A DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR ON A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDEN f Ahont three WMstl ago at the Demoeratie primary election in Texas, former Governor Oaear B, Oajlqwitl JtsWwri Senator Culbrr son by about 31,000 votes, (lovernor Col(nitt made his crunpnit:" on the ground thai Woodrow Wilson has been the greatest hihuri In our history, (iovenior Colquitt gave out U interview in whieli ha said i "The Wilson .idministration has been the fTMtMl fail ure in the history of llM PWiMentjr, The south is a land flowing with milk and honey. It has made one of its big gest and best crops in its history, and yet because of the titter Incompetency of the government its business is pros trated, its credit Impaired, and thousands of its people are starving." This j-atne. murk you, from life-long Democrat seeking the Democratic nomination for United States Senator, (lovernor Col quitt even goes further and bitterly denounces the President's Mexi can policy and the wholesale destruction of American lives and loss of property. For the first time in its history men are talking about Texas going Republican i for the first time in its history a Democratic administration at Washington is fighting tooth and nail to save it self from defeat in the strongest Democratic state in the nation. It is said on most reliable authority thai 90 per cent, of the Democrats living in western and routhweatern Texas will for the first time in their history vote a Republican ticket. Another great Democrat, Col. George Harvey, in the August is sue of the North American Review, denounces Wilson for his repudia tion of his party platform, and especially in its demand for the pro tection of American lives and American property, and Colonel Hat vey points out that" Wilson has totally failed. And be it remambereo that Colonel Harvey made .Mr. Wilson President. Colonel Harvey i out for Hughes red hot and predicts his election. WHAT WATTERSON THINKS OF PRESIDENT WILSON Four years ago one of the most Vehement and persistent support ers of Woodrow Wilson was the veteran Colonel Henry Watteison, of the Louisville Courier Journal. Colonel Watteraon soon found thai his idol had clay feet, beginning with Mr. Wilson's cold turndown of Colopel George Harvey, Lhe man who groomed Wilson four years agfl for the White House. Mars Henry's faith in the "lonely man in the White House" has been steadily slipping since that time, and while he is backing the present Democratic ticket, Be is doing it in a peit'une tory way. In the Courier-Journal recently Colonel Watteraon discussed Hughes and Wilson. Alter some of the good old Democratic whaling of the Republican nominee, Colonel Watterson then refers to the Prea ident in the following terms: "Mr. Wilson, on the other hand, is a clever educated op portunist, who has studied the cue papers, girded his loins and gone after the interests hip and thigh. He reasons right ly that the age of Force is gone or going and that the Age of Numbers is upon us. He intimates that they did not know everything in the days of Thomas .Jefferson, and, having penned a trifle cynically his Jefferaonian honrbook, he would improve upon it. He is ambitious and would found I school of Wilaonian Democracy in succession to Jeffcrsonian Democracy, "This the Courier-Journal contests, seriously doubting the Mntimentalhan of the New Freedom, and wholly rejecting the cant any hypoeracy of the Uplift." Colonel Watterson also says that as between Hughes and WO son, "we take Wilson," but he also says: "The Courier-Journal is giving the Wilson candidacy but a qualified support, reserving to itself right in the event of his election, to decline responsibility for what may follow and oppose such of his policies and assumptions as it may not approve." Lexington Leader. WONDERFUL APPRECIATION' "Colonel Perry Winkle, the Sage of Winkle hurst , who has al ways been a Republican, announces that he will support Wilson in this Campaign. When seen today by your reporter, he said: " 'Yes, indeed. I am a great admirer of Wilson and shall vote for him because, Brat, he has shown most wonderful appreciation in that he has appointed to onVi mainly only those who were contributors to his campaign fund in 1!12; second, because he came to the South, where he gets his main siipporl. to select the members of his Cabinet having selected but , of his Cabinet, Lansing ami Kedlield, born in America, north of Mason juid Dixson's line." Yazoo Itazoo (Dem.)--J. W. B. S., Idaho Springs, Colo. WE DEFER TO CHINA The Democratic Free Trade Hill put pig iron on the free list and almost at once a Chinone Arm secured an order from a Seattle firm for 850,000 tons of pig iron year for ten years. Kven a Democrat can see that this means work and wages for the Chinese while our own people are forced into idleness. The war and the war alone has saved iia from an industrial panic. THE SUGAR INDEX W hen the Democrats came into power sugar was selling for Use cents a pound and yet it rb paying fifty million dollars a year in revenue to help support the government.' Since the Democrats n dueed the tariff, we an- losing about $3(1,000,000 a year in revenue, and we can buy sugar for almost eight cents a pound. Favorite outdoor sport : Sighting the Hreutcu.

