me, and I have no more pain in my

Foley's Kidney Cure I am well and

pleasure to recommend it to those
needing a kidney medicine." E. A.
I have just attended a concert
given by the Williams' Original
Dixie Jubilee Singers, where they
sang in a 'packed house," and never
have I seen an audience better
pleased. I heard them many times
a couple of years ago, and some new
voices have been added with decided
improvement. The company is
better that ever. The quartet is
superb. As an 'audience pleaser"
they are not surpassed, if equalled,
by any colored singers on the road.

recorded in the office of the county

nounced that this could in no way
connect Senator Borah with any crim

testimony whatever. The government
attorneys declined to accept the offer.

Chief Eiecutlve Declares That His
Announced Policy Will Continue and
That the Wealthy Wrongdoer Will
Keokuk, la., Oct. '.President
Roosevelt began his river trip from
Keokuk duiing the morning. He ar
rived here at 9:10 and was met at the
dfpot by the governors of Iowa, Flor
Ida, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska,
both Dakotas, Oregon, Wyoming, Illi
nois and three companies of militia.
The morning was fair.Jjut it began
sprinkling shortly after the presiden
tial party started in carriages to Rand
park, where the president and others
Following the address, which was
heard by 20,000 people, the president
was driven to the lower lock of the
government canal and shortly before
11 o'clock boarded the steamer Mis
sissippi for the trip South. He re
viewed the di&play of J.00 pleasure
launches in the river and departed,
leading the flotilla of twenty big
steamboats and the launches.
The governors left at noon on a
special train for St. Louis.
Ten special excursion trains brought
in great crowds ju3t before the pres
ident arrived and the city was full of
strangers. The city of Keokuk was
decorated in the most lavish manner
in its history and entertained the
greatest crowd ever here.
WRONGDOER MUST SUFFER
President Declares That the Law Will
Keokuk, la, Oct. 2.In his address
at Rand park here President Roose
velt said, in part:
"At intervals during the last few
months the appeal has been made to
me not to enforce the law against cer
tain wrongdoers of great wealth be
cause to do so would interfere with
the business prosperity of the coun
try. Under the eftects of that kind of
fright which when sufficiently acute
we call panic this appeal has been
made to me even by men who or
dinarily behave as decent citizens.
One newspaper which has itself
strongly advanced this view gave
prominence to the statement of a cer
tain man of great wealth to the effect
that the so-called financial weakness
'was due entirely to the admitted in
tention of President Roosevelt to pun
ish the large moneyed interests which
had transgressed the laws.' I do not
admit this has been the main cause of
any business troubles we have had
but it is possible that it has been a
contributory cause. If so, friends, as
far as I am concerned it must be ac
cepted as a disagreeable but unavoid
able feature in a course of policy
which as long as I am president will
not be changed. In any great move
merit for righteousness, where the
forces of evil are strongly intrenched,
it is unfortunately inevitable that some
unoffending people should suffer in
company with the real offenders. This
is not our fault It is the fault of
those to whose deceptive action these
innocent people owe their false posi
tion. A year or two ago certain rep
resentatives of labor called upon me
and in the course of a very pleasant
conversation told me that they re
garded me as 'the friend of labor.' I
answered that I certainly was and that
I would do everything in my power
for the laboring man
Except Anything That Is Wrong.
I have the same answer to make to
the business man. I will do every
thing I can do to help business con
ditions except anything that is wrong.
And it would be not merely wrong
but infamous to fail to do all that can
be done to secure the punishment of
those wrongdoers whose deeds are
peculiarly reprehensible because they
are not committed under the stress of
want. Whenever a serious effort is
made to cut out what is evil in our
political life, whether the effort takes
the shape of warring against the gross
and sordid forms of evil in some mu
nicipality, or whether it takes the
shape of trying to secure the honest
enforcement of the law as against
very powerful and wealthy people,
there are sure to be certain individ
uals who demand that the movement
stop because it may hurt business. In
each case the answer must be that we
earnestly hope and believe that there
will be no permanent damage to busi
ness from the movement, but that if
righteousness conflicts with the fan
cied needs of business then the lat
ter must go to the wall. We can not
afford to substitute any other test for
that of guilt or innocence, of wrong
doing or welldoing, in judging any
man. If a man does well, if he acts
honestly, he has nothing to fear from
this administration. But so far as in
me lies the corrupt politician, great
or small, the private citizen who
transgresses the lawbe he rich or
poorshall be brought before the im
partial justice of a court. Perhaps I
am most anxious to get at the poli
tician who is corrupt, because he be
trays a great trust, but assuredly I
shall not spare his brother corruption
ist who shows himself a swindler in
business life and, according to our
power, crimes of fraud and cunning
shall be prosecuted as relentlessly as
crimes of brutality and physical vio
