TJI:EfDAY, AIUGU'ST 27, 1912.
1Repeatedly since the progressive na
tional convention, we have called at
tention to the. fact that the importance
of that gathering is test demonstrat
ed by the testimony of Its enemies.
We have cited the opinions of the
newspaper correspondents who rep
resented hostile publications at the
Chicago convention, lest we be held
as preJudic'ed and too enthusiastic by
reason of our friendliness to the move
ment. In the Tory. newspapers of
New York there wez; descrlptions of
the convention which left no room for
doubt as to its great significaance or
at to the strength of the movement
which it represented. Another Im
portant hit of testimony is the story
of the c(onvention which was written
by Richard tlarding Davis, trained
newspaper man, war correspondent
and author, one of the best known of
American writers. First, as is needed
for an understanding of the subject,
let this world traveler tell something
of the spirit of the convention. It is
reflected in this paragraph from Mr.
Davis' convention story in Collier's:
The most surprising part of the
demonstration was the. singing). For
the reason that everybody sang from
his or her heart. I have heard Ca
ruso murder a most beautiful and ten
der melody, because to tile Italian, the
simple English ballad held no mean
ing; he felt only the $1,000 check In
his hand. And the most impressive
music I ever listened to was the worst
rendered. It was "Nearer My God, to
Thee," played after a hattle,, over the
open grave of metn who had just been
killed, by a bugler who could not
fashion the notes because his sobs
choked him. The singing of 15,000
voices at the convention of "The Bat
tie Ilymn of the tRepubllc" and "On
ward, ('hristian Holdiers," ,might have
been better sung by a church choir.
But it curried a harmony that could
.not have been imparted by any music
muster. It reminded me of tile psalm
singing of the Boers before the battle
of Sand river.
Then Mr. Davis explains why the
Tory newspaperse tprinted genuine
news reports of the, convention. He
was among the correspolldelts, and
he knows:
'lnlme-hardened correspondents of
tuwspapurs bitterly opposed to pro
gressi'uleir, who lad hbeen sent to the
convention to Hcoff, remained to pray.
As many us , dozenl of them asked:
"What can one say about this? If we
tell the truth, people, will say we are
press agents. This thing has a re
ligious undertow. It isn't a convention
at all, it's a gospel meetitl."
One writer for a N'w York paper,
who had received instructions to
"guy" the conlvention, telegraphed his
chief: "There is nothing to guy. And
if I have to guy It, I resign."
'Another correspondent of another
anUit.oosevelt paper was found, after
"the colonel" had delivered his confes
sion, in a state of inconsequent intox
ication. His friends reproached hint
that at such a time he should not de
sert his work.
"I haven't got any work," he ex
claimed. "I had to tell tne truth
about it and the story I wired them
tonight is going to lose me my job."
And there Is the story of why the
Tory newspapers didn't carry out
their plans to jibe and scoff and mis
represent atid belittle the progreAtive
convention. There was no change of
heart in the editoral rooms at home,
' eht ! wps n , l men at Chloa
Ioet who came under the wonderutt.
spell of that meeting. These time.
hardened oynlcs, professional satirists,
gave way under the spell of that
That, after all, is the most im
poitant phase of Mr. Davis' testimony.
It has much more slgniflouace than
why a set of editors given to htabltual
mlsrepresentation had an apparent and
temporary lapse to truth.
Don't forget that the chamber of
commerce wants fine specimens of
grain and all other farm products for
the western-Montana display at the
state fair and at the eastern land
shows. When you have anything good
on your own place or when you see
something good on some other man'i
place, get it or tell the chamber of
Commerce about it. A large part of
the Missoula county grain collection
was destroyed In the Ronan fire. It
had been stored there while the ex
hibit of the reservation region was
being assembled. This makes it nec
essary to got out and hustle. Each
man and woman in Missoula county
has part in this affair. This part
should be actively assumed.
The latest judge to retire under se
rious charges Is Judge William R.
Bennett of the circuit court of West
Virginia, Unlike Judge Hanford, in
Seattle, this Judge does not give up
all hope of further service on the
bench, for Judge Bennett is a candi
date for re-election and he professes
to believe that the people will stand
by him, even In the face of possible
impeachment. But prdbably he is
down and out, for practical purposes,
as a public official.
It appears that judges accused of
gross unfitness, in character or rec
ord, for the places they hold, can be
dislodged more often than the public
has I)een led to suppose. They are
likely to resign rather than face im
peachment proceedings. They do not
care to take the chances of a trial be.
fore a tribunal of competent author
What has been needed, in many
states and cities, for a generation, has
been greater readiness, on the part of
lawyers and laymen alike, to bring
specifice charges against judges un
worthy of confilence and honor. There
has been extreme timidity or lack of
public spirit, or both, in allowing
judges grossly unfit for the positions
they hold, to remain undisturbed in
office. Courage and willingness to
take trouble for the public good would
have ousted many a judge from a seat
on the bench which he was unworthy
to hold and incompetent to fill.

