GREATEST DUTY NOW
DUE FOR PERFORMANCE,
Today tho American, people
perform the greatest duty flxednpon
them as citizens ot this country, that
of choosing a man to fill the highest,
olce ia the greatest country on earth
President of tho United btates.
In .performing this duty the personal
ijy'of tho candidato Is not ot supreme
importance, though personal popular
ity of the leader often- adds to the
strength' of a party and; In this elec
tion the hope of the new party Is
based largely on the personality of
Colonel Rooseyeltv "who" was defeated
in the national convention when it
was! known that he was the choice
of.all the republicans who were given
anj opportunity to express themseles
in states where primaries were held.
'But, ln RH presidential campaigns
In Ihe 'past and in this one the can
didates have depended for. votes on
the 'virtue of issues presented by their
respective parties and In tho results
tomorrow these Issues will lead tho
Tho main reason presented by the
democrats for support of Governor
.lson is the pledge given for an
honest revision of the tariff DOWN
WARD. The contention has been that
the protection system maintained by
tho republican party during "the 'last
fifty yeare has enabled the favored
ones to create the trusts, destroy
competition and mark the prices of
products at the highest figure ever
known in this country. No one has
been table to deny this contention
and the democrats confidently expect
the voters to endorse their position
and promise 'by the heaviest vote
ever polled for a presidential candi
date in this country.
The republicans In ibis campaign
have assumed a standpat position on
tho tariff, accepting the democratic
Issue and undertaking to alarm the
business Interests of the country by
predicting a panic as the result of an
attempt to fulfill the democratic
So far as tbe new party is con
cerned it has ignored the tariff in the
campaign and persistently clung to
the effort to Impress on the voters
that the greatest of all evils in the
government has been the power of
the political boss. Acknowledging thai
the political boss Is an evil to be rid
of we find many who graduated as
bosses and political corrupters shout
ing loud and long for Theodore Hoose-
velt. While tho Bull Moose sbouW J
long ana loua lor progressive pon-j
Icies, these policies received their
greatest license of conditions which
became so apparent during the time
the Bull Moose candidate was occupy
ing the -office of president of the
WILL BE REPEATED.
The democrats "swept the country"
In tho congressional election of 1890,
as they swept the country In the con
gressional and state elections of 1910.
The McKinley bill turned the people
tgalnst the repubicans In 1890. as the
rayncvUdrich bill and the 'broken
pledges of the platform turned the
eoDleasainit?Wm! ln(1910. The
Tictory of "1S90 was' t h' portent jof
Ihe greater vSctory of. 1892. We are
told that history Is averse to repeat
lag Itself, but, unmistakably, we are
w npon the eve of a remarkable re-
faltion f the events of our poirtlcal'
, history of twenty years ago, says the
New York Times.
Tho parallel is surprising. The Mc
Kinley act went Into effect in Octo
ber, 1890. It was described in its
I titles as a measure "to reduce rev.
enue." The reduction was accom
plished by the enactment of almost
prohibitory duties. The revolt of the
country was instantaneous. But fc
month remained before the election,
but that was time enough fo the
people to mako up their minds to re
pudiate the republican policy of high
and higher production. In the con
gress, the Fllty-flrst, that enacted the
McKinley tariff, tha republicans hac.
In the house lTS-iinembers, the demo
crats 155. In the next house, elected
in November, 1890, the republicans
had ,87 members, the'democrats 237.
It was an appalling overthrow. In the
congressional vote throughout the
country the democrat: bad a popular
plurality over the republicans of mora
Then, followed the presidential elec
tion two years later. The republicans
were paralyzed by the magnitude of
Mr. Cleveland's victory. He had 277
electoral vote3. Mr. Harrison but 145.
States were carried by the democrats
that had been considered unconquer
ably republican. The tartft was the
issuevthe election of Mr. Cleveland
was a victory for the tariff reformers,
a rebuke to the party that had en
acted the extortionate duties of the
The parallel to the congressional
election of 1890 was drawn two years
ago. Democratic governors' were
elected in states usually held to be
securely republican in Maine. Mas
sachusetts, Connecticut, New Jertey,
New York, Ohio, Oregon and Wiscon
sin. In the Sixty-first congress the re
publicans had 218 members in the
House, the democrats 172. In tho
present congress, the sltfy-second,
elected In November two years ago,
the republicans have 162 members, the
democrats 227. This was tbe answer
of the country to the Payne-Aldrich
act, to the Winona speech. The re
publicans had broken faith with tha
people. The punishment that befell
them was the counterpart of the dis
aster of 1890.
In 1912 the parallel Ib to be
completed in the election of Mr. Wil
son . The march of events In a very
striking way repeats that of twenty
I years ago. Now, as then, the tariff
Is the issue uppermost in the minds
of the people, on that issue tho vie-
tory Is to be won. If the republicans
na(i advanced to the test this year
as a united party, instead of one rent
by internal quarrels, if there had been
no progressive movement, no progres
sive candidate, the result would have
been the same. Governor Wilson
would have been elected, though he
is now practically certain to carry
many states which in that case the
republican:: would have bold.
THE BALKAN WAR.
European countries are just now
hunting for a way to restore peace
between Turkey and the Balkan states
wblch have shown a disposition and
probable ability to aveuge themselves
for the long oppression and, maltreat-
ment-at the hands, of the. Ottaman
empire. A Paris correspondent, wh,o
evidently has studied the ( actuation
.closely declares that whatever may be
tho European complications from the
war in (be Balkans (and Europe is
not yet nut of -the woods), financial
. jf a -V r zrw.v Sz tvJv swot- 1 1, "Jw-
Europe can only see benefit to tho
American markets and In a general
way to American commerco and in
dustry. The mad slump in all the
markets of Europe when the Balkan
crisis was reached affected, it is true,
Ame.can holdings on the market.
It was merely the result of tho gen
eral feeling of panic, but when oper
ators and Investors took time to re
flect, they saw the absurdity of un
loading stocks of a country which
can in no way be dragged Into a Euro
pean conflagration and which would
be In a position directly to benefit
from such complications by heavy in
vestment in America of nervous Euro
pean capital and by the dlfcctflclling
of supplies and commodities to tbe
affected countries. In other words,
Europe will decide that American In
vestments will be the safest for the
protection of thefr capital.
Continuing this Paris correspondent
says: "As I have pointed out before,
the only danger of the Balkan war
spreading to the great powers comes
from Russia .and Austria. The Slav
sympathy for the small Balkan states
is steadily increasing and is mani
fested in rather violent press outpour
ings. Russia and Austria have agreed
to Insure the status quo In the Bal
kans whatever the outcome of tho
war, but only on condition that their
own interests are not imperilled,
Therein lies the greit danger.
"Already the Russian and the Aus
trian press is talking about the spe
cial interests' of their respective
countries In the theater of war. Rus
sian newspapers are clamoring for
support for the Slav brothers of the
south and voicing doubt whether the
powers can maintain the territorial
Integrity of the Balkan region. In
case the Balkan states win, they say.
Russia would surely be expected to
stand by the victors should they wish
to annex the invested Macedonia.
"On the other hand, Austria could
never let her pathway to tho Adriatic
be blocked by allowing any nation to
occupy definitely tho strip known as
"if. Polncare, the French prime
minister, has followed up his efforts
to prevent the Balkan war by trying
to bring about as soon as possible a
cessation ot that conflict His great
aim Is either to mediate between the
belligerents or to convoke a special
conference of the powers to settle the
war. -It is looklnpr pretty far ahead.
but the great point is that the powers
want to be ready to step in at the
right moment Instead of being1 too

