THE PRETENDER EXHIBITS HJS ARR0QANCE. ' SHi. LL THE PEOPIiE RULE? That is the question! that Candidate Bryan is so fond of asking. Mr. llryan declaresthat he is the heir to the "Roosevelt reforms" and asserts Ms proprietary rights to these policies. But hew about the bright of the people to rule, to regulate and to -con trol" reforms? ' The government ,of the United States and its policies belong to the people who entrust them to elected men to carry out, we thought. There re no heirship rights, either in reforms or other policies, rights either of discovery on exportation. There is one dominant issue the choice of the candidate best fitted to deal as president withthe national problems of the next four years. What are- Bryan's : "talking" qualifications compared with the "acting qualifications' cf Mr. Taft. ' The: people are the 1 heirs to the Roosevelt reforms. When did Bkyan get the power to challenge their right, to entrust their property to whom they please? It is pretty .Impudent of Bryan to claim that he is heir to Roosevelt's policies In one bqeath and then 'in the next to denounce republican policies in the next Which. do yout want,. Mr. Voter, a man like Taft, who has had long ex perience in Doing 'Things or an unsteady and a professional politician, who has NEVER PONE ANtYTHING' BUT TALK. ONE .'DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE DECLARES HIMSELF. DOWN AT MIXXCIE THERE is a democrat who was nominated for the legislature from Delaware county. His name is Higman. Now Candidate. Higman has thrown consternation into the ranks of his party by notifying the Delaware county democratic committee that if elected he wilt vote with the republicans for county local option, while maintaining "his standing as a democrat on other questions. Of course, this wilfbe disputed as a campaign lie, but the truth remains nevertheless. . - Candidate Higman,. with admirable frankness, says he is willing to retire from the ticket If the democratic county central committee so desires. He wished to give notice long before election what he would do. Now the committee is between the deep blue sea and the other extremity. Higman is popular and strong with his constituency. If elected he will do as he says. If asked to retire from the running, the effect will be a walk-, away for the republicans In Delaware county. , . Now, Mr. Higman i3 not a prohibitionist, but a democrat Like thousands of other democrats In Indiana, he will absolutely refuse to wear the Lieber-Farrbanks brewery-collar. They haven't got a ring through Mr- Higman's nose.. 1 Mr. Higman says they won't-get'hintto wear one. either. Good boy, Higman! INDIANA HARBOR IS to have-one of the largest political meetings of the campaign next Saturday night. Two distinguished republicans, Senator James A. He'menway and Congressman Theodore Burton, of Ohio, the man who nominated Taft, are to address the voters on the political issues of the day, and they will be greeted by an immense crowd. The voters of East Chicago and Indiana Harbor, regardless of party affiliation, should turn out en masse and hear the issues clearly and concisely stated. They will be shown the deeds of William H.'Taft and how he-has earned the presidency. REV. A. T. BRIGGS, WHO comes to this district from Attica to succeed Rev- Delos M. Wood, as superintendent of the Hammond district, is deserving of a hearty welcome, for he comes to Hammond with a full appreciation of the greatness and spiritual need of a great manufacturing region. There is need of such stalwart fighters for clean citizenship here and he should be accorded a reception worthy of him. WITH REFERENCE TO the Wattersonian argument in Bryan's behalf, that "on no question of the time is Mr. Bryan a menace to the country," it has been tritely said that it is a strange argument on which to build a campaign for the greatest office in the world, to say that a man is not sp conspicuously, unfit for it as he once was. THE BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT in the thinly disguised glee, evi denced by the democrats over the fact that with all their hard work in Maine they could not carry the state as they had predicted, is not an iota to what they will experience in November when W.