PROGRESSIVES SAY TAFT CANNOT WIN FREELY PREDICT THAT CONVEN TION WILL STAMPEDE TO LA FOLLETTE. Chicago, Oct. 19. President Taft cannot be renominated. Practically all the west and a large proportion of the east are against him. This conclusion is based on a care ful examination of the reports brought to Chicago by the delegates to the progressive conference. It is also based on personal investigations in; many of the states. I find that the following states will, have solid La Follette delegations in the national convention: California, Oregon, ___________ Washington, Idaho, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, South! Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, New Hampshire and New Jersey. j The above list includes every re-! publican state west of the Mississippi except Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. The latter two are quite sure to send Taft delegations. Minnesota will send Is out of 22 progressive (La Follette) delegates, and Colorado may come through with a progressive delegation. There will be fights and divided delegations from the following states: Illinois, Indiana, Micnigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont. It is not certain what will happen in New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware. Nor is it certain what will happen in the southern states, whose dele gates are usually secured by the cor rupting use of federal jobs and money. It is safe to say, however, that the southern delegate will be looking for a republican candidate whb can win, because unless he helps to nominate a winner he loses his job. Taft does not look to him, or anybody else, like a winner. The situation stands thus: Taft has against him practically every state west of the Mississippi river. The other normally republican states are divided. In them public a ; sentiment is against Taft, but the i bosses and the machines, backed by 1 special privileges, are for him The fight in states like Illinois, Michigan Indiana and Pennsylvania will be this anti-machine fight, and the result will be split delegations, part for La Fol lette and part for Taft. These fights will cause bitterness and will destroy any possible chance Taft might have for being elected. This will all become clear to the southern delegates, and they will de sert That will be the signal for the gen eral stampede. Two years of Taft's administration transferred 11 republican states to the democratic column. They are Colorado, Connecticut, In diana, Maine, Massachusetts, Mis souri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and West Virginia. In 1908 the above states were car ---------— ried by Taft. His failure on progres sive policies sent them into the demo cra J* c co - umn - The republican states which re mained republican in 1910 were those where progressive leaders were in control. Such states are Wisconsin, Minne eota, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, South, Dakota, North Dakota, California, Oregon and Washington. j Thus republican success is seen to be along the lines of progress!vism. The renomination of a progressive candidate like La Follette gives the party a chance to win. Any other! course makes defeat absolutely cer- 1 taln. : Even the president's own state i (Ohio) will not give him its indorse-1 ment. Already the progressives are busy preparing to get progressive delegates from that state. The Ohio progressives hold Taft responsible for the overwhelming democratic vic tory in 1910, and they demand that the progressives be given a chance to redeem the state. Presidential primaries in Oregon, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and New Jersey— all coming before April 20, 1912—will help to show the sentiment of the voter and to make doubly certain the nomination of La Follette.

Harlowton, Oct. 22.—A branch line to be known as the North & South railroad, connecting Harlowton on the Puget Sound and Columbus on the Northern Pacific by way of the Big Basin country seems assured in the near future. The appearance of a big party of surveyors in Harlowton this week disclosed the fact that a final survey has been made to within about 40 miles of Harlowton and it is ex pected grading will begin this fall. Columbus capitalists are boosting thb new road. Last fall President Earling and a party of Milwaukee directors went over the survey of the branch line be tween Harlowton and Melville. The probability of this latter road being built in the spring, it is said, has in duced the Northern Pacific, through local parties, to forestall the Mil waukee by building first. The Big Basin country, tributary to the proposed new line, includes more than 1,000,000 acres, the great est part of which is tillable and well adapted to winter wheat, apples ana berries. DEUES VETOES OF TAFT TYRANNICAL SENATOR CLAPP BITTERLY DE NOUNCES THE ACTION OF THE PRESIDENT. Chicago, Oct. 18.— Bitter excoriation of President Taft, a promise to carry the fight for presidential nomination to the home and a plea for the aid of American women, marked the closing session of the progressive element of the republican party. Senator Moses E. Clapp, of Minne sota, brought the denunciation of Pres ident Taft to its sharpest climax after Senator Coe I. Crawford, of South Da kota, had been interrupted by a dis senter in the audience and forced to quit speaking. Calling the chief executive's action in the Arizona statehood matter the "blackest chap ter in all tyranny outside of the ab solute despotism of an unbridled king," Senator Clapp said in part : "Now, whether you believe in the recall or not, I think you will agree with me that it is not for you to say whether the people of Arizona shall have the recall. We had this question up in congress. We said the people of Arizona must vote on the question again, and whatever way they voted, they would be allowed to come into the union. And, my friends, the president of the United States vetoed that resolution, and one was passed providing that the people of Arizona must vote again, but must vote against the recall, though they can put it into their constitution after ad mission. "A fine lesson to teach people on the threshold of admission to this upion! What, think you, would say the disembodied spirits of those men whose bodies lie moldering on the battlefields of the republic if, looking down, they could realize that the price of admission to this union was a stultification of the electorate of the individual state? "I want to sav that this is the blackest chapter in all tyranny out side of the absolute despotism of an unbridled king. And, remember, whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad." The senator called the judiciary system as it existed more of a legis lative and executive branch of the government, which "can make laws as it sees fit and repeal them at its leisure." He beheld in the judiciary a greater power of menace to popular government than the legislature, and declared that if the recall were valu able at all it was needed to "defend the composite people against factors of too great power." "If it will cause judges to 'keep their ear to the ground' and base their decisions upon political pros pects," he concluded, "they will do it now, and the sooner we get rid of that kind of judges the better we are off." Senator Crawford was in the midst of a denunciation of "jackpotism" and the bribery of legislatures when a man giving the name of Rudolph M. Pat terson asked if it were not true that Senator La Follette, after receiving financial aid from Senator Stephenson, had turned from him and acted the part of an ingrate. Immediately the meeting was in volved in an uproar, which was quieted only when scores had attempt ed to do violence to the interrupter and a policeman had been called. Senator Crawford then quit speaking. Sheriff's Sale. B. E. Stack, Plaintiff, versus J. S. Hovis, Rebecca C. Hovis, his wife; W. H. Hopkins, and Roy A.
