The work of the democratic state convention, held in Milwaukee last Tuesday and Wednesday, was very har monious and resulted in the adoption of the platform, with but a very little change, which was adopted by the democrats previous to the primary elec tion. H. H. Mansop was re-elected chairman of the state central committee without opposition, and W. C. Brawley is again elected seoretary. Bryan’s Milwaukee speeches were listened to by about 30,000 people on Saturday evening. His tour in Wisconsin was a big success, so much so that Taft’s gatherings suffered in comparison. Therefore republicans are scared and aie calling on LaFol lette to help them out. When Taft came into this state before, he never mentioned LaFollette’s name, and utterly ignored him. Now, it is differ ent. Roosevelt is guilty of kicking a man when he is down, and he used a letter, written by Taft, to further humilate Senator Forker. The Senator has written a letter which is as full of cutting sarcasm as any written dur ing the campaign, in which he Hays Roosevelt to the queen’s taste and shows up his man, Taft, in a very un enviable light. In fact, he tells how Taft has been hobnobbing with the Standard Oil magnates nearly all the past summer. Taft will have to with draw from ve presidential race if Teddy finds out that this is true. Candidate Taft, in opening his per sonal campaign, the other day, in Cincinnati, predicted that if Bryan was elected the present panic would con tinue and grow worse, while if he, Taft, should be elected it would cease instantly. Oi course, Mr. Taft has sense enough to see what any one cau readily see, —that this prediction is inconsistent with the fact that the pres ent panic came on when his party was in complete control of the govern ment, and has been in such complete control ever since the last panic. Grover Cleveland’s letter, purport ing to be a sort of dying declaration to effect that he would vote for and sup port Taft in the present campaign turns out to be a forgery. The New York Times, which published the letter now admits that it was a forgery. Apropos of this it is an interesting fact that Mr. Cleveland’s widow has denied that her late husband held the senti ments embodied in the forged letter. Mr. Cleveland did hold such senti ments during two presidential cam paigns, and if he abandoned them be fore his death the fact is interesting, though, perhaps no more significant now than the changed attitude of many otheg leading “gold democrats,’’ who are supporting Mr. Bryan this year. There was a pretty good reason why Mr. Taft should discard this dignified role first assumed by him, —of waiting on his front porch for delegations to come and be talked to. And the same reason will answer to explain the president’s change of an attitude which he explicitly said, and repeated, would be his attitude during the cam -saign —an attitude of nonintervention, 'he truth of the matter fs that the political outlook for Mr. Taft looked worse and worse every day, and they couldn’t stand it to remain quietly at home and see their campaigu going to the dogs, without making an effort to steem the tide of “progressivism” which, instead of coming their way, as they had confidently expected, ap peared to be sweeping Bryan into the White hoiwe. No “progressive” republican has been more readj and hearty than Mr. Bryan has been In approval of the pres ident’s efforts to curb the big law-break ers policies, wuieh, as all know, origin ated with Bryan, and were, before Mr. Roosevelt adopted them, stigmatized as “anarehist’e” by all the republican newspapers. We democrats have be lieved Mr. Roosevelt to be honest in these efforts, and we have not been slow to say this. But we have known too, as everyone knows, that he is a very impulsive man, and often goes off “half-cocked,” as the saying is. His accusations against Governor Haskell of Oklahoma turns out to belong to this class of the president’s sayings.—the things that he says without considera tion, on the spur of the moment, aud in the heat of anger. And this is also true ci his accusations against Senator Foraker of his own party, as anyone who r’ads, without prejudice, the lat ter’s letter, will readily see. Denounced Judge Taft. In May, 11X13, the Journal, official or gan of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, had this to say of Judge Taft: “Judge Taft’s decision proclaims members, of the B. of L. E. a hand of conspirators. “We cannot accept Judge Taft’s de cision in any other light than treason to republican institutions and the liber ties of the people. It is. will be. and ought to be denounced and repudiated by all liberty-loving men.” Big Land Auction in Canada.

Governor Haskell, it appears, had a bomb up his sleeve, for the president, but he bided his time, to throw it. He waited until the president held an all day conference with his cabinet, discus ing a suitable reply to M-. Bryan’s letter calling for proofs of the accusa tions against Haskell. Then, after the president replied to Bryan, repeating his former charges against Haskell, and adding to them, the Oklahoma governor tired his bomb. Meantime Attorney General Monnett of Ohio, whom the president cited as a witness, admitted that all he knew was hearsay—and the hearsay was not about the Oklahoma governor—who vas treasurer of the democratic campaign, but about an other Haskell having, as it happened, the same initials. And. so far as the Prairie Oil company was concerned all the governor did was to prevent his attorney general from interfering with that company's plain legal rights under a franchise granted by President Roosevelt’s Secretary of the Interior, before Oklahoma became a state.

The president, also, was going to be very dignified.—for him. In fact he was going to be not himself daring the campaign.—but he was going to be a Theodore Roosevelt whom the people do not know and never heard of, a Theodore Roosevelt who could calmly sit under his shade tree at Oyster Bay and let a political fight go on without taking a hand in it. He chafed for some weeks under this unnatural re straint,—self imposed in order to put a quietus upon the common impression of people that Mr. Taft is Roosevelt’s nominee, rather than the nominee of his party. It was, however, more than the president could do. —and now he is into the campaign head over heels. and Continuing for 15 Days Only E. A. Edmonds was elected chairman of the republican state central com mittee to succeed W. D. ConDor, at the convention held in Madison. It was the old light, the Stalwarts against the half breeds and the Stalwarts came out on top. LaFollette’s choice for chair man was August Backus, of Milwaukee. The LaFolletteites made a very strong fight for Backus and also in an attempt to have what is known as LaFollette’s Chicago platform adopted, but they failedln one of the most bitter fights known in Wisconsin’s history. The committee fought all n : n ncccunt of the inability to agree ompromise planks embodying the “Wisconsin OUR SHOE DEPT.

Rosen berry, of this city, was elected a member of the state central committee from the Tenth congressional district. Mr Taft was going to make a very dignified personal campaign.

But, alas! it turned out that financial panics beget econ omy, and the present one had this usual effect, so that the delegations stayed at home. After several weeks of hopless waiting for them to come, Mr. Taft is now calling on these dele gations, at their homes. He is thus getting bis first lesson in true demo cracy, and, by the way, imitating Bryan—not very pleasant for him, perhaps, but it was “a woodchuck case.” He had to do that or nothiug. The Milwaukee Journal thinks that in view of the stand taken by President Roosevelt, that all trust magnates should get out of the campaign, E. A. Edmonds, chairman of the republican state central committee, shoula tender his resignation. Mr. Edmonds has been connected in the past with the Falls Manufacturing Cos., and the Rhinelander Paper Cos., both of which are affiliated with the paper trust.