-.H. Taft shows them what a majority he will have there, TBE HAPPIEST WOMAN IN TOWN. She does not live out on the avenue whA-e wide lawns speak dignity and a man's house is as big and as ugly as his purse can buy. . She lives on a side street where the paving has not yet arriveq. ine lawn Is a few feet square, and in the sum mer . time the home is a bower of beauty. There are only five rooms. It is a cozy home, all used. It was a cottago built for two. It is now oc cnpled by four. - There's himself and herself and the boy and the girl "us four and no more." Himself is a man, every Inch, He is lfarty, independent, energetic and steady as a clock. He has got his big feet firmly planted on the lower rounds of the success ladder and is climbing slowly, surely, carefully. He loves herself and no other. The boy and the girl are healthy youngsters. Herself does not complain of shattered nerves, "But," you say "How can a woman who must econo mize and pinch enjoy herself?" Perhaps herself could not explain that You can enjoy, you know, where you cannot explain. She might say. "Well, we have enough, and a little to spare for the poor. There's enjoyment in.darning himself's Sunday coat and the boy's, socks. There's zest in turn ing and making over garments.. We are getting on. We have no envy of those who live in big houses. We love one another and ape content." Understand that language? What herself means tp say 'is that love is the greatest thing In the world and contentment is the next to the greatest thing. Or- You could explain It in this way : In service there is compensation. There Is Joy in doing for others. If herself sometimes must wrinkle her brows over a household problem, studying how to "cut the corners' for the sake of himself and tbe other two, why, measure for measured-sure as the law of gravity, certain as the law of chemical affinity herself will be paid back tenfold, a hundredfold! Ah, little woman, you do not know how rich you are in being the happiest woman In town. Enjoy yourself while you may. Who knows? One of the, two may grow up to honor your gray hairs or break your heart. Or some day ypu may live in, a big house where things are gilded and arms are empty and life is hollow. Enjoy yourself and himself and the other two. THIS DATE I" HISTORY.

There are a great many' huffy people In the world- Vou meet them almost everywhere. You can scarcely crook your finger without giving them of fense. They are always on the look eut for slights and insults, and can take them when their are neither in tended nor given. Huffy people are not pleasant companions. You never know when a spell will take them, or how long It will last. You are always pay ing them homage and doing them rev erence, or they will think they are not appreciated. Such persons need a little humanity, so that they may not think of themselves more highly than they ought to think, and a little of the grace ot God in their hearts to sweeten their tempei; and cure them of their un grounded suspicions.

Labor Not Agreed On Bryan MANY ORGANIZATIONS REFUSS TO FOLLOW GOMFrR3 ALVVIC While Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor, is touring the country urging the elec tion of Bryan, It Is becoming evident' that all Is not harmony In the ranks of organized labor on the policy advo cated by the leader. It has been brought to the attention of the repub lican managers at the national head quarters that several large labor or ganizations have refused to follow Gompers in his support of Bryan. This repudiation of Gompers In the case of the railroad trainmen was made the subject of a statement which was issued by National Committeeman Victor Rosewater, who. is chairman of the literary committee. Gives Out Labor Statement. "That the position of the different labor organisations and different labor leaders Is by no : means In harmony with that of Samuel Gompers, who is trying to. execute a contract to deliver the labor vote to the democratic ticket, Is shown by th official statement made by P. H. Morrisey, grand master of the Brotherhood .ot Railroad Train men." said Mr. Rosewater. la his latest circular of instructions. No. 127 issued to all lodges and members un der date of Cleveland, Aug. 26, Mr. Morrisey says: "National legislative representatives of the Brotherhood of Locomotive En gineers. Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Engineers, and ur broth erhood presented to the republican na tional convention at Chicago in Ju&e a proposed anti-injunction plank as rep resenting the views of tlwse organiza tions and requested that It be placed in tbep latforra of that party. The convention declined to accept this pro posal. " 'Then the same plank was pre sented, to the democrats and they de clined, to accept it. Makes No Recommendation. " 'It would be presumptive on, our part to make any recommendation to our members as to how they should vote in the coming general election, but quite, naturally and properly we might say that every man interested in the labor movement, independent oi his affiliation with organization, should consider carefully the platform, candi dates, and their records and stand by our friends and help elect them, as well as oppose Qur enemies and help defeat them. "That is one example," concluded Mr. Rosewater," of the refusal of laboring men to follow Mr. Gompers in his pres ent political policy." IN POLITICS LIFE IS ONE.