to avert Ihe war. ' ' ' '

the first practical move, of
the (powers is an effort to calm the
excited feeling In Russia and Austria,
to prevent that feeling plunging- those11
countries Into .war".

The treasury department has given
official recognition to the tipping
habit, by fixing a schedule of tips that
will be allowed in the expense ac
counts ot the employes of that de
partment. No treasury employe may

expense account for feeing waiters.
He is limited to 50 cents. Similarly
ho may not tip a railway porter more
than 25 cents, or If ho does he must
pay the excess out of his own pocket.

wCth the election forecast ot Hon.
Geo. A. Olney, chairman of the demo
cratic state committee, published to-
day, to say that wo consider th
figures given to be extremely conser -
vativo and we expect to see much
greater democratic strength demon-
strated as a result of the election to
be held in the state today.
The result of the woman suffrage
vote in Arizona todiy we regard as
one of the. most doubtful propositions.
Aside from a few speeches deliver by
Senator Davis, of Maricopa coun-
ty the question has attracted
little attention. Both sloes are claim

WILSON AND PROSPERITY
"In 'jerery presidential election
save two In tho past half century, the
political sentiment of the country has
bo crystalized by the middle of Octo
ber that the result has been clearly
foresnadowed." says the New York
American. "The two exceptions were
tho extraordinary elections of Hayes
In 1876, when Tllden received a small
popular majority, and the election of
Graver Cleveland, when the national
result turned on a majority of less
than 1,100 In New York state.
"But this year no such exception to
tbe general rule of national elections
Is apparent. The tide has set lor
many weeks steadily and strongly
toward Governor Wilson. His elec

nificant fact in the whole country in
these past few -Keeks, next to tho
trend of the great political contest?
"It has been the ery remarkable
and almost universal stimulation of
business. Every one is hopeful. Every
one predicts an early increase in good
times. Every railroad In the country
is overwhelmed with traffic and there
is an actual shortage of many 'thou
sands In the freight cars required to
move the visible freight now offered.

nothing that will help the town more
than clean streets, and If somo en

woods and destroying the caterpillar
pest, Safford will be In tbe lead for
the first prize for a clean town.
TAFT AS AID TO WILSON
Mr. Taft cannot be elected and he
knows It. He cannot run second and
he knows IL The best that Mr. Taft
can do is to finish third and be knows
it knows ho will be a very bad third.
Yet Mr. Taft bes the republican
remnant left in his thin ranks not to
desert him for Mr. Roosevelt, and at
the same moment warns voters that
It means the severest business depres
sion if they vote for Wilson.
Condemning Wilson's policy as fool
ing the people, he begs the people
to do a thing he knows will bo of
help to Governor IVUso"
Wilson who believes that only
states should grapple with tho great
trust problem with his own trust-breeding-
New Jersey under his gov
ernorship as an example! Wilson
whose dream Is a free trade policy
for this nation! Wilson who would
strip the protection of the American
tatlff system from our Industries!
Wilson who -would expose American
wage earners to the conditions cf pau

cess means paralysis of industry,