Surely it can be said of Theodore Roosevelt that "we love
him, for the enemies he has made." Boss Pntrose, dis
oredited by his own state, despised by the country
and besmirched with all the filth of rotten ma be politics,
tonses Colonel Roosevelt of accepting a funds
from the Standard Offcompany. He calls u Archbold
of the Standard Ofl company to substantiate statoment.
Archbold says he could prove it if Cornelius - its were
alive. Then Archbold sneaks off to Europe, his parting
words being: "Tell the boys to-take good care of the
What a farce it all Is! A discredited boss, tf represen
tative of an illegal trust, and a dead man-r-a on fhese rests
the case against Theodore Roosevelt, The lase reacts
upon the man who started it. Penrose finds he has stirred
up a hornets' nest., He discovers that he has not muddled
the water sufficiently to conceal his own infam y or his vile
purpose. The whole tissue of falsehood is built upon the
name of a dead man. Were Cornelius Bliss' alive, he
would not be called as a witness. In that case there would
be some other dead man named as the lacking witness. And
now, after having accused Mr. Roosevelt, he As denied by
these people the opportunity to tell the truth of this affair.
The Penrose gang does not want the whole truth told. The
light should be turned on fully. Here is the Chicago
Tribune's summing up of the case:
Boles Penrose, standing at the switchboard, has tf.ned on more light
than he Intended. .
The light should be kept on. The switch should be thrown wide open.
The senate is adjourning. Its committee should rentan at its Im
portant work. There is no more pressing service Ini the country today
than this may be made. The committee should be Instructed to un
cover the whole machinery of Standard Oil politics. It should be fully
empowered. It should have counsel skilled in examinatiol. It should
have all necessary anssistance and a sufficient appropriation to make
its work effective.
Having been led to the threshold of the truth, the American people
will demand that the senate shall go on and at once to a thorough
No matter how tainted the source, how colored and trimmed and
garbled the report, let us have all we can get without check. Already
we have the testimony of great interest before congressional committees.
We have had the Penrose-Archbold correspondence, and now we have
Senator Penrose's personal authoritative statement of the contribution
of Standard Oil to the republican national campaign fund In 1904 and
to Senator Penrose's Pennsylvania fund.
There is Witness John D. Archbold. More even than Senator Pen
rose. Mr. Archold can tell us. Already he has testified. But that
was but a glimpse he has given us. He has testified that In 1904
Standard O11 contributed $100,000 to the republican national fund., and
$2r,n00 Mr. Archbold paid to Senator penrose. Hearst's Magazine has
published a letter which seems to have accompanied this latter pay
ment. Its phraseology is too sinister In its Implication for either Mr.
Archbold or Senator Penrose to be content with the very halting com
ment they have made upon it. Mr. Archbold does not think it is gen
uine. Senator Penrose hints that It is a forgery. The fact should be
And this Is not the only letter Mr. Archbold, or purporting to be Mr.
Archbold's, which Is crying to heaven for explanation. XWllte are let
ters to men potent In the affairs of politics, letters involving other
men, the roraker letters, the Sibley letters, the Grosvenol' letters, the
Quay letters, letters treating of the qualities of that pillar of dem
ocracy, Ilalley of Texas, and the men high In the business world and
men active and influential if not high in the world of practCical politles.
They give a picture of the ramifications of Standard 011 throughout
our natonal affairs during a conslderable period, and they have chal
lenged the alarmed attention of an aroused people. They also bring
into unenviable publicity many men, some now passed away, some
living and Influential still.
It is pre(osterous that having testified to but on Incident of the
great process of which he was a part, Mr. Archbold should not step
ldown from the witness stand. It is said he has a trip to Europe
planned. But what Is such a consideration when a nation of 90,000,000
is awaiting his words? Other citizens have foregone more Important
matters than a vacation to serve the state. WHI Mr. Archbold turn
tail now? W'll the senate permit him to leave? We are in the midst
of a great campaign. Senator Penrose and other public man have
Ibrought forward most opportunely this iurning issue of the relations
of organized money to government and party. The subject is barely
broached and Mr. Archbold is the richest source of information now
existing. How can the senate, If It would be fair to all concerned, or
waiving all personal claims, if it desires to serve the. welfare of the
republic, how can the senate permit an interruption until the cam
paign is almost over? *
When Mr. Archhold re'turns and once more the senate has access
to his capacious mmnl.nory, to his files which he will open, to the sources
of further enlightenment to which his information will lead, it will be
to, late to make full disclosure and too late to debate or to weigh the
full significance of evidence.
Surely this wrong will not be done. The investigation should pro
e.ed, and It cannot prolperly proceed without Mr. Archbold.
SFriends in Conference
By Frederio J. Haskin
.rom August 28 until September 4
the beautiful grounds of the Chau
tauqua association at CThautaqua lake,
New York, will be occupied by thou
sands of members of the Soclety of
Friends, called thither for attendance
upon their annual conference. Their
quaint Quaker costumes and their
softly spoken "Thee" will harmonize
well with the surroundings of their
famous resort and 'be an added attrac
tion to the resident cottagers present
and will also give them a better uI
derstanding of the breadth and scope
of the ,wors undertaken by this quiet
denomination of people to whom the
nation is indebted for muoh of its
progress in. philanthropy and educa
The conference program will include
many subjoets of general interest as
well as those p,'rtainlng to the growth
of the Society of 'riehds. One of the
leading addresses will he made by John
William 'raham, principal of Da'ton
hall, Manchester university, England,
who will present some of the latest
findings regarding moral and rollgious
education. A number of prominent
educators from leading American in
stitutions will discuss the suhject un
der different matters and the latest
progress in prison reform and Juvenile
court .methods will be presented by
experts. Industilal conditions, the edu
cational value of recreation and the
promotion of peace will receive con
sideration and several other branches
of civic work will he presented. The
Friends as a body have long been firm
believers in woman suffrage and a
conspicuous feature of the, New York
suttrage parade held last May was
the Quaker garbed marchers led by
two men who carried gray and white
banners, Eqiual suffrage therefore will
be brought prominently forward at
this conference and the subject will
be presented by Miss Leonora O'Reli
lay of New York.
Aside from these topics of general
interest there will be consideration
given to matters pertaining to their
faith, The discussion of the modern
mission of Quakerism, the Young
Friend's movement and the feaalibility
of certain Innovations in their form
of service will give the Friends from
all parts of thI goluttry iteIss 9 carry
home to their different meeting
It is doubtful if there is any re
ligious denomination in the world of
the same numbers that is able to ex
ert quite so strong an influence for
good along so many practical lines
as do the Friends or Quakers. There
are proliab'y less than 200,000 pro
feased followers of this faith through
out of the world and yet there is not a
movement for progress along any
philanthropic, educational or moral
line in which they have not a con
spicuous if not a leading place. It
,was the Quaker Influence which first
started, the movement for the abolition
of slavery. They are va'lant advo
cates of the temperance and have
good grounds for claiming to be the
first active peace organization In the
There are several branches of
Friends or Quakers ecattered through
out the United States although only
two are recogniezod as important and
the general conference includes them
all. The Quakers are nothing it not
progressive and the modern feeling of
religious tolerance has affected both
the Hicksite and Orthodox Friends
so that there is no longer the bitter
nees of feeling between them that
there used to exist despite the out
ward peace. 'iNow," said an eminent
Orthodox Friend recently, "I say to
my Hicksite Friend, 'Thee may not
believe in the atonement, but it the'

