ROOSEVELT < IA D FORMED TO ELECT THEO DORE ROOSEVELT IN 1908 WHETHER HE WISHES IT OS NOT. A Roosevelt Third Term Club," with its object the election of Theo dore Roosevelt to the presidency in 1908. has been started in Chicago and is rapidly, establishing branches in all parts of the country. It is proposed to make Chicago the bead quarters of the club with branches in every county and city in the union. A platform has been adopted by by the club in which it is declared that Theodore Roosevelt is today, irrespective of party lines, the only logical president for the people of the United States. It is stated that Mr. Roosevelt has so valiantly and wholeheartedly reflex-ted the wishes of the people in his attempts to solve the grave problems which confront our government, that he has become a public necessity and an essential part in the political and social fa-, brie of the nation. The new club declares that Mr: Roosevelt has no right to refuse to accept the nomination in I9bs in the face of the people's demands, as the public alone is the judge. "It is not the province of Theodore Roosevelt," say the members of the club, "to say he will or will not be president. He who acts as president, acts solely as a servant of the people, and when called by them must come." In an interview in Chicago a few days ago, Edward A. Homer, presi dent of the Third Term club said: "It is not our purpose to appeal to politicians. In fact we don't wa* them. It is a matter which "is m come directly from the people and for myself I don't care whether Mr. Roosevelt likes it or not. To my mind he has nothing to say about it. He is the only man in whom Hie peo ple have absolute and implicit con fidence. We know that he is honest. His actions have demonstrated it be yond cavil." The platform adopted by the club is as follows: We, the members of the Roosevelt Third Term National League, having at heart the great social and political problems now confronting the people, and in order that the rights of the masses be protected and that nation al harmony be preserved, deem it imperative that Theodore Roosevelt be re-elected to the presidency in 190 S. We have come upon days in our social and political life, fermenting with distrust and requiring firm con trol. We view with alarm the evils al ready grown from the abuse of coj- $4,000 Nearly 2 acres 5 Clocks from Post OMice Dw. lling Worth *2000 Thirn Worth $500 Half cash $650 Fine Lot on Nob Sill Half cash I have other good offers L.

Wells WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON, .MONDAY, DECEMBER 1 porate power and see ra these evils a fertile field for the demagogue, from which might readily spring a political and social revolution, and believe that nothing short of tem perate and prayerful solicitude, on the part of the people, will hold our political and social structure intact. To the people irrespective of party lines is due the credit that their pres ident, today, is Theodore Roosevelt. A new era of real freedom and vital ity in our institutions of government and politics was demanded, and the* wisely saw in him a means to attain So valiantly and wholeheartedly has this man reflected the wishes of the people, that his personality has entered into and become a part of every department of our national life. He lias won the confidence of the people; and this fact alone, makes him the most potent factor in the solution of the present disturbing conditions. To "eliminate this per sonality—which is to eliminate that confidence —at a time when the peo ple, as a whole, are restive and trem bling with apprehension, is to invite national disorder. So closely woven is this bond be tween the president aud the people, that he has become to them a public necessity, an essential part of things in the social and political fabric. Therefore, Theodore Roosevelt is not only the one logical candidate for nomination, but manifestly is the on ly logical president for the people. Already it has been demonstrated that the frightened and vengeful wealth controlling forces of the conn try, will resort to any means to de feat his nomination for a presidential third term. We, therefore, must be on the alert and quick to action if we would save that which has al ready been accomplished by our il iusi rous president. We are not unmindful of the* fact that Theodore Roosevelt himself de clared in 1904, that "under no cir cumstances would he he a candidate for, or, would he accept another nomination." We challenge, however, his right to refuse to accept the presidency of the I'nited States for a third term, in the face of the people's demand, especially at a time when so piany undertakings of the highest import ance have been brought about and set in motion by him, and so subject them to the danger of an untried and unproved successor, to whom public confidence would be reluctantly ex tended, if at all. Manifestly, the selection of its president rests with the people. The public, alone, is judge. No man may say he will not accept. It is not the province of Theodore Roosevelt to say he will or will not be the presi dent. He, who acts as president, acts solely as a servant of the peo ple, and when called by them, must come. We further hold, that in point of fact his re-election in 1 ftos would not constitute a third term. He h»< been elected to the presidency hut once.- Inasmuch, however, as the issue has been so generally spoker of as a third term, the league hat; adopted that title. We. therefore, in the interest, of public welfare, demand that Theo lore Roosevelt bo nominated for the iresidetocy and he re-elected in 1 908, :d to trat end hereby pledge ou r Following are the officers and di rectors who have been elected: President—Edward A. Homer. Vice-Presidents —Milton F. Hos mer, Boston; George Nixon. Chicago. Secretary-Treasurer —E. C. Hayek. Assistant Secretary—George P. Locke. Directors—R. M. Shane and Win.

HAS BEEN A YEAR OF RETRIBUTION I9OA WILL LONG BE REMEMBER ED BY RAILWAY MAGNATES AS ONE OF MANY TRIA CHICAGO, Dec. 31.—The year 1906 will king be remembered as one of great trials and tribulations for railways and railway officials that have broken tbe law*. Partak ing of the zeal displayed by Presi dent Roosevelt and his administra tion, in moving against law-breakers and further stimulated to action by orders from Attorney General Moody] and even from the. president him self, the various federal district at torneys, during the year, have prose cuted more legal proceedings against railroads and their officials than ever before within tin equal period in the' history of the country. ( Most of these suits were brought for violations of the Elkins" law, agaiasl giving or receiving rebates, and, in most cases, they were instl-, toted, not only against the railways and their officials who gave the re-' bates, but also against the individu als or corporations that solicited or. accepted them. In most instances, prosecutions were successful. The fines assessed aggregate huddreds of thousands of < dollars.

Mr. Osthans is conceded to hold first place among American artists as a painter of hunting dog studies, and in the painting "A Forgetful Old Friend," he has set forth those mas terly qualities of his style which ap peal alike to critic and layman.
