TAFT AND ROOSEVELT. The striking feature of Taft's speech hit manly attitude. He paid high tribute to Roosevelt and the admin istration pollcieB without any servility. H* has been criticized on the ground that he was a Roosevelt man. Hit attitude is the only one politically possible and honest. The convention occasionally kill themselves while en whlch nominated him, had endorsed Roosevelt and his policies—the policies which it is generally conceded that Taft has helped to formulate—as a member of the cabinet. These policies have been immensely popular with the people. Taft could not repudiate them, and at the same time stand on the Chicago platform. Taft is aggressive and able. His attitude is sound and it haa vote-getting poaaifcttiUts as welL MR. GOMPERS' PREDICAMENT. The independence party platform denounces the republican and demo cratic labor planks as "political bun combe and contemptible claptrap, un worthy of national parties claiming to be serious and sincere." Then the in dependent plank is set forth in this naked and unequivocal fashion: We assert that In all actions grow ing out of a dispute between employ ers and employes concerning terms or conditions of employment no injunc tion should issue until after a trial upon the merits, that such trial should be had before a Jury, and that in no case of alleged contempt should any person be deprived of liberty without «. trial by jury. This and other equally emphatic prft-labor planks adopted by the Inde pendence party are exactly what Sam uel Gompeds desires, as we understand It. If he was not driving at something Of the kind at Chicago and Denver, he did not make his meaning clear. did not gfct all he wanted from the republican Or the democratic conven tion. Now that the independence party gives it to him, is he not in duty bound to advocate the election of the candidates who stand upon such a platform? As the alleged wielder of the labor vote, demanding certain legislation, ha would be derelict In his duty to labor if he did not advise laboring men to vote the independence ticket. It is evident that Mr. Gompers was a Httle hasty, as a labor leader, in ad vising his followers to vote the demo cratic ticket, says The "Washington Post. 4- he was looking out solely to* he Interests of labor, ha should have waited until the independence party had spoken. He is now in a very awkward predicament. If he op pcees the independence platform, he will be opposing that which he de aSAnded aa a labor leader, and if he fJvors the independence ticket, he will have to swallow every word of his recent pronouneiamento. If he does not take back what he has said, he will lay himself open to the charge that he is trying to swing the labor vote to the democratic party for poll tics' sake, at the sacrifice of labor's Interests. Perhaps Mr- Gompers would do wall to advise laboring to ui« their own judgment aftd vote for any ticket they please. They will do so anyhow, and doubtless many of them will sup port the independence ticket is spite of anything Mr. oompers may say or fall to say. The adoption of such strong labor planks by a political party that may develop respectable strength next November shows that Mr. Gompers is not the only friend of labor in this country, and perhaps tfe* w«»t infiueatiAl o&A T*a la*. deavorlng to exterminate the rest of mankind. ®r Woraa than a dtsappetate*, feated, primary election, political can didate—Is to be stranded in the coun try seven miles from nowhere—with no gasoline hi your auto.

Illinois, which In 1906 was third In production, la now second and West Virginia has dropped to third place. Pennsylvania is still first on the list. Illinois' production for 1907, as given in the report, was 51, 817,146 tons short, having a spot value of 154,687,382. Export of coal from this country to Canada. Cuba and elsewhere haa been steadily growing and this year promises to break all existing records. Latest government reports show total exports of coal for a period of eleven months as 11,565, 248 tons, with a value of $35,750,637. Corresponding figures for 1907 showed a total of only 20,099,947 tons and 1906 was still less. The change in Illinois' position recalls the big coal strike of two years ago, as the in creased production for 1907 waa due to the renewed activity in mining after the recovery from the effects of the suspension on April 1, 1906. During this suspension practically all the im portant mines of Illinois were idle and 49,792 out of a total of 61,988 miners were unemployed for 58 days. Be cause of the conditions the production of West Virginia in 1906 exceeded that of Illinois by 1,810,246 tons, as the suspension there affected only a email number of the mines for about SO davs. An Army of Moths. The army Of moths which MMfe caused such destruction to trees in Buffalo, Detroit and other eastern cities, has at last reached Chicago in pests are now ravaging the foliage in the city parks and In the suburbs. Gardeners and city authorities every where are uniting in an efTort o save the trees, and a war of extermination will begin at once. The invaders are the particular kind known as wiuto marked Tussock moths, and according entomologists they have made, unusual headway this year because certain other insects, their natural parasites, have been destroyed by atmospheri* conditions. The moth is a favorite of this country, and its favorite tidbits are the leaves and young bark of the lindens, soft maples and horse chest nuts. The caterpillar is a gorgeous creature, with a coral red head, a yellow body streaked with coral gray and a pair of waving black plumes on Its forehead that remind one of the decorations of a funeral hearse. The female moth deposits from 100 to 600 eggs In a gray-colored oval mass, which may be seen hanging from twigs of trees. The young caterpillars begin to feed on leaves as soon as they are born. They also prey upon fruit and have a habit of girdling twigs by eating the bark in a circle. The pest is spreading westward at aa alarming rate and vigorous steps are being taken to stamp it out. Th* most effective way to protect trees that are attacked, say those who have made a study of the matter, is to spray the leaves with a solution of senate of lead and water.

The cost in lives and money of the contamination of a city's drinking water, a subject In which this city has shown a $50,000,000 interest by revers ing the flow of the Chicago river, soon will be fixed. Figures secured by the American Medical association, whose headquarters are here, show how en ormous the total for all the United States must be. Columbus, O., which had 748 cases of typhoid last April, has been taken as an example, medical statisticians of the association adding that the death rate from typhoid is 10 per cent that courts have held that $10,000 i«s a fair estimate of the mini mum value of a human life that $50 per case was the average of doctor's bills, and $125 the average cost of fu nerals, and therefore Columbus paid about $200,000 In April for the privilege of drinking water contaminated with sewage, "Two and a half millions a year Is rather a high price for One city to pay for bad water It would be cheaper to get pure water, no matter how much It cost#," was the medical expert's comment.

This is the St. Clair tunnel under the river con necting the United States and Canada at Port Huron, Mich., and Sarnia. Ont. This is on the direct line from Chicago to eastern Canada, on the Grand Trunk railroad, and the first electric locomo tives have already been put into ser vice at the tunnel on trains running to and from this city. The electrifica tion of the tunnel marks a great step In the progress of the electrical science as applied to transportation. The mighty steam moguls which used to handle trains through the tunnel have been replaced by compact, powerful electric engines driven by 250 horse power alternating current motors. The frames of the novel loconrotlves are similar to those of steam moguls, on the frame being a cab of structural steel provided with doors at each ?nd each side. The engines are built as two half units, each with three drt-ing wheels,, and these units can be coupled up to one when desired, with free pas sage through the doors from one sec tion to another. Inside the cab is the electrical equipment. Practically the entire -operations connected with the running of the trains are carried on by electricity. A motor-driven air com pressor is installed in the cab and sup plies compressed air not only for the operation of the brakes on the en gine and the train service, but also for the working of the various devices on the locomotive for which compressed air is used, including the operation of the trolley bow and the electrically controlled switches, the ringing of the bell, the sanding of the track and the setting of the circuit breakers. The tunnel has been in existence about fifteen years and Is now one of the most important gateways of traffic be tween Canada and the United States, and hereafter will be one of th* smoke less ones. $75,000 26,928 .* 9.875 V^Yv*\' 87.40" i'• f• 44.80') :*198,50» Total-.....: .":V.
