that litigation against the trusts under the Sherman law, even when fol

found if we are to get rid of their evil without injuring legitimate busi
ness and legitimate combinations, at the same time.

TAFT RESTS AT HOT
SPRINGSS, FIVE DAYS
(National News Association)
HOT 'SPRINGS. Va., Nov. 1. Pres
ident Taft will be a visitor in Hot
Springs for five days, beginning to
morrow and continuing until next
Monday, the day before election.
While here the President will reside at
Mrs. Seth Barton French's villa, which
he has leased for a short period and
A few days since a leading newspaper published the fact, detailed by
statistics, that in practically every case where a trust had been attack
ed under the Sherman law, and even where the decisions of the highest
courts have been adverse to that trust, the prices of the commodities sold
by trusts bo attacked have advanced. It makes no difference to the dis
cussion as to why they have advanced whether it was accidental or the
result of spite work, or the operation of the general economic laws the
fact remain the name. Dissolution of the trusts under the Sherman law
does not lower prices. afTords no relief to the consumer, and does not
The days of small concerns doing practically a local business have
gone with the days of our boyhood. They can never be restored. Legis
lation will not turn back the economic progress of the last twenty or
even the last ten years. It cannot. That being the case, and none can
successfully dispute it, it cannot be denied that the platform of the pro
gressives as set forth in their Chicago meeting demanding that a definite
rule of conduct and constructive legislation be applied to the trust prob
lem, is the only sensible solution. Combinations of capital and labor are
a modern necessity, economically. They cannot be destroyed. Therefore,
they must be guided and controlled, bo that they cannot and will not
become more powerful than the government itself and serve as agencies
of evil rather than good.
President Taft, in order to call attention away from his miserable
tariff record and the numerous other fiascos of his administration is
hurling defiance at the trusts and announcing that he will break them in
two, no matter what the cost. The administration legal department is fil
ing suits against large combinations and otherwise occupying the center
of the stage. All to what purpose? The consumer is not benefitted;
neither Is the middleman, nor the small manufacturer. The only tangible
result up to date is the shaking out of the small investor and putting all
the stock of these mammoth corporations into the hands of still fewer
While the federal government is fogging around making a big noise,
up in the state of Wisconsin constructive legislation has placed the corpor
ation in control of the people to such a degree that the public's rights
are protected, but not to such a degree that the investor in the stock of
the corporation is deprived of his legitimate income.
If the trusts that would exploit the masses were to map out a plan that
would enable them to continue to control everything within their pro
vince, and to narrow that control down to a handful of men, they would
not and could not devise a more satisfactory method than that which is
now being pursued by the administration.
Nominating a President
United States Senator Bourne, Republican from Oregon, has petition
ed the Republican national committee to direct the delegates to the next
Republican national convention be chosen by popular primaries, and that
at these primaries the Republicans voting for delegates shall express
their preference foi president. There Is no likelihood that Senator Bourne's
request will be granted. National committeeman New, representing Indi
ana, pooh-poohs the suggestion, and he is undoubtedly of the same opin
ion as the majority of the Republican national committee.
The delegates to the next national convention will be chosen as they
have alwayB been by district conventions, and these conventions will be
manipulated by politicians. Votes will be traded so that the county which
is allotted a delegate to the national convention will have to promise Its
support to a certain candidate for district chairman, and to another candi
date for congress, and so on down the list.
The wishes of the people in the matter of delegates, as well as
their preference for president will not be taken into consideration. A
handful of politicians will write hlgh-30unding phrases that will be linked
together to form a "platform" and then the party's rank and file will be
told this "platform" Is law and gospel and infallible and If any dare
question it, he Is not a Republican.

members of the household are already
The President is coming toHot
Springs, to rest. Since he left Boston
on Sept. 15 he has traveled almost
15,000 miles and has averaged four
speeches a day. A few days spent on
the golf links and in riding over the
Virginia hills and he expects to be in
physical trim to complete his tour and
return to the capital and dispose of
the accumulated business before con

The same Issue is confronting the Democratic party. It has been
bound by two rules. First, it requires two thirds of the delegates at the
national convention to make a nomination, and second, each state delega
tion is bound by the unit rule. Under these rules a bare majority in each
state forces the entire state delegation to vote as a unit, and by this
practice the two-thirds vote of the convention Is obtained. The rule is
made plainly for the benefit of political bosses and manipulators. It is a
rule that disfranchises enough delegates to swing a nomination.
There is no place in a Republican from of government for the unit
rule. Under its provisions 46 delegates in New York state can vote 90
delegates, 44 of them against their will. Under Its provisions, 39 dele
gates In Pennsylvania can force 37 delegates to vote for a candidate they
do not want,, nor do their constituents want. Yet the Democratic party
makes pretentions of being a party ruled by the masses of its voters.
Nothing is further from the truth.
Our whole system of nominating a president is made with a view to
disfranchising the masses and enabling a few politicians to manipulate
the nomination to suit themselves. After this is done, the word is passed
down the line that "the voice of the people" has spoken, and everybody
must support the "people's" choice. We are handed out such twaddle as
characterized the recent utterance of the Wayne county Republican com
mittee about the majority of the party ruling when the majority of the
party has no voice, not even the voice of decent protest in the conduct of
any business which selects its presidential candidate or formulates its
Our forefathers were too nearly related to raonarchial forms of gov
ernment to give much voice to the people. They gave the people the low
er house of congress and then placed the senate, the presidential veto,
and the supreme court on guard to see to it that the people did not be
come too democratic, in their demands. They created the electoral col
lege upon the theory that the people were not to be trusted with the privi
lege of electing their own president.
The rising tide of democracy has made the electoral college a non
entity and it should be abolished by a constitutional amendment. The de
mand of the people to have a voice in their own government has changed
the complexion of the senate and has wiped out the czar-like rules in the
house. In some states we have witnessed the passage of direct pri
mary laws that enable the masses to express their preference for president
and this expression is equivalent to a command to the delegates.
It is a little too early to hope for the adoption of this practice through
out the nation, and we may confidently expect that one, if not both, of
the next presidential candidates of the two old parties will be the choice,
not of the people who compose the parties but of the politicians that make
It a business to manipulate conventions.
The people, however, have this redress: If their wishes are disregard
ed they may register a protest at the ballot box. It is to be regretted that
the leaders of the Republican party Invite the rebuke rather than the co-
operatloa of the
