The reformers were waging a fearful struggle against the machine. A big, six-foot-three youngster was going at the boasee hammer and tongs. My, but he was a reformer to a fare-you well! He was elected. -His name was Boie* Penrose. Penrose a reformer? You bet he wa* —for a brief —very brief —period. Well, he meandered along through both houses of the Pennsylvania leg islature, absorbing the gospel accord ing to Quay, and when Standard Oil, the Pennsylvania railroad, and the coal and steel interests switched from Senator Don Cameron, Penrose was boosted up alongside of Quay, and c $ the latter’s death succeeded to the leadership in the state. He never amounted to much in the senate, claselng-witb the "me too” men behind Aldrich until the Rhode Island senator retired. Then Penrose took out his ambition to be the Re publican exar and brightened it up and tackled the Job. Also he set out to re-elect Taft and be the power behind the presidential throne. A whole collection of bumps, big ones and little ones, in which Pennsylvania discredited him entire ly. haa put the caar business out of the Penrose head. Now all he hopes for 1s a continued ability to dodge the bricks and to explain how he ftot caught with Archbold’s oil money in his Jeans. Boies is a confirmed bachelor; said he wouldn’t marry until the Republi can organisation picked out a wife for him. He doesn’t go in for oratorical stunts, preferring the more oily way of the greased dollar as an argument. He has never been accused of mis representing the friends who elected him; he has served them —the big interests —well. Penrose was born in Philadelphia, Nov. 1, 1860, the son of wealthy par ents. He was educated at Harvard, and a politician by trade. He’s wealthy; healthy—being the biggest and strongest man In congress; and (CablliuM ra Pit* Right) the Bjelroil ®imcs JH SPEAKER CHAMP CLARK.

Bpeaker of the House. Thia house passed more bills In the nature of constructive legislation than any house in twenty years. It passed tariff bills alone that would have sav ed the American people $500,000,000 a year. It passed more bills for the benefit of laborers and wage earners than any other congress that ever met. It passed a bill that ameliorates to a great extent conditions of our seamen which will have a tendency to 'nduce the securing of high grade men. It saved several millions dollars without crippling the public service to any degree. It admitted New Mexico and Arizona Into the union as two states, as ought to have been done twenty years ago. It is a great outrage that they were kept out of the union so long. We submitted a constitutional amendment for the direct election of United States senators. We liberal ised the rules of the house. We pass ed laws to try to stop undue use of money in elections. We enacted a multitude of other good laws, among them being the Panama canal bill. President Taft prevented by vetoes enactment of all of our tariff bills, and prevented us by vetoes from working many other reforms by new legisla tion on appropriation bills. We had b right to pass those bills. He had a right to veto them* The Issue Is made to go before the people. I am not afraid of the result. Our thanks and the gratitude of the country are due, to the wiso and patriotic Republicans who have co-operated with us In passing good bills. The Republicans failed to keep their promises and came to grief as they deserved to. We will go before the people on our record with absolute confidence. OEOROE NORRIS.

Debs, accepted the social istic nomination for president. Debs was not met by a committee, and there was no formality whatever about the event. Debs simply released his acceptance speech to the newspapers and at once began preparations for a trip to Fergus Falls, Minn., where he will speak tomorrow night. In his speech of acceptance Debs said: “The Republican, Democratic and Progressive parties all stand for the private ownership by the capitalists of the productive machinery used by the worhnrs. “The Socialist party Is the only party which declares that the tools of labor belong to labor and that the wealth produced by the working class belongs to the working class. "Intelligent workingmen are no longer deceived. They know that the struggle in which the world Is en gaged toda yis a class struggle end that in this struggle the workers can never win by giving their votes to capitalist parties. They have tried this for many years and It has always proddeed the same results to them. The Socialist party's mission Is to establish Industrial and social democ racy. To this end the workers are steadily organizing and fitting them selves. "Standing as It does for the eman cipation of the working class from wage-slavery, for the equal rights and opportunities of all men and all wo man, for the abolition of child labor and ths conservation of all chttdbood, for social self-rule and the equal free dom o fall, the Socialist party la the party of progress, the party of the fu ture, and ita triumph will signalize the birth of anew civilisation and the dawn of a happier day for all hu manity."

Hill, a successful man ufacturer in Detroit for 27 years, is giving a lively imitation of the insurg ency of the chief Bull Mooaer of Oy ster Bay, by opposing the slate fixed up by a bare quorum of the state com mittee. Julius B. Kirby, a Saginaw lawyer, who has had experience as an office seeker when his Republicanism was of the blown-in-the-bottle regularity, claims to have been anointed for the nomination as congreesman-at-iarge. Mr. Hill has mgde a vigorous public ity campaign through the newspapers, heartily endorsing the Roosevelt pro gram of industrial, social and agricul tural progreaalveneas. Hlg principal slogan has been that there should be more business men and fewer lawyers in congress; and that Detroit, by rear son of Its wonderful growth, Is entit led to the thirteenth congressman. Mr. Kirby has been giving attention to Detroit in the wind-up of hla speak Ing campaign. He has challenged the accuracy of Mr. Hill’s claim that all his opponents for the congressional nomination on the Progressive and Republican tickets are lawyers and has been quoted as charging Mr. Hill with reviving the story of hlg being ousted from office on account of Irreg ularities, in his election as prosecut ing attorney of Gratiot county.
