COMMITTEE TOLD TAFT President William Howard Taft learned yesterday from a committee, who hailed from the National Repub lican Convention, that that convention had renominated him for the presidency some six weeks ago, and they would have acquainted him of the bit of news sooner, but they had been dodging a fierce Bull Moose that seemed determined to do them political harm. It had been with difficulty that they had dodged the dogged devil, and per haps would not have done so at all had they not put extra force to their "steam roller" and hit him a body blow be low the belt while making one of his vicious onslaughts, which put him down for the count while they got by. Though he went down with a dull sickening thud, yet he seems to not have been killed outright, as a report had reached their ears that he was slowly reviving and that they had better hurry, if they wished to reach safety be fore a second attack was made. This committee, therefore reports to you that amid the wildest enthusiasm you were again selected as the Republican standard bearer. All of this was a great .surprise to President Taft, but he was delighted at his good fortune. Under the circumstances there was no other way out of the dilemma except for Mr. Taft to accept the tender of the committee, which he did. He spoke at length on the situation and taking the committee into his confidence he laid before them his plans for protecting not only the committee, but the whole party against any further attacks on the pari of the savage beast. The methods of attack on the part of the Bull Moose and his side partner the Jack Ass, are nothing short of '•socialism," which is inimical to our form of government. Like their Populist predecessors, they picture paradise regained by the voters, if the one or the other is elected, but fail in toto to tell how and when that happy event can and will be brought about. Sensational journalism and magazine muckraking were the demagogical foods on which that brace of timber chasers had fed a few equally hungry office seekers, but the voters are not so easily taken in as they would imagine. The nation is not yet ready to be turned over to either a mad Bull Moose, that is running amuck and unless corraled will do great damage to her commercial interests nor to a prehistoric Jack Ass that is still in a semi-conscious state, and ever and anon incoherently brays forth dreams and visions neither practical nor pro bable. This government would soon be in a most deplorable state if courts' decisions could be recalled at the will of sensational journals and selfish interests and would soon be domineered and controlled by King Chaos. Think about conducting the affairs of this country on "a tariff for revenue only" and then think about a man pulling himself up on the dome of the capitol building by his IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF THE State of Washington in and for the County of King.

Secon.—Because, without the plain tiff's fault the defendant since April, 1909 has neglected and refused to make suitable provisions for the plaintiff and his family and still neglects and re fuses to make suitable provisions for THE SEATTLE REPUBLICAN boot straps. The former is as much impos sible as is the latter. It is a beautiful theory for at least the fellow without a home to argue that the fel low with a home shall share it with the fel low or fellows without homes, but there will be friction when you try to put the theory iv practice, the socialistic Bull Moose and Jack Ass to the contrary notwithstanding. "All men are born equal," so says the con stitution of the United States, and if this stranfie affinity—Moose-Ass—believes in the constitution of the country, then why are many of the citizens of the country denied the rights of citizenship and are taxed with- the plaintiff and his family.

It is perfectly natural for a commercial nation to have its affairs directed by persons .schooled in commercialism, and if it were not then it would only be a matter of a very short time before there would be no nation for any one to direct. A legend has come down to us that to suc cessfully combat the "devil," fight him with fire. Evidently the Republicans got the idea of applying steam rollers to recreants from the Jack Ass and the Bull Moose and at Chi cago they forced the latter to take a dose of his own medicine and the former will get his in November. will be rendered against you according to the demand of the complaint, which has been tiled with the clerk of said court The object of the above entitled action is to obtain judgment from said court in favor of the plaintiff, against the said defendants, F.