The original Society of Friends was
founded between 1648 and 1601 by
George Fox and their oonfession of
faith does not differ materially from
the Apostles' Creek. The Declaration
of IChristian Doctrine put forth by the
society in 1698 had for its diatingtlbh
inl doctrine the "Ldght of Christ in
Man." In 18827, Friend neaned lias
Hicks promulgated opinions denying
the accepted Interpretation of the dl

several other matters included in the

established they still maintain sep

Friends are all considered Orthodox
although there are different degrees
of faith in their different meetings.
In numbers the Friends do not seem
to be Increasing although in wealth
and the number of their institutions
there is a steady gain. One reason is
that they never make any attempt at
proselyting and do not hesitate to give
their aid to any other Christian
church. They are like the Unitarians
in this sort of libetality. They give
liberally to foreign missions and have
established many of their own, es
pecially among the American Indians
with whom they have held kindly re
lations since the time of William
Penn, but they also give liberally to
help the missions established in for
elgn nations by other denominations.
There are 20,000 members of the so
clety of Friends in E0ngland and last
year they contributed £20,000 sterling
to the support of roelgn missions, a
larger sum than is on record for any
other denomination of the same num
bers. They are especially interested
in China and there are a number of
Chinese Quakers enrolled in their

sprung up the Young Friends' move

The Young Friends' association have
erected modern buildings in which are
carried on mmny branches of work
which are of/vaJlue in moral progrers
although not sufficiently religious to
be carried on in the regular meeting
houses. There are educational classes

which bring the young friends in line
with work of other religious denom

charge of the devotional exercise of

conference and thus prove that their
spirituality has not suffered by their
having conformed to some of the

The philanthropies of the Friends
are almost limitless as may be realised
by anyone overlooking the charitable
work in Phl'adelphia, the real ,held

of them have meeting houses with
