solved in the best possible way.
The strongest of the progressive can

Woodrow Wilson, lawyer, scholar,
historian, executive, has been nonv

and new leaders. The record of Gov
Wilson In the executive chair at Trtn

every Democrat. He has been firm
on issues of principle and wise in
matters of policy. His achievements
belong to us ail. He D a man of out
standing intellect and of spotltsa
character. While Woodrow Wilson Is
the beneficiary of the wrong done
Champ Clark, the Republic doubts not
that he is the innocent beneficiary.
Boston Globe.
Woodrow Wilson fits the era. N’n
better choice could have boon made.
He was the logical selection. Ills
opinions are well known, his qualifica
tions are explicit, his character is un
assailable and his achievements
as warrant his promotion to the of
fice of president of the United States.
With Gov. Wilson In the field, the
Roosevelt third party movement can

ing election.

To those of us who have been
