has swallowed Bryanism completely. Tho
trouble with Wilson is, however, that his poli

Now, we don't like to c-ill such an amiable,
smooth, scholastic gentlemen as Woodrow
Wilson a demagogue and to charge him with
being a cheap panderer for votos; that would
be harsh. Yet it is within the province of tho
truthful chronicler of the times to remark that

have deserted the Bull Moose cause. One of

parent of the falsely named "Progressive"
movement now denounces that omincut Its
former, Walter Brown, and Mr. Dan JIanna,
that diainterestol champion of tho common
people, and a few others, as "a bunch of poli

TWENTY STATES REPORT GAINS.
Washington, Oct. 31. Confidential reports from 20
states, sought by Carmi Thompson, secretary to President
Taft, with no intention of making them public, show a remark
able change in sentiment, which is now sweeping strongly
toward the President. These reports do not include sweeping
statements of victory, but are calm analyses of the situation as
it actually exists in many localities, and they show conclusive
ly that President Talt is gaining ground.
Many of the business men and labor leaders to whom
inquiries were addressed, with a view-to getting some impar
tial information, expressed tho opinion that thousands of regu
lar Republicans who intended to vote for Gov. Wilson as a
best way to defeat Col. Roosevelt, now have caught the gen
eral feeling that there is an excellent chance to re-elect the
President and that they will cast their votes for him.
Look over our new line just in.