There is a Real Difference Cream of tartar, derived from grapes, is used in Royal Baking Powder because it is the best and most healthful ingredient known for the purpose. Phosphate and alum, which are de rived from mineral sources, are used in some baking powders, instead of cream of tartar, because they are cheaper. If you have been induced to use baking powders made from alum or phosphate, use Royal Baking Powder instead. You will be pleased with the results and the difference in the quality of the food.

It Is a fair flotation. This is a MmM lime to lis ten to the answers. When the Demo cratic Administration took over the lioverninent from the Republicans the Boat of Federal (lovernment for each person, IneludiiiK the interest on the debt and pensions for soldiers and many other incidentals, was $10 n year. The Democratic Administration hns just forced through the Congress aiaaaafaa which mean that the Federal Government Is to most each of us $16 a vear, with less pensions and no more incidentals unless the Democrat a have added them for the sake of economy. How does that happen? The Republi cans did the business of the (Jovern IMM with an expense of $l.lMMI.(lilil,00n ii vein. Divide by lau.ODo.dOO which aiaaaa the total population, ami it shows $lo for curb one to pay. Hut the Democrats have raised lhe appro priations to a little more than $1, 600,000,000 for the year, and dividing that by 100,000.000 j ou see that each of us must pay $16 a year to support, the Government. ' The balance of the $:tf mentioned at lirst refers, presuma bly, to State, counlv and municipal taxation It would take a library M books to tell all the Democrats havi done to increase those other laxes. but tl.ey bumped it to $j.0l)o,O0o in Massa chusetts State expenses in five years of "economy." Every man wrongs the world who doi'B not do what he can for the public good while he is in it. Hughe Sympathetic With De mand of Labor Which Are Proved to Be Just. "I am sympathetic with every demand to improve the condi tions of labor, to secure reason able compensation for labor. I am in sympathy with every ef fort to better human condition, and particularly the condition of those who toll in industrial pur ulta, In railroad purauits, In all theae great activities that are essential to our prosperity. But when you have a proposition to change the scale of wage you have a vital proposition which requires examination. You must at least know whether the de mand ia a Juat one. "Labor, of course, should not desire anything but what ia Just. I do not believe labor intenda to aak for anything but what la Just. What ia Juat can be ex amined and will aurvlve inves tigation. Nothing la loat by hav ing the process of reason applied If only that which ia Juat ia required." Mr. Hughea In HI Speech at Portland, Maine. "Ion I'rond to Msrht" President I Wilson has changed his mind again.

Im mediately following the killing of sev eral hiinlr-il Americans. Including women and little children, Mr Wilson proclaimed to the world that lhe dot al States was "loo proud to light." Mr. Wilson did not explain to his au.::enre. tllhci did be give any Indication of what in his estimation would consti tute a "jusl cause." "We have seized Ml destroyed your property, we have murdered your men and your children MM aa have ravaged your women. Ia there anything that will make a MM llvered Gringo fight?" ia the pleasing salutation with which American army and nuvy ollicers are greeted on ever aide in Mexico. Tills gentle reminder of "too proud to light" is generally fol lowed by the Mexicans with spitting on the uniforms, and some times in the fares, of American soldiers and suit ors, and they arc helpless to defend themselves because they have been re in atedly warned that any American In th service who gets Into a light with a Mexican will be summarily court-mar-how can the European nutions be blamed for failing to realize that "Americu is as ready to light as any nation In the world." however just the cause must be? it ail piranm "If Hughes wins an Oregon town will get a new shingle mill employing fifty men," says the Olympln Hecorder, "ac cording to an announcement of the Individual who took an option on tim bered land. If Wilson wins the option will be allowed to lapse. That's the wuy with a thousand and one enter prises, all waiting to see which wuy the wind blows. The moment It Is assured that Charles E.

IHii mm ml a kii r,",v..' 1 Kituiper's Misrepresentation Tin r Is developing serious question anions ISbOf leaders as to whether Samuel (iompera has not betrayed labor and the Federation of which he is the head by advocating the Adauison bill and supporting President Wilson because of It. In November, 14. the Ameri can Federation of labor adopted the following resolution "RKSOI.VKD, That the American Federation of Itbor, as ia the past, declares that the regulation of wages and hours of labor should be under taken through trades union aotlvlt and not by legislation, except insofar as the employment of women and chil dren, health aud morals, and the em ployes of the Natioual, State and Muni cipal governments are affected.'' This same resolution was approved again in November. 1115. How Mr. tiompers can reconcile his present at titude with that resolution stands un explained. The result which the Fed eral Ion wisely is rapidly approaching.
